I heat embossed the image with Silver Embossing Powder and colored the image with the Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Blends Dark Marker.  I colored the ribbon to match as well.

The inside is simple as well.  I simply stamp the sentiment and the small heart and embossed them.

Makeover Monday – Beautiful Friendship

Greeting cards created by Julie Gilson, www.stampingala.com with Stampin' Up'! products.

Makeover Monday - Beautiful Friendship greeting cards. #Stampin' Up, #Stampin' Gala, #Congratulations, #Handmade Cards

Welcome to Makeover Monday!!  Today’s card is a “stepped up” version of yesterday’s Simple Sunday card.  

Makeover Monday - Beautiful Friendship greeting cards.  #Stampin' Up, #Stampin' Gala, #Congratulations, #Handmade Cards

At first glance, this card looks very similar to yesterday’s card.  However, to satisfy the avid stamper, several elements have been added.  First, the background is changed to a Coastal Cabana panel that is embossed with the Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder.  In addition, a strip of Coastal Cabana DSP and several Holiday Rhinestones have been added.  The images have been stamped and “stepped up” by embossing this panel with the Subtle Embossing Folder.  Finally, a fancier die in Coastal Cabana added a more elegant feel to this card.

The inside of the card was also “stepped up”.  The images are stamped at the top as well as a strip of DSP and Baker’s Twine has been added to the bottom.

I truly hope that you love this card.

Fancy Phrases Trio for Facebook Live

Greeting cards and treat holder created with Stampin' Up's Fancy Phrases stamp set. #Stampin' Gala, #Julie Gilson, #DYI, #Paper crafts, #Handmade cards

Hello, my crafty friends!  

Last night I created these “fall like” projects during my Facebook Live presentation.  If you are new to following me, I am live every Wednesday evening at 7:00 p.m. ET on my Facebook Group Page, Stampin’ Gala Stampers Group.  

Fancy Phrases was the stamp set that I used for all projects.  Julie Gilson, Stampin' Up Demonstrator, www.stampingala.com

The first project was a greeting card.  I wanted to utilize the beautiful Gold Hoops, so I hope you like how I designed this card.

The second project is also a greeting card.  Often, I don’t include a sentiment so that I can use it later for whatever need arises.

I stamped the image on Fluid 100 Water color paper with Memento Ink.  Next, I water colored the images using Water Markers, Rich Razzleberry & Mossy Meadow Ink.

I had a great time creating these projects last night for my Facebook Live presentation.  If you were not able to join me live, you can watch the replay here.  Every Wednesday at 7:00 p.m. eastern time, I create three new projects live.  If you haven’t joined me in the past, I hope you make a point of joining me next Wednesday.  You must be a member of my Facebook Group Page, Stampin’ Gala Stampers Group.

The stamp set that I selected this week is called Gorgeous Posies.  If you are like me, you most likely passed it by in the Annual Catalog.  You can find it on page 8.  There is also a coordinating kit to go with this stamp set.  It is simply GORGEOUS!!

I created two greeting cards, a “get well” and another that is perfect for a birthday or wedding.

I also used the Wreath Builder dies to create these projects.  I have a feeling I will be using this set quite often!

Forever Blossoms Trio

Greeting cards and gift box using the Forever Blossoms Bundle. #Stampin' Up, #Stampin' Gala, #Wedding, #Anniversary, #3- D

Facebook live projects were all about the Forever Blossoms Bundle.  In my opinion, this set is perfect for wedding or anniversary cards and projects.  The color palette I used is Petal Pink and Smoky Slate.   

You can check out the replay on my Facebook Group Page, Stampin’ Gala Stampers Group here!!

My first two projects were greeting cards.  The first one, I stamped the image twice on Whisper White card stock, lightly colored the flowers with a Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends Marker and then embossed it with the Subtle 3D Embossing folder.

For the focal point on the second card, I stamped the image and cut it apart to give the image a different look.
