Make A Tasty Trucks Birthday Card

Tasty-truck-birthday-card-1Today's  birthday card project is one of my favorites with the adorable Tasty Trucks (Stampin' Up! Sale-A-Bration set)  and the Pop of Pink Specialty Designer Paper.  You can earn the Tasty Trucks stamp set for free with your Stampin' Up! order of $50 in product. It is so much fun to color these little truck images. This one is watercolored with our Classic Stampin' Pads.

The designer paper features Basic Black, Whisper White, Melon Mambo, and Metallic Gold.  It is awesome and I love using it on all kinds of cards!

The video below shows the how-to  for this card.  It's a little longer than usual but it shows my watercoloring process.  Hope you enjoy it!

Tried and True Technique... Embossing for Cardmaking!

Make a Bold and Lovely Birthday CardThere's no doubt about it: the embossing technique is still a great technique to use in cardmaking.

Have your tried embossing?  Do you remember the first time you watched the "magic" as the heat tool melted the powder to make your card just pop?

Today's card has a bold birthday statement that is kicked up a notch with the heat embossing technique.  This card is also the "sister" to the masculine Makeover Monday Valentine card from earlier this week seen HERE.

Let's take a look at the easy process for this card in today's video tutorial.

Here are the products that were use to make this card...You'll LOVE that Falling in Love paper!

 

 

Embossing is an easy technique that makes any cardmaking project extra special.  Must haves are the Clear and White Stampin' Emboss Powders.  For a really special touch, try our metallics in gold, copper, and silver.

Makeover Monday Video Tutorial- Make A Card for A Guy

Birthday-card-for-a-guy-aFor today's Makeover Monday we have a birthday card for a guy that gets a real pop from the Cable Knit Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.

Going to be quick post...a little tired and emotionally exhausted from spending the majority of the last 24 hours at the hospital with my mom.  Thankfully, she's home and doing fine.   I'm ready to relax, give thanks, and put my feet up!  To those of you in my Facebook group that knew of this, thanks for your prayers!

So, here we go with the video that inspired this card.  The technique is replaced with the designer paper!
