I’m not lacking examples using this card but I did want to show one last card…well two cards but neither really worked the way I wanted them to. I have issues with shaker cards, things always stick to the acetate no matter what I rub across it. Maybe if I actually use the Stampin’ Up! window sheets it would go better but I have this pile of acetate scraps that I’ve saved from who knows what that I keep using and the shaker items always start sticking. I thought the original layout was really cute, now if I just hadn’t put glitter in there. 🙂 The stars are from the retired Confetti Stars Border which is no longer available, the Confetti Hearts Border is currently on the clearance rack and would work as well.
The second layout I used a foam adhesive circle leftover from a past Paper Pumpkin kit and some shaker elements my kids gave me years ago that I haven’t used.
I like the bigger circle better but I was trying to fit into the adhesive circle I had already.
A Mother’s Flair, I haven’t know you for very long but I love the sentiments in your set. I think some of the sentiments can be used for other than Mother’s Day. I paired the stamp set with the Petal Garden Designer Series Paper Stack. I also used up my last two delicate doilies, *sniff*, they are all sold out too.
Yesterday was my anniversary and I made this card for my hubby. I thought the images kind of looked like they were carved into the tree. I used my Stamparatus so I could double heat emboss the image. I stamped it once with Versamark and heat embossed with copper, then I stamped it again and repeated the heat embossing.
I was shocked when Sprinkles of Life transitioned from a Ronald McDonald House Charities stamp set into the main part of the catalog but I was also thrilled because that meant I got to play with it longer. My card is based on this card by Chiaki Haverstick.
I’ll admit that I have a love/hate relationship with Rose Wonder. I LOVE the sentiments in this set but I don’t like any of the cards I’ve made with the rose as the focus. I’m just not a very accomplished colorist. For this card, I focused on the little flower and made my own patterned paper.
I decided to try the “Impossible Card” that everyone seems to be making. I followed Dawn Griffith’s instructions and I think it turned out really well. The only problem I have is that I was creating it for my son’s birthday this summer…my son turns 11 this summer. *sigh* I could only laugh. Well, it was a really rough first year… 🙂
Notice the Butterfly Basics cameo? I will miss that stamp.
Sometimes you need a sympathy or a get well card and I just love the sentiments in the Here for You set. I created this card for the son of Rachel, one of my Stampin’ Up! uplines. Since this stamp set is entirely sentiments, I’m also showcasing the retiring Naturally Eclectic Designer Series Paper.
The inside isn’t fancy but it uses the other half of the sentiment.
