If you've been thinking about joining Stampin' Up! this is a great time to do it!
one of the ladies I work with will be retiring on Friday. I've worked with her for 4 years now. Funniest little old lady you could imagine! It was always a joy to work with her. When our little company got bought and moved to a new location, she started working from home- and would come in twice a month. Those days I really looked forward to, because she was just so funny and a pleasure to work with. I will really miss her.
So I had to make a better than 'usual' card for her. (she always loves the cards I make). I cased this from the lovely Rachel Tessman. It's called the Diagonal tuck explosion card.
This is what it looks like opened. Plenty of room for everyone to leave a nice personal message for her. Friday will be bittersweet.
Every month I send out birthday cards for a BRAK (Birthday Random Act of Kindness) on a board I've been on for what seems like-forever. So I always do a stack of birthday cards for each month to send out. This one was fun to make. I used the now retired stamp set from Sale-A-Bration Eclectic Expressions. It was the first time I took it out to play with. I will definitely have to use it more. There is also a "thank you" sentiment, so it's great for all kinds of cards.
this one was cased from Pinterest, with a couple changes. The original was just stamped on a white card base, but I wanted to add an additional layer, and put it on a base of Night of Navy. I used Bermuda Bay and Night of Navy ink. I also did a stamp off on the front "splotches" to make sure the sentiment stood out.
I was easily able to make a stack of 18 of these rather quickly.
One of my co-workers likes dolphins, so when her birthday was yesterday on Tuesday, I knew I just had to make this for her.
And of course this meant I had to make a shaker card. I did a mix of old and new. Stampin up is bringing back one of my favourite blues- Coastal Cabana. So I had to use that with the seaside texture embossing folder to make the waves. The dolphins are from a retired set. Stamped on thick whisper white cardstock in basic gray. I then watercoloured them in smoky slate. When that was dry, I added some clear wink of stella.
In the shaker part of the card, I mixed the retired dazzling diamonds, and the to be released tranquil textures sprinkles. I stamped the edges of the crumb cake cardstock with images from timeless textures in soft suede. Just to make it "feel" like sand. This was all mounted on a bermuda bay base.
The card was a hit. She loved it and I'm so glad she did. I love making cards that reflect the receiver's interests.
