Quirky Critters Sloth Birthday Card

This cute belated birthday card features the adorable sloth from the Quirky Critters Stamp Set in the annual catalog.  The image was stamped with memento ink and colored with the Stampin' Blends.  Using the Layering Circle framelits also from the annual catalog, the image is cut out on the big shot along with a scalloped frame cut from garden green card stock.  The framelits come with 16 dies in a variety of different sizes that will be a go to for all your card making needs.

Father Christmas Tag

The traditional colors of the Be Merry DSP by Stampin' UP add to the Christmas cheer of the tag.  To get the layered look of the tag, I used the Lots of Labels framelits.  Santa was cut out with the smaller size one, the DSP was the next largest and finally, the largest was cut from Cherry Cobbler card stock. I stamped the sentiment in Cherry Cobbler ink and cut it out with the smallest of the framelits and then sponged the edges with Cherry Cobbler ink.

Emboss Resist Technique features the Label Me Pretty Stamp Set

Emboss Resist Technique

Emboss Resist is a technique that creates a lot of impact for very little effort.   On a small piece of whisper white card stock, you simply stamp the Brushstrokes image in Versamark ink, sprinkle with clear or white embossing powder, and then melt it with a heat gun. Using sponge wedges, sponge each of the five colors right over the top of the embossing.  Wipe the remaining ink off the embossed stripes with a paper towel.  So much fun while being a quick technique. Try it out!

Watercoloring Inside The Lines

This bright color palette makes for a cheerful birthday card. The colors play out in the watercoloring on the sentiment as well as the watercoloring done on the embossed image at the bottom of the card. It is really simple to color the embossing with the matching pencil and use a blender pen to smudge it. The sentiment "Enjoy" was stamped in Stazon and watercolored with the pencils and blended with a blender pen. The sentiment comes from the Everyday Tags stamp set.
