Sunshine Congrats

Happy Father’s Day to all great dads out there!  Although neither follow my blog, I am blessed with a great dad myself and my husband is absolutely the best of the best to our three kids.  They definitely deserve to be honored, as I’m sure yours do too!  So Happy Father’s Day!

Now, onto my card.

Life has been crazy busy lately (gotta love end of the school year), so I’m not carding (yes, that’s my verb) as much as I’d love, but this was a fun one to make.  A dear friend needed a retirement card and this is what I created…

Sunshine Sayings - Stamp It Up With Jaimie

I started with a base color of Watermelon Wonder and then layered some Daffodil Delight over Whisper White and put it all together.

Sunshine Sayings - Stamp It Up With Jaimie - Stampin Up

I used the “smudge” stamp from the Sunshine Sayings Bundle for the background detail behind the flowers.  I then cut out two flowers, one in Pear Pizzazz and the other in Watermelon Wonder, to layer over my “smudge.”  I then added a Daffodil Delight bow to tie the flowers together.

Sunshine Sayings - Stampin Up - Stamp It Up With Jaimie

The sentiment comes from the Sunshine Wishes Thinlits which comes in the bundle and was cut in Whisper White.  The rest of the sentiment comes from the Sunshine Sayings stamp set and was stamped in Daffodil Delight.

Enjoy!

PRODUCT LIST:

Spotlight Technique

For today’s card share, I’m playing with the spotlight technique.

I started with a base color of Watermelon Wonder and layered it with some Whisper White.  Before securing it down, I placed some of the new Mini Striped Watermelon Wonder Ribbon to the left.

Sheltering Tree - Stamp It Up With Jaimie

I then first stamped the trunk and leaves from the Sheltering Tree Stamp Set in Memento Black.  I like this black because it’s not as potent as the Archival Black and it gave the effect I wanted.

I then stamped the trunk in Soft Suede and the leaves in Watermelon Wonder on a separate, smaller piece of Whisper White.  I layered this over some Basic Black cardstock and then layered it (as best I could in the right spot) over the Memento Black tree.

Sheltering Tree - Stamp It Up With Jaimie - Stampin Up

I chose a smaller sentiment for today’s card as I wanted something simple and minimal.  The thank you comes from the Thoughtful Banner Stamp Set and was stamped in Watermelon Wonder.

Enjoy!

Confetti Celebration Birthday Card

It’s that time of the week for the Mojo Monday challenge.

mojo452For today’s card share I pulled out the new Confetti Celebration Stamp Set and the new Blooms & Bliss DSP.  I started with Sahara Sand as the base for my card and I first stamped the light bulb stamp in Sahara Sand at the top of the card.

Confetti Celebration - Stamp It Up With Jaimie

I then took two patterns from the Blooms & Bliss DSP and layered them over each other. and put a strip of Island Indigo to cover the seam.  I then heat embossed in white the Hooray sentiment from the Confetti Celebration Stamp Set over Island Indigo.

Confetti Celebration - Stamp It Up With Jaimie - Stampin Up

I stamped a quick Happy Birthday in Sahara Sand also from the Confetti Celebration Stamp Set just to add a little something-something.

Enjoy!

Our blog today is focusing on new items from the 2016-2017 Annual Catalog.

For my card I’m using the Flourishing Phrases Bundle.  Gotta love those bundles and the catalog is chuck full of them!

I started with a base of Emerald Envy and stamped the larger flower stamp from the Flourishing Phrases Stamp Set in Emerald Envy over it.

Flourishing Phrases - Stamp It Up With Jaimie

I then cut out the larger flower from the Flourish Thinlits in Daffodil Delight and applied it in the center of the card.

Flowering Phrases - Stamp It Up With Jaimie - Stampin Up

I added a hint of Daffodil Delight ribbon behind the sentiment which is also from the bundle and is stamped in Emerald Envy.  I used the Triple Banner Punch to trim the end of it and added a medium sized Metal Rimmed Pearl to finish it off.

Enjoy!

Falling Flowers

If you’re swinging by from Amy’s blog – Welcome!

I am having so much fun playing with the new goodies from the new Annual Catalog!  My favorite Designer Series Paper has been English Gardens.  However, I must say that the new Blooms & Bliss DSP is by far my new favorite paper!!!  I love the pattern and the colors are so sweet and pretty together.

141654G (2)

For today’s card share, I started with some Sweet Sugarplum.  I took one of the patterns from the Blooms & Bliss DSP and layered it over some Whisper White.  I then took another pattern from the Blooms & Bliss DSP and cut it in a 1′ strip and used the Triple Banner Punch to snip the ends.

Falling FLowers - Stamp It Up With Jaimie

The sweet flowers and leaves comes from the Falling Flowers Bundle and were cut in Flirty Flamingo and Sahara Sand.  The sentiment comes from the Better Together Stamp Set and was stamped in Sweet Sugarplum.

Enjoy!

PRODUCT LIST:

Dapper Denim CAS(E)

Sometimes you just need a CAS(E) card (clean and simple).  I grabbed the Scenic Sayings for today’s card because the sentiments are on the larger side and can really stand alone.

I started with a base of Dapper Denim and layered it with Whisper White.

Scenic Sayings - Stamp It Up With Jaimie

Let me tell you, if you were on the fence with the new layering shapes (circles, squares, hearts, and squares) – They’re a must have.  I had the thinlits from last year’s catalog and thought they’d suffice, but after using the layering circles – I’m convinced!  I love, love, love the tight layer they afford as well as the 8 scalloped circles included!

I stamped the sentiment from the Scenic Sayings in Dapper Denim and then cut out the two circles using the Layering Circles Thinlits.  I finished the card off with a bit of the new Dapper Denim Ruched Ribbon.

Enjoy!

NEW Sunshine Sayings Card

I received my order full of new goodies today in the mail.  (I may or may not have been stalking my front door.)  I couldn’t wait to put them to use.

I was inspired by the Sunday Stamps layout challenge this week for today’s card.

SSC128FI went for bright, fun colors to coordinate with the fun, whimsy stamps and thinlits in this bundle.  I started with a base of Bermuda Bay and then layered it with Whisper White.

Sunshine Sayings - Stamp It Up With Jaimie

I cut a piece of Daffodil Delight and Flirty Flamingo (love this new pink) and off set them one over the other.  I then used the flower builder from the Sunshine Sayings Stamp Set and stamped a few flowers in Flirty Flamingo over the same color.

Sunshine Sayings - Stampin Up - Stamp It Up With Jaimie

I then cut out the “love” and stamped the sentiment in Bermuda Bay and Daffodil Delight butterflies using the coordinating thinlits in the Sunshine Sayings Bundle.

Boy 8th Birthday

My sweet boy celebrated his 8th birthday on Monday.  This kid is amazing and I just love being his mommy!  One of his favorite loves (among all things Lego) is to read graphic novels.

I knew for his birthday card I wanted to make a “comic” card.

Here’s how it turned out:

Balloon Celebration - Stamp It Up With Jaimie

It doesn’t “scream” comic book, but my little man got it and loved it.

I started with a base of Dapper Denim and layered it with some Real Red.

I then cut out different sized squares and rectangle in Whisper White and matted them in Dapper Denim.  I used different stamps from the Balloon Celebration stamp set and coordinating balloon punch to fill in the boxes in Real Red and Dapper Denim.

Balloon Celebration - Stampin Up - Stamp It Up With Jaimie

The number 8 comes from the Number of Years Stamp Set and I used the coordinating framlit to cut it out.

Cards are so much fun to make, but to specially make one for someone you love dearly is even better!

Enjoy!
