I feel like fashion and glitter go hand in hand, so for my most recent CutCardstock design team project, I combined the cutest stamp set with some of CutCardstock’s gorgeous glitter card stock.

To create the frame and highlight all that great sparkle, I the Fine Frames Cover die from Altenew that creates these really thin rectangle frames.  I cut three sets: one each from Mirrisparkle Glitter Silver card stock, Mirrisparkle Glitter Pink Sapphire, and Pow Black Glitter paper.  I then chose three that would fit together nicely around my sentiment and images on the front of my card.

I then stamped my sentiment (from an older WPlus9 set–Sparkle & Shine) on to the front of a card I made using Cougar White Super Smooth 100# card stock.  I used Versafine Onyx Black ink and heat embossed it with a holographic embossing powder.

I heat embossed the adorable little ladies from Stampendous’ Sassy City stamp set all around the sentiment using Versafine Onyx ink and clear embossing powder.  I love that name–Sassy City!

Here’s a peek at the inside…..I used an older set from Hero Arts called Many Birthday Messages.

To finish, I added the glittered frames to highlight the scene.

I love how the hint of glitter pulls together an otherwise pretty clean and simple design.  The die cut frames are great too, because you can save the rest for many more projects.

 Thanks so much for joining me today!

Old-Timey Birthday Card

(The following post contains affiliate links)

I’ve recently been trying to add more masculine birthday cards to my  collection.  The Tough Guy stamp set from Avery Elle just makes me smile with it’s vintage style.

Clean and Simple was the way I wanted to go with this card, so I started off with a “grounding spot” for my weightlifter.  I actually used the Enclosed: Sun die set from Papertrey Ink.  The card below was one I did awhile back and I’m borrowing the design from it as well.  I love how you can get two different looks from the same product!

Lately, I’ve been loving when people add little touches of white gel pen to their coloring.  You see this a lot on Lawn Fawn projects and it really makes the images come to life.  I want to try and do this more, so after coloring in the weightlifter with Copics, I added two small lines on either end of the weight just for some shine.  I’ll admit, I held my breath a little so I wouldn’t make a mistake but I think it turned out o.k. :).

I don’t always purchase the matching dies with my stamps since my Cutter Bee’s usually do the trick for cutting things out.  In this case though,  I was glad I got the die because it cuts out all the inside parts that are really hard to get with the scissors.

I stamped a small shadow with some grey ink underneath the weightlifter’s feet so he would have something to “stand” on.  This is from an older stamp set from Paper Smooches called Vogue Abode which, unfortunately,  I could not find a link for.  A grey marker line would work well for this too.
