Happy Birthday Gorgeous!


I love the colour combination in this card I created using the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stampset - Bermuda Bay, Granny Apple Green and Flirty Flamingo.  I can't say this was necessarily an intentional colour choice, but as I started thinking about the card, it was the one that came to mind.  I really like the result.



Now check out the final project.  Isn't this pretty and so "Spring-y"!


This stamp set is retiring when the new Annual Catalogue is released in June.  Now is the time to get yours if it is gone!  

Here's the instructions so that you can make this card for your self.


Instructions

  1. Cut Bermuda Bay card stock 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" and score in half to make card base.
  2. On a 3 3/4" x 5" piece of Whisper White card stock, stamp flowers and vines along left and bottom edge
    1. I stamped the Flirty Flamingo flower in the left corner first and the added the leaves in each direction.  Then stamp the flower and more leaves and so on until the edges are complete.
    2. For the inside of the flower, I "stamped off" (lightly touch your inked up stamp on a scrap of paper and then stamp your image) to create a lighter colour for the middle.
  3. Stamp the Bermuda Bay flowers in the bottom left.  Stamp off for the middle of the flower
  4. Stamp random leaves in Granny Apple Green
  5. Adhere random sequin to the card front
  6. Adhere the stamped card front to the a 4" x 5 1/4" piece of Granny Apple Green card stock using Snail
  7. Adhere to the card base using Snail.

Swap Share Sunday - Half Full

Today I'm sharing a card I received in a swap I participated in with fellow Stampin' Up! Demonstrators.  This beautiful gift card holder was made by Diane Evans and features the Half Full stamp set.  



These pictures don't do the card justice!  It's beautiful!  Diane has used Stampin' Blends to colour the wine bottle, wine glass and grapes. 

This stampset is retiring at the end of May so if it is on your Wishlist, you want to order it before it's gone!

If you live in Canada, I would love to be your demonstrator!  You can shop in my Online Store.


Please be sure to use the current Host Code NYHHY6AN to receive a free gift from me. When you place a $50 order (before shipping and taxes) using the Host Code, I'll send you four cards and instructions by mail as a thank you.  If your order is over $200, please do not use the Hostess Code as you'll qualify for Stampin' Rewards, but I'll still send you the 4 free cards! 


Happy Stamping!

Sweet, Adorable Baby Bear!

For the next few weeks I'm featuring stamp sets and other products that will be retiring at the end of May.

Today, I've used the Baby Bear stamp set to make an adorable card for a new baby or for a baby's birthday.  This stamp set includes 3 stamps for the bear all adding more and more details.  The Stamparatus is perfect for this technique - you can line up the stamps perfectly.



I'm very sad that this stamp set is retiring when the new Annual Catalogue is released in June.  Now is the time to get yours if it is gone!  

Here's the instructions so that you can make this card for your self.


Instructions

  1. Cut Mint Macaron card stock 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" and score in half to make card base.
  2. Using the Stamparatus, line up the 3 bear images so they perfectly align.  
  3. Stamp the 1st image (the full bear image) in Sahara Sand on Whisper White card stock (3 3/4" x 5")
  4. Stamp the next image (with a little bit of detail) in Crumb Cake
  5. Stamp the most detailed bear image in Soft Suede.
  6. Stamp the sentiment in Mint Macaron
  7. Adhere the stamped image to a piece of Crumb Cake card stock (4" x 5 1/4") using Snail.
  8. Adhere to the card base using Snail
  9. Adhere a bow tied from the Mint Macaron twine using a Glue Dot.
