Happy Birthday with Game On

Today I have 2 special cards for you today! This stamp set is so very cool as you can spruce up the colours to suit absolutely anything. As you can see I have completely changed up the colours here - not just red, black and white which is what you would typically find on a deck of cards. I have also included a fancy fold (bottom right).

The standard C6 card has some background stamping in Pacific Point ink, then some strip layers behind the white sentiment also stamped in Pacific Point. To finish off the front I stamped and fussy cut the deck of cards images x3 in different colours. 

Dont forget the inside panel... lots of dice in different colours 

For this fancy fold you will need a full A4 sheet of cardstock.  Cut the height of your card from short side to 14.9cm, the remaining piece will become your belly band - you can choose to cut the belly band a little slimmer if you like. Score the cardbase at 3.5cm, 14cm & 24cm. Now its time to decorate your card. 

I chose to add some panels in the colour scheme stamping them wth the images in the Game On Stamp Set- I think I used every single stamp! 

Don’t forget the inside panel! Position your inside panels like a hand of cards. 

Here's a birds-eye of both sides of this card, where the panels go and where to stamp. (Stay tuned for a YouTube Tutorial, they are coming soon)

The colours for this card were thanks to the people over at #sucolourchallenge with their January colour challenge. I loved it - thank you!

Nothings Better Than Cocktails - Z Fold Card

We are back in lockdown!! No way Melbourne. Luckily it is only for 5 days - fingers crossed - so surely we can say "we got this". I'm sure a few of us reached for the top shelf over the weekend and so this card may be just the right kind of card to showcase today. It's a Z fold card that I made along with the help of my very good friend Sue in Adelaide. 

This card is super fun to make and I have made a couple others too. It was fun to ink up this stamp set for the first time and also to colour all those fancy cocktails. Yummy, I may or may not have had a cocktail at my desk to help me along the way.  You will need to cut lots of images to fix along the top edge of this card, I started out with just x5 but it wasn't enough it didn't 'fill the space' enough, so I added another couple of drinks and some extras down the side of the inside panel. 

To get a two tone effect simply ink up some sponge daubers and sponge on the colour crossing over in the middle just a little. I coloured the lime wedge and umbrella with my Stampin blends.

For the sentiment, I adhered some foam sheet to some Rainbow Glimmer Paper and die cut the word "cocktail" from the die set, it raises it perfectly and there's no need to fiddle around with bits n pieces of dimensionals. 

This card folds flat and fits inside a standard envelope. Take care when sticking your images to the top that you stay 'within' the envelope widths, or you can make a custom envelope to match.

Nice bright colours for this palette.

Paper Piecing with Retired See a Silhouette DSP

Do you have too much retired paper like me? Well it doesn't mean you can't still use them right? I often find that I just didn't get a chance to use it while it was still a current product but I still want to use and show you what I created with it. 

Creating these cards was quite therapeutic. Fussy cutting is one of my favourite things in crafting, don't get me wrong I do love it when images have a matching die, but there is something calming about cutting out images too. 

These are great cards to have on hand for any type of occasion. 
I layered all my cut pieces over a whisper white panel, for this particular card below I added embossed and stamped some big watermark patches. 

I love those flowers and the watercoloured look of them. 

Blues and purples

I think I used every last cut piece!

Slim Line Card - Lets Colour with True Love DSP

Today we begin another lockdown period here in Melbourne. I'm lucky that I have my crafting to keep me occupied. The True Love designer series paper kept me busy today I coloured away with my Stampin Blends (alcohol markers) while having a cup of coffee this morning.        

Embossing my sentiments has become my new thing! These colours remind me of an English garden.

Dont forget the inside! I fussy cut some of the flowers from the edge of the DSP for the inside. You could colour them in however you like or keep them black and white.
