In Color Bouquet

Stampin' UP Beautiful Bouquet Bundle

Beautiful Bouquet Bundle

I designed this card for my friend’s birthday and had a lot of fun combining the In Color’s from the annual catalog and the Beautiful Bouquet Bundle elements.  I used a Basic Black card base and framed the bouquet with Berry Burst card stock.  It was then set on a Whisper White ruffled background.

The sentiment was from the coordinating stamp set in the bundle and was stamped in Tranquil Tide ink and punched out with the Duet Banner punch.

Washi Wonder

It was fun creating a lot of texture with this card.  I used the Pinewood Planks embossing folder for the backdrop in whisper white.  After cutting my large circle with the Stitched Shapes Framelits, I ran it through the Big Shot with the Oh My Stars embossing folder for even more texture.

Washi Tape is often overlooked in the catalog.  It is actually a versatile element in the crafting arsenal.  I used the Basics Pack 3 Washi Tape to create the whimsical banner behind the “50” element.  I lined up the washi tape on a scrap of paper, trimmed it down and punched the ends in a banner with the Banner Triple punch.  I also used it inside the card to add a punch of color. So simple!

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.

This stamp set is so cute.  I love the built in texture it provides on all the little shapes.  It coordinates so perfectly with the wood crate.

Seaside Shore Birthday Card

A Mix of Old and New Products

This seaside themed birthday card features two of the new in colors: Tranquil Tide and Lemon Lime Twist.  The Happy Birthday thinlet is cut from the Serene Scenery DSP and it gives an ombre effect to the sentiment.

The fish are stamped on whisper white cardstock and cut out with paper snips.  The background is stamped using the seaweed and bubbles images from the Seaside Shore Stamp Set.

As a finishing touch, washi tape adorns the bottom as well as the new clear faceted gems.

Nailed It Bundle

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!

143074G

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.

Life Looks Beautiful On You

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.

Watercoloring Inside The Lines

Card features Inside the Lines DSP from Sale-a-bration

Inside the Lines DSP

The Inside the Lines DSP is the perfect complement to Stampin’ UP’s new watercolor pencils in the Occasions catalog.  You get 3 sheets each of 4 different designs in the pack of DSP.  It is only available through March 31st though as it is a Sale-a-bration item.  The small flower print is perfect for the smudgy flowers I created here.

Bright Palette

itldsp

This bright color palette makes for a cheerful birthday card.  The colors play out in the watercoloring on the sentiment as well as the watercoloring done on the embossed image at the bottom of the card.  It is really simple to color the embossing with the matching pencil and use a blender pen to smudge it.

The sentiment “Enjoy” was stamped in Stazon and watercolored with the pencils and blended with a blender pen.  The sentiment comes from the Everyday Tags stamp set.

Celebrate with Mickey

Punch Art Mickey Symbol on Birthday Blast Background

Disney Days

Geez, there are days when I wish my kids were back at Disney World begging to ride the Dumbo ride.  It is truly hard to believe that my oldest kids (I have boy/girl twins) will be 25 years old in a few days.  When I saw the Birthday Blast stamp set, I knew that it would be a great backdrop for this card.  The large star stamp really makes the Mickey symbol pop off the card.
