Beautiful Friendship Birthday Card

Hello today I created two birthday cards for my project featuring the Beautiful Friendship Stamp Set from the Annual Catalog along with a sentiment from the FREE Sale-A-Bration Stamp Set for the inside of the card from the Happy Birthday to you set.

I love the Beautiful Friendship stamp set and how the images just pop on the card when you stamp them. I chose to use the Brights color family for my color scheme.  I started with a Flirty Flamingo Base, a layer of basic black and then whisper white cardstock for both the from and inside. Ink colors used are Melon Mambo, Poppy Parade, Mango Melody, Granny Apple Green, and Flirty Flamingo.

I stamped the floral images using all Bright Colors in various spots on the whisper white layer and the Stitched Nested Label Die (2nd largest).  I first stamped the sentiment so I could place it and then built the flowers around it. I temporarily adhered the nested label die to stamp, and then when finished popped it up with dimensionals.

To finish the front of the card, I added black satin ribbon around the white and black layer and then adhered it to the front of the flirty flamingo base.  I also added some basic rhinestone jewels as well.

For the inside I used the celebrate sentiment from the SAB set Happy Birthday to You.  And stamped off in flirty flamingo the Hydrenga in the corner.

All measurements of the card are as follows:
1. Flirty Flamingo Base cut at 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", scored at 4 1/4".
2. Basic black layer is 4 1/8" x 5 3/8".
3. Whisper White layer for front panel and inside are 4" x 5 1/4".  Also need a piece of whisper white for the Stitched Nested label die (2nd largest).
4. Black Sation ribbon- about 5 5/8" to wrap around layers.

I hope you have enjoyed my card and if you need any supplies to make your own or just to refill your paper crafting needs, please shop HERE. The host code for February is on right hand side of my blog, but only use it if your oder is under $150.

Happy Stampin' everyone, I hope you enjoyed my card and gave you some inspiration to create your own!


Paper Crafting Blog Hop February 2020 Sale-A-Bration

I hope you enjoy our Sale-A-Bration themed blog hop this month with Independent Stampin' Up! ® Demonstrators from around the world.  We are here to show you how to use those great FREE Sale-A-Bration (SAB) sets with items from the new mini catalog and the annual catalog. You may have arrived from Sandy's blog and her project was absolutely amazing.

My card for you this month features 2 items that you can earn for FREE with Sale-A-Bration, which runs through 31 March, but it is while supplies last.  So if you love something, place your order and get it now. 

My stamp set I am featuring from Sale-A-Bration is Sending you Thoughts, but I am also pairing it with Lily Impressions DSP, both FREE with a $50 in the USA.  

I started with a piece or Blackberry Bliss for my card base, and it is 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", scored at 4 1/4".  I then chose a piece of the Lily Impressions DSP and cut it at 4" x 5 1/4".  

Next I cut a coordinating piece of cardstock in Granny Apple Green at 1 1/2" x 3 3/4" and flagged the end using the Truly Tailored Punch.  

I then put the backside of the same DSP and it is cut at 2 1/2" x 2 1/2". I then cut another strip of DSP at 3/4" x 4" from the same pack of paper.  I finished by using the 2 1/4" circle punch in Granny Apple Green and Starbust punch in Whisper White and a sentiment from the Sending you Thoughts stamp set. I finished the front with some Champagne Rhinestones. Here is the finished front of the card.

For the inside it is a piece of Whisper White cardstock cut at 4" x 5 1/4" and a strip of leftover DSP that is 1/4" x 5 1/4".  Sentiment on inside is also from Sending you Thoughts.

Sale-A-Bration Little LadyBug Stamp Set Card

For today's card I chose to use the Little LadyBug Stamp Set that is available to Hostesses who have a qualifying party of $300 during February and March!  It is so adorable and even has coordinating dies that you can buy to cut the ladybugs out!

I chose to make a cute Happy Birthday card but wanted to feature each of the ladybugs that are in the set.  I stamped each of them on a piece of whisper white cardstock.  I then used Stampin' Blends in Poppy Parade and Crumb Cake to color them, and added Wink of Stella to make them Sparkle.

To finish the front of the card I decided to use a piece of DSP from the 6x6 from the Brights Collection to to layer on my card base of basic black.  My layered squares of white ladybugs are also in basic black.

I chose to embellish the card with our basic rhinestone jewels and some Silver Metallic thread.

For the inside I simply stamped Happy Birthday from the stamp set and the little ladybug stamp and colored them with the Poppy Parade blend.

I hope you do enjoy the card I made, and if you are in need of any supplies please feel free to shop my link HERE. I would love to have your business and help support your creativity.

The measurements for the card are as follows:

1. Basic Black card base is 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", scored at 4 1/4". The layer pieces of basic black are cut at 1 7/8" x 1 7/8" and you will need four of them.  For the sentiment it is a scrap of basic black that is about 5/8".

2. DSP is Poppy Parade and is 4 x 5 1/4".

3. Whisper white pieces are 1 3/4" x 1 3/4" and you will need four pieces, a scrap that measures 1/2" for the sentiment, and the inside piece is 4 x 51/4".

4. Ink used is Tuxedo Memento Black.

5. Stampin' Blends used are Poppy Parade light and dark and Crumb Cake Light.

6. Embellisments are basic rhinestone jewels, silver metallic thread, wink of stella, and dimensionals.

6th Swap Demo Swap Group February Swap Card

Hello and thank you so much for stopping by my blog.  Today I am sharing a card with you that I created for a swap I have been a part of going on 3 years now.  It is called the 6th Swap, it is just for active ® Stampin' Up! Demonstrators, and we send 6 cards each month for 6 months to 6 demos.

Today I have chosen to make a Z fold card after a fellow demo friend, Valerie Smith, made one last night and I realized I hadn't done one in a long time. You can find her blog and card she made HERE.

For my card I chose to use the Stamp set Strong & Beautiful from the Annual Catalog, paired with the Best Dressed DSP from the Mini Catalog.  Both links can be found on the right hand side of my blog, and you can order your supplies by clicking the Shop NOW button under my header.

Here are the measurements I used for the card:
1. Whisper White Thick Cardstock cut at 4 1/4" x 11", scored at 2 3/4" and 5 1/2".
2.  Lovely Lipstick Cardstock cut at 2 1/2" x 4".
3. A piece of Best Dressed DSP cut at 2 1/4" x 3 3/4", and another piece cut at 1/4" x 5 1/2" for inside.
4.  A piece of Petal Pink Organdy Striped Ribbon about 14" for front. Otherwise use it off the roll and tie a knot and cut as you go.
5.  Scraps of Petal Pink and Whisper White Cardstock to cut the Stitched Nested Labels Dies.

I used Tombow glue to adhere the front piece and inside strip of DSP and the white label to the petal pink label.  I adhered dimensionals to only the left side of the petal pink label and adhered to the front panel.

I hope you enjoy my card. If you need supplies and don't have a demo please shop with me. Each order of at least $50 before taxes and shipping receives a FREE gift from me, plus you will get a FREE gift from Stampin' Up! as it is Sale-A-Bration time.  Shop HERE NOW!

Heartfelt Bundle Swap Cards

Hi Stampers! Krissi Hannahs, your Independent © Stampin' Up! Demonstrator here. I am from Florida and would love to be your demo for your crafting needs. Feel free to shop my link on my blog for all your paper crafting needs.

I participated in a swap last week on Facebook with some crafters, and I wanted to show you what I made.  I used the Heartfelt Bundle from the new Mini Catalog that is wonderful and now live. 

For my colors, I chose Flirty Flamingo for the card base, cut at 4 1/4" x 11", scored at 5 1/2".  I then used a piece of basic black cardstock, embossed with the 3D Subtle Embossing folder, and that measures 4 1/8" x 5 3/8".  I also used the Scripty 3D Embossing folder and used the Scalloped Heart punch in the bundle to punch those out with Vellum Cardstock. 

I also stamped the arrows in Gray Granite and hand cut them out. I then used Real Red Cardstock and  stamped my Image using VersaMark ink and heat embossed with White Emboss Powder. 

I finished the card by adding the Real Red 3/8" Double-Stitched Satin Ribbon and Red Rhinestones. 

I hope you enjoy my card and if you are inspired and need to order products, see my shopping link on the top of my blog or click HERE. You can shop all products for this card there. 

Happy Stampin'!  Thanks again for stopping by. I am here to be your creative inspiration and coach if you need one.

I do three cards, featuring a beginner stamper card, a casual stamper card and then an avid stamper card. All my color schemes stay the same for all three cards as do dimensions and layout design. I simply add a bit to both the 2nd and 3rd cards.

All of the measurements are listed below. You can watch the Replay of the live here on my Facebook.
