Stampin’ Up Amazing Life Birthday Card

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends.  How is your week going?  Hope you’re having a good one.

For today’s card I used the Stampin’ Up Amazing Life Stamp Set.  This is another card we made at my workshop.  I had different levels of stampers and everyone did an amazing job making it.  Take a look.

I started with a Pacific Point card front and ran it through my Big Shot using the Tufted Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  I adhered a strip of Garden Impressions 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper down the center of the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the large sentiment from the Amazing Life stamp set in Pacific Point Ink.  I colored the image in using my Mango Melody Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I then took my Melon Mambo Stampin’ Write Marker and edged the  artwork.  I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added a Melon Mambo Glitter Enamel Dot to the artwork.  I adhered the card front to a So Saffron card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the inside I stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment from the Amazing Life stamp set in Pacific Point Ink on a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the scroll from the same stamp set above the sentiment in Mango Melody Ink, stamping off once.  I stamped just the top of the same scroll in the corners in Mango Melody Ink.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the So Saffron card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card off I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the scroll from the Amazing Life stamp set in Mango Melody Ink on the envelope front.  I adhered a piece of Garden Impressions 6 X 6 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.

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.

Stampin’ Up Amazing Life Sneak Peak

Good Wednesday morning everyone.  Hope your having a wonderful week so far.

I’ve got another sneak peak for you from the upcoming 2019 Occasions Catalog.  I used the Stampin’ Up Amazing Life stamp set and the  new Gingham Gala 6X6 Designer Series Paper which will be available January 3, 2019.  Take a look.

I started with a Whisper White panel and stamped the cake from Amazing Life stamp set in Highland Heather Ink on the bottom.  I stamped the sentiment from the same set in Gorgeous Grape Ink in the center of the panel.  I colored the word cake in using my Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Write Marker and I colored the candle flame in using my Pineapple Punch Stampin’ Write Marker.  I then stamped the border and dots from the same stamp set in Granny Apple Green Ink on the Whisper White panel.

I adhered the Whisper White panel to a piece of Highland Heather Gingham Gala 6X6 Designer Series Paper using Snail.  This new paper is so pretty.  There is large Gingham on one side and small Gingham on the other in 5 different colors.  This was a must have when I saw it.

I adhered the artwork to a Gorgeous Grape mat using Snail and then adhered it to a Highland Heather card base, using Multipurpose Liquid Glue, which I had stamped with the flower image from the Amazing Life stamp set in Highland Heather Ink.

On the inside I stamped the cake image from Amazing Life stamp set in Highland Heather Ink, stamping off once, in the center of a Whisper White Panel.  I stamped the Happy Birthday in Gorgeous Grape Ink over the middle of the cake.  I stamped one of the scrolls from the same stamp set in Granny Apple Green toward the top of the panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the Highland Heather card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the cake image from the Amazing Life stamp set in Highland Heather Ink on the bottom left front of the envelope.  I adhered a piece of Gingham Gala 6X6 DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card. This is just one of the wonderful new sets that will be available January 3, 2019.
