2 Stamping Techniques-Watercoloring and Heat Embossing


You've Got This Stampin' Up!

 

Hello Friends,

Here's another take on the card that I made on Monday.  The focal point has been changed, but it is the same basic card.  For today's card I used the lovely flower from the You've Got This Stamp Set with 2 Stamping Techniques-Watercoloring and Heat Embossing.

You've Got This

About this Card

Love the look of embossing and watercoloring.  To make my Flower, I first heat embossed the whole image (You've Got This Stamp Set) with gold embossing powder onto Shimmery White Card Stock.  Then, I watercolored with Sweet Sugarplum and Old Olive Ink.  What a  gorgeous flower!  I also embossed the splatters (Gorgeous Grunge Stamp Set) and the "You've Got This".

The Soft Sky stamped background is a stamp from the You've Got this stamp set.  And the washi tape isn't washi tape at all.  It's a stamp from the Gorgeous Grunge Stamp set.  Love the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set.  It's the perfect accessory to so many card.  I will be sad to see it go.  It's on the Stampin' Up! Retirement List.

Swirly Bird in a Bow Tie

Swirly Bird Stampin' Up! Card Idea

Hello Friends,

There's a Swirly Bird in a Bow Tie doing the Lemon Lime Twist for today's springy card.  Here in Ohio we have been enjoying some beautiful spring days.  That means sunshine, blue skies, spring flowers and a choir of birds and frogs.  

I have to admit the new Lemon Lime Twist from the 2017-2019 In Colors makes me want to dance.  It's such a bright and cheerful color and it looks fabulous with the Rich Razzleberry and Daffodil Delight.  What do you think?  Great color combo?

Today's Swirly Bird Card reminds me a bit about the go around that we had with some robins last week.  They were determined to build their nest on a light on our porch.  And we were equally determined that our porch was not the best place to build a nest.  They really do leave quite a mess. We went round and around until Joe finally covered the light.  Problem solved.  The robins settled on the lilac bush next to our porch instead.

 The little bow stamp was meant to be bows on the kite (also included in the Swirly Bird Stamp set), but I think that It makes a fabulous bird bow tie too.

If today's card looks familiar, it is.  I made a very similar card last spring showing 3 of last year's new In Colors-Flirty Flaming, Peekaboo Peach and Dapper Denim.  I also shared picture directions for that card. See it Here.

Look Who's Turning 1 Card

  Look Who's Turning 1

  

Hello Friends,

Look Who's Turning 1.  There's something really special about first birthdays.  This First Birthday Card is for our granddaughter, Grace.  Can't believe that she is turning one already.  Such a milestone event as a first birthday calls for a personalized card.  Don't forget to scroll down to see the inside too.  It's almost as cute as the front of the card.

  Here's Grace with her Mommy, Daddy, Brother and Sister.  She's the littlest sister and she's pure sweetness.

Framelit Dies for Today's Card

For a sweetness factor,  I used one of the smallest flowers and a small leaf from the Botanical Builder Framelit Dies rather than the larger bolder flowers. You'll find the Botanical Builder Dies in on the Stampin' Up! Retirement List.  They are 50% off WHILE SUPPLIES LAST.

My all-time favorite heart die is part of the Sunshine Wishes Thinlits Dies.  Love that swirly, whirly heart.

To personalize my First Birthday Card, I cut a 1 using the Large Number Framelit Dies and Flirty Flamingo Card Stock.

Handmade Personalized Birthday Card

The inside of Grace's First Birthday Card is personalized too.  I used the fun striped paper from the Subtles Designer Series Paper Stack.  You may have noticed the same paper lining the envelope and a little snippet of the cute polka dot paper playfully added to the card front.   These wonderful 40 sheet stacks are on the Stampin' Up! Retirement List and will be available WHILE SUPPLIES LAST.

 But back to personalizing Grace's Birthday Card.  The Happy Birthday and the Banner are stamps from the Number of Years stamp set.  I stamped them with Flirty Flamingo Ink then added a bitty flower and leaves cut with the Botanical Builder Framelit dies.  I found the "SWEET" stamp in the Cool Treats stamp set and I spelled out GRACE with the Layered Letters Alphabet stamp set.
