It’s your birthday

For these birthday cards, I took a piece of vellum and marked it up with green, blue and yellow copic markers and then spritzed it with rubbing alcohol. I added some drops of other colors of alcohol marker refills and moved the colors around. Once happy with the colors, I dried it with the heat tool. I added a piece of the vellum to a piece of white cardstock cut to 3.75 x 5. Then adhered it to a 4 x 5.25 piece of cardstock, before adhering it to the card base. The daisies are from Stampin’ Up Daisy Lane. The leaves on the yellow daisies are from SU Daisy Delight and the leaves on the pink daisies were cut with the SU Leaf punch. The sentiments are from Stampin’ Up Itty Bitty Birthday. One of the sentiments was cut with the Stampin’ Up Lovely Labels Pick a Punch and the other one was cut with Stampin’ Up Nested Labels die.

Happy New Year 2021

New Year card created with Stampin’ Up Sip, Sip, Hooray stamp set and SU Sip & Celebrate dies. These were adhered to the gold dot card stock by The Paper Studio, which was then adhered to the gold card stock. The sentiment was printed and then put through the laminator with gold foil. The sentiment was then cut with the Lovely Labels Pick a Punch and the Triple Banner Punch.

Sending a little smile

Thinking of you card created using the Spotlight technique. The background was stamped with Stampin’ Up Beautiful Bouquet background stamp. I then stamped it again, which I colored and cut with a circle die and adhered it with dimensionals. The sentiment is from Stampin’ Up Fancy Phrases and cut with the SU Lovely Labels punch.


Thinking of you card created with Altenew Versatile Vases and Stampin’ Up Jar of Flowers. You cannot see it in the picture, but I covered the vase with Glossy Accents to give it the glassy look. The arrangement was adhered to a layer that was cut with SU Stitched Nested Labels die. I then attached that to a layer that had been embossed with the SU Subtle Dynamic embossing folder.
