I’ve wanted to make one of these subway art style cards for a while and today I have to make a birthday card for my godson, so it seemed the perfect opportunity to try it out.
I’ve used the Family Party stamp set for the numbers and stars. This stamp set is on the retiring list but I higly recommend you grab it while you can, especially if you make a lot of cards featuring numbers or for family memebers. As a heads up there is nothing similar in the new catalogue.
Firstly I took a piece of Very Vanailla cardstock and gave it a very light layer of Sahara Sand using a Blending Brush, concentrating on the edges. I then took Real Red to add the numbers, Misty Moonlight to add the Happy Birthday and Mango Melody to add the stars.
The Happy Birthday greeting comes from the new stamp set Party Puffins which will be in the new catalogue released on May 4th.
Once all the stamping was complete I ran the sheet through the Brick and Mortar 3D Embossing folder and the adhered to a layer of Real Red cardstock before adding to my Very Vanilla card base.
I hope my godson likes it and that I can give him this card in person as I haven’t actually seen him since he was 10!
We’ve just had two days of glorious sunshine here in the UK which made me think ice creams outside might be a possibility over the Easter weekend. Sadly this is England so sunny periods are short lived and we’re back to wooly jumpers and cocoa beside the fire.
Anyway thought I’d still share this bright cheery ice-cream card and we can all keep our fingers crossed the sunshine makes an appearance again soon. I chose to Magenta Madness as my background colour as I think its the brightness most fun colour we have. I’ve paired that with Early Espresso and Mint Macaron to emphasize the ice-cream theme.
I used the Sweet Ice Cream stamp set to stamp my ice cream scoops and cone and the matching Ice cream Builder Punch to punch out. Then simply build your ice cream however you want, mines got Chocolate, Stawberry and Mint with Chocolate Sprinkles!
The greeting was stamped on spare cardstock in Early Espresso and fussy cut out, I’m new to fussy cutting words so I’m not 100% happy with the result but practise makes perfect. A few Magenta Madness Enamel Dots finish off the card.
It’s the pastel shades of Soft Sea Foam and Flirty Flamingo for today’s card made with the Prettiest of Birthdays stamp and die set. From banners and balloons to cake and flowers this set has a whole host of images suitable for the prettiest of birthday cards.
I’ve just used the cake image today to create this soft feminine birthday card. The background is created with a layer of Soft Sea Foam which has been run through the Tasteful Texture 3D Embossing Folder. I’ve then used one of the Square Vellum Dolies coloured Flirty Flamingo by using the new Blending Brushes from our current Mini catalogue.
I’ve added the cake image, cut the stand part off as it didn’t look quite right. I’ve fussy cut some extra flowers from the cake image to balance my card out across the sentiment label.
Today its 5 years since I signed up with Stampin’ Up! So it’s the perfect opportunity to share a bright fun birthday card using one of my favourite Stampin’ Up! products, Stampin’ Blends!!
I don’t think there’s a day gone by where I haven’t coloured something with these pens, I love them so much.
Today’s card is made from the Prettiest of Birthdays stamp set, most of the samples I’ve seen using this set have been very pastel based and feminine, so today I’ve gone bright.
The colours I’ve used are Misty Moonlight, Just Jade, Magenta Madness, Highland Heather, Granny Apple Green and Daffodil Delight and although its still a more feminine colour scheme you could eaily swap out Magenta Madness for Poppy Parade or Real Red and it would work just as well.
