Lift Me Up Bundle by Stampin' Up!

 

There is just over a week left to get your free Sale-a-bration items.

And one of my faves is the Carried Away Designer Series Paper (item 143608) which looks so good with the Lift Me Up Stamp Set and Up & Away Thinlits Dies

Bonus! Save 10% with the purchase of the stamp set and thinlits as a Bundle.

 

This card came together quickly because the thinlits do all the work. Each layer of colour is a separate die so all that is required is a bit of assembly.

And the designs on the paper create the perfect background. I cut the bottom piece of Smoky Slate at an angle to help the balloon look like it was floating before adding the clouds.

Some Sale-a-Bration items are now sold out (Card Tin and Glimmer Paper) so place your order today. All SAB items are while supplies last.

Touches of Texture Blues

Touches of Texture Collage Card in Blue

 

Got the Blues?!

Sometimes getting the blues can be a good thing. For this card, I partnered up Bermuda Bay, Island Indigo and Pool Party with Basic Black and Whisper White. Definitely one of my favourite colour combinations.

Making a collage card is easy, peasy with the Touches of Texture stamp set. I simply stamped the flower in Basic Black ink across the Whisper White card stock. TIP: Remember to always start and finish off the edges of the card stock. 

Next, I over stamped the flowers with the blue centers. This set was very forgiving and I didn’t worry about being precisely centered or even in the same direction.

 

Suite Sayings Greeting on Vellum

 

I love using Vellum card stock on my cards as an accent. Do you have some in your paper stash?

I stamped the Suite Sayings Stamp Set greeting on the vellum with Basic Black Archival ink and allowed to dry for a few moments before adding a White Perfect Accent coloured with a black Sharpie marker. Be sure to colour the accent while it is still attached to the packing sheet so you don’t get marker on your card.  

 

Touches of Texture by Stampin' Up!

 There are a few textured backgrounds to choose from in the Touches of Texture stamp set.

Can you see the two different images I selected? One is more of a splatter and the other more of a canvas or fabric finish.

Make it shine! Birthday Blossoms in Gold

Birthday Blossoms in Black and Gold Card

 

Gold accents on a card seem to make it extra special, don’t you think? It doesn’t really take any longer to make the card but there is just something about the shine and richness created using a metallic like gold.

 

For this card I decided to use another new stamp set, Birthday Blossoms and the coordinating Pansy Punch. I stamped the greeting and background flower with VersaMark ink and then heat embossed with gold embossing powder. The flower was also stamped and heat embossed on a gold foil sheet.

The middle layer of the card is also a gold foil sheet sandwiched between a Basic Black card stock layer and card. Since I wanted a bit more of the gold foil to show I cut the top black layer to 3-5/8" x 4-7/8".

The flower was adhered to the card over top a looped length of Gold Metallic Thread. The center of the flower is a White Perfect Accent coloured with a black Sharpie marker.

 

This is definitely one of those cards that looks better in person. There is bit of glare from the gold foil in the photo. Trust me, I’m really happy with this finished card and the way the black and gold went together.
