45th Anniversary Card

My last card for today is an anniversary card for my parents (45 years - wow!). My parents are big nature lovers so I knew these Trendy Birds would be perfect! I am submitting this card to the STAMPlorations Anything Goes Challenge.

Here's my card:

Since this is a big anniversary - I went with vellum for my card base. I went bold with the color of the birds - I love the pattern of these images!

Mondo Magnolia Birthday Card

I was thrilled to get my hands on Ellen Hutson's Mondo Magnolia stamp and dies - I love this large flower!!!!! I made a birthday card for a co-worker featuring this gorgeous image and have some fun techniques going on here.  I'm submitting this card to the Essentials by Ellen September Pin-Sights Challenge and the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Die Crazy.

Here is the inspiration Ellen provided:

And my card:

I was inspired by the pinks and greens and those gold stars! The flower is die cut from vellum, stamped with Versamark and heat embossed in gold! Gorgeous! I water colored the flower to give it color. The sentiment is also gold embossed.  The background is ink applied through a stencil on a panel.

Cute Koala Card for SSS Monday Challenge

After an extended blog break, I'm back with some new creations! To start off I have a cute card I made for my niece's birthday that I'm submitting to the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge - Love this Technique. My card features coloring (with markers) - a fun technique that I love to do with cute images like these koalas (and their hats)! 

Here are some up close shots - there is glossy accents on those balloons and wink of stella on those hats (and noses).

Thanks for visiting!
