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!!

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.

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,

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! Colorful Seasons HSS 331 Card

I really stretched myself for today’s card.

I have to admit it’s not one I would normally make.
But I was really inspired by one of the pictures in the new Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge (the upper left corner).

This is a fun winter challenge, so be sure to play along!

My card starts off with Night of Navy cardstock.

I then took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and used a brayer to color over it.  I used Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo, Blueberry Bushel, and Night of Navy ink.  I then matted this on Whisper White cardstock.

Next I used the Seasonal Layers Dies and cut out snowflakes from Whisper White cardstock.  I stamped the sentiment from the Colorful Seasons Stamp Set in Melon Mambo ink and cut it out using the Stitched Rectangles Dies.  I added some rhinestones around to finish it off.

Enjoy!
