Wish for it All Pigment Sprinkles Birthday Card!

Hi there, hope you had a great weekend!  Yesterday was one of my friend’s birthday and she is a testimony to creating friendships through Stampin Up!  I met her a year ago, because she was looking for a Stampin Up Demonstrator and I came up in her search.  Well, I am so happy as a year later and many visits with each other despite the fact that she goes south for the winter, we have created a beautiful friendship and yesterday I celebrated her birthday with this beautiful card that reminds me of her sparkle and beauty.  Hope you like this card created with the Wish for it All bundle, a bundle that is perfect for Birthdays.

Facebook is a funny thing.  You know how those old memories pop up from the past?  Well, there was an old card of mine that reminded me of the Stylish Scroll Embossing Folder and since I just got the Golden Glitz Delicata ink, I had to create this card.

INSTRUCTIONS TO MAKE THIS CARD:

(Please scroll down for the downloadable PDF)

  1. Cut the card base, which is Coastal Cabana cardstock 5-1/2 x 8-1/2, score and fold at 4-1/4.
  2. Cut a 3-3/4 x 5 Watercolor paper, sprinkle with Melon Mambo Pigment Sprinkle and spritz it with water using the Stampin Spritzer.
  3. Once the spritzed panel is dry, run it through the Stylish Scroll Embossing folder, and sponge the raised parts using Sponge Dauber with the Delicata Golden Glitz ink.
  4. Cut a 3-7/8 x 5-1/8 Whisper White cardstock and adhere it as a mat under the watercolored panel.
  5. Ink up the cake using Coastal Cabana ink on the bottom and using a sponge dauber add Granny Apple Green to the top portion and Mango Melody to the candles and die cut it.
  6. Die cut a 3-8/7 x 2 Stitched Nested Label using Gold Glimmer Paper and also die cut a doily using Whisper White cardstock.
  7. Adhere the doily, both the inner and outer parts to the panel using liquid glue and the Stitched Nested Label using Stampin Dimensionals.
  8. Adhere the die cut cake using liquid glue on top of the cake.
  9. White emboss the sentiment onto Basic Black cardstock and die cut it using the banner die. Add Stampin Dimensionals on the back of the banner, thread through the holes the Bermuda Bay 1/4″ Mini Striped Ribbon and tie it around the hole panel in a knot as show on picture.
  10. Squeeze a little bit of Shimmery Chrstal Effects on the candlelights and sprinkle some Dazzling Diamonds on top of it.
  11. Finally adhere the whole finished panel to the card front using Tear & Tape.

Here is another look of this super fun card created with the Wish for it All bundle and Stylish Scroll Embossing folder and of course Pigment Sprinkles and Golden Glitz Delicata Ink.

Gold Sponged Embossed Magnolia Card

Hi there, hope you had a great weekend!  I have been busy creating lots of cards.  Also today and Friday I have my watercoloring class, and I am looking forward to those.  Today, however I wanted to share a quick card with you.  In our new Holiday Catalog we now carry the gorgeous metallic Delicata Ink pads.  We can choose from the Golden Glitz, the Celestial Copper and the Silvery Shimmer pads.

About a week ago Linda Dalke shared her gorgeous card with us demonstrators and I knew right away I had to recreate this beauty!  She shared a card very similar to this, so I recreated mine using the Magnollia 3D Embossing Folder on Basic Black cardstock and highlighting the raised image with the Golden Glitz Delicata ink pad.  Here is my version of it.

Isn’t this so pretty?  It’s really an emboss resist technique, but it’s just so beautiful on black.  Very elegant and so quick to make.  Could make a great wedding card with the right sentiment, any kind of a congratulatory card, once again a Christmas card with the right sentiment.  I have a video for you below and of course the downloadable PDF tutorial to take with you as well.

INSTRUCTIONS TO MAKE THIS CARD:

(Please scroll down for the downloadable PDF)

  1. Cut the card base, which is Basic Black cardstock 4-1/4 x 11, score and fold at 5-1/2.
  2. Cut a 3-3/4 x 5 Basic Black Cardstock panel and run it through the Magnolia 3D embossing folder.
  3. Dab a sponge dauber into the Golden Glitz Delicata ink pad and rub it against the raised image to make the flowers pop as shown on picture.  (you can see this on the video easily if you need more visual)
  4. Cut a 3-7/8 x 5-1/8 Petal Pink Cardstock panel and adhere it under the embossed panel and onto the card base.
  5. Die cut the band die using Gold Foil paper, adhere to the card front and snip off the access pieces on the ends.
  6. Die cut an oval using Petal Pink Cardstock, stamp the sentiment on it using Tuxedo Black Memento ink and adhere on top of the gold band using Stampin Dimensionals.

Here is another look of the card.

And if you are like me and prefer to see things done visually, I have a quick video I created just for you.
