Stampin’ Up! Magical Day Birthday Card for the Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop!

Good mornin’, y’all – welcome to another edition of Amy’s Inkin’ Krew team blog hop!  Each month we make projects centered around a theme – and this month it’s Birthdays!!  We can interpret that any way we want – so…be sure to check and see everyone’s projects – we’ve got a bunch of talented ladies hopping with us this month!  

I have a little friend (okay – I have a few more than just one friend – but most of them are all grown up!) who will be turning 4 this year.  Her name is Scarlett.  Scarlett is sweet and very much a girly-girl.  I got her a really pretty dress with flowers and butterflies on it to send.  For the card, I decided to go pink.  And sparkly.  And…girly!  The new Magical Day stamp set – and the bundled Magical Mates Framelits seemed like just the ticket.  Take a look-see:

I borrowed the layout from the this month’s Viva La Verve sketch challenge! Continue reading

Stampin’ Up! Large Number Balloon Adventures for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

15822762_10211923272945503_223384966683691578_n

Happy Thursday, y’all – and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!  It’s color week and I hope that you’ll take a few minutes to check out all our projects!  And then maybe you’ll make them for yourselves!

The colors were pretty challenging for me – it’s a combination I likely wouldn’t have selected myself…


I needed a birthday card for a young man who turned two just a week or so ago.  And the Party Animal suite uses these colors, so…I figured…there ya go, Mare!  There’s the answer.  I added in some Large Numbers Framelits and the fun Balloon Adventures bundle and…take a look-see:


I started with an Emerald Envy card base and, using the confetti/sprinkles image in the Balloon Adventure stamp set, stamped it a couple of times across the front of the card.

My middle panel is a piece of Whisper White, matted on Crumb Cake card stock.  In the middle, I stamped a “balloon string” from Balloon Adventures in Crumb Cake.  And I added a sentiment in Emerald Envy at the bottom

.
I used the Balloon Bouquet Punch to cut a large balloon from Whisper White.  Over that, I adhered an Emerald Envy balloon cut with a Balloon Pop-Up Thinlits die.  For a little bling, I cut a second polka-dot balloon from Silver Glimmer Paper and adhered the little cut outs in the negative space.

I used the Number of Years stamp set and the Large Numbers Framelits for the center portion of the panel.  I cut a “2” from a piece of Party Animal DSP and one from Emerald Envy card stock.  Then I adhered them together – just a little offset to create a “shadow”.  I used the “nd” in Number of Years and stamped it in Emerald Envy, then popped the number on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.


On the inside, I used the Balloon Pop-Up Thinlits to create a fun element for this card.  I used a piece of Whisper White card stock  – scored in the middle – and cut it with the large pop-up die.  Then I used the solid balloon image in the Balloon Adventures stamp set to stamp the three balloons in the cut out in Emerald Envy and Crushed Curry.  I also stamped the middle balloon in Emerald Envy with the striped balloon image.


Next, I cut two more polka-dot balloons with the Balloon Pop-Up Thinlits in Crushed Curry and added them with Liquid Glue to the green balloons.

The sentiment is stamped in Emerald Envy, with a Crushed Curry banner around it – both are from Balloon Adventures.  And I added a little Emerald Envy bow.

For the DSP panels, I matted some Party Animal DSP on Crumb Cake and used Liquid Glue to adhere it to the large die cut panel.  I also added some Crumb Cake mats behind the side panels.

I carefully folded the die cut inner panel and burnished the creases, laid it flat and put Liquid Glue on just the side panels, and adhered it to the card base, which I’d laid flat on my work table.


Then I popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got a Balloon Adventures stamped balloon in Emerald Envy on the front.  I added a Crumb Cake “string” and then adhered one of the Silver Glimmer Paper cut outs over the top of the balloon …


…and added some more Party Animal DSP to the envelope flap.


Et Voila!  Isn’t this a fun die cut?  Although the card is a little bulky feeling, I don’t think the recipient will have any idea that the inside of the card is going to be so cute and dramatic!  Hope you like – and will add it to your stash before it’s gone! 🙂

Stampin’ Up! Touches of Texture For the 4th of July!

Okay – so….were you guys laughing at me yesterday?  Behind my back?  Did you think “oh, that woman is so goofy”?

Why didn’t any of you tell me that yesterday wasn’t HAWMP day at all?!?  It was TUESDAY!! 😦

As I got ready to write this post I read the morning’s post again – I realized I was typing the post on Tuesday evening, which means that it couldn’t possibly be hawmp day!  Sheesh – I must be losing my head!  😉

Today (the actual HAWMP day!), I made a card with one of the cooler new stamp sets – Touches of Texture.  Now, you might think that – what with Gorgeous Grunge and Timeless Textures, we might have enough textural stamp sets.  But – this one is different entirely.  Well, maybe not entirely, but it’s definitely different enough that it’s a great tool to have in your stash.  So, I combined it with Number of Years and the Large Number Framelits and this is what I came up with!  Take a look-see:

Now, I played along with two challenges on this one.  The first is a color challenge and it’s what herded me towards a 4th of July card.  Hand Stamped Sentiments Color Challenge #242: Continue reading

Stampin’ Up! Pedal Pusher Number of Years Anniversary

Happy Sunday, y’all!  Today.  Was.  Spectacular!  It’s really trying to be Spring in the South – which means it’s going to be in the 30’s next week!  But for today – the real harbingers of spring are springing!  I’m talking about the Dogwood trees, of course!

IMG_2743

They’re one of my very favorite trees – and they’re dotted all over our property.  When they bloom, they look like those white fairy lights that folks put up in the trees in their yard.  Only – we don’t have to put them up or pay for electricity!  They’re just beautiful and I’m always hopeful to be home when they’re blooming – so….yeah! 🙂

Today’s card, as promised, is an Anniversary Card.  Our friends celebrated their 61st wedding anniversary on Friday – so I wanted to send them a card.  Okay – it’s a little late, but…I didn’t know it until late on Friday.  So….

I thought the tandem bike in Pedal Pusher was a perfect focal point and I also wanted to use the Large Number Framelits.  So I did – and added in a little Timeless Textures and Timeless Love!  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Large Numbers Balloon Celebration Birthday

‘Sup, y’all?  I hope that you’re getting ready for a fun and relaxing weekend!  I’ll be busily trying to get ahead on cards for the week – I’ll be out of town Monday thru Thursday!  And, for these short trips, I don’t take supplies and tools – I’m always so tired at the end of the work day that I don’t even have the energy to stamp. 😦  I have to take cards ready to blog (oh – and I need their pictures with me, too!).  So….busy weekend!  But that’s a good kind of work, yes? – stamping and making cards.  Poor pitiful me! 😉

Today’s card is a birthday card.  For a little boy who’ll be turning one in a week.  Yes, I said one.

I’m pretty sure he’s going to have zero appreciation for this card.  Heck, he probably won’t even care about his present.  Maybe he’ll eat cake?  Ice Cream?  What do one year olds even eat, besides baby food?!?  Well, that’s for his parents to worry about – just like this card is really for his parents! 😉

I used the fun Large Numbers Framelits and its matching and bundled stamp set called Number of Years.  I added a few Balloon Celebration balloons and pulled out some Cherry on Top DSP.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Large Numbers Bear Hug Birthday for the Happy Stampers Blog Hop

HappyStampersBlogPostBanner-2

Okay – it just occurred to me that I did a birthday card using the Large Numbers Framelits for the last Happy Stampers Blog Hop!  Sorry about that – but it should really just go to show you how much fun and how versatile this set is!  Wouldn’t surprise me if you see some other projects using it today in the Blog Hop.  I hope that you’ll check everyone’s blogs out when you get done here!

This week we had a Color Challenge – Crushed Curry, Melon Mambo and Mint Macaron.  Of course, I’d left my Mint Macaron card stock at home.  So…had to look to my DSP – and I found the It’s My Party Designer Series Paper Stack.  All three colors are well represented in this fun paper!

12631308_10208671204685829_3197609981344797531_n

I combined a few sets for this project – deciding on the card when I realized that this year my husband will turn….duh duh duh duuuuuuh….SIXTY!  Oh my goodness – how did that happen??  A little sobering.  So I figured a not-so-sober card was in order.  Of course, there has to be a little black on a birthday card for such an occasion!

So, I used the Number of Years bundle and combined some elements from Bear Hugs, Balloon Celebration and Party With Cake.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Number of Years Pop-Up Birthday for the Happy Stampers Blog Hop!

HappyStampersBlogPostBanner-2

This week we here at the Happy Stampers welcome you to a sketch challenge!  It’s always fun to see what the 7 of us in the group come up with – we’re all so different in our crafty aesthetic – so seeing our 7 very different takes on the same sketch is cool!  Hope you’ll take a few minutes to peruse all our various offerings today.

To start out  – here’s the sketch we’re working with:

12278818_1305620516131187_8747520309334919805_n

So – two years ago (and one month from today), a lovely little girl was born to one of our favorite and most fun-to-have-around team members.  At that time, I was just getting a feel for stamping and making cards.  Hadn’t even heard of Stampin’ Up!, let alone availed myself of any of their wonderful crafting goodies.  But, nonetheless, I made a welcome baby card.  Don’t even have a picture of it.  Yes, I wasn’t even a blogger then!! 😉

Last year, I made a card for Miss Scarlett’s first birthday.  It looked like this:

Scarlett's b-day card and envelope 2 watermarked

For today, as I make her second birthday card, I once again have wonderful Occasions and Sale-a-Bration products to use.  I used two really fun things – the first is the wonderful, glorious Number of Years bundle, and the second is the so-intricate-people-think-you’re-a-genius-it’s-okay-just-let-them-think-you-are-one Birthday Pop-Ups Thinlit Dies.  Take a look-see:
