Stampin’ Up! Birthday Card

This is what I call a smorgasbord of a card.
I literally uses a little of this and a little of that.

I designed this card for a specific friend in mind and tried to tailor it to her.  She loves butterflies, the color hot pink, bling, and flowers.

Ironically enough I (unintentionally) basically did the same color combination as this card here.

My card starts off with Coastal Cabana cardstock which I embossed using the Petal Pair Embossing Folder.

Next I used the Rectangle Stitched Framelits and cut out two patterns from the Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper, layering one of the other.

Next I stamped the sentiment from the Picture Perfect Birthday Stamp Set in Lovely Lipstick ink on Whisper White cardstock and cut it out using the Stitched Shapes Framelits.  I cut out a scalloped circle from Lovely Lipstick Foil Sheet using the Layering Circle Framelits.

Next I used the Dark and Light Lovely Lipstick Stampin’ Blends Markers and colored in two butterflies from the Botanical Butterfly DSP and fussy cut them out.  I adhered them down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

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.
