Stampin’ Up! Lemon Zest Birthday

My card today was inspired by challenges at Freshly Made SketchesTGIF Challenges! (loosely, as this isn’t necessarily a masculine card, but a gender-neutral card),  and Color Throwdown this week.

My card starts off with Night of Navy cardstock which I dry embossed using the new Polka Dot Basics embossing folder.  I then cut out a scalloped circle using the Layering Circles Framelits from the Naturally Eclectic DSP and adhered it to the card.

I created the lemons using the Lemon Zest Bundle.  I stamped the whole lemon and piece of lemon in Lemon Lime Twist ink and cut them out using the coordinating punch and Layering Circles Framelits, cutting the piece of lemon in half.  I stamped the lemon leaves in Crumb Cake ink and used the punch to cut them out.

I added some Pool Party solid baker’s twine over the leaves for a little detail.  (Hard to see from the picture, but) I stamped on Pool Party cardstock the cut lemon image in Versamark ink and then stamped the sentiment over that in Night of Navy ink.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Birthday Delivery

My card today was inspired by the Stamp, Ink, Paper challenge this week.

My card today starts off with Pacific Point cardstock as its base.  I then took the cake image from the Birthday Delivery stamp set and stamped it all over the front of the card in Pacific Point ink.

I cut out the wolf image from the Birthday Memories DSP using the coordinating Birthday Friend framelits.

Pause:  Did you know the Birthday Delivery Bundle comes not only with the Birthday Delivery Stamp Set and Birthday Friends Framelits but also with the Birthday Memories DSP.  So fun!

I then cut out the banner using the framelits and I stamped the sentiment in Pacific Point ink over the banner.  I adhered the banner using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I then rubbed the Embossing Buddy over the left upper corner of the card (to prep for heat embossing).  I stamped the sentiment in Versamark ink and then sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder.  I then heated it up with the Heat Tool.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Celebration Time

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

My card is a clean and simple birthday card using the NEW and beautiful Celebration Time Bundle.

I love this bundle because it has really nice sentiments (and fonts) and the framelits are really fun!

My card starts off with Thick Very Vanilla cardstock.  I then took a pattern from the Bundle of Love NEW Designer Series Paper and matted it on some Gold foil sheet.

I then stamped the sentiment from the Celebration Time stamp set in Versamark ink, sprinkled it with Gold Embossing Powder, and heat embossed it.  I cut it out using the coordinating Celebration Thinlits from the bundle.

I cut out a circle using the Layering Circle Framelits to adhere behind the sentiment/cake and adhered it to the card.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Bike Ride

My card today was inspired by the challenge over at Fusion Card Challenge.

It uses the NEW Bike Ride Bundle.

This Bundle caught my eye right away in the new catalog.  I was a little intimidated by it.  Multiple stamping with almost each image, lots of images, and putting a bike together using different pieces.

It’s not half as bad as I thought.  Take your time.  Go one piece at a time.  And it’s well worth using.  The outcome is super cute!!

My card today starts off with Smoky Slate cardstock.  I took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and using a brayer and some Pool Party ink I colored the top of it a bit.  I didn’t want too much color, so I didn’t roll over it too many times.

To build my bike, I used the Bike Ride Bundle (stamp & matching framelits) and Pool Party, Smoky Slate, and Peekaboo Peach ink.  The basket is  stamped using Soft Suede ink (full strength for the outline and stamped off for the fill).

I took a pattern from the Coffee Break DSP to put at the bottom of the card and then stamped the sentiment in Smoky Slate ink using the Special Celebrations stamp set.

The Special Celebrations stamp set I think is going to be one I use a lot.  It has a saying for almost every occasion, as well as a coordinating message for the inside of the card.  I love the font of this sentiment in particular.

Enjoy!

Cool Treats Blue Goo Card

Today’s Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop is a sketch challenge.  Happy hopping.

Today’s card is one that I made for my son’s 9th birthday this past Tuesday.  When we get soft ice cream in the summer, he always gets blue goo ice cream so I thought I’d create it on his card.

My card starts off with Pacific Point cardstock.  I then took a panel of Sahara Sand and a smaller panel of Whisper White cardstock and lined them up to each other.  To make sure they stayed in place, I adhered a small piece of cardstock overlapping them.  I then dry embossed them using the new Oh My Stars embossing folder.  I removed the cardstock that was holding them together and adhered the embossed cardstock to the card.

I created my ice cream using the Cool Treats stamp set and matching Frozen Treats framelits.  I stamped just the swirl on some Whisper White cardstock for the ice cream in Pacific Point ink and used Sahara Sand cardstock for the cone.  I then cut out a Pacific Point circle using the Layering Circles Framelits to adhere my ice cream to.

Before adhering the circle to the card, I adhered a small rectangle of Pacific Point cardstock on the Sahara Sand embossed cardstock.  I stamped my sentiment in Pacific Point ink and adhered it using Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Stylized Birthday

Today’s blog hop is a color challenge.  Happy hopping!

My card today starts off with Rich Razzleberry cardstock.  I then took the two presents from the Weather Together stamp set and stamped them across a panel of Whisper White cardstock in Old Olive, Rich Razzleberry, and Pool Party ink.

Next I cut out three squares using the Stitched Framelits.  On the largest one, Pool Party, I stamped in Versamark the Happy Birthday from the Stylized Birthday stamp.  I sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder and heat embossed it.

Lastly, I stamped two more presents (Pool Party, Old Olive) on a separate piece of Whisper White and fussy cut them out.  I adhered the one with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Happy Birthday – Two Ways

This past week we celebrated both my husband’s birthday and mom’s birthday, which happen to fall the same day.

For their birthdays I thought I’d create one birthday card and make it two ways, one feminine and one masculine (or neutral).

Here are the two birthday cards:

For my mom’s card, I used Emerald Envy as the base.  I specifically picked this color because Emerald is the birthstone in May.  I then took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and stamped flowers in two corners.  I used the Penned & Painted stamp set and Watermelon Wonder (full strength and stamped off for lighter color) and Mint Macaron (full strength and stamped off for lighter color).

Next I used the Large Letters framelits to cut out the “B-Day” in Watermelon Wonder cardstock.  I straightened out the “Happy” from the Banners for You stamp set and stamped it in Emerald Envy ink.  I added a few rhinestones to finish off the card.

For my husband’s card, I started out with Basic Gray cardstock.  I used the Balloon Adventures stamp set and Old Olive and Smoky Slate ink to stamp the balloons in either corner.

The “B-Day” was cut out using Old Olive cardstock this time and the “Happy” this time was stamped in Smoky Slate ink.

Enjoy!
