Amazingly Sweet Birthday

Oh My Goodness! This card is so sweet, I need to brush my teeth! The Designer Series Paper on this card is from the How Sweet It Is Suite on pages 14-15 of the 2019 Occasions Catalog. This particular striped piece was the complete inspiration for this card. I don’t have the matching stamp set and dies yet, but the stamp set Incredible Like You has a whimsical style that pairs great with the colorful paper.  It is so easy to line up the flower layers for detailed two-step stamping. I can’t wait for you to be able to get your hands on this stamp set and paper…they will both be available on January 3, 2019!

Frosted Healing Hugs

I had debated back and forth about the Frosted Floral suite in the Holiday Catalog on pages 36 – 37. It is so pretty. But I have so many flower stamp sets already. But it is so pretty. Oh boy…this is how my mind works, people. After seeing so many beautiful samples online, I decided I simply had to have it. And by that, I mean the entire suite. Because no one wants regrets once it’s too late, right?  So here we have a pretty, bright cheerful Get Well card. The sentiments from the Healing Hugs set are perfect. I love the font with the flowers. And does the Frosted Floral Specialty Designer Series Paper look a little…uh…fuzzy and frosty in the photo? That’s because there is a shimmer beyond gorgeous on it that the camera cannot do justice to!

Coastal Bay & Gorgeous Heather Dandelion Birthday Wishes

I decided to take a small break from the Holiday catalog to make some Birthday cards. This is such a great card – easy to put together and I love the monochromatic colors – it makes it so vibrant.  I am also addicted to using Stampin’ Blends on the Basic Jewels to color them the perfect shade. To achieve the Gorgeous Grape shade on the Rhinestones, first I colored them with Dark Blackberry Bliss then topped them with Light Bermuda Bay. Perfect!

Stained Glass Duo

The Graceful Glass Suite is so eye-catching. The stained glass look is so gothic and regal – especially when you use the Stampin’ Blends alcohol markers to color the vellum.

Here is a card with a layout I cased from a sample featured in the Demonstrator magazine called Stampin’ Success. The tone-on-tone of layering an embossed piece of cardstock onto the same color card base is so classy here. I just love it!

Stained Glass Thank You
Stamp Set:  Painted Glass
Cardstock:  Coastal Cabana, Whisper White
Specialty Paper:  Graceful Glass Vellum
Ink:  Old Olive
Stampin’ Blends: Bermuda Bay, Crumb Cake, Old Olive, Pool Party
Lovelies:  3/8” Pear Pizzazz Shimmer Ribbon
Tools:  Simple Stripes Embossing Folder, Petals & More Thinlits, Big Shot, Magnetic Platform

For the bookmark, I first mounted the Graceful Glass Vellum onto Whisper White. It didn’t look right because I colored the frame of the vellum in Light Crumb Cake. I carefully removed it and tried it on Very Vanilla instead. It was perfect! I’m definitely liking this much better. The Detailed Trio Punch made the bookmark shape a breeze.

Say Goodbye to the Purple Monkeys!

My stepdaughter Shanice asked me to make cards for her children’s teachers. She requested purple monkeys with glitter – hilarious! I had so much fun making these cards. I am sad to see all 3 of these stamp sets retire in 2 days. I decided to go with a lighter shade of purple to coordinate effortlessly with the retired 2013-2015 In Colors. I like to call them the “Ice Cream Colors”. So yummy!  Look closely and you will see the Dazzling Diamonds glitter on each little monkey’s tummy.  So darling! I hope Shanice agrees!

Hunter Thinks I’m Sweet!

This year for my Birthday, sweet Hunter Danette

Hunter

made me a set of 13 cards. I wanted to showcase this one today because it uses what would typically be considered a Valentine’s stamp set.  We show our love 364 other days of the year, too, so why keep this cute set confined to just one day?  Nice job, Hunter!

Lovely Amazing Hunter

I wanted to make a sweet card for my sweet Hunter.  Everything “mini” is automatically cuter, so I chose Whisper White Notecards, which are 5″ x 3.5″.  I knew I wanted to use the brand new set Lovely Amazing You.  Stampin’ Up! just released this photopolymer set and it’s a huge hit – better get it while supplies last!  I also took advantage of a couple Sale-A-Bration items on this card.  Best Year Ever Designer Series Paper is perfectly happy as both the background of the card as well as the envelope liner.  Best Year Ever Accessory Pack comes with both 3 colors of ribbon as well as 2 sizes of 3 colors each for the buttons.  The Calypso Coral button adds a great splash of color.  Punches make this card super easy and fun!
