Happy Birthday Thinlit

To get the gorgeous happy birthday sentiment for today’s sample card, run the Happy Birthday Thinlit through the Big Shot on the Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper and then once on the striped DSP from the Birthday Memories DSP pack.  Stack them on top of each other a bit askew. It creates a colorful shadow for the sentiment.

The little baker is stamped in Early Espresso ink, colored with markers and cut out on the Big Shot with his matching thinlit.

Emboss Resist Technique

Emboss Resist is a technique that creates a lot of impact for very little effort.   On a small piece of whisper white card stock, you simply stamp the Brushstrokes image in Versamark ink, sprinkle with clear or white embossing powder, and then melt it with a heat gun.

Using sponge wedges, sponge each of the five colors right over the top of the embossing.  Wipe the remaining ink off the embossed stripes with a paper towel.  So much fun while being a quick technique. Try it out!

Label Me Pretty Bundle

Using the little label from the Label Me Pretty stamp set, stamp the curly cue in Fresh Fig ink and the sentiment “You’re the Best” in Tranquil tide.  Just punch it out with the coordinating punch.  I love that Stampin’ UP makes this so easy.  Top it off with a In Color Bitty Bow. I chose the Lemon Lime Twist one. Done!

Stampin’ UP New In Colors

Stampin' UP In Colors 2017-2019

It is always a fun time of year when Stampin’ UP releases the new in color palette that is good for the next two years.  I was ecstatic when I saw the new Lemon Lime Twist and Berry Burst.  It reminds me so much of those neon colors that I grew up with as a teenager in the ’80s.  Simply fun and beautiful!  Leave me a comment and tell me what your new favorite in color is this year.

New Glossy Paper

I am so glad to see that in the new catalog that Stampin’ UP reintroduced the glossy white cardstock.  This paper has a nice shine to it without having to add anything.  I used it here for the punched daisies on these 3×3 gift cards. The center of the flower is punched from in color card stock using the 1/2″ circle punch.  It is highlighted with clear wink of stella.

These cute little daisies couldn’t be easier to make with the new daisy punch.  These 3×3 cards happen to fit perfectly in the new wood crate framelit die box.   Simply run the die through twice to get two pieces. I used the Wood Textures DSP stack for this.  Assemble by gluing the two bottom pieces together and folding along the score lines and gluing them inside the edges.

Amazing Moms

Mom’s Special Day

Mother’s Day is one of those holidays that has become so commercialized people have really forgotten what is about.  One of the best ways to show mom that you really care is to take the time to do something special with her.  Flowers are always nice but moms really appreciate the time you spend with them.  Make a memory.  Give it a try and make her a handmade card!  You don’t have to be an artist.  Let’s just take the time to make her feel special.

I was really touched to find that my mother-in-law has held onto all the handmade cards I’ve made her over the years in a box.  She had ones that I even forgot I made.  She is truly a special lady.

Colors

The colors for this card were pulled directly from the Succulent Garden designer series paper.  The paper is always a good starting point when designing a new card.  The colors always look amazing together. This paper is on sale. It was $11.00 NOW $6.60.

Everyday Tags Stamp Set

I am sad that this stamp set is retiring. It has some really great sentiments besides being used with the framelits.  The good news though is that they are on sale. The clear mount set was $19.00 and is NOW $14.25.

Making the Card

To make the sentiment the two colors, color the sentiment with the calypso coral marker. The outside border is colored with the old olive marker.  Simply huff over the colored stamp a couple times to re-moisten the stamp, and stamp as usual.  Cut out the entire image with the 2 inch circle punch. Then sponge with the sweet sugarplum ink around the edges. Cut out a piece of the succulent paper with a 2 1/2 inch punch. Layer the two pieces with dimensionals.  I went back and added some sparkle with the wink of stella clear pen on the border.

Timeless Tags Thank You Gift

Thank you gift made with Timeless Tags

Fun Thank You Gift

These fun little thank you gifts were for the people that placed an order with me last month.  I used the That’s the Tag Stamp set to highlight the cut out shape from the Timeless Tags Thinlits Die.  It was stamped on the lace paper from the Falling In Love Designer Series paper.  I ended up cutting three separate layers.

The first layer was the lace paper stamped with the oval dots image and cut with the butterfly die.  The second layer was an oval cut with the pink and tan bokeh paper and the third layer had the To: and From: sentiment stamped on the back.  I layered the three together with the Tombow glue lining up the hole at the top.

I finished it up with a bit of the Very Vanilla 1/4″ Satin Ribbon and one of the Falling In Love embellishment flowers.

Nailed It Tools Card Image

Masculine Card

At times, it can seem like there are really limited options out there for making a masculine looking card.  Stampin’ UP has done a great job by creating this bundle of products to do just that.  Appropriately named the Nailed It Bundle, this stamp set and coordinating framelits make this task simple.

Pair it with the Hexagons Dynamic Textured Embossing Folder and you have a great looking card with minimal effort.  But no one else will guess that!

A Great Tip

Here is a great tip to get a good impression from the embossing folder.  Before running the silver foil paper piece through the Big Shot in the dynamic embossing folder, spritz the white paper backing with a little water using the Stampin’ Spritzer. It will soften the paper enough so it won’t crack.

Remember that the sandwich for the Big Shot requires one less clear plate as the folder is a lot thicker.

Cupcakes & Carousels DSP Stack

This super simple card is using the fabulous Cupcakes & Carousels DSP paper stack.  I am loving the colors in this DSP.  It can be used in so many ways.

Today’s technique is simply to stamp the dancing girl image from the Beautiful You stamp set on very vanilla cardstock and the DSP.  I used early espresso ink for this.  I cut around the dress and hat with my paper snips on the DSP piece. Then you simply glue that piece on to the very vanilla piece to get the colorful dress image.  Then cut it out with the stitched shapes framelit and layer it with the Sale-a-bration glimmer paper in Bermuda Bay and another piece of the matching DSP cut in the square shape.  Pop them all up on dimensionals.
