Happy Birthday Gorgeous Bundle for Happy Inkin’ Thursday

Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop

The Happy Birthday Gorgeous Bundle from the 2017 Annual Catalog has really been a favorite of mine.  So, I pulled it out again for the card I am sharing with you today.

And here is the color challenge:

Happy Inkin thursday color challenge-Happy Birthday Gorgeous bundle

I have to be honest with you, I really struggled with these colors this week, even though Stampin’ Up! has provided Designer Series Paper to match our challenge!  I tend to go for more bold colors in my projects!  

I started by adhering a panel of Vellum to the Soft Sky Bundle of Love Specialty Designer Series Paper with a little liquid glue in the center of the panel.  I knew it would be covered by my other elements and the glue would not show!  Then I adhered that panel to a panel of Soft Sky card stock with liquid glue.

Next, I punched a strip of Blushing Bride and one of the Fabulous Foil DSP with my Scalloped Tag Topper Punch and adhered them in the center with a little liquid glue.  Once again, I knew the glue would not show.  I wrapped a length of Gold 3/8″ Metallic-Edge Ribbon around the Soft Sky panel and through the tag and tied a bow, securing it to the back with a little tape and popped it onto my Very Vanilla Thick card stock base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The stamping came next, first with the sentiment from the Happy Birthday Gorgeous Bundle in VersaMark ink, embossed with Gold Emboss Powder and heat embossed.  The sentiment was die cut with an oval from the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies and matted to a little larger Gold Foil scalloped oval from the Layering Ovals Framelits Dies.  The flower images from Happy Birthday Gorgeous were stamped in Blushing Bride and Soft Sky and the leaves in Lemon Lime Twist.  All were fussy cut with my Paper Snips, then added with liquid glue and dimensionals.  A banner was created using a Blushing Bride pattern from the Bundle of Love DSP and my Banner Triple Punch.  The banner was adhered to the sentiment oval and then popped onto the front of the card with dimensionals.  Three enamel shapes finished off the front.

I wanted you to see the inside closely, so I turned it sideways!  I used the Happy Birthday Thinlets, which are part of the Happy Birthday Bundle, to die cut a Blushing Bride and Gold Foil sentiment.  I offset them slightly so that the Blushing Bride showed a little and glued them carefully with small dots of liquid glue.  I waited just a little and adhered them so that the glue would not smash and seep out because it dries shiny and doesn’t look nice on your finished project!  More of my fussy cut flowers and a strip of the same DSP used in my banner were added to the Very Vanilla inside panel before gluing it to my card base.  Enjoy!

A complete list of stamping supplies and card stock cuts are at the end of my post.

Stampin’ Up! Petal Garden for Happy Inkin’ Thursday

Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop

Time for another sketch challenge, and I took advantage of the beautiful Petal Garden Designer Series paper by Stampin’ Up! to create my card for today.  

Stampin' Up! Petal Garden-Cardiology by Jari

 

And, here is our sketch:

Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop 

I think this Petal Garden Designer Series Paper is just perfect for our sketch this week.  Beautiful results with very little work!  A panel of Rich Razzleberry card stock and the Petal Garden DSP were adhered at an angle and then popped onto the Pool Party card stock base with some Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin' Up! Petal Garden-Cardiology by Jari

The sentiment is from the Birthday Blooms stamp set and was stamped in VersaMark ink and heat embossed with Gold Emboss powder.  I used the die from the Lovely Laurels Thinlets to create the label.  The Sweet Sugarplum banner was punched on one end with the Banner Triple Punch.  I cut a length of the Old Olive 1/8″ Sheer Ribbon and wound it in an S pattern, secured it with some Glue Dots and popped the label over it with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  On to the inside panel.  

Stampin' Up! Petal Garden-Cardiology by Jari

The large rose image stamp from the Birthday Blooms stamp set resembles the rose buds on the front of the card, so I decided to use a part of it for the lower corner.  I used the ink to rubber method, where I used Stampin’ Write Markers to color the stamp, then huffed on it a few times to create some more moisture and stamped.  More of the Old Olive ribbon was adhered with little dabs of Liquid Multipurpose Glue and finally, an inside sentiment was added.  It is also found in the Birthday Blooms set.  

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

Paisley Birthday for the Happy Stampers Blog Hop

Happy Stampers Blog Hop

 

Hi Stampers, it’s a sketch challenge this week, and I have created a Paisley Birthday card using Paisleys & Posies from Stampin’ Up! 

 

Here is our sketch challenge :

Paisley Birthday sketch

 

Stampin’ Up! Paisley Birthday from Paisleys & Posies stamp set:

 

Paisley Birthday

 

As beautiful as this Petals & Paisleys Spectialty DSP is, it is difficult to photograph!  (At least for me)  The copper and navy really make a statement together, don’t they?  

 

Paisley Birthday

 

The Petals & Paisleys DSP was adhered to a panel of Copper Foil with glue, then popped onto the Night of Navy card stock base with dimensionals.  Using some Versa Mark ink, I stamped two of the paisley images from Paisleys & Posies onto a scrap of Night of Navy card stock.  Then, I sprinkled them with Copper Emboss powder and heat embossed them. Once cooled, I die cut them with the matching Paisley Framelits Dies.  

Paisley Birthday

I pulled out the leaf looking die from the Paisley Framelits and die cut one from the Copper Foil Sheets. Next,  I stamped Happy Birthday from Sunshine Sayings in Versa Mark ink onto a scrap of Night of Navy card stock and also heat embossed it with Copper Emboss powder.  It was cut out with a small Layering Oval Die and glued onto a Copper Foil label I punched with my Deco Label punch. The label and die cuts were popped onto the front with dimensionals.

 

 

Paisley Birthday

 

I used the Celebrate You sentiment from Suite Sayings and stamped it in Night of Navy ink onto a panel of Very Vanilla card stock.  Two strips of the Petals & Paisley Specialty DSP were added to the top and bottom of the sentiment panel.

 

Paisley Birthday

 

To  complete my Paisley Birthday card, I stamped the floral image onto a Very Vanilla medium envelope in Night of Navy ink.  

Card stock cuts in inches and products used in creating my card are at the end of the post.
