Hello! I hope you’re well and finding time to craft. We’ve been busy here enjoying the summer holiday, not long left now until they go back to school. The summer holidays have flown by!
Adam and I did a little crafting the other night and I wanted to show you the result. I asked him to choose the stamp set, and all the colours and this is the fun birthday card we came up with. I think he did a great job!
I found out the new Seasonal Labels dies, which you can find in the new Mini Catalogue for July – December (you can order a copy here) and cut out the largest label in Basic White Thick, and also the stripy pattern paper from the Pattern Party Designer Series Paper.
These Seasonal Labels dies, aren’t just for Christmas cards, you can certainly use them all year round as we have on our Puffin card.
While I’m talking about the paper, this is the bumper pack of papers you can choose with Stampin’ Rewards, and pay just £2 for, with an order of exactly £150. If you have your Annual Catalogue handy, you’ll find it on page 171.
We cut the large paper die-cut in half and glued the two halves to the reverse of the white die-cut. Doesn’t it give the impression that the die cut is huge? It’s pretty big as it is, but it’s great to extend the use of your die cuts like this. Just cut them up and move them apart.
Inside the card, we decorated it with lots of stamped candles, and ‘Make a Wish’ inside. We added a strip of that Be Dazzling paper, which is one of the free choices you have until the end of September, for a £45 spend.
To get a nice black image of the puffin, we used the Stamparatus and inked and stamped it 3 times. I like to use the Stamparatus like this with solid black images, but also with Adam as he finds it easier to stamp as he’s only 7. To be honest I’m going to start using it a bit more for myself as it does seem to keep my hands clean!
