Hello Cupcake card and more exciting Sale-A-Bration News!

Hi Creative Friends,

I have a cute card made with one of the Sale-A-Bration sets AND one of the brand new Sale-A-Bration Coordination items too! If you ever wished you had a matching set of Thinlits, Framelits or punch to go with those Sale-A-Bration stamp sets, your wish has come true! Check out the card I made with the Hello Cupcake stamp set and coordinating Call Me Cupcake Framelit dies!

With the new Call Me Cupcake Framelits I was able to cut out the images from the Hello Cupcake stamp set with ease! You can get these coordinating items from now until March 31st so don’t wait because they could go fast! Here is a brochure highlight all the coordinating items available:

To make the card I started with a Powder Pink card base cut to 4 1/4 X 11 inches and scored at 5 1/2 inches. I cut a piece of Melon Mambo to 3 5/8 X 4 7/8 and a piece of Whisper White to 3 1/2 X 4 3/4. I then used the sprinkle stamp from the stamp set with Powder Pink ink to stamp all over the Whisper White card stock and make my own designer series paper. Next, I used Melon Mambo, Flirty Flamingo and Powder Pink inks to stamp the cupcake icing. They were cut out with the Call Me Cupcake Framelits. I used Gray Granite to stamp the Cupcake holder. I used Melon Mambo to stamp the two sentiments on Whisper White card stock. I used the Triple Banner Punch to cut the sentiment into banners. To make the cupcake stand I first cut out the base of the stand by using Smoky Slate paper and adding a thick layer of Clear Wink of Stella over it. Then I used Window Sheets to stamp the cupcake stand cover. I wanted to be able to stick this down on my paper without it showing so I used the same framelit to cut out just the knob part with Smoky Slate paper. I then add Wink of Stella to that so it would match the base. I put the cupcake holder and cupcake together with a mix of Multi-Purpose Liquid Glue and glue dots to adhere it to my stamped, Whisper White paper. I then added a pretty bow using the Flirty Flamingo ribbon from the All My Love ribbon pack and finished things off with Pearls from the Share What You Love Artisan pearls pack.

Isn’t it great that Stampin’ Up! added Framelits and punches to match the Sale-A-Bration stamp set? Head over to my website to grab them before they sell out by clicking here.

Geared Up Garage Masculine Card

Hi Creative Friends!

I am back to share a fun Masculine card that I made for my Husband’s birthday back in January. He is a car guy, so the Geared Up Stamp Set and the Garage Gears Thinlits was the perfect set use for his card!

I started this card by stamping the car image in Basic Gray. I then used Smoky Slate Blends markers to color in the car. I used the Garage Gears Thinlits to cut out the car. I grabbed some of the Classic Garage Designer Series paper to cut what looks a bit like a blacktop road. This paper was also used for the red background. I then took my 1 inch circle punch and my 1 1/4 inch circle punch and cut out many different wheels from another sheet of the Classic Garage DSP. I randomly added the wheels to the red background. I stamped the sentiment on Whisper White paper and used my Stitched Shapes Framelits to cut it out. I then added the Black/Silver Striped Metallic Ribbon and popped up the sentiment with dimensionals. I finished off the card by layering it on Whisper White and a card base of Smoky Slate.

Last Minute Valentine!

Hello Creative Friends!

The day of hearts and flowers is so close, are you ready? You’re not? Well, I have a super easy card you could make in no time!

It doesn’t get more simple than this! All you need to make this card is Paper, Ink and Stamps! I used two stamps from the Meant to Be stamp set. The sentiment was stamped in Flirty Flamingo and the heart was stamped in Real Red. The Designer Series Paper is part of the All My Love Designer Series Paper pack and it was gives this card the wow factor even though it is such a simple card to make. The DSP was cut at 3 1/8 X 5 1/2. I added a small strip of Flirty Flamingo to make a transition color between the card base and the DSP. The card base is Real Red card stock. The card base is cut to 5 1/2 X 8 1/2 and scored at 4 1/4. I added a layer of Real Red behind the stamped heart. The dimensions of this layer is 2 3/8 X 2 3/8. The Whisper White square for the stamped image is 2 1/4 X 2 1/4. I popped up the sentiment using dimensionals and added a little bit of Clear Wink of Stella on the flower part of the heart.

You could easily make this card with any patterned paper you have that has a Valentine theme. One interesting fact is that the Designer Series Paper actually has Lovely Lipstick as the color in the hearts, but Real Red still looks great with it too! I love how versatile Stampin’ Up! makes their colors and papers!!

I hope you are getting all your Valentine treats ready to go and enjoying some crafty fun too. Come back soon for inspiration!
