Make a Wish! Shaker Card

Shaker Card 1

 

Hello Everyone,

I have a super fun card to share with you today!  This started as a simple shaker and grew into a fun and exciting birthday card 🙂  There’s a lot going on in this card so I have several pictures and I’ll make sure to list all of the supplies!

So, we’ll start with the Shaker.  This was created using the Stars Framelits from Stampin’ Up.  The cupcake is from the Carnival Cupcakes set from Mama Elephant and was colored using Copic Markers.  I used patterned paper for the backing and front of the shaker.

The Banner and Sentiment were both stamped using the Simon Says Stamp – Big Birthday Wishes stamp set:Big Birthday WishesThe adorable Bunny and Bear are both from the Carnival Cupcakes stamp set.  These were stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black in and colored in with Copic Markers.  They were cut out using the Fabulous coordinating die set!!

For the background I embossed a 5.25″ x 4″ piece of Whisper White cardstock using the Polka Dot embossing folder from Stampin’ Up!, I then scribbled over each raised dot using Tempting Turquoise and Strawberry Slush Stampin’ Write markers.

I then added a few stars and sequins and BAM, there’s a fun card that any child would love!!

Twitterpated ~ Sneak Peek

Bambi_Twitterpated_8

Hi Stampers!

I’m back to share with you a Sneak Peek at a couple of items from the 2015 Occasions Catalog!

When I attended the Occasions Catalog Kick-off there were two things I knew I had to do when I saw the You Plus Me stamp set.

  1. I HAD to buy that stamp set, it’s has wonderful sentiments that can be used for any “love” occasion!You Plus Me Stamp Set
  2. I HAD to create a Bambi card with that adorable “twitterpated” stamp!!Bambi_Twitterpated_2

The first thing I did for this beautiful card was color the Bambi image.  This is such a classic scene, I had to use it!  The image was colored using my Copic Markers so I could get the full range of color I needed.

I added a double matte behind the image to really enhance all of the details!

  • Card Base: 5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″ in Blushing Bride
  • Matte 1: 5 3/8″ x 4 1/8″ in Whisper White
  • Matte 2: 5 1/4″ x 4″ in Strawberry Slush
  • Image: 5 1/8″ x 3 7/8″

I heat embossed the twitterpated sentiment onto a piece of Strawberry Slush card stock using Whisper White Stampin Emboss Powder.  I punched out the sentiment using the Extra Large Oval Punch and adhered it to the image using Stampin Dimensionals.

To add a little bit more dimension, I punched several flowers out of Blushing Bride card stock using the Itty Bitty Flower Punch.  I added a dot to the center of each flower using the Strawberry Slush Stampin Write Marker.  This helped the flowers tie into the flowers in the image!

Ok, ready for the second Sneak Peek!

I used a brand new Confetti Hearts Border Punch for the inside.  Isn’t that so adorable!!Bambi_Twitterpated_5

That’s it for sneak peeks today!  I hope you like what you’ve seen so far.  The Occasions Catalog will be released on January 6th so mark your calendars!!

Beautifully Simple Christmas Card

Stampin' Up! Snowy Christmas Card uses Mingle All The Way and Endless Wishes Stamp Sets from the 2014 Holiday Catalog.

Hi Everyone.  Today I’m going to share with you a quick and easy Christmas card.  We all love to save time especially around the holidays!  This card takes no time at all, but is so stunning!

Here are the paper sizes you will need:

  • Card Base – 5 ½” x 4 ¼” in Cherry Cobbler
  • Matte 1 – 5 3/8” x 4 1/8” in Soft Sky
  • Matte 2 – 5 ¼” x 4” in Whisper White
  • Small Matte 1 – 2 ¾” x 3 ¾” in Soft Sky
  • Small Matte 2 – 2 5/8” x 3 5/8” in Cherry Cobbler
  • Small Matte 3 – 2 ½” x 3 ½” in Whisper White

I dry embossed the large piece Whisper White card stock using the Northern Flurry Embossing folder.  It’s hard to tell in the picture, but I also spritzed this sheet with Vanilla Shimmer Smooch to add a little sparkle!

Using Soft Sky Ink, I stamped the small piece of Whisper White card stock with sever snowflakes from the Endless Wishes stamp set.

I wanted to add a little more sparkle here so I mixed some Cherry Cobbler Stampin Emboss Powder with red glitter (you can get this from any craft store). Using this mixture, I heat embossed the Mingle All the Way sentiment from the Mingle All The Way stamp set!

Next, I attached the 3 small pieces of card stock and tied a 13″ piece of Cherry Cobbler bakers twine around all 3 pieces.

Add a few rhinestones and voila!

I wanted to make sure my dry embossed snowflakes had enough POP, so I added 2 rhinestones which were colored using my darkest Cherry Cobbler Blendabilites marker.

And what is a Christmas Card without a sentiment on the inside???? 🙂

I added a piece of Whisper White card stock that I stamped with snowflakes in Soft Sky and added the “Celebrate the Season” sentiment in Cherry Cobbler using the Endless Wishes stamp set!

A few more snowflakes were added to the flap of the envelope to finish things off!!

That’s it!  A great simple card that anyone would love, and the Mingle All The Way sentiment is so fun.  This could be for any winter holiday, not just Christmas, and maybe even a winter birthday!

A Spin on Paper Pumpkin – October Card 2

October_PP_2-7

Hello Again!  I want to share with you another “Spin on Paper Pumpkin”.  I just love the adorable stamps in this month’s kit and for this card I used “There’s no such thing as too much pie”.  Isn’t that the cutest stamp and just perfect for the holidays!!

I used the polka dotted pie box to make a pie for this card.  I’ll walk you through the steps!

First, I used the 4th largest Circle Die and a tab from the pie box and ran it through the Big Shot.

October 2014 Paper Pumpkin

For the crust, I used the Large Scallop Edgelit die and ran it through the Big shot twice so I could get waves on both sides. I cut 3 of the “ovals” and rounded off the ends.

The pie pan was cut from a piece of 1/2″ x 2 1/2″ Silver Glimmer Paper.

For the cherry on top, I used the Cupcake Builder Punch and a piece of Cherry Cobbler card stock.

Next, I cut the label using a die from the Apothecary Accents set and another piece of the polka dot pie box.

The sentiment was heat embossed onto a piece of Cherry Cobbler card stock using Whtie Stampin’ Emboss powder and then attached to die cut to make such a cute little label!

October 2014 Paper Pumpkin

I used a 5 1/2″ x 41/4″ card base in Baked Brown Sugar.  And for he matte, I stamped a beautiful background using the I Love Lace stamp set onto a piece of Very Vanilla card stock cut to 5 1/4″ x 4″, using Sahara Sand.  I sponged the edges lightly with Baked Brown Sugar to give it a vintage feel.

I added a strip of 1″ Cherry Cobbler Sheer Linen Ribbon to the bottom and tied a piece of Linen Thread to make a very simple bow.  More Linen Thread was looped and added behind the sentiment to give it a little more detail!

That’s it!  Super Easy, and CUTE!!!!

I hope you enjoyed todays Spin and always remember to Think Outside the Paper Pumpkin Box!

Thanks For Stopping By!

Wetlands Birthday

Stampin' Up! Birthday Card made using Wetlands, Four Feathers, Six Sided Sampler and Sassy Salutations

Hi Stampers!  Today I want to share with you a birthday card that I made for my husband.  I always love the challenge of creating masculine cards and the Stampin’ Up! holiday catalog has these wonderful feathers that can be used in SO MANY ways!!  It seemed perfectly fitting to put feathers on the card with a goose!

So on to the card…… I started by sponging an evening water scene and wanted my goose to look like he was swimming on a lake.  Before stamping the goose from the Wetlands stamp set, I put a sticky note over the legs so they wouldn’t get inked up.  I stamped the image on a piece of Whisper White cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  The goose was colored in using my Smoky Slate Blendabilities!

To make the reflection, I traced the first stamped image onto a piece of vellum, then flipped it over and transferred the outline below the original stamped image.  The reflection was then water colored to create a nice soft reflected look.

I sponged the night sky and the water using Pacific Point and Night of Navy inks.  I punched a 2 1/2″ circle to mask off the sky and create a moon.  Water lines were created randomly using a white gel pen.

Stampin' Up! Birthday Card made using Wetlands, Four Feathers, Six Sided Sampler and Sassy Salutations

For the card base, I used a piece of Basic Black cardstock cut to make a 5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″ card.  A Basic Grey matte was added (5 1/4″ x 4″) which I used my Paper Piercing tool to punch a border.

I wanted to add a little detail to the scene so I got out the Big Shot and used the largest framelit from the Deco Labels collection.  This added just the right touch to the card!

Using the scraps from the scene, I stamped the lined feather from the Four Feathers stamp set this allowed the blue from the sponged scene to show through.  I stamped one more feather onto a vellum sheet and heat embossed in black.

Time for the Big Shot again!!!  I used the coordinating Four Feathers framelits to cut out each of the feathers I stamped.  I also cut out a feather from Silver Glimmer Paper, without stamping it first.

The feathers seemed a little bland on their own, so I stamped a hexagon from the Six Sided Sampler stamp set onto Basic Black cardstock and heat embossed in Smoky Slate Stampin Emboss Powder.  This added a great accent to the bottom of the feathers!

I heat embossed the Happy Birthday sentiment using Basic Black Stampin’ Emboss Powder onto a piece of Smoky Slate card stock.  The end was cut to resemble a banner and then I used the Piercing Tool once again to add some detail.

On the inside of the card I added a 5 1/4″ x 4″ matte using Whisper White Cardstock and added 2 more stamped and cut out feathers!

My husband loved receiving this card for his birthday and I think this was another successful masculine card!  I love the new Four Feathers stamp set from the holiday catalog and can see myself using it year round!

I hope you have enjoyed this post.  Thanks for stopping by!
