My 1st “Inspiration by Gwyneth” Post For “The Dragons Den” Blog – April

Thank you for clicking over to have a look at my blog.
Design Team Card


There have been some changes around Stamping Dragon land since my last post on “The Dragons Den” blog and the regular Monday morning posts of “Pick of the Week” have gone – but of course that doesn’t mean that you won’t see lots of new crafting appearing on The Den as inspiration for you – a new series of “Inspiration by …” posts will be appearing throughout the month where the various Design Team members will have a chance to inspire you with lots of crafted creations made using downloads that are available in the Stamping Dragon Designs store, which you can find -> Here!

As this is my 1st “Inspiration by Gwyneth” post I thought I’d make a 1st Birthday card to show you today.  I’ve used a mini theme kit as well as a digi-stamp from the store.  I hope you like it.

Trying to show some of the twinkle on the hat, baloons and circular elements.  Close-up of the coloured in digi-stamp.

Stamping Dragon Designs Item:

  • “Birthday Teddy” – found – Here – in the shop.
  • “Baby Dayz Mini Theme” – found -> Here – in the shop




The background sheet was printed out and cut with a wavy edge using my ScanNcut machine.  The digi-stamp and other elements used from the kit were taken into one of my graphics packages and re-sized and layed out on an A4 working area before I printed them out and cut.  The digi-stamp was coloured in using my ProMarkers.  I went around the outside of the card and the mat using the Frosted Jade ProMarker before building up my card in the design I wanted.  I finished off by going over the hat, baloons and circular embelishments with the clear Wink of Stella and adding the peel-offs.  “Penblwydd Hapus” is Welsh for “Happy Birthday” and “1af” is “1st”.


And that is it from me for today.

Over the next few weeks you’ll find various “Inspiration by …” posts appear on “The Dragons Den” blog, as well as colouring tutorials and other posts by different Design Team members, so please do go and look regularly to have a look for new posts.  I’ll be back with more posts over the coming months as well, so keep an eye out for those.
