Who wants Birthday Cake?

Dear Crafters,

Today I share a card made using the Build a Birthday stamp set, one of my favourites in the current annual catalogue. If you haven’t purchased this stamp set, it is a must have. Not only can you make birthday cards with it, but you can turn the candles into a card for Christmas! Be sure to stay tuned in the following weeks to see one of those!!!

I have used Watermelon Wonder with the Cherry on Top Designer Washi Tape as my colour scheme.

In this pack, you get 5 yards on each roll in the coordinating colours: Bermuda Bay, Crushed Curry, Cucumber Crush, Pool Party, Tip Top Taupe, Watermelon Wonder.

Build a Birthday Stampin' Up!

I stamped the cake stand first in Tip Top Taupe ink, before adding strips of washi tape, layering them one on top of the other to create the cake layers. I stamped the flags and the sentiment last in Watermelon Wonder ink.

I added 2 small flowers (Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack) and layered them on top of each other with a rhinestone in the centre.

This card was so quick and easy to create and at little cost using washi tape!!!

It’s a Girl!

Dear Crafters,

With loads of my friends and work colleagues who are pregnant at the moment, I thought I had better stock up on some baby cards. Not knowing if they are having a boy or a girl, I thought I had better do a few of each!!!!

I just love this cute Happy Heart embossing folder, so needed to include some on my baby cards. I have used the colours Crisp Cantaloupe, Calypso Coral and Real Red along with some of the Stacked With Love DSP.

Baby Girl

I stamped the jumpsuit with one of the images from Something For Baby, and die cut it with the coordinating Baby’s First Framelits. These two products can be purchased as a bundle saving you 15%.

Baby Girl

I added a heart punched from some Real Red Core’dinations card stock using the Itty Bitty Accents punch pack.

Be sure to decorate the inside panel of your card and even the envelope!

I would love you to comment below with your thoughts on this creation.

Flower Heart Pinwheel Card

Hello Crafters,

Today I share with you a cute idea using the large heart punch, yes that’s right, the petals are made from hearts!

Flower Heart Pinwheel

To make this card I punched a 2 1/2″ circle out of scrap card to use as the base to stick the petals on to. Fold this circle in half and then half again then lay it flat.

I punched 6 Hearts out of Primrose Petals cardstock and 6 hearts out of Raspberry Ripple cardstock.

Each heart is folded in half.

Glue each petal onto the centre of the circle so the tip of the heart is in the centre and the next petal, slightly overlays the previous one. When you get to the last petal, lift up the first petal slightly so the last one fits underneath it.

Flower Heart Pinwheel

Layer the card base with some coordinating cardstock and then another layer of white.

I cut by hand the stem from Gumball Green cardstock and punched the 2 leaves from the Bird Builder punch and added them with glue dots.

Glue the flower to the top of the stem. I also added 2 small flowers (from the new Itty Bitty Accents Punch Set) to the centre and added a rhinestone basic jewel.

Flower Heart Pinwheel

You can see here I embossed the hearts of this flower with the Polka Dots TIEF after I punched them out. It just gives it a bit more of a WOW!

I haven’t added a sentiment yet, but I will once I know who I am going to give the card to, whether its a birthday, thinking of you, or thank you!

 

I loved this Flower so much I made this pretty Shadowbox Frame for a friends baby and a special Stair Step card in coordinating colours!
