Happy Piggin’ Birthday!

Aww, how cute is this little guy? And that hat is just adorable! The inspiration for this little guy came from my daughter who is a huge fan of pigs. As soon as she spotted this bundle in the catalogue, she begged me to order it. With the numerous combinations you can stamp and die cut with the bundle, I just couldn’t say no.

The number of animals / combinations you can make with the bundle are amazing, so many different animals to create, which we loved trying to work out when we first got the set. I’ve been stuck in a Halloween / Christmas phase lately so tried to make this card for a different occasion – this one being for a birthday. The balloons, present and flower all come in the same set so it’s great to set the theme of the card as well as create lots of different animals.

My daughter went for Magenta Madness and Highland Heather as part of her card, which I think looks great together! What do you think?

What colours would you put together and with which animal?

Best Wishes,

Triangular Shades of Purple

Happy Hump Day to you all! I hope you are all keeping safe and well? Today, I wanted to showcase some dies recently introduced in the Annual Catalogue. I love basic shapes – squares, circles, rectangles – and we have a lot of these available as dies with stitched effect too. However, we didn’t have any triangles until now..

At first I wasn’t too sure how I was going to use them, but I knew I wanted them to be purple and not used around a sentiment. In the end, I kept playing with their positioning and this is what I came up with. I love the differing shades of purple and how they work with one another – another reason to use Stampin’ Up! colours.

I then finished the card off with the ‘Lovely You’ stamp set and kept the card neutral from any event, with a touch of Crumb Cake ink to highlight the floral stamp used. I hope you like this as much as I do?!

Best Wishes,
Suzanne

Tone on Tone Falling Flowers

Tone on tone was introduced to me in my early days as a demonstrator by my lovely upline, Pootles. It is the amazing technique where you stamp onto cardstock with the same colour ink as the card. My example shows the GORGEOUS Highland Heather, teamed with the Falling Flowers stamp set.

I don’t know why, but I always reach for the floral stamp sets when doing tone on tone cards. But I’m sure you’ll agree that the Falling Flowers set suits this perfectly. You can’t go wrong with flowers stamped in random patterns.

Why not have a go yourselves?

Best Wishes,
Suzanne
