DT: Happy Little Stampers Anything Goes with Dies challenge

Hi there! Thanks for popping along to my little corner of the Web. I’ve got another Happy Little Stampers design team contribution to share with you today. This was for the Anything Goes with Dies blog.

This card turned into a labour of love … lots of stamping, masking and colouring with just a bit of die cutting!

I made this for my cousins daughters birthday as the girl images reminded me of her.

I cut a piece of 6×6 white and stamped the Polaroid image from Concord and 9th all over it, and then masking I filled in some of the gaps. Next I took the girl images which were magazine stamps and stamped those as the photo images… again lots of masking to keep the images within the frames.

I then coloured them using both Stampin Blends and promarkers until the whole sheet was coloured in. I also edged the panel with black.

Next I stamped and die cut the camera image and then coloured that in. I also die cut some hearts and coloured them using the same colours so they would coordinate.

I decided to then put a few things together to make the sentiment. Firstly the smile die from Lawn Fawn which I stacked a few together to give it dimension and then some little alphas. Then Your from Happy Celebrations and Birthday from Biggest Wish.

I added some foam behind a few elements and behind the main die cut panel I added some ribbon.

I then went to town with wink of Stella on the hearts and the smile die cut.

Inside the card I added three individual Polaroid images I had cut out and coloured and some more of the hearts.

For the envelope I kept it simple and just added the stamped hearts in similar colours.

Love how this turned out.

Happy crafting!

Turnabout sunshine

I love the Turnabout stamps from Concord & 9th. They are super clever but also super easy to use. I own two of them and for this card made use of both of them.

I used the confetti and the Radiate ones to create the background. It was perhaps a little busy by the end but still I think it’s fab.

Then I added the sunshine and the circle of glitter embossed card to the centre and added it to the red card. I then stamped and embossed the sentiment and die cut that using a banner die from the Petals and More die set.

I decided to finish the sun off with the wink of Stella and glossy accents to add dimension and shine.

Love the look of this as the finishing touch.

Happy crafting!
