Stampin’ Up! Witty-Cisms Taco Birthday Card

My youngest daughter just turned 10 this past week.

With my kids’ birthdays, I always decorate the house (in whatever their favorite colors are at the time) and I also make their birthday card to coordinate with it.

My youngest’s favorite colors right now are black and red and she is obsessed with tacos!  So I knew the Witty-Cisms Stamp Set would be perfect for her card.

But I also knew I wanted to stamp the taco a bunch of times and in order to make it easier and quicker (as opposed to using the washi tape technique) I decided to cut up the solid stamp into three pieces.

My card starts off with Thick Whisper White cardstock.

Next I took a panel of Real Red cardstock and stamped the taco all over the front of it in Real Red ink.  I then matted this on Basic Black cardstock.

I stamped the taco three times in Memento Black ink on Whisper White cardstock and colored it in using Mango Melody, Light Soft Suede, and Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends Markers.

I used the Layering Circle Dies to cut out Basic Black scalloped circles and to cut out the tacos.

Lastly, I stamped the sentiments from the Witty-Cisms Stamp Set in Memento Black ink.

Enjoy!

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

My card today starts off with Calypso Coral cardstock which I embossed using the new Coastal Weave Embossing Folder (available Jan 3).

This is a free stamp set in the 2020 Sale-A-Bration Catalog with an order of $50+ beginning Jan 3rd!

I used Pool Party (sky), Granny Apple Green (ground), and Crumb Cake (meerkat) Stampin’ Blends Markers to color the images in.  I then matted it on Basic Black cardstock.

Lastly I stamped the sentiment from The Gang’s All Meer Stamp Set in Versamark ink on Basic Black cardstock, sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder, and heat set it.  I adhered this down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin’ Up! Poppy Moments Dies Card

Last week I had my monthly stamp class.

I promised to use all new product from the 2020 Jan-June Mini Catalog and I included today’s card for the class.

It uses the new Poppy Moments Dies.  The dies have all the components to make beautiful poppy flowers and leaves made just with cardstock.

These dies are available beginning Jan 3 and are bundled with the Peaceful Moments Stamp Set.

My card starts with Calypso Coral cardstock.  I then matted a piece of Whisper White cardstock on more Whisper White cardstock.  When I don’t want to add an extra color, I like matting white just on white.

I first used Calypso Coral and Grapefruit Grove cardstock to make the poppies.

I used Old Olive and Mossy Meadow cardstock to create the leaves.  I then stamped the sentiment from the Peaceful Moments Stamp Set in Calypso Coral ink.

Enjoy!


New items have been added to the clearance rack and there are a TON!

Not only that, but there’s a wide variety of product available from embossing folders to dies to ribbon and much, much more.  Product is available while supplies last so don’t wait!

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.

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.

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!
