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!

Happy New Year’s Eve everyone!!!

I hope 2019 brings you lots of fun memories and love and, of course, lots of stamping.

My card today is a super simple birthday card.  The best part of the Occasions Catalog is that it easily coordinates with product from the Annual Catalog.

My card starts off with Basic Black cardstock.  I then took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and matted it on Lemon Lime Twist cardstock.

Next I took two patterns from the Broadway Bound Designer Series Paper and matted the one on Melon Mambo cardstock and the other on Basic Black cardstock.

I stamped the sentiment from the Amazing Life Stamp Set (available Jan 3) in Versamark ink on Melon Mambo cardstock, sprinkled it with Black Embossing Powder, and heat set it.  I fussy cut out the cupcake and adhered it with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Enjoy!

SNEAK PEEK Humming Along Stamp Set

Today’s card uses a new stamp set and new Designer Series Paper!

These are items from the 2019 Occasions Catalog and will be available to customers January 3rd.

I received both the stamp set and paper for free at OnStage this past weekend and I couldn’t wait to crack them open.

My card today starts off with Daffodil Delight cardstock which I layered with a pattern from the Gingham Gala Designer Series Paper.

The Gingham Gala Designer Series Paper is 6″x6″ paper and includes four colors: Balmy Blue, Daffodil Delight, Grapefruit Grove, Highland Heather, and Lemon Lime Twist.  One side is a wider gingham and the backside a tighter gingham.

Next I stamped the flower in Memento Black ink on Whisper White cardstock.  It comes from the Humming Along Stamp Set which also features a hummingbird, a leaf, and great sentiments.  It coordinates with the Hummingbird Framelits Dies.

I colored the hibiscus in using the Light Lovely Lipstick (inner part of flower), Light Flirty Flamingo (to blend the pink and yellow together), Dark and Light Daffodil Delight, and Granny Apple Green (stem and leaf) Stampin’ Blends Markers.

I stamped the sentiment next to it in Memento Black ink.  I matted this on Lovely Lipstick cardstock and wrapped some Granny Apple Green ribbon around it.

Enjoy!


Today’s card was inspired by this week’s Global Design Project challenge.
