Card Making - Stampin' Up! Sweet little Bunny!

Sweet Little Something Stamp set from Stampin' Up! as soon as I saw it  I had to have it my daughter and Niece both have a thing for Jelly Cat Bunnies, My niece has lots like one in every colour they do! 

This is the Jelly Cat Bunny - so them here 
http://www.jellycat.com/bashful-beige-bunny-bas3b/
Isn't he just like him!!! Awwwww 

The stamp set is £19 for 10 photopolymer stamps, 

The bunny is stamped with 3 stamps, Now I find it easier to stamp them in reverse so 3 - 2 - 1, instead on 1, 2, 3 
I stamped stamp 3 in Soft Suede 1st generation, then Stamp 2 in Crumb Cake 2nd generation ink (stamped off) and stamp 3 also in Crumb Cake 2nd generation (stamped off), I've then hand cut him out and added him to my card on dimensional pads....

I'm thinking Baby Shower, New baby cards and not forgetting the Christmas cards I made with this bunny! Its also perfect for Invites and so much more....

To create the curved sentiment, I just carefully curved the stamp on to my clear block - the benefit of Photopolymer they bend well!


I've used the Bundle of Love Designer Series paper on my cards teamed up with matching
ribbon see below to order yours

2018 Kre8tors Blog Hop Sale-a-Bration


Welcome to the second instalment of our 2018 Kre8tors Blog hop this months theme is Sale-a-Bration

I'm Laura Mackie and I'm from Norfolk in the United Kingdom. Today our blog hop is all about the current Sale-a-Bration promotion and we are sharing Ideas and Inspiration using the Free products you can earn with a qualifying order of £45 or £90 order. Sale-a-Bration promotion runs from now until the 31st March

Would you believe it when I tell you everything I'm sharing today was made today! this morning in fact!... well it really was I had crafters block! I couldn't decide what Sale-a-Bration stamp set or what to use... We had a date night last night and yesterday we cut a whole in a wall for a door! the mess was unreal and there was no way I could sneak off to my happy place to craft! sigh! this morning I was up and straight in and thankfully this came to mind and fell in to place...



I've used the at a first glance NA!!! stamp set Hearftelt Blooms, this stamp set I disregarded straight away.. then after seeing some stunning makes I knew I 'needed' it! Monica Gale shared a gorgeous card last week colouring in the flowers with our Stampin' Blends and it was actually so quick so I had a go and loved how my card turned out - apart from my not so straight sentiment!!! hate it when that happens but that's my fault for leaving things so late


The flowers are coloured using the 3 dark shades only in Old Olive, Daffodil Delight and Rich Razzleberry, it really is so quick to achieve and doesn't it look like they take agessssss to colour!!

The little gift bag I made was super quick to create and is a really great size


The measurements for my gift bag are full A4 sheet of card stock

Score landscape at 2", 5.5", 7.5" and 11"
or 5cm, 14cm, 19cm and 28cm

then score portrait at 2" or 5cm

cut away as below and bone folder score lines

I've used Rich Razzleberry ink on to Rich Razzleberry cardstock, randomly
stamping and filling the page to create my gift bag


the lid / top measures 9cm x 12cm score in half at 6cm on long edge or
3.5" x 5" score in half at 2.5" on long edge


I added two little slits with my craft knife to insert my ribbon handle, I then adhered this to the back of my gift bag
I added a Velcro dot fastener inside the lid to hold the lid closed, 


 The sentiment is stamped and die cut with my oval framelits and stitched framelits



I do hope you've liked what I've shared with you today and I've inspired you to go get inky and creative don't forget to hop on over too the talented Tricia Butts

New Stamp N' Hop Blog Hop


Image may contain: text

Welcome to our first Stamp 'N Hop Blog of 2018, I have joined up with a bunch of super talented fellow Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from all over the world to share Ideas & Inspiration with you each month, this month for our first hop we're sharing with you cards and more made from products from the new Occasions (spring/Summer) Catalogue..
So sit back and relax and enjoy......

I'm sharing with you the new Bubble Over Stamp set and matching framelits, My first card is a Pop-Up Slider card
This card is great to post as it is flat until you pull the tag then it well 'pops'



You can see better from this view how the card works...


I've used a colour combo of Crushed Curry, Bermuda Bay, Lemon-Lime Twist and Smoky Slate

The Happy Birthday is stamped in Bermuda Bay and yes it is fussy cut by hand! worth it though don't you think?? the Bubble Over Stamp set is great value at £15.00, you can buy the Stamp set and Framelits in bundle for £36.00 saving you 10%


My next card is also using the Bubble Over Stamps but with the coordinating Designer Series Paper these papers are free when you place a £45 order of Stampin' Up! products, 


Here is another card, can you tell I love this set??? I've always struggled with mens cards, and as soon as I saw this set I knew I needed it! this time I've embossed the background with the sequin embossing folder, and added the 'Celebrate' die cut using the Celebrate You Thinlits dies, I cut 4 layers of the celebrate and adhered them together to give it real depth!



Here is a Memo board also made with the Bubbles and Fizz DSP and Bubble over Framelits... I have this sitting by my laptop.. Its so handy! I'm going to make some more for gifts...




I hope you've enjoyed what I have made for you today, and I've inspired you to go ink up those stamps!
