Pretty Background Bits Card

Hi Everyone,

Welcome to my Blog.

Today i have been using the beautiful new hostess stamp set called Background Bits. I love this set & it is definitely my favorite hostess set in the new catalogue.

I also used Vertical Greetings stamp set for my sentiment. This is a really simple card to make & would suit lots of different occasions.
I hope you think so too.

The colours i chose for this card were Pacific Point & Very Vanilla. The ribbon is also pacific point & can be found in the new catalogue in lots of colours.


Pacific point card measuring 4 1/4" x 11"  scored @ 5 1/2"

Very vanilla card measuring 4" x 5 1/4"

I scored my very vanilla on the reverse at 3/8" & 4/8" on both sides to create some fancy score lines.

I stamped 3 images on to a stitched shape cut from very vanilla card. My ribbon was wrapped around my card front and stuck to the back with tape.

I used dimensionals to stick everything down, this gave the card added dimension.

6 rhinestones were added to give the card some sparkle.

Serene Scenery & Lift me up bundle

Hi Crafters,

Welcome to my blog today.
I hope you liked my card that i did yesterday. I have had lots of lovely comments about it on my Facebook page.
I decided to use the same bundle again today. It is so beautiful & also great fun to play with!

I also thought that the beautiful Serene Scenery DSP stack would go perfect with this stamp set. The design that i used for this card looks just like the sky & clouds, i think it looks beautiful.
It is a very plain & simple card but i love it. I hope you do to.

My card base was made with Island Indigo & cut to 4 1/2" x 10" & scored @ 5"

I cut a piece of very vanilla  to 4 3/8" x 4 7/8" & put that as my first layer on the card base. I then added my DSP which was cut to 4 1/4" x 4 3/4"

The balloon was cut with silver foil and filled in with Bermuda Bay Glimmer paper.
I stamped 2 clouds with Soft sky onto very vanilla & cut them out.
The sentiment was heat embossed with silver powder onto very vanilla. I cut this with the triple banner punch.
I added some clear wink of stella to the clouds.

I hope you like today's card. Please call back tomorrow for my usual Wednesday project.

Thank you

 Bye for now

Anyway, today i have a very pretty card for you using the beautiful Lift me up bundle. You can buy the stamps & framelits separate but if you buy them together you save an extra 10%!

They really are beautiful & you get lots of stamps & dies. I teamed it with the stunning glimmer paper from SAB which is FREE with an order of £45.
I hope you like it.

I love it! two of my favourite colours are Sweet Sugarplum & Mint Macaron. The big hot air bloon looks so pretty with the glimmer paper behind it.

I used a piece of Sweet Sugarplum measuring 4" x 11 3/4" & scored it at 5 7/8"
I stamped the smallest balloon in mint macaron, the middle size in Sweet Sugarplum & i cut the large balloon from Soft sky. The sentiment was stamped onto Soft Sky with Sweet Sugarplum Ink.
