Perennial Birthday

Perennial Birthday Stampin' Up!

Hello Friends,

Do you like stretching your crafting dollars?  Try dusting off old favorites to use in new ways.  Remember how hot the Stitched Be Mine and Stitched Labels dies were when they debuted?  We couldn't get enough of them.  The Stitched Be Mine dies were all the rage around Valentine's Day and we simply couldn't get enough of the Stitched label dies when they first made their appearance in last year's Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog.


Perennial Birthday Stampin' Up!

Today, I paired these fabulous dies with a stamp set that's been around the block a few times, the Perennial Birthday stamp set to give them all a fresh new look.


Perennial Birthday Stampin' Up!

They didn't enter the crafting world together or even at the same time, but on today's Perennial Birthday Card they look as if they were always meant to be together.

Here's a Few Card Tips

I stamped a band of whimsical images from the Perennial Birthday stamp set using Crushed Curry, Gorgeous Grape, Tuxedo Black and Sahara Sand Ink.  

Then, I colored the bigger flowers with Rococo Rose, Highland Heather, and Granny Apple Green Stampin' Blends.

To top everything off, I cut a whimsical selection of Whisper White shapes with the Stitched Be Mine and Stitched Labels dies to dance across the top of my card.  And finally, I fussy cut one little daisy just so I could pop it up.

How to Make a Bridge Card

Nana Loves You Card

Hello Friends,

A Bridge Card is a 3D Card that pops up and yet it flattens to send through the mail.  It's the best of both worlds when it comes to card making.

As soon as I saw the Grandma's House stamp set I just knew that I would have to have it.  By combining the Grandma's House stamp set with the Hand Lettered Prose dies, I was able to say, "Nana sure does love you".  And the x's and o's are hugs and kisses.

 

 

See how simple it is to make a Nana Sure Loves you Bridge Card in this video.

Magnolias & Birch Hand Stamped Sympathy Card

Handmade Sympathy Card by Robin Feicht

Hello Friends,

Have you ever received a handmade card?  Hand stamped cards bring a delightfully warm feeling that somebody cares.  After all, they took the time to make a card to send to your mailbox.  All that to say,  handmade Sympathy Cards are the way to go.  It's like sending someone a hug through the mail.

Magnolias & Birch Sympathy Card Tips 

I love the light, wispy look of today's card.  Even though there are layers of pretties, the card remains fresh and clean.  The key is to make your card elements soft and light.

I colored my magnolias with just a hint of Petal Pink.  The Magnolias are from the Good Morning Magnolia stamp set.

The heartfelt heart was cut with the Stitched Be Mine Dies and stamped with the Well Said stamp set.

The "sympathy" was cut with the Well Written dies and pretty colored vellum (Perennial Essence Vellum).

The birch background was stamped with the Birch Background stamp and Gray Granite ink.  Hint:  I used my Stamparatus to stamp my birch background.  Using the Stamparatus allows me to restamp any areas that I may have missed without having to line up my stamp once again.

I edged the birch panel with a Petal Pink stitched scalloped trim cut with the Stitched Be Mine Dies.
