Isn’t this robot the cutest? This set is called Lots of Bots and is available from the Autumn-Winter Mini Catalogue.

I KNOW I’ve said it before, but I LOVE colouring in stamped images – I find it very relaxing and will often sit and stamp out a whole sheet of cardstock and then colour in the images while watching/listening to the telly when hubby is out on a Wednesday evening. I LUUUURVE *MY* Wednesday nights!!!! – Not ‘cos hubby is OUT but ‘cos of the stampin’-time – thought I’d clarify that! LOL.

Lots of Bots has this cute little stamp that has 3 nuts and bolts on it and I’ve randomly and repeatedly stamped that image over the Tangerine Tango cardstock to create a stamped background. If you look REALLY carefully  you can just see it. I’ve also gone for texture, hardware and staples on this card as it adds to the whole technology/robotty theme.

Stamps: Lots of Bots

Cardstock: Kiwi Kiss, Tangerine Tango, Pacigic Point, Whisper White.

Inks: Basic Black, Tangerine Tango, Kiwi Kiss, Pacific Point

Accessories: Kiwi Kiss Striped Ribbon, Blender Pens, Jumbo Eyelets, Crop-o-dile, staples, Big Shot, Polka Dot embossing folder, Corner Rounder Punch.

Male Birthday Card

Posted in Cards tagged , , , , , , , , , at 11:45 am by bejewelledcreations

It was my brother’s and nephew’s birthdays last week, so I thought I’d share with you the cards I made. This is the card for my brother:

I started with the patterned paper (Windsor Knot DSP) and pulled the colours from that to use for the cardstock and inks (Sage Shadow, Old Olive, So Saffron and Chocolate Chip).

The stamp is from the Sale-a-Bration set Happy Moments – which is very cute. This stack of birthday presents has come in very handy for masculine birthdays. I stamped the image a couple of times on co-ordinating patterned paper and cut out the presents I wanted, and glued them over the stamped image – this saved colouring in all the presents!

You can just about see the Polka Dots embossed cardstock – that’s made with the Sizzix Big Shot which is available as from tomorrow!!! WooHoo!!

This next card is a fun boy’s card. My nephew turned 12 during the week (gosh, getting so grown up!!), but I thought he’d still appreciate the fun of robots. Twelve is a tricky age – not quite old enough for being “really cool”, but too old for really childish cards. I’ve used a NEW stamp set here, Lots of Bots from the Autumn-Winter mini. Here’s my effort anyway.

Here’s a closer look.  I used the Polka Dots embossing folder and also die- cut the numbers with my Stampin’ Up! Medium Sizzlits “Timeless Type Junior Alphabet” die and my Big Shot. A quick turn of the handle and I had these PERFECT numbers! It couldn’t have been easier.

I stamped the inside too. The paperclip is to hold some money!

I think the Lots of Bots stamp set will get a fair bit of use…. it’s great for boy cards and also ‘fun’ cards. The colours for the robot card are; Pacific Point, Kiwi Kiss (both current In-Colors), and Tempting Turquoise (with a splash of Tangerine Tango for some of the robot detail.)
