Sweet Cupcake Birthday Card


Today's card features three retiring items from the Annual Catalog...Sweet Cupcake Stamp Set, Cupcake Cutouts Framelits Dies, and Chocolate Chip Classic Stampin' Pad. I also used two items retiring from the Occasions Catalog...Picture Perfect Party Designer Series Paper Stack and Lemon Lime Twist Mini Striped Ribbon.

This is the last of three card designs that will be made at my Birthday Mini Stamp-A-Stack this Thursday. I made the card designs very easy to make, since they'll be making four of each. If you need a quick and easy card yourself, this card's for you. The other two fast and easy birthday designs are HERE.


Dimensions:
  • Pool Party:  8-1/2" x 5-1/2" (card base)
  • Lemon Lime Twist:  4" x 5-1/4" (embossed layer)
  • Bermuda Bay:  2-3/4" x 2-3/4" (scallop circle)
  • Whisper White:  5" x 2" (cupcake), 2-1/2" x 2-1/2" (circle), and 2" x 1/2" (greeting)
  • Picture Perfect Party Designer Series Paper (DSP):  4" x 2"
  • Lemon Lime Twist Mini Striped Ribbon:  6"

Instructions:
  1. Emboss the Lemon Lime Twist piece by running it through the Big Shot with the Scattered Sequins Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. With the short sides on the top and bottom, lay the DSP piece onto the Stampin' Trimmer. Line the top, left corner up with the left 1/2" mark on the trimmer, and line the bottom, right corner up with the right 1/2" mark. Once both corners are lined up, cut. Attach one of the pieces across the bottom of the embossed layer. Wrap the ribbon around the the embossed layer, up against the angled edge of the DSP, and attach the ribbon ends to the back of the piece. Fold the Pool Party piece in half (fold on the left) to form the card base. Attach the embossed layer to the center of the card front.
  2. Stamp the smallest-design cupcake icing stamp from the Sweet Cupcake Stamp Set onto the left side of the Whisper White cupcake piece using the Bermuda Bay Classic Stampin' Pad. Ink the medium-design cupcake icing stamp with the Bermuda Bay ink pad, stamp onto a scrap piece of paper, and then stamp on top of the cupcake image already stamped (stamp-off technique). Stamp the largest-design cupcake icing stamp on top using the Pool Party Classic Stampin' Pad. Die-cut it out with it's coordinating die from the Cupcake Cutouts Framelits Dies.
  3. Stamp the smallest-design cupcake cup stamp onto the right side of the same Whisper White piece using the Chocolate Chip Classic Stampin' Pad. Using the stamp-off technique (refer to above step), stamp the medium-design cupcake cup stamp on top of the first image with the Chocolate Chip ink pad. Stamp the largest-design cupcake cup stamp on top using the Crumb Cake Classic Stampin' Pad. Die-cut it out with it's coordating die.
  4. Die-cut a circle out of the Whisper White circle piece using the #5 circle die (the smallest being #1) from the Layering Circles Framelits Dies. Die-cut a scallop circle out of the Bermuda Bay piece using the #6 scallop circle die (smallest being #1). Attach the circle to the center of the scallop circle. Attach the cupcake cup onto the bottom of the circle, and then attach the cupcake icing over the top of the cupcake cup. Attach the whole thing over the right-side of the ribbon on the card using Stampin' Dimensionals.
  5. Stamp the "Happy Birthday" stamp onto the center of the last Whisper White piece using the Chocolate Chip ink pad. Cutting at an angle, cut in-between the two words. Attach the pieces to the left side of the scallop circle, tucking the ends under the scallop circle.

*Use SNAIL Adhesive when attaching, unless stated otherwise.

Short & Sweet Saturday - Heartland Birthday Card


I finally have a Short & Sweet Saturday card to share with you! I'm still not in my office, but I think my hubby will have the floor finished in there by the end of this weekend! 😍 So, I think things will start getting back to normal very soon! It's going to be so nice to know where things are again. Right now, it's spread out between three different rooms! LoL It's been a long month and a half!

This is one of the card designs for my Birthday Mini Stamp-A-Stack this Thursday. I wanted to make sure that one of the designs was a masculine one, and I really like how it turned out. I love that barn!


Dimensions:
  • Early Espresso:  5-1/2" x 8-1/2" (card base)
  • Soft Suede:  5-1/4" x 4" (embossed layer)
  • Very Vanilla:  4-3/4" x 3-1/2" (barn layer) and 3" x 1" (greeting)
  • Burlap Ribbon:  3"

Instructions:
  1. Die-cut the center of the Soft Suede piece with the largest oval die from the Layering Ovals Framelits Dies. Emboss the piece by running it through the Big Shot with the Pinewood Planks Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.
  2. Stamp the barn stamp from the Heartland Stamp Set using the Soft Suede Classic Stampin' Pad. Sponge ink from the Crumb Cake Classic Stampin' Pad all over the barn piece using Stamping Sponges. With the barn image facing up, put a Stampin' Dimensional onto each corner of the piece. Centering the barn inside the oval opening in the embossed piece, attach it to the underside of the embossed piece.
  3. Fold the Early Espresso piece in half (fold on the top) to form the card base. Put SNAIL Adhesive onto the back of the Very Vanilla barn piece, and attach it to the center of the card front.
  4. Stamp the "Happy Birthday" stamp from the Special Celebrations Stamp Set onto the smallest Very Vanilla piece using the Early Espresso Classic Stampin' Pad. Trim the left side of the piece at an angle using Paper Snips (see picture to see angle). Lining the right edge of the Burlap Ribbon with the right edge of the greeting piece, attach the top half of the ribbon to the back, bottom of the greeting piece. Trim the Burlap Ribbon at the same angle as the greeting piece, keeping it a little longer than the greeting piece. Attach the greeting to the bottom, right corner of the card base, lining the right edge of the greeting with the right edge of the embossed layer.

Use SNAIL Adhesive when attaching, unless stated otherwise.

If you have trouble opening the tutorial, make sure you have an updated pdf reader.

Share What You Love Suite Birthday Card


I'm so happy! Remember how I told you about the water damage we had in our basement about a month and a half ago? If you missed it, you can see it at the bottom of THIS POST. Well, the floor is completely finished in my classroom, and my office is SUPER close to being done. I'll take pictures once it's all done. The classroom is a bit of a mess, since everything from my office is now in there. My technique club comes tomorrow, so my wonderful hubby (with the help of our son) is going to get the rest of the floor in my office laid tonight, and then move everything out of my classroom so they can come over. I haven't had any events here since the end of March, so I'm looking forward to seeing my ladies again! We have so much fun!

I'm so sorry that I haven't posted much during our basement flooring redo. I used to work from our kitchen table at our other house, but I at least knew where I had everything. Right now, I'm working from that same table, but I don't know where a lot of my stuff is! LoL I'm so ready to have everything back in order!

I do have a card for you. I also will be having my monthly class/camp event next week. The floor should be completely done by then! 😍 This month's event is a Birthday Card Mini Stamp-A-Stack. This is going to be one of the designs made. Of course, I had to make one of the designs using the Share What You Love Suite from the upcoming 2018-2019 Annual Catalog. Want to get the products in this suite early? CLICK HERE to find out how! These special bundles are only available until May 31, 2018.

Once attached, the pearlized side should be showing underneath the front of the DSP piece. Attach the Share What You Love Specialty DSP* piece across the Old Olive piece, just below the large embossed flower. Wrap the Rich Razzleberry 1/4" Velvet Ribbon* around the top of the DSP piece, and attach the ribbon ends to the back of the piece.

Ink the medium-sized, watercolor-like image stamp with the same ink pad, stamp onto a scrap piece of paper, and then stamp over one of the flowers (stamp-off technique). Do the same with the other two flowers. Stamp the leaf branch stem stamp three times onto the flowers' stems using the Tranquil Tide ink pad (see picture for placement).Attach the piece to the upper, left side of the card using Stampin' Dimensionals (see picture).
  4. Stamp the "Happy Birthday" stamp from the Rose Wonder Stamp Set (retiring) onto one side of the Whisper White piece using the Tuxedo Black Memento Pad. Punch the greeting out with the Tailored Tag Punch. Put SNAIL Adhesive onto the back of the left side of the tag, and put a Stampin' Dimensional onto the back of the right side.
