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

Whale Done Birthday

Can anyone else believe we are already in July and the children will be breaking up for the summer soon? Due to Covid, I still have a stack of Children’s cards that I have made for my grandchildren’s friends. It makes me so sad that all the little ones are missing on all those memories of having birthday parties, outings and all the other things that I remember now with joy. This card will be added to my stack as hopefully we are beginning to come to the end of these difficult times and the children will be able to get out and make some wonderful memories.

Card Base – Bermuda Base Cardstock 8 1/4″ x 5 7/8″ scored and folded @ 4 1/8″
1st layer – Basic White Cardstock 5 5/8″ x 3 7/8″
Sentiment – Basic White Cardstock 2 1/4″ x 1 1/2″
Bermuda Bay Cardstock 2 1/4″ x 1 1/2″
Inside layer – Basic White Cardstock 5 5/8″ x 3 7/8″

I don’t use Bermuda Bay nearly enough. My son pulled it out form me for a colour challenge last week and I thought it suited this card and with the Bumble bee fish, I think it makes a fun, bright card.

If you don’t want to stamp your own backgrounds, don’t forget the Designer Series Paper Sale. We have some beautiful papers available.

Until next time, happy crafting
