Hello! Thank you for joining me today for another handstamped card idea!  Today I am featuring the Stampin' Up! Bokeh Dots background stamp as well as the Spectrum Rainbow pad that I inked with my Stampin' Up! ink refills!

For this colorful birthday card idea, I inked the Bokeh Dots background stamp with my spectrum pad (it is the perfect size!!) and stamped it onto Whisper White cardstock. I cut that to 1/4" around the image, layered it onto the Gorgeous Grape printed paper from my Brights 6x6 Designer Paper Stack and then onto a 3-1/2" x 5" Stampin' Up! thick whisper white note card!  I finished off the card with 3 of the Glitter Enamel Dots and a stamped greeting in Gorgeous Grape from the Picture Perfect Birthday stamp set.

 See Patty's 2 week special offer HERE

 

I hope you have had fun following me on our Alaskan Cruise Adventure this week! I've been posting from Seattle and the Cruise ship whenever I can!!  You can see those posts HERE.

While we are on the ship, one of the Stampin' UP! activities is a card swap.  I wanted to share the card I made, and I hope you like it!  It features the Healing Hugs stamp set and several other fun Stampin' UP! products!

I really love the new Delicate Lace edgelits from Stampin' UP!.. that's what I used for the lovely white lacy detail on these cards.  You can read more about them HERE.

Other products I incorporated into my Cruise Swap Cards are:

  • Petal Promenade designer paper (2" x 4" piece)
  • Thanks for all you do image from the Friendly Expressions set stamped in Grapefruit Grove on a die cut Stitched Shape oval

When I made multiples of a card (which is almost always), I die cut, score, stamp, and fussy cut everything I need first, then assemble.

Stampin' Bingo fun at Kurstan's house!

Follow along on our Seattle/Alaska Cruise adventure HERE

See Patty's 2 week special offer HERE

 

I thought you might enjoy some fun photos from a recent Stampin' Bingo event I attended.  It was at Kurstan's house (she is in my Luv 2 Stamp Group) and she provided 4 Stampin' UP! card projects for us to make, as well as 6 Bingo games, snacks and prizes!  We had a blast, and so many people bought "extra bingo cards" that we ran out of the little tokens and started using the Hershey kisses on the table, and then pennies and then punched cardstock circles!!
