Bonanza Buddies Card

Hello and welcome to the fourth and final part of my Stampin’ Up! Birthday Bonanza Suite Showcase. If you have missed the previous instalments you can find them here (part 1 – gift tag, part 2 – cards, part 3 – cake toppers).

This week I wanted to share with you a really fun peek-a-boo card which would be perfect for a child’s birthday. It features the three cute characters from the Bonanza Buddies stamp set and is wonderfully colourful but easy to create. I hope you like it!

Let’s make it…

The card base is created from Whisper White Thick cardstock and I have rounded the corners using the Detailed Trio Punch. The windows were created using the 2″ (lion and koala) and 2.25″ (toucan) Circle Punches to allow the characters to ‘peek’ through.

All three characters are stamped onto Whisper White cardstock and cut out using the coordinating Bonanza Dies. The koala is stamped in Smoky Slate ink with Memento Tuxedo Black features; the toucan is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink with a Mango Melody beak; and the lion is stamped in Daffodil Delight ink with a Mango Melody mane and Memento Tuxedo Black features.

The characters were adhered to the inside of the card such that they ‘peek’ through the windows. The excess cardstock was removed using Paper Snips.

I have decorated the card front using the feature colours from the Suite – Terracotta Tile, Grapefruit Grove, Mango Melody, Daffodil Delight, Coastal Cabana and Bermuda Bay.I have decorated the card front using the feature colours from the Suite – Terracotta Tile, Grapefruit Grove, Mango Melody, Daffodil Delight, Coastal Cabana and Bermuda Bay.

The sentiment is stamped in Bermuda Bay ink onto Whisper White cardstock and cut out using the 2″ Circle Punch. I have also decorated the sentiment piece using the balloon stamp, again using the feature colours. This is then adhered to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals to give the final touch to this simple but fun card.

Birthday Bonanza Cake Toppers

Hello and welcome to part 3 of my Stampin’ Up! Birthday Bonanza Suite Showcase. If you missed the first two parts you can find them here… part 1, part 2.

This week I have a really fun project for you – cake toppers! There are so many images in the Bonanza Buddies Stamp Set that lend themselves to these cute little decorations. They are sure to add the perfect finishing touch to any party.

Let’s make them…

I have used the colours from the Suite to stamp the images onto Whisper White cardstock – Terracotta Tile, Grapefruit Grove, Mango Melody, Daffodil Delight, Coastal Cabana and Bermuda Bay. I have also used Smoky Slate and Memento Tuxedo Black.

The Bonanza Dies were used to cut out the bunting (from the Birthday Bonanza DSP) and the characters. The candles and presents were cut using snips as these are really simple shapes.

Where the images are mounted on circles, I have used the 2″ Circle and Starburst Punches in Whisper White and coordinating colours respectively. The ‘Let’s Celebrate You’ sentiment was cut out using the Classic Label punch and this cake topper also features some of the Sequins from the Sale-A-Bration Metallic Baker’s Twine and Sequins Combo pack.

I have cut an extra character using the dies (or circle using the punch) and sandwiched cocktail sticks between the layers to enable them to be placed into the cakes.

I hope you have enjoyed this blog post. If you have any questions or comments, please leave them below or email me at helen@papercraftlife.com

Heartfelt Masculine Card

Thank you for joining us for our Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Monthly Team Blog Hop! We are so happy that you could join us today for this blog hop full of ideas and inspiration. We are a group of Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from around the world that are taking part in training that is helping us to build a successful Stampin’ Up! business and reach some goals we have set. We really appreciate your support.

You may be starting here or you may have come from another blog – either way you can find the link list at the bottom of this post so that you can see every blog post and idea today.

Here is the project that I have made for our hop today…

I have used the Stampin’ Up! Heartfelt Stamp Set and coordinating punches to create this masculine Valentine’s Day card.

Let’s make it…

The card base is created from Whisper White Thick cardstock. I then cut a smaller layer of Whisper White cardstock and embossed it using the Corrugated 3D Embossing Folder. Using a Night of Navy Stampin’ Write Marker, I created ‘splatters’ down the left hand side of the card. I think this adds a little extra interest and stops the card from looking too stark.

Using the plain punch (non-scalloped) from the Heart Punch pack, I cut four hearts from 6×6″ Neutrals Designer Series Paper (two each of Sahara Sand and Night of Navy). I then adhered these down the right hand side of the card front.

I wrapped a length of Night of Navy / Sahara Sand Baker’s Twine around the card front and adhered behind using Tear & Tape. The card front was then adhered to the card base.

Finally, I stamped the sentiment in Night of Navy ink onto Sahara Sand cardstock and cut out using the heart punch. This was then adhered using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I think the use of Sahara Sand cardstock rather than Whisper White here gives a more distressed look and helps with the masculine feel of the card.
