Paper Crafting Blog Hop January 2022 - Sale-a-bration and Birthdays!

 
Welcome to our Paper Crafting Blog Hop for January 2022 featuring talented Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators. Fellow demonstrators from all over the globe including the USA, United Kingdom and Australia are participating. We have a wide array of fun projects and design styles to share with you this month - all spotlighting
projects that are Sale-a-bration/Birthdays!

~*~*~*~*~

I love the way our image stamp sets and our Designer series paper and our sentiment stamps all work together to make beautiful creations. For my card I used two Sale-a-bration products - Sunshine & Rainbows DSP and the Driving By stamp set. But I wanted to also go with the theme of birthdays, so I pulled my sentiments for this card from Best Year in our annual catalog - and they work great together!!

My card is a card on a card. This time of year I have tons of birthdays coming up - so quick and easy is the name of the game. I posted a video of a similar card and how I made it on my Facebook Live 1/7/22 - CLICK HERE.

The measurements for this one are a bit different - base is Crushed Curry 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"; DSP layer is 4" x 5 1/4". The for the little card you'll take a base of 4" x 5 1/2" and score it on the short side at 2 3/4" fold and attach to the base. Inside is Basic White 2 1/2" x 3 3/4" and a scrap of DSP. Outside is a 2 1/2" x 3 3/4" piece of Bermuda Bay; and a 2 1/4" x 3 1/2" piece of Basic White which is stamped and colored with blends. I also colored some rhinestone gems with a Bermuda Bay Blend and added as bling. I love the look and made several of the same card in no time flat - hope you liked it too!

  • Miscellaneous: Stampin’ Dimensionals (104430); Stampin’ Seal Adhesive

  • (152813); Iridescent Rhinestone Basic Jewels (158130); Real Red Faux Linen

  • Ribbon (158129)

  • Blushing Bride Card Base: 8 ½” x 5 ½”, scored and folded at 4 ¼”

  • Sweet Talk Designer Series Paper: 5 ¼” x 2 ½”

  • Basic White Insert Layer: 5 ¼” x 4”

  • Ribbon: 18”

  • Scrap piece of Basic White for stamping and die cutting.


Instructions:

Adhere your Sweet Talk Designer Series Paper to the bottom of your Blushing

Bride card base using Stampin’ Seal, ensuring you leave a 1/8” border on three sides.

Using one of the heart stamps, stamp a heart in the centre of the circle die cut

using Blushing Bride Ink, first stamping onto a scrap piece of paper and then onto the circle. This will create a light image. Then, do the same with stamping parts of the heart around the sides of the circle.

Using Real Red Ink, stamp the ‘UR CUTE’ sentiment overtop the centre heart.

In the bottom right-hand corner of the scalloped rectangle, stamp the sentiment using Real Red Ink. Stamp the sentiment using the Masking Technique, which is when you place a piece of masking tape over the parts of the stamp you don’t wish to use. Just remember to remove the tape before you stamp!

Wrap a piece of Real Red Faux Linen Ribbon around the centre of the scalloped circle and adhere by tying a bow on the left hand side. Then, adhere the rectangle to your card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Adhere your circle sentiment piece beside the bow using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Embellish with 5 Iridescent Rhinestone Basic Jewels to finish off the card.
