Petal Passion Suite Makes a Beautiful Birthday Card for Cardz 4 Galz

By Debbie Mageed, Petal Palette, Birthday, Stampin Up

 

I have to pinch myself because I was recently asked to join the wonderful design team for Cardz 4 Galz! I have really enjoyed playing along with their challenges recently so this is quite an honor. My very first challenge with them is “Anything BUT Square”. They assured me that a rectangle is NOT a square so I stuck with my A6ish size so as to not embarrass myself too much for my first challenge. 😉 This card uses the brand new Petal Palette stamp set, which is part of the Petal Passion suite of products. If you follow me even occasionally (and if you don’t now, I hope you will!), you will know that I have a very real passion for my feathered friends, so this was the very first item on my order for the new Stampin’ Up! catalog.

It’s All in the Details
  • Card Base: 4 1/2″ x 11″ and scored at 5 1/2″
  • The gorgeous patterned designer paper was cut and colored with Stampin’ Blends. I love this DSP because you can color – or not – to make it match whatever you wish. I chose to color just a few flowers and then the space between the flowers to look like sky.
  • The bird was stamped with Memento Black ink and colored with Pool Party Stampin’ Blends as well, then cropped with the coordinating thinlits.
  • The largest of Lots of Layers Framelit was used to cut Whisper White cardstock, then stamped with the dots stamp from Petal Palette. After that, I used the Pinewood Plank TIEF  to dry emboss the cardstock. I stamped the flowers and cropped them out. Then, the branch from Seasonal Layers was cropped with Basic Black cardstock. A small piece of Old Olive Mini Chevron ribbon was wrapped and adhered to the back. All of the elements were adhered to the framelit, then popped up with dimensionals onto the floral layer.
  • The Finishing Touch was adding the Silver Metallic Enamel Shapes.

Quick and Easy Wedding Card Using Happy Notes for Retro Rubber

By Debbie Mageed, Happy Notes, Wedding, Anniversary, Stampin Up

 

It’s our very first challenge of the year for Retro Rubber! Woohoo!! I am so happy to be back playing with my treasured “retro” stamps! I am working on getting cards made for the events I have coming up soon, so this wedding card, made with the sentiment from Happy Notes, was my first card of the year. Pairing it with a brand new die cut from Tutti Designs and the beautiful Layered Leaves dynamic embossing folder. Happy Notes first came out in the 2015-2016 Annual Catalog and retired last year. This challenge is perfect for so many types of occasions, so go see what the design team did with it as well.

It’s All in the Details
  • Whisper White Thick Cardstock, cut at 5 3/4″ x 9 1/2″ and scored at 4 3/4″.
  • Using the die cut from Tutti Designs, I cut two of the dove images. I adhered them together and curled the wings of the top wings of the doves with a bone folder.
  • The sentiment from Happy Notes was inked in VersaMark and heat embossed with Silver Embossing Powder. Then, it was cropped, using the large Stitched Shapes Oval Framelit. Brushed Silver cardstock, cut with the scalloped Oval Framelit, layers the sentiment.
  • The last detail was cutting the Whisper White cardstock, dry embossing it in the Layering Leaves dynamic embossing folder, then layering it on top of more Brushed Silver cardstock. Silver Metallic-Edge Ribbon was wrapped around the layers and adhered to the back, then the panel was adhered to the card base. The sentiment was popped up with dimensionals as well as the doves.
  • INSIDE: For the inside, I couldn’t resist using the sentiment from Ribbon of Courage (perfect for comtemplating marriage, right?) that came out in the 2017-2018 Annual Catalog, which I cut with the Gina Marie Designs’ Wine Label Die Cut and layered onto Brushed Silver cardstock.
