Stampin' Up My Hero Birds & Blooms Card

Another gorgeous day in Michigan today.  It's supposed to rain tomorrow so it will be a good time to stay inside and engineer some paper!  =)

Today, I'll be sharing a card that I sent to my Good Friend, Stampin' Pal and Fellow Stampin' Up' Demonstrator, Kadie.  She always keeps me busy with new idea's, fun paper crafting projects and always includes me in her group.  

Here is the card that I made for Kadie:

I really went out-of-the-box designing this card!  And, I already sent it out so I don't have all the dimensions or remember exactly how I made it.

My card base is Stampin' Up Dapper Denim cut at 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" and scored and folded at 4-1/4".

I adhered two small pieces of SU's White Tea Lace Doilies as shown in the picture above.

For my card front, I think I cut 1/2" off of the top and bottom so it would measure 5" x 3-3/4".  I adhered it to the upper right hand corner using Stampin' Dimensionals.

For the layering in the center:
  I adhered maybe 3/4's of a piece of  SU's White Tea Lace Doily using Stampin' Dimensionals.
  I hand cut a piece of SU's Playful Palette Designer Series Paper Stack using the lines in the print of the paper as my guide.  Just a hand cut, free-style image.  I chose pink as that is Kadie's FAVE color.
  I die cut some Botanicals Designer Series Vellum (Retired) using SU's Layering Circles Framelits Dies.  I don't remember which size circle die it was though.  I adhered it using Mono Multi-Purpose Glue.
  I stamped the My Hero stamp from SU's new My Hero Stamp Set in Dapper Denim Ink on Whisper White Cardstock.  I punched it out using SU's new Best Badge Punch.  I adhered it using Stampin' Dimensionals.

Using SU's new Birds & Blooms Thinlits Dies, I die cut the small bird from Chocolate Chip Cardstock and adhered it behind the layers.

I cut a long piece of SU's new 5/8" Burlap Ribbon and made 3 loops which I tucked in behind the vellum and then I tied a triple bow and adhered it just above the badge.

I adhered one of SU's new Enamel Shapes in Blushing Bride in the middle my bow.

I punched out some small circle of Dapper Denim and randomly adhered them to my card front using Mono Multi-Purpose Glue.

 I adhered a Blushing Bride Star Enamel Shape to each circle.

I think it turned out to be a neat collage type card.  Lot's of fun layers!

For the inside, using SU's new Layering Circle Dies, I die cut 3 circles in Whisper White Cardstock.

I used the large splatter background stamp in SU's new Touches of Texture Stamp Set and stamped off once with Dapper Denim Ink and then stamped again without re-inking onto each circle.

And, of course, I signed it before taking a picture.

And, double of course, Boris put his paw print on it too towards the bottom.  

What a fun card this was to make.

That's all I have for today.  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 and using them for their own card classes.  My cards and projects are my own creations and are not to be used in challenges, blog hops, card classes 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!
