Pretty Pines Birthday

Stampin Up Milestone Moments Pretty Pines Thinlits Rose Garden Thinlits Birthday Card Ideas Michelle Gleeson Stampinup SU

This card was CASE’d from Sandi MacIver. I maintained the style of Sandi’s card substitiuting Rose Garden Thinlits for my flowers and used the Milestone Moments stamp set for the sentiment.

The Pretty Pines Thinlits provide the pine details as the backdrop for the flowers.

The flowers were die cut and then mounted on Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper. I then trimmed along the outline of the die for a seamless look.

The sentiment was heat embossed in Gold.

Lovely as a Tree Masculine Birthday Card

Stampin Up Lovely As A Tree Masculine Card ideas Michelle Gleeson SU Stampinup

I need several masculine birthday cards for December birthdays. Lovely as a Tree is the perfect stamp set for a masculine card. I have been a demonstrator for five years now and I just purchased this stamp set this past summer. I believe this is one of the longest running stamp sets for Stampin’ Up! Now that I have used it I understand why it is so popular. The images stamp flawlessly.

I stamped it in Early Espresso and then using a sponge dauber blended Soft Sky for the wintery sky and a mix of River Rock (retired) and Crumb Cake for the ground. I used my Old Olive Watercolor Pencil to add some depth to the grass at the base of the trees.

The base of the card is Thick Very Vanilla card stock. The Wood Textures DSP paper stack provides the warm wood backdrop. The sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp Brushstroke Sentiments.

I hope you have a fabulous week!

Celebrate the Season for GDP#114

Stampin Up Tags & Trimmings Concord & 9th Ornamental Stamp GDP#114 Michelle Gleeson

The day after Thanksgiving we pull out our Christmas decorations, put on holiday music and begin celebrating the Christmas season. So I will kick off the holiday season on StampinMojo with this card inspired by the Global Design Project Sketch Challenge.

The sentiment from SU Tags & Trimmings was stamped in Versamark and heat embossed in Basic Black Embossing Powder on Vellum. The holly is from Concord & 9th’s Ornamental Stamp Set. I used SU Stampin’ Blends (Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive) to color the holly. I am loving coloring with these markers, it is so easy to blend the color it really makes you feel like an artist.
