Snowman for Ian

This is a birthday card for my grandson.  He decided he wanted a snowman birthday party.  We live in Missouri and the winter here has been exceedingly warm.  It is weird to be 70  at times in  February.

The design for this card came from Splitcoast Stampers.  It is called a Z Box Pop-Up card.  It was easy to make but suggest you watch the video for placement of the layers inside the box.

The carstock all comes from Paper Temptress.

All the white on the card is cryogen white so it has some shimmer to it.  The black eyes are
Onyx Mica Metallic.  The touch of orange for the nose is Poptones Orange Fix.  All the snowflakes are Aquamarine Mica Metallic.  The happy birthday is Lapis Lanzuli.  Finally the ovals for the base for the Ian and 4 is Light Blue Basis.

Sales at Paper Temptress


Hi all!  Happy Sunday.  There is a special  on mica metallic and vellum is  going on at Paper Temptress so when I was deciding on my project it just seemed perfect to showcase  a couple of the sale items.
 
The base for this card is Neenah classic Laid. I have been around for a while so this is no longer available but I think the Baronial Ivory Linen would work well.   The dark blue layer is Lapis Lazuli Mica Metallic.  I wanted some contrast so the strips are Serpentine Mica Metallic. The amber Mica Metallic was good for the wording.
 
I wanted a layered flower to set things off.  Layers of Mother of Pearl Vellum did the trick.  In the picture below you can also see the shimmer in the mica metallic.

Another Birthday Card


I wanted to see what I could do with one type of cardstock.   This whole card is done with Neenah Ivory from Paper Temptress .    I cut the flower out and colored it with Copic markers.  I used a Misti alignment tool for stamping the sentiment.  I could stamp the sentiment numerous times in exactly the same spot with the Misti.

One last Christmas Card


I am in love with this Stampin' Up set.  It is called Star of Light and the matching die is Starlight Thinlits.  The inside says

The light the shepherds saw that night
THAT LIT THE WAY FOR THEM,
still guides the hearts of all who seek
THE CHILD OF BETHLEHEM

I think the words in the set also sold me on this set.

Mickey Mouse Birthday

This is the first birthday card I made for the little girl of my nephew.  I wanted something that had some dimension to it so this is what I settled on.  All the paper is from Paper Temptress.

The base for the card is Spirit Red Feltweave.  I wanted the base under the Mickey Mouse to have some sheen to it so that is Silver Lustre

The rest of the bright colors came from the Pop Tones Line.  This line is so great because the colors are all so vibrant.  The red for the name is Red Hot Pop Tones.  Mickey Mouse head is Black Licorice Pop Tones.  The pink for the bow is Razzleberry Pop Tones.  The Yellow is Lemondrop Pop Tones.  and the blue is Blu Raspberry Pop Tones.
