We got down in the low 30's last night and I was worried about the fruit tree's budding. I hope the frost didn't hurt them! The buds are about ready to pop open any day now!
Today, I'll be sharing the fourth card from Stampin' Up's Endless Birthday Wishes Stamp Set card class that Stampin' Up so generously provided us Demonstrators to teach some classes. Love this stamp set and the cards with all the bright and cheery cardstock colors and inks! It's also a great class to use up a lot of cardstock scraps!
Let's get started with my fourth card:
My card base is Stampin' Up Whisper White Cardstock cut at 5-1/2" x 4-1/4" scored and folded at 4-1/4".
I trimmed out a piece of SU Melon Mambo Designer Series Paper at 4-1/2" x 1-1/2" and punched one end using SU's Triple Banner Punch. I adhered it to my card base using Mono Multi-Purpose Glue.
I trimmed out a piece of SU Daffodil Delight Cardsock at 3" x 1/2" and adhered it over the Melon Mambo DSP using Stampin' Dimensionals.
I stamped the word Enjoy from SU's Endless Birthday Wishes Stamp Set using SU Bermuda Bay Ink.
I punched out a scalloped circle from Melon Mambo Cardstock using SU's 2-3/8" Scalloped Circle Punch. This is just something I added to the card myself and is not including in SU's class instructions.
I went around each scallop with my Signo White Gel Pen and added a small dot.
I added Stampin' Dimensionals to the back of the scallop and adhered it to my card centered over the Daffodil Delight strip.
I stamped the birthday cake on a piece of Whisper White Cardstock and water colored it with my Aqua Painter Brush using Tangerine Tango, Daffodil Delight and Bermuda Bay Inks.
Using SU's Heart Border Punch, I punched a heart from Melon Mambo Cardstock and added Crystal Effects to give them a shine. I adhered one to the center of the cake.
I tied a bow using SU's Bermuda Bay Thick Baker's Twine and adhered it to the top of the Melon Mambo DSP with a rolled up Glue Dot.
Love how these cards turned out so crisp, colorful and cute!
That's all I have for today. Come back tomorrow and I'll share the cute purse that I made to hold these cards.
Thanks for stopping by my blog!!!
I recently discovered that people are using my cards and/or projects, duplicating them and entering them into challenges. My cards and projects are my own creations and are not to be used in challenges, blog hops or sold at craft shows; etc., for profit. I don't mind if you duplicate my creativity to pass on to family members or friends as gifts or Occasions cards; but, Please be considerate of others creativity! Thank you!
