Thoughtful Branches - Simple Birthday Card

Today's card uses Thoughtful Branches again. This stamp set and it's coordinating Thinlits dies are only available until the end of this month, so you only have a few more days left to order them :o)

I used the beautiful Petal Burst embossing folder for the background. I love both the embossed look and the de-bossed look you get with this folder.

The banner comes from the Birthday Banners stamp set and the sentiment from Sweet Cupcake.

Bloomin' Love - Anniversary Card

It was my 36th Wedding Anniversary last week and this was the card I created for my husband :o)

I used the beautiful floral heart from the Bloomin' Love stamp set as the focal point. I stamped it with Versamark and heat embossed it with Silver Powder.

The banner is from the Number of Years stamp set and the sentiment comes from Teeny Tiny Sentiments.

Thoughtful Branches - With Mica Flakes

Today, I am back with another project using Thoughtful Branches :o)

I decided on another simple Christmas card .... but this time with a little sneak peek of a new product coming with the Autumn/Winter catalogue - Mica Flakes.

This is a completely new product for me, so I wasn't sure how they were 'supposed' to be used :o) .... but I thought they would look lovely as 'snow' on a card.

After stamping, I added a little glue from our Fine Tip glue pen. I then sprinkled on the Mica Flakes and just left to dry for a couple of minutes.  It worked well and the Mica is securely glued in place.

I think it adds a lovely touch ... lots of texture and sparkle :o) You also get three colours in a pack - White, Gold and Green.
