Easy Stampin' Up! Birthday Cards

Easy-stampin-up-birthday-card-birthday-memoriesOne of my favorite retiring group of products from the Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog is this Birthday Delivery stamp set and coordinating framelits bundle and the Birthday Memories Designer Series Paper.

The base of this card is one of our colors that is leaving during the new COLOR REVAMP.  If you love "Soft Sky", be sure to get your ink refill and card stock now!

Some crafty folks see fussy cutting as tedious work but I love to do it when chatting on the phone or watching TV.  This paper is awesome with these fun and colorful animal images for birthdays especially for the young folk!   You'll see in today's video tutorial my process of putting this card together.  (Excuse my headset cord!  I'll work on controlling that in future videos!)

Let's take a look at the video...

I'll be sharing some more birthday cards with these products on my Facebook Live tomorrow evening. Be sure to tune in at 7:30 PM, Central Time.

Do You Have A Stamparatus?

Stamparatus146276GDo you have a Stamparatus?   It's a must-have tool for all stampers, the Stamparatus helps you perfectly align stamp images, stamp multiples of the same project quickly and precisely, and get complete ink coverage.

It was created by stampers for stampers, so it has all the features you want:

* Compatible with red rubber and photopolymer stamps
* 2 magnets to hold the paper in place
* Rulers on 2 sides for quick measuring
* 2 open sides so you can use larger paper
* Multiple hinges for more placement options
* 2 reversible plates for 4 sides to work with
* 1 foam mat for use with photopolymer
* 1 base with grid
* Magnet storage areas

If you have a Stamparatus, you know what an awesome tool it is for stamp placement!  If you don't have one yet...not to worry! This tool will be available in the new Stampin' Up! catalog in June.

Stampin' Up! has been awesome in providing training videos.  Here's a new one that was released last week.  The trainer gives some advice on using pressure when using the Stamparatus.

If you were not able to get a Stamparatus during the early reserve period, put it on your wish list for June 2018 when it will be available in the new Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog.

Last-Chance Products

The Stampin' Up! Last Chance (Retiring) List was announced yesterday and when you take a look at it, it will appear that our of colors are all leaving!  Not to worry!  There will be a redesign of the cases with some great improvements.  Once I have some of the new ink pads in my hands, I will be able to show you!

However, Stampin' Up! does a lot of research to stay on top of trends in color and style.  In order to keep bringing you the most current and on trend colors, the company decided it was time to give our color collections a makeover.  This makeover will usher in 16 new colors and we'll say farewell to 13 of our current colors.  Be sure to join me on Facebook for Live with Lisa, this Thursday evening, 7:30 PM, Central and I will show you a little more on the colors and the new cases. 

Remember, many items on these lists are available only WHILE SUPPLIES LAST! (If it's not a stamp set, it's WHILE SUPPLIES LAST!)  You can keep up with what IS still available by visiting my ONLINE STORE HERE.

Make A Gatefold Card with Eastern Palace Suite

Gatefold-card-belly-band-4-2aToday's project is a gatefold cardmaking video makeover featuring the Eastern Palace Suite from the Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog.  This is a beautiful set and coordinating designer paper with endless possibilties for cardmaking.  It's been quite a while since I've used this set and paper so wanted to share this one today with you.

That front panel is a bit different than what I use on most belly bands.  The band itself can vary in width according to what you like but it needs to be 11" long so you have plenty of room to wrap it around the card and lap it over to adhere it in the back.

Let's take a look at the original video, a Christmas card, below.

Click HERE to see this video tutorial on You Tube.

Lisa's Inklings:

  • The belly band for today's makeover is 2" wide by 11" long.
  • The panel on the band is 2 1/2" x 4 1/4" in Dapper Denim and 2 1/4" x 4" of Very Vanilla.
  • The flower is colored with a Watercolor Pencil and Blender Pen.
  • For gatefold base, cut cardstock to 5 1/2" x 8 1/2".  Score at 2 1/8" and  6 3/8".

Gatefold-card-bellyband-4-2bHere are the Stampin' Up! supplies used for today's project makeover:
