Stampin’ Up! Party Puffins Birthday Card

You know when you tell yourself you don’t NEED that stamp set…
and then you see everyone making the most adorable cards with it and suddenly you NEED it immediately?!

Am I the only one?
That’s what happened with the Party Puffins Stamp Set and I am so glad I got it!!

Stampin’ Up! Party Puffins Birthday Card

My card starts off with Bermuda Bay cardstock which I covered with a pattern from the Snail Mail Designer Series Paper.

**The Snail Mail Designer Series Paper is retiring and only available right now while supplies last! So don’t wait!!

Stampin’ Up! Party Puffins Birthday Card

I then took a panel of Basic White cardstock and used the Stamparatus to stamp the puffin in Memento Black ink.

I used the Stamparatus because I wanted a really dark, crisp stamped image and would highly recommend using it if you’re stamping with the Party Puffins Stamp.

Stampin’ Up! Party Puffins Birthday Card

On a separate piece of Basic Black, I stamped three fish, the puffin with the party hat, and the sentiment. I colored everything in using the Bermuda Bay, Pumpkin Pie, and Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends Markers,

Stampin’ Up! Party Puffins Birthday Card

I fussy cut the fish out and the party hat off and adhered them down. I then added a few rhinestones around the fish.

Stampin’ Up! Right Behind You Card

Sometimes when you don’t know what to say, a card does the job.

The Right Behind You Stamp has some really great sentiments of encouragement and friendship and helps make the perfect card to send to show your love and support!

I used it for this week’s Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop sketch challenge.

My card starts off with Thick Basic White cardstock.

Stampin’ Up! Right Behind You Card

I then took a panel of Garden Green cardstock and cut the hill using the Basic Borders Dies. I did this first so I would know placement of the bicycle.

Stampin’ Up! Right Behind You Card

Using the Stamparatus, I stamped the bicycle and flowers above the hill.

I used the Stamparatus: A) Because I knew it would take a few goes with the Memento Black Ink Pad to get perfect coverage and a crisp look and B) Because I could stamp the bicycle and flowers exactly where they needed to go.

Stampin’ Up! Right Behind You Card

I colored the images in using: Polished Pink (shirt and flowers), Fresh Freesia (shirt and flowers), Ivory (skin), Crumb Cake (hair), Daffodil Delight (hair), and Pale Papaya (flowers) Stampin’ Blends Markers.

Stampin’ Up! Right Behind You Card

I then wound around some Linen Thread into a bow. I stamped the sentiment from the Right Behind You Stamp Set in Memento Black ink on Basic White cardstock and cut it out with the Stitched Rectangles Dies.

Stampin’ Up! What’s Cookin’ Card

My first paper crafting love was scrapbooking. I don’t do it nearly as much as card making (like, once a year as much), but I still love it.

When I saw the What’s Cookin’ Bundle in the Annual Catalog, I knew I NEEDED it for card making and scrapbooking.

Stampin’ Up! What’s Cookin’ Card

Just think – holiday pictures, barbeques, and fun times cooking in the kitchen. I can’t wait to use it for scrapbooking!!!

Stampin’ Up! What’s Cookin’ Card

But last week I used it for my live Wednesday night tutorial to make a fun card. I love the stamped background and the polka dot embossed cardstock.

Stampin’ Up! What’s Cookin’ Card

But do you want to know what my favorite thing is about this card??

The little thread around the handle of the cutting board. Silly, I know. But I just love that little detail.

I’ll be back tonight on Facebook at 7:30 EST with a new card. It’s a, well, um, sorta, uhhhhh…Christmas card.

Don’t throw any tomatoes at me. I was in the mood to make a Christmas card the other day. So join me tonight live. It’s actually a fun fold card, well, a ridiculously easy, almost too easy to be called fun fold card.

If you ever miss any tutorial, you can always check them out over on my YouTube Channel.

Now, to see how I made today’s card, check out the video below:

Stampin’ Up! Artistically Inked Birthday Card

The Artistic Dies are GORGEOUS and really make a statement.

I love the floral image, as well as the big leaf image and think I’ll be coming back to play with these dies a lot.

Today I used the floral die for a simply designed card.

Stampin’ Up! Artistically Inked Birthday Card

My card starts off with Thick Basic White cardstock.

Stampin’ Up! Artistically Inked Birthday Card

On another panel of Basic White, using a Blending Brush, I added a little Poppy Parade to the corner. I then adhered this down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I then used the Poppy Parade pattern from the Ombre Specialty Paper and cut out a floral image using the Artistic Dies. I adhered this down using liquid glue only on the center.

Stampin’ Up! Artistically Inked Birthday Card

The Artistically Inked Stamp Set has a great birthday sentiment, but I wanted one more scripty, so I stamped the sentiment from the Sweet Ice Cream Stamp Set in Memento Black ink, fussy cut it out, and adhered it down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Lastly, I added some rhinestones around and a silver bow.

Thanks for checking out my project today!!! I hope you feel inspired to create beautiful, simple cards!!!

Stampin’ Up! Freezin’ Fun Racoon Card

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

My card starts off with Pool Party cardstock.

I then took a panel of Poppy Parade cardstock and embossed it using the Winter Snow Embossing Folder.

I adhered a pattern from the Trimming the Town Designer Series Paper on Whisper White cardstock. I then used the Freezin’ Friends Dies to cut a snow slope from Whisper White cardstock. Above the slope I stamped the “whoosh” in Memento Black ink on the Designer Series Paper.

I stamped the raccoon from the Freezin’ Fun Stamp Set in Memento Black ink. I colored it in using the Smoky Slate (raccoon), Poppy Parade (scarf and hat), and Soft Suede (sled) Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut it out using the same dies and adhered him down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Freezin’ Fun Stamp Set in Poppy Parade ink, cutting it out with the Tasteful Labels Dies.

Finally, I used the All The Trimmings Embellishments to add a star over the tree and a white pom-pom at the end of the raccoon’s hat.

Stampin’ Up! So Happy For You Card

Dies that coordinate with stamped images are helpful, practical, and fun.

But standalone dies make them even more versatile and the cute houses in the Home Together Die caught my eye from the start!

My card starts off with Thick Whisper White cardstock. I then took a Blackberry Bliss pattern from the Regals Designer Series Paper and cut it at an angle. I used the long stitched die in the Stitched Nested Labels Dies to give a stitch to the edge.

I wound a piece of Bumblebee Ribbon around a Gold Hoop and secured it with a Gold bow and glued it down.

I then used the Home Together Dies to cut out a house from Rich Razzleberry cardstock and greenery from Bumblebee and Night of Navy cardstock. I adhered the images down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the A Little Lace Stamp Set in Night of Navy ink and cut it out using the Tasteful Labels Dies, adhering it down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin’ Up! Press On Birthday Card

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

My card starts off with Cinnamon Cider cardstock. I then matted a pattern from the Plaid Tidings Designer Series Paper on Basic Black cardstock.

I stamped the coffee cup from the Press On Stamp Set in Memento Black ink on Whisper White cardstock. I colored in the bottom using Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends Markers I then fussy cut it out.

I stamped the same coffee cup on a piece of Cinnamon Cider cardstock, which I then embossed using one of the folders from the Wrapped in Texture Embossing Folders. I fussy cut the band out and adhered it over the coffee cup.

Underneath it I added a few sprigs, which I cut out from Cajun Craze cardstock using the Sunflower Dies, and some Cinnamon Cider ribbon. I also used the Stitched Shapes Dies to cut out a Basic Black circle and around I added a few Cinnamon Cider Enamel Dots.

Lastly, I stamped the sentiment from the Press On Stamp Set in Cajun Craze ink on Whisper White cardstock and then cut it out using the Stitched Nested Dies.
