Stampin' Up! Amazing Phrasing ~ Sketch Saturday


This fun birthday card was inspired by Sketch Saturday's Sketch Challenge 707 and features Stampin' Up!'s Amazing Phrasing and This Birthday Piggy stamp sets.  

Card Base ~ Daffodil Delight Cardstock ~ 8-1/2" x 5-1/2", score at 4-1/4"
Layer 1 ~ Balmy Blue Cardstock ~ 2" x 5-1/2"
Layer 2~ Basic White Cardstock ~ 2" x 2"
Scraps of Basic White Cardstock & a scrap of Balmy Blue Cardstock

  • Adhere the Balmy Blue Cardstock to the top of the card base.  Then, place the front of the card base in the Painted Textures 3D Embossing Folder and run through the Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine.  (You have to turn the embossing folder sideways, which is NOT recommended by Stampin' Up!)
  • Stamp the piggy, cake & balloon on a scrap of basic white cardstock with Tuxedo Black Memento ink.  Color with Stampin' Blends.  (also stamp an extra balloon)
  • Fussy cut around the piggy and balloon (plus the extra balloon) leaving a bit of a white border
  • Tightly fussy cut around the cake.  Then, trace around the edge of the cake with a Black Stampin' Write Marker (using the side of the brush tip)
  • Stamp the sentiments on the scraps of cardstock with Memento ink.  (I used my Stamparatus so I could stamp 'amazing' several times to make sure it was nice and dark)
  • Fussy cut around each word.
  • Wrap Bakers twine around the card front twice, where the two cardstocks meet.  Tie a bow around the twine, near the center. 
  • Use Stampin' Dimensionals to attach the square piece of cardstock, as shown. 
  • Adhere the piggy with Liquid Glue and the balloon that is attached to the piggy with a Stampin' Dimensional
  • Place a dab of Liquid Glue behind the extra balloon string and a Mini Stampin' Dimensional behind the balloon before adding it to the square. 
  • Adhere the cake with Liquid Glue.
  • Use Mini Stampin' Dimensionals (cut in half where necessary) to attach the words to the bottom of the card front.
