StampingJulie Sketch Inspired: Get Well & Happy Birthday

patterned occasions bandaid stamp card

When you’re not feeling well bright and cheery is the answer.  I combined the Sale-a-bration Patterned Occasions  stamp set with the Sycamore Street Designer Series Paper to create this upbeat get well card.

I love to use the colors in a pack of designer series paper to inspire my creating, but you can also experiment with colors outside the paper pack’s color palette.  Here I combined the striped Tangerine Tango paper with Melon Mambo cardstock for a fresh new color combo.

StampingJulie CAS sketch challenge linky party

My sketch inspiration is from Friday’s CAS Sketch ChallengeYou can see more and play along here.  I kept this card super simple by following the sketch and adding simple interest with bright colors, a layered banner flag and a popped-up heart.  The heart was stamped from the Hearts-a-Flutter stamp set and punched with the Small Heart punch.

This card is also made with paper from the Sale-a-bration Sycamore Street pack and the Patterned Occasions stamp set.  Again I chose a coordinating color outside of the colors used in the pack.  In this case, I used the Pool Party patterned paper with a softer pink, Primrose Petals.

The scallop circle here is the mid-size doily from the Delicate Doilies Sizzlets Die from page 191 in the catalog.  When the catalog was printed the numbers got reversed and the largest die was listed as 1-3/8″ in diameter which is much smaller than what I wanted.  When I found out the correct dimensions were 3-1/8″ for the largest doily I ordered the die immediately!  As you can see here the mid-size doily layers perfectly with the 1-3/4″ circle punch.

Again, I used Friday’s sketch for inspiration, changed the orientation to landscape, tied the Primrose Petals stitched ribbon across the card and added a bitty flower from Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack with a Rhinestone.

Collage Curios I Love Paris In the Springtime

collage curios paris birthday card

This birthday card just makes me want to sing “I Love Paris in the Springtime.”  The eiffel tower from the Stampin’ Up! Collage Curios stamp set takes center stage but the swirly background from the Hearts a Flutter tag helps it along the way.

Each tag was stamped and then punched out with the Postage Stamp punch and popped up with a Stampin’ Dimensional.  I loved using the 2011-13 In Colors for a perfect spring color palette: Calypso Coral, Lucky Limeade, Pool Party and Whisteria Wonder with a little Pink Pirouette added in.
