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 for CYCI#98

CYCIcoloring kit 1 with markHappy birthday December babies!!! With the festivities of the holidays this time of year, I think we tend to forget that there are birthdays to celebrate too! With that in mind, I opted for a birthday card for this week’s Can You Case It Challenge.

Put A Tag On It
I took the sketch literally in regard to the tag. I used the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch and then dressed it up with Wild Wasabi Seam Binding Ribbon and Silver Cord.

Add a Sentiment
Instead of centering the sentiment on the tag as the sketch shows, I stamped it off the tag as well as on the base of the card. I used my Stamp-a-ma-jig when I stamped it on the base so that I could lined the two up.

Add the Finishing Touch of Embellishments
I was able to dust off two of my favorite punches – the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack as well as the Petite Petals Punch. I love using these two together! Sponged, stacked and dressed up with rhinestones makes such a lovely statement. Perfect for this birthday card!
