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.

Stampin’ Up! Nature Walk Collage Greeting

nature walk for you card

I have always loved the collage style but it doesn’t come naturally to me.  The Nature Walk stamp set makes collage stamping easy and using clear-mount stamps makes it even easier.  I mounted the bee, butterfly and number stamp on one block and stamped them in More Mustard.

I stamped the bird egg images with Sahara Sand and the floral image with Old Olive.  Finally I stamped the bird cage with Midnight Muse and added a wire hanger with a straight edge and the fine tip Midnight Muse marker.

I created the ‘For You’ tag with the Layered Labels stamp set stamped in Old Olive and die-cut with the Apothecary  Accents Framelits.  I stamped it again with Midnight Muse and punched with the large oval punch and layered it all with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  The final touch was knotted on with stitched Midnight Muse ribbon.

I was going for a simple, sophisticated collage greeting card.  I hope I hit the mark!  What do you think?

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!

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.

Stampin’ Up! Tricky Treats Happy Halloween

Tricky Treats plaid halloween bat 2

Remember the old song, “What a difference a day makes.  twenty-four little hours…” I found myself humming, “What a difference an eye makes…” today as I created this cute bat tag.

Tricky Treats hallow-wing missing eyes

The finishing touch on this little bat was adding the adhesive-backed googly eyes.  What a difference?  It took it from cute to adorable!  You’re friends will love this cute little guy with his googly eyes, and this little greeting card is quick to create.

To create this card I started with a Basic Black cardstock base. I centered my Labels Collection Framelit on the front, secured it with post it notes and ran it through the Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine.  I backed it with plaid Howlstooth and Scaringbone Designer Series Paper.  I used a smaller label framelit to cut out the center piece.  Everything was adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the bat tag from the Tricky Treats stamp set with Basic Black Craft ink and embossed it with Black Emboss Powder, after sprinking it with a just a touch of Iridescent Ice Emboss Powder for a hint of glitter.  Be careful not to mix the embossing powders.

The bat tag was punched with a circle punch and was added to the center with a dimensional and then tied to a Tangerine Tango Glimmer at the top with Linen Thread.

An added bonus when backing the label cut-out on front is the fun pattern that shows on the interior.  A Happy Halloween sentiment from the Seasonal Sayings Stamp Set was stamped in the middle with Tangerine Tango ink.
