Stampin’ Up! birthday

Good Tuesday morning everyone! We had a nice rain over the weekend, a beautiful Sunday and Monday. I think Sunday night was our coldest so far this fall, but no frost, at least where I live.

I have several birthdays coming up so this is for one of them.

front

I began with a Crumb Cake card base . This is a 5″ square card, different than what I usually do.

The mat is Early Espresso with 3 equal size pieces of map paper adhered with liquid glue. I then took 4 pieces of jute twine and tied the knot. Some call it a granny knot, some a nautical knot, but whatever it is, I like it on masculine cards. This was wrapped to the back of the mat and taped SECURELY.

The anchor is from the Seaside Shore stamp set, stamped in Early Espresso and fussy cut. I used Glue Dots to adhere it to the ‘rope’.

The ship, from The Open Sea (retired) was stamped in Basic Gray on Smokey Slate card stock and colored in with Smokey Slate and Island Indigo Stampin’ Write markers. I used the White Chalk marker to color the clouds and Real Red for the flags, then fussy cut a general shape and adhered it with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The Early Espresso mat is Fast Fused to the card base.

On the inside, I adhered an Early Espresso mat to my card base, then die cut the Happy Birthday sentiment from another panel of the map paper. This die is from Simply Defined and gives a totally different look to the card. Liquid glue adhered it to the mat.

This was pretty fast and simple to do,yet the effect is nice. Since it is a square card, I had to make an envelope, using the envelope punch board, as I have no square envelopes. Another piece of the map paper made a very nice one, needing no further embellishment.

Stampin’ Up! Colorful Seasons

If you are cleaning up from Harvey or Irma, or a wildfire or other disaster, please know that my heart breaks for what you are going through. My prayers were mostly for safety, not for no damage or mess. Does anyone know whether there is any historical evidence of increased activity following a total eclipse? Just wondering.

My card today was inspired by Global Design Project 104

Pretty and simple. I think my card is also pretty, and simple, even though it has several layers.wild wing creations003
I began with an Early Espresso card base for a 5″ x 7″ card. Most card makers prefer the smaller A2 size, but I prefer the larger size for a lot of my cards. This could just as easily have been a smaller one. I digress.
I cut a Pumpkin Pie mat to which I adhered a Crumb Cake panel randomly stamped in Crumb Cake with the maple leaf stamp from the Colorful Seasons set.
Using the three largest squares from the Stitched Shapes framelits, I cut one each of Early Espresso, Pumpkin Pie and Crumb Cake.
The sentiment, from Special Reason (retired), was stamped in Versamark ink and heat embossed in Copper Emboss Powder on the smaller Crumb Cake square.
I put the Pumpkin Pie square on the diagonal on the Early Espresso square, and squared up the sentiment. These were liquid glued together and adhered to the leafy panel with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
The leaf, from Colorful Seasons, was stamped in Versamark and heat embossed with Copper Emboss powder. I then used Stampin’ sponges (cut in quarters) to dab Crushed Curry, Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive and Cajun Craze all over it. It was liquid glued to the lower side of the sentiment square.

Actually, I stamped, embossed and sponged two leaves, and both were then die cut with the leaf from Seasonal Layers thinlits. To me, this is the perfect, simple embellishment for this card.
I considered adding copper thread, or a bow with the copper trim. However, it seemed to me to be overkill, so I opted to leave it plain.
On the inside I repeated the random leaf stamping, only this time just around the edge for a border.

The sentiment, also from Special Reason, as well as the Happiest Birthday from Cool Treats, was stamped in Versamark and heat embossed with the Copper powder. I love the magic that happens with the heat tool and embossing powder!
The second leaf was liquid glued just above the sentiment and this card is done.
The envelope was stamped with the same stamp in Crumb Cake-three on the front and randomly across the flap.wild wing creations001

I hope you enjoy this card as much as I enjoyed making it.
