Happy Celebrations Birthday

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

My card starts off with Emerald Envy cardstock as the base.  I used one of the Happy images from the Happy Celebrations stamp set and stamped it all along the front of the card in Emerald Envy ink.

I layered a pattern from the Party Animal DSP over some Whisper White cardstock and then wrapped some Emerald Envy Taffeta ribbon around it twice.

I stamped the “splotch” image from the Happy Celebrations stamp set in Crumb Cake (stamping off first) on some Whisper White cardstock.  Over that I stamped the happy sentiment in Emerald Envy ink.  I trimmed it down and mounted it on Crumb Cake cardstock and adhered it using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I stamped the rest of the sentiment in Crushed Curry ink on Whisper White cardstock and trimmed it down before adhering it to the card.

Enjoy!

Reverse Words – Birthday

Today’s card uses one of the NEW Sale-a-bration items:  Reverse Words Stamp Set!!  It comes with two phrases:  Hooray and Cheers.  I’m using Hooray today.

I’m also using an idea from Brian King – stamping more words within the smudge – which I thought adds a great touch!

My card uses Watermelon Wonder cardstock as its base.  I took a pattern from the Carried Away DSP and matted it on Whisper White cardstock and adhered it to the card.

reverse-words-stamp-it-up-with-jaimie

I took a smaller panel of Whisper White cardstock and matted it on some Watermelon Wonder cardstock and then stamped the “Hooray” in Mint Macaron ink.  I then stamped the “It’s Your Day” in Night of Navy ink from the Confetti Celebration Stamp Set.

reverse-words-stamp-it-up-with-jaimie-stampin-up

Lastly I created two balloons using Mint Macaron and Watermelon Wonder cardstock and the Balloon Bouquet Punch (smaller of the two balloons).  I tied some Night of Navy Baker’s Twine to the bottom of each balloon and then knotted the string underneath the sentiment.  I adhered the one balloon using a Stampin’ Dimensional.

Enjoy!

16473027_10212252230409234_8203946034113262811_n

My card today starts off with Pacific Point cardstock as its base.  I then created a little present using a pattern from the Party Animal DSP which I used the Corner Punch to curve two of the corners.  I used Emerald Envy Taffeta Ribbon to wrap around it horizontally and vertically to make it more “present like.”

I cut out a Crushed Curry bow using the Balloon Adventures Bundle and added a Pacific Point enamel dot.  I tied an Emerald Envy Baker’s Twine bow and tied the party hat embellishment in it.

balloon-adventures-stamp-it-up-with-jaimie

I stamped the sentiment in Versamark Ink on Emerald Envy cardstock and sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder and then set it with the Heat Tool.  I cut it out and the Pacific Point cardstock behind it using the Layering Oval Framelits.

balloon-adventures-stamp-it-up-with-jaimie-stampin-up

Lastly I used the Balloon Celebrations stamp set to stamp the dots in the coordinating color (i.e., Crushed Curry ink on Crushed Curry cardstock) on each of the balloons and cut them out using the Balloon Bouquet Punch.  I attached the Crushed Curry balloon using a Stampin’ Dimensional.

Enjoy!

Balloon Adventures Part 2

Yesterday was our weekly Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop.  It was a color challenge and I loved it so much, I decided to make two cards.  If you missed yesterday’s card, you can see it here.

My card today uses Pool Party cardstock as its base on which I layered a piece of Whisper White cardstock.

Before I go any further, I just want to say that one of the reasons why I love today’s card is that it’s very versatile and uses hardly any product at all.  You could switch out the colors to make it more feminine or juvenile.  You could turn the sentiment so it’s not on an angle.  The possibilities are endless.

balloon-adventures-stamp-it-up-with-jaimiNext I created my sentiment by stamping it in Pool Party ink from the Balloon Adventures set.  I then angled it on my card, used a pencil to mark where it needed to be cut, and cut it on the angle.  I added a Pool Party Enamel Heart (to be honest) to cover a smudge.  Isn’t that what embellishments are for anyways?! 🙂

balloon-adventures-stamp-it-up-with-jaimie-stampin-up

I placed the sentiment on my card and drew a line on either side so I knew how low and far up I needed to stamp the balloons.  Using Pool Party, Watermelon Wonder, and Crumb Cake ink, I stamped the various balloons from the Balloon Adventures stamp set in different heights around the card.

I matted the sentiment on a panel of Watermelon Wonder cardstock and adhered it over the balloons.

Enjoy!

A little tease…I loved these colors so much that I made two cards.  Come back tomorrow to see the second card I made using this color combination.

My card today uses Pool Party cardstock as its base.  I then cut out a panel of Crumb Cake cardstock and used the big framelit from the Balloon Adventures Bundle to cut out the balloon image.  Before adhering it to the Pool Party cardstock, I cut out a piece of the Sending Love Glassine Sheet to put behind it.

balloon-celebrations-stamp-it-up-with-jaimie

I then made my balloons using Whisper White, Pool Party, and Watermelon Wonder cardstock and the Balloon Pop-Up Framelits.  I adhered the middle balloon using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

balloon-celebrations-stamp-it-up-with-jaimie-stampin-up

I stamped the banner and sentiment in Watermelon Wonder Ink using the Balloon Adventures stamp set.  I fussy cut it out and adhered it using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Lastly I cut out a bow in Whisper White cardstock and adhered it over the cut out bow.

My card uses Thick Whisper White cardstock for its base which I layered with a pattern from the Tasty Treats DSP.  I then too another pattern and ran it down the right side of my card.

cool-treats-stamp-it-up-with-jaimie

Next I created my yummy sundae.  I took the “cone” pattern from the Tasty Treats DSP and cut out the bowl for my sundae (I imagine it’s a waffle cone) using the Frozen Treats Framelits.  I cut out three scoops of “ice cream” using Pool Party, Watermelon Wonder, and Peekaboo Peach cardstock, stamping the “highlight” in Versamark ink on each using the Cool Treats Stamp set.  I cut out some syrup using Chocolate Chip cardstock and stamped the cherry first using Real Red and Chocolate Chip ink and then cut it out with the coordinating framelit.  I also cut out a spoon using Silver Foil.

cool-treats-stamp-it-up-with-jaimie-stampin-up

For my layering in the center of the card, I first started with a piece of Watermelon Wonder Mini Striped Ribbon.  I cut out an oval and a coordinating scalloped oval using the Layering Oval Framelits and then adhered the sundae over it.  Lastly, I stamped the sentiment in Watermelon Wonder ink and snipped the end in a banner.

Enjoy!

Lift Me Up Birthday

For today’s card, I used one of my favorite bundles from the Occasions Catalog – the Lift Me Up Bundle!

I used Mint Macaron cardstock as the base to my card which I layered with a pattern from the Carried Away (free during Sale-a-bration) DSP which was matted on Peekaboo Peach cardstock.

lift-me-up-stamp-it-up-with-jaimie

I matted the cloud pattern from the Carried Away DSP on Whisper White cardstock and adhered it to the left corner of the card.  Next I created my hot air balloon using Night of Navy and Peekaboo Peach cardstock and adhered it to the card using Stampin’ dimensionals.

lift-me-up-stamp-it-up-with-jaimie-stampin-up

I took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and stamped the sentiment in Night of Navy and some clouds (stamped off first in Mint Macaron) all around it.  I matted it on Mint Macaron cardstock before adhering it to the card.
