Stampin’ Up! Joyful Nativity

Good morning.

I know I’ve done it before, but I just love the effect so much that I did it again here – I stamped in Night of Navy on the Night of Navy cardstock the star stamp from the Christmas Pines stamp set as a background.

joyful-nativity-stamp-it-up-with-jaimieI then offset from one another a piece of Silver Foil Sheet and another piece of Night of Navy cardstock (matted on Whisper White).  On the Night of Navy I stamped the Joy from the Joyful Nativity stamp set in Versamark, sprinkled white embossing powder on it, and heat embossed it.  I also did the same stamping for the angel, this time fussy cutting her out, and attaching it with a dimensional.

joyful-nativity-stamp-it-up-with-jaimie-stampin-up

I knew I wanted to use the phrase “To The World” with the Joy, but decided to make it myself using the Labeler Alphabet Stamp Set.  To finish it off I added a few Silver Enamel Dots.

Enjoy!

Hello My Friend – Jar Of Love

I had a lot of fun with today’s card.  Whenever a friend calls and I answer the phone, I usually say “Hello My Friend.”  It’s just what I say.  At this point it would be weird saying anything else.  So, it’s what inspired me for today’s card.

My card today uses Wild Wasabi as a base and layers it with Very Vanilla.  I then used a pattern from the Fruit Stand DSP to layer over that.  I cut two strips of banners, in Soft Sky (1-1/2″) and Wild Wasabi (2″) using the Triple Banner Punch.

jar-of-love-stamp-it-up-with-jaimieI next created my jar and fish.  I stamped the jar in Wild Wasabi using the Jar of Love stamp set and stamped the water in Soft Sky.  I then stamped the little goldfish in Pumpkin Pie.  The bundle is great because it makes cutting them out a synch with the coordinating framelits.

jar-of-love-stamp-it-up-with-jaimie-stampin-up

Lastly, I created my sentiment using the Labeler Alphabet.  This wasn’t a stamp set I bought right away, but I found myself wanting to use certain sentiments which didn’t exist and wanted to create my own.

A little Labeler Alphabet hint (which may seem obvious to everyone else), but you can’t just take the letters and line them up to create a word.  You really have to stamp letter by letter.

My letters were stamped in Pumpkin Pie and I added a few Enamel Dots in Pumpkin Pie and Soft Sky and I placed them over a backdrop of Vellum.

Enjoy!

Today’s card was inspired by the challenges over at What Will You Stamp and Global Design Project.

Stampin’ Up! Penned & Painted

Today’s card was inspired by this week’s challenge at Global Design Project which happens to be a CASE the Designer challenge.  If you’re not familiar, the term to “CASE” stands for to Copy and Selectively Edit.

gdp056

What inspired me about the card being cased are the happy colors and the overall layout.

Here’s what I came up with…

I used Marina Mist as the base for my card and layered it with the yummy Whisper White – yes, yummy.  Stampin Up’s white cardstock is like no other.

penned-painted-stamp-it-up-with-jaimie

I used the Penned & Painted Stamp Set to stamp two flowers and leaves.  This stamp set is really fun to use because it’s two-step, which gives depth to the image.  One of the flowers was stamped in Marina Mist, the other in Flirty Flamingo, and the leaves in Old Olive.

penned-painted-stamp-it-up-with-jaimie-stampin-up

Next I created a little detail at the top of my card using the Flirty Flamingo Ruched Ribbon and Thick White Baker’s Twine bow.  I originally didn’t plan on adding the enamel dots, but I had a small smudge that needed to be covered.  So, to finish off the card, I used enamel shapes to scattered over the card.

The sentiment comes from the Better Together Stamp Set and was stamped in Flirty Flamingo.

Enjoy!

GDP Birthday

For today’s card I was inspired by the Case the Designer challenge over at Global Design Project this week.  When I saw the card to be cased, I really liked the colors used, as well as the overall layout.

GDP048

My card today has Crumb Cake as it’s base.  This is one of my favorite colors I have to say!!  I then layered Whisper White over some Old Olive (another one of my favorite colors).  I then used the Balloon Celebration Stamp Set to create my pattern.  I stamped the wheel-like stamp in Flirty Flamingo, Old Olive, and Daffodil Delight throughout the Whisper White.

Balloon Celebration - Stamp It Up With Jaimie

Next I stamped my sentiment, Happy Birthday,  also from the Balloon Celebration Stamp Set, in Flirty Flamingo and layered it over some Flirty Flamingo cardstock.  Before adhering this layer to the Crumb Cake I tucked in behind it some Flirty Flamingo Ruched Ribbon.

Enjoy!

Nautical Birthday

Happy almost weekend!  Hope you have a lovely weekend ahead!

Today’s card inspiration comes from the Global Design Project challenge this week – Nautical.  While I don’t have any stamp that screams nautical – I do have this cute little boat on what I’ll call the ocean.

GDP047My card today starts off with Thick Whisper White.  I then layered some more Whisper White over Pacific (fitting right?) Point.

To start I used some Sponge Daubers to color the background, the top in Daffodil Delight to mimic a sun and the bottom in Dapper Denim to mimic the ocean. Next I used the “wavy” thinlits from the Swirly Bird Bundle to create the rest of my ocean, cutting out a piece in Pacific Point and Island Indigo, layering one over the other.

Swirly Bird - Stamp It Up With Jaimie

Next I created my boat by stamping the base in Crumb Cake and the top in Peekaboo Peach, fussy cutting them, and then adhering them just above the ocean.  I cut a small piece of Linen Thread and adhered it between the two masts and added a Pacific Point flag to the top of it.  Then I stamped in Pacific Point the sentiment (from the Sunshine Sayings Stamp Set) and adhered it as another flag.

Enjoy!

Black, White, and Melon Mambo Card!

Last week I made a black and white card (with a hint of Bermuda Bay) and today I’m bringing you another black and white card, this time with a hint of Melon Mambo and Smoky Slate.  I’m really liking these colors together (thank you Global Design Project).

GDP045_Colour_Challenge

I started with a base of Basic Black and then layered it with some Smoky Slate.  Over the Smoky Slate, I strung around some Melon Mambo Thick Baker’s Twine.  Next I layered some Basic Black over Melon Mambo over some Whisper White.

Banners For You - Stamp It Up With Jaimi

First I stamped my sentiment (so I had a gauge of space and size for the flowers) in Melon Mambo on Whisper White.  The banners and sentiments com from the Banners For You Bundle.  This bundle is great because it really allows you to create different phrases for your sentiment.  I built my phrase using 5 separate phrases.

Banners For You - Stamp It Up With Jaimi

For my flowers, I used the various flower stamps in the Banners For You Bundle and stamped them above and below the banner in Versarmark.  (I first drew lines in pencil that could be erased so I knew whereabouts to put them.)  I heat embossed the flowers in white using the heat tool.  To adhere the banner, I used dimensionals to give it a bit of a lift.

Enjoy!

Better Together Birthday

I have to say the Better Together Stamp Set is one of my favorite/must-haves from the new annual catalog.  It has a total of 19 images with great sentiments that can be paired together or used on their own, as well as some fun images.

For my layout, I’m playing along with the CAS(E) this Sketch challenge for my layout and loosely the Global Design Project challenge for my colors (as I could’ve sworn the Sweet Sugarplum was actually said Pink Pirouette, oh well).

Gdp041

For my card share, I started with a base of Night of Navy and layered it with Whisper White.  I then took out the Better Together Stamp Set to create my pattern of party hats in Night of Navy and Pink Pirouette.

Better Together-Stamp It Up With Jaimi

The sentiment is stamped in Night of Navy and I added a few (yet retired) Pink Pirouette candy dots to complete the card.

Enjoy!

Updates & Father’s Day Card

It’s that time of the year (well almost at least) and Father’s Day is right around the corner.  End of the school year is a bit crazy around here, so I was glad to be able to say that this card is done and ready.

For today’s card I started with some Thick Whisper White.  I layered 2/3 of the card with Tip Top Taupe and the other 1/3 with Island Indigo.  I then cut a strip of Mint Macaron to cover the seam.

I then placed a pattern of Tip Top Taupe from the Cherry on Top DSP over the left of the card matted in Whisper White.

Going Global - Stamp It Up With Jaimie

I took my inspiration for this card’s layout from the Mojo Monday challenge and the color scheme from the Global Design Project challenge.

I then used the Going Global stamp set to stamp the world in Island Indigo and the sentiment in Mint Macaron matted over Tip Top Taupe.

Global Design Project #026

For today’s card, I went simple and sweet.

My color inspiration came from the Sunday Stamps Challenge this week and my layout inspiration from the Global Design Project challenge.

ssc121Sketch Challenge

I started with a base color of Blushing Bride and layered it with a beautiful pattern from the English Garden DSP.  I then layered that with Sahara Sand and Whisper White.  On the Whisper White I stamped two balloons (stamping off first) in Blushing Bride and Sahara Sand.

Happy Birthday - Stamp It Up With Jaimie

Both my balloons the sentiment, “Happy Birthday,” come from the Balloon Celebration Stamp Set.  I had a little bow from Blushing Bride Baker’s Twine on the punched balloon. I punched the sentiment in a scalloped oval and used dimensionals to give it a bit of lift, as well as on the one balloon.

Enjoy!
