Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Friendship Birthday Card

I love creating cards with specific people in mind.
It means I can customize them specifically to that person’s likes and personality.

Today’s card is one I created for a dear friend’s birthday.  She loves bright pink, flowers, and bling…this is what I created…

My card starts off with Lovely Lipstick cardstock.  I then took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and stamped the flowers from the To A Wild Rose in Lovely Lipstick ink (stamping off for the lighter shade) and the leaves around it in Mossy Meadow ink (stamping off for the lighter shade).

I did the same on a separate piece of Whisper White cardstock and cut it out using the Wild Rose Dies.  I adhered it down using Stampin’ Dimensionals and then stamped the sentiment from the To A Wild Rose Stamp Set next to it in Lovely Lipstick ink.

I matted this on Vellum and tied a Lovely Lipstick ribbon next to the flowers.  Lastly, I added a few rhinestones.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! A Good Man Thank You Care

This week’s Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop is a sketch challenge.  Happy hopping!

My card starts off with Night of Navy cardstock which I layered with using a pattern from the Country Club Designer Series Paper.

Next I stamped the image from the A Good Man Stamp Set in Memento Black ink on Whisper White cardstock and cut it out using the Stitched Rectangles Dies.  I colored it in using Night of Navy (dark for hat and light for shirt), Light Mossy Meadow (shorts), Light Balmy Blue (water), Ivory (skin), and Dark Crumb Cake (chair) Stampin’ Blends Markers.

I matted this on Garden Green cardstock and wrapped some Garden Green Twine around it.

I stamped the sentiment on the front, as well as in the inside in Garden Green ink (stamping the heart off first for a lighter shade).

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Lovely Lily Pad Thank You Card Video Tutorial

Yay for it being Wednesday!!!
That means tonight I’ll be sharing a new Live Tutorial with you.

Today’s card(s) is the one I shared last week.  It’s a bright and cheerful thank you card that watercolors on vellum to give a really cool effect.

I started off with the white base as an example, but used the Melon Mambo base as the one I made live.

It’s so hard for me to pick a favorite, which do you like more?

The cards use the Lovely Lily Pad Stamp Set and Lily Pad Dies which are FREE right now during Sale-a-bration with a qualifying order.  So be sure to pick these as your free items while they’re still available!!

Be sure to join me tonight at 7:30 pm EST on my Facebook page for another live tutorial.  If you catch it live, you’ll have the chance to receive it free!

Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tropical Birthday Card

This month’s Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop theme is “Birthday.”  Have fun hopping around and seeing what the team created!

My card starts off with Lovely Lipstick cardstock which I embossed using the Coastal Weave Embossing Folder.

I then took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and stamped the circle from the Swirly Frames Stamp Set in Granny Apple Green ink.  I stamped the sentiment from the Timeless Tropical Stamp Set in Lovely Lipstick ink in the circle.

I then matted this on Granny Apple Green cardstock.  I took a Flirty Flamingo Heart Doily and adhered the edge of it to the right of the Whisper White panel where the flowers will be.

I used the In The Tropics Dies and cut out leaves from Granny Apple Green and Pear Pizzazz cardstock.  I cut out flowers from Lovely Lipstick and Flirty Flamingo cardstock.

Lastly I added a few Lovely Lipstick Enamel Dots.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Clean and Simple Capture the Good Birthday Card

Ready for today’s card…
Super simple…
Super clean…

One word – Minimal.  As I created it and looked at it I debated on whether to add more, but in the end decided it was all about the camera and to leave it as such.

My card starts off with Balmy Blue cardstock.

I then took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and stamped the camera from the Capture the Good Stamp Set in Memento Black ink.  I colored it in using Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I then matted it on more Whisper White cardstock.

I stamped the camera three more times, colored in the lens, and used the Layering Circles Dies to cut out the different sizes of lens to layer using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the “oh snap” in Memento Black ink on Balmy Blue cardstock and cut it out with the same circles dies and added a Mini Library Clip to it.  Lastly, I stamped the “it’s your day” in Balmy Blue ink under the camera.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Witty-Cisms Graduation Card

This week’s Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop is a color challenge.  Happy hopping!

My card today starts off with Basic Black cardstock.  I then cut another panel of Basic Black cardstock and embossed it using the Corrugated Embossing Folder.

Next I took panel of Whisper White cardstock and stamped the congratulations from the Delightful Day Stamp Set in Memento Black ink across the front, sometimes not re-inking in order to get a lighter shade.

I then matted this on Gold Foil and wrapped a Basic Black knot around it.

I stamped the “you did it” from the Witty-Cisms Stamp Set in Memento Black ink and cut it out using the Stitched Shapes Dies.  I then used the Layering Squares Dies to cut out a scalloped Basic Black square and Gold square to layer underneath it.

I then lastly added a few sequins from the Peaceful Poppies Sequins to the one corner.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! So Sentimental Get Well Soon Card

Normally at this point in the week I’d be sharing last week’s Facebook Live Tutorial card.  However, I was under the weather last week and had to cancel.

So I’m sharing with you a regular card today.  However, I am feeling much better and will be on tonight at 7:30 pm EST for my Facebook Live tutorial.  I sure hope you’ll join me!

My card today starts off with Calypso Coral cardstock.

I then took a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I used one of the images from the Parcels & Petals Stamp Set and stamped it in Calypso Coral starting at the bottom full strength and then stamped it twice more without re-inking above it.  That gives it a gradient effect.

I then matted this on Petal Pink cardstock.

I then stamped the sentiment from the So Sentimental Stamp Set in Versamark ink on Calypso Coral cardstock, sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder, and heat set it.  I cut it out using the coordinating Stitched So Sweetly Dies.

Underneath it I folded over some Petal Pink ribbon and then I adhered it all down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Painted Poppies A Little Something Card

Stampin’ Up!’s Designer Series Paper has always been a favorite of mine.

It makes card making really easy and let’s face it – the paper is beautiful!!

I put out a question on my Facebook page last weekend as to which combination of patterns to use from the Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper and the purple combination was the clear winner!

Today’s card starts off with Thick Whisper White cardstock.  I then took two patterns from the Peaceful Poppies DSP and matted it on Whisper White cardstock.

Next I used the Poppy Moments Dies to cut out a flower from Rich Razzleberry and Basic Black cardstock.  Next to it I used the Leaf Punch to cut out a few leaves from Old Olive cardstock.

I added a Rich Razzleberry banner underneath the DSP panel and stamped the sentiment form the Sending You Thoughts Stamp Set in Rich Razzleberry ink.

Enjoy!


Today’s card is part of this week’s new Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge.  It’s a great sketch with lots of layering, so be sure to play along with us this week!

Stampin’ Up! Honey Bee Quick and Simple Card

The Honey Bee Bundle was one that immediately caught my eye in the 2020 January-June Mini Catalog.

The bees are so cute and I think they can cover a wide range of occasions and work great for cards with lots of layers, as well as simple cards, such as today’s.

My card today starts off with Mango Melody cardstock which I cut 4-1/4″x 8-1/2″ and scored at 4-1/4″.

I cut a 4″x 4″ Whisper White panel and used the honeycomb die from the Detailed Bee Dies and cut through the Whisper White panel and Mango Melody card front.   I stamped the honeycomb from the Honey Bee Stamp Set in Crushed Curry ink and cut it out using the same die, which I adhered on the inside of the card.

I stamped the bee and stamp set in Memento Black.  I colored the bee in using Mango Melody Stampin’ Blends Markers and cut it out using the same dies.  I also used the same dies to cut out a couple of hearts from Basic Black cardstock.

Enjoy!
