What Will You Stamp? #159 – You Deserve This

Welcome back to this week’s What Will You Stamp? challenge. This week we’re challenging you to use the “You Deserve This” stamp set for #wwys159. This is such a fun stamp set to use to congratulate or encourage your friends and family. The cute little pattern stamps also make for a great background stamp!

I contemplated cutting up the larger stamp (with 5 images; just for you, you deserve this, hooray, thumbs way up and woo hoo) but I chickened out! lol. So instead created my card with the large stamp as the centre piece.

I love to congratulate my INKy team members but always find I never have a card on hand to quickly pop in the post. So today, I used the same design and made a very different coloured versions of the card so I can have these on hand when I need them. I decided that the gorgeous Foil Frenzy Designer Series Paper (DSP) was the perfect choice to celebrate an achievement, so chose to use it in Berry Burst, Tangerine Tango and my favourite, Lemon Lime Twist for my cards. I don’t use DSP anywhere near as much as I should so that was the challenge I gave myself today.

I love how they are all just a little different depending where the stamp was positioned. I think I love it in Lemon Lime Twist the best? What about you? Let me know in the comments which one is your favourite!

Thanks for stopping by today to see my cards. Pop on over to the challenge blog to see what others have made and if you’ve got this stamp set in your collection, it would be great for you to come and join us over at What Will You Stamp? and play along with this week’s challenge.

Happy Crafting,

What Will You Stamp? #123 – Happy Birthday Gorgeous

Yay! Today I get to play along with the amazingly talented ladies from the What Will You Stamp? Design Team for #wwys123. I’ve had a few weeks off from the team as time escaped me and I didn’t have the stamp sets featured, but I’m back and looking at the upcoming schedule, I should be around more often.

Today we’re showcasing the beautiful Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set. I love so much about this stamp set; the flowers, the balloons, the fonts of the sentiments, I was very excited to use it.. I’m trying my best to use products in my cupboard that I haven’t touched and the Gift Bag Punch Board is something I haven’t used, so I’ve given that a whirl for today’s project too!

I’ve used the amazing new bright in- colour Lemon Lime Twist and paired that with Peekaboo Peach and Flirty Flamingo to bring today’s projects to life.

Now… let’s see how awesome they look together!

To get the formation of the balloons on the card, I first stamped them in crumb cake ink on my card base so that they were evenly spaced in a pattern I liked. I then stamped all the coloured balloons on cardstock using the same coloured ink and punched them out using the balloon punch (a favourite product of mine). To give the card a bit of “pop”, I placed each coloured balloon on a stampin’ dimensional and adhered it to the card front. I played around a little bit with the placement of the colours till I found an arrangement I was happy with.

The gift bag was made using the Gift Bag Punch Board. It was so quick and easy, I’ll definitely be using it more in the future. Check out this great video from Meg at Lovenstamps to see how easy it is to use! And the best bit is, you can make lots of different bags in different sizes! Perfect for those last minute gifts you need to give. I punched a small hole in the top of both sides and tied it off with the gorgeous new Lemon Lime Twist Ombre Ribbon – it is to die for!

Thanks for stopping by! Don’t forget to pop over to the the WWYS? Blog to see all the creations this week from the team! It is such a fun stamp set… if you don’t have this stamp set on your wish list already, I’ll be surprised if you don’t after today!

Happy Crafting,
