All That You Are Birthday and Stampin’ Blends Tip!

Stampin' Up All That You Are Birthday - Peggy Noe - stampinup

This birthday card showcases the spectacular All That You Are Cling Stamp Set. It’s a great set for coloring with the Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Markers! And, it goes along with this week’s Global Design Project Theme of the garden path 🙂

I just love this bouquet of flowers ~ it looks like a bride’s bouquet, don’t you think? The main bouquet was stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and colored in with the Calypso Coral Stampin’ Blends Combo Pack and the Granny Apple Green Combo Pack.

I’ve added two additional flowers colored with the Lovely Lipstick Combo Pack and cut out with the coordinating Frosted Bouquet Framelits Dies. These are affixed with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Pretty Pointer:  Use the Stampin’ Blends Color Lifter to add depth to your colored images. After you have applied the color, go back in and “lift” some of the color. Here you can see that I lifted color from the petals of the largest flower. Do you see where it looks almost white in the center of some of the petals? That’s where I’ve “lifted” color!

Coloring stamped images is SO much fun! It totally relaxes me. It’s so peaceful to just think about colors…everything else is forgotten and I’m peacefully coloring…you should try it! And it’s so easy to create something beautiful with these Stampin’ Blends!

Hoppy Birthday!

Stampin' Up! So Hoppy Together - Peggy Noe - stampinup

This So Hoppy Together stamp set is too cute! And when I thought of making a fun guy birthday card my mind went right to this set 🙂

Stampin' Up! Hoppy Birthday - Peggy Noe - stampinup

It has fun whimsical characters that make me laugh and they will bring a smile to anyone who receives this card! Start by stamping your frog of choice (hee-hee!) from the set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a piece of Whisper White card stock. Use our Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Markers to color in the body. I used the Old Olive Combo Pack which includes both the light and dark shades. I stamped the little crown and then colored that in with a Light Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blend.

Isn’t this unicycle-riding guy so happy/hoppy?? For the sentiment I stamped one of the sentiment stamps from the set onto a small strip of Whisper White card stock. Then I trimmed the word “hoppy” out with my Paper Snips. I stamped the word “Birthday” using the Well Said stamp set, trimming it as with the other word. They are attached to the Whisper White panel with few dots of Multipurpose Glue.

Notice the creatures shown above in the stamp set. There is a funny set of three flies with googly eyes (!!!!) and a dragonfly, also with googly eyes 🙂 Too cute!

Butterfly Beauty Card!

Stampin' Up! Beauty Abounds Card - Peggy Noe - stampinup

This is a card we made over the weekend at my local classes and I thought you’d like to see it!

It was created using the Beauty Abounds Bundle. This is an amazing bundle! There are 20 dies in the Butterfly Beauty Thinlits that come as part of the bundle – wow! If you love butterflies, this is definitely the set for you! 🙂

The butterflies on today’s card are cut from both Highland Heather and Gorgeous Grape card stock. These two purples go so well together! The yellow I used is the soft So Saffron. A beautiful color combination!

The sentiment is from the Butterfly Gala stamp set. Do you ever find a sentiment that you just love? That’s the way I feel about “a little note.” I love the font and I love the saying because it is SO versatile! It can convey hi, or hello, or thinking of you, or so sorry or…just about anything. It’s one I will be using a lot!
