30 Day Card Challenge ~ with Beautiful Friendship

30 Day Card Challenge ~ with Beautiful Friendship

Welcome to day 3 of the April 2020, 30 Day Card Challenge. Today’s card is beautiful and it is one that I cased from a card I created for a customer a few months ago.

Here is my card: let me tell you how I made it.

Beautiful Friendship Photopolymer Stamp Set

Friendships are some of the most precious things we have in our lives. Show this to your friends, and create heartfelt projects using the Beautiful Friendship Stamp Set.

There are 13 photopolymer stamps in this stamp set. They are totally transparent clear stamps for perfect image placement. They have just enough give to create a perfectly stamped image every time and they cling like crazy to our clear blocks so you don’t have to worry about slipping.

I use the stamps with our Stampin’ Pierce Mat to get an even pressure and ink coverage with detailed or background stamps, every time.

Color Palette

This color palette looks dynamite together. I love the pop of gorgeous grape right there in the middle of the roses. The granny apple green is the perfect

Creating the Card

In my video, which you can watch here, I show you how easy it is to create the card with the stamp images.

I started with a piece of Whisper White cardstock measuring 5″ x 3.75″. I take the biggest of the rose stamps and start in one corner, the top left side of the corner, and stamp.

Then, I flip it the cardstock and stamp again, leaving a space or void in the middle for where the sentiment will be attached.

Card Layout

I started with a piece of thick whisper white cardstock, cut in the hamburger style, measuring 5.5″ x 8.5″ and scored down the middle at 4.2″, for my card base.

I mounted a piece of Grapefruit Grove cardstock as a mat measuring 4″ x 5.25″ and then I adhered my floral focal point to the front with snail.

Next, I grabbed a rectangle stitched framelit and and the’happy birthday’ from Perennial Birthday to finished off the card.

Card Inspiration

I mentioned that I originally created this card for a custom card order. Let me show you the original card.

I changed the color palette up for this card, but the concept is completely the same. I love that both of these cards are clean and simple.

Thank you for joining me today! Check back tomorrow for another card and video.

30 Day Card Challenge ~ Featuring Snow Front

30 Day Card Challenge ~ Featuring Snow Front

Welcome to day 2 of the 30 day card challenge, April 2020. Today’s card is all about running away to a log cabin in the middle of nowhere away from people. I am calling it an #isolationcreation.

Let me show you my card and tell you how I made it.

Snow Front Photopolymer Stamp Set #150483

Create tranquil scenes with the 17 piece, Snow Front Stamp Set, whether it’s cozy cabins with dainty deer or playful cardinals in a winter forest. This is a Two-Step Stampin’ set; it allows you to layer two or more images to create one final image with extra texture and dimension in the colors you want.

Stampin’ Up!’s photopolymer stamps
* Are transparent clear stamps for perfect image placement.
* Have just enough give to create a perfectly stamped image every time.
* Stay on our clear blocks so you don’t have to worry about slipping.
* Save space—you need only one set of blocks for all your photopolymer stamps (blocks sold separately).
* Come packaged in cases with images on the spine for easy storage and quick reference.

I use the stamps with our Stampin’ Pierce Mat to get an even pressure and ink coverage with detailed or background stamps, every time.

Birch Cling Stamp #149256

The Birch Stamp is a great stamp to create super-realistic birch backgrounds with!

Stampin’ Up!’s cling stamps
* Are premium rubber stamps.
* Have deeply etched images so you get a superior stamped impression each time.
* Are precut so you don’t have to trim.
* Are repositionable; temporarily mount them on clear blocks for stamping, then remove them for storage.
* Save space—you need only one set of blocks for all your cling stamps (blocks sold separately).
* Come packaged in cases with images on the spine for easy storage and quick reference.

Basic Card Layout

This card came together very quickly. Check out my video here.

I started with a Sahara Sand card base cut in the hamburger style, measuring 5.5″ x 8.5″ scored down the middle at 4.25″.

I cut a Balmy Blue card mat measuring 4″ x 5.25″ and mounted it flat to the card base.

Next, I used my stamparatous to stamp the birch stamp onto a piece of sahara sand cardstock measuring 5″ x 3.75″ to create my background. The video shows this perfectly and it was easy to use.

Creating the Focal Point

Creating the focal point is easy with four step instructions.

  1. I stamped the Log Cabin in Early Espresso
  2. I stamped the earth in front of the cabin in Crumb Cake
  3. I stamped the river in Balmy Blue
  4. I stamped the douglas fir tree in Shaded Spruce

I then die cut it out in a stitched oval framelit and mounted it to a balmy blue scallop oval. I attached some of our brand new 5/16″ Braided Burlap Trim to the card as a flag (see the video for a neat trick to make it lay flat) and then popped everything up on dimensionals.

This card makes me want to runaway somewhere peaceful quiet where I am surrounded by nature and NOBODY else. (LOL) Wouldn’t you agree?

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you have a terrific day and I’ll see you again soon.

30 Day Card Challenge for the Month of April ~ Starting with March’s Paper Pumpkin: No Matter The Weather

30 Day Card Challenge for the Month of April ~ Starting with March’s Paper Pumpkin: No Matter The Weather

It’s April!

I am grateful March is behind us. I finished off Sale-A-Bration strong and it is time to move forward. Since we are all stuck in our homes for the next few weeks there is no better time then the present to do a 30 day card challenge.

I am starting with a Paper Pumpkin Alternative that I made using the FREE stamp set from the March Paper Pumpkin.

Here’s my Card, and let me tell you how I made it.

March 2020 Paper Pumpkin

Not only is it blooming with fresh-picked, springtime details, but it also features a FREE, bonus stamp set—just to thank you for being our customer. This kit is perfect for reminding your friends that even when the forecast is cloudy with a chance of rain, days of sparkling sunshine are not far behind.

Okay, NOW about my adorable card for the #30DayCardChallenge

Card Layout

I started with a Night of Navy cardbase cut in the hambuger style at 5.5″ x 8.5″ scored down the middle at 4.25″. I made a Whisper White insert measuring 4″ x 5.25″ for the inside and left it blank for writing.

Next, I took a Mossy Meadow cardstock mat measuring 4″ x 5.25″ and mounted it to the cardbase with snail.

I cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock at 5″ x 3.75″ and mounted it to the Mossy Meadow. I also attached two 1/2″ strips of cardstock: one in Mossy Meadow and one in Basic Gray and mounted them the Whisper White.

Finally, I attached a scallop oval with boots to the right side of the card and placed the sentiment to the bottom left of it.

I like the card and the color palette so much I made three of them in all three color options.

Check out my video here for more fun!

Accetate Challenge with Happy Birthday To You Sale-A-Bration Stamp Set

Accetate Challenge with Happy Birthday To You Sale-A-Bration Stamp Set

Today’s card was so much fun to create. I was invited to join in on an accetate challenge with a demonstrator in the UK and this is the fun card I created.

Card challenges or “paper craft” challenges are meant to get our creative juices flowing and when I was asked to participate in this challenge I was excited to see what I could come up with.

My Card Layout

I started with a piece of Grapefruit Grove cardstock cut in the hotdog fold style at 4.25″ x 11″ and scored down the middle at 5.5″.

I cut off 4″ and left a 1-1/2″ hang from the top. I then cut my accetate to 4.25″ x 5.25″. I adhered it to the top of the Grapefruit Grove and covered the backside to create a clean line.

On the inside I took a piece of Whisper White cardstock measuring 4″ x 5.25″ and adhered it flat.

I then stamped in Momento Black ink the birthday cake on the Whisper White. I stamped again in Stazon Black ink on the accetate where they matched up. Once the stazon was dry I used my stampin’ blends to color in the flowers on the accetate.

I finished up my card with a ribbon from my ribbon stash and a piece of Whisper White embossed with the Coastal Weave embossing folder.

I also did a small sentiment in the front bottom of my card, to keep it simple.

I hope you have loved this card and are inspired to create with accetate.

The Gangs All Meer In An Adorable Silhouette Card

The Gangs All Meer In An Adorable Silhouette Card

There are 2 days left in this year’s Sale-a-Bration sale. TODAY AND TOMORROW ~ You heard me right it ends March 31st at midnight (mt). SO, NOW is the time to take advantage of these items before they are gone forever!!!

In today’s card, I am featuring the adorable The Gangs All Meer, again, in a fun silhouette card.

The concept of this card is going around all over social media and on Pinterest and respectfully ~ it’s stinking cute. I wanted in on the action too, but in my own way.

Let me tell you all about my version of this fun concept.

The Gang’s All Meer Cling Stamp Set #152294

Wish someone happy birthday or show them support from the whole gang with a card or project created using The Gang’s All Meer Stamp Set. After all, what’s cuter than a bunch of meerkats?

Earn this adorable 9 piece stamp set FREE with a qualifying purchase January 3–March 31, 2020, during our Sale-A-Bration promotion!

Cling Stamps from Stampin’ Up!

* Have deeply etched images for excellent detail.
* Are precut so you don’t have to trim them.
* Cling to clear blocks without slipping.
* Are repositionable—temporarily mount on clear blocks to stamp, then remove to store.
* Save space—one set of blocks (sold separately) works for all your cling and photopolymer stamps.
* Have images on the spine of the case for easy storage and quick reference.

My Card Layout Creating a Background

For my silhouettes to be looking off into the sunset I needed to create a sunset. I cut out a piece of crumb cake with my 3/4″ circle punch and attached it to the card with a worn down glue dot. (I rubbed and rubbed the glue down with my fingers to make it removeable.)

I sponged Mango Melody and Pool Party and Crumb Cake, lightly, all over the background. To give a sunset, a skyline and a dessert.

When I was happy with the coloring, I removed the crumb cake circle and ta-da there was my sun.

Next, I stamped the Meerkats in Momemto Black and I took my basic black stampin’ write marker and colored them in black. This gives the silhouette affect. Once I was happy with everything I just stamped my sentiment next to it in Momento Black.

My Card Layout ~ Measurements

I started with a piece of Sahara Sand cardstock cut in the hamburger fold, measuring 5.5″ x 8.5″ and scored down the middle at 4.25″. I kept the inside simple with a piece of Whisper White cardstock measuring 4″ x 5.25″, and left blank for writing.

Next, I used Soft Sea Foam cardstock measuring 5″ x 3.75″ that I ran through my personal die cutting machine with the Basket Weave 3D Embossing Folder to create some texture. I adhered that directly to the Sahara Sand card base with snail.

This card is loaded in texture!

I decided next to add some 5/8″ Burlap Ribbon. This loose-weave ribbon is perfect for any ribbon lover. Tie it, loop it, wrap it, cut it, we have you covered with this really fun feeling ribbon. The perfect embelishment for this card. I lobbed a piece off and adhered it with tear-n-tape.

Finally, I felt ready to add my scene. I mounted the Whisper White scene to a piece of Burmuda Bay cardstock (just a hair bigger on each side) and then added it to the card with dimensionals.

What an adorable card!

Thanks so much for stopping by. Remember only TWO more days of Sale-A-Bration. Don’t miss out.

Now, about those cute boots!

So Paper Pumpkin turned 7 in March and they added a additional FREE stamp set in with the kit and it has the cutest muk boots ever!!! So, I used those in my card.

My Card Layout

I started with a Balmy Blue cardbase cut in the hamburger style fold measuring 5.5″ x 8.5″ and scored down the middle at 4.25″. I folded and burnished the score line and then I cut an additional 3″ off the front, leaving it with a 1-1/4″ front piece. I then took the piece I had cut off and moved it sideways to create my side close.

Next, I adhered a piece of Whisper white to the inside measuring 4″ x 5.25″. It ends up covering most of the side panel and it creates a clean look.

I then added the vellum to the front piece and the ribbons I tucked into both sides. If you watch my LIVE on Facebook you will see how and where I added the ribbon closure. I used our gorgeous denim ribbon from our annual catalog.

I added the circle sandwich and the oval sandwich and did my stamping in Night of Navy. The sentiment “thinking of you’ comes from the Beautiful Moments stamp set in our mini catalog.

I think this fun fold card turned out lovely! I hope you’ve enjoyed this project and those boots! (Lol)

Remember, you can earn the vellum FREE for another FOUR DAYS or until it sells out! Get yours NOW before it’s too late.

I will see you again soon!

My Card Layout ~ Measurements

I started with a piece of Mint Macaron cardstock measuring 4.25″ x 5.5″ and a piece of Petal Pink cardstock measuring 4″ x 5.5″.

I, then, cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock in the hotdog style fold measuring 3.75″ x 11″ and scored down the middle at 5.5″.

Next, I adhered the back side of the Whisper White to the Mint Macaron base and I adhered the Petal Pink mat to the inside of the front piece of Whisper White.

I then took my Best Dressed dsp of choice and cut it to just under 5.25″ x 3.75″ and adhered it to the Whisper White.

For the focal point center, I took a piece of Mint Macaron measuring 1.75″ x 4.25″ and adhered it to the DSP a little below the 1/2 way mark. I embossed a piece of Whisper White in the Coastal Weave 3D embossing folder and attached it to the mint macaron. It measured 1.5″ x 4.25″.

Finishing The Card

To finish off the card, I cut a huge scallop oval in Mint Macaron. I also stamped the huge birthday cake onto Whisper White and colored it with my Stampin’ Blends. I then, fussy cut it out. I adhered it flat to the scallop oval. I also stamped in momento black the ‘happy birthday’ and fussy cut it out.

I left the inside blank for writing!

It is a beautiful birthday card. I loved how it turned out. This stamp set will get used over and over again and is total worth the investment.

Remember, you can earn it FREE for another FIVE DAYS. Get yours NOW before it’s too late.
