Stampin’ Up Enjoy Life Birthday Card

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers.  How are you doing today?  I hope everyone’s week has started off well.

For today’s card I did some sponging and some embossing for you.  I have to admit, it took me a couple do-overs before I got this card to look like I wanted and didn’t have any mess ups.  Here’s my card.

My card for today played along with 3 challenges.  First is As You See It challenge #202.  Here are their colors.

Next I played along with Inspire.Create challenge #045  Here is their theme.

I also joined in with Seize The Birthday challenge # 167.

I started with a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  Using my Stamping Sponges I first sponged the Calypso Coral Ink along the top half of the panel.  I Then sponged the Daffodil Delight Ink on the bottom half of the panel.

I stamped the grass and flower image from the Stampin’ Up Enjoy Life Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the bottom of the sponged panel.  I stamped the mountain image from the Stampin’ Up Waterfront Photopolymer Stamp Set in Smoky Slate Ink across the center of the panel.  I stamped the trees from the Waterfront stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink in front of the mountains.  Lastly I stamped the bike rider from the Enjoy Life stamp set in Versamark Ink on the bottom of the panel and immediately sprinkled it with Black Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Itty Bitty Birthdays Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the top of the panel.  I adhered the artwork to a thin Mossy Meadow mat using Snail.  I then adhered it to a Mossy Meadow card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Enjoy Life stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the mountain image from the Waterfront stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink along the bottom of the Whisper White panel.  I stamped the trees from the Waterfront stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink on the bottom in front of the mountains.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Mossy Meadow card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the bike rider image from the Enjoy Life stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the envelope front.  I stamped the grass and tree images from the Waterfront stamp set in Mossy Meadow 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!!****************************************************************************************************

So, for today’s card I have a quick and easy knid of a fun fold for you along with a sneak peek of  some new 2019-2021 In-Colors.  Here’s my card.

I started by adhering a panel of the new Pretty Peacock 2019-2021 In-Colors Designer Series Paper to a Rococo Rose card base.  On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Enjoy Life Stamp Set in Pretty Peacock.  I stamped one of the butterflies from the Enjoy Life stamp set in Rococo Rose Ink above the sentiment.  I cut the sentiment out using the 2nd largest square from the Stitched Shapes Dies.  I cut the matching scalloped square from the Layering Squares Dies from Rococo Rose cardstock.

I adhered the sentiment panel to the scalloped mat using Snail and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a couple of the new Rococo Rose 2019-2021 Faceted Dots to the artwork.

This is where it is kind of a fun fold.   The edges of the card do not meet, and I did this on purpose.  I added a strip of the Pretty Peacock 2019-2021 In-Color DSP to the inside edge of the card.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Enjoy Life stamp set in Pretty Peacock Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped one of the butterflies from the Enjoy Life stamp set in Pretty Peacock above the sentiment.  I stamped the tall floral image from the Enjoy Life stamp set on the bottom of the Whisper White panel.  I stamped the 2 end ones off once and the center one I stamped off twice.  I stamped the small flower image and the butterflies, both from the Enjoy Life stamp set, in Rococo Rose Ink between the tall flowers and above.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Rococo Rose card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the tall flowers from the Enjoy Life stamp set in  Pretty Peacock Ink on the envelope front, the same as I did for the card.  I stamped the small flowers and the butterflies from the Enjoy Life stamp set in Rococo Rose Ink on the envelope front.  I stamped a couple butterflies from the Enjoy Life stamp set on the envelope back in Pretty Peacock Ink.  I stamped a couple of the small flowers from the Enjoy Life stamp set on the envelope back in Rococo Rose Ink.  I adhered a piece of the Pretty Peacock 2019-2021 In-Color 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!!
