Petal Parade #2

Today’s card is the one from last Friday week where the ladies took home some homework.  They had enough supplies given to 007wm-blogthem to create the bottom part of the card & then they had to create the remainder of the card with supplies they had at home.  I have asked they bring them back this Friday for show & tell, so fingers crossed they don’t forget.  I love looking at what others create especially when we are all using the same basic supplies.

49. Sweet Sorbet DSP – Thank You


Petal Parade

Our card we created in Crafty Creations yesterday arvo was using last year’s SAB products.  Yep, I still have a heap of the 006bb-bloggorgeous “Sweet Sorbet” DSP sitting on my shelf & it is the perfect time to use it, as this is my volunteer class.

I decided that to take the best advantage of this paper was to use the “Sunburst” Technique for our card.  We had a full class yesterday which was great & everyone seemed to enjoy creating their card using this technique.

In fact, I gave each of the ladies a little bit of homework where they were given enough DSP to create another card using the same paper & technique.  I will post mine in a couple of days.

48. Petal Parade – Best Wishes


Happy Birthday Elaina

It is my niece’s 2nd Birthday today & hit the “terrible 2’s” a few months back.  Her mum calls her “Lucy” when she is playing the devil.

For something a little different and after seeing how much she loves “Olaf” I thought it would be a good idea to create a card with him on it.  Plus, it is something a little different & Punch Art!  I love punch art but it doesn’t love me.  I just can’t seem to get it to come together, but I must admit I am happy with this one.  I found a great tutorial on Pinterest by Suzanne.  Thank you so much, you made it very clear & easy, especially for me.  I did do a couple things a little different, but it still looks ok.003ee-blog

When I went looking for a bit of DSP to represent a snowy background, I found the DSP – Sweet Sorbet from 2014 SAB & knew that this would be perfect for the card.  This was adhered to the Base Card  Basic Black, while I embossed a piece of Whisper White with the Decorative Dots EF to represent snow. This piece was adhered to a piece of Basic Black prior to adhering to the Base Card at a slight angle.

Once I had created “Olaf“, he was adhered to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I also used a Stampin’ Dimensional for his face & 2 for his head to adhere to the card.  I think it gives him more of a “POP”!

Oh Yea” was printed using MDS, punched with the 1″ Circle Punch before adhering to a piece of Basic Black punched using the 1 1/4″ Scallop Circle Punch.

I cut the #2 from a Die I have had for years from Silver Glitter Paper & adhered to a Basic Black circle which has been punched with the 3/4″ Circle Punch.  The little Balloon bit was created with the Heart from the Owl Punch & adhered to the back of the balloon.

Prior to adhering to the card, I wrapped a small piece of Pool Party Baker’s Twine around his hand & adhered to the back of the Balloon with a Glue Dot. prior to adhering to the card with a Stampin’ Dimensional.

To finish it off, I tied a small bow with the same twine & adhered to his hand with a Glue Dot.

I hope she likes it!

Until next time, Happy Stampin’
