Flirtatious Fabric {Birthday Pennant}

Pennants are everywhere lately. Stampin UP has several birthday stamp sets using pennants, a pennant punch, and I’ve even seen decorating ideas using pennants as cake toppers.

Using the Flirtatious Designer Series Fabric, I came up with several projects using Stampin UP fabric on cards. Being that I’m not into sewing (I can sew a button or fix a hole in a sock, but that’s about it), the cards I made are relatively simple. I treated the fabric as paper, cutting it and adhering it just like card stock.

The above card uses pieces of fabric cut into triangles to create a pennant. I used SNAIL adhesive behind the fabric. It’s easier to put the SNAIL onto the card stock first, then adhere the fabric down. After putting the pennants in place, I glued Linen Thread along the tops of the pennants using Mono Multi Adhesive.

The stamp is from Bring on the Cake, stamped in Basic Black and colored in with coordinating SU Markers. The base is Old Olive, layered with Daffodil Delight and Whisper White. The ribbon along the bottom is Pretty in Pink 1/8″ Taffeta. Below the ribbon, I punched holes using the cropadile to expose the yellow card stock underneath.

I’ll be posting more projects using the Flirtatious Designer Fabric so stay tuned…

Bring on the Cupcake

The color combo used here is Tempting Turquoise, Pear Pizazz and Chocolate Chip. It’s a go to combination for me. By changing up the stamps, it works for boys or girls, women or men. In this case, it was for a boy’s birthday, but just as easily could be appropriate for anyone.

I stamped the Pear Pizazz layer with Hello Friend (available July 1st) in Versamark ink and heat embossed with Clear Embossing Powder. “Happy Birthday” is from Bring on the Cake, stamped in Chocolate Chip craft ink and Clear Embossing Powder. I colored in the letters with new In Color Pool Party Marker.

The cupcake is a non-SU stamp that I colored in with SU Markers and topped off with Crystal Effects. On either side, I added Glimmer Brads. (I love them–I don’t use them enough!)

Birthday Flowers & Dots

I made this card for my husband’s grandmother. He suggested mailing her a card but I told him that was impossible because this one was BIG and bulky!

The card base is chocolate chip, layered with Chocolate Chip DSP in this polka dot pattern. As for the flowers, I made them by punching different colored card stock  with the Scallop Circle Punch. Then, I sprayed the scallop circles with water, crumpled them up, and let them dry. I added a white Basic Brad in the center of each flower, topped with a Rhinestone Jewel.

In the background, I used Apricot Appeal card stock, layered with Whisper White that I ran through the Big Shot with the Elegant Lines Embossing Folder. Using the sponge dauber, I added Certainly Celery ink to the raised portions.

The sentiment is from Bring on the Cake. I stamped it in Chocolate Chip ink on Pretty in Pink card stock, then punched it out with the Decorative Label Punch. To give it more interest, I sponged the edges with Pretty in Pink ink and added white dots with the White Gel Pen.
