Scrapbook Sunday Birthday page

Here's the page that I created with the Stylized Birthday stamp. Look for other posts using this stamp for a 3D project and a card...coming in the future.

This is an 8" x 8" page. I like the bold colors and high contrast.

This is a card that Eileen sent. Isn't it unique? It folds flat to go into an envelope, but when you take it out of the envelope it opens into the shape of an X so that it stands by itself and the portrait is suspended in the cut-out area.

Layering ovals Framelits would work well to recreate this card.

Thankful Thoughts Greeting Card

This is the second project that I created with the Thankful Thoughts stamp set.

I've been watching some Jennifer McGuire You Tube videos about glitter application. I just had to do something with it.

Stampin' Up! only has Dazzling Details, Gold and Silver glitter. Since they didn't have the colors that I wanted to use, I used Art Institute glitter. I've had it for years, so I don't know if they still have the same colors.

I sponged Elegant Eggplant around the edges of the card and it was too dark, so I sponged craft white over the top to tone it down.

Thankful Thoughts, Thank you card, Stampin' Up!, Stamp with Trude,

Here are the products that I used:

Sweet Sugarplum cardstock
Whisper White cardstock
Very Vanilla cardstock
Gold Glimmer paper
Stitched Shapes framelits
Butterflies Thinlits
Fluttering Embossing folder
Basic Black Archival ink pad
Thankful Thoughts stamp set
Art Institute glitter- Royal Wink #24, Dubonnet #6, and the green label is missing so I can't tell you the color and number on that one.
Glue Dots
Big Shot
Suddenly Stickers adhesive

Thankful Thoughts Scrapbook Page

Hey, it's Sunday! I decided to make a scrapbook page for Scrapbook Sunday ☺. It's been quite awhile since I created a Scrapbook page for Scrapbook Sunday.

I am trying something new. I decided to grab a stamp set that I hadn't had a chance to use and create a scrapbook page, a 3D item and a card.

Today I am sharing the scrapbook page. It would be great to give someone as a special thank you for a gift. Snap a photo of yourself with the item, create the page and send it to the gifter!

Love the colors of this card and the die cuts from a Tim Holtz die set.

Jeannie has an old hymnal that she uses for background papers. I think that's a great idea. It wouldn't be an archival paper but most people don't keep cards forever anyway.

Stampin' Up!s Wild About Flower stamp set could be used to create a similar card to this.

Tuesday Tutorial # 90 High Tide

I always like lighthouses, so I was happy to see a new one in the spring Occasions catalog. However, it wasn't one of my first purchases. There were so many other stamp sets that I wanted!

Finally now, I have the stamp set and I am starting to play with it. This is the first card that I have created with it and I also created another card for my monthly demonstrator get-together.
