Fashionably Late Birthday Card

Let’s admit it. We’ve all done it. We’ve all had a moment where we realized that someone’s Birthday just happened and we forgot about it. Just because you forgot to give a card by their Birthday doesn’t mean you can’t send them belated well-wishes. This card is fun to color and I added Wink of Stella for a glittery effect that will still make them smile…even if it is a day or three late.

Gather Together for a Harvest Hello Sneak Peek

Welcome to my happy place! I adore all things fall – sweater weather, pumpkins, Halloween movies, Thanksgiving, all the vibrant colors of the falling leaves. If Michigan could be submersed in autumn all year long, I would be such a happy person!  I am thrilled to share a sneak peek from the 2019 Holiday catalog that features two Harvest-themed sets plus an awesome Apple Builder punch that does double-duty as both an apple and a pumpkin!

I started this card by layering a couple of the Stitched Rectangles to make a frame. When I popped it up with foam tape, I made sure to leave a small space for the twine so there wouldn’t be a bump from the thickness of the twine. I stamped the sentiment directly onto the card front and the pumpkin and stem are stamped and punched out, while I fussy-cut the leaf. The pumpkin is popped up on Dimensionals. I finished off the front by using my bone folder to curl the twine the same way you use scissors to curl ribbon. Love it!

Back On Your Feet Trio – Card 3

Today’s card features the sad, upside down turtle from the Back On Your Feet stamp set on page 83 of the Annual Catalog. Yesterday’s card featured a poor little sloth, which you can see here. Card 1 from two days ago is a giraffe tied in a knot. You can see that card here. I can commiserate with this little turtle. Sometimes we get turned upside down and all we can do is SIGH. He’s stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored in with Stampin’ Blends. I thought the Arrows Embossing Folder was a good match for this card. I love the greens and browns together and enjoyed dusting off some retired Always Artichoke cardstock and ink and a super old roll of Old Olive ribbon.

Back On Your Feet Trio – Card 2

Today’s card features the poor little sloth from the Back On Your Feet stamp set on page 83 of the Annual Catalog. Yesterday’s card featured a giraffe tied in a knot. You can see that card here. Tomorrow’s card will have the upside down turtle. This sad, hurt little sloth can’t make it out of his little tree. Poor thing! He’s stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored in with Stampin’ Blends. The Layered Leaves Dynamic Embossing Folder is embossed on the Old Olive layer. It coordinates perfectly with the leaves on the stamp as well as the wooden leaves from the Sale-a-Bration Butterfly Elements that were available at the beginning of this year.

Back On Your Feet Trio – Card 1

Who doesn’t love a sweet card when you’re feeling down, under the weather, or have an owie? The Back On Your Feet stamp set on page 83 of the Annual Catalog fits almost any situation. There’s a tied up giraffe, hurt sloth and upside down turtle. I’ll be sharing cards made with the sloth and turtle in the next two days, but for now, here’s the poor little giraffe. He’s stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored in with Stampin’ Blends. I thought it would be cute to add the braided linen trim to correlate to the knot. It’s difficult to see in the photo, but I also used the Subtle Embossing Folder on the black layer. Just look at that face – so sad! This could definitely cheer someone up!

Wink To My Person

As soon as I laid my eyes upon the beautiful, new Modern Heart set on page 51 of the Annual Catalog, I knew I had to have it. The sentiment “You’re My Person” is totally something I would tell the special someone I was thinking of when I bought this set. I stamped the heart in Memento Tuxedo Black so I could color it with a rainbow of Stampin’ Blends. After coloring it in, I covered it in sparkly Wink of Stella. The Stitched Shapes square die I cut it out with is a great little touch and the bright Bermuda Bay Designer Series Paper and Mini Striped Ribbon are the perfect amount of boldness. I added the sequins knowing my person doesn’t really care for sequins all that much, but I liked them being white so they would take backstage to the heart. The inside sentiment is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black and I added a ½” strip of the DSP along the bottom. The card base is 4 ¼” square and is the perfect size for this fun heart. I think my person will like it!
