Faux Marble Look

Details: Card base is Pretty in Pink, layered with Whisper white that was embossed with Vintage Wallpaper Embossing folder. I made 3 panels for the front, inspired by these dominos I altered.

I stamped the En Francais background stamp on Glossy White card stock with Brown Stazon Ink. Then, using sponge daubers, I sponged on Pretty in Pink and So Saffron ink.

The panels were matted with Chocolate chip card stock and adhered to the base with stampin dimensionals.

To finish off the card, I tied Pretty in Pink 5/8″ Satin Ribbon around the bottom of the card.

Flower Fancy Birthday Pearls


This is a birthday card using the Flower Fancy stamp set. By changing out the sentiment, this could make a beautiful Easter card, Get Well card, Thank You card, or general all occasion card.

The card base is Marina Mist textured card stock, layered with Chocolate Chip and Nursery Suite DSP. Across the front, I added Marina Mist 5/8″ Grosgrain Ribbon.

As I mentioned earlier, the flower is from Flower Fancy, stamped in Chocolate Chip ink on Whisper White. I colored the flower in with Pretty in Pink ink and an Aquapainter. The center is colored with So Saffron. To finish, I sprayed them with Shimmer Mist and cut them out with scissors. Using Basic Pearls, I dressed up the center of the flower with the adhesive back pearls in 3 different sizes. They are adhered to the base with stampin dimensionals.

For the sentiment, I stamped “Happy Birthday” from On Your Birthday in Chocolate Chip Craft ink and heat embossed with Clear Embossing Powder. Using the sponge dauber, I sponged Pretty in Pink ink around the edges and matted it onto Chocolate Chip card stock. Underneath the sentiment, I used more of the Basic Pearls.

“Birthday Wishes” Game Spinner Card

I think this Take a Spin stamp set is perfect for making birthday cards. Young or old, anyone would enjoy getting this type of card and spinning it over and over again. I know I do it when I’m making the cards!

The card base is So Saffron, layered with Chocolate Chip cut to 4″ x 5 1/4″. Then, I used Nursery Suite Specialty DSP in the So Saffron/White pattern cut to 3 3/4″ x 3″. Above that, across the front of the card, I used 1 1/4″ Striped Grosgrain in Pumpkin Pie.

I used Stampin UP Markers to color the stamp (direct to stamp), then colored in some of the images with the Markers as well. The colors I used were: Early Espresso, Marina Mist, Wild Wasabi, Real Red, Pumpkin Pie, Regal Rose, and Daffodil Delight.

The game board is layered on a 2″ square of Marina Mist card stock, and I used the Game Spinner Hands from the Occasions Mini Catalog. For more tips and tricks on using the Game Spinner Hands, see this card I made.

Finally, the sentiment at the bottom is from So Happy for You from the Sale-a-bration catalog, stamped in Chocolate Chip ink.
