Hello Fabulous - Hats Off to You!


Today I have a more feminine hat to share with you. By simply switching up colours and patterns you can drastically change a card. 

Here we have used the paper piecing technique. You simply stamp the image onto your DSP (in this instance Expressions in Ink) and cut around it to fit the image. In this case we just cut out the cap leaving the brim bight pink.  A fun floral embossing folder also makes the card more feminine as does the sentiment.

A Micky Mouse hat!



How about a Micky Mouse card using the Hats Off dies!? How cute is this? By simply adding two black circles to the black die cut hat you have your very own Micky Mouse ears. And its so simple to make.     

I have kept the base layers clean using basic black, real red and a piece of Pattern Party dsp. I also used a retired heart punch for the red glimmer heart. You can so easily change up the sentiment for a sweet card for all ages!

Stampers Anonymous Team Blog Hop #35

 


Hello friends and thanks for stopping by for our monthly team blog hop. 

This month we have a colour challenge as above. When I first saw these colours I thought of nature, blue sky, green grass and orangey brown leaves so I pulled out the  Love of Leaves stamp set and got creating.


By using the large images from the stamp set my card came together quite quickly. 
After stamping the white layer I ran it through the Tasteful Textile embossing folder to give it more depth. 

I then stamped and die cut the largest leaf and added it under the sentiment. I love these dies and how you can add the stitched effect to the leaves. So pretty.

The sentiment is sweet too, and just how I feel about my Stampin' Up! family x 

Make sure you continue on the blog hop and head over to Sharon's blog.

Here's to the next Adventure


It has taken me a while to use this Hat's Off bundle but oh what fun I have been having! This one was inspired by Jennifer Cotton  These hats are a great size and I love how you can personalise them for the recipient with colours, and the front motifs. 

Here I have paired the hat with the Mountain Air stamp set, using all the blue hues for a outdoor loving person. 

I stamped the mountain in Balmy Blue then the row of trees in Night of Navy. I then stamped the hat image using night of navy ink on balmy blue cardstock to get a stitched denim look. Using the dies was super easy to cut out the cap and also add the stitched elements. I then added the mountains logo to the front.

You are Out of this World!


I forgot to share this last card e made with the Stellar Birthday set in class. This time we focused on the cute little rocket ship, following a sample I saw on Pinterest.

To create the earth we used a piece of gray granite cardstock and die cut the rounded stitched edge using the basic borders dies. We then stamped the moon stamp from the To the Moon stamp set randomly in the same ink. 

The sentiment was stamped in the corner. Now you might note that this is where I made a little mistake and my sentiment wasn't straight so I re stamped the sentiment on a scrap piece of cardstock and adhered it over the top. Phew!

The rocket ship was  coloured with blends, cut with paper snips and adhered to the card with dimensionals to make it pop. We flicked wink of stella over the card to create the milky way and added some bling for stars. The moon was a circle die cut using the ombre specialty paper - a nice glittery cardstock, perfect for the starry sky.
