How fun is this sketch? I love it!!!

Directions:
  • Very Vanilla Cardstock cut to 5 1/2 x 11 and folded in half
  • Add a piece of Designer Paper and adhere at an angle and trim after. I used the Stripped piece from Timeless Elegance Designer Paper
  • Stamp the image in Black Stazon onto Very Vanilla and color with re-inkers and a aqua painter. I used So Saffron and Daffodil Delight, Pear Pazzazz and a smidge of Pumpkin Pie for the Stamens.
  • I then fussy cut it out and adhered to the front of the card straddling the stripes.
  • I had a scrap of Cherry Cobble on my desk and thought a strip of red would be just what this card needed to be a WOW! So I embossed the saying in Gold Embossing Powder and Heat Se  I then attached it to the front of the card using Dimensionals
  • I used the rest of my 6 x 6 that I cut from the DSP to cut my Envelope Liner to finish it off.
That’s it! So easy and fun. I hope you like it.

wwys cropped

Hope you are enjoying the day!! I’ve got a really fun card to share with you today featuring the Cup Cake Party Set from Stampin’ Up!

IMG_4531

Here is the set that we are featuring this week on What Will You Stamp

WWYS #21

Super simple yet fun card for any Birthday. Don’t you think?

Directions:

  • Cut your card Base to 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and fold in half
  • Cut a piece of the Designer Paper to fit the front of the card measuring 4 1/4 x 5 1/2
  • stamp the cake stand in Tip Top Taupe on a piece of white card stock landscape way and cut out using the Project Life’s Cards and Labels Framelits. I used the smaller cut so a 3 14 x 4 1/4 will fit
  • Stamp your Cup Cakes using some of the fun colors to match the sweet paper. I used Bermuda Bay, Crushed Curry and Watermelon Wonder
  • For the cupcakes I stamped on white card stock and punched out with the Cup Cake Punch. So cute!  Tip: for some of the frosting I stamped off first. to make it a little softer.
  • Adhere to the end ones to the card popping up the frosting….then pop up the middle cup cake as your visual center.
  • Stamp your little saying in Bermuda Bay and just flag the little ends and attach with a few glue dots.
  • Pop up the entire center piece onto the card base
  • I used the rest of the sheet of DSP for the envelope liner. Tip: it doesn’t have to fit the whole thing Save paper by making the insert shorter to brighten up the inside of your envelope flaps! Smile 
Supplies needed:

I  hope you enjoyed my share today. Don’t forget to see what the other Design Team Members have done….you’re going to love having several ideas for one stamp set. I know I do!
