Pulled this SU set back off from the shelf.  I tried putting it away, but decided this sweet little bird image from it just had to be colored.

Some more fun textures here with the ridged button, the distressed edges and the grosgrain ribbon.

AND.. the Flower Soft.  Just a tiny bit of it, but isn’t it pretty!  Love.

The stamp was covered with Gesso and then stamped onto cardstock.  After this had dried (and the stamp was washed!), the stamp was inked up and stamped on top of the Gesso.

Two birthdays today.  First and most important is my DH’s birthday.  Here is the card I made for him.

KONICA MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERA

The reflection was made using an acetate sheet.  The ship was stamped onto the acetate which was then flipped and the ink pressed onto the cardstock.  The moon was made by punching a 1-3/4″ circle out of masking paper.  That was then adhered to the cardstock and the sky was sponged using various inks.  The masking paper was then removed, and the resulting moon was lightly sponged.  The water was also sponged.

This card is playing along in the Addicted to CAS Challenge #57 – Code Word “Mask”

The other birthday is my blog! It’s seven years old today!  I’ve had a fun time this past week celebrating with some blog candy.  There is still one more Stampin Up set, “Lotus Blossom,” that’s up for grabs until tomorrow.  You can find it HERE.

Here is a card made with the Stampin’ Up set called “Lotus Blossom”.  The set is today’s blog candy, and even though it’s not a tulip I think it can pass as one. Smiley.BinocularsAni

A little sentiment tag was tucked under the ribbon and a butterfly was added to anchor it.

The Blog Candy today is another Stampin’ Up Sale-a-Bration set called, “A Happy Thing.”

KONICA MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERA

For the main image the lemon was stamped, masked and stamped again.  For just a little dimension a third lemon was stamped, colored, cut out and then adhered to the main image over the front lemon.

TIP: The coloring of the third lemon included using a black Copic Marker on the cut edge.  I think this gives a more finished look and helps the cut image stand out even more. Smiley.Yes1Ani

Here are a couple of cards that I made for Valentine’s Day.

KONICA MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERA

A sparkly clear button and black sequin were added to the red hearts for a touch of fun.

KONICA MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERA

The large heart was die cut out of the card base.  By adhering a piece of double sided designer paper (dp) to the inside of the card, both sides of the dp can be seen.  And it dresses up the inside of the card, too.  LOVE!

KONICA MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERA

Here are the challenges that the cards are playing along in this week:

Simon Says Wednesday Challenge:  “Have a Heart”
