Sweet Baby

Its a wrap occasions baby gift card

The It’s a Wrap Occasions stamp set is perfect for stamping labels to wrap around candy treats.  That’s where the name comes from, but like how cute it is as a card!  If you look up the stamp set on page 47 of the Stampin’ Up! catalog you’ll notice that this card looks similar to the cute treat bag pictured there.

Crumb Cake cardstock makes a great base and allows the other elements to really take center stage.  I used the Wild Wasabi and Night of Navy markers to color the stamp so I could create the two tone effect.  I stamped it again in Wild Wasabi to trim out ‘sweet baby’ and pop it up with a Stampin’ Dimensional.

I tied a linen thread bow in the button and used a glue dot to glue it down.  The Bashful Blue banner behind was clipped with the corner of a square punch to create the flag ends.

World Treasures Personalized Stationary

World Treasures stationary kit close up

Inspired by the sample on page 147 of the catalog and the birthday gifts my sister made for her friends,  this personalized stationary kit is fabulous.  I chose the International Bazaar Designer Series Paper as a jumping off point.  The paper dictated the colors I used: Pacific Point and More Mustard.  It’s a vibrant palette, don’t you think?

(Scroll to the bottom of the post for the complete supply list linked to the product picture and description.)

World Treasures stationary kit peacock

I stamped the peacock from the Stampin’ Up! World Treasures stamp set in Pacific Point and colored in some feathers with my Many Marvelous Markers.  Now here’s the fun part, which is really hard to detect in the photos.  After cropping the peacock out with the Labels Collection Framelit, I covered the stamped and colored label with Shimmer Paint using a sponge daubers.   It gives it such soft, classy sparkle.

I stamped the peacock again, cut out the body and adhered that with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Then I adhered the peacock lable to a larger label cut from Pacific Point cardstock.  Stampin’ Up!’s coordinating papers and inks makes crafting so satisfying – you always get great results because it matches!

World Treasures stationary kit personalized

The interior has a pocket for holding stationary and envelopes.  I used the Scallop Border Ribbon Punch to finish off the edge of my pocket.  You’ll notice that I didn’t plan ahead correctly and I cut my paper so that my design is sideways.  Don’t make the same mistake I did – double check your design orientation before you cut!  What’s the saying?  “Measure twice, cut once.”  I should have checked twice and then cut.

World Treasures stationary kit

Above is a close up of the stationary.  I used creamy, lightweight paper cut in half  and stamped in Pacific Point with a Monogram Stamp to create the stationary.  The matching envelopes are Very Vanilla envelopes stamped with the flower from the same World Treasures stamp set as the peacock.

Below is a picture of the back, layered with the matching More Mustard cardstock.  The cardstock layer adds sturdiness and also covers the end of the Victorian Crochet Lace ties.

These stationary sets are great gifts for friends for birthdays or Christmas.  Include a Personalized stamp with the matching stamp pad and it’s a gift they will enjoy for a very long time.

Apothecary Art Birthday Card

apothecary art birthday flower card 2 The Natural Composition specialty paper is a perfect backdrop for the bright Melon Mambo label.  I hope you can see the beautiful glossy, raised note pattern on this paper.  I used the decorated jar on page 137 of the Stampin’ Up! catalog as inspiration for this card.  Do you need a catalog?  Send me a note and I’ll get one out to you.

To create the label I inked up the midsize Apothecary Art stamp with Wild Wasabi and then went over the border with a Chocolate Chip marker before stamping on Whisper White cardstock.  The stamped label was cropped out with the Big Shot Die-cutting Machine and Labels Collection Framelits.  I layered the label on Melon Mambo cardstock which was also die cut with a framelit a size larger.

To make the flowers I punched out the four-petal flowers from the Itty Bitty Punch Pack and curled the petals to the center.  I used Multipurpose Liquid Glue to glue to flowers together and to adhere the flowers to the label.  To finish the flowers, I added a bitty adhesive-backed pearl to the centers.

The happy birthday sentiment was stamped on Chocolate Chip cardstock with Whisper White Craft ink and embossed with white embossing powder for a crisp look.  The ends were flagged with the 1″ square punch.  For tips on creating banners and flag ends, watch this short video.

You’re Amazing Birthday Balloon

you're amazing birthday balloon card

This beautiful card was designed and made by my Stampin’-guru sister Kari.  She started with the hot-air balloon from You’re Amazing stamp set and stamped it with Always Artichoke on sponged Bashful Blue clouds on Whisper White card stock.  Embossing the balloon with the Square Lattice Embossing Folder was brilliant!

you're amazing birthday balloon card balloon The corners were quarter punched with a circle punch and then the piece was adhered to a Not Quite Navy mat with added brads in the corners.

Happy Birthday was stamped with Pacific Point on Crumb Cake cardstock.  Pacific Point is bright but stamped on the darker Crumb Cake it blends nicely with Not Quite Navy.  She then ran ‘happy birthday’ through the Big Shot with the Apothecary Labels framelit and added reinforcements with a 1/2″ punched Always Artichoke circles.
