Two Cards Today! A Birthday Card and a Birth-Day Card!

I hope you are enjoying the bank holiday weekend? We have been to B&Q already this weekend to get the supplies to start painting the new extension this week :-/ but we are yet to start. Today, we will start today...
But before that, cards! As you probably know the exciting new catalogue is going to be with us soon (4th June) but the downside of that is we will be losing lots of the lovely current stamps and dies. So I figured as I have so much to share still I would do a double card post today ;-)
The first card today is one I made this card for my eldest boys birthday a while ago...
 I started by randomly watercolouring a piece of watercolour card before drying. Die cut with the Celebrate You thinlints and then stack it onto three more die cuts made from thick white card.
TIP: Use a coordinating colour card to layer up your sentiment (see next card) for a different effect.
 Pop up the centre section using the rectangle framelits (a similar technique to THIS card) and finish with stars, a heat embossed sentiment, some enamel shapes and a little twine :-)
 And for the second card today I have a new baby card or a different kind of  Birth-Day card ;-)
I made this for my lovely friend who had a beautiful baby boy recently and I just couldn't resist making an Eclipse card using the Large Letters framelits and the First Steps stamp set to make this...
 The "Welcome Baby" sentiment is layered as before but this time using the Well Written dies - which are not retiring, Yay!
TIP: Use foam strips to pop up the letter die cuts and make this card super speedily!
 I do love an eclipse card, it just makes any card special. Sadly this stamp set and letter dies will be leaving us though, this catalogue change :-( I'm seriously going to miss these both of these items, although I'm definitely keeping both of mine.
If you love these or other items too, then please be sure to order your favourites before the 3rd June...
OK, so that's my two for one deal for today!
I hope you've enjoyed today's makes and I'll be back soon with even more :-D
Thanks so much for stopping by today, I hope you enjoy your bank holiday weekend, whatever you're up to :-)

CAS Flowering Desert Notelet

Todays make is a super simple notelet, perfect for sending a quick message and I just love creating these cacti! Infinite possibilities :-)
I used Garden Green for the cactus and Lovely Lipstick for the flowers.
The stamps have this natural looking shading to them so it's really easy to get this look just by inking the stamp.
I love how adding a simple heat embossed sentiment on black card makes this feel super on trend and modern.
And that's todays make! I hope you enjoyed it and I'll be back tomorrow with another, 'till then, happy stamping :-)

"First Steps" Baby Card

Hello there,
I still have a million cards (exaggeration for the point and all that!) to share with you using products that are retiring in a few short days! So, I'm going to make this a super quick post so I can finally edit some pictures for more posts ;-)
This card was made for our friend who had a beautiful baby girl and I used the First Steps stamp set with the rectangle dies to make this...
 I heat embossed the sentiment in gold and the background paper is from the All My Love pack.
 This (retired) ribbon was just perfect for tis make and I have sooo much ribbon so I am on a bit of a mission to use it :-)
Dot on a few sequins and pearls and that's it, done!
So, that's all for me for today from me for today, I'll be back tomorrow with another make.
Hope you have a great day!

Bubble Over for an Inspire. Create Colour Challenge

Hello and welcome to this fortnights challenge with Inspire. Create and this week we have a really lovely colour challenge to share with you.
I decided to use this soon to be retiring set Bubble Over. I will be keeping this in my stash, for sure! Let's see the card...
I added Poppy Parade to the bottles with a sponge dauber after I'd already inked them with the Pumpkin Pie. I then die cut them and added them over some stamped bubbles, one flat and the other with dimensionals.
I added little toppers to the bottle fronts with dimensionals.
TIP 1: Roll the small punched images in the (same colour) ink pad so you don't have the white card core showing.
I added a sentiment stamped onto vellum which
TIP 2: I heat embossed with clear powder to ensure it wouldn't smudge.
Add a few enamel shapes and that's it done!
We'd love if you joined in with this colour challenge and for loads more inspo please do head over and see what the rest of the DT have made HERE
Thanks so much for looking today :-)
