I was inspired to make this Happy birthday card using Christmas in the Making stamp set from my friend Libby! In case you couldn’t tell I love cats! They just make me happy! So thinking outside the box with this stamp set makes it useful year round! I have even seen some super cute Halloween cards using this set!
I also love to color and so I was incredibly excited when Stampin’ Up! brought back their line of Stampin’ Blends Alcohol ink markers complete with skin tones, and color lifter! This was so easy to do it qualified as a quick and easy card!
I started with an A2 card base in the Thick White cardstock. Cut this at 8.5″ x 5.5″. Score and fold in half at 4.25″. The Crumb Cake layer is cut at 5.25″ x 4″, the DSP layer is cut at 4 7/8″ x 3 5/8″, and the Shimmer White layer is 4 3/4″ x 3.5″ . You don’t have to use Shimmery white card stock with Alcohol markers, but I do love the look and blending smoothness! Stamp the Sentiments in Pool Party ink and remember to make your envelope pretty!
This Dragonfly Dreams Gold Embossed card was from one of our weekly color challenges. It was quite a mix of colors and the gold just called out for heat embossing! The Dragonfly Dreams stamp set was a great way to get my colors in!
Simply start with a Very vanilla thick cardstock cut for an A2 card, finished size 5.5″ x 4.25″. The Old Olive layer is cut at 5 3/8″ x 4 1/8″. and the inside very vanilla layer is cut at 5 1/8″ x 3 7/8″. Emboss the top of the card using the Hexagon emboss folder. The inner Old Olive layer is 3.5″ square. And the inner heat embossed Vanilla layer is 3 3/8″ square.
See the video tutorial below for details on heat embossing, and remember to make your envelope pretty!
Had so much fun making this Stampin’ Up! Cool Treats Waterfall Card. Fun bold summer colors in a waterfall card? Yes please! This technique came up in conversation at our last Stamp Club meeting, and I had requests to teach the technique again. Loving the Cool Treats stamp set for this motion card!
Here is the motion picture:
Start with an A2 card base. Some people only use the card front, but I actually like the full card to write in! However it’s nice to know your options!
The Melon Mambo layer is cut at 5.25″ x 4″. And the Lemon Lime Twist strip is cut at 1″ x 4.25″. Next the white pull strip is cut at 2 1/4″ x 9″. Score at 2″, 2.75″, 3.5″, and 4.25″. The Melon Mambo mats are 2.25″ square, and the white stamped layers are 2″ square. See the tutorial below for full assembly.
This Stampin’Up! Label Me Pretty Powder Pink card is a very Clean and Simple card. Quick and easy, and I show an easy way to make sure your pretty ribbon from a double strand knot stays on tops where it shows pretty!
Start with an A2 cardbase in Powder Pink cut at 11″ x 4.25″. Score and fold at 5.5″. The Very Vanilla layer is cut at 5.25″ x 4″ and embossed using the Cable Knit textured impressions embossing folder.
Stamp the sentiment and punch using the Pretty Label punch, punch another out of Powder Pink cardstock. Cut the pink one in half and use to border the sentiment. Pop up using dimensionals.
There’s a simple trick to keep decorative ribbon laying flat on top when making a double strand knot, see the video below!
Today’s project is a super easy Happy Birthday Framelit card and video tutorial. Again with the bright cheery colors! The new in colors are really fun!
I started with an A2 Lemon Lime Twist card base. Cut this at 11″ x 4.25″ score and fold at 5.5″. The next layer is Whisper White cut at 5.25″ x 4″ and embossed with the hexagon folder. Die cut the Happy Birthday in both Tempting Turquoise and Lemon Lime twist. Then layer them together and attach using the fine tip glue pen or the Tombo liquid glue. I left the top end of the “Y” unglued until I tucked the strings underneath.
Here’s the video tutorial:
Stamp and punch the balloons and layer on the solid cardstock balloons. I used irridescent gift bag stuffing for the balloon strings. Remember to make your envelope pretty!
This At Home with you Bundle birthday card was one of the cards we made at a recent Stamp A Stack event. The versatile bundle has so many possibilities for every season!
Start with a heavy white cardstock cut at 8.5″ x 5.5″. Score and fold in half at 4.25″. The Early Espresso layer is cut at 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″, and the Crumb cake cardstock layer is cut at 5.25″ x 4″.
Emboss the Crumb Cake layer using the brick wall embossing folder and color the debossed side with a chalk marker. Stamp the images on white paper and use the framelits to cut them out. Color using the Stampin’ write markers.
For the window panes I cut a strip of sponge and very lightly inked it with Soft sky to color them in (lightly!) Remember to make the envelope pretty!
