Stampin’ Up! Foil Frenzy Stunning Birthday Card

Don’t you love the versatility of the Foil Frenzy Specialty Designer Series Paper?  Gorgeous!!! Especially pairing two new colors: Berry Burst and Powder Pink.

I  loosely cased this card and now can’t find the original to credit the author.  I think it is a brilliant design. The ribbon is new this year, so pretty in Berry Burst, it’s the 5/8″ Crinkled Seam Binding.  It makes the prettiest bow.  The gold foil sentiment just sets the whole front of the card off don’t you think?

Inside was finished by using the punched out Foil Frenzy scalloped circle and Powder Pink.  Before adhering all layers together on the inside I first stamped the sentiment and sponged lightly with Berry Burst Ink on the edges of the powder Pink.

Here are the Stampin’ Up! Products that I used in this card:

Card Stock:  Foil Frenzy (Berry Burst)  Whisper White, Powder Pink, Gold Foil

Dies: Scalloped Circle Framelits, Happy Birthday Thinlets

Stamps: Baskets of Wishes

Inks: Berry Burst

Ribbon: 5/8″ Crinkled Seam Binding (Berry Burst)

 

Stamin’ Up! Bella & Friends Birthday Card

Bella & Friends is the perfect card to use when wishing your fur baby groomer Happy Birthday!  My fur babies have gone to Charles for over six years for grooming.  This card turned out just perfect for him, he so appreciates my handmade cards.

The perfect combination of Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper and the 1/2″ Gingham Ribbon in Night of Navy were crying for a card!  This card was loosely cased from creatinwithkirsteen.com (6/10/2016).

The puppy was filled in with the Blender Pen and Crumb Cake Ink.  Triple layered and popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The little footprints on the inside are from a stamp I have had for years.  Sorry not Stampin’ Up!.

Obviously, Chin Chin and Zee Zee are my two Shih Tzus’.

The Birthday Delivery Bundle with the Birthday Memories Designer Series Paper was designed (I am sure) just for this very cute juvenile note card set!  A perfect gift for a young mom, grandma or great grandma.  How many times have you been hunting for a card to include in a gift for child’s birthday party?  This set has four note cards perfect for including a gift bag or just to tuck some money inside.  These are neat because they really don’t bring to mind boy or girl.  Old Olive, Pacific Point, Real Red and Daffodil Delight are the colors I used to create  this cute set.

Stampin’ Up! Big on Birthdays, Naturally Eclectic in Soft Sky Birthday Card

Love so many of the new Stampin’ Up! Designer Series Papers!  So pretty, so ‘eclectic’ for sure.  Coincidently this card is made using the Naturally Eclectic DSP!  Soft Sky is one of the many coordinating colors with this paper, tried Night of Navy but it was just too dark for what I was going for.

Kind of quick and simple!  Uses one Die cut and the rest are all easy to cut on the trimmer.  The matching ribbon and enamel dots are so much fun and add so much to the ‘soft feel’ of the card.

The inside was finished with a “Blooms & Wishes” petal stamped in Soft Sky.  The Stampin’ UP! supplies I used in this card are listed below.  Also check out my video making this card:Soft Sky Birthday Card.

Delightful Daisy DSP Graduation Gift Check Holder

You may have noticed that I haven’t posted since early April.  Life kinda has a funny way of  happening!  Many family members visiting, and most especially my work.  And then when I had a couple of days off, got my laundry caught up and went to my craft room, I couldn’t think of one single card I wanted to make!  Ever happen to you?  So without cards I had nothing to post about.  I finally gave in and pulled out the card fronts I made for On Stage the first of April.  I have never shown them and I do think they are pretty.  So I will be featuring them over the next few weeks trying to get my posting back on a regular basis I will start by posting just once a week on Saturday.

That said, I did make a couple of new cards recently and will feature those first.  The one I am showing today was a graduation check holder made with the lovely, inspiring Delightful Daisy DSP and the Daisy Punch.

This is the outside, the check I used was a Cashiers Check and it is unusually long- 8 1/2″.  The colors are: Calypso Coral and Old Olive.  See below for the list of supplies that I used on this project.

Here it is without the ‘Belly Band”.

The sentiment is mostly original.  I found the basic sentiment on the internet but was unable to find the author.  I changed quite a bit of it to suit my situation. The sentiment was printed from my computer on Whisper White Card Stock and cut to fit.  The little length of Whisper White at the bottom of the sentiment covers up my personal message and signature.  Forgot to take a picture  before I signed it!

Here are the supplies I used in making this holder.  If you would like the size of the cuts  please email me and I will be happy to send them to you.

HERE ARE THE CUTS: 

Calypso Coral Card Stock: 9″ X  8 1/2″ : Score Longwise: 2 3/4″,  6 3/8″  Fold on these lines

Stampin’ Up! Lift Me Up Bundle in Peekaboo Peach and Watermelon Wonder

The colors in this Carried Away Designer Series Paper are so bright and cheerful!  Combined they make me want to smile.  However, this Designer Series Paper is going to be Carried Away on April 1.  You have just one more day to order and get this bright paper free!!! (order of $50 or more).

The card base is Peekaboo Peach Card Stock and layered with Watermelon Wonder Card Stock and a layer of Carried Away DSP.  The Sentiment is Stylized Birthday Stamp (only in rubber/wood block) and stamped in Watermelon Wonder on Whisper White Card Stock.  The Sentiment was heat embossed by using Stampin’ Clear Embossing Powder over the Watermelon Wonder Ink.

The Sentiment was then die cut from the Stitched Shapes Framelits and layered with a piece of Carried Away DSP die cut using next larger die in Layering Squares Framelits.  The next frame is die cut from the next larger die in Layering Squares Framelits and all layers adhered together using SNAIL adhesive.  This panel was then adhered to the front of the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals to give it some height.

The hot air balloons are from the Lift Me Up Stamp Set stamped in Archival Black Ink, on Carried Away DSP and die cut using the matching dies from the Lift Me Up Bundle.  These were adhered to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

This angle shows the dimensional effect a little bit better.

The inside was finished by stamping the smaller balloons in Watermelon Wonder on Whisper White Card Stock.  The clouds are also from that Stamp Set and are stamped in Smoky Slate. The sentiment is from the Lift Me Up Stamp Set and stamped in Watermelon Wonder.
