Happy Wishes Birthday Card

WPlus9 Happy Wishes Bundle SU 2017-2019 In-Colors Michelle Gleeson Birthday card idea

Today I created my own Designer Series Paper using stamps from WPlus9 Happy Wishes stamp set. I used the 2017-2019 In-Colors Tranquil Tide, Fresh Fig and Berry Burst along with the 2016-2018 In-Color Sweet Sugarplum. I used Clear Wink of Stella over all the Sweet Sugarplum flowers however I was not able to capture it in the photos.

The word Wishes was cut using the coordinating Happy Wishes dies. I cut it four times and layered the words to create depth.

The sentiment was heat embossed with White Stampin’ Embossed Powder.

You can see that I used a strip of the excess “DSP” I created and added it to the inside of my card.

The result is a bit outside my usual clean and simple design. I am trying to stretch myself a bit.

Thanks for stopping by!

YOU are Simply Amazing for FMS296

FMS296 Foil Frenzy Wplus9 Hand Lettered Stamps and Dies Encouragement Card idea Stampinup Stampin Up SU

I was inspired by this week’s sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches to join in the fun.

FMS296

Such a clean and simple layout provided a lot of latitude to create. I am enjoying working with the Stampin’ Up! Foil Frenzy Designer Series Paper (DSP) so I used that as my focal point.

I added a mat of Lemon Lime Twist card stock to bring the color out in the foil dots.

Love with all your Heart

Stampin Up Beautiful Bouquet Bundle Ribbon of Courage Sweetheart embossing folder encouragement card Michelle Gleeson Stampinup SU

Last night I picked up our youngest son from the airport for a last minute quick weekend trip home. I was so excited and a friend of mine said, “It is wonderful to love so deeply”. I gave her a resounding YES.

To love with all your heart is a wonderful feeling. We sat around the table and enjoyed a wonderful dinner, great wine, and robust conversation. As I went to bed, I thought how full my heart and soul felt. There is nothing like having your family around you.

My card today showcases one of the fabulous sentiments in the Ribbon of Courage stamp set. It was stamped on a heart cut with the Sweet & Sassy Framelit Dies. Then it was mounted with Stampin Dimensionals onto a piece of Calypso Coral card stock that was embossed with the Sweetheart Textured Embossing Folder.

Colors-3

The flowers and leaves were stamped and die cut using the Beautiful Bouquet Bundle. The flowers were stamped in Tangerine Tango and the leaves Wild Wasbi.

The inside of the card received some love as well.

I hope you have time to enjoy family this weekend. I know I am going to soak up all that I can.

Pals Blog Hop July 2017 – Pattern Party

Whether you’re just starting the hop, or have come from a previous Pal’s blog, you’ll find the line-up toward the end of my post to help you move along.

Stampin Up Pals Blog Hop Delightful Daisy DSP Daisy Delight Bundle Birthday Card Idea Michelle Gleeson Stampinup SU

I went square this month with a 4 1/2″ Kraft square card base. Then I added three strips of Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper, each strip is 1 1/8″ x 4 1/2″ and mounted onto a piece of Very Vanilla card stock measuring 1 1/4″ x 4 1/2″.

I stamped two daisies in Peekaboo Peach (stamped off once) onto So Saffron card stock. This created very subtle veining in the flower. With my Sponge Dauber I lightly added some Calypso Coral ink on the tips of the daisy petals. Then I punched out the flowers with the coordinating Daisy Punch. The petals were curled with my bone folder, then offset and stacked one on top of the other with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The daisy as mounted to the card with dimensionals as well.

The sentiment is from Confetti Celebration and was heat embossed with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder onto Very Vanilla card stock. A few snips with my paper snips and I had flag ends.
