Your Biggest Fan - Hooray!

Your Biggest Fan Bundle

First we can say Hourra! That's French for Hooray!

The Biggest Fan Bundle is featured on page 69 in the Stampin' Up! January to June Catalog and the projects shown were all designed by the Concept Artists for the International catalog.

Depending on your area of the world, you'll have options for the language your greetings come in.

Choose: English, French, German, and limited supplies in Dutch. 

As a US Demonstrator I'm only allowed to sell products in English to US residents.

Technique One: Tone on Tone stamping

Let me just say - this is my FAVORITE stamping technique.

 

I use it ALL THE TIME.

 

You see it on the first card (on the left) when they use So Saffron ink to stamp on the So Saffron accent cardstock piece.

 

This creates a subtle background for the plain cardstock.

 

Next they did a faux tone on tone technique.

 

They used two pieces of 2" x 4" So Saffron patterned paper from the Subtles 6"x6" Designers Series Paper Pack.

 

Isn't that clever?!

 

The accent cardstock piece is attached using Dimensionals to give it some lift.

 

Pops of color in the Hooray and greeting

 

The Hooray (Hourra) is stamped in Balmy Blue, Daffodil Delight and Pear Pizzazz ink and then the "ticket" end is die cut using the dies from the Your Biggest Fan Bundle.

 

The greeting (Happy Birthday) is stamped in Calypso Coral ink onto a separate piece of Basic White cardstock then attached to the ticket using Dimensionals.

 

Hooray card in the middle card!

 

This card is a 4 1/4" x 8 1/2" Balmy Blue cardbase, that is then folded in half to make a square card.

 

The Hooray is stamped on separate pieces of Basic White cardstock using Balmy Blue, Daffodil Delight and Pear Pizzazz ink.

 

Happy Birthday is stamped using Calypso Coral ink onto a smaller piece of Basic White Cardstock.

 

 

The tone on tone technique is used again when they stamped some speckles onto the blue cardbase using Balmy Blue ink.

 

The center stripe is created using a 4" x 2" piece of paper from the You're a Peach paper pack.

 

All of the words are attached using Dimensionals in a random pattern over the paper piece.

 

Then to accent the card they attached some Resin Stars for a little twinkle.

 

Such a fun card!

 

Card three - Hurra (Hooray in German)

 

The cardbase is a 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" Pear Pizzazz cardstock, folded in half with a top hinge.

 

A piece of 5 1/4" x 4" Pear Pizzazz paper from the Subtles pack is attached to the cardfront to create that faux tone on tone look.

 

The ticket outline is stamped with Calypso Coral ink and the Hooray greeting was stamped three times with Daffodil Delight ink.

 

Happy Birthday is stamped with Balmy Blue ink in the bottom part of the ticket.

 

Stitched Stars are die cut from So Saffron, Balmy Blue, and Calypso Coral cardstock.

 

They attached some loops of White Baker’s Twine and then attached the stamped greeting panel over the top using Dimensionals.

 

Wasn't that fun?!

 

Simple stamping does make cute cards!

March 2022 - Card Kit in the Mail is 2 yrs old!

KIT IS SOLD OUT!

Our Card Kit in the Mail is 2 years old this month!

It was born out of necessity! We had card kits prepped for an in person event that wasn't allowed to happen.

Instead of letting the cards go to waste, we offered them to the people to work on in the privacy of their own homes.

Then we opened them up to others who might have wanted a little creative release during a very trying time.

To celebrate that need to be creative, but maybe in a smaller way, we are premiering a "Mini Kit"!

This is a smaller version of our usual 8 card kit.

The Mini Kit is a 4 card Kit!

It will still have all the card parts, envelopes, color instructions, but in a in a snack size! At a snack price!

This mini kit will be offered this month exclusively for $14!

KIT IS CLOSED

 

Want more cards?!

You can still get 8 cards at the same $25 price!

Simplicity with a little flair

I describe my style as simplicity with a little flair!

Here is the card that I made with the new Heart & Home Suite and shared in my team swap.

I have the complete measurements and tips for you below.

Not my usual color combination

 

I choose my card colors from Heart and Home Designer Series Paper . Initially I wasn't sure I liked the colors together, but now that I've used it,  I really like it!

The cardbase is Cinnamon Cider in the usual half cardstock piece.

It is then folded in half for a left hinge opening.

The background piece is cut to 4" X 5 1/4" from Pale Papaya cardstock and has the greeting accent punched out of it using the Label Me Lovely punch before attaching to the card.

I stamped the greeting from the Blessings of Home Bundle using Cinnamon Cider ink on a scrap piece of Basic White cardstock before I punched it out using the Everyday Label punch.

The two different patterns of Heart and Home Designer Series Paper are cut to 3 3/4"x 4" for the top piece and 3 3/4" x 1" high for the bottom piece.

The paper seam between the two pieces is covered by a 4" wide x 1" high piece of Brushed Metallic Cardstock.

Layer the greeting over the accent piece and attach together.

Then use Stampin' Dimensionals to pop the greeting up a little.

I added floral accents that I cut out using Garden Green cardstock and the dies from the Bundle. You can attach one end behind the combined greeting label.

I finished it off by sprinkling some of the new Polished Dots over the card front.

Basic but pretty touches!

I have a very simple style for my cards! I just like to add a little touch here and there to dress it up a little.

Have you determined your style yet, or are you just getting started? I'd love for you to follow my blog and I'd love to provide you some weekly inspiration.
