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".

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. :)

IMG_3146

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.

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

Peaceful Reflection in Pink

I have another Peaceful Reflection card to share with you today. This is the stamp set that can be used to make a reflection in the water, by flipping the actual photopolymer stamp over on the block and stamping with it.

IMG_2496

I used petal pink, and shaded spruce cardstock as well as lemon lime twist, petal pink, shaded spruce, lovely lipstick an balmy blue inks. For the splatter, I dipped an aqua painter in a puddle of lemon lime twist ink, and flicked it over the cardstock.

IMG_2494

As I mentioned, I did the reflection with the same stamps that I stamped the green plants in, only I flipped them over on the acrylic block to the flat side of the stamp. I did stamp off first with the balmy blue ink, before stamping the reflection. ( stamping off: ink stamp, then stamp on scratch paper right before stamping on the card for a softer color)

IMG_2410

IMG_2411

For the layered background, I attached a 5 1/4 x 4" piece of petal pink at an angle to the front of the card.

IMG_2504

Then, I turned the card over trimmed off the over-hang pieces.

IMG_2505

I scattered a few of the Share What You Love pearls around the card and added a greeting on an oval Stitched Shape framelit.

IMG_2493

I love pinks and greens and was surprised how well the various shades meshed together so well on this card.

IMG_2492

Its effortless to make reflections with this super cool stamp set. I hope you decide to give it a try.

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...

Stampin Up Varied Vases Stamp set and Punch

Oh how cute this set is! The Varied Vases stamp set is a bunch of cute vases in various sizes and shapes with fun flowers as well. It also can be bought with the coordinating punch- it punches the vases, flower, and leaves.

IMG_2402

I used two new Stampin Up colors on this card. Lovely Lipstick and Call Me Clover are the colors I used in addition to the new Call Me Clover paper in the new In Color designer paper pack. The vase is actually punched from a piece of the new In Color paper as well.

IMG_2400

I stamped the tulip in Lovely Lipstick, but I stamped off onto my scratch paper first, for a softer color, then full strength ink for the outline of the tulip. I did the same with the Call Me Clover ink for the leaves. I also used whisper white, velum and call me clover cardstocks.

IMG_2403

The tiny bow is made with the new lovely lipstick ribbon and I added 3 of the new Faceted Dots in mint macaron below the greeting. The card is a 5 1/2 x 4 1/4" base, the In Color dotted designer paper is cut at 4 x 5 1/4" and the velum is 2 3//4" x 3 1/2". The whisper white is 1 3/4 x 2 1/2 and the call me clover is 2 x 2 3/4.

IMG_2401

Of course its always fun the stamp the inside too!

I hope you enjoyed me quick and easy, super cute tulip card. This stamp set is a must have if you like cute flowers and adorable vases!

Stampin Up- A Good Day Lemonade

I simply can't put this set down! I keep thinking of more cards to create with this darling stamp set.

A Good Day stamp set is quickly becoming one of my favorites. I was thinking spring and wishing for warmer days today, so I came up with this refreshing and brightly colored greeting card.

IMG_E0915

Ahh... so refreshing. I used some cheerful and happy colors for this card, including, daffodil delight, lemon lime twist, and peek a boo peach. Even the names of these colors make me happy.

I colored the drink glasses with regular Stampin Write Markers in the same colors.

IMG_0918

I didn't use the coordinating Embroidery Hoops this time, but I did use the 2 Scallop Circle punches that coordinate with this darling stamp set.

IMG_E0919

The daffodil delight cardstock measures 4 x 5 1/4, the peek a boo peach is 5 1/4 x 3 and the Tuttu Frutti designer paper is 5 x 2 3/4.  I stamped the "Just for You" starburst twice. Once on lemon lime twist cardstock and once on whisper white. I then used the 1" circle punch to punch out the words on the whisper white cardstock and used a dimensional to pop it up on the lemon lime twist scallop circle.

IMG_0916

 I tied it up with two ribbons made with my favorite gorgeous, lemon lime twist ribbon and added a few Tutti Frutti self adhering sequins!

I hope this makes you all warm and happy and ready for spring!

Until the next time...
