Peaceful Place Birthday

Last week I spent a very enjoyable afternoon stamping with a dear friend. We had fun sharing all of our new SU! goodies. She had recently ordered the gorgeous set Peaceful Place. It is on my wishlist so I was excited to ink it up and create a masculine birthday card for my Uncle.

I enjoyed watercoloring this with mainly new and returning colors...Mossy Meadow, Granny Apple Green and Balmy Blue.

After watercoloring the image I adhered it to the panel of Mossy Meadow Cardstock and ran the two layers through the Big Shot using the Subtle Embossing Folder. I just love this nice bit of texture it gives to my watercolored images! It doesn't show up really well in photos, but take my word for it...the Subtle EF really is a must have!

I finished off my card with a sentiment from the Very Vintage stamp set rather than one of the great sentiments that came with the Peaceful Places set because I didn't think about stamping any of the sentiments while stamping with my friend.

Accented Blooms Birthday

Today I have a card to share that uses mainly all new items...but since I needed a birthday card and the Accented Blooms set doesn't have a birthday greeting, I had to go to a favorite retired set for that. I just love coloring these pretty flowers! I used my Aqua Painter and several of my favorite bright, cheery colors including my newest favorite...Gorgeous Grape. I apologize for the blurry photo...I already had sent the card off before I realized.

After watercoloring the flowers I ran the piece through my Big Shot using the Subtle Embossing Folder...I really love the look it gives to the stamped image. I also used the Tufted Embossing Folder, which is my absolute favorite new embossing folder on the Gorgeous Grape layer.

If you look below the Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon, you can see that the bottom edge of the Basic Black piece has some stitches created using the Stitched Labels Framelits. The Accented Blooms set also has a few smaller, decorative images in it besides the main floral and sentiment stamps. I used one of them on the punched piece (which was embossed in White EP) and also to decorate the inside of the card.

Thanks for visiting today :-)
