Picture Perfect Birthday Mash-Up for Facebook Live

Hello everyone! Today I wanted to share the projects I featured on my weekly Facebook Live video. I usually go Live on Thursday’s at 2:30pm CST, but this week I was under the weather and went Live on Friday. Thanks for being patient with me y’all! 

have a free PDF linked at the end of this post that shares all of the measurements and a supply list for all of the projects. 

This week, I wanted to focus on the Picture Perfect Birthday stamp set from the Stampin’ Up!® Annual Catalog. I often find that I tend to focus on the Holiday Catalog at this time of the year, so I dialed it back to the Annual Catalog and want wanted to show how easy it was to blend stamp sets and product suites together. 

My first card was inspired by me sweet friend Laurie. Also, I can’t stop using this happy color combo of Bermuda Bay, Granny Apple Green and Mango Melody. 
Ok, I’ll give it a rest…I promise. :) 
For my second card, I wanted to “fancy to up” with the Petal Promenade DSP and some snazzy gold accents. Same stamp set, totally different look. 

My third card used the same stamp set paired with the Balloon Celebration stamp set and coordinating punch. The scalloped trim from the Seasonal Layers Thinlits and Striped Scallops Embossing Folder were meant to accent the balloons. 

All of the products I used to create the projects will be listed on the sheets, along with the measurements.

Painted Harvest Sketch for PP416

It’s Sunday and time for another weekly challenge over at The Paper Players. This week I am hosting and I have a SKETCH Challenge, which are my favorite challenges. They are a great starting point to get the creativity flowing. When I came up with this layout, I thought it would be fun to showcase different patterns of Designer Series Paper, so that’s what my plan was when I created my card. 
Y’all know I love LOTS of layers, but you can use as few or as many layers as you’d like on your project. You can also flip the sketch or turn it on it’s side…have some fun with it!
 I can’t wait to see what you come up with. 
I just love the Frosted Floral Designer Series paper. It has a really pretty pearlized finish on it which makes it extra fancy. I actually do not have the coordinating stamp set (yet) that coordinates with this paper, so I used a sentiment from the Painted Harvest stamp set for the card. I really like the font on the sentiment, don’t you. It’s tough to see in the photo, but I stamped it on Shimmer White Cardstock to go with the shimmer in the DSP. I also added some texture with the Petal Burst Embossing Folder and finally opened up the Frosted Epoxy Droplets as a finishing touch. They are SO pretty! 

 Card Measurements: 

  • Gray Granite Card Base - 4-1/4” x 11”, scored at 5-1/2”
  • Soft Suede Cardstock - 4” x 5-1/4”
  • Tranquil Tide Cardstock - 3-7/8” x 5-1/8” 
  • Gray Granite Cardstock (behind DSP) - 2-7/8” x 4-5/8” and 1-7/8” x 4-1/8” 
  • Frosted Floral DSP - 2-3/4” x 4-1/2”  and 1-3/4” x 4"

Finally, a quick shot of the inside of the card. I used a little more of the DSP along with some floral images from the Love What You Do stamp set.
