Wonderful Wreath and Happy Birthday Everyone

Happy birthday everyone with wreath

This card came from an idea I had about the Wonderful Wreath Framelits by Stampin’ Up!  I wanted to use the pieces to this framelits set to create a summer wreath for a special birthday card.

  • The colors I chose are Melon Mambo, Hello Honey, Night of Navy and Old Olive.  They’re the colors in the English Garden Designer Paper, minus a couple, but worked really well for the wreath.
  • I started by cutting out the wreath base using Old Olive Cardstock with the two wreath framelits – both the inside and the outside pieces.  This allows some of the green to peek through so that you don’t have to cut out extra leaves.  Here’s a photo of how the wreath begins:

Wonderful Wreath and Big Shot

  • Cutting out all of the flowers is a breeze with the Framelits.  I doubled the cardstock, cutting two at a time, and the framelits cut through both layers nicely.  “Scrunching” the cardstock flowers made them a bit more three dimensional.
  • The centers of the flowers are created with the 1/4″ Circle Handheld Punch; use a 2-Way Glue Pen to adhere them all.
  • A pretty Night of Navy 1/2″ Seam Binding Ribbon is the perfect accent to the wreath, held in place with a Glue Dot.

  • My sentiment comes from a host-exclusive stamp set called Happy Birthday, EveryoneHere’s another card using this great set.  Choose this stamp set as a free gift when you order a minimum of $150 in products in my Online Store (before tax/shipping).

  • And inside the card, I used the “happy birthday” sentiment from the same set stamped in Night of Navy Ink – such a pretty combination of fonts!

Hello Love Valentine

Hello Love

Here’s a quick and easy card using just 2 punches and one stamp from Stampin’ Up!  It’s definitely a Valentine’s Day kinda card, but it could be used all year long.  Who wouldn’t like getting this card in any month!

Not sure where the “hello love” came from?  That’s because it’s from a retired hostess set called Good Greetings.  Here’s a photo of all the great sentiments contained in this one set.

Good Greetings

Since Good Greetings is retired, you can replace the sentiment with something else appropriate that you have.  But wait – I just happen to have an extra copy that’s never been used!  Leave a comment to this post and let me know which sentiment is your favorite from this set.  I’ll do a random drawing from the comments below.  Saturday, January 17th, is my birthday, and to celebrate I’ll choose a winner on that day.  I’ll announce the winner here on my blog, so be sure to leave a comment now then check back on the 17th to see if you’ve won!

Now on to telling you about my card.  Color scheme is Blackberry Bliss, Tangerine Tango and So Saffron – these colors work so well with each other, even though they aren’t in the same color collection!

  • Begin creating the circle heart images by using the heart punch from the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack.  Punch into the cardstock then using the 1″ Circle Punch, punch around the heart.  It’s much easier in this order!
  • Save out one of the punched hearts and pop it up on a Dimensional next to the sentiment.
  • A little Tangerine Tango Baker’s Twine is all the accessory you need with this fun layout.

Enjoy creating your own card and have fun playing with different color schemes.  This is a non-traditional Valentine’s Day color combo and if you’d prefer, you can try it in pinks and reds, maybe with some black.

Technique Thursday class tomorrow – or On the Go!

I think this is my most favorite punch art class yet – I just love that cute little penguin, and the polar bears are darling.  The wreath and door work so well for a beautiful holiday card.

And at technique class you'll learn how to create some wonderful techniques on some very special cards.

Technique Thursdays are the home of TWO, regular classes — Technique Geeks and Punch Art! You are welcome to take 1 class or both classes in a session.

At each class, you'll create 3 cards and 3 resource pages — this way you're really learning the techniques and/or punch art creations. Not only will you go home with a completed "finished product" but you'll reinforce what you've learned on a 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" resource page, and receive a clear envelope to place over it for safe keeping. Refer back to what you've learned at home!

On your first Technique Thursday Class – you'll receive a complementary binder ring and printed cover to jump start your collection!

These classes are ALL available "On the Go!" if you can't attend! This way, you never have to miss out on fabulous techniques and punch art creations.
