How to - Stampin Up Best Bunny

I have a sweet card to share with you today. Its a super cute bunny card, made with the Best Bunny stamp set and coordinating Bunny Builder Punch.

I stamped the bunny in memento black ink and colored him with Stampin Blends alcohol markers. I colored the bunny before I punched him out. It makes it easier to manage and I don't have to hold little tiny pieces with my big fingers and try to color them.

I used soft subtle colors for both the bunny and the background of the card which is one of my favorite new colors, soft sea foam. The designer paper strip is from the Share What You Love designer paper pack.

First let me share a tip when punching out the bunny. I wanted to punch the bunny all at once and not in separate parts. To do that, I first used the bunny builder punch and punched out the image on a piece of scrap paper, like so:

Next, I placed the photopolymer stamps in the punched holes that matched the stamp images- make sure you place the photopolymer stamps with the stamping side facing down. See below- these are the stamps, placed in the punched bunny spaces.

Lastly, place a clear acrylic block over top of the photopolymer stamps and "pick them up" onto the block. They will now be in the exact position as to how the Bunny Builder punch with "punch" them out. * See photo of Bunny Builder Punch below, in the supply list- you'll see how the layout matches the punch exactly.

Ok, so back to the Best Bunny card. I used the light crumb cake Stampin Blends alcohol marker to color the entire fur of the bunny. I then shaded with the dark crumb cake marker. I did the same with the petal pink light and dark markers on the belly, cheeks and ears.

Notice the beautiful embossed background on the soft seafoam cardstock? The background was embossed with the "Subtle" emboss folder. Its so pretty and has a gorgeous "linen" look to it.

I added a rhinestone jewel and a couple self adhesive Basic Sequins to finish off the sweet bunny card.

I hope you enjoyed the card and the special Bunny Builder Punch "tip".

Stampin Up: Little Elephant and Matching Elephant Punch

So how about a super bright baby card? I used the Little Elephant bundle for this one. The Little Elephant stamp set also has a matching Elephant punch. How cool is that?

IMG_3303

I used the new pineapple punch ink and cardstock as well as the new gray granite. Packs a little punch, right?

IMG_3305

How sweet is the new Tufted emboss folder? I love this look- kind of reminds me of a baby quilt.

IMG_3309

I added the Stitched Labels Framelits to layer the elephants on. It makes the perfect frame. I also added a few Basic Adhesive Backed Sequins and Silver Metallic Pearls for the eyes.

How To: Card Fold with Stampin Up's Broadway Birthday Stamp Set

I made this super sparkly, bright, happy birthday card for a card swap that I host with other Stampin Up Demonstrators all over the country IMG_3141

I love this vintage style, cool and funky stamp set. This set has coordinating dies called Broadway Lights that work so perfectly for that marque look.

This card has a unique fold in front. Its super easy too!

IMG_3145

 I used the Broadway Bound designer paper as well as basic black, lovely lipstick, lemon lime twist, gold foil and gold glimmer paper. I stamped the greeting in granny apple green. I used the Birthday Backgrounds stamp set and stamped it onto the lovely lipstick cardstock in the same color ink for a tone on tone look.

IMG_3143

I have a full list of supplies listed below for you.

IMG_3144

Here's a peek at the inside. I used the candles from the Broadway Birthday set as well.

IMG_3142

For the card I used a basic black card size 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 when folded. ( the size before folding in half is 4 1/4 x 11.  I then took the top right corner and folded it down to evenly line up with the bottom of the card.

IMG_3158

Open it back up and apply adhesive really well so that the flap stays down.

I used the Layering Circle Framelits for the scallop circle as well as the lovely lipstick circle and attached them on the front flap.

  IMG_3138
For the sizes of the designer paper: the polka dot is cut a 4 x 1" and for the stripes I took a piece cut at 4x4. Next line the opposite points up on the cutting line of your Stampin Trimmer and cut - you will have 2 triangles. Save one for another card. :)

Heres a whole bunch of them!

All kinds of fun patterns in the Broadway Bound designer paper pack!

IMG_3150

So super shiny and sparkly. I liked it so much that I even made one for my bff for her birthday.

IMG_3152

This was a lot of glimmer and glitz going into my mailbox!

Oh Baby- Its the Layered Alphabet once again!

So this time I've made an adorable baby card with the Layering Alphabet dies. I'm telling you, this set is great for any occasion at all!

I used the colors, petal pink, powder pink, blushing bride and flirty flamingo. All soft, pretty pinks for a baby girl.

IMG_3274

Each color was cut at 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 inches. The card is the same size in whisper white.

IMG_3275

The "congrats" is from the Thoughtful Banners stamp set and the little birdie and heart are from the Pick A Pennant stamp set. There are so many cute little stamps in both of these sets. Perfect to pair with the Layering Alphabet.

IMG_3273

It really is my most favorite stamp set of all time! So many fun cards and scrapbook pages just waiting to be created! And its pretty simple too. I hope you'll give it a try. Check out the video below on how to use this Layering Alphabet die.

Lined Alphabet - Thanks Friend

As you know, I'm obsessed with this Lined Alphabet set and coordinating Layering Alphabet dies. And for good reason! Its amazing, fun to create with and so incredibly unique!

I went for rainbow colors this time and created a special card for a friend.

The card is the standard 5 1/2 x 4 1/4" and each piece of cardstock is cut the same size as well.

IMG_2657

The colors are real red, mango melody, pineapple punch, granny apple green, pacific point, and glorious grape. I used the Stitched Label framelits for the little granny apple green heart, because those stitched hearts are just the cutest!

IMG_2661

The sentiment comes from the Varied Vases stamp set.  I just love the font in that set- its so fun- just like this card!

I used the Lined Alphabet stamps to stamp over the letters in the same colors as the cardstock for a tone on tone look.

IMG_2668

I finished it off with a tiny rhinestone jewel placed in the middle of the stitched heart. It just gives it that little bit of sparkle at the end of the rainbow.

IMG_2656

I can't say enough about this amazing bundle. I have a sweet baby card and more fun cards to share with this set, coming soon!

Thanks friend, for stopping by today.

Until the next time...

Layering Alphabet in "Pinks"- Yay!

Pink is my absolute most favorite color, so I wanted to design a card made with the Layering Alphabet dies in various shades of pink.

I decided on a birthday card with the word "yay!" I had a lot of fun designing this card. It not only uses my favorite color, but it also has ribbons and sparkle too!

IMG_2667

The colors that I used on this card are lovely lipstick, melon mambo, flirty flamingo and petal pink, inks and cardstock. I also used basic black and whisper white cardstocks.

I love how it turned out!

IMG_2666

I cut each color of cardstock to a 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 piece and then cut out the letters. I attached it to a basic black card measuring the same. To attach the Iridescent Sequins, I just dotted liquid multi purpose glue in the spots that I wanted to place the sequins. I then placed the sequins on top of the dollop of glue.

IMG_2662

The black satin ribbon is tied around the entire card, with a little white bakers twine bow tied on top and attached with a glue dot. I also used the mini black sequin trim to add some extra glimmer to the card.

You'll notice that the word "celebrate" is stamped on a cute little label. I die cut this with one of the dies in the new Stitched Label framelits set. The word, celebrate is from the Thoughtful Banners stamp set.

IMG_2663

And there you have it! Another fabulous greeting card, made with the Lined Alphabet stamp set and Layering Alphabet framelit bundle.
