Stamping 411 – SSC#265

This week I needed to make a birthday card for a girl that is having a “Lady Bird Party”.  I was inspired by the Stamping 411 Saturday Sketch Challenge and used it for my card layout.  The Designer Series Papers are from Domestic Goddess (p128 IB&C) and the Birthday Wishes stamp is from Bring on the Cake stamp set (p38 IB&C).

Here is the Stamping 411 Saturday Sketch:

I was also lucky enough to have a little bag handy to put in the birthday girl’s present that matched the Domestic Goddess DSP.  To jazz the bag up, I made my own paper bow (Click HERE to see the video I followed to make the paper bow) using the Attic Boutique DSP (p17 mini).

Simply Stampin’ Challenge #69 – Vintage

This week’s challenge at Simply Stampin‘ is a Vintage theme.  I have used the Rue Des Fleurs stamp set (p16 mini) and the Attic Boutique DSP (p17 mini).

To make the centre image, I first inked up the stamp with Stampin’ Write Markers: Soft Suede, Poppy Parade and Lucky Limeade.  I then added colour with the Stampin’ Pastels: Soft Suede and Real Red.

I hope you play along with us this week!  Click HERE to see the other fabulous Design Team projects.

I also wanted to share a card I made for Simply Stampin’ Challenge Design Team member Kirei for her recent birthday.  I was inspired by my fellow SU! demo Louise sharp to use Rose Red with the Attic Boutique papers (rather than my usual neutrals!).  It looks so pretty.

Simply Stampin’ Challenge #68 – Colour Challenge

This week’s challenge at Simply Stampin‘ is a colour challenge.  I have used the stamp set Growing Green (p66 IB&C) and coloured in the images using Stampin’ Pastels (p146 IB&C).

You may have noticed I am a bit late with my entry into the challenge this week.  I have been sick for over a week now!  I have had a horrible cold/flu/sinus infection.  The first week I was sick I spent 3 days in bed.  I haven’t been able to do a lot of crafting but am feeling better so hopefully I will get some time in my craft room this week.

It is not too late to play along with the challenge but you had better get in quick!  Click HERE to see the other fabulous Design Team projects.

I thought I would also share with a card I made a few years ago now with the Growing Green stamp set.  It has been a popular card:

You can see the original post about the card HERE.

Simply Stampin’ Challenge #67 – Sketch Challenge

This week’s challenge at Simply Stampin‘ is a sketch challenge.  You need to make a project based on a sketch design.  I hope you play along with us this week!  Click HERE to see the other fabulous Design Team projects and to take a look at the sketch.

I decided to make a male card using Need for Speed stamp set (p61 IB&C) and Extreme Elements (p60 IB&C).  The Designer Series Paper is Well Worn (p129 IB&C) and is a fantastic paper to use for male cards.

I coloured the car using my blender pen and Not Quite Navy ink (click on the photos to enlarge):

Rue Des Fleurs – Thanks

This was another of my Stampin’ Up! Convention display projects.  I used the Rue Des Fleurs from the Autumn-Winter Mini Catalogue (p16).  You will notice that I added score lines to match the embossed Adorning Accents Embossing Folder using the Simply Scored Scoring Tool (p6 mini).

It is hard to tell from the photo above but I also added a lot of dimension to the umbrella. First, I cut out two layers of the stamped umbrella as I wanted ruffled umbrella edges:

Next I used the Simply Scored Stylist (that comes with the Simply Scored Scoring Tool or you can purchase it separately) and the black mat from the Mat pack.  I used circular motions on the back of the umbrella to make the paper curl.  Then on the front of the stamped image I followed the umbrella lines to indent the card stock:

Here is a picture of the inside of the card:

Tea Cup & Note Card Box

This project is one of the several Stampin’ Up! Convention display project I made.  It has a box with two drawers.  One draw is sized on hold about four Note Cards and Envelopes.  The other draw is sized to hold tea bags.  The top of the box is designed as a slider so if you pull on the ribbon/tag at the top to raise the tea cup.   The idea being that the box sits on a flat surface and you pull the slider so you can then see the tea cup.

Here are some more photos (click to enlarge):
