Hand Stamped Birthday Card

Happy Birthday Gorgeous Stampin' Up!
Hello Friends,

Sometimes I like to go back to basics and simply make a hand stamped birthday card without all the fuss.  Today's card was made with the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set and 4 of the 5 retiring Stampin' Up! In Colors?  Can you name the colors?  Which color will you miss the most?

I'll be sad to see the 2017-2019 Stampin' Up! In Colors leave, but it's always so much fun to see the new set of colors too.  I get a charge out of trying to guess what the new colors will be.  I'll store through department stores trying to pick the trendiest colors.

Happy Birthday Gorgeous Stampin' Up!

 To make today's card, I simply stamped my card front, then embossed it with the Tufted Embossing Folder.  I then stamped Hip Hip Hooray and punched it out with my Classic Label Punch and popped it up with dimensionals.

Stampin' Up! Retirement List to be Announced April 15, 2019. 

Shop Early for the best selection.

Are you poised to jump on the Stampin' Up! Retirement List?  Some things will sell out very quickly once the Retirement List is announced on April 15, 2019.  We already know some of the products that will land on the list.  All of the 2017-2019 In Colors will be sayings their good-byes, including Tranquil Tide.  Any designer paper that includes retiring colors will also get the boot.  That means that the Tranquil Textures Designer Series Paper is a goner because it contains Tranquil Tide. 

What are your plans for the day?  Do you have a slot of time to make a hand stamped card to brighten someone's day?

 

Have a fabulous day,

Just a Note from Jemima

Fable Friends Stampin' Up!

Hello Friends,

Here's a super simple spring card.  It starts with the Fable Friends Stamp set.  She reminds me of Jemima Puddle-Duck by Beatrix Potter.  I colored her with my Stampin' Blends.  Her cape was colored with Flirty Flamingo.  Her feet and bill were colored with Mango Melody.  Her hat was color with Mint Macaron.  I highlighted her feathers with Light Smoky Slate and blended with my color lifter.  And finally,  I made a little puddle with my Light Pool Party Stampin' Blend.

I cut around her with a stitched Oval die from the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies.

Next, I stamped Just a Note with a stamp from the Better Together stamp set and Mint Macaron Ink.  

And finally, I embossed the Just a note panel with the Pinewood Dynamic Impressions Embossing fold and put it all together on a Whisper White Note Card.

Learn How to Make a Card in 4 Simple Steps

Step One is to fold your card on the score line.  Let me let you in on a little secret.  The easiest way to make a card is to start with Note Cards & Envelopes. They're ready for you to make and send a card.  Each package contains 20 cards and envelopes already cut and scored.

Step Two is cutting and it is actually an optional step.  You only need to do this step if you color your horse.  The color from the Stampin' Blends will bleed through and show on the inside.  To cover it up cut a 4-3/4 x 3-1/4 piece of card stock for the left inside to cover the bleed through.  This card stock can be a coordinating color or just Whisper White.

Step 3 is stamping all your images using Tuxedo Black Momento Ink Stamp and the Let It Ride Stamp set.  Stamp your horse and "Go for it" on the front of your card.  Stamp the trees on your coordinating inside card stock and stamp "Take life by the reins" on the inside right.  Your can also stamp the head of your horse on the envelope if you want to  be extra fancy.

Step 4 is coloring.  Color random splashes of Soft Suede onto your horse using a Soft Suede Stampin' Blend.  Then, trace the grass using the nub end of your Old Olive Stampin' Blend.  Color the hooves using the using the nub end of a Basic Black Stampin' Blend.
