Birthday

Stampin’ Up! You Are Amazing…

Todays card is a fun birthday card made with the You Are Amazing stamp set, but highlighting the Ice Cream Corner DSP. You see, I have a twin brother – ta da – and our birthday is soon – and I wanted a special card for him. He does amazing craftsmanship: woodworking, refinishing, hand carving fish and ducks. And the theme this month for the blog hop is ‘birthday’ so it fits! You are going to see some wonderful cards on the hop today, so let’s get started.

You Are Amazing – #1

My background paper is the Ice Cream Corner DSP and I ran it through the Cut & Emboss machine with the Stitched with Whimsy Dies., then layered it on a panel of Old Olive card stock at an angle, adhering with liquid glue.

In the photos above you can easily see the Stitched with Whimsy Dies markings. It doesn’t cut the paper, but embosses it – such a fun treatment!

Next I stamped the sentiment ‘happy birthday’ from the stamp set You Are Amazing in Bermuda Bay ink on Soft Sea Foam card stock then cut it apart. Each letter of the word ‘happy’ was adhered to a different color of card stock with liquid glue: h on Bermuda Bay, A on Soft Sea Foam, large p on Pear Pizzazz, small p on Old Olive and the y on Pool Party. I then die cut the banner from Sahara Sand card stock using the Floral Heart Dies. This is such a cool banner! It’s too bad it’s so covered.

The word ‘birthday’ was still lying on my desk, so I adhered it to a strip of Basic White card stock with liquid glue and trimmed the ends. I also had a thin strip of the Ice Cream Corner DSP that I used for the background on the card and just turned it over for the extra fun dots and great coordination, and adhered it to the back of the Basic White to set it off.

I adhered the Sahara Sand banner to the card front with liquid glue, folding in the ends then began placing the individual ‘happy’ letters , some going over others and some under ~ all adhered with liquid glue. The ‘birthday’ strip was added with dimensionals on the bottom half and a bit of liquid glue to attach to the banner. You can clearly see, the small p was the last letter to be attached. The completed front panels were adhered to a Bermuda Bay card base and the card front was complete.

You Are Amazing – #4

For the inside… I did a wash with just a bit of water using the widest brush of the Water Painters and Bermuda Bay ink on Basic White card stock and set it aside to dry. Once dry I stamped the sentiment from the You Are Amazing stamp set in Bermuda Bay ink, then added another narrow strip of the Ice Cream Corner DSP to carry the theme from the card front. I adhered this to a panel of Old Olive card stock with liquid glue, then into the Bermuda Bay card ~ and the card was done!

For he envelope …I stamped just the balloon portion from the Hey Birthday Chick stamp set in Old Olive ink to the front. i used the Pool Party Blends to color it lightly, then covered the balloon using the Fine Tip Glue Pen. You must allow this to fully dry without touching it! Once dry, this gave the balloon a nice glossy appearance 🙂

You
Are Amazing with Hey Birthday Chick balloon – #5

For the envelope flap I adhered a panel of the Ice Cream Corner DSP with liquid glue and trimmed to fit.

You Are Amazing stamp set – #6

Stampin’ Up! True Love & Happy

It is Super Bowl weekend! Woohoo! And what are YOU doing during Super Bowl? I’ll probably color something while watching the game – it’s the perfect time. Or fussy cut… but that’s not my preference. Speaking of coloring, todays card uses the Stampin Blends and it gives a bolder look than the card of yesterday with the pencils. I used another one of the True Love DSP papers too. Let’s take a look…

True Love Happy #1

This card incorporates the Pretty Perennials stamp set in the sentiments on the card front and the word ‘happy’ just pops! I colored just the smallest of the flowers using both the Light & Dark Daffodil Delight Stampin Blends – just enough to tie in the Daffodil Delight card stock it sits on and the Ruched Ribbon, also in Daffodil Delight.

I stamped the word ‘happy’ in VersaMark ink on a piece of Basic Black card stock after using the embossing buddy to clear it of any static, then sprinkled White embossing powder over the ink and heat set it. Once it cooled a bit I fussy cut the word. I then adhered it to a piece of Basic White card stock and fussy cut around it again, giving it a white border. I stamped the word ‘birthday’ also from the Pretty Perennials stamp set, in Memento Black ink on a Basic White scrap and punched it with the Classic Label Punch. After deciding where I wanted to place the larger word, I ran a strip of Stampin’ Seal across and wove the Ruched Ribbon to just the way I wanted it, and the Stampin Seal held it nicely in place. I put dimensionals on both sentiments, adhering the larger word first, then the ‘birthday just over the ends, also on dimensionals. I added three 2020-2022 Enamel Dots in Bumblebee for the final touch.

The True Love DSP panel was adhered to Daffodil Delight card stock, put on dimensionals then added to the Thick Basic White card base and the card front was complete.

True Love Happy #2

For the inside I added a 3/4″ strip of the same True Love DSP to the bottom of the Basic White panel after coloring with the Daffodil Delight Stampin blends. This panel was adhered to a Daffodil Delight panel with liquid glue then to inside of the card base, also with liquid glue – and the card was done. Easy peasy…

True Love Happy #3

For the envelope I did no coloring, just added a strip of the True Love DSP to the envelope flap and that’s it. A bright, cheery card ready to send to someone special.

Stampin’ Up! Chicks Doing a Barnyard Dance

Our weather has been so strange lately. Temps have hovered around 30-32 day and night, and therefore the confusing snow/ rain/ sleet. We waken this morning to 26 degrees and a light dusting of snow. It’s February after all ~ and we are not in control!

Todays card features the Hey Birthday Chick bundle, which means coordinating dies, Birthday Chick Dies. I’ve used a number of the dies for this card ~ it’s playful and fun.

Hey Birthday Chick – barnyard dance, #1

Do you see all the fun details on this card – they are die cuts: starting at the top ~ the swag banner, the Happy Birthday word, the fence, the feed sack, the two big chicks and the baby chick. Oh my – how cute is that baby chick! I had fun with this… can you tell? Okay – some detail, how to, all that…

I began with a panel of Fine Art Floral DSP and ran it through the Old World 3D embossing folder. I then adhered it to a piece of Pool Party card stock. I pulled out my In Good Taste DSP and die cut two fences with the Birthday Chick Dies. In Good Taste DSP has some marvelous wood- looking sheets. This was just what I wanted for my fence. 🙂 The feed sack is a die cut only – there is no stamp for it. I die cut it from a Basic White scrap then colored it using the Crumb Cake Stampin Blends. I wrote in the word ‘feed’ with a Soft Suede Stampin Write Marker. The loopy banner and happy birthday were die cut from Rainbow Glimmer Paper.

I stamped the chicks: one in Crumb Cake ink, the other in Memento Black ink, both on Basic White card stock, and began coloring with various Stampin Blends. The chick on the left got So Saffron Blends for the body, Daffodil Delight Blends for the beak and top-knot and a dot of Dark Poppy Parade for the waddle. The chick on the right got more treatment… I started at the top with So Saffron Blends, then Daffodil Delight Blends followed by Pumpkin Pie Blends. I used Dark Pumpkin Pie for the beak and top-knot and a dot of Dark Poppy Parade for the waddle. The baby chick was die cut on a tiny scrap of Basic White card stock and colored with the So Saffron Blends, and bit of pumpkin Pie for the beak. I made certain that little wing was sticking out a bit 🙂

Adhering… the loopy banner and birthday were adhered with dabs of liquid glue. And just so you know, I wanted it off-center! I adhered the fence with liquid glue then the feed sack got a mini dimensional at the top and the bottom liquid glue – so it appears to be leaning against the fence. The dancing chicks were adhered with dimensionals and the baby chick a mini dimensional – and the card front was done. Oops – one more thing… I added the Artistry Blooms Adhesive-Backed gems then took this panel and attached it to the Coastal Cabana card base with dimensionals.

For the inside….

Hey Birthday Chick 1, inside

I began by using my Blending Brushes to apply first Pool Party ink, then Coastal Cabana ink, then Balmy Blue ink – to make it look like sky – to a panel of Basic White card stock. I then stamped the chicks in Crumb Cake ink and colored using various Stampin Blends: So Saffron for the body, tail & head feathers got Calypso Coral & Real Red, the beak a bit of Light Cajun Craze. The cupcake used Light Pineapple Punch for the icing followed by Wink of Stella (to give it a glaze), Light Balmy Blue for the candle and cupcake wrapper and Dark So Saffron for the flame. The chick just hatching was colored with Light So Saffron on his body, Dark So Saffron for his feet, Light Balmy Blue for the birthday hat. The sentiment was stamped in Coastal Cabana ink and the confetti in Calypso Coral ink.

With the panel completely colored I adhered it to a piece of PoolParty card stock and into the inside of the card – and the card was complete!!!

For the envelope…

Hey Birthday Chick 1

The envelope flap was covered in Fine Art Floral DSP. On the front, the chick was stamped in Crumb Cake ink then colored with minimal Stampin Blends: So Saffron for the body and Cajun Craze for the beak. The balloon was colored in Pool Party Blends then Wink of Stella for sparkle. Whew – lots of coloring, but it went fast and I like the end result- hope you do too.

The Hey Birthday Chick bundle was just released for purchase Feb 2 – and what a fun set. .

Stampin’ Up! Pretty Perennials

Hello again. It’s 17degrees this morning…. now these kind of temps will kill lots of germs! OK, enuf of that… today’s card… I love the dies in this bundle! The leaves and the decorative dies for the flowers are just so delicate and lovely. Here’s a close-up… are these stunning or what! They do the work for us. 🙂

Pretty Perennials bundle – #1

One of the nice parts about this bundle is all the dies can be run through the Mini Cut & Emboss machine. It’s another bonus. Yesterday was the first I had played with this set and all I did was work the dies. I did almost no stamping at all – so obviously there’s still lots for me to do with this set – yay!

Pretty Perennials bundle – #2

I had at hand the Hydrangea Hill DSP and chose to die cut the flower heads and the leaves from the papers, then the delicate overlay of the flowers is Basic White card stock. And the word ‘happy’ has a really fun script. More detail…

  • Die cut the flower heads and the large leaf image from Hydrangea Hill DSP using the Perennial Petals Dies
  • Die cut the delicate overlay for the flowers in Basic White card stock, also using the Perennial Petals Dies. Adhere these to the appropriate flower with just a dot of liquid glue in the center
  • Cut a strip of Hydrangea Hill DSP 1 1/4 x 4. Adhere the strip with liquid glue to the Basic White panel, about 1/2″ from bottom
  • Using the Stamparatus, stamp the word ‘happy’ in Memento Black ink. This comes from the Pretty Perennials stamp set. Using the Stamparatus allows for perfect placement if you need to re-stamp. I use it a lot!
  • Stamp the rest of the sentiment in Rococco Rose ink. This too, comes from the Pretty Perennials stamp set.
  • Adhere the leaf die with liquid glue, allowing the end of the stem to remain loose.
  • Stamp the sweet open flower in Rococo Rose ink – yep, from the Pretty Perennials stamp set
  • Adhere the two flower heads with liquid glue
  • Add these stunning Pastel Pearls to the centers of each flower. These are larger than our regular pearls and have four shades in the package: Gorgeous Grape, Highland Heather, Rococo Rose and Seaside Spray. They are part of the suite of products from Hydrangea Hill collection – found on pg 19 in the Jan-Jun 2021 Mini catalog.
  • Adhere the completed panel to Rococo Rose card stock with liquid glue. Add dimensionals to the back of the Rococco Rose and adhere to a Thick Basic White card base. Card front is complete!

Unfortunately I did not take photos of the inside of the card – and it is already out the door! But here’s what I did… use your imagination 🙂 silly me.

  • Die cut the group of stems in the Perennial Petals Dies from a piece of the Hydrangea Hill DSP. I used the same DSP for the larger leaf on the front.
  • Using this same set of dies, die cut the group of small flower heads from the same blue Hydrangea Hill DSP as the blue flower on the card front. Adhere both with liquid glue to the lower left corner of a panel of Basic White card stock.
  • Adhere this panel to another of Rococo Rose, then into the inside of the card. and voila!
Pretty Perennials bundle – #3

Stampin’ Up! In Bloom

Hello! How is everyone today? It’s Thursday and going to be very windy and cold. When we walk the dog we will need to be quite bundled – and may even put the doggy coat on our Springer.He isn’t used to it as the winter has been extremely mild, but he seems to like it. We’ll decide when it becomes daylight :O)

Todays card was made with the extra fun NEW Pierced Bloom Dies that is bundled with the In Blooms stamp set. It also allowed me to die cut flowers from the FREE with a $50 purchase Paper Blooms DSP. Of course, that FREE is only during Sale-a-bration which goes through the end of February. Just sayin ‘… The card ~

In Bloom #1

Every single flower and leaf was die cut from the Paper Blooms DSP. Isn’t that cool? The bow is as well. I’ve taken several close-ups so you can see what these dies do – they make these awesome lines, like stitching. I simply kept die cutting flowers and leaves and made a fun pile of them, using what I wanted for this card. I have a few left to play with again. What do I do with the extras? Mostly they go in a small bag and get put in either the stamp set or in with the dies – depends. I like having extras handy. Sometimes they sit in a small container on my desk waiting for inspiration. But the card… all of these were adhered to a Basic White panel . Since there were so many flowers on the panel, I adhered another layer of the Basic White card stock for added strength. I put dimensionals on the back and adhered it to a Night of Navy card base.

Can you see all the texture these dies add, making these almost ‘real’! And the bow – well, love that bow – so delicate. I’ve die cut two and layered them atop one another, just off-center a bit. I’ve also added several Iridescent Pearls. And the label is from this die set as well. It’s wonderful! The sentiment on the label comes from Tasteful Touches stamp set in the Annual Catalog. I’ve die cut two labels – Basic White and Night of Navy card stocks and layered them together with liquid glue. They sit on dimensionals as does the bow. Everything else is adhered with liquid glue.

Let’s take a look at the inside of the card.

In Bloom – card inside

The sentiment comes from the In Bloom stamp set and is stamped in Night of Navy ink on a Basic White panel. The flowers are die cut from the Paper Blooms DSP and adhered with liquid glue. The panel was adhered to the inside of the card with liquid glue.

What do you think – isn’t this a fun card? A friend of ours has a birthday tomorrow and I will hand deliver this since she is local – yep, masked and probably just texting her to say it’s in her mailbox so we don’t come in contact. Her family is health compromised and have to be super careful.

Stampin’ Up! Darling Donkey Birthday

Today’s card features some of the new masculine Well-Suited Designer Series Paper that will be available come Jan 5, 2021 – AND the Darling Donkey stamp set that is a FREE ITEM as part of Sale-a-bration, also beginning Jan 5, 2021. That free item is only when purchasing $50 worth of Stampin’ Up! product – just reminding…

Well-Suited Darling Donkey b’day – #1

I am smitten with these donkeys – don’t ask me why, but they definitely tickle my fancy. This card is destined for a young man who is kinda shy and that smile on the donkey is just, well, sweet. And do you notice how the donkey ate a bit of the paper edge? heehee… ok – details…

  • Card stock base is 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 scored at 4 1/4. This is Pacific Point
  • Well-Suited DSP papers (2) are the same size, just angled – 3 3/4 x 4 3/4, adhered to card base with Stampin Seal
  • Sentiment banner: Calypso Coral cut out with Stitched So Sweetly Dies as is the Whisper White panel. I stamped the Whisper White with Pacific Point ink PRIOR to die cutting. The sentiment comes from another new stamp set called Sweet Ice Cream – yep, available Jan 5, 2021. Adhere the Whisper White to the Calypso Coral banner with liquid glue and adhere to the card front with dimensionals.
  • Stamp the donkey from Darling Donkeys stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento ink and color with Stampi9n Blends – Crumb Cake and Lt Flirty Flamingo. Fussy cut and adhere to the top of the banner: NOTE… I used a dimensional under the donkeys head and liquid glue on his “sit-upon bottom”.
Well-Suited Darling Donkey b’day – #2
  • For the inside I adhered another panel of the Well-Suited DSP 3 3/4 x 4 3/4 with liquid glue
  • On a panel of Whisper White 3 1/2 x 4 1/2, I stamped the donkey in Tuxedo Black and colored with Stampin Blends, Crumb Cake.
  • Stamp the sentiment from the Darling Donkey stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento ink.
  • Adhere this panel to the DSP and the inside is done
Well-Suited Darling Donkey b’day – #3

For the envelope – I used one of the same DSP used on the card front to adhere to the envelope flap. I then stamped the sentiment on the card front – again from the darling Donkey stamp set. FINIS… Simple and masculine for a young man, yes!

Stampin’ Up! Birthday w/ Flower & Field DSP

The real focus of today’s card is the fun FREE DSP (with a $50 purchase of Stampin’ Up! product beginning Jan 5, 2021). This is such fun DSP – full of flowers and various backgrounds on the opposite side.

It begins with Bumblebee card stock then a layer of the Flowers & Fields DSP, adhered with liquid glue. I cut another layer of DSP and adhered it to a Whisper White panel with liquid glue before adding to the card base with dimensionals. The Many Messages stamp set and coordinating Messages Dies has lots of sentiments and I had several cut out. They had been stamped on Whisper White card stock in Tuxedo Black Memento ink and die cut with the Messages Dies – which goes perfectly with the paper! I adhered this particular sentiment on a piece of Bumblebee, put it on dimensionals and added it to the card front. A simple bow using the 1/4″ Whisper White Crinkled Ribbon was the final touch for the front.

Birthday w/ Flowers & Fields DSP – #3

For the inside, I adhered another panel of the Flowers & Fields DSP with liquid glue to the card base. To that a Whisper White panel was adhered with liquid glue. Another sentiment from the Many Messages stamp set was used after die cutting with the Messages Dies. This was adhered to a small piece of Bumblebee with liquid glue, then to the Whisper White panel. Two fun 2020-2022 Enamel Dots were added for a sweet touch – in Bumblebee of course. And the card was DONE!

Birthday w/ Flowers & Fields – #4

For the envelope I adhered a strip of the Flowers & Fields DSP and called it ready to send 😁 Such a bright cheery card for someone special!

Stampin’ Up! Art Gallery #2

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas… packages under the tree now means I did some wrapping yesterday! Ha – a bit more to do but feeling good about where I am in the process right now. How about you – you ready? Don’t wait, don’t hesitate…

Today’s card is made with new products available to customers beginning Jan 5, 2021. This is called Art Gallery & Floral Gallery Dies. It’s part of a suite that includes a 3D Embossing Folder that is awesome, some super ribbon, Gilded Leafing (which I haven’t played with yet!), Heat & Stick powder to adhere the leafing, and some incredible Golden Garden acetate & Fine Art Floral DSP. As I mentioned, the only product I haven’s used yet is the Gilded Leafing – so guess that’s on my ‘to do’ list, but maybe not today!

Art Gallery #2 – 1

I’ve used two coordinating papers from the Fine Art Floral DSP to create a fun background for the flower from the Art Gallery stamp set. The larger piece was adhered directly to the Thick Whisper White card base. My next step was to stamp the flower on Whisper White card stock in Merry Merlot, then the 2nd step stamp in Rococco Rose. I know, interesting combination… and the Rococco Rose doesn’t show much, which is ok. I then stamped the leaves & stem (one stamp) in Old Olive ink and die cut them both at the same time with the Floral Gallery Dies. I then die cut a second piece of the Fine Art Floral DSP using the third from largest die in Rectangle Stitched Dies. I adhered this stitched rectangle to a slightly larger panel of Flirty Flamingo card stock with liquid glue. This was attached to the floral card base with liquid glue. I adhered the flower with dimensionals to this panel, then the leaves/ stem with liquid glue, slipping it under the flower just a bit. I stamped the sentiment from the Art Gallery stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento ink and die cut it with one of the dies in the Floral Gallery Dies. Don’t you love the fun edge? I adhered it with dimensionals, trimmed the end, added three Pearl Basic Jewels and called the front done.

For the inside of the card, I used the outline from the stitched rectangle die cut and adhered it to the inside of the card with liquid glue. I love this effect ~ it brings the colors of the front to the inside and creates boundaries as well. For the envelope I kept it very simple. I cut another piece of the Fine Art Floral DSP that coordinated with the two front DSP panels and adhered that with liquid glue to the flap. Here’s abetter photo.

Art Gallery #2 – 3

Above on the left is a picture of the stamp set. On the right is a photo of a previous card using the Pained Texture Embossing Folder, the gorgeous Golden Garden Designer Specialty Acetate and the gold Fine Art Ribbon. I thought you might like to see those products in use 😁
