Stampin’ Up! Turtle Friends Birthday

Good Tuesday morning my stamping friends. Happy February!!! Yesterday my daughter started back in person collage. She was really looking forward to it since she hated remote learning. The downside is that I have to have her at the train station to catch the 6:30am train. I’m up at that time, but I don’t like to be out in the winter at that time. Once she got to the campus, she had a 30-minute walk to her building and it was only 10 degrees out, brrr.

I have a cute little card for you today using items from the 2021 -2022 Annual Catalog. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Turtle Friends Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the Tidings of Christmas 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper for my card today.

My colors are from As You See It Challenge #267.

I started by adhering a panel of Tidings of Christmas DSP to a Crumb Cake card base.

I cut a panel of Basic White cardstock using my Stitched Rectangle Dies. I stamped the sentiment from the Turtle Friends stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink down the one side of the panel using my Stamparatus. I adhered the Basic White panel to the card front.

I cut a panel of Crumb Cake cardstock using the Ornate Layers Dies and embossed the panel using my Stripes and Splatters 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered the panel to the left of the sentiment panel. On a small panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the larger outline turtle image from the Turtle Friends stamp set in Evening Evergreen Ink. I stamped the shell image from the Turtle Friends stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink stamping off once. I stamped the sentiment from the Turtle Friends stamp set on the shell in Evening Evergreen Ink. I colored the turtle using my Soft Succulent Stampin’ Blends Markers. I stamped the hat from the Turtle Friends stamp set on the turtle in Calypso Coral Ink and colored it using my Calypso Coral Stampin’ Blends Markers. I stamped the bird image from the Turtle Friends stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink on top of the turtle. I stamped the bow tie image from the Turtle Friends stamp set in Calypso Coral Ink, fussy cut it using my Paper Snips and adhered it to the turtle using a Stampin’ Dimensional. I cut the image out using my Hippo & Friends Dies and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Bragworthy Cling Stamp Set in Evening Evergreen Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the 2 small outline turtle images from the Turtle Friends stamp set in Evening Evergreen Ink on the bottom of the panel. I stamped the grass and shell images from the Turtle Friends stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink. I colored the turtles in using my Soft Succulent Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to an Evening Evergreen mat and then to the inside of the Crumb Cake card base.

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the large and small turtle outline images from the Turtle Friends stamp set in Evening Evergreen Ink. I stamped the grass and large & small shell images from the Turtle Friends stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink. I colored the turtles in using my Soft Succulent Stampin’ Blends Markers. I stamped the bird image from the Turtle Friends stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink. I adhered a panel of Tidings of Christmas DSP to the envelope flap.

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

  2. Lovely work, Karen! It’s nice to see that Christmas paper doing a great non-Christmas job. I like the added texture on the Crumb Cake vertical and the repeated Happy Birthday on the stitched white panel is a great idea. Thanks for joining us at As You See It Challenge.
