Cake Soiree

This is for a Stampin Up card swap.

I wanted to make a 50th anniversary card but also a card that could be used for a birthday.
So I used gold accents on this card.
The color is Rich Razzleberry.

Whisper White card base 4 1/4/x/5/1/2
Rich Razzleberry Mat 4 x 5 1/4
Heavy Whisper White yardstick 3 3/4 x 5

The background is created with water colors on thick Whisper White Cardstock.  After the water color dried I splattered gold water color on the card front.

All stamp and die cut elements are from The Cake Soiree bundle.

Ornamental Flower BD

When this Altenew stamp set arrived in the mail, I could not wait to put ink on it.  For this first time with the set I used the colors that came closest to what is on the back of the package.  They just happened to be all of the new ink pads colors that were also in my mail box.  Gorgeous!

Happy birthday foil and alcohol ink

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge:  Backgrounds

Jessica Frost Ballas made a masterfull video involving alcohol ink and foil.  I was just blown away by the backgrounds she created.

Here I've used Yupo paper, Ranger Alcohol Inks and foils from different manufacturers as well as the Happy Birthday MFT die.
I got two cards from one cut.

Cactus fold-a-long

This is such a fun and easy card.
All of the dies are included in the Sizzix Cactus Fold-a-Long die set.  The sentiment from Hero Arts is stamped in VersaFine and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.
The argyle paper, so perfect for a cactus, is from Making Memories and has been in my stash for a very long time.  The sun glasses are die cut from Stampin Up black glitter paper.  I went around the pink cactus with a darker pink ink to make her look a little sunburned.
