Stampin’ Up! Stitched All Around Birthday Card

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

Tomorrow is my baby girl’s birthday.  She’s turning 9!

I always decorate the house with balloons and streamers the night before while they’re sleeping so they wake up to it.  I always do it in “their colors” and make a coordinating card.

Well, this year my daughter has announced she likes black and purple.

Be sure to head over and like my Facebook page as I’ll post pictures tomorrow of the decorations.

My card for her 9th birthday starts off with Highland Heather cardstock.  I then took a panel of Gorgeous Grape cardstock and embossed it with the Dot To Dot embossing folder.  I matted it on Basic Black cardstock.

Next I used the Stitched All Around Bundle to cut out the beautifully stitched die cut from Whisper White cardstock and stamped the sentiment in Gorgeous Grape ink.

I wound some Black Trim behind the sentiment and adhered everything down using Stampin Dimensionals.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Incredible Like You Card

Happy New Year everyone!!!

Did you stay up to watch the ball drop last night?
My family and I did, but then went straight to bed.  New Year’s Eve is such a fun holiday.

I hope this year brings you lots of joy and laughter and, of course, lots of stamping and crafting!!!

My card today starts off with Lovely Lipstick cardstock which I embossed using the Sparkle embossing folder.

I then took a pattern from the 2018-2020 Designer Series Paper (the Pineapple Punch one), matted it on Whisper White cardstock, and adhered it to the card front.

Next I used the Incredible Like You stamp set (available Jan 3) and made a flower.  I stamped the inside in Pineapple Punch ink and then stamped the petal image multiple times all around it in Melon Mambo (stamping off for the lighter shade).  I fussy cut this out and adhered some Lovely Lipstick ribbon behind it.

Lastly, I stamped the sentiment in Lovely Lipstick ink, again, from the Incredible Like You stamp set.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! CAS Birthday Card

Happy New Year’s Eve everyone!!!

I hope 2019 brings you lots of fun memories and love and, of course, lots of stamping.
Be safe tonight!

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!


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

Stampin’ Up! – Hearts Come Home Card

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

Today I decided to make a winter card.
Just because Christmas is over doesn’t mean winter cards are and the Hearts Come Home Stamp Set has such a cozy feel to it.

My card starts off with Blackberry Bliss cardstock.

Next I took a pattern from the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper.  I used the Hearts Come Home Stamp Set and stamped the sentiment in Versamark ink.  I sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder and heat set it.

I then matted this on Whisper White cardstock and adhered it to the card front.

Next I used the Hearts Come Home Stamp Set and stamped the houses in Blackberry Bliss, trees in Pear Pizzazz (stamping off for some), and Gray Granite for the smoke.  I matted this on Gray Granite cardstock and adhered it just below the sentiment.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! *NEW Itty Bitty Birthdays Card

The Itty Bitty Birthdays Stamp Set is one I received for free at OnStage in November.

It’s a great stamp set with a nice variety of sentiments for birthday cards – lots of options!

It will be available in the 2019 Occasions Catalog beginning Jan 3, 2019!

My card today starts off with Night of Navy cardstock.  I then took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and stamped the sentiment “Let’s Celebrate You” from the Itty Bitty Birthdays Stamp Set in Night of Navy ink in two of the corners.

Next I adhered a pattern from the Happiness Blooms Designer Series Paper.

*This paper is included in my Product Share!!!  You’ll definitely want a sampling of all the new paper.  More details below!

Next I stamped the “Let’s Celebrate You” in Call Me Clover ink and the “Birthday Wishes” in Night of Navy ink, again from the Itty Bitty Birthdays Stamp Set.

Lastly, I used Call Me Clover Ribbon and Linen Thread to adhere underneath the sentiment.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Hello Cupcake – Sale-A-Bration Stamp

This week’s blog hop is a joint blog hop with the Happy Stampers.  Happy hopping!

My card starts off with Thick Whisper White cardstock.  I then took a panel of Calypso Coral cardstock and used the new to the 2019 Sale-A-Bration Catalog Hello Cupcake Stamp Set and stamped the “Celebrate Your Day” across it in Calypso Coral ink.

Next I used the Layering Circles Framelits and cut out a Coastal Cabana scalloped circle and a Whisper White circle.

I stamped the bottom of the cupcake from the Hello Cupcake Stamp Set in Smoky Slate ink directly on the Whisper White circle.  I stamped the top in Coastal Cabana ink on a separate piece of Whisper White cardstock and fussy cut it out, adhering it over the bottom using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Underneath the circles I adhered some Whisper White Jute Ribbon and Calypso Coral ribbon, both available in the 2019 Occasions Catalog beginning Jan 3.  Lastly I used the Dark Calypso Coral Stampin’ Blends Marker and colored a Heart Epoxy Droplet.

Stampin’ Up! First Frost Best Wishes

Getting time to stamp is very important to me.
It’s a stress reliever and also a way to have some “me time.”

So when life gets super busy especially a week out from Christmas, it can be challenging for anyone to find time to stamp.

So in order to get stamping time, I keep cards and projects a little on the simpler side…

My card today starts off with Crumb Cake cardstock which I embossed using the Pinewood Planks embossing folder.

Next I took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and stamped the image from the First Frost stamp set in Soft Sea Foam ink and then matted it on Soft Sea Foam cardstock.

Lastly I stamped the sentiment from the Petal Palette stamp set in Versamark ink on Basic Black cardstock, sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder, and heat set it.

Enjoy and I hope you find time to stamp today, even if it’s a super simple something.   🙂
