Happy First Birthday – Inspire. Create. Stamping Challenge #004

This week’s inspire. create. challenge #004 is a colour challenge. My Happy First Birthday card was inspired by my youngest niece. Her birthday was this week and I wanted a bright and celebratory card.

For this Happy First Birthday card I used an aqua painter to flick ink on to my front layer then added more depth using the soft sky ribbon, flirty flamingo striped baker’s twine, the starburst punch, leaf punch, stitched shape framelits, and Large Numbers framelits. The Happy Birthday sentiment is from the In The City hostess exclusive stamp set.

One Jar of Love – Stampin’ Up! Handmade Card

Today’s “One Jar of Love” handmade card was inspired by my eldest niece and her moms. Yesterday was my niece’s 1st birthday, and I wanted to make a handmade card that celebrated this milestone, but also one that her mom’s would enjoy. Because, let’s be honest … she’s one and could care less about cards, haha.

My sister and sister in law do not favour pink, so that colour family was definitely out. However, they love rustic wood and everything mason jar. Stampin’ Up’s Jar of Love stamp set and co-coordinating framelits were perfect! This card also features the Wood Textures Designer Series paper and the heart and background flowers are from the Wood Words Bundle. I was so happy with how the 1 fit perfectly inside the jar! The card is sized 4.25″ x 4.25″ and fits inside a standard envelope. Also, you may not be able to see it in the picture but I used the Wink of Stella to give the vellum mason jar some shimmer!

Cheers! Happy Birthday – Stampin’ Up! Handmade Card

Today’s Cheers! Happy Birthday card was inspired by one of my cousin’s who celebrated her birthday this week. She is a wine aficionado and the Mixed Drinks stamp set was perfect for her handmade birthday card!

I chose Berry Burst as the primary colour for the card as it reminded me of red wine.  The sentiment on the inside of the card reads: “Here’s to your amazingness”

Fun tip: in order to make the wine glasses appear “glassy” use the Fine Tip Glue Pen to fill them in after stamping. Be sure to allow PLENTY of time to dry. You can use your heat tool to help speed up the process.

To adhere the “Happy Birthday” cut out I used the NEW adhesive sheets. My first attempt was a bit of a mishap – don’t use the 2nd method listed on the instruction page for intricate pieces – I ended up with a spider web of a mess when I peeled it off. My second go round I used the first method listed and cut out the die after adhering the silver foil cardstock to the adhesive sheet and this worked BRILLIANTLY!

Bike Ride Birthday

Hi friends!

Today’s post is inspired by my son. He turned 2 yesterday so I made him this card which features some of his favourite things: books, dogs, bikes and balloons! He has a red bike which helped with the colour combo for this card. This card was also my first play with embossing paste. I made my own mask using the 2 die from the Large Numbers framelits and coloured the paste with re-inker. What I learned: Only one drop of re-inker is needed and make sure you paste is completely dry before attempting to run it through your big shot! Also, If you get any paste on your plates make sure to clean them immediately! I forgot to include Dazzling Diamonds glitter in the product list below. I sprinkled that on top of the wet embossing paste to give the “2” some shimmer.  I also used some retired red embossing powder on top of the red bike image, but you could use the clear embossing powder and achieve a similar result. The final version of this card looked nothing like the original concept I had it my head but I really love how it turned out!


I think he liked it!
