Mazel Tov

My nephew, Zach celebrated his Bar Mitzvah last weekend.  I was so excited when I saw the Stampin' Up new set Jewish Celebrations because it was perfect timing for me to be able to make a beautiful card.

I used the Midnight Muse paper and ink and also the new Illuminate ink.  I am very happy with the results.  I also pulled out the Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  I got it several months ago but nothing seemed to work.  I love this great product and know I will be using it for new cards I will be making the next few months.

I know it has been way too long that I have posted.  Tomorrow I will be showing you how to make a customized card.  I needed to make a card for a student just accepted into medical school.

I am not a Stampin' Up Consultant but I love their products.  I ordered also recently some fun new products and can't wait to make some cards using them.  Also, as soon as I can, I am going to order the new Christmas products...  So exciting...

New Year Card

Well, I was late with my Christmas Cards so I decided to send out New Year Cards instead.  This was one of the designs that I sent out.  I made this card with two thoughts in mind.  I wanted to submit a card for the Created byhand Challenge (Old with the Old/Flower Die Cuts), and for a Happy New Year card.  I put the lighter colored paper in Tim Holtz' Textured Flourish Folder.  The flower was also made using four small flower dye cuts.  I put stickles around the border of each layer of the flower.  And because it needed more color and sparkle, I added a brad to the card.
