You’ve Got This – Fortieth Birthday and Stampin’ Blends

The time has come to start creating birthday cards that will be in abundance soon, as my High School friends/classmates (and myself) close in on the age of 40!  My cousin and one of my closest friends turned 40 years old yesterday! Her husband threw her a surprise birthday party this past Saturday, which we were more than happy to attend.  It was a successful surprise and I was able to catch up with family I hadn’t seen in awhile.

I needed to make a card, but I didn’t want to do the traditional 40th Birthday in black.  I wanted to have black incorporated into the card, so I found the perfect piece of paper from the Merry Little Christmas Designer Series Paper Pack.  I decided to mute it by placing a piece of Vellum over the top of it but letting it peak out the edges.  I also decided to soften it by using Crumb Cake as the Card Base and accent piece.

The flower from the You’ve Got This Stamp Set was also stamped on Crumb Cake using the Tuxedo Black Momento Ink and then colored with the Fabulous New Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Markers. I highly recommend using Crumb Cake with the Stampin’ Blends. It softens the colors and blends so very nicely. I used Light and Dark Old Olive, Light and Dark Cherry Cobbler, Dark Daffodil Delight and Light Pumpkin Pie.  After coloring, I snipped the edges with my Paper Snips.

The Stitched Square was quickly cropped with the Big Shot and die from the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies, one of my very favorite in my collection :).  After cropping it out, I then added Cherry Cobbler Ink using the Color Smooching Technique.  I adhered it to the Vellum with Stampin’ Dimensionals, over the top of the Linen Thread I had wrapped around the layers adhered to the Card Base.

After adhering the You’ve Got This Flower to the Crumb Cake Square (also with Stampin’ Dimensionals) I stamped the Happy Birthday, from the Milestone Moments Stamp Set, with Basic Black Archival Ink.  I then stamped the Fortieth in Versamark on Basic Black Cardstock and Heat Embossed with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder.  I trimmed it down and flagged the ends with the Banner Triple Punch.

I added a few Black Rhinestone Jewels, my favorite accessory, to the card to finish it off.

Best Bird Watercolor Birthday Card, Stampin' Hoot! Stesha Bloodhart, #stampinup #birthday

I too needed to choose a past creation of my own to CASE (Copy and Selectively Edit) so I went with the card I made previously using the Best Birds Photopolymer Stamp Set and Coordinating Birds & Blooms Thinlits Dies. I changed up the colors I used on the birds and flowers and added a few more elements.  It is a bit busier than my rather simplistic card above, but I still LOVE the results.

Best Birds Photopolymer Stamp Set and Coordinating Birds & Blooms Thinlits Dies by Stampin' Up! Find Details at Stampin' Hoot! Stesha Bloodhart #watercolor #stampinup #bestbirds #papercrafts #cardmaking #birthdaycard

Details:

  • The card base is Whisper White 12 x 12 Cardstock cut in half at 6 in and scored / folded at 6 in to create a square card.
  • I reinforced the inside of the card by adhering two pieces of Whisper White Thick Cardstock cut to 5.5 in square to both sides.
  • The top layer is Shimmery White Cardstock cut to 5.5 in x 5.5 in.  I applied Soft Sky Classic Ink as a background by tapping the Ink Pad to a piece of Window Sheet. I then sprayed the window sheet with water from a Stampin’ Spritzer. Touch the Window Sheet to the Shimmery White Cardstock randomly until you have coverage in the areas you want to add color.  Let dry, repeat if necessary!
  • Wrap Linen Thread several times around the Shimmery White Cardstock and tie with a bow prior to adhering to the card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • All Images and Sentiments are from the Best Birds Photopolymer Stamp Set and are stamped in Basic Black Archival Ink on Shimmery White Cardstock. All images were colored with an Aqua Painter and the following Classic Inks
    • Birds: Early Espresso and Soft Sky
    • Branch: Early Espresso and Pear Pizzazz
    • Flowers and Flower Buds: Berry Burst, Early Espresso and Pear Pizzazz
  • The sentiments were fussy cut with a Paper Snips and adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals
  • All images were cropped with the Big Shot, Magnetic Platform and Coordinating Dies from the Birds & Blooms Thinlits Dies Set. They were also adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

This Little Piggy Has a Birthday Party Card

This past weekend I was able to spend three full days making cards and scrapbook pages.  My son, Parker, is my little crafting buddy. During our nightly call at bedtime, he always asked me what I created that day…then he requested that I create a card with the piggies. I knew it would be the first thing that he asked to look at when they picked me up on Sunday, so I went to work on his request.

I use Pinterest a lot for inspiration. (You can follow my board by clicking here).  Although I don’t often CASE a card, I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to CASE this one created by the talented Juana Create!  (CASE = COPY AND SHARE w/EVERYONE, COPY AND SELECTIVELY EDIT, COPY AND SHARE EVERYTHING…you get the point).  There isn’t a lot to the card, just stamping, coloring and cutting!

A Bright Wishes Birthday Card for CAS(E) this Sketch #234

CAS(E) this Sketch! CTS #234 #cts234 Case This Sketch Challenge

Today’s card features the all new Bright Wishes Stamp Set from the 2017-2018 Annual Stampin’ Up! Catalog.  I jumped on over to the CAS(E) this Sketch Challenge Blog to see what the current challenge was to try and gain some layout inspiration….it was exactly what I needed to start my creation.

I have been wanting to use the Bright Wishes set so I could watercolor that beautiful wishing well!  I love the greenery and flowers framing the well and couldn’t wait to get my Aqua Painter inked up and get started.  When I saw this sketch, I interpreted the circle as a setting sun.  So I decided to create the card with the sun setting behind the wishing well…I really like how this card turned out.  The sun is subtle but creates a WOW factor.  Crushed Curry + Shimmery White Cardstock = Perfect Setting Sun!

  • Top Layer: Shimmery White Cardstock cut to 5.25 in x 5.25 in and adhered to 2nd Layer with Fast Fuse Adhesive.
  • Watercolor Background: Created with Acetate, Crushed Curry and Old Olive Classic Ink, Stampin’ Spritzer

  • Wishing Well: From the Bright Wishes Stamp Set. Stamped in Basic Black Archival Ink on Shimmery White Cardstock.  Colored with an Aqua Painter and the following Classic Inks: Soft Suede (my favorite for wood tones), Lemon-Lime Twist and Old Olive (my favorite for greenery), Berry Burst (my favorite for flowers) and Crushed Curry (my favorite for a setting sun).  I fussy cut the image out with my trusty Paper Snips.
  • Sentiments: Stamped in Basic Black Archival Ink.  Happy Birthday is from the Birthday Banners Stamp Set and May All Your Wishes Come True is from the Bright Wishes Stamp Set.  The flagged end for the Happy Birthday sentiment was created with the Banner Triple Punch.
  • Ribbon:  Old Olive 1/8″ Sheer Ribbon; Dainty, Lightweight and Elegant!

Butterfly Basics Birthday for CAS(E) This Sketch #231

Butterfly Basics Stamp Set by Stampin' Up! for CAS(E) this Sketch Challenge #231 created by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot!

Butterfly Basics Birthday for CAS(E) This Sketch #231

CAS(E) this Sketch Challenge #231

I found another challenge that inspired me, so I created this beautiful birthday card with the Butterfly Basics Stamp Set that I have had for some time and never inked up..So it finally got it chance and I have to say, I am in love with it!  So many wonderful elements, images and AMAZING mixed fonts used for the sentiments. And I gotta say, it worked well for the challenge over at CAS(E) this sketch!

The color combination that I went with was from the Regals family. Crushed Curry, Always Artichoke and Cajun Craze are the focal point of the card.  I think the colors are a Hoot-a-Riffic combination so I went ahead and made another Pin worthy image for you!  Make sure to follow me on Pinterest!  You can see all my boards here:  Stampin’ Hoot on Pinterest  Note: If you are viewing this blog post by e-Mail, please click to view on my blog so that you can Pin Away!

Hoot-A-Riffic Color Combination Crushed Curry, Always Artichoke, Cajun Craze Classic Inks by Stampin' Up! #hootariffic #stampinhoot #colorcombinations #stampinup #crushedcurry #alwaysartichoke #cajuncraze

I just LOVE the flowers from this set, they are stunning.  I hadn’t used Cajun Craze in awhile and that happens to be my favorite flower color, mixed with yellow tones so Crushed Curry was a good color to pair with it.

Card Details:

  • Card Base: Whisper White Thick Cardstock cut to 4.25 in x 11 in and scored / folded at 5.5 in.
  • 2nd Layer:  Whisper White Cardstock cut to 4.x 5.25 in.  Adhered to base with Stampin’ Dimensionals
  • I cut a piece of the Wood Texture DSP to .75 in x 5 in.  I stamped the the diagonal stripes stamp in Cajun Craze on Whisper White, cut it to size and glued it to the Wood Texture DSP.  Then I flagged the ends using the Banner Triple Punch.  I adhered it to the card with Fast Fuse Adhesive.
  • I took the Honeycomb stamp, inked it up with Early Espresso ink and stamped it several times onto the Wood Texture DSP.  Then I zipped it through the Big Shot with the largest straight edge Square in the Layering Squares Framelits Dies.
  • I took the Square Framelit that was two sizes smaller than the previous one and cropped out a piece of Shimmery White Cardstock.  Then added a bit of Crushed Curry color with an Aqua Painter.
  • The Butterflies, Flower and Fern were all stamped on Shimmery White Cardstock.  The Flower was stamped with Basic Black Archival Ink and colored with an Aqua Painter.  The stems and leaves are Always Artichoke and the petals are Cajun Craze. The Fern was stamped in Always Artichoke.  Both images were snipped with a Paper Snips. The Butterflies were stamped in Crushed Curry. The smaller one was snipped out with a Paper Snips and the Larger one was cropped with the coordinating Thinlit and the Big Shot. All Images were adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • The Happy Birthday was stamped directly onto the Whisper White Layer with Early Espresso Ink.

If you want to add the Butterfly Basics Stamp Set to your collection, I recommend pairing it with the coordinating Butterfly Thinlits Dies!  It easily crops out the floral butterfly, but it also adds some amazing detailed butterfly dies to the mix!  A Must Have!

The reason I love to fussy cut most images (if there is not a coordinating framelit available) is because it allows me to give my card all kinds of dimension.  I LOVE DIMENSION!  Although a flat card can be gorgeous as well, I love the texture and feel of the dimension I can give to a card but snipping out the images.

Birthday Blooms Card for Global Design Project 097

Birthday Blooms Card for Global Design Project

Global Design Project Color Challenge 097 Crumb Cake, Berry Burst, Wild Wasabi by Stampin' Up! #GDP097

Global Design Project Color Challenge is front and center on my blog today! #GDP097.  I had just created a card with a very similar color combination of Crumb Cake, Melon Mambo and Garden Green, but used the You’ve Got This Stamp Set (it will be featured on my blog in the days to come).  So, I decided to use a similar layout, the new color combination of Crumb Cake, Berry Burst and Wild Wasabi but changed the stamp set to Birthday Blooms.

The Birthday Blooms Card uses another stamp set that I had on my list of sets that I needed to show some love.  I think Birthday Blooms works perfectly for this color combination and the use of White Embossing Powder for the line detail.  It works well against the Crumb Cake Cardstock background!

Card Details:

  • Card Base Crumb Cake Cardstock cut to 4.25 in x 11 in and scored/folded at 5.5 in.
  • Berry Burst Cardstock is cut to 4 1/16 in x 5 3/16 in and adhered to the card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • Crumb Cake was used again and cut to 4 in x 5.25 in.  I added Berry Burst Classic Ink to an Aqua Painter, squeezed it and then shook it over the top of the card to get the ink splatter effect.
  • I stamped the Floral Images from the Birthday Blooms stamp set on Crumb Cake Cardstock in Versamark Ink. I then added White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heated with the Heat Tool. After cooling, I fussy cut each image with my trusty Paper Snips!  Did you know you can get a set of Paper Snips free during the Month of July? Click here for details.(Christmas in July)
  • I added color to the flowers using Blender Pens.  Blender Pens are great to obtain a watercolor look on paper that is not so watercolor friendly, such as Crumb Cake. The Rose Petals are colored with Berry Burst and the leaves are colored with Wild Wasabi.  Tip:  The Crumb Cake Cardstock grabs the color quickly and hangs on tight to it.  So, you want to add the color first to the areas that you would like darker, then work your way out.  (I always started on the tips of the leaves first). You do not want to stay in one area for too long, otherwise the cardstock starts to pill (if you look closely you can see it a bit on the large rose).
  • I stamped the sentiments in Versamark on Basic Black Cardstock and added the White Stampin’ Emboss Powder to make them pop.  I fussy cut with the flow of the sentiments, I think they look lovely this way!
  • The Dear Friend sentiment was adhered with Fast Fuse Adhesive, the flowers and other sentiment were adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • The final touch was added by strategically gluing (with a fine-tip glue pen) various sizes of Metallic Sequins to the card front and adding a few flowers to coordinate the envelope.  Although Crumb Cake Envelopes are no longer available, you can easily create one with Crumb Cake Cardstock and the Envelope Punch Board.
