Birthday Hooray

Stampin Up Balloon Celebration Neat and Tangled Hooray Die Birthday card Michelle Gleeson Stampinup SU.jpg

Hello! I know it has been a while since I posted on my blog. Sometimes getting on the computer after work or on the weekend is the last thing I want to do.

I created this card for a young woman in my office. She is so sweet and she loves pink. I used Melon Mambo, Lemon Lime Twist, Crushed Curry and Tangerine Tango. I think these colors are dynamite together.

The balloons are from the Balloon Celebration stamp set. They stamp so clean.♥

The sentiment is from Neat and Tangled. There is a stamp set and die. Here I just used the die. While you cannot see it in the photos I went over the pink letters with Clear Wink of Stella to add a bit of sparkle.

Let’s Celebrate with CTS#261

CTS261 NEat & Tangled Falling Circles Die SU Balloon Celebration Avery Elle Banner Bits Birthday card idea Michelle Gleeson

Hey crafty friends, I have a really quick post. I created this card for the new CASE this Sketch challenge. I was over the moon excited that my card for last week’s sketch was a team favorite. Thank you CTS team! You can check it out here.

Here is this week’s sketch:

When I saw the dots/circles on the sketch I immediately thought of this Neat & Tangled Falling Circles Die. I used it upside down and now I envision champagne bubbles to help celebrate. I love champagne so I thought that was really fun.

The sentiment is from Avery Elle’s new Banner Bits stamp set. And the balloons are from Stampin’ Up! Balloon Celebration stamp set.

I had so much fun working with this sketch. I would love to hear from you; do think the circles look like champagne bubbles?

Thanks for stopping by,

Michelle

Missing You Always

A couple of weeks ago my BFF was in town for a week. With my husband working out of town it was just the two of us for the week. Oh we had so much fun.

Right after she left I was in Hobby Lobby and saw a 4 x 6 paper stack on sale that had this whale DSP. Back when we were in high school and college she loved anything with whales on it. So of course I had to get the paper stack. Since she had just left I created this card. (The sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp – Big Scripty Greetings)

This is the magic of paper crafting; being able to share how you feel to those you care about most. So join me in the #mailitmonday movement and send a card out this Monday to someone you care about.

Gentlemen’s Geometric Birthday

Stampin Up Perennial Birthday Hero Arts Sunburst Bold Print Background stamp Masculine Birthday card idea Michelle Gleeson Stampinup SU

As a woman who has two sons, a husband and works in a male dominated industry I need more masculine cards than most. It is always a challenge to come up with new cards that are creative and masculine oriented. So when I saw the new Hero Arts Sunburst Bold Prints Background Stamp I knew I had to have it. I saw so many possibilities including unique masculine cards.

This card is super simple yet has a bold impression. The base is Basic Grey card stock. The sunburst background was stamped in Basic Grey ink onto Smokey Slate card stock. This was mounted directly to the card base. The sentiment from SU Perennial Birthday stamp set was heat embossed with Simon Says Stamp Navy embossing powder onto Smokey Slate card stock. (NOTE: I did use my antistatic powder before stamping the sentiment yet you can still see stray pieces of embossing powder around the letters. I decided to go with the look for this masculine card as it went with the sunburst design. Sometimes you need to let go of perfection and just go with it.) A retired embellishment from SU Urban Underground Suite completed the card.

I thought I would enter this in the CASE this Sketch challenge #260 this week. Here is the sketch:
