3D Paper Craft, Handmade Cards

Loving this colour combo

I had a play in my Craft Room last week and just can’t seemed to put down Daffodil Delight!  I have teamed it here with the glorious Marina Mist (I am actually finding that MM tones beautifully with Baja Breeze so you can actually combine paper in one with ink in another and it still looks great!

First a sweet friends card with an embossing and water colouring technique I picked up on stampin connection – First I have embossed using White Craft Ink and White Embossing Powder and then water coloured with my aqua painters:

Cardstock – Daffodil Delight, Marina Mist, Wild Wasabi, Very Vanilla

DSP – Greenhouse Gala

Embossing – Vintage Wallpaper

Ribbon – Daffodil Delight Satin

Buttons – Vintage from my Mum’s stash!

My dear friend Kat has invited me to give a workshop at her place in a few weeks centred around the theme of “kid’s birthdays”.  So still using a similar colour theme, I had a little play with a small gift bag or lolly bag:

The bag design is an oldie but a goodie, and here you can see I have teamed Baja breeze cardstock with Marina Mist Ink.  Oh yes and a dash of Pear Pizazz! My balloons are created by playing around with the stamps in the Level 3 hostess set Playful Pieces.  My stamp-a-majig was an absolute must-use here line the balloon pieces up exactly.  The sentiment is stamped by inking a portion of the Happy Birthday stamp in level 2 set Afterthoughts

And a reverse view:

And now for a similar friends card but new colour combo:

Card stock – Concord Crush, Pretty in Pink, Very Vanilla

DSP – Lap of Luxury

Ink – Concord Crush – YES ONE COLOUR!!!!!

Embossing – Vintage Wallpaper

Can you see my little Petal Card Envelope tucked under the ribbon?

I first punched the Lap of Luxury DSP with my XL Petal Card Punch.  Then folded in three sides to create a little envelope.  I then chose a sentiment from the Cute By the Inch Level 2 Hostess set and created a little “inchy” note to tuck inside the envelope – such a cute idea!

Blog land is full of fab ways to use this brand new punch… here is another card I created using the same colour theme and a different kind of envelope with the XP Petal Card Punch. The “Love” is actually part of the DSP – Once I started cutting I just couldn’t resist letting the DSP speak for itself.

This time I folded two sides up to create a heart shaped envelope with a little Love Inchy tucked inside.

Hope you enjoyed popping in today and maybe even felt inspired to create something yourself!
