Stampin' Up! Blackberry Beauty

This card took me 5 minutes to make.  Seriously.  The Designer Series Paper sheet can be cut into six pieces of 4" x 5 1/4" inch pieces.  You can make 6 cards very quickly.  I embossed the Birthday greeting in gold and added some gilded gems.  That's it.

Stampin' Up! Pretty Pumpkins

I was inspired by the card on page 70 of the July - December Mini Catalog.  I did change it up a bit. It's all about the layers.  The detailed pumpkins are die cut using the Gold Glimmer Paper.  It adds the right amount of sparkle!

Stampin' Up! Snowflake Wishes

This is a really fun technique to create backgrounds for your cards.  Use Vellum Cardstock, Stampin' Blends, and Alcohol ( the alcohol needs to be at least 91%).  Create splotches using different colors of Stampin' Blends on Vellum Cardstock.  Using a Water Painter, paint alcohol over the splotches so it spreads over the colors spreading the color over the cardstock.  I also flicked some alcohol to create small splotches.  

I embossed snowflakes in white on the Vellum Cardstock and adhered one of the Wonderful Snowflakes and some of the Blue Gems on to finish it off.  The greeting is also embossed in white.

Stampin' Up! Beauty of Tomorrow

Happy Birthday to our oldest daughter, Yvonne!  Wow...It seems like just yesterday we were bringing her home from the hospital.  Within the next six years she was joined by 2 sisters and a brother.  She was an awesome older sister!

This card is very similar to the one of cards I demonstrated on one of our Sunday Stamping With Susan & Julie videos.  Instead of using die cuts from the Ephemera Pack, I colored the floral images with Rich Razzleberry and Cinnamon Cider Stampin' Write Markers and die cut them.  I frayed a piece of Gold Shimmer Ribbon to embellish the flowers.
