Life’s Short | Fun Birthday Card

I had a blast making this birthday card and I just I just love how fun and colorful it is.

Life's Short Birthday

A panel was cut from the Birthday Pop Prints (PP-0052) and adhered to a piece of Watermelon Fusion (CS-0039) card stock before being adhered to a Beach Breeze (CS-0088) card base.  [the Birthday Pop Prints are part of the Retirement sale so don’t delay in ordering, it is available while supplies last or until June 30, 2018.  Lots of items are selling out fast!!]  Black Licorice (IP-0143)  and Beach Ball (IP-0145) silk was added.

The cake images come from Let’s Eat Cake (SS-0555)  was stamped in Black Licorice ink (IP-0041) onto Whip Cream (CS-0040) card stock and cut out using the Amaze Machine (TO-0134) [see below on how you can get the Amaze Machine for Free*] and the Journey Circles (DI-0039) dies. Colored it in using the Journey Color Burst Pencils (JM-0077).  This was popped up onto the card front using Foam Squares (AD-0085).  On a piece of Pool Play cardstock (CS-0092), I stamped the saying in Black Licorice ink (IP-0041) that comes from the Bowled Over (SS-0580) stamp set and cut out using the Journey Circles dies.  This was popped up onto the card front using Foam Squares (AD-0085).

The Dandelion Wishes (SS-0497) stamp set is still one of my favorites.  I like the simple look of this card.

Thank You | Simply Gold

I love our Journey Tape but don’t use it nearly enough.  I tend to hoard it because I love how pretty it is.  This is a great card option for those that don’t like to do a lot of stamping on their cards.

Thank You Gold Tape copy

On a Whip Cream (CS-0040) panel, I attached Simply Gold Journey Tape (AC-0294) at an angle. The  Thank You stamp was stamped in Black Licorice (IP-0041) ink and comes from the Embroidered Greetings (SS-0507) stamp set.  [I love the stitching detail on this stamp – so unique].

Thank You Gold Tape2

This panel was adhered to a Black Licorice (CS-0003) panel before being adhered to a Whip Cream card base.

The inside saying was stamped in Black Licorice ink and comes from the Celebrate Everything stamp set (SS-0579). 

Thank You Gold Tape3

I love how this card turned out.

Here are the measurements:
Whip Cream card base = 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 scored at 4 1/4 and another piece cut to 3 3/4 x 5
Black Licorice = 4 x 5 1/4

Thinking of You

I love the simple and clean look of the Sweet You (SS-0099) stamp set that is on the Retirement List. [I know, I am shocked too – it is so pretty].  I stamped the images from this set in Citrus Cooler ink (IP-0048) onto a piece of Pineapple Smoothie (CS-CS-0026) cardstock.  The images were colored in using Lemon Drop Acrylic Paint (JM-0103) and a Medium Blending Brush (TO-0098). [you put some acrylic paint on a clear block and add water from the blending brush, then color in your image – leave me a comment if you would like me to do a video on how to do this].

Thinking of You Sweet You2

 

This panel was adhered to a Black Licorice (CS-0003) panel before being adhered to a Rock Candy (CS-0031) card base.

Thinking of You Sweet You

The sentiment was stamped with Rock Candy ink (IP-0028) and comes from Bloom Burst (SS-0431) stamp set.  The inside sentiment comes from the Every Day (SS-0164) and was stamped in Rock Candy ink as well onto a Pineapple Smoothie (CS-0026) panel.

Congratulations | Flower Swirl

I have to be honest, I am not a pink person.  Never have been. But I have to say that I love our Bubble Gum cardstock, ink, silk, etc.  Never thought I would say that I like pink, but I really like the Bubble Gum.

Congratulations Florwer Swirls4

On a Bubble Gum (CS-0099) card base, I stamped the Congratulations in Black Licorice ink (IP-0041) that came from the Must Have Sentiments (SS-0501).  Then I stamped one of the floral images from the Flower Swirls (SS-0454) in Bubble Gum Ink (IP-0058).  [The Flower Swirls have coordinating dies available and it does come in a bundle, I’ll put those in the supply list below as well].

Congratulations Florwer Swirls3

On a piece of Whip Cream (CS-0040) cardstock, I stamped the floral images in Clear Pigment (IP-0102) ink and embossed them with White Embossing Powder (IP-0098).  Using the Large Dauber (TO-0138), I inked it up in Bubble Gum ink and in a circular motion added color to this panel.  The flowers were then shaded a little more in certain areas using a Blending Brush (TO-0097) and our Color Splash Watercolor Pencils (JM-0078).

Congratulations Florwer Swirls1

This panel was adhered to a Sweet Berry (CS-0034) using Easy Glide (AD-0081) and then adhered to a Black Licorice (CS-0003) piece before being adhered to the card front.  To finish off the outside, I adhered Journey Sequins – Bloom Time (AC-0114) with Glue Dots (AC-0083).

The inside sentiment came from the Celebrate Everything (SS-0579) stamp set. This set is becoming my go to set for sure.

Congratulations Florwer Swirls2

Here are the measurements:
Bubble Gum = 4 1/4 x 11, scored at 5 1/2
Black Licorice = 4 1/2 x 2 1/2
Sweet Berry = 4 1/4 x 2 1/4
Whip Cream = 4 x 2 and 4 x 5 1/4 (this is for the inside panel)

Happy Adventure

I LOVE how this card turned out.  I hope you do too.  I used a lot of different stamps on this card but to me it was worth it.  Don’t fret, there is a video as well.

Happy Adventure4

I used Cool Pool (CS-0118) for the card base and added a Black Licorice (CS-003) card panel to the front.  On a Whip Cream (CS-0040) I stamped the following images:

Ink Splat (AT-0108) stamp to make the dirt.  I stamped the smaller end into Oatmeal Cookie (IP-0011) and stamped it onto the card panel.  I cleaned the stamp and then stamped it in Hazelnut Blend (IP-0012) and offset the stamping a bit to give it more of a 2 tone dirt look.

Trees (from the Fresh Forest Stamp Set (SS-0487) = the large one was stamped in Kiwi Slice (IP-0024) ink, stamped off on a scrap sheet of paper before being stamped onto the card panel.  The small one was stamped in Kiwi Slice (IP-X0024 and then stamped directly onto the card panel.

Sunshine (My Sunshine ATS (AT-0286) = was stamped in Lemon Drop (IP-0043) ink, stamped off on a scrap sheet of paper before being stamped onto the card panel.

Happy Adventure1

I used the decorative Circle images from the Sunday Morning Stamp Set (SS-0570) in Cool Pool (IP-0074) ink.  On a scrap piece of Whip Cream card stock, I stamped the circle images before stamping the Scenic Route sentiment (AT-0287) in Black Licorice ink.  The ends were flagged before adhering it to the panel.  I used a piece from the Sweet Romance Tape (AC-0290) [this is a Bloom Benefit that you can get free with an order of $100 or more].

Happy Adventure2

The truck came from the Happy Adventure (SS-0565) stamp set and was stamped in Black Licorice ink.  I used a Blending Brush (TO-0098) and some splashes to color in the truck.   Watermelon Fusion Splash (IP-0083) to color in the tail lights.  Shimmer Silver Splash (IP-0082) was used to color in the bumper and Cool Pool Splash (IP-0076) was used to color in the truck.  I used Just Write Gels (JD-0060) to color in the flowers in the truck bed.  Using the Detail Pro Shears (TO-0063), I cut out the truck and popped it up onto the card front using Foam Squares (AD-0085).

Happy Adventure

The inside sentiment comes from the Happy Sentiments (SS-0304) stamp set and was stamped in Black Licorice ink onto a Whip Cream panel.
