Poppystamps will sponsor Die Cut Divas later this year so I was loading up on some new items to use. Can't just use the old stuff, right? - much as I love it... Absolutely could not resist the Say It Big stamp and die set from the May Poppystamps release, along with a few other items. I stamped Sending Birthday Wishes and die cut it with the coordinating die, plus some extra outlines to stack behind for dimension.
I die cut a panel of BoBunny texty paper using a recent Altenew acquisition (see another card with it HERE). Embossed it with a fab TE folder giving a lovely texture which I brought out by sponging on some Antique Linen Distress ink. Another new addition to my stash - Stitched Flowers from My Favorite Things. My friend Lin (Sending Hugs) has used this set many times (see examples HERE and HERE). Each time I resisted, until finally I ordered one (plus a few other sets...). I had fun cutting flowers from my favorite watercolor print paper! The glittery centers were cut with a die from a new Poppystamps cake set. It comes with oodles of flowers, leaves and flower centers to put on the cake along with some candles & frosting bits. It's such a great set & I'm just starting to cut all the pieces for a cake card. I had a white Sunny Studio wreath in the bits box from when I was cutting a bunch of snowflakes. I used a Copic marker to color it green to match my leaves.
This card went to Betty (created by bjk). She shared a birthday card on her special day (the 19th) and I realized I'd totally skipped over the rest of the May birthdays in my book. Luckily I still had time to get two made & in the mail but Betty's had to be late - sorry!! She did receive it finally so I'm free to share.
Here's a masculine card made using the same sentiment plus paper & ephemera from the May Spellbinders card kit. Also included a globe cut from map paper and some travel icons from an old Hero Arts kit giving it a totally different look.
This one went to my cousin-in-law Dennis with a birthday today - Happy Birthday Dennis!! He texted me that he received his card yesterday so I thank Betty for saving me from another belated card!
Thanks for stopping and have a wonderful holiday weekend if you're celebrating! And be sure to stop by NBUS 38 with your May NBUS creations!
