Today I have some fun things to show you, both products and a technique! First of all, this sweet birthday card uses the wreath from one of my current favorite stamp sets: Wishing You Well. Wreaths work for any card, right?? This card actually uses three (3) different stamp sets…fun!
Have you ever used Whisper White Craft Ink? It’s different from other inks in that it stamps on very bright white but dries much lighter. It makes a nice subtle pattern that can be used for a background piece.
And that’s what I’ve done here. I’ve stamped the berry branch stamp from the First Frost stamp set arbitrarily on a panel of Mint Macaron card stock to create a soft background for my card. I love the way it turned out!
Then I added a narrow panel of Powder Pink card stock embossed with the Corrugated Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. I love the depth of texture it adds! A square of Soft Sea Foam card stock was stamped with the wreath stamp using Crumb Cake ink.
The little Birthday Wishes sentient from the Varied Vases stamp set just fit perfectly on this card – almost like a banner on the wreath. You could use any small sentiment, that’s what makes this card so versatile 🙂
I love hearing from you! Please leave your questions and comments here:
Today I want to show you the gorgeous leaves that you can create with the Detailed Leaves Thinlits Dies.
The three leaves shown here are intricately detailed. The different colors of card stock show off their beauty – Cajun Craze, Blackberry Bliss, and Daffodil Delight. A bit of Bright Copper Shimmer Paint has been sponged on the Daffodil Delight leaf.
Behind the leaves is a piece of Calypso Coral card stock which has been embossed with the Tin Tile Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. The embossed piece was then sponged with the Bright Copper Shimmer Paint. This paint gives a beautiful antique look.
The Bright Copper Shimmer Paint is fun, I mean seriously fun! You shake up the little jar, take off the lid, and put your Sponge Dauber into the lid to get some of the paint Then you just rub it onto the embossed panel. You can pat it on, but I’ve rubbed it on in circles so that the paint moves over the whole panel. It’s so pretty and shimmery!

The Corrugated Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder is great! Wow, this is my first time using it and I love it! I love the texture and the depth of the indentations. You absolutely MUST get this embossing folder!
Below is a photo of the embossing folder. Click right on the picture to learn more….
My card today uses two of my favorite colors right now: Merry Merlot and Gray Granite. I used the Gray Granite with the embossing folder and sponged some Merry Merlot ink on it after it came out of the Big Shot.
The leafy flower branch is from the First Frost Bundle (10% off!), stamped on Whisper White card stock wth Merry Merlot ink. The sentiment is from the Botanical Bliss stamp set 🙂
The ribbon is the Gray Granite 1/2″ Textured Weave ribbon. It makes beautiful bows 🙂
This card was easy and quick to make and you could create a few at one time – perfect for September birthdays!

Ok, so I’ve discovered I REALLY like the new First Frost Bundle in the Holiday Catalog. I knew I liked it, but when I set out to make a birthday card and still wanted to use this bundle…I realized I REALLY like it! It’s got to be the adorable flowers. They have a watercolored look and are just downright pretty!
The flowers are layered on top of sweet Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon and some die cut and punched leaves. The sentiment is stamped in Calypso Coral and cut with one of the Stitched Label Framelits. One of the adorable Blossoms Elements (a sweet little rose) is attached to the sentiment label.
The leaves on this card are a combination of two styles. The first is Vellum leaves punched out with the Leaf Punch, and the second is Petal Pink leaves die cut using the Stitched Seasons Framelits Dies.

Look at this cute typewriter! I love typewriters…I’ve spent years typing on typewriters! 🙂 And, this one is so cute, isn’t it? It’s adorably retro and has lots of messages to put on the paper!
This stamp set is called P.S. You’re the Best and, of course, that’s one of the sentiments! There are 8 different phrases you can put on the paper coming out of the typewriter.
To create this card I started with a Whisper White card stock base 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ scored at 4-1/4.” I added a 5-1/4″ x 4″ panel of Shimmery White card stock washed with a Pool Party watercolor wash. The typewriter was stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on Whisper White card stock and fussy cut. The sentiment was stamped with Melon Mambo ink and then the typewriter was placed over the watercolor wash with Stampin’ Dimensionals. A few Glitter Enamel Dots and some Rose Metallic Thread finished it off.

Stampin’ Up! has introduced a fabulous limited-time bundle called Blended Seasons, and today I have for you both a sample card and a video showing you the bundle!
This bundle is so much fun! Truthfully I’ve only played with the floral image, but am so looking forward to using every stamp in the set! I think what I like the most about this bundle is the Framelits. The large framing dies are stitched on the outside and the inside, and they create such unusual cards!
Included in this offering are Watercolor Pencils in some of our new colors! So exciting! I have the Watercolor Pencils but for this card I decided to use some of the Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Markers 🙂
You’ll be seeing lots more samples from me as I keep working with this bundle. My advice? Get it now while you can!
Thank you for stopping by today!
