Love the tree and deer dies in the Card Front Builder Thinlits Dies.  They really do build a beautiful card front.  The little gold moon also popped out of a card front builder die.

Did you notice the yummy gold foil plaid paper?  That's the Year of Cheer Specialty paper that will be available with the release of the Holiday Catalog September 1, 2017.  And the ribbon?  That's the Gold 3/8" Metallic-Edge Ribbon available now from the Big Catalog.

Hey, Chick Handmade Card

Hey Chick Handmade Card

Hello Friends,

Don't ask me why, but my sister and I always greet each other with "Hey, Chick".  So it seems appropriate that I would send her a handmade Hey, Chick Card.  I went with a green, gold and black theme since St. Patricks Day is days away.  The Hey, Chick stamp set is probably the hottest Sale-a-bration stamp set of 2017.  That's just me guessing.  I don't know for sure.  If you are new to the scene, Sale-a-bration is the time of the year when Free product is offered for every $50 spent!  But time is running out because it all ends on March 31 or WHILE SUPPLIES LAST. Get all the juicy details here.

Hey Chick Stampin' Up!

For today's card, I employed two stamping techniques-Paper Piecing and Heat Embossing.  I heat embossed  "Hey, Chick" and the wild doo chicken with gold embossing powder.  Paper Piecing is just what it sounds like.  Stamp, cut and piece.  I stamped the chicken a second time on Old Olive polka dot designer paper  and cut out just the body and the head, minus the head feathers.  There was no way that I wanted to cut all the wild feathers and the skinny little feet and legs, so I simply colored those in place.

Today's fun extras are the note paper stamped with the Writing Notes stamp and the handmade envelope made with the fabulous Envelope Punch Board.


Hey Chick

I just love the look of embossing on a darker card stock.  The shiny gold on the Old Olive really pops.

You've Got This Handmade Birthday Card & Envelope

You've Got This Handmade Card

Hello Friends,

Today's one layer card is simply beautiful and easy to make.  Send a ray of sunshine with this handmade card that marries two popular stamping techniques-Heat Embossing and watercoloring.

For my card base, I used a 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" piece of Shimmery White Card Stock scored at 4-1/4".  Love that you can watercolor on the Shimmery White Card Stock and that it shimmers.  Next, I stamped my flower from the You've Got This Stamp set  with Whisper White Craft Ink to frame my birthday wish and  I heat embossed it with White Emboss Powder.  This makes a lovely soft, white outline for coloring.

Watercolored Flower with bling

Next, I washed Daffodil Delight and Old Olive ink inside the outline with my Aqua Painter.  Hint:  Take care to color multiple shades of color.  Did you notice the fabulous bling?  After my flower was dry, I painted over my flowers one last time with my Clear Wink of Stella Brush.  Wow!


Handmade Card Tip

Here's another tip.  Add a pop of interest to you one layer card with panels of color on the inside.  As an added bonus, the interior card stock works to restore shape to a watercolored and/or heat embossed card.

I carried the white embossing over into the inside of my card and to my handmade envelope which I made with the Envelope Punch Board.  My Birthday Stamps are from the Better Together Stamp Set.
