Delicate Details Birthday Card, Sale-a-bration Ends Friday

Here is a quick and pretty card using 3 Sale-a-bration items, Delicate Details and Avant-Garden stamp sets and the Metallic Ribbon. The flower is from the Succulent Framelits.
Are you wondering how I got three stamps spaced evenly?  I used the "I" block and my grid paper to line everything up and put 3 stamps onto one block. Easy Peasy!
I stamped the Lace stamps with Craft White Ink and embossed with White Embossing Powder. The sentiment comes from the Avant-Garden stamp set. I embossed that too.
I finished off the card with the Metallic Ribbon and a flower using the Succulent Framelits in Watermelon Wonder. The center of the flower has a Metallic Shape.

Cutting Guide:

4 1/4" x 11" Crumb Cake Cardstock, scored at 5 1/2"
3 3/4" x 5" Crumb Cake Cardstock
3 7/8" x 5 1/8" Watermelon Wonder
Scraps of Watermelon Wonder for flower

Happy 8th Birthday Anthony!

As soon as I saw this set I knew I would be making my grandson a card for his birthday.


This was such a fun shaker card to make for Anthony (my grandson). The look on his face when he opened the card was priceless. I stamped the monster onto Shimmer White Cardstock, which is a good alternative to Watercolor Paper. Then watercolored with Bermuda Bag and Basic Grey (for his pads). Used my Project Life Pen to color in his horns and claws. Still working on my water coloring skills. I used the Sprinkles Embellishments for the shaker part and also punched with the Sprinkles Punch using the Sale-a-bration Bermuda Bay Glimmer Paper ( now sold out.....insert sad face).

The Balloons are from Balloon Pop-Up Thinlits. They are also die cut with the SAB Glimmer Paper.
Inside the card I die cut the number 8 ( Large Number Framelits) since he turned 8 on the 20th and used the Candle Border Punch for the candles. I added some Gold Glimmer paper to the back for the candle flames and a piece of Peekaboo Peach for the candles.

And here is the Birthday Boy with his sisters, Jocelyn and Gianna, while they were waiting for their Pizookies.
I was sitting right next to him for dinner, so my photo is crooked. He couldn't wait for his Pizookie at BJ's.

Supply List:

Cutting Guide:
4 1/4" x 11" Bermuda Bay Cardstock, scored at 5 1/2"
4" x 5 1/4" Peekaboo Peach cardstock
Scrap of Shimmery White Cardstock for the Monster
Scraps of the Bermuda Bay Shimmery Paper (no longer available....insert sad face)

Avant-Garden Thank You Card

I can't believe that Sale-a-bration is almost over (Friday, March 31st,) and this is the first time I've used this flower from Avant-Garden. But it works perfect for the Stampin' Up! Only Challenge, A Favorite April Theme. I think flowers speak April, don't you? You can play along too: http://suochallenges.com/

So I started casing Kimberly Van Diepen's card, but really my card looks nothing like hers. The only thing that is the same is the stamped flowers and the wash behind the flowers, everything else is different. I love when you can make it your own. I really did love her version which is why I saved it on Pinterest.
I started off with a wash of Crumb Cake using my Aqua Painter onto Shimmery White Cardstock. Then I stamped the flower in Versamark Ink and embossed with Black Embossing Powder, (I embossed the sentiment too). Colored in the flowers with the Pool Party Marker and the leaves with Pear Pizzazz. I spattered Clear Wink of Stella and Pool Party by flicking the ink using the inside of the lid.

The sentiment is die cut with the smallest circle of the Stitched Shapes Framelits. I added some Black Thread behind the sentiment and popped up with Dimensionals. Before adhering the sentiment, I wrapped the Pool Party Stitched Ribbon around the top layer and added that small piece of Doily on the right. Then adhered the Pool Party layer. That layer I used more Dimensionals to pop it up on the Thick Whisper White Card Base.

Can you see all the sparkle?

Cutting Guide:

4 1/4" x 11" Thick Whisper White Cardstock, scored at 5 1/2"
3 3/4" x 5" Shimmery White Cardstock
3 7/8" x 5 1/8" Pool Party

Dragonfly Dreams Congratulations Card

My friend Patty Bennett just promoted to Platinum. This is a BIG deal people. Patty is also the leader of our Luv2stamp group. So proud of her and all her hard work. I was going to give this to Patty last week and she was sick so I sent it to her. She was really surprised.
The first layer of my card is embossed with the Falling Petals Embossing Folder. Do you see the Doilies on the right side? Each piece has 3 "humps" and you only need 1 Doily. Make sure your Doilies don't go beyond the card base (4 1/4") or you won't be able to put it in an envelope.
Then I layered a piece of the 5/8" Organza Ribbon and Silver Sequins. For the ribbon I took a 6" piece and put a strip of Tear and Tape down the center, then pleated, so back and forth, added another piece of Tear and Tape down the center of that and put my row of Silver Sequins.
I die cut the Dragonflies from Vellum and Silver Foil Paper and layered them together with Glue Dots. Don't worry about the Glue Dots showing because you will add some Pearls to cover them up. To add the Silver Thread, I added a couple of Glue Dots added the thread and then cut up some Dimensionals to put on the back and laid that down over part of the ribbon like in the photo.

The congratulations is from the stamp set, So In Love and stamped in Black Archival Ink. I used the Classic Label punch to punch it out. Added Dimensionals to the back and a couple of Pearls on each side.

I also made her a Doily Tag like HERE! and used the Dragonflies instead of the Life Me Up Balloons. I can't believe I forgot to take a photo of it......but I layered like in the card.


Cutting Guide:

4 1/4" x 11" Thick Whisper White cardstock, scored at 5 1/2"
4" x 5 1/4" thick Whisper White cardstock
3" x 4" Vellum and Silver Foil Paper die cut with the Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits

Happy Celebrations, Cool Treats Thank You Cards

If you place an order from me in my Online Store this week, chances are you will receive one of these fun cards.
I love this color combo, Pool Party and Peekaboo Peach. Its fun to combine stamp sets and an embossing folder. And don't forget about the Tasty Treats Designer Series Paper and the Bermuda Bay Glimmer Paper (SAB).
After adding a piece of Doily to the larger banner I laid all the pieces together, added the Linen Thread and put a staple through all the layers.
Then just tie your bow and it almost covers up the staple. Plus, if you have a lot of layers it will all be held together with the staple. 

Don't forget to "wink" your ice cream with Wink of Stella. Then I added a Bermuda Bay Enamel Shape to the ice cream.



Cutting Guide:

5 1/2" x 8 1/2" Peekaboo Peach cardstock, scored at 4 1/4"
3 7/8" x 5 1/8" Pool Party
4" x 5 1/4" Thick Whisper White cardstock
1" x 5" Tasty Treats Designer Series paper
3/4" x 4 1/2" Tasty Treats Designer Series paper
1/4" x 3 1/2" Bermuda Bay Glimmer Paper (SAB)
Scraps of Peekaboo Peach and Thick Whisper White for ice cream cone

Nailed It!

This is another Club Card for March. My Club gals requested a card using the Urban Underground Suite of products. I managed to use the Hexagons Dynamic Embossing Folder, Urban Underground Specialty Paper, Embellishments and Washi Tape as well as the Nailed it Stamp set.
The Hexagons Dynamic Embossing folder makes such a bold presentation along with the Urban Underground Specialty Paper.
The hammer is stamped with Stazon Ink onto the Silver Foil Paper and stamped again on Real Red cardstock. Both are die cut and just the red handle is adhered to the Silver Hammer. Looks just like one you would find at your local hardware store, doesn't it? The hammer was mounted to the Stitched Shape Circle with Dimensionals. Stamp the nails before you add the hammer.
Because the card base is Black, you really need something inside so you can sign your name, so I thought the Lots of Labels Framelits would be perfect with some of the Urban Underground Washi Tape on one end.

Cutting Guide:

5 1/2" x 8 1/2" Basic Black cardstock, scored at 4 1/4"
2 3/4" x 5 1/4" Delightful Dijon cardstock embossed with the Dynamic Hexagons Folder
1 1/2" x 5 1/4" Urban Underground Designer Series Paper
3" x 3" Very Vanilla cardstock die cut with the Stitched Shape Circle
3" x 5" Very Vanilla cardstock die cut with the largest Lots of Labels Framelit

Supply List:

So In Love Congratulations Card

I am so in LOVE with this bundle, and add the Sweet Sugarplum Glimmer Paper (SAB) and you have a beautiful card. I finally cut into the Falling in Love Designer Series Paper. Have you seen all the prints? GORGEOUS! This could also be a wedding card, birthday, or anniversary card, by just changing the sentiment. There are several sentiments in this set to choose from.

I have a couple of tips for you when cutting out these delicate dies. Lay the Glimmer Paper facing down. This way you cut into the plastic coating first. Now you couldn't do this if you were cutting out letters, numbers or words, but for this you can. And using the Precision Base Plate is a must as well.
 The pieces just fall out using the Big Shot Die Brush.
I stamped the flower from the So In Love Stamp set in Sweet Sugarplum and die cut with the Stitched Shapes Framelits, and the scallop circle is from the Layering Circles. Don't forget to "wink" your flower with Wink of Stella, and add the 1/4" Vanilla Ribbon.
Cutting Guide:

5 1/2" x 8 1/2" Sahara Sand Cardstock, scored at 5 1/4"
4" x 5 1/4" Falling In Love Designer Series Paper
5/8" x 3 1/4" Sweet Sugarplum cardstock
2 1/2" x 2 1/2" Sahara Sand cardstock die cut with the Stitched Shape Circle Die
2 3/4" x 2 3/4" Sweet Sugarplum cardstock, die cut with the Layering Circles Die
