Birthday Theme Bloghop

Welcome to the Team Stamp It Group Birthday Theme Blog Hop.  
Whether you started the blog hop with my blog or "hopped" over to my blog from one of my teammates blog, I am happy you stopped by. 
 I love the Special Reason stamp set and using it to make this card was so fun, especially with the Rock n' Roll technique (see video at bottom of this post) and the Stylish Stems framelits dies.
The ink colors I used to make the "rock n' roll" flowers were Flirty Flamingo and Crushed Curry, but you could use any coordinating color combination. The Watermelon Wonder card base was randomly stamped with Watermelon Wonder ink using the large flower from the Special Reason stamp set.  Flirty Flamingo cardstock was used to make the delicate detailed flower.  The solid leaves were stamped with Old Olive ink onto Whisper White cardstock and cut out with the Stylish Stems Framelits dies.  I used Old Olive cardstock and the Stylish Stems framelits dies to make the cut out the intricate detailed leaves. 
The Stylish Stems framelits dies set comes with two label dies that can be used individually or together.  I used the two label dies together to create the border around the sentiment on this card, which gives the label a recessed look. The Special Reason stamp set comes with a coordinating border stamp, which I used to stamp the border around the label in Flirty Flamingo ink.  The sentiment is stamped in Early Espresso ink and is from the Avant Gardens stamp set that is one of our Sale-A-Bration stamp sets that you can get for FREE!!
The projects you make with this stamp set will be gorgeous.  Another reason why I love this stamp set is that it comes with sentiment stamps that can be used for the inside of the card, as well as, stamps for the outside. The Special Reason stamp set can be purchased with the coordinating Stylish Stems framelits dies as a bundle, which is an added bonus or individually as a wood mount or clear mount stamp set.

Love is in the Air Card

All I can say about this card is it is so stinking cute!
This card was made using a Real Red card base.  The next panel is from the Sending Love Designer Series Paper Pack. The sentiment on the Whisper White front panel is from the Lift Me Up stamp set, which is available in either clear or wood mount or as a bundle with the coordinating Up & Away Thinlits Dies.  
The puppy and bird are stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento ink and are from the Bella & Friends stamp set. They were then colored using the new Stampin' Up! Watercolor Pencils and a Stampin' Up! Blender Pen.  The little heart the parrot is holding was stamped separately using a Real Red Stampin' Write Marker and then colored in with the red Watercolor pencil. The sentiment on the balloon heart is from the Lift Me Up stamp set and is stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento ink onto Real Red card stock.  The heart was cut out using the coordinating Up & Away Thinlits dies and the Big Shot Die Cutting Machine. The heart is adhered to the card front panel using a Stampin' Dimensional.  The card front panel is adhered to the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals.
The sentiment on the inside of the card is from the Sealed with Love stamp set and is stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento ink.  The heart in the corner is from the Lift Me Up stamp set and is also stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento ink.
