Flowers in a Vase Happy Birthday

I had a few flowers and leaves leftover from my previous card and decided to use the small bud vase in the Altenew Versatile Vases. I decided to place the flower arrangement on a large oval shape for this card. I ran it through the Big Shop with the Stampin’ Up Subtle Embossing Folder, which give a very subtle texture that is lovely. I adhered the fast to the oval with 3M 1/2″ Foam Tape. As before, I added Ranger Glossy Accents to give the vase a glass look.

It look lovely, but it just felt a little flat, so I decided to add Ranger Gold Stickles to the edges of the oval, this is fairly easy to do since you have the stitched details on the outside edge.

Peony Dream Happy Birthday to You

The Altenew Peony Dream 3D Die is a large image and really makes a statement on a card. I decided to use the yellow and orange combination that I used on previous card. It turned out more orange and coral with a hint of yellow, but I think it’s pretty.

I die cut the layers from Strathmore Bristol Smooth Cardstock and colored them with ZIG Clean Color Real Brush Markers. When assembling the layers I like to add some dimension between the bottom layers and the top.

To add visual interest I die cut a rectangle using Gina Marie Designs Lotus Blossom, stamped the sentiment at the bottom with Gina K. Designs Amalgam Ink and adhered it to the card front with Kokuyo Dotliner Long Adhesive. The flower was adhered using liquid glue.

Happy Birthday is Written in the Stars

When I saw the name of this cute image from La-La Land Crafts “Shining Star Marci” I knew I wanted to use stars for the card design.

I pulled out my largest star die and die cut it from gold mirror cardstock. I wanted the Marci image to be sitting on a star.

This is a digital stamp and so I printed it using a laser printer so that I would bleed when colored with Copic Markers. The color scheme was determined by the recipient’s favorite colors.Once coloring was complete I used my Silhouette PIXScan Mat to cut around the image.

I pulled out My Favorite Things Written in the Stars and die cut the word from Neena Classic Crest and from Darcie Sticky Back Foam. I used my Copic Markers to give an ombre affect to the “Stars” die cut. For the secondary sentiment I used the Copic Markers to color some leftover cardstock to match and stamped the sentiment with VersaMark Ink and heat embossed with Gina K. Designs Detailed White Embossing Powder.

For additional interest on the card I die cut a rectangle from white cardstock with a My Favorite Things A2 Stitched Rectangle and then embossed the Memeory Box Starry Night Background Die.

I placed all the elements on the card the way I liked them and adhered them using liquid glue. I felt it needed a little something extra. The Marci image has her hand out as if she is holding something so I die cut a small heart from mirror cardstock and placed it in her add. I also covered the star at the end of her headband with a gold mirror die cut star as well.

Fall Leaves Gratitude

I love the quote by President Thomas S. Monson “To live with gratitude ever in our hearts is to touch heaven.” I think it is true. Life is sweeter when we look through the challenges and experiences of our lives with gratitude.

I like it so much that I made it again adding a die cut “Thank You” from Karen Burniston.
