Stampin’ Up! Dino Days Birthday Card

Good Morning! Today I’m sharing a birthday card made with the Stampin’ Up! Dino Days photopolymer stamp set and the Dinoroar designer series paper. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

The card design was inspired by the Paper Players Sketch Challenge #483. Here is the sketch:

I cut two strips of the geometric Dinoroar designer series paper and adhered them to the background DSP and to a Garden Green card base.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Dino Days stamp set in Garden Green ink on a Whisper White panel. I used the dinosaur footprint stamp to stamp a trail in Crumb Cake ink and cut it out with the largest stitched oval from the Stitched Shapes Dies. I cut grass in Garden Green using the Special Day Dies and then cut the bottom with the same stitched oval die. I adhered the grass to the bottom of the oval with multipurpose liquid glue. I cut a mat from Lovely Lipstick card stock using the largest scalloped label in the Layering Ovals dies and adhered it to the back of the oval panel.

I stamped two dinosaurs from the Stampin’ Up! Dino Days stamp set in Balmy Blue ink on Whisper White. I stamped two sets of the back fins in Lovely Lipstick ink on Whisper White. I cut these pieces out with the coordinating dies and adhered them together. I colored the eyes with a black journaling pen. I adhered one of the dinosaurs on the oval panel with dimensionals. Then I adhered the oval panel on the card front with dimensionals.

I adhered a strip of the geometric Dino Roar DSP to a Whisper White panel and adhered the second dinosaur on top. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up! Dino Days bundle includes the Dino Days photopolymer stamp set and the coordinating Dino Dies. The Dinoroar designer series paper was just added to the Sale-A-Bration FREE with $50 purchase list – Yay!! And did you know that some of the dinosaur images in the Dinoroar DSP can also be cut with the Dino Dies?

Stampin’ Up! To A Wild Rose Hello Card

Good Morning! Did you hear that they added new items to Saale-A-Bration? We are in the final week and ten items from the Annual Catalog have been tagged as FREE Sale-A-Bration items with a minimum $50 purchase. And today’s card uses two of these items. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used. Important: Note that the Sale-A-Bration item numbers are different!!

I cut a panel of the Woven Threads designer series paper and adhered it to a Rococo Rose card base. I cut another panel of Woven Threads DSP using the large label from the Wild Rose Dies and adhered it to the front with snail. I stamped the outline rose from the Stampin’ Up! To A Wild Rose photopolymer stamp set in Rococo Rose ink on a Whisper White panel. Then I stamped the fuller image in Rococo Rose after stamping off once. Finally I stamped the smallest image in Rococo Rose after stamping off once. I used the matching die cut to cut it out. With the Wild Rose Dies, I cut out two leaf clusters from Mossy Meadow and two bud clusters from Rococo Rose.

I stamped the hello sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! To A Wild Rose stamp set on a Whisper White panel with Rococo Rose ink and cut it out with the smallest Stitched Nested Labels die. I arranged the die cuts on the large label and adhered the leaf and bud clusters and label with multipurpose liquid glue and the rose with dimensionals. I finished off the front with a lace ribbon bow and a Rococo Rose faceted gem

I decorated the inside by adding a strip of the Woven Threads DSP to the bottom of a Whisper White Panel and adhering it to the inside of the card.

The Wild Rose Dies and Woven Threads designer series paper are two of the new items that were added to Sale-A-Bration. Important: Note that the Sale-A-Bration item numbers are different!!

Stampin’ Up! Vibrant Vases with Flowering Foils Just For You Card

Good Morning! Today I am sharing another pretty card made with the Sale-A-Bration Flowering Foils specialty designer series paper and featuring the lovely sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Vibrant Vases photopolymer stamp set. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

My card layout was inspired by Sunday Stamps SSC226. Check out the inspiration and other entries for this pretty sketch.

I started by embossing a panel of Whisper White card stock with the Scripty embossing folder. I adhered it to a Whisper white mat and wrapped a length of Metallic Edge Petal Pink ribbon around it, securing it in the back.

I picked a flower from the large floral paper in the Flowering Foils specialty designer series paper and colored it with Petal Pink, So Saffron, and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends. I fussy cut the flower and adhered it to the card front with multipurpose liquid glue. I adhered the panel to the front of a Petal Pink card base with dimensionals.

I stamped the just for you sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Vibrant Vases stamp set on a panel of Thick Whisper White card stock in Versamark Ink. I sprinkled it with copper embossing powder and heat set. I cut it out with the small scalloped rectangle from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies and adhered it to the card front with dimensionals. I made a bow with a length of the Metallic Edge Petal Pink ribbon and adhered it to the top of the card with glue dots. I added a Champagne rhinestone to the label.

I colored another flower from the Flowering Foils specialty designer series paper and trimmed it before adhering it to the bottom corner of a Whisper White panel. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card with snail.

The sentiments in the Stampin’ Up! Vibrant Vases stamp set are done with a very elegant font that goes well with the Sale-A-Bration Flowering Foils DSP. The shine of the foil outline images is wonderful and the paper is so easy to color with the Stampin’ Blends, making for a very special card.

Stampin’ Up! Thoughtful Blooms Thank You Card

Good Morning! Today I have thank you card made with the pretty Stampin’ Up! Thoughtful Blooms photopolymer stamp set and the coordinating Small Bloom punch. Both of these items are Sale-A-Bration items that are FREE with a qualifying purchase. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

This card was inspired by the color palette in the Fab Friday #184 Challenge. Check out the inspiration cards and other challenge entries:

I started with a panel of Pretty Peacock Woven Heirlooms designer series paper and adhering it to a Pretty Peacock mat. I adhered the panel to a Mint Macaron card base with dimensionals. I stamped four flowers from the Stampin’ Up! Thoughtful Blooms stamp set using Rococo Rose ink on a panel of Petal Pink card stock. I punched them out with the Small Bloom punch.

I stamped the large leafy swirl from the Stampin’ Up! Thoughtful Blooms stamp set in Mint Macaron on a panel of Thick Whisper White card stock. I cut it out with the second largest Stitched So Sweetly die. I stamped the small flowers in Rococo Rose ink and the thank you sentiment in Mint Macaron ink. I wrapped it in Mint Macaron twine and made a bow. I adhered Rococo Rose faceted gems to the Petal Pink flowers and adhered them to the panel with dimensionals. I finished it off with a Pretty Peacock faceted gem and adhered it to the card front with dimensionals.

I decorated the inside by stamping the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Thoughtful Blooms stamp set in Mint Macaron ink on a Whisper White panel. I stamped part of the large swirl in the upper right corner, also using Mint Macaron ink and added two Rococo Rose small flowers. I stamped the center of the last punched flower with Rococo Rose and adhered it to the panel with multipurpose liquid glue. I trimmed the bottom with a strip of the Woven Threads DSP and adhered it to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up Thoughtful Blooms stamp set is a Sale-A-Bration stamp set that is FREE with a $50 purchase. The Small Blooms punch coordinates with the stamps and is also a Sale-A-Bration item that is FREE with a $100 purchase. Sale-A-Bration is going strong, but will end on March 31 and these items are still available!
