Summer Smooch Birthday

Summer Smooches and a butterfly make a great birthday card combination!  Remember this project?  It was actually inspired by the card below that I created in My Digital Studio.  The background looks like a paper project – doesn’t it?

The background was made in My Digital Studio with the added punch of a birthday greating and Big Shot butterfly with rhinestone.  The digital designer papers from the Summer Smooches Suite digital content CD and the digital flag punch make this background bright and extra special.  This special release CD is available until April 30th.

I created the background on a 8 1/2 x 11 sheet and then cut the page in quarters to make duplicate cards.  Here’s just the quarter page.  This background could be used for any occasion-don’t you think?

Stamp Sets:  Perfect Punch #117022 wood-mount, #120516 clear-mount
Paper: Island Indigo #122923, Whisper White #100730, Peach Parfait #119794, Kiwi Kiss #122926

Stampin’ Up! MORE Blossoms

Where do you get your inspiration?  Have you ever used a card that you made previously to inspire a new creation?  I used this card  as a jumping off point for today’s Mixed Bunch card.

Aren’t these colors beautiful?  Wisteria Wonder, Peach Parfait and Pool Party – beautiful!  I love the soft colors and elegance of this card and it was surprisingly simple to make.

The Whisper White background is embossed with the Big Shot and Finial Press Textured Embossing Folder.  The blossoms were stamped tone on tone.  And aren’t the lovely pearls the perfect touch?

Stamps: Mixed Bunch #125537 clear-mount or #125535 wood-mount

Stampin’ Up! Summer Smooches Blossom

The bright colors of the Summer Smooches Designer Series Paper is perfect for punched blossom inspiration!  And don’t you love the way the Stampin’ Up! patterned paper works together for perfect designing?

I chose Tangerine Tango ink for the blossom and Island Indigo for the blossom center and card base.  Orange and blue are across from each other on the color wheel and are complementary colors.  Therefore, the combination creates high interest.  Crumb Cake cardstock is a great neutral which keeps this card from being too bright.  No need for sunglasses!

In the center of the blossom is a clear bitty button with linen thread.  So cute!  The blossom and the center are popped up with dimensionals.

 Card Recipe:
Stamps: Mixed Bunch clear-mount or wood-mount
Paper: Summer Smooches designer series paper, Island Indigo card stock, Crumb Cake card stock,  Whisper White cs
Ink: Tangerine Tango, Island Indigo
Extras:   Blossom punch, Bitty Buttons, Linen Thread, Dimensionals,

 Enjoy!  Julie
