cake and ...

Ferris wheels.  Now I am afraid of heights so I've never been on one but they are iconic of fun fairs and carnival so today's sample features the ferris wheel stamp. I have decorated the inside of today's card so that it actually looks like a second card front! The carousel Birthday stamps have a coordinating designer series paper stack and they are sooo lush i just had to show them off inside as well as on the front!

A roundabout....

One of my favourite rides at the fair ground as a child, and even now truth be told 😉, was the carousel so when I saw the Carousel Birthday stamp set in the spring summer catalogue I just knew it was for me ! So why you ask does this card not have a carousel on it I hear you say...well I always try to use all the stamps in a set so I set myself the challenge of using the tent stamp first, before I could play with the others!  So here it is I love the soft coral colours with the creamy very vanilla.
I hope you'll join us this week for more inspiration with this lovely set.

Designer Tin of Cards Kit and stamp set - Day 5

 Today's card is in Dapper Denim print. That colour and Night of Navy are deep dark blues and 
my favourites.


I added the Cajun Craze die-cut banner under the smaller of the gold edged rectangles which 
were raised on dimensionals. 

 Using 2 of the blue die-cuts, I placed them over the corners, again on dimensionals.

Adding the messages and some Rhinestones to finish. 

Thank you for joining me this week.
I hope you've found some interest and inspiration on this weeks projects?
Please pop by next week as Cary will be back to show some more of her amazing work.

Designer Tin of Cards Kit and Stamp set - Day 4

Today I have used the card base which has the card which has the 'Moroccan' designed card.
I took one of the mosaic pieces of card in the kit and cut
into 1 cm strips and laid them as you can see.

A rectangle was stuck onto Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper and using a small circle punch,
I punched off the corners.

I stamped the message with Emerald Envy Ink Pad and mounted it onto a scalloped circle also in
Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper.

A simple message to finish off the project.

Designer Tin of Cards - Day 3

Today I used the busiest of the 4 designs of the cards from the tin.
I wasn't too sure whether I liked it or not as it is totally different from the 
clean and simple card bases that I usually work on.
I've surprised myself!

I cut one of the vellum squares and a piece of Whisper White card in half diagonally. 
Trimmed it down to 1cm V just to edge the vellum. 
These were mounted onto the card with Dimensionals foam shapes.

Adding a few of the die cut balloons, small pieces of the Baker's Twine and a message from 
Designer Tin of Cards stamp set.

My son's friend has passed his driving test today and I thought this would be perfect for him. 
The message was punched out with a 2" Circle punch and the edges were rolled across 
the Emerald Envy Ink Pad to make them stand out.

Designer Tin of Cards Project Kit - Day 2

This is another card from the kit using some of the products again not as shown in the leaflet.
By adding different elements you can achieve an individual card every time.
 This time I have used the red and gold printed card from the kit. 
By adding some of the gold striped washi tape from the kit, I made a frame to surround 
the whisper white mat.

Adding the Night of Navy die cut flowers gives a lovely pop of contrast.

 I have also added a few strips of bakers twine from the kit.

Both the floral die cut and white mat are mounted using Dimensionals foam shapes. 

Just a few simple messages from the Designer Tin of Cards stamp set finish this one off.

Designer Tin of Cards

This week I am showing you a project kit which co-ordinates with the stamp set of the same name.
I use the stamp set frequently as it has a varied selection of
 messages that can be used on multiple projects.

The kit is only £24.50 and there are 16 cards, 4 each of 4 different designs.
 Envelopes, die cut  images and papers, mats, file tab dividers,
 vellum, washi tape, bakers twine and sequins and much more. 

 This is my first card made without copying any of those illustrated in the leaflet from the tin.







 This is an amazing kit and well worth the money.

Birthday Blooms and Greatest Greetings
 were the stamp sets used on today's card.

I made a square card this time and embossed it using Festive Embossing Folder.
It shows that it is versatile and that it doesn't have to be Christmas to use it.

I added some tape to the card and laid Bermuda Bay Baker's Twine across to give a little feature.
The image was coloured in using the Watercolour Pencils in Bermuda Bay and Daffodil Delight.

Another simple card to finish off the week. 
Thank you for popping by and I hope to improve my photos and find my camera very soon.

Hopeful Thoughts and Painter's Palette 
were the stamp sets used on today's project.

The message and flowers are from the lovely Hopeful Thoughts stamp set. 
I coloured the stamped images with Melon Mambo and Pear Pizazz using marker pens.

I stamped and cut out the centre of the frame from Painter's Palette.
Then mounted it onto the card using the new Foam Adhesives Strips. 

Melon Mambo, Basic Black and Whisper White cardstock were used for this project.

Here For You
Today, I used some of the amazing paper that is FREE when you spend £45 in the Stampin' Up catalogues.
It's called In Between The Lines and has some of the most lovely designs in. 

Any way, back to the card.

I used the new Watercolour Pencils in Calypso Coral, Bermuda Bay and Pacific Point
to add a little colour. 

The stamp set is Here For You. Lots of lovely phrases in the set.

Island Indigo, Whisper White and Calypso Coral cardstock were used on this.
