Stampin’ Up! Birthday Delivery Note Card Boxed Gift Set

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.

This set was cased from Stamping with Dawns’ You Tube found here.  Isn’t it cute?  AND the best part is the cards and envelopes are already to be decorated!

 

I want to post this.  Come back later today if you would like to see a list of the supplies I used.  Thank you for reading my blog today!  Happy Sunday!

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.

Party Animal makes great backdrop for Pretty Kitty Twist and Pop card!

The first time I saw a Twist and Pop card I got so excited.  I knew I wanted to make one but couldn’t decide just which stamp set or sets I wanted to use.  My granddaughter, who just happens to love dogs (Ok any furry animal), was turning 10 and I needed a very special Birthday Card for her.  While looking through my stamp sets I noticed Bella & Friends, and counted- yes there were four kitty stamps that would fit on those smaller sections.  So, running out of time I quickly went through my DSP and quickly settled on Party Animal Designers Series Paper in the Occasions Catalog.  Love the Emerald Envy!

Then I began looking through all my saved You Tube videos on Pop & Twist Cards. I found the perfect one and when I finished this card I was so happy I did.  All her tips made my card ‘pop’ out just as it was supposed.  Here is the link for the video: Rajni’s Craftivity.    The video is so very easy to follow and the card goes together very easily if you carefully follow the video.

The card base is larger than usual- 5 1/2″ X 6″ (Card Stock cut at 6″ X 11″, scored and folded at 5 1/2″).  Yes, I had to make my own envelope-easy-peasy when you use the envelope making board.  The Color Stock used in this card is Emerald Envy and Whisper White.  The DSP is the Party Animal DSP.

I formed the ‘belly band’ by cutting Whispr White Card Stock -two lengths cut at 3/4″ X 7 inches.  I overlapped the ends to fit the card around and using Fast Fuse taped the ends together.  Before taping I stamped the squiggles using the stamp from the Ballon Adventure Stamp Set.  I stamped the kitty on Whisper White Card Stock in Black Stazon Ink and colored in using GoldenDijon, Pacific Blue,  Crushed Curry, Emerald Envy and Tangerine Tango Stampin’ Write Markers.  Then I die cut using the Stitched  Shapes Framelits Die Set circle that would outline kitty perfectly. Using the next size up circle die from the Layering Circles Framelits Set I die cut it in Emerald Envy, and the largest circle was die cut the largest die from the Layered Circles Framelits set.  All were adhered using SNAIL adhesive.  The two little ties are Emerald Envy 1/8″ Taffet Ribbon in Emerald Envy and the trinket are from the Party Animal Embellishments in the Occasions Catalog.

This shows it about to pop open, this mechanism is so good that when the belly band is removed the card almost pops open by itself!  The mechanism was made using Emerald Envy Card Stock.

img_3370_edited-1

And here it is open!  Cut huh?   All the kitties arerom the Pretty Kitty Stamp set,  The balloon was carefully masked from then Bella & Friends Stamp Set.  The kitties were all colored in using GoldenDijon, Pacific Blue,  Crushed Curry, Emerald Envy and Tangerine Tango Stampin’ Write Markers.  By the way, this card closes very easily as well!

The back page of the card was finished by stamping, in Emerald Envy Ink,  the sentiment from Confetti Celebration on Whisper White Card Stock.  The balloons are from Balloon Celebration stamped in Crushed Curry. It was then die cut using next to largest Lots of  Labels Framelits.  The edges were smudged using Emerald Envy Ink and a Sponge Dauber.

This card was so much fun to make.  Of course I had to make my own envelope, I used 12″ x 12″ Whisper White Card Stock and the Stampin’ Up! Envelope Punch Board.

Hope you like my card!

Up Up and away Spring is coming! Peekaboo Peach and Mint Macaron.

I wanted to show more sky and I wanted to feature the Peekaboo Peach with the Mint Macaron.  So here is my offering for today.  I fun fold, and this card was so easy to complete after laying all the pieces out they all fit together perfectly in this little tableau.

The card base is Peekaboo Peach Card Stock cut at 8 1/2 ” X 4 1/4 inches.  Then I folded each side in to meet in the middle by scoring at 2 1/4″ and 6 1/4″ on the long side. Next use a  piece of Carried Away Designer Series Paper (FREE in the Sale A Bration Catalog with a $50 purchase). I used coordinating prints on the top of bottom flap.

img_6055_edited-1

Next I Die cut the balloon in Mint Macaron using the Up and Away Thinlets Die.  I also first laid out the colors I wanted in the order I wanted them on the inside of the balloon.  I sued Peekaboo Peach and Watermelon Wonder Card Stock die cutting the strips from the Up And Away Thinlets dies.  Using a silicone sheet and Fine Tip Glue  I carefully glued  all the inside balloon pieces.

I also die cut the little clouds from the same die cut set using Thick Whisper White Card Stock.  The ballon was adhered carefully overlapping just a bit with SNAIL Adhesive.  I then adhered the clouds using Stamping Dimensionals.

The Sentiment is fro the Lift Me Up Stamp Set and stamped on the lower right front in Basic Black Ink.

img_6061_edited-1

The inside was finished by adhereing a piece of the Carried Away DSP to the middle part of the card.  The adhereing a second layer using Whisper White Card Stock.  I stamped the smallest ballon stamp in Peekaboo Peach.  I also finished the back of the balloon by die cutting matching stripes, gluing in place with the Fine Tip Glue Pen and trimming to fit with small paper snips.   img_6058_edited-1

This card is so colorful and cheerful, it would also make a nice get well card with the right sentiment.

Stampin’ Up! Thoughtful Branches stamp set with Floral Boutique Designer Series Paper background

Stampin’ Up! Thoughtful Branches Sentiment  and Night of Navy Card Stock create a perfect ‘masculine’ feeling “Your in My Thoughts” Card but is appropriate for an elegant woman as well!

Thoughtful Branches Bundle is only going to be available until August 31!  If you don’t have this versatile stamp set, order it today!  I love the sentiments on it, AND all the fun things you can do with the trees, tree, etc.

The Floral Boutique Designer Series Paper is perfect for elegance don’t you agree?  There are so many coordinating patterns in this Series.  I posted a card several weeks ago using four of the patterns!  All lovely, hard to choose just one.  This card Clean and Simple Card  features two designs in this paper series.

The card base is Night of Navy Card Stock, the lower half is Flora Boutique DSP adhered with SNAIL adhesive.  Using Night of Navy Ink I stamped the sentiment from Thoughtful Branches Stamp Set on Whisper White Card Stock.  I then die cut it using an appropriate size of scalloped die from the Layering Circles Framelit Set.  I then die cut the next layer using Night of Navy in the very next size scalloped Die.  The final layer is two sizes up scalloped Circle using the Floral Boutique DSP.  I then adhered it to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Using Night of Navy Solid Bakers Twine I wrapped it around the lower 1/3 several times and tied it in a bow.

The card front was completed by adding two medium size Metal Rim Pearls to the right upper side.

The inside was even cleaner and simpler~I layered the Floral Boutique DSP and Whisper White Card Stock and added two strips of contrasting Floral Boutique Washi Tape to the left side.  Quick, clean and so pretty.  Hope you like it!

Stampin’ Up! Dapper Denim Card Stock, By the Shore DSP and Seaside Shore Stamp set.

August 1!  Oh, has it been a hot summer so far here in North Georgia.  We are lucky though, our high doesn’t usually get past 88 or so.  But of course our humidity is 200%….  Makes it feel like 110 degrees. I think of going to the seashore, for us it usually means West coast of Florida.  It’s very hot down there this summer too, so I guess we’ll just stay home in the AC.  Making this card made me yearn for a condo on the beach with a big window looking over the beach and water and luxurious AC….I guess that defeats the purpose.

This little fish is very happily cool in his environment.  I made this card by first stamping the fish in Mint Macaron  Ink on Very Vanilla Card Stock.  I hand colored him using Dapper Denim ink and a Blender Pen.  The bubbles are stamped in Dapper Denim and colored with Dapper Denim.  The little star fix and the clams are stamped in Crumb Cake.  This was die cut using a smaller oval from the Layering Oval Framelit dies.  The background was die cut using a bit larger scalloped oval from the same set.

The stripped  layer is a layer of By the Sea Shore DSP on a layer of Soft Sky Card Stock cut 1/4 inch larger.  Before adhering the pieces together I placed a length of Dapper Denim Ruched Ribbon across the lower 1/3 of the piece using SNAIL to fasten it down.

The bottom layer is a piece of the By The Sea Shore DSP , embossed with the Seaside Embossing Folder then adhered to a layer of Dapper Denim Card Stock and adhered to the card base using SNAIL adhesive.

The stripped layer was adhered using SNAIL.  The fish piece was placed using Stampin’ Dimensionals to give it a bit of definition.  A bow was made using Dapper Denim Ruched Ribbon and placed in the middle of the horizontal ribbon with Glue Dots.

The inside of the card was completed by adhering a layer of Dapper Denim to the back.  I cut a layer of very vanilla allowing 3/4″ on each side, I then daubed the edges (smudged) with Dapper Denim to give it a bit of dimension.

The Seaweed, shells and Starfish are stamps from the By the Seashore Stamp set and I stamped them in Crumb Cake.  This is a fairly quick and easy card.  Hope you’ll try it.
