Stampin’ Up! Birds and Branches Hello Baby

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers.  How has everyone’s week started off?  Can you believe June is over already and we have a holiday weekend coming up soon.  These months are a blur to me this year.

I have another baby card for you today using the Birds & Branches Bundle.  This one is for my aunt and uncle for their new Great Grandson.  I made a male and female bird for today’s card.  Did you ever wonder why the male bird is so much more vibrant than the female.  Something is definitely wrong with that.   Here’s my card for today.

Today’s card played along with Fusion Challenge – Relaxed Living.  Here is their inspiration and sketch.

I started by stamping a Balmy Blue card front using the Stampin’ Up! Buffalo Check Cling Stamp in Pacific Point Ink.  I adhered the card front to a Balmy Blue mat using Stampin’ Seal.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the nest image from the Stampin’ Up! Birds & Branches Photopolymer Stamp Set in Crumb Cake Ink.  I stamped the birds eggs image from the Birds & Branches stamp set in Balmy Blue Ink.  I stamped step 1 of one of the bird images from the Birds & Branches stamp set in Daffodil Delight Ink and step 2 of the bird image in Gray Granite Ink.  I cut all the images out using my Birds & More Dies.  On a small panel of Daffodil Delight cardstock I stamped the step 2 image of the bird facing the opposite way in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and cut the image out using my Birds & More Dies.  On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the large and small branch images from the Birds & Branches stamp set in Soft Suede Ink.  I stamped the leaf image from the Birds & Branches stamp set in Granny Apple Green Ink.

I cut the Whisper White panel into a banner using my Banner Triple Punch.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! So Sentimental Cling Stamp Set in Balmy Blue Ink on the end of the banner.  I adhered the birds nest to the banner using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the eggs inside the nest using Glue Dots.  I adhered the birds on the nest using Glue Dots.  I adhered the banner to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the card front to a Whisper White card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Moments Cling Stamp Set in Balmy Blue Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the 2 branch images from the Birds & Branches stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on the side of the panel.  I stamped the leaf image from the Birds & Branches stamp set in Granny Apple Green Ink on the branches.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Balmy Blue mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the 2 branch images from the Birds & Branches stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on the envelope front.  I stamped the leaf image from the Birds & Branches stamp set in Granny Apple Green Ink on the branches.  I stamped the envelope flap using the Buffalo Check stamp in Balmy Blue Ink.

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

Stampin’ Up! Birds and Branches Congratulations

Good Monday morning my stamping friends.  How was everyone’s weekend?  Did anyone do anything fun?  I worked on Saturday and yesterday I worked around the house.  I thought about going for a nice long walk, but when I walked outside and couldn’t breath, I changed my mind.

For today I played along with another new bundle from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog.  I just got the Birds & Branches Bundle last week and couldn’t wait to play with it.  My cousin’s son just had a baby boy so I thought I’d send her a congrats on being a  grandma card. Here’s my card for today.

My colors were inspired by the Color Throwdown Challenge #599.  Here are their colors.

My design is from Try Stamping On Tuesday Challenge #463.  Here is their sketch.

I also played along with Watercooler Wednesday Challenge #277.  Here is their theme.

I started by stamping the bird nest image from the Stampin’ Up! Birds & Branches Photopolymer Stamp Set in Crumb Cake Ink on a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I stamped the 1st step of the bird image from the Birds & Branches stamp set in Daffodil Delight Ink on the Whisper White panel.  I stamped the 2nd step of the bird image from the Birds & Branches stamp set in Gray Granite Ink on top of the first image.  I stamped the birds eggs image from the Birds & Branches stamp set in Balmy Blue on the Whisper White panel.  I cut the images out using the Birds & More Dies.  I cut a panel of Soft Sea Foam cardstock using the circular die from the Birds & More Dies.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the branch image from the Birds & Branches stamp set in Soft Suede Ink.  I stamped the leaf image from the Birds & Branches stamp set in Just Jade Ink, stamping off once, on the branches.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the back of the die cut Soft Sea Foam panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the Soft Sea Foam panel to a panel of In Good Taste Designer Series Paper using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the birds nest to the die cut panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals.   I adhered the bird to the nest using a Glue Dot and Stampin’ Dimensional.  I adhered the birds eggs inside the nest using Glue Dots.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Moments Cling Stamp Set in Balmy Blue Ink on a strip of Whisper White cardstock and fussy cut it using my Paper Snips.  I adhered the sentiment to a strip of Soft Sea Foam cardstock using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I wrapped a piece of Linen Thread around the top of the panel and tied a small bow.  I adhered the card front to a Thick Whisper White card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Pearl Basic Jewels that I colored using my Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Blends Markers.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Peaceful Moments stamp set in Balmy Blue Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped step 1 of the bird image from the Birds & Branches stamp set in Daffodil Delight Ink on the bottom of the panel.  I stamped step 2 of the bird image from the Birds & Branches stamp set in Gray Granite Ink on top of the 1st.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Soft Sea Foam mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Thick Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the branch image from the Birds & Branches stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on the envelope front.  I stamped the leaf image from the Birds & Branches stamp set in Just Jade Ink, stamping off once, on the branch.  I stamped step 1 of the bird image from the Birds & Branches stamp set in Daffodil Delight Ink above the branch.  I stamped step 2 of the bird image from the Birds & Branches stamp set in Gray Granite Ink on top of the 1st image.  I stamped the birds legs in Gray Granite Ink.  I adhered a panel of In Good Taste 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! Animal Outings Under My Umbrella Baby Shower for Fun Fold Friday

Happy Valentine’s Day my stamping friends and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday.  How was everyone’s week? Is anyone doing anything special today or tonight?

A co-worker of mine asked me to make her a baby shower card for her daughter who is having her first baby.  The only thing she told me was to make it blue since they are having a boy.  So I pulled out something old and something new.  I used some of the new Designer Series Paper from the Coordination products.  Here’s what I came up with.

I joined in with Inspire. Create Challenge #062.  Here is their challenge for the week.

I started by adhering a panel of the Coordination Pleased As Punch Designer Series Paper to a Soft Seafoam mat using Snail.  I adhered the matted panel to a Whisper White mat using Snail and then to a Balmy Blue card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the Kangaroo image from the Stampin’ Up! Animal Outings Cling Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink.  I colored the image in using my Crumb Cake, Ivory and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the image out using the Animal Friends Dies.  I stamped the umbrella image on a panel of Subtle 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper in Soft Suede Ink.  I stamped the umbrella handle on a scrap of Soft Seafoam cardstock in Soft Suede Ink.  I punched the umbrella and the handle out using the Umbrella Builder Punch.

I used the 2nd largest circle from the Stitched Shapes Dies to cut a circle from Whisper White cardstock.  I adhered the stitched circle to a scallop circle which I cut using the Layering Circle Dies in Soft Seafoam cardstock using Snail.  I adhered the kangaroo to the circle using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the umbrella handle to the umbrella using a Glue Dot and adhered it to the kangaroos hand using a Glue Dot.  I adhered the artwork to the center of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and added a few Basic Adhesive-Backed Sequins.  On a thin strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Under My Umbrella Photopolymer Stamp Set in Balmy Blue Ink and made it into a banner.  I adhered it to a Soft Seafoam banner mat using Snail and then to the left side of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a Heart Epoxy Droplet which I colored using my Dark Balmy Blue Stampin’ Blends Marker.

Next I made the card base.  I scored a 4 1/4″ X 11″ panel of Balmy Blue cardstock at 1 3/8″, 2 3/4″, 8 1/4″ and 9 5/8″.  I folded the sides in and then back so that it would look like this:

It’s kind of like a Z-Fold on both sides.

On the inside I stamped the sentiments from the Animal Outings stamp set in Balmy Blue Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the kangaroo image from the Animal Outings stamp set over the sentiment in Crumb Cake Ink stamping off once.  I stamped the umbrella and handle images from the Under My Umbrella stamp set in Soft Seafoam Ink in the kangaroos hand.  I colored the umbrella in using my Soft Seafoam Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Soft Seafoam mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Balmy Blue card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  On the right side panel of the card base, I adhered a panel of Coordination Pleased As Punch DSP which I matted on a Soft Seafoam panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the card front to the left side of the card base using Tear & Tape Adhesive.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the kangaroo image from the Animal Outings stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on the envelope front.  I stamped the umbrella image from the Under My Umbrella stamp set in Soft Seafoam Ink attached to the kangaroo.  I colored the images in using my Crumb Cake, Ivory, Smoky Slate and Soft Seafoam Stampin’ Blends Makers.  I adhered a panel of the Pleased As Punch 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 Animal Outings for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday.  The weekend is here already, has anyone had a chance to make plans?  I feel like the weekend snuck up very quickly.  Gotta love these 4 day weeks.

For today’s card I was asked to make a baby shower card for a friend.  I had to put my thinking cap on for a bit to come up with an idea.  I don’t really have any ‘baby’ stamp sets, but then I remembered the one set that I have that would be perfect.  I made a ‘Z-Fold’ card for you, but my measurements are a little different than normal.  Here’s my card.

My card was able to join in with a few challenges today.  First off I played along with Global Design Project Color Challenge #205.  I thought these colors were perfect for a baby shower card (mom to be knows it’s a girl).  Here are their colors.

Next I played along with Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #332.  With a little work I made this work as a fun fold.  Here is their sketch.

I also joined in with Watercooler Wednesday Challenge #237.  They have a theme challenge and I thought how much more feminine could a baby shower card be.  Here is their challenge.

I started by stamping the momma kangaroo image from the Stampin’ Up Animal Outing Cling Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink on a small panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I colored the image in using my Rococo Rose and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the image out using my Animal Friends Dies.  I cut out a stitched square from Rococo Rose cardstock using the Stitched Shapes Dies.  I cut out a scalloped square from So Saffron cardstock using my Layering Squares Dies.  I adhered the stitched square to the scalloped square using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the kangaroo to the square using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I adhered a strip of Rococo Rose card stock to the folded edge using Snail.  I adhered the artwork to the folded edge using Stampin’ Dimensionals only on one half.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Itty Bitty Greetings Cling Stamp Set in Rococo Rose Ink on a thin strip of Whisper White cardstock.  I punched the sentiment out using the Classic Label Punch and I cut the one edge straight using my Paper Snips.  I adhered the sentiment to the card front using a Glue Dot and Mini Stampin’ Dimensional.  I attached a small bow made from Whisper White Solid Bakers Twine with a Glue Dot.

I wrapped a piece of the Rococo Rose 1/2″ Scalloped Linen Ribbon around the left side of the card.

On the inside I adhered a panel of the Mint Macaron Gingham from the Subtle 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper using Snail.  I adhered a Whisper White panel to a Rococo Rose mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Mint Macaron card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I did not stamp a sentiment on the inside because my friend wants to write something herself.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the kangaroo image from the Animal Outing stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on the envelope front.  I colored the image in using my Rococo Rose and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a panel of So Saffron Gingham from the Subtle 6 X 6 DSP on 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 Animal Outings Baby Card

Good Monday morning everyone and Happy Columbus Day.  Hope you all had a wonderful weekend and are ready for another great week.  If you have off today, hope you have some fun plans and enjoy your day.

A friend asked me to make her a Baby Shower card, so I took a break from my holiday cards to make her one.  I used the Stampin’ Up Animal Outing Stamp Set and the Buffalo Check Stamp which I made into a plaid.  Take a look.

I started with a piece of Whisper White cardstock and stamped it using the Buffalo Check stamp in Petal Pink.  Then I turned it into a plaid by adding Pool Party and Highland Heather lines using my Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I saw this technique done by one of our wonderful team members Mary Deatherage from Stamps-N-Lingers.  You can see hers here.

I stamped the Kangaroo from the Animal Outing stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on a small piece of Whisper White cardstock.  I colored her in using my Crumb Cake, Ivory and Smoky Slate Stampin’  Blends Markers.  I cut her out using the coordinating Animal Friends Thinlits Dies.  I cut  the 2nd largest circle from the Stitched Shaped Framelit Dies out of Whisper White cardstock and sponged the edge with Highland Heather Ink.

I attached the Kangaroo to the circle using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I made a banner from the Twinkle Twinkle Designer Series Paper using my Banner Triple Punch and adhered it to the plaid panel using Snail.  I adhered the plaid panel to a Highland Heather mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the artwork to the center of the banner using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I then adhered the card front to a Petal Pink card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside panel I stamped the Kangaroo from the Animal Outing stamp set in Soft Suede Ink, stamping it off 3 times to get a very light image, in the center of the Whisper White cardstock.  I stamped the sentiment from the Animal Outing stamp set in Highland Heather Ink over the top of the Kangaroo.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Pool Party mat using Snail and adhered it to the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card off I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the Kangaroo on the bottom front left corner and colored her in the same as I did on the card.  I stamped the Buffalo Check on the envelope flap in Petal Pink Ink.  Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you enjoyed my card and will give it a try. Happy Stamping.
