It’s a wrap shopping bag

 Continuing with the It’s a Wrap stamp set #123592 from the Stampin Up IBC, I stamped and embossed 3 of the images to get different textures for the shopping bags. I cut them out and adhered 1/8 ” black taffeta ribbon #119261 to them to form the handles.  I punched coordinating hot pink tissue using the postage stamp punch #122344 and added to the shopping bags.  One of the bags has a heart punched from the small heart punch #117193.

THe card base is pretty in pink cardstock embossed with the heart texture plate from the adorning accents texture folders #125601 from the new Stampin Up occasions mini catalog.  I then added a bow using the black 1 1/4 ” striped ribbon and layered the Happiest Birthday wishes from Hostess stamp set #122617 to create a coordinating accent.

The best part of this card you cannot see- it is the inside sentiment and my inspiration for this card- it says… the world got a present the day you were born.  So I created a card with presents to use this stamp set.  This card took a lot of time because of all the detail but I like how it turned out and used it as my second swap for the regional Stampin Up convention.

On the day you were born

I love the sentiment on today’s post using the Happiest Birthday Wishes  hostess stamp set #122617 to create a very simple birthday card.  This card was an very vanilla card front embossed with the my favorite square lattice embossing folder #119976.  I layered a piece of Spice Cake DSP (no longer available) and a eyelet border punched strip #119853 of Spice Cake DSP. The accent piece is stamped on very vanilla and adorned with rhinestones # 119246 and layered on soft suede designer frame embossing folder #123130 that I fussy cut and punched holes to thread the very vanilla velvet ribbon (no longer available) to complete this birthday card.

A sucker for fun

 Another card in Cammie’s Sweets workshop is featured using the Sweets for the Sweet stamp set #122512 and melon mambo ink, cardstock and Mambo DSP.  To create the glittered candy background, Cammie stamped the candy image in versa mark on melon mambo cardstock and then heat embossed the images using the iridescent ice embossing powder.  To create the sucker, she also used iridescent iced  stamped the image and added a piece of gathered plastic treat bag and tied it with a piece of black 1/8 ” taffeta ribbon #119261.  The card base is a piece of mambo polka dot from the brights DSP #117155 and 1/2 inch black scallop dots ribbon #124145.  The card is finished with an accent piece created using the Happiest Birthday Wishes #122617 Hostess set layered on a scallop circle punch #119854.  This card is a wowzer in real life.

First Edition Birthday

For today’s card, I drew my inspiration from the card in the Stampin Up IBC on page 120 but I don’t own the Field of Flowers set (shocking I know) so I substituted another flower that is no longer available but I wanted to showcase the wonderful First Edition DSP #121878 and the Happiest Birthday Wishes Hostess stamp set #122617. I stepped out of my comfort zone with this color combo (soft suede, cajun craze, and peach parfait). The Stampin Up DSP is always always great but this First Edition Specialty paper is double sided and lighter in weight and once the image is stamped on it it takes on a whole new look. I stamped the sentiment on soft suede and then punched it out using the curly label punch #119851 and popped it on top of the cajun craze strip textured with the perfect polka dots textured embossing folder.  Love how it turned out!
