Marquee Messages, Pop of Pink, Star Birthday Shaker Card!

Here is my sample card for this weeks Stampin' Royalty
the theme is To DIE For, use your dies! 
i recently purchased the Stars Framelits Dies, and really wanted to incorporate those into a shaker birthday card somehow... 
well, here's what happened after about an hour and a half! :oD

The great thing is, you can use just about any color for this card to customize it to the person you are giving it to!  I did want to go for a girls card, and make it 'rocky'! so what better than black and Melon Mambo? 

I think i will make a few more...

most of this is pretty self explanatory,  but i should mention i stamped the stars on the Cardbase in Craft White using the Perpetual Birthday Calendar set, and used my Dies to make the large stars, and i used a retired star punch for the small accent star, but there are other dies currently available that you could substitute very nicely for the same look. 

Ink-  Basic Black, Craft White
Stamps- Marquee Messages, Perpetual Birthday Calendar
Cardstock- Basic Black, Melon Mambo, Whisper White
Accessories- Pop of Pink DSP, Silver Glimmer Paper, Silver Sequins, Wink of Stella Pen

Grateful Bunch, Swirly Bird Gift Bag

The theme at Stampin' Royalty this week is to choose one of the Goddesses favorite color schemes and make a project using those colors!
My favorite colors are Black, White, and Melon Mambo, with a touch of Pink Pirouette!

i love the boldness, but girly-ness about these colors.. they are so 'me'! 
I had a few little goodies i wanted to give to a friend, so i bundled them up, tied them with some ribbon, and roughly measured around it to see how big i needed to make my 'bag'. I then used those measurements to cut some DSP from the Pop of Pink Specialty pack, then used some scraps from the same pack, and made a bag and some banners, then used my Whisper White, cut a panel, then stamped using the Grateful Bunch and Swirly Bird sets. I can't wait to give this to my friend! 

Ink - Melon Mambo, Smoky Slate, Pink Pirouette 
Stamps - Swirly Bird, Grateful Bunch

Special Day With My Mom

had a WONDERFUL day spending time with my mom for her birthday yesterday! We did a little shopping at our favorite store, went to lunch, and we usually stamp something when we get together, and yesterday was no exception! I had been very busy the week before, and didn't have a whole lot of time to prepare anything for us to work on, but lo and behold, i had several kits and Paper Pumpkins that were waiting to be shown some love! i have to tell you, these are the best things ever! this was the perfect occasion to have them for! no thinking, no prep work, just open it up,and have fun! 
As you can see, we tweaked the designs just a little, (one was inspired by a card on Pinterest!) and that is the beauty of it! if you feel like you don't have a creative bone in your body but would still love to make something, everything is ready for you! but if you want to make it your own, the sky is the limit! 

We had a great day!!

Swirly Scribbles, Rose Wonder Birthday Card

I was able to use my BRAND NEW Swirly Scribbles Die along with my Rose Garden Dies to make this lovely card!  The Swirly Scribbles Thinlits Dies will be available next month!!  Such a cute set, and i can't wait to find all kinds of ways to use it!
 The 'scribbled' lines were cut using Whisper White and then with Smoky Slate, and i just used the negative pieces from the Smoky Slate to fill in the spaces on the Whisper White piece.  i also used pieces from the Rose Garden Die set to add some other elements. for the flower centers, i used the sprinkles from the Cupcake Builder Punch. Glue it all together and there ya go! 

Ink- Crumb Cake, Smoky Slate
Cardstock - Whisper White, Crumb Cake, Pool Party, Smoky Slate
Stamps - Rose Wonder

Rose Wonder Moroccan Nights Purple Birthday Card

Here is my sample card for this weeks Stampin' Royalty Picture Inspiration Challenge!

here is the picture inspiration:

For this one, i just sponged ink on Whisper White cardstock and splattered water to get a mottled background look. I made the ribbon using the White Satin Ribbon and a sponge that i inked then sprayed with water, then ran it across the ribbon. I then stamped directly on it using a stamp from the Moroccan Nights and StazOn, and added Silver Dazzling Details to the centers of the designs.
I did cut the one side of the rose where the leaf met the rose and used just a portion of it so it would fit better on the card. 

Stamps - Moroccan Nights, Rose Wonder
Ink - Elegant Eggplant, Wisteria Wonder
Cardstock - Wisteria Wonder, Perfect Plum, Whisper White
Accessories - White Satin Ribbon, Rose Garden Thinlits Dies

Marquee Messages Birthday Card

This card was made with my BRAND NEW stamp set, Marquee Messages!!! (perk of being a Demonstrator! we get some stamp sets before anyone else!) we received it in our Stampin' Up On Stage event bags! I needed to make a card that was kind of neutral, so it gave me an excellent reason to use this set!  although, any reason is a good reason to stamp, right? 

I put a little extra effort into this one. I first stamped the main image, then colored certain parts, and then stamped the banner portion of the image on Island Indigo, embossed the "birthday" in black, then cut it out, and paper pieced it onto the main image. the little 'stars' or 'sparkles' were stamped, colored, cut out, and applied to the main image. I used circle punches and Real Red and Island Indigo for the background circles.  The dotted background paper is a SaleaBration DSP.  I used Crystal Effects on the 'lights' on the arrow portion, on the 'sparkels' and also on the red stripes on the side. I then added Wink of Stella to the "Its Your" part to give it a little extra something :o)

Ink: (used for coloring) Island Indigo, Daffodil Delight, Real Red
Cardstock: Island Indigo, Whisper White, Real Red, Basic Black
Stamps: Marquee Messages
Accessories: DSP, Crystal Effects, Circle Punches, Wink of Stella Glimmer Pen

Sassy Salutations Washi Tape Balloon Birthday Card

Here is my sample card for this weeks Stampin' Royalty Challenge!

This card was very simple to make! it uses only Washi Tape, Glimmer Paper, Two punches, one stamp, and Black ink!
I adhered washi tape to some scrap cardstock, and used the balloon punches to make balloons. Then just put washi tape on a diagonal on a Thick Whisper White cardbase, stamped the Happy Birthday from the Sassy Salutations set in Basic Black, then punched some balloons out of Silver Glimmer paper and put it all together! 

Stamps- Sassy Salutations
Cardstock - Whisper White
Ink- Basic Black
