Stampin’ Up! Marquee Messages for the Happy Stampers Blog Hop

HappyStampersBlogPostBannerI used the Stampin’ Up! Marquee Messages stamp set from the upcoming 2016-17 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog to create my card for the Happy Stampers blog hop.  We got this stamp set at the OnStage Live Event that we attended last week!

We’ve got a color challenge to play along with this week and this is what I created for it:

Marquee Messages - Stamp With Amy K

Here are the colors that we’re playing along with this week:

Apr 21

I started by embossing a panel of Whisper White card stock with the Brick Wall Embossing Folder.  I inked my Brayer with Soft Suede ink, rolled it across scrap paper a few times to lighten the ink, then gently rolled it across the embossed panel.  I adhered the embossed panel to a panel of Soft Suede card stock with SNAIL, then to a Pool Party card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Marquee Messages 1 - Stamp With Amy K

I stamped the frame images and Birthday sentiment from the Marquee Messages photopolymer stamp set (available June 1) on panels of Pool Party, Mossy Meadow and Soft Suede card stocks.  I cut the images out with my Paper Snips, then adhered them together with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Marquee Messages 3 - Stamp With Amy K

I stamped the “It’s Your” sentiment from the Marquee Messages stamp set in Mossy Meadow ink inside the frame, then adhered the layered frame to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Marquee Messages 2 - Stamp With Amy K

I stamped the star image from the Marquee Messages stamp set on the back of a panel of Gold Glimmer paper and snipped them out.  I adhered them to the card front with Multipurpose Liquid Glue to finish the card front.

Remembering Your Birthday - Stamp With Amy K

I stamped the sentiments from the Remembering Your Birthday stamp set in Soft Suede ink and the stars from the Marquee Messages stamp set in Pool Party ink on a Whisper White panel inside the card.
