My granddaughter turned 4 last month! It’s hard to believe that she is already 4 years old. And she is the funniest little girl! She wanted earrings so we sent her this birthday card with the money to get her ears pierced. Here she is showing off her new earrings.
Here’s one of the latest Savannah stories from my daughter. Stephanie says, “Savannah comes up with the craziest stories. This morning I asked her how she hurt her toe and she said, ‘I was playing and jumped into the laundry basket and a chicka-munk came up and cut my toe!’ Me: ‘it cut your toe?’ Sav: ‘Yeah! With Scissors! And it will call its other friends to come, so watch out for chicka-munks!!!'”
I love the way this little bear peers over the happy birthday message. His little face is punched out in Early Espresso and Very Vanilla with lots of punches and finished with the Black Stampin’ Write marker and the White Gel pen. The happy birthday message is a from the Stampin’ Rewards Wacky Wishes. (This set is available free when you host a Stampin’ class, workshop or your personal order reaches $150.)
The Pretty in Pink background is embossed with the Honeycomb folder from the Spring catalog and the base of the card is Primrose Petals. I knew this bear was going to get a lot of love from a four year old so I put it all together with the Liquid Multipurpose glue so it would be sure and hold together tight and withstand 4 year old abuse for as long as possible.
I simply stamped the stem and flower, then overlapped the greeting and punched it out with the 2-1/2″ Circle punch. I then layered that on the 3″ square card base and added a tiny pearl accent to the middle of the flower. 3″x 3″ cards fit neatly in the small square gift envelopes.
It’s the last day to get this stamp set FREE with a qualifying SAB order.
Here’s the Feeling Sentimental bicycle in motion! To create the motion, I inked up the stamp with Raspberry Ripple and stamped it four times, shifting to the left without reinking. I love the effect. Then I added the large Rhinestone to the front bike for added emphasize.
The beautiful paper is from the Print Poetry Designer Series Paper Stack. The stack includes 48 sheets, 4 each of 12 double-sided designs. Each sheet is 4-1/2″ x 6-1/2″, perfect for card making or picture matting and a variety of other projects. And it’s printed in a lovely array of styles in beautiful In Colors.
“So glad” is stamped from the SAB Bloomin’ Marvelous set. I used a Raspberry Ripple marker to color just the words I wanted from the stamp. It fit just right in the circle punch layered on the scallop circle.
I was able to customize this birthday card with the new Designer Typeset clear stamps. Did you notice the name in the banner at the top? These clear stamps are great for placing your letters and stamping right where you want to. And they are pliable so I could curve my banner too.
The bright colors are compliments of the Sycamore Street Designer Series Paper which is available for FREE with a Sale-a-bration order. But the sale ends today so act quickly! I love this paper because it’s so bright and cheery and the patterns coordinate so well together. I just used both sides of the paper to get that playful look.
A couple of silver brads hold the contrasting strip of Sycamore Street dspin place. The dark Island Indigo color is perfect for a masculine card. I also kept the stamping unfussy so even with the lively patterns it still has a masculine feel.
I can hardly believe that Sale-a-bration ends in 2 days! When Sale-a-bration ends, this Vine Street embossing folderwill go away too. This is one of the three cards we made during the stamp camp over the weekend. Super cute and super easy! I love punch art bunnies. This one is created with two punches of the Small Oval punchand a couple of punches of the smallest petal from the Blossom Petals Builder punch.
Happy Easter is stamped from the Stampin’ Up! Teeny Tiny Wishes Stamp Setand punched out with the Word Window punch. After you punch it out you can feed one end of it into the bottom of the punch and shorten the strip, which is what I did here.
