Stampin' Up! Broadway Birthday Card


Broadway Bound Suite for Paper Craft and Card Making

Hey Peaches! I have a quick technique to share with you today, featuring the Broadway Birthday Bundle from the Broadway Bound Suite of Products. I know I've mentioned it before but how fun are these party-licious products?! I mean, they have such fun fonts and unique dies that create a look straight off Broadway! I love it! Here's a look at the set up close:

Broadway Birthday Photopolymer Bundle

Before I get into the technique I used on my card today, I wanted to start with how I created to base. I started with a Balmy Blue Cardstock base and used Balmy Blue Ink to stamp the small sparkle stamp in a diagonal pattern across my base. Next I cut a piece of Whisper White Cardstock and got out my Embossing Paste to prepare for the masking technique.


I wanted the area in the center to be free of embossing paste so that my elements would sit nicely inside. I also wanted that space to be in the exact shape of the marquee banner die in the set. To achieve this, I used the die to cut out a piece of scrap paper and then used the die cut piece as a mask over the area that I wanted to be free of paste. Next, I took one of he masks from the Pattern Party Decorative Masks to spread my Embossing Paste in a pattern over the entirety of the piece of white cardstock. I removed my mask and allowed it to dry, and now you have a perfectly fitted masked off area. I die cut the same banner piece out of Vellum Cardstock and placed it into the center area, along with the rest of my elements and sentiment. I finished off my card with a few sparkles cut from Pineapple Punch Cardstock and some Rhinestone Basic Jewels


And that's my card for today! I hope you have enjoyed this masking technique and look forward to seeing you next post!

Sea Of Textures - Stamp Review Crew Blog Hop

the stamp review crew

Hello Peaches! I'm here to participate in another fun blog hop with The Stamp Review Crew! If you're not familiar with The Stamp Review Crew , they are a group of very talented international Stampin' Up! demonstrators who get together on the first and third Monday of each month to bring you all kinds of delicious inspiration that features a different stamp set each new Monday. 




The blog hops are archived at The Stamp Review Crew blog and you'll be able to click through the hops at any time, going directly to the posts as you wish for any of the hops. Just click on the banner of this post to go to the master blog roll for this hop also. If you have already started the hop, you will have come from the lovely and creative Nikki Spencer.



Sea of Textures Clear-Mount Bundle

For this hop, we are featuring the Sea Of Textures Stamp Set. I was actually assigned this set to demonstrate at our Onstage event this past April in Las Vegas. It is an absolute favorite of mine. I love that it has so many gorgeous stamps and dies, full of texture, and I wanted to showcase that beautiful texture in my card today.





I began with a panel of Watercolor Paper and my Aqua Painter. I created a watercolor wash background using Bermuda Bay Ink, Soft Sea Foam Ink, and Highland Heather Ink. While that dried, I stamped my octopus in Versamark Ink onto Vellum and then heat embossed it with White Embossing Powder. After I die cut the octopus out, I flipped it over so that I could use my Bermuda Bay Stampin' Writer Marker to add a little color. I die cut a few more elements like the netting and sand dollar from Gray Granite Cardstock and Soft Sea Foam Cardstock and finished it off with a few sequins from the Iridescent Sequin Assortment


Well, that's my card for today's hop! Thanks so much for hopping along! I just wanted to mention to my regular followers that these coming weekly posts will be a little different. I am participating in multiple blog hops this month so that means extra inspiration for you! Next stop is the lovely and talented Tanya Boser! Check out her gorgeous blog and projects!

Fancy Friday Blog Hop - Tropical Vibe


Hey everyone and welcome to the Fancy Friday Blog Hop! If you’re new the the Fancy Friday Blog Hops, we are a group of past and current Artisans that get together each month on the last Friday of each month to bring you Crafty inspiration with monthly themes and challenges. I’m so honored and excited to be a part of this talented group! Now onto this month’s focus!


This month's theme is "tropical vibe", so anything tropical goes! There are so many ways to go with this theme but my first thought was to combine the Tropical Chic Bundle and the Fabulous Flamingo Stamp Set


Now for my card, I used a previous flamingo card that I had made as my inspiration. I stamped and watercolored the flamingo in a very similar way. I stamped the layers of the flamingo in Melon Mambo Ink and of course Flirty Flamingo Ink onto Watercolor Paper. Then I used my Flirty Flamingo Stampin' Write Marker to add some additional feathers for more detail. Since it was stamped on Watercolor Paper, I was able to easily blend the colors with my Aqua Painter. After that had dried, I used the same marker to flick on some splatters of ink. Then I carefully fussy cut it out. I did the same "flicking technique" for the background of my main panel.


The last steps were to stamp a few tropical leaves. I did this is Shaded Spruce Ink and Lemon Lime Twist Ink. I layered them under my flamingo and finished off my card with a few sequins from the Iridescent Sequin Assortment.


 I hope You have enjoyed my card for today and don't forget to keep hopping for more inspiration. Up next on the hop is the lovely and talented Rochelle Blok. She always blows me away with her creativity.
