“Birthday Wishes” Game Spinner Card

I think this Take a Spin stamp set is perfect for making birthday cards. Young or old, anyone would enjoy getting this type of card and spinning it over and over again. I know I do it when I’m making the cards!

The card base is So Saffron, layered with Chocolate Chip cut to 4″ x 5 1/4″. Then, I used Nursery Suite Specialty DSP in the So Saffron/White pattern cut to 3 3/4″ x 3″. Above that, across the front of the card, I used 1 1/4″ Striped Grosgrain in Pumpkin Pie.

I used Stampin UP Markers to color the stamp (direct to stamp), then colored in some of the images with the Markers as well. The colors I used were: Early Espresso, Marina Mist, Wild Wasabi, Real Red, Pumpkin Pie, Regal Rose, and Daffodil Delight.

The game board is layered on a 2″ square of Marina Mist card stock, and I used the Game Spinner Hands from the Occasions Mini Catalog. For more tips and tricks on using the Game Spinner Hands, see this card I made.

Finally, the sentiment at the bottom is from So Happy for You from the Sale-a-bration catalog, stamped in Chocolate Chip ink.

Bring on the Cake Birthday Card with Pom Pom Trim

I LOVE the Bring on the Cake stamp set and there are so many images that look great embossed. Here, I used the “Happy Birthday” stamp, with Chocolate Chip Craft ink and heat embossed with Clear Embossing Powder. Then, I colored in the letters using Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight, Certainly Celery, and Pumpkin Pie Markers.

The buttons play off the paper and ink colors: Daffodil Delight and Old Olive from the Designer Buttons Brights Collection and a clear heart from Bitty Buttons. I cut out a Melon Mambo heart and attached it to the back of the clear button to make it look pink. All the buttons are threaded with white string. I colored one of the strings with Melon Mambo Marker to give a pop of color. Tiny Glue Dots secure the buttons to the card stock.

For the card base, I used Early Espresso card stock and American Crafts Patterned paper. The Daffodil Delight Pom Pom Trim was attached along the lower edge of Early Espresso card stock with Tombow Mono Multi Glue. Just run a bead of glue, lay the pom pom trim down and press lightly until it sticks. That layer is attached to the base with Stampin Dimensionals.

Inside, I used 2 more sentiments from Bring on the Cake, stamped in Early Espresso ink and colored in with Markers. I used some of the patterned paper and Melon Mambo card stock inside to match the front.

Merry Crittermas Cute Christmas Card

I don’t know what I like best about this little guy, but he is just too cute! I think it’s his little teeth that get me. This is a simple enough holiday card to make in bulk, with enough interest to keep me from getting bored. Each element can be prepped in advance and I can assemble them quickly if I plan ahead.

The card base is Cherry Cobbler, layered with Jolly Holiday DSP. I cut Old Olive card stock with the Top Note Die in the Big Shot, and wrapped some 1 1/4″ Riding Hood Red Striped Grosgrain Ribbon (from the clearance rack) around the front.

Next, I stamped the sentiment from Bright Christmas (Holiday Mini) in Cherry Cobbler ink on Very Vanilla card stock, punched out with the Decorative Label Punch. I sponged some Old Olive Craft ink around the edges, sprinkled on some Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder, and heated it to give a glittery effect without the glitter.

For the main image, I stamped this adorable little beaver from Merry Crittermas onto Watercolor Paper with Black Stazon ink and colored it in using SU Markers and the Aquapainter.I use this technique for easy watercoloring.

To make his teeth extra white, I used the Signo White Gel Pen. Then, I trimmed the image out and attached it with stampin’ dimensionals to a Very Vanilla 1 3/4″ Circle that I embossed with the Square Lattice Embossing Folder and Big Shot. That is layered onto a Cherry Cobbler 2 3/8″ Scallop Circle, dotted with the Signo White Gel Pen and Paper Piercer.
