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.

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.

Turtle Card

I’m really upset that this suite is retiring too soon and wish I had bought it earlier, so I could have brought you more projects with it. For this card I didn’t want add too much or it would detract from the lovely paper and unfortunately the photo doesn’t show you the turtles and sequins in their sparkly glory šŸ˜€

Stamp the turtles and fussy cut them.

Blend the ink using Wink of Stella.

Tip 1: As these are photopolymer stamps you should use a mat under your cardstock to get a clear impression

Tip 2: Put a little liquid glue onto your silicone mat and pick up the sequins with the putty part of the Take Your Pick Tool to dip them in the glue.

We also have available for a limited time The Bouquet of Hope Paper Pumpkin kit

These products are available whilst stocks last, but if you miss out, fear not we have some great new products coming when the new catalogue goes live on the 4th May. Check out my shop for all the retiring offers.
