Tabs For Everything and Large Numbers Framelits for a Teen

Hey! Look at all this blogging. Two days in a row! Get me ;-) Lol!
Today I have a cute ahem, cool card for a new teenager. I've used the Tabs for Everything for the background and as all teens/kids want to see they've hit the next big number so '13' has pride of place...
A little tale about numbers from my home... Once upon a time, when he was much younger, I spent many an hour making Josh a birthday card (our biggest boy.) Unfortunately I neglected to add his special, new number (no space or it didn't fit in my design or something.) So, of course, it was the first thing he said when he opened said card. Lesson learned, lol!

So having told you that, I must also tell you that these number dies are retiring (eek) and I think they are an essential for any significant birthday/anniversary and not just for those pesky kids, ha ha ha...
 Add to a background made with Tabs for Everything in Lemon-Lime Twist and Navy - a classic combo! And you're good to go!
So, do your friends and family love a number too?
Thanks so much for looking today, I'll be back soon with another make :-)

Half Glitter Large Letters Birthday Card

Hi there!
It's another wet day here but I have managed to get plenty of jobs done this week including all the washing so my weekend off will be a tiny bit more of a weekend off ;-)
But right now let's see the card for today. I made this card made for our daughters birthday in March and I used some SaB papers (Bubbles and Fizz) with a simple half glittered name and a touch of black to make it pop! Let's see...
 To make these half glitter letters I added three stacked strips of Myths and Magic washi to thick white card, wide enough to get all the letters across, before die cutting with large letter framelits. I then die cut the name twice more from thick white card and layered the letters up to make them stand out on the card.
 This sentiment is from the (retiring) Happiest Of Days stamp set, heat embossed in white onto black card. I also added a little silver tinsel trim (which is in the clearance rack now for just £3.30 for a pack with both red and silver! Go!)
 I was chatting with a fellow demo recently about why adding a little black to some cards was a good choice (she didn't agree) but I think it gives this card is perfect for showing how black can give your project just a little lift, don't you?
Stacked die cuts are much easier than dimensionals for thin/small shapes like this.
Adding a little DSP inside ties it all together. I don't always do this but I really should do it more as often as all you need is a couple of little offcuts that usually end up in the bin anyway ;-)
 And that's it, the birthday girl (said she) loved her card and now, what do you think?
That's all from me for today, I'm going to get editing some more pics now so I will be back to share another card with you tomorrow :-)
'Till then, happy stamping!

Cute Mermaid with Blue Hair from Magical Day!

Hello there from a warm but now rainy Southampton! Although I must point out that I started writing this blog post when it was hot and sunny - last weekend *-* Time just seems to have run away with me this last week :-)
So, I've another Mermaid from the Magical Day stamp set (which I still call Myths and Magic. Every. Single. Time.) card for you today. I love how cute her hair looks in Pool Party blue...
I used my blends to colour her in, which will hopefully be available again to purchase very soon!
This set is leaving us at the end of May (maybe even sooner though) which I'm so sad about :-(
But the tag she sits on is from the Cake Soiree dies which are staying - albeit not with the 10% bundle saving, so if you have your eye on that set might be worth another look...
and finally the sentiment is from the (also soon to be retiring) Happiest of Days stamp set.
How cute is that pink tinsel ribbon?
OK, that's it from me, I have a lot of fun cards to share with you so I'll try my hardest to get some posts up on here this week. I hope you have a chance to craft this week, too...

Weather Together in Dapper Denim

Hello and welcome to another Inspire. Create. Challenge :-)
This week the theme is Retiring Colours and I was spoilt for choice! I am going to miss all of these colours.. And I've made this card just as the sun comes out in the UK, using Weather Together! Bit of a fail, right? Anyway, hopefully the card will banish some of that rain we have been having for a little while at least?!
 I kept with the monochrome look with just a Soft Sky baby wiped swipe background on shimmer white card.
 I added a few of the Epoxy Shapes for some 3d raindrops.
 Adding the brolly with dimensionals just gives this card a little lift!
 So, I do hope you'll head over to see what other projects the rest of the DT have made on the  I.C.C BLOG HERE :-) And of course enter your projects here too!
