I absolutely adore texture. Stampin' Up!'s Textured Impressions Folders produce defined and crisp texture when zipped through the Big Shot with card stock. The Manhattan Flower Die (used above) is unique and beautiful. I have seen so many gorgeous applications with it. Click to see a previous sample I created with the Manhatttan Flower using a stunning watercolor technique.
I made a set of birthday cards using Whisper White (always a "wow" factor when embossed) and bold Stampin' Up! In Colors (Crushed Curry, Bermuda Bay and Melon Mambo). These cards can be whipped up in 10 minutes or less which qualifies it for my Quick Cards (or Stamping 911) category. Want to see more quick cards? Click here.
RAK=Random Act of Kindness. I have received some beautiful cards that I wanted to share. I treasure each one and cherish the thought, time and creativity it takes to prepare a handmade card.
