Butterfly Birthday

Hello once again! I have been saving this card to post. It was made for my youngest daughter on her 21st birthday. I created it after another card I had made before. It was one of my favorites. You can see it here.

For this card real red cardstock, basic black cardstock, and first edition specialty designer series paper were used. The stamp set used was happiest birthday wishes. The tools used were the big shot, beautiful butterflies bigz die, beautiful wings embosslit die, elegant lines and vintage wallpaper embossing folders, and the scallop trim border punch. For accessories rhinestone jewels and a filigree designer brad were used.

Thanks so much for stopping by. You can always leave a comment if you would like. :-)

Now go-n-stamp!!

Always Thankful Card Class

Hello. I have some new cards to share with you. These will be made in my Always Thankful Card Class. I still have one more to get finished. I have it started, but have not had much time to work on it because of working at my other job.

These cards are all made with the Always Thankful stamp set, which can be found in the Holiday Mini Catalog here. I also used Spice Cake Designer Series Paper. It too is in the Holiday Mini Catalog.
In case you are wondering..........I did not color in the images because I knew it would take a while for my customers to get their cards made. If I colored in the images, they would be at my house even longer. I did not want to do that to them. They can color them on their own time.

The only thing I did to the last card that you see to give it more detail than just using the more mustard classic ink I used a soft suede stampin' write marker to outline and add some little lines for detail.
I am sure these would look so much better if they were colored in though. If I have some time I may do that and repost them if I can.

Thank you for coming to my blog and taking a look. Cardmaking is very easy with rubberstamping. My saying is this: If you can color, you can stamp! Why do I say that? Rubberstamping is just stamping an image on paper and coloring it in. When you color you already have the image you just color it in. Not much different.

Autumn Spice Birthday

I don't know about you, but I have a lot of designer series paper that is now retired. I need to figure out what to do with it. I know I can make things, which that is what I did with the card you see below here. I may give some away to my customers as gifts. I have to think on it.

The card I made is using Autumn Spice DSP, which is now retired. The cardstock colors used were more mustard, cajun craze, and very vanilla. I finally used the blossom bouquet triple layer punch, along with the 1 3/4" inch scallop circle punch. Of course, I had to use my Big Shot! That is how I got the layered paper in the background along with the vintage wallpaper embossing folder. The stamp set I used was the Happiest Birthday Wishes hostess set. For accessories I added very vanilla taffeta ribbon and an old olive brad.

It is nice being able to bring out old paper once in a while. A lot of the retired papers are beautiful and you wish they would keep them longer sometimes. I know things are always changing though and Stampin' Up! really tries to keep up with the newest trends in colors. They have too.

Enjoy your day. It is beautiful out where I live. I hope you enjoyed visiting my blog. If so, please take a minute to leave a comment. Thanks!!
