Stampin’ Up! Handmade Gift and Card

Handmade gift and card using Stampin’ Up! Designer Series Paper, Inks and Stamps!

Good morning peeps, another scorcher here in London today. A complete contrast to yesterday with the rain – very typical that it happened to be on the day my youngest and I bunked off and spent the day at Legoland with our friends. The two boys were dizzy with excitement  and a little hard to keep from running riot and rampaging through the park! They had a great day though. We won’t be going in the summer holidays though as my son does not do queues – oh no not in the slightest!

Anyways, on to today’s project. I love, love, love how this turned out. Don’t look too closely as it’s not perfect as this was the first time I’ve done this. It is a handmade gift, for my friend’s little girl, for her birthday this week.

I bought some cardboard letters from a local craft shop and covered them with the Subtles DSP stack. At first I was going to alternate Spotty then Stripey patterns only in Blushing Bride and Pink Pirouette but decided I would mix the spots and stripes on each letter and also use other colours. I am really pleased with how it turned out.

So now all my friends know what to expect as gifts for their children’s next birthdays or Christmas (whichever is first)! Sorry folks! x

For the card I decided to CASE the catalogue, as I liked this card so much. I substituted some elements for what I had available, but it’s very close to the original.
