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.

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.)

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.

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.

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.

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.
