Colorful season wedding card

Today’s card is a beautiful wedding card I made for my cousin’s wedding. I used the new framelits Seasonal layers (matching the Colorful Season stamp set) to cut the flowers and branch. To add a little bit of pink to my flowers, I added a touch of pink with the watercolor pencils and used the blender pen to soften it. The birds were cut with the Bird builder punch (now retired). For the background, I used the Hardwood background stamp, with White craft ink on Crumb cake card stock.

Finally the greeting is from Essence de Rose stamp set and I used the Stitched Shapes Framelits to cut the stitched oval.

Lift me up… to retirement!

The Lift me up beautiful stamp set and matching Thinlits is the perfect set for masculine cards but also for anybody going on a trip, new adventures or retirement! I made this card for a co-worker who just retired. My favorite part in this set is certainly this beautiful hot air balloon! I used Night of Navy card stock for the outer, with Tangerine Tango and Daffodil Delight in the background. I used the sponge dauber to add some Night of Navy ink on the outside to add more depth to my hot air balloon. This bundle also has beautiful clouds framelits! I also sponged the clouds’ borders with Pool Party ink and used dimensionals to raise a few up, to add dimension to the card.

The background is made with a designer series paper from the last Occasion catalogue called Cupcake and Carousel.

Greetings is from the stamp set called “Fleurs de l’âge”. (Wild about flowers)

Colorful Seasons: Life is beautiful!

One new stamp set and matching Thinlits that immediately caught my eyes in the new catalogue is called “Colorful Seasons“. It’s such as beautiful set and it’s perfect for all year long! There’s everything you need for every season, from beautiful snowflakes to a nice Adirondack chair!

I’ve made this card thinking of a beautiful and relaxing day on the beach! Don’t you wish you were there?

To do the sky, I used the Color Theory Designer Series paper stack. I like how the blue has a nice color gradient to it! I used the darker side of the paper to do the water. A tear is perfect for this, leaving a nice white line perfect for the waves! For the chair, I used the Wood Textures Designer Series paper stack. The sun is made with the Swirly Bird stamp set.

Here’s the stamp set and thinlits:

Climbing Orchids #2

I couldn’t resist making another card with the new Climbing Orchids bundle! For this one, I used the new In-Color “Berry Burst”and Rich Razzleberry. I stamped the orchids on the new Color Theory Designer Series paper. This paper has a nice color gradient from light to dark (on the same sheet), so my flowers look even more real!

For the background, I used Soft Sky card stock, stamped with Timeless Texture stamp set to add some ink splatters and shading at the bottom. I used the same color ink to make it more subtle.
