An Out of this World Birthday Card with Karen!

First of all, some wonderful news! We’re having one of the biggest sales the year, our Black Friday Sale is NOW ON at ppstamps.com! So what are you waiting for? Start shopping!

Karen is back today sharing with us to this super cute birthday card!

I love the unique composition of this card! She first cut a piece of Teal Sapphire cardstock with the Slimline Oriental Cover Die, trimmed it down and adhered it to an A2 card base.

She used one of the geometric stencils from the Spatial Concept Trip Stencils 360° to create a focal point for her card. I just love the rainbow colors!

I love how she further cut the design with a circle die for some added interest to the card!

She coloured some adorable images and a sentiment from the Let’s meet IRL stamp set and adhered them to the circular panel.

Then she added a few shimmery gems as a finishing touch.

Thank you so much Karen for sharing this delightful inspiration!

Don’t forget that our Black Friday SALE ends Monday, 29 Nov 2019, so hop to our shop now! Thanks for stopping by, have a great day!

Bond With Nature Canada

An Adorable Beaver Birthday Card by Allison!

Hello friends, I’m glad you stopped by! Today we have Allison sharing her delightful birthday card with us! This card is just the cutest ever!

Allison used the adorable beaver from Bond With Nature Canada as the main character. I love how she used the log bundle image from the set to build the beaver’s dam!

The coloring job done on these images is so incredible! I love how the beige background compliments the colors she used.

I also love how she modified the images and added the green leaves to make the dam look so structured and neat! The layering really gives a three dimensional look.

She finished off the card with the “Happy birthday” sentiment in a speech bubble and the white heat embossed punny sentiment on contrasting black cardstock at the bottom.

Thank you so much for sharing this beautiful card with us Allison!

A Charming Birthday Card by Stephanie!

Hello crafty friends! Hope you all are having a wonderful day! Stephanie is back today to share a super colorful birthday card!

Stephanie used our I Made You a Cake stand-alone die to create this gorgeous looking centre piece.

She used a bunch of cardstock scraps cut in different widths to create this eye catching rainbow hue background. I love how she kept her 2-tier cake mostly white which makes it really pops from the background.

The yellow polka dots were made using a tiny hole puncher. The sentiment was from our Bond With Nature Canada stamp set which she white heat embossed onto the icing piece.

This card is clean and simple, yet so vibrant and charming. Thank you so much for sharing this with us Stephanie!

Cuteness Overload!!

Hello! I just had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend with my family here in Canada and I’m super grateful. To start this week off, I have two super cute cards from our Creative Team!

First up we have Ashley’s Happy Birthday card!

Oh boy, this card is so full of positive energy!! I love how Ashley made this colorful background using the Waterspout Stencils 360TM. Good news is that this stencil already comes in the Stencils 360TM Starter Kit!

Ashley cut her card panel with the Dots Meet Dashes Large Rectangle Overlays for some added border detailing.

Using the Waterspout Stencils 360TM, she chose a turning interval of 30° and blended a variety of rainbow colors for her background using Distress Oxide inks (Festive Berries, Carved Pumpkin, Squeezed Lemonade, Twisted Citron, Salty Ocean and Wilted Violet). She chose a pair of adorable puppies from Fun Night Out for her focal images, along with some accessory images and coloured them in Copic Markers.

To finish off, she added some gems to give it the extra sparkly look! Such a fun and happy card!

Next we have Bobbi’s slimline creation. Her card measures 3-1/2″ wide X 8-1/2″ tall, and she paired the Never Lose Hope Shadow Dies with the Happy Track and Field (Chapter 1) stamp and coordinating die sets.

I just love the composition of this card! She used the trio of fans in the centre and added the Never Lose Hope shadow die as her bold sentiment. I love how she gave each fan the extra colorful flag to wave! Super cute!

She stamped the leaping frog head, cut that out using the heart shape part of the shadow phrase die and added it to the heart in the word “HOPE”. This resonates with the frog leaping on top!

Additional windy swirls were added using a Uni-ball Pen Signo white gel Pen to complete her card.  The sentiment “Take a Leap of Faith” adds the perfect finishing touch.

Thank you so much Ashley and Bobbi for your amazing creations!
