Stampin' Up! Tap, Tap, Tap!

Hey there! It's the last day of June! Wow! This summer is flying by so fast! I hate to say it but fall will be here before we know it. boo.

I've always loved the Tap, Tap, Tap stamp set. When I started working on the cards for my Birthday Card Buffet I knew I wanted to use it:

Stampin_up_tap_tap_tap_1 - Copy

This set combines perfectly with the Typeset Specialty Paper!

Stampin_up_tap_tap_tap_2 - Copy

The typewriter is heat-embossed with white powder on Basic Black card stock, then fussy-cut with Paper Snips. I stamped the top of the typewriter again on Very Vanilla with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, stamped the "tap, tap, tap", then cut out just the sheet of "typing paper" and adhered it.

The mini sheet of "notebook" paper is also a stamp from the set. I cut it out with one of the Squares Collection Framelits and punched the binder holes with a 1/8" Handheld Punch.

Stampin_up_tap_tap_tap_3 - Copy

Inside I stamped "happy Birthday" from my new favorite hostess set, Happy Birthday Everyone. This set has a lovely assortment of phrases to go with the main greeting, including "to a good friend", "to an amazing woman", "to a wonderful man" and more!

Stampin' Up! Timeless Elegance!

Hey there and Happy Monday! I just love Mondays! I know a lot of people hate Mondays, but I guess when you own your own business Monday can have a different feel. For  me Monday's are my best day to get a lot accomplished and create! yay!

Today's card is another from my Birthday Card Buffet last week. I used the new Timeless Elegance Designer Paper with the You've Got This stamp set:

Stampin_up_striped_scallop_1 - Copy

We added the lacy look over the circle opening with the Striped Scallop Thinlet Die, and cut the "cheers" with one of the new Greetings Thinlets.

Stampin_up_striped_scallop_3 - Copy

"Sending Good Thoughts your way" is from Perfect Pennants and the "happy birthday" is from Something to Say.

I particularly designed this card to be adaptable for many different occasions. In addition to birthday it could be used as a sympathy, get well, thinking of you, encouragement, or even a wedding or anniversary.

Stampin'Up! Sunday Swap Day!

Hey there! We had a blast at my Birthday Card Buffet this weekend! I will be sharing more of those cards with you over the next few days!

Today is Sunday Swap Day, and so let's get started!

First, Nancy Hall created her card with the "Build a Birthday" set and Bohemian Designer Series Paper. She cut the cake layers from the DSP instead of stamping them. Even though this photopolymer set is easy to line up, it's even EASIER to line up strips of paper. You can't tell from the picture, but Nancy covered the candle flame with Crystal Effects for dimension and gloss!

Stampin_up_build_a birthday_1

The Bohemian paper IS gorgeous! Nancy used several of the coordinating designs:

Stampin_up_build_a_birthday_2

This set even has a little banner flags stamp, perfect for an extra inside image or to make the envelope coordinating and festive!

Stampin_up_build_a_birthday_3

Next, Raedean Shibata excellent design combines with colors that pack a lot of punch! Raedean also used the Build a Birthday set, turning the cake layers into birthday candles with a bit of Dazzling Diamonds glitter for sparkle!

Stampin_up_build_a_birthday_4

Beverlee Morales chose "You've Got This" for her creation. She combined Crumb Cake,  Woodgrain embossing folder, Decorative Label punch, Deco Labels Framelits, and Tip Top Taupe 1" Dotted Lace Trim:

Stampin_up_you've_got_this_2

Lorraine Duran also chose "You've Got This" and the Decorative Label Punch, using Delightful Dijon, Oval Collection Framelits, and the "birthday wishes" greeting from Build a Birthday.

Stampin_up_you've_got_this_1

Finally, Katy Simecka used soft water coloring, adding layers of Mint Macaron and Tip Top Taupe 1" Lace Trim for an exquisitely feminine look:

Stampin_up_you've_got_this_3

That's all for today. Be sure to come back and see me tomorrow. I will sharing another Birthday Card Buffet creation with the Project Instruction Sheet for you to download!

Stampin' Up! Simply Sports!

Hey there! This card is one of the 8 we are making today at my Birthday Card Buffet using the Simply Sports set:

Stampin_up_simply_sports_3 - Copy

I kept the colors simple but sports-y with Pacific Point, Real Red, and Whisper White. The rhinestones make it even more festive, don't you think?

Stampin_up_simply_sports_4 - Copy

I cut out the window with a Stars Framelit, then bordered it with a Real Red frame I cut with the same star framelit and the next larger star.

Stampin_up_simply_sports_5 - Copy

This set has little people playing with a bunch of different sports equipment. There's even a set of two separate ponytails included in the set so girls can play too!

Stampin' Up! Best Thoughts!

Hey there. About the time I was ready to start working on my post for today (I try to schedule my post for the next day in the evening) the power went out! I took it as a sign that I should just go to bed!

I created today's project with the Best Thoughts Hostess set:

Stampin_up_best_thoughts_1 - Copy

The bloom image (does anyone really know what kind of flower this is? I'm thinking it's maybe a hydrangea?) was heat-embossed with white powder on white vellum, then colored on the back with a Perfect Plum marker. After I colored the whole thing I went back in with an Elegant Eggplant marker and added the darker accents. It looks like a mess from the backside, but when you turn it over it's gorgeous!

Stampin_up_best_thoughts_2 - Copy

Attaching vellum to the card is tricky. Most adhesives show through and if you try to put it just under the colored image it won't stick to the moisture from the ink. I ended up putting a strip of Tear and Tape behind the bloom and a glue dot in every corner, then covered the glue dots with a white candy dot.

Stampin_up_best_thoughts_3 - Copy

Here's the supply list for today's card. You can order everything (even the Hostess set which you can get for free when your total is $150 or more!) in my online store:

Stampin' Up! Kind Koala Slider Pop-Up!

Hey there! I "think" I am finished with slider pop-up cards for awhile, but I couldn't move on to something else without showing you this little cutie pie we made at a class last week:

Stampin_up_kind_koala_1 - Copy

I used Kind Koala, A Dozen Thoughts, All Boxed Up, and the Honeycomb Textured Impressions folder. We used the folder as a stamp!

Stampin_up_kind_koala_2 - Copy

I omitted the flower on the stamp as I inked it with markers so I could replace it with punched flowers from  Petite Petals and Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack. I punched Blackberry Bliss card stock with the 1/4" Handheld punch to add to the center, then finished it off with a rhinestone.

Stampin_up_kind_koala_3 - Copy

The Gold Baker's Twine I used coordinated perfectly with every thing else!

Stampin' Up! The Wilderness Awaits for Mark!

Hey there! I should have posted this card yesterday in my Father's Day post, but I hadn't taken the pics yet, so here it is for today!

As soon as I saw "The Wilderness Awaits" set in the new catalog I knew I wanted it for Mark's Father's Day card. The "Admired, respected, loved . . . , that's you" phrase perfectly describes my husband, so I had to have it!

Stampin_up_the_wilderness_awaits_1 - Copy

I used my current favorite card layout, the slider pop-up!

Stampin_up_the_wilderness_awaits_2 - Copy

The wood paneling layer is from the Farmer's Market Designer Series Paper. I stamped off the elk for the central image and on the paneling layer. Tip Top Taupe was perfect to sponge on the Very Vanilla. I also sponged a bit of Soft Sky around the outside edges of the elk.

Stampin_up_the_wilderness_awaits_5 - Copy

This card had lots of creative spaces for all of the family to sign!

Stampin_up_the_wilderness_awaits_3 - Copy

 

I laid the Expressions Natural Element directly on my Early Espresso inkpad, then quickly dried it with my Heat Tool:
