Party Panda and amazing you meets petal passion dsp


Todays cards feature the Petal Passions dsp.  I really like the geometric feel to the background dsp.  The happy birthday thinlits dies look great in pacific point and layered ontop of a second happy birthday cut out of whisper white.  The panda is holding 3 balloons, the first coloured with pacific point, the second, pool party and the third soft sky.  The base of the card is pool party.

On the flowers below I have coloured in with the stampin blends markers.  I have used bermuda Bay and Pool party.


Both cards were cut out using the Brother Scan n cut machine.

Pretty Little Bird



I just love the images from the petals & more thinlits dies, beautiful flowers combined with a beautiful bird image.  On the top card I have used peekaboo peach and berry burst for the flowers, and always artichoke for the branch.  I have stamped the bird in memento and used blender pen to colour in.

The second card I have used pink pirouette and berry burst for the flowers and for the ornamental strip and the birds I have used dapper denim.

Heartfelt Blooms Sale-a-bration Stamp Set in dapper denim

The heartfelt bloom saleabration stamp set is a beautiful flower.  It lends itself to a monocromatic themed card which is how I have used it in the cards in my post today.


My first card I have stamped it on a layer of whisper white and used a piece of colour theory paper to stamp my greeting on and then layer on.  I have finished it off with some pearl basic jewels.  The happy birthday is from the perennial birthday stamp set.


On my second card, I have stamped off each time to create a softer look.  Again using dapper denim.  The greeting for this card is from Lift Me Up. 


My third card is has 3 different tones, the darkest image is full strength, and then stamped consecutively without reinking inbetween.  I love this look.  I have layered with paper from the colour theory dsp paper stack.  Greeting is also stamped on colour theory dsp and I have again used the Happy Birthday from Lift Me Up.


The card below is a CASE from the SAB catalogue but instead of using pinks, I have used dapper denim.  Just love this colour.




On this card the flower is the focal image, giving it a nice crisp look.


On this card, I have stamped the flowers on a piece of the colour theory dsp, giving an altogether different look.

Wedding invitations using Detailed Floral Thinlits Dies

Just recently I had the awesome pleasure of making a friend's wedding invites.  I made several samples but the one she loved was using the Detailed Floral Thinlits Dies.  Here are some photos of the end product and the process involved.  Cardstock is Night of Navy and whisper white.




The starting of the process of running the base card through the bigshot machine.  Here is some confetti.  There was tonnes of it by the end.








Invites are now ready to be delivered.  They were thrilled with them.  So was I :)



I also made the placecards for the reception.  I was really happy with the way they came up.








Placecards on the table at the reception.



As a surprise I also made the thank you cards.

Petal Passion DSP meets Stampin' Blends




Today's cards use the designer series paper called Petal Passion.  Is black images printed on white paper.  I have coloured in using Stampin' Up!s new Stampin' Blends.  These are alcohol markers which are high quality, dual-tipped markers.  They come in 12 exclusive Stampin' Up! colours - each with a light and dark shade - as well as ivory, bronze and a colour lifter.  On my cards below I have used Pink Pirouette, Calypso Coral and Pumplin Pie.


On the card above is the one side of the dsp.  You can see the flowers that I have coloured in.  On the card below, I was pleasantly surprised to see that the ink came through the paper giving the black leaf images a lift.  I actually prefer this side and decided make up this card instead and coloured in a second piece to create the card above.  The greeting for this card is from the stamp set picture perfect birthday.
