Age Awareness

Today’s 2-4-Tuesday is the Age Awareness Stamp Set from the Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog. When I first saw this set I just knew I had to have it. Of course,  sitting there this morning with it, well, my mind was… blank!

Fortunately the courier arrived just at the same time with another box of goodies from Stampin’ Up! which included the wonderful Filigree Frame Textured Impression Embossing Folder.

WOW, this is going to quickly become my “go-to” for a quick card as it creates such a beautiful effect, requiring little else besides a sentiment and perhaps an embellishment or two.

This next card was the result of a total accident. I’d actually punched some Petite Petals from the Sweet Taffy DSP for the previous card before realizing if I wanted to give it to a male, well, flowers weren’t going to cut it. Hence the Silver Glimmer Paper stars cut from the Star Framelits.

Looking at the DSP I wished I hadn’t punched the flowers thus began attempting to “replace” the flowers. Didn’t take long to conclude this was NOT going to work but could in-fact work for me in another way.

The flowers were then each finished off with a silver sequin from the Frosted Sequins available now in the Holiday Catty with a small Rhinestone Basic Jewel in its center to complete it. I couldn’t resist then adding more bling to the left-hand corner of the card!
