Quick friendship card created using specialty paper from Michaels. The sentiment is from Stampin’ Up Forever Fern (available in June).
I needed a quick masculine get well card, so I turned to the faux wood burning technique using Stampin’ Up Nature’s Beauty. The sentiment is from Stampin’ Up Thoughts and Prayers. The picture does not do the technique justice, as it really looks like wood burning.
Card for my husband for our 15th anniversary. I created it with Stampin’ Up Best Birds and Birch stamps, and copic markers.
Encouragement card created with Stampin’ Up Celebrate Sunflower (available in June) and Stampin’ Up Best Bird. The sunflower, leaves and bee was stamped and cut out after coloring with copics. I also stamped the sunflower and some leaves on the first layer to add to the dimension. I adhered the cut out flower, leaves and bee with dimensionals. You cannot see it in the picture, but I added clear Wink of Stella to the wings of the bee to give it a little shimmer.
Birthday card for an 11 year old who is involved in cheer. Created using free cheer clipart
Thinking of you card created with Stampin’ Up Ornate Style (daisies) and Stampin’ Up Inspiring Iris (iris and carnations) stamp sets. The flowers were stamped and/or colored with copics, then fussy cut before being adhered to a layer that was created with brusho crystals. The sentiment, which was from the Inspiring Iris set, was free cut before being adhered with dimensionals.
I decided to do two more “faux wood burning” cards today. The first one is using Stampin’ Up Celebrate Sunflower stamp, which will be available in June. For the second card I used the retiring Stampin’ Up Accented Blooms stamp. Both cards were created on watercolor card stock. The faux wood burning technique uses Stampin’ Up Early Expresso ink and to create the wood look, it is embossed with the Wood Plank embossing folder.
I just had to case Glenda Calkin’s (The Stamp Camp) card using the Faux Wood burning technique on watercolor card stock and using Stampin’ Up Good Morning Magnolia stamp. Such an easy card, but beautiful outcome. You can see her video on YouTube making this card.
Thank you cards for the CNAs and Nurses at the rehab facility where my mother is receiving therapy. The first one is created using digi-stamps from Kindred Stamps and the second one is created using digi-stamp from MFT. After printing, I fussy cut the individuals out and then colored with copics.
My final encouragement card of the weekend. This card was cas’d from A Stamp Above. It was created with Stampin’ Up Strong and Beautiful and Thoughtful Blooms stamp sets. In addition, I used the small bloom punch, flowering foils that I colored with copic markers, layering circle dies and Martha Stewart large leaf punch.
