Polar Bears Nose BOOP Card

I am in the middle of designing Christmas cards for my parents to mail. They chose this polar bear image, I came up with the rest.

Foiled Floral Birthday Card

My gym friend, Sherry, gave me some paper that was used underneath fabric during a dye process.

I stamped some pressed flowers and had to dry the ink with my heat gun (the paper has a coating – it feels a bit like a heavyweight butcher’s paper). I embossed the leaves with clear embossing powder, then put it through my laminator with Ranger foil.

WOW! I have never had such good results with foiling. Not sure if this is related to the embossing powder I used (Stampendous), the solid aspect of the leaf image, or the brand of foil (Ranger).

Supplies: Stamps – A Muse Artstamps, Papertrey Ink, Stampin’ Up!, paper – dyed butcher’s paper, Papertrey Ink Vintage Cream, Stampin’ Up! Elegant Eggplant, inks – Stampin’ Up! Elegant Eggplant, Pear Pizzazz, Wild Wasabi (retired), Wisteria Wonder (retired), VersaFine Onyx Black, VersaMark, dies – Lawn Fawn, transfer foil – Ranger, embossing powder – Stampendous Detail clear.


Fight Like A Girl Daisy Card

I stamped and embossed my favorite A Muse daisy, added a sentiment and a die cut ribbon.

This is for personal use.

Supplies: Stamps – A Muse Artstamps, A Muse Studio, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Poptone Razzle Berry, ink – VersaFine Onyx Black, dies – Essentials by Ellen (ribbon), Spellbinders (square), embossing powder – Filigree Fine Art Powder clear.

Cat and Butterflies Wonderful Card

Do you think this cute cat expected to find three new friends in the grass?

I die cut the cat shape out of the background and placed the Copic colored die cut cat within the space, so he is not sitting on top of the grass, but within the grass.

Soft Sky (retired), So Saffron, inks – Copic BG10, C1, C3, R11, Stampin’ Up! Old Olive, VersaFine Onyx Black, dies – Simon Says Stamp (cat), Stampin’ Up!
