Colorful Birthday Card - Using The Stampin Blends

I am loving these new markers. 
They make my stamp images stand out and make the color in my cards pop. 

With this card design I couldn't choose just one color. It was hard to even narrow it down to these 4 colors. But I love them none the less. 

My New Years Resolution is to be more active in my Stampin Up business and also send out more cards. I make a lot of cards but end up keeping them. I sometimes can't part with my artwork and I keep it and no one gets to see it but me. 

That is actually the worst thing I can do. So I have made myself promise myself that I need to send out more cards. I have all my birthdays planned out for the year and I'm ready to clean out my stash. 
Enjoy the pictures below.

Fall Leaves Card - Using The Stampin Blends

I love how this card came out. 
My goal was to make a simple fall type card with the same design as the simple cat card. That card seems to be very popular in my blog. I did go for the same design and stamps but I had to incorporate the new Stampin Blends Markers. 

These markers are easy and fun to use. They allow you to add your own creative style to coloring. What I like best is you don't have to be a real artist to master coloring with these markers. 

I didn't want to add too much detail to the leave however I wanted them to stand out. I simply colored them in the lighter shade then just outlined the inside of the leaf. I then went back over and blended with the lighter color and it gave it enough pop to stand out on the card. 

Card base:  4 1/4 x 11
score: 5 1/2
Whisper White CS: 4 x 5 1/4
Extra White for stamping

Hope you enjoyed!

Fall Sunflower Card

Now if I had it my way I would hoard this paper and no one can use it or see it or anything! Its is simply very beautiful paper and I hate to just waste it. These flowers are just too pretty to cut up. 

But of course I had to cut them up and make this beautiful card. I used the same care design as the pumpkin cards. I really like how this design helps the designer series paper stand out. 

This is a perfect thank you card. What a great card to give to someone that is hosting Thanksgiving. Its a great fall theme card. 

Card Base: 11 x 4 1/4
score: 5 1/2
Very Vanilla: 4 1/8 x 5 3/8
Designer Series Paper: 2 1/8 x 5 3/8

Hope you enjoyed!

Fall Pumpkin Card

I love this card. 
I especially love the new Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper (144613)
I love that it is very bright for fall designs and it's so much fun to work with. 

This card is the same as my Halloween Pumpkin card. I saw a similar design on Pinterest that was an old post and thought it was a good idea. So with that I simply cut out from the designer series paper to create this card. 

Fussy cutting is my favorite so I didn't mind to much. But actually its is very easy to cut everything out. Not as complex as some other designs. 

Card Base: 11 x 4 1/4
score: 5 1/2
Very Vanilla: 4 1/8 x 5 3/8
Designer Series Paper: 2 1/8 x 5 3/8

Hope you enjoyed!

Fall Gift Card Holder

I really enjoyed crating this card design. I'm sure it has been used before but I love the concept of have a gift card holder within the size of a standard card. It makes it easy to secure your gift card instead of leaving it lose within your card. 

And what makes it even better is the coffee cups. I ended up picking these cups on my gift card holders because a coffee/drink gift card is one of the most used cards. I know it's pretty easy to buy a Starbucks gift card and give it to someone. 

But of course this card design can be used for any occasion and any type of gift card you decide to give. 

Card Base: 8 1/2 x 5 1/2
score: 1 1/4 and 4 1/4
Very Vanilla: 2 5/8 x 5 1/4
Designer Series Paper: 2 3/4 x 5 1/4 (outside)
1 1/2 x 5 1/4 (inside)
Strip: 1/4 x 5 1/4

Hope you enjoyed!
