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.

Christmas Stocking Card

I know it’s been a long time since I’ve posted anything on my blog but I’ve been busy! I just got a large invitation order out the door, my work schedule has been more hectic than usual, and I just now had a minute to come up for air! It’s almost time to get Christmas cards in the mail so I decided to make one to get the juices flowing.

This card uses Cherry Cobbler base with a Chocolate Chip textured card stock layer. The stockings were made with the Stocking Punch. I used Very Vanilla card stock and Silver Glimmer Paper. I ran the Vanilla pieces through the Big Shot with the Square Lattice Embossing Folder to make them look like knitted stockings. The band around the silver stocking is Very Vanilla Velvet Ribbon from the Holiday Mini catalog. The ribbon is so nice and soft, I’d like to make a card that features more of it.

The sentiment is my favorite Christmas one from Christmas Greetings, stamped in Versamark and heat embossed with White Embossing Powder.  Around the edge of the card, I used the Signo Gel Pen to create a faux stitched effect and to frame out the card front.

Thanks for looking. Hopefully I’ll be back sooner rather than later! My schedule has by no means lightened up but I’ll do my best to keep up!
