Floral Birthday Card with Tinted Embossing Paste Background

I am still playing with embossing paste here. For this background, I mixed a little bit of Almost Amethyst ink into the clear embossing paste before spreading it across the stencil.

I die cut a flower out of green, and used the “petals” for leaves.

Almost Amethyst (retired), VersaFine Onyx Black, dies – Lawn Fawn (stitched rectangles), Provo Craft (flower), stencil – Neat & Tangled, embossing paste – Dreamweaver/Wendy Vecchi/Studio 490 clear, embossing powder – Ranger Silver Pearl.

Pineapple Hello Note Card

I splurged recently and bought the die that coordinated with the pineapple stamp set (gifted to me by Offspring3 last fall).

I stamped the greenery on green cardstock, and cut it out using the pineapple die. Then, I put yellow cardstock into the Provo Craft Textile embossing folder and embossed it. I rubbed tan ink over the raised areas, and cut it using the pineapple die. I guesstimated where the fruit/foliage line would be, and cut with scissors.

Supplies: Stamps – Hero Arts, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Daffodil Delight, Pear Pizzazz, Pool Party, inks – Stampin’ Up! Crumb Cake, Old Olive, Pear Pizzazz, VersaFine Vintage Sepia, dies – Hero Arts (pineapple), My Favorite Things (pierced rectangle), embossing folder – Provo Craft, embossing powder – Filigree Fine Art Powder clear.

Floral 13th Birthday Card

13th-birhday-purple-flowers

Last of the cards for the large collection I just finished.

Hardest part of this – what colors do you think will be popular for 13 year old girls in the year 2029? Made my brain hurt for a few days, let me tell you!

I am pleased with the final product.

New kitchen flooring (sheet vinyl – I am old school!) being installed today. Can I admit I don’t enjoy remodeling mess? I vacuumed the kitchen, garage (table saw location), and deck (new patio sliding door installed) yesterday afternoon.

Supplies: Stamps – Stampin’ Up!, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Poptone Sour Apple, Taylored Expressions Jelly Donut, inks – Stampin’ Up! Certainly Celery (retired), Lovely Lilac (retired), VersaFine Smokey Gray, dies – Lawn Fawn (banner), Provo Craft (numbers), Spellbinders (circle),  embossing powder – Ranger Silver Pearl, organdy ribbon – Stampin’ Up!
