Blue Birthday

Today’s card has so many fun layers and patterns. I wanted to create a great birthday card featuring one of the new Glimmer papers. I chose to play off the Bermuda Bay Glimmer Paper and started layering from there. I ended up making an all blue card. You could recreate this card in any color. Perfect for festive birthdays.

SSINKIC42: Hot Air Balloon View

Today’s card is being featured on Stylin’ Stampin’ Inkspiration. The challenge was to create a card using the picture below as inspiration!

For my card, I played off of the hot air balloons and some of the colors from the picture. I pulled out my trusty Celebrate Today stamp set. While most use this set to make balloons, it does include this cute little basket stamp to turn balloons into hot air balloons. Perfect for the photo! I simply inked up a few hot air balloons in some coordinating colors. I made sure to feature some great DSP from the Sale-a-Bration Carried Away pack. Love that paper so much. To finish my card, I added a few little embellishments.

  • Stamps: Celebrate Today
  • Inks: Peekaboo Peach; Watermelon Wonder; Sweet Sugarplum; Rich Razzleberry; Mint Macaron; Night of Navy; Basic Gray
  • Cardstock: Carried Away DSP; Watermelon Wonder; Whisper White

I chose to CASE this great card from Diana Eichfeld. I always love her cards. She has great attention to the little details in card making! For my CASE, I went a bit more simple, but kept the idea of the layout and layering of DSP. Apparently, I am really digging the purple and blue color combo lately. I’ve made four different cards using varying shades of purple and blue just this week!

SSINKCS35: Blue Birthday

 

Today’s card is being featured on Stylin’ Stampin’ Inkspiration. The challenge was to create a card using the sketch below.

SSINKCS35 July

I went very simple with today’s card. I played with a few different pieces of DSP to act as accompany the die cut balloon. The Irresistibly Floral paper is so versatile. This card is so simple, but I love it.

SSINKMC34: Stars and Fireworks

10339703_10206316742261178_1735897205410241504_n

Today’s card is being featured on Stylin’ Stampin’ Inkspiration. The challenge was to create a card using 3 or more elements from below. I chose to use shape, colors, glitter, and patriotic.

12299306_10156211072095573_6818632423222878194_n

I decided to use one of our great new In Colors: Dapper Denim! Real Red pairs perfectly to create a very patriotic color scheme. I stamped an image from Kinda Eclectic that reminds me of a firework. Once the sentiment was added, I evaluated the card and found it too plain. Enter glitter, gold ribbon, and gold sequins. Much much better!

Hello Again Bones!

10339703_10206316742261178_1735897205410241504_n

Today’s card is being featured on Stylin’ Stampin’ Inkspiration. The challenge was to create a card using one of our favorite products. I bought No Bones About It last year in preparation for Arthur’s dinosaur themed 2-year-old birthday party. I created so many fun projects with it. I put the stamp set away in November and it’s sat in the cabinet ever since. So, last week I was looking for some different (no flowers or butterflies) and I remembered this great stamp set. It’s fast becoming a favorite again!

SSINKIC33: Pastel Ice Cream Cones

10339703_10206316742261178_1735897205410241504_n

Today’s card is being featured on Stylin’ Stampin’ Inkspiration. The challenge was to create a card using the picture below as inspiration.

May SSINKIC33

After glancing at the picture, I immediately knew that I would use the Celebrate Today stamp set. The set makes balloons, but I could turn those into ice cream cone shapes easily.  I set about adding some pattern stamps to the plain cardstock. Finally I added a nice sentiment. Lovely card for a new baby.

Lots of Cups

10339703_10206316742261178_1735897205410241504_n

Today’s card is being featured on Stylin’ Stampin’ Inkspiration. The challenge was to create a card using Sale-a-Bration products. My favorite SAB item hands down is the Wildflower Fields DSP! I love the color combos (thank you SU for using Blackberry Bliss!) and the designs. I decided to highlight the DSP by layering lots of teacups. Fairly simple card, but I love how the DSP pops!

Washi Balloons

10339703_10206316742261178_1735897205410241504_n

Today’s card is being featured on Stylin’ Stampin’ Inkspiration. The challenge was to use some of SU’s amazing washi tape. I love washi tape and it appears on many of my cards. For this card, I wanted something big and bold. How about covering my piece of cardstock with washi tape? That’s definitely big and bold.

IMG_2502

After covering the cardstock in washi, I cut out two balloons, added a sentiment, and finished the card with a little banner. A simple card, but it makes a big statement.

From the above card I had cut out two washi covered balloons. I couldn’t just throw those in the trash. Instead I decided to make another birthday card. Another cut out balloon, a sentiment, and drawn on balloon strings complete the card. The perfect pair of cards featuring some great washi tape!

My demo group has recently started weekly challenges. Although I may not always have time to do the challenge, I love the idea. The card below was from our very first challenge over the Fourth of July. Our theme: Stars and Stripes. A few people made patriotic themed cards, but many of us took a different direction. I had fun with die cuts and pattern paper. A cute quick and easy birthday birthday card!
