Sending Birthday Wishes

I made slimline birthday this week using the Pizzeria Parlor stamp sets designed by 7KidsCrafts!!! These are adorable stamp sets, that coordinate with the other 7KidsCraft designs.


I stamped the images using the 7KidsCrafts Pizzeria Kids stamp set and colored them in with my prismacolor pencils. I added some white gel pen detailing and fussy cut them out.

I used a Slim Card Basics die from Mama Elephant to cut out the scalloped and window panel. The blue cardstock is from Photoplay's Tulla & Norbert's Excellent Adventure paper pack.

I stamped the sentiment from the 7KidsCrafts Pizzeria Kids stamp set, directly onto the white cardstock window panel.

I finished off the card with some of Doodlebug's Land the I love star sprinkles.

You make me so Happy

I am in love with slimline cards! I think they are so different and fun! For this card I played with Paperie Ink's Panda Expressions stamp set! They are just too cute, and need very little coloring!


I stamped the images and added some grey and pink highlights, black gel pen eyes and glossy accents to their noses. I then fussy cut them out.

I cut out a green patterned paper panel measuring 8.75" x 3.75" from Doodlebug's At the Zoo paper collection and added this to a white card base measuring 9"x4".

I used Whimsy Stamps Slimline Five Frames die to cut out the white cardstock back panel, and offset the frames inside.

I popped up the different panda's on foam dots and placed them around the card.

The sentiment strip came from my stash - Simon Says Stamp.

I love how this card turned out!

The 7KidsCrafts store have so many Paperie Ink and Whimsy Stamps goodies to choose from - you should go check them all out!

Cute Card Thursday - Bright Colors

Our theme at Cute Card Thursday this week is 'Bright Colors'. 
As always, we welcome your own interpretation. 

I used the adorable Penguin Beach digital image by Crissy Armstrong for Whimsy Stamps for my card. 



I printed out the image and colored him in with my prismacolor pencils. I then fussy cut him out.

I used the Whimsy Stamps giraffe paper pack for the patterned papers, creating a fun wave and sand effect. 
I used the Whimsy Stamps cloud die and pierced and stitched circle die also.

The sentiment was stamped using the Whimsy Stamps Penguin Life's a beach clear stamp set. I used the Whimsy Stamps Quick Strips dies to cut it out into a banner.

This was all adhered onto a standard A2 white card base.

We are sponsored this week by All Dressed Up Stamps, a great prize as always! 

Hope you can join us!

Hanging with my Gnomies - Ombre

I made another card for the Summer School on the MFT blog this week, and created a card for the Ombre challenge.

Ombre:
Ombré is a time-tested technique that still somehow manages to feel both modern and innovative. There are a number of ways to add an ombré effect to your cards — from simple die-cut shapes and sentiments to full panels. Opt for a clean and simple single hue or fade from one tone into another for more dramatic appeal.


I used background papers to create the ombre effect.


I stamped the images from the Hanging with my Gnomies stamp set and colored them in with my prismacolor pencils. I added some white gel pen detailing and then fussy cut them out. 

I used the Horizontal Snow Drifts cover up die to cut out the white cardstock background and also the inlay pieces from the different patterned papers. I chose papers that gradually went from dark to light in the green and blue color families. I adhered the white background to a standard A2 white card base and then inlaid the colored paper pieces. 

I stamped the sentiment from the same Hanging with my Gnomies stamp set and die cut it into a banner. I adhered this to the panel, along with the images.

I finished off my card by adding some heart sprinkles from my stash.

The 7KidsCrafts store have so many cute My Favorite Things goodies to choose from - you should go check them all out!

MFT Summer School - Rainbow

I made another card for the Summer School on the MFT blog this week, and created a card for the Rainbow challenge.

Rainbow:

When choosing a color scheme, particularly for a bright & happy occasion, you simply cannot go wrong with a rainbow. There is something so comforting and cheer-inducing about that ROYGBIV arrangement — whether you opt for traditionally vivid hues or tone things down with pastels, a rainbow is never a bad choice.

I used one of my favorite Cover Up dies - Bold Stripes - to create the rainbow effect on my card. 



I used the MFT Pinstripes 6x6 paper pad for the rainbow colors - I love how this looks!

I stamped the Pure Innocence 'Something Special Just for You' image and sentiment. I colored the image in with rainbow colors using my prismacolor pencils and added some white gel pen detailing. I fussy cut her out. I cut out the sentiment into a banner shape.

This was all adhered onto a standard A2 white card base.

Thanks for looking.

MFT Summer School - Symmetry

I made another card for the Summer School on the MFT blog this week, and created a card for the Symmetry challenge.

Symmetry:

Symmetry refers to positioning your elements mirrored across an imaginary line that divides your project into even segments. It’s a great method for achieving balance in your design and is a reliable means of laying out your card elements when you don’t have a lot of planning time to spare.

I looked through all of my MFT goodies for dies that were symmetrical and came up with one of my favorite themes - coffee!


I used papers from my stash and the Cafe all Day die-namic to cut out the coffee cup. I added some white gel pen detailing and a heart to finish it off.

I used the Gift Tag die-namic to cut out the cream tag and added some twine from my stash.

I stamped the sentiment from the LLD Perk Up stamp set and used a banner die to cut it out. I also used a scalloped edge die to add a pop of red to the card.

I added all of these elements to a piece of embossed Kraft cardstock and the adhered it all to a standard A2 chocolate colored card base.

Thanks for looking.

International Cat Day - Black Cat Halloween card

Today is International Cat Day, so we are celebrating all things cats on the 7KidsCrafts store by creating cat themed cards.

I decided to make a Halloween card for this using the new Halloween Market 6x6 paper pad by Carta Bella. I love the soft muted colors in these papers and thought it made the perfect black cat card!


I was gifted the cat die and have no idea of the brand name - sorry.

I used the patterned papers from the collection along with a card map sketch for inspiration.

I stamped the sentiment directly onto the patterned paper using Photoplay Paper's Gnome for the Holidays - Halloween stamp set. I then heat embossed it with clear embossing powder to make it stand out.

I adhered it all to a standard A2 black card base and finished it off with some black enamel dots from my stash.

Why don't you join in with International Cat Day and add a card to the 7KidsCrafts Facebook page. Can't wait to see what you create.

Thanks for looking.
