Happy Anniversary

I just finished this card for my husband's cousins who will be celebrating their 50th Wedding Anniversary on Friday. For this card I used the Loving Bridal Couple stamp. The card base is 6x6 and I used textured Whisper White and Bashful Blue cardstock from Stampin' Up! The layers are adhered with stampin' dimensionals and I sponged the white cardstock with bashful blue ink. The flowers in Tilda's hair and in her hand are highlighted with dazzling diamonds and Crystal Effects both from Stampin' Up!

Here is the recipe:
Stamps: Loving Bridal Couple

Cardstock: Whisper White textured and Bashful Blue by Stampin' Up!

Inks: Bashful Blue

Accessories: Copic markers, Prismacolor pencils, Big Shot with embossing folder, heart border punch, stampin' dimensionals, pearls, ribbon, dazzling diamonds and crystal effects all by Stampin' Up!

Stylish Tilda

Today's card uses Stylish Tilda in shades pink and brown. Tilda is colored using Copics, cut out with detail paper snips and attached with stampin' dimensionals. It takes a while but the effect is so nice. I used a retired designer paper from Stampin' Up! and stitched the perimeter with white thread. The base card is 6x6 Rose Red cardstock with alternating layers of designer paper, Rose Red, Pretty in Pink and Whisper White cardstock all by Stampin' Up! I used the circle dies for the Big Shot and the circle scallop Nestabilities. The Whisper White circle is dry embossed using an embossing folder and sponged with Pretty in Pink ink. The sentiment is a retired Stampin' Up! stamp. Over the years I have kept all of my retired Stampin' Up! sentiments as they are so beautiful and I never seem to have enough.I added color to the flowers using Pretty in Pink re-inkers and added dazzling diamonds stampin' glitter. I also added stampin' glitter to Tilda's wings for that little extra sparkle.

Here is the recipe:

Stamps: Stylish Tilda, retired Stampin' Up! sentiment
Cardstock: Rose Red, Pretty in Pink and Whisper White by Stampin' Up!, designer paper retired Stampin' Up!

Accessories: Flowers from Stampin' Up! Pretties Kit , pearls,dazzling diamonds stampin' glitter, two-way glue, stampin' dimensionals and Big Shot dies, and designer buttons all available through Stampin' Up!, retired ribbon, Nestabilities scallop circle.

Strawberry Sparkle!

Hello everyone! Thank you for stopping by today. 

Today I am sharing a card that I had so much fun making.

I used a combination of Copic markers and Prismacolor pencils and then used Stampin' Up!'s Shimmer paint on the strawberry. I also highlighted some areas with Crystal Effects by Stampin' Up! This card has several layers and the edges of the Whisper White cardstock have been sponged with Melon Mambo ink. Here is another Cocoa Mouse downloaded from Sweet 'n Sassy. I recently found these wonderful digital images online and I just can't resist them. Check out the Sweet 'n Sassy site. I wish that the photo could show you the true sparkle of this card.

Here is the recipe:

The Stars and Stripes

I am back! I know it has been such a long time since I have posted. In fact, it has been a long time since I have stamped or done any paper crafting. Over the past year I became certified as a K-6 teacher in Florida and I was so fortunate to have a full time position as an Art teacher. The experience was incredible and being at the same school as my children was such a blessing! 

I found this little Sweet 'n Sassy Patriotic mouse and just could not resist creating a Fourth of July card. Better late than never!

Here is the recipe for this card:

Stamp: Downloaded from Sweet 'n Sassy

Cardstock: Stampin' Up! Brilliant Blue (retired), Shimmery White and Real Red

Accessories: White gel pen, photo corners punch, frost white shimmer paint, Stampin' Dimensionals and Crystal Effects all from Stampin' Up!
