Nautical Birthday

I love the ocean so it isn’t a big surprise that the Setting Sail bundle one of my favorites in the new Occasions Catalog which goes live on June 4.  For today’s Nautical Birthday card, I used an Aqua Painter with Night of Navy to color in the boat and with Balmy Blue to color in my water. The dies made it quick and easy to cut out my stamped sailboat and anchor images. I used the Happy Birthday sentiment from the Balloon Celebrations set and inked on Soft Suede.

I love the simplicity of the card while incorporating so many different elements.

Bridal Shower

I come from a big family and this year, 3 of my cousins are getting married. Here is the card I made for one of my cousin’s upcoming bridal shower.

I wanted my card to have a clean look and wanted to use a lot of white while also incorporating pops of color and texture. My card has a Melon Mambo base, a layer of Flirty Flamingo and then Whisper White that I used the Tufted Dynamic Textured Embossing Folder. I stamped out the image and colored it in with Stampin Blends. I then took clear Wink of Stella and put it on the dress to give it some extra bling. I cut out the image of the bride with the Rectangle Stitched Framelits and popped it up with dimensionals. 

For the sentiment on the front, there was no “for the” stamp in the Well Said bundle so I used some masking to make it. I masked the “For You” to get it to stamp out the word “For” and then masked some of the “Father’s Day” to get the word “The”.

Sale-a-Brate Valentine’s Day

Welcome to the Pals’ February blog hop. We’re so glad you’re here because it’s “Time to Sale-A-Brate”! Our Design Team created projects using Sale-A-Bration items to inspire you. You may be starting the hop here or coming from a previous Pal’s blog. Either way, you’ve come to the right place. You’ll find the the full line-up below to help you move, or “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

Today’s card uses 3 items from Sale-A-Bration and will hopefully get you ready to Sale-A-Brate Valentine’s Day! I used the foil sheets, Botanical Butterfly Designer Series paper, and So Hoppy Together in addition to some other supplies. In life, I’m not a fan of frogs but this stamp set is just too cute! I decided to have my little frog juggle some hearts for Valentine’s Day. These hearts were cut out from the Be Mine stitched framelits from the Meant to Be bundle.


Here you can see a close up of some of the layers of the card. I popped up the top two layers with dimensionals to give my card some extra height and visual interest.

I did some masking inside the card to wish a Happy HOPPY Valentine’s Day in keeping with the adorable So Hoppy Together stamp set.

More inspiration awaits! Use the Blog Hop Line-up below to visit the rest of this month’s Design Team. My fellow Pals are excited to show you what they’ve created!
