Candle Border Punch is Awesome

Stampin' Up! Designer Tee stamp set, Sale-a-bration 2017, Candle Builder Punch, Stampin' Studio

Here’s an idea for a fun birthday card.  I used the Designer Tee stamp set, which is one of the FREE Sale-a-bration choices.  I added a row of “punched out candles” using the Candle Border Punch.  I’ll admit, I didn’t think this punch was a “must have” until I played with it.  OMG, I love it.  Instead of keeping all of the little candles that punched out of the cardstock, I used the negative are of the cardstock and slipped a piece of cardstock behind it to highlight the row of candles.

I stamped the image in Basic Black on a square that I die cut using the Stitched Shapes Framelits.  Next, I stamped the same image on a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock using Daffodil Delight ink.  I did a little fussy cutting around the cake and popped it up off the card using a Stampin’ Dimensional.  I couple of this strips of Designer Series Paper from the Neutral and Bright Designer Series Paper Stacks added the last little bit of festive fun to the card.

Stampin’ Studio Tips

  • Tip:  Highlight the focal image, which in this case is the stamped image, by layering framing the image with the Stitched Shapes Framelits and then adding a matted layer behind.  This makes the image pop!
  • Sizes: Daffodil Delight cardstock base is 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ scored at 4-1/4″.  Basic Black cardstock is 4″ x 5-1/4″ and 1-7/8″ x 1-7/8″.  Whisper White cardstock is 3-3/4″ x 5″.   Basic Black striped DSP and Daffodil Delight striped DSP is 1/2″ x 2″.

Celebrating Fancy Aunt Mickey with Delicate Details

Stampin' Up! Sale-a-bration 2017,Delicate Details Falling in Love DSP, Stampin' Studio

Over the weekend we had a celebration of life for my Aunt Mickey who passed away on March 1st.  As a child, my sister Peggy and I referred to her as”fancy” because of the slippers she’d wear around the house.  They would always either have feather boas or gold trim and sparkles and her toe nails were always painted so pretty.  This card seemed fitting for my fancy Aunt Mickey.  The soft and subtle background is a piece of the Falling in Love Designer Series Paper.  I then stamped sentiment from Rose Wonder and the rows of images from the Sale-a-bration stamp set called Delicate Details in Versamark and heat embossed with Gold Embossing Powder.

Here you can see all of the details in the rows of “lacy” images from the Delicate Details stamp set. I then added just a simple piece of the Gold Satin Ribbon.

Stampin’ Studio Tips

  • Tip:  When heat embossing, be sure to rub the Embossing Buddy over the paper first.  This helps to remove static from the paper and will prevent the Embossing Powder from sticking to the paper in areas where you don’t want it.
  • Sizes: Sahara Sand cardstock base is 4-1/4″ x 11″ scored at 5-1/2″.  Falling in Love Designer Series paper is 4″ x 5-1/4″.

Enjoy Life and Have Fun with Tasty Trucks

Stampin' Up! Tasty Trucks stamp set, Sale-a-bration 2017, Suite Sentiments, Stampin' Studio

Only six days left of Sale-a-bration 2017, and I’ve still got some fun cards to share with you.  Today I’ve used the Tasty Trucks stamp set and created an overall background on the Peekaboo Peach cardstock.  I’ve even added some tiny cupcakes in the window of the truck.  I stamped the sentiment from Suite Sentiments stamp set shown on page 54 of the Occasions Catalog on an oval cut out with the Stitched Shapes Framelits.

I kept the card monochromatic so that it wouldn’t look too busy with all of the trucks in the background.  I stamped in Tangerine Tango on Peekaboo Peach cardstock.  Next I added a couple banners; one from Tangerine Tango cardstock and the other from Tangerine Tango striped ribbon from the Brights Designer Series Paper Stack. I tucked a piece of a delicate White Doily behind the banner for a little more depth and texture.

Stampin’ Studio Tips

  • Tip:  Add simple texture and depth by layering a Delicate White Doily under some decorative banners.  Add more depth by popping the Stitched Shapes Oval piece up off the card with a Stampin’ Dimensional.
  • Sizes: Whisper White Thick cardstock base is 4-1/4″ x 11″ scored at 5-1/2″.  Peekaboo Peach cardstock is 4″ x 5-1/4″.  Tangerine Tango striped DSP is 1″ x 4″.  Tangerine Tango cardstock is 1″ x 4″.
