Hello lovelies, Welcome! today I am really thrilled to be part of Sara Levin's Stamping Sunday Blog Hop. For those who don't know me, my name is Sharni Haines and I'm from South Australia. You may have started here or just come from the lovely .......... Sara Levin!
The theme this February is creations from the Happiness Blooms Memories and More card kit. You get ......
* 50 total double-sided cards (2 each of 25 designs) in 3" x 4" (7.6 x 10.2 cm) and 4" x 6" (10.2 x 15.2 cm) sizes * 6 single-sided 4" x 6" (10.2 x 15.2 cm) specialty cards * 4 sticker sheets
I have decided to create a collection of cards mostly using the Night of Navy card bases provided (that's why they are there!) and adding a little twist of my own to the designs.
Being an animal lover, I couldn't resist popping in a little furry critter here and there. The colours are so amazingly bright and out there that these cards lends themselves to birthday and other celebration type cards.
I used the Happiness Blooms Memories and More kit as my base to every card I have created and just built on that. I added any birthday greeting I wanted and my favorite animals. ( Bella & Friends Stamp Set)
I think you can have a lot of fun with these crazy colours and designs. Here I have used the Stitched Rectangle Framelits to create a layered effect.
I think this shaker card is my fave! I popped some foam adhesives underneath the top of the card and filled the middle with flowers I punched from the matching Bitty Blooms Punch Pack and stuck a dot from the Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots on the top of each one. The silver sequins are my own and the words actually came from the top card that I used.
Celebrate Your Day was embossed in White Embossing Powder onto Night of Navy.
I also had some fun with the smaller card kits and added some stickers that are included in the kit. Here I have fussy cut out the middle of this card front and added my own picture. ( Postcard Pals Clear-Mount Stamp Set) I think designs are endless and what we add to these fun kits is quite versatile.
My last card is a fun froggy one. (couldn't resist!) I only used a little strip of the card kit on the outside, and some more on the inside underneath the frog. The card base is Crumb Cake.
To show you a different way to use this card kit, being a hot summer here in Australia, I have been inspired by Sandi MacIver and created these super cute Mini Beach Bags! Her Tutorial video is so good, I didn't bother making one, the only difference is I used up the whole 4x6"sheet of paper instead of cutting it down. So no waist!
I filled mine with our favourite glue... as they are a little taller than Sandi's ( she put washi tape in hers).
These will become a fun gift to my regular Maple Stampers and door prizes for my Maples Getaway!
The tags are made from the small 1 3/4 x 7/8" Oval Punch and the Stickers from the Happiness Blooms Memories and More kit just stuck onto the top. The Orange ribbon is from the SAB ribbon offer now finished.
I hope you found my ideas interesting, useful and inspirational.
