    Friends are like Seashells #1

    I have been waiting to use the new Friends Are Like Seashells set from Stampin’ Up!, but couldn’t decide how to use it. There are so many beautiful cards on the web and the set practically makes the card itself. I finally decided on using my go-to layering technique. The background paper is a Copper Foil Sheet embossed with the Seashells 3D embossing folder. Next is a vellum die cut using the Seaside Seashells die. Beside the lovely seashell images, I used Opal Rounds to give it a little bling!

    Art Gallery #2 – Thinking of You

    Sneak Peak #4 This card is very much like the one posted yesterday. It is from the beautiful Fine Floral Suite in the new Spring mini catalog due out January 1st. I used a few different colors of ink, but all of the images are from the Art Gallery stamp set — including the greetings. The designer series paper, Flower & Field, is free from the Sale-a-bration catalog when you purchase a minimum of $50 between January 4 – February 28. As with all Stampin’ Up! dsp, the colors used are always listed on the back of the package. I used those colors to make this card. Order the Spring…

    Sending Positive Thoughts

    It was time for me to make a few Get Well cards for some special friends of mine, so I went to my go to – The Forever Greenery suite from the annual Stampin’ Up! catalog. As I’ve said before, this designer series paper is so lovely that it can be used without embellishments. I used die cuts from my stash of the Forever Flourishing dies, some vellum background and the Positive Thoughts stamp set.
