A Crossword Puzzle Birthday Card

cross my heart crossword puzzle birthday card stampingjulie.com
I fell in love with this set when it was introduced in the spring catalog. I loved the little butterfly – I’m a sucker for butterflies, as you know! But I also loved the clever crossword puzzle greetings. I like crossword puzzles; not challenging crossword puzzles, just the easy ones that can be completed in a 15 minute break. I don’t do crossword puzzles for the challenge, I do them for the entertainment.

Even though a cute cupcake comes with the set and is a perfect pair for the happy birthday greeting, I still used the butterfly, because I LOVE butterflies!  (Have I mentioned that?)  And even though the crossword greeting has a whimsical feel, this card has a more sophisticated look I think because of the colors, the die-cut doily and the Natural Composition music paper.  My paper snips made easy work of clipping out the crossword.

The layout was inspired by the mother’s day card I showed you Sunday.

oh hello flower greeting card stampingjulie.com
This Oh, Hello! flower greeting card came together quickly with a sketch and dsp inspiration.  The sketch is below and was created from the Easter card I made in March.  The designer series paper is part of the new Stampin’ Up! This and That product line.  Today and tomorrow you can get the This and That bundle and save 15%!!

stampingjulie.com card sketch I created three cards with this sketch last week: Oh Whale baby card, the Epic Day butterfly thank you card, and the Hello card featured here today.  Each card was inspired by the sketch but each looks totally different from the others.  That’s what I love about sketches!  You have a starting point but the results are unique depending on the materials you use.

oh hello flower greeting card stampingjulie.com

For today’s card, I used the colors from the This and That Epic Day dsp and stamped the chevron background in Daffodil Delight.  Then I stamped Oh Hello in Black StazOn.  I purposely trimmed my dsp so that the Calypso Coral that you see in the upper left corner showed up in my piece.

On a scrap paper I colored in the flower stamp with Calypso Coral and Gumball Green markers then added shadowing with Always Artichoke and Cajun Craze before stamping.  I covered the stamped flower with Versamark ink and embossed it with clear embossing powder.  Then I carefully cut it out with my Paper Snips.  I also cut out another blossom from Calypso Coral cardstock and layered that underneath the flower for additional dimension.

I wrapped the die cut oval with Linen Thread by notching the sides with a small paper punch.  I added the flower over the thread with Dimensionals and then tied a knot of Linen Thread and glued it to the stem with Multipurpose Liquid glue.  It’s a whole lot easier to do it that way than to try to tie a knot around that tiny delicate stem!

I will definitely miss this Just Believe stamp set from Stampin’ Up! I love the silhouette flowers and the simple type of the sentiments.  These beautiful images make it super simple to create an elegant greeting card.

To create this card I started with a piece of Whisper White cardstock that I repeatedly stamped the large silhouette flowers with Not Quite Navy.  Then I brayered River Rock at the bottom and Baja Breeze from the top, then adding a little Not Quite Navy brayered from the top.

just believe greeting card stampingjulie.com After brayering the background, I used the Label Collection framelit to cut it out this focal panel.  To make the ‘just for you’ tag, I embossed the frame and greeting on River Rock cardstock and punched it out with the Large Oval punch.

The white background is embossed with the Big Shot and the Stripes embossing folder.  Each layer was adhered to the Whisper White cardstock base with Dimensionals.  A little, Baja Breeze Seam Binding ribbon adds the perfect finishing touch.

Oh Whale Baby card

 I just couldn’t help but fall in love with the Oh, Whale stamp set and this fabulously fun Sunshine & Sprinkles designer series paper!  (This stamp set and dsp will be discontinued at the end of May.)

Oh Whale baby card

I kept it simple again by using the same card layout from yesterday’s butterfly creation.  And the matching whale sizzlit die makes it a snap to cut this little baby out.  I added a touch of Dazzling Diamonds glitter to highlight this cute Melon Mambo creature, and after trimming it out with the coordinating Happy Whale clearlit die, I popped it up with dimensionals.  (A clearlit die is a die with a window for perfect placement.)

I also added a little Dazzling Diamonds glitter sporadically to the ‘waves’ in the paper.  I stamped ‘hello baby’  from the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set in coordinating Pretty in Pink (a color retiring next month).
