Spectacular Cupcakes

Hello! Welcome to Kylie’s Demonstrator Training Blog Hop! We’re a group of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators around the world sharing what we love with you. We are all in Kylie Bertucci’s training group and having a wonderful time growing our Stampin’ Up! businesses. I’m Sarah Fleming from the United States.

Stampin' Up! Birthday Cheer bundle with Detailed Birthday Edgelits dies and Foliage Frames framelits - handmade birthday or celebration card - cupcakes and confetti - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts

For my card, I’m using my favorite bundle from the Occasions catalog, the Birthday Cheer bundle. It’s fantastic, and I’ve only just started to play with it. I started with a Whisper White card base, 4-1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5-1/2″. Next, I cut a 4-1/4″ x 2-1/2″ piece of Bermuda Bay cardstock, then attached it to part of a Multipurpose Adhesive Sheet, then die cut it with the fun cupcake edgelits die. I peeled the release paper off and stuck the cupcakes down to the card base, then trimmed off the excess from the bottom of the card base.

Under where the sentiment would go, I stamped confetti on the card base in Gorgeous Grape and Lovely Lipstick.

For the sentiment (FABULOUS stamp, in my opinion), I sponged Gorgeous Grape, Lovely Lipstick, and Bermuda Bay in stripes onto the stamp, huffed on the stamp (to reactivate any dry ink after sponging), and stamped on Whisper White cardstock. I cut the sentiment out with a Foliage Frames framelits die. Before adding that to the card with Dimensionals, I stuck down a 1/2″ scrap of Bermuda Bay cardstock.

I finished off the card with Glitter Enamel Dots (of course you are surprised).

Clover Can’t Express

Good morning! I hope you’re having a great week so far. Things are good here. We’re cleaning a lot, and my big kids cleaned their whole room all by themselves this week. W00t! Poor kids don’t realize that now that I know they CAN do it…

Stampin' Up! handmade thank you for your kindness card with heat embossing using Dear Doily bundle with Doily Builder thinlits dies - Stamp Ink Paper Challenge - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts

Anyway, today is Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge Day! This week our theme is a color challenge — Black, White, and any other color. I love black & white challenges because they really highlight that one extra color and let it be the star of the show. I chose Call Me Clover for my third color. Isn’t it stunning against the black cardstock?

We’d love for you to play along with the challenge this week, so please head over to the challenge blog!

My card base is Basic Black, 4-1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5-1/2″. I first heat embossed a few doilies on the card base using the Dear Doily stamp set.  Then I heat embossed the big sentiment on the card base, from the same stamp set. I stuck a piece of Call Me Clover cardstock to a Multipurpose Adhesive Sheet (about 3-1/2″ square), then cut out the detailed doily from the Doily Builder thinlits dies. I peeled off the release paper and stuck the doily sticker to the card base. I stamped the smaller sentiment on a 1/2″ strip of Whisper White cardstock in Call Me Clover, then trimmed it down and flagged one end with the Banner Triple punch. I layered that on top of a 1/2″ strip of Call Me Clover cardstock, trimmed the Call Me Clover cardstock down, and mounted the banner on the card with Dimensionals.

I finished the card off with Rhinestones and a bow. Fun!

Sweet Celebration

Hello! Thanks for stopping by my blog today. We are being highlighted by the wonderful Kylie Bertucci, and you can VOTE for my card. The top ten winners will get to be part of an international blog hop later this month, so please do go vote for me. I’d love to be in the top 10 blog hop again next month!

Stampin' Up! Sweetest Thing bundle with Jar of Sweets framelits, How Sweet It Is paper, Rectangle Stitched framelits - easy coloring with Stampin' Blends alcohol markers - handmade encouragement birthday hello friend card - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts

This month’s theme is Encouragement, so I made this card knowing it can be used for a number of encouraging occasions, anything that comes with a celebration. New baby, retirement, new house, a new adventure… I used the new How Sweet It Is suite from the Occasions catalog to make my card.

I started with a Granny Apple Green card base, 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, scored at 4-1/4″. I cut out the Pineapple Punch cardstock with one of the Rectangle Stitched framelits (I’m sorry, I forgot to measure which one — it’s a medium-sized one?). Then I stamped little candies all over it in Pineapple Punch ink. The Sweetest Thing stamp set is so adorable! I glued the Pineapple Punch piece down to the card base, then cut a piece of 2-1/2″ x 3-1/2″ How Sweet It Is paper. This is my very favorite paper in the new catalog! I glued that down, then got to work on the jar of candy.

I stamped the jar in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored it with Stampin’ Blends. I colored the top and bottom of the jar with Light and Dark Bermuda Bay Blends, alternating the Light and Dark rather than blending them. Then I colored in the candies with Pineapple Punch Dark, Highland Heather Light and Dark, and Granny Green Light and Dark Blends. I colored the see-through part of the jar with Light and Dark Pool Party Blends, careful not to color over the candies. I die cut the jar with the matching die, and before I added it to the card with Dimensionals, I slipped in some 1/2″-inch strips of Whisper White and Melon Mambo cardstock behind where the jar was going. I stamped the sentiment in Gorgeous Grape on a 1/2″-inch strip of Whisper White, then trimmed it down and added it to the card with Dimensionals. I finished off the card with Glitter Enamel Dots. I think it’s safe to say these are my official favorite embellishments.

Thanks for visiting my blog today; I hope you like my card and that it brightened up your day! Make sure you head over to Kylie’s blog to vote for my card and check out the other amazing projects in the gallery. I would love to be chosen to do the next international blog hop!
