Stampin’ Up Amazing Life for TGIF

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers.  Well, tomorrow’s the big day.  The new 2019 Occasions Catalog and Sale-A-Bration go live.  Does everyone have their wish lists ready?  Mine’s a mile long.

For today’s card I have a fun fold and I played along with the TGIF Challenge #192. Be sure to stop by TGIF to see all the beautiful projects made.  Here is their challenge.

Their challenge was to use Glossy Paper.  Here is what I came up with.  Take a look.

I started with 2 pieces of Glossy White cardstock and did the Shaving Cream Technique on them using Petal Pink, So Saffron and Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Ink Refills.  Once the paper was dry, I stamped the sentiment and the cake from Stampin’ Up Amazing Life stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on them and let the ink dry completely.  Once they were dry I adhered the panel with the sentiment onto the Petal Pink cardstock and the panel with the cake onto the Soft Sea Foam cardstock.

I adhered the So Saffron panel to the Soft Sea Foam panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I then adhered the Petal Pink cardstock to a So Saffron panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I wrapped a piece of Petal Pink Metallic Ribbon around the Soft Sea Foam side and tied a knot.  I secured the knot with a Glue Dot.  I added some Share What You Love Artisan Pearls and Clear Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the Glossy White artwork panels.

On the inside on a Whisper White panel I stamped the Happy Birthday from the Amazing Life stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the center.  I stamped the scroll from the same stamp set above the sentiment in Soft Sea Foam Ink.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Petal Pink using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the birthday cake image from Amazing Life stamp set on the front of the envelope.  I stamped the envelope flap with the Marble background stamp in Petal Pink Ink.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try.  All the card cuts and folds are listed below for you.  Happy Stamping.
