Happy Birthday - Blow Out The Candles

This card is super simple to make. I used some Share What You Love and Regals DSP to highlight the birthday banner. To make the candy cane look of the striped DSP, just cut it on an angle!




I stamped the balloon onto the So Saffron cardstock using the same color ink on the balloon stamp and used some of the colors in the Share What You Love paper to make the cake.

The Happy Birthday banner is Old Olive. I inked the stamp and just stamped it three times to make the stamp look like its fading. I love that our ink is actually three different colors depending on how many times you "stamp off."

I hope you like this card. Please leave me a comment below to let me know, or just to say "Hi!"

Thank you for stopping by. Have a great day, and Happy Stampin!

Thankful for You - Many Blessings

I think fall cards are beautiful in general (even though it's now finally spring). Maybe it's the color palette? I'm not sure, but I do love the colors of this card.




I designed this card for one of my card classes using the Many Blessings stamp set in the 2018-2019 Annual Catalog. I ran copper foil through the big shot using the Swirls & Curls Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, and I love the way it came out with an antiqued look to it.

I used a mixture of Stampin Blends and Stampin Markers to color in the flower pot. I still haven't mastered the blends technique, but practice makes perfect!

I hope you like this card. Please leave me a comment below to let me know, or just to say "Hi!"

Get Well - Healing Hugs

I was needing a card for one of my card classes and I was having a card block. It's like writers block but for card-designing. So I reached for the catalog and found this card in the current 2018-2019 Annual Catalog on page 110 to CASE - fancy word for copy.




I made it my own with the colors I chose and added a few details like inking up the Sparkle embossing folder. Most of the colors I chose for this card are new this year, and I really like the way they coordinate together.

I hope you like this card. Please leave me a comment below to let me know, or just to say "Hi!"
