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!

Better 1 or Better 2… Nope It’s Not an Eye Exam!

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

I earned the Berry Blessing Stamp Set and Berry Delightful Designer Series paper with my $100 order during Sale-a-Bration.

Who wouldn’t love this fun set!

Plus it coordinates with the Sweet Stawberry bundle found in the Mini Catalog.

Double the Fun!

The only problem is… Oh and don’t let that shadow effect on the sentiment of the berry background card sway you- it was a happy accident when I dropped my block! Talk about luck.

Here are the measurements for the card that will give you the look on the left. One thing I forgot to mention was that I ran out of the picnick plaid because I made so many of these cards that when I went to design my card class we had to flip the paper pattern. Thank goodness for the product coordination of Stampin’ Up!

  • Real Red Cardstock base 4 1/4 x 11, scored at 2 1/4 and 5 1/2
  • Berry Delightful DSP 4 x 5 1/4, 4 x 1 1/2 and 4 x 2
  • Basic White Card Stock 2 pieces 2 3/4 x 3 3/4

Just a few tips when you make the card- 1. Use your bone folder to burnish those scores or the card won’t lay down right. 2. Tear and tape the smaller top section AFTER adhering the DSP even if you burnished well, you will be happy you did.

The inside.

Here is a fun technique to modify your stamps… cellophane tape (Scotch tape if you only know it by the brand name). Use a piece to block of the words you DON’T want to stamp. Ink the sentiment and remove the tape and stamp your card.

Shadow Stamping Technique And The New Blender Brushes.

Click the image to see a list of supplies used in this card.

When I received the Enjoy the Moment in my package of OnStage gifts from Stampin’ Up! I knew I wanted to do a card with the shadow stamping technique. What I didn’t know was that these blending brushes would be a game changer! Maybe you have had a similar experience where you were using a dauber or a sponge and you didn’t like the results or the tool fell apart? Ok that could be me… I have murdered a few daubers before I bought the ones from Stampin’ Up! Enter the NEW BLENDING BRUSHES.

We can talk about how great they are when we get this card built. Start with a Crumb Cake base with the fold on the left and measuring 4 1/4 x 5 1/2. Stamp the small seed image in Crumb cake all around the edge of the card base. I changed the way I held the stamp as I went along the edge so that the image wasn’t the same all around.

Next cut a piece of Blushing Bride cardstock to 3 3/4 x 5. Dip the Blender Brush in Blushing Bride ink. I tested the color on grid paper to see how much ink and pressure I needed to get the desired color. Let me stop for a moment here and say how great it is to have a HANDLE. It’s a little thing but sticking my finger in the dauber was not really a secure way for me to sponge. Maybe it is my small hands or lack of fine motor skills but they just kept flying off across the desk eventually landing on the floor to make perfectly round ink spots on the carpet. Can’t really blame the dog for that mess.

Back to the card… Repeat the dip and swirl until you get the amount of shadow you want. then stamp the bud image in Roccoco Rose. Alternatively you can stamp the image first then blend but I thought it smudged the image more than I liked. Let the card dry or speed up the drying with the heat tool.

Did you wonder how I got that bright white image? There are two ways to the white 1. Craft ink- for me it was going to be too “chalky” or light for this card 2. white Stampin’ emboss powder. Go with the powder if you want your image to POP! Also if you have an embossing buddy make sure you use it here otherwise if there is any moisture left from the blending it will hold the embossing powder and you will get a distorted image.

After the embossing buddy ink the stamp with Versamark and press on to the cardstock next to the Roccoco Rose image. Cover with white Stampin’ Emboss powder, pour off then flick the back of the card with your finger to remove the last of the powder. Sometimes you may have stray powder outside of the image area, I use my finger nail to scrap it off or a small paint brush works well too. Finish by using the heat tool to melt the powder. Man is that satisfying to watch!

To get the splatters pick up Blushing Bride ink with a water color brush and tap against a finger. While this dries I created the sentiment with a 3/4 x 3 inch piece of Blushing Bride and Roccoco Rose ink. To add the disstressed look I used my scissors along the edges of the cardstock. Distressing is best done the day before you plan to vaccum!

Wrap the main piece with crinkled seam binding and secure with Stampin’ Seal. Layer each piece on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and top with Champagne Rhinestones. On the inside stamp the sentiment and decorate.

SALE-a-Bration Sneek Peek-A Tail of Two Cards.

Did you get a lot of emails or post notifications from me today? First let me apologize for the computer gremlins that hijacked my WordPress. Second I couldn’t let these great cards not get the recognition they deserved so I resent them when I realized they didn’t go out last week as intended.

Last post I mentioned that the best perk of being a demonstrator was my stamping family. Today’s post is two more sneak peeks using the same background stamp and same technique by two different members of my stamping family with two very different results. Both use the Corner Bouquet set you can earn FREE during Sale-a-bration and both use heat embossing to make the image.

Above is from Linda Bauwin. She used the new blending brushes to create the ombre background then embossed the image with white Stampin’ Emboss powder.

This card from Lisa Brown uses the FREE OH so ombre paper from Sale-a-bration as well as silver and gold Stampin’ Emboss powder. The technique is simple- stamp your image in Versamark Ink then coat the image with the two colors of powder. DO NOT return the left over powder to the jars as it will be mixed between the two. I wonder what they would look like mixed then embossed…hmmm… sounds like an experiment that we should do.

I am so proud to be a part of such a creative group of ladies. It is incredibly fun to make cards, bounce off ideas and be apart of their daily lives.

Join my stamp family to share this incredible experience with me… and get some incredible Stampin’ Up! perks in the process.

Whisper White has been a Stampin’ Up! staple for so long. We love it and we know you love it, too. We are sad to announce that the supplier’s mill producing our Whisper White cardstock has permanently closed due to impacts from the COVID-19 pandemic. Unfortunately, we weren’t given much notice on this closure. This means that the technology unique to this particular supplier is now unavailable to us and we can no longer offer our Whisper White cardstock and related products, such as Whisper White Note Cards & Envelopes. Please note that this won’t affect any of our other cardstocks, this only affects Whisper White.

We know Whisper White has a huge fan base; we’re big fans, too! And we are crushed that it’s going away. Even though this decision was out of our hands, rest assured that we jumped right into action to find the best replacement paper possible. We have dedicated many hours to source and test alternative cardstock options from several suppliers to find the perfect fit that still maintains the Stampin’ Up! quality you know and trust. We are happy to share that we have found a winner for our new cardstock, Basic White! 

The quality of our new Basic White was thoroughly tested by our quality assurance and product teams. It also tested very well with demonstrators and concept artists who gave it a huge thumbs up. We believe in the quality of the new Basic White cardstock and we know it will become your new crafting staple! 

What does this mean for you?

With Whisper White going out of production, this means a number of Whisper White products will be affected. We know preorder is a time for you to purchase new items to prepare for the upcoming months of your business so we wanted to give you this information before Whisper White products sell out and before all Basic White products are fully ready so you can include it in your business planning. Below is a list of all products that will be replaced with our new Basic White cardstock. These items are now available while supplies last with an order limit of 2 per item per order.

Thank you for BUZZING IN, I couldn’t be happier to have you visit! Happy New Year, I am so thankful that 2021 has just begun. Not only it is a whole new begining fresh and full of possiblities BUT it is SALE-A-BRATION (also known as SAB) time. To kick it off right above is a card featuring 2 fun items you can earn for FREE. Keep reading to find out how you can earn these specialy created items.

First let me tell you how this card is made:

  1. Create an A4 size card base using the paper trimmer and Bermuda Bay Cardstock. Cut the long side at 5 1/2 inches then fold one of the two pieces in half with the fold on the left side. **This card is quick and easy, perfect to make two at a time.**
  2. Trim the Oh So Ombre designer series paper (DSP) to 2 1/2 x 5 inches and cut a tag edge.
  3. Line up the DSP on the card base and use a pencil to mark the edge. This will be your guide to stamp the background leaves.
  4. Using the leaves from the Positive Thoughts stamp, an E block and Garden Green Ink stamp along the lines you drew in step three. Don’t forget to change the direction of the stamp and stamp multiple times to get a natural look with dimesion.
  5. Load up the Happy Birthday! Sentiment from the Approaching Perfection SAB set on a C block and in Garden Green stamp the inside of the card. Add some more leaves for a coordinating accent. See the photo below.

6. Next we will create the front sentiment, I used Whisper White but Basic White is replacing that cardstock. Color “perfection” in with the Garden Green Stampin’ Write and the rest of the sentiment with the Bermuda Bay Stampin’ Write. Use the Huffing technique to moisten the ink. Not sure how to do this technique, check it out here.

7. Crop the sentiment with the Tasteful Labels dies. Adhere to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. See photo below.
