Happy Wishes

Hello and welcome to part 5 of this week’s Sale-A-Bration spotlight on stamp sets! Today I created two quick and easy cards with the Happy Wishes stamp set! You can earn this free with a qualifying $100.00 order and if you are looking for a stamp set with lots of saying, this is it! But don’t delay, Sale-A-Bration ends tomorrow, Saturday March 31st!

Happy Day card:

The card base is Berry Burst cardstock, cut at 4 ¼” x 11”, scored at 5 ½”, and the base layer is Berry Burst Foil Frenzy Specialty DSP, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”.

From the Myths & Magic 6” x 6” Glimmer Paper, cut at piece of the iridescent paper 2” x 5 ¼” and punch the end out with the Banner Triple Punch.

On a piece of Whisper White cardstock, stamp the “happy” stamp in Basic Gray Archival ink, color the leaves with Pear Pizzazz Stampin’ Write Marker, and the flowers are colored in Blushing Bride, Berry Burst, and Rich Razzleberry inks. I used the Blushing Bride Stampin’ Write Marker but used a Blender Pen with the Berry Burst and Rich Razzleberry inks since the markers were too dark for me. The “day” sentiment was stamped in Berry Burst ink. This is then cut out with the 2nd largest Lots of Labels Thinlits and I used some Snail on the back to adhere some Silver Metallic Thread.

To put this card together, I adhered the glimmer paper with Fast Fuse to the Foil DSP layer, adhered that to the card base, and adhered the sentiment in the middle with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a piece of Whisper White cardstock, stamp the “best” in Basic Gray Archival ink, color the leaves with Pear Pizzazz Stampin’ Write Marker and color the flowers with a Blender Pen and Tempting Turquoise and Soft Sky inks. The “wishes” sentiment is stamped in Tempting Turquoise ink.

Flowers for you

Hello and welcome to day 3 of this week’s Sale-A-Bration countdown! Today’s card is keeping with the “springtime” feeling with two of the Springtime Foils Specialty DSP sheets and some pops of color! With the 2016-2018 In Colors retiring soon, I wanted incorporate at least one color and Flirty Flamingo was it!

The card base is Flirty Flamingo cardstock, cut at 5 ½” x 8 ½”, scored at 4 ¼”, and the Springtime Foils Specialty DSP is cut at 4” 5 ¼”.

I used Sponge Brayers to color the dotted DSP in Powder Pink, Flirty Flamingo, and Melon Mambo inks. I chose a couple of flowers from the DSP and colored those in Light and Dark Cherry Cobbler, Light and Dark Rich Razzleberry, Light Pumpkin Pie, Light Calypso Coral, and Light and Dark Old Olive Stampin’ blends. The leaves are from the Rose Garden Thinlits in light green from the Myths & Magic Glimmer Paper, which are then adhered behind the flowers. A piece of Vellum Paper is cut out using the largest scalloped framelit from the Layering Circles Framelits, with the flowers then adhered on top. To give the flowers a “dewy look” I added some glitter circle and raindrops from the Glitter & Clear Epoxy Shapes.

To put the card together, I adhered the DSP to the card base and then adhered the flowers and vellum with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The sentiment is from the Happy Wishes stamp set, stamped on Whisper White card stock on Memento ink, then end is punched out using the Banner Triple Punch, and then sponged around the edges in Flirty Flamingo ink with a Stampin’ Sponge.

What do you think? Bright, cheerful, and springtime? This is really a great versatile card that can be used for any occasion by changing the sentiment.

Anniversary Card

This anniversary card is my first project using items from the New Occasions and Sale-a-Bration catalogs and I really like how versatile the Painted with Love Designer Series Paper is.

For this card, I started with Powder Pink cardstock cut at 8 ½” x 5 ½” and scored at 4 ¼” and the piece of Painted with Love DSP is cut at 5 ¼” x 4”. I used two of the layering hearts from the Sweet and Sassy Framelits, the bigger hearts are in Melon Mambo and Rich Razzleberry and the smaller hearts are from the Painted Love DSP. The front sentiment is from the Happy Wishes stamp set, stamped in Melon Mambo on a 1” piece of scrap Whisper White cardstock and the end punched from the Banner Triple Punch. I placed some snail on the back of the sentiment and used that to secure the Gold Metallic Thread, placed a couple of the gold hearts from the Metallic Enamel Shapes, and then used Stampin’ Dimensionals to pop on the front.

The inside sentiment is from the Happy Wishes stamp set, heat embossed in Gold Embossing Powder and the “anniversary” is from the same stamp set, stamped in Melon Mambo. I wanted to give the “happy” a little more pop, so I used Lite Old Olive, Lite Calypso Coral, Dark Pink Pirouette, and Dark Rich Razzleberry for the flowers and leaves. The surrounding flowers are from the Beautiful Peacock stamp set, stamped in Pink Pirouette, Melon Mambo, and Rich Razzleberry.
