You Make the World a Better Place

I’m playing with some more of my new toys. I pulled out the Old World Paper 3D embossing folder and the Beautiful World bundle along with Cinnamon Cider to create this card.

I embossed the front of my card with the Old World Paper 3D embossing folder. I tore off about 3/4″ from the right edged and then inked the edge with a sponge and Cinnamon Cider ink. I also lightly rubbed the front of the card with the sponge and Cinnamon Cider ink to pull out some of the details. I embossed the quill in gold but I think I really need a brass embossing powder to match the patterned paper.

I’m playing along with TGIF Challenges #TGIFC268.

Say Goodbye to Birthday Delivery

I got the Birthday Delivery stamp set at OnStage in April 2017 and I thought it was just so cute for kids cards.  I’ve got to say the paper ended up being a little busier that I normally like to use so much of it is still waiting for me to cut up.

I popped up all the balloons and greeting on Stampin’ Dimensionals.

#TGIFC153 Bonus Week Challenge

Today I’m playing along with the TGIF Challenge and I knew exactly which card I was going to CASE!  I’d seen it on the Demonstrator Planning Place Facebook group earlier and LOVED IT!  Stesha used the Springtime Florals DSP from Sale-a-Bration which I sadly didn’t get but that gave me the opportunity to try and recreate it using current Stampin’ Up! supplies.

This Little Piggy…says goodbye for now

Okay, okay, this is the last “This Little Piggy” post for the foreseeable future.  I just wanted to use all the images.

My new catalog order arrived today so guess what I got to use?  Yep, that’s right, Whole Lot of Lovely Designer Series Paper.  So this isn’t one of the patterns I drool over but I thought it went well with my badly watercolor-ed little piggy.  Under the Whisper White baker’s twine you can see a hint of Basic Gray marker that I used to color in the hooves.  I didn’t like it so I pulled out a threader (you should really have one of these) and fed the baker’s twine through to kind of cover it up.
