Stampin’ Up! Seasonal Bells

Today’s card was inspired by this week’s challenge over at Pals Paper Arts.

ppa-318-sep15

I start my card off today using Wild Wasabi as a base and then layer it with Whisper White on So Saffron.  I used a pattern from the Fruit Stand DSP and layered it on some So Saffron cardstock and stamped the sentiment which is from Scenic Sayings stamp set in Wild Wasabi.

I really enjoyed creating this ribbon the other day, so I decided to do another fun twisting ribbon detail, this time using the burlap.  Next I used the Seasonal Bells Stamp Set which I stamped in Versamark and heat embossed it white.  I cut them out using the bundle’s coordinating Bell Punch and tied them together using Linen Thread.

To finish off the card, I added a few Enamel Dots in Wild Wasabi.

Enjoy!

Botanical Builder Hello

Happy Monday!

Today’s card share is inspired by this week’s color challenge over at Pals Paper Arts and layout challenge over at Freshly Made Sketches.FMS Final 247-001PPA311My card starts with a base of Smoky Slate.  I left it there and decided to keep a clean, crisp card.

Botanical Builder - Stamp It Up With Jaimie

I used the Botanical Builder Thinlits to create the flower gathering in the corner.  I used Whisper White, Pink Pirouette, and Marina Mist colors to build them.

Lastly, I tied some Thick Whisper White Baker’s Twine behind the flowers and added the Hello sentiment from the Banners for You Bundle.

Thoughtful Banners – Words

Words are so strong.  When Will and I were in children’s ministry we did a whole lesson on how our mouth is the strongest muscle we have because it has the power of life and death.

I wanted words to speak loud and clear for today’s card – Edifying and encouraging words.  Ironically enough as I was making this card, my 10-year-old came in and begged me to let her keep this card.  She loved the words on it.

My card starts with a base of Emerald Envy.  I dry embossed some Crumb Cake with the Polka Dot embossing folder and layered it over some Whisper White and adhered it over the Emerald Envy.

Thoughtful Banners - Stamp It Up With Jaimie

To create my circles, I used three different sizes from the Layering Circles Framelits and the next larger sized scalloped circle in Emerald Envy.  I took three words from the Thoughtful Banners Stamp Set and first stamped in the center the word in Emerald Envy.  Then I used the same word, this time stamping in Crumb Cake, around it.  Under the middle circle I added some burlap just for some texture.

Thoughtful Banners - Stamp It Up With Jaimie - Stampin Up

For the inside of my card, I covered over the top of one of the stamps from One Big Meaning (leaving just the “You” exposed) and inked it in Emerald Envy.  I then removed the washi tape and stamped the “You” in the center of the inside.

Enjoy!

I started with a base color of Sahara Sand and then layered it with Island Indigo, Whisper White, and Sweet Sugarplum.

Next I took one of the flowers from the Flourishing Phrases Stamp Set and stamped it in the corresponding color that it overlapped (Island Indigo over Island Indigo and Sweet Sugarplum over Sweet Sugarplum).

Suite Sayings - Stampin Up - Stamp It Up With Jaimi

I then heat embossed in white the sentiment from the Suite Sayings and adhered some Island Indigo Baker’s Twine and Silver Sequins around the top.  When adhering the color panels to the Sahara Sand, I used dimensionals to give the Island Indigo and Sweet Sugarplum a lift.

Enjoy!

I started with Night of Navy as my base and layered with Whisper White.

For the left hand corner, I layered Mint Macaron over Sahara Sand and then stamped the dotted stamp from the Swirly Bird Stamp Set in Mint Macaron.

I added the Happy Birthday sentiment from the Balloon Celebration Stamp Set with a retired ribbon behind in Mint Macaron.

PPA #288

Happy Wednesday!  Hope you’re having a crafttistic (get it, craft – fantastic) week so far!  It’s been one of those weeks for me and I have to say that sneaking away into my craft room to whip up some cards has kept my head clear.

Today’s layout comes from the Paper Pals #288 Challenge.  With March birthdays looming around the corner, I’ll be in full birthday card mode for a while now.

PPA-288-Feb18

I started off with a background of Watermelon Wonder layered with Whisper White and Blushing Bride.  I used the beautiful Birthday Bouquet DSP as my center focus, as well as the vertical strip layered over it.

Happy Birthday - Stamp It Up With Jaimie

I love detail.  Detail, detail, detail.  Even more so, I love hidden detail (or at least detail that isn’t jumping out at you).  I used the Butterfly Thinlit Dies to create the butterflies.  I first made one in Blushing Bride, layered it with one in Watermelon Wonder, and then layered them both with a smaller butterfly, also from the Butterfly Thinlit Dies in vellum.  Over top I used a strip of Pearl Basic Jewels.

Just as a final touch, I used some Silver Metallic Thread wrapped a few times underneath the butterfly.

Butterfly - Stamp It Up With Jaimie

My sentiment, “Happy Birthday” comes from the Balloon Celebration Stamp Set and is stamped in Old Olive.  Underneath is a sliver of Vellum paper.

Enjoy!
