More Fun With Celebrate Today Stamp Set and Chalk Inks!

 My card design was inspired by a card I saw on Pinterest. Isn't it adorable? I am having such a fun time with the Celebrate Today stamp set and coordinating Balloon Framelits. I've said it many times before, Stampin' Up! rocks with coordinating products!

My card is a Z fold. I started with a regular card base size, 5-1/2 x 4-1/4 and folded the front flap back on itself in half. It makes for an interesting, fun card.

I embossed a piece of Pool Party cardstock using the Decorative Dots embossing folder and adhered that on the inside of the card. A piece of the Best Year Ever Designer Series Paper was adhered to the front flap. It gives the illusion of clouds. By the way, this paper pack is a FREE Sale-A-Bration choice. I can't get enough of this paper. I used it to cut out my balloon hanging from the basket as well.

To make the other balloons, I used the solid balloon image in the stamp set and stamped on a piece of Whisper White cardstock using Colorbox Chalk Ink ( in the Occasions Catalog ) Aquamarine and Yellow Citrus. This ink is so vibrant when stamped on the Whisper White! The polka dots on the one balloon is another stamp in the set stamped over the solid image.  I used my Circle Framelits to cut the balloons out because I wanted them smaller.

This card is going to a special little someone who is turning 1 next month. Maybe I need to add a number one to one of the balloons. Hmmm......what do you think?

Celebrate Today

A fun card I created using the Celebrate Today stamp set and coordinating Balloon Framelits Dies. Using the dies makes it a breeze to cut out the balloon and banner after they are stamped!

Stampin' Up! makes it so easy to put together projects with their coordinating products. I stamped the balloon on a piece of Irresistibly Yours Specialty Designer Series Paper found in the Sale-A-Bration Flyer. This white paper has a glossy white pattern and after stamping on it, or coloring it in, it reveals the pattern. I choose the polka dot pattern to coordinate with the polka dot piece that is layered on my card. That paper is from the Birthday Bash Designer Series Paper pack.

The Irresistibly Yours is free with a qualifying order. Check out page 15 of the Sale-A-Bration Flyer HERE

With the polka dots on the cute little banner as well, it all ties together to make an adorable card to give to someone who is celebrating!

Snuggles and Smooches Stamp Set

The Snuggles and Smooches stamp set had been sitting on my shelf for some time and I finally took it off the shelf and stamped some cards. It is a valentine set but I wanted to use it to make something other than valentines. I found that it was very versatile!

 The words Snuggles and Smooches bring to mind a baby for me, so my first card I paired with Little Sunshine stamp set in the Occasions Catalog. I love how it turned out!

Supplies Used:
  • Very Vanilla Cardstock
  • Wild Wasabi and Strawberry Slush Ink
  • Strawberry Slush Bakers Thick Bakers Twine
  • Little Sunshine stamp set

The large swirly stamp makes a perfect rose! For the leaves I punched out two hearts using the Sweetheart punch and decided to use the pointed end. The words are from the Simply Wonderful stamp set - a free Sale-A-Bration set!

  • Whisper White Cardstock

Here I cut apart the Oodles of Love stamp and paired it with the large Love stamp from the set. The background paper is a piece from the Irresistibly Yours Specialty Designer Series Paper from the Sale-A-Bration catalog. I sponged the background of the paper with Strawberry Slush ink to reveal the embossed leaves.

Supplies Used:
  • Smoky Slate Cardstock and Ink
  • Pink Pirouette Ink and Seam Binding Ribbon
  • Strawberry Slush Ink
