Stampin’ Up! Cupcakes & Carousels Happy Birthday

I used the Cupcakes & Carousels Designer Series Paper, Balloon Adventures, and the Stylized Birthday stamps to create the card I’m sharing with you today.  I also threw in some Bermuda Bay Glimmer Paper, and hope you were able to snag it while it was still available for Sale-A-Bration.  But, if you did not get it, Bermuda Bay card stock will be perfectly fine to use in its place.

I’m also playing along with the Stamp Ink Paper Challenge #91, hope you’ll check it out!

Stamp Ink Paper Challenge #91

 

I started with a panel of Cupcakes & Carousels DSP and adhered it to a panel of So Saffron card stock.  Next, I cut another strip from Cupcakes & Carousels and adhered it to some Bermuda Bay Glimmer Paper.  This whole strip was then adhered to the first panel. I cut a Lace Doily in half and centered it so that it would peek out under the sentiment panel and glued it down with some Liquid Glue.

My next step was to stamp the confetti image from Balloon Adventures onto a panel of Very Vanilla card stock.  I did not stamp it full strength, though, it was stamped off once each time before I added it to the Very Vanilla.  Then, I stamped the Stylized Birthday Happy Birthday stamp in Bermuda Bay right over the confetti.  The sentiment panel was cut out with a Layering Squares Framelit and framed with a little larger scalloped Square in the Bermuda Bay Glimmer Paper.

Next, I wrapped a length of Very Vanilla Thick Baker’s Twine around my large panel, added a short piece of Bermuda Bay Sequin Trim and tied a bow.  This panel was popped onto the Bermuda Bay card stock base with Dimensionals. Finally, I added one Rhinestone on top of the letter i, added some Dimensionals and popped the sentiment panel onto the front, too.

The inside of my card was stamped with the Balloon Adventures stamp set in Bermuda Bay on my Very Vanilla card stock.  A thin strip of the Cupcakes & Carousels DSP from the front was added to the bottom.  Quick and easy for the middle of the week!  Hope you like it!  

A complete list of supplies including card stock cuts will be at the end of my post.

Stampin’ Up! Tasty Trucks for the Happy Stampers Blog Hop

Happy Stampers Blog Hop

Happy Thursday, and welcome to another Happy Stampers Blog Hop.  I am sharing a  sneak peek of the Tasty Trucks stamp set available on January 4th.  Tasty Trucks is found in the Sale-a-Bration catalog and is FREE with a $50 purchase from Stampin’ Up! during Sale-a-Bration.  Yippee!!

Tasty Trucks

 

Here is our sketch:

Tasty Trucks

 

First, I stamped the truck image from Tasty Trucks in Basic Black Archival ink onto a panel of Whisper White.  Then, I stamped the tacos in the truck window, also using Basic Black Archival ink.

 

Tasty Trucks

 

The next step was to color in all of the images, so I pulled out some of the new Watercolor Pencils (available on January 4th), a blender pen, and some Stampin’ Write markers.  Once the coloring was completed, I moved on to the sentiment banner.   Isn’t that a cute sentiment?  It was stamped in Basic Black Archival ink on Whisper White and die cut with the smallest banner from the Banners Framelits.  I also cut out a Pumpkin Pie and Emerald Envy banner to stack with the sentiment banner.

 

Tasty Trucks

My Whisper White banner looked too stark, so I fussy cut out a pepper and Mexican Sombrero from the Festive Birthday Designer Series Paper and adhered them to the end with some liquid glue.  The front layers are Whisper White for the base, Emerald Envy and Festive Birthday DSP.  Then, Pumpkin Pie and more Festive Birthday, and finally, more Emerald Envy and the Whisper White art panel.  

 

Tasty Trucks

I used the Stylized Birthday stamp for the inside sentiment, stamping in Emerald Envy.  The strip at the bottom is another coordinating piece of the Festive Birthday DSP.

Card stock cuts in inches and products used to to create this card are at the end of the post.  


 

Now, I hope you’ll hop on over to Kristi’s blog to see her wonderful creation for today!

Let’s Celebrate! for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

Let's Celebrate

Thanks for joining in on our blog hop for this month!  We have a Celebrate theme, so Let’s Celebrate!  My share is a decorated gift box and matching card using the Here’s To Cheers Stamp set and Cheerful Tags Framelits Dies from Stampin’ Up! 

Let's Celebrate

 

Have you needed a gift box and did not have just the right one, or gone to the store to purchase a gift and the store is out of gift boxes?  Well, that happened to me recently, and that is what inspired me to make my own gift box.  That’s when Stampin’ Up! came to the rescue.  I saw this wonderful tutorial by Donna from Stampin’ Up! on creating your own gift packaging.  I will not write out the steps, you can watch it for yourself right HERE.  Wonderful instructions!

Here are photos of the box un-decorated:

Let's Celebrate

 

Let's Celebrate

 

I used the Here’s To Cheers Stamp set to stamp the sentiment in Sweet Sugarplum (this is beginning to be one of my favorite colors!) My Layering Circles Framelits Dies were used to cut out a circle around the sentiment and frame it with a Sweet Sugarplum scalloped circle.  Next, I die cut the Soft Sky tag from the Cheerful Tags Framelits Dies, snipping off the portion normally used to create a bottle tag.  I also used some Silver Foil to die cut the beautiful cut work that is on the tag and adhered it with glue. Finally,  I ran a length of the Sweet Sugarplum 3/8″ Glitter Ribbon through the tag and around the box and adhered it with some Tear & Tape Adhesive.  The bow was added to the other ribbon with glue dots.
Let's Celebrate

 

I know the box is pretty all by itself, but I really wanted to add a card, so I duplicated the tag and added a little more flair.

Let's Celebrate

 

For the backdrop on my whisper White Notecard, I stamped the starry image from Star of Light in Soft Sky ink, adding a few extra star images around.  The ribbon was attached with Tear & Tape, then I layered the decorated tag, a Silver Foil doily and the sentiment circles with dimensionals.  

And here is the inside of the Let’s Celebrate card:

Let's Celebrate

I stamped the star images from Star of Light in Soft Sky and the Stylized Birthday stamp in Sweet Sugarplum. 

A list of card stock cuts and products used in my card and box will be at the end of the post.

Stampin’ Up! Stylized Birthday for Sunday Stamps

I’m sharing a birthday card today that was created with the Stylized Birthday stamp and a peek of another new stamp, Dragonfly Dreams, available January 4, 2017! 

 

stylized birthday

 

My card design was inspired by Sunday Stamps SSC140.  I hope you will check out all of the other cards posted there and play along, too!   

SSC140

 

I started by stamping the Stylized Birthday, Happy Birthday stamp in Soft Sky onto a panel of Very Vanilla card stock. Then, I die cut the panel with a Layering Square Framelits Die, and framed it with the larger scalloped Square Framelits Die, using Blushing Bride card stock.  I added a Sweet Sugarplum butterfly that was die cut with the Butterfly Framelits dies. Some Rhinestone Basic Jewels were added for interest on the butterfly center and on the corner of the panel.

 

stylized birthday

 

Are you wondering about that DSP panel with the butterflies?  It is from the new Falling In Love Suite available on January 4th, too!  I have it layered with Crumb Cake card stock.  The long center panel is also from the Falling In Love DSP pack.  I used some of the Very Vanilla 1/2″ Lace Trim on either side of it, and adhered it to the DSP panel with liquid glue.

 

stylized birthday

Dimensionals were added to the sentiment panel and also the DSP panel before popping them onto the Blushing Bride card stock base.  

 

stylized birthday

The sentiment is from the new Dragonfly Dreams stamp set (available January 4th) and was stamped in Soft Sky onto the Very Vanilla panel.  I added two more of the same butterfly shapes, using Sweet Sugarplum and Blushing Bride card stock.  The sides of the panel were trimmed with narrow pieces of the Falling In Love DSP used on the front of my card.
