Sketched Birthday and Bring on the Cake stamp sets

Still playing with the new Stampin’ Up! Circle Card Thinlits dies, so much fun!  Prior to owning this die, I had never made a swing card, now I am not sure I can stop making them.  Initially, I was put off by the price, but considering there are 10 dies in the set it really is a good value.  Hope you will purchase the die and give swing cards a try.    Happy Stampin!

Truly Grateful, Gently Falling and Gorgeous Grunge stamp sets

I am loving these stamp sets!  They lend themselves to so many great techniques. Today, I placed a folded baby wipe on a plate,  put drops of ink pad refills on the baby wipe, in roughly the shape of the leaf stamp, and used that as my stamp pad.  I had never tried to do this before and think the colors blended really well.  It was surprisingly easy.  I hope you will give it a try.    Happy Stampin!

Truly Grateful stamp set

We are having such nice weather today, finally temps are in the low 80’s instead of the mid to high 90’s . . . hurray.  I am so ready for cool days and crisp autumn nights.  This card reflects my desire for fall to arrive, soon!  I tried a new technique, I used a stipple brush (I included a picture of it with my card) to apply color to the card stock.  To achieve the void, I held the Big Shot Deco Label Collection framelit down while I applied the color.  Then I removed the framelit and cut the image out with the next larger size framelit.  To achieve the black backing to the image I used the Big Shot to cut the larger size framelit and cut that in half.  Then I used a framelit from the Circle Collection to cut out a circle.  I placed the circle behind the center of focal image and placed the black half pieces to the top and bottom.  I think it really turned out great, what do you think?    Happy Stampin!
