Hello Cupcake


Hello Friends!

My card today is a simple birthday card made from one of the FREE stamp sets from the Sale-A-Bration brochure.  It's called "Hello Cupcake".

I don't know of anyone that doesn't like cupcakes.  They come in all different colors /flavors and on paper they can be in different colors too.  However, we can't eat them, but we can admire there beauty!

This pretty little cupcake is made with Daffodil Delight Cardstock,  Gingham Gala 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper (DSP), the new Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies and the Organdy Ribbon Combo Pack which is another FREE product from the Sale-A-Bration brochure.  There is 25 yards of ribbon in the combo pack - 5 yards of each color.  The colors are Daffodil Delight; Lemon Lime Twist; Highland Heather; Balmy Blue, Calypso Coral, and they coordinate with the Gingham Gala 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper. 




The sentiment on the inside layer is from the Picture Perfect Birthday Stamp Set and was stamped with Soft Suede Classic Ink.  The little flowers were stamped with Daffodil Delight.



Here is the same card but in a different color.  This time, I used Lemon Lime Twist and if you notice I used one of the larger stitched rectangle framelits .  I actually used the 3rd framelit down from the largest  Rectangle Stitched Framelit Die, whereas on the Daffodil Delight card above, I used the 4th framelit down from the largest Rectangle Stitched Framelit, and because there was more white space between the greeting and the cupcake, I added 3 lemon lime twist adhesive backed sequins from the Gingham Gala Adhesive-Backed Sequins.

Also, did you notice the check on both the Daffodil Delight and the Lemon Lime Twist is different.  That's right it is!  On every sheet of paper in the Gingham Gala 6" x 6" DSP,  one side has the small check and  the other side is the big check.  Not only do I love the two different sizes of the check pattern, I love everything about Gingham Gala Suite.   I will be featuring more samples within the next couple of weeks using products from the Gingham Gala Suite.   Check it out on page 35 in the Occasions Catalog and on page 7 in the Sale-A-Bration Brochure. Page 6 of the Sale-A-Bration brochure is where you'll find the FREE stamp set.

Measurements:
Daffodil Delight Card Base - 4 1/4" x 11" scored at 5 1/2'
Gingham Gala Designer Series Paper - 2" x 5 1/4"
Whisper White Layer - 3 1/4" x 4 1/2" and Inside Layer 4" x 5 1/4"

I really like the Hello Cupcake Stamp Set and all the Gingham Gala coordinates.  Everyone needs birthday cards and this is one that can be made for male and/or female adults as well as for children.   Change up the colors, embellishments, greeting and/or sentiment, and you've got yourself a quick and easy birthday card.  Happy Stamping!

Amazing Life


HAPPY NEW YEAR!

I know I've been MIA for a few weeks but I'm back.

Yes, the new Occasions Catalog and the Sale-A-Bration Brochure is live and doing very well.    If you do not have them and would like them,  please send me an email at: stampwithmargo@gmail.com along with your name and address, and I will send them to you.

Todays card is from the Amazing Life Stamp Set and Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies Bundle which are from the new Occasions Catalog.  Both the Stamp Set and the Framelits Dies can also be purchased separately but you save 10% if you purchase them as a bundle.

The sentiment was stamped with Tranquil Tide Classic Ink and cut out from the 4th largest framelit from the new Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies. and adhered to the top of the card with Stampin' Dimensionals.  I also added three silver metallic pearls from the Metallic Pearl embellishment pack.

I used the Subtles Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder for the Tranquil Tide layer that was placed on top of the Soft Sea Foam card base.  The strip down the middle is from the 2017-2019  6" x 6" Designer Series Paper (DSP) pack.  



 The inside is very simple but here is where you would want to use your Stamparatus, so you can stamp the decorative chain edge in the exact place on the top and bottom of the layer.

The best way to achieve an even look, is to place the stamp where you want it to appear on the top of the layer, pick it up with the acrylic plate on the Stamparatus, ink it up and stamp the top edge.

DO NOT move the stamp.  Flip your paper around and put it in the exact same spot on the Stamparatus, so that the edge you just stamped is now at the bottom, re-ink the stamp and stamp the top edge of the paper.  By doing it this way, your decorative chain border will be in the exact place at the top and bottom of the layer without moving the stamp.  The decorative chain border and sentiment are also from the Amazing Life Stamp Set as well, and was also stamped with Tranquil Tide Classic Ink.

Measurements:
 Soft Sea Foam Card Base - 4 1/4" x 11" scored at 5 1/2" and 4" x 5 1/4" for the Inside Layer
Tranquil Tide Layer - 4" x 5 1/4"
Designer Series Paper Layer - 1 3/4" x 5 1/4"
Soft Sea Foam Layer for Sentiment - 3 1/2" x 4 3/4"

This was an easy and simple card to make and would look good in any color for any occasion. It's also a good way to use up some of your designer series paper DSP.   I like the simplicity of the card and the way it turned out.  I hope you like it enough to make one of your own.

Mediterranean Moments



Hello Friends!

Today, I have a clean and simple Mediterranean Moments card.  This little walkway reminds me of the narrow streets of Greece, Italy or France.  We certainly don't have these little quaint areas in the Northeast, but they have plenty in Europe, and I wouldn't mind walking through one even though I don't like cobblestones.  

The image is from the Mediterranean Moments Stamp Set,  and was stamped with Tuxedo Memento Black Ink, and  colored with the Stampin' Watercolor Pencils.  I know it's difficult to see in the picture, but I used Wink of Stella on all the greenery, flowers and the light in the lantern.

I then tore the whisper white layer to give it some character.  When tearing around the edges, be sure to tear towards you so you get that rough raw edge.  Although, you don't have to tear it at all, if you like all clean lines.  


It certainly is a beautiful day when you're walking through the quaint streets of a European village.  The inside sentiment and stem of flowers are from the Love What You Do Stamp Set, and was stamped with Mossy Meadow Classic Ink.

Measurements:

Mossy Meadow Card Base - 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"
So Saffron Layers for the Front and Inside - 4" x 5 1/4"
Mossy Meadow Layer - 3 1/8" x 4 3/8"
Whisper White Layer - 3 1/8" x 4 3/8"  Tear after stamping and coloring the image.

This was a fun and easy card to make and coloring can be so relaxing.  I'm really pleased with the end results , and wish I was sitting on that bench in a quaint little village somewhere in Europe.  I hope you like this card too!
