Cards- Kids

Stampin Up Party Hat Birthday- Retiring soon.

I had to show you the Party Hat Birthday stamp set and coordinating bundle, before it retires at the end of May.

Its such a unique set and once you see it, you'll know why. We are going to use this bundle at Card Class this week. However, this isn't the card we will make- I'll post the Card Class card, later in the week.

I used some fun, bright birthday colors for this card. The stamp set is a one, two or three step stamp set.

I chose to stamp all three layers of designs on the hat. Each stamp layers over the other and fills in the empty spaces. So, as you can see here- the 3 different colors that I used are actually the 3 different stamps in the set.

The melon mambo images are all on one stamp, the lemon lime twist images are all on one stamp and the pumpkin pie images are all on one stamp. So as I stamp each color, I fill in the party hat.

The dies cut out the images in the hat too. I'll show how that works, when I post the card from Card Class later in the week.

I used the coordinating cardstock colors of melon mambo and lemon lime twist as well as basic black and whisper white. The glimmer paper is from the Myths and Magic glimmer paper pack- which is also retiring.

IMG_1813

I stamped the gift box in melon mambo ink on melon mambo cardstock for a cute tone on tone background. I love that there are so many cool framelit dies with this bundle, like the banner, hat, trim and star.

I just think its so cool how I can get so many images, in so many colors by only stamping 3 times! I'll post the photo of the stamp set below this post, so you can see the 3 stamps I used on this party hat.

You'll love the other 2 samples I have with this set as well. One is a piece of pizza!

So don't forget to come back to check them out soon.

Thanks for stopping by.

Until the next time....

Super Cool and Fun Birthday Cards

I have 3 cute cards to share with you today. We made these at Card Class last week. They are super simple and super cute!

I used the Birthday Wit stamp set. Its got some really funny birthday greetings, when you feel like being in a silly mood.

Here's the first of three...

IMG_1265

I added some Tutti Frutti sequins and a little washi tape from the Myths and Magic suite. This has to be my favorite washi tape. The Myths and Magic package come with 3 rolls of sparkle and glimmery tapes.

Card 2: The background is the Picture Perfect Party, designer paper. It is awesome! I love all the bright colors and the amazing photos on this paper.

IMG_1264

Check out the washi tape on this one...

IMG_1269

The cardstock colors are whisper white and peek a boo peach. I also used peek a boo peach and bermuda bay inks. Just a reminder: the peek a boo peach is retiring at the end of May, along with all the other "In Colors" from the 2016-2018 group. Get them early- they sell out quick- probably before the end of April.

Card 3:

Bunny Bonus

One last bunny card from the "A Good Day" stamp set. How can I resist this cute little thing? So heres a quick post with the bunny again in different colors and a new layout.

I used the Petal Pairs "vines" emboss folder as well as the Naturally Eclectic designer paper for the split background.

IMG_1115

The colors used are wisteria wonder, whisper white and pool party.

I used the coordinating 1 1/8 and 1 3/8 scallop punches to layer the bunny as well as the Starburst punch in wisteria wonder.

IMG_1114

The sweet little embroidery hoops frame this little cutie so perfectly. I added the lovely smoky slate gingham ribbon to wrap it all up. Did you notice the tiny pearl on the pool party bow? How sweet is that?

IMG_1120

Just a note: the hoop stays on great with the tombow multi purpose glue and the ribbon has a soft shimmer to it that you can't she in the photo.

This was the Bonus card at Card Class and it sure was a huge it with the ladies. Hope you like it too!

Until the next time...

Stampin Up "In The Trees" stamp set with Watercolor Pencils

This is such a cool stamp set. I love that it has a hammock and cute little pennants and  lights to hang from the trees. It even has a tiny squirrel!

This card was very basic. I simply stamped the images in basic black archival ink, and used Stampin Up Watercolor Pencils and an Aqua-Painter to color them in.

IMG_1183

I used watercolor paper to stamp and color on. The other cardstocks are soft sky and crumb cake.

For the trees, I just randomly colored the entire top of the tree with the old olive and bermuda bay pencils. I kind of just scribbled the colors in. Then I used the aqua painter to wash over the leaves and blend the colors together.

IMG_1184

For the clouds and tree trunk, I outlined the image and washed over it with the aqua painter. The flowers and grass are lightly colored before I used the aqua painter to give them a water colored look.

IMG_1187

I love my embellishments, and here you can see that I've added a few Glitter and Clear Epoxy dots.

The sun is from the "Let the Good Times Roll" roller coaster stamp set. I stamped it in daffodil delight and then used the pumpkin pie watercolor pencil to highlight. I washed over it with my aqua painter as well.

Here's a close up of the sun. I needed to add some "shine" so I used the Wink of Stella brush to make it sparkle.

IMG_1188

I cut out the clouds and popped them on with mini dimensionals.

IMG_1186

I used the Congratulations greeting from the set because I thought it would make a great Gradution card. Especially for a young man. Its a great masculine set as well as any age or gender.

We've never had a stamp set quit like this. I think its pretty awesome. What do you think?

Thanks for taking the time to take a look!

Until the next time...

Stampin Up Bubble Over with Happiness

I have a fun card to share today. Its made with the Bubble Over stamp set and coordinating dies. We made this at my Card Class.

I especially love some of the cool details on this bubbly greeting card.

IMG_0286

The bubbles that are spewing out of the top of the pop bottle (we call it pop, here in western PA;) are stamped and then cut out with the bubble framelit die. Its one stamp and one die, which makes it easy to create lots of fun bubbles!

Check out the "sweat" drops from the cold bottle of "pop". I totally love this! The drops are from the  Glitter and Clear Epoxy shapes in the new Stampin Up Occasions Catalog 2018.

IMG_0291

I used silver foil paper to die cut the bottle cap on the bottle. It looks so real!

Easter Bunny/Baby card Simple Eclipse Technique

Easter is just around the corner and this " Sweet Little Something" bunny is perfect for Easter cards and pages. I actually made this as a baby card, but it is just as great as an Easter card.

The colors are whisper white, pink pirouette and berry burst cardstocks as well as pink pirouette, sweet sugarplum and berry burst inks. I stamped them in that order.

IMG_0367

This card uses a simple Eclipse technique. I used only one heart from the Sweet and Sassy hearts framelits set. I first stamped the bunny on the whisper white, then cut out the heart over the bunny head. Next, I attached the whisper white that had the heart cut out of it, to the berry burst cardstock, using dimensionals, so that it was elevated. Finally, I placed the heart cut out back into the open heart space and glued it down.

IMG_0368

Here, you see the dimension from the Eclipse technique. To see another sample of this technique, click here. I also used the gorgeous berry burst ribbon and a few scattered pearl jewels to add a more feminine touch. I placed the pearls directly on some of the dots formed by the Softly Falling emboss folder.

IMG_0369

So, for both a new baby or a sweet bunny Easter card, its perfect either way! The Sweet Little Something stamp set, is a must have this season.

Thanks for stopping by today.
