Stampin’ Up Life Is Grand Quick and Easy Card

Good Thursday morning my fellow stampers.  Only one more day till the weekend.  Is anyone making any plans?

For today’s card I have a very quick and easy card for you.  I let the Designer Series Paper do most of the work for me.  Take a look.

I started with a Pineapple Punch card front and adhered a piece of How Sweet It Is Designer Series Paper to it using Snail.  I wrapped a piece of Coastal Cabana/Granny Apple Green 3/8″ Reversible Ribbon around the card front and tied a knot on the side.  I adhered the card front to a Thick Whisper White card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
On a piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from Stampin’ Up Life Is Grand Cling Stamp Set in Granny Apple Green Ink.  Using my Big Shot I cut the sentiment out with the largest oval from the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies.  I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I added a couple Granny Apple Green Glitter Enamel Dots to the stitched oval.

On the inside on a Whisper White cardstock panel I stamped the birthday sentiment from the Life Is Grand stamp set in Granny Apple Green Ink in the center.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Thick Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  To decorate the inside a little I added a panel of How Sweet It Is DSP.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the lollipops from the Stampin’ Up Sweetest Thing Stamp Set in Granny Apple Green ink on the envelope front.  I colored them in using my Coastal Cabana, Gorgeous Grape, Granny Apple Green, Melon Mambo and Pineapple Punch Stampin’ Write Markers.  I adhered a piece of How Sweet It Is DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for visiting my blog today.  I hope you liked my quick and easy card and will give it a try.  Happy Stamping!!

Paper Pumpkin is turning six and we want to celebrate with you! After all, we could not have shared all these years of creativity if it weren’t for our subscribers.
To celebrate this fun occasion and to thank everyone who supports Paper Pumpkin month after month, we’re offering a specially-designed March kit and a FREE STAMP SET. Oh, yes. You read that right. In March, you will receive TWO stamp sets with your Paper Pumpkin kit.

There has never been a better time to give Paper Pumpkin a try. And because it’s our sixth birthday celebration, we’ll be pulling out all the stops. You’ll get an adorable kit, a special box, and most importantly, you’ll get TWO stamp sets instead of one.
$20 for a Paper Pumpkin kit is always a steal, but in March the deal is even better! There has never been a better time for you to join Paper Pumpkin.

Because it’s our birthday, we decided to create a kit that is perfect for making birthday cards!
The March kit features eight full-sized, mailable cards
Coordinating colors are Basic Black, Bermuda Bay, Daffodil Delight, Flirty Flamingo, and Poppy Parade
This kit has an element that is sure to “pop”!
The FREE stamp set is even bigger and better than your typical Paper Pumpkin stamp set and can be used on a variety of crafting projects.

A subscriber must have an active subscription by March 10, 2019 in order to receive the March kit.
The FREE stamp set coordinates with the March kit but it is not needed to complete the projects.
Supplies may be limited toward the end of the subscription period, so DON’T WAIT.
