Crafty Creations 22nd July

We have Rachel Zmolik to thank for this weeks card. She made several cards using the new Shooting Star and Sliding Star Framelit Dies , then as happens with Pinterest  Gail discovered it and requested we make one. Always happy to oblige.

We changed it a bit, adding the sun from the Swirly Birds Stamp Set, a couple of birds, a greeting and an coloured tree.

We used some buttons behind each of the wheels so they were hidden well but still allowed the bike to move along the curve. Because they all used different inks the cards have a unique individual look. The two cards on the left have their card fronts mounted on green backgrounds – a happy mistake that turned out well when the stamping was started on the wrong piece of card stock!  My little birds on the top card are there to cover an extra dob of ink that crept into the wrong place! I love that about card making. Mistakes are easily rectified and sometimes add more to the card as does the sun on the top left hand card and the sponged background. It look great.

Thanks for stopping bye. More next Friday.

Baby Love

Babies can bring boundless joy and wakeful hours but when they arrive a month early and all there tiny baby bits are perfect it’s certainly time for extra love.

So it was with great joy after an anxious 24 hrs that I created this card for a friend. I was so happy with it I made two more!!

On Whisper White Card stock I used Smokey Slate for the Banner and greeting with the Thoughtful Banners Stamp and Punch.

Again on Whisper White CS for the ground I chose Smokey Slate using the stamp from the Sheltering Tree . . The flowers were  from the same stamp set in Melon Mambo with stems  in Memento Tuxedo Black.

I again used Melon Mambo for the hearts from The Perpetual Birthday Calendar Stamps and highlighted the largest one with Itty Bitty Epoxy stickers – retired now.

After that it was just a case of stamping the prams from Something for Baby in Blushing Bride, Flirty Flaming and Watermelon Wonder, two of the new In Colours. The matching Baby’s First Framelits die made cutting out easy. Then I popped up the Banner and pram with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Next I stamped the inside, see next blog.
