Bring on the Cake stamp-a-stack

This is a card I made for a recent stamp-a-stack for a lovely lady who wanted to share stamping on her birthday – what a simply wonderful idea!  Don’t you agree?

This is the other card that was inspired by one of my favourite cards here.  I began with the colours Very Vanilla, Blushing Bride, Crumb Cake and Certainly Celery.  We used the Scallop Trim border punch with a strip of Crumb Cake cardstock, which was layered with another strip of Certainly Celery DSP (from the Subtles DSP Paper Stack).  We stamped the sentiment from Bring on the Cake on the Very Vanilla cardstock and sponged the edges.

For the flowers, we used Silhouette Sentiments with the Blushing Bride and Certainly Celery marker pens.  The background of the flower circle was stamped in Crumb Cake with a “stamped off” stamp from the retired SAB stamp set, Bliss.  For the border around the flower circle, we punched the Fancy Flower punch with Crumb Cake and Certainly Celery cardstock.  A row of paper piercing finished off the card.

My Mother-In-Law’s Invites

My mother-in-law had a big birthday recently – for politeness, I won’t say which big number 🙂  We had a simply special celebration at a restaurant with family and friends – it was a wonderful night – and this is the invite I made to send out to everyone.

I fell in love with this card here and it inspired me to make the invitations.  It also inspired me to make another card, which I’ll post shortly.

To make this card, I used the colours Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla, Blushing Bride, Early Espresso and Certainly Celery.  I popped the Blushing Bride background through the Big Shot with my Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder, then I sponged the edges with Crumb Cake.  I used the Scallop Trim border punch with a strip of Crumb Cake cardstock to layer along the bottom of my stamped image, together with a strip of Certainly Celery striped DSP (from the Subtles DSP Paper Stacks). 

I then used the retired Sale-a-bration Bliss stamp set to stamp in Crumb Cake around the edge of my Very Vanilla cardstock (and sponged the edges with Crumb Cake ink).  I tore the top right corner and sponged the tear in Crumb Cake ink.  Then I stuck a snippet of Newsprint DSP under the corner.

Using Silhouette Sentiments and my Certainly Celery and Blushing Bride marker pens, I used marker-to-rubber and stamped the flowers in a row.  The bird was then stamped in Early Espresso ink.

For the sentiment,  I punched some Certainly Celery cardstock with the Decorative Label punch.  Then I stamped with Bliss in “stamped off” Crumb Cake ink and added a flower from Silhouette Sentiments using my marker pens.  The “You’re Invited” is from a great favourite stamp set of mine – Sincere Salutations – and is stamped in Early Espresso ink.  Again, I sponged the edges of the punched out Extra-Large Oval in Crumb Cake ink.

Perfect Plum Pony Party

On the weekend my daughter was invited to a school friend’s birthday party.  My Bella met birthday-girl Bella by chance at a local park before they even started school, so it’s lovely for Bella to be invited to Bella’s 6th birthday!  This is the card I made for her:

It’s hard to believe no one will be able to buy Perfect Plum from Stampin’ Up! anymore after the end of this month (if not sooner!).   And I’d forgotten how lovely a colour it is.  For this card I used Perfect Plum, Pale Plum and Certainly Celery (and some retired Certainly Celery DSP).

Although we’ll have no more Perfect Plum come September, SNEEK PEEK we will have this gorgeous butterfly – a Big Shot Bigz Die – Beautiful Butterflies.  I sponged the edge of the butterfly with Perfect Plum ink and edged it with Dazzling Diamonds.  A few pearls finished it off.

I think I love this pony as much as my daughter!  There are so many variations to make with her that I must keep making more cards to try more combinations!  For this pony, I stamped in Basic Black ink and the used my blender pens to colour in the main and tail with Perfect Plum, Pale Plum and Certainly Celery inks.  I then cut the pony out and stuck her on a sponged background (Bashful Blue and Certainly Celery) with dimensionals.

The sentiment is also from Pony Party and I stamped it in Perfect Plum and punched it out using the Word Window punch.  I punched out a piece of Pale Plum cardstock with the Large Oval punch and sponged the edges with Perfect Plum ink.  Then I punched out a piece of Perfect Plum cardstock and layered them together.  Three pearls finished off the sentiment.

I really loved how this card turned out.  I based it off a card I’d made earlier here, but I really love this colour combination!  If you love it too, please email me asap to order your Perfect Plum before it’s gone forever!!

Echoes of Kindness

I love the sentiment that comes with the Level 2 Hostess stamp set, Echoes of Kindess.  And the flowers that come with it are beautiful too.  I must use them more often! 

I’ve used the colours Perfect Plum, Pale Plum and Certainly Celery for this card.  I’m happy with the colour combo, but not happy with my colour choice for the felt flower.  The brown just doesn’t do it for me.  Next time, I’ll improve it!

Priceless 2nd Birthday

Well, here is another toddler birthday card!  We have had quite a few birthdays lately 🙂  Sorry, I’m afraid we haven’t got a 6th birthday coming up … yet!

I made this card a few weeks ago and forgot I had taken a photo of it!  Now I’ve found the photo, I can share it with you.  For this card, I’ve used the stamp sets Priceless, Everyday Flexible Phrases, Fun & Fast Notes and Best Friends Numbers for this card.  I’ve forgotten how useful Everyday Flexible Phrases is!  I’ve used the colours Pretty In Pink and Certainly Celery.  They go so well together!  And they make such a pretty birthday card for a beautiful little 2 year old girl, don’t you think?

I just love textured cardstock so much !!!
