Zoo Babies – Congratulations

The Zoo Babies stamp set is perfect to use when creating baby cards and gift packaging.  For this card I stamped the Giraffe, Monkey and Toucan images on Very Vanilla cardstock. The stamped images were then cut out with the Window Frames framelits and layered on a layer piece of So Saffron cardstock.  I paper pierced the outer Window framelit with the coordinating Festive – paper piercing pack.  I added Crushed Curry Chevron ribbon around the bottom of the card.  The button was then tied onto the ribbon with Whisper White Baker’s Twine.

For this card I used the See Ya Later Alligator image and combined it with the Alligator image from the Zoo Babies stamp set.  The See Ya Later Alligator image was stamped on Whisper White cardstock and punched out with the new Scalloped Tag Topper punch.  I added a piece of Gumball Green ribbon to the tag center.  I then randomly stamped the Alligator image from the Zoo Babies stamp set on a Whisper White background and then ran the stamped cardstock through the new Decorative Dots embossing folder.  The dots give the appearance of bumpy Alligator skin.  To finish the card I layered the stamped images onto a Daffodil Delight layer and a Gumball Green card base.

Wetlands Goose meets Retro Fresh DSP

I am enjoying the new Retro Fresh Designer Series Paper.  This paper has some great designs and the colors are beautiful.  This package of designer series papers includes the following color combinations:  Baked Brown Sugar, Coastal Cabana, So Saffron, Tangerine Tango and Very Vanilla.

For today’s card I used the Canadian Goose image from the “Wetlands” stamp set.  I added color directly to the stamp with Tangerine Tango, Baked Brown Sugar and Basic Black Stampin’ Write Markers and stamped onto a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock.  I then cut the stamped image with the Ovals framelits die and cut a larger oval in Tangerine Tango to layer behind the stamped image.  The card base is Baked Brown Sugar and the layers are Tangerine Tango and So Saffron.

You Make Me Happy – Inlaid Embossing Card

Well hello stamping friends, it has been a while since my last blog post!  I have some great card samples that I will be sharing over the next few weeks.  Stampin’ Up! has introduced wonderful new products in the Spring Occasions Catalog and this year’s Sale-a-Bration products are fabulous.  I absolutely love the new exclusive Sale-a-Bration stamp set “See Ya Later”, which you can earn free with a $50 purchase.

You Make Me Happy - Sale-a-bration Card

You Make Me Happy – Sale-a-bration Card

 

For this card I used the You make me Happy image and combined it with the Inlaid Embossing technique to create the cloudy sky.  To create the inlaid embossed background, you need to layer the punched out cloud shapes on Soft Sky cardstock.  The white and gray clouds were created with the cupcake builder punch.  The sun was created with the 3/4″ circle punch.  Once you have all the shapes punched out, adhere them randomly on the Soft Sky cardstock.  Once the background is complete, place the cardstock on the Decorative Dots Embossing folder (this embossing folder is only available during Sale-a-bration).  The raised dots should be placed under the cardstock that you will be embossing and this will allow for the card-front to be raised and give the effect that the clouds and sun are inlaid in the Soft Sky cardstock.

Stamp the You Make me Happy image in Basic Gray ink on Whisper White cardstock.  Color the sun image with Daffodil Delight using a blender pen. Then cut the image out with the smallest label framelit.  Layer the stamped image on a larger Daffodil Delight label and pierce the cardstock with the Festive Labels piercing mat.  The Soft Sky cardstock is then layered on Daffodil Delight and Pool Party cardstock.

Festive Flurry Gift Card Holder

Need an idea to wrap up your Christmas Gift Cards!  This Festive Flurry Gift card holder is the perfect solution.

To create this gift card holder cut a piece of 4″1/4″ x 11″ piece of Soft Sky Cardstock.  Score at 2″, 7-1/4″ and 7-3/8″.  You will also need to cut an insert piece to hold the gift card.  For this card I used Whisper White and cut it at 3-3/4″ x 6-1/2″ and then scored at 1-3/4″ and 6″.

The Island Indigo layer is 2-3/4″ x 3-3/4″.  The Soft Sky Layer is 2-1/2″ x 3-1/4″.  The Silver Foil Layer is 2-1/4″ -3-1/4″  and is embossed with the Pretty Print Embossing folder.
