Bird Banter for Fab Friday #131

Fab Friday #131

I knew Bird Banter would work just perfectly for the Fab Friday sketch challenge. Bird Banter is one of those stamp sets that makes you giggle. Everyone needs a laugh now and then.

Here is the sketch:

So simple, yet you can doll it up if that suits you. I chose to stay with the simple sketch but to add some details to the elements. Here is my card:

 #2108 Stampin' Up Occasions Catalog #Ginny Harrell #Bird Banter

The Berry Burst base is a standard A2 size. Cut a piece of Pool Party cardstock at 4 1/8” x 5 3/8” Adhere to the card base. Cut the DSP 2” x 4 ¾” and use the Triple Banner Punch to make the tag. Use the Layering Circe Framelits to create the Lemon Lime Twist and Berry Burst elements. Stamp the parrot and color with Blends. Fussy cut the parrot. Stamp the sentiment on a scrap of Whisper White and cut a notch on one end. Now you are ready to assemble your card. Tie a fluffy bow of Berry Burst Crinkle ribbon and adhere with a glue dot.

This crinkle ribbon is so yummy. It ties a soft and pretty bow.

 

Once you reach a “certain age” funny, sarcastic cards are the perfect choice and Bird Banter certainly is a funny stamp set. I absolutely love this stamp set!

I appreciate you stopping by today. Happy Stamping!

Love You Still for Freshly Made Sketches #324

Freshly Made Sketches #324

Participating in a challenge is a good way to get your creative juices flowing. This sketch by Narelle Farrugia at Freshly Made Sketches is so clean and simple. I struggle with simple cards because I love embellishments.

Love You Still

Love You Still has some lovely images and the sentiments are spot on for a wedding or anniversary card. I can even see these sentiments working well for a baby card. So sweet!

Spring Foil Designer Series Paper – Sale-a-bration

The Spring Foil Designer Series Paper is one of the new offerings during Sale-a-bration. This paper can be yours for free with a $50.00 purchase. It gave me the perfect inspiration for this card. Mixing gold, silver and copper is very trendy. You can mix and match the papers and ribbons for a special on-trend card.

Tips and Tricks:

Start with a Smoky Slate card base. Heat emboss the sentiment using Gold Embossing Powder on Very Vanilla cardstock. The flourishes are die cut using the Flourish Thinlits. Use wax paper when cutting detailed elements. The wax paper helps the cardstock pop right out of the thinlit. One quick swipe with the Big Shot Die Brush will get all the tiny chads out of the thinlit. Layer the Gold Foil, DSP, ribbon and focal elements to add dimension and texture. Your beautiful card is complete.

It is so good to be back creating and stamping! I sure did miss my crafty time. Holidays are always fun, but coming home is special also. Now, if the laundry fairy would visit it would be even better!

Thanks for stopping by today. Happy stamping!

Lions, Tigers & Bears, Oh My! Animal Cards

I’m participating in the Remarkable InkBig Blog Hop today. The February theme is Lions, Tigers & Bears, Oh My! Stampin’ Up! has a wide variety of animal stamps so I know you will be inspired by all the fun, cute cards. I am using Foxy Friends as my animal stamp set. 

 Foxy Friends to the Rescue

It has been awhile since I inked up the Foxy Friends stamp set, and this blog hop gave me the opportunity to show these animal critters some inky love.

 Created by Ginny Harrell using foxy Friends by Stampin' Up! Ginny Harrell @ Celebrate-the-journey.com #stampn' up! #2018 Occasions Catalog #animal cards

To create this Foxy card you will start with a Cajun Craze card base. Cut a Whisper White panel – 5 3/8” x 4 1/8”. Run the card base through your Big Shot using the Woodlands embossing folder. Cut a piece of Old Olive cardstock at 5 3/8” x 2”. Cut the cardstock in a wavy line to make the “grass” for the bottom edge of the card. Use the grass stamp from High Tide to randomly stamp on the green cardstock. Attach this piece to the white layer. Stamp your Cajun Craze fox on Whisper White cardstock, punch out the pieces using the Fox Builder Punch. Ink up the Fox sentiment using a Basic Black marker and Cajun Craze marker. Punch the circle using the 1 ¾” circle punch. Use the Layering Circle framelits to cut a Cajun Craze scallop circle. Stamp the tree trunk on a scrap of Wood Textures Designer Series Paper. Fussy cut the trunk piece. Attached the tree trunk to the card front, assemble the fox and attach him to the card front. Use a dimensional to attach the sentiment to the top righthand side of the card front. Tie the Copper Trim ribbon around the bottom of the card. Attach the card front to the card base. Your Foxy card is now complete!

 You can have a Foxy Animal Baby also!

While this set was sitting on my desk I decided to make two baby cards, just because. I love babies!

To create the background on these cards you will start with Petal Passion Designer Series Paper. Use your Sponge Brayer to color the DSP, either Flirty Flamingo or Marina Mist. Black and white paper is so easy to customize with a Sponge Brayer. Stamp the sweet raccoon with Smoky Slate and Basic Black ink, cut the circle using a Stitched Framelit and mount it on a piece of cardstock that has been cut using the Layering Circles Framelits. Add some embellishments and ribbon of your choice and assemble your card. Easy Peasy card making!

I hope these animal cards have made you smile today. Please take the time to hop on to our next stamper. You won’t want to miss all the animal projects my fellow demo friends have created.  

I appreciate you stopping by today. Happy hopping!
