Swirly Banner Birthday

I decided to make a card with some soon-to-be retired colors. Wisteria Wonder is one that I will truly miss. I thought it would be lovely with the Sweet Sugarplum and I threw in a pop of Wild Wasabi for the leaves. All three of these colors will be joining the crafting world’s great beyond on May 31st. Be sure to stock up on cardstock and ink right away, as it’s while supplies last.

Retiring Painted With Love Suite

I am sad that the Painted With Love suite on pages 18-19 of the Occasions Catalog will be retiring on May 31st. It’s so cheerful and colorful…and can easily be used any time and not just during Valentine’s Day. I made this for a special someone and it came together just how I planned it in my head. The pop of gold hearts on the Specialty Designer Series Paper are accented perfectly with the random heart die cuts. I am very pleased with this one!

Eclectic Threading for SUOC197

I had just been looking through some previous posts and came across this one that I did threading on. I just love the effect. I wanted to feature threading on another card and decided the Stampin’ Up Only Challenge #197 Favorite Florals (SUOC197) would be the perfect opportunity. Their challenge is to use a floral set in the 2017-2018 Annual Catalog. You can visit their page and play along, too!  The card just started flowing along and before I knew it, there wasn’t any actual stamping on it! A sentiment banner saves the day!

Birdhouse Birthday

These little birdhouses are the most darling little things. And the sweet birdie peeking out the window is adorable. I enjoyed coloring this with the Stampin’ Blends alcohol markers. When I finished the focal point, i realized I needed texture in the background. I reached for the Pinewood Planks Dynamic Embossing Folder. The Dynamic folders are designed to leave a deep impression. I chose to run it through the Big Shot on platform 1 with just one acrylic plate on top to give it a softer look. I love it – and it doesn’t detract from the main image. Such a fun card!

Message for Marcus

I had a wonderful time while Marcus was home last week. As always, his time home flies by way too quickly. He should have his new orders around the end of the summer, so that will most likely be the next time I’ll get to see him. I made this card while he was out with friends and slipped it into his Nintendo Switch case for him to find after he arrived back in upstate New York. Goodbyes are never easy.

Blooms Banners and Blends

I am sharing this with Hunter’s permission.  She put together this pretty card that uses the Birthday Blooms flower. She used Pumpkin Pie, Rich Razzleberry and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends to color it in and it is gorgeous! She used sentiments and the leaf sprig from the Banners for You set, which I am not sure I would’ve even thought to pair with the flower, but they look like they could’ve come from the same set. She added quiet dimension by gluing the flower panel down flat, then the strip above is popped up on one layer of Dimensionals and the right side panel is popped up on two layers. I tried to capture a little of the shadow…can you tell? It’s a beautiful card with rich, vibrant colors and perfect for spring. Thank you, Hunter!
