Birthday Bonanza Fun Fold

Hi!  Today I have a fun fold card using the Bonanza Buddies Bundle.

Birthday, Fun Fold, Technique, Bonanza Buddies, Stampin' Up!, SU!, #2020Occasions

This card will fold flat and pop-out when taken out of the envelop.  Such a fun card and pretty easy to do as well.

The animals were colored as follows:

  • Toucan – Jet Black StaZon – colored with Cajun Craze, Pumpkin Pie and Crushed Curry markers.
  • Koala – Smoky Slate and Jet Black StaZon
  • Lion – Crushed Curry and Terracotta Tile
  • Balloon – Poppy Parade

The banner and strip across the front are from the coordinating Birthday Bonanza Designer Series Paper pack.

Here is the template for the base of the card:

Positively Birthday

Hi!  Back today with another card featuring the Positive Thoughts stamp set and coordinating Nature’s Thoughts dies.

Birthday, Positive Thoughts, Stampin' Up!, SU!, #2020Occasions

As you can see, I kept the same color palette used in Monday’s card.

Texture was added through the use of the Subtle Embossing Folder on the Very Vanilla mat and Sripty 3D Embossing Folder on the Soft Suede Frame as well as the Pool Party Stitched Circle.  The sentiment and feather are stamped in Soft Suede.

I love the Vellum layer added behind the main elements.  It adds to the softness of the card.

If I’ve convinced you you need the Positive Thoughts stamp set and dies, I’d love if you’d head over to my On-line store to purchase them.

Welcome to the Jungle

Hi!  Today I have 2 cards to share with you featuring the Bonanza Buddies Suite in the Occasions Catalog.

Birthday, Bonanza Buddies, Stampin' Up!, SU!, #2020Occasions        Birthday, Bonanza Buddies, Stampin' Up!, SU!, #2020Occasions

Aren’t they adorable?  I am sharing both cards together because the backgrounds were created from one piece of cardstock!  Pretty cool, right?

I took a piece of Garden Green cardstock, embossed it with the Layering Leaves TIEF and then die cut the center to create a frame for one card and a background for the second.  I thought this was a great way to make two cards at the same time.

The coordinating Bonanza Buddies Dies were used to die cut the Toucan, Koala, hat, and balloon.  The colors are Terracotta Tile, Crushed Curry and Garden Green.   For the Koala, I also used the Subtle Embossing folder to emboss the Terracotta Tile cardstock strip.

Here is the video showing the making of both cards:

A Little Watercoloring

Hi!  Today I have a card featuring the Varied Vases stamp set.  I had some Watercolor Paper sitting out and decided to play with the Pigment Sprinkles – these are similar to the Brushos we used to carry but are now in Stampin’ Up! Colors!

Watercoloring, Varied Vases, Stampin' Up!, SU!, Birthday, Pigment Sprinkles, #2019AnnualCatalog

To achieve the look of the varied colors, I used the Daffodil Delight and Melon Mambo sprinkles then spritzed with water. Once the paper dried, I die cut it with various dies and punches for my branches.

The card also features the Tin Tile Embossing Folder, retired Calypso Coral Ombre ribbon and the Varied Vases Stamp Set.

My color palette is Gray Granite, Calypso Coral and Whisper White.  This is a fun technique – if you like to play with the sprinkles.  No two pieces of Watercolor Paper turn out the same even when using the same colors of Pigment Sprinkles.

I hope you’ll give it a try!

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!

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 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!

Floral Romance

Hi! Today I have a card I shared this past week on my Tuesday with Teresa Facebook Live!  I had seen this fold on a card by Rose Maroney Ward and absolutely LOVED it!

Birthday, Floral Romance, 2019Occasions, Stampin' Up!, SU!

So pretty! The Designer Series Paper is from the Floral Romance pack in the Occasions Catalog.  The die cuts and sentiment are from the Well Said Bundle also found in the Occasions Catalog.  The purchase of this bundle automatically qualifies you for a FREE Sale-A-Bration product through March 31, 2019.

I used the awesome Adhesive Sheets – why did I not discover these sooner? – on the back of the die cuts to make it easy to attach to my card.

Here is a PDF with the measurements:  Floral Romance Flap Card

Here is the video for the card:

I have a few more versions of this flap fold which I’ll share soon.
