Panda Valentine's Day Cards using Mama Elephant – Pandamonium

Good Evening!

  Today's post are a few cards I have made using a stamps set and matching dies featuring Pandas. This is an American set available to buy from Sprinkle Twinkle, my local friendly craft store. The set is Pandamonium by Mama Elephant :)
I made a pink version and a brown version of the 3 designs - perfect for Valentine's Day!


These Pandas are so cute and I used a simple spotty background to make the black and white Pandas stand out. Finished with a banner greeting and these are ready to go!

Thanks for looking,

Sneak Peak Valentine's Day Monster Hugs Card

Good Afternoon Everyone!

As you know my little girl is my world. She has had a nasty cold this week - which is why I am so late with the post. We have had lots of mummy cuddles which is the best medicine :)

Here is a sneak peak of the Valentine's card range I am working on for this year. I also have a blue version which I will get photos of soon. 


These Monsters are very cute and the are hugging a small packet of Love Heart sweets. Perfect for Valentine's Day!

Thanks for looking,

Little Claire's Digi-Stamp Challenge - Two Owls

Good Morning to you All!

Today I bring you a card I made for the Little Claire's Blog Digi-Stamp Challenge. I have used the Digi-Stamp Two Owls. I resized the stamp to a slightly bigger size in Photoshop and printed out the design twice with some extra leaves, to create layers for the card.



Here is a list of materials and products I used for this card:

Computer Font - Bradley Hand ITC
White A4 Card Stock - for base
Leaf Design Papers - Stampin' Up!
Pink & Red Card Stock
Pro Markers - Walnut, Mango, Baby Pink, Forest Green, Meadow Green, Cinnamon & Tan
Die - Lawn Fawn Large Stitched Rectangle Stackables
Flower Punch - Stampin' Up!
Glue, Foam Pads, Bone Folder, Pink Twine, Pearls and Pink Button

How I made my card:

1/. Print out the Digi-Stamp onto smooth white card and colour in using promarkers.
2/. Cut out the owl image into a rectangle to fit the die cut frame. Cut out the other owls and leaves to layer up onto the main design. Cut out the rectangle frames in pink.
3/. Fold the white card in half and the one of the halves in half again to create an easel card. 
4/. Glue to the base the patterened papers. Using foam pads attached the small rectangle and the layered up design with the frame. 
5/. Punch out the flowers in red and curl using the bone folder. Glue onto card and added pearls to the centres, on the last flower add a twine bow and button to the centre for cute detail!

Tigger Birthday Card

Hello & Welcome!

Today I have a card I made for my Sister's Birthday. She is a HUGE Tigger fan. This was a simple card made using some stickers I picked up on my travels. Think they are probably for the wall!


After placing the stickers on the card, I then distressed the edges in Tigger orange with a sponge and punched out some pink flowers and added gems to the centres for a finishing touch.

Thanks for stopping by to take a look, please drop by Wednesday for my first Little Claire card for the Digi-Stamp Challenge!

Pink Flower Birthday Card using Tonic Die and Lawn Fawn Die

Good Morning and Happy New Year!!! Hope you all had a good one!

Today I bring you a Birthday card I made using pink papers, a Tonic Die and matching sentiment. The punched flowers are a Stampin' Up! punch and letters are from the Lawn Fawn range. (from my Local Craft Shop Sprinkle Twinkle)
I love both these dies, they always cut cleanly and are pretty. I've kept the colour schemes girly with the pink background and kept the layout simple. To finish I added pearls to the centres of the punched flowers.

Thanks for looking,

Sarah.
