STAMPIN' UP! FABLE FRIENDS FOR EASTER AND BABY - April Stamp Camp

Hi, Stampers!
      I have always loved the illustrations in the Beatrix Potter tales and this set is inspired by those tales and Mother Goose, at least that's how it appears to me.  See my posts of March 10 and 27 for more Fable Friends samples.  Here are the details and products I used for these sweet little cards.

Happy Stampin’!

Details
  • Chose desired color for vertical A2 card base to match Gingham Gala DSP.
  • Trim DSP for background to 5-1/4 x 4 and adhere to front of card base.  I used a small pattern from the Needlepoint Nook DSP.
  • Add a strip of Gingham Gala DSP 2" x 5-1/2" and adhere to middle of DSP layer.
  • Trim a piece of card stock to match the card base to 1-3/4" x 4-1/2" and punch one end with the Banner Triple Punch.
  • Trim a piece of Shimmery White CS to 1-1/2" x 4-3/8", punch one end with Banner Triple Punch.  Stamp bunny with Memento Black and color with Stampin' Blends, coloring the shirt to match your card base.  I used Light and Dark Crumb Cake Blends for the bunny with a little Dark Petal Pink on the ears.
  • Add a bow below your bunny on the Shimmery White.  Stamp desired spring, Easter or baby sentiment on the Gingham Gala and adhere Shimmery White.
  • If you want a girl bunny, punch a bitty flower and add to one ear, with a pearl at the center from the Share What You Love Artisan Pearls or color a Basic Pearl with Blends..
  • On a 5-1/4 x 4 piece of WW card stock, stamp little squirrel and color the daisy flower and leaves with Blends.  Adhere to inside of card.

PLAYING AROUND (AGAIN)! FAIRY TALE BIRTHDAY with FABLE FRIENDS


Hello, Stampers!
     I picked up some new toys this past weekend at the Heirloom show in Danville, IN.  I purchased this book stamp and die set from Toomuchfunrubberstamps.
     My sentiment and Peter Rabbit book title were created on my laptop after much trial and error.  I printed them on labels, added to card stock and punched out or die-cut.  The book is stamped on Whisper White in Crumb Cake and stamped again on the DSP in Soft Suede, then die-cut. glued, etc.  I used a retired tri-corner punch for the corners on the DSP, but there is a pretty punch that is current, called "Detailed Trio," on p.211 in the Annual Catalog.  The Fable Friends set also makes adorable baby cards, of course.
    The main Stampin' Up! products I used are set out below on my blog.  Please do leave a comment with any questions.

Happy Stampin’!

INSPIRE.CREATE.CHALLENGES - #038 Sketch Challenge




No photo description available.

Hi, Stampers!
     The above Inspire.Create.Challenges 038 Sketch Challenge was too simple for me to pass up.  I flipped it and used a piece of Whisper White Country Floral embossed card stock and added my cute squirrel friend from Fable Friends. Both were colored with Stampin' Blends. The lavender background is from the Needlepoint Nook DSP pack.  That's it!

Happy Stampin’!

ENCOURAGEMENT CARD WITH STAMPIN' UP!® FABLE FRIENDS


Hi, Stampers!
     The images in the SU! Fable Friends set are so like the adorable illustrations in Beatrix Potter books, and I love these little ducklings.  I kept thinking, "ducks in a row, ducks in a row..."  I decided the phrase was perfect for someone in our family trying to cope with a major life change and, voila!, I utilized my newly discovered (to me, anyway) method to add my own verse inside a card.  It sure opens up lots of possibilities!
   I've listed products below, which is really all you need to know.  Everything else is pretty much standard.  The Shimmery White stitched rectangle is 2-3/8 x 3-5/8; the offset piece of Grapefruit Grove is 2-3/4 x 3-3/4.  One note of caution:  use markers, not Blends for coloring the mama goose on the inside of your card, because it might show through the back - take it from me.  ;-(


Happy Stampin’!

QUICK & EASY STAMPIN' UP! FABLE FRIENDS TREAT TAGS FOR EASTER


Hello, Stampers!
     It's never too early to start on making favors when you have to make about 20 of them!  And when the Easter candy hits the shelves, I get started. Out of necessity, I always try to come up with something quick and easy to share. These little bags hold a dozen Easter "eggs" (by M&M's) and are tied with whatever thick or medium SU! Baker's twine I had laying around, or a narrow ribbon works great, too.
     I used pieces of Gingham Gala DSP for the tags (p.35, OC) cut 2 x 4-1/2 and punched with the Tag Topper Punch and I rounded the corners.  I stamped the bunny and goose in Memento on WW card stock and colored just a few areas with Blends - clothes, ears, bill, feet - and die-cut with a scalloped oval from the Layering Ovals Framelits Dies.  Stamped the sentiment in color or Memento.  Oval is added with liquid glue, the sentiment with a glue dot or Dimensionals. Tie your bag shut, add and tie the tag and you're done!  I've only got 15 more to go!  ;-D  Products are below.


Happy Stampin’!

Hi, Stampers!
