This month everyone received the wonderful February Ribbon Kit
from Really Reasonable Ribbon
, filled with the perfect trims and ribbons for those cheery Springtime projects. Lots of great pastels to match up with some amazingly beautiful glitters, flocking, stamps and embossing powders from Sparkle N Sprinkle. If you love using great glitter and embossing powders, check them out. I absolutely LOVE their color choices and the stamps leave the perfect images.
I have 3 new card creations for you today.
My first card is is made up of stamps from set 417, Cocktails II
, perfect for party invitations or scrapbooking that last year’s luau you had or whatever you might come up with. Tropical drinks remind me of great tropical colors and the ribbon in the February Ribbon Kit
has a perfect shade to go with all the wonderful tropical colors I used on this card. I used Spellbinders Circle dies
to showcase the appetizers and words and I used the Watercolor Pencils
to get those soft iridescent colors.
On my next card, I used a stamp from the stamp set 413, Daddy’s Princess
The Becca with Tulips stamp is so cute and to frame her, I used a new embossing folder that cuts and embosses. I added Buttercup Petal
and Green Apple
Embossing Powders in the debossed areas of that design. The trim that I used is the beautiful ribbon from the February Ribbon Kit. Copic markers were my choice for coloring the Becca stamp. Copics are so easy to color with and the range of colors to choose from is awesome.
The third card is a really unique card and it’s definitely able to be mailed. It is called a Fan Fold card and is so cute. The stamped images are again from set 413, Daddy’s Princess
. The images are stamped and embossed with Black Detail EP and then colored with my favorite, Copic Markers
. I used the Scor-Pal to score the cardstock. The card front utilizes a punch that combines flowers and leaves. I used Copic markers to color that and added a little Sparkling Snow Glitter
as an accent. The oval shapes were made using Spellbinders Oval sets
. And check out that ribbon, it's shear, it's feminine and has flowers on it too. Look for that ribbon in the February Ribbon Kit. And it goes great with the card and the card colors. I am working on a video to show you how easy this Fan Fold card is to make, so check back for that.
All my cards use Tear-ific Tape
for adhering and layering of cardstock. I also used the Versamark Pad
in my embossing.
