Happy Birthday Gorgeous!

Hi everyone!

I am back today with another card using the Happy Birthday Gorgeous Bundle from the 2017-2018 Annual Catalog.

The florals in this stamp set are amazing! I knew that I wanted to create a variety of pink flowers and that's just what I did!
 
You know when I think of pinks that I also think of Night of Navy. The two colors pair so well together and I knew that I wanted navy in this card somewhere. I decided to make a card base and top layer using our Night of Navy card stock.
 
I stamped the flowers using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink on to Blushing Bride, Flirty Flamingo and Melon Mambo card stock and used my paper snips to cut them out. 
I use the Happy Birthday Thinlit die to cut a piece of our Silver Glimmer Paper. I also cut 4 sentiments from Whisper White to add extra dimension behind the silver. I adhered the pieces together with liquid glue and added it to the card layer with liquid glue as well. I adhered the flowers using a mix of liquid glue, regular and mini Stampin' Dimensionals.
For the finishing touches, I added a piece of the Powder Pink Shimmer Ribbon and the Clear Faceted Gems.

I think it turned out gorgeous. Let me know what you think in the comments. Be sure to check out my July Specials and the video below!  Thank you so much for crafting with me today!

Rainbow Birthday

Hi guys!
 
 
Welcome to my newest card series using the Happy Birthday Gorgeous Bundle from the 2017-2018 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog!
 
One question I get asked frequently is where do I find my inspiration. My answer is everywhere. Sometimes it's from a quilt, fabric, color palette or even other crafty mavens!  Today's card was inspired by Amy R from Prairie Paper and Ink. She created a card very similar to this one using supplies from a different crafting company. Let me talk you throw what I did!
 

 
For this card, I started with a white card base. You guys know when I create a white card base I always use our Thick Whisper White card stock. It's super strong and it's my favorite weight for card bases.

I used the Happy Birthday thinlit to cut out the sentiment from a piece of Whisper White. I used the Stampin' Write Markers in the colors Real Red, Melon Mambo, Tangerine Tango, Daffodil Delight, Old Olive, Tempting Turquoise and Elegant Eggplant.  To help the colors blend, I used a Clear Wink of Stella pen that I had filled with water once the liquid ran out. Our markers and ink pads react beautifully with water! Using the Wink of Stella provided a bit of sparkle!

I punched the balloons using the Balloon Bouquet punch and adhered them using snail. I adhered the sentiment using liquid glue and added our Brights Enamel Shapes.

This is probably my most favorite card ever....well for right now at least :) Make sure to give credit where credit is due if you CASE a card from another crafter!

Thanks so much for joining me today!  Take a peek at my July Specials Below!

Quirky Critters Narwhal Birthday

Hi everyone!

Oh my word, I had such a fun week using the Quirky Critters stamp set from the 2017-2018 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog! I had so much fun crafting with this set!

I really wanted to showcase the narwhal with a water scene. Hopefully, I did the little guy justice!

I started this card with a Soft Sky card base. I used a piece of Pacific Point for the layer under the "waves."

I used the Swirly Scribbles thinlits to cut the sun out of Daffodil Delight and the waves out of Marina Mist.

I brought in the Up and Away framelits to cut out the clouds. For the biggest cloud, I pulled out my Tree Builder punch! I wanted to add in a punch of read to complete the primary colors! I pulled in the sentiment from the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set and colored the main image using a bit of gray and a pop of Real Red.

It's a completely different type of card for me, but I think it turned out fun and cheerful. What do you think?

Thanks so much for crafting with me!  Check out my July Specials down below!
