Textures & Frames with aTrio of Greens ~ Birthday Card Idea

Welcome to my Corner of the World

The Textures and Frames Stamp Set is featured in today’s card, one of the best things about this set is that you can get it for free if you place an order before Sept 30th 2021 as part of SALE-A-BRATION. To give you an idea on what you can do with this set I selected 3 of Stampin’ UP! greens and randomly stamped over a piece of Very Vanilla Card. When the card was all finished it struck me that it could be used for male or female, you could change out the colors, of course, but those greens are gonna work either way.

Hummingbird Thinking of You Card Idea

Welcome to my Corner of the World

I made this card a few months ago using one of the Saleabration Stamp Sets, A Touch of Ink. While it is no longer available I thought I would still share it as I really like the layout which would lend itself to a stamp set you might have in your stash.

Soft Suede is a great neutral base color and can be paired with almost any of the colors in the Stampin’ UP! family, I added a strip of Scalloped Lace Trim to boost up the femininity but if you change out the Rococo Rose card for a more masculine color and drop the lace it would make a great guy card as well.

Creating a frame with Gilded Leafing Embellishment.

Welcome to my Corner of the World

Last week I shared an embossing technique using the new and beautiful Gilded Leafing Embellishment, this gives the most fantastic effect but is oh, so easy to do. Today I have another technique using double sided Tear and Tape to create a frame to make your card shine out!

I changed the color combination for the card in my video, just to show how different combinations look. I have also used the exclusive Sale-a-bration Corner Bouquet Stamp set which you can get for free with a $50 product order.
