Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Moments Birthday Card

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

My card starts off with Bermuda Bay cardstock.  I cut out a pattern from the Birthday Bonanza Designer Series Paper and matted it on Whisper White cardstock to adhere to the bottom of the card.

I took another pattern and used the Stitched Rectangles Dies to cut it out and then matted it on Grapefruit Grove cardstock.

I then stamped the sentiment from the Peaceful Moments Stamp Set in Bermuda Bay ink on Whisper White cardstock and cut it out using the Stitched Nested Labels Dies.

Lastly I added a Bermuda Bay bow next to the sentiment.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Friendship Birthday Card

It’s Friday, it’s finally Friday.

Who’s celebrating with me!!  I hope you have a great weekend ahead.

My card today starts off with Gorgeous Grape cardstock which I embossed using the Subtle Embossing Folder.  Next I took a Gorgeous Grape pattern from the Brights Designer Series Paper pack and matted it on Whisper White cardstock.

I then used the Beautiful Friendship and stamped the flowers in Gorgeous Grape and leaves in Call me Clover ink.  I cut it out using the So Sweetly Dies.

I stamped the sentiment from the Beautiful Friendship Stamp Set in Versamark ink, sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder, and heat set it.  In the corner I folded over a piece of White Flax Ribbon.

Lastly, I added a few rhinestones from the Noble Peacock Rhinestones.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Lovely Lily Pad Thank You Card Video Tutorial

Yay for it being Wednesday!!!
That means tonight I’ll be sharing a new Live Tutorial with you.

Today’s card(s) is the one I shared last week.  It’s a bright and cheerful thank you card that watercolors on vellum to give a really cool effect.

I started off with the white base as an example, but used the Melon Mambo base as the one I made live.

It’s so hard for me to pick a favorite, which do you like more?

The cards use the Lovely Lily Pad Stamp Set and Lily Pad Dies which are FREE right now during Sale-a-bration with a qualifying order.  So be sure to pick these as your free items while they’re still available!!

Be sure to join me tonight at 7:30 pm EST on my Facebook page for another live tutorial.  If you catch it live, you’ll have the chance to receive it free!

Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tropical Birthday Card

This month’s Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop theme is “Birthday.”  Have fun hopping around and seeing what the team created!

My card starts off with Lovely Lipstick cardstock which I embossed using the Coastal Weave Embossing Folder.

I then took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and stamped the circle from the Swirly Frames Stamp Set in Granny Apple Green ink.  I stamped the sentiment from the Timeless Tropical Stamp Set in Lovely Lipstick ink in the circle.

I then matted this on Granny Apple Green cardstock.  I took a Flirty Flamingo Heart Doily and adhered the edge of it to the right of the Whisper White panel where the flowers will be.

I used the In The Tropics Dies and cut out leaves from Granny Apple Green and Pear Pizzazz cardstock.  I cut out flowers from Lovely Lipstick and Flirty Flamingo cardstock.

Lastly I added a few Lovely Lipstick Enamel Dots.

Enjoy!

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! Sale-A-Bration Sneak Peek – Happy Birthday to You Card

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

My card today starts off with Thick Whisper White cardstock.  I then stamped the sentiment from the Happy Birthday To You Stamp Set in Flirty Flamingo ink.

Next I took a Soft Sea Foam pattern from the Subtles Designer Series Paper and matted it on Whisper White cardstock.

I stamped the cake from the Happy Birthday To You Stamp Set in Memento Black ink on Whisper White cardstock.  I used Petal Pink (cake), Flirty Flamingo (flowers), Soft Sea Foam (leaves), and Crumb Cake (stand) Stampin’ Blends Markers to color it in.  I fussy cut it out and adhered it down Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I used the Christmas Cardinal Dies to cut out two “flourishes” from Silver Foil and adhered them behind the cake.  Lastly I added a few rhinestones around the cake as well.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Gather Together Card

Last Saturday was World Card Making Day.

The team and I had fun going live all throughout the day with different presentations.  Today’s card is the one I shared.

It features the Gather Together Bundle and what I love (and it’s hard to see in the pictures) is the hint of gold ink on the leaves.  Be sure to watch the video below as you can see it better on video and I also show I got this effect.

It was really fun to see all our presentations and if interested, you can still join the group to see the different videos.

The design for today’s card was inspired by a color and sketch challenge I gave my team.  For the month of October, each week I’m giving them a new challenge.  The idea is to jumpstart creativity and even challenge them to try new things…and of course, there’ll be prizes at the end.  🙂

Stampin’ Up! Monochromatic Varied Vases Card

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

My card starts off with Rococo Rose cardstock.  I then matted a panel of Whisper White cardstock on Vellum cardstock.

I then adhered a Rococo Rose pattern from the 2019-2021 In-Color Designer Series Paper to the left of the card.

Using Memento Black ink and the Varied Vases Stamp Set, I stamped the three vase outlines on Rococo Rose cardstock, the flower outline on Whisper White cardstock, and the stems directly on the Very Vanilla cardstock in Memento Black ink.  I stamped the solid flower image in Rococo Rose ink.

I cut the vases, flowers, and leaves (from Mossy Meadow cardstock) out using the Vase Builder Punch.

I stamped the sentiment from the Varied Vases stamp set directly underneath the vases in Mossy Meadow ink and tied a Linen Thread bow around the one vase.

Enjoy!
