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!

Irresistible Baby Feet

Oh my! Is there anything sweeter than tiny, irresistible baby feet? Especially those tiny heels? OMGoodness! I love baby heels so stinkin’ much! Ok…back on track… I love the effect of color resist and the retired Irresistibly Yours paper has designs pre-embossed and ready for color. This was a Sale-a-Bration item in 2015 and it has sheets embossed with 6 different patterns. I love little stars for little boys, so it was a no-brainer. I thoroughly enjoyed making this card and I hope the recipients liked it!

Proud Mosaic Turnabout

I just discovered the stamp company Concord & 9th and their awesome Turnabout stamps. I could never explain them correctly, so I’m just going to give you the link to them:  https://concordand9th.com/collections/turnabouts

This card features the Mosaic Turnabout that I stamped in Blueberry Bushel, Cajun Craze, Early Espresso and Sahara Sand. My friend had shared this photo of birds online and I was inspired by the beautiful colors and just had to make a card with them. And before you comment, yes. I know they are photo-shopped, but it doesn’t matter. Color inspiration can come from anywhere!

Blueberry Cajun Espresso Sand InspirationBlueberry Cajun Espresso Sand
I adore this bold sentiment, which is from the Stampin’ Up Annual catalog set called Friendly Expressions. It is perfect with the Layered Circles Framelits and the Stitched Shapes Framelits and I didn’t feel any other embellishments were necessary. I popped the circle layers up on Dimensionals for added effect. I hope a certain someone living on a certain ship likes it!

Horse Home Décor and Coordinating Card

I have a sweet daughter that loves horses. Imagine my happiness when I spied the new Let It Ride stamp set in the Occasions catalog on page 45. I knew it was perfect for her Birthday card and a home décor piece I’ve been wanting to make for her. I used a 9” x 9” Shadow Box frame I picked up at Michael’s. I love the look of the barn wood from the Holiday Catalog’s Festive Farmhouse DSP and knew it would coordinate perfectly. All of the supplies are Stampin’ Up! except for the horse die (Poppystamps). Her Birthday was yesterday, so I can safely share this with you today. Happy 19th, Hunter Danette!

Golden Wise Men from Illuminated Christmas

I just love the design of the Illuminated Christmas stamp set and knew I wanted to do some embossing with it. The crispness of all the layers of Whisper White add to the clean look. The Vellum is dry embossed with the Sprinkle Embossing Folder and is reminiscent of the cards my mother used to get for me when I was a little girl. The sound of the vellum crinkling is so calming. I just love how the stitching on the new Farmhouse Framelits banner matches the Stitched Shapes Framelits and pulls it together wonderfully. Slight touches of color are achieved perfectly with the Gold Metallic Edge Ribbon and Gold Metallic Pearls. Everything is popped up on dimensionals. I am very pleased with this card.

Exciting Pre-Order Opportunity and Sharing Shimmering Flowers with Friends

My favorite part of this suite is the beautiful Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series Paper. There’s touches of pearlized beauty on these thick sheets and I cannot say enough about them! I kept today’s card simple, with just a touch of ribbon peeking through on the sides of the “friends” die from the Lovely Words Thinlits. I really wanted to emphasize the pearl accents on the paper. Love Love Love! I darkened the color on this photo so that it’s a little easier to see the pearlized flowers.
