Vellum Feathers

 

Today’s feathers were made with So Very Vellum, a FREE Sale-A-Bration item with a qualifying order of $50.00. I cut the feathers, using a Nature’s Thoughts Die, from the three, soft colors, backed them with Whisper White Cardstock, and placed them on Dimensionals.

TIP: Tiny dots of liquid glue behind the vellum dots prevents the glue from showing.

The two, vertical strips, were also made with a Nature’s Thoughts Die, and Whisper White Cardstock.

 

Wow! the Nature’s Thoughts Die Set has it all, because it also has the die I used for the white rectangle. I love the dainty border, don’t you? You can see the complete set in my Product List below.

 

Before gluing the white rectangle to the Purple Posy card base, I stamped the sentiment in Memento Black Ink. “Collect beautiful moments” is from the Beautiful Moments Stamp Set.

A few Iridescent Sequins completed my card.

 

The Paper Player’s sketch was my inspiration.

 

Sale-A-Bration is ending March 31, so be sure to take advantage of the free items while they last. Click here to go to my store and start shopping.

Happy Spring

 

 

Every other week I get to create a card for the Sisterhood of Crafters Design Team, and today is all about “Spring.”

Happy Spring

 

The Peaceful Poppies Designer Paper is wonderful, and I saw this selection as having unusual possibilities. I used a Friendly Silhouettes die to cut the flowers across the top, leaving the green stems and ground at the bottom.

I glued this to Whisper White Cardstock, with a Purple Posy card base.

 

“Happy Easter, Happy Spring, happy, happy everything” is from the Timeless Tulips Stamp Set, stamped in Rich Razzleberry ink. I could have stopped there, but decided to add “spring” using the Hand-Lettered Prose Dies. I cut the letters from another selection of Peaceful Poppies Designer Paper, and layered for thickness.

 

The supplies I used are in my Product List below, so click on the pictures, and have fun shopping. My Host Code gift for the month of March is Pearl Basic Jewels (140 total pearls).  If you order a minimum of $50.00 in March, I will send you the Pearls in April. YAY!

Third Release Sale-A-Bration Products and Birthday Cake

Today’s card features a delicious, paper, cake that has my mouth watering! I will admit, here and now, that I have a sweet tooth. And, if cake is available, I will eat it.

Featuring: Happy Birthday To You Stamp Set, Birthday Dies, Layered Leaves Embossing, Gold Foil, Stampin' Blends; #happy birthdaytoyou #birthdaydies #stampinblends #alcoholmarkers #goldfoill #layeredleavesembossing #handmadecards #handcrafted #diy #cardmaking #papercrafting #cardthemes #cardchallenges

Blue Floral Cake

 

First, I stamped the cake from the Happy Birthday To You Stamp Set in Memento Black Ink on Whisper White Cardstock. Then, I used five Stampin’ Blends, in the colors listed in my Product List, for coloring.

 

Next, I used the Birthday Dies to cut the cake, and its beautiful, Gold Foil cake stand. I glued them together, rounded both with my fingers, and placed them on Foam Adhesive Strips for the 3D effect.

 

The pattern on the left side of the card front was created with Whisper White Cardstock, and the Layered Leaves Embossing Folder. This design was inspired by the Fusion card challenge. You can see why I wanted to color the flowers blue.

 

I glued the four pieces to a layer of Whisper White Cardstock, atop a Thick Whisper White card base.

“It’s your day!” is from the Under My Umbrella Stamp Set, a very versatile sentiment, which is great for weddings, as well as a birthdays. It fit nicely in the smallest, Stitched Shapes, oval die.

 

First, the bad news: the Happy Birthday To You Stamp Set and coordinating dies are no longer available. May my card be an inspiration to those who have the set in their stash, and a reminder to order early, the things you love, because they are only available as long as supplies last.

The good news: if you haven’t taken advantage of Sale-A-Bration, Stampin’ Up! has just released its third, and final, FREE products.

Many of the First and Second Release products are still available, so click on my shop button, and do some “quarantine shopping.”  Thank you! I appreciate you!
