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!)

Make a Birthday Card with Magical Day!

Birthday-card-magical-day-1

Today's project is a fun birthday card with the Magical Day stamp set from the Occasions Catalog. 

I love this set and the coordinating framelits and designer paper.  These products make a fun card for kids of all ages.   Last week, I made this box with a darling mermaid from the set.

The rich colors from the designer paper inspired the coloring of the knight with my Stampin' Blends.  I think I could color with those beauties all day long...so very relaxing.

This card is a makeover of the one seen in the video below.  I switched things up a bit since I needed to add a sentiment.  Rather than add another die cut or punched element, I decided to white emboss the sentiment directly on the card base.  It just pops on that Dapper Denim base, doesn't it?

Take a look at the video below to see the basic steps for this card.

Click here to see this birthday card video tutorial on You Tube.

Lisa's Inklings:

  • This is a great layout if you need a starting point for a card. 
  • Use the designer paper that you choose as inspiration for your ink and card stock color choices.
  • Try combining patterns as I did on both the card in the video and the makeover with Magical Day.  Notice one print is bolder than the other on each card.

Gable Box with Magical Day Mermaid

Magical-day-mermaid-box-1Today's project is this adorable gable box with the Magical Day mermaid.   Isn't is cute?

This Magical Day set bundled with the Magical Mates Framelits (clear mount-145985) is perfect for the young and young at heart!...That's all of us, right?

I decided that the Silver Mini Gable Box (145568) needed to be flipped to the "white" side for this project.  You will see how easy that is to do in today's video.  The beautiful water themed background is from the Myths & Magic Specialty Designer Series Paper (145600).  This paper is the perfect companion for this group of products.  There are dragons, mermaids, and more that can be "fussy cut" from the paper to use on cards, boxes, banners...whatever you desire to craft! 

Below is today's project video where the "magic" happens! ;)

Makeover Monday Video Tutorial- Make a Masculine Birthday Card

Masculine-birthday-card-1-8-14This week's Makeover Monday features the Pick A Pattern Designer Series Paper for a fun and bright masculine birthday card. 

I'm sure you've you heard the saying "let your fingers do the walking" in reference to the Yellow Pages in a phone directory (or, maybe that was before your time).  Today, I say "let the paper do the talking"!  If you have some bold and vibrant designer series paper, a simple sentiment and embellishments will be a good finishing touch.

Let's take a look at the inspiration for this card in the following video tutorial.

You can also find this masculine card video HERE on You Tube.

Here are the supplies used for today's card.  Shop easily by clicking on the link!  Host Code: A7H2YHVU

Product List

Lisa's Inklings:

  • Card base is cut 5 1/2" x 7" and scored at 3 1/2".
  • Designer paper in background is cut 3 1/4" x 2 1/4" and 3 1/4" x 1 1/4".
  • Designer paper pieces in foreground are cut 1 3/4" x 3 1/2" backed with card stock 2" x 3 3/4".  Other pattern designer paper is cut 2" x 4 1/2" with card stock backing 2 1/4" x 4 3/4".
  • Ribbon is cut to about 4".
  • Strip for sentiment is about 1/4" wide.

Makeover-masculine-birthday-card-2-8-14Using different, coordinating patterns on a card is a fun way to pull it all together.  Try this idea the next time you use a masculine birthday card.


Tuesday Tip- Versamark Resist Technique

Tip-technique

Today's tip is an easy and fun technique using Glossy Card Stock called the VersaMark Resist or Ghosting Technique.  Stampin' Up! re-released the Glossy Card Stock in this year's Annual Catalog after being absent for a few years.  There are quite a few techniques that you can do with this shiny, glossy paper and I hope to share more of them with you.

This technique is similar to the emboss resist technique.  It eliminates the embossing with basically the same effect.
