Card Ministry

Card Ministry met at church today. We made birthday cards for the seniors in our congregation. I have some retired cardstock colors and used them for these projects.

You've Got This

Some friends and I had a "Coloring Tea" a few days ago and it was such fun! We had afternoon tea, scones, fresh fruit and tea sandwiches. Then, we colored with Copic markers. Lots of fun girl talk and sharing ideas on how to color this lovely flower. Thanks Donna for being such a wonderful hostess:)

I also want to share this new ribbon. In the catalog it looks pretty, but in person, I discovered that you can pull apart the weave and shape it! Oh my goodness, is that cool or what? In the picture below, I pulled apart the top edge and left the bottom as it is on the roll. Can't you just see endless possibilities with this?

Happy Birthday Thinlit

I have two cards to share with you today, both using the Happy Birthday thinlit. I used the coordinating stamp set, Happy Birthday Gorgeous for the insides and envelopes. Using thinlits is such a breeze now that Stampin' Up! has the new adhesive sheets! And... don't even get me started on the gorgeous Whole Lot of Lovely designer series paper. It's even prettier in person;)

Floral Statement

These cards were both colored with Copic markers, and on the thanks card, I brushed a bit of Wink of Stella over the black letters. It gives such a nice subtle shimmer. I stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento ink on Copic Blending Card.

Happy Birthday Thinlits

Ever since detailed thinlits became popular, I've been trying different things to adhere them to card fronts. I tired the SU Multipurpose glue applied as sparingly as I could, I tried applying it with eyelash glue applicators, I tried sponging the glue on the back, and I tried the fine tip glue pen. Each of those methods left bits of glue on the outside of the thinlit, and using the glue eraser on a detailed die cut does not work that well for me.  I am FINALLY HAPPY with an adhesive choice! No reservations, no exceptions. The Multipurpose adhesive Sheets work like a charm for me. It's simply a sheet of double sided adhesive. You peel off one side of the backing, place your card stock on it and run it through the Big Shot. Out comes your die cut, ready to peel off the backing and stick it on! In a package there are of 12 sheets of 6" x 12" adhesive sheets.
