Turtle Friends Birthday Card

This bundle was a must have for me from the new catalogue, I just love it. Unfortunately, I was obviously not concentrating when I did my order and forgot to order the bundle. So I will have to order the punch separately and lose out on the 10% discount. So don’t be a ninny like me and check you enter the right code or click the link below to avoid that problem 😆

Turtle Friends Bundle – Annual Catalogue Page 56

Base Card – Granny Apple Green Cardstock 8 1/4″ x 5 7/8″ scored and folded @ 4 1/8″
1st layer – Mossy Meadow Cardstock 5 5/8″ x 3 7/8″
2nd layer – Basic White Cardstock 5″ x 2 1/2″
Scrap Basic White Cardstock for the turtles
Ribbon – 6 1/2″

For the background I blended Balmy blue for the sky and Pear Pizazz for the grass.

The turtles were stamped in Memento black ink, coloured with Stampin’ Blends and then I stamped the shells.

The ribbon was the white faux linen ribbon from the Flowers for Every Season combo pack, which I coloured with my dark Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blend and let dry for a few minutes.

As I think I have previously mentioned, we have a new mini catalogue coming soon and with it a second chance at Sale-a-bration this year which is exciting. Even more exciting is a new joining offer, so watch out for details of how to join my team and take advantage of that offer soon 😃

Until next time, happy crafting

A Good Man

It was my husband’s birthday on Wednesday and this was the card I made for him. This set has been around for a while, but this is the first time that I have used it. I also decided to play with one of our decorative masks. For his birthday he had a basic computer which we are upgrading slowly, and I am typing my blog on it and I like it so much better than my laptop. I’ve missed having a proper computer in the house. Shandy has now decided he wants to do the same for his birthday next month, which works for me as that will be one less person to fight for it 😆

Base Card – Misty Moonlight Cardstock 8 1/4″ x 5 7/8″ scored and folded @ 4 1/8″
1st Layer – Basic White Cardstock 5 3/4″ x 4″
Misty Moonlight Cardstock – 3 1/2″ x 2 3/4″
Basic White Cardstock – 3 3/8″ x 2 5/8″

I secured the mask over the cardstock and started by adding the Balmy blue ink over the entire piece of card.

I then covered the bottom end of the card with Misty Moonlight.

The images were coloured using Stampin’ Blends.

We have some new masks in this annual catalogue which I am going to have to purchase soon. They are another great way of making an interesting background.

I have just received my copy of the August- December mini catalogue and the Sale-a-bration catalogue, so I will be bringing you some holiday projects and showing some of the great freebies you can get soon.

Don’t forget the Designer Paper Series Paper sale.

Until next time, happy crafting

Free as a Bird Blended Background

Free as a Bird Colour blended

I’ve got the brayer and inks again, this time to make a background for the trees. Free as a bird seemed like the best fit for this card out of the sets I have, but I think the new set Birds and Branches would work really well.
