Stampin’ Up! Bonanza Buddies Birthday Card

There are some stamp sets that just make me smile when I use them. This card is made with one of them…Bonanza Buddies. The animals are just so stinkin’ cute that you don’t have to be a kid to like them. And who doesn’t love those bright, cheerful colors? Unfortunately, this set is going away so get it now while supplies last. It’s linked below.

The Cuts

  • Terracotta Tile Cardstock: 4 1/4″ x 11″ card base scored at 5 1/2″
  • Bonanza Buddies Designer Series Paper: 5 1/4″ x 4″, 2 banner dies and a 4 1/2″ x 1/2″ strip.
  • Basic Black Cardstock: 5 3/8″ x 4 1/8″, 4 3/8″ x 3 1/8″, 2 banner dies and a hat die. I like the way the black makes the colors pop and yet gives a calm place for the eye to settle.
  • Bermuda Bay Cardstock: 4 1/4″ x 3″
  • Whisper White Cardstock: 4 1/2″ x 3 1/2″, lion dies, 2 hat dies and 2 pom pom dies.

The Creating

  • The lion is stamped in Crushed Curry and Terracotta Tile Ink.
  • The two hats are stamped second generation Terracotta Tile Ink. The front one is the white die stamped with the confetti package. I just wanted to change up the stripe pattern in the hat next to the stripe pattern of the lion mane.
  • The front pom pom is Terracotta Tile Ink and the inside is Crushed Curry Ink (both first generation).
  • The confetti on the Bermuda Bay layer is from So Sentimental (I put the two on the same block) and is stamped tone on tone with Bermuda Bay Ink.
  • The sentiments are Memento Black Ink.
  • The lions head is mounted on a Stampin’ Dimensional. The Mane has two. The tip of the tail has half a Mini Stampin’ Dimensional and the front pom pom has a Mini.
  • All other layering is adhered with Multipurpose Liquid Adhesive. Note: I cut the blue banner in half and positioned around the orange one.
  • I accented with Wink of Stella to the front pom pom and the blue banner.

Stampin’ Up! Watercolor with Painted Poppies and So Sentimental Bundle

I love the layers of color that you get with watercoloring. The inks always break into several shades, mix together for new ones and create lots of interest. It was enlightening to see how the unexpected color elements on this card came together. Enjoy!

The Cutting

  • Pretty Peacock Cardstock: 4 1/4″ x 11″ card base scored at 5 1/2″
  • Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper: Two – 4″ x 5 1/4″
  • Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper: 3 3/4″ x 5″ and Label Die

The Creating

  • I applied water to the watercolor paper with the large aqua painter individually before adding each color ink with the medium aqua painter. This allows you to control the boundaries in which the watercolor will run.
  • I started with Seaside Spray Ink, decided it was a little lighter than I wanted and added a little Night of Navy Ink along the bottom edge. Then the Pretty Peacock Ink and the Mint Macaroon Ink. Just squeeze your Ink Pad in the middle until the pad touches the lid and you have a pallet in your lid to pick up the color with your aqua painter. I recommend you keep a paper towel on hand to dab any extra water from the tip of your painter or from your paper.
  • Once it was completely dry (if not, the ink will run), I stamped the poppy images in Pretty Peacock Ink and the Sentiment on the label.
  • I added Pretty Peacock spatter. I made a watery ink with the medium aqua painter and tapped it against my finger above the paper.
  • I used Multipurpose Liquid Adhesive to attach the layers to the card base. Especially recommended for the Watercolor Paper because it may slightly warp from the water.
  • I popped the label with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • I added three Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels. These are a carry over item so if you don’t have them stay tuned. Note: This was one of the interesting color combos because they are actually listed as Coastal Cabana. The other was the DSP which is listed as Pool Party. Moral: Don’t be afraid to experiment. It works beautifully with watercolor.
  • I used the same DSP on the inside with a poppy stamped on the corner. I didn’t add a sentiment because I often find I just need a notecard these days to touch base (without a special occasion) or a sentiment can be added when the card is purposed. Black ink should be easily visible on this light “watercolored” design.
