Sale-a-bration Sneek Peek

I needed to make a baby card and thought of the Sale-a-bration Ice Cream Parlor DSP. The DSP also comes with a coordinating Accents Pack-it's great! Especially since we don't know if it's a boy or a girl, I think this paper works great for this card! I also used this week's FTL layout at Clean and Simple Stamping here.
The card stock base is Daffodil Delight and I added some Old Olive before adding the striped DSP from Ice Cream Parlor. The dotted and scallop print is also from the Ice Cream Parlor DSP. I stamped the turtle from Fox and Friends in Old Olive and punched it out with the 1 3/8 inch Circle punch. I used my Circles #2 Bigz die to cut out the Old Olive circle behind the Whisper White one. Those were then popped up with Stampin dimensionals. Welcome baby from Short and Sweet was stamped in Old Olive then punched out with the Word Window punch. A piece of Peach Parfait card stock was run thru the Scallop Edge border punch and I added some dots with my White gel pen. Finally, I stamped the diaper pin from Short and Sweet in Peach Parfait, punched it out with the 1/2 inch Circle punch and popped it up with a Stampin dimensional.

Love Letter DSP Stationary Gift Set

This stationary gift set is a present I made for my aunt. The top picture shows the outside of the portfolio and the bottom pic is of the note cards and envelopes on the inside.


This is super easy to make. Just take an 8 1/2 by 11 piece of card stock and score and fold in half at 5 1/2. Then score the other end at 2 inches, fold up and adhere the side flaps only with Sticky Strip.

The note cards are just 8 1/2 by 11 pieces of card stock cut in 4 pieces of 4 1/4 by 5 1/2 inches. And the Very Vanilla was cut to 4 by 5 1/4 inches.

I used two patterns from the Love Letter DSP on the front. I stamped the images from Artistic Etchings on Very Vanilla with Riding Hood Red and Basic Black. The Eiffel Tower was cut out and popped up with Stampin dimensionals. Amour was punched out with the 1 3/8 by 5/8 inch oval punch. That was layered onto a Basic Black piece punched with the 1 3/4 by 7/8 inch Oval punch and then onto a Riding Hood Red piece punched with the Scallop Oval punch. A piece of retired 1 1/4 inch Riding Hood Red Striped grosgrain ribbon, adhered with Sticky Strip ties nicely to close the folder.

For the note cards I stamped the "j" from Contempo Alphabet in Basic Black and Riding Hood Red on Very Vanilla. and used the 1 1/4 inch Circle punch. That was layered onto a Riding Hood Red/Basic Black piece punched with the 1 3/8 inch Circle punch and then onto a Riding Hood Red/Basic Black piece punched with the 1 3/4 inch Scallop Circle punch and popped up with Stampin dimensionals.

My card qualifies for two challenges at Splitcoast.
First, the Color Combo#298 of Chocolate Chip, Cherry Cobbler and Crumb Cake here. And second, the Sketch Challenge #308 here.

I stamped the greeting from the same set in Cherry Cobbler and punched it out with the Scallop Oval punch and popped it up with Stampin dimensionals.

Happy 16th Birthday Megan!

It's my beautiful daughter's 16th birthday today-Happy Birthday Megan! The wrapping paper was my inspiration for the colors and I used the Clean & Simple FTL#117 here to make this bright and cheery card for my bright, beautiful, funny, loving daughter! She goes for her drivers licence test on Monday so we'll see what happens then.
I used Crumb Cake for the card stock base. Then I added some Real Red and DSP from the Patterns DSP Brights stack. I colored the cupcake from Got Treats with the Melon Mambo, Pumpkin Pie and Tempting Turquoise Stampin write markers and punched that out with the XL 1 3/4 inch Circle punch. I added a Pumpkin Pie piece punched with the XL Fancy Flower punch. I colored "Sweet" from Got Treats with the Real Red Stampin write marker and 16 from a non-SU set. That was punched with the 1 1/4 inch circle punch and added to a Real Red piece punched with the 1 3/8 inch circle punch. I used the Perfect Plum and Real Red Stampin write markers to color the cupcake from On a Pedestal, punched it out with the 1 3/8 inch circle punch. That was layered onto a Perfect Plum piece punched with the 1 3/4 in XL Scallop circle punch. A strip of Tempting Turquoise was run thru the Scallop Edge border punch.

I used my Stamp-a-ma-jig for all the stamps from On a Pedestal. The base was stamped in Concord Crush, the present in Real Red and Pumpkin Pie and the top cupcake in Concord Crush and Melon Mambo. Oh, and the candle in Real Red and Pumpkin Pie. I stamped the sentiment in Melon Mambo, punched it out with the 1 1/4 inch Square punch and layered in onto a Melon Mambo piece punched with the Scallop Square punch. That whole piece was then popped up with Stampin dimensionals.I matted that with Concord Crush and added a strip of Pumpkin Pie that was run thru the Scallop Edge Border punch. I stamped the tag from Birthday Bakery in Concord Crush and added a Concord piece punched with the Large Tag punch.

I popped that all up with Stampin dimensionals. I ran a strip of Perfect Plum thru the Scallop Edge border punch and added dots to both Plum pieces with the White gel pen.
