Birthday Wit

Have you noticed the Birthday Wit stamp set in the Occasions catalog?  It’s on page 9.  Since its basically all words it doesn’t stand out very well.  It is a fun set to have to make some birthday cards.

For this card I used the Painted with Love Specialty Designer Series Paper.  It has gold foil accents.  And painted brushstroke patterns.  Some of the patterns are a bit bright for me so on this card I used the large sentiment from the Birthday Wit stamp set.  I actually stamped it multiple times in a variety of colors – Calypso Coral, Melon Mambo, Powder Pink and Rich Razzleberry.  The main panel on the card was stamped with Soft Suede ink.  and then I cut out all the block words and covered them with the colored words.  This is another one of those short front cards where you can see the designer paper on both side.  I used the White cotton ribbon on this one.  And finished with some Gold Metallic dots.

I think it turned out to be a fun card!

There are only 3 more weeks of Sale-A-Bration left – if you haven’t placed an order to get your free product choices be sure to do it soon.  There are some great options and once they are gone – they are gone.  Now there are two things that will carry over into our new catalog – the Celebrate You Thinlits and the Basket Weave Embossing Folder.  But they won’t be free you’ll have to pay for them then and the coordinating stamp sets won’t be available after March 31st.

SHOP NOW and Sale-A-Brate!

Thanks for stopping by.

Picture Perfect Birthday

Yesterday I shared a fun card idea that featured both sides of a piece of designer series paper.  Well like I said I had made several different ones and today I’m sharing another one with you.  This one featured products from the Picture Perfect Birthday Suite.

picture-perfect-birthday

The Picture Perfect Party 6×6 Designer Series Paper is such a fun little stack of paper.  One side of each piece is a photo and the other side is a graphic pattern.  It was fun to use this card idea with these papers.  And with all the different designs there were lots of options for what could be on the front of your card.  I used candles for this one, but there are balloons, party hats, donuts, party blowers and more.

Here is a supply list and measurements:

  • Bermuda Bay card stock – 5-1/2″ x 5-3/4″, scored at 4-1/4″
  • Picture Perfect Party Designer Series Paper – 5-1/2″ x 3″
  • Whisper White card stock – 5-1/4″ x 4″ (for the inside)
  • Whisper White card stock – 1/2″ strip
  • 3/8″ Metallic-Edge Ribbon Silver
  • Classic Ink – Bermuda Bay, Lemon Lime Twist, Berry Burst, Peekaboo Peach
  • Tear & Tape
  • Tutti-frutti Adhesive-Backed Sequins

This time I have photos of the inside of the card too. When you open it you get to see the back of the paper so the inside is fun too!

I hope you like this fun idea as much as I do.  Thanks for stopping by today.

Celebrate You!

Have you seen all the fun items you can earn FREE during the Stampin’ Up! Sale-A-Bration promotion?  This annual promotion runs through the end of March.  With a $50 product order you can earn FREE products.  And this year they added a second tier level.  So with a $100 order you can get some special new items for FREE!  There are 2 level 2 choices – one is a beautiful stamp set and the other is a set of Thinlits.  Let me show those to you today.

celebrate-you-SAB-swap

The Celebrate You Thinlits Dies are one of your level 2 choices and I used the Celebrate on this card.  The Thinlits coordinate with the Amazing You stamp set – that’s where the word YOU comes from on this card.  But there is also a die in the set with the word YOU.  Plus a third die that says amazing.  I love the word dies – they make quick and easy cards.

I did use one more Sale-A-Bration choice on this card and that’s the Bubbles & Fizz Designer Series Paper.  But this card would be fun with any designer paper and color combination.

Watch this quick video showing the Amazing You stamp set and Celebrate You Thinlits.

I’ve been planning to blog all week and I just haven’t gotten to it.  My house is a total disaster.  We are doing renovations – a lot!  It’s a project that started a couple of months ago to replace our dining room table and our sofa.  It has grown to so much more and I’m so ready for it to be done.  Every room in my house has been impacted.  If there isn’t work going on in that room then the room is full of stuff from the other rooms.  My poor dogs are so confused.  And please don’t open any closets – they are filled right now.  I think this is why people move after a certain period of time – it’s too much trouble to do all this work and live in the house with your stuff.  We have lived in this house for 24 years now.  And we will stay here for a long time.

I hope you are having a great week.  I know around here the kids are happy – school holiday on Monday, and weather related school closures Wednesday – Friday.  Yes they had a 1 day school week.  The weather is making our renovation project stretch out – I had really hoped today they would be done and out of here.  But they will be back next week…….

The perfect birthday card

If you are like me the number on your birthday keeps getting higher!  The Number of Years stamp set and Large Numbers Framelits are perfect for making the “perfect” birthday card.  Because you can celebrate 29 again!  and again! and again!

29-again-card

For this card I also used the Embossing Paste to create the background.  But this time I created a mask using a die to cut through a Window Sheet.  The Window Box Thinlits has the die with the birthday candles.  I cut a piece of window sheet that would cover the front of the card.  Then ran the die through cutting multiple images of the candles over and over.

The paste was colored with the Lemon Lime Twist ink refill.  Then use the mask to apply the paste to the Pool Party layer.  While that dries, stamp and cut the 29.  The Lemon Lime Twist cotton ribbon is wrapped around the layer and tied with the Whisper White Baker’s Twine.  If you pull the ends between your finger nails you can give them a curl – it’s like curling ribbon that you use for wrapping presents!

Tangerine Tango, Pool Party and Lemon Lime Twist are a fun and bright combination!  I finished the card with some Tangerine Tango star Enamel Shapes.

Enjoy being 29 again! and again!  and again!
