Stampin’ Up Floral Essence Swirly Frames Birthday Card

Good Thursday morning my fellow stampers.  How is everyone doing today? Hope everyone’s week is moving along smoothly.

I have a pretty easy card for you today, though it does look a little involved, it’s not.  I’ve used a few different stamp sets for you today.  Here’s my card.

To my surprise, my card played along with a few different challenges today.  First off is TGIF Sketch Challenge #224.  Here is their sketch.

Next is Inspire. Create Colour Challenge #049.  Here are their colors.

I was also able to join in with “Just Us Girls” Trend Week Challenge #500.  Here is their theme.

I started by adhering the small Whisper White panel to the Pool Party card front with the tiniest amount of Snail just to hold it in place.  I then randomly stamped the large and small circle images from the Stampin’ Up Swirly Frames Photopolymer Stamp Set in Basic Gray Ink on the 2 panels overlapping some of the circles.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Basic Gray mat using Snail.  I then adhered the matted panel to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid glue matching the circles.

On a scrap of Mango Melody cardstock I stamped the flower image from the Stampin’ Up Floral Essence Photopolymer Stamp Set in Mango Melody Ink twice.  I punched the flowers out using the Perennial Flower Punch.  I adhered the flowers together using a Glue Dot and adhered it to the artwork panel using a Stampin’ Dimensional.  I stamped the leaf image from the Floral Essence stamp set 3 times in Pool Party Ink on a scrap of Pool Party cardstock and punched them out using the Leaf Punch.  I adhered the leaves under the flower using Glue Dots.

On a small strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Itty Bitty Birthdays Stamp Set in Basic Gray Ink.  I adhered the sentiment strip to a Basic Gray mat using Snail.  I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the card front to a Basic Gray card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I colored a few Clear Rhinestone Basic Jewels using my Mango Melody Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the colored rhinestones to the card front.

On the inside I stamped another flower image from the Floral Essence stamp set in Basic Gray Ink on the top and bottom of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the leaf image from the Floral Essence stamp set in Pool Party Ink around the flowers.  I colored the flowers in using my Mango Melody Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the inside of the flowers with the flower center image from the Floral Essence stamp set in Basic Gray Ink stamping off once.  I stamped the sentiment from the Floral Essence stamp set in Basic Gray Ink in the center of the panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Basic Gray card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the flower image from the Floral Essence stamp set in Basic Gray Ink on the envelope front.  I stamped the leaves from the Floral Essence stamp set in Pool Party Ink around the flowers.  I colored the flowers in the same as I did for the card.  I stamped the small circle image from the Swirly Frames stamp set in Basic Gray Ink 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 Painted Seasons Double Time Technique

Good Saturday morning my fellow stampers. I don’t usually do posts on the weekends, but I wanted to show you one last Sale-A-Bration card.  Tomorrow is your last day to order any Sale-A-Bration items.

RUN DON’T WALK TO YOUR COMPUTERS TO PLACE YOUR ORDERS.

Today’s card I used the gorgeous Distinctive Stampin’ Up Painted Seasons Stamp Set and the Stampin’ Up Part Of My Story Stamp Set. I also tried the Double Time Technique for my card.  I am really going to miss this Distinctive set. Here’s my card.

The colors I used were part of The Color Throwdown Challenge #536.

I started by taking 2 panels of Very Vanilla cardstock and put the tiniest amount of Snail in the center to just hold them in place.  I stamped the sentiment from the Part Of My Story stamp set in Soft Suede Ink in the center of the top panel.  I stamped the flower image from the Painted Seasons stamp set randomly around on the cardstock in Blushing Bride Ink.  I stamped the fern image from the same stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink randomly between the flowers.  I stamped the leaf image from the same stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink stamping off once.

I adhered each of the Very Vanilla panels to a Blushing Bride mat using Snail.  I lined up the images and adhered the smaller matted panel to the larger matted panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I then adhered the artwork to a Pear Pizzazz card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the inside I stamped the flowers, ferns and leaves from the Painted Seasons stamp set randomly on a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Strong And Beautiful Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink in the center of the Very Vanilla panel.  This stamp set has the most beautiful sentiments and font in it.  I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to a Blushing Bride mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Pear Pizzazz card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Very Vanilla Envelope.  I stamped the flower, fern and leaf images from the Painted Seasons stamp set randomly on the envelope front and the envelope flap the same as I did for the card front.

Thank you so much for taking the time to visit my blog today.  I hope you liked my Double Time card and will give it a try.  Enjoy your weekend.  Happy Stamping!!
