Birthday, Kids Cards

Cute as a Mouse

Dear Crafters,

Today I share a card using the Balloon Builders stamp set from the Occasions catalogue. I have to admit that when I first saw this set, it wasn’t one that was going to the top of my list to purchase. But, as I looked at it more and more and saw the samples in the catalogue, I had to make this card I share today.

The card base is Delightful Dijon. The top layer is Whisper White, which has a piece of Washi Tape added to the bottom.

Mouse Balloon Builders #stampinup

I stamped the mouse in Smoky Slate ink using a variety of the stamps and his nose in Rose Red. The balloon and sentiment is stamped in Delightful Dijon ink and fussy cut then added with a dimensional. I tied a bow with some Gold Cording Trim and adhered it with a glue dot.

Christmas Wreath

Hello Stampers,

Well I have finally started my Christmas Decorations and my Christmas Wreath for the front door. What do you think?

I was going to add some more festive flurry die cuts, but then I thought it probably doesn’t need them and would it look too busy with more around the ring? Yes, I stopped myself and here is the finished product.

Stampin Up Christmas Wreath

I used Cherry Cobbler Stitched Edge Grosgrain Ribbon ($15.95 for 9.1m, item code 132135) from the Holiday Catalogue to wrap around the foam ring.

The ornament is hanging from the Silver Ribbon ($8.95 for 9.1m, item code 132137)

I made the ornament with the Festive Flurry Bundle ($83.95 clear, $95.95 wood). This bundles includes the Festive Flurry Stamp Set and the Festive Flurry Framelits Dies saving you 15% by purchasing as a bundle.

I used Smoky Slate and Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Inkpads and Stampin’ Dimensionals between each Flurry. To finish it off I added a Frosted Finishes Embellishment ($11.95 for 12, item code 132150). These embellishments are adorned with rhinestones ~ you know how much I love a bit of bling!!!!

Happy stamping,
