Picture Perfect Birthday

Yesterday, I shared 3 cards created with the Picture Perfect Birthday stamp set and the Tutti-Fruitti Cards and Envelopes.  The Tutti-Fruitti Cards and Envelopes are a free item available with a $50 purchase during Sale-a-Bration.  You can easily mix & match the products used on all of the cards and I’ve provided a complete supply list at the end of this post.

This is the final card in the series and features a layout from CAS(e) this Sketch.

Picture Perfect Birthday CTS259

I started with a card base from the Tutti-Fruitti cards in Pool Party.  Next, I cut a 2″ x 5″ strip of Picture Perfect Birthday Designer Series Paper and punched the end with the banner punch.  The sentiment was stamped in Versamark on Basic Black card stock, then sprinkled with White Emboss Powder before being heated with the heat tool.  Once cool to the touch, the sentiment was punched with the Starburst punch.  I added a bit of the Lemon-Lime striped ribbon to the back before adhering it to the front of the card with dimensionals.   As a final accent, I added a few metallic enamel shapes to the front of the card.

Magical Day Dragon

Magical Day Dragon

Well, this is my final card with the Magical Day stamp set that I’ll be sharing this week.  Although, I definitely think I’ll have to revisit it again soon.  The dragon from today’s card was actually created using leftovers from the first 2 cards.  Once I was finished with my Brusho block (see the video here), I swirled the remaining colors together and stamped onto a scrap of watercolor paper.  The result was a mottled blue-green-yellow that easily reminded me of dragon skin.  So, I decided to stamp the dragon image with Black Memento ink over the watercolor paper, then die-cut.  A little bit of shading was added with some of the Stampin’ Blends.   I did the same thing to create the flames, except I used a combination of the red and yellow Brushos.

The background paper and the strips of paper are from the Myths & Magic Specialty Designer Series Paper.  I also used a strip of the Myths & Magic Glimmer paper to add a fun pop of shimmer.  The greeting is from the Perennial Birthday stamp set and was stamped in Dapper Denim ink, then cut apart to fit properly.

You’ll find the complete list of supplies below.

Today, I’m sharing another card featuring the Magical Day stamp set.  If you missed the video from yesterday, be sure to check it out to see how this background effect was created with Brusho Crystal Color.  SEE THE VIDEO HERE

The real star of this card is the unicorn.  Don’t you just love this whimsical image?  I colored the unicorn with Stampin’ Blends and topped it with Clear with of Stella for shimmer.  The front of the card features a peek-a-boo die cut, so that the unicorn is actually on the inside of the card.

The greeting and sparkles were stamped directly over the watercolor wash background with Black Memento ink.

Card in a Box Featuring Bubble Over

This week at TGIF Challenges, we definitely have a challenge for you!  We are featuring a fun & fancy card fold called Card in a Box.  It’s a little more involved, but it is sure to delight the recipient.  Our design team had a lot of fun with this challenge and we’ve provided several samples and a video tutorial on the blog.  Be sure to check it out and play along with us by uploading your creations.TGIF144
One of my early favorites from the Occasions catalog was the Bubble Over stamp set & dies.  However, I’m just now getting around to using them.  I began my card by stamping and die-cutting multiple bottles, caps, labels, etc.  Honestly, that was the most time-consuming part of creating this card.  For the card base, I followed this tutorial from Splitcoaststampers.  This tutorial requires 12″ x 12″ paper, so you’ll definitely want to keep that in mind.  There are many tutorials available that use 8-1/2″ x 11″ paper, so you can always alter this project to fit what you have on hand.

 Once you have your card base put together and all of your bits & pieces stamped and ready, the assembly will go rather quickly.  I laid my pieces out on a 3″ x 3″ piece of paper to determine my layout before adhering the bottles in place.  Strips of window sheets were used to float the “celebrate” die-cut and a few of the bottle caps.

I love the Bubble & Fizz Designer Series paper so much!  The bright, cheerful colors and whimsical patterns are just so much fun.  I wanted to feature more of the patterns on my card without making it too busy.  You’ll notice some small strips of banner-end papers on the greeting flap.  It’s a great way to feature multiple patterns!  The greeting is from the Bubble Over stamp set and fits this card perfectly.
