STAMPIN' UP! BROADWAY BIRTHDAY MASCULINE CARD

Today my youngest son, Ethan, turns 18.  It's bittersweet for Mum.  I am excited for him, to gain the independence of driving himself wherever he wants to go, and to make plans for his future.  As any mother whose children have grown will know, the prospect of "an empty nest", and not being needed for much, is rather sad, though.  Thankfully Ethan plans, after a period of travel at the end of the year, to remain living with me for a while yet.

Here is the card I made for the birthday boy:

STAMPIN' UP! FIRST FROST BIRTHDAY CARD IN GREENS

Today's share features the beautiful new First Frost bundle, and my favourite designs from the Frosted Floral Designer Series Paper pack.  I normally make this birthday girl's cards in blue, but decided these gorgeous papers just had to be used.

The DSP is the star of this card.  The only stamping is the sentiment (from the Darling Label punch box), and one little flower in Tranquil Tide.  I have embellished the flower with a tiny snowflake, from Santa's Workshop enamel shapes, and a rhinestone coloured with my dark Soft Suede Stampin' Blends marker.




Here is a close-up of the cluster of foliage, and the stamped and die-cut flower:

STAMPIN' UP! FIRST FROST THINKING OF YOU CARD IN BLACKBERRY BLISS

Oh my goodness, you just HAVE to see the First Frost bundle of products, and Frosted Floral Designer Series Paper, in Stampin' Up!'s Holiday Catalogue!  A gorgeous stamp set containing floral and leafy images, and lovely sentiments, pairs with awesome dies that cut out almost every image.  The papers are shimmery, and just heavenly.

Here's the result of my first play with these products.  I chose to use a sentiment from the Darling Label punch box, as I was looking for something smalish, to fit amongst the stamped flowers.




... and here is a different view, so you can see the shimmer of the paper:

I'll have another card, using very different patterns and colours of paper from this same DSP pack, to share on Tuesday.  It is a birthday card for a friend, and I will wait until I've given it to her, to share it on my blog.

Thanks for visiting my blog today.  I hope you are having a great weekend!
