Party Animal

Hello Stampin’ Friends!  Today is my daughter’s 28th birthday! Wow how time flies!  We are going to celebrate with her tonight! And although I’m not going to share the birthday card I created for her (just in case she reads this) I will share a fun little birthday card idea with all of you. This particular card was created with several leftover scraps that I had on my crafting table.  My goal this year is to use up my scraps (instead of storing them). 🙂

The card showcases some of the fun color combos and paper from the Party Animal Designer Series Paper (DSP) pack. To make this card, start with a piece of Pacific Point cardstock for the base of your card. Now I was using some leftover scrap pieces of the Party Animal DSP so each piece measures about 4-1/2 x 1-1/4 inches. I simply adhered them to the card front as shown; tuck a little doily under the right hand side of the DSP. I ran a few strips of some scrap ribbon down the center of the DSP to cover up the spot in which they overlapped. Stamp the birthday sentiment, using Pacific Point ink, on a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock and cut it out with one of your circle framelits; you will need about a 2-1/2 in sized circle. Then cut out a scalloped circle from a piece of Tangerine Tango cardstock to “matte” out your sentiment. To give your card a bit of dimension, stamp the sentiment again on a piece of white cardstock, using Emerald Envy ink, and cut out the “Happier Birthday” section and make a little banner. Adhere this across the circle as shown.  It’s a simple way to add two different colored inks to your sentiment!  For the finishing touch, embellish with a few metallic enamel shapes! Enjoy!

Delicate Details Easter Eggs

Hello Stampin;’ Friends!  I have been busy working on a variety of Easter projects this past weekend!  Hope you had some time to get crafty too!  Today I want to share a fun way to use the Delicate Details Sale-A-Bration stamp set!  It is the perfect set for “decorating” your Easter Eggs…your paper ones, that is.

All you need is a punch or framelit to cut out some oval shapes and the Delicate Details stamp set! Well, and ink too. Then simply stamp the images across the egg.  It’s that simple!  Now if you don’t have the Delicate Details stamp set, there is still time to get it so pop on over to my Stampin’ Up! store at www.lynndunn.stampinup.net and grab yours before they are gone!  Sale-A-Bration ends March 31st so there is not much time left!

I also put together a short little video vignette in case you wanted to see the stamping in action and get a few more tips on how to create these cards. You could really decorate these eggs with just about any stamp set! Get creative with it! Enjoy!

Garden In Bloom

Hello Stampin’ Friends!  I hope you are planning some fun, crafty things for this weekend!  Today I want to share some pretty little cards that were actually inspired by this month’s Paper Pumpkin kit called Bunny Buddies. Now you might be wondering why that kit inspired these cards? Well the kit contained these beautiful colors and some fun bunny ears.  I actually took the bunny ears, cut off the tip, and used them to create a little flower pot!  Fun, hey?  You can accomplish the same thing but trimming down an “oval” shape so that it’s flat on the top and bottom (instead of pointy).

The idea for the color combo used on these cards came from the Playful Palette Designer Series Paper pack. Sweet Sugarplum and Peakaboo Peach work so well together!  The green leaves were stamped with Always Artichoke. You will choose a color for your card base: either a piece of Sweet Sugarplum or Peekaboo Peach cardstock.  Hint:  I used the same color cardstock for the base of my card as I did to stamp the flower image.

Cut a piece of Sweet Sugarplum for the base of the card. Cut two (2) 1 x 5-1/4 inch pieces of the Peekaboo Peach colored pattern from the Playful Palette DSP pack. Adhere them to each side of the cardfront; about 1/4 inch away from the side (so that you have some of the Sweet Sugarplum cardstock showing). Cut a 3 x 5-1/4 inch piece of Whisper White cardstock. This is the piece you will do your stamping on. Using the images from the Garden in Bloom stamp set, stamp the stem of the flower first, using Always Artichoke (or some type of green ink). Stamp the leaves. Then stamp the flower using Sweet Sugarplum ink. Cut out a medium sized oval from the same patterned paper that you used for the sides of the card, snip off the top and bottom so that it resembles a flower pot. Adhere it over the stem. Adhere the entire white piece in the center of your card front and overlapping it onto the 1 inch pieces of DSP. For the finishing touch, add a little sentiment and a few enamel dots! Enjoy!

Hey Chick

Hello Stampin’ Friends! Today I want to share a fun little project created with the “Hey Chick” Sale-a-bration stamp. This is the most popular Sale-a-bration stamp set!  Just an FYI…there are less than 2 weeks left of Sale-a-bration so be sure to take advantage of all of the amazing products and deals!

I decided to make it a little vintage style card so I hope you enjoy it! To make this card, start with a piece of Blushing Bride cardstock for the base of your card. Cut a 5-1/4 x 4 inch piece of Crumb Cake cardstock. Randomly stamp some of the images from the Timeless Texture stamp set around the outside of the Crumb Cake cardstock using Crumb Cake ink.  Stamp the bushy haired chick in the open spaces on the cardstock. Stamp the chick on a scrap piece of Very Vanilla cardstock, cut it out with one of the oval framelits and sponge it with a bit of Crumb Cake ink. Run a piece of Very Vanilla Trim across the center of the Crumb Cake cardstock and secure the entire piece to the front of the card. Cut out a scalloped oval framelit using Blushing Bride cardstock. Adhere the two ovals together and secure to the middle of the Crumb Cake cardstock. Cut a piece of Very Vanilla Trim and tie it in a knot, trim the ends and adhere to the card with a glue dot.   For the finishing touch, stamp a sentiment on a 1/2 inch piece of Blushing Bride cardstock, trim the end into a little banner and adhere it to the card as shown. Enjoy!

Designer Tee

Hello Stampin’ Friends!  Today I want to showcase a fun little bundle of products called Custom Tee and the coordinating Sale-A-Bration stamp set called Designer Tee that you can earn for FREE.  There are soooo many possibilities with this bundle! Of course my favorite sayings are the stamping related ones. I have been busy creating some fun cards, like this, for my new stampin’ team members.”When in doubt, STAMP.”  Love it! Such a great little saying!

Now I used all of the 2016-2018 In Colors on this card but you can choose any color combo you like!  To make this card, start with a piece of Peekaboo Peach for the base of the card. Cut a 5-1/4 x 4 inch piece of Whisper White cardstock. Randomly stamp the phrase “When in Doubt Stamp” all over the background of the card. Alternate ink colors for a fun look! Stamp a few flower images in the background as well. Sponge a bit of Peekaboo Peach in the center of the card as this helps soften the background a bit. Adhere a metallic doily to the right side of the card as shown. Cut or punch out a circle shape from Peekaboo Peach cardstock and adhere it to the center of the doily. On a scrap piece of white cardstock, stamp the tee shirt, decorate it up and cut it out with the coordinating framelit. Adhere it to the center of the circle using a few dimensionals. For the finishing touch, embellish the card with some rhinestones. Enjoy!

Love Notes

Hello Stampin’ Friends! Are you having a fun crafty week?  Today I have a fun little project that is sure to get you in the craftin’ mood! It showcases the Sealed with Love stamp set and the Love Notes framelit dies. Although Valentine’s Day has come and gone, this bundle of products is fun to use all year long!  It can be used for all sorts of love themed events like anniversaries or weddings. It can also be used to send a little love note to someone…just because.

To make this card, start with a piece of Whisper White cardstock for the base of your card. Cut a 4 x 4 inch piece of Pink Pirouette cardstock and emboss it with the Falling Hearts embossing folder. Adhere this piece to the top part of your white card front. Cut two 3/4 x 4 inch pieces of your favorite designer series paper. For this card, I used some of the Sending Love Designer Series Paper (DSP). Adhere the strips of DSP across the bottom part of the 4 x 4 embossed pink piece. Slightly overlap the pieces. Cut out two little love note envelopes using the framelit and the DSP. The framelit cuts and scores the envelopes which makes it super simple to put together. Stamp the “Love Notes” and a set of hearts on a scrap piece of white cardstock, cut them out with the coordinating framelit and tuck one in each envelope. Adhere the envelopes to the card front as shown. Glue dots work perfect for putting the envelopes together.  For the finishing touch, embellish with a few wooden hearts from the Sending Love Embellishments. Enjoy!

May Flowers

Hello Stampin’ Friends!  I have Spring on my mind and Winter in my yard.  Yep, we got a few inches of snow here in Wisconsin today. Good thing I can enjoy a bit Spring in my craft room!  Today I have a fun little card to share that showcases the May Flower framelits and the Falling Flowers stamp set. The perfect spring-time card 🙂

To make this card, start with a piece of So Saffron cardstock for the base of the card. Emboss the card front with the Petal Burst embossing folder. Cut a 3 x 4 inch piece of one of the Irresistibly Floral Specialty Designer Series Paper pattern and sponge some Pear Pizzazz ink in the center. The paper pack has a variety of floral designs that you can use to re-create this card. I happened to use some retired paper for this card 🙂  Stamp the large flower on a piece of Tangerine Tango cardstock (using Tangerine Tango ink) and cut it out with the coordinating framelit. Repeat this process for the smaller flowers using So Saffron and for the leaves use Pear Pizzazz. Cut everything out and arrange it on your card front as shown.

Inside the Lines DSP

Hello Stampin Friends! Can you believe it is the last month of Stampin’ Up’s Sale-A-Bration?  Wow, time flies when you are having fun!  And this year’s Sale-A-Bration products have been a lot of fun!  So much fun that they are flying off the shelves!  They have already sold out of several items so if there is something on your wish list, you need to get it really soon!  And the Inside the Lines Designer Series Paper has now entered the “low inventory” status. Yikes!  So I thought I better share this fun little card idea with you in case you wanted to get your hands on some of this fun paper!

To make this card, start with a piece of Whisper White cardstock for the base of your card. Cut a 5-1/2 x 2 inch piece of one of your favorite patterned papers. I happen to have some fun yellow polka dot paper that worked great with this card! Cut a 1-1/2 x 4 inch piece of the Inside the Lines Designer Series Paper (the freebies Sale-A-Bration product). Color in the various images on the paper using some watercolor pencils and a blender pen. If you haven’t used a blender pen, it’s super simple. The pen comes prefilled with a solution designed to help you “blend” colors. Simply run the brush tip of the pen across the areas you colored with the watercolor pencils. It will help smooth out the lines and blend the color. Super fun! Next, cut a 1-3/4 x 4-1/4 inch piece of Old Olive cardstock; adhere the colored DSP to the old olive cardstock. Tuck a piece of a doily under the right side of the cardstock and adhere to the card as shown.  For the finishing touch, stamp a little sentiment on the card. Enjoy!
