Stampin’ Up! Cake Soiree Celebrate Card

I am having so much fun playing with all the new Occasions Catalog goodies.

The bundle used today, the Cake Soiree Bundle, was one I received for free from my upline.  We really do have the best team.  Everyone’s so supportive and encouraging and along the way we get some prize patrol.  Talk to me, we’d love to have you join and now’s the best time!!

My card today starts off with Marina Mist cardstock.  I then matted a piece of Whisper White cardstock on some Powder Pink cardstock.

I then cut out three squares using the Layering Squares Framelits, one in Silver Foil and two in Powder Pink.  Before adhering down the bigger silver square, I tucked behind it some Whisper White Organza Ribbon…and let me tell you – this ribbon is gorgeous!

I then used the Cake Soiree Bundle (stamp set and coordinating framelits) to stamp and cut out a cake (Powder Pink ink) and various flowers and leaves (Rich Razzleberry, Berry Burst, Marina Mist, Old Olive inks).

I stamped the sentiment from the Cake Soiree Stamp Set in Versamark ink on the cake, sprinkled it with silver embossing powder, and heat embossed it using the heat tool.  You’ll notice I’m missing the little line that comes down from the sentiment.  I covered it with some Washi Tape so it wouldn’t get inked up.  I added a few Silver Enamel dots in the corner to finish it off.

Enjoy!

Today’s card was (loosely) inspired by this week’s Sunday Stamps Challenge.

Stampin’ Up! Sunshine & Rainbows Card

I don’t know about where you are, but it is bitter cold here in Upstate New York, so I’ll do just about anything to get some sunshine and warmth.

My card today did just that for me using the Sunshine & Rainbows Stamp Set.

I start out with Tempting Turquoise cardstock.  Next I matted a piece of Soft Sky cardstock on Whisper White cardstock.

I created my clouds and rainbow using the Sunshine & Rainbows Bundle and Berry Burst, Peekaboo Peach, Daffodil Delight, Wild Wasabi, Tempting Turquoise, Sweet Sugarplum, and Rich Razzleberry cardstock for the rainbow and Whisper White and vellum cardstock for the clouds.

I stamped the sentiment from the Sunshine & Rainbows Stamp Set in Berry Burst ink and adhered it using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Clear Epoxy Circles over the clouds.

Enjoy!

Today’s card was inspired by this week’s Freshly Made Sketches Challenge.

Stampin’ Up! Pocketful of Sunshine

Happy Occasions and Sale-a-bration Catalogs day!!
Yes, I’m making it a holiday.

To celebrate, I’m offering Double Star Rewards now through January 11th!

If you’re not familiar with my Star Rewards:

  • For every increment of $25 in an order (before tax and shipping), you receive 1 star
  • Once you’ve received 12 stars, you earn a free $30 order through me!

    • e.g., $75 order earns you *6 stars which gets you halfway to that free $30 order

You can print your sheet out here.

For today’s card I pulled out a bundle I haven’t used in such a long time – the Pocketful of Sunshine Bundle.

I started out with Basic Gray cardstock and then adhered a narrow panel of Calypso Coral cardstock down the middle of it.  I took a panel from the Bubbles & Fizz DSP (free in the Sale-a-bration catalog) and matted it on a piece of Lemon Lime Twist cardstock and adhered it to the card front.

I stamped the pocket image in Memento Black Ink on a piece of Bermuda Bay cardstock and then stamped the money image in Memento Black Ink on a piece of Lemon Lime Twist cardstock.  I also stamped a little tag in Memento Ink on Bermuda Bay cardstock.  I cut everything out with the coordinating Pocket Framelits.

I stamped the first part of the sentiment in Versamark ink on the pocket, sprinkled it with white embossing powder, and heat embossed it.  I stamped the “change” in Memento Black ink on Whisper White cardstock, trimmed it down, and adhered it over the pocket.  I adhered the pocket down using Tear & Tape adhesive.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! NEW We Must Celebrate Card

Today’s card was inspired by this week’s Freshly Made Sketches Challenge.

You might look at today’s card and wonder whether it’s really me here…
I assure you that it’s still me.

You see I normally do very little coloring/shading in.  And this is my third card in one week that has coloring!  I’m having so much fun.

I couldn’t help myself and had to get this new We Must Celebrate Stamp SetThese little creatures are so adorable and can be used together, as well as stamped separately.  Today I decided to use the watercolor pencils to color them in, but I can’t wait to try the new Stampin’ Blends!

My card starts off with Crumb Cake cardstock.  I then cut a pattern from the Wood Textures DSP and adhered it to the card front.   I adhered a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock to the top of the card front.  I then stamped the little creatures from the We Must Celebrate Stamp Set in Archival Black ink on a piece of Watercolor Paper.

I used the Watercolor Pencils to color the creatures in.  I also used the Old Olive pencil to add some shading underneath the animals and very light Bermuda Bay above them for a sky.  I then used an Aqua Painter to evenly distribute the color.  I matted this on a piece of Basic Black cardstock and adhered it to the card.

I stamped the sentiment in Archival Black Ink on a panel of Crumb Cake cardstock and adhered it using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! NEW Picture Perfect Birthday

Today’s card uses lots of new product from the 2018 Occasions Catalog!!

Last week’s Facebook Live Tutorial was showing how I made this card and someone even remarked on how quickly it came together.

Great cards come from simple stamping, great patterned paper, and fun texture!

My card starts off with Peekaboo Peach cardstock.  Next I took a piece of Bermuda Bay cardstock (see video for cut sizes) and embossed it using the NEW Simply Stripes embossing folder.  I adhered it on an angle.  Then I took a pattern from the Picture Perfect Party DSP which is full of bright colors and great images and adhered it on the opposite angle.

*The Picture Perfect Party Designer Series Paper is included in my 2018 Occasions Catalog Product Share.  See here for more details!*

Next I cut a strip of Bermuda Bay ribbon to go horizontally across the card.  I added a banner of Lemon Lime Twist cardstock just above that.

Lastly I created my stamped images from the Picture Perfect Birthday stamp set by first stamping the bottom of the candles in Berry Burst, Bermuda Bay, and Lemon Lime Twist and then Peekaboo Peach for the flame (first stamping off for a lighter color).  I then stamped the birthday sentiment in Memento Black ink over the candles.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Birthday Delivery

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

The other day while looking through my ribbons I saw the Rich Razzleberry Stitched Edged Ribbon.  It got me thinking…I couldn’t remember the last time I had used Rich Razzleberry be it in paper, ribbon, ink.  It had been a long while and I really enjoy this color.

So that’s how we got today’s card.

My card starts off with (drum roll please) Rich Razzleberry cardstock.  I then cut a Whisper White cardstock measuring 4″ x 5-1/4″.  I cut a pattern from the Birthday Memories DSP measuring 2-3/4″ x 5-1/8″ and adhered it to the top.  I took a panel of Rich Razzleberry cardstock measuring 1-1/8″ x 5-1/8″ to adhere to the bottom.

I then stamped the sentiment from the Birthday Deliveries Stamp Set in Rich Razzleberry ink on Whisper White cardstock and cut it out using the Stitched Shapes Framelits.  I cut a scalloped oval for it to be matted on from the Layering Ovals Framelits.  Behind that I cut a 1″ Whisper White double banner .

Lastly, I adhered a Rich Razzleberry bow to the left of the oval and added a few Rich Razzleberry enamel dots.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Lift Me Up

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

For today’s card I thought I would take Christmas colors and make a non-Christmas card.

I haven’t used the Lift Me Up stamp set and coordinating framelits in a while and I forgot how much fun they are!!

My card starts off with Pool Party cardstock.  I then took the two larger cloud framelits and cut out clouds from the Pool Party.  I adhered a panel of Whisper White cardstock behind the clouds.

Next I stamped out different balloons in Real Red, Emerald Envy, and Pool Party ink and cut them out using the Up & Away Framelits.  I arranged them in different spots along the left side of the card.

I wrapped around some Pool Party Baker’s Twine in a bow.  Next I stamped the birthday sentiment in Emerald Envy ink on Whisper White.  I cut the two lines apart and attached them using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered behind the birthday sentiment a piece of a white doily.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up Lemon Zest Birthday

Today’s card was inspired by this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

I’m taking another short break from autumn and Christmas cards today (don’t worry I’ll be back at it tomorrow 🙂

I’m always in need of birthday cards and I find during this season I’m always short because I’m not making them as often.

My card today starts off with Tempting Turquoise cardstock.  I love this color paired with the Daffodil Delight – so bright and yummy!  I then stamped the lemon image from the Lemon Zest stamp set over the card front in Soft Sky ink.

Next I took a panel of Daffodil Delight cardstock and embossed it using the Seaside embossing folder.  I matted it on Whisper White cardstock and adhered it to the card front.  I took a panel of Tempting Turquoise cardstock, stamped the sentiment from the Lemon Zest stamp set in Versamark ink, sprinkled it with white embossing powder, and heat embossed it.  I matted this on Whisper White cardstock and adhered it to the card front.

Next I used the Lemon Zest stamp set and coordinating punch to create my lemons.  Ironically enough, my Daffodil Delight ink pad is in need of re-inking so it actually gave this nice gradient look to the stamped image which I really liked.

Enjoy!
