Here are a few more cards to hopefully spark your creative side.
This is the anniversary card I created for my daughter & her hubby's 2nd anniversary. The card base is Riding Hood Red. The white piece was cut using Tim Holtz Alterations die "Brackets" and then embossed using the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder by Stampin' Up!. The die cut pieces were all cut using various sized of the Labels Collections framelits by Stampin' Up! The flower image is by Penny Black and I believe that's one I picked up at Hobby Lobby. It was inked using Stampin' Up! markers in Riding Hood Red and Old Olive. The edges of the white die cut layers were inked very lightly with Riding Hood Red. The sentiment is from the Stampin' Up! set: Whimsical Words (Sale-a-bration set from 2012) and is accented using 3 black adhesive rhinestones. The ribbon is by Stampin' Up! also.
Another birthday card! The card base was embossed with Stampin' Up!'s Hound's Tooth embossing folder. The ribbon is by Stampin' Up! and is in Raspberry Ripple - one of the "in colors" for 2012 - 2014. The images are all from the Stampin' Up! set Everything Eleanor. The label was stamped in Basic Gray ink and cut out using the Apothecary Accents Framelits while the flowers were stamped in Raspberry Ripple and hand cut. The label was popped up using dimensionals and the flower centers are the large pearls from Stampin' Up!.
Here's the birthday card I made for my sister back in January. The card base was in Riding Hood Red (what is it with me and red card bases lately?). It's embossed using Stampin' Up!'s Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder. The layers were cut using the Labels Collection Framelits by Stampin' Up! The image layer was from Naturals card stock and the layer was lightly inked using Basic Gray ink and a touch of Crumb Cake ink. Southern Splendor image (lady in hat) by Stampabilities. Background stamps by Stampin' Up!: French foliage - writing, droplets & postmark. Happy Birthday by Stampin' Up!, Elementary Elegance (sale-a-brations 2012). All images were stamped using Basic Gray ink.
