Stampin’ Up! Ornate Happiest of Birthdays

Good Tuesday morning my stamping friends.  How has your week started off?  I hope everyone has a productive one.  I’ll be at work all week, which means no fun time for me this week.

I have a quick and easy card for you today.  I love large sentiments that make up the whole card.  Here’s today’s card.

My card played along with Seize The Birthday Challenge #195.  Here is their theme.

I started by adhering a panel of Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series Paper to a Bumblebee mat using Stampin’ Seal.  I then adhered the card front to an Old Olive card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the large sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Happiest of Birthdays Cling Stamp Set in Bumblebee Ink.  I cut the image out using the largest die from the Nature’s Thoughts Dies.  I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Seal.

I tied a small bow using the Bumblebee 1/4″ Gingham Ribbon and adhered it to the top of the sentiment using a Glue Dot.  I added a few Gilded Gems to the sentiment.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Itty Bitty Birthdays Cling Stamp Set in Bumblebee Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the daisy image from the Stampin’ Up! Ornate Style Cling Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink, stamping off twice, on the bottom of the panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Bumblebee mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Old Olive card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the daisy image from the Ornate Style stamp set in Early Espresso Ink, stamping off twice, on the envelope front.  I adhered a panel of the Ornate Garden Specialty 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! Blossoms In Bloom Birthday

Good Monday morning my stamping friends.  How was everyone’s weekend?

Today’s card was a little more detailed that I expected.  Did you every read the book ‘If You Give A Mouse A Cookie”?  Well that’s what happen to my card, I just kept going with it.  Here’s my card for today.

I started by cutting the panels of Mint Macaron, Pretty Peacock and So Saffron cardstock using the outlined die from the Many Layered Blossoms Dies.  I cut the Vellum cardstock using the solid die from the Many Layered Blossoms Dies.  I cut the small flower dies from the Many Layered Blossoms Dies out of the Highland Heather cardstock.

I adhered the Pretty Peacock layer to the top of the Vellum Layer using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I took apart the Highland Heather, Mint Macaron and So Saffron die cuts and fit the pieces in like a puzzle adhering them all with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Once all the pieces were attached, I adhered the floral image to a Blushing Bride card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Blossoms In Bloom Photopolymer Stamp Set in Pretty Peacock Ink on a strip of Whisper White cardstock.  I cut the strip into a banner and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the card front to a Blushing Bride card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front and sentiment.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Happiest of Birthdays Cling Stamp Set in Pretty Peacock Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the large floral image from the Blossoms in Bloom stamp set in Blushing Bride Ink on the Whisper White panel.  I stamped the leaf image from the Blossoms in Bloom stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink around the floral image.  I adhered the Highland Heather die cut flowers on the corners of the panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Pretty Peacock mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Blushing Bride card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the large floral image from the Blossoms in Bloom stamp set on the envelope front in Blushing Bride Ink.  I stamped the leaf image from the Blossoms in Bloom stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink around the floral image.  I stamped the small flower images from the Blossoms in Bloom stamp set in Highland Heather Ink on the envelope flap. I stamped the small leaf image from the Blossoms in Bloom stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink around the small flowers.

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

Stampin’ Up! Happiest Of Birthdays For Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers. Welcome to Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop. It’s the 2nd Tuesday of the month so that means Blog Hop Day!! If you are starting with me, be sure to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects. If you’ve hopped over from Amy Koenders blog, welcome to my blog and thank you for stopping by. The theme this month is “Birthday”. I wanted to make a fun card this month, so I decided to use a new set that I just received from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog and the new fun DSP.  Here’s my card.

I started by adhering a panel of Playing With Patterns 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to a Purple Posy card front using Stampin’ Seal.  There are so many great designs to choose from in this pack of DSP, I had to have my daughter pick for me.  I wrapped a piece of the 1/2″ Purple Posy ribbon from the Playing With Patterns Ribbon Combo Pack and tied a bow on the side of the panel.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the largest sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Happiest of Birthdays Cling Stamp Set in Gorgeous Grape Ink.  I cut the sentiment out using the largest die from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies.  I adhered the cut sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I adhered the card front to a Purple Posy card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Purple Posy Playing With Pattern Resin Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Happiest of Birthdays stamp set in Gorgeous Grape Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I adhered a strip of the Playing With Pattern 6 X 6 DSP to the bottom of the panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Purple Posy mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Purple Posy card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I adhered a strip of Playing With Patterns 6 X 6 DSP to the envelope front and a panel to the envelope flap.

Thank you for visiting by my blog today. I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Now that you’ve seen my card, be sure to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects.
