Tranquil Buffalo

Another first inking of a stamp from the Holiday Catalog. This Buffalo Check background stamp is so much fun! It reminds me of all the plaid flannel shirts my dad had. And I’m going to take a brief moment to show one of my favorite photos of my 3 children and my niece. We were visiting my niece and all 4 of them just happened to put on plaid shirts the same day! Kinda scary, huh?

This card is a quick and easy one that will have no problems being sent to a friend in Canada. I try to make cards as flat as possible when sending them outside the U.S. To keep it special, I added some of the silver stars from the Twinkle Adhesive Backed Sequins pack. I love doubling up on the Happy Birthday die cut and having the bottom dark color off-set to look like a shadow.

Cool Treats Birthday Frenzy

I am continuing on with my #cutitdonthoardit pledge with another card using the gorgeous Foil Frenzy Specialty Designer Series Paper. This time, I made several Birthday cards to send out, continuing with another pledge that #imbringingbirthdaysback! The only ink on the front is the ice cream. I decided that it made the Soft Sky a little creamier by stamping it onto Whisper White and die cutting it instead of just simply die cutting Soft Sky cardstock. This turned out to be such a fun card – from the little lattice style embossing on the cone to using the Simply Scored Scoring Tool to add a couple lines to the top and bottom of the 2 ¼” strip of Whisper White. Hunter suggested angling the Happy Birthday die and cone and I must say it turned out great! I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels for added sparkle and they are ready to be dropped in the mail!

The minute I saw the Foil Frenzy Specialty Designer Series Paper in the newest Annual Catalog, I knew I had to have it. The shiny foil accents were all the incentive I needed to hoard it. Well, I say, “No more!” Why keep all this gorgeous paper to myself?  It needs to be shared to bring smiles to others.  I have made a personal pledge to #cutitdonthoardit with all my DSP…join me!
