Stampin’ Up! Southern Serenade Birthday card

Stampin' Up! Southern Serenade Birthday card

I love the simplicity of this Stampin’ Up! Southern Serenade Birthday card.  Today is full of simple cardmaking tips like creating a spatter background using aqua painters and tying a loop knot from 1 piece of ribbon.  

For today I wanted to focus on a really quick and easy card with some very simple and fast coloring.  I love all the paper in the Petal Garden DSP paper stack and I found the perfect coordinating frame for the Southern Serenade focal flower!

The spatter background is a look I love and is so easy to create.  When holding the ink pad squeeze the top and the bottom together.  This puts ink in the lid.  Then use an aqua painter pen to pick up the ink and tap the painter over your paper to create the spatter look!

And here is the Stampin’ Up! Southern Serenade Birthday card video tutorial for a few fun tips:

Stampin’ Up! Apron of Love Mother’s Day Card

Stampin' Up! Apron of Love Mother's Day Card

This is my Stampin’ Up! Apron of Love Mother’s Day Card and in the video tutorial I make a more general version for all occasion!  My mom happens to love baking, so this was perfect.  However this set is so versatile!  There are scissors for crafters, BBQ tools for the Dad’s (or Mom!), flowers, etc…

There are die cuts for the pocket on the apron, but in the video I also show how I made a pocket stamping directly on the apron!  And you also have the option of stamping the tools, here I chose to use sponge daubers to make sponging easier!   I also share a simple trick in the video for tying a knot!

Start this card with an A2 white card base cut at 11″ x 4.25″, score and fold in half at 5.5″.  The berry layer is cut at 5.25″ x 4″, and the top white layer is 5″ x 3.75″.

Stampin’ Up! Celebrate you thinlit Quick & Easy card

Stampin' Up! Celebrate you thinlit Quick & Easy card

I created this Stampin’ Up! Celebrate you thinlit Quick & Easy card in both Soft Sky and Blushing Bride (as shown in the video tutorial.  I love how cute it is, while being so easy to make!  My mom’s cooking philosophy is quick, easy, tastes good…  I thought that translated rather well for cards!  Quick, easy, looks good! LOL…

Start with an A2 size cardstock cut at 11″ x 4.25″, score and fold in half at 5.5″.  The white cardstock front and the inside piece are both cut at 5.25″ x 4″.  the Stitched circle framelit is 2 3/8″.  Stamp the flourish in Lemon Lime twist and adhere the circle framelit.  Cut the “amazing” and the “you” and use a fine tip glue to adhere.  Use a glue dot to attach the Mini striped lemon lime twist ribbon knot.  Then scatter a few adhesive backed tutti frutti sequins.

Remember to make your envelope pretty!
