By Debbie Mageed, Any Occasion, Designer Tee, Balloon Adventures, Birthday, Festive Birthday, Stampin Up

The best part of Sale-A-Bration is getting fun products for FREE, don’t you think?? I challenge myself to try to get one of each of the stamp sets and then stock up on the consumables, like DSP, ribbons and my personal favorite this year – the card tin! All Occasion is truly a wonderful stamp set for every occasion and Designer Tee has such adorable sentiments. The challenge over at SUO Challenges is to break out those new SAB stamps and products, so I thought I would play along. The designers’ cards are great so please go pay them a visit!

  • After choosing my stamp sets, I then chose the Tempting Turquoise patterned paper from Festive Birthday DSP. To contrast this beautiful color, I layered it onto Watermelon Wonder, an in-color that will be retiring this year! I will be very sad to see this one go but it will be in my craft room for a long time. It’s a great color for me because it’s an in between color – not red, or pink. Love it!!
  • I then stamped the banner onto Whisper White, and cropped it with one of the large stitched square framelits. Once it was cut, the squared focal piece was layered onto another Watermelon Wonder square.
  • The balloons were stamped from Balloon Adventures stamp set and punched out with the Balloon Bouquet Punch. The adorable squiggle from Cupcake Cutouts Thinlits was cut out from a scrap of Silver Foil, cut and adhered to the balloons.
  • I would love for someone to name the wonderful “ribbon” from Swirly Scribbles Thinlits! This “wavy ribbon” was cut out of Silver Foil as well and adhered to the card, then the balloons were adhered with one being popped up with dimensionals.
  • The sentiment from Designer Tee was stamped twice, once in Tempting Turquoise and then in Watermelon Wonder. The WW cake was fussy cut and glued down to the TT, then it was cut out with the Stitched Circle Framelit. A scrap of Tempting Turquoise was cut with the scalloped circle, but I decided it didn’t pop enough. So, I cut a larger circle in Watermelon Wonder and adhered it to the silver banner.
  • The Finishing Touch was the Silver Enamel Shapes added to the Happy Birthday banner.

It’s the Vintage Vogue Time of Year with Stampin’ Up!

By Debbie Mageed, Time of Year, Vintage Vogue, Vintage Verses, Birthday, Thinking of You, Stampin Up

 

We are off to a great start with brand new challenges over at Retro Rubber! We are ready for a new theme challenge to make a birthday card, which card makers are always needing throughout the year. Who’s next on your birthday list? Well, make them a card they will love and I am sure we will, too! I went through my retired stamp sets and found Vintage Vogue, which is certainly one of the very first that I bought after starting to make cards. This stamp set was in the 2010 Occasions Mini Catalog. Vintage Verses was used on the inside of the card and was a free Sale-A-Bration stamp set in 2013. The sentiment is from Time of Year, which is one of the 2016-2017 Hostess sets in our current SU catalog.

 

It’s All in the Details

  • The Vintage Vogue stamp set was one of the very first that I bought for making cards, because I thought it would be pretty on my daughter’s scrapbooks as well. I loved the vintage style and thought the flowers were so pretty!
  • I chose my favorite DSP in the current catalog, Blooms & Bliss and used a pattern that has a beautiful color combination, Island Indigo and Mint Macaron. The DSP was layered onto Mint Macaron.
  • Whisper White cardstock was cut, then stamped with Mint Macaron ink to make a background. I cut it down with a stitched rectangle framelit, then adhered to the DSP layer. Mint Macaron Dotted Lace Trim was cut and adhered onto the layers before adhering to Island Indigo card base.
  • I stamped the “Thinking of You” sentiment with Island Indigo ink and the “on your” sentiment with Mint Macaron. They were cut with a Layering Oval Framelit and adhered onto the card layers. The “Birthday” stamp was inked in Island Indigo onto Mint Macaron from my scrap pile and cut out with Bunch of Banners Framelit, then popped up with dimensionals.
  • The flowers were stamped in Mint Macaron and a dauber was used to ink up the edges and the middle of each flower with Island Indigo, then fussy cut. Two were adhered directly to the card and one of the small ones was popped up on a dimensional.
  • The finishing touch was placing Island Indigo Enamel Shapes onto the flowers and Mint Macaron Enamel Shapes onto the banner.
  • Inside: The stamp from Vintage Verses was stamped in Island Indigo and the stamps from Vintage Vogue were inked with Mint Macaron and stamped onto the top and bottom of the Whisper White layer.
