Stampin’ Up! Amazing Life Sneak Peek for the Greek Isles Achievers Blog Hop

Welcome to the Greek Isles Incentive Trip Achievers Blog Hop for November 2018! Our theme is “anything goes”.  We have so many amazing ideas for using your Stampin’ Up! products and want to make sure you get to see them so that you can get some ideas on how to use your awesome products!

You may just be starting the blog hop here at my blog or may have come from the person previous to me in the list. If you get off track at any time, the full lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all the projects.  At the moment you are visiting Amy Koenders in Atlanta, GA USA.

Here is the project that I am sharing with you today.  I used the Amazing Life stamp set from the upcoming 2019 Occasions Catalog to create a fun birthday card…I used the pieces from the “take & make” project kit that we got at OnStage to create my card!

I started by stamping the sentiment from the Amazing Life photopolymer stamp set (available Jan 3) randomly across a panel of Whisper White card stock in Sahara Sand ink.  I adhered the stamped panel to the front of a Thick Whisper White card base with SNAIL.

I stamped the cake image from the Amazing Life stamp set in Sahara Sand ink on a panel of Whisper White card stock and then inked, stamped off and then stamped the dot image from that stamp set around it in Sahara Sand ink.  I used my Light Blackberry Bliss, Old Olive and Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends Markers and then the Color Lifter to color the cake and candle image.

I cut the cake out with a Stitched Shapes Framelits Die and then adhered it with SNAIL to a scalloped circle cut from Blackberry Bliss card stock with a Layering Circles Framelits die.  I wrapped a strand of Old Olive Linen Thread (available Jan 3) around the die cut circle and tied a  bow, then adhered the circle to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added three Metallic Pearls to finish the card front.

I stamped the sentiment from the Amazing Life stamp set in Sahara Sand ink and then colored the “cake” with my Light Blackberry Bliss and Color Lifter Stampin’ Blends Markers on a Whisper White card stock panel on the inside of the card.
