Stampin’ Up! Sweet Soirée Wedding Cake Card

The Sweet Soirée Suite is definitely one of my favorites in the Occasions catalog.  The silver foil accents on the Specialty Designer Series Paper add a textured look to the designs which makes them both fun and elegant, and oh so pretty.

My card layout today is based on Freshly Made Sketches 324

To begin, emboss a panel of Whisper White card stock with the Softly Falling Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  Adhere the embossed panel to a panel of Powder Pink card stock with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere this layer to the front of the Whisper White Thick card stock base.

Next I used a die from the Layering Circles Framelits Die set to cut out a pretty cake from one of the sheets in the Sweet Soirée Specialty Designer Series Paper stack.  I cut a scalloped circle just slightly larger than the DSP piece from a Silver Foil Sheet and glued them together with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I covered the back of the Foil circle with SNAIL and used it to adhere loops of Silver Metallic Thread until I had the look I wanted.

Next I used the Light Old Olive and Dark Old Olive Stampin’ Blends alcohol markers to color the leaves on a couple of foiled vellum branches from the Sweet Soirée Embellishment Kit.  I cut two strips for banners – one in Powder Pink card stock and one in Old Olive card stock, and used my Paper Snips to notch one end of each strip.  Once I determined the desired placement, I used Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere the Powder Pink and Old Olive banners to the Whisper White layer, and then added the colored branches.  The circle art piece is adhered to the card front over the banners and branches with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I used a verse from the Special Celebrations stamp set for the card interior, stamped with Flirty Flamingo ink on Whisper White card stock .  The small floral image is fussy cut from the same “cake” sheet of DSP and adhered to the interior panel with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  The white panel is adhered to a panel of Powder Pink card stock with Liquid Glue, and the completed layer is the adhered to the interior card base, again with Liquid Glue.

Stampin’ Up! Sweet Soirée Memories & More for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

I used the Stampin’ Up! Sweet Soirée Memories & More Card Pack that is available as a free Sale-A-Bration selection to create my card for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop today.  We’ve got a sketch challenge this week and this is what I made for it:

Here is the sketch that we’re using this week:

I truly love the Sweet Soiree Suite.  The coordinating Sweet Soiree Memories & More Card Pack offered during Sale-A-Bration is surely the icing on the cake!  This card features a few of the elements from the Card Pack.

I trimmed a couple of the 3″ x 4″ cards to 2″ wide and punched one end with the Triple Banner Punch.  After determining the placement of the banners, I used Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere them to a panel of Whisper White card stock which I had embossed with the Layered Leaves Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  I trimmed the overhanging ends of the banners even with the top of the white panel.  Then I adhered the white panel to a panel of Rich Razzleberry card stock.

Next, I cut a circle from Old Olive card stock slightly smaller than a small Silver Metallic Foil Doily using a die from the Layering Circles Framelits dies . I adhered the circle to the back of the doily with Liquid Glue.  Then I used my Paper Snips to fussy cut a floral image from one of the cards in the pack and adhered it to the silver doily with Liquid Glue.  I used Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the embellished doily to the card front panel.  The sentiment banner is also cut from a card in the pack.  It is adhered across the lower edge of the doily with Liquid Glue and a Dimensional is used under the end adhered to the card front.  The completed card front panel is adhered to the Old Olive card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a Glitter Enamel Dot to the flower and a triple looped bow made with Silver Baker’s Twine to the edge of the banner as the finishing touches.  Quick and easy!

I fussy cut another floral image from a card in the pack and adhered it to a panel of Whisper White card stock with Liquid Glue.  The white panel is then adhered to a panel of Rich Razzleberry card stock, which in turn is adhered to the interior of the card. Done!  So many options and possibilities offered in this FREE card pack – be sure you get one before the campaign ends next month.

Stampin’ Up! Happy Birthday with Balloon for the Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop

Welcome back to another Inkin’ Krew blog hop!  Our very talented team is doing a blog hop featuring Stampin’ Up! products.  This month our theme is “Birthday”.  Here is the card I created:

I love offsetting sentiment dies to add depth and dimension and the Happy Birthday Thinlits die is perfect for this technique.  The font is fun and the size is perfect to stand alone as the focal point on a card front, too.

Begin by die cutting the sentiment once from Bermuda Bay card stock and twice from Basic Black card stock.  Use Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere the Bermuda Bay die cut to a Basic Black die cut.  Allow the Black to show a bit to the right and below, with no space between the two, like a shadow.  Adhere the second Basic Black die cut to the back of the first one, stacked and lined up exactly, for added dimension.

Use Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere a panel of Picture Perfect Party DSP to a mat of Basic Black card stock.  Add a panel of Lemon Lime Twist card stock as an accent, and then adhere the sentiment die cut to the card front panel at a slight angle.  (No glue on the tail of the “Y”) Adhere the completed panel to the front of a Bermuda Bay card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

 

The Berry Burst card stock balloon is the large one from the Balloon Bouquet punch.  Use a White Stampin’ Chalk Marker to add a highlight along the upper left side of the balloon.  Adhere one end of a 6″ length of Basic Black Solid Baker’s Twine to the back of the balloon with tape, then adhere the balloon to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Let the twine trail loosely below the balloon, tuck it under the “Y”, wrapping twice and then let it trail below the sentiment.  Adhere the twine to the panel below the sentiment in a couple spots with small dabs of Liquid Glue.  Tie a small bow with the Black Twine and adhere to the base of the balloon with glue.  Embellish the card front with Berry Burst and Lemon Lime Twist sequins from the Tutti-Frutti Adhesive-Backed Sequins.

The balloon on the inside panel is punched from Picture Perfect Party DSP with the small one from the Balloon Bouquet Punch.  Adhere the balloon to a panel of Whisper White card stock with Liquid Glue.  Use a Basic Black Stampin’ Write marker to draw a bow and string below the balloon.  Adhere to a panel of Basic Black card stock and then to the card interior with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Stampin’ Up! Painted Love Fun Fold Valentine

The Painted with Love Specialty Designer Series Paper has beautiful gold foil accents.  The artsy designs are fun to play with and pair perfectly with Gold Foil Sheets and Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder.

I made a fun fold card to share with you today.  Start with a standard A2 card base in Melon Mambo card stock cut 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ scored at 4-1/4″.  Score again at 1-3/4″ and  align the center of the third largest curvy heart die from the Sweet & Sassy Framelits Dies set along the fold, cutting only half way.  Cut two more hearts from the flap using the smallest and next to smallest curvy heart dies, as shown.

Cut three hearts from a Gold Foil Sheet with the same dies.  Adhere a panel of Painted with Love Specialty Designer Series Paper to the card front with SNAIL.  Adhere the Gold Foil hearts to the card base with Liquid Glue in the openings created after die cutting.

Cut a heart from Powder Pink card stock with the fourth largest curvy heart die.  Heat emboss the word “Love” from the Jar of Love stamp set with Gold Stampin’ Emboss powder.  Emboss the edges of the Powder Pink heart with Gold, as well.  Adhere the embossed heart to the Gold Foil heart with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Add a gold heart from the Metallic Enamel Shapes embellishments to complete the card front.

I cut one more heart from Powder Pink card stock using the third largest die and used Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder to add a sentiment from the January Paper Pumpkin kit.  Use Liquid Glue to adhere to the back of the heart on the card interior.

Adhere a strip of Painted with Love Specialty DSP along the right edge of a panel of Powder Pink card stock with Liquid Glue.  Adhere the card liner panel to the card interior with SNAIL.

Stampin’ Up! Truly Tailored Classy Guy

The stamps in the Truly Tailored stamp set pair beautifully with the classic masculine patterns featured in the True Gentleman Designer Series Paper making it so easy to put together classy cards for men.  Don’t miss out – the True Gentleman Suite is one of the Mega Bundle specials I am offering for a limited time!

My card layout was inspired by CAS(E) this Sketch! #255

To begin, I used SNAIL to adhere a small print panel from the True Gentleman Designer Series Paper to a panel of Tranquil Tide card stock.  I then adhered a striped panel of True Gentleman Designer Series Paper to a panel of Night of Navy card stock with Multipurpose Liquid Glue to create an accent strip.  I adhered the accent strip to the front panel with Liquid Glue and adhered the completed front panel to the card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Truly Tailored stamp set on a panel of Very Vanilla card stock with Night of Navy ink.  I used Paper Snips to fussy-cut the sentiment along the stamped outline and then used Liquid Glue to adhere it to a panel of Night of Navy card stock I had punched with the hexagonal Tailored Tag punch.  I fussy-cut a bow tie from the True Gentleman DSP and used Liquid Glue to adhere it to the tag over the image of the comb.  The completed tag is adhered to the accent strip with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I threaded a length of Linen Thread through a faux wood button from the True Gentleman Button pack and tied a knot.  I then adhered the button to the accent strip with a Mini Glue Dot.

The sentiment inside the card is from the Truly Tailored stamp set, stamped on a panel of Very Vanilla card stock with Night of Navy ink.  I used SNAIL to adhere the stamped panel to a panel of Tranquil Tide card stock.  I cut a strip of True Gentleman DSP featuring bow ties to trim the interior panel and adhered it with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  To finish, I used SNAIL to adhere the completed panel to the inside of the card base.

Stampin’ Up! Painted with Love for the Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop

Welcome back to another Inkin’ Krew blog hop!  Our very talented team is doing a blog hop featuring Stampin’ Up! products.  This month our theme is “Love”.  Here is the card I created:

The Painted with Love Specialty Designer Series Paper has sophisticated designs accented with Gold Foil on one side and brushstroke imagery on the other side.  Each gorgeous paper can stand alone, but also pairs beautifully with the others in the collection.

This card layout was inspired by Hand Stamped Sentiments #280

Begin by adhering a 3″x 3″ panel of Painted with Love Specialty DSP to panel of Melon Mambo cardstock with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Then cut a 1-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ strip of Painted with Love Specialty DSP and punch both ends with the Triple Banner Punch.  Adhere the punched strip to the 1-5/8″ x 5-1/2″ strip of Melon Mambo cardstock with Liquid Glue and trim the ends with Paper Snips, leaving a 1/16″ border showing along the punched ends.  Use Liquid Glue to adhere a panel of Whisper White cardstock to the front of the Melon Mambo card base with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Using the heart die from the Sunshine Wishes Thinlits Dies, cut one heart from Gold Foil and two hearts from Melon Mambo cardstock.  Stack the hearts together and adhere the layers with dabs of Multipurpose Liquid Glue.   

Use the “love” die from the Sunshine Wishes Thinlets set to cut two from Melon Mambo cardstock.  Stack the sentiments together and adhere the layers with dabs of Liquid Glue.  Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the square layer to the left center of the card front.  Add Dimensionals to the right end of the banner and liquid glue to the left side and adhere to the card front over the top of the square layer.  Adhere the layered heart to the banner layer as shown with dabs of Liquid Glue.  Then use Liquid Glue to adhere the “love” sentiment over the heart.  Three Gold Metallic Enamel hearts add the finishing touch.

Use Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere a Whisper White panel to the card interior.  Use the second to smallest curvy heart die from the Sweet & Sassy Thinlits Die set to cut one heart from Melon Mambo cardstock and one heart from Painted with Love Specialty DSP.  Adhere the hearts to the lower left corner of the card liner, overlapping as shown.
