Hello Birthday Girl

IMG_7976For a quick, simple card, Stampin’ Up!’s new stamp set “Hello” (one of the FREE items from our Sale-A-Bration catalog) is just the ticket! This card came together in no time flat. And here’s how …

IMG_8006Note Cards & Envelopes:
On page 149 of our current Annual Catalog, we feature our Note Cards & Envelopes in either Crumb Cake or Whisper White. It doesn’t get any faster or easier than to simply reach for one of these precut and prescored note cards.  Each of these packs has 20 sets of cards and envelopes for only $6.00 so they’re both quick and easy to use as well as economical!
Note: For a little added pizzazz, I covered the flap of the envelope with Birthday Bouquet DSP.

Memento Pad in Tuxedo Black:
I stamped both “hello” and “Birthday Girl” with Memento Ink. Boom. Done!

Stampin’ Write Markers:
Grab an assortment of our Stampin’ Write Markers and with the paint brush tip color each stripe of the hat with a different color. Huff on the stamp to remoisten the ink before stamping  your card.

Sooooooooo quick and easy! And adorable too!

IMG_8008Quick Tip:
The Hello Stamp Set comes in either wood block or clear. If you want exact precision in lining up the second stamp under “hello”, use our Stamp-a-ma-jig. For a video tutorial on how to use the Stamp-a-ma-jig, see this post. This is a tutorial from last year. You can find the Stamp-a-ma-jig on page 176 of this year’s Annual Catalog.

Happy Birthday with Balloon Celebration

IMG_7966What says Happy Birthday better than balloons? Perhaps the Balloon Celebration Stamp Set and coordinating Balloon Bouquet Punch!

IMG_7972The Sky
I love this sweet card. The “sky” came together with a piece of Pool Party cardstock that’s covered with a piece of vellum from the Botanical Gardens Designer Series Stack. This stack is one of the Sale-A-Bration items that can be yours for FREE with a qualifying order. 🙂
The balloons are stamped with Pool Party onto the vellum. The subtle images have the effect of balloons in the distance being obscured by clouds.

Creating Dimension:
IMG_7999Punch art and Stampin’ Dimensionals work great together to create the illusion of depth among your images.
For instance, the balloon on the far right is punched out of our new Birthday Bouquet DSP and adhered to the vellum overlay.
The two middle balloons are punched with Watermelon Wonder and Pear Pizzazz cardstock and are both elevated with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
The balloon on the far left, however, is punched out of the Pool Party/vellum base and then the entire panel is popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals with a small piece of matching DSP underneath.

Bundle for a Great Deal!
The Balloon Celebration Stamp Set and coordinating Balloon Bouquet Punch can be purchased as a Bundle which means a 15% savings for you! If you prefer, however, they can be purchased separately.
