Balloon Bash Birthday Card

 Wow-splash-birthday-bash-pattystamps

I know I've told you before how much fun it is to stamp with Cindee... and yep, we had another play day!!  We made several cards and this one was super fun!  I saw the idea online but there was no watermark so I don't know who originated this idea, but we thank you whoever you are!  We stamped the Balloon Bash "just for you" stamp "on the reverse side" of the photopolymer on our Whisper White Cardstock with Pool Party ink first, then turned it over and stamped the actual image with Memento Black ink. If that totally doesn't make sense,  SEE THIS VIDEO for more info on "stamping the reverse side" of your stamps (same technique shown at the end of the video with the tree image stamped on the wrong side).

  Balloon-bash-birthday-card-stampin-up-sequins

So after stamping the "wrong side" and then stamping the right side, then we inked the stamp with Pumpkin Pie ink and stamped it on a scrap, and cut out the "just for you" banner, and added it to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals.

Balloon-bash-birthday-card-stampin-up-in-color-sequins

Cindee said... we must decorate the inside of our card... well of course! :)

Such a GREAT suggestion Cindee!  We used the balloon stamps in the same Balloon Bash birthday stamp set and added a piece of the Birthday Bash DSP too! Ink colors:  Pumpkin Pie, Crushed Curry and Bermuda Bay.

Balloon-bash-birthday-card-stampin-up-dsp

So after Cindee's great suggestion, I had an idea... and we added the In Color Sequins to the front of the card...  ya.. don't tell anyone I'm a clutz with the liquid glue..

Balloon-bash-birthday-stampin-up-in-color-sequins

 The Sequins are ON SALE this week with the WEEKLY DEALS!!

Best Day Ever Bookmark Card

 

Featured Products Today:

Best Day Ever Sale a Bration Stamp Set and Best Year Ever DSP

Last week I was one of the featured Sale a Bration sample artists on the Stampin' Up! Blog, and I thought I'd share more details about 2 of my projects with you.  If you missed the Petite Cafe Treat Bag, see THIS POST.

Sab-2015-best-day-ever-ensemble-pattystamps

Here is one of the cards I submitted:

Sab-2015-best-day-ever-black-polka-dot-card

I created a bookmark / tag to go on this fun card.. I stamped the background of the card with StazOn White ink and the dots stamp that comes in the free Best Day Ever stamp set.  Select yours with a $50 online order! The stamped Basic Black panel is on a folded Crisp Cantaloupe folded card base.

Sab-2015-best-day-ever-black-polka-dot-card-tag

 I used the line stamp in the set as a stem and the heart as a flower!  Cute, huh?

Calypso Coral Chevron ribbon is a cute peppy touch to the tag.

To create the tag: trim your Whisper White cardstock to 2" wide then punch the top with the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch.  EASY!

Here is the other cute "pinwheel" note card I submitted:

Sab-2015-best-day-ever-pinwheel-card

I just covered the front of a Stampin' Up! Whisper White note card with a piece of the pinwheel designer paper in the FREE Sale a Bration Best Year Ever paper package and then stamped coordinating images with the Best Day Ever stamp set.  Candy dots complete the pinwheels!   (did you notice the cute free Sale a Bration Ribbon in Calypso Coral!?) :)

Don't forget.. we are 1/2 way through Sale a Bration... if there are Sale a Bration gift choices you have not selected yet.. you have about 6 weeks left to do so!

1 free Sale a Bration gift for each $50 in Stampin' Up Merchandise you order!

Wood You Be Mine Valentine's for my Guys

They are both woodworking enthusiasts so I decided this stamp set "wood" be perfect for their Valentine's Cards!  See the Wood You Be Mine stamp set here!

Wood-you-be-mine-valentine-cards-stampin-up-pattystamps

If you want to hear about our "hot date" for Valentine's Day... I'll fill you in on that at the end of this post :)

Wood-you-be-mine-valentine-card-fallen-for-you-stampin-up-pattystamps

In addition to the new Wood You Be Mine stamp set, I used several pieces of paper from the Adventure Bound Paper Stack... it is a GREAT paper stack, especially for anyone who likes the outdoors or for guy cards!  Find it on pg 40 of the Occasions catalog or HERE in my online store.

Wood-you-be-mine-valentine-card-inside-2-stampin-up-pattystamps

Wood-you-be-mine-valentine-card-stampin-up-pattystamps-3

I cut around some of the logs above, and pieced it over another piece of paper from the same Adventure Bound paper stack... I like these 2 pieces together!

I tore pieces of the Adventure Bound paper stack for the inside of the cards.. I really like how both of the insides turned out!!

 Ok, so back to the Hot Date...

I have been wanting one of these turning organizer trays for a LONG time.. I kept seeing them on Pinterest, and last week when I found out that they are available right here locally at Harbor Freight, I was .. shall we say EXCITED!!!!!!

For Valentine's Day we decided that we were taking our first day off since Christmas to go run errands and stop at Harbor Freight to get this tray!!

Valentines-harbor-freight-revovling-storage-tray

So yes, that was our HOT DATE for Valentine's day... a trip to Harbor Freight, a few other errands and lunch at Cocina Medina!

It was a very fun day off, and Eric and Jason LOVE Harbor Freight because it's nothing but tools and hardware!!  As I type this, they are both putting it together for me and I'll share pix of what I organize in it in a future blog post.

Hope you all had a great Valentine's day with those you love!

Update on the Valentine's for the Office cards

 

You may remember that I blogged about the handmade Valentine cards I sent in to my hubby's office for the guys to select from... well, I asked you which set of card you thought the guys would like best.. and I have an update..

The "Love Story" Project Life card cards and the Stacked with Love cards went first (See them all here).  One person selected the Sheltering Tree cards.

Since these Project Life cards were the most popular, I thought I'd do an update with more info on them.  These were SO easy.. Here is the HOW TO:

  • I just grabbed some of the Love Story Project Life cards (see them on pg 189 of the annual catalog or here online) and I trimmed 1/2" off the length so they'd fit perfectly on a standard size card! How easy is that!?
  • I cut and folded Real Red cardstock as the base.. super simple!
  • I stamped I DO LOVE YOU in Real Red on the card below.  You'll find that great stamp on pg 24 of the Occasions catalog, or see the Big On You set here online.

I added the sweet little "love" heart on the Love you to the Moon card .. the heart is from the You Brighten my Day free Sale a Bration set on pg 11 of the Sale a Bration catalog.  I punched it out with the Itty Bitty Punch pack and then put an Itty Bitty Epoxy heart sticker on top!  See below at the bottom of this post for ordering info.

The only thing I added on the cards above was to stamp you on the card on the left.. that's in the Countless Sayings 2 stamp set, seen here online.

Isn't it so cool how the love stamp from the "You Brighten My Day" Sale a Bration set coordinates with the Itty Bitty Punch pack heart punch and the Itty Bitty Epoxy stickers! Wow! Way to go Stampin' Up! for all these coordinating products!!!

Sending you a Little Love

 

I have a couple more Valentine's cards filled with love for you ... since it is Valentine's week.. right?  Well, I am IN LOVE with the beautiful flower stencil piece found in the Stampin' Up! Artisan Embellishment kit!!! 

Read on for more details about creating this flower background with the stencil:

Artisan-embellishment-cards-snuggles-smooches-love-stampinup

Can you go wrong with Black, White and Red?

I think not.

LOVE CARD on left: The cute images are from the Snuggles and Smooches stamp set.  Do you recognize them from yesterday's blog post?  And the tiny love heart is a FREE CHOICE stamp set during Sale a Bration (from the You Brighten my Day set).

LOVE CARD on right: this sentiment is from the Build a Bouquet set

 

Artisan-embellishment-cards-snuggles-smooches-love-stampinup-tag

So you're wondering how I created that beautiful floral background, right?

Grab one of the stencils in your Artisan Embellishment kit (pg 27 Occasions catalog or HERE online) and a sponge dauber, and apply ink onto your cardstock!  Alternating between light and dark really gives this interesting dimension.

Artisan Embellishment kit available here online.

I used Rose Red ink and my Sponge Dauber for these samples.

I'm just tickled over how well these products coordinate... I LOVE it when a stamp matches a punch.. and then when you find an embellishment created just for the image.. wow!! TOO FUN!!  Itty Bitty Accents punch and Epoxy Stickers are the bomb!

I was looking for a sentiment with "love" in it, and I came across this one in the Build a Bouquet stamp set.. it's on pg 29 in the Occasions catalog, or here in my online store.  I think it just fits this tag perfectly, and I loved the scripty font and the message!

I cut a 2" wide strip of Whisper White cardstock and punched the top with my Ornate Tag Topper Punch, stamped the sentiment with Rose Red ink, then added 2 pieces of Stacked with Love Washi Tape.  I tied a piece of Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding and Sahara Sand Lace trim on the top of the tag.

 The tiny hearts paper is from the Stacked with Love paper stack - limited time only and it's the best seller in the Occasions catalog!! Find it on pg 5.

As you can see, the Artisan Embellishment kit comes with LOTS of goodies in it.. I'll have a video showing more of the contents of this kit on Friday, Feb. 20th, so please check back then for more info and ideas!

 

How-to-punch-tip

 Stamp Tip!  Remember.. always stamp first, then use your punch "upsidedown" to center it over your stamped image, then punch!
