Celebrate Today Stamp & Matching Framelits {Balloon Birthday Cards}

Here are 2 cards I made using the Stampin’ UP! Celebrate Today Photopolymer stamp set from the Occasions Catalog. They have the same basic layout and design, but I switched up the colors a bit. The first card uses the Polka Dot Embossing Folder on a Crumb Cake card stock base. The Balloon Framelits cut out my Coastal Cabana balloon. In keeping with the polka dot theme, I stamped the dots from the stamp set on the balloon and topped them off with Crystal Effects for dimension.  The “happy” is from the Hello You Thinlits and the “Birthday” is from Hooray It’s Your Day stamp set. I stamped it on Vellum with Chocolate Chip ink. A strip of Chocolate Chip card stock along the bottom and some Early Espresso Bakers Twine tied in a bow finish off the card.

The second card uses the Lucky Stars Embossing Folder, crumb cake and pink pirouette card stock. I stamped the stars/confetti on the balloon in Gold Encore ink, then added stars punched from Gold Glimmer Paper using the Confetti Stars Border Punch. The sentiment is from Hooray its Your Day, this time stamped in white craft ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. The bakers twine is from the January 2015 Paper Pumpkin Kit.

Color Renovation for Mom {Mother’s Day Gerbera Daisy Card}

Since I’m a mom, and my favorite flower is the Gerbera Daisy, this card is perfect for me–too bad I can’t give it to myself!  A few weeks ago, I received samples of soon to be released colors from Stampin Up’s Color RenovationDaffodil Delight, Early Espresso, Cherry Cobbler, Marina Mist, and Cajun Craze. This card uses the first three, along with other current colors and returning favorites like Old Olive, Riding Hood Red, and Tangerine Tango.

The card base is Daffodil Delight, layered with Vellum Card Stock that I embossed using the Swiss Dots Embossing Folder in the Big Shot. I adhered it to the base with Mini Glue Dots to tone down the yellow. I’m not a big yellow person, so adding the Vellum really softened the color and makes it more palatable for my taste.

I matted Whisper White card stock with Early Espresso, a dark blackish brown and stamped the mother’s day sentiment from Well Scripted in Riding Hood Red ink.

The daisies were made using the Scallop Circle Punch, in Cherry Cobbler and Tangerine Tango card stock. I cut between each scallop using my paper snips to create the petals. In the center of each flower, I used the 3/4″ Circle Punch to punch out Daffodil Delight and cut a 1/4″ wide strip of card stock (Cherry Cobbler and Tangerine Tango) that I quilled into a spiral shape. I attached the quilled paper to the flowers’ centers using Mini Glue Dots. The leaves are from Sweet Pea Stitched Felt, also attached with Mini Glue Dots.

As a final touch, around the base of the Early Espresso/Whisper White layer, I tied some Old Olive 5/8″ Grosgrain Ribbon into a knot.

{Blessed} Baptism Card CASED from Stampin Success May 2010

I copied this card from the May issue of Stampin Success, by Jolene Slack, on page 23. Unfortunately, I am not allowed to post the original picture, but it was featured in the new Color Renovation section. Jolene’s sample used new Marina Mist, here, I substituted Baja Breeze, a returning In Color.

The card base is made from a 5 1/4″ x 10 1/2″ piece of Baja Breeze, folded in half. Next, I took a 5″ square of Shades of Spring DSP in the Certainly Celery pattern and layered it on the card base.

I used the Scallop Square Bigz Die and the Big Shot to cut a scallop square from Parisian Breeze DSP (retired). I sponged Baja Breeze ink along the edges using a Sponge Dauber, then adhered it to the base with Stampin Dimensionals.

Using more paper from Shades of Spring DSP, I layered a 3 1/4″ square of Certainly Celery on a 3″ square of DSP, attaching it to the base with SNAIL adhesive.

The square window was made by embossing Certainly Celery card stock with the Swiss Dots embossing folder and the Big Shot. Then, I cut the embossed piece down to 2″ square. I punched a window in the center with the 1 1/4″ Square Punch and sponged the frame with Certainly Celery ink. I stamped “Blessed” from So Very (a retired SAB set) in Baja Breeze on Whisper White, layering it behind the window. I also stamped an image from Tiny Tags in Certainly Celery ink, stamped off, randomly over the whisper white.

At the top, I added a loop of Baja Breeze Satin Ribbon from Valet Ribbon Originals and a half back sticky pearl. Finally, I adhered the window piece to the base with Stampin Dimensionals.
