Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Moments Birthday Card

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

My card starts off with Bermuda Bay cardstock.  I cut out a pattern from the Birthday Bonanza Designer Series Paper and matted it on Whisper White cardstock to adhere to the bottom of the card.

I took another pattern and used the Stitched Rectangles Dies to cut it out and then matted it on Grapefruit Grove cardstock.

I then stamped the sentiment from the Peaceful Moments Stamp Set in Bermuda Bay ink on Whisper White cardstock and cut it out using the Stitched Nested Labels Dies.

Lastly I added a Bermuda Bay bow next to the sentiment.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! By The Dock Birthday Card

This past weekend I reached out on Facebook for advice on how to color in the By The Dock images for today’s card.

There wasn’t a clear winner, so I decided to go in a different direction…
Directly stamp on watercolor paper and use an Aqua Painter to color them in.

My card starts off with Crumb Cake cardstock.  Next I took a panel of Balmy Blue cardstock and embossed it using the Corrugated Embossing Folder.

I then took a panel of Watercolor Paper and stamped the images from the By The Dock Stamp Set in Stazon Black ink.  I used an Aqua Painter to color in the images – Soft Suede for the dock, Crumb Cake for the boat, and very subtle Balmy Blue around them.

I then matted this on Soft Suede cardstock.

I stamped the sentiment from the By The Dock Stamp Set in Versamark ink on Soft Suede cardstock, sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder, and heat set it.  I cut it out using the Stitched Rectangles Dies.  I adhered this down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Under My Umbrella Video Tutorial

A couple of weeks ago I created this card using the Under My Umbrella and it was definitely one of my all time favorites to make.

So for my live tutorial last week, I decided to take inspiration from it and create a version of it.

It uses the same colors and the Under My Umbrella Bundle, but arranges the images differently and adds more flowers.

I’ll be back tonight at 7:30 pm EST for another live tutorial.  I hope you’ll join me.  If you catch it live and leave a comment, you may just receive the card for free!

If you ever miss a tutorial, you can check them out on my YouTube channel.

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!
