Using the Same Word Die Two Ways – Birthday Cards

Hi everyone! I made some fruity birthday cards using the positive and negative created using the Happy Birthday To You Die from My Favorite Things (discontinued). This is a great way to make multiple cards with minimal supplies and not waste anything. This paper I uses can be found on page 14 of the new Sale-A-Bration Catalog.

For the first card, I started by cutting a piece of Whisper White 8-1/2″ X 11″ Thick Cardstock to 5-1/2 x 10″ and scored at 5-1/2″ to make a card base and a piece of Berry Delightful 12 x 12 DSP to 4-1/4″ x 4-3/4″. I also cut the front of the card to 4-3/4″ long.

I diecut the sentiment from the Berry Delightful 12 x 12 DSP using Happy Birthday To You Die from My Favorite Things (discontinued) and adhered a piece of Blackberry Bliss 8-1/2 x 11″ Cardstock to the back of it and adhered both to card base with Tombow Mono Multipurpose Glue. I saved the positive letters that were diecut with the die to use on my next card.

To add a pop of color behind the front panel and to the inside, I cut a piece of Garden Green 8-1/2 x 11″ Cardstock and adhered it on the right side of the card inside. Next, I fussycut images from the Berry Delightful 12 x 12 DSP and adhere them to the front of the card, popping up two of them with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I finished it by adding some Love From Lizi White Pin Stripe Peel-offs.

On the inside, I stamped a sentiment from Stampin’ Up! Well Said Stamp Set with Poppy Parade Ink and a fussycut a strawberry from the Berry Delightful 12 x 12 DSP.

For the first card, I started by cutting a piece of Whisper White 8-1/2″ X 11″ Thick Cardstock to 5-1/2 x 8-1/2″ and scored at 4-1/4″ to make a card base. I adhered the letters for the sentiment to the card with Tombow Mono Multipurpose Glue. Tip: To easily aand perfectly dhere the sentiment, cut a scrap piece of the sentiment and tape it down to the card suing low-tack tape. Then adhere your letters in the negative space. You won’t need to try to space out or align the letters.

Next, I fussycut some fruit and leaf images from the Berry Delightful 12 x 12 DSP and adhered them to the card. I finished it off by adding some Pearl Basic Jewels.

Stampin’ Up! Berry Blessings Stampset and Berry Delightful DSP

Happy New Year everyone! New year, time for some new posts! I want to start the year by introducing you to this cute watercolor berry stampset (Berry Blessings Stampset) and paper featured on page 14 of the new Sale-A-Bration Catalog. Yes, it is time for Sale-A-Bration people!!! It’s time to get free items with your purchases and who doesn’t like free goodies?!? I get very excited about gift-with-purchase promotions. 🙂

This stampset looks like you spent hours watercoloring images without the hassle; I love watercoloring but it can be time consuming and I’m not great at it. It also coordinates with the Sweet Strawberry Stampset and Strawberry Builder Punch found on page 44 in the new January-June 2021 Mini Catalog.

I kept these simple, letting the stamps and paper to do the hard work for me. For the first card, I started by cutting a piece of Whisper White 8-1/2″ X 11″ Thick Cardstock to 5-1/2 x 8-1/2″ and scored at 4-1/4″ to make a card base and a panel to 4 x 5-1/4″. Then diecut a circle with a 2-5/8 circle die from the Stampin’ Up! Circle Layering Dies.

I diecut a 2-7/8 circle from a piece of Strathmore 300 Series Bristol Smooth Paper and used Stampin’ Up! Balmy Blue Ink and a large watercolor brush to create a watercolor background on the circle piece. Then added splashes using a small watercolor brush and Stampin’ Up! Balmy Blue Ink and Granny Apple Green Ink to the watercolor circle as well as the top panel. Once dry, I adhered the circle to the back of the top panel in the window and the top panel to the card base with Tombow Mono Multipurpose Glue.

Next, I stamped and fussycut fruit and leaf images from the Berry Blessings Stampset and also fussycut some strawberries from the Berry Delightful 12 x 12 DSP. I used Granny Apple Green Ink, Pacific Point Ink, and Rich Razzleberry Ink.

Before adhering the fruit images, I stamped a sentiment from Berry Blessings Stampset with Poppy Parade Classic Ink onto the card then adhered the fruit images, popping some up with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Lastly I added some black lines around the circle using a circle die and a Black 0.03 Sakura Pigma Micron Pen.

On the inside, I stamped a sentiment from Stampin’ Up! Well Said Stamp Set with Pacific Point Ink and some berries from the Berry Blessings Stampset with Granny Apple Green Ink, and Rich Razzleberry Ink.

Dimensions


For the second card, I made an stepped up version. I started by cutting a piece of Whisper White 8-1/2″ X 11″ Thick Cardstock to 5-1/2 x 8-1/2″ and scored at 4-1/4″ to make a card base and a panel of Berry Delightful 12 x 12 DSP to 4 x 5-1/4″ and a piece of Vellum to 3-5/8″ x 4-1/2″ and adhered them to the card base.

Then diecut a 2-7/8 circle from Whisper White 8-1/2″ X 11″ Thick Cardstock and 2-5/8 circle from Berry Delightful 12 x 12 DSP with dies from the Stampin’ Up! Circle Layering Dies and adhered them to the card.

Next, I stamped fruit and leaf images from the Berry Blessings Stampset with Versamark Ink and heat embossed with Gold Emboss Powder. I watercolored the images using Granny Apple Green Ink, Garden Green Ink, Pacific Point Ink, Poppy Parade Ink and Rich Razzleberry Ink. I fussycut them all out and adhered them to the card, popping some up with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Lastly, I stamped a sentiment from Berry Blessings Stampset with Rich Razzleberry Ink, fussycut it out, and adhered it to the card. To finish it off, I added some Metallic Bright Gold Nuvo Drops and Gold Twine.

On the inside, I stamped a sentiment from Stampin’ Up! Well Said Stamp Set with Garden Green Ink and adhered some blueberries I had previously stamped and watercolored.

Using Pattern Paper As a Focal Point

Here’s a quick way to create a focal point on your card — pattern paper and a geometric die. It’s quick and you can use minimal supplies.

For the first card, I started by cutting a piece of Whisper White 8-1/2″ X 11″ Thick Cardstock to 5-1/2 x 8-1/2″ and scored at 4-1/4″ to make a card base. Then diecut a piece of Snowflake Splendor Designer Series Paper with a 2-7/8 circle die from the Stampin’ Up! Circle Layering Dies. This will be the background for my image.

I stamped the ice skating bear from the Warm & Toasty Stampset onto a piece of Whisper White 8-1/2″ X 11″ Thick Cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored him using Copics since I don’t have enough colors in my Stampin Blends. I used R20 (cheeks); R81, R83, R85 & R56 (hat and scarf); and N1, BG000 & 0 (bear). I fussycut the image out and set it aside.

Next I stamped the sentiment from the Warm & Toasty Stampset onto a piece of Whisper White 8-1/2″ X 11″ Thick Cardstock with Stampin’ Up! Balmy Blue Ink and trimmed it down to 7/8 x 4-1/4”.

I adhered the pattern paper piece, image and sentiment strip to the card. I finished off the card by diecutting some snowflakes from the Stampin’ Up! So Many Snowflakes Die from Whisper White 8-1/2″ X 11″ Thick Cardstock, Balmy Blue Glimmer Paper, and Melon Mambo 8-1/2″ X 11″ Cardstock.

On the inside, I stamped a sentiment from Stampin’ Up! Fireside Trimmings Stamp Set with Stampin’ Up! Melon Mambo Ink. I stamped the small polar bear from the Warm & Toasty Stampset onto a piece of Whisper White 8-1/2″ X 11″ Thick Cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored him using Copics. I used R20 (cheeks), N1, BG000 & 0 (bear). I fussycut the image out, adhered it to the bottom to the card and added some diecut snowflakes from Balmy Blue 8-1/2″ X 11″ Cardstock.

Stampin’ Up!’s Gnome for the Holidays

Hello friends. These little gnomes featured in the Stampin’ Up!’s Gnome for the Holidays are super adorable! They were pretty easy to color and fussycut. I was able to stamp and quickly color the images. This stampset can be found on page 23 of the new Aug-Dec Mini Catalog.

Ok so let’s see how this card came together. I started by cutting a piece of Whisper White 8-1/2″ X 11″ Thick Cardstock to 5-1/2 x 8-1/2″ and scored at 4-1/4″ to make a card base and two pieces to 4 x 5-1/4″. One piece I embossed using the Winter Snow Embossing Folder, then created a gradient sky using Balmy Blue Ink and Misty Moonlight Ink and adhered it to the card.

On the second piece, I stamped the gnome tree house with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and drew the ground with a pencil and went over it with a Sakura Pigma Micron Blister Black Pen, 05. Make sure to use a marker that will not bleed with your paper or what ever coloring medium you will be using. I also stamped the gnomes onto another piece of Whisper White 8-1/2″ X 11″ Thick Cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.

I colored the images with Stampin’ Blends. I used Real Red Light & Dark, Old Olive Light & Dark, Crumb Cake Light & Dark, Daffodil Delight Light & Dark, Pool Party Light & Dark and Smoky Slate Light & Dark. I fussycut all the images out, leaving a white border and adhered them to the card, adding Stampin’ Dimensionals to some of the gnomes.

I stamped a sentiment from Stampin’ Up!’s Gnome for the Holidays onto a piece of Whisper White 8-1/2″ X 11″ Thick Cardstock with Real Red Ink and trimmed it down to 1/2 x 2-7/8″ and cut out banner tails on one side. I adhered it using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I finished off the card by ading some highlights to the images using a Uni-Ball Signo Broad Point White Gel Pen.

On the inside, I just stamped a gnome from the Stampin’ Up!’s Gnome for the Holidays with Real Red Ink.

2 Cards Featuring Stampin’ Up!’s Sweetest Borders Die

What is better than candy canes during the holiday season?!?? Well maybe, hot chocolate and candy canes (yum!). 🙂 This cute candy cane border is from Stampin’ Up!’s Sweetest Borders Dieset which also features a holly leaves border and individual candy canes, peppermints and holly leaves. Lots of options with this dieset. It can be found on page 21 of the new Aug-Dec Mini Catalog. It also coordinates with the Sweetest Time Stampset.

I kept these cards simple but changed the papers and ink colors.

I diecut the candy cane border as well as some extra peppermints and candy canes with the Sweetest Borders Dies from Red Glitter Paper. I also diecut some candy canes and peppermints in white using the solid dies which cuts the backing. For the tiny peppermints I just added a piece of white cardstock behind it. I adhered the border to the card and trimmed off the excess.

I stamped a sentiment from the Christmas Means More stampset onto a piece of Whisper White 8-1/2″ X 11″ Thick Cardstock with Real Red Ink. I fussycut the sentiment and adhered it with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside, I stamped a sentiment from the Fireside Trimmings with Stampin’ Up! Crumb Cake Ink and added a red glitter candy cane. And that’s it for this card. Very easy!

Stampin’ Up!’s Fireside Trimming stampset

Hi friends. I have one last Fall card and of course another Christmas card. Now I know Fall is over for most of us even though the calendar says it doesn’t end until December 21st but I wanted to show the possibilities with this stamp set. Stampin’ Up!’s Fireside Trimming stampset is good for Fall, Halloween, Christmas and many other occasions. This stampset can be found on page 20 of the new Aug-Dec Mini Catalog. It also coordinates with the Fireside Dies.

For the first card, I started by cutting a piece of Whisper White 8-1/2″ X 11″ Thick Cardstock to 5-1/2 x 8-1/2″ and scored at 4-1/4″ to make a card base. Then cut a piece of Guilded Autumn 12 x 12 Specialty Designer Series Paper to 4-1/4 x 5-1/2″ for the top panel and adhered it to the card base.

I spritzed some water on the panel, dried it and adhered it to the card.

I stamped the fireplace from Stampin’ Up!’s Fireside Trimming stampset with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink onto a piece of pattern paper from Guilded Autumn 12 x 12 Specialty Designer Series Paper. I used Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends to add depth to the inside areas, fussycut it out (you can use the coordinating dies but I don’t have them yet) and adhered it to the card.

I stamped the images with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink onto a piece of Whisper White 8-1/2″ X 11″ Thick Cardstock and colored them using Stampin Blends and Copic markers. I used Pumpkin Pie Light & Dark and Granny Apple Green Light & Dark for the pumpkins; Cajun Craze Light & Dark, Granny Apple Green Light & Dark, Real Red Light & Dark for the leaves in the vase; Copic BG10 & BG11 for the vase; and E27 & E29 for the wood piles.
