It’s often funny how we can fall in love with a stamp set.
The only reason I purchased this set was because we had decided to use it as our featured stamp set in the March Technique Treats that will feature Chalkboard Techniques.
I would have to admit it wasn’t a “must have” in the catalogue.
And Laugh out Loud I have used it consistently for the last 4 weeks. and to day’s card is just another example.
I have been making cards for this little miss since she was born for a friend and what did she say when her Nan asked her what she wanted for her birthday? Just my card Nanny, just my card.
She has a toy Carousel and lives near the Wheel of Brisbane and loves Cup Cakes. So I think I hit all the bases. Nan tells me that the big grin and Whee!! was testimony enough.
I stamped the wheel on the Cupcake and Carousel DSP. I stamped the cup cakes, the basket and cloud from the Lift me Up Stamp Set, on Whisper White and coloured them in with the Watercolor Pencils. Then used the Up and Away Thinlit die to cut them out. The clouds were from the same thinlits. Love how these two compliment one another.
Sentiments inside were stamped in Tuxedo Black as was the horse. I used the Oval Stitched framelits Die after I had coloured the horse and then just gently coloured the edges.
The birthday sentiment was stamped in Blushing Bride.
That’s it for today.

I had finished unpacking my order and playing with the Watercolor Pencils and the Hey Chick stamp on a card and had used the Perfect Mix egg crate on the inside of the card when I thought “While you have all that gear out just make another card!”
Bad decision, not thought through, because I chose the Mixer image for the front of the card and teamed it with the Measurement spoons inside. That’s fine but in my haste I didn’t look closely at the Mixer and busily coloured away thinking” That’s an unusual mixer, it has a place for a logo or something on the side!” and promptly coloured it in.
I could be forgiven if I didn’t cook, for the mistake, or had never seen a mixer!
It took me 3 days before, glancing at the card, I realised it’s a handle and had to make another front. Thank goodness I didn’t take it to class. That would have been a right old giggle!!
So here’s the (fixed ), not so quick, card.
May your beaters always turn, and your colours blend perfectly!
Do you remember these? They were launched a while ago and met with so much success that Stampin’ Up! were unable to meet demands.
Good news is they are back in supply as of Monday 16th January.
Just to demonstrate how quick an effective these little frames can be I have added a card I created with them.
I used the Watercolour Pencils to scribble over some embossed Card Stock. Then coloured with a just damp Aqua Painters then cut the squares, making frames. Simple!
