Marbled Happy Birthday-Night of Navy and Highland Heather

Blue Marbled
Highland Heather Marbled Background Happy Birthday

Here's another quick and easy Happy Birthday card made using the Marbled Background and Happy Birthday Thinlits Die.

You can see the masculine-themed card I created using the same ingredients, but using Smoky Slate and Basic Black HERE.

For this card, I used Night of Navy paired with Highland Heather, one of the new colors found in the Subtles Collection which will be available in the new Stampin' Up! catalog on June 1.

I'm a purple person through and through, so I had to purchase this new ink pad (new design, easier to open and close!) during the Demonstrator pre-order period.

This card is an easy to create in 5 minutes or less!

And the possibilities are endless.

Here's how:

1.  Stamp Marbled Background stamp on Whisper White card stock using Highland Heather ink.

2. Cut "Happy Birthday" out of Night of Navy card stock using the Big Shot and Happy Birthday Thinlits Die.

3. Attach to card front using Mini Dimensionals to pop it up.

4. Attach card front to Night of Navy card base.

5. Attach dots to complete.

Touches of Texture Blocks
Touches of Texture

Unfortunately, I recently needed a sympathy card. 

Sympathy cards are some of the hardest to make.

I created this clean and simple card using one of my favorite stamp sets, Touches of Texture.

The simple design works for any occasion, including sympathy or thinking of you.

Here's how:

  1. Stamp images from Touches of Texture onto 1 1/2" square blocks of Very Vanilla card stock using Memento Black ink.
  2.  Stamp the "fill in" images for the wings of the bee and dragonfly, the center of the large flower, and the flower buds using Crushed Curry ink.
  3. Attach to 1 5/8" square Basic Black matting.
  4. Attach to Very Vanilla card base using Mini Dimensionals to pop the blocks up.
  5. Stamp greeting of choice using Memento Black ink.  For this card, I used Teeny Tiny Wishes which is retiring on May 31.

Batik Technique



Batik  is a wax resist method of dying fabrics originating in Indonesia.

In stamping,  the batik look can be achieved by using the emboss resist technique called Burned Batik.

It can also be achieved by applying color direct to paper and adding highlighting with white ink.

Both techniques add vibrant colors to any stamping project.

My May Fresh Card Making Tutorial will feature the Burned Batik and Batik Techniques.

You Move Me Interactive Cards

The You Move Me Bundle is retiring!

The bundle includes the stamp set You Move Me (a fluttering butterfly and hummingbird), and the coordinating Move Thinlits Dies.

Here are some projects I've made using this bundle:

Pink Butterfly Card with Insert

Of course, to get the full effect of these cards, you need to see it in action. 

I created a short video showing how the butterfly flutters as you pull the card insert.

It's best to pull the insert out slowly to get the best fluttering effect.

You Move Me stamp set is retiring.

 I combined it with the Emboss Resist Technique to make this colorful, spring-themed card.

Here's how:

  1. To do the Emboss Resist Technique, first, swipe a piece of Glossy White card stock (you can also use regular matte Whisper White card stock) with an Embossing Buddy.  Then, stamp the images from You Move Me using Versamark or Whisper White Craft ink.  For this card, I used Whisper White craft ink. 
  2.  Heat emboss the images using a heat tool and white embossing powder.
  3. With a sponge or brayer, add different colors of ink over the embossed images.  For this card, I sponged on Tempting Turquoise, Melon Mambo, Marina Mist, Elegant Eggplant, Tangerine Tango and Daffodil Delight inks.  Wipe excess ink off using a tissue or paper towel.  The embossed white images will pop!
  4. Attach card front to Elegant Eggplant mat.  Attach to Tempting Turquoise card base.
  5. Stamp greetings onto scrap pieces of Daffodil Delight card stock using Elegant Eggplant ink.  Attach to card front using Mini Dimensionals to pop them up.
  6. Add enamel dots to complete.

Definitely Dahlia Eclipse Card

Definitely Dahlia Eclipse Card
Definitely Dahlia Eclipse Card

Eclipse Cards are all the rage! 

Cut out a shape using punches or dies, then layer the pieces back into the negative space creating dimension. 

It's like working a puzzle!

I decided to create this card using the Eclipse Technique paired with the retiring stamp set Definitely Dahlia.

Here's How:

  1. Ink up the Definitely Dahlia stamp first using Peekaboo Peach ink.  Tap the edges of the stamp using Flirty Flamingo ink.  Stamp on Whisper White card front.  Repeat to fill in the spaces.
  2. Place card front onto the Big Shot using the Magnetic Platform as part of your cutting sandwich.  Place the letters from Large Letters Framelits Die onto the card front.  Run through the Big Shot to cut out the letters.  Remove card stock from the dies, making sure to save all the pieces.
  3. Attach the stamped card front to Soft Suede card base using SNAIL Adhesive.

4. Replace the letters into the negative space using Mini Dimensionals to pop them up. 

5. Use Tombow Multi-purpose glue to add the inserts in the “B”, D”, and A”.  They lay flat while the rest of the letters pop up.  Use a paper piercing tool to move the inserts into place as needed.

6. Stamp greeting from Floral &Fauna onto a scrap piece of Peekaboo Peach card stock using Soft Suede ink.  Banner cut one edge.  Attach to Soft Suede mat, banner cutting one edge to match.  Attach to card front using Mini Dimensionals to pop it up.

7. Attach enamel dots to card front to complete.

Bold Butterfly Paper Towel Background Stencil

Paper Towel Bold Butterfly Stencil

I often incorporate the paper towel that I have used to clean stamps, ink pad covers or ink refill bottles into my crafting.

This was the case after I used this paper towel to wipe off the tops of ink refill bottles which I had used in my Ink Refills and Hand Sanitizer projects.

This is what the paper towel looked like:

Bold Butterfly Paper Towel

I used the paper towel to create the Bold Butterfly card found here.

After cutting the butterfly out using my Big Shot and retiring Bold Butterfly Framelits Die, I was left with a negative stencil. 

I then used the stencil, paired with the retiring Butterfly Thinlits Die to create another quick card.

Remember, recycle and reuse!

 

Here's how:

  1. Here are the instructions for starting with the paper towel for the original card: The paper towel is 2-ply, so I first separated the plys.  This will give me another piece of paper towel to craft with at a later time.  In order to make the paper towel easier to work with, I always attach it to a piece of card stock.  By doing this, it is easy to cut the paper towel down to size using a paper trimmer.  I applied glue from a glue stick onto a scrap piece of Blushing Bride card stock.  Self-adhesive sheets would work as well.  Then, I trimmed the paper towel down to the size of the Butterfly Framelit. Run the piece through the Big Shot using the Bold Butterfly Framelit Die.
  2. Cut a piece of background designer series paper a little larger than the stencil.  Attach to the back of the stencil using SNAIL Adhesive.  For this card, I used a piece of retired Tempting Turquoise Patterns Designer Series Paper.
  3. Cut a butterfly using the Big Shot and retiring Butterfly Thinlits die out of Powder Pink card stock.  Attach the butterfly to the cut-out using a Mini Dimensional on the body to pop it up.
  4. Attach to a piece of Melon Mambo matting.  Attach to Whisper White card base.
  5. Stamp greeting from Wish Big using Tempting Turquoise ink.

Easy and done!

So don't throw those paper towels away after cleanups.

Recycle and reuse!  Add them to your crafting arsenal for future projects!

Love the bright colors and patterns!

I decided to use it for a butterfly cut out using my Big Shot and retiring Bold Butterfly Framelits Die.

Here's how:

  1.

  2. Run the piece through the Big Shot using the Bold Butterfly Framelit Die.
  3.  To create the background, I simply tapped Tempting Turquoise, Marina Mist and Garden Green inks (all retiring) onto my "E" clear-mount block, spritzed it with water so the inks would pool and run, then stamped the block onto a piece of watercolor paper.  I let it sit for a few seconds, lifted it up, and set the paper aside to dry.
  4. Attach the paper towel butterfly to the watercolor background using a Mini Dimensional to pop it up.
  5. Stamp greeting from Wish Big using Tempting Turquoise ink.
  6. Attach to Melon Mambo card base.

Done and easy!

So don't throw those paper towels away after ink cleanups.

Clear Block Pocketful of Sunshine Watercolor Background

Pocketful of Sunshine acrylic block background

I recently needed a quick birthday card.

  It was a bright and beautiful day here in the mountains of southern Colorado. 

This was the inspiration needed to create this quick and simple clear block watercolor background paired with the sun image found in the stamp set Pocketful of Sunshine!

Here's how:

  1. To create the watercolor background, tap ink onto a clear-mount block, spritz the ink with water, and stamp onto a piece of watercolor paper.  Let it sit for a few seconds, then lift.  Set the paper aside to dry completely.  For this card, I tapped on Crushed Curry ink in the middle of the block, Calypso Coral on the bottom right of the block, and Dapper Denim on the bottom left and upper part of the block.
  2.  Once the paper is dry, swipe an Embossing Buddy over the card front.  Stamp the sun and ray images from Pocketful of Sunshine using Versamark ink.  Heat emboss using a heat tool and copper embossing powder.
  3. Stamp greeting from Teeny Tiny Wishes using Versamark and heat emboss using a heat tool and copper embossing powder.
  4. Attach card front to a copper foil mat, then attach to a Crushed Curry card base.

Done!

I like how the mixing of the Calypso Coral, Crushed Curry, and Dapper Denim inks created a slight lavender and green tint to the watercolor paper.

Grid Sheet Happy Celebrations-Sending Wishes Your Way

Happy Celebrations grid paper

Recyle and reuse!

Stampin' Up! Grid Paper

It's a great way to cover your work surface.

  But what can you do with it once it has been used and is covered with ink?

Don't throw it away!

Instead, cut it up and use it to make new creations!

For the card above, I was testing using different colors on the ink splotch image found in the stamp set Happy Celebrations.

I tapped on Berry Burst, Crushed Curry, and Marina Mist inks onto the stamp, then spritzed it with water and stamped onto the grid sheet paper.

Oh, I really liked that, so I alternated the colors and stamped again.

I liked the way the colors popped with the black grid marks found on the paper.

I trimmed the paper down, then added a butterfly I cut out using my Big Shot and Butterfly and Bold Butterfly Framelits dies using a Dimensional to pop it up.

The solid butterfly was cut out of Berry Burst card stock with the detailed overlay cut out of Basic Black card stock.

I stamped the greeting from Butterfly Basics using Archival Black ink.  This is one of my favorite sentiments, and I use it often.

The grid paper was layered to a Basic Black mat, then added to a Berry Burst card front.

Easy!

 

Supplies Used:

Stamp Sets: Happy Celebrations, Butterfly Basics

Ink: Berry Burst, Crushed Curry, Marina Mist, Archival Black

Paper: Berry Burst, Basic Black, Stampin' Up! Grid Paper

Accessories: Big Shot, Butterfly, and Bold Butterfly Framelits Dies, Dimensional, Stampin' Spritzer filled with water

Easter Bunny York Peppermint Candy Holders

Happy Easter!

Here's a quick and easy Easter gift idea using the Big Shot and framelits dies or punches.

They hold a York Peppermint Patty.

Pyramid Pals Easter Bunnies

I created these cuties as thank you gifts for attendees at a recent class.

Here's how:

  1. Punch the front and back of the bunnies out of a piece of Shimmery White card stock using a 2 1/2" circle punch or the Big Shot and a framelits die. Sponge ink around the edges.  I used Berry Burst ink.
  2.  For the faces, I used the retired stamp set Playful Pals stamped in Basic Gray ink on the punched circle.  If you don't have that set or one like it, it would be easy to draw on the nose and whiskers with markers.  Use smaller circle punches to create the eyes and attach using Dimensionals.  Stamp the greeting from Teeny Tiny Wishes using Basic Gray ink.
  3. The packets of York Peppermint Patties are a rectangle shape, so I applied a little SNAIL Adhesive to the backs, and folded up the edges, securing them to the SNAIL.  This way, they are more round shape and the edges will not show beyond the Shimmery White circles.
  4. Apply SNAIL Adhesive on the back side of a stamped circle which will be your front and a plain circle which will be your back. Sandwich the York Peppermint Patty in between.

Pyramid Pals Easter Bunnies inside

5.  For the ears, again I used Playful Pals with the retiring Pyramid Pals Framelits dies.  I stamped the ear images on a piece of Shimmery White card stock using Berry Burst or Sweet Sugarplum ink.  I cut them out using the Big Shot and framelits dies.  If you don't have this set of framelits, you can always use oval punches to create the ears out of card stock. Apply a small amount of SNAIL to the bottom of each ear and attach to the inside of the front circle.

6. Stamp the bow from Playful Pals onto a piece of Sweet Sugarplum card stock using Berry Burst ink.  Cut out using the matching framelit die.  Use a piece of ribbon tied in a bow if you don't have the framelits die.  Attach to the front of the circle using a Mini Dimensional.

7. Punch a tail out of Berry Burst or Sweet Sugarplum card stock using a 1 1/4" scallop punch.  Or, use a small circle punch.  Attach to the back circle using a Mini Dimensional. Easter Bunnies Back

 

Happy Easter from me to you!
