Happy Thursday and I have a HAPPY card for you today and I admit, I have been itchin’ to make this card! (Below you will see the picture from the catalog that my inspiration came from, pg. 21)
I used the color palette that the super amazing, Mary Fish came up with for this weeks Pals Paper Art Challenge! I hope that you will pop over to the site and see what the other designers came up with and then YOU make a card using these colors (or something similar….just have fun!)
Doesn’t this picture of samples just FUN!!! I knew that with my first go-through of the catalog that this bundle would make its way to Randall Lane….A FUN classic that I will use for years and years! Birthdays are FUN TIMES to make FUN CARDS! The other thing that I like about this bundle is, it will go for both young and old…you just cannot go wrong with the “B-day Classics”
Just look at the detailed framelits ~ Stampin’ Up! is just getting better and better in making more intrigue dies to make the process easier and faster! We all know that “TIME” thing gets us all of the time so whenever we find a time saver – I raise my hand and say “YES, sign me up”
Hopefully the below picture will make sense to you. Using the stampin’ trimmer…made it a breeze to cut the stripe triangle shape in half. I love these 3 colors together Bermuda Bay, Flirty Flamingo and Peekaboo Peach and then against the neutral of Tip Top Taupe….a fun color combination!
I know that I use the stamp set Cottage Greeting a bunch…but that is for a great reason ~ it is an A+ Stamp set and the fonts…FABULOUS!
Today I heat embossed the Happy Birthday in White and I adore the POP…I highly suggest to use the embossing buddy to remove any static before you versamark it up and the pour the white powder over top! (TIP…..while you are prepping the embossing part – go ahead and turn on your heat tool to get good and hot so when you emboss it ~ the process will be quicker and your warping will be minimized.)
Let’s quickly chat about the streamers…I just used the versamark to stamp them. Remember, you just have to play around with the papers to see if you like it in the versamark or on tone. The versamark dries and will not smear! I think that it is a fun effect. 🙂
The envelope bunch board was my lifer-saver in making a fun envelope! Just follow the direction on the board to coordinate with the size of your envelope….PRESTO!!!!!
By all means, you would never have to stamp the hats in (2) colors like I did today, I just wanted to give it a try and it worked, it was actually FUN! Just think of all of the different colors you could use or you could easily use a DSP to cut it out.
I added on the top part of my Blog a header for the Holiday Product Share….I think that this will be easier for you to click and take a look. Please remember to email me with your address to take part in the 1st wave once the catalog goes live on September 1st!
Have a fun day…do something fun…make some memories but stay cool if you live in the “HEAT WAVE” …it is HOT in Maryland!
