So it’s a week into 2017 and I really haven’t dropped off the face of the planet. I’m just behind…some things never change! I’m happy to announce, however, that I have my schedule of classes for the Sale-a-bration months all ready and you are personally invited! Something new….register and attend all 4 classes offered during the next 3 months and you’ll receive a coupon good for a free class of your choice in April or May!
Darn, time flies! Today, my son Christopher turns 21! I decided to use the sketch challenge to create his birthday card. What do you think? I love using the Dapper Denim and Emerald Envy together with white to make a masculine card.
Here’s the sketch challenge:
Here’s my card:

Now if you’ll excuse me, I have some celebrating to do with a wonderful birthday boy/man who will always be my baby!
I’m normally not a bird fan…in fact there have been a few bird stamps that have freaked me out! But, I love this Best Birds Set!
And what’s even better….it has matching framelits. No fussy cutting! (You’re welcome!)
Today over on SSINKspiration the designers are featuring Sympathy cards. I thought this card would make a great sympathy card.
To color the bird I used my aquapainters and ink in the lid of the stamp pad. For the background, I used the woodland embossing folder inked with crumb cake and just closed the crumb cake card stock inside. I didn’t emboss it.
There are some great stamp sets that have stamps that just scream….”Use me for Backgrounds!” Birthday Fiesta Is one of those! This is a great set and using that llama just makes me happy!
Today on SSInkspiration Blog, the designers have used stamps to create their own DSP (Designer Series Paper). Here’s my contribution. I used the twisted banner stamp to create my DSP.
I love the combination of Black and Silver and White. I think it’s classy for weddings. This card was actually pretty easy to do as I used the sponge brayer over top of the Irresistibly Floral Specialty Designer Series Paper and magically the image appears….it’s wonderful!
To get the silver wording, I used versamark ink and silver embossing powder. To keep the “shine” going I accented with the silver foil sheets and finally, tied off a bow with the 1/8″ Silver Ribbon and added a few rhinestone jewels. Now all I need is a wedding to pop up!
If you’re in the mood for some more “shiny” cards, check out what the other designers have created today on the SSINKspiration Blog.
