Hello Sunshine

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.

Faux Wood Burning

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.

Resilient, Strong & Beautiful

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.

Squeeze real tight…

Encouragement card created with Stampin’ Up Marble stamp and Paper Hug stamps and dies from #HoneyBeeStamps. The sentiment on the front and in the card, which says “Hold this card close to your heart. That’s as close to you as I can get to hugging you right now. I can’t wait to hug you in person.” are from the Honey Bee Paper Hug set. The heart with arms was adhered with a wobble.

Let It Ride

Encouragement card created with Stampin’ Up Let it Ride. The horses were stamped with Cajun Craze and then colored with copics E09, E019, E11, E08 and E15. The background was brushed with distress oxide inks. The trees were stamped with distress oxide Iced Spruce. The sentiment is also from Let it Ride, The Lost Lagoon layer was embossed with SU Coastal Weave embossing folder.

Wishing you Sunshine & Happiness

Encouragement card created using Stampin’ Up All Wired Up, which was stamped with Golden Glitz Delicata ink. The honeycomb and bees, which are from Stampin’ Up Honey Bee, were stamped with Memento and SU Summer Sun inks, and then cut using SU Detailed Bee dies. I replaced the card stock antennas and bee legs with 26 gauge wire.
