A Round Array Card

I saw this card on StamperDog and thought it was a definite CASE (Copy and Share Everything) card. I changed some colors and added a few things. This card will be going in the product order bag of one of my gals who ordered the A Round Array stamp set.

Honeycomb Limeade

Here we go:

  • I started with the Whisper White card base. I ran a piece of Lucky Limeade (soon to be retired) card stock through the Honeycomb Embossing Folder using the Big Shot. I attached a piece of Lucky Limeade In Colors Designer Series Paper to the bottom and attached this to my card.
  • I took a strip of Island Indigo and Daffodil Delight card stock and cut the ribbon ends. I then ran them through the Stripes Embossing Folder and placed them on my card.
  • Next came a piece of the Brights Designer Series Paper in Daffodil Delight. I punched my butterflies from the paper using the Bitty Butterfly and Elegant Butterfly punches. I popped them on the card using Mini Glue Dots and added a Basic Pearl to each butterfly.
  • Finally I stamped the Thank You from the A Round Array set in Island Indigo and punched it out with the 7/8″ Scallop Circle Punch. It was added on using a Dimensional.

Just a reminder that many of your favorite accessories, stamp sets and colors will be retiring within the next month. As soon as I have the list, I will let you know. The items on the list go fast and are available only on a “while supplies last” basis from Stampin’ Up!. Make sure you are on my e-mail list so I can keep you updated. Also, many of my personal retiring items from years gone by will be available for sale as I do a major spring cleaning. Keep Thinkin’ Inkin’!

Pretty Petites

I love the Sycamore Street Designer Series Paper and the Pretty Petites stamp set from our Sale-a-bration catalog.

SAB Scallop Squares

I started with an Island Indigo card base, layered with Pool Party card stock. I punched all of my squares from the Sycamore Street Designer Series Paper using the Postage Stamp punch. After adhering them to my Pool Party card stock, I ran the piece through the Big Shot using the new Honeycomb Embossing Folder. I added the Island Indigo Ruffled Ribbon and attached the entire piece to my card base. I punched the butterfly from Island Indigo card stock using the new Bitty Butterfly punch, and then I added a rhinestone jewel. The butterfly was attached to the square with dimensionals. I pulled out my Raspberry Ripple Dahlia and attached it to the other square for a flower effect. Finally I stamped the “hello” in Island Indigo on Whisper White card stock and punched it out using the Sale-a-bration Petite Curly Label punch. It was also attached with dimensionals. What a fun way to use your Designer Series Paper.

Wacky Wishes Sycamore Street

This was a fun card to make. I took a basic layout from the Stampin’ Up! magazine that demonstrators receive every other month and adapted it to work with the stamp set and embellishments I had. I also got to use a couple of products from both the Sale-a-bration and Spring catalogs.
Sycamore Happy Birthday

I started off with an Island Indigo card base. I ran the bottom half of the card through the Big Shot using the Honeycomb Embossing Folder featured in the Spring catalog. I took a piece of the Sycamore Street Designer Series Paper from the Sale-a-bration brochure and attached it to Whisper White card stock. I added some Summer Starfruit Stitched Satin Ribbon to cover the seam.

I stamped Happy Birthday in Rich Razzleberry ink from the Wacky Wishes stamp set on the Whisper White card stock. The Wacky Wishes stamp set is available as a hostess item. Next came the Adorning Accents Edgelits, run through the Big Shot, on a strip of Rich Razzleberry card stock, and I attached it to the bottom of the Whisper White piece. Then the entire piece was adhered to the card base.

Now comes the fun. I took a small piece of the Sycamore Street paper using two different designs and covered them with Versamark and embossed the entire piece with Clear Embossing Powder. I punched out different areas using the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack. I also stamped a flower in Versamark from the Itty Bitty Bits stamp set on Summer Starfruit, Rich Razzleberry, Pool Party and Tangerine Tango card stock, embossing them again with Clear Embossing Powder and punching them out. They were attached randomly to the Designer Series Paper on the card.

I took one of the punched paper pieces and attached it to a Bitty Button so the design would show through, and then attached the button to the card.

It was much easier to put together than the printed word shows!
