Mambo Frost Card



I wanted a bright and cheery card for the recipient
to hopefully brighten her birthday. It's been so cloudy and gloomy
here lately on top of the pandemic and political stuff going on.
I custom printed this saying for the inside:

Sending your way
a bouquet of happiness
to wish you a very
Happy Birthday!



Everything used (other than the polka dot ribbon)
 came from Stampin' Up!
Most items are no longer available.

First First Frost Card




 
This is the first of five cards I made with the 
new to me First Frost stamp and die set
 by Stampin' Up! (retired)
I'll post one card each day over the next couple of weeks.

My daughter gave it to me for Christmas. 
Although I have oodles of cards already made,
I just had to play with this pretty set :) 

All supplies used 
were bought from Stampin' Up! over the years.
Most are no longer available.

 


Colors:
Primrose Petals, Sage Shadow, Pistachio Pudding




I'm impressed with the way the flowers 
inked up and stamped. They look just like this, 
a multi-tonal water colored sort of look, 
by simply stamping on a single color ink pad. 


Other Supplies:
sentiment from Floral Frames
3D Tufted Embossing Folder
sequins
dimensionals


Thanks for looking =) 


This card was chosen as a CAS Favorite at 
Splitcoaststampers !

You Warm My Heart Card




My first card of 2021!


I received this sweet stamp image as a Christmas gift
and just had to put her to use for a Thank You card 
to mail to the gift giver :) 
Snow Day by Pure Innocence for My Favorite Things.

For the top stitched edge panel 
I moved the piece of card stock after running
it though the stitched edge die. It was shorter 
than the die. After I ran it through, I moved 
the card stock down to the bottom edge and
ran it through again. Sometimes this technique
works really well as it did on this card and 
other times the stitches don't line up so well. 


I water colored the image with inks from my Classic 
Stampin' Up! dye ink pads using an aqua painter.   

I added a little bit of Stickles diamonds glitter glue
to the snowballs.

The snow covered background was die cut and stamped
with old supplies from Stampin' Up!  
I used shimmer paper for the ground. 

The colors are also from SU!
Baja Breeze, Pink Pirouette, Almost Amethyst

The teeny tiny snowflake is actually the part 
cut out from a border edge punch. 
Rhinestone center.
