Hello Gorgeous..Emboss resist using Ink Road Stamps

Hello!  Ink Road stamps recently released a beautiful 4 x 6 stamp set titled Hello Gorgeous . It is beautiful handwritten text along with a grouping of flowers. This set was also released with dies . The dies are huge and the flower grouping cuts amazing.  I decided to use a heat emboss resist technique with this set.

Birthday Card Featuring Studio Katia Kobi Bearing Gifts

Hello!  Today I created with my first Studio Katia stamp set. I fell in love with this adorable stamp set Kobi Bearing Gifts  and the coordinating dies  from the May release .  So many amazing stamps and stencils in this release!  I decided to stamp Kobi out and color the image with copic markers. I used earth tones for Kobi and rainbow for the gifts. I wanted this cutie to be the focus of the card, therefor, I decided to keep the background simple. I used the new Lawn Fawn Itsy Bitsy Poka Dot Background   and my favorite paper release from Lawn Fawn Really Rainbow paper pad to create a rainbow background to compliment the gifts.  For the Happy Birthday sentiment I used Concord & 9th Enjoy it All  stamp set heat embossed on a sentiment strip cut down from Neenah  80 lb solar white card stock.  I hope this gives you inspiration for your next birthday card creation!  Check out the video below: Have an awesome day!

It is unique and includes members of our families that often get left out in the stamping world.  The first cards using  The One With All The Stamps I wanted to use as many of the stamps as possible. I decided to lay them out in my Misti and stamp one with versamark
