I have a wedding coming up and wanted to make a card to coordinate with their colors – Purple and Silver.

My card uses Rich Razzleberry as its base which I layered with Silver Foil and some more Rich Razzleberry.

Between the Silver and the top Rich Razzleberry I used the new Sale-a-bration Any Occasion Stamp Set and stamped the banners in Memento Black and Rich Razzleberry.  My initial intention was for the Rich Razzleberry banner to line up perfrectly with the swag, but neither came out that way and I really liked the look it made, so I kept it.

Enjoy!

NEW So Very Much Sale-a-bration Card

My card today definitely makes me laugh when I look at it.  The reason – it’s not at all where I was going when I started creating it.  This card is literally the product of a few things gone wrong.

My card uses Sahara Sand as its base.  I stamped the Thank You from the Sale-a-bration So Very Much Stamp Set (available free with $50 purchase starting January 4th) in Soft Suede on a gorgeous pattern from the NEW Falling in Love DSP.

This is where my first problem came about – I stamped the Thank You completely crooked.  I couldn’t bring myself to toss the paper, so I decided to offset the DSP and Blushing Bride cardstock underneath it.

so-very-much-stamp-it-up-with-jaimie

I put a piece of a Delicate Doily under the cardstock before adhering them to the base.  I also took another pattern from the Falling in Love DSP and cut it in a strip to put underneath the sentiment.

so-very-much-stampin-up-stamp-it-up-with-jaimie

My second oops came when I stamped the “So Very Much” underneath the thank you.  This too was completely crooked, so I decided to just hide it using two flowers (Whisper White and Blushing Bride) and two leaves (Sahara Sand) from the Botanical Builder Framelits.

This definitely proves that even mess-ups make for a pretty card!

Enjoy!

Party Pants

Today’s card’s color inspiration comes from the Can You Case It Challenge.  I love these colors together!

CYCI113-300x228

The picture doesn’t show it too clearly, but I started with a base color of Thick Whisper White and then just the right side with Sahara Sand.  I then layered them with Basic Gray.

Party Pants - Stamp It Up With Jaimie

I used the Softly Falling Impressions Embossing Folder to give the Basic Gray some texture.  It mirrors the falling effect on the balloons.

The Night of Navy balloons are from the Balloon Celebration Bundle.  The dots were stamped in VersaMark and heat embossed in white.  The Happy Birthday sentiment is from the Party Pants (Sale-a-bration) Stamp Set and is stamped in Night of Navy.

Mojo Monday 441

For today’s card, I had fun playing along with the Mojo Monday challenge.

I started with a background of Cajun Craze and layered it with hello Honey.  I then took two different patterns from the Botanical Gardens DSP and layered the card with 1/3 of one and 2/3 of another, the second one layered with the Botanical Gardens Vellum (from Sale-a-bration).

Botanical Blooms - Stamp It Up With Jaimie

I then created my own pattern with the Botanical Blooms Stamp Set in Cajun Craze, Hello Honey, Old Olive, and Mint Macaron.

I then used a third pattern from the Botanical Gardens DSP and punched it with a 2″ punch and layered it with the sentiment “Happy Day” from the Perfect Pairings (from Sale-a-bration) in Cajun Craze.

Enjoy!

Freshly Made Sketches 229

Today’s layout inspiration comes from the Freshly Made Sketches #229FMS Final 229-001

For the card, it’s all about the beautiful What I Love Stamp Set from Sale-a-bration.  I started with Thick Whisper White cardstock.  I then took the What I Love Stamp Set and stamped in 2-3/4″ squares different colored flowers.  The stamp set is two-step and although mine aren’t perfectly lined up, I actually like it that way.

What I Love - Stamp It Up With Jaimie

For the top flower, I used Calypso Coral as my light color (stamping off first for the lightest variation) and then Cajun Craze as the darkest color.

Pool Party was used as the lightest color for my blue flower (again stamping off first for the lightest part) and then I used the retired Coastal Cabana for the darkest shade.

What I Love - Stamp It Up With Jaimie - Pool Party

My purple flower was made using Rich Razzleberry for the lighter shade and Blackberry Bliss for the darker shade.  I then added a vertical strip of Venetian Trim to give it some texture.

The sentiment, “Know what I love?” is from the same What I Love Stamp Set and is stamped in Pool Party.  The “You!” was stamped on the inside of the card.

Spring Birthday

Happy Monday everyone!  Poor Mondays, they have such a bad name for themselves, but honestly, it’s a new week and a new chance to accomplish things and move forward!  So, here’s to Monday!

I have April birthdays looming around the corner, so it’s about time to get working on them.

For today’s card I started with a Thick Whisper White as my base.  From there I got out the beautiful Birthday Bouquet DSP and cut different patterns out in a variety of widths.  I layered them over a Watermelon Wonder cardstock.

Happy Birthday - Stamp It Up With Jaimie

For fun, I snuck in a Metallic Foil Doily and a simple white knot.

Happy Birthday - Stamp It Up WIth Jaimie - Stampin Up

For my sentiment I used the Perfect Pairing “Happy Birthday” which I love, love, love.  I tend to gravitate towards clean, simple sentiments and this gem that Sale-a-bration has is a must!  For a little sparkle, I added a Botanical Garden Jewel and a small Rhinestone.

Enjoy!

Mojo Monday #438

It’s that time of the week for Mojo Monday.

Mojo438

For today’s card, I started with a base of Mossy Meadow layered with Hello Honey.  Can you believe these colors are going to be discontinued before we know it?  Sniff, sniff.

The beautiful flower paper is from the English Garden DSP and was cut using the Circle Framelits and then layered over a circle of Mossy Meadow.Thank You - Stamp It Up With Jaimie

As a hint of detail, I used the flowers in Botanicals for You and stamped them on the Hello Honey cardstock in VersaMark which gives just the slightest of watermarks.

Thank You - Stamp It Up With Jaimie - Stampin UpThe sentiment, “Thank You,” comes from the One Big Meaning Stamp Set which I think is just great for thank you cards.  It gives you so many options when it comes to thank you sentiments!

I added a knot in Hello Honey just over the sentiment to finish it off!

Sweet Spring Wishes

I naturally tend to go for the beautiful Designer Series Paper when creating a card; however, I’ve been wanting to stretch myself a bit and take advantage of the beautiful stamp sets to create my own patterned paper.

For today’s card, I started off with a Whisper White Thick Cardstock (I’m telling you, this stuff is amazing) layered with Old Olive and then a regular Whisper White cardstock.

For the focus of my card, I used the sentiment and other details from the Botanicals for You Stamp Set.  The “Just for You” is stamped in Old Olive and the flowers and leaves are done in Pool Party, Blushing Bride, Daffodil Delight, and Old Olive (all spring colors – love them!).

Botanicals For You - Stamp It Up With Jaimie

To add some layering detail, I used a Tea Lace Doily, some Blushing Bride Baker’s Twine, and Silver Metallic Thread.  “On Your Special Day” is stamped in Pool Party and matted over the same.

Enjoy!

Just For You – Watercoloring

I have wanted to try this technique for a while now and finally got to play around with it yesterday.  Isn’t this a really cool effect?

I started off with a background of Rich Razzleberry and then layered it with watercolor paper.  To get the effect of the sentiment, Just For You, from the Botanicals For You Sale-a-bration stamp set, you heat emboss it in white first.  That way when you watercolor over it, the embossing resists the ink.

Just For You - Stamp It Up With Jaimie - Stampin Up

Then I took Rich Razzleberry, Island Indigo, and Old Olive and watercolored over the sentiment and paper.  Lastly, I used the Gorgeous Grunge Stamp Set in Rich Razzleberry (stamped off first) to add some dots.

I finished it off with a few Old Olive sequins and Baker’s Twine.

Enjoy!

Freshly Made Sketches 226 & SSC121

I thought the color challenge by Sunday Stamps this week was really sweet!  For pink I used Blushing Bride and for brown I used Chocolate Chip.

ssc121

I combined it with the clean, crisp layout challenge from Freshly Made Sketches this week.

FMS Final 226-001

I started with a background of Chocolate Chip on Whisper White and layered it with Blushing Bride (embossed in Polka Dots) and layered over Whisper White.

You're Awesome - Stamp It Up With Jaimie

My sentiment comes from the Botanicals For You Sale-a-bration Stamp Set and is stamped in Blushing Bride.  I added a sliver of Blushing Bride Baker’s Twine over it.  The flower comes from the Flower Shop Bundle.  It’s stamped on Chocolate Chip and heat embossed in White.  There’s an Iced Rhinestone at the center just to add a little bling.

Enjoy!
