Stampin’ Up! Witty-Cisms Taco Birthday Card

My youngest daughter just turned 10 this past week.

With my kids’ birthdays, I always decorate the house (in whatever their favorite colors are at the time) and I also make their birthday card to coordinate with it.

My youngest’s favorite colors right now are black and red and she is obsessed with tacos!  So I knew the Witty-Cisms Stamp Set would be perfect for her card.

But I also knew I wanted to stamp the taco a bunch of times and in order to make it easier and quicker (as opposed to using the washi tape technique) I decided to cut up the solid stamp into three pieces.

My card starts off with Thick Whisper White cardstock.

Next I took a panel of Real Red cardstock and stamped the taco all over the front of it in Real Red ink.  I then matted this on Basic Black cardstock.

I stamped the taco three times in Memento Black ink on Whisper White cardstock and colored it in using Mango Melody, Light Soft Suede, and Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends Markers.

I used the Layering Circle Dies to cut out Basic Black scalloped circles and to cut out the tacos.

Lastly, I stamped the sentiments from the Witty-Cisms Stamp Set in Memento Black ink.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Birthday Card Beautiful Friendship

Every week for the month of October I’ve been giving my team a sketch and color challenge.  They can use them individually or in the same project.

I took a break from Christmas cards today and used the challenges to make a birthday card.

My card starts off with Terracotta Tile cardstock, on which I adhered a Terracotta Tile pattern from the 2019-2021 In-Color Designer Series Paper.

I next took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and stamped the flowers from the Beautiful Friendship Stamp Set in Terracotta Tile ink and leaves in Mint Macaron.  I then matted this on Mint Macaron cardstock.

Lastly I stamped the sentiment in parts so that it would fit on a long banner in Versamark ink, sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder, and heat set it.  In order to stamp the sentiment in parts, I covered the part I wasn’t stamping with washi tape, inked up the stamp, removed the tape, and stamped it down.  I did this until I had the full sentiment.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Bird Ballad Fussy Cutting Card

I put my fussy cutting skills to the test with today’s card.

The beautiful Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper in the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog has pages full of bird images perfect to be fussy cut out.

This paper is included in my Paper Share which gets you a sampling of all the new Designer Series Paper – more details below.

You’ll definitely want to cut the images out using Stampin’ Up!’s Paper Snips as they’re  ideal for small, tight spaces and they’re also very sharp.

My card starts off with Calypso Coral cardstock which I embossed using the Subtle Embossing Folder.

I used the Stitched Shapes Framelits to cut out a Peal Pink stitched circle and then used the Layering Circles Dies to cut out a scalloped circle from Whisper White cardstock.

I used Paper Snips to fussy cut out a one bigger bird image and one smaller flower image from the Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper.  I adhered them down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Itty Bitty Birthdays Stamp Set in Calypso Coral ink.  I tied a Linen Thread Bow through a Bird Ballad Trinket and added a few Petal Pink pearls from the Share What You Love Artisan Pearls around the card.

Enjoy!


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

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!

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!

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.
