Dragonfly Dreams Inlaid Die Cutting Card

I have a little monochrome card for you today using the Dragonfly Dreams dies and I teamed them with "A Little Foxy" DSP stack to make this inlaid die cut card...
 I added oodles of Wink Of Stella to the Flirty Flamingo dragonflies.
Notice the cute, grey heart DSP is to the rear of these dragonflies...
 I only added tombow adhesive to the central bodies of the dragonflies for a little dimension.
Well, that's me for today, thanks for stopping by!

One Wild Ride Concertina Card

Hello there,
I have a card today that I made quite a while ago. I have held off sharing it with you as I was going to make a video to go with it but it keeps getting put off. Sooo, I'm biting the bullet and sharing the card for you today and if you'd like the video, let me know and I'll do it next week, I promise ;-)
 I used the Large Letter Framelits and gold glimmer card.
 With "One Wild Ride" stamp set, heat embossed in white.
And when folded to send it looks like this fitting into a simple, small box.
I stamped the lid of the box to match
One final picture of the card out. Remember, if you'd like a video then please do let me know :-)
Thanks for looking today!

Tasty Trucks Shaker Card without dies!

I've a new take on a previous card for you today. Last year I made a fun shaker card (I still love a good shaker!) without the use of dies. Granted, it's slightly quicker if you have dies but if you have a great stamp set that doesn't come with them you can still make a shaker, see....
You can get this fun truck stamp set FREE during Sale-a-Bration 2017, spend £45 and choose an item from the SaB catalogue and there are no limits to how many you can earn!

 Love the Cupcakes and Carousels suite.
 And this sentiment is also in the FREE stamp set - Tasty Trucks.
And to see how to make the Shaker Card without dies please see THIS TUTORIAL.
Right, that's all from me for today, thansk for stopping by!

PopStand Card Video Tutorial

I'm super excited to share this video tutorial with you today! I have called it a PopStand card 'cause it pops up and it stands by itself too. You can see my first version HERE using the "Lift Me Up" bundle.
For this video tutorial (please scroll down) I decided to use "Nailed It" to make a more masculine card....
 ...but I think you could use sooooo many different stamps with this card design. You'll hear me mention these stamps/dies in the video including Birthday Fiesta, Umbrella Weather and No Bones About It, to name just a few!
OK, back to this card ;-) I used the Serene Scenery DSP pad as I like the parquet flooring effect but it would look great made using the matching Urban Underground DSP pack too.
 I like adding the tools on acetate (window sheets) so they have a little wobble to them. Check out my Insta feed for a boomerang ;-)
 And of course, it's easy to post!
So, here's the video for you!
Please do watch the video for instructions on construction and tips but here are the measurements for you as promised 
1st sheet: Cut to 14.8cm x 17.8, score at 14.8cm.
2nd sheet: 14.8cm x 21.8cm. Score at 18.5cm, 15.8cm, 14.8cm, 13.8cm.
Measure  across and mark on 13.8cm score line at 1.5cm, 3cm, 4.5cm, 10.3cm, 11.8cm, 13.3cm. Repeat along 15.8cm score line.
Imperial (this will be a slightly larger card)
1st sheet: Cut to 6" x 7"
2nd sheet: 6" x 8. Score at 7.5", 6.5", 6", 5.5".
Measure  across and mark on 6.5" score line at 5/8", 1+1/4", 1+7/8", 4+1/8", 4+3/4", 5+3/8". Repeat on 5.5"
And please, feel free to "Pin" this picture so you can find this tutorial again easily :-)

Using SU! Lift Me Up Bundle for a Jems Blog Hop Day

Hello and welcome to today's post which is also part of the Jem's Blog Hop Day. Yay!
That means loads of fabulous inspiration and the theme this month is "Hearts - not just for Valentines".
Now, I don't know about you but Valentines is not really a big thing in our house. Granted, that's mostly because we have three birthdays during February here :-)
So, I have a subtle use of hearts for my card today using the very lovely 'Lift Me Up' bundle to make this card. I was totally inspired by a Christmas card I received (designed by Tesco) and just had to make my own version and I thought these balloons were perfect for this design.
 I have called it a "Pop Stand Card" as it's part pop up and part stand up ;-) but it may be known by another name??? Let me show you......
 The balloons are held up with window sheets.
 and I used the matching (FREE SaB papers) Carried Away and stamps from the bundled set across the bottom.
 You can see here this card stands on it's own and folds flat for posting, fitting in a regular 15cm square envelope.
  I am so pleased with this card today and I will definitely be making a video to share with you exactly how to make it in the next week :-) Watch this space!

Well, it's time to hop forward to see what delights the lovely Linda has created for you or you can go back to see Julies wonderful ideas.
