I had so much fun making the Mother’s Day card that I decided to make more cards like this.
For these cards, I used the Scripty Happy- and Scripty Thanks-dies from Lawn Fawn, placed them onto white cardstock and ran them through my die-cutting machine. On the birthday cards, I stamped the “birthday” from Happy Happy Happy in Versafine ink.
For each of these front panels, I took another piece of white cardstock of the same size respectively and put double-sided adhesive on it. I glued the two panels together – now the “happy” (or “thanks”) part exposed the adhesive and I sprinkled glitter on it. In all cases, I used Martha Stewart Crafts Glitter – the colours are purple sapphire and charoite (on the purple cards) as well as turquoise and lapis lazuli (on the teal cards). To make the glitter stick, I also gently rubbed it onto the adhesive.
From the stamp set Fab Flowers, I stamped some flowers on coloured cardstock. I die-cut them with the coordinating dies of the stamp set.
I wanted to make one of the birthday cards a little bit whimsical, so I stamped the elephant and the birthday cake from Elphie Selfie:

I have not been feeling well the past couple of days and so I was unable to submit the rest of the homework for the Online Card Class “Sparkle & Shine” – but that is okay, I’ll just post it here :-). For Day 5: Paste and Mousse, I made this card:
On a piece of white cardstock, I applied Nuvo Embellishment Mousse (in colour Pacific Teal) through a star stencil with a palette-knife. It would probably have sufficed, if I let it dry for 30 minutes or so but I wanted to be on the safe side and let it dry for a couple of hours.
In the meantime, I prepared the front panel by cutting one of the larger stars from Lawn Fawn’s Puffy Star Stackables with my die-cutting machine. On a stripe of teal cardstock, I stamped the sentiment “I thank my lucky stars for you” from the stamp set Lucky Stars in Versamark ink, poured white embossing powder on it and heat embossed it. I glued the teal stripe onto the front panel just below the die-cut star.
I adhered foam tape on the back of the front panel and glued it onto the cardstock with the teal stars. As a last step I wrapped around blue twine around the front of the card.
I hope you like this card. Thank you for stopping by!
Hello! For Day 4: Shimmer, Pearl, and Flakes of the Online Card Class “Sparkle & Shine” (I skipped homework for Day 3 :-P), I made an autumn card. I know it is a bit early for autumn, but I thought a beautiful foliage scene would be a great way to incorporate Perfect Pearls:
For this card, I used Lawn Fawn’s Sweater Weather stamp set and the Scripty Thanks die. I made the background using Distress Inks (colours: Tumbled Glass, Peeled Paint) and an ink blending tool. I then stamped the tree from Sweater Weather in Lawn Fawn’s Walnut ink. I took the foliage of the stamp set and inked that with Versamark and gently brushed Perfect Pearls (colour: Perfect Gold) on it. The rest of the foliage was stamped with Lawn Fawn ink pads in the colours Sunflower, Carrot, Lobster, and Freshly Cut Grass.
I hope you like the card! Thank you for stopping by!
