Mosaic Madness… Hello Card – Stampin’ Up!

Sometimes when life gets busy you just need a super quick card!  Today’s project fits that bill just perfectly with two versions of an everyday card to say “Hello” featuring the Mosaic Madness and Four  You stamp sets from Stampin’ Up!

Mosaic Madness (7 of 11)

I started my card today with a Whisper White card base, which I dry embossed using the Modern Mosaic Textured Impresssions Embossing Folder.  Next, I added a strip of Gumball Green designer series paper from the Birthday Basics Pack.  That set has so many cute patterns in it!  If you don’t have it in your collection, you should grab some before it is gone.  The Birthday Basics set is one that is available only while supplies last through June 4th.

Mosaic Madness (2 of 11)

Next, I stamped one of the designs from the Mosaic Madness stamp set onto Whisper White card stock using my Pistachio Pudding Classic Stampin’ Pad.  I punched out the stamped images using the Mosaic Punch.  (The Mosaic Madness stamp set and Mosaic Punch are available as a bundle for a 15% discount through June 4th.)  Then I adhered the punched pieces to the front of my card using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Mosaic Madness (8 of 11)

For my sentiment, I chose the “Hello” greeting from the Four You stamp set.  I stamped it on Whisper White card stock using Versamark Ink and then heat embossed it with Black Stampin’ Emboss Powder and my Heat Tool.  I punched out my sentiment using the Decorative Label Punch.  Then I created a partial mat for my greeting by punching the same shape in Gumball Green DSP.  I cut the green punch in half lengthwise, and then cut out the pointed part on the sides (click here to see a visual).

To finish off the inside of my card, I stamped one of the border stamps from Mosaic Madness in Pistachio Pudding ink along the top and bottom of the inside of my card.

Hello, Lovely Thank You Card – Stampin’ Up!

Today’s project is a Thank You card featuring the Hello, Lovely stamp set, Square Lattice Embossing Folder, and Birthday Basics Designer Series Paper from Stampin’ Up!  Each of these items are slated to retire on June 4th and are available only while supplies last.

Hello Lovely (1 of 8)

I started my card today with a Basic Black card base and added a panel of Raspberry Ripple designer series paper from the Birthday Basics Pack.  This design coordinated perfectly with the geometric designs from the Hello, Lovely stamp set.

Hello Lovely (3 of 8)

Next, I dry embossed a panel of Very Vanilla card stock using the Square Lattice embossing folder and my Big Shot.  I mounted that panel onto a panel of Basic Black.  Then I stamped the geometric designs from Hello, Lovely onto Very Vanilla card stock using my Rose Red Classic Stampin’ Pad.  I punched out the stamped images using the 1″ square punch and mounted them on Basic Black card stock mats.  I adhered the stamped images to the embossed panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Hello Lovely (6 of 8)

I used the cute  Basic Black Chevron Ribbon to tie a bow around my panel.  I just love the design of that ribbon.  Finally, I stamped the “Thank You” greeting from the Hello, Lovely stamp set onto Very Vanilla card stock.  I cut it out using my paper snips and adhered it to the front of the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Hello Lovely (7 of 8)

To finish off the inside of my card, I stamped the square design four times along the short side of a Very Vanilla panel using Rose Red ink.  I used my stamp-a-ma-jig to help with placement.

Hello Lovely (8 of 8)

I am very pleased with how this card turned out.  I love the color combination and the use of texture.  Hopefully, you have enjoyed it too.  If so, I hope you will pin this project to Pinterest for me.  If you scroll to the bottom of this post, you will find a complete list of supplies used to make today’s project, including the dimensions for the card stock cuts.  Below the supply list, you will find a “pin it” button.  I would appreciate your help in spreading the word about my work.  Also, don’t forget to leave me a comment for your chance to win a free stamp set from Sale-a-bration!

Create a Cupcake Birthday (4 of 13)

I love the Birthday Basics Designer Series Paper Pack.  It has so many cute patterns that make creating cheerful birthday cards a breeze.  And, Stampin’ Up! makes coordinating colors so easy because they include the colors that were used in the design right on the package!

Create a Cupcake Birthday (8 of 13)

The Create a Cupcake stamp set goes just perfectly with the Birthday Basics DSP too!  I love the cute sentiments and the flexibility of this set.  I selected a Very Vanilla background for my card, to make my punched focal point pop, but I wanted to add some interest to the background, so I used the Stripes Textured Impressions Embossing Folder to dry emboss the panel.  I like the fact that the striped design adds a simple detail that really finishes off the whole card without drawing attention away from the punch art.

Create a Cupcake Birthday (5 of 13)

I decided to use the cute quotes from the Create a Cupcake stamp set to finish off the inside of my cards.

Life is Wonderful with Perfect Pennants and Mixed Bunch from Stampin’ Up!

My card today was created using the Perfect Pennants, Mixed Bunch, and Flower Shop stamp sets from Stampin’ Up!  It also features the Modern Mosaic and Decorative Dots (Sale-a-bration item) embossing folders.  The Decorative Dots embossing folder is one of my favorite items available FREE with a $50 purchase through March 31st!  There are just so many things you can create with that cute design.  So, if you love this card and want to get some of the supplies, now is a great time.  For your convenience, I have hyperlinked the names of products to my online store… just click and you’ll be on your way to creating this beautiful card too!

Perfect Pennants Mixed Bunch3

I started my creation by cutting panels of Whisper WhiteCoastal Cabana and So Saffron card stock.  Next, I dry embossed the Coastal Cabana and So Saffron panels using the Modern Mosaic and Decorative Dots embossing folders using my Big Shot Die-Cut Machine.  Then, I added some Coastal Cabana Stretch Ruffle Trim to the top of the yellow panel with SNAIL adhesive.  I used the Adorning Accents Edgelits to cut a scalloped strip of Whisper White card stock, and I used a small hole punch to create a hole at each scallop to give my trim an eyelet lace effect.  Finally, I  adhered it to the bottom of the Coastal Cabana panel and layered all of my panels on a  Basic Gray card base.

Perfect Pennants Mixed Bunch12

Once the foundation for my card was finished, it was time to embellish it with a lovely flower and my card greeting.  I chose the “Life doesn’t have to be perfect to be wonderful” sentiment from the Perfect Pennants stamp set (wood mount and clear mount) for my greeting.  I love this one because it can be used for many different occasions.  I stamped it on Whisper White card stock using the Basic Gray Classic Stampin’ Padthen I cut it out using the 3rd smallest Banner Framelits Die.   (Remember, the Perfect Pennants stamp set and Banner Framelits Dies can be purchased together as a bundle for 15% off the regular price. Available in wood mount or clear mount bundles.)

Perfect Pennants Mixed Bunch17

After stamping the greeting, I used a sponge dauber to apply ink to the edges of my banner for a little added contrast.  I attached a brad from the Vintage Trinkets accents and elements  set to the top of the banner and stuck it to the front of my card using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I stamped two round medallions using my  Coastal Cabana Classic Stampin’ Pad and inked around the edges after I cut them out.  Then I attached one of them to the bottom of the banner using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I set the other one aside to use on the inside of my card later.

Perfect Pennants Mixed Bunch5

For my flower, I used my So Saffron Classic Stampin’ Pad to stamp a large flower using the Mixed Bunch stamp set (wood mount and clear mount) and a small flower using the Flower Shop stamp set (wood mount and clear mount).  Then I punched out the flowers using the Blossom Punch and the Pansy Punch.  (The Flower Shop stamp set and Pansy Punch are available as a bundle for 15% discount off the regular price.  Available in  wood mount and clear mount).

The leaves of the flower were stamped using the leaf stamp from the  Secret Garden stamp set (wood mount and clear mount) and my Pear Pizzazz Classic Stampin’ Pad.  I inked up my leaf stamp and then stamped it twice without re-inking between stamps.  This gave my design some added dimension and contrast.  Then I used the Secret Garden Framelits Dies to cut out the leaf images.

Perfect Pennants Mixed Bunch12

Finally, I attached my leaves with Glue Dots and layered my flowers using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  The center of the flower was finished by adding a large pearl from the Basic Pearls Jewel Accents.

Perfect Pennants Mixed Bunch13

I finished the inside of my card by adding a panel of Whisper White card stock with a strip of So Saffron card stock along the bottom.  I brushed Coastal Cabana ink along the bottom edge of the trim using a sponge dauber to give it some extra contrast.  Then I attached the second medallion I created earlier to the center of the yellow strip using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I hope you have enjoyed my share today.  I certainly enjoyed creating it.  I just love the color combination.  I know that someone special will enjoy receiving it at just the right moment.

A “See Ya Later” Birthday Sale-A-Bration – Stampin’ Up!

Today’s share was created using the See Ya Later stamp set and Decorative Dots (Sale-a-bration items) embossing folder from Stampin’ Up! Both of these items are available FREE with a $50 purchase through March 31st!  I just love this card!  I can’t wait to send it to someone special.

See Ya Later Birthday SAB7

I wish I could take full credit for this cute design, but I actually got the idea from a similar card I saw on Pinterest, created by Selene Kempton.  I changed it up a little bit to make it my own, but I want to be sure to give credit where credit is due.

See Ya Later Birthday SAB9

I started by cutting panels of Coastal Cabana and Pink Pirouette card stock.  Next, I dry embossed the pink panel using the Decorative Dots embossing folder and my Big Shot Die-Cut Machine.

See Ya Later Birthday SAB11

I used the three largest Banner Framelits Dies to cut banners from the Birthday Basics Designer Series Paper.  I wanted my banners to be different lengths, but they were too wide for my project, so I trimmed each of them to be 1-1/4 inches wide. Then I adhered them to the Pink Pirouette panel using SNAIL adhesive.

See Ya Later Birthday SAB12

I wrapped my pink panel with Coastal Cabana Stretch Ruffle Trim and tied it in a knot. Then I adhered the two panels together and placed them on a Whisper White card base using SNAIL.

See Ya Later Birthday SAB8

I used stampin’ write markers (So Saffron, Wild Wasabi, Strawberry Slush, & Coastal Cabana) to color the birthday sentiment from the See Ya Later stamp set.  Then I used the Labels Collection Framelits to cut it out.

Next I used a sponge dauber to color the edges of the sentiment using my Strawberry Slush Classic Stampin’ Pad and adhered the final product to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

See Ya Later Birthday SAB3

Finally, I completed the front of the card by adding three small Basic Rhinestones Jewel Accents in the bottom right hand corner.

See Ya Later Birthday SAB4

I finished the inside of my card by adding a strip of Coastal Cabana card stock along the bottom.  Then I used the banner punch (Sale-a-bration item) to create three small banners using the same Birthday Basics Designer Series Paper which was used on the front of the card.

I hope you have enjoyed my share today.  I certainly enjoyed creating it.  If you would like to place an order and earn the See Ya Later stamp set, Decorative Dots embossing folder, or the banner punch for FREE (Sale-a-bration items), please click here to shop in my online store.
