Hello Stampin’ Friends ~
So … what do you think of my catchy little title? Let me explain “tee” comes not from the drink but from the “Designer Tee” stamp set that I used to create the cards. And … the Party Animal is the name of the designer series paper that I used on my cards!
Today I have two cards for you, both using the “Designer Tee” stamp set and the Party Animal designer series paper. I hope you had a chance to watch the video yesterday and see how much fun you can have creating with the “Custom Tee Bundle”.
My first card began with the thought of using the stamp with the cake, then I remembered that I had some designer paper that had cake on it!! Love that Stampin’ Up! is always coordinating there products. Once I had my designer paper … that helped me with my color pallet.
The greeting / cake is stamped in Tangelo Tango just like the cake on the designer paper. My card base is Crumb Cake … just like the forks, and then the banners and mat for my greeting was done is Emerald Envy and Pacific Point to pull in the colors of the candles.
I used two punches on this card, the tag punch (Discontinued/ I really need to pull them out of my drawer) and the Best Badge. It is the Best Badge punch that I used to create my cool banner bottoms. I pulled my cardstock through the front and up (outside) of the punch.
The second card is just a whole lot of fun and so easy to do!! Again I used the Party Animal designer series paper … love those little dots!! So what better stamp to go with my designer paper than one with a smiley face! The smiley is done in Crushed Curry – the same as the base of my card, and the words in Pacific Point.
The circles were punched from Crushed Curry, Pacific Point and Emerald Envy. The punches I used were the 1/2″, the 3/4″, the 1-3/8″ and the 1-3/4″. I love my punches and my dies but sometimes it’s just better to be able to punch, punch, punch!
Two of the circled were mounted directly to the designer paper, and the other three along with the greeting were all popped up using the Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I hope you enjoyed these alternative cards to the ones you saw in the video. I love showing you different ways to use your products … it’s much more cost effective (and fun!).
Have a wonderful weekend, and I’ll see you tomorrow with my Simply Sunday post.
