It's A Boy Sweet L'il Things Congratulations Card

by Joanne James10. August 2015 08:00

Happy Monday everyone! I am starting my week with a fun birth congratulations card for the challenges over at Freshly Made Sketches and Pals Paper Arts this week:

   Ppa262

I love the sketch but was initially perplexed when I saw the PPA colours this week as I wasn't sure I could make the Mint Macaron and Pool Party work together; I loved the colour combo though so thought I'd give it a bit more consideration and this is what I came up with:

With both Pool Party and Tip Top Taupe featuring in the Sweet L'il Things Designer Series paper pack, I decided to go with a new baby card - a boy of course! I just love the cloud pattern on the DSP sheet (it comes in the alternate colourway of Pool Party cloud outlines on Very Vanilla too) and whilst this is by no means only of use for a baby card, it provided the perfect backdrop for my little panel of 'zzzzz's' and my Very Vanilla panel with cute Pool Party babygro cut using my Baby's First Framelits. I paper-pierced the babygro to add interest and added a 3/4" Very Vanilla circle with a Mint Macaron punched heart, that I covered with one of the heart-shaped Itty Bitty Accents Epoxy Stickers - this looks so lovely in real life! The heart and banner were just enough Mint Macaron I think with the other two colours and I'm so pleased with my final card. It also made me realise just how much I love Tip Top Taupe - this isn't a colour I've used much at all to date, yet its soft tones work so well with pastels and paler colours, I must try and use it more often.

That's all from me; I am expecting a visit from my parents today, which is making Ben very excited since with his birthday tomorrow he is virtually assured of presents! - and I'm also expecting the arrival of my pre-order of SU! goodies from the new seasonal catalogue. I am beyond excited!!!

Back tomorrow with another project; until then, happy stampin'!

Be The Star You Are Card

by Joanne James24. July 2014 08:00

Today I'm sharing a card I made for this week's challenge over at CAS(E) This Sketch:

The minute I saw this sketch, I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it - I love it when that happens! I definitely had stars in my eyes with this one - have a look at my card and you'll see what I mean:

I decided to use one of my favourite products from the new annual catalogue, the star framelits, along with some of the images from the co-ordinating 'Be The Star' stamp set for this card. I simply stamped one of the stars in Pumpkin Pie onto Whisper White, then cut it out with the framelit of the same size. Using the framelit the next size up, I cut out another star from Crushed Curry cardstock and paper pierced this around the edge using my Eclectic piercing template. I finished the star with the 'be the star you are' sentiment stamped in Bermuda Bay and punched out with a 1" circle punch. Lastly, I used the small bundle of stars stamp in Coastal Cabana directly onto the base layer of cardstock.

All being well I'll be spending a family day at the beach today - buckets and spades at the ready! Hope you have a fun day however you choose to spend it.

Back tomorrow with another project; until then, happy stampin'!
