Margarita Happy Birthday

Hello, my stampin friend and happy Friday.
This week I had a chance to play with Lemon Zest bundle and created 2 cards for my Crafting Happy Hour class. This card is my favorite and wants me just to take a glass and go lay down next to the pool.
Want to know how to make this card?

Cutting Measurements:
  • Lemon Lime Twist: 5 ½ x 8 ½” card base; ¼ x 3 ½ “ for straw 
  • Basic Black CS: 4 x 5 ¼ ” 
  • Whisper White CS: 3 7/8 x 5 1/8 ” and piece for punching 
  • Vellum: 3 x 3 ½ “ 
How Tos:
  1. Create card front from Lemon Lime Twist CS by scoring at 4 ¼”. 
  2. Stamp “Happy Birthday” in memento black ink on the bottom of the Wisher White piece. Stamp lemon slice 3 times in Lemon Lime on the left side (make sure you only do halves, otherwise it will be visible through the glass). Adhere White piece to Basic Black CS and then to card base. Set aside.
  3. Let’s create a glass. Lightly mark velum at ¾ from both sides of 3” side (red marks on a diagram below). Using paper trimmer – cut from one corner to a marked point on one side, repeat on another side. Use scoring blade now and create a score line ¼” from a side of the ‘glass’ by aligning a side with ¼ mark on a trimmer. You should get following shape: Green indicated scored lines. Apply tear tape between the scored line and edge. Fold on a scored line. Sponge the ‘glass’ with sponge dauber and Lemon Lime Twist ink on inside, leave some white space on top.
  4. Remove tear tape and adhere glass to the card front from step 2. Try to make a shape little round. 
  5. Stamp 2 more slices on scrap piece of whisper white in Lemon Lime Twist ink. Punch them with 1 ¾” punch. Cut a slit from a side to the center on first piece of lime. Add dimensionals to the back and decorate the glass with it. Cut 3 pieces from second lime. Add dimensionals and add to the bottom of the glass on the right side. 
  6. Adhere ‘straw’ inside the glass. 
Want to receive already cut and scored glass pieces? Place the order in my store using hostess code  ZYS4CDXR by the end of July and I will mail you this card and 6 'glasses' so you can recreate it in any color.

Happy Stamping!

CASE Monday - Floral Phrases

Hello, my stamping friends and happy 4th of July!
Even so I am posting on Tuesday - this set was designed for Case Monday. I am still little behind after my 4 weeks long vacation. Do you often use inspiration when crafting? Many times I am not really sure where to start with all fabulous products Stampin Up! has to offer. This was a case for me last week. And I came across the card designed by Sandi Maciver some time ago. This card immediately inspired me and was a perfect for me to case using new in-colors.
You maybe thinking - why to create in different colors vs just pick one color and create multiples. Of course, most of us have a favorite color and like to use it all the time. And some colors - we just not really sure yet. Creating same card in different colors is an easy way to give 'less loved' ones a try. In my case - I loved Lemon Lime twist the most and was not sure about others. Using them several times by creating cards with same layout - completely changed my view.
Fresh Fig - it is very bold color, but with this layout and a lot of white, this color is very elegant:
Lemon Lime Twist - very soft, spring like card
Berry Burst - doesn't it say summer like no other colors?
Tranquil Tide - it is very elegant and may be most unexpected for me to like
Powdered Pink - even so I am not 'pink' type of girl, I actually really like this card. I lightly sponged the stamp with berry burst ink after inking it with powdered pink to make flower pop:
Now I am thinking - I could do mix and match using designer paper square in one color and stamped image in another, hmmm possibilities are endless. 
  • Crumb Cake - 5.5 x 8.5 scored at 4.25
  • Designer Paper 4.25x4.25 square
  • Whisper White: 4 x 4 and 3/4 x 5 for sentiment
What is your favorite? Which color you would like to make?
Happy Stamping!

Hello, my stamping friend.
I am back from my 4 weeks amazing trip with my family. I missed my stamping room and all my new goodies from the Annual Catalog that were waiting for me home. Classes are scheduled, ribbon share done, now is a time to update my blog.
I want to let you know that Daisy Delight punch and bundle are back. They were so popular, that punch was sold out during a pre-order and was not available when catalog went live! I was the lucky one to get it, but was not able to have plan the class. Now it is back! Order yours as supplies are limited.
Here is a card for you using this bundle:
This card will look great in any color, don't you think?
  1. Stamp the daisy image in Calypso Coral ink on the Calypso Coral card base, then rotate the stamp and stamp again to create a fuller flower. Repeat to cover the card base. Color the flowers using Calypso Coral and Daffodil Delight Watercolor Pencils. 
  2. Cut two hollow squares from Soft Sky Cardstock using the Big Shot and the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies. Adhere them to the card using Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals. 
  3. Fold and adhere a piece of 1/2" Lace Trim to the card. 
  4. Stamp large and small daisies in Calypso Coral ink on Whisper White Cardstock. Color the images using the Calypso Coral Watercolor Pencil. Punch out the two large daisies using the Daisy Punch; offset and adhere together using a Stampin’ Dimensional. Cut out the three smaller daisies. Wind a length of Silver Metallic Thread and adhere the thread and all the daisies to the card. 
  5. Stamp a flower center in Daffodil Delight ink on Whisper White Cardstock and color it with the Daffodil Delight Watercolor Pencil. Cut it out and adhere it to the center of the large daisy. 
  6. Stamp the sentiment in Old Olive ink on a piece of Whisper White Cardstock by combining words from separate stamps. 
  7. Stamp three leaves in Old Olive ink on Whisper White Cardstock. Color them using the Old Olive Watercolor Pencil. Cut them out and adhere the leaves to the card using Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals. Adhere three Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card.

Happy Birthday, Gorgeous

Hello, my stamping friend.
"Happy Birthday, Gorgeous" is a new fun stamp set. It is not only has many great sentiments in funky fonts, but many great images to create a collage. They range from flowers to balloons and cab be used for any gender and age cards. I choose to start with flowers (no surprise here, as I just in love with any flowery images). I also used 2 new in-colors, but this card can be defiantly created in any color combo:
Want to know how to make it?

Cutting Measurements:
  • Berry Burst: 5 ½ x 8 ½” 
  • Whisper White CS: 3 x 4” and piece for punching 
  • Old Olive CS: 3 ¼ x 4 ¼” and piece for punching 
  • Designer paper: 1 ½ x 5 1/2” 
  1. Create card front from Berry Burst CS by scoring at 4 ¼”. Using outlined flower stamp randomly stamp the right side of the card front in Berry Burst Ink. Adhere designer paper to the left side of the card front. 
  2. Stamp few small and big solid flowers in powder pink ink on top left and bottom right of whisper white CS leaving the center empty. Stamp outlined flower in Berry Burst ink on top of bigger flowers and outlined small flower in Calypso coral ink over small solid flower (2 way stamping). Randomly stamp small leaf in Old Olive. Then fill empty space around flowers by stamping swirly image in Daffodil delight. 
  3. Adhere stamped whisper white piece to old olive CS. Wrap Daffodil delight ribbon and tie a bow toward the left side. Adhere the panel to the card front with dimesionals.

Cat the old olive label into 4 pieces diagonally and adhere behind whisper white label creating a border. Add the “Happy Birthday” piece to the card front in a center over the ribbon with dimensionals.
