Stampin’ Up! Sympathy Card

Today’s card is inspired by the challenges over at Sunday Stamps and the Color Throwdown.

ssc138swatch415My card uses Chocolate Chip as my base and I layered it with Sahara Sand.  To the right of the card, I used a pattern from the Petals & Paisleys.  I placed a piece of Whisper White to the left on the card and covered the seam with Mint Macaron ribbon.

sympathy-stamp-it-up-with-jaimie

I used the Number of Years stamp set to create two bundles of flowers on the top and bottom of the Whisper White.  I stamped the stems in Chocolate Chip and the other flowers in Mint Macaron, Cherry Cobbler, and Sahara Sand.

The sentiment is from the Better Together stamp set (need some good sentiments – this is the stamp set for you) and was stamped in Cherry Cobbler over the same cardstock.

Enjoy!

Totally Trees – Birthday

Before I show you my card, I first need to show you my inspiration, this week’s challenge over at Sunday Stamps.

ssc136f

Okay, now that I’ve showed you that, we can move on to my card…

I started with Early Espresso as my base and layered it with Cajun Craze on Very Vanilla.

totally-trees-stamp-it-up-with-jaimie

I then took the Woodgrain embossing folder and dry embossed a piece of Crumb Cake and cut it into 3 separate pieces.  I took a pattern from the Petals & Paisleys and cut it in a strip and layered it with some Very Vanilla Lace Trim.

totally-trees-stampin-up-stamp-it-up-with-jaimie

Next I used the Totally Trees Stamp Set to create my tree which I cut out using the Layering Oval Framelits.  I initially wanted to do the Baby Wipe Technique; however, I realized you have ink refills for this technique.  So, I made my twist on this technique.  I used a dry paper towel and picked up some color (Crushed Curry, Pumpkin Pie, Cajun Craze) on it and just kind of smeared the stamp in different spots with each other and voila!

I created my sentiment using the Thoughtful Banners stamp set in Pumpkin Pie.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Totally Trees

My inspiration for today’s card comes from this week’s challenge over at Sunday Stamps and I have to say I found it challenging.  My mind is already on fall colors and upcoming holidays.  But here we go…

ssc135f

So, if we’re going to do bright and cheerful, I mean, we’re going to go for it – we’re going tropical.

I used Tempting Turqoise as my case color and layered it with Whisper White.  I used the little sun stamp (which is actually two combined) from the Totally Trees Stamp Set in Daffodil Delight to create a bright sunshine to my card.

totally-trees-stamp-it-up-with-jaimie

In the Totally Trees Stamp Set there are a variety of trees in different shapes and sizes, but today I’m using the palm tree.  I first stamped a few palm trees in Dapper Denim on the Whisper White and then stamped it once more in Bermuda Bay on Whisper White layered over Bermuda Bay.

totally-trees-stampin-up-stamp-it-up-with-jaimie

Lastly I used the Better Together Stamp Set to stamp my sentiment in Melon Mambo and added a few loops of Melon Mambo Thick Baker’s Twine to make a bow over the one highlighted palm tree.

Enjoy!

Merry Christmas Banner

For today’s card, I’m participating in this week’s challenge over at Sunday Stamps.SSC134FMy card is a mixture of Christmas items from the 2016-2017 Annual Catalog and the new 2016 Holiday Catalog.  I used Cherry Cobbler as my base and layered it with Very Vanilla which I dry embossed in the Holly Textured embossing folder.

Merry Christmas - Stamp It Up With Jaimie

I then created my banner using Garden Green cardstock, Cherry Cobbler cardstock, and a few patterns from the This Christmas DSP.  I love the Triple Banner Punch – it so easy to snip the ends of the banners.  I used the new Hang Your Stocking Bundle to create the holly and Christmas tree on the two solid banners.

Merry Christmas - Stamp It Up With Jaimie - Stampin Up

Finally, I added some Cherry Cobbler Baker’s Twine to be able to “hang” my banner and then stamped the sentiment in Cherry Cobbler, cutting it out using the Layering Ovals.

Stampin’ Up! Balloon Celebration

For today’s card share, I combined the color challenge over at Sunday Stamps with the sketch challenge over at Global Design Project. sketch Challenge GDP

I used Crumb Cake as the base for my card and layered it with Dapper Denim.  For the Soft Sky on the Dapper Denim, I dry embossed it using the Sparkle Textured Embossing Folder and left the “negative” side facing out.

Balloon Celebration - Stamp It Up With Jaimie

Next I created my balloons using the Balloon Bouquet Punch which coordinates with the Balloon Celebration Stamp Set.  I stamped the little dots on each balloon in the coordinating color before punching them out.  I cut balloons out in Crumb Cake, Dapper Denim, and Night of Navy.

Balloon Celebration - Stamp It Up With Jaimie - Stampin Up

Next, I stamped the sentiment from the Balloon Celebration Stamp Set in Night of Navy and added a Night of Navy Enamel Star.  Lastly, before adhering balloons to the card, I attached some Night of Navy Baker’s Twine to make strings for the balloons and tied the ends in a bow.

Enjoy!

Birthday – Sunday Stamps132

Happy Tuesday – thanks for taking the time to swing by my blog today!

I had fun making today’s card first off because it’s a horizontal layout.  I normally do vertical cards, so this was fun.  The layout comes from this week’s Sunday Stamps challenge.

ssc132F1

To start my card off I used Bermuda Bay as my base color.  I used a pattern from the Blooms & Bliss DSP for my vertical detail.

Better Together - Stamp It Up With Jaimi

My sentiment comes from the Better Together Stamp Set.  I stamped the Happy Birthday in Bermuda Bay and then stamped stars all around it in Bermuda Bay and Island Indigo.  I then cut it out using the Layering Circles Framelits and also cut out a Bermuda Bay circle and an Island Indigo scallop to layer underneath it.

Better Together - Stamp It Up With Jaimie - Stampin Up

Now, although it is retired, I couldn’t resist using the Chevron Punch for the detail under my sentiment.  I just can’t resist a good chevron detail.  😉

Enjoy!

Sweet Cupcake Birthday

I have to say the Sweet Cupcake Bundle is one of the “yummiest” around and very “sweet” to work with.

142232G

My layout inspiration for today’s card comes from this week’s challenge over at Sunday Stamps.

SSC130F

For the card, I used Smoky Slate as my base color.  I then used the swirly framelit which is included in the Sweet Cupcake Bundle and cut it out in Bermuda Bay, Flirty Flamingo, and Whisper White and adhered them to the Smoky Slate.

Sweet Cupcake - Stamp It Up With Jaimi

For my tag, I cut out a 2″ strip of Whisper White and cut the end of it with the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch.  I then stamped the “Make A” in Bermuda Bay at the top and added the Stitched Smoky Slate Ribbon to the hole in the tag and tied it off with a bow.

Sweet Cupcake - Stampin Up - Stamp It Up With Jaimie

I cut out the banner in Bermuda Bay from the banner included in the bundle.  It’s kind of hard to tell here, but this banner is really neat because it’s 3 dimensional.  The ends folder over.  The “Wish” was cut out in Flirty Flamingo and adhered over the banner.

The top of the cupcake was created using Flirty Flamingo (stamped off once for the lighter shade) and (I believe, forgive me as I made this a few days ago and my memory is the worst) Melon Mambo.  The cupcake holder was created using Bermuda Bay (stamped off once for the lighter shade) and Smoky Slate.  They were cut out using the Bundle’s framelits and adhered at the bottom of the tag.

Enjoy!

Jar of Love Hello

I love, love, love the mix of colors over at Sunday Stamps – so earthy and yummy.

SSC129FI also equally love, love, love the new Jar of Love Bundle.  Not only does the stamp set include 37 images, but the framelits include 17 dies making it easy to layer and overlap the different images nicely.  I also love the sweet sentiments, as well as the flower images which can be used for so much more beyond just the jars.

142342GI started with a base color of Soft Suede and embossed it using the Woodgrain Textured Embossing Folder to give it some texture.

Jar of Love - Stamp It Up With Jaimi

My jars were stamped in Smoky Slate as was the little bug.  All images were cut using the coordinating framelits.

The stems, bow, and sentiment were stamped in Pear Pizzazz and Wild Wasabi and cut using the coordinating framelits.

NEW Sunshine Sayings Card

I received my order full of new goodies today in the mail.  (I may or may not have been stalking my front door.)  I couldn’t wait to put them to use.

I was inspired by the Sunday Stamps layout challenge this week for today’s card.

SSC128FI went for bright, fun colors to coordinate with the fun, whimsy stamps and thinlits in this bundle.  I started with a base of Bermuda Bay and then layered it with Whisper White.

Sunshine Sayings - Stamp It Up With Jaimie

I cut a piece of Daffodil Delight and Flirty Flamingo (love this new pink) and off set them one over the other.  I then used the flower builder from the Sunshine Sayings Stamp Set and stamped a few flowers in Flirty Flamingo over the same color.

Sunshine Sayings - Stampin Up - Stamp It Up With Jaimie

I then cut out the “love” and stamped the sentiment in Bermuda Bay and Daffodil Delight butterflies using the coordinating thinlits in the Sunshine Sayings Bundle.

Have you been having nice weather where you are?  Here in Upstate New York it’s actually been (dare I say) hot?!  So when I saw the color challenge over at Sunday Stamps this week, I can actually say I felt inspired.

ssc127f

I used Night of Navy as my base and layered it with Whisper White.  I then layered some Bermuda Bay over the white using the vine thinlit to have the white peak out from behind.

Botanical Builder - Stamp It Up With Jaimie

I used the Botanical Builder Framelits to create a cluster of flowers in the corner using Night of Navy, Mint Macaron, Pear Pizzazz, and Old Olive.  I then used a retired stamp for my sentiment stamped and mounted in Night of Navy.
