Special Delivery

Today my Stampin’ Up! Order arrived.  I’m beyond excited.  I decided to try and have a calm focus and use one suite at a time while incorporating other product with it. For the past 23 years when my BIG order arrives I go nuts, I try this I try that I make a mess here and I make a mess there.  This time I’m putting things away as I finish with them, I’m labeling everything and I’m staying focused.  I better take my temperature, I must be ill.

I wanted to show you a close up of this card.  I want you to notice a few things.

One, I embossed the Happy Birthday Thinlet Image using Versamark Ink, clear embossing powder and a heat tool.  I LOVE the shine the embossing powder creates.  The whole images looks shiny and glossy, it’s awesome.

Two I cut off the letters BIRTH from the word Birthday.  I wanted this card to say HAPPY DAY not HAPPY BIRTHDAY.  Isn’t that cool?

Next notice the perfect cake.  The image is perfect because it is cut from the suites DSP using the coordinating thinlets.  I used the stitched framelits too, those framelits work with everything.

What do you think about that gingham ribbon?   I’m all about gingham, I just love it! It comes in navy and grey.  it’s so pretty.

Now lets talk about the ruffle background.  I’m so jazzed about ruffles.  Ruffles make everything darling. Now I can dry emboss ruffles onto my card stock and really add a lot of texture.

This suite makes me happy, it truely is a happy day.

A special Birthday

Today I’m making some birthday cards and a sympathy card.  All of the cards I made today are my signature white cards with a touch of color.  Here is one of the birthday cards.

Again I’ve used the score board to add texture to the layer piece of card stock and the envelope flap.

Copper embossing powder outlines the beautiful rose image and the sentiment.  Notice the ballon, to create this look I stamped the rose image onto the out line balloon stamp, isn’t it gorgeous?  Instead of using string on the ballon I used ribbon, it’s so much prettier.

Aqua-painters allowed me to color the rose and leaves very lightly, which makes the image so so soft.

This card is for a very dear friends birthday. So it had to be special.

A matching envelope makes the stationary complete.

I hope you enjoyed this post, I enjoyed sharing.

I’m a rooster girl however there is another stamp in this set that I think I may use even more than the rooster.  It’s the dainty floral stamp.  I’ve been stamping the floral stamp numerous times to create backgrounds and boarders.

I also used the Simply Scored board again.  I love to create the lined texture onto card stock.  It adds so much and just takes a minute with this tool.  I layered the scored card stock piece directly onto the card base using dimensionals.  With two backgrounds finished I decided I needed one more to go in-between the other two.  So I used the Watercolor Wash background stamp and crumb cake ink onto crumb cake card stock to add a bit more interest and flat texture.

The rooster in the corner grabs attention with the little scallop square cut out that it’s stamped on.  A Gold Faceted Gem creates shimmer and a touch of elegance.  I then layered the focal point onto a simple cherry cobbler square and layered it all onto a mound of lace, burlap and linen thread.

Stamping the floral stamp image onto the flap of my whisper white envelope completed the stationary.  I’m happy with the French country, farm house style look that these products allowed me to create.

I love the colors, texture and images on this card, it’s just so sweet.  This card will be at the Wine and Roses event in the Wood Words stamp set and Crate display.  We have ONE spot available!
