Birthday, Handmade Cards, Kids Cards, Stampin' Up!

Happy 7th Birthday Nicola!

Dear Crafters,

Today I have another project using the brand new Foxy Friends Bundle and the Large Number Framelits. Sorry for the reflection, it has been quite gloomy here in Melbourne and very difficult to photograph!

This card was made for a gorgeous little girls 7th birthday party that we attended on Saturday.

Foxy Friends, Kitty Cat, 7th Birthday, DIY, #stampinup, Handmade

I started by applying some of the A Little Foxy Designer Series Paper to the background of the card and then a grass was added. I cut a strip of cucumber crush card and used the fringe scissors to create this.

I stamped the cat & punched the pieces out with the Fox builder punch. The stump and the mushrooms were stamped and fussy cut.

Can you see the Stampin’ Write Marker lines on the Banner and the 7? How did I draw that line so evenly around them, you ask? Well, when I die cut the images, before I took them out of the die, I traced that line around the inside of the die and did small dots, then I removed the card from the metal dies. Clever hey?!!!!!

I had great fun creating this card for Nicola’s 7th Birthday party on Saturday!

Pink Ombre

Hello Crafters,

I was at the hairdressers the other day and the lady opposite me was having her hair coloured to be the ombre look and it gave me an idea.

So with my trusty fringe scissors I came up with this.

I have seen many cards made using this technique and being at the hairdressers reminded me to have a go!

Pink Ombre

It was a very quick card to make, selecting 3 colours of similar tones from lighter to darker. You could also do this in blues, greens, golds or even grays.

The ribbon is Pink Pirouette coordinating with the top layer. The middle layer is Blushing Bride and the bottom layer is Primrose Petals.

The sentiment is from the stamp set, Memorable Moments.

The flower is the Petite Petals punch and the centre is one of the punches from the Itty Bitty Shapes Pack (#118309).

Pink Ombre

The fringe scissors are awesome and makes this so much quicker than cutting each slice individually!

Pink Ombre

I love the rhinestones to give it an elegant touch and it really does finish it off nicely. Why don’t you give this a try.
