My Twisty Turny Mechanical card

I finally did it. I have been wanting to make this mechanical card for a while and admit I had to turn to Pinterest to learn how. It magically twists and turns as you open it. It uses several bundles, stamp sets and the Falling in Love suite. The bundles were So in Love and Dragonfly Dreams and the stamp set is Touches of Texture. The base colour is Flirty Flamingo. It’s such a fun idea. I can hardly wait for the middle of March when a close friend has her birthday! 💜

Mediterranean Moments Birthday card 

Used Mediterranean Moments on this one and watercolour with Stampin Write Markers and aqua painters. I also used lots of Sale-a-bration items: Avant Garden for the sentiment, Carried Away DSP and Gold Metallic Ribbon. I’m thinking I might do a video on just the watercolour technique on this one.

Bohemian Birthday card

I wanted to show case my favourite retiring in-colours both paper and ink. The colours are blackberry bliss, hello honey, Tangelo Twist and mossy meadows. None of the dies, punches or stamp sets are retiring with the exception of the sentiment which is from the retiring set sassy salutations. I was trying to achieve a kind of bohemian collage. And I’m quite pleased with the results. I can’t see myself not using these wonderful rich assortment of colours any time soon. I’m not afraid of retired stuff at all. I even use competitors products from time to time. But for the most part I try to continue to throw in a bunch of new stuff to drool over. I’m unpredictable. #imbringingbirthdaysback #stampinup

I’ve got to say I love this Birthday Blooms rose. It makes real pretty cards! I’ve watercoloured it with my Stampin Write markers on a white heat embossed image and cut it,and a matte in Burmuda Bay, with my oval framelits die set. The lace butterfly is glitter paper cut first with the Bloomin heart thinlits die and then again with the bold butterfly thinlits die. The sentiment is from the Rose Wonder stamp set bundled with the Rose Garden thinlits dies. All set on a pool party background and embellished with rhinestone basic jewels. #imbringingbirthdaysback #stampinup

Mad Hatters Tea Party!

This is a birthday card with kind of a mad hatters tea party theme the teapot and the cup are dancing! I cut the paper for the sentiment in an angled way to further depict the mad hatters theme. The DSP used is birthday blooms the teapot is Watermelon wonder with a real red heart and the tea cup is mint macaroon with costal cabana loops on it there’s also crumb cake tea drops which are hand cut and a smoky slate steam heart. The sentiment is real red on blushing bride. Finally have a Cuppa embellishments was used in this case the dainty spoon. And a wink of Stella in gold. #imbringingbirthdaysback #StampinUp
