Stampin’ Up! *NEW Amazing Life Birthday Cards

Today’s cards are ones I featured last week on my Facebook Live Video.

It uses the new to the 2019 Occasions Catalog Amazing You Stamp Set.  I made three cards using the same design, but each one is sort of a step up from the previous.

Whether you’re new to stamping, feel pretty comfortable stamping, or live and breathe stamping – the Amazing You Stamp Set is perfect for birthday cards!  It’ll be available to customers beginning January 3, 2019.

I’ll be doing another Facebook Live Video today at 1:00 pm EST.  If you catch the video live, leave a comment, I’ll draw a name at the end for someone to receive the card.

If you ever miss any of the videos, you can check them out on my YouTube Channel.

Check out the video below to see how I made the three birthday cards:

Stampin’ Up! Varied Vases Watercolor Birthday Card

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

My card today starts off with Mint Macaron cardstock.  I then matted a panel of Whisper White cardstock on Night of Navy cardstock.

Next I cut a large banner from a pattern from the Twinkle Twinkle Designer Series Paper.

Next I cut out a stitched oval from Watercolor Paper using the Stitched Shapes Framelits.  I stamped the vases and the scalloped line from the Varied Vases Stamp Set in Stazon Black ink.  I used an Aqua Painter to color over the vases in Coastal Cabana, Night of Navy, Mint Macaron, and Bermuda Bay ink.

I stamped the sentiment from the Varied Vases stamp set in Versamark ink on a piece of Night of Navy cardstock, sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder, and heat set it.  Lastly I tied a bow using the Thick Whisper White Baker’s Twine and adhered it over a white brad.

Enjoy!

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

My card today starts off with Lemon Lime Twist cardstock.

I then stamped a flower from the Abstract Impressions stamp set in Lovely Lipstick ink on Lovely Lipstick cardstock.  I then stamped the shadow image for the cluster of flowers in Versamark ink.  I sprinkled it with Black Embossing Powder and heat set it.  I matted this on Whisper White cardstock.

Stampin’ Up! Birthday Card GDP144

I’ve been so busy with thank you cards, I’ve sort of neglected birthday cards.

Today’s card came together so easily and yet the Broadway Bound Designer Series Paper really steals the show.

My card starts off with Thick Whisper White cardstock.  I then took the candle pattern from the Broadway Bound Designer Series Paper and matted it on Gold cardstock.

I took the star pattern and cut it in a banner and adhered it using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Next I took a Tupperware and mixed a little Gold embossing powder and Black embossing powder.  I stamped the sentiment from the Better Together stamp set in Versamark ink and sprinkled the mix of embossing powders on it.  I then heat set it.  The mix of the two colors gives a very cool look – love it!

Before adhering the sentiment down with Stampin’ Dimensionals, I wound behind it some gold and black cord.

Enjoy!


Today’s card was inspired by this week’s Global Design Project challenge.

Stampin’ Up! Rainbow Birthday Card

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

When I saw the new 2018-2019 In-Colors I knew they’d be perfect the Sunshine & Rainbows Bundle.

I started my card out with Blueberry Bushel cardstock.  I then took a panel of Lovely Lipstick and Grapefruit Grove cardstock and matted them on Whisper White cardstock.  I wrapped around it some Grapefruit Grove Twine from the Nature’s Twine Combo Pack (available June 1st).

This twine is GREAT!!!!  The only way I can describe it is it has a little “umf” in it…like it’s stiffer, so it makes a beautiful bow!  Get a sampling of this twine and all the new ribbon in my Annual Catalog Product Share!

Next I took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and used the Pattern Party Decorative Mask and Embossing Paste to create my clouds.  Embossing paste adds such great texture to the card and although I’ve left it white, you can dye it different colors.

Next I used the Sunshine & Rainbow Bundle to create my rainbow.  I cut the arcs in Lovely Lipstick, Grapefruit Grove, Pineapple Punch, Call Me Clover, Blueberry Bushel, and Rich Razzleberry cardstock.

*This bundle is set to retire, so get it while you can!

I put washi tape all along the back of the rainbow, first to hold the colors together, but also so I could adhered Stampin’ Dimensionals behind it!  I stamped a sun from the Sunshine & Rainbows stamp set in Pineapple Punch ink.

Lastly, I stamped the sentiment in Blueberry Bushel ink.

Enjoy!

My card today starts off with Bermuda Bay cardstock which I embossed using the Petal Pair embossing folder.  Then I started my layering with a pattern from the Naturally Eclectic Designer Series Paper, cut as a banner.

Next I adhered down a Whisper White stem cutout using the Petals & More Thinlits.  I also cut two leaves from Vellum cardstock using the Leaf Punch.

I stamped the sentiment in Coastal Cabana ink on a piece of Whisper White cardstock and cut it out using the Stitched Shapes Framelits.  Using the Layering Circles Framelits, I cut out a scalloped frame in Night of Navy cardstock.  I adhered the circle down using Stampin’ Dimensionals, but glued the scalloped frame down right on the card front.

I tied a bow using Whisper White Organza Ribbon and knotted around it a few Petal Passion Embellishments using Linen Thread.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Picture Perfect Birthday Card

Today’s card is a clean and simple birthday card.

Sometimes you just need to throw together a card quick.  My go-to in those times is always Designer Series Paper.  It fills a page while still bringing the “awe” factor.

Add some ribbon and a nice sentiment and voila – quick and simple!

Today’s card starts off with Berry Burst cardstock.  I then took a pattern from the Picture Perfect Birthday DSP and matted it on Whisper White cardstock, and then on Lemon Lime Twist cardstock.  I wrapped around some Lemon Lime Twist ribbon and adhered everything to the card.

I stamped the sentiment from the Picture Perfect Stamp Set in Bermuda Bay ink on Whisper White cardstock and added a Lemon Lime Twist banner behind it.

Quick.  Simple.  Pretty.

Enjoy!

Today’s card was inspired by this week’s Inspire.Create. Challenge.

Stampin’ Up! Sunshine & Rainbows Card

I don’t know about where you are, but it is bitter cold here in Upstate New York, so I’ll do just about anything to get some sunshine and warmth.

My card today did just that for me using the Sunshine & Rainbows Stamp Set.

I start out with Tempting Turquoise cardstock.  Next I matted a piece of Soft Sky cardstock on Whisper White cardstock.

I created my clouds and rainbow using the Sunshine & Rainbows Bundle and Berry Burst, Peekaboo Peach, Daffodil Delight, Wild Wasabi, Tempting Turquoise, Sweet Sugarplum, and Rich Razzleberry cardstock for the rainbow and Whisper White and vellum cardstock for the clouds.

I stamped the sentiment from the Sunshine & Rainbows Stamp Set in Berry Burst ink and adhered it using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Clear Epoxy Circles over the clouds.

Enjoy!

Today’s card was inspired by this week’s Freshly Made Sketches Challenge.

Stampin’ Up! NEW We Must Celebrate Card

Today’s card was inspired by this week’s Freshly Made Sketches Challenge.

You might look at today’s card and wonder whether it’s really me here…
I assure you that it’s still me.

You see I normally do very little coloring/shading in.  And this is my third card in one week that has coloring!  I’m having so much fun.

I couldn’t help myself and had to get this new We Must Celebrate Stamp SetThese little creatures are so adorable and can be used together, as well as stamped separately.  Today I decided to use the watercolor pencils to color them in, but I can’t wait to try the new Stampin’ Blends!

My card starts off with Crumb Cake cardstock.  I then cut a pattern from the Wood Textures DSP and adhered it to the card front.   I adhered a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock to the top of the card front.  I then stamped the little creatures from the We Must Celebrate Stamp Set in Archival Black ink on a piece of Watercolor Paper.

I used the Watercolor Pencils to color the creatures in.  I also used the Old Olive pencil to add some shading underneath the animals and very light Bermuda Bay above them for a sky.  I then used an Aqua Painter to evenly distribute the color.  I matted this on a piece of Basic Black cardstock and adhered it to the card.

I stamped the sentiment in Archival Black Ink on a panel of Crumb Cake cardstock and adhered it using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Lift Me Up

Today’s Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop is a color challenge.  Happy hopping!

For today’s card I thought I would take Christmas colors and make a non-Christmas card.

I haven’t used the Lift Me Up stamp set and coordinating framelits in a while and I forgot how much fun they are!!

My card starts off with Pool Party cardstock.  I then took the two larger cloud framelits and cut out clouds from the Pool Party.  I adhered a panel of Whisper White cardstock behind the clouds.

Next I stamped out different balloons in Real Red, Emerald Envy, and Pool Party ink and cut them out using the Up & Away Framelits.  I arranged them in different spots along the left side of the card.

I wrapped around some Pool Party Baker’s Twine in a bow.  Next I stamped the birthday sentiment in Emerald Envy ink on Whisper White.  I cut the two lines apart and attached them using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered behind the birthday sentiment a piece of a white doily.

Enjoy!
