Cube cards Blossom Party DSP

Hello there,
Today's card is a card we made in class last week and I also wanted something a bit special for my friends birthday so I sent this. I was totally inspired by a card I saw by my friend Kim and I followed a video tutorial too but at the moment I'm blogging from my iPad so I'll have to add the links next week when I get to my laptop, sorry :-/.
I used a base of Sahara Sand card with the new All Bloom paper stack choosing just 3 sheets from the stack (not easy to pick just 3!) which meant we had 6 patterns on the card, I also made one with the postage stamp punch and one with the hexagon punch. Anyway, have look, see what you think...
Front of the one with hexagon and three small butterflies,
The back showing the little tag for writing on, Made using the Deco Labels framelits, I attached it to the card with these cute little paper clips, they are in the clearance rack for just £2.19 right now but only while stocks last!
Ok, postage stamp version, I added the sentiment from my new photopolymer set "Age Awareness" in lost lagoon and a larger butterfly too
The back, of this one is much the same as the other :-)
Then adding a flower to the top of the centre stack using a single layer using the Pansy punch and two Petit Petals punched flowers
We also made an envelope using the envelope punch board 
But we left it loose when we secured it so the card wouldn't get too squashed!
And finally the two together again.
Ok, that's me done for today, I'll be back hopefully tomorrow with another card for you!
And I'll pop all the links on here when I get home,
Stampin' hugs form me for today, 

Something for Baby Framelits and Stamp Set

I'm still on the iPad so no links again today and for some reason known only to blogger one of the sets of photos for a post I'd planned seem to be unavailable so I'm just going to remind you to check out this weeks deals, they have two colours of chevron ribbon on offer this week, go to my shop via the link at the end of this post or in my right hand side bar >>> 
Please also visit my Facebook page and scroll back a couple if days to see how gorgeous these ribbons look tied to your gifts, they're not just for cards you know!  Again, link at the end of this post :-)
Ok, onto today's card(s), we made this at stamp-a-stack last time so as it was a card you might keep not knowing when you need it I chose a neutral lemon (so saffron and daffodil delight) with crumb cake colour way....
We die cut the onesie out with the framelits from paper from the moonlight stack, inking the edges and adding it on foam pads with a punched heart, background was stamped with the duck using Versamark ink
And finally, I made the same card in a blue colour way too, here they are together, please click on any picture to make them bigger :-)
Ok, that's all from me for now, we are off the Great Yarmouth today and I'm sure I'll be keeping you posted on Facebook if you want to follow me there :-)

Kinda Eclectic with Birthday Surprise by Stampin' Up! to make a card for a man :-)

Hello there,
I have another card today using Kinda Eclectic, it's so fab for quick and easy cards, I literally made this in about 15 minutes, not bad huh? And it works so well with my other new stamp set from the new CATALOGUE; Birthday Surprise, as the images in this set are also kind of rustic looking too IYKWIM? I'll show you a close up in a mo... Anyway, let me show you the whole card first, shall I?
See the leaves from Kinda Eclectic are patchy (rustic) and I managed to squeeze a few sequins in there too with the linen thread, not too girly eh? ;-) 
(All products used are listed at the end as usual, x)
and a close up of the Birthday Surprise sentiment, I can see this being used a lot for card for guys as it's no nonsense and would make a fab focal image too....
and a final picture of the card, I was happy with this one :-)
OK, that's all from me today, I've had classes the last couple of days but I should be back to blogging most days now again,
Thanks for looking today and I hope you liked the card

Stampin' Up! Kinda Eclectic super quick card with Top Tips!

I'm here with a really quick and easy card using the new Kinda Eclectic stamp from the brand new SU! Catalogue, if you don't have a copy yet please message me and we can get one to you or take a look online :-)
Right, so here is the card in a Strawberry Slush, Lost Lagoon and Sahara Sand colour way (for a different version please pop over to my Facebook page and see the card I shared there yesterday)
I love this stamp set but I do have a TOP TIP for you for the circles stamp included- or any clear mount stamp with a top and bottom really! 
 now, I don't use the stickers supplied as I find the stamps stick better to the blocks without them, so to make sure I have the stamp the correct way up I mark the back using a sharpie, I put a spot at the top and a line at the bottom like this...
See I also used my yummy new sequins to decorate the front and add a little something extra without bulk..

 And TOP TIP 2: is to use Crystal Effects to adhere sequins, it dries clear and as you only use a tiny amount for this application it dries quickly too :-)))
OK, that's all for today, I'll be back tomorrow with another class card,
Thanks for looking and for your sweet comments on my video too :-)
