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)

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.

Foxy Friends Christmas card

I told you I really fell in love with the Fox Builder punch and Foxy Friends stamp set. Here’s one other card that I did with this amazing bundle! I think this little racoon is so cute!!! What I like about this stamp set is that it includes so many elements: the trees, the tree stump, all the different faces for the animals, and even cute mushrooms!!! I used the dazzling diamonds to add some sparkling touches on the trees and on the snow. (I know it’s not so obvious on the picture.)
