Detailed Floral Thinlits Dies Gate Fold Card with a Video by SU!

Hello there, 
I have another pretty card using the floral Thinlits Dies, today in Flirty Flamingo. I do love this colour and I decided to make a gate fold-ish style card with the dies, see...
I did back the cut out areas with white card so you couldn't see the writing inside then I used thin navy twine to hold the card closed.
OK, so here's a little video, with the ever lovely Shannon, showing how to make a couple of projects with these dies including a card like the one shown here today :-) Thanks Stampin' Up! :-)
 I also added a little stamping inside using the matching  Floral Phrases stamps.
And one final photo for today.
I do hope you like these dies as much as I do and *Don't forget the BONUS DAYS promo running this July - spend in July to get coupons in August! More details HERE* so July is a great time to purchase these products for freebies in August too!

Llama Love Card using Birthday Fiesta stamps by Stampin' Up!

Hello there,
Today's card is a llama card in a Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight and Bermuda Bay colour combo for a fun, party-style card! Take a peek...
 I used the baby wipe technique (for a video tutorial please see HERE) for the rug and tucked a little strip of pompom trim under for a bit of a fun twist.
 I used the same baby wipe ink pad for the sentiment which is from the hostess set Pun Intended.
 Die cut streamers in matching colours
I die cut the llama too before popping him up on dimensionals.
OK, that's all from me for today, I'll be back tomorrow with more! Thanks so much for looking today :-)

A Mini Wreath Using Stampin' Up's Jar of Love

Hello there,
 I have another card using Jar of Love today for you. I don't think I have made any cards with this set as the catalogue suggests ;-)
So, I had stamped these mini branches when I made my larger wreath card (see it HERE) a couple of weeks ago but I found them unnecessary so decided to make a mini wreath just with them, take a look...
 I thoguht these branches had a certain retro vibe about them, I'm thinking Orla Keily, or even maybe an olympics style, hence the vellum scroll with the sentiment...
See how I added tiny pieces of dimensionals under one end and glued the branch end down to the card? It adds a bit more dimension when you see it in real life ;-)
  I heat embossed the sentiment as it takes ages to dry when you stamp on Vellum but you can leave it (overnight, maybe) if you don't have clear embossing powder.
So, that's it from me for today but I'll be back tomorrow with another card, 'till then, happy stampin'

New Baby Boy Shaker Card using SU! Baby's First Dies.

Hello there,
So, just recently my DH became a Grandaddy and I, a Step Nanna! Obviously, we are all thrilled and excited for the new addition to the family and of course I needed to make a special card! I always love a shaker card (as you probably know) but I especially love to make something thats just a bit more special when it's likely the card will be kept forever, as is usual when a baby is born ;-)
So, I made this card to celebrate the arrival of baby Jackson...
 For a video tutorial sharing step-by-step how to make a Shaker Card please pop over HERE and for a video with my tips for using the new Foam Strips (especially with Baby's First Framelits) please pop over HERE
And if you have any questions please do ask ;-) I used some Serene Scenery paper for behind the windows, probably not the first DSP you'd think of for a baby card but those teeny-tiny spots are perfect, don't you think?
 I have a couple of these lovely (retired) wooden sentiments left still and they are just perfect for a baby card.
 I used Layering Love inside but stamped it off for a subtle look. Again, I think this sentiment is simply perfect for any new parents and their baby :-)
 And one final photo for today.
Well, the new Mummy liked the card but what do you think? Thanks for looking today,
Back soon with more!
