Rhino Card with Tufted Embossing Folder

Hello there and Happy Sunday!
Today's card uses the very lovely Animal Expedition DSP teamed with the Animal Friends dies which (happily) fit the images on one of the sheets of this paper as well as the stamps, of course! I've teamed the die cut image with the new tufted embossing folder and I couldn't resist adding a little sparkle ;-)  Let's see...
Loving the tufted embossing folder for simple textured backgrounds...
  I love how simply die cutting these DSP images are so handy for a card in a hurry.
 Add a vellum stitch edge circle, silver thread and a tiny strip of glimmer paper.
I'm loving this layout for cards at the moment so I really hope you are too because there's more where this came from, lol!
Well, thanks for looking today, I'll be back tomorrow with another new card.

Peach Wedding Card using Jar of Love and Large Letter Framelits.

Following on from yesterday's RSVP to a wedding we have been invited to in September I have an actual Wedding card to share today! This time though, it was made for a work colleague to give to friends of her's.
She requested it be made in peach tones and had seen my navy blue wedding card I have now made a couple of times already so we went with that! And I must just warn you that it's a picture heavy post ;-)
So, I used Jar of Love flowers in Grapefruit Grove and Calypso Coral teamed with the Large Letter Framelits to make this card...
 I stamped the flowers half way up where the die cut will be then cut the letters out before adhering with foam strips. The strips go a really long way and make it super quick to add these letters.
 I used some of the coral ombre ribbon and added a sentiment from Floral Phrases underneath.
 I printed the happy couples name inside and added a few matching stamped hearts...
 And decorated the lid of the box with more flowers, to match the letters.
And one final photo to finish :-D
 The lady I made it for was really pleased, let's hope the happy couple are too ;-)
Thanks so much for looking today, Hope you get a chance to craft this weekend!

Guy Greetings for a Nautical RSVP

Todays card uses a stamp set that (sadly) retired recently, Guy Greetings. I will be keeping hold of my set as it's just so versatile and I hope you managed to get a hold of this stamp set?
So, we have been invited to a dear friends daughters wedding later in the year and her gorgeous invite has a nautical theme. So of course, I had to make a little RSVP in a similar style...
I kept the RSVP fairly simple but I do have grander plans for the actual wedding card ;-)
 This navy gingham ribbon is still available, yay! It's awesome for tying bows!
 Here is my little RSVP with the stunning original invite. I love what she did with these <3 p="">
 And isn't this anchor uncannily similar to the original? How fortunate!
So, I have a few ideas for the Wedding card with this theme and of course I'll share it with you after the event.
Thanks so much for looking today and I'll be back tomorrow with another make for you :-)

Bird Banter with Stampin' Blends.

Hi and welcome!
Today's card uses the (retired) Bird Banter stamp set. Did you purchase this? Well, I figured I would still share this with you so if you managed to get hold of it while it was available then lucky you! I loved it :-D
So, we actually made this card in one of my Blends classes and I couldn't choose just one bird so I went with two >-<
 The little background spots are made with the same colour blends pens topped with drops using the fine tip glue pen.
 To colour this parrot I used the following pens:
Light and Dark: Coral, Daffodil and Bermuda Bay plus light Smoky Slate and a colourless blender for the face.
 And for this cute little Cockatiel I used Light and Dark Daffodil, Light Smoky Slate and the colourless Blender pen.
 Of course I used Light and Dark Old Olive for the leaves too :-)
Finish with a little gold thread and top with a sentient to finish.
So, I hope you like today's card? Quite a few of the Blends pens are back in stock with more due to arrive shortly (customs issues are delaying them, I believe), I'm looking forward to adding to my collection!
OK, I'll be back on Friday with another card, 'till then, Happy Stamping!

Pink Ombre Delightfully Detailed Paper

Hello there,
I have another card for you today using the Delightfully Detailed laser-cut paper.  For this card I used a simple watercolour wash with ink pads to create a pink ombre effect starting with Melon Mambo then Flirty Flamingo then finishing with Powder Pink at the top...
 Once it was dry (I used my heat tool to help speed this up) I added it to a same sized white card background before layering onto black card and wrapping with Powder Pink shimmer ribbon.
I finished the card with a sentiment (from Picture Perfect Birthday) heat embossed in white and layered it onto a Smoky Slate base.
I've really enjoyed using this paper and still have a couple more cards to share so I do hope your loving it too ;-)
Thanks so much for looking today, back soon with another make!
