Zoo Babies Congratulations

 

Zoo-Babies-congratulations stampin up stampingjulie.com

This is embarrassing! I wrote this post last November and never posted it.  So it’s a little late.

OK…

     …a lot late.

I hope you enjoy it anyway.

Cute Cohen featured below is now crawling everywhere.  So cute!  And we’ve had another grandbaby since I wrote this among many other things.

This is part of my No-More-Perfectionist Manifesto, so I will share it with you even if it’s not perfect!!

Right?       Right!

So on to the ancient post…

Isn’t this the sweetest Zoo Babies card?  I made this at a Stampin’ Up! event this past summer and I love it.  I love the soft colors, the patterns, the scallops, the ruffle ribbon and the adorable Stampin’ Up! Zoo Babies stamp set animals.  (More details on this card below.)

Part of my absence from this space has been the welcoming a new grandbaby!  Little baby Cohen was born last month and his sister and brother LOVE him.  Recently while at a trick or treat party a friend was holding the sweet newborn and his two year old brother reminded her repeatedly that the baby was his and she could NOT take him home!  So cute and sweet!  And now I’m going to do the proud grandma thing and whip out my virtual photobook!  Ha!  (And thank you to all my wonderful friends out there who continue to order from StampingJulie.com!)

I have the cutest grandchildren.  <sigh>

OK, back to the card!  Loved the Zoo Babies stamp set as soon as I saw it in this year’s catalog.  Did you notice it too or is it just because we were expected TWO new grandbabies this year.  And these new colors are beautiful with this set.  Isn’t Smoky Slate just perfect for this playful elephant?  And combined with the Coastal Cabana toucan – excellent!

The scalloped panel was created with the scallop circle die and trimmed to 4″ wide.  What a clever way to use this die.  And, of course, everything with Stampin’ Up! coordinates beautifully from candy dots to ruffle ribbon to pattern paper – fabulous!!  Spend less time looking for the perfect match and more time creating!

The Modern Label punched designer series paper is a wonderful layer for the word window punched greeting.  I love the look of the new In Color Designer Series Paper Stacks.  The patterns shown above are just opposites sides of the same paper.  Again, superty-duperty easy designing!

A Pool Party Cycle Celebration Birthday Card

cycle celebration birthday card stampingjulie cards stampin up I love bicycle stamps!  And I wanted the Cycle Celebration stamp set the minute I saw it in the new catalog!  This bicycle is adorable!!  So cute!

And yes, I know I’ve been missing in action on the website, but rest assured that if you email me, call or text me at the email address or phone number at the top of the website I’m always available to you!  I will not bore you with everything that has been going on since June.  It has been crazy!!! – moving, surgeries, a funeral, a birth, etc.  But things are starting to settle down and I’m hopeful I’ll be in a new house in about two months and I’ll be able to set up my new stamp studio and share it with you!  Yay!

cycle celebration birthday card stampingjulie cards stampin up

The inspiration for the design and colors in this card came from page 10 of the Stampin’ Up! catalog.  If you look at the picture you may be surprised that gift packaging on the birthday ensemble could be the inspiration for a card, but notice how I stamped the tag and repeated the bicycle pattern across the card – all inspired by the packaging.

The ruffle ribbon is the perfect border for the ‘road’ these cycles are rolling on!  And it’s super easy to work with.  I used a bit of SNAIL adhesive on the ribbon to set it in place and then taped it behind the Quatrefancy designer series paper.

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.

Label Love Gee Thanks Washi Tape Card www.stampingjulie.com

20 Washi Tape Thank You’s in a Jiffy

Label Love Gee Thanks Washi Tape Card www.stampingjulie.com
I always need a stack of thank you cards. But lately the need has been even greater. So many friends have helped me as I’ve prepared to move. I’ve had friends come over and help me do a bit of painting, cleaning and packing. Not only was their help wonderful for getting a lot done, it also was just GREAT to have the company and moral support. When I was a kid I used to beg my sister to just come sit in my room with me while I cleaned.  I’m a social cleaner, for sure.

Label Love Gee Thanks Washi Tape Card www.stampingjulie.com

I love to find a design that’s cute AND fast.  Washi tape came to the rescue on this note card.  I started with the note card pack of precut cards and envelopes.  And the Gingham Garden Washi Tape comes  as a pack of these three patterns that harmonize together.  Just tear off three strips and adhere for an instant colorful design.

Label Love Gee Thanks Washi Tape Card www.stampingjulie.com

And four punches really amped up the quick and fun factor.  I stamped ‘Gee, thanks’ from Really Good Greetings and punched it out with the Modern Label punch, then punched the end with a corner of the 1″ square punch.

Label Love Gee Thanks Washi Tape Card www.stampingjulie.com

The punched sentiment was layered on the base stamped with the Label Love stamp and punched out with the new and coordinating Artisan Label punch.  The center was decorated with a scallop circle punched from Whisper White cardstock spruced up with the Gingham wheel.

Label Love Gee Thanks Washi Tape Card www.stampingjulie.com

I used the same Gingham wheel to decorate the envelope flop for a coordinated surprise.  Don’t you just love getting a note card with a decorated envelope?!  Not much chance it will be mistaken as junk mail when you embellish the envelope.
