Special Delivery For Your Birthday

Birthday Memories Special Delivery

We are featuring Birthday Cards on the Stylin’ Stampin’ INKSpiration blog today.  Quite a few of our designers participated in this challenge, so be sure to check out the wide variety of Birthday Cards we created to inspire you.

When I first flipped through the Annual Catalog, the Birthday Memories Suite really jumped out at me.  I loved the vintage-look, the bright colors, and the intricate designs.  It was immediately at the top of my wish list.  Now that I’ve had time to play with the products, I love the Birthday Memories Suite even more!

Birthday Memories Special Delivery

The bundle for this suite includes the Birthday Delivery Stamp Set, Birthday Memories Designer Series Paper, and the Birthday Friends Framelits Dies.  What I love most about this bundle is that the dies coordinate with some of the images on the Designer Series Paper.   That is how I got the image of the little girl.  Isn’t she adorable?

Birthday Memories Special Delivery

I’ve also used some new favorites on this card:  the Pacific Point 1/4″ Stitched-Edge Ribbon and the Starburst Punch.  The ribbon is a soft cotton and very easy to tie.  I like that it coordinates so well with the entire Birthday Memories suite.  The Starburst punch is a new addition to our punches and will work with a large variety of the stamps in the catalog.  I love that it is so quick, easy, and versatile!

You’ll definitely want to add the Birthday Memories Suite of products to your next order.

Everyone has a birthday and these products will enable you to create many, many birthday cards.  You can shop anytime in my online store using the product links below.

Control Freaks Blog Tour: Featuring the Color Theory Suite

Control Freaks Welcome

Welcome to the Control Freaks monthly blog tour! This month’s theme is New Catalog.

My blog is sandwiched nicely in the middle of this blog hop, so you may have just visited the blog of the extremely talented, Debbie Henderson.  She’s always got such wonderful ideas and I love her work.  Be sure to scroll to the end of this post to follow along to your next stop.

Color Theory Suite Cards with Custom Holder

It’s been many years since I have had a Monthly Stamping Club, but this month marks its return.  I wanted to create a project that would delight my newly committed club members, most of whom are card makers.  I’ve been working on this project for the last month and it has finally come together just the way I envisioned it.  The project begins with a simple card holder tied together with some beautiful Crushed Curry 3/8″ Mini Chevron Ribbon.

Color Theory Suite Cards with Custom Holder

When you untie the ribbon, the holder opens to expose two inserts holding 2 cards and 2 envelopes each.  All of the cards feature the Colorful Seasons Stamp Set, Seasonal Layers Thinlits Dies, Color Theory Designer Series Paper, and the Glitter Enamel Dots.

Color Theory Suite Cards with Custom Holder

I created a card for each season by choosing a different color scheme for each one.  The colors in the Color Theory Suite are Crushed Curry, Dapper Denim, Old Olive, and Berry Burst.  As you can see, there is a lot of variety in this product line.

If you’d like to get a closer look at the individual cards, I’ll be sharing them all this week on my Instagram account, thestampdoc.  I’ll also be sharing information in my weekly newsletter on how you can get the tutorial and card supplies as a gift with purchase through July 31st.  You will also be able to purchase just the tutorial if you would like to use it for personal use.  Don’t forget to subscribe to my newsletter to learn more about this project.

 

Your next stop on this blog tour is to the other Melissa……Melissa Davies!  I’m sure she’ll be blowing us away with another amazing project this month.

A Little Wild #FMS292

I’m slowly starting to use more of my products from the new catalog.  For today’s card, I used the sketch below from Freshly Made Sketches and paired it with the A Little Wild stamp set and Bundle of Love Specialty Designer Series Paper.

FMS292

The paper in the Bundle of Love Specialty Designer Series Paper is heavyweight and features a gold foil design on one side and a pink/vanilla (or blue/vanilla) pattern on the opposite side.  It is stunning, to say the least!  I cut my larger circles with the Big Shot and the Layering Circles Framelits Dies.  The smaller circle was cut from the Thick Very Vanilla card stock with the Stitched Shapes Framelits.

A Little Wild #FMS292

 

I stamped the little elephant image in Basic Gray Archival ink onto Blushing Bride card stock, then die cut it with the coordinating die.  Some additional shading was adding with the Watercolor Pencils (mainly Basic Gray, Melon Mambo, and Whisper White) along with the Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush.  A few Blushing Bride enamel shapes were added as a final touch.

 

A Little Wild #FMS292

This was such an easy card to create and could easily be done with the Soft Sky paper to make a baby boy card.  I can’t wait to play around with this combo some more!

I’ll be linking to 2 different people this week, so be sure to check them out!

#TGIFC112 Let’s Hear It For The Boys: No Bones About It

No Bones About It

Sad news this week……Mojo Monday has posted a final sketch.  I’ve always loved playing along with their weekly sketches and have found that they have stretched my creativity over the years.  However, I can’t begin to tell you how excited I am about joining the TGIF Challenges team recently.  The talent and commitment of this group is nothing short of amazing.  They always inspire me with their weekly designs and this week is certainly no exception.  You can click on the challenge picture below to see what the other designers created.  As always, we invite you to play along with us. We love to see your creations!

I no longer have a little boy, but I still love the dinosaurs in the No Bones About It stamp set.  I’ll find any excuse to make a card with this set, so this challenge was perfect for me.  I paired the No Bones About It with the Naturally Eclectic Designer Series Paper, using the final Mojo Monday sketch.  The color combo just screams “BOY” to me:  Night of Navy, Lemon Lime Twist, Soft Sky, and Tranquil Tide.

No Bones About It

Don’t you just love the playful mixture of patterns in the Naturally Eclectic Designer Series Paper?

For the focal point, I stamped the dinosaur in Lemon Lime Twist and Tranquil Tide inks, then fussy cut him.  The greeting was stamped in Night of Navy and Lemon Lime Twist, then die cut with the Big Shot and the Stitched Shapes Framelits.  I added a tiny bit of Lemon Lime Twist 1/4″ Ombre Ribbon behind the focal point to help it stand out a little more.

Oh So Eclectic #SSINKCS46 Sketch Challenge

Oh So Eclectic
By now you’ve had the chance to drool over the 2017-2018 Annual Catalog and I’m sure you were blown away by the colorful designs on the front cover.  Today’s card features several products from the catalog cover, including the Oh So Eclectic stamp set and the coordinating Naturally Eclectic Designer Series Paper.  I used this week’s sketch from Stylin’ Stampin’ INKSpiration for my layout.  Be sure to visit the SSINK blog and play along with us this week.
Oh So Eclectic
At first glance, this card probably looks fairly simple.  However, it took some work to line everything up properly.  I had to use a Stamp-a-ma-jig and a little masking technique to create the layered flowers.  It is rare for me to dust off the Stamp-a-ma-jig.  I’m very much an “eyeball it” kind-of girl, but I could not line these flowers up correctly without it.  Perhaps, you’ll have better luck!  If you are interested in seeing a video on how I stamped these images, just leave me a comment on this post.  I’m hoping to get some video time in this week.
Oh So Eclectic
You’ll notice that there is a bit of texture to these images.  It really adds a watercolor look to the card.  I did stamp off the ink one time for each of the “solid” flower stamps to create a lighter color, before stamping the line-art stamp over it at full-strength.

If you’d like to add the Oh So Eclectic stamp set to your collection, you’ll find a complete list of supplies at the end of this post.
