Build a Golden 22nd Birthday Celebration!

 

BuildABirthday-Sydney22Header-Lori-DSCN0021
Hello stampers!  I'm so happy that you are here because I am very excited to share with you a birthday card that I made for my daughter, Sydney, who celebrated her "Golden" birthday yesterday.  What is a "Golden" birthday?  Well, it's when your birthday and your new age are the same.  Sydney turned 22 on her birthday, June 22nd!  To celebrate my daughter's birthday always requires a very special  (handmade, of course) card.  I found that building the hype of her special day required one of the new stamp sets (Build A Birthday) found in the new catalog, page 11.  Sooo much fun!

 

BuildABirthday-Sydney22-Lori-DSCN0017

To 'build' this creation was easy, but the fussy cutting (in laymen terms...lots of hand cutting of the pieces) took a little bit of time. Let's check out the card deets:

  • Are you drooling over the color combination, yet?  My, oh my!  The colors of So Saffron and Lost Lagoon are my 2 newest favs right now!  The So Saffron card base is a regular A2 size (4-1/4" x 5-1/2") with the fold down the left side.
  • Every time I create a card for Sydney, I always give it a 'grunge' feel.  And, yes, Gorgeous Grunge is my go-to stamp set to help me with that look.  I think I used every stamped image, but one from this set.  Talk about getting your monies worth!  LOL  The Very Vanilla layer was plastered with So Saffron and Lost Lagoon ink with splotches, speckles, and hash marks.
  • The birthday cake was 'built' using lots of the images from the new Build A Birthday stamp set....again, using the So Saffron and Lost Lagoon inks.  These 'cake' pieces are the reason for all of the fussy cutting.  Because of the multitude of patterns for the cake, I used 2 of the framelits from the Circles Collection and die cut them one nested inside the other from our Vellum cardstock.  This was to form 2 pieces, a whole circle and the other a ringlet.  I used these vellum pieces to soften the layers of Build A Birthday cake layers from the Gorgeous Grunge patters. LOVE it!
  • All cake pieces are popped up using Stampin' Dimensionals and centered onto the Very Vanilla stamped piece.  I die cut the numbers "22" from Lost Lagoon cardstock using the new Little Numbers framelits.  How stinkin' cute is it to add the flames to the top of the numbers to make it look like candles?!!
  • The whole Very Vanilla & Lost Lagoon layer was popped up using Stampin' Dimensionals and centered onto the card base.  VOILA!  That's all she wrote folks!

OSAT Blog Hoppers Celebrate Father's Day

OSATBlogHop-HeaderHello everyone!  I am so happy to have you stop by to check out what I have to share with you. Today, the One Stamp At a Time (OSAT) Blog Hoppers are sharing some super fun masculine or Father's Day cards and 3D projects.  If you came from Diane Squires' blog or made my blog your first visit of the day, you are in for some super fun creations.  I know that, at some point, everyone struggles with this category, so let's take a peek at my creations, shall we?!!

OSATHop-EnvShirtCard-Lori-9979

Can you guess what the 'suit jacket' was made with?  If you guessed the Envelope Punch board...ding-ding-ding...you are correct!  **squeal**  I got the inspiration for this from a magazine that is only available to Stampin' Up! demonstrators.  There is a great promotion going on for the month of June...everyone can join...Hobby crafters/stampers and those that want to build a business and earn money doing so.  You do not want to miss this....more details will be at the end of this post.

OSATHop-ShirtCardOpen-Lori-9973

My husband has to wear a suit everyday for work, so I thought this was a perfect fit for him.  The only difference is that he does not wear bow ties, but I just had to show off the Bow Builder punch and what cute little bows it creates.  I just love how the 'dress shirt' is the card insert....super fun pocket card.

So, by day and during the week, my husband is in a suit all day, but he would much rather be sporting a polo, shorts, and golf shoes.  LOL

OSATHop-BasketGolfBalls-Lori-9967

Every golfer loves to go to the driving range with a bucket of balls every now and then to work on their swing...either to get rid of the bad 'slice' or 'hook' that can put a damper on a good game of 18 holes.  The 'bucket' was made with the Berry Basket Bigz die and Vanilla Coaster board.  I love our Coaster board!  It is just the right thickness to die cut an image that you would like to have a little more sturdiness than what our 80 lb cardstock provides.  I decided to 'white wash' the basket band using Crushed Curry ink from the lid of my ink pad and my Aqua Painter.  Then, I covered the side walls with the same designer paper used on the card.  I searched high and low for chocolate golf balls, but apparently, the sport of golf is not that popular for the candy retailers.  Hmmm.....really?!!  So, I found these large pearly white gum balls.  No dimples, but you get the idea, right?

OSATHop-ShirtCardGolfBasket-Lori-9965
The golf flag was punched using the Tree punch and Real Red cardstock.  The word 'Dad' comes from the Guy Greetings stamp set, inked in Basic Gray ink and stamped.  I hope you enjoyed and are inspired to create your next masculine card and/or project.  If you struggle making a masculine card, do what I did and look for inspiration in a magazine, a retail store, Pinterest, the decor of your home....it's everywhere...just let your imagination run.  Speaking of running....you best check out the next blog hopper, James Weber.  I tell you, this Dude can stamp!
