Free as a Bird — Friendship Card

Free as a Bird Friendship Card

How can you not love these adorable birds from the Free as a Bird stamp set from Stampin’ Up!? The new Stitched Nested Labels die I used on the Gorgeous Grape cardstock helps highlight the bird images. LOVE them!

You can find the Free as a Bird stamp set and Stitched Nested Labels Dies in the Stampin’ Up! 2019-2020 Annual Catalog. Check them out in My Online Store.  

Free as a Bird Friendship Card

I colored the images with Watercolor Pencils and blended the colors with the Blender Pens. Watch my video below to learn this easy coloring technique. Using the Layered Leaves embossing folder evokes the image of birds in a tree. Now, if only the Clear Wink of Stella that I used would show in my photo.

Do you hate to fussy cut? I know many of my friends do. So, I’ve created an alternate card for you.

Painted Glass — Happy Birthday Card

Happy Birthday card showcasing Painted Glass stamp set from Stampin' Up!

Wanting to create a stunning Happy Birthday card I used the Painted Glass stamp set from Stampin’ Up! I think the Painted Glass stamp set is so beautiful. The classic stained glass images are timeless and so versatile. You will find the Painted Glass stamp set and Stained Glass Thinlits Bundle in the Stampin’ Up! 2018-2019 Annual Catalog, check it out in My Online Store here. You will also find the coordinating Graceful Glass 6″ x 6″ Designer Vellum in My Online Store here.

My card design was inspired by Dawn Griffith 

 

My card partially opened:

I love how the front of the card covers the “Have a Beautiful Birthday” sentiment. But, you can open the card all the way allowing you to write more to the recipient.  Also, notice how the stained glass bird helps to hold the front of the card closed. I think that the new Gorgeous Grape is one of my favorite colors and doesn’t the Garden Trellis embossing folder add just the right touch to the overall appeal of the card?

My Birthday card fully opened:

Of course, I have added the Clear Wink of Stella to the Highland Heather areas of the stained glass window.  But, when have you known me not to use the Wink of Stella!

I hope you will give this Happy Birthday card using the Painted Glass Bundle from Stampin’ Up! a try. I know your recipient will LOVE it!!

His Light — Christmas Card

I love creating Christmas Cards. I decided to make a card celebrating the birth of Christ and how we should feel because of His birth. I am very happy with how this card turned out and am pleased how the simple sentiment “Rejoice” brings everything into focus.

Rooted in Nature — Masculine Card

Happy Thursday, Stampers

For some reason, many of us find it difficult to create masculine cards.  Well, I am happy to help with that struggle. This quick and easy card is perfect.  I hope you will create one for that special man in your life.  I really like the texture the Burlap Ribbon and Pinewood Planks Embossing Folder provide.  Those little touches can add a lot to a card!

Change the sentiment and this card is great for any occasion.

The Pinewood Planks embossing folder provides a great background to the tree. As you can see, I lightly rubbed the embossed cardstock with Soft Suede ink and a sponge dauber.  That helps bring out the texture and helps the die cut tree to “pop”.
