Any Occasion – It’s a Girl Card

Today’s card is inspired by challenges over at TGIF and Freshly Made Sketches.

I used Smoky Slate cardstock to start off my card which I layered with Whisper White cardstock.  I then cut out two banners, one slightly bigger in Pink Pirouette cardstock and the other using So Saffron cardstock.

I then cut a panel using a pattern from the A Little Foxy DSP and layered a larger Whisper White panel over that.  I stamped the bunny and chick images from the Basket Bunch stamp set first in Memento Black ink.  I then colored them in using a Blender Pen and So Saffron, Smoky Slate, and Pink Pirouette ink.

(Because I stamped the bunny slightly higher than the chicks, I added a shadow underneath them so the bunny looked like he was jumping.)

Next I took the Any Occasion stamp set and created the banner using Smoky Slate and Pink Pirouette ink.

Enjoy!

Baby Boy Congrats

This week’s Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop is a color challenge.  I took some liberty with this challenging – using only a bit of the Blushing Bride. 😉

This card is made for my cousin and his wife who just had a baby boy.

My card starts off with Very Vanilla cardstock.  I cut a piece of Soft Sky cardstock and dry embossed it using the Hexagon Dynamic embossing folder.  I tied some Very Vanilla ribbon round the bottom of the card in a knot.

Pause for a moment – This picture doesn’t do the embossing justice, no picture does.  It is far more impressive in person that I imagined.  It-is-amazing!

I stamped the tools in Sahara Sand ink on Sahara Sand cardstock and cut them out using the Nailed It Bundle.

I stamped the sentiment from the Suite Sayings stamp set in Soft Sky ink and added a Blushing Bride enamel heart.

Enjoy!

My card uses Blushing Bride as its base which I dry embossed using the Sparkle TIEF.  I cut out a 2″ strip of a pattern from the Falling In Love DSP which I cut the end of using the Triple Banner Punch.  I tied a Linen Thread ribbon around it.  Before adhering it, I placed a Very Vanilla Lace Doily underneath it.

Next I stamped the carriage from the Something for Baby Stamp Set in Blushing Bride ink and cut it out using the coordinating Baby’s First Framelits.  I adhered the carriage using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Fox Peek-A-Boo

This week’s challenge is a color challenge.  I hope you enjoy hopping around to see what everyone created!

14067553_10210533918092500_3655896642523099733_nThese three colors are used in the A Little Foxy DSP so I knew right away I wanted to use that paper and the cute Foxy Friends Bundle.

141637g

My card starts off with Pool Party cardstock as its base.  First things first I created my little fox.  I used the Foxy Friends stamp set with Calypso Coral ink and Memento Black and the coordinating Fox Builder Punch to cut it out.

foxy-friends-stamp-it-up-with-jaimie

Because of the sentiment I used I wanted to have the fox sort of peeking out behind something.  I took one of the patterns from the A Little Foxy DSP (which you may not recognize because the pattern is meant to be diagonal) and I cut out two sized squares using the Stitched Framelits.  I adhered the fox behind the one and tilted his head to the one side.

foxy-friends-stamp-it-up-with-jaimie-stampin-up

I fussy cut out one of the banners from the A Little Foxy DSP to add to the one corner and added a Calypso Coral enamel dot to the one end.  The sentiment is from the Suite Sayings Stamp Set (Calypso Coral) and I added a few more enamel dots above it.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Baby’s First

Today’s card share is a CASE card from the challenge over at Global Design Project this week.  I was really inspired by this card and I hope it reflects in my card today.

challenge-case-teneale-williams

My card starts with Marina Mist as its base and is layered with Whisper White.  I then used a piece of Pear Pizzazz to layer over the left side of the card.  I dry embossed it using the Sparkle Textured Embossing Folder.

babys-first-stamp-it-up-with-jaimie

I cut out two balloons using the Balloon Bouquet Punch and used the same embossing folder to make them 3D.  I stamped the baby carriage from the Something for Baby stamp set in Marina Mist and cut it out using the coordinating Baby’s First Framelits.

Finally, I used the White Baker’s Twine to create the balloon strings and tied a bow to the baby carriage.  I then used the Flourishing Phrases stamp set in Pear Pizzazz to stamp the sentiment.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Foxy Friends

I really did put up a fight.  I thought, I don’t need the Foxy Friends Stamp Set.  But, I kept seeing all these cute cards and the tons of different animals you can make using this bundle and well, I’m just not that strong.  I caved and treated myself to the Foxy Friends Bundle!!!

My card uses Calypso Coral, Pool Party, and Smoky Slate as its colors.  I first layered a pattern from the A Little Foxy DSP over Smoky Slate and adhered it to the right of my card.  I stamped the sentiment in Smoky Slate on some Whisper White to place over it.

foxy-friends-stamp-it-up-with-jaimie

I then created the three circles to the left using the Layering Circles framelits.

foxy-friends-stamp-it-up-with-jaimie-stampin-up

I stamped the word bubble in Basic Black for the top circle and trimmed a pattern from the A Little Foxy DSP for the banner in the bottom circle.  For the fox, I stamped him and cut him out using the coordinating punch.

Last Blast of Summer Blog Hop

13880341_10210337574104023_5157038842033234445_n Welcome to this month’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop.  This month our theme is the Last Blast of Summer.  I really had to think about this.  I’m in Upstate New York and believe it or not in August we start to have some cooler nights.  Hints of fall start to poke through and you can almost feel it in the air.

So here’s my card…

Swirly Bird - Stamp It Up With Jaimie

With the cooler days comes sweet breezes, time gazing at the blue sky and sweet clouds, trying to make out different shapes and objects.  Hence the clouds.

My card starts with Pool Party and is then layered with vellum.  I used the Balloon Celebration Stamp Set to create my clouds.  Because this stamp set is photopolymer, when I inked them up and applied them to the vellum, they almost slid a little bit which I kind of liked.  The lines weren’t crisp, which, is perfectly like a cloud.

Swirly Bird - Stampin Up - Stamp It Up With Jaimie

To create my kites I used the Swirly Bird Stamp Set.  I stamped them in Peekaboo Peach, Crumb Cake, and Wild Wasabi.  I fussy cut them out, but before adhering them, I stamped some kite tails and some bows in Chocolate Chip.

Swirly Bird - Stamp It Up With Jaimie - Stampin Up

Lastly, I stamped my sentiment from the Suite Sayings Stamp Set in Pool Party.

Yes, I used a total of three different stamp sets for this card – sometimes one (or even two) just don’t cut it.

Enjoy!
