Stampin’ Up! Merry Moose Birthday Card

Today I’m sharing a card I made at my October stamp class.

It uses the Merry Moose Stamp Set and the masking technique to take a Christmas card and make it a birthday card.

My card starts off with Crumb Cake cardstock.  Next I took a panel of Mossy Meadow cardstock, embossed it using the Pinewood Plans Embossing Folder, and matted it on Soft Suede cardstock.

I cut out a Whisper White circle using the Stitched Shapes Dies.  I stamped the tree on it in Mossy Meadow ink (stamping off first).  I covered the “Christmas” on the sentiment stamp from the Merry Moose Stamp Set with washi tape.  I inked it up with Cherry Cobbler ink, removed the washi tape, and stamped it on the circle.

I cut out the “birthday” from the Well Written Dies from Cherry Cobbler cardstock.

Next I stamped the outline of the moose in Soft Suede ink and the inside image in Crumb Cake ink.  I cut it out using the Moose Punch.  I stamped the scarf in Cherry Cobbler ink and fussy cut it out.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Rework Layout Harvest Hellos

A few weeks ago I made a Halloween card using the Harvest Hellos Bundle.

I took the same sketch and the stamp set and created a new card for you today.

My card starts off with Crumb Cake cardstock which I embossed using the Tin Tile Embossing Folder.

I then took a square of Cajun Craze cardstock and stamped the pumpkin, stem, and curl on it in Cajun Craze ink.  Underneath it I adhered a Mossy Meadow square.

I stamped the sentiment in Cajun Craze ink on a narrow panel of Very Vanilla cardstock.  I stamped the pumpkin in Cajun Craze, leaf in Mossy Meadow, and stem in Crumb Cake ink on Very Vanilla cardstock and colored them in with the same color Stampin’ Blends Marker.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Simple Painted Harvest Card

I love the Painted Harvest Stamp Set.

It’s one I haven’t used in a bit, but it’s sweet and makes simple cards beautiful.

My card starts off with Mango Melody cardstock which I layered with a Mango Melody pattern from the Brights Designer Series Paper.

Next I took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and first stamped the larger floral image from the Painted Harvest Stamp Set in Daffodil Delight ink.  Over that I stamped the smaller floral image in Mango Melody ink and the center in Soft Suede ink.

I covered the petals with a piece of computer paper and stamped the leaves in Garden Green ink.  I then stamped the sentiment in Soft Suede ink and matted it on Soft Suede cardstock.

Enjoy!


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

Stampin’ Up! Harvest Hellos Halloween Card

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

My card starts off with Basic Black cardstock.

Next I took a square panel of Pumpkin Pie cardstock and stamped the pumpkin, stem, and curl images from the Harvest Hellos Stamp Set in Pumpkin Pie ink.  Underneath it I offset a panel of Whisper White cardstock.

Next I took a small piece of Basic Black cardstock and stamped the sentiment from the Harvest Hellos Stamp Set on it in Versamark ink, sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder, and heat set it.

I stamped the pumpkin image in Pumpkin Pie ink and colored it in using the Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends.  I did the same for the stem and leaf, this time using Crumb Cake.  The pumpkin and stem I cut out using the Apple Builder Punch and the leaf I fussy cut out.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! NEW Technique Part 2

On Wednesday I shared a card that used a really cool technique that I completely accidentally stumbled upon.

I decided to try the same technique and change up the colors.

First up, I used Seaside Spray and Night of Navy on my technique and added Gray Granite to the overall card.

I used the To A Wild Rose stamp set for the sentiment and Stitched Nested Labels Dies to cut it out and then the Very Versailles Stamp Set for the stamped image and the Wild Rose Dies for extra detail.

Next I tried my technique using Pear Pizzazz and Mint Macaron colors.

I again used the To A Wild Rose Stamp Set for the sentiment and the Wild Rose Dies to cut it out, as well as for some extra detail.  I brought in a Garden Lane Designer Series Paper pattern to bring out both colors.

For a detailed look on how to create this technique, check out my YouTube tutorial on it here.

My card starts off with Pool Party cardstock.

I next took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and stamped the bigger floral in Daffodil Delight ink, the smaller floral in Pool Party ink, and the leaves in Old Olive ink.

I wound behind it some Silver Thread and adhered a small panel of Daffodil Delight cardstock down.

Stampin’ Up! CAS It Starts with Art Card

Sometimes you just need a quick CAS (clean and simple) card with a fun sentiment.

The Follow Your Art Suite is perfect for such a card.

My card starts off with Petal Pink cardstock.  Next I layered a pattern from the Follow Your Art Designer Series Paper on Pacific Point cardstock.

Next I used the Nested Stitched Dies to cut out another pattern from the Follow Your Art Designer series Paper.

I stamped the sentiment from the It Starts with Art Stamp Set in Pacific Point ink on Whisper White cardstock.  I cut it out using the Layering Circles Dies and adhered it over a Petal Pink stitched circle which I cut out using the Stitched Shapes Dies.

For the fun of it, I made the same card but this time with Calypso Coral cardstock.

Which is your favorite?

Stampin’ Up! 1 Design, 2 Cards Hold on to Hope

A customer recently requested I make a card using the Hold on to Hope Stamp Set.

I have to admit it’s not one I pull out often, but I’m always up for a challenge (and I love when someone requests something).
Here’s what I came up with…

My card starts off with Pretty Peacock Cardstock which I embossed using the Tin Tile embossing folder.

I matted a panel of Whisper White cardstock on a Silver Foil Sheet and stamped the floral image from the Hold on to Hope Stamp Set in Pretty Peacock on the front.

Next I cut out the solid cross and the detailed one from Pretty Peacock cardstock using the Cross of Hope dies and adhered them over each other.

Lastly I stamped the sentiment in Pretty Peacock ink and cut it out using the same Cross of Hope Dies.

I wanted to see what it would look like if I switched up the colors and this is what I came up with…

Same design, just reversed the colors around.

Enjoy!


The Daisy Lane Stamp Set and Medium Daisy Punch are a great addition to your collection.  They coordinate perfectly with the returning Daisy Delight Stamp Set and Daisy Punch and offer so many possibilities.

If you purchase the Daisy Lane Stamp Set between now and July 20th through my store, I will e-mail you four free video tutorials using the Daisy Lane Stamp Set.  These will include tutorials to make three cards and one gift item.

If you purchase the Daisy Lane Bundle, I will mail you the product needed to make one of each of the four projects.  Please note that per Stampin’ Up! policy I can’t mail any stamped items.  The necessary cardstock will be included, but you will need to stamp these images.
