Moon baby card with a sneak peak

I'm going to a baby shower soon and couldn't resist using the Stampin' Up! Moon Baby stamp set to create this card.  It also has a sneak peek of the new Card Front Builder Thinlits dies which will be available from 1 August.

Stampin' Up! Moon Baby stamp set card by Angela Lovel, Angela's PaperArts

To create this card I started with a Stampin' Up! Daffodil Delight card base.  I then took a piece of Whisper White card stock and diecut the stars/moon along the top using a die from the new Card Front Builder Thinlits die set.  These dies will be available from 1 August 2017 and can be bundled to get a 10% discount when purchasing the Carols of Christmas stamp set.  Whilst these dies are bundled with a Christmas stamp set they are versatile and don't have to be used on just Christmas cards. 

I then stamped the stars and baby onto the Whisper White cardstock and layered a piece of Birthday Memories Designer Series Paper at an angle along the bottom of the card stock before adhering it to the card base.  A piece of 1/8" sheer Whisper White ribbon was adhered along the diagonal edge too. I also used some of the Birthday Memories DSP to create the baby's jumpsuit and Silver Glimmer paper formed the umbrella to which I added a small Rhinestone coloured with an alcohol marker.  The sentiment is also from the Moon Baby stamp set, was stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and diecut using one of the smaller Layering Ovals dies.  A co-ordinating scallop Layering Ovals die was used to diecut some Daffodil Delight card stock to go under the sentiment.  A couple of Silver Glimmer stars were diecut using the small star from the Santa's Sleigh thinlits set.

Here are my Card Front Builder Thinlits dies and Carols of Christmas stamp set and you'll see the top die was the one used to create this card.  These products sold individually or as a bundle will be available to purchase from my online store from 1 August 2017.  I'll have more card samples available soon using this bundle - so please check back later.

Want to meet new crafty friends?

Do you like crafting and want to meet new crafty friends? Then now is the perfect time to join my Stampin' Up! team as you get $356 of products when you join for only $169 up until 31 July, 2017 plus you get to meet new crafty friends too.



As an example of crafting with friends, each month demonstrator friends get together at a team night and craft together.  I made these cards at our team night last night - lots of fun and inspiration as we were playing with a One Sheet Wonder theme. If you're not familiar with the One Sheet Wonder technique, you take a piece of 12x12"/30.5x30.5cm Designer Series Paper and cut it up in different sized pieces to make cards.  Click here to see what I used as a base and tweaked it to suit.  I was able to make 11 cards from the one sheet of paper.  The Floral Boutique Designer Series Paper I used on these cards has unfortunately retired, but it was so popular that Stampin' Up! has brought it back in five different colours with a limited number of patterns - the Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper stack.  All other products used are current, please click on the picture of the product at the end of this post to see more details.

If you live in Australia, why not contact me today to learn more about the benefits of joining Stampin' Up!, especially while there's extra free product on offer up until 31 July.  You don't have to run a business and can join to enjoy a discount on your hobby supplies.

Eastern Christmas card

I love discovering ways to use an everyday stamp set to create a Christmas card.  The Eastern Beauty stamp set and Eastern Medallions Thinlits Dies bundle is versatile and I made this "Christmas in July" card using this everyday set.

Stampin' Up! Eastern Palace Christmas Card by Angela Lovel, Angela's PaperArts

To create this card I started with a Fresh Fig card base.  I then partially embossed some Very Vanilla card stock with the Oh My Stars Textured Impressions Embossing folder.  I stamped Merry Christmas from the Flurry of Wishes stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and adhered the card stock to the card base.

I created the large poinsettia star flower by stamping onto Fresh Fig card stock using the Eastern Beauty stamp set and die cut it using one of the dies from the Eastern Medallions Thinlits Dies.  I added some 1/8" Gold Ribbon behind the star flower and adhered to the Very Vanilla card stock.  A Gold Faceted Gem completed the flower. I stamped and diecut three stars from the same stamp and thinlits dies set.  You will see that the stamped/diecut stars are the same eight point stars as those on the Oh My Stars embossing folder.

To create the diagonal border I diecut some Very Vanilla card stock using the Flourish Thinlits border die.  I then threaded some Eastern Palace Designer Series Paper through the border die and adhered it onto the Very Vanilla layer to complete the card.
