NEW Happy Birthday Thinlits

This week’s Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop is a color challenge.  It may look familiar as I accidentally did this one a few weeks ago.  Happy hopping!

My card today starts off with Night of Navy cardstock.  I took a smaller panel of Old Olive cardstock and dry embossed it using the NEW Oh My Stars TIEF (available for order starting June 1st).  I then matted it on some Whisper White cardstock and adhered it to the card.

Next I used the NEW Happy Birthday Thinlits (available for order starting June 1st) and cut out one Night of Navy and one Daffodil Delight “Happy Birthday.”  I offset the Night of Navy one a little bit underneath the Daffodil Delight and adhered them together.

The “To You” comes from the Banners for You stamp set which I stamped in Versamark ink and then sprinkled it with white embossing powder and heat embossed it.  I added a few Daffodil Delight and Old Olive enamel shapes to finish it off.

Enjoy!

Happy Birthday – Two Ways

This past week we celebrated both my husband’s birthday and mom’s birthday, which happen to fall the same day.

For their birthdays I thought I’d create one birthday card and make it two ways, one feminine and one masculine (or neutral).

Here are the two birthday cards:

For my mom’s card, I used Emerald Envy as the base.  I specifically picked this color because Emerald is the birthstone in May.  I then took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and stamped flowers in two corners.  I used the Penned & Painted stamp set and Watermelon Wonder (full strength and stamped off for lighter color) and Mint Macaron (full strength and stamped off for lighter color).

Next I used the Large Letters framelits to cut out the “B-Day” in Watermelon Wonder cardstock.  I straightened out the “Happy” from the Banners for You stamp set and stamped it in Emerald Envy ink.  I added a few rhinestones to finish off the card.

For my husband’s card, I started out with Basic Gray cardstock.  I used the Balloon Adventures stamp set and Old Olive and Smoky Slate ink to stamp the balloons in either corner.

The “B-Day” was cut out using Old Olive cardstock this time and the “Happy” this time was stamped in Smoky Slate ink.

Enjoy!

Monochromatic Sunshine Card

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

Today’s card starts off with Crushed Curry cardstock.  Using an Aqua Painter, I picked up some So Saffron ink and painted over the center of a panel of Watercolor Paper and adhered it to the Crushed Curry.

Next I added some layering first using the Stitched Shapes Framelits and Delightful Dijon cardstock (the square).  Then I cut a panel of Daffodil Delight cardstock and dry embossed it using the Sparkle embossing folder.  For the next layer I used the Archival Black ink and stamped the sun stamp from the Day at the Beach stamp set on some watercolor paper and cut it out using the Stitched Shapes Framelits.  I colored it in using Delightful Dijon ink and the Aqua Painter.

Lastly I stamped the “Sending” from the Sunshine Sayings Bundle in Archival Black ink and then cut out the “sunshine” from So Saffron cardstock using the cutout from the bundle.

Enjoy!

Happy Mother’s Day

Today’s card starts off with Sweet Sugarplum cardstock.  Using the Layering Circles Framelits I cut out a circle from just regular printing paper.  I placed the printing paper (with the circle cut from it) over a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock and inked up the Hardwood stamp set in Sahara Sand ink and stamped over it.  Once I removed the printing paper, I was left with the Hardwood stamp image in a circle shape on my cardstock.

I matted this on some Pink Pirouette cardstock and then adhered them to the card.

Next using the Flourish Thinlits I cut out two leaves (Mint Macaron cardstock) and one flower (Pink Pirouette) cardstock and adhered them over the stamped Hardwood image.  I added a Pink Pirouette enamel circle to the center of my flower.

My sentiment comes from the Oh So Succulent stamp set which I stamped in Sahara Sand ink on Very Vanilla cardstock.  I layered underneath it a small banner of Pink Pirouette cardstock and some Very Vanilla ribbon.

Enjoy!

Today’s card was inspired by challenges at Stamp, Ink, Paper and The Paper Players.

Suite Sentiments – Carousels

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

My card today starts off with Early Espresso cardstock.  I took a pattern from the Cupcakes & Carousels DSP and matted it on Very Vanilla cardstock and adhered it to the card.  I took another pattern from the DSP and cut a 2′ banner to go at the center of the card.

I cut out a scalloped square using the Layering Squares Framelits and Early Espresso cardstock and wrapped some Calypso Coral Thick Baker’s Twine around it.  One of the patterns from the Cupcakes & Carousels DSP has carousel horses on it, so I fussy cut one out and adhered it over the scalloped square using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Lastly, I stamped my sentiment from the Suite Sentiments stamp set in Early Espresso ink on Very Vanilla cardstock.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Special Reason Wedding

Tomorrow afternoon and Friday night I’ll be hosting my May Make & Take stamp party.  Each month we make 4 cards featuring one bundle that month.  We have a great time and if you’re ever in the Albany, NY area – I’d love to have you join me!

The card today is one that we’ll be making this week.

My card starts off with Very Vanilla cardstock as my base.  I then took a 3′ pattern from the Falling In Love DSP and matted it on some Copper Foil Sheet.

Next I took a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock and inked up the sentiment from the Better Together Stamp Set in Versamark ink.  I sprinkled Copper embossing powder on it and heat embossed it using the Heat Tool.

Before adhering the sentiment to the card, I cut out one Very Vanilla flower and one Copper Foil flower using the Stylish Stems Thinlits.  I wound some Copper Thread behind the sentiment and then tucked the flowers behind that.

Enjoy!

Congrats – Cupcakes & Carousels

Whenever I need a quick card – I always turn to Designer Series Paper (DSP).  It fills the card nicely and all you have to do is add a sentiment and maybe another detail or two and you’re good!

My card today starts off with Bermuda Bay cardstock as its base.  I then took a pattern from the Cupcakes & Carousels DSP and using a sponge, highlighted around the edge of it with Early Espresso ink.  The paper naturally has a distressed look to it, but I thought I would just emphasize it even more.

I then took another pattern from the Cupcakes & Carousels DSP and adhered a panel to the lower part of my card.  Using yet again another pattern, I cut a square and matted it on Calypso Coral cardstock and adhered it to my card.  Lastly I used the Banners for You bundle and Bermuda Bay ink to stamp and cut out my sentiment.

We made this card at a continuing education class I taught this spring.  I accidentally cut the Bermuda Bay cardstock the wrong way and so we turned it around a bit.  I love how this one came out too!

Enjoy!
