Mr.and Mrs. wedding card

Mr.and Mrs. single stamp

I LOVE that Stampin' Up! has a collection of single stamps! This one is called Mr. and Mrs. and makes a great wedding card! I am really into gray right now, so this is just a simple card in gray and white.
I used the Lacy Brocade embossing folder for the background.

Ears to you!

I finally remembered to order my Ears to You! single stamp from Stampin' Up! I think these bunnies are adorable, and I have made several of these cards in different colour combinations. The new single stamps are available until March 31. Click HERE and HERE to see them!

Ears to you!

The colour combination is Pretty in Pink, Elegant Eggplant, Bashful Blue, Whisper White, Chocolate Chip and Crumb Cake. I also used the Ovals framelits (#129381) and the Apothecary Accents framelits (#127003) and pierced it with the matching Essentials Piercing Pack (#126187). The Whisper White background was embosed with the Perfect Polka Dots folder.

Valentine's Day cards

After seeing a pin on Pinterest about how to elongate one of my framelits dies, I was inspired to make some Valentine's day cards.

Hearts a Flutter stamps and More Amore paper
I used my new favourite designer series paper, More Amore (#129309), and the Hearts a Flutter stamp set and matching framelits (#131098). I stamped the "just for you" sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes (#115370) and cut it out with the Bitty Banners framelit (#129267). I really liked how the design turned out, so I tried it again:

P.S. I Love You
 This time I used the retired stamp set P.S. I Love You and embossed the images with black embossing powder (#109133). The colour palette is Real Red, Basic Black and Very Vanilla and I used the First Edition Specialty paper (#121878) for the background.

Feeling Sentimental cards

One of the FREE Sale-a-Bration items you can choose is this really retro stamp set called Feeling Sentimental, which includes 4 images. Today I made 2 cards, using 2 of the images from this set. I kept my pallette black, grey, red and white for both cards.

I added the Argyle embossing folder here (page 189), on Real Red Core'dinations cardstock, then lightly sanded. I added the ribbon with a safety pin from the Vintage Trinkets accesories on page 175.
For this card, I added the Take a Ticket stamp set, stamped in black ink on Real Red and Basic Gray cardstock, and used the Ticket Duo punch to punch them out.

Secret Garden Emboss Resist Technique

Sometimes the most beautiful technique ends up being one of the easiest to do! I used Stampin' Up!'s Secret Garden stamp set and matching framelits (LOVE matching framelits) to demonstrate this technique. For this technique, you will need:
-Whisper White card stock
-white embossing powder
-Versamark pad
-ink pad (I used Pink Pirouette)
-heat tool
-a dauber or sponge
-a rubber stamp (I used Secret Garden)
-a tissue

 How to emboss resist:
-stamp your image with versamark onto Whisper White card stock
-pour on the white embossing powder
-shake off the excess
-heat with the heat tool (you will notice the powder melting)
-using the dauber or sponge, apply ink to the embossed image. Start in the middle and work your way out to create more depth.
-using the tissue, wipe off the excess ink

Here is my finished card:

Materials used:
-Secret garden stamp set and matching framelits 131099 clear mount bundle
-Apothecary Accents framelits 127003
-ovals framelits 129381

-Perfect Polka Dot embossing folder 117335
