Masculine Birthday Wit

Masculine cards are sometimes difficult to create, but this one was a breeze.  Just a simple very vanilla thick card stock base, with a night of navy embossed layer (embossed with the Simple Stripes Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder), and layered with True Gentleman Designer Series Paper (name alone says masculine).  The sentiment makes me laugh which is from the stamp set Birthday Wit.

Lots of Lavender

This has been one of the best Sale-A-Bration years ever! This stamp set is called Lots of Lavender. 
There are stamps within the set to fill in the images, but on this card I just colored everything with markers.  The colors are black, berry burst and crumb cake.  The markers I used are wisteria wonder, pear pizzaz and berry burst.  The sentiment is actually from a different SAB set called Heartfelt Blooms.

Waterfront Here For You

We had a good laugh over this card at class the other night.  With the sentiment "I'm here for you", some of the ladies thought the the tiny building was an outhouse, not a cabin, and it was waiting for them to use.  Needless to say, that table of ladies did not stamp the "cabin" onto to card.  They couldn't figure out why there would be such a tiny cabin in the middle of the woods like that.  They must be city girls. LOL.

I love this Waterfront stamp set.  It was so easy to create this scene, and there are so many other possibilities.  The colors used are marina mist for the water, old olive for the grass, crumb cake for the mountains, tranquil tide for the pine trees, and the sun is daffodil delight.  The Simple Stripes Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder placed on an angle provides an interesting frame for the card.

Heartfelt Blooms in Color

The Heartfelt Blooms stamp is one of my favorite Sale-a-bration stamps.  The new Stampin' Up! "Distinktive" stamp lays down the ink at different opacities giving the finished image more depth—just ink the surface lightly for a perfect photographic finish.  On this card I stamped the image with soft suede, then used the Stampin' Blends to color it in.  The "white" daisies are actually colored with light smoky slate, then color removed with the color lifter.  The centers of the daisies are daffodil delight and highlighted with wink of stella.  The orange flowers are colored with light pumpkin pie and the are colored with both the light and dark of the old olive.


You can get this stamp FREE with a $50 Stampin' Up! product purchase.  My Stampin' Up! project supply list is below.  Interested in an item (or two or three)?  Just click the items below and order online.
