Stampin’ Up Bella and Friends Pretty Kitty for Watercooler Wednesday

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers.  How was your weekend?  Did anyone watch the Super Bowl? Did your team win or did you just watch for the commercials like I do?

For today’s card I have a little girls birthday card using the Stampin’ Up Bella and Friends Stamp Set and the Stampin’ Up Pretty Kitty Stamp Set.  I also used the beautiful Lovely Lipstick Foil Sheets that are free with a $50 order during Sale-A-Bration.  You get 8 sheets of this gorgeous paper, 4 Lovely Lipstick and 4 Grapefruit Grove.  Get it before supplies run out.

For my card today I joined Watercooler Wednesday challenge #206. Be sure to stop by to see everyone’s projects and to play along.  Here is their challenge.

I started by layering a panel of the Lovely Lipstick Foil Sheet and a panel of Animal Expedition Designer Series Paper on a Lemon Lime Twist card base.  I decided where I wanted the peek-a-boo circle and placed my Layering Circles Framelits Dies on top of the card front.  Using my Big Shot I ran it through all 3 layers, going through a couple of times to make sure it cut  all the way through.  I adhered the Lovely Lipstick Foil Sheet on the Lemon Lime Twist card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and the Animal Expedition DSP on the Foil Sheet using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Using my Big Shot again, I cut the scallop circle from the Layering Circles Framelits Dies that was larger than the card front circle out of Lovely Lipstick Foil Sheet.  I adhered the scallop circle over the card front circle using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the dog with balloon image from the Bella and Friends stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the image in using my Call Me Clover, Calypso Coral, Crumb Cake, Granny Apple Green, Mango Melody, Pool Party and Rich Razzleberry Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I then fussy cut the image using my Paper Snips.

I adhered the dog to the right of the circle using Stampin’ Dimensionals and the bird just under the circle using Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I stamped the sentiment from the Pretty Kitty stamp set in Berry Burst Ink on a strip of Whisper White cardstock and made a banner using my Triple Banner Punch.  I adhered the banner to the left side of the card front using Snail.

On the inside I stamped the kitty in the flower-pot image from the Pretty Kitty stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a Whisper White panel.  I lined it up and stamped it so that it would be peeking through the card front circle.  I colored the kitty in using my Call Me Clover, Calypso Coral, Mango Melody, Petal Pink, Pool Party, Rich Razzleberry and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Berry Burst mat using Snail and adhered it to the inside of the Lemon Lime Twist card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I stamped the sentiment from the Pretty Kitty stamp set on a scrap of Whisper White cardstock in Berry Burst Ink.  I cut the sentiment out using the oval from the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies.  I cut a scalloped oval from the Layering Ovals Framelits Dies, that was just larger than the stitched oval, out of the Lovely Lipstick Foil Sheet.  I adhered the stitched oval to the scalloped oval using Snail and adhered it to the inner liner using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the puppy and kitty image from the Bella and Friends and Pretty Kitty stamp sets on the front of the envelope.  I colored them in the same as I did for the card.  I adhered a piece of Animal Expedition DSP to the envelope flap.

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

Stampin’ Up Assorted Valentine Cards

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers.  Well, we made it to Friday.  Has anyone made any fun plans for the weekend?

For today I have an assortment of cards for you.  They are all the same design just different colors and images.  This card is super simple and quick.  I never make 2 cards the same, so that’s why each card is a different color and had a different image on it.  This is one of the cards we will be making next week at my workshop.  Take a look.

As you can see all the cards are kind of the same.  The frog card is made with Melon Mambo and the 1 1/2″ Circle Punch.  The puppy is made with Poppy Parade and the Layering Ovals Framelits Dies and the kitty is made with Blushing Bride and the Layering Ovals Framelits Dies.  All these cards are Peek-A-Boo cards.


I started with a card base in each of the differed colors. Using Snail, I adhered a panel of either Brights 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper or Subtle 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to match the card base. I then adhered a strip of the matching cardstock along the seam of the DSP.  I punched the 1 1/2″ Circle Punch out of the Melon Mambo card and the Layering Ovals Framelits Dies from the Poppy Parade and Blushing Bride cards.

I stamped the Happy Valentine’s Day sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Forever Lovely stamp set in either Tuxedo Black Memento Ink (on the Melon Mambo or Poppy Parade cards) or Early Espresso Ink (for the Blushing Bride card) above the circle or ovals.  I wrapped a piece of Whisper White 5/8″ Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon around the top of each card base and tied a knot.  I added 3 Rhinestone Basic Jewels to each of the card fronts.

On a piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the frog from Stampin’ Up So Hoppy Together, the puppy from Stampin’ Up Bella & Friends stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and the kitten from Stampin’ Up Pretty Kitty stamp set in Early Espresso Ink.  I colored the frog in using my Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I colored the puppy in using my Poppy Parade and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I colored the kitten in using my Crumb Cake and Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends Markers and my Blushing Bride Stampin’ Write Marker.  I cut each of the images out using the 1 1/2″ Circle Punch or the same size Oval from the Layering Ovals Framelits Dies. 

I stamped the You Are Loved sentiment from the Forever Lovely stamp set on a Whisper White panel using Melon Mambo, Poppy Parade or Early Espresso Inks.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of each of the card bases.

I lined up the cut image with the card front and using Stampin’ Dimensionals I adhered the images to the inside panel.

To complete each card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the frog, puppy or kitten on the front of each envelope and colored them in the same as I did for the cards.  I adhered a piece of the matching 6 X 6 DSP to the envelope flaps.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my cards and will give them a try.  This is a super quick and easy card that looks like you took a lot of time to make. Happy Stamping.

Stampin’ Up Animal Outing Peekaboo Birthday Card

Good Friday morning everyone.  Hope you had a successful week and are making some fun plans for the weekend ahead.

For today’s card I used the Animal Outing stamp set again.  I just can’t get enough of these adorable animals.  I made this one into a peekaboo card.  Take a look.

I started by taking the Petal Pink card base, a piece of Balmy Blue cardstock and a piece of Animal Expedition Designer Series Paper.  I layered the 3 pieces together and using the 5th Layering Circles Framelits Dies I cut through all 3 layers with my Big Shot.  I then took the Animal Expeditions DSP and using the 6th Layering Circles Framelit Die I centered it around the already cut circle and cut the larger circle with my Big Shot.  I adhered the Animal Expeditions DSP to the Balmy Blue cardstock using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue again to the card base.  On a piece of Gorgeous Grape cardstock I used the 6th Layering Circle Framelit Die and the 7th Layering Circle Scallop Framelit Die together and cut out the frame for the circle.  I adhered it to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I stamped the Rhino image on a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock in Soft Suede Ink.  I colored it in using my Highland Heather Stampin’ Blends Markers.  Using my Big Shot I cut the image out with the Animal Friends Thinlits Dies that coordinate with the stamp set.  The Rhino did have a bird sitting on its tusk, I cut that off using my Paper Snips.  I stamped the cupcake image from the Bella and Friends stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on a scrap of Whisper White cardstock.  I colored the cupcake in using my Highland Heather and Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I then fussy cut the cupcake out.  I adhered the Rhino to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and I attached the cupcake to the top of the Rhino’s tusk using a Mini Stampin’ Dimensional.

I cut a couple of the branches out from the Animal Friends Thinlits Dies in Tranquil Tide cardstock and attached them to the left side of the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue so that they overlapped the circle.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Pretty Kitty stamp set in Tranquil Tide Ink about 2/3 of the way down on a Whisper White liner.  On a piece of scrap Whisper White cardstock, I stamped the branch with the frog image from Animal Outing stamp set twice in Tranquil Tide Ink.  I stamped the giraffe from the same stamp set in Soft Suede Ink.  I colored the branches with the frog with my Crumb Cake and Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I colored the giraffe with my Petal Pink Stampin’ Blend Markers.  I then cut the images out with my Big Shot using the Animal Friends Thinlits Dies.  I cut a couple more branches out in Tranquil Tide cardstock.  I cut the frog off one of the branches and arranged the branches using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and the giraffe using Stampin’ Dimensionals above the sentiment.  I adhered the Whisper White liner to a Tranquil Tide mat using Snail then adhered it to the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish off my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the giraffe image using Soft Suede Ink and the branch with the frog image using Tranquil Tide Ink on the front of the envelope and colored them in the same way I did on the card.  I adhered a piece of Animal Expedition DSP to the envelope flap.  Thank you for visiting my blog.  Hope you will stop back again soon.
