My three cards are all the same this week, but show how different they can look in different colour ways.

The first card uses Night of Navy for its main colour, and the stamp set used is Tasteful Textures. The die cut leaves are from varies die sets and are cut in the lovely new Brushed Metallic papers

The second has a Petal Pink base, Petal Pink flower and Gray Granite stamping. This time the dies cuts are in Silver foil paper

Finally, the third card base is Early Espresso, with Old Olive die cut pieces and a Daffodil Delight flower coloured with Stampin Blends.

BLOG HOP WEEK 3… Playful Pets

I don’t think anyone would describe me as a cat or dog person. Although we have had both as pets over the many years we have been married.

Playful Pets DSP;

Product List
Playful Pets Designer Series Paper

I got this Designer series paper (DSP) left over from a paper share, so though this a great opportunity to see what I can do with it.

I have made 3 projects this week, all with very little stamping, so making the DSP work do all the work for me.

The first card was cat themed and I used one cat from the DSP as my focal point and then adhered it to some fancy labels from the Tasteful labels die set

And then I played with the dogs…..

A LOT of fussy cutting here, but a cute card for the dog lovers out there!!

And finally I made a really useful, decent sized box! It is 4” square and I thought the colour scheme leant itself to being festive, so I added a Christmas tag to the front

Blog Hop week 2; Playing with Patterns

Did you check out the other blogs last week? Well, we are doing this for the whole of October so check in every week for more. Its fab to see other peoples ideas, even with the same papers it can look so different. We hope it gives you some inspiration to use or buy papers….I know for sure I’m a bit of a hoarder!

This week I’ve used Pattern Play DSP for the two card I’ve made specifically for this blog hop. They use a fabulous range of bright and cheerful colours, great for both Male and Female cards.

Product List
Playing With Patterns 6" X 6" (15.2 X 15.2 Cm) Designer Series Paper

The first card I made uses Night of Navy for all the mat layers, Stitched Triangle Dies, Night of Navy (from the co ordinating ribbon set) and Daffodil Delight Ribbon and the sentiment is from Happiest of Birthdays stamp set. Not sure the stitching shows up too well in the triangles on her, but I think it adds some lovely interest.

The second card uses Calypso Coral as the mat layer and all the paper is the oddments from previous cards made. The sentiment is also from Happiest of Birthdays stamp set and stamped in Coastal Cabana ink.

Blog hop with offer DSP

Did you know that selected DSP is on offer this month?

To help promote, I am joining in a blog hop. Don’t know what a blog hop is? Well just follow the links at the bottom of this page, which will ‘hop’ you to other peoples blog, where you can look at other peoples ideas…easy!

We are doing this every Tuesday, so have a peep each week for ideas using these offer papers.

This week I’m using the Artistry Blooms papers to make 2 cards.

Card number 1

First cut your DSP to 14.4cmx 10cm

Then I used the Playful Alphabet dies to cut the words ‘For You’ in the top left corner

Dont forget to glue the centres of the ‘O’s and ‘R’!

And that was my first card…so simple and can be used for lots of different things!

But hey…I’d got the die cut words still, so…….

Card number 2

As before , I cut a piece of DSP 10 x 14.4 cm

I cut 3 strips of DSP that matched the die cut letters that were about 10cm x 1cm and cut diagonally across all the ends (one in the opposite direction to the others).

I die cut and embossed a label from the ‘Tasteful Labels@ die set and stamped ‘Happy Birthday’ from the ‘Many Mates’ stamp set in Night of Navy ink. Have a look in the picture below…it shows the embossing off much better!

I glued the letters, and paper strips to the DSP and used dimensionals to raise the sentiment off the card. I then assembled the card and ‘voila’.

Products used for these cards were;
