Birthday, feminine, Flowers, Stampin' Up!

Hello birthday girl

Dear Crafters,

Today’s project I absolutely love but I am sad that the Greeting Thinlits and the Hello stamp set are no longer available. However, you could still create this card using different sentiments.

The card base is Wild Wasabi, with the same colour as the next layer, only 5mm shorter. This layer has sponged edges with Wild Wasabi ink. I also punched the Extra Large oval punch and sponged the edges also.

I had some printed vellum left over (retired) so I stamped the Birthday Girl image onto it and glued it to the back of the wild wasabi layer. I added the Bow Paper Clip Embellishment.

The next step was die cutting all the leaves, flowers & hello sentiment and adding them to the card with Tombo adhesive and dimensionals.

How beautiful do the embellishments of the Bow Paper Clip and Pearl Basic Jewels finish it off?!

I have used the Balloon Framelits and die cut one in some acetate to create a stencil/mask.

I placed it over the white card and sponged the Calypso Coral balloon first, then moved it down and sponged the So Saffron balloon. The next ones were Mint Macaron, Marina Mist & Wisteria Wonder.

Next I used the Greetings Thinlits and die cut the “cheers” sentiment across the balloons. I then die cut another 2 of the same sentiment from scrap white card.

I glued the card base and the stamped balloon sheet together and then glued the 3 layers of the cheers sentiment on top of each other, making sure I placed the coloured one on top! This gives that inlay look.

Last of all, I added the Wink of Stella to the top of each balloon to highlight them.

Just Add Butterflies

Dear Crafters,

Today I enter a challenge at Just Add Ink. The challenge this week is to Just Add Butterflies, JAI#272.

Butterflies #Stampin'Up!

I began by embossing the black card with the Butterflies TIEF in the Big Shot. I die cut the two banners using the Lots of Labels Framelits.

I stamped the flowers (Awesomely Artistic stamp set) in Versamark ink, then added clear embossing powder and heat set. I used the Blender Pens with Wild Wasabi ink to colour them.

Colours used: Basic Black, Melon Mambo, Wild Wasabi and Gold.

Butterflies #Stampin'Up!

The sentiment is from the Greetings Thinlits in gold glitter paper, as is the butterfly (Bold Butterfly Framelits).

Please leave a comment below, if you think my card met this sketch challenge.

Why don’t you give a challenge a go, they are so much fun. Head across to the Just Add Ink page for more inspiration and see how the designers interpreted this challenge.
