Stampin' Up! Enjoy Life

Our son-in-law, Josh, turns the big 4-0 next week!  He loves to ride his bike and hits the trails every chance he gets.  I love the Hammered Metal 3D Embossing folder.  I did a wash on the background with  Gray Granite and Night of Navy.  After it was thoroughly dry (overnight in this case), I embossed the image with Black Embossing Powder.  

Happy Birthday, Josh!

Stampin' Up! Stampin' Up! Stitched Be Mine

My mother, husband and I were invited to a wedding that will take place in a few weeks.  Unfortunately, with my mother's illness, we will not be able to travel across the state to join the festivities.  I made a couple of cards to send to Patrick and Kathy.  Their wedding invitation was Rococo Rose, so of course that is the featured color in the cards I made. The theme of their bridal shower was hearts so again, an easy decision!  I thought it would be fun to make a shaker card for them.

Stampin' Up! Pop of Petals

Angie made another card with the Pop of Petals stamp set.  I love the color combination Calypso Coral and Pretty Peacock!  The clear Faceted Gems look so pretty in the center of the flowers.  

This is a really nice card for any occasion.

Stampin' Up' Gather Together

Like many of you, Fall is my favorite time of year.  I love the changing colors and the cooler temperatures. There is a lot about the Gather Together suite to get your juices flowing!  The Designer Series Paper is loaded with vibrant colors, some are non traditional to be sure, but this paper will just pop on your projects.  The coordinating dies have beautiful leaves and pumpkins.  The Gather Together Stamp set has some beautiful sentiments - and I love the fonts.  

I did something a little different with the large leaf on this card.  I stamped it in Early Espresso and let it dry for a few moments. After I die cut it out, I added a few drops of the new Celestial Copper ink refill to one of our Spritzers filled with alcohol, shook it to mix it up, then sprayed it.  I let the first layer dry and spritzed on a second layer.  After it dried, I assembled the card.  NOTE: the small maple leaf below the tag is from the Seasonal Layers Dies from the Annual Catalog.  I love how products from the Annual Catalog coordinates with product from the Holiday Catalog!
