I made this pretty birthday card live on Facebook on Thursday. It’s so fun to do and uses every stamp in the Happiest of days stamp set!
The sentiments and images would lend themselves not only to birthdays but to lots of other celebrations too such as Wedding, Engagement and Bridal Showers.
The first picture shows the front of the card.
I kept the look soft with Sahara sand and coloured the images in using Watercolor pencils, no need to worry about staying in lines! The imagery is perfect for a more informal look and our blender pens work beautifully with the pencils for that. If you want to used aqua painters to change the card for shimmer, glossy or watercolour paper.

I shared the measurements for this fancy fold on a previous post which you can see here

I’ll be demonstrating a brand new project on Facebook Live, Thursday 1 February 8pm. You can find me here:
I’ve made no secret of the fact that I am SO ready for Spring! Weather in the UK was particularly yuk yesterday and I want more light, more sun and less cold!
While I’m waiting I created my own but of Spring with ink, stamps and paper (and a few other bits and bobs)
The Picnic with You stamp set is so cute – it even has it’s own teeny weeny salt and pepper shakers 🙂
Obviously it has lots of picnic images but today I decided to focus on the flower basket element. I would highly recommend the bundle so that you get the dies to cut out all those cute shapes. The basket also has an embossing die which gives a great texture to your project. The magnetic platform will really help when lining up the dies with your stamped images.
I embossed the card base with the Simple Stripes embossing folder it makes me think of pretty flowers against a white picket fence.
I embossed the envelope flap too.
and we mustn’t neglect the inside!
Some of the flowers were raised up with dimensionals, as was the basket.

The Let the good times roll Bundle was love at first sight for me! My family adore theme parks and roller coasters and although I’m usually the one waiting with the bags (I’m not very brave!) theme parks hold great memories for me.

The wait is nearly over to get your hands on it, the NEW Spring/Summer catalogue launches on the 3rd of January. I can’t show you the inside of the catty yet but you could have your hands on one very soon!
I’ll start with a little confession. I used A LOT of supplies on this project!
When you make your Mum a card you want to make sure it’s special and I got carried away with sparkle and pretty things. Usually I like to demonstrate how much you can do with very little Stampin’ Up! supplies (because it’s true) but we all get a little carried away at times 🙂
The main focus of the card is the beautiful dragonfly. Island Indigo and Tranquil Tide remind me of the jewel like colours that dragonflies have so they were the perfect choice.
