Butterfly Birthday…

So this week when I highlighted the new InColor, Lemon Lime Twist, I also confessed how at first sight my thought was, “this color will look amazing with black!”…and it does.

Here’s another example…

Paired up with black and the Butterfly Basics stamp set it’s “winner, winner, chicken dinner!”

Spotlight Lemon Lime Twist…

This is a huge birthday month for me with several of them being male.  Are you as challenged by “male themed” cards as I am?

The reason (at least for me) might be that 85% of the cards I make are feminine in nature.  And I love flowers and soft, sweet colors…..

However, when the new InColors were first shown to me at OnStage in Savannah, and because I’m a “green” person…Lemon Lime Twist appealed to me immediately.  And just as quickly I envisioned it paired with black.

Here’s my Lemon Lime Twist, male themed with black post for you today…

That beacon of light is Daffodil Delight ink so you can see the contrast of these two colors.  Do you like Lemon Lime Twist paired with black?

Glamour close up shot…

Side view to show dimension…even the little piece of grass is set up as is the lighthouse and the double layer on front.

and a peek inside.  The sentiment is so appropriate…

If you feel as challenged as I do sometimes making male themed cards, tuck this one in your pocket for emergencies.  Here’s the Stuff ‘N Digits for you…

Stuff

  • Paper:  Lemon Lime Twist, Basic Black and Thick Whisper White Cardstock plus Urban Underground Specialty Designer Series Paper
  • Ink:  Daffodil Delight, Lemon Lime Twist, Smoky Slate and Archival Basic Black
  • Stamps:  Feathered Together (sentiments) and High Tide
  • Tools ‘N Embellishments:  Urban Underground Embellishments and Adhesive Strips

Digits

  • The Lemon Lime Twist base card is 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, scored, folded and burnished at 4-1/4″
  • The Basic Black layer is 4-1/8″ x 5-3/8″ attached to card front with SNAIL
  • The DSP layer is 4″ x 5-1/4″ attached over the Basic Black layer with SNAIL
  • The Lemon Lime Twist layer is 3-1/4″ x 4-1/4″
  • The Basic Black layer is 3-1/8″ x 4-1/8″ attached to the Lemon Lime Twist layer with SNAIL
  • The Thick Whisper White layer is 3″ x 4″.  Stamp lighthouse on scrap Whisper White and “fussy cut”.  Stamp one grass on same scrap and “fussy cut”.  Stamp sentiment in Lemon Lime Twist at top of this layer.  Position lighthouse to get an idea where you want the light beam to be and stamp.  Add lighthouse with dimensionals.  Stamp grass at base and add “fussy cut” grass to base with glue dot.  Splatter using Lemon Lime Twist marker and lid.  Add three silver stars.  Attach all three layers to center card front using Adhesive Strips.
  • Inside the Whisper White layer is 3-1/4″ x 4-1/4″ with a 1/2″ x 3-1/4″ strip of DSP placed at the bottom with SNAIL.
  • You can see in the photo the same DSP was used to cover the envelope flap to coordinate with the card front.

Hope your Wednesday is a good one…if not, well…at least it is “hump day”!

Birthday Delivery…

Can you stand one more birthday card with these cute forest animals?  It’s hard to put this suite of products away.  Ideas keep coming to mind and need to be made!

Here’s today’s post…

Lots of “fussy cutting” here…

Glamour shot close up…

Here’s the Stuff ‘N Digits for you…

Stuff

  • Paper:  Real Red and Thick Whisper White Cardstock, plus Birthday Memories Designer Series Paper
  • Ink:  Real Red, Soft Sky and Journaling Pen

  • The top Thick Whisper White layer is 4-1/8″ x 5-3/8″.  Cut the bottom layer “grass” from DSP and attach to Whisper White layer with SNAIL.  Using a sponge add Soft Sky ink to top of Whisper White layer.  Add to card front with SNAIL.
  • Cut the fox from the DSP with framelit.  Cut his hat from DSP with framelit.  Cut gift box from DSP with framelit.  Fussy cut bear with baby bear and raccoon from DSP.  Add bear first in center of card front with multipurpose glue.  Add fox next overlapping his tail on bear.  Add raccoon last overlapping his trumpet.  Add balloons in top right corner and add strings with journaling pen to the baby bear’s paw.  How sweet is that?
  • Now inside the card I cut out a turtle and a squirrel.  The Whisper White layer is 4″ x 5-1/4″ attached with SNAIL.  Cut grass from DSP and add to bottom of layer with SNAIL.  Stamp Happy Birthday sentiment in Real Red.  Add to card with SNAIL.
  • You can see an extra gift box was cut out to attach to the lower left corner of the envelope to coordinate with the card front.

Next week I’m moving on to other new products.  But, believe me, this suite of products is so much fun to play with.

Hope your weekend will be everything you want it to be and more.

Here’s another interactive card that is really easy to assemble…

How cute is that?

and a peek inside.

Here’s the Stuff ‘N Digits for you…

Stuff

  • Paper:  Dapper Denim (because I don’t have any Pacific Point!) and Thick Whisper White Cardstock, plus Birthday Memories Designer Series Paper
  • Ink:  Real Red and Archival Basic Black
  • Stamps:  Birthday Delivery
  • Tools ‘N Embellishments:  Birthday Friends Framelits Dies, Balloon Honeycomb Embellishments, Word Punch (retired, you can substitute Classic Label Punch), Scalloped Tag Topper Punch, Urban Underground Embellishments

Digits

  • The Dapper Denim base card is 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, scored, folded and burnished at 4-1/4″.
  • The Thick Whisper White layer is 4-1/8″ x 5-3/8″.
  • The two DSP layers are 2-1/2″ top and 2″ bottom.  Attach to Whisper White layer with SNAIL.  Using the punch, insert layer into punch as far as it will go and centered…punch.  Line up punch on right side and punch.  Repeat for left side.  You should now have an opening on the bottom of this layer for the slider.
  • Let’s make that slider…Cut a piece of Dapper Denim 1-3/4″ x 6″.  Cut a piece of DSP 1″ x 6″ and attach to center of CS with SNAIL.  Cut one end with Scalloped Tag Topper Punch.  Add star from Urban Underground Embellishments at punched end.
  • Using the front layer as a pattern, draw with pencil around opening onto the Dapper Denim base card.  Cut a piece of Whisper White 1″ x 5-1/4″.  Attach this piece to the base card over the pencil tracing.  Now lay the top layer down and trace the opening again being careful to have the layer exactly where you are going to attach it and trace the opening on the Whisper White lightly.  Stamp you sentiment inside your pencil markings.  Remove pencil line with eraser.
  • Now turn over the top layer and with the slider in place, add Adhesive Strips on both sides and the end of the slider channel for a stop.  Also add strips around the top and side edges.  Remove protective paper and attach to card base.  Slide in your slider to be sure it works.  You may need to trip the straight end if the slider is too long.
  • Cut fox from DSP with Framelit Die.  Cut another fox from Whisper White and glue together with multipurpose glue.  Stamp banner in black ink on Whisper White CS.  Add sentiment in Real Red.  Cut another banner out of Whisper White and glue to back of stamped banner with multipurpose glue.
  • With slider in place add two dimensions stacked at far right of opening.  Add fox over these stacked dimensionals.  Glue sentiment banner to his paw.  Let dry.  Add balloon just to right of fox’s left shoulder.  Look what you did?  How awesome is that?
  • Inside there is a Whisper White layer 4″ x 5-1/4″.  The HB sentiment is in Real Red.  The mouse and his hat were fussy cut and added with multipurpose glue.  The strip of DSP is 1/2″ x 5-1/4″ added with SNAIL.

My experience has been that people love these interactive cards.  I hope you will give this card a try.  Once you’ve made one, you’ll duplicate it over and over.

Thanks so much for stopping by today.

Birthday Delivery Spinner…

It just doesn’t get much more fun that this…the last weekend of this month Sweetums and I will be traveling to NYC to surprise our g’daugher, Lyla (the littles), for her 10th birthday!  She knows nothing about the trip or that we will be at the airport when she arrives.  Can you say excited?

So you know there has to be the most special birthday card, right?

Cutie Pie, right?

Glamour close up…

Side angle…

From the top…

Making this card was the most fun…here’s the Stuff ‘N Digits for you…

Stuff

  • Paper:  Thick Whisper White, Pink Powder Cardstock, plus Birthday Memories Designer Series Paper
  • Ink:  Real Red, Archival Basic Black
  • Stamps:  Birthday Delivery
  • Tools ‘N Embellishments:  Birthday Friends Framelits Set, Copper Thread, Watercolor Pencils, Blender Pen, Thin Tipped Glue, Tear Tape, Stitched Ovals Dies

Digits

  • Cut the Powder Pink card base 4-1/4″ x 11″.  Score at 5-1/2″.  Cut another panel 4-1/4″ x 6″, score at 1/2″ on long side.  Attach the shorter panel to the double panel with Tear Tape. Basically you have six panels counting front and back.  Five panels are decorated.

  • Let’s start with the one just above.  In the center panel place a Whisper White layer 4-1/8″ x 5-3/8″ with a DSP layer on top 4″ x 5-1/4″.  One panel done!
  • The panel with the oval opening has a Whisper White layer 4-1/8″ x 5-3/8″.  The DSP layer is 4″ x 5-1/4″.  Attach layers together and to card front with just a smidge of SNAIL.  Run through Big Shot with the smaller Stitched Oval Framelit to cut all three layers at the same time…it works, I promise and your layers will be perfectly aligned!  Take layers apart.  With the Scalloped Oval Framelit, cut just the DSP layer.
  • Let’s make the cutie pie girl.  Cut the figure from DSP with matching die.  Stamp on scrap Whisper White the back of her.  Color with watercolor pencils and a Blender Pen and cut out with matching die.  Cover both pieces with Thin Tipped Glue and let dry completely.  Once dry add multipurpose glue to backside of one piece, lay a 10″ piece of Copper Thread top to bottom then add second piece on top.  Add an acrylic block over it to hold it in place until completely dried.
  • Now add the Whisper White panel to the card front with multipurpose glue.  Lay the girl in the center of the oval with copper thread extending over edges.  Add multipurpose glue and attach DSP layer on top.  Add weight and let dry completely.  Trim Copper thread at edges.  Give the girl a few turns and watch her spin!.  The flag was stamped on scrap Whisper White and cut out with framelit.  Add to card panel with multipupose glue.
  • Now let’s work on the opposite side of all three panels.  Starting with the center panel there is a layer of Whisper White 4-1/8″ x 5-3/8″ attached with SNAIL.  The DSP layer is 4″ x 5-1/4″ attached with SNAIL.  There are three balloons cut with framelit attached to background with dimensionals.
  • The panel that serves as the “stop” for the easel is a piece of DSP 2″ x 4-1/4″.  The Stitched Oval Framelit was used with Pink Powder CS attached with dimensionals.  The sentiment was stamped on scrap Whisper White and punched with the new Pretty Label Punch and attached to the oval with dimensionals.  The gift box was cut from DSP with Framelit and added with SNAIL.
  • The Belly Band that holds the card together is 2″ x 11″ Whisper White scored at 4-3/8 and 9-1/4″.  The DSP layer is 1-3/4″ x 11″ attached with SNAIL.  The Whisper White oval was the one cut from the card front stamped in Real Red.  The cake was cut from DSP with Framelit and attached with SNAIL.  Wrap closed card and overlap ends.  Add Tear Tape to close Belly Band.

This card took a little time…like starting it last night and letting the pieces dry well then finishing this morning.  Honestly it takes more time to photograph and write up that it does to make it.  But you should definitely give one of these spinner cards a try…fun!  This bundle is the perfect place to start!  All supplies available June 1st!

Thanks so much for stopping by today and taking a peek.

Friendly Bumble Bee…

Today’s card is one of my favorites.  I like the way it folds together, I love the designer series paper and bumble bees are one of my favorite things on this earth because of the work they do (worker bees) and the fact they are not aerodynamically designed to fly…but do!

Here’s the card…

There’s that gingham!  I hope the new annual catalog has more…

Glamour close up…love that bee!

Extra Special Birthday…

Everyday (except Sundays) I create a new card or home décor project or 3-D art piece…every.  day.

There are a couple of things I love about that commitment and one I don’t…

I love to create a piece for a special specific person.  So much thought goes into a piece like that.

I DO NOT like to mass produce anything.  But when a Stampin’ Up! event comes up and swapping is part of the event, then mass producing is necessary.  So that’s what I’ve been doing a lot of this week…

They are a work in progress…

So once the swaps were done it was a joy to make today’s post for an upcoming birthday…

It never occurred to me how much I’d love this Designer Series Paper initially.  The idea to use it this way has been rolling around in my mind at first sight of it.

Glamour close up…

The embossing of the hearts was meant to suggest quilting.

and a peek inside…

I love all the designs in this pack (well…most of them) but especially the gingham!  I have four packs of this DSP and not a single piece of gingham anywhere.

Here’s the Stuff ‘N Digits for you…

Stuff

  • Paper:  Tip Top Taupe, Thick Whisper White Cardstock, plus Oh So Succulent Designer’s Series Paper
  • Ink:  Archival Basic Black
  • Stamps:  Dragonfly Dreams (sentiment)
  • Tools ‘N Embellishments:  1″ Square Punch or Framelit and Falling Petals Embossing Folder

Digits

  • The Tip Top Taupe base card is 4-1/4″ x 11″, scored, folded and burnished at 5-1/2″
  • The top Thick Whisper White square layer is 3-3/8″ square.
  • The Tip Top Taupe square layer is 3-1/4″ square.  Attach this layer to the Whisper White square layer with SNAIL.
  • Punch 12 (1″ square) pieces of the DSP.  Arrange 1″ squares on top of Tip Top Taupe square and attach with multipurpose glue.  This gives you a little time to move or adjust the square if you need to.  Run this square through the Big Shot in the Falling Petals EF.  Attach all three layers to top of card front with dimensionals.
  • The sentiment layers are Thick Whisper White 1″ x 3-3/8″, Tip Top Taupe layer is 7/8″ x 3-1/4″ and the top Whisper White layer is 3/4″ x 3-1/8″.  Stamp sentiment in Archival Basic Black and cut piece 3/4″ x 3-1/8″.  Add this piece to the next two layers and add to bottom of card front with dimensionals.
  • Inside there is a Whisper White layer 3-1/4″ x 4-1/4″ with three blocks added at the bottom of this layer and attached inside card with SNAIL
  • The envelope flap was covered in matching DSP to coordinate with card front.

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  Hope you found something here to inspire you in your creations.

Vintage Truck…

When I posted the Flower Truck earlier this week, I might have mentioned how much I love that old truck.  So today here’s another “old truck” just for us “vintage” girls…

The “Inside the Lines” Designer Series Paper came in handy here…

Isn’t that fun?  I know several girl friends who would love this birthday card.  Maybe I need to make more!

Yesterday was so exciting to see my daughter who is visiting from Seoul, South Korea, and my granddaughter who just became a mommie…  And, of course, Little Henry, (they call him Hank).  You just forget how little a newborn is.  But no matter, he felt wonderful, snuggly and sweet!

You are looking at “love at first sight!”  As time passes, I will try not to bore you with baby pics…but it will be hard!

Here’s your “B-ism” for today…

never happens.

But I do know if your fingers are inky…you are HaPpY!
