Happy Birthday Deer

Hi!  How are you!  Hope your weekend is going well!  Today I have a card for you featuring the Nature’s Beauty Stamp Set.

Birthday, Masculine, Deer, Natures Beauty, Stampin' Up!, SU!, #Holiday2019

Did you know that for every set sold, Stampin’ Up! is donating $3 to Mental Illness organizations around the world?  Here in the US, the funds raised will support the National Association of Mental Illness (NAMI).    During the month of October, I was matching that amount and have decided to continue to match it through the end of the year.   So, if you purchase this set through my on-line store, $6 of your $21 purchase will be donated to NAMI!

Ok – on to the card.  I used Crumb Cake Cardstock for my base.  The trees from the set are stamped in Jet Black Stazon ink.  I used Crushed Curry, Pumpkin Pie, Cajun Craze and Old Olive inks to lightly sponge on color.

For the deer, I once again used Jet Black Stazon ink.  I then used Watercolor Pencils – Early Espresso and Cajun Craze along with a Blender Pen to color him.  A touch of Old Olive for the grass finished off the panel.

The Stitched Nested Label framelits were used to cut the deer and Early Espresso  mat behind it.

The card is finished by stamping the sentiment  from the Here’s A Card Stamp Set in Jet Black Stazon ink.

If you would like to help me reach my goal of raising $75 for NAMI by the end of December, simply click on this link to purchase the Nature’s Beauty stamp set.

Happy Birthday Remake

Hi!  Today I have an update to a pocket card I shared a while  back.  You can see that one here.

I love pocket cards – so had fun using new product to make this version:

Birthday, Daisy Lane, Pocket Card, Stampin' Up!, SU!, #2019AnnualCatalog

I was playing with the gorgeous Noble Peacock Designer Specialty Paper and Designer Peacock Foil Papers.  The daisy is stamped in Pretty Peacock ink and punched with Medium Daisy flower.  I also punched a daisy from the Pretty Peacock Foil sheet and from Whisper White cardstock and layered the three together for the flower.

The pocket is made from the Pretty Peacock Specialty Paper.  The base is Whisper White thick.  Besides the Happy Birthday that pulls out of the pocket, the card does open as well so you can write a full message.

I hope you enjoyed my updated version of this card!

Hi!  A few quick cards with the Broadway Bound Designer Series Paper for you today:

Birthday, Broadway Bound, Around the Corner, Stampin' Up!, SU!, #simplestamping

This is a very quick card and is for Stampin’ Up!’s #simplestamping featuring Birthday cards.  The Designer Series Paper is from the Broadway Bound Designer Series Pack and features gold foil elements on the sheets.  The stamp is from the set Around the Corner – for something a little different.

The Designer Series Paper measuring 4″ x 2 1/2″ is matted to a piece of Basic Black Cardstock measuring 4 1/8″ x 2 5/8″.

The base is our Thick Whisper White.

Here is another card using a different piece from the Broadway Bound pack:

So many different looks you can achieve with this pack of paper!  For this one, I went with the Lovely Lipstick ink for the sentiment which is from Perennial Birthday.   A few added pieces behind the sentiment to dress up the card using a Triple Banner Punch.

If you haven’t checked out the Broadway Bound suite, maybe this will give you inspiration to try it!

The One That Got Away?

Hi!  Today I am sharing the card I made during last week’s Facebook Live using the Best Catch bundle in the Occasions Catalog.

Fishing, Masculine, Best Catch, #2019Occasions, Stampin' Up!, SU!, Birthday

I am so happy with how the fish turned out.  I used an aqua painter and Old Olive and Crushed Curry ink to color the fish and then applied liquid glue using the Fine Tip Glue Pen to cover him. – here’s a better view:

Best Catch, Fishing, Masculine, #2019Occasions, Stampin' Up!, SU!

For the background on the card, I stamped the Crackle Paint Stamp set in Old Olive ink on Whisper White.  The cattails were die cut from the coordinating framelits from Old Olive Cardstock.  The Rectangle frame uses the new Stitched Rectangle Framelits in the Occasions Catalog as well.  I just layered two together and ran through the Big Shot once to make the frame.  Very easy and I love the stitching on it!  The sentiment is from the Piece Of Cake stamp set.

Here is the video – it is the second card:

What do you think?  Do you have fishermen on your friends and family list?  This would be a great bundle to use for birthday, Father’s Day or even Thank You!

I hope you enjoyed today’s project!

Animal Outing, Birthday, Sponging, Masking, Stampin' Up!, SU!The sunset is created by placing a template that had a circle die cut out of it over a Whisper White panel that measures 3 1/2 x 4 3/4″.   I sponged Pineapple Punch and Grapefruit Grove for my sun.

The sentiment stamps are from the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set and stamped in Momento Tuxedo Black ink on Old Olive card stock.  This is then punched using the Classic Label punch.
