Happy Birthday Cupcake

Stampin' Up! Birthday Wishes For You with Party Hat Birthday, Picture Perfect Birthday paper, and Sale-A-Bration Shimmer Ribbon and Stampin' Blends - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts

Hey! Thanks for stopping by my blog today! I have a fun birthday card for you using new Occasions catalog and Sale-A-Bration goodies. The big Happy Birthday stamp is awesome! That’s from Birthday Wishes for You, and I love it because you have to do very little else to complete your card. I colored my stamped image with the Bermuda Bay and Pool Party Blends (light and dark of both). The tiny cupcake uses the Party Hat Birthday bundle, and I colored that with Bermuda Bay Light and both Pool Party Blends.

That gorgeous confetti looks so life-like, but that is paper! It’s from the Picture Perfect Party paper stack. Heart eyes emoji, y’all. Love this paper. The ribbon is FREE Sale-A-Bration ribbon. It’s 1/8″ Bermuda Bay Shimmer Ribbon and comes in a combo pack with 3/8″ Calypso Coral Shimmer Ribbon and 1/4″ Basic Gray Shimmer Ribbon. You get five yards of each color. You can’t buy this ribbon, you can only earn it with a $50 (pre-tax and -shipping) order.

Happy Mother’s Day

Stampin' Up!'s Oh So Succulent suite is RETIRING! This handmade Mother's Day card also features the COMING SOON Gold Faceted Gems - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts - SIP Challenge

Good morning! I decided to participate in a sketch challenge this week over at Stamp, Ink, Paper, and I knew right away what I wanted to use. The Oh, So Succulent bundle is RETIRING (I’m still in shock after almost 2 weeks), and I just got it! In fact, I knew it was retiring before I even opened my shipment, which arrived while I was at OnStage. I think everyone was surprised by this one.

I loved this sketch!

My card starts with a Calypso Coral base, 4.25″x11″, scored at 5.5″. I used the Succulent Garden designer series paper for a mat, then added the slanted piece from the same paper pack, bordered by Smoky Slate cardstock. If you want this DSP, get it now! It will sell out soon. I wasn’t remotely interested in this paper, and then I got it free during Sale-A-Bration. I’m so glad I did — it is GORGEOUS in person.

This is my very favorite part of the card. I cut 3 different sizes of flowers using the dies. On the largest flower, I stamped the little decoration in Versamark and embossed it with Gold embossing powder and my Heat Tool. For the other two flowers, I sponged the tips of each flower with Whisper White Craft ink. As you will see in my last photo, be careful with this ink until it dries — I smudged mine, of course!

I put dimensionals in the center of each flower between the layers, then added a Gold Faceted Gem (coming June 1 for customers!) to the center of the top flower. I LOVE these as flower centers.

I added Gold Thread behind the flower and tacked it down to the card with just the Dimensional on the back of the succulent. I added some Liquid Glue to the back of the Dimensional and thread, just to make sure it all stayed on the card.

I stamped the sentiment from the Oh So Succulent stamp set on Whisper White, then flagged the end with the Triple Banner Punch and glued it down.

I have both a mother and a mother-in-law, so I made two. :)

Thanks for stopping by today! You can buy all the items to make this card (the retiring products are while supplies last) in my online store. Links are below. NOTE: If you want the Oh So Succulent bundle, I recommend buying the stamps and dies separately. The bundle is $48.50, but individually they’re deeply discounted right now, so if you buy them separately, they are only $32.25 altogether. I can’t believe how amazing this deal is. The whole bundle for the less than the original price of the dies. You’re basically getting the stamps for free! Also, the paper is 40% off right now.

Falling for this stamp set

Hello, and welcome to the International Blog Highlights featuring only current Stampin’ Up! products! We are being highlighted by the lovely Kylie Bertucci, and you can VOTE for my project! The top ten winners will get to be part of an international blog hop, so please do vote for my card.Stampin' Up! Falling For You stamps and Flourish Thinlits - clean and simple - CAS - handmade wedding card - Kylie Bertucci's International Blog Highlights - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts

Our theme for this highlight is Weddings. This is perfect timing, since June starts the big wedding season here in America. I decided to make a white-on-white clean-and-simple card. The little designs all over the card are cut using the Flourish Thinlits. I just got this set in this week and couldn’t wait to use it! I love how when you add die cuts that are the same color as the card base, it looks like you embossed one section of your card.

I had planned to heat emboss the sentiment in silver, but when it came time to stamp it, I suddenly wanted Night of Navy instead. The sentiment is from the Falling For You stamp set, which is sadly retiring. It’s only guaranteed until May 22, and after that it will be *while supplies last*, so if you want this beautiful set, make sure to order it soon! And then, of course, I needed a spray of rhinestones. Everything is better with a spray of rhinestones.

Thanks for stopping by today. Please head over to Kylie’s blog to VOTE for my card and see the other cards in the blog highlights. I’d love to take part in the next International Blog Hop!
