Make it Monday Stampin’ Up Sale-a-Bration Irresistibly Yours Note Cards

For todays Make it Monday I am breaking out the beautiful Irresistibly Yours Speciality Designer Series Paper, for me it has been the highlight of this years Sale-a-Bration promotion and as this comes to an end on the 31st March, yes just next Tuesday!! That will be the last day you can qualify for free products for every £45 you spend on Stampin’ Up products and the last time you can get your hands on the beautiful Irresistibly Yours DSP.

Now you know I love sponging colour on to this DSP so well that’s what I have done.  I have made a set of 6 3×3 notecards each with a different colour combination. Some I like and some I am not so keen on.

Each notecard is a piece of Whisper White Cardstock cut down to 6 inches x 3 inches and scored at 3 inches.  The Irresistibly Yours DSP is cut down to 2 3/4inches x 2 3/4 inches.  For my sentiments I used the Sale-a-Bration Simply Wonderful Stamp Set.

For my first three notecards I used Daffodil Delight and Tangerine Tango Classic ink and stamped the “Congrats” sentiment from the stamp set on some Whisper White cardstock with some Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, and then punched it out with the Large Scalloped Oval Punch.  Then I used Strawberry Slush and Smoky Slate Classic ink and stamped the “Thanks so very much” sentiment on to some Whisper White cardstock and cut this into a banner shape.  For the third card I used Pistachio Pudding and Crisp Cantaloupe Classic Inks and stamped the sentiment “so happy for you”  on some more Whisper White and also cut this into a banner shape.

For my other three note cards I used Blackberry Bliss and Daffodil Delight Classic Ink (this turned out lovely) and stamped the “you’re the best” sentiment and punched it out with the Word Window Punch. On my next card I used Melon Mambo and Tempting Turquoise Classic Ink and stamped the sentiment “You’re simply wonderful” and again punched this out with the word window punch. For the last card I used Baked Brown Sugar and Lost Lagoon Classic Ink and stamped the “to a great friend” sentiment and used the large scalloped oval punch again to punch it out. I adhered all my pieces of DSP on to my card fronts with snail adhesive and popped my sentiments up with Stampin Dimensionals.

Tag it Tuesday Stampin’ Up Sale-a-Bration Irresistibly Yours Thinking of You Cards

I am trying to introduce some themes to my daily posts to challenge myself to make different projects.  So today is “Tag it Tuesday” LOL.  Well we all know Stampin’ Up do amazing punches including the tag punches which I love!  However, you do not always have to use them as plain tags, albeit at Christmas this is mighty handy!  But throughout the year you may not feel the need to break out your tag punches but they can be used for so many other things!

I decided to create a couple of cards incorporating the Ornate Tag Topper Punch as an embellishment piece on my  card front.

So I took some Pistachio Pudding and So Saffron A4 Cardstock and I cut the So Saffron piece to 8 2/8inches x 5 7/8 inches and scored it at 4 1/8 inches and cut the Pistachio Pudding piece to 11 6/8 inches x 4 1/8 inches and scored this at 5 7/8 inches for my card bases.  I took some of the gorgeous Irresistibly Yours Designer Series Paper, free as part of the Sale-a-Bration promotion with every £45 you spend, see more details below, and cut two pieces to 5 5/8 inches x 3 7/8 inches and a further two pieces to 4 inches x 2 inches.  I then sponged on some Pistachio Pudding Classic Ink on to one of the larger pieces and some So Saffron Classic Ink on to the other larger piece of DSP.  Taking the two smaller pieces I sponged on Pink Pirouette Classic Ink on to one piece and some Wisteria Wonder Classic Ink on to the other piece.

Taking my Ornate Tag Topper punch I punched the two tag pieces from these smaller pieces of DSP.  To embellish the Tag I used the floral stamp image from the For The New Two Stamp Set.  I stamped this in all four colours and fussy cut this out.  I then took a small strip of Pistachio Pudding Cardstock and So Saffron Cardstock and stamped my sentiment from the Sheltering Tree Stamp Set in Memento Black Ink.  I thread some Pink Pirouette Seam Binding Ribbon through my pink tag and some Crushed Curry Ribbon through my Wisteria Wonder tag and then popped these up on some Stampin Dimensionals and adhered them to my card front.  I then adhered the stamped images and my sentiment banner.  I also took my Four Petal Flower Punch from the Itty Bitty Accent Punch Pack and punched 3 flowers from some Pistachio Pudding cardstock and some So Saffron cardstock.  I added some Basic Pearl Jewels to these and added them to my card front with some Mini Glue Dots.  I popped both card fronts onto my card bases with more Stampin Dimensionals and finished off with a few more Basic Pearl Jewels.

For the inside I just popped in some Whisper White Cardstock cut to 5 5/8 inches x 3 7/8 inches and stamped the floral images again from the For The New Two stamp set in coordinating colours.

I had no idea how these cards were going to turn out, I didn’t have a plan going into them only that I wanted to use the Ornate Tag Topper Punch!

Stampin’ Up Sale-a-Bration Irresistibly Yours Football Themed Birthday Card

For this birthday card the inspiration came from the colours.  My fellow “Pootler” Debbie Bradley at http://www.larlicrafts.wordpress.com showcased a lovely easel card she made using Melon Mambo Classic Ink and Tempting Turquoise Classic Ink.  These colours reminding of my favourite football teams colours and with my Dad’s birthday looming I got sponging!  I made two cards with similar techniques.

For the first card I took a piece of the Sale-a-Bration Irresistibly Yours Speciality Designer Series Paper measuring 5 5/8 inches x 3 7/8 inches (14.3cm x 10cm) and sponged on the Melon Mambo and Tempting Turquoise inks blending as I went.  These colours work so well together.  I then took my Little Letters Dies and cut out the letters representing my team and to finish off my piece I used the Confetti Stars Border Punch.  I adhered this to my card base of a piece of A4 Tempting Turquoise Cardstock cut at 5 7/8 inches (14.8cm) and scored at 4 1/8 inches (10.5cm).  I then took a small strip of the Tempting Turquoise cardstock and the Happy Birthday sentiment from the B.Y.O.P Stamp Set from the Spring and Summer Catalogue to make a sentiment banner, stamping in Versamrk Ink and heat embossing with Stampin Up White Embossing powder.  I finished the banner by punching out a star with the star punch from the Itty Bitty Accent punch pack and popped this onto my card front.

For my second card I blended the two colours onto some Whisper White cardstock measuring 5 7/8 inches x 4 1/8 inches (14.8cm x10.5cm) and adhered this to my card base, a piece of Whisper White A4 Cardstock cut at 5 7/8 inches (14.8cm) scored at 4 1/8 inches (10.5cm).  For my front piece I took a piece of Irresistibly Yours DSP and used the Little Letters Dies and Confetti Stars border punch to cut out my design.  For my sentiment banner I used Melon Mambo cardstock this time.  I popped these onto my card base and all its done two quick football themed cards which can be adapted with your favourite team colours!!

Stampin’ Up Sale-a-Bration Irresistibly Yours and One Tag Fits All Card Series New Baby Cards and GIVEAWAY!!

This is my 5th and last instalment of my Irresistibly Yours Speciality Designer Series Paper Card Series.  For todays cards I made two new baby cards, one for a baby girl and one for a baby boy.

For both cards I took my usual piece of the Sale-a-Bration Irresistibly Yours Speciality Designer Series Paper measuring 5 5/8 inches x 3 7/8 inches (14.3cm x 10cm) and for the baby girl card I sponged on some Strawberry Slush Classic Ink and then blended in some Blushing Bride Classic Ink and Pink Pirouette Classic Ink.  For my boy card I sponged on some Costal Cabana Classic Ink and blended in some Pool Party Classic Ink and Soft Sky Classic Ink on my Irresistibly Yours DSP.

For the card bases I used a piece of A4 Strawberry Slush A4 cardstock for my girl card and a piece of Costal Cabana A4 Cardstock cut at 5 7/8 inches (14.8cm) and scored at 4 1/8 inches (10.5cm).

I created the triple layered tag embellishment using my Note Tag Punch, and  four pieces of some Whisper White cardstock on to which I stamped the “New Baby sentiment and baby duck image” image from the One Tag Fits all Stamp Set and the tag border stamp in Blushing Bride Ink and  Pool Party Classic Ink.  I coloured my images and popped them on to the co-ordinating cardstock tag pieces and the other stamped Whisper White pieces with some Stampin Dimensionals.  I sponged the edges with some Pink Pirouette ink and Soft Sky Ink,  attached some Pink Pirouette Seam Binding Ribbon and attached it to my new baby girl tag and some Costal Cabana Ribbon from the SAB Embellishment pack for my baby boy tag and adhered them along with my pieces of Irresistibly Yours DSP to my card bases.

I finished off the card fronts with a sacattering of some sequins from the 2013-2015 In Colour Sequins.

For the inside I took a piece of Whisper White cardstock measuring 5 5/8 inches x 3 7/8 inches (14.3cm x 10cm) and stamped a sentiment from the SAB Simply Wonderful stamp set and then I stamped some accents in the 3 co-ordinating Inks from the Perpetual Calendar Stamp Set to finish off the insides.

So that is it, my first ever mini series is all done and I hope I have inspired you to try out the gorgeous Irresistibly Yours DSP and experiment with some inks.  For those of you that have not yet managed to get your hands on any or have used it all up like me I have a special giveaway to celebrate my first ever card series.  For your chance to win a pack of the SAB Best Year Ever Designer Series Paper, the SAB Simply Wonderful stamp set and yes some of the lovely Irresistibly Yours Speciality Designer Series Paper you only have to do a few simple things!!

Stampin’ Up Sale-a-Bration Irresistibly Yours and One Tag Fits All Card Series You Light Up my Life

For my 4th card in my mini series I wanted to brighten things up a bit and surprised myself actually as this combination turned out to be one of my favourites!

I took my usual piece of the Sale-a-Bration Irresistibly Yours Speciality Designer Series Paper measuring 5 5/8 inches x 3 7/8 inches (14.3cm x 10cm) and sponged on some Daffodil Delight Classic Ink in a couple of different spots and then blended in some Tangerine Tango Classic ink and I think these work really well together.

For my card base I used a piece of A4 Daffodil Delight cardstock cut at 4 1/8 inches (10.5cm) and scored at 5 7/8 inches (14.8cm ).

SAB Irresistibly Yours You Light Up My Life Card

SAB Irresistibly Yours You Light Up My Life Card

I created my layered tag embellishment using my Note Tag Punch, a piece of Daffodil Delight Cardstock and a piece of Whisper White cardstock on to which I stamped the “You Light Up My Life” image from the One Tag Fits all Stamp Set . I coloured my image and popped it on to the Daffodil Delight tag piece with some Stampin Dimensionals.  I sponged the edges with each of the ink colours and attached some Natural Linen Thread to finish my tag and adhered it along with my piece of Irresistibly Yours DSP to my card base.  I felt my card front needed something else to finish it off so I punched out three four leaf flowers with my flower punch from the Itty Bitty Accent punch pack, sponged the edges and popped some Basic Pearl Jewels in the middle and popped these up in the top corner of my card.
