Genuine Gems and Be Mine Stitched Dies

I love stamp sets that are filled with sentiments.  I pulled in the Be Mine Stitched Dies to show off the pretty “I love you” stamp.  I also still had the Shimmer Paint mixed us in my spritzer so I covered the embossed panel with it again.  I love that stuff!

Genuine Gems

For this card I pulled in the new Mosaic Mood Specialty Designer Series Paper.  One side of the sheets have and embossed look, you can see the shiny spots in the photo.   The phrase is in the largest stitched square so I used the stitched rectangles to create the mat.  I die cut the rectangle and then I moved the die cut to create a square and ran it through again.

I used the stitched rectangle dies to create the flags on the card.  To get the stitching along the banner cut out, die cut using only the corner of the rectangle.

Free as a Bird, Card #2

I had completely forgotten about the Shimmer Paint.  It’s been sitting on my craft table but got shoved into a corner.  I really like how the Frost White Shimmer Paint looks on Blackberry Bliss cardstock (I pretty much like everything in Blackberry Bliss).   I don’t think the shimmer effect comes through quite as much in the photo as in real life.

I’m once again using the Free as a Bird stamp set but this time I didn’t use a bird image.  I stamped the leaves twice in Tuxedo Black Memento and colored them in using the Light Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Blend.  The flower is colored using both Rich Razzleberry Stampin’ Blends along with the Color Lifter then cut out and popped up.  It’s also time to order some more tulle ribbon because I only have a couple of inches left now.

Free as a Bird, Card #1

This card may seem familiar because I made a card a couple weeks ago using the same colors and layout.  I just loved the colors and layout so I decided to recreate it with current products, unfortunately I completely forgot the Woodland Embossing Folder this time.  The ribbon is the Silver Edged Metallic and is colored using the Dark Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends marker.  I love how white ribbons can be colored to match any of our colors.

It’s New Catalog Day!

Today at Noon (MT) the new Stampin’ Up! Catalog goes LIVE!  I’m so excited to place my order!

I made this card for a new catalog swap over the weekend using a new bundle available today.  I’ll post the cards I received in return on Thursday.

The new Purple Posy color wasn’t available to order, so I didn’t get any of the ink pads only the refills since I want to get the bundle discount.  I used the ink refills to watercolor my card.  The background is Seaside Spray, the birds are Rococo Rose, the leaves and majority of the cardstock is Pretty Peacock, and the branch is Crumb Cake.

Say Goodbye to Incredible Like You

I will miss this set, I really like the fonts and the sentiments in this set.  I added rose thread behind the flower, you can see it better in the second photo.
