Simply Succulents – Makeover Monday

Welcome to Makeover Monday (a couple of days late!)

 

Thank you card created with Stampin' Up's Simple Succulents stamp set for Makeover Monday.  #Stampin' Gala, #Julie Gilson, Stampin' Blends Markers, #Handmade  cards

Today’s card is a “stepped up” version of Sunday’s Simple Sunday card.

To step it up, I added several elements.  Immediately, you will notice the sentiment that I placed on a die cut in the center of the card.  I also added a few extra succulents as well as some stamping in the background.  The stamp I used for the background is the “speckled” stamp from the Sweet Ice Cream stamp set.  I used Sahara Sand ink and stamped off first.  

One other addition to this card is a piece of Sahara Sand DSP in the background.  It can be found in the Neutrals 6 X 6 DSP pack.  It will be retiring in just a few days.

Look What I Created with the Seaside Notions Stamp Set

Seaside Notions is especially pretty when heat embossed with Gold Embossing Powder.

This stamp set offers many images that are open line images that are perfect for heat embossing and coloring.  I used Petal Pink Stampin’ Blend Markers to color the images.

I also love the look of heat embossing directly on Gold Foil Sheets.

The theme is carried over to the inside of the card.  I left the sentiment off so that the card is suitable for many occasions.

I have a FREE PDF TUTORIAL for this card included in yesterday’s Weekly Newsletter.  If you missed it, I have included a link to my newsletter below.

Good Morning Magnolia – Makeover Monday

Welcome to Makeover Monday!!

Greeting card created with the Good Morning Magnolia stamp set for Makeover Monday.  #Stampin' Up, #Stampin' Gala, #Handmade Cards, #Heat Embossing, #Alcohol Markers

Today’s Makeover Monday card has just a few differences than yesterday’s Simple Sunday card.  

To start with, I stamped and die cut the image on a piece of Basic White that measures 2-3/4 X 3-1/2.   After coloring the image, I adhered it with Dimensionals, on a piece of Basic White that was embossed with the Subtle EF.

I added extra sentiment die cuts in Seaside Spray.  

Finally, the Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder is added for the background.
