You’re Fabulous

I’m on a roll making birthday cards these days. Somehow I am in short supply. I just love this sentiment from the FREE Approaching Perfection Sale-a-bration Stamp Set. For this pretty card I dug out the Peony Dies to make another beautiful 3-D flower for the focal point and then prettied up all around it with the Oh So Ombre Designer Series Paper, also FREE from the Sale-a-bration Catalog. The Lovely Labels Pick A Punch makes it quick and easy to make beautiful matted labels. Look closely, this card uses only Stamps, Ink and Paper for some #simplestamping.

Our Friendship is One of a Kind

Here it is! My favorite type of card – the simple white on white card. This is almost a #simplestamping card – just stamps, ink and paper, but I couldn’t resist adding Rhinestones! After I stamped all the snowflakes, I added a little texture with the Subtle Embossing Folder and some interest using a corner rounder on just 2 corners. That’s something I don’t usually do! Lovely!

Be Jolly This Season

I could make cards with the Brightly Designer Series Paper and Christmas Gleaming Bundle ALL DAY! I used a Stampin’ Blend to color the smaller ornament and added the Subtle Embossing folder to the background for a little texture. This is such a simple, but elegant card in all my favorite colors. Enjoy!
