Isn’t this elephant from the Sale-A-Bration Patterned Occasions stamp set just stinking cute?!! And when you stamp him in the deep purple of Rich Razzleberry all his little funky pattern is fabulously vivid. A little touch of Tangerine Tango orange pops off the purple.
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.
The scallop circle here is the mid-size doily from the Delicate Doilies Sizzlets Diefrom 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.
You are just 2 minutes away from acrylic-block-stamping mastery! I’ve recorded a quick video to show you how I created this card with my ‘B’ clear block. You’ll learn how to do acyrlic-block and stamping-off or two-tone stamping in the video below.

Here’s a clean and simple one-layer Bloomin’ Marvelous card made with the acrylic block stamping technique. Then I just added a few rhinestones and the matching Tangerine Tango ribbon from the SAB Sycamore Street Ribbon and Button Pack for some extra punch. (You can view the video tutorial here.)
Simply ink your acrylic block directly into your stamp pad, in this case Daffodil Delight, and stamp directly onto your paper. I inked the block each time I stamped for consistent results. Then I stamped the Tangerine Tango and the Island Indigo flowers on top of the block stamping. I stamped the Tangerine Tango flower twice before reinking to get the two-tone effect you see here.
The ribbon from the Sale-a-bration Sycamore Street Ribbon and Button Pack is so bright and cheery looking and so easy to work with. It’s lightweight and ties into a know or bow very nicely. And you’ll get the Tangerine Tango, Island Indigo and Pool Party ribbons in the pack.
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.
