Make a Wish Birthday Cards

make a wish 1

When I saw this make a wish stamp, I had to have it. Funny enough, it’s from the Make a Wish stamp set in the Occasions Mini 2013 catalog. I like it so much I made 2 cards with it! Actually 3 cards but I gave one away already before taking a picture!

First up is the card pictured above. I used markers to color different parts of the stamp different colors. I stamped it on Whisper White card stock and punched out the circle with the 2 1/2″ Circle Punch.

The base is tempting turquoise, layered with chevron print paper from Rain or Shine Designer Series Paper. The strip of paper is Raspberry Ripple.

For the Basic Gray/Basic Black 1 1/4″ Two-Tone Grosgrain Ribbon medallion, I used the Jumbo Sticky Rounds. Apply the Sticky Round to the back of the Whisper White circle, then take your ribbon and stick the end onto the back of the card stock. Go around the circle, pleating and folding the ribbon as you go. I added a stampin dimensional to the center and a smaller 1” Circle on the back for added stability. Then adhere the medallion to the card base.

The next card I made is a smaller 3″x3″ square card. I used Basic Black card stock for the base, and another piece of the Daffodil delight chevron DSP from Rain or Shine Designer Series Paper.

This time, I used White Craft ink stamped on Basic Black card stock. Then, I paper pierced around the edge and used a white gel pen to connect the dots and give it a “stitched look”. The black card stock is layered on a piece of Whisper white with stampin dimensionals.

To finish off the card, I added a red button threaded with Bakers Twine.

Candy Land Birthday Party

Candy Land was the theme for my daughter’s 5th birthday party. She chose it based on both the board game and her extreme love of candy!

First up, the invitation: I used the stamp set Sweets for the Sweet to make the lollipop and candies. The base is 5″x7″ chocolate chip card stock that I gave some texture to using the Big Shot and the Perfect Details Texturz Plate.

The candies were stamped in Pumpkin Pie, Melon Mambo, Rich Razzleberry, and Lucky Limeade. I used Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder and Versamark to make some of them sparkle. I wanted them a bit smaller than the lollipop so I used the 3/4″ Circle Punch to cut them down a bit.

As for the lollipop, I stamped it with Daffodil Delight ink and used the Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder on it. A little 1/8″ Taffeta Pretty in Pink Ribbon is knotted and attached with a mini glue dot.

The information was printed on Whisper White card stock. The Candy Land type font is called “Candy Cane” and I downloaded it for free online. Behind the printed information is Pool Party card stock that was die cut using the Big Shot and Scallop Square Bigz Die. It’s attached to the base with stampin dimensionals.

I didn’t have much time to take pictures during the party, but I did manage to take a picture of the candy buffet. I took it with my phone so the picture is not the best quality, but you can see what I did. The little chalk board sign was painted and decorated using various stickers and little lollipop Christmas ornaments.

The lollipop topiary was made using a topiary form (from the floral section of the craft store) and Dum Dum lollipops. Almost 400 lollipops were used to cover the topiary!

Various vases, jars, and containers I had around the house or borrowed from my sister held all the candy. The gingerbread cupcake box was found at Hobby Lobby. I used it for a raffle–the prize being a brand new Candy Land board game. Inside the box, I put slips of paper with the childrens’ names and my daughter pulled the winner.

We still have a lot of candy left over! I’m going to leave the buffet up for a few more days because it makes me smile when I look at it. I suppose a candy buffet in my living room would come in pretty handy with company stopping by, and my daughter certainly won’t complain!

Sail Away Masculine Card

This is a really versatile masculine card–Father’s Day, Birthday, etc. The stamp is called Sail Away from the latest Mini Catalog.

For the base, I used Pear Pizazz card stock. I stamped the sailboat on Watercolor Paper with Brown Stazon ink and then colored the image with Stampin UP Markers and blended them with an Aquapainter. That was layered on So Saffron card stock.

Across the card, I used Baja Breeze card stock embossed with the Square Lattice Embossing Folder and the Big Shot. On either side, I attached clear Bitty Buttons threaded with Linen Thread.
