Swirly Bird Card

This card was fun to make!! Again I saw the idea for this on Pinterest.

img_0798-happy-day-wm

 

It is your basic A2 card with Whisper White cardstock for the base cut at 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 scored and 4 1/4. Then I wanted to showcase all the new Stampin’ Up in- colors. Each color was cut at 1″ x 3 3/4″ except for Flirty Flamingo which was cut at 1 1/4″ x 3 3/4″.  They were then adhered to another piece of Whisper White 4″ x 5 1/4″. I started with emerald Envy first at the bottom and worked my way up to the top.  So the next color is Peekaboo Peach, Dapper Denim, Sweet Sugarplum, and Flirty Flamingo. The top layer was also 4″ x 5 1/4″ using Whisper White. Using the wavy thinlit from the Swirly Scribbles Thinklits I put it in the middle of the paper.  I ran that through the Big Shot and ended up with three separate pieces. before adhering to the card I stamped Happy Day from the Perfectly Wrapped stamp set using Dapper Denim Ink on the right had side of the card. Then I used Stampin’ Dimensionals to put the outer pieces on the card while using the Fine Tip Glue to put the middle wavy section down onto the in-colored piece.

So, to recap how to assemble the card you adhere the in- color strips to one piece of Whisper White and using Stampin’ Dimenisonals to put that piece on the front of the card. Next, you cut out the next Whisper White piece with adding Stampin’ Dimensionals to the outside two pieces and adhering the wavy section using the Fine Tip Glue to the in-color paper.

If you would like to have this stamp set and Thinlit dies for yourself or both of them in a bundle  just click on the icon below and it will take you to my store where you can shop.

Till next time happy stamping!

Jars of Love

Good Morning!

Sorry I have been missing in action!  A lot has been going on in my life!  In fact I’m in Kansas City, MO, helping my daughter set up her classroom for the next school year which seems to be upon us already 🙂

Today’s card is another one from my Jars of Love class.

IMG_0821

I saw this example on Pinterest using Flirty Flamingo, Soft Sky, Dapper Denim, Emerald Envy, Blushing Bride, Early Espresso, Crushed Curry and Delightful Dijon ink colors.  I really had fun with this stamp set.  I enjoy the two step stamping of the larger flowers.

The larger flower was first stamped using Blushing Bride and then using Flirty Flamingo inks.  The next one was first stamped with Crushed Curry and then Delightful Dijon inks. They were cut out using the Jars of Love Framelits.  The smaller flowers were stamped in Soft Sky and Dapper Denim inks and cut out using the Jars of Love Framelits. The jar was stamped using Dapper Denim ink and then the inside was stamped using Soft Sky ink. The bow was stamped with Flirty Flamingo ink and cut out using the bow framelit.   Everything was stamped on Whisper White cardstock.

The top and bottom right corners of the Whisper White layer were rounded using the Project of LIfe corner rounder punch.

Once the jar was stamped and flowers were cut out I just placed them on the card without adhering them at first to see where I wanted to put the green leaves which were stamped using Emerald Envy ink. Once I got the leaves stamped on I started adhering the flowers using stampin dimensionals on some of them.

The “for you” was cut from the Mini Treat Bag framelits. It was cut out of Flirty Flamingo cardstock. The embossed layer used the new embossing folder Seaside and also used Flirty Flamingo cardstock.

Jars of Love

Happy Saturday!

Today I’m starting to share some of the cards we made in the Jars of Love class this month.  The first card I got the idea from Pinterest that was from one that  Emily Campbell posted.  I liked the way she used not only the Jars of Love stamp set but By the Sea DSP.

Jars of love #2

 

The colors used were soft sky for the base of the card and then the next layer was the DSP paper.  The flowers were stamped using Blushing Bride and Flirty Flamingo inks.  The leaves were stamped using Emerald Envy ink.  The mason jar was stamped on Soft Sky cardstock using Dapper Denim ink and then cut out with the framelits that go with it.

Assembly of the card on top of the DSP paper you put the doily and then the mason jar is put on with dimensionals.  The flowers and leave stems are also cut out by using the framelit that goes with the stamp.  The stems are put on using fine tip glue, and the flowers are put on the stems and leaves using dimensionals.  The sentiment is stamped on a piece of Very Vanilla paper 1″x 4″using Flirty Flamingo ink. You cut the flag at one end.   It is then put on the card using dimensionals.

IMG_0817This is a close up of the flowers.  The light color is Blushing Bride and then the Flirty Flamingo is stamped over it.  This is a two step stamp set.

Stamps: Jar of Love – 141587;  Everyday  Jars Framelits  – 141490; or the bundle – 142342 which includes stamps and framelits

Swirly Bird card

Good Morning,

Today I’m sharing another card from catalog launch.  We used the Swirly Bird stamp set and the Swirly Scribbles Thinlits along with the Timeless Textures stamp set.  I saw this idea on Pinterest and added a tweak here and there.

IMG_0768 swirly bird open house

A stamp from Timeless Textures was used for the hair in Peekaboo Peach. The eyes were cut from Dapper Denim, the nose from Flirty Flamingo, the mouth from Sweet Sugar Plum.  We only used a part of that thinlit for the mouth.  The tie was done in Emerald Envy.

The base of the card was Sweet Sugar Plum and then the next layer was Whisper White.  I wanted to show how you could be serious or cute with this bundle! My card class was going to be more on the serious side.

I will start showing those cards we did in the Swirly Bird class next time.
