Stampin’ Up! Sweetest Thing – Sweet Card

The very first thing I ever bought from Stampin’ Up! was their Designer Series Paper.

I loved all the designs, high quality product, and how everything was color coordinated.

And something they match Designer Series Paper to framelits that cut images out – now that’s pure brilliance!

My card today starts off with Gorgeous Grape cardstock.  I then took a panel of Pool Party cardstock and embossed it using the Softly Falling Embossing Folder and matted it on Whisper White cardstock.

Next I used the new More Than Words Stamp Set (part of the newly released Sale-A-Bration coordinating product) and stamped the sentiment in Gorgeous Grape ink.

I adhered over that a pattern from the How Sweet It Is Designer Series Paper.  I took another pattern and used the Jar of Sweets Framelits to cut out the jar of goodies, adhering the one down with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

This paper combined with the framelits make this card easy peasy!

Enjoy!


Today’s card was inspired by this week’s Global Design Project challenge.

Stampin’ Up! Birthday Card

This is what I call a smorgasbord of a card.
I literally uses a little of this and a little of that.

I designed this card for a specific friend in mind and tried to tailor it to her.  She loves butterflies, the color hot pink, bling, and flowers.

Ironically enough I (unintentionally) basically did the same color combination as this card here.

My card starts off with Coastal Cabana cardstock which I embossed using the Petal Pair Embossing Folder.

Next I used the Rectangle Stitched Framelits and cut out two patterns from the Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper, layering one of the other.

Next I stamped the sentiment from the Picture Perfect Birthday Stamp Set in Lovely Lipstick ink on Whisper White cardstock and cut it out using the Stitched Shapes Framelits.  I cut out a scalloped circle from Lovely Lipstick Foil Sheet using the Layering Circle Framelits.

Next I used the Dark and Light Lovely Lipstick Stampin’ Blends Markers and colored in two butterflies from the Botanical Butterfly DSP and fussy cut them out.  I adhered them down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Stitched All Around Birthday Card

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

Tomorrow is my baby girl’s birthday.  She’s turning 9!

I always decorate the house with balloons and streamers the night before while they’re sleeping so they wake up to it.  I always do it in “their colors” and make a coordinating card.

Well, this year my daughter has announced she likes black and purple.

Be sure to head over and like my Facebook page as I’ll post pictures tomorrow of the decorations.

My card for her 9th birthday starts off with Highland Heather cardstock.  I then took a panel of Gorgeous Grape cardstock and embossed it with the Dot To Dot embossing folder.  I matted it on Basic Black cardstock.

Next I used the Stitched All Around Bundle to cut out the beautifully stitched die cut from Whisper White cardstock and stamped the sentiment in Gorgeous Grape ink.

I wound some Black Trim behind the sentiment and adhered everything down using Stampin Dimensionals.
