Enveloper Hello Girl Birthday Card

This was created for personal use.

I love the girl/foliage stamp from Waffle Flower, but I struggle with how to color it. This time, I used by MISTI tool, and colored each individual element and stamped separately. Multiple times (the main image was probably stamped 40 times!), because my old Stampin’ Up! markers were not giving me great coverage on the clear stamp. I am mostly pleased with the finished product.

If you have any suggestions about what type of markers will give me more coverage on a clear stamp, please leave me a comment!!  (thanks!)

I stamped butterflies on the background, and then added an embossed butterfly and an embossed sentiment.

Glittery Sugar Skull Birthday Card

This one is for Cousin Pati’s birthday.

She loves sugar skulls and shiny pink things.

Offspring3 gave me a packet of glitter skulls…hmmmm…maybe 2 years ago? One of the pink glitter ones screamed at me for this project.

I embossed a selection of birthday related sentiments on green for the background.

Happy Birthday, Cousin Pati!!
