Card using another Sue Wilson Creative Expression Stained Glass Collection – Hummingbird. I cut black card stock with the die twice. I glued one layer of the die cut to acetate and then colored the acetate with sharpies. I then glued the other die cut to the back of the acetate before adhering it to a piece of white card stock.

Happy Valentine’s Day

Top layer of hearts on the Valentine card were created using Stampin’ Up Ribbon of Courage, which I colored with markers. The larger layer was cut with Stampin’ Up Heart dies. The sentiment, stamped in Sweet Sugarplum, is from Hero Arts. Card stock layers are Stampin’ Up Sweet Sugarplum and a teal from Michaels. The card is a soft pink 110# cardstock also from Michaels.

Stained Glass

Another card using Sue Wilson’s Stained Glass Collection die – this time Butterfly. I used the die twice on black cardstock and glued a piece of acetate between the two cuts. Once the glue was dry, I used Sharpie markers to color the acetate. Next, I adhered the die cuts and acetate to white cardstock, then on teal cardstock.

Paper Hug

Thinking of You card created using the Hugs & Hello bundle from The Stamp Market, The DSP is Stampin’ Up Falling In Love. The butterflies on the sentiment are from Stampin’ Up Butterfly Gala, which I stamped on Shrinky Dinks film, colored them with Sharpie colored pens and shrunk them with my heating tool. The inside of the card used the sentiment from Stampin’ Up Lilypad Lake and the butterflies are also from Stampin’ Up Butterfly Gala.

Stained Glass Effect

I created this card using the Sue Wilson Stained Glass Collection – Sailboat die. I used the die three times on white cardstock, which I glued together for dimension. I cut it a fourth time, but kept the pieces intact by carefully taping the back after the cut, I colored the taped version using markers and glued the dimensional cuts on top. Once I had the pieces together, I covered the entire thing with glossy accents to give it the glass effect. After this was completely dry, I adhered it to a piece of marbled cardstock.

Birthday Wishes
