White Embossed Rose Wonder

This pretty swap card was created by fellow demonstrator, Nancy Endwright. She embossed her rose image in white. I am not certain, but it looks to me like she colored the image in using a blender. It’s a look between water-colored and blended.

It has been awhile since I broke out the heat tool and embossing powder. Waaaay back when I first started stamping 20 years ago – it was the heat embossing that got me hooked! I heat embossed every image I owned (which wasn’t very many) with gold embossing powder. The transformation was amazing. It was powerful! I felt like a professional card making factory! lol! Then…I discovered Stampin’ Up! and all the wonderful color coordination that they do for us and I got hooked on inks!

For your convenience I have provided a list of most of the supplies that Nancy used in creating her swap card. Click on any product image below to be taken to my 24/7 online store to purchase what you need to create this card. Thanks so much for stopping by!

Everyone Loves Cupcakes!

Hello Stampin’ Friends! I’m sharing another great swap card with you today! This one was created by fellow demonstrator, Toni Tessler. She also used the Sprinkles of Life stamp set whose purchase supports the Ronald McDonald House Charities. It’s a win/win deal! You get a fantastic stamp set and the RMHC gets more funding for their great cause!

I love the little touch of sparkle on the frosting compliments of Wink of Stella! In my supply list I did add the It’s My Party Enamel Dots because I think a yellow enamel dot would be just perfect in place of the rhinestone! The banner from the Number of Years Bundle is a nice way to showcase the birthday wish, too.

When is Your Birthday?

Isn’t this a beautiful card? It is one of my swap cards but the creator either did not include her information, or it somehow got separated from the card. This card is fancied up just a little more than the one I shared yesterday, but is is still a pretty simple card and it, too, is stamped with the Butterfly Basics stamp set! I think that’s a total of three pretty and mostly basic cards that I have shared using this beautiful stamp set! Today is the last day that you can get the wood mounted version of this set at a great discount with the Weekly Deals! It’s also the last day that Hello, and Sky is the Limit sets will be available to choose as free items for sale-a-bration. The designer series paper might be available a little longer if there is still inventory. I want to get in on a little of the #imbringingbirthdaysback fun so the first 10 people to leave a comment sharing their birthday with me as a sign of their commitment to help bring birthdays back; will get a birthday card from me to help them keep their commitment! This is just a little variation of the theme as I am providing you with the birthday card! Leave your comment and I will contact you for your address when I have your cards ready! Thanks for stopping by!
