Fall – Everyday Jars

You’ve made it – Happy Friday!  Congrats!  I hope you have a lovely weekend ahead of you.

I wanted today’s card to have the feel of fall, warm and cozy, without necessarily screaming fall, so here we go…

My card uses warm colors, starting with Tangerine Tango, Peekaboo Peach, and a pattern from the Fruit Stand DSP.  (This beautiful Designer Series Paper is part of the October DSP deal, see below.)  To start off, I cut a strip of burlap which I placed toward the bottom of the card and snuck in a piece of a delicate white doily behind it.

jar-of-love-stamp-it-up-with-jaimieNext, I created my little cluster to the right.  I punched a 1.5″ banner in Tangerine Tango using the Triple Banner Punch and layered it with some vellum.

Then I used the stem/flower framelit from the Everyday Jars Framelits for my flowers cut in Watermelon Wonder, Tangerine Tango, Peekaboo Peach, and Daffodil Delight.  I used by bone folder to flatten out the “negative” side because I didn’t want all the flowers facing the same way.

Finally I tied a linen bow around the bundle of flowers.

Next I heat embossed the Happy Birthday in white embossing powder using the sentiment from the Sunshine Sayings Stamp Set.

Enjoy!

My card layout was inspired by the challenge over at Stamp Ink Paper.

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!

Number of Years – Birthday

If you’re visiting my blog from Amy’s – Welcome and thanks for taking the time to swing by!

I created today’s card for a very special lady’s birthday.

I started with a base of Island Indigo and layered it with some Whisper White (gotta love Stampin Up’s white cardstock).

I used the Number of Years Bundle (love-love-love) to create the sentiment and flowers.

Number of Years - Stamp It Up With Jaimie

The “Happy” and “Birthday” were stamped in Melon Mambo and the numbers in Rich Razzleberry.

Number of Years - Stampin Up - Stamp It Up With Jaimie

I used Pear Pizzazz for the greenery and Rich Razzleberry, Melon Mambo, and Daffodil Delight for the flowers.  To make the ribbon I cut burlap and then pulled it apart.  I wrapped around the different threads and then tied a bow.

Enjoy!

Birthday Card

The other day I needed a birthday card and realized my stash is extremely low.  So it looks like it’s time to whip out some birthday cards!

This card was interesting for me to make because I mixed a whole bunch of colors together.  I usually go for coordinating colors, matchy-matchy, or even monochromatic, but I was in the mood to just mix it all up.

I started with a base of Rich Razzleberry and then layered it with Whisper White.  The sentiment stamped in Real Red comes from the Number of Years Bundle.

Balloon Celebration - Stamp It Up With Jaimie

On the bottom of the Whisper White I used one of the stamps from the Balloon Celebration Stamp Set to stamp different colored balloon silhouettes.  I used Island Indigo, Real Red, Mint Macaron, and Sahara Sand.

Balloon Celebration - Stampin Up - Stamp It Up With Jaimie

I punched out three balloons in Island Indigo, Real Red, and Mint Macaron and added some silver sequins as the balloon tails.  The balloon bows come from the Mint Macaron Baker’s Twine Combo Pack where I separated the two colors.

Enjoy!

HSS #230 Challenge

I love texture and even more so, the combination of soft and hard textures.

For the Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge, I thought I would mix it all up.

hss-230-sketch-0013.jpg

I got my inspiration from a scrapbook layout I did in the fall.

Stampin Up - Scrapbook - Crochet Trim

I combined the rough burlap with the softer crochet trim.  I also combined the more masculine colors, Mossy Meadow and Mint Macaron, with the more feminine flowers from the English Garden DSP, as well as the softer scalloped edge below the sentiment.

When in doubt – mix it all up!
