Coloring with Markers- Stampin Up Carousel Birthday

Here's a quick card using the Stampin Up Carousel Birthday stamp set and Stampin Up Markers.

I chose 3 basic colors for this card, mint macaron,(green) pink pirouette (pink) and soft sky (blue) markers. Then I used 2 darker shades of each basic color. This gives the image, depth and shading without having to think about it.


I added old olive and emerald envy to the mint macaron, (green horse) flirty flamingo and melon mambo to the pink pirouette (pink horse) and tempting turquoise and pacific point to soft sky (blue horse).


I attached the colorful enamel dots to the tops of the poles to match the colors of the horses.


I thought the white pom pom trim was a perfect touch for a carousel. I attached the trim with tear tape to ensure that it stayed put.


I added the clear shimmery Wink of Stella brush over the horses. I tried to get a good photo, to show how it shimmers in real life, but if you look at the blue horse, you can see the shimmer on the front legs.


This would make a special birthday card for a little girl- or even a big girl! It makes a great baby card as well. Have fun with it!

Stampin' Up! Baby Bear Ideas

Oh how we are all loving this adorable stuffed teddy bear. I have a couple more cards to share with you today.

I made a girl and a boy bear. I mean, I could make tons of these in every color! As you may know, this is a 3 step stamp set. Which means that we can stamp the images in layers over top of each other to create shading, depth and dimension. I really love the 2 and 3 step stamps. They create so many possibilities and the images look so realistic.

The bear was stamped in 3 layers. The first stamp ( all the stamps are numbered by the way) is stamped in delightful dijon ink,  crumb cake ink and lastly, chocolate chip ink.

I used calypso coral ink and cardstock as well as a calypso coral enamel heart shape on the bears chest.


So, after I stamped this, I learned that I should line up the bears arm pits and butt- to get the layers perfect, when I stamp it. I'll try that next time. The Happy Heart emboss folder and the new "Very Vanilla 1/2" lace trim give this card the perfect soft and pretty touch.


Now, for the boy bear... His layers are stamped in so saffron, delightful dijon and chocolate chip ink. I also used wisteria wonder and elegant eggplant ink for his bow tie.


I used some dimensionals under the so saffron cardstock and the bow to give it some lift. Again, I added an enamel heart shape in so saffron to the bottom of the thank you card.


Don't they make a cute couple?


I hope I've inspired you to give 3 step stamping a try!

Thanks for stopping by.

Stampin' Up! "Baby Bear" stamp set - She's so Adorable

I'm sharing a sweet and sassy "Baby Bear" stamped card with you today. It's such a girly-girl card. Perfect for the new baby or little princess, or even a big princess.

I used lots of pinks on this Baby Bear card. The cardstock colors are flirty flamingo and very vanilla. I also added the polka dotted paper from the "Pop of Pink" designer series paper pack in the new Stampin' Up! catalog. I used the flirty flamingo ink in conjunction with the melon mambo ink on the bow. This is a 3 step stamp set. For the bow I used 2 steps, which means I layered two stamps on top of each other to create the colors on the bow.


The bears body is 3 colors, which means that I used the 3 step stamping technique. I layered 3 stamps on top of each other to create shading, dimension and depth. For the bears body I first used the boldest stamp in so saffron ink, then I layered crumb cake ink over that and chocolate chip was the last layer with the most detailed stamp.


I added the new "Enamel Shapes" to the bow and the greeting. The bow has a melon mambo heart shape and I attached two small circle shapes to the greeting. Did you notice the new punch? Its the "Classic Label" punch. Perfect fit for the greetings in this stamp set. To finish it off, I wrapped the gorgeous flirty flamingo ruched ribbon around the bottom.


Isn't she just adorable?

I appreciate you stopping by today. Big bear hugs to you!

Stampin' Up! - Baby Bear Boy

It's a "Baby Bear" boy this time. The last post was a sweet little girl bear, so I thought I would design the boy version of the Baby Bear stamp set.

I used the same exact layout and made a few minor changes. Of course, I chose soft sky ink and cardstock for the "blue" on this card.  Its such a soft, powdery blue color, perfect for a baby boy bear. I also used very vanilla and marina mist cardstock. I used the same inks as I did on the girl bear, crumb cake, tip top taupe and chocolate chip. This is a three step stamp, so always start with the boldest stamp and lightest color first.


This time I cut out the bow and used it around the neck of the bear instead of on the head.


I love the "Festive" emboss folder for baby cards. Its so delicate and sweet. Check out the enamel shapes heart that I added to the bow tie. I am loving these enamel shapes. I can use them on everything!


I finished the card with the new very vanilla 1/2" lace trim. This ribbon is gorgeous, and perfect for the finishing touch on this sweet baby bear card.

Thanks for checking out my blog today.

Until the next time..

Stampin' Up! - Sweet "Baby Bear"

I couldn't wait to get my hands on this adorable stamp set. "Baby Bear" is the sweetest little bear stamp that I have ever seen.

Its also a "3 step" stamp set. That means that the stamp is "layered." It is designed that way to add color, detail and dimension. The layers are stamped on top of each other starting with the lightest color of ink and ending with the darkest color.

I used crumb cake, tip top taupe and chocolate chip for the ink colors on the bear. There are 3 stamps that make up the bear. I layered them on on top of each other in the order that I listed. The bow was stamped in pink pirouette and flirty flamingo.


I used pink pirouette and flirty flamingo as well as very vanilla cardstocks. The ribbon is the new flirty flamingo ruched ribbon. Its so pretty! I see a lot of this ruched ribbon in my future.


The "Festive" emboss folder gives this card a soft sweet background design. I also used the "Sweet and Sassy" hearts framelits to die cut the flirty flamingo heart.


A small "enamel shapes" heart in pink pirouette, adds that special touch.


Such a "beary" cute stamp set! Stay tuned for more Baby Bears- and some boy bears too. I've got more to share soon.

Thanks for stopping by today.
