Stampin' Up! Ice Cream Thank You Card


Have you seen the Ice Cream Corner Suite Collection from the new January - June 2021 Mini Catalog yet?  (It's on p. 48-49)  I love everything about this collection.  The colors & patterns they chose for the Designer Series Paper are fun and beautiful!  Do you like to combine fonts when crafting?  Because the font combo in the Sweet Ice Cream Stamp Set is spot on!  

The card I am showing you today was inspired by Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge 405.  I'm not sure if it was meant to be a slimline card, but I thought it was perfect for this smaller slimline!   


To create the background behind the popsicle, I die cut Basic White cardstock and Blackberry Bliss cardstock with the same die from Potted Succulents dies.  Then, I cut the Blackberry Bliss piece in half and glued it behind the Basic White piece so it would peek out a little above and below the white.  


I used the confetti dots stamp to decorate the envelope front & flap and the inside of the card.  

MEASUREMENTS

Blackberry Bliss Card Base - 6-1/4"x6-1/2", scored at 3-1/4"
Whisper White - 6"x3"
DSP  - 3/4"x6" & 1-1/4"x6"


I hope you are inspired to be creative today.  Happy Stamping!

Stampin' Up! Hey Birthday Chick Card

Oh my goodness!  I have mentioned before that one of my all time favorite stamp sets is the 'Hey, Chick' bundle.  Well...Stampin' Up! is about to bring back that stamp set (something they almost never do), with a new matching die set.  They ALSO are releasing a die set for the coordinating 'Hey Birthday Chick' stamp set that is in the January - June 2021 Mini Catalog.  As a demonstrator, I got the opportunity to order these early, which I did, as an early birthday present to me!  😉 (Both bundles will be available for purchase February 2nd) 



So of course, when I came across sketch challenge PP525 over at The Paper Players, I immediately grabbed my new Hey Birthday Chick Bundle and made this fun card!


I thought the imperfect circles on the Oh So Ombre Designer Series Paper looked a little like eggs when paired with this set, so was an obvious choice for a background.  The more solid sheet of Oh So Ombre was perfect for the smaller piece of cardstock.  


I don't think I have ever seen a real yellow and blue chicken before, but I thought this was a fun and different way of coloring the chicken.  I think I might make another card like this and change the chicken colors to Smoky Slate and Daffodil Delight and make the balloon Bermuda Bay.  What do you think?  


I love the clear gems in the Flowers for Every Season Gems, and find myself using them a lot.  They were the perfect finishing touch to this card.  

I added another sentiment and the adorable little dancing chicken egg to the inside of the card with a splash of color.  Rarely do I leave the inside of a card blank.  I will also decorate the outside of the envelope before mailing this one off.  


I hope you are inspired to be creative today.  Happy Stamping!

Stampin' Up! Paper Blooms Birthday Card


Today's card was inspired by a card on p. 7 of the new January - June 2021 Mini Catalog. 


I decided to recreate the card on the top left with Paper Blooms DSP from Sale-A-Bration and the Pretty Perennials Bundle from the January - June 2021 Mini Catalog.  I also used a die from the Tasteful Labels Die Set from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog.  


For some reason, I haven't purchased the Rococo Rose Ink Pad.  So, instead of stamping the small flower in Rococo Rose, I used versamark on a piece Rococo Rose Cardstock, then heat embossed Clear Emboss Powder over it.  I love the final result!  

When you are looking for inspiration in your crafting, do you remember to look through Stampin' Up!'s catalogs?  They are always a great way to get those creative juices flowing!  😃  You can download a catalog through the link on the right, or Contact Me here and I will mail one to you.  (Assuming you don't already have a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator and live in the USA)

I hope you are inspired to be creative today.  Happy Stamping!
