Irresistible Birthday

2015_03_23IMG_6998 For todays card I used a classic layout featuring 2 patterned papers from 2 different DSP collections in the Stampin Up Sale-a-bration catalog.  The upper layer is from the Best Year Ever DSP #138633 and the bottom layer is from the yummy Irresistibly  Yours #138635 DSP paper collection.  What makes this card so fun is the Irresistibly Yours paper is a white paper with glossy white pattern that is revealed with a coloring technique-sponging,brayering, spritzing or coloring with Stampin Up Blendabilities.  I used the brayer with Crushed Curry ink and the white dots really popped out.

I separated the 2 DSP papers with a piece of satin pool party ribbon.  The happy sentiment is cut with the Hello You Thinlits and the coordinating Crazy About You #138859 stamp set.  The Hello You and the Crazy About You Stampset are a Bundle and Save item when purchased together (wood #139324, clear #139325 and Photopolymer #138873) you can save 15%.

Bright and Eclectic birthday

2015_03_22IMG_6991 I made today’s card using the Kinda Eclectic stamp set #135350 and some bright Stampin Up inks.  I added a punched circle center and a Starburst Sayings #133185 stampset and coordinating Starburst Framelit #132967. I added a trio of coordinating banners punched from the Banners Punch #133519 and the sentiment is from the Banner Banter #134060 stamp set to create this simple, bright and fun birthday card.

2015_03_19IMG_6961 Happy Birthday to me! I share my birthday with a lot of people that I know including my nephew, Sean and my former neighbor/ friend, Melinda.  My birthday is also the day that my baby sister, Blair got married. So just like today’s card says…. it is the Best Day Ever. This card is a direct case from page 3 of the Stampin Up Sale-a-Bration and features the Best Day Ever Stamp set.

2015_03_19IMG_6963For fun I used the Best Day Ever dotted image to make a coordinated envelope.

Birthday Shaker

2015_03_18IMG_7028 For today’s birthday card, I was inspired by the card on page 4 of the Stampin Up Occasions catalog but I modified it to fit my birthday month theme.  I used a clear transparency, a piece of whisper white cardstock to create a pocket to add the multi color stars punched using the Stampin Up Confetti Stars punch #135861.  I sealed the pocket using the Stacked with Love Washi Tape #137789.  To create the focal image I used the free Big Day Stamp set from the Stampin Up Sale-a-bration catalog. I colored it with the Stampin Up Blendabilities and cut it out with the Circles Framelits #130911. I sandwiched a piece of Black and White 7/8″ Chevron Ribbon #130010 between the Stamped circle and the Black Starburst #132967 mat.  I attached that to the transparency shaker and then added the shaker to a red card front.  Very cute and fun!

Lucky Day

2015_03_17IMG_7010 Happy St. Patrick’s Day. I absolutely love all things St. Patrick’s Day, including Shamrock Shakes! I made this super clean and simple design (not as simple as it looks) for my St. Patricks Day cards this year.  The Shamrock is made using the Heart Framelits #125599 from the Stampin Up annual catalog.  For each shamrock, I had to run it through the big shot 4 times.  I created a window effect on the main panel and the green layer beneath is revealed. I then added a layer of textured hearts punched with the heart from the Itty Bitty Accents punch pack #133787.  I hand drew a stem and added the sentiment from the Teeny Tiny Wishes  #128748.

All wrapped up

2015_03_16DSCI0799For today’s birthday post, I am featuring Cammie’s beautifully wrapped packages using the now retired Stampin Up gift wrap. The wrapping paper was available in the Christmas catalog and is versatile enough to use for everyday.  Cammie used Stampin Up fabric cut into strips to make a spectacular bow for package #1.  For Package #2 Cammie used the Stampin Up gift wrap but then stamped the birthday greeting using Stampin Up alphabet stamps and punched them out with a circle punch.  As with all Cammie’s packages the presentation is so spectacular that you don’t want to open the gift!2015_03_16DSCI0801

You can make it

2015_03_15IMG_6966 Artistic inspiration is around us everywhere but for todays card I used the obvious source- Stampin Up catalogs, specifically the sample on pg 12 of the Sale-a-bration catalog and decided to CASE the card sample using the free Big Day #139112 stamp set.  I chose to step the card up a bit by adding more layers and more colors. I used a piece of the all new Stampin Up Birthday Bash DSP #137783 from the Stampin Up occasions catalog and pulled my color choices from there. I randomly stamped the candles for the 3rd layer and then added a banner cut from the Mini Treat Bag Thinlit #137547 and another banner hand cut from a piece of 3/8″ satin stitched ribbon.  The main focal panel features the Big Day stamp set.  The celebrate banner was stamped on Crushed Curry cardstock and then cut out and adhered to the main panel.

The Big Day stamp set is one of the many free items that is available only during Sale-a-bration.  To see the other free items check out the Sale-a-bration catalog or the newly added SAB item supplement list from now through March 31st.
