Flower Medallion Birthday

When the new Occasion Catalog came out I was so busy creating with all of my new products, but I wanted to start using some of my other favorites from the Annual Catalog.  Soon, some of these products may be retiring, and I want to make sure to use them at my classes and for my own personal use, just in case they aren't being carried over into the new Annual Catalog on June 1st.

My card base is Very Vanilla Card Stock that I layered with a piece of Bermuda Bay Card Stock embossed with my Boho Chic Embossing Folder.  I punched my flowers with the Flower Medallion Punch and Bohemian Designer Series Paper.  I added some Metal Rimmed Pearls to the center of each flower and placed on a piece of retired ribbon.  My sentiment is from the Tag Talk Stamp Set and was stamped using Blackberry Bliss Ink and punched out with the Label Bracket Punch.

Get Well Soon!

One of the new Sale-a-bration products added is the Metallics Glitter Tape.  You get three rolls, 1 of each color of gold, silver, and white.  The tape is 9/16" wide and adds some great shine to your project.

For my get well card I took the white glitter tape and used a Sponge Dauber and Perfect Plum ink to turn it Plum.  Now the glitter tape coordinates really well with my card.  How nice that you can color this to create any color.  Again, Sale-a-bration ends on March 31st, so if you would like to get your own FREE Metallics Glitter Tape you can go to my online store and place your order of at least $50 before shipping and tax.  You can order from the Annual and Occasions Catalog, Clearance Rack, and Weekly Deals.

What I Love

"What I Love" is the name of the stamp set I used for today's card.  It is one of the sets you can still choose for FREE if you spend $50 on any Stampin' Up! products.  But, don't wait too long, Sale-a-bration ends March 31, 2016.

My card base of Whisper White Card Stock was layered with another cut layer of Whisper White that was stamped using Versa Mark Ink and then heat embossed with White Embossing Powder.  When this was finished, to make the flowers stand out I sponged Bermuda Bay Ink onto that layer.  I stamped a few additional flowers and my sentiment in Bermuda Bay Ink as well, and added some Bermuda Bay 1/8" Stitched Ribbon to finish the card.

Shine - It's your day!

Cut a large sunburst to make a quick, easy card for a birthday, or any occasion where you want the person to "shine".  The Sunburst Sayings Stamp Set and Thinlits can be purchased together in a bundle to save you 15%.

To make this quick card I cut the sunburst using a sheet of Color Me Irresistible Specialty Designer Series Paper.  This unique paper has an embossed look and the pack comes with 6 white sheets you can color in any color, and 6 sheets that are already colored, one each of the following colors - Black, Cucumber Crush, Delightful Dijon, Tip Top Taupe, Mint Macaron, and Watermelon Wonder.  For my sunburst I used the Delightful Dijon sheet.   I then stamped my sentiment and cut this out with a Circle Framelit and placed it onto the sunburst using Dimensionals.  I also sponged some Daffodil Delight ink on the edges of my sentiment to add more dimension.

One Big Meaning

I guess the name of the stamp set does say it all.  The large "Thank You" paired with some pretty spring Designer Series Paper and ribbon do create "One Big Meaning".

To my card base I added a layer of Whisper White Card Stock that I embossed with the Honeycomb Embossing Folder.  Next, I took some Birthday Bouquet Designer Series Paper and my Hexagon Punch to create a colorful background.  Before I placed this layer onto my Whisper White Card Base I tied some Watermelon Wonder 1" Stitched Satin Ribbon around the center.  My large Thank You was cut out using a Deco Label Framelit, which was sponged on the edges with Watermelon Wonder Ink and placed onto my layer using Dimensionals.

The following products were used:
