News Flash Simple Stamping- Birthday Bonanza Card 6

Click the image above to see the products used in this card.

This month I am going to blow up your inbox with so many birthday wishes your are going to think it is YOUR special day! Next to Christmas cards, birthday cards are my most made and sent cards. My guess is that it is yours too so get ready for tons of inspiration. Find card 1 HERE, card 2 HERE, card 3 HERE, card 4 HERE, card 5 HERE. (This is starting to remind me of roll call in school).

In the previous post from this series I showed you the inspiration card from Leigh Amburgey using the Approaching Perfection stamp set from Sale-A-Bration. I wanted to design a “simple stamping” card using this set that could be made by anyone at any time with minimal supplies. Let me say that for those of us who are completely addicted “simple stamping” cards are HARD because we always want to add just one more X. I would say we need a 12 step program to help but then I am sure I would add a 13th step :).

Since this card is only really 1 layer I used the Basic White Thick as my base. I chose Pacific Point, Smokey Slate and Real Red ink colors as I really wanted a more masculine feel to the card. Only 1 D size clear block is needed and a pair of paper snips. Dimensionals were used to pop up the sentiment and some Wink of Stella gives it some shine but that is my inner junkie coming out again. The inside is stamped Happy Birthday! in Smokey Slate.

My type A personality made me keep the candles in line at the top and bottom to the best of my ability but I think next time I will make them a bit more CrAzY. If you want to step up the card without going to too much effort put a layer of Basic Black under the sentiment like Leigh did in the previous post.

News Flash the Inspiration- Birthday Bonanza Card 5

This month I am going to blow up your inbox with so many birthday wishes your are going to think it is YOUR special day! Next to Christmas cards, birthday cards are my most made and sent cards. My guess is that it is yours too so get ready for tons of inspiration. Find card 1 HERE, card 2 HERE, card 3 HERE, card 4 HERE.

This card was made by Leigh Amburgey as a part of a stampin’ family card swap. If that sounds like fun (and it is) to you scroll down to the bottom and become a part of my stampin’ family. Leigh’s card really did a great job of showing off coordinating designer series paper and bringing in lots of color! My favorite part is how she created the sentiment.

Using the now retired Approaching Perfection stamp from Sale-A-Bration she stamped the image on the cardstock in the main color- Bermuda Bay then again on another cardstock piece in Rococo Rose. By triming out the “NEWS FLASH” portion of the Rococo Rose piece she was able to really bring it out to be a focal point. Stay tuned for the next post and you can see the card I made using this one as an inspiration.

Scrapilicious- Birthday Bonanza Card 4

Click the image above to see the items used to make this card.

This month I am going to blow up your inbox with so many birthday wishes your are going to think it is YOUR special day! Next to Christmas cards, birthday cards are my most made and sent cards. My guess is that it is yours too so get ready for tons of inspiration. Find card 1 HERE, card 2 HERE, card 3 HERE.

Do you find yourself with tons of left over “scraps” of paper that you just can’t let go of because they are so pretty and you might be able to make a card out of them- even the teeny tiny ones?! I see I am not alone 🙂 The next card in my birthday bonanza series is a scrap buster that can be replicated with any stamp set and paper.

Start with finding two pieces of scrap designer series paper (DSP) and foil you want to use – 1 wide and the other narrow and a neutral base, this cardstock base is Basic White. I used retired Oh So Ombre paper from Sale-a-bration and Love You Always Foil that is available in the Mini Catalog. Draw a light line along the edge of your scrap on to the base so you will know where to stamp. This card uses Tuxedo Black Momento Ink. I like the crisp image it gives and the ability to color the image which you can see I did not do so this time. Cut a ribbon edge on the the pieces of scrap at different lengths and adhere with Stampin’ Seal.

The DSP and sentiment are from the Many Messages Bundle used in card 2 linked above, more ways to use what you already have! Pop it up with some dimensionals and you are done. Take a peek at the variation below for a monochromatic look, stamp the flowers (and sentiment) with the coordinating ink.

Custom Made Designer Series Paper- Birthday Bonanza Card 3

Click the link to see the items used in this card.

This month I am going to blow up your inbox with so many birthday wishes your are going to think it is YOUR special day! Next to Christmas cards, birthday cards are my most made and sent cards. My guess is that it is yours too so get ready for tons of inspiration. Find card 1 HERE, card 2 HERE.

First I should say that I am so very happy with how this card turned out! Sometimes I feel guilty about not really loving the more feminine colors in our amazing palate of color choices so I tend to make more cards from them, we wouldn’t want them to be sad and lonely after all. THIS card though just makes me feel really (and perhaps a bit more than it should) happy considering it is all the things I would not consider myself to be… soft, delicate, frilly and all sorts of feminine pretty. I say all of this because I want to remind you that the “perfect” card for someone is the card you send them, they will feel the love, trust me. One thing this card is like me is thrifty! Read on to find out how.

Start with a base of Petal Pink. The next layer is the Blushing Bride Love You Always Foil sheet. Here is where we get “thrifty”. The stitched square die cut out from under the vellum is taken from this layer before you adhere it to the base. Why let all that amazing foil not be used!

To make the custom designer series paper (DSP) cut a Very Vanilla cardstock piece to 3 3/4 x 5″. Start by stamping the outline in Petal Pink. Remember to rotate the stamp to give it a more random appearance. The magic happens when you stamp the flower fill, that awesome color variation is because of how the stamp is cut. You do not have to do a thing to get that beautiful depth!

Pop up the Stitched rectangle of foil paper with some dimensionals and add the Square Vellum Doiles. I used Stampin’ Seal but vellum is slippery so when I make more of this card I will use Mini Glue dots instead. Regardless of your adhesive choice make sure to place it under the area of the sentiment otherwise it will show thru.

The sentiment is stamped on Basic White in Calypso Coral so it really stands out, then punch with the Every Day Label Punch.

You might have noticed that I didn’t mention the stamp name… It’s A Touch of Ink which was only available during Sale-a-bration. If you didn’t earn this stamp below is a listing of current stamps that will give you the same effect on your cards, just imagine all the possibilities!

This Post Has Nothing To Do With Making Cards

BUT it does have everything to do with why I would make a card -LOVED ones… our friends and family AND making applesauce.

Here’s the crew (myself obviously) above are my parents otherwise known as Papa and Nana. Can you believe they drove an hour and a half just to make applesauce all day. Below is Luna, I would say that she was clean up crew but she didn’t want the apples until they were cooked.

The BEFORE photo, we started with 4 pecks of Cortland seconds- they look pretty perfect to me.

Papa really makes short work of these apples with the peeler.

This is how they look after peeled, spiral cut and Nana does the fine work to get the last little bits off that the peeler can’t get due to the irregularities of the apples.

Don’t worry all those peels and cores don’t go to waste, they go into the juicer. After straining with some muslin I pour off the top for cider.

The “meat” of the apples go into a pot with a bit of water  and cooked until soft. IMG_0020

I will skip to the final product and spare everyone the mutilation of apples by the blender. After canning we were going to let them cool in the garage but late fall came early this year and it was just too cold and windy. So too the laundry room they went.IMG_0021.jpg

Comment below with your guess of how many gallons of applesauce and apple cider was made. One small hint… there are mostly quart size jars were used.

Now don’t think that there isn’t a card in this blog at all! One of my all time favorite thank you cards will be going out to my incredible parents who give so much and ask so little in return.

Check out the original blog post for this thank you card HERE.
