Painted Glass Greeting card

Painted glass

Above is a card we made at a recent class.  The card base is Bermuda Bay and we used the Graceful Glass 6 X 6 Vellum which we colored using the Stampin' Blends.  I trimmed the picture down from the 6 X 6 and adhered it to a piece of Whisper White cardstock using Mini Glue Dots.  The sentiment is from the same suite of products, Painted Glass stamp set.

This is such a beautiful set and can be used for any occasion.  To see more of the items in this Suite click here  where you can also make your purchases.

Below is a list of materials I used to make this card.

Broadway Bound

I was asked by one of our Therapy teams (my dog is a certified therapy dog and we make monthly visits to Assisted Living centers) to make a birthday card for a resident who will be turning 99 on Septmber 10th!  Can you imagine what she has seen and lived through?  I filled the window with some stars and other shiney embellishments to make it a shaker card.  I also used some of the supplies in the June's Paper Pumpkin kit which coordinates with this suite.  

I love this stamp bundle and I'm sure you will too.  You can find it here.  It is perfect for making fun birthday cards and accessories.  I'm also making a Class To Go kit using this set so stay tuned for more information as to it's release.

Below is a list of the supplies I used  in the making of this card.

A New Kind of Stamp


Stampin’ Up! knows there is always room for innovation, which is why we’ve trademarked a new style of red rubber stamp. Named Distinktive (see what we did there?), these stamps start with a photograph, which our amazing Stampin’ Up! manufacturing team in Kanab, Utah then turns into a photorealistic red rubber stamp! This innovative stamp style allows you to create images with depth by simply inking and stamping something Distinktive!

Check out the two Distinktive sets on pages 110 & 151 of the new catalog. Don't forget to use the June's Host Code GJFJ9M3N and receive a FREE gift from me! 

Beautiful Day Butterfly

Hi everyone.  I hope you're doing well.  I am trying to be pro-active and get posts done as well as loading cards to my Etsy shop.  Did you know I sell my handmade cards on my Etsy shop?  If you didn't, click HERE to see what's available. It's a time consuming process but I have to make time to do this.  I was able to upload about 15 cards today in about 2 1/2 hours.

I wanted to share this card with you which is one we made in one of my stamp classes.  I used the butterfly from the Beautiful Day stamp set.  I stamped it on a piece of Whisper White cardstock and a piece of Vellum cardstock using VersaMark ink.  I then heat embossed with Silver embossing powder.  After it cooled I then colored the butterfly using Stampin' Blends- Bermuda Bay, Pool Party, Night of Navy and Old Olive. Both on the card and the back of the Vellum.  By doing this it gives the look of stained glass. I then fussy cut the Vellum Butterfly and attached it to the top of the butterfly using a couple of Mini Glue Dots.  I then stamped the mountain and cloud images from the Waterfront stamp set on the sides of the Butterfly and on top.  In the middle I stamped "Friends".

This is such an easy card to put together and your friends will be quite impressed.  You can purchase any of the supplies I used from my On-Line store and below you will find a list of products I used to make this card.
