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.

Pretty Postage Petal Birthday Card

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.

Stampin’ Up! Aviary Stamp Set Retiring :(

Stampin' Up! Aviary CAS Greeting Card angle A Clean and Simple Greeting Card

I absolutely love the Aviary Stamp Set! Here are a couple of samples from this past year. One is super simple and the other is more involved, but both include bright little birds.

And here’s the other which is a little more involved with more bright color birds inspired by the Summer Smooches designer series paper and includes rhinestone accents.

A Crossword Puzzle Birthday Card

cross my heart crossword puzzle birthday card www.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.

cross my heart crossword puzzle birthday card www.stampingjulie.com

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 www.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%!!

www.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 www.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!
