Celebrate Summer Sorbet

Summer Sorbet heart

 


 

Lots of different Stampin’ Up! stamp sets and accessories going on in this simple card.  Sometimes one set just won’t do!  Summer Sorbet is a set of really great bold images, but you’ll need to grab your sentiments elsewhere.  And who can resist using the background stamp from Best Birds on everything.  You’ll need that stamp set just for this great stamp alone!

  • My color scheme is a bit unusual for this card, although I think it works – Soft Sky, Smoky Slate, Rose Red, Rich Razzleberry and Peekaboo Peach.
  • The pretty designer paper is from A Little Foxy Paper Stack.  Remember to use the plainer papers with other stamp sets – it doesn’t just coordinate with the fun Foxy Friends stamp set!
  • Love this fun-shaped heart, stamped using a Rose Red stamp pad.  Just cut it out quickly with Paper Snips and pop it up on Dimensionals.
  • The sentiment comes from Thoughtful Banners and is bundled with the Duet Banner Punch to save you 10%.  This combo will become a staple in your card designing!
  • I miss the scallop border punch like crazy.  But fear not – your Layering Squares Framelits will do the trick!  I’ve added a Peekaboo Peach Heart Enamel Shape to coordinate both with the Peekaboo Peach scallops and the heart motif.  These little shapes are so easy to use with self-adhesive backing – you’ll want them in ever color!

Number of Years

Number of Years Birthday1

 


 

One of the best parts of making your own cards is personalizing them.  And what better way to personalize than using numbers!  The coordination of Number of Years stamp set and Large Numbers Framelits by Stampin’ Up! are perfect to fit all your needs.  Create birthday, anniversary or even graduation cards with this great combination!

  • Buying a Designer Series Paper Stack in your favorite color collection is a terrific way to always have pretty paper on hand in the color you need.  Here I’ve used the Night of Navy stripe found in the Regals Paper Stack.
  • I’ve also punched three balloons with the Balloon Bouquet Punch using Real Red, Crushed Curry and Night of Navy polka dot papers found in the Paper Stacks.  The Real Red comes from the Brights Collection; the other two are also pare of the Regals Collection.  I love that you can choose from two different sized balloons in one punch!
  • I’ve hand drawn the balloon strings with a Night of Navy Stampin’ Write Marker.
  • In order to get the curve just right on the sentiment, I stamped it on Whisper White Cardstock using Night of Navy Ink, then used two Oval Framelits to create the curve.  Just look at how easy it is!  Then just snip the ends into a banner.

An Open Heart for Mother’s Day

AnOpenHeart



Oh, how I love this soon-to-be-retired stamp set called An Open Heart!  It’s just perfect for so many occasions!  I’m posting this today as a Mother’s Day card idea; as a mom, I can’t imagine any more touching sentiment to receive from your child!  But also think anniversary or sympathy cards.

        • Stamping on designer paper is one of my favorite looks.  I’ve used the Farmers Market Designer Series Paper here.  This packet surprises me all the time.  At first look, all you see is fruit and vegetables, but the flip side are some of the nicest neutral papers!  This paper pack is also due to be retired.
        • I doubt that there’s a bird that is colored this way in “real life” but of course as stampers, we have to match our cardstock theme, right?!  I’m also honoring our retiring In Colors – Hello Honey, Lost Lagoon and Mossy Meadow (used as the thin border behind the designer paper).  Watercolor paper is definitely the choice to feature this pretty bird and watercoloring with the Aqua Painter and stamp pads.  Circle Framelits create the backdrop; another retiring product!
        • Also retiring are the Antique Brads – I’ve loved working with these pretty accents!
        • As I created this card, a robin is building her nest right outside my window, busy carrying all sorts of plant material and tucking it in place.  It reminded me of the Linen Thread tied around my card – the perfect texture for a natural look.
        • I swear I won’t every be able to get rid of my Envelope Liner Framelits, even though they’re retiring.  They give such a perfectly coordinated card and really hits it home on the creativity.  Be sure to pick up yours if you don’t already own them – they are truly a “must have” for all of your cards!
