Emboss Resist Technique – 4th Birthday card

A beautiful little girl we know turns 4 next week and this is the card I’ve made for her.  I hope she likes it!

I’ve used the emboss resist technique for the butterflies from Priceless.  If you are on my monthly newsletter list then you will receive a tutorial on how to do emboss resist.  One of the many advantages of joining my monthly newsletter!

The close-ups below will do the card greater justice

I’ve used the colours Almost Amethyst, Lovely Lilac, Tempting Turquoise and Basic Black.  I love the textured card stock – it looks great!  I used Best Friends numbers for the number 4 and then my Lovely Lilac marker pen to write the “th”.

I also love the Stampin’ Up! Rhinestone brads … these look amazing!

And I tried a new way to use my marker pens!  I used my Tempting Turquoise marker pen to colour the edge of my grosgrain ribbon.  What do you think?  Yet another great use for Stampin’ Up! marker pens!

Thanks for looking!

Fun & Fast Get Well Wishes

I’m very slack … I have been meaning to make this card for a while. It is for a lovely friend who has had an operation recently. Except she’ll be well on the mend by the time she receives the card!

Anyway, a long while ago during a training session I had the chance to use someone else’s Paisley background stamp. Finally, I decided to use it! The rest of the card just grew from the old olive Paisley stamp on Whisper White card stock and the need for a Get Well card. Of course, Fun & Fast Notes provided me with all I needed then. I had fun with my new aqua painter, water colour paper and, naturally, I couldn’t help but use my crop-a-dile!

I really like Old Olive and Regal Rose together … and the ribbons are just fabulous in the new catalogue! Enjoy your day and thanks for looking!
