Stampin’ Up! Party Puffins Birthday Card

You know when you tell yourself you don’t NEED that stamp set…
and then you see everyone making the most adorable cards with it and suddenly you NEED it immediately?!

Am I the only one?
That’s what happened with the Party Puffins Stamp Set and I am so glad I got it!!

Stampin’ Up! Party Puffins Birthday Card

My card starts off with Bermuda Bay cardstock which I covered with a pattern from the Snail Mail Designer Series Paper.

**The Snail Mail Designer Series Paper is retiring and only available right now while supplies last! So don’t wait!!

Stampin’ Up! Party Puffins Birthday Card

I then took a panel of Basic White cardstock and used the Stamparatus to stamp the puffin in Memento Black ink.

I used the Stamparatus because I wanted a really dark, crisp stamped image and would highly recommend using it if you’re stamping with the Party Puffins Stamp.

Stampin’ Up! Party Puffins Birthday Card

On a separate piece of Basic Black, I stamped three fish, the puffin with the party hat, and the sentiment. I colored everything in using the Bermuda Bay, Pumpkin Pie, and Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends Markers,

Stampin’ Up! Party Puffins Birthday Card

I fussy cut the fish out and the party hat off and adhered them down. I then added a few rhinestones around the fish.

Stampin’ Up! Plentiful Plants Thank You Card

It’s Friday!!!!

Who’s doing a little happy – or big – dance today?!

I have a great card to share with you today, but be sure to check out something super fun and exciting coming up – all the details are at the bottom of this post. Hint: It involves this suite of product!

Stampin! Up! Plentiful Plants Thank You Card

My card today starts off with Mint Macaron cardstock, which I embossed using the Macrame Embossing Folder.

Stampin! Up! Plentiful Plants Thank You Card

I then matted a pattern from the Bloom Where You’re Planted Designer Series Paper on Basic White cardstock.

Stampin! Up! Plentiful Plants Thank You Card

I used the Plentiful Plants Bundle to create my plants. I stamped the pots in Flirty Flamingo ink for a pop of color and the plants in Mint Macaron and Pear Pizzazz ink. I cut them out, along with the macrame holders using the coordinating Perfect Plants Dies and adhered them down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin! Up! Plentiful Plants Thank You Card

I stamped the sentiment from the Plentiful Plants Stamp Set in Flirty Flamingo Ink and cut it out with the Stitched Rectangles Dies, adhering it down with Dimensionals.

Lastly, I added a few Genial Gems around the plants.

Stampin’ Up! Right Behind You Card

Sometimes when you don’t know what to say, a card does the job.

The Right Behind You Stamp has some really great sentiments of encouragement and friendship and helps make the perfect card to send to show your love and support!

I used it for this week’s Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop sketch challenge.

My card starts off with Thick Basic White cardstock.

Stampin’ Up! Right Behind You Card

I then took a panel of Garden Green cardstock and cut the hill using the Basic Borders Dies. I did this first so I would know placement of the bicycle.

Stampin’ Up! Right Behind You Card

Using the Stamparatus, I stamped the bicycle and flowers above the hill.

I used the Stamparatus: A) Because I knew it would take a few goes with the Memento Black Ink Pad to get perfect coverage and a crisp look and B) Because I could stamp the bicycle and flowers exactly where they needed to go.

Stampin’ Up! Right Behind You Card

I colored the images in using: Polished Pink (shirt and flowers), Fresh Freesia (shirt and flowers), Ivory (skin), Crumb Cake (hair), Daffodil Delight (hair), and Pale Papaya (flowers) Stampin’ Blends Markers.

Stampin’ Up! Right Behind You Card

I then wound around some Linen Thread into a bow. I stamped the sentiment from the Right Behind You Stamp Set in Memento Black ink on Basic White cardstock and cut it out with the Stitched Rectangles Dies.

Stampin’ Up! Art in Bloom Happy Card

You might’ve seen by now that I LOVE-LOVE-LOVE the Art in Bloom Bundle.

Mostly because it’s a trio bundle (stamps, dies, embossing folder) and I think you get a lot of value from it.

I first made a wedding card that you can see here and then I made a friendship card (with video tutorial) that you can see here. Today I bring you another card which I equally love.

Stampin’ Up! Art in Bloom Card

Today’s card starts off with Just Jade cardstock, on which I adhered a Just Jade pattern from the 2020-2022 In Colors Designer Series Paper.

Stampin’ Up! Art in Bloom Card

I then took a panel of Basic White cardstock and stamped the other floral image in Bumblebee ink and then the inside floral image in the same, but stamping off first. I then ran this through the Bloom Hybrid Embossing Folder and adhered it to the card front.

Stampin’ Up! Art in Bloom Card

Using the dies in the bundle, I cut out Bumblebee flowers to go around the stamped flowers.

Stampin’ Up! Art in Bloom Card

Next I stamped the sentiment in Just Jade ink on Mint Macaron cardstock, cut it out with the same dies, and adhered down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin’ Up! Masculine Biggest Wish Birthday Card

For this week’s color challenge, I’m using the Biggest Wish Stamp Set to make a birthday card!

This stamp set has quickly become a favorite because of its big, chunky words that can really fill a card with lots of color!

This card will actually be my son’s birthday card. His birthday is Sunday and I always enjoy designing a card specifically for each of my kids.

Stampin’ Up! Biggest Wish Birthday Card

My card starts off with Basic Gray cardstock which I covered with a pattern from the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper.

Stampin’ Up! Biggest Wish Birthday Card

I then took a panel of Basic White cardstock and stamped the birthday from the Biggest Wish Stamp Set in Real Red, Basic Gray, Daffodil Delight, and Bermuda Bay ink. I used the Stamparatus to stamp so that I got a perfect, even line of words.

Stampin’ Up! Biggest Wish Birthday Card

I then stamped the happy over in Memento Black ink.

I matted this on Real Red cardstock and then adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin’ Up! Iconic Dies Amazing Card

Most of Stampin’ Up!s dies are part of a bundle – Stamp Set & coordinating Dies.

But the annual catalog includes 9 new dies that although coordinate with lots of other product, aren’t part of a bundle and paired with a specific stamp.

They are:
Basic Borders Dies, Flower Market Dies, Give it a Whirl Dies, Layering Diorama Dies, Picture This Dies, Stitched Greenery Dies, Tailor Made Tags Dies, Warm Wraps Dies, and the Iconic Dies, which I used today.

Actually, if you look quickly through the catalog, you might completely miss them. For me I think it took like five times through the catalog before I saw these Iconic Dies.

The Iconic Dies include great nature images like this bird, leaf, flower, and even bee (see the inside of the card below).

Stampin’ Up! Iconic Dies Card

I decided to cut the images from Basic Black cardstock and give them an ombre background using Blending Brushes and three different colors.

Stampin’ Up! Iconic Dies Card

I made this card live over on YouTube today with tips and tricks for using the Blending Brushes and creating this fun card.

Stampin’ Up! All Things Fabulous Card

Of the five new 2021-2023 In Colors, Fresh Freesia I think is my favorite.

It’s such a hard decision, but I just find myself using it a lot!

Today’s card is one I made a few week’s back for my Tuesday YouTube Live tutorial and is really a simple layout overall, but the sparkle of the shimmer paper and Wink of Stella really elevate it.

Stampin Up All Things Fabulous Birthday Card

My card starts off with Thick Basic White cardstock which I embossed using the Painted Texture Embossing Folder. I then added a little blink over the embossed cardstock using Wink of Stella.

I then used the Ombre Specialty Paper and Fabulous Florals Dies to cut out a shimmer background for my flowers.

Stampin Up All Things Fabulous Birthday Card

I created my florals using Fresh Freesia and Gray Granite ink and the All Things Fabulous Stamp Set. It uses multistep stamping, but really gives a nice shade to the images. I cut it out with the coordinating Fabulous Florals Dies and adhered them down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin Up All Things Fabulous Birthday Card

I stamped the sentiment from the All Things Fabulous Stamp Set in Fresh Freesia ink and cut it out using a die from the Floral Gallery Dies.

Stampin Up All Things Fabulous

Lastly, I added a Fresh Freesia bow and some Rhinestones around the card.

Stampin’ Up! Sweet Symmetry Thinking of You Card

I love our Designer Series Paper. First, it’s double sided so you actually get 12 designs in a pack. Second, it’s all coordinating, meaning you can mix and match the patterns up and don’t have to worry about them matching. Thirdly, they make paper crafting so quick and easy!

I pulled out the Sweet Symmetry Designer Series Paper for this week’s Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop.

My card starts off with Bumblebee cardstock.

Stampin Up Sweet Symmetry

I then took a pattern from the Sweet Symmetry Designer Series Paper and matted it on Night of Navy cardstock.

Stampin Up Sweet Symmetry

I stamped the butterflies from the Butterfly Brilliance Stamp Set in Bumblebee Ink on Basic White cardstock. I then took a Blending Pen and lightly pulled the color all around the butterfly.

*Tip: Be light-handed with the Blending Pen as it’s meant to be used with Watercolor Paper. Don’t go over the same spot more than once.

Stampin Up Sweet Symmetry

I cut the butterflies out using the Brilliant Wings Dies. I sort of fluffed the wings with my hands and adhered down just the body of them using some Tear & Tape.

Stampin Up Sweet Symmetry

I stamped the sentiment from the Beauty of Friendship Stamp Set in Night of Navy ink, cutting it out with the coordinating Beautiful Trees Dies.

Stampin Up Sweet Symmetry

Lastly, I added a few Resin Dots. Thanks for checking out my project today!!!
