As promised yesterday, here is part 2 in the “Cheerful Critters series”!
Again, the images has been stamped in Memento ink and coloured with Blendabilities. These ones are Daffodil Delight and Old Olive. I think I also used a touch of the Pink Pirouette lightest tone to colour his hands and beak.
I stuck with the “Let’s Party” sentiment for all three placards (sorry if I ruined the suspense for tomorrow!), because I thought it was appropriate for the boys and their third birthday party. We went to the soft play centre at the Sports Centre in town and they all seemed to have a lovely time. We got them each a game and an animal cushion that “transforms” from their house to an animal. So the dog changes into a kennel, for example. We got three different ones, and the twins were very definite about who should have which card, and who should have which animal! Alfie loved his, which is rather gratifying 🙂
We have another third birthday coming up next weekend, so I will need to get on and make a card for that. More girlie this time, and maybe with some shoes involved as Izzy is very into her shoes!
Tomorrow I will share with you the last in this set, the bunny. I hope that you have liked these cards, and can see how easy it is to make things which are thesame but different. I’m already thinking how I could “dress these up” for Christmas – don’t you think these guys would look amazing in red and white, with Christmas hats and Christmas sentiments on their boards? Cuuute!
And last night I sat and made a whole bunch of backgrounds for my cards using the Flower Patch stamp set – I made 16! It’s the first time I have inked it up, having got the bundle of the stamps and the framelits as a half priced item on a large order a little while ago. They are photopolymer stamps and are made for layering, so the photopolymer makes that so easy. I played with a number of different colours and have a range of colour options to finish off and add to my cards. As I said, I have a plan to try to sell some Mother’s Day cards at work, and as that is only a couple of weeks away now, I need to get going. I thought that the Flower Patch set was ideal for these, as although it is a flowery set, it is bold and fresh and modern. I plan to do multiple sentiment options per card, so people can choose which they want to add to the card, and also have the option for birthdays, etc. I also cut a number of card bases in different colour options to put together when I get another chance to “play”!
If you would like the chance to earn the Flower Patch and Flower Fair stamp and framelit bundle for 50% off, then talk to me about hosting a party with your friends, family, colleagues or anyone you want to invite, and hopefully they will spend enough between them to hit the “sweet spot” of £300 in orders to get you that half price item. Alternatively, you can just buy the bundle – it is great value even at full price, and seriously versatile. If you do want to host a party, then don’t wait – March is the perfect time as for every £45 order placed, you and your guests earn a free product. And what price is better than free, right?! (There’s some exciting news about that coming next week, so do drop by on Tuesday to find out about that!)
