Staqmpin’ Up! Birthday w/ Christmas Cheer

Hello to Saturday! It’s the weekend and I hope you have some fun plans included in your day. Hubby & I got our Moderna booster yesterday and so far, no side effects. A bit of a sore arm, but that’s common with just about any injection. My card for today is for a friend of ours turning 90! He still drives to work. Yes, I did say work. He thrives on people and has a very sharp mind.

Isn’t this fun? I love the colors :O) And since he’s very Irish, the green is perfect. This is also a bit of a fun fold, ‘cuz of the way the top folds in to rest on the sentiment (which is raised on dimensionals). The DSP is Expressions in Ink SDSP (it has gold!)

Supplies:

  • Christmas Cheer Dies (to die cut the word ‘happy’)
  • Biggest Wish stamp set (BIRTHDAY, friend,& happy on inside)
  • Playful Alphabet Dies (# & 90)
  • Artistically Inked stamp set
  • Gilded Gems
  • Foam Adhesive Sheets (adhered to panel of DSP then die cut)
  • Evening Evergreen card stock 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 scored on the long side @ 2 1/8 & 4 1/4. Burnish both inward.
  • Mint Macaron card stock 1 7/8 x 5 3/8; 4 1/8 x 5 3/8
  • Basic White card stock 4 x 5 1/4;1 3/4 x 5 1/4; 1 3/4 x 4 (die cut happy); 1 3/4 x 3 (stitched rectangle die cut w/ word
  • Expressions in Ink SDSP 2 x 5 3/8 front top panel); 1 15/16 x 5 3/8 (lower front panel); 3 1/2 x 1 1/2 (die cut sentiment – happy); 2 1/4 x 6 (envelope flap)
  • Gold Foil Sheets (die cuts for # & 90)
  • Evening Evergreen ink (BIRTHDAY)
  • Mint Macaron ink (background for sentiments)
  • Just Jade ink (inside happy)

Directions:

  • Adhere Adhesive Backed Sheets to Expressions in Ink SDSP
  • With the Christmas Cheer Die, die cut the word ‘happy’. HINT… runt the die through once, turn it over and die cut again. This makes certain the die goes through the layers cleanly.
  • With the Stitched Rectangle Dies, die cut the rectangle in Basic White.
  • Remove the backing on the sentiment ‘happy’ and adhere to the stitched rectangle.
  • Adhere the two front panels of Expressions in Ink SDSP to the card base.
  • With Stampin’ Seal, run two lines of the seal on the lower half of the stitched rectangle; fold front lower panel on score line and adhere to the this lower panel. REMEMBER… the stitched rectangle stands up! Refer to photo.
  • Add two Gilded Gems to the Stitched Rectangle and the front is complete.

For the inside…

  • Adhere the smaller Mint Macaron panel & the similar size Basic White panels together. Attach these to the inside of the card – top
  • Adhere the largest Mint Macaron panel to the lower portion of the inside of the card.
  • With the Basic White inside panel, stamp the ‘splotch’ with Mint Macaron ink using the Artistically Inked stamp set.
  • Stamp the word ‘happy’ in Just Jade ink over this ‘splotch’. The word ‘happy’ comes from Biggest Wish stamp set.
  • On the smallest Basic White panel, stamp another ‘splotch’ in stamped off or 2nd generation Mint Macaron ink.
  • Stamp the word BIRTHDAY from the Biggest Wish stamp set in Evening Evergreen ink.
  • Die cut with another Stitched Rectangle Die.
  • Cut a 3/8 x 5 1/4 strip of Expressions in Ink SDSP and adhere to the Basic White panel.
  • Adhere the stitched Rectangle with dimensionals to the Basic White panel. HINT… this allows the upper fold to stand up :O)
  • Die cut the # sign & the two number 90 from Gold Foil scraps and adhere with liquid glue. These dies come from the Playful Alphabet Dies.
  • Adhere three Gilded Gems and the inside is complete!

For the envelope…

  • Add the Expression in Ink SDSP to the envelope flap
  • On the envelope front, stamp the ‘splotch’ in 2nd generation Mint Macaron ink from the Artistically Inked stamp set.
  • Stamp the word friend in Evening Evergreen ink using the Biggest Wish stamp set. FINIS…

Stampin’ Up! Elegantly Said Birthday

Happy Father’s Day to all the men out there! May you feel loved & appreciated for all you do & are.

Today’s card uses the Elegantly Said bundle, Penned Flowers Dies and the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder plus a few other elements. It incorporates two of the new In Colors ~ Pale Papaya & Soft Succulent which compliment each other nicely.

Elegantly Said Birthday.1

Golly, this photo is d-a-r-k… ugh. I began by running a panel of the Soft Succulent card stock through the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder and adhering it directly to the Soft Succulent card base. Next I added a panel of the 2021-2023 In Color 6×6 DSP in Soft Succulent, to a larger panel of Basic White then wrapped Open Weave Ribbon in Pale Papaya around it and tied a bow, and adhered that with liquid glue as well. I had this floral die cut on my desk for a while – it comes from the Penned Flowers Dies and was die cut from Pale Papaya card stock. I adhered that with dots of liquid glue and added a couple of Genial Gems to the floral centers.

Next I stamped the sentiment from Elegantly Said stamp set onto a Basic White piece then punched it out using the Elegant Tag Punch. I also punched a longer piece in Pale Papaya card stock and adhered the two together to create a banner. I put dimensionals on the back and attached it to the card front. I added three more Genial Gems to the banner (this time in green) and the card front was done.

For the inside I added a 1/2″ wide strip of the same 2021-2023 6×6 In Color DSP to a Basic White panel and adhered it to the inside of the card – no additional sentiment or stamping – and no photo either šŸ˜¦ What was I thinking!!! For the envelope I added a panel of the 2021-2023 6×6 In Colore DSP in Soft Succulent to the envelope flap and voila! Card cuts are listed at the bottom of this post.

Stampin’ Up! Birthday

Today’s card is for my sweetheart of a hubby, his birthday! He loves to sail our little 16′ Bullseye and therefore the Sailing Home stamp set is perfect for a card for him.

Sailing home birthday.1

I started by using the Stitched Rectangle Dies and Beauty of the Earth DSP to create a rectangle, then stamped the sailboat in Misty Moonlight ink and the birds in Smoky Slate ink. I die cut the same size panel in Basic White and adhered it to the back of the panel for strength. I then die cut with the largest of the Stitched Rectangles Dies, a Basic White panel. I stamped the anchor in Smoky Slate ink from the Sailing Home stamp set, then the two sentiments. The ‘Happiest…’ sentiment is from All squared Away stamp set and stamped in Misty Moonlight ink. The other sentiment is from Days to Remember stamp set and done in Smoky Slate ink. I added five retired 2020-2022 Enamel Dots in Misty Moonlight, then wrapped Baker’s Twine from the Essentials Pack around the Basic White panel 2 times and tied a knot. I then adhered the sailboat panel with dimensionals. This Basic White panel also got dimensionals and was added to the card base. The card base is Basic White with a panel of Misty Moonlight card stock adhered with liquid glue. This frames the white panel nicely. Card cuts are listed at the end of the post.

Sailing Home Birthday.2

The inside was kept really simple – using the largest of the Stitched Rectangles dies, cut a panel of Basic White, stamp the sentiment from All Squared Away stamp set in Misty Moonlight ink and adhere with liquid glue to a larger Misty Moonlight panel, then attach to the inside of the card – yep, with liquid glue. And the card is complete… šŸ™‚

For the envelope, I took a piece of Misty Moonlight card stock and ran it through the new Bark 3D embossing folder and attached it to the flap. Love this new folder!!!
