Simply For the Birds…

By With No Comments

janclub1I shared a quick photo of this card on Instagram last week – a quick photo of a quick card! This clean and simple card uses Stampin’ Up!’s For the Birds set, coloured with Stampin’ Write Markers and blender pen. I used the blender pen to get a less intense, more blendable colour effect….but this set will be FANTASTIC with the new Blendabilities alcohol based markers when they are released (which is not soon enough for me….LOL). Not sure if you can see it, but there’s also a touch of embossing as well – I thought the cross stitch needlepoint look could also double as “kisses”…

If you like the look of the dry embossing but have not yet gotten the Big Shot, Stampin’ Up! has introduced a new device, the Texture Boutique Embossing Machine. It’s like a Mini Big Shot. (A Little Shot??)  This lightweight, portable device is perfect for Embossing. It’s going to appear in the NEXT annual catalogue, but there is a limited supply available NOW. Please contact me if you’re interested in getting your hands on one while supplies last – at $36.95, if you add in three embossing folders and you’ll also get a free Sale-a-Bration item!texture boutique

One final note – if you’re a member of my Stampers Club or a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator in my “Eh” Team group, you should have received an invitation to the Beta phase of the YamStampsMore Members Only site – if you did not see it – please let me know and I will resend it.
