Celebrate You

Boy, does time fly when you're having fun!  I've been up to my eyeballs in prepping for my Stampin' Up! parties, making samples for a swap I'm participating in, and having lots of fun with my girlfriends.  Even though I've been creating, I haven't had much time to share.  Tisk tisk.

Anyway, I am super excited to finally share this beautiful Celebrate You Card with you!  I came up with this creation while I was making samples for my party last week, and it ended up on the cutting room floor.  

The only reason why it didn't make the cut is because the second card I made also had a Cucumber Crush card base, and we couldn't have two cards with the same base color.  Why, that would have been a travesty, right?

For this card I used the marvelous Birthday Blossoms Stamp Set.  This stamp set is timeless and classic.  And I just love that it coordinates with the Pansy Punch, so you can make an impact with punched flowers on your project.

When designing this card, my intention was to use that "cluster of flowers" stamp as my background, so I stamped it three times in the upper left, lower left and lower right corners in Cucumber Crush for a fun tone on tone look.  I love it!

Using the second largest die in the Lots of Labels Framelits Dies, I die cut a piece of Whisper White Cardstock for the sentiment.  On the white die cut piece, I stamped the leaves three times in Cucumber Crush and the sentiment in Memento Tuxedo Black.  

Using the largest die in the Lots of Labels Framelits Dies, I die cut a piece of Watermelon Wonder Cardstock to layer the sentiment piece onto.  

I stamped two flowers in Watermelon Wonder and colored the flower centers with a Daffodil Delight Stampin' Marker onto Whisper White Cardstock and punched them out using the Pansy Punch.  

I placed Stampin' Dimensionals behind the punched flowers and finished the card off with two Rhinestone Basic Jewels in the lower right corner of the sentiment piece.

I LOVE how this card turned out, and I can't wait to play with the Birthday Blossoms Stamp Set again and soon!  What do you think?  I'd love to hear from you, so please leave me a comment below.

I love the yellow card! What colors did you use on it? So pretty. I just got my stamp set today! Now I know what I am going to be doing with it!!


Hi Samistic Cards! The yellow card was card created by a Stampin' Up! concept artist. It's found in the Annual Catalog on page. 8. For the card you are referring to, I am guessing they used either Daffodil Delight or Crushed Curry for the card base. I hope this helps? Have fun stamping!
