Stampin’ Up! Sale-A-Bration Sneak Peek – Happy Birthday to You Card

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

My card today starts off with Thick Whisper White cardstock.  I then stamped the sentiment from the Happy Birthday To You Stamp Set in Flirty Flamingo ink.

Next I took a Soft Sea Foam pattern from the Subtles Designer Series Paper and matted it on Whisper White cardstock.

I stamped the cake from the Happy Birthday To You Stamp Set in Memento Black ink on Whisper White cardstock.  I used Petal Pink (cake), Flirty Flamingo (flowers), Soft Sea Foam (leaves), and Crumb Cake (stand) Stampin’ Blends Markers to color it in.  I fussy cut it out and adhered it down Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I used the Christmas Cardinal Dies to cut out two “flourishes” from Silver Foil and adhered them behind the cake.  Lastly I added a few rhinestones around the cake as well.

Enjoy!

SNEAK PEEK Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tulips Birthday Card

Sigh…new product.

New product is always so inspiring to use.  Today I’m using the new (available Jan 3) Timeless Tulips stamp set.

Right now you have a chance to earn this stamp set FOR FREE before it’s even available to all demonstrators!!!  All details are at the bottom of this post.

My card starts off with Petal Pink cardstock.  I then took a narrow panel of Vellum and embossed it using the Lace Embossing Folder.

I then took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and stamped the flowers from the Timeless Tulips stamp set in Petal Pink ink and the stems and leaves in Old Olive ink.  Because this is a photopolymer stamp set, you can easily manipulate the stems to tilt in different directions.  I then matted this on Whisper White cardstock.

Next I wrapped around a Petal Pink ribbon in a knot and added a few pearls around the bottom.  Lastly, I stamped the sentiment in Old Olive ink.

Enjoy!


Today’s card was inspired by this week’s TGIF Challenge.


Any order of $50+ placed between November 20-27 enters you in the running to receive the Timeless Tulips Stamp Set and card project.

Stampin’ Up! Ride With Me Birthday Card

I had a fun filled weekend away filled with lots of crafting and now I’m gearing up for another weekend away, this time for Stampin’ Up!’s OnStage event.

We’ll get to preview the new 2019 Occasions Catalog, even order from it.  We’ll also get some training and have a chance to make some Make and Takes.

Be sure to “like” my Facebook page as I’ll be posting lots of sneak peeks!

My card starts off with Balmy Blue cardstock which I embossed using the Subtle Embossing Folder.

I next stamped the truck and balloons from the Ride With Me Stamp Set in Memento Black ink on Whisper White cardstock.  I then cut it out using the Stitched Nested Dies.  I colored it in using Real Red (truck), Smoky Slate (tires), Balmy Blue, Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight, and Call Me Clover (balloons) Stampin’ Blends Markers.

Lastly I stamped the sentiment from the Ride With Me Stamp Set in Versamark ink on Basic Black ink in Versamark ink.  I sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder and heat set it.  I adhered it down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Birthday Card Beautiful Friendship

Every week for the month of October I’ve been giving my team a sketch and color challenge.  They can use them individually or in the same project.

I took a break from Christmas cards today and used the challenges to make a birthday card.

My card starts off with Terracotta Tile cardstock, on which I adhered a Terracotta Tile pattern from the 2019-2021 In-Color Designer Series Paper.

I next took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and stamped the flowers from the Beautiful Friendship Stamp Set in Terracotta Tile ink and leaves in Mint Macaron.  I then matted this on Mint Macaron cardstock.

Lastly I stamped the sentiment in parts so that it would fit on a long banner in Versamark ink, sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder, and heat set it.  In order to stamp the sentiment in parts, I covered the part I wasn’t stamping with washi tape, inked up the stamp, removed the tape, and stamped it down.  I did this until I had the full sentiment.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Gather Together Card

Last Saturday was World Card Making Day.

The team and I had fun going live all throughout the day with different presentations.  Today’s card is the one I shared.

It features the Gather Together Bundle and what I love (and it’s hard to see in the pictures) is the hint of gold ink on the leaves.  Be sure to watch the video below as you can see it better on video and I also show I got this effect.

It was really fun to see all our presentations and if interested, you can still join the group to see the different videos.

The design for today’s card was inspired by a color and sketch challenge I gave my team.  For the month of October, each week I’m giving them a new challenge.  The idea is to jumpstart creativity and even challenge them to try new things…and of course, there’ll be prizes at the end.  🙂

To see how I created today’s card, check out the video below:

Stampin’ Up! Lots of Fussy Cutting Birthday Card

Out of all the new Designer Series Paper from the 2019 Holiday Catalog, I think my favorite pattern comes from the Come to Gather DSP…

…the beautiful wood grain pattern.

So I let it take front and center on my card today with some fussy cutting from the Bird Ballad DSP.

Today’s card is part of the new challenge over at Hand Stamped Sentiments.  It’s a fun sketch, so be sure to play along!

My card starts off with Petal Pink cardstock which I covered with the wood grain pattern from the Come to Gather DSP and I used the Stitched Nested Labels Dies to cut out a Petal Pink banner.

I took the Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper and fussy cut out one of the bird images, as well as three floral images to adhere next to it.

**The great thing about this paper…it’s included in our Buy 3, Get 1 Free Select Designer Series Paper sale right now!!!  More details below.

Lastly I stamped the sentiment from the Itty Bitty Birthdays Stamp Set in Pool Party ink.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Rooted in Nature Birthday Card

If you’re ever having a hard time putting colors together for a card, my go-to is to look at colors in Designer Series Paper.

On the back of all the Designer Series Paper, Stampin’ Up! always makes note of the coordinating colors in the pack.  The inspiration for my card today came from retired Designer Series Paper from last year.

My card starts off with Blackberry Bliss cardstock which I embossed using the Tin Tile Embossing Folder.

I then took a panel of Whisper White cardstock  and stamped the leaves from the Rooted in Nature stamp set in Blackberry Bliss and Mint Macaron ink.

I used the Nature’s Roots Dies and Mint Macaron to cut and emboss two leaves.  Lastly, I stamped the sentiment from the Itty Bitty Birthdays in Versamark ink, sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder, and heat set it.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! NEW Harvest Hellos Card

The 2019 Holiday Catalog is pretty amazing!!!

One of the perks of being a demo is being able to order from it early.  Today’s card uses one of the new bundles, Harvest Hellos.

This is a great bundle that pairs a stamp set with a punch.  They both double for apples and pumpkins.

My card starts off with Poppy Parade cardstock.  I took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and stamped the apple in Memento Black ink on the top and the seeds around it.  I stamped the cut apple on a separate piece of Whisper White cardstock.

I used Poppy Parade (apples), Petal Pink (cut apple), Granny Apple Green (leaf), Crumb Cake (stem), Basic Black (seeds) Stampin’ Blends Markers to color them in.  I used the Apple Builder Punch to cut the sliced apple out.

On the bottom of the card I adhered a Poppy Parade pattern of Designer Series Paper.  I wrapped around a Linen Thread bow around it.

I stamped the sentiment from the Itty Bitty Birthdays Stamp Set in Versamark ink on Basic Black cardstock.  I sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder and heat set it.

Enjoy!


Today’s card was inspired by this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge.
