Owl Occasions Birthday Wish

owl occasions birthday wish angle

This cute little owl from the Stampin’ Up! Owl Occasions in the Holiday Catalog is to die for!   He is so adorable you can hardly go wrong.  I stamped him in Tangerine Tango on this Early Espresso branch and added Summer Starfruit leaves.  I also added a touch of Perfect Plum to his front feathers with marker and adhesive-backed Googlie eyes, also from the Holiday Catalog.

The balloons were stamped in Tangerine Tango, Perfect Plum and Summer Starfruit and punched out with the 3/4″ circle punch. Then I knotted one end of some Pool Party bakers twine to attach below the balloons, then I tied all the strings together into his ‘hand’.  I used Multipurpose Liquid Glue to attach the knots and Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the balloons.

The scallops below the picture were created with the same color as the balloons.  I used the Scallop Punch and punched a longer section than I needed so I could trim it out where I wanted the scallops to land.  Doing this allowed me to stagger the scallops.

Enjoy! Julie

MDS Star: Krystal Roberts

digital mother's day card

Long time friend and stamping buddy, Krystal Roberts, is an MDS Rock Star!  She loves digital designing and scrapbooking.  Today I want to share a couple of cards she has made for special occasions.

Above is the mother’s day card she made for her mom.  She selected a fabulous designer series paper for the background and then repeated the pattern in the punched hearts.  So clever!  I also like the way she added the punched label behind Grandma to highlight her message.

Digital Photo Christmas Card

And look at this super stylish photo Christmas card!  I love the way her pictures are so prominent on this card.  And I love the beautiful font and design of the message – a very elegant design that highlights her cute family.

Stampin’ Up! Field Flower Love

field flower love card angle “Navy Pacific Sand” – the Splitcoaststampers Color Challenge!  I used a few interesting techniques on this Field Flowers love card including brayering the embossing folder and creating faux washi tape.

I started by stamping the stems in Sahara Sand, then in Night of Navy which creates a bit of shadow.  The flower outlines were then stamped in Night of Navy with Sahara Sand shading.  I then cut this with the largest framelit from the Apothecary Accents framelits set.

I used Pacific Point to sponge the interior of the flower and the edges of the panel, then a lighter sponge throughout.  Then I used Dazzling Details to add some heavy glitter to the center of the flowers.

Before embossing the Sahara Sand card front, I brayered Sahara Sand on the embossing folder so when I ran it through the Big Shot it creates a contrasting shadow.  The Apothecary flower panel was attached to the card front.

The faux washi tape was created with scotch tape and International Bazaar Designer Series Paper.  This is a technique I learned at the Stampin’ Up! Chattanooga Regional event.  I taped a section of pattern paper then ‘washed off’ the back of the pattern paper until it appears clear.

Stampin’ Up! Moving Forward Flower Baskets

moving forward flower pots thinking of you angleThis cheery friendship card was inspired by a card from the Stampin’ Up! demonstrator magazine (get your copy when you join today for only $99) and features the Ronald McDonald House Charities Stamp Set, Moving Forward, as shown on the inside back cover of the Stampin’ Up! catalog.  When you purchase this set, $3 will be donated to charity.

    Moving Forward stamp set

The petite basket is actually from the cute bicycle image.  Using a Early Espresso Marker, I colored and stamped only the basket three times.  Using the same method I stamped ‘Thinking of You’.  And lastly using markers again, I colored the flowers and stamped them in the baskets.  This video demonstrates how to stamp with markers.

Once the images are stamped, I centered a Collection Labels framelit over it, secured it with post it notes and ran it through the Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine.  The tiniest Basic Jewels Pearls were added to the flower centers.

 The card base is 6″x6″ square of Pumpkin Pie card stock, folded in half to produce a 3″x6″ card.  Matching Polka Dot Parade paper was trimmed into a flag banner.  View Monday’s video to see how to easily create a flag end with a square punch.  Or view it here.

Primrose Petals Stitched Satin Ribbon was added down the right side and tied with bakers twine before the label was adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals.   The Stitched Satin Ribbon is yummy.  Great colors, great look and fabulous to work with.  It’s super soft and pliable!  Love it!  And there’s no limit.  A free spool for EVERY $40 in ordered product.

Papillon Potpourri soft birthday card angle

A Happy Birthday to My Mother!

Papillon Potpourri soft birthday card angle

One of my all-time favorite color schemes is Pink Pirouette with crisp white and dramatic black.  It’s such an elegant look and feel.  So I used the combo for my mother’s birthday card.  (I think I used the same colors in her Mother’s Day card too.  Oops!)  I had to make sure she received her card in the mail first before I posted it here – so now that I’m sure she has it, I can share it with all of you!  I love making something special for her, because I love her, she deserves it, and because she loves my cards and appreciates them!

First, I stamped one of the smaller doilies from Delicate Doilies stamp set down the left side.  Then, using the Stamp-a-ma-jig for perfect placement, I stamped the sentiment from Blooming with Kindness in Black StazOn ink.  While I had my doily inked up with Pink Pirouette I stamped it on a scrap then stamped the butterfly from the Papillon Potpourri stamp set over that before punching it out with the Elegant Butterfly Punch.

I used the same punch to layer a black butterfly silhouette and punched out the small 4-petal flower in pink from the Itty Bitty Punch Pack.  An itty bitty black circle  topped with a bitty pearl was added to the tiny flower.  My bone folder aided me to curve the wings of the butterfly and the petals of the tiny flower.

The black delicate scallop edge was punched with the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border Punch and tucked under the stamped panel before the panel was adhered to the Pink Pirouette card base.
