What Will You Stamp? #161 Bird Banter

The Design Team and I are back today and we’ve had some fun with the cute #birdbanter stamp set for #wwys161. I hadn’t had a chance to use this set yet but I had seen loads of projects with it, so I was excited to get it a go!

I had made a simple three colour card today but I got to use my STAMPARATUS!!! Yes, I finally cracked it out of the box (it has been neglected for about 2 months now!) and I have to say it was once of the easiest stamp placement tools I have ever used. I LOVED that you can move the plates around without having to move the stamp. Don’t know what a Stamparatus is? Check it out here.

I used the Stamparatus, to place my little birds, one on top of the other for my card. It was so quick and easy! I even remembered to stamp one on the inside of my card!

I used the new Stampin’ Blends to colour my birdies in; a little bit of Pool Party for the head & body and a cute daffodil delight beak! The Stampin’ Blends have been SO popular they are no unable to be ordered as we (yes, you too!) have depleted the stock levels! At this stage, to keep my with demand, the Blendswill be back in stock around May 2018.

I love that this card is a great one for my “male” stash. I always seem to never have those on hand when I need them!

Hopefully you’ve got this stamp set in your collection and can join us this week for our #wwys161 challenge! Create your card and upload it to the WWYS blog. We love seeing what you create.

Happy Crafting,

What Will You Stamp? #141 – Labels to Love

Who doesn’t love a stamp set that has loads of versatility for holidays all throughout the year. The “Labels to Love” stamp set is perfect for exactly that and it is also perfect for #wwys141 this week!

Today I chose to use the super cute Mini Pizza Boxes for my project and then made some equally as cute (and quick) 3″ x 3″ cards to go inside my mini pizza box.

To decorate the box, I cut a piece of DSP 8.4cm x 8.4cm and adhered to the top of the mini pizza box using snail adhesive.

I teamed the Labels to Love stamp set with my favourite Designer Series Paper from the holiday catalogue – Around The World. It has lots of great patterns to use, it is hard to decide which is my favourite! I showcased some more of the DSP with my 3×3 cards:

I must admit when I opened the DSP and saw the “soldier” paper, I gasped. It is such a fun and adorable piece of DSP. The “food” one (top left) is super fun as well.

I can’t wait to create more gift card packs using the mini pizza boxes… if you haven’t got them, you MUST get them now. And just before you do that, don’t forget to pop on over to the WWYS blog and check out more Labels to Love creations.

Happy Crafting,
