A Pool Party Cycle Celebration Birthday Card

cycle celebration birthday card stampingjulie cards stampin up I love bicycle stamps!  And I wanted the Cycle Celebration stamp set the minute I saw it in the new catalog!  This bicycle is adorable!!  So cute!

And yes, I know I’ve been missing in action on the website, but rest assured that if you email me, call or text me at the email address or phone number at the top of the website I’m always available to you!  I will not bore you with everything that has been going on since June.  It has been crazy!!! – moving, surgeries, a funeral, a birth, etc.  But things are starting to settle down and I’m hopeful I’ll be in a new house in about two months and I’ll be able to set up my new stamp studio and share it with you!  Yay!

The inspiration for the design and colors in this card came from page 10 of the Stampin’ Up! catalog.  If you look at the picture you may be surprised that gift packaging on the birthday ensemble could be the inspiration for a card, but notice how I stamped the tag and repeated the bicycle pattern across the card – all inspired by the packaging.

The ruffle ribbon is the perfect border for the ‘road’ these cycles are rolling on!  And it’s super easy to work with.  I used a bit of SNAIL adhesive on the ribbon to set it in place and then taped it behind the Quatrefancy designer series paper.

Cycle Celebration Sweet Birthday Card

cycle celebration sweet birthday card www.stampingjulie.com
Easily, one of my very favorite new stamp sets is the Cycle Celebration.  Fun, fun, fun.  I love the bicycle in this set but I also love the candles.  Well, really, I love just about everything about this set.

I wanted to group three bright candles together as the focal point for this card so I used the Quatrefancy Designer Series Paper for color inspiration and chose Island Indigo, Pumpkin Pie and Strawberry Slush for my candles.  Using Paper Snips I had no trouble trimming these out in a snap.

Also, I added a bit of Dazzling Diamonds glitter shimmer to the flames with 2-way glue.  And I added a sliver of dimensionals under the tops of the candles so they would stand out from the card a little.

Because I chose the bright colors for the candles and I wanted them to stand out on the card I chose a paper from the pack with a monochrome pattern to complement the candles and the message.  The paper backed with a piece of Island Indigo cardstock is lifted off the card with dimensionals.

To create the “sweet birthday” oval tag I stamped with the Strawberry Slush and then heat embossed it with clear embossing powder mixed with a touch of Dazzling Diamonds Glitter.  Then clipping it out was super fast and easy with the oval punch.

MDS Comfort Cafe Birthday Card

Digital Tuesday – A MDS Happy Birthday

MDS Comfort Cafe Birthday Card

This is the fabulous card my sister gave to me for my birthday.  She designed these 5″ x 7″ birthday cards in MDS and then sent them straight from the software to Stampin’ Up! to be printed.  The printed cards are really nice and they come with envelopes too.

She used the Comfort Café digital dsp for the background on the front, the back and the inside.  She added a Crumb Cake band across the middle front, a Very Vanilla decorative label punch and a Night of Navy happy birthday stamp from the Engraved Greetings digital stamp brush set.

MDS Comfort Cafe Birthday Card

After adding the background to the back she included a Night of Navy filled punch with her initials to personalize her creation.

She kept it simple on the inside with more dsp at the top and a ‘make it a good one’ greeting.

It’s the very last day to order from the retiring products list!!  In fact, the Spring catalog has already expired with this fun Sunshine and Sprinkles paper featured on today’s project.   But it isn’t too late to order the Pretty Postage stamp set and the Petal Card double punch!

Petal Card Double Punch
Petal Card Double Punch #119273

This cool punch punches the shape and creates the score lines all at once.  Fabulous!   You won’t be able to order it after today though.

I folded up the punched petal card and slipped the 1″ square punched happy birthday greeting from Pretty Postage inside.  I attached a loop of ribbon behind the tiny greeting to allow it to easily be pulled out.  The banner across the front is from the Itty Bitty Banners stamp set.

Spring Catalog Comes to an End!

Oh Whale Baby card
A Whale of a Baby Card

The spring catalog is coming to an end today, May 30th. That means Oh Whale will no longer be available.  Sad.  :'(  I love this little whale from the Oh Whale stamp set (wood-mount #129129 or clear-mount #129132) and the coordinating Happy Whale clearlits die that makes it so easy to trim out with lots of fun little accessories.   These happy stamps and accessories are all part of the Sunshine and Sprinkles Suite.

Here’s some more of my favorites from the Spring catalog…
