Birthday, Handmade Cards, Kids Cards, Stampin' Up!

Yikes, a teenager in the house!

Thirteen years ago my first born arrived (after a 30+ hour labour and 9lbs) into our home turning us into a family!

I cannot believe where the time has gone, but she has been such a joy and gorgeous girl, growing into an amazing teenager. Her favourite colour is Aqua and she is not a girly, girl who likes dresses, pink or sparkles. So today’s card has been quite challenging to create.

All I knew was I needed to start with the colour palette and put 13 somewhere on the card. I got out Soft Sea Foam, Mint Macaron, Coastal Cabana, Bermuda Bay & Pretty Peacock and thought about doing an ombre effect.

I grabbed the Piece of Cake stamp set…. I mean, who doesn’t like cake for their birthday, right?!!!

To line up all those 13 cakes, yep, I managed to stamp 13 cakes, did you count them?!! The Stamparatus was the tool to use, because it was the perfect size for the clear plates to move across one notch at at time and re-stamp again and again.

Once I had stamped all those cakes and cut the white card to size, I die cut the numbers into the centre of the cake tower. I layered up the base card of Pretty Peacock, with a layer of the Noble Peacock Foil and then glued the white card front to it. The numbers were left out and Mini dimensionals were used, doubled up for the height, and added so that the foil could shine through.

I finished by adding some Wink of Stella to the numbers as well as the cake at the top!

Pink Ombre

Hello Crafters,

I was at the hairdressers the other day and the lady opposite me was having her hair coloured to be the ombre look and it gave me an idea.

So with my trusty fringe scissors I came up with this.

I have seen many cards made using this technique and being at the hairdressers reminded me to have a go!

Pink Ombre

It was a very quick card to make, selecting 3 colours of similar tones from lighter to darker. You could also do this in blues, greens, golds or even grays.

The ribbon is Pink Pirouette coordinating with the top layer. The middle layer is Blushing Bride and the bottom layer is Primrose Petals.

The sentiment is from the stamp set, Memorable Moments.

The flower is the Petite Petals punch and the centre is one of the punches from the Itty Bitty Shapes Pack (#118309).

Pink Ombre

The fringe scissors are awesome and makes this so much quicker than cutting each slice individually!

Pink Ombre

I love the rhinestones to give it an elegant touch and it really does finish it off nicely. Why don’t you give this a try.
