No Bones About It Dinosaur Birthday Card

Hey everyone! I’m just popping in for a quick post today. I’ve been a little under the weather so this’ll be pretty brief. I have a fun dinosaur birthday card to share with you featuring the No Bones About It Stamp Set and Bubbles & Fizz Designer Series Paper.



When I began creating with this set today, I instantly knew I wanted to try making a dino with Lemon Lime Twist Ink. It seemed like the perfect reptilian color. I also knew I wanted to use the adorable star patterned paper from the free paper choice in the Sale-a-Bration Catalog. It was the perfect combo for a special little boy’s birthday card.



I had a lot of fun layering this card up; it’s my favorite way to create, partially because I love the look and partially because I just can’t seem to stop adding things. I used some of the Ombré Lemon Lime Twist Ribbon and I punched some Vellum Cardstock using the Starburst Punch. Then I punched out some cardstock using the Best Badge Punch and then ran it through my Bigshot with the Layered Leaves Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. I took my Sponge Dauber and inked on a mixture of Lemon Lime Twist Ink and Emerald Envy Ink onto my embossed badge that I had punched out. To finish off my card, I added a little party hat to the top of my dino’s head and a few Subtles Enamel Shapes. Thanks so much for stopping by and I’ll see you next post!

Cake Soirée Birthday Card Set

Hey peaches and welcome to today’s blog post. Today I’m sharing a card set that features products from the Sweet Soirée Suite of products. This suite is perfectly suited for celebrating just about any occasion. There is gorgeous coordinating Designer Series Paper (DSP), decorative masks designed to help you create and decorate your cakes with Shimmery White Embossing Paste that looks like frosting. There is a festive Scattered Sequins Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder that creates perfectly detailed sequins for your project. There’s even Sweet Soirée Ready Shreddie that adds just the right touch to your gift packaging. Everything about this suite screams “party” and it was perfect for my set of cards today.



In the Cake Soirée Bundle (which I am using in today’s card set), there are sentiments for birthdays, weddings, and anniversaries. I love the “celebrate” sentiment in this set because you can use it for a number of celebrations as well and the font is so beautiful. I have used it to stamp my beautiful cake in Berry Burst Ink as well as the sentiment on my white card. To color the detail on my cake, I  used my Watercolor Pencils and Wink of Stella Pen for a little glimmer. You’ll notice that I used the sequin embossing folder to create backgrounds for two of my cards. I have also used a few pieces of the Sweet Soirée Specialty DSP. This paper has some really stunning designs filled with fabulous florals and silver embossed details.



In two of the cards, I have used some of the dies from the bundle to add a few flourishes and to cut out some of the flowers that I stamped. I stamped and heat embossed a few flowers in Silver Embossing Powder and added them to my Soft Sky card.



You may have noticed the lovely die cut sentiment “celebrate” on two of my cards. This was created using the Celebrate You Thinlit Dies that are part of the free items from Sale-a-Bration that you can get with a qualifying order (more details below). To finish of my trip of cards, I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels, Silver Metallic Thread, Metallic Sequin Assortment, Silver Mini Sequin Trim. I hope you like my card set today. Thanks so much for stopping by and I’ll see you next post!

Cool Treats Mini Lunch Box Notes

You all know by now (if you have been following me for a while now) how much I love making mini lunchbox note cards for my daughter’s lunch. Sometimes I just recreate a card I have already made on a smaller scale if I just love the layout, and sometimes I just come up with something new entirely. The later was the case for today’s projects. I was looking and the Cool Tteats Stamp Set and was thinking how warm it’s been here in California. Well, it’s certainly been warm enough for some delicious cool treats and my daughter probably wouldn’t turn them down in a snowstorm either, so in any case, she would love the cards. So I got started on making a trip of mini cards inspired by the stamp set.



I began with a Thick Whisper White Cardstock base for each of them, cut at 3” x 3”. The next layer was cut from regular Whisper White Cardstock at 2 3/4” x 2 3/4”. Then I took the Cool Treats Stamp Set and coordinating dies, the Frozen Treats Framelits Dies and stamped and cut out a few ice creams and popsicles. I stamped one ice cream cone in Lemon Lime Twist Ink and one in Bermuda Bay Ink. Then for the popsicle I wanted an ombré look, so I inked up my stamp, first in Lemon Lime Twist, then used my Sponge Dauber in Bermuda Bay to ink up the bottom half of my popsicle.



After I cut those out, I stamped some backgrounds for each of the mini cards using the Tabs For Everything Stamp Set, Picture Perfect Birthday Stamp Set, and of course the sprinkles from the Cool Treats Set in the sane coordinating colors. I added a few pieces of Berry Burst Cardstock here and there for a pop of color and used some of the Bubbles & Fizz Designer Series Paper (DSP) as it matched so perfectly with these cards. I added sentiments from the Tabs For Everything Stamp Set onto each of the cards. Finally, to finish them off, I added a few embellishments to each. I used Silver Mini Sequin Trim on one, Silver Metallic Thread and Metallic Sequin Assortment on another, and for the last card I used a few of the Iridescent Sequin Assortment. I hope you like these adorably sweet little cards! Thanks so much for stopping by and I’ll see you next post!
