Well, how about some fun, easy and colorful birthday card ideas?

 

Balloon-bash-big-day-birthday-cards-stampin-up-patty

When I was stamping at Cindee's house last week, we found the idea on the left on Pinterest, and then "reworked" it into the idea on the right!

You can see the Video I posted here with more info on these cards!

Balloon-bash-big-day-birthday-cards-stampin-up-patty-cindee

Above: Patty's 2 cards on the top, Cindee's 2 cards on the bottom.

Our Stampin' Up! Color Palette:  Real Red, Bermuda Bay, Daffodil Delight, Crumb Cake

Big-day-birthday-card-stampin-up-patty-starburst-framelit

In the video, I explained how we used the Gorgeous Grunge "splatter dots" on the card above with the Big Day Sale a Bration birthday stamp.  I punched out the image with the 2-1/2" circle punch, then layered it onto the Starburst die cut with Daffodil Delight cardstock and the Stampin' Up! Big Shot... CUTE!, right!?

Balloon-bash-big-card-stampin-up-patty-starburst-framelit

 After making the 1st card pretty much like the one on Pinterest, we made the card above with the same colors and same design layout, but used the Balloon Bash stamp set instead!  Balloon Bash is on pg 13 of the Occasions catalog or HERE online.

The stars are die cut with the Stars framelit dies and Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper, then sponged with Bermuda Bay ink!! 

The Starburst framelit is sponged around the edge with Real Red ink to make it really POP!

Important Reminder:

The Big Day stamp set is a free item you can select with your $50 or more online order - but ONLY until March 31, 2015!  That is when Sale a Bration ENDS!

the Balloon Bash stamp set is available through June 2nd in the Occasions catalog

Berry Basket on a Card!

 

When I was stamping at Cindee's house last week, she was SO kind to give me a sweet gift and a handmade card... today I'm sharing that card with you!  She used the Berry Basket Big Shot die "flat" on the front of the card!  See her tutorial here!

Berry Basket Big Shot die found on pg 21 of the Occasions 2015 catalog or in my online store here.

Berry-basket-card-cindee-1-stampin-up-seed-packet

She used the Irresistibly Yours paper in the background of this card stamped with the Regarding Dahlias stamp set...

If you missed this technique, SEE MY VIDEO HERE.

Big-day-chalk-ink-colorbox-stampin-up-sale-a-bration-birthday-tags-cards

Above: These are the fun birthday cards you saw us making on the video.

We used lots of goodies from the 2015 Stampin' Up! Occasions catalog: the Chalkboard paper, Colorbox Chalk Ink Pads, and the Big Day Sale a Bration stamp set in our projects.  We also added Washi Tape and stenciled the backgrounds of our cards with the Stars and Hearts mask as well as the Dots and Stripes mask!

The Big Day stamp set is a free item you can select with your $50 or more online order - but ONLY until March 31, 2015!  That is when Sale a Bration ENDS!

  Big-day-chalk-ink-colorbox-stampin-up-sale-a-bration

Below: Cindee used the dots mask on her 3 cards and I used the stars mask on my cards.  We used the beautiful ColorBox Chalk inks to stencil onto our Whisper White cardstock with Sponge Daubers.. oh it is SO PRETTY in person!!

Big-day-chalkboard-paper-chalk-ink-birthday-cards-patty-cindee-colorbox

It's easy to make your tags:  Cut the Chalkboard paper (pg 25 in the Occasions catalog) into 2" wide strips, then punch them with any one of the Stampin' Up! Tag Topper punches.. we used the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch.

Big-day-chalk-ink-colorbox-stampin-up-sale-a-bration-birthday-card

We added Washi Tape from the Stacked With Love package and also some Washi from the Sweet Dreams package.

Cindee discovered that it looks really cool to sponge with the chalk ink around the edge of the tag, too!

Big On You Watercolor Background with Markers Technique

 

Cindee and I played around with a new background idea, using Watercolor Paper, Stampin' Write markers, and a spritzer with water!

Big-on-you-watercolor-background-card-stampin-up-patty-cindee

We stamped our fun watercolor cards with images from the Big On You stamp set!

137151-big-on-you-stamp-set-photopolymer

This super fun "Big On You" stamp set was the perfect greeting for these bold cards!

 

HOW TO create the Speckly Watercolor Background Technique:

How-to-watercolor-background-technique-stampin-up

The addition of the speckle stamp makes it look like the Watercolor Salt Technique (see my video here), but I didn't even use salt!

We also decorated the inside of the card with a piece of Irresistibly Yours paper and a greeting from the AWESOME Lovely Amazing You stamp set!! (see it online here)

Big-on-you-watercolor-background-card-irresistibly-yours-paper

For more info on how to sponge and use the Irresistibly Yours paper CLICK TO SEE my how to video!

Big-on-you-watercolor-background-card-lovely-amazing-you

Perfect for the inside: Lovely Amazing You stamp set (see it online here)

Big-on-you-watercolor-background-card-pretty-swell-stampin-up

 I really love this fun technique.. and especially the fun large greeting!

What colors will you use for this technique!?  As you can see, I've used my favorite color palette of Real Red, Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo, Pumpkin Pie and Crisp Cantaloupe.

 We stamped both the front and inside greetings with a Versamark ink pad and heat embossed them with Black Embossing Powder.

Lovely Amazing You Heart Card

 

Last month when I was stamping with Cindee, we decided to use this Stampin' Up! card idea from Pinterest to create our own version of this Lovely Amazing You card.

Lovely-amazing-you-irresistibly-yours-happy-heart-card-patty-pinterest

As you can see, we changed it up a bit, but used the basic idea.

Lovely-amazing-you-irresistibly-yours-happy-heart-card

If you have not seen the Lovely Amazing You stamp set, you can check it out under the New Releases HERE in my online store.

I love how we sponged the Irresistibly Yours striped paper with Coastal Cabana, Bermuda Bay and Island Indigo.. do you love the ombre look?

Lovely-amazing-you-irresistibly-yours-sponged-color-combo

If you have not used this amazing Irresistibly Yours paper (FREE during Sale a Bration 2015 with your $50 order) WATCH THIS VIDEO for instructions.

Lovely-amazing-you-irresistibly-yours-happy-heart-punch-card

To compliment the glossy stripes, we heat embossed the "you make my heart happy" sentiment with Silver Embossing Powder! CUTE!

I also sponged a piece of the polkadot Irresistibly yours paper, then punched out a heart with the Sweetheart Punch and also used a piece on the inside of the card:

Lovely-amazing-you-irresistibly-yours-happy-heart-punch-card-inside

Lovely-amazing-you-irresistibly-yours-happy-heart-card-patty-cindee

The card on the left is Cindee's version and the card on the right is mine.

Thanks Cindee for another super fun stamp day!

So you might be asking.. where did we get the Bermuda Bay twine!? Check out Cindee's BRILLIANT idea!!

Balloon Bash Birthday Card

 Wow-splash-birthday-bash-pattystamps

I know I've told you before how much fun it is to stamp with Cindee... and yep, we had another play day!!  We made several cards and this one was super fun!  I saw the idea online but there was no watermark so I don't know who originated this idea, but we thank you whoever you are!  We stamped the Balloon Bash "just for you" stamp "on the reverse side" of the photopolymer on our Whisper White Cardstock with Pool Party ink first, then turned it over and stamped the actual image with Memento Black ink. If that totally doesn't make sense,  SEE THIS VIDEO for more info on "stamping the reverse side" of your stamps (same technique shown at the end of the video with the tree image stamped on the wrong side).

So after stamping the "wrong side" and then stamping the right side, then we inked the stamp with Pumpkin Pie ink and stamped it on a scrap, and cut out the "just for you" banner, and added it to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals.

Cindee said... we must decorate the inside of our card... well of course! :)

Such a GREAT suggestion Cindee!  We used the balloon stamps in the same Balloon Bash birthday stamp set and added a piece of the Birthday Bash DSP too! Ink colors:  Pumpkin Pie, Crushed Curry and Bermuda Bay.

So after Cindee's great suggestion, I had an idea... and we added the In Color Sequins to the front of the card...  ya.. don't tell anyone I'm a clutz with the liquid glue..

I love the starry background.. I made that with Bermuda Bay ink, a sponge dauber and the Irresistibly Yours paper (a free selection with your order during Sale a Bration).

I stamped the SHINE greeting on a die cut Shape from the Apothecary Accents framelits using my Big Shot.  I stamped the stars around the greeting and adhered it to my card with my Snail adhesive.  The stars are from the "You Brighten My Day" stamp set, it's on pg 11 of the Sale a Bration catalog.  Do you know all about Sale a Bration?   FREE STUFF sums up Sale a Bration! :) You can also color the epoxy stickers like I did with the Bermuda Bay Blendabilities marker! (the small stars were colored).
