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...

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.

Check out the washi tape on this one...

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:

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!

How to use Washi Tape with Simple Stripes emboss folder

I have another card to share with you today, made with the "A Good Day" stamp set. I really love this one. The deer on the card is adorable and I love how great the Myths and Magic washi tape looks with the new Simple Stripes emboss folder.

IMG_0911

When I used the Simple Stripes emboss folder, I flipped the tranquil tide cardstock over and used the back of the striped pattern to attach the Myths and Magic washi tape. It is the perfect size to fit between the slats. If you look close, you can see the slats from the emboss folder.

IMG_0913

The washi tape looks awesome with the tranquil tide cardstock. I also used the Wood Textures designer series paper in the background as well as to stamp the deer on. Gosh, isn't this washi tape so shimmery and pretty?

IMG_0912

I stamped the deer with the memento black ink and colored it with the ivory and crumb cake Stampin Blends alcohol markers. The tiny new scallop circle punches work perfectly for the images in the "A Good Day" stamp set and to fit inside the cool new embroidery hoops.

Using the Simple Stripes folder, can help you line up your washi tape perfectly. Remember to use the back of your embossed cardstock to apply the washi strips to.

Stampin' Up Barn Door Stamps and Dies

I have some fun cards to share with you today, made with the new Stampin' Up Barn Door Bundle.

Its such a fun set to play with. I've created 3 different designs and one of them we will make at Card Class this week. Yay!

The first card is also made with the " This Little Piggy" stamp set. I thought it would be fun to put the piggy in the barn. It works perfectly with this set. I will post a Stampin' Up video below, showing just how to make a barn door card with the Barn Door Bundle. So scroll to the bottom of this post to see it.

The cardstock that I used is whisper white and basic black and also the Woodgrain Designer Series paper. The inks are smoky slate, crumb cake, pink pirouette, and the memento black pad.

IMG_0714

I colored in the pig with the Stampin' Blends alcohol markers. I used both the smoky slate and pink pirouette sets of markers.

If you watch the video below, you will also get a list of the "behind the scenes" items that were used to put this card together. I will also post the supply list below.

IMG_0715

I used the Stampin Write water based markers to color directly on the wreath stamp in crumb cake, pink pirouette and basic black.

How cool is this? The door slides back and forth to reveal the message. The whisper white piece that has the pig/message stamped on it is 41/4" x 2 1/2". The card base is 5 1/2 x 4 1/4.  The door is cut out with a framelit from the barn door set.

IMG_0716

IMG_0719

This is the card that we will be making at Card Class this week:

IMG_0710

I hope the card class girls like it!

IMG_0709

The colors are whisper white, crumb cake and basic black- same for the inks as well as cherry cobbler. I also used the Hardwood Background stamp for the card base. Same measurements as above.

IMG_0713

I colored the wreath, the same way as above... using the early espresso and cherry cobbler Stampin' Write markers.

IMG_0707

IMG_0712

It's so fun to slide the door back and forth!

IMG_0708

Here are both cards:

And slide...

One last quick card that I made while I had extra pieces to use up...

How to make a Quick and Easy Waterfront stamp set card

The Waterfront stamp set in the Occasions Catalog is simply amazing. It really doesn't look like much in the catalog, but its one of the easiest and most VERSITILE stamp sets that I've ever used!

This really makes beautiful scenery cards with little to no effect. The separate stamp images can be used in so many ways to create any setting you can imagine. There is water, mountains trees, sky, cottage, sun/moon, splatter and a variety of verses.

I almost didn't buy it, but once I saw all the amazing cards that people were creating with it, I had to get it for myself.

This is a simple card that we made at Kim's Card Class. The ladies loved it! We made 3 cards each of this same design and it literally took all of 10 minutes.

IMG_0284

When you find yourself in need of a masculine card, this set is absolutely perfect for that too. You can use it in so many ways, beach, woods, mountains etc.. so you never have to make the same scene twice!

I stamped the mountains in crumb cake ink, twice, and over lapped them. It actually gives them more depth to overlap. The trees and grass are in tranquil tide ink, and the water is soft sky and marina mist. The log cabins are stamped in chocolate chip ink as well as the verse.

IMG_0285

For the sun, I used so saffron, then I punched it out with the 3/4 " circle punch and used a sponge dauber dipped in peek a boo peach ink, to sponge around the outside of the circle. Its difficult to see in the photo, but I added some clear Wink of Stella to the sun and water to add shimmer.

The background paper is from the new True Gentleman designer paper in the Occasions Catalog. It has the perfect colors and patterns for a masculine card.

I'll be designing with this set a lot more- can't wait to make a beach scene!

Until the next time...
