Cards - Birthday

How about a Wedding Card with the First Frost Bundle...

Taking a break from Christmas Cards for a little bit and designing a pretty wedding card- (or anniversary, shower or birthday) instead.

I used the First Frost stamp set and thinlets. I love the colors on this card. So soft and pretty however, the colors somehow look like it could still be a wintery December wedding card.

I used soft seafoam, granny apple green, mossy meadow, lovely lipstick, powder pink and flirty flamingo inks and cardstock colors.

The "Subtle Emboss Folder" gives the background a beautiful linen look.

Don't forget the inside...

First Frost Never Disappoints

Sharing one of my favorite flower sets today. First Frost is available in the Stampin Up Holiday Catalog 2018.

I used the blackberry bliss ink for the flower image. It looks so pretty in this deep purple color. The coordinating Frosted Bouqet framelits and Frosted Floral designer paper make this the ultimate suite.

I also used tranquil tide, and mossy meadow colors for the greens.

IMG_5335

To complete the look, I did some fun splattering by dipping my aqua painter into blackberry bliss ink and tapping it over my card.

IMG_5331

A few pearls and gems to add dimension and sparkle and viola!

Triangle Flap Fold Card with Animal Outing

I'm sharing another card made with the fun fold that I shared in my last post. This time, I've used the adorable Animal Outing stamp set and suite. I made several of these cards with different Frames Elements embellishments. This one has the Leaf Ribbon and the Frames elements leaf and heart embellishments. I colored the heart with a real red Stampin Blends alcohol marker and the leaf spray with the old olive marker.

IMG_E4708

Here's another design with different elements. Notice the strip of circles at the bottom of the card above?

IMG_4713

Remember, when you cut the 8 1/2" x 11" cardstock in half diagonally, you can use the other half of the cardstock as well. It will just open in the opposite direction.

To read instructions on how to make this card- see my last post here:How To Triangle Flap Fold

IMG_4711

I attached the Leaf Ribbon with mini glue dots under the leaves. No coloring on this wreath, it looks good in its natural color.

IMG_4714

This one opens on the opposite side from the one above, because I used the other half of the diagonally cut cardstock.

IMG_4712

I've attached the wooden elements with multi purpose glue. It works perfectly! Check out the cute scallop element on the bottom of the card above. So cute!

IMG_4717

The Call Me Clover cardstock matches the Leaf ribbon exactly!

IMG_4718

This has got to be the cutest "safari" set I've ever seen- Animal Outing is adorable!

IMG_E4720

The whole suite coordinates like a dream.

IMG_E4709

Its such a fun set to use all year for many different occasions, like birthdays, valentines, anniversaries, thank you's,  just because and so much more. Its also great for guys or gals! I hope you'll give it a try!

Stampin Up First Frost Wreath

There are so many lovely possibilites with the First Frost stamp set and dies. For this card, I decided to make a wreath as the focal point of my card.

I used night of navy and mint macaron cardstock as well as the Frosted Floral designer paper. This paper has a pearlized shimmer all over. It is stunning. So hard to catch it in a photo, though.

IMG_5342

I used the large Stitched Circle Framelit in very vanilla as my "guide" and placed the foliage all around it.

The ink colors are night of navy, blackberry bliss and blushing bride.

IMG_5341

I placed a matching pearl, rhinestone or gem in the middle of each flower for a little more sparkle, than tied it with a night of navy gingham ribbon across the bottom.

IMG_5340

Such a sweet card for a wedding, graduation, new job or birthday card.

Have you bought this set yet? Its so gorgeous, and the shading of the stamps is perfect- one ink stamping and wow, 2-3 shades in one!

Thanks for stopping by today!

Until the next time...

Fun Times! Its time for another Layered Alphabet card!

Its been awhile since I've posted a card made with my absolute favorite stamp set and dies of all time- the Lined Alphabet and Layering Alphabet dies.

This is so fun- literally! I used lots of bright, happy colors for a special birthday greeting.

IMG_2971

I used the new "In Colors" lovely lipstick, grapefruit grove, pineapple punch and call me clover as well as basic black. I also used the coordinating ribbon colors of lovely lipstick, grapefruit grove and call me clover. I simply tied the ribbon around the card and knotted it.

IMG_2970

The polka dotted paper is the In Color Designer paper pack- it also contains the blueberry bushel in color and the pack has several different patterns as well. I used the same color inks on the stamped letters and memento black for the greeting which was stamped with the Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set. 

IMG_2969

The designer papers were all cut to 3.5 x 3.5 inches before die cutting. I also used the 3/4" circle punch for the & sign and attached it with a mini dimensional. Check out the video below to learn how to use the Layering Alphabet dies. This bundle should definitely be on your wish list soon!

I'll be blogging about my Stampin Up Alaskan Cruise trip this week, so be sure to stop back!

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_3157

IMG_3158

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

IMG_3161

IMG_3164

IMG_3166

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_3192

IMG_3146

Heres a whole bunch of them!

IMG_3147

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!

IMG_3153

I hope you enjoyed the quick tutorial - you should give it a try. I'm pretty sure that we will be making this one at my next card class too!
