Stampin’ Up! Kite Delight Carefree Birthday with Video Tutorial

Good morning, y’all!  Happy Galentine’s Day!  I was yesterday-years-old when I learned that Galentine’s Day is “always” the day before Valentine’s Day.  Color me…living under a rock! 🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️

And – happy Super Bowl day!  Gotta say – since the GOAT’s not in, I care a lot less than I usually do – which is to say…not really at all!  But – it’s the one time of year that I WANT to watch commercials!  😂😂😂  I’m way more excited about our Team Meeting this afternoon!

If you were able to join me yesterday for my Facebook Live – I appreciate you spending part of your weekend with me. If you weren’t able to watch, but you’d like to see how to make this bright and cheerful card, here’s the link to it on YouTube!

This is a super cute card made with the fun little Kite Delight set – which was a fly-over for me when the catalog came out!  But…I am SO glad that I’ve got it, now – it’s really fun to play with! I used it and some In Color DSP to make this one!  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one is from the Tuesday Morning Sketches challenge!

And the colors are from the Global Design Project color challenge.

I started by adhering a piece of Misty Moonlight 2020-2023 In Color DSP to a Magenta Madness mat for the card front.

Then I cut a piece of Basic White cardstock with the second-to-largest Stitched Rectangle Die.  Using the next-to-largest equilateral triangle in the Stitched Triangle Die set (see? There WAS a reason to take geometry in school!), I cut the bottom out of the rectangle to create a banner end. 🙂

Using stamped-off-once Misty Moonlight ink, I stamped the sweet cloud image several times on the banner.  I made a sticky note mask of the cloud image and set it over one of the clouds I’d already stamped.  Then, I stamped another cloud over top – to make that one be “behind” the first one!  I moved the mask to cover another cloud and then stamped the sun in Mango Melody ink. 🙂  I love how the masking technique lets me make stamped layers! 🙂

I adhered the banner to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I stamped each of the kites from Kite Delight in Misty Moonlight on Basic White and colored them with my Mango Melody and Magenta Madness Stampin’ Write Markers.  Then I fussy cut them.   I scored the middle of the delta-shaped kite and lightly curled it with a Bone Folder.

I used a Glue Dot to adhere a “tail” made from a piece of Misty Moonlight twine from the Flowers For Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack.

The Kite Delight sentiment is stamped in Misty Moonlight on a strip of Basic White and the ends punched with the Banners Pick a Punch. I made a Magenta Madness 2020-2022 In Color DSP mat and popped the sentiment onto it with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I adhered the flower kite to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals – and used double-stacked Dimensionals for the delta-kite.

I popped the sentiment over the top with more Dimensionals – “catching” the tails of the kites.  The final kite is adhered with Liquid Glue.

I stamped the bow “tail” onto Magenta Madness and Mango Melody DSP in Misty Moonlight and fussy cut a few of them.  Then I used little pieces of Dimensional to adhere them over the top of the tails – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped the Kite Delight sentiment – I only inked “Happy Birthday” – in Misty Moonlight on a Basic White panel.  Then I added the bow-tail and finally stamped the delta kite.  I colored the kite and tail with my Magenta Madness and Mango Melody Stampin’ Write Markers.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Magenta Madness mat and then into my Thick Basic White card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Basic White Medium Envelope got the delta kite and bow-tail on the front…

…and more of the Misty Moonlight 2020-2022 In Color DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I love this Kite Delight set so much!  It’s a simple little set, really, but…it’s just so stinkin’ cute! What a fun and cheery way to wish someone a happy birthday!

I hope you like!

Finn Fan Fix 

We’ve got a new garden project going and spent yesterday afternoon up in the barn working on it.

Being that it was nearly 70 – the Man, who insisted on being with us, was too hot.  So…he went from shady spot to shady spot.

Damp Sandy Shade.

Dry Sandy Shade.

Concrete Shade.

And the winner by a landslide…Golf Cart Shade!

He’s a true Shade-oisseur!
