Card Details

Using a Whisper White thick card base I glued Old Olive card stock cut at 3 1/4″ X 5 1/2″ and the Designer Series Paper from Coffee Break cut at 3″ X 5 1/2″

Next I cut  strips from Early Espresso card stock at 3 1/2″ X 1″ , Whisper White and Vellum both at 3/4″ X 3″ and snipped flag tail at the end of each.

After adhering the Early Espresso strip down I used the SNAIL adhesive and rippled Garden Green ribbon down.

I stamped the sentiment with Archival Black in on the Vellum and adhered it to the Whisper White strip and stuck them both down with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The Cockatoo and branch are fussy cut. I glued the branched used a Stampin’ Dimensional to pop the bird up.

All the supplies I used are listed below and available in my shop.

Birthday Delivery Sharing Sweet Thoughts Card

Posted in Let's Get Creative
on January 10, 2018

Today I am sharing another card sketch challenge I’ve entered.  The sketch is from a group called CAS(E) this Sketch! Like I’ve mentioned in previous posts, sketches help get my creative brain going.

Card Details

At first I thought I would make a Valentine’s card so I flipped through my DSP (designer series paper) to find something that would work with hearts and I happened to see the little girl from the Birthday Delivery DSP and thought, oh she would be perfect to set across the two sections of the sketch. In addition to the little girl, I still wanted to use hearts and so cut some out with the Sweet and Sassy Framelits. The polka-dot stamp pattern is from our new Heart Happiness stamp set in the 2018 Occasions Catalog.

At first I couldn’t find a sentiment I like but found one  from our exclusive Ronald McDonald House Sharing Sweet Thoughts stamp set that worked perfectly.  Stampin’ Up! donates $3 for every Sharing Sweet Thoughts stamp set sold.

Finally to bling it up a bit I added a ribbon and silver sequin to set off the two sections.

Birthday Delivery Sharing Sweet Thoughts Card - this card was made using a sketch from CASE this Sketch! www.creatingwithkristina.com

Lovely Wishes You’re the Best Card

Posted in Let's Get Creative
on January 7, 2018

Good Morning! 2018 is in full swing. This past Friday I had my first card class of the new year and it was a huge success. I had 8 ladies come.  We had so much fun making the 4 cards I had for them.  I can’t wait to start planning my February class.

But before that I want to share with you a sketch challenge I entered.

Freshly Made Sketches #318

The ladies over at Freshly Made Sketches have extended this challenge which gives me a chance enter at the last minute. As of the writing of this post there are 144 entries.  That is a lot of inspiration!  Using sketches gets my creative mind focused.   I just pull a stamp set and then see how I can use it in the sketch.

On this card I decided on the new Lovely Wishes stamp set.

Lovely Wishes Youre the Best www.creatingwithkristina.com

The Lovely Wishes stamp set by Stampin’ Up! is available in our new Spring Occasions Catalog. It is not only bold and graphic, it is also very sweet.  I paired it with a stamp set from our Annual Catalog Label Me Pretty.

Card Details

I first stamped the floral image in Black ink and then used Lemon Lime Twist with the leaf fill-in stamp and Peekaboo Peach with the flower fill-in stamps.  After stamping the sentiment I used my big shot to cut it out using the Oval Laying Framelit and adhered it to a scalloped oval cut from our Bermuda Bay card stock.

I cut a strip from our new Picture Perfect Party Designer Series Paper.  Glued a piece of Pool Party Shimmer ribbon on top and then tied a the new Silver Baker’s Twine to that.

Finally I used Stampin Dimentionals to pop the image up off the strip.

All these supplies and more can be purchased in my shop. Just click on the thumbnail of the product you want and it will take you there.
