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!

Rose Wonder Piece of Cake Birthday Card

The theme at Stampin' Royalty this week is a Color Challenge!

Well, since i always seem to gravitate towards Birthday cards, 
why make this week any different, right? haha..
As i was trying to come up with a design, i looked through my pack of Cherry On Top paper for a possible paper to use that had these colors in them. When i came upon the Watermelon Wonder one with the slices of cake on it, i thought to myself, i bet i could make one of these out of cardstock and have it be the main focal point of  the card... 
as my brain started working, i came up with a basic idea of the card above. I then set about making the slice of cake. it took me trying it twice to get it right, but i think it turned out pretty good! 
I will be making a video tutorial soon on how i made it, and the card!

My Very First Stampin' Tutorial Video!

Well, i have been wanting to do it for several years now, but i finally made it happen! 
My VERY FIRST Stampin' Video Tutorial! 

In this video, i explain how i made THIS card. So if you need a supply list, you can refer to that post, as i have included it there. 

I need to find a way to improve the quality of the video itself for my next one, but i do hope you like it! My favorite part is the little animation my 12 year old daughter made for me as an opener :o)

By the Tide, From Land to Sea, Wetlands Birthday Card

We could either use green in our project, which i did, or upcycle/recycle something. 

This card was totally inspired by THIS awesome card by Susan Best at Stampin' Inferno
Love her card! 

I began by embossing the Pear Pizzazz background panel with the Decorative Dots Embossing Folder, then on a Whisper White panel, i used my sponges and created a mottled background, then sprinkled water on it to give it an underwater or bubble effect... Such a cool technique!
I then stamped the fan coral along the bottom.
After stamping, coloring, and cutting out the Sea Turtles, i adhered them to the panel using Dimensionals. I added some Baked Brown Sugar Bakers Twine in a criss cross pattern on the side. The twine is no longer available, but any natural type string or twine would work nicely. I then stamped the sentiment from the Wetlands set in Garden Green, punched it out using the Large Oval punch, and lightly inked the edges with Pear Pizzazz.
For the final touch, i put some White Perfect Accents on to enhance the final product, then i sat back and looked at it for a few minutes! I really like how it turned out!

Ink - Garden Green, Pool Party, Pear Pizzazz, Crumb Cake, 
Cardstock - Garden Green, Pear Pizzazz, Whisper White
Stamps - Wetlands, By the Tide, From Land to Sea

Sassy Salutations Cherry On Top Balloon Card

This weeks Challenge at Stampin' Royalty is a COLOR CHALLENGE!

This card took me 3 tries before i got it to where i was somewhat pleased with it haha...
All it took was a small balloon punch, some patterned paper, a little cardstock, and two stamps! 
I do wish that the Bermuda Bay watercolor portion would have stamped a little straighter, but waddya gonna do ;o)
I will probably make more of these now that i have the design down...

I cut the curve in the Whisper White cardstock using a plate and tracing it to make a curved edge. I did this with both the white and Bermuda Bay piece i used to layer with.
I just cut a piece of patterned paper from the Cherry On Top Designer Series Paper Stack and glued it to the bottom portion. I stamped the watercolor wash from the Perpetual Birthday Calendar set in Bermuda Bay, using a sponge to lift some of the ink before stamping so the color wouldn't be so intense. I then used my Basic Black and the Happy Birthday from Sassy Salutation for the greeting. 
I then punched several balloons using the small balloon punch and arranged and glued them down.  To give them the 'shine', i used my White Chalk Marker.  The hardest part about this card is arranging the balloons to look just right! Everything else was pretty easy!
