Happy Birthday To You

I needed to create birthday cards for a dear friend and cousin so I decided to use the Sale-a-Bration stamp set Happy Birthday To You and coordinating die.  Although Sale-a-bration ended on March 31st we still have the mini catalog.  I CASED my card from Anna Helman of Scrapping Stamping & Stuff.  I Stamped the birthday image with Smoky Slate and used a blender pen and ink pads to color the image with Petal Pink and Pear Pizzazz.  I also used the Birthday dies to die cut the flowers and the cake with stand.  The paper is from the Parisian Blossoms DSP pack.  So pretty and coordinates so well with the image.  I also die cut the foliage from Silver Glimmer paper and Silver foil then embellished with linen thread and rhinestones.  Difficult to see in the photo but I also colored the flowers and cake with Clear Wink of Stella.

Memorable Tropical Birthday

I have been wanting to stamp with the Tropical Oasis Suite and I finally was able to have the opportunity with the Hand Stamped Sentiments sketch challenge.  Love all the dies and beautiful stamps. I used Cajun Craze for the base and embossed it with the Coastal Weave 3D Embossing Folder inked with StayzOn Saddle Brown.  It beautifully embossed the paper to look like it was woven.  The ink gave the embossing some shadowing.  The flowers and leaves were colored with watercolor pencils, blended with a blender pen then die cut.  I used the the Stitched Rectangles dies for the sentiment.  The ribbon is retired 1-1/4″ Juteband ribbon.  For added sparkle I colored the flowers with Wink of Stella.  It’s difficult to see in the photo.

Lovely Day Paper Pumpkin Alternative Birthday Card

I’m loving the Paper Pumpkin kits!  With the Lovely Day February kit you can make three card versions.  I made one of the cards using the Paper Pumpkin instructions and was then inspired by a friend’s card which she made with the tri-fold card but with a twist.  She made the top part of the tri-fold card for holding a gift card but then added a layer at the back for stamping a birthday sentiment and including a personal note.  My card was also inspired by the Inspiration Challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments.

This Little Piggy Celebrates

‘This Little Piggy’ stamp set is so cute.  It was introduced in the 2017-2018 Catalog and remains one of my favorites.  I used Pretty Peacock ink to stamp the ‘celebrate’ from the retired ‘Thoughtful Banners’ set for the sentiment since I plan on giving this card to a co-worker for her birthday.  The white layer was embossed using the Pinewood Planks 3D folder then layered with Flirty Flamingo and Pretty Peacock cardstock.  The flower I die cut from the Seasonal Layers Thinlits then adhered a Clear Faceted Gem I colored with the dark Pretty Peacock Stampin’ Blend marker.  I was inspired to use the colors of Flirty Flamingo, Mossy Meadow and Pretty Peacock from the Hand Stamped Sentiments Color Challenge

Cheers! It’s your day.

This week my card was inspired by Hand Stamped Sentiments sketch challenge.  I used two fun bundles from the Christmas catalog, Cheers to That and Sip, Sip hooray to create a birthday card.  I used the Tufted 3d Embossing folder for the red layer.  I stamped the glass with black Momento ink and the cosmo and straw I stamped in Real Red and die cut.  I used the circle in the Stitched Shapes  to die cut the white circle layer.  The bubbles in the background and ‘Cheers’ are die cut from silver foil using the Sip, Sip Hooray bundle.  I  used Dazzling Diamonds glitter on the rim of the glass and made a bow from Black 5/8″ (1.6 Cm) Glittered Organdy Ribbon for the stem of the glass.

This card came together very quickly using the bundles.  For some added sparkle I used basic rhinestones on the background.

This is a fun sketch and invite you to join the challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments.  You can also see more inspiration from the design team.

Stampin’ Up Seaside Notions

I love seashells and sea life themed stamp sets so I was excited when I saw the Seaside Notions stamp set in the new catalog.  The seahorse image is my favorite.  I stamped the seahorse and sea shells with Momento Black and colored them with watercolor pencils and blender pen.  I used Pacific Point and Daffodil Delight for the seahorse.  The sea shells I colored with Early Espresso, Calypso Coral and Pacific Point watercolor pencils.

The background is embossed with retired Seaside Embossing folder.  I die cut the mesh background from the Under The Sea dies and also die cut a label from the Stitched Nested Labels set.  The greeting is also from the Seaside Notions stamp set.

My card is based on the Hand Stamped Sentiments sketch challenge.  There is more inspiration for this challenge from the design team.

Good Morning Magnolia

So many stamp sets, so little time.  This is the first time I use the large magnolia flower stamp from the Good Morning Magnolia stamp set.  The flower looks great not colored or with a little color the way I colored it with Flirty Flamingo.  I also used the Clear Wink Stella on the black center and outlines.  For more color, I also used the spatter stamp from the ‘Beauty Abounds’ stamp set behind the flower.  This is a simple card that can be replicated with different layer colors.  I used Blackberry Bliss for the card base and layered with Flirty Flamingo and Whisper White.

This card is also inspired by Hand Stamped Sentiments Inspiration challenge.
