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.

Next time…

I hope you have enjoyed exploring the Stampin’ Up! Birthday Bonanza Suite with me. Join me next time as we take a look at the Come Sail Away Suite (see page 146 of your 2019/2020 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalogue).

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.

Bonanza Buddies Birthday Cards

Welcome to part 2 of my Stampin’ Up! Birthday Bonanza Suite Showcase. If you missed part 1, you can find it here.

This week I really wanted to introduce you to the cute characters in the Stampin’ Up! Bonanza Buddies Stamp Set. With that in mind I decided to create three cards using the same layout but each featuring a different character and sentiment. I hope you like them! Let me know if you have a favourite.

Let’s make them…

For the card bases I have used Terracota Tile (Koala), Coastal Cabana (Lion) and Daffodil Delight (Toucan) cardstock. Each of the main card fronts is created from Whisper White cardstock which has been embossed using the Corrugated 3D Embossing Folder.

I have then trimmed pieces of the Birthday Bonanza DSP diagonally to fit the Whisper White cardstock layer. Wrapped around this is a length of Metallic Baker’s Twine (which can be yours for free with a qualifying spend during Sale-A-Bration). This is adhered at the back of the Whisper White layer using Tear & Tape and the whole piece of adhered to the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

The animals are stamped in: Smoky Slate (Koala); Daffodil Delight and Mango Melody (Lion) and Memento Tuxedo Black (Toucan) inks and cut out using the coordinating Bonanza dies. These are then layered onto cardstock cut out using the 2″ Circle Punch and the Starburst Punch in coordinating colours: Terracota Tile and Daffodil Delight (Koala); Coastal Cabana and Bermuda Bay (Lion) and Mango Melody and Daffodil Delight (Toucan). I then adhered these to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The sentiment pieces have been stamped on Whisper White (Koala and Lion) and Daffodil Delight (Toucan) cardstock in Terracotta Tile (Koala), Coastal Cabana (Lion) and Memento Tuxedo Black (Toucan) ink. The sentiment pieces are cut out using the Stitched Rectangles dies and adhered to the card fronts using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

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

Which of the characters is your favourite? I think mine is the Lion as I love the extra layering for his mane, face and tail!
