Soar Above the Rest – Congrats

My card today was inspired by challenges at Sunday Stamps and The Paper Players Challenge.

pp333 ssc147

I used So Saffron cardstock as the base to my card today.  I used a pattern from the Cupcakes & Carousels DSP matted on Bermuda Bay cardstock to layer over the base.

cupcakes-carousels-stamp-it-up-with-jaimie-stampin-up

I stamped three balloons from the Lift Me Up Bundle each on its coordinating paper (i.e., Calypso Coral ink on Calypso Coral cardstock) and cut them out with the framelits from the bundle. I adhered the larger balloon with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

cupcakes-carousels-stamp-it-up-with-jaimie

I stamped the sentiment using Calypso Coral ink on So Saffron cardstock and adhered a smaller Calypso Coral banner behind it and adhered it using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Rhinestones here and there on the card to finish it off.

Enjoy!

Balloon Adventures – Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

15822762_10211923272945503_223384966683691578_n

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

15726580_10211887781018227_8575702416860075941_n

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.

Enjoy!

Sweet As You – Cool Treats Card

15822762_10211923272945503_223384966683691578_n

Today’s Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop is a sketch challenge.  I hope you enjoy hopping around to see what everyone created.

15747473_10211887779018177_6692209639382763805_n

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.

Enjoy!

Tasty Treats Birthday Card

15822762_10211923272945503_223384966683691578_n

This week our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop is bringing you a sketch challenge.

15781260_10211887768817922_3380700512874558808_n

The Tasty Treats Bundle has been burning a hole in my…craft room.  It caught my eye the very first time I looked through the Occasions Catalog!  I knew I wanted to somehow make it work for this sketch.

My card uses Chocolate Chip cardstock as its base and I used two patterns from the Tasty Treats DSP to layer over that.  I cut out a square of Peekaboo Peach cardstock and stamped the sprinkles on it in Peekaboo Peach.

tasty-treats-stamp-it-up-with-jaimie

I then created my ice cream cone using one of the ice cream cones in the DSP as my guide. I used the “cone-like” pattern from the Tasty Treats DSP to cut out my cone and cut out three colors of ice cream – Watermelon Wonder, Pear Pizzazz, and Pool Party – using the Frozen Treats Thinlits to layer over that.  On it I adhered the cutout of the chocolate using, but of course, Chocolate Chip cardstock.  And for my favorite part of an ice cream cone – the sprinkles – I used the sprinkle thinlit and cut out sprinkles in Watermelon Wonder and Peekaboo Peach.  I always feel a little sad when I’ve eaten all the sprinkles.  I always thought the ratio of sprinkles to ice cream should be higher.

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

I stamped the sentiment from the Cool Treats stamp set in Pool Party on Whisper White cardstock.  I placed some Pool Party ribbon over the seam between the two patterns of DSP and I added a bow at the end of the sentiment.

Enjoy!

So In Love – Celebrate Card

Today’s card was inspired by the challenges over at Stamp, Ink, Paper and Global Design Project.

gdp070 sip-81-color-challenge-1024x962

Today I’m bringing you a simple CAS (clean and simple) card.  My card uses Basic Black cardstock as its base.  I used the sentiment from the So In Love Stamp Set which I stamped in Versamark ink and heat embossed using white embossing powder.

so-in-love-stamp-it-up-with-jaimie

I cut out the detail using Whisper White cardstock and the So Detailed Thinlits Dies.  I stamped the little center detail and “Enjoy” using Real Red ink.

Lastly, I tied a ribbon around the card using the Real Red Ribbon from the Sending Love Ribbon Combo Pack and added a Real Red Enamel Heart.

Balloon Adventures Birthday Card

I have the great privilege of helping my good friend host a Stampin’ Up! party this Friday.  I’ll be providing all the goodies to make four cards for her guests and because it looks like she’s going to have a great turnout, I wanted to keep them on the simpler side.  Having said that, I also wanted to show another option for the card going a step further in the design – the “step up” card.

My card uses Emerald Envy as its base which I layered with Whisper White.  I then stamped the sentiment from the Balloon Adventures Stamp Set in Pacific Point.  I created two balloons using Pacific Point, Emerald Envy, and Crushed Curry cardstock and ink and the Balloon Adventures Bundle.  I added two patterns from the Party Animal DSP to the bottom of the card.

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

For my “step up” version, I used basically the same ideas as the other card but created a pop-up card using the Balloon Adventures Bundle.  Because it makes a thicker card, I knew I needed a belly band to keep it closed.

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

This time I stamped the “swirlies” in Crushed Curry at the bottom of the card and made the belly band using Emerald Envy cardstock and the same patterns of DSP.

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

This is the first time I had made a pop-up card and it was super easy after I watched the Stampin’ Up! Balloon Pop-Up video which gave clear instructions.

Here’s how the inside of my card turned out – not bad for the first time!

Enjoy!
