Hello and thank you for swinging by my blog today!  If you love peaches, this Sweeet as a Peach Bundle is for you!  The You're a Peach Designer Series Paper is perfect to use with these stamps and dies.  The DSP used on this card is actually both sides of one sheet of DSP!

4.  Use Layering Circles Dies to cut out the sentiment (I use these dies All.The.Time)
5.  Tie a Linen Thread bow.

Stampin' Up! Snailed It Birthday Card

 

Hi!  Welcome to my blog!  When I sat down to create today, I knew I wanted to use the fun Snailed It stamps.  Since the coordinating Snail Mail Designer Series Paper has sold out, I decided to see what I could do with some of the current Designer Series Paper.  Isn't this Pattern Play DSP perfect!?  I love these colors with this stamp set and the pattern is sweet!

MEASURMENTS

Pumpkin Pie Card Base ~ 8-1/2" x 5-1/2", scored at 4-1/4"
Pattern Party DSP ~ 4" x 5-1/4" and 1/4" x 5-1/4" (inside)
Bermuda Bay Cardstock ~ 1/2" x 5-1/2"
Granny Apple Green Cardstock ~ 1/2" x 5-1/2"
Poppy Parade Cardstock ~ 1/2" x 3-3/4"
Pumpkin Pie Cardstock ~ 2-1/2" x 2-1/2"
Basic White Cardstock ~ 2-1/2" x 2-1/2" and 4" x 5-1/4" (inside)


1.  Stamp the mushrooms on Basic White CS using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.  Then, stamp 'Happy Birthday' on the Poppy Parade CS.
2.  Punch one end of the Bermuda Bay, Granny Apple Green, and Poppy Parade CS 1/2" strips with the Banners Pick a Punch. 
3.  Use Stampin' Blends to color in the mushrooms. 
4.  Using Layering Circles Dies, cut out the mushrooms.  Then, cut out a Pumpkin Pie circle to layer under it.  
5.  Attach the layers to the Card Base, as shown.  I used Multipurpose Liquid Glue on everything except the back of the Pumpkin Pie circle; for that, I used Stampin' Dimensionals.


Add the DSP strip to the bottom of the 4" Basic White CS.  Then, glue the Basic White CS to the inside of the card.

Stampin' Up! Glimmer Paper Daisy Card

 


HI!  Thank you for visiting my blog today.  This card was inspired by Sketch 425 from Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge Blog.  When I saw this sketch my first thought was to use Stampin' Up!'s Rainbow Glimmer Paper for the diagonal stripes.  This is my first card using this paper and I'm pretty excited about it!


MEASUREMENTS
Basic White Thick Cardstock ~ 4-1/4" x 11", scored at 5-1/2"
Rainbow Glimmer Paper ~ 1/2" x 12" (*3)
Basic White Cardstock ~ 3" x 9", or enough scraps for 2 large daisies and the center of a third diasy


The first step in making this card is to create the diagonal strips.  I used Multipurpose Liquid Glue and Paper Snips to do this part.  I started by adding enough glue to the back of one strip to cover just the area I needed to glue down and attached it to the card base.  Then, I used the scissors to cut off both sides along the edge of the card base (I opened the card and cut from the back of the card front so I could see what I was doing easier).  When I got to the end of the first strip, I set it aside while I attached the 2nd strip.  Then, I took the leftover pieces from the first two strips, matched up the ends and continued the process.  As you can see in the picture below, I only had a few small pieces of these three strips left when I was finished. 


Next, stamp the large daisy twice using Magenta Madness on the Basic White Cardstock.  Then, after cleaning your daisy stamp - stamp the center of the daisy (it's okay if you also stamp a few petals, but you are just going to use the center) using Mango Melody ink.  Use the Daisy Punch to cut out the two Magenta Madness daisies and trim around the Mango Melody daisy center with your Paper Snips.  Glue the daisies together and add the center on top.  


Stamp the sentiment under the bottom strip.  The Stamparatus makes it easy to line your stamp up perfectly.  

Now, glue your daisy to the center of the the glitter strips. Ta-da!  


For the inside, I used the 'Congratulations' stamp from the Peaceful Moments stamp set.  You can do this too, or add another sentiment that you like and have on hand.

Stampin' Up! Sweet Strawberry Birthday Card - Bleaching Technique

 


Hi!  I hope you are having a sweet day!  For today's card, I used Stampin' Up!'s Sweet Strawberry stamp set and the bleaching technique.  This technique is new to me, it's one I learned from watching a Kylie Bertucci YouTube video a couple of week's ago.  It's a pretty simple technique that takes minimum supplies and is fun to do!  

MEASUREMENTS
Granny Apple Green Card Base ~ 8-1/2" x 5-1/2", scored at 4-1/4"
Granny Apple Green Cardstock ~ 4" x 5-1/4"
Basic White Cardstock ~ 2-3/4" x 3-1/2", scraps for the strawberries and stems
and 4" x 5-1/4" (inside)
Pale Papaya Cardstock ~ 1" x 2-3/4"
Pattern Play Designer Series Paper ~ 1/2" x 2-3/4" and 1/2" x 5-1/4" (inside)


1.  Stamp the flowers with leaves all over the 4" piece of Granny Apple Green CS.
2.  Dip a Blender Pen in a small container of bleach and use this to 'color' the flowers.  You will need to continue to dip the Blender Pen in the bleach, as needed.  
(Be sure to label the Blender Pen 'BLEACH' so that you remember which one you used.  You won't be able to use it as a normal Blender Pen again)
3.  Stamp the strawberries using Poppy Parade ink.  Stamp off once before stamping the inside of the strawberries.
4.  Now stamp the stems using Granny Apple Green Ink.  Again, stamp off once before stamping the inside of the stems. 
6.  Use the Strawberry Punch to punch both strawberries and their stems.  Attach the stems to the top of the strawberries with a small amount of Multipurpose Liquid Glue. 
7.  Stamp the sentiment on Pale Papaya CS. Trim above and below the sentiment, if desired.  
8.  Use the Banners Pick-A-Punch to punch both ends of the Pale Papaya CS. 
9.  Glue the Pattern Play DSP strip to the bottom of the 3-1/2" piece of Basic White CS.  Then, glue both to the 4" piece of Granny Apple Green.
10.  Tie a piece of Linen Thread around the Granny Apple Green and Whisper White CS.
11.  Glue the first strawberry to the Basic White CS.  Then, use Stampin' Dimensionals to attach the 2nd strawberry over the 1st and over the Linen Thread. 
12.  Use Stampin' Dimensionals to attach the Granny Apple Green CS to the Granny Apple Green Card Base.  
13.  Add the Pale Papaya Banner to the top of the card with Stampin' Dimensionals. 


For the inside of the card, I added a 1/2" strip of DSP to side of the 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Basic White CS.  Then, I glued that inside the card.

Stampin' Up! Biggest Wish Thank You Card - Blog Hop

 


   Thank you for joining us for our Stampin' Up!® Demonstrator Training Program Monthly Blog Hop!  We are so happy that you could join us today for this blog hop for ideas and creative inspiration.  We are a group of Stampin' Up!® Demonstrators from around the world that are taking part in training that is helping us to build a successful Stampin' Up!® business and reach some goals we have set.  We really appreciate your support.

You may be starting here or have come from another blog - either way you can find the link list at the bottom of this post so that you can see every blog post and idea today.


On Mondays I like to share a masculine card with you because I know those can sometimes be challenging.  This Monday just happens to be Bruno & Kylie's Demonstrator Training Blog Hop, also.  The theme for this blog hop is Thank You Cards.  So, I'm sharing with you the card I will be sending to anyone who places an order this month plus the same card, with a more masculine theme.  

I used the True Love Designer Series Paper for both cards.  In fact, they both use the same sheet of 12" x 12" DSP.  One card uses one side, the other the opposite side.  


MEASUREMENTS
Basic Black Card Base ~ 8-1/2" x 5-1/2", scored at 4-1/4"
Pacific Point/Polished Pink Cardstock ~ 4-1/8" x 5-3/8" and approx. 3" x 1-1/2"
DSP ~ 4" x 5-1/4"
Basic White Cardstock ~ 4" x 5-1/4" (inside)


1.  For the feminine card, use Stampin' Blends to color the floral DSP.
2.  Stamp 'THANKS' using Memento Black ink.
3.  Attach the DSP to the Pacific Point/Polished Pink CS.  Then, tie a ribbon/twine around both the cardstock and DSP.
3.  Attach the CS and DSP to the Card Base. 
4.  Use Versamark to stamp 'thanks' over the black THANKS.  Sprinkle White Embossing Powder over it and set with the Heat Tool.
5.  Use the Painted Labels Die to cut out the sentiment.
6.  Attach the sentiment to the front of the card with Stampin' Dimensionals. 


For the inside of the card, color the floral DSP to match the front.   Then, attach a 1/2" x 5-1/4" strip of matching DSP to the side of the Basic White Cardstock.  Finally, attach both to the inside of the card.

Stampin' Up! Sweet Ice Cream Birthday Card

 

Happy Friday! I have mentioned before that the Ice Cream Corner Designer Series Paper is some of my favorite DSP.  So, you'll understand when I say I'm a little sad that it has already sold out.  Bummer.  I do think that the new 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper will be a good choice for replacing the DSP on this card.  If you want it as close to this card as possible, get the Neutrals so you can use the Old Olive paper.  However, I think it would be fun to try a different color card and DSP, then maybe even change up the other colors.  I would love to see it if you give it a try!

The layout for this card was totally inspired by Sketch Challenge 258 at Sunday Stamps blog.  If you haven't checked out their blog yet, you should.  They have great challenges! 


MEASUREMENTS
Old Olive Card Base ~ 8-1/2" x 5-1/2", scored at 4-1/4"
DSP ~ 3-3/4" x 5:
Melon Mambo Cardstock ~ scrap approx. 1" x 3-1/4"
Basic White Cardstock ~ scraps for the popsicles and 4" x 5-1/4" (inside)


1.  Stamp the popsicle pieces on Basic White CS.  I stamped the popsicle sticks separate from the tops. 
2. Stamp the sentiment in Versamark on Melon Mambo CS.  Cover with White Embossing Powder, then tap off the excess.  Set with the Heat Tool.
3.  Fussy cut around the popsicle pieces and sentiment.  
4.  Glue the popsicle pieces together. 
5.  Attach the layers as shown in the pictures.  The sentiment and top popsicle were attached with Stampin' Dimensionals.  


For the inside of this card, I attached a piece of Basic White Cardstock.  Then, I fussy cut around one of the popsicles on the Designer Series Paper and glued it in the corner.
