Cute Layout

A Cute Layout Trio

I apologize for the lateness of this post. I have been having internet issues. We are now into a new catalog, so some of these items may not be available. BUT, as you can see, you can use your own supplies with this versatile fun and cute layout.

Get ready for a FAB (Friends Across Borders) post today that celebrates easy crafting with a cute layout and cards that are fun to make.

Connie’s Been Busy!

This is a fun layout that you can use to create lots of cards that show off pretty Designer Series Paper and fun punched or die cut images. Each card looks different depending on the DSP you use and the other elements you add. This first card is so cute!

A Cute Layout Ladybugs

Hello Ladybug!

I used the super cute Ladybug builder punch for this card. I stamped the Real Red wings with Memento Black ink dots using the stamp from the Hello Ladybug stamp set.

All my cards today use the Heart and Home DSP. This paper has some pretty patterns and colours, and I love the woodgrain side to add just a little interest when I really want to show off other elements of my card.

A Cute Layout Dragonflies

Dragonfly Garden

The second card shows the wonderful bumblebee print from the DSP package, and I accented it with some dragonflies stamped with Cinnamon Cider ink on Pale Papaya cardstock. Don’t forget that there are only a few days left to get the last chance products like Cinnamon Cider ink and cardstock, and the Gilded Gems I used on this card.

A Cute Layout Daisies

Daisies

For the final card I used both the Daisy Punch, which is retiring, and the Medium Daisy Punch which will carryover to the new annual catalogue to create some pretty flowers for my card. The leaves are punched from Night of Navy cardstock using the Bough Punch, which will also continue to be available.

So, gather some pretty Designer Series Paper, some of your favourite punches, and get ready to create some cute and easy cards!

Daffodil Daydream Bundle – Mother’s Day Frame

From My Craft Cabin in Kentucky

It’s another FABulous Saturday and time for a new FAB Stampers post. It’s my turn this week, and I’m making a gift for my Mother-in-law using the Daffodil Daydream Bundle. I did Google Mother’s Day to be sure it’s celebrated in both Canada and Australia!

Daffodil Daydream Bundle

The Daffodil Daydream Bundle is a very versatile set of products. It has beautiful stamps, including a lovely border stamp and speckles that can add so much to a project. The dies will cut out the stamped images, but this set also includes dies to make your own daffodils! Those dies are what I’m using for my project.

Not just for cards!

I know you see a lot of cards on my blog, but our products aren’t just for cards. You can create so many things, including scrapbook pages, decorations and treats for parties and celebrations, and home decor items like this framed piece. This project was inspired by my friend, Colleen, who made a card like this.

How it’s made

First, I cut a piece of Basic White cardstock to fit my frame, and embossed it with the Tasteful Textile 3D embossing folder to give it texture.

Next, I cut the daffodil backgrounds from Basic White, the daffodil detail from So Saffron, and the stems and leaves from Soft Sea Foam. I arranged the stems like I wanted and glued them to the background. For one of the leaves, I curled it a bit with my Bone Folder and adhered only the top and bottom of the leaf, leaving it bowed in the middle for dimension. The flowers pieces are glued together, then adhered to the background with Dimensionals.

I stamped the greeting on Basic White with Soft Sea Foam ink, cut it with a die from Stitched Rectangles, and adhered it with Dimensionals.

Finally, I added three Polished Dots for a little sparkle.

Dahlia Days Bundle – Birthday Girl

Dahlia Days Bundle Birthday Girl Lead

It’s time for another FBP Blog Hop! Today’s theme is Birthday Girl, and I chose the Dahlia Days Bundle for my project.

Birthday Girl!

Our theme today is Birthday Girl, and what could be more girly than pink and lace? I know a lot of girls, big and little, who would love to receive a card like this! Don’t you?

Dahlia Days Bundle

The Dahlia Days Bundle is such a beautiful set of stamps and dies. Not only are there dies to cut out your stamped images but look at that large lovely lacy die! That’s what I’ve used for the front of my card.

Dahlia Days Bundle

Impressive but easy

This is a pretty impressive card, but it’s much easier than it looks. I started with a Polished Pink card base. I didn’t think I liked Polished Pink, but when I pulled it out of my bin, I found I really LOVE it!

Next, I cut two pieces of white slightly smaller than my card front. One was used to cut out the lace. I used the Stitched Rectangle Dies to cut a Frame from the other piece. Don’t throw that inside rectangle away. That’s what I used for all the additional pieces!

Dahlia Days Bundle Birthday Girl

First, I flipped the white frame over and placed Tear N Tape next to the inside border on all four sides of the frame. Second, I placed the lace die cut face down on top of the Tear N Tape and sealed it to the frame. Third, I trimmed off any pieces that were too close to the outer edge.

Next, I placed a piece of Polished Pink ribbon across the front and stuck it to the excess tape on the back. If you need to add more adhesive for the ribbon, that’s ok, but I didn’t need it.

Finally, I added the frame with lace and ribbon to the card front. I still didn’t need any more adhesive. The Tear N Tape behind the lace worked fine for me. But, if you need more adhesive, that’s ok, too.

Details

I used the rectangle cut from our white frame for all my stamped pieces. First, I stamped the frame with foliage with Soft Succulent Ink and the Happy Birthday from Pansy Patch with Evening Evergreen inside the stamped frame. Next, I stamped the flowers with Polished Pink Ink in the extra space.

I cut all these pieces with the coordinating dies and glued the three small flowers to the stamped frame. I used a Dimensional to add the largest flower.

Finally, I added 2021-2022 In Color Jewels to give it a little sparkle.
