Free as a Bird

Handmade card created with Stampin' Up's Free as a Bird stamp set.  #Stampin' Up, #Stampin' Gala, #Water coloring, #Birthday, #Thinking of You

I wanted to create a card that can be used for many occasions for my newsletter this week.  I am in need of a card to send out for gifts that I received during the holiday season.  I think this card will work perfectly.  

The image is from the Free as a Bird stamp set.

I stamped the image on Shimmery White card stock with Stazon Ink and water colored the image using a Water Painter.  If you haven’t tried water coloring, it is so easy and fun with our Water Painters.  Here is a closer look.

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.

Next, I created a Congratulation card.  I punched out the heart and a flower from the Pleased as Punch DSP and also stamp the flowers using the Thoughtful Blooms.

I simply stamped the same flower across the top on the inside of the card.
