Stampin’ Up! Happy Birthday Abstract Garden Impressions

Well.  We did it, my peeps!  We made it thru the week to Friday again!

But – you know what I realized today?

Time is running down.  To…my Double Peppermint Points special ending (on the 14th).  To…the new catalog going live (on 1 June)!  To…me sending out Catalog Shares to folks who’ve bought them (8 June!)!  To…me going to California for work (9 June) – then flying home and going…TO ALASKA (15 July!)!  Whoo-hooo!

Lots to be done bewixt now and then, yes?

But, for now, how’s about a quick and easy birthday card?  I used some of the new Garden Impressions DSP, the Happy Birthday Thinlits die and a few images from the Abstract Impressions stamp set.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Happy Birthday America!

Well – I’m tickled to say Good Morning to y’all on the Birthday of our great nation!

And – even more tickled to be saying it on a DAY OFF!!! Whoo-hoo!!  

Yes – we worked like fools and now have today off!  

I hope you have some fun plans – I’m going to a friend’s this afternoon.  Maybe.  If I can move myself to get out of my pajamas.  Want to go.  Want to lie in bed.  Go…Lie in bed…Go…

We’ll see what I decide!

In the meantime, I made a Happy Birthday America card – using the Brushstrokes background stamp.  A little Touches of Texture.  The Happy Birthday Thinlits.  A dab from the Ribbon of Courage – and a sentiment I built with the Brushwork Alphabet set.  Take a look-see:

I played along with a couple of challenges on this one.  Then first is the Fusion Challenge – my Americana stripes and the script-y fonts are from the inspiration photo.

And then I made some “fireworks” to go along with the Cupcake Inspirations challenge!

So.  To start, I made my Americana striped card front.  On a piece of Whisper White card stock, I stamped the Brushstrokes background image in Dapper Denim and Cherry Cobbler.  I used my Stampin’ Write Markers to color the stamp directly, alternating stripes.   I SNAILd the panel to a Soft Suede mat (a bit of a nod to the frame in the inspiration photo).

The middle layer is another piece of Whisper White. Using the image in the Touches of Texture stamp set, I stamped it a few times in Versamark on the panel, and sprinkled it with Silver Stampin’ Emboss Powder.  After I heated those up, I let them cool and then repeated the process a few more times with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder.

That panel is also matted on Soft Suede.  I wrapped a piece of new Dapper Denim 3/8″ Striped Grosgrain Ribbon around the matted panel, securing it in the back with scotch tape, and popped it over the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

My sentiment is from the Happy Birthday Thinlits.  Man – I just love this die!  I cut it out 4 times – twice in Basic Black and twice in Cherry Cobbler.  Then I adhered them all together in a stack with Liquid Glue.  A little persnickety – but it gives the sentiment super cool depth – that 4th layer is the kicker.  And a heckuva lot easier then cutting oodles of pieces of Stampin’ Dimensionals!

I adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue and the front was done!

On the inside – I started with another panel of Whisper White card stock.  Using the pretty Brushworks Alphabet stamp set, I stamped the word “America” in Dapper Denim.  Then I cut a tiny yellow ribbon from a piece of Daffodil Delight card stock, using one of the fun little dies in the new Support Ribbon Framelits, and adhered it with a dab of Liquid Glue.  Finally, I added a gold Metallic Enamel Shapes star.

I SNAILd the panel to a Soft Suede mat and into my Thick Whisper White card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

On the front of my Whisper White Medium Envelope, I stamped the solid ribbon from the Ribbon of Courage stamp set in Daffodil Delight and added another Gold star.  Then I used the Brushwork Alphabet set again, in Dapper Denim…

…and I masked off my envelope flap with sticky notes and repeated the Brushstrokes in Dapper Denim and Cherry Cobbler.

Et Voila!  Happy Birthday, America!  And we’re waiting for all the men and women to come home!  Hope you like.

Stampin’ Up! Happy Birthday To You Gorgeous!

Mornin’, y’all!  Hope your weekend is going well so far!  Not sure we’re hitting the dog show today, cuz we’re supposed to get some weather around lunch time.  Guess we’ll see how the day progresses!

For my card today, I pulled out the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set and the Happy Birthday Thinlits die to make a bright and pretty birthday card.  Take a look-see:

I drew inspiration for the layout from the Sketch Saturday challenge – I just turned it on its side:

And my colors are from the MFT Color Challenge:

I started with a piece of Powder Pink paper from the new Fresh Florals DSP Stack (avail 1 June) and SNAILd it to a Basic Gray mat for the card front.

On my Whisper White art panel, I first stamped a few flowers from the Happy Birthday Gorgeous (avail 1 June) – I stamped the outline in Basic Gray Archival Ink and the fill image in Powder Pink.

I matted the panel on Basic Gray and popped it over the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The sentiment is from the coordinating Happy Birthday Thinlits – I cut one in Berry Burst card stock (1 June) and one in Peekaboo Peach.  Then I used a bit of Liquid Glue to adhere them together – offsetting them a little to make a shadow.  Then I adhered it to the panel with Liquid Glue.

I stamped the large and small flowers from Happy Birthday Gorgeous in Berry Burst and Peekaboo Peach on Whisper White and fussy cut them.  Then I popped them on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and added Peekaboo Peach Enamel Shapes to the centers.

The last thing I did was to add the Happy Birthday Gorgeous sentiment in Berry Burst under the die cut sentiment.

On the inside, I added a balloon from Happy Birthday Gorgeous.  I stamped the dotted image in Peekaboo Peach on a Whisper White panel, then I added the second image in Basic Gray Archival Ink.  Finally, I added the little tassel image in Berry Burst.

I SNAILd the panel to a Basic Gray mat and into my Berry Burst card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got a few more Happy Birthday Gorgeous balloons in Peekaboo Peach, Powder Pink and Basic Gray on the front…

…and I added a little more of the Fresh Florals DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Balloons, flowers, sentiments galore!  What’s not to love about the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set and its bundled Happy Birthday Thinlits (yep – bundled so you can get them both and save 10%!).  Hope you like and are adding these to your wish list!

Finn-Fan Fix…

Well, construction on the patio continues apace – regardless of the hot and humid weather we’re having.

Wayne put in a new faucet near the area where my elevated gardens will be.

Fortunately – he had an assist from the WBQA2 CEO…

Once he and Wayne had filled the hole in, he took advantage of the cool dirt…Check.  The.  Hands.

Just chillaxin’ here, Mom!
