Mojo Monday #435 – It’s My Party Birthday Card

Hi Everyone!

A new week has gone and that means it’s time for another Mojo Monday sketch challenge!

Julee over at Mojo created a fun panel sketch for us to play with. You should play along too and use up some of your stash! 😉 If you haven’t played in challenges before and you’re not sure what to do, just send me an email and I’ll help you through it! They are fun and sometimes there’s even a contest to win prizes! 🙂

I used the It’s My Party design paper stack for this card. This paper pad is such a great deal! You get 48 – 12″x 12″ sheets of design paper for $26.00. That’s only $0.54/sheet! You need this paper, it’s so cute and has some great designs! Plus there is a whole slough of It’s My Party products to coordinate with this lovely paper.

I made this card for my awesome husband. He’ll only be 33 in a couple weeks! (wish I was still in my 30’s!) Maybe then I’d have enough energy to chase my toddlers around lol!

I used the Party with Cake clear mount stamp set for this card and the Number of Years bundle (has stamp set and framelits!). The panels of design paper are cut at 2″ x 4″. The center Mint Macaron square is 3-1/4″ x 3-1/2″. The Whisper White square is 3″ x 3-1/4″.  I also used a hint of the  clear Wink of Stella on the numbers, can you see the shimmer below? I just LOVE this stuff!

The ink pads I used for stamping:

  • Basic Black Archival
  • Melon Mambo
  • Mint Macaron
  • Crushed Curry

Stampin Up Party with Cake – Birthday or Celebration Card

Hi Everyone!

I just wanted to share this quick card I made using the Party with Cake and Timeless Textures stamp sets. My inspiration for this card was in the Occasions catalog on page 3! I love using the beautiful designs by Stampin Up and then modifying them how I like.

Ok, I cannot say how much I love this Timeless Textures stamp set. You need it. It’s super versatile and makes the coolest images. You can make your own background, decorate a box, make “coffee under your cup table stains”, rain, snow, or even confetti like I did here! Plus way more fun designs! tmp_2375-PhotoGrid_1454778769414-1174672854

I love how the washi tape almost looks like design paper here. I cut the whisper white to 3-3/4″ x 5-1/2″ so you could really see the edges. After I stamped and embellished how I wanted it, I used dimensionals to pop it up. I also used a white card base cut at 5-1/2 x 8-1/2″ and scored down the middle.

The It’s My Party enamel dots are SO so cute! Love! I love to put them on like confetti! Such a sweet pop of color! I stapled on my twine using our mini stapler.

You can purchase any of the products shown from my online store HERE. Some of my favorites are the Timeless Textures stamp set, the It’s my Party Washi Tape and the It’s My Party enamel dots. Oh, can’t forget the Party with Cake stamp set too!

Thanks for stopping by!

Mini Treat Bag – It’s My Party, Sale-A-Bration

tmp_3532-PhotoGrid_1454797664406-1174672854

Hi Guys!

#1 – I just LOVE the mini treat bag from Stampin’ Up!….#2, I love making treats for my friends and loved ones!

This die is perfect for just that. I can’t wait to use it to make cute treat bags for my kid’s school parties too. Oh, and their birthday party favors! I can see getting use out of this product for years to come! 🙂

Here is a sweet little treat bag I designed for my class using just the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits!  I love the colors of the It’s My Party Design Paper…so bright and cheery! There’s Melon Mambo, Crushed Curry, Basic Black and Mint Macaron, to name a few. I created a card first at 3-1/4″ x 4-3/4″ using Whisper White. Then I added some DSP at 3″ x 4-1/2″. I punched a scalloped tag topper using Melon Mambo and finished it with a washi tape covered clothespin and baker’s twine. I stamped Happy Valentine’s Day using Teeny Tiny Wishes.

tmp_3532-20160206_1129171188815832

 

Then I made the cutest little treat bag using the Mini Treat Bag die and the Botanical Gardens Designer vellum stack (Sale-A-Bration Item!) I found out that using vellum is tricky with the Big Shot…but here is how I set up my “sandwich”:

  1. Magnetic Platform
  2. Vellum
  3. Mini Treat Bag Thinlit die
  4. 2 sheets of printer paper or grid paper (cut down to fit through the BigShot)
  5. Cutting plate

It MAY be different for you because of the different calibrations of all the BigShots. This is because we all use them with different sized dies and the number of times used makes a difference! Just try to troubleshoot and you’ll come up with what works for your own machine. The first time I tried it using a different “sandwich” I didn’t have “creases” but instead the thinlit cut all the way through.

After I put together my treat bag using Fast Fuse (I find this is great for vellum!), I cut out some banners to adhere to the front of my bag. I used the It’s My Party DSP Stack. You get 48 sheets of this paper! Such a great deal! Here are the sizes of the 3 banners:

  1. 2″ x 3″
  2. 2-1/2″ x 1-1/4″
  3. 2″ x 3/4″

Then I added a Blushing Bride Glimmer paper heart using the elements that come from the treat bag thinlits, a strip of hearts using Basic Black cardstock and a cute little wire bow embellishment! Perfect for dessing up this little bag. I know it’s a little “fancy”, but that’s what I was going for 😉  Thanks for stopping by! Be sure to follow my blog to see future projects and video tutorials!

Minnie Mouse Turning One Card -Number of Years & Large Framelits

I made this sweet Minnie Mouse birthday card for my friends daughter that just turned one. They LOVE Disney! Our circle punches are perfect for making any size Minnie or Mickey!

I used the Number of Years stamp set from the Occasions catalog. Finally a good sized, easy to use number set. 🙂 The framelits match and if you purchase as a bundle you save 15%! (Just like Geico! Lol)…but everyone knows that. 😉

tmp_19533-PhotoGrid_1454520833619-53800659

 

The design paper is retired but I needed something with polka dots and this Halloween paper from last year was perfect! (Happy Haunting)

I made the bow with the mini heart punch from the Itty Bitty Punch Pack and finished it with a pearl. I love how simple and sweet this card is!

Here are the products I used to make it:

Mojo Monday Sale-A-Bration Card -Going Global, Perfect Pairings & Cupcakes!

Okay….so I must have been VERY tired when I wrote this post! Hahaha….Crazy me, I posted the wrong card and even linked it to the Mojo Monday sketch! So, yes, wrong card and wrong layout posted to the Mojo Monday 433 Challenge. So, number 118 posted on the Mojo Challenge should be THIS card right here! I used the World Traveler embossing folder too, so cute for a pop of texture, but I think that would also make a great background! The paper is the Going Places Design Paper 6 x 6 pad, you get 4 each of 12 double sided designs! So many designs for some great card making or crafting! The “Seriously” and the “Son” stamp came from a past Paper Pumpkin kit. I love how I get so many stamps in my kit and now I have lots of stamps to choose from when I need just the right greeting!

Here is the Mojo Monday Contest Sketch #433 for the week of February 1st! This is such a simple and cute sketch.

Supply List

Built for Free Using: My Stampin Blog

I figured it out! The card below is actually for the Mojo Monday 431 sketch, not 433. I was late and missed the posting time for this and obviously forgot lol!

I decided to use the Sale-A-Bration set Perfect Pairings for this card. I stamped it with Happy Day to You on the front and then the Happy Birthday on the inside. I love this Cherry on Top designer paper, it’s so sweet and also versatile! (Not just for birthdays – but aren’t these ice-creams & cupcakes cute??)

I used the cute little cupcake punch for this and punched the top and bottom of the cupcake. I also punched out a little cherry. Then I put it together and topped it with some Crystal Effects (gives it that glossy & raised look), which I need to use more! Love!

This set is a Sale-A-Bration stamp set so remember, just spend $50 before tax and shipping and you can get it for free!

And speaking of birthdays…here is my sweet, darling daughter on her 2nd birthday from a couple weeks ago!! She loves Frozen as you can see. I can’t believe how big she is! Where is the time going…..
