Jungle Joy

Here is my second Jungle Pals Sale-a-Bration card. Again, I took inspiration from the cards in the Sale-a-Bration Brochure on pages 12-13.

The Pool Party background and the Parakeet Party grass have been cut from the Delightful Floral DSP. The sentiment is from the Heartfelt Hexagon stamp set. Buy the bundle and get the co-ordinating punch!

Happy Jungle Pals

This week I'll be sharing 3 cards that I made using the Jungle Pals Sale-a-Bration stamp set and co-ordinating Dies. I had lots of fun playing with these cute critters! I took inspiration from the cards in the Sale-a-Bration Brochure on pages 12-13, but put my own spin on them.

You may be wondering why I listed the Delightful Floral DSP in my Product List down below. I used the watercolour wash pages for the Pool Party sky background and also to cut out the Pretty Peacock and Parakeet Party Leaves. It's a good trick when you want a softer look than just straight cardstock.

Most Adored Card Set

Here is my set of cards, all made using the Most Adored  FREE Sale-a-Bration DSP, along with the Throughout the Year stamp set. I also used the Bee Builder Punch, using the bee wings as hearts. 

Hearts work for lots of occasions - I made a Valentine's Day card, a Thank you card and a Birthday Card. You can see everything I used listed below. Have a lovely day!

Most Adored Birthday

Here's my third Most Adored Design - this time a Birthday card, using the pink and red patterns in the pack. I punched some Bee Builder hearts again, and arranged them around my greeting. I made the sentiment a bit more special by using markers to ink it up - in Flirty Flamingo and Real Red. The Throughout the Year stamp set has some very useful sentiment stamps, covering lots of occasions 'throughout the year'!

The finishing touches are a twine bow and a few Iridescent Foil Gems for a touch of sparkle.

February Blog Hop

Happy Valentine's Day, and welcome to another Stampers Anonymous Team Blog Hop! This month we have a tic-tac-toe Challenge. We had to choose 3 items in a row to incorporate into our card. I went in a diagonal and chose Designer Series Paper, Dies and/or Punches and Ribbon or Twine, for my card. I use these 3 things on pretty much every card I make, so it was an easy choice!

It's going to be fun to see what everyone else chose. You can make the complete circuit and see all the gorgeous creations by following the links at the end of each post.

Here is my card:

I decided to continue playing with the Most Adored Designer Series Paper, in honour of Valentines Day today. That took care of the "DSP" part of the challenge (and it's a FREE Sale-a-Bration item!). The "punches" are the hearts that I punched using the Bee Builder Punch. The large heart is actually bee wings! The "twine" is White twine from the Baker's Twine Essentials pack. 

The sentiment is from the Throughout the Year stamp set, stamped on a strip of Flirty Flamingo cardstock. I lightened the tone of the cardstock first by swiping it with White Craft ink and then wiping it dry with a tissue (if you look closely, you can see that it is lighter than the border piece, which is it's regular colour). This meant that it matched the lighter pink shade in the DSP, and my sentiment stood out a bit more. In other colouring tricks, I tinted my Adhesive-backed Hearts & Flowers using Real Red and Flirty Flamingo Blends.

Most Adored Hearts

I'm showcasing the Most Adored Designer Series Paper this week - one of the fabulous and FREE Sale-a-Bration offerings. This card was inspired by one on page 9 of the Sale-a-Bration brochure. I didn't have the heart dies, so I grabbed my Bee Builder Punch and decided that the bee wings would make cute hearts.

This paper has lovely gold foil designs on one side, and pink and red prints on the other. I've made use of both on this card. This design would work with just about any paper you have in your stash.
