Eat Cake

The card I have for you today is another mix of products.  I love this and a adding my new favorite, the new Perennial Postage Dies.  They are such a fun addition.

Stamps and Bundles

The star of this card is hard to choose.  I love the different aspects of it.  But to begin with the stamps make sense.  I will say the cake was the inspiration.  It is from the new Hooray For Surprises Bundle.   This set has pull tab openings for a real Surprise to the recipient.  I did not go that route today and went much simpler.  I stamped the cake, which has a matching die, and then added the candle and flame, which do not have dies.

The sentiment matches the cake, but is from a different set.  It is from the Heartfelt Hexagon Bundle. I loved the boldness of this one.  And let’s face it, eating the cake is the star attraction!  The fun opening is the Heartfelt Hexagon Punch.  I really love punches and this is a good one.   It is a great size for most of our sentiments and I like the shape.  Plus using it as an opening like this is an added bonus!

Papers

The papers I chose for this card are much more subtle than my normal colors.  Of course the DSP was the color decider.  This is a piece from the Lighter Than Air Designer Series Paper.  It has such great colors that it was difficult to choose only a couple.  I decided on highlighting the flame from the candle and went with Lemon Lolly for the card base.  Surprising to myself, I did not add a layer between the base and the DSP.  That is also very different for me.  And then the Postage layer in White.  Wow!  But I did use the bright Azure Afternoon for the sentiment and the cake to make up for the less layers.

More Dies and Finishes

The fun outline of the layer is the Perennial Postage Stamp Dies.  This is the 2nd largest of the dies.  I love the Scalloped Contours Dies that are similar sizes, but this gives a unique and different shape.  You will be seeing more of the these guys for sure.  To finish the card I went with fun shapes instead of bling.  The flowers and heart on the cake and card are from the Adhesive Backed Hearts & Flowers embellishments.  They add a Fun look and I though went well with the colors of the papers.

Taco Appreciation

The card I have today is one for a Team Member’s 5th Anniversary with me.  I wanted a fun card and this one is with the Taco Fiesta set.

 

Stampin' Up!, Taco Fiesta, Brewed For You, Biggest Wish, Bright & Beautiful, Jackie Beers

Stamp Sets

The very fun set of Taco Fiesta is a great set for anyone.  And I do love that it will work for men, women, and children, since most people like Mexican food.  I know I do!  So I made a bright and happy card with the images.  All of the images are stamped and then colored with Stampin’ Blends.  They are all fussy cut, but all of the images are easy to cut out.  The confetti is done in the different paper colors of the card for some added brightness.

The second set used is the Brewed For You set.  A margarita is a nice compliment to some tacos I believe!

 

And the final stamp set is the Biggest Wish.  This one has the different sizes of a few sentiments.  I chose the Thanks for this card.

Colors

The brightness of the Bright & Beautiful Designer Series paper fits great with the fun theme.  And of course the other colors can easily be pulled from those bright stripes.  I used Lemon Lime Twist, Bubble Bath and of course Basic White.  Although the first two are not ones that you would normally put together!  There is also the Azure Afternoon for the “thanks” sentiment.  I love bright and happy and this one fits the bill!

Finish

To help the taco images pop a bit, I added a 1 3/4 Circle of the striped DSP.  Then with the fun sentiment simply stamped on white, it needed a little something.  I used the Sheer Ribbon Combo in the blue attached to the back of the strip to ground it and let it pop against the other white.  There are also a scattering of the Tinsel Gem 4 pack embellishments.

Thank you for stopping in today!!

Truckin’

My card today is showcasing a look at the Trucking Along Bundle.  Hopefully you were able to get it last week.  If not, do not fret, it will be coming back!  I understand why it was so popular and even extra supply was exceeded!  This is a year round set.

 

Stampin' Up!, Trucking Along, Zany Zoo, Glorious Gingham, Banners Pick A Punch, Jackie Beers

 

Stamp Bundle

This great Tucking Along Bundle is a Punch Bundle!  Those are my favorite.  Punch bundles are less expensive and just as fun!  However this stamp set has so many extra stamps!  There are a variety of additions for the back of the truck and added scene images. The truck is great on it’s own but also has additional wheel wells, side window, and tires included in the punch.

My truck is stamped and colored with Real Red Stampin’ Blends.  I added the bed rails as well as some gifts in the bed.  A tip for you is for when you fussy cut the rails and gifts, leave the bottom of each long.  I adhered the extra length for each to the backside of the truck.  It is so much easier to do than trying to layer in place.

Background

Last week I used a watercolor background for Zany Zoo and now I have repeated that for the truck.  Watercolor Paper is used along with the Water Painter brushes.  The colors used are Azure Afternoon, Old Olive, and Pecan Pie.  The truck was then added using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Papers and Sentiment

To highlight my red truck, I went with Real Red as the card base.  And to carry on the wood of the bed rails and tree branch I went with the Pecan Pie Glorious Gingham.  Since this is a guy card, I did not use bling.  That is shocking even to me!  But I did use the Banners Pick A Punch to flag the ends of the sentiment.  And the sentiment is from the Zany Zoo stamp set.

Thank you for stopping by today!!

A Star

The Beautiful Balloons Bundle is a fun one for a multitude of reasons and uses.  Plus the Bright & Beautiful DSP is exactly what the name says!

Stamp Bundle

I have used both the stamps and the dies for today’s card.  As I said in the beginning it has a lot to offer.  There are cute and versatile sentiments to go with fun images.  And the Dies are just as wonderful.  I have showcased two from the dies with the tag and the star.  The sentiment is from the stamp set.  This card would work for a variety of reasons.  Since Graduation is fast approaching, I believe it would be a cute Graduation card.

Papers

To go along with the Beautiful Balloons Bundle, I used the matching DSP.  It is the Bright & Beautiful Designer Series Paper.  This is one of the 6×6 packs, which I love.  Both of the pieces I used are from the pack.  There are fun and “Party” type sheets, as well as some more generic ones.  But they all coordinate.

To pull the colors from the paper for the card base was so easy.  I went with the boldness of Berry Burst.  This returning color is a wonderful one.  And I paired it with the softer, but totally new, Lemon Lolly.  This is a bright but light yellow.  I think the two work great together to separate and highlight the DSP pieces.

Finishes

For finishing the tag I turned to the 2022-2024 In Color Baker’s Twine.  I am so happy this carried over.  Baker’s Twine is such a great accent and so easy to work with.  I doubled the twine and made the Vera Bradley pull.  It stays in place much better than the old bookmark loop.

As the final touch I added some of the Adhesive Solid Gems.  That is such a plain name for some adorable colored gems.  They are in Lemon Lolly, Boho Blue, and my guess is Copper Clay.  But I love the look of them.  So I scattered some around on the blue DSP and the tag.

 

Thank you for visiting today!  Happy Cinco De Mayo and I hope you have a great weekend.

Fancy Flowers

The project I have to share to do is a bit of a different look for me.  This one uses the large card front size die in the Two Tone Flora Die set.   The unusual part is that I don’t generally use those large dies, and that I used DSP as the paper for it.

 

Stampin' Up!, Two Tone Flora Dies, Fancy Flora DSP, Art Gallery, Jackie Beers

Die

This full size die is beautiful.  And as I mentioned, quite different for me.  I love the look, but do not think to use these.  In this instance, the DSP was what prompted it.  And this Die has so much gorgeous detail that it would work with anything.

Paper

The DSP is the Fancy Flora Designer Series Paper.  While I was sorting through it to pick a layer, I had the large die on my desk.  Looking at the paper and then the Die was like a commercial of bumping into each other and the mix working. Since it was a floral die, I pulled color from the DSP piece to choose the other colors.  The strip for the sentiment is the opposite side of this DSP piece.

Stamps and Finishes

With the Die and the paper, the stamp set was the least of the products on this card.  But this simple sentiment is from the Art Gallery stamp set.  To finish everything I added a scattering of the 2021-2023 Opal Dots.  These are the outgoing In Colors.  So I mixed some of the Evening Evergreen ones with a few of the Pale Papaya and love the result.  This card uses very little in the number of products and would work with any DSP!

Moving On To Retirement

Today’s projects is a Retirement card using the Special Moments and Best Delivery stamp sets.  Moving On To Retirement is a good thing!

 

Stampin' Up!, Best Delivery, Special Moments, Senior Years, Jackie Beers

 

Stamps

Making it to Retirement is a wonderful event.  But cards are a bit difficult for this, and especially when it is a man!  However, as soon as I saw the big moving truck, I knew it would make a perfect retirement card.  Guys like motor vehicles and it has that large side for the announcement.  So Best Delivery stamp set to the rescue!

For the sentiment, I turned to the Special Moments stamp set from Sale-A-Bration.  That set has amazing sentiments for so many occasions.  And to add some excitement to a large truck, I used the balloons from Best Delivery set, in two colors, blowing out the back.  I can envision using this truck for other announcements now.  On the inside, I stamped the Happy Retirement sentiment from Senior Years stamp set.

Colors

Since the truck is rather large, I went with a couple of cardstock layers instead of DSP.  Not a lot of the layers are actually seen.  So Bumblebee and Misty Moonlight were my colors of choice.  And that is definitely a change for me since I tend to use multiple pieces of DSP on a card!  For the truck to be lighter and allow the outlines to show, I went with Balmy Blue Stampin’ Blends for the cab and boarder of the cargo part.

I hope you will see this truck in a new light now and consider all of the “Announcements” that it can be used for.
