Stampin’ Up! Bright Happy Birthday Card

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.

I then cut out two “Happy Birthdays” from the Happy Birthday thinlits, which I adhered over one another using liquid glue.  I wrapped a black ribbon knot around the whole bottom of the card.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Celebrate Card

Three more days until the Annual Catalog goes live!!  I don’t know about you – But I am ecstatically excited!!!

Now on to today’s card…I stared off with Thick Whisper White cardstock on which I adhered a pattern from the Picture Perfect Party Designer Series Paper.  I then offset a panel of Peekaboo Peach and Bermuda Bay cardstock.

Next I created a starburst circle using the Layering Circles Framelits.  I was going to show this card tomorrow night in my Facebook Live Tutorial to show how I created the sunburst, but then I realized tomorrow night is an Interactive Video!!!  Needless to say, this card tutorial will have to wait.

Next I cut another pattern from the It’s My Party DSP and adhered it using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Lastly, I cut out the “celebrate” using the Celebrate You Thinlits Dies from Bermuda Bay cardstock.  I squished it into Versamark ink and sprinkled it with clear embossing powder.  I heat set it with a heat tool.  It gives a very fun, shiny effect to it.

Enjoy!

Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge #288

Happy Tuesday everyone!

I sure hope your week is going smoothly so far.  It seems as though we finally have spring here in Upstate New York.  Yesterday was filled with kids on their bikes, dirty feet, and ice cream.

I’m so excited to share with you the next Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge #288 as it screams spring!  I really hope you’ll hop over to see what the design team created for this challenge and I sure hope you’ll participate!

I first started off with Rich Razzleberry cardstock.  Next I took a pattern from the Wood Textures DSP and stamped the sentiment from the Perennial Birthday Stamp Set in Versamark ink.  I sprinkled it with white embossing powder and heat set it.

Next I took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and laid the Wood Textures panel over it.  I marked where it would get adhered with a pencil.  I then used the Perennial Birthday Stamp Set (which is carrying over into the 2018-2019 Annual Catalog – wahoo!) and stamped a variety of flowers in Memento Black ink all around that penciled line.  I colored the flowers in using Rich Razzleberry, Daffodil Delight, and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers.

I adhered the Wood Textures DSP using Stampin’ Dimensionals and added Rich Razzleberry Pearls (from the Share What You Love Artisan – available June 1st) around the flowers.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Picture Perfect Birthday

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

I was REALLY inspired by this week’s colors!!  I love these colors together.  They just look so funky.

My card starts off with Basic Black cardstock.  I then took a pattern from the Petal Passion DSP and used a Sponge Dauber to stamp Lemon Lime Twist ink in two corners.  I matted this on Lemon Lime Twist cardstock and adhered it to the card.

Next I created my cluster in the center of the card.  First I adhered down a piece of Lemon Lime Twist ribbon.  Next I stamped the banner from the Banners for You Stamp Set and cut it out using the coordinating Bunch of Banners Framelits.  I trimmed off the one side (see below) of the banner and adhered it down.

I used the Picture Perfect Birthday stamp set to make my party blowers.  I alternated Lemon Lime Twist, Berry Burst, and Memento Black ink and then fussy cut them out.

Lastly, I stamped the sentiment in Versamark ink on Berry Burst cardstock, sprinkled it with white embossing powder, and heat set it.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! We Must Celebrate

I cannot say enough how much I love the Stampin’ Blends Markers.

I’m not usually one to color a lot, but they make coloring and shadowing so easy.

Although the Pink Pirouette markers (as used in today’s card) are retiring, 11 new colors are being added to the Stampin’ Blends collection.

My card today starts off with Thick Whisper White cardstock.  I then layered over it a pattern from the Petal Passion DSP and added a 1-1/2″ Pink Pirouette banner over that.

Next I stamped the animals from the We Must Celebrate Stamp Set in Memento Black ink on a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I colored in the images using Crumb Cake, Smoky Slate, and Pink Pirouette Stampin’ Blends Markers.

I stamped the sentiment in Memento Black ink on a small panel of Pink Pirouette cardstock and added a few Pink Pirouette Enamel stars in the bottom corner.

Enjoy!


Today’s card was inspired by this week’s Fab Friday Challenge.

Stampin’ Up! Bird Banter Birthday

First things first:  The Clearance Rack has just been updated.  The prices are incredibly low on these items so they’re sure to go fast.  Check everything out here.

Now on to today’s card…

My card today starts off with Daffodil Delight cardstock.  I then cut a pattern from the Myths & Magic DSP to adhere on an angle over it.

Next I cut a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I first stamped the birds from the Bird Banter Stamp Set in Memento Black ink.  I then stamped the branches underneath the birds.  For a few of them I had to do the masking technique.

This is where you stamp the (in this case) bird on a scrap piece of computer paper (or Post-It) and then fussy cut it out.  You lay this paper over the stamped image (again, in this case, the bird) and then you stamp the other image over it (in this case, the branch).  This gives the illusion that the branch is going behind the bird.  (See the fourth bird down and the tail of the third bird down.)

I colored in the birds using a variety of Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I wrapped around some Bermuda Bay ribbon and tied a Linen Thread bow in it.  I adhered the Whisper White cardstock down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I stamped the sentiment from the Bird Banter Stamp Set in Bermuda Bay ink and adhered it also with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Sunshine & Rainbows Birthday

Happy spring!

What more says spring than Rainbows!

Well, first you need rain, and not snow, for rainbows which we have yet to have in Upstate New York, but soon enough we’ll have Sunshine & Rainbows, which is the bundle I used for today’s card.

My card starts off with Thick Whisper White cardstock.

Note: This thick cardstock is perfect when you’re using Whisper White as the base to your card.  It holds up much better and is able to “stand up” unlike the regular Whisper White.

I took Pool Party ink and a brayer to create the inked look behind my rainbow.

I then took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and stamped the sentiment from the Sunshine & Rainbows Stamp Set in Rich Razzleberry ink in the bottom corner.  I added a piece of white sparkly washi tape from the Myths & Magic Specialty Washi Tape on either side of it.

I created my rainbow using the Rainbow Builder  Framelits and Berry Burst, Peekaboo Peach, Daffodil Delight, Old Olive, Island Indigo, Rich Razzlberry, and Sweet Sugarplum cardstock.  I cut the two clouds out of Whisper White cardstock and added a few Clear Epoxy Shapes around the card to finish it off.

Enjoy!


Today’s card was inspired by this week’s challenge at The Paper Players.

Stampin’ Up! We Must Celebrate Birthday

I’m pretty excited about today’s card – mostly because it’s my first post in about a week and a half!

Feels good to be back!

What I love about this card is it’s just stamps, paper, and the watercolor pencils.

I start off with Pool Party cardstock.  I then took a panel of Shimmery White cardstock and stamped the animals and confetti from the We Must Celebrate Stamp Set in Archival Black ink on it.  I then colored them in using the Watercolor Pencils and matted it on Bermuda Bay cardstock.

I stamped the sentiment from the We Must Celebrate Stamp Set on a piece of Pool Party cardstock and adhered it on the card.

Enjoy!
