Stampin’ Up! Special Celebrations

Today’s card is inspired by this week’s Global Design Project challenge.

My card today starts with Soft Sky cardstock.  I then took a pattern from the Bundle of Love DSP and matted it on Gold Foil.

I stamped the sentiment from the Special Celebrations stamp set in Soft Sky ink on Very Vanilla cardstock and then matted it on Gold Foil.

I added a Gold Metallic-Edge bow just under the sentiment.  I then stamped the little safety pin from the Better Together in Versamark ink, sprinkled it with Gold Embossing Powder, and heat embossed it.  I fussy cut it out and adhered it underneath the ribbon.

Enjoy!

SNEAK PEEK Merry Café

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

My card today uses a bit of brand new product from the Holiday Catalog, as well as product that is currently in the Annual Catalog.

Specifically, from the Holiday Catalog I used the Merry Café Stamp Set which coordinates beautifully with the Coffee Café Bundle.

My card uses Soft Sky cardstock as its base and layered it with a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock.  I cut a banner of Gold cardstock which I layered over that.

First I took a panel of Blushing Bride cardstock and matted it on Very Vanilla cardstock.  On the bottom I adhered behind it two banners of patterns from the Bundle of Love Designer Series Paper.

I used the Coffee Café Bundle to create my coffee cup using the Bundle of Love Designer Series Paper.  The lid and sentiment comes from the NEW Merry Café stamp set which I stamped in Soft Sky ink.  I picked this sentiment, thinking this card would be sweet for someone expecting a new baby.  I layered underneath the coffee cup some Soft Sky Ribbon and Mini Gold Sequins.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Bundle of Love DSP

Today’s card was inspired by this week’s TGIF Challenges! sketch challenge.

I made two baby cards to share today.  I figured if you make one, you might as well make two!

The cards start off with Very Vanilla cardstock as their base which I embossed using the Hexagons Dynamic Embossing Folder.

I then cut out three banners, one solid Soft Sky, one showing the Soft Sky pattern from the Bundle of Love DSP, and the other showing the gold pattern from the Bundle of Love DSP.

I wound around some Very Vanilla Solid Baker’s Twine and tied a knot around it using Soft Sky ribbon.  I then tied a ribbon with the Baker’s Twine around the Soft Sky ribbon.

For both cards, I stamped the sentiment in Versamark ink using the Special Celebrations stamp set and heat embossed it in Gold Embossing Powder.  I cut it out using the Layering Ovals Framelits and matted it on some Gold Foil cardstock.

For the girl card, I did everything the same, but swapped out the cardstock for the Blushing Bride side of the DSP and the ribbon for Blushing Bride ribbon.

Enjoy!

NEW Fresh Florals DSP

Today’s card was inspired by this week’s challenge over at The Paper Players.

My card today features the NEW Powder Pink In-Color.  It starts off with Powder Pink cardstock as its base.  I took two patterns from the Fresh Florals DSP and matted them on Whisper White cardstock and layered them on my card.

I used the Swirly Bird Bundle to punch out the Sahara Sand cutout “swirl.”  I stamped the bird, eggs, and nest using Sahara Sand, Smoky Slate, and Soft Sky ink.

I stamped the sentiment in Sahara Sand ink from the Better Together stamp set and matted it on Powder Pink cardstock.

Enjoy!

Foxy Friends Baby Card

My card today starts off with Pool Party cardstock.  I then cut a panel of Whisper White cardstock which would eventually layer over that.  I used the Foxy Friends Bundle, specifically the stamp set, to stamp the round vine in Pool Party ink to create a “circle” (they actually have a gap between where they’d meet which was hidden by the DSP).  Over that I adhered two patterns from the A Little Foxy DSP.

Next I created my fox first stamping him in Calypso Coral ink and cutting him out using the coordinating punch from the bundle.  I stamped the eyes and nose in Memento Black ink.

Lastly, I stamped the sentiment from the Sentiment Suite stamp set in Pool Party ink and adhered it using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Enjoy!

My card today was inspired by the challenge this week at Freshly Made Sketches.

Moon Baby – Twinkle, Twinkle Card

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

My card today starts off with Bermuda Bay cardstock.  I then used two patterns from the Cupcakes & Carousels DSP to layer over the Bermuda Bay.  In the middle of the card, overlapping both patterns, I stamped in Early Espresso ink the star image from the Moon Baby stamp set.

Using the Stitched Framelits and Bermuda Bay cardstock, I cut out a square and layered it to the left of the card.  I stamped the baby image from the Moon Baby stamp set in Archival Black ink.  I colored it in using a Blender Pen and So Saffron, Bermuda Bay, Early Espresso, and Sahara Sand ink.  Once colored in, I fussy cut it out using a Paper Snips and adhered it over the stitched square.

Using the washi tape technique, I stamped my sentiment on a strip of Very Vanilla cardstock and adhered it to the card (the end using Stampin’ Dimensionals).

Enjoy!

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!

gdp074

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.

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!
