Free As A Bird cards

I saw this card all over Facebook but lots of fellow demo's this was one of the make and take card from Onstage at Telford in April. So I thought I would have a go at making mine is slightly different.

I took a base card A6 in Pool Party then a piece of  dsp 5 3/8 x 3 7/8  then Whisper White 3 7/8 x 2 3/4 to stamp my bird onto I then coloured then with my blend pens light then dark to add the shading effect. I took a scrap piece of Old Olive to stamp my sentiment. I then adhere this all to my base card using tear tape.

Card 2

A very quick card to make all you need is an A6 base card in Old Olive then a piece of dsp 5 5/8 x 3 7/8 I took a scrap of Whisper White to stamp my sentiment and die cut it using the small nested die and then cut a second  in Old Olive cut it in half and added it to each end using tear tape I then placed dimensionals on the back and adhere it to the card.

Butterfly Wishes cards

 For my first card I have taken a base card A6 In Flirty Flamingo I have then got a Whisper White Mat 5 3/3 x 3 7/8 and I have used daubers to sponge the centre flower stamp as I wanted it to have a Crumb Cake steam then Old Olive leaves and pretty Flirty Flamingo flowers I then thought I would stamp the sentiment in the Flirty Flamingo and also add some cute little butterflys around the card to break up the white.

Card 2

The same as card one the only difference is I changed the sentiment and took the butterflys away and added a piece of ribbon though I got my dauber and sponged it with my Flirty Flamingo ink and adhere it to the left side using tear tape.

Card 3

Same as card one and two but the difference this time is change of sentiment again  ribbon again but left white and I stamped a butterfly and punched it out and added rhinestones to the body.

Butterfly Wishes cards

To make this card you will need a thick whisper white card A6 in size and a piece of Basic Black 5 5/8 x 3 7/8 and to make the apertures to make the apertures you need to use the 3 rd stitched nested die to make these  you then need to tape this to the card using tear tape to the Whisper White card then using lovely Lipstick stamp your butterfly's. Then with a scrap of whisper white stamp your sentiment and then die cut using the 2nd die and use dimensional's to make this raised from the card.

For my second card I have changed my A6 base card to lovely Lipstick and taken a piece of retired dps same measurements as above and used tear tape to adhere to my card.. Then I took a piece of Whisper White and stamped my butterfly's then die cut them out using the 3rd die and then cut the 4th die in lovely lipstick to mat them onto I used dimensional's to make them look raised.

A very quick and easy card to make I took a base card A6 and a piece of Whisper White 5 5/8 x 5 5/8

I used my stamparatus to get my Butterfly's evenly placed down the side of my card and then I placed my sentiments between the 1st and 2nd butterfly.

I just love the font in this stamp set and yes I love Butterflys.

When I first saw the Family Party stamp set I knew I had to have it and I think I will be getting a lot of use out of it.

The font is lovely and you can make lots of family birthday cards you can even make cards for the special mile stone birthdays everything you need is in the set.

I have used a A6 base card with a piece of retired dsp and then my whisper white which I have stamped onto and then put the card together.

I used my Stamparatus so I could get everything on and stamp in one go the little parcles took a bit longer as I had to stamp each one then stamp the second stamp which placed the bow and dots on.

Quick and easy card I took a Blackberry Bliss A6 card and then a piecr of very vanilla card for a change as I always use Whisper White normally I stamped my bird image and then took the largest stitched nested lable die as you can see the birds fit in here just nicely.

I then stamped Thank You as my sentiment and then a bit of tear tape to adhere to the card I decided not to colour this time and I think it's just as nice.

Tropical Chic Your The Greatest card

This card is made using the wreath Technique and you will need to make a template I made mine after watching  lady called Jane Allmark on You Tube.

I made a base card in Seaside Spray this is 6 x 6 I then took a piece of the Pretty Peacock Gingham found in the colour 6 x 6 paper stack paperI trimmed this to 5 5/8 x 5 5/8 to leave a little border. My whisper white piece to stamp on is 5 x 5 and I did 2 of these one for the front and one for the inside of my card.

You then need to use the template to stamp your pattern onto the Whisper White once done you can then put your card together, I think these two colours go really well together.

Rooted In Nature Cards

I know the Natures Poem dsp is retired but a lot of you will still have some.

I took an A6 Blackberry Bliss base card matted the dsp this is slightly smaller to allow a Blackberry Bliss edge all the way round. I then took a scrap piece of whisper white and stamped my sentiments. I used the square collection Framelit dies for one card and the stitched rectangle dies for the second here again I matted onto Blackberry Bliss to make the card pop.

Wonderful Romances

Not my type of stamp set and theses are the only cards I have made using it. I am how ever pleased with how it has turned out.

I stamped my imagine and then use the blends to colour I like the colours I used Granny Apple Green and Lovely Lipstick I think these two colours go really well together.

Just a changed of dsp and for the colouring this time I used the water colour pencils the colours look a little lighter here so not so vibrant.
