Let’s Make It… Family Party Birthday Card

Start with a (standard A6) card base created from Misty Moonlight cardstock. Follow this with a layer of Whisper White cardstock measuring 10 x 14.4 cm. This will form the card front.

Onto the card front, stamp the presents from the Stampin’ Up! Family Party Stamp Set in both Petal Pink and Balmy Blue ink. Add the decorations and bows by stamping in Misty Moonlight ink. Fill any unwanted white-space by stamping the star cluster in Misty Moonlight ink.

Stamp the sentiment onto Petal Pink cardstock in Misty Moonlight ink. I have used the ‘Happy Birthday’ sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Pallet Thoughts Stamp Set. Cut out the sentiment using the banner from the Stampin’ Up! Tasteful Labels Dies. Cut another banner from Balmy Blue cardstock and layer these together. Adhere the banners to the card front using Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

What do you think to my Family Party Birthday Card?

I hope you enjoyed finding out how to make this Family Party Birthday Card. Misty Moonlight is still my favourite of the 2020-2022 In Colours and I think it looks great combined with Balmy Blue and Petal Pink. I’m sure I’ll be using this colour combination again in the near future.

How to make a Misty Moonlight Christmas Card

Hello and welcome to the first edition of my September Colour Challenge. This month’s randomly chosen colour is Misty Moonlight. Week 1 is monochrome and I decided on the Stampin’ Up! Warm Hugs bundle to create this Misty Moonlight Christmas Card…

Let’s Make This Misty Moonlight Christmas Card…

Start with a (standard A6) card base created from Whisper White Thick cardstock. Next trim a layer of 2020-2022 In Colour Designer Series Paper (DSP) to 9.5 x 13.9 cm. For the final layer, trim a piece of Whisper White cardstock to 6.5 x 10.9 cm and emboss using the Pinewood Planks Embossing Folder.

Before adhering this layer to the card front, wrap around a length of Misty Moonlight ribbon and secure at the back. Tie a shorter length around this and trim the ends.

Stamp the sentiment and small images in Misty Moonlight ink onto Whisper White cardstock. I have used one of the sentiments from the Wrapped In Christmas Stamp Set. Cut out each of these elements with the coordinating dies. Adhere the die-cut elements to the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals and Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I Love Non-traditional Christmas Cards! Do You?

Welcome to Week 3 of my Coastal Cabana Colour Challenge! If you missed the previous two projects, you can find them here… Week 1 and Week 2. This week the combination is Coastal Cabana, Basic Grey and Pear Pizzazz. Given this combination, you first thought is probably not ‘Christmas’ but I love non-traditional Christmas cards! I’m sure this card will divide opinions for a number of reasons but what do YOU think?

Non-traditional Stampin' Up! Christmas Card by Helen Chapman Handmade Crafts

Let’s Make It…

Start with a (standard A6) landscape card base created from Basic Grey cardstock. Next trim a piece of the Playing With Patterns DSP to 9.5 x 13.9 cm and adhere it to the card base.

Punch three trees from Pear Pizzazz cardstock using the Pine Tree Punch.

Stamp the sentiment in Basic Grey ink onto a small piece of the DSP and cut out using the Tasteful Labels Dies. Use the larger label die to cut out a piece of Basic Grey cardstock and layer these together.

Adhere the trees to the back of the sentiment piece using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and adhere the whole piece to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

For the final touch, use a few of the Playing With Patterns Resin Dots to decorate the trees!
