Guess I am in the mood for birthday cards....still celebrating my sister's birthday :)
My very good friend Dianna Richards made this card...............thanks girl! She used the VINTAGE WALLPAPER EMBOSSING FOLDER on 2 layers for this card. The colors are POOL PARTY, CHOCOLATE CHIP and WILD WASABI...very awesome together!
Take note of the MARKERING TECHNIQUE used on the birthday cake. Color with your Stampin' Up! markers on the stamp....then huff on the stamp so it gets moist....then stamp on your paper. A fun technique!
Have a great day! Lori :)

Did you know that my Stampin' Write Markers are 9 years old? I have had to replace a couple of them because the tips were worn out (my favorite colors that get used over and over...) But the majority of my original purchase markers are still going strong!
These markers are a tool that I can't live without, just like the Color Coach.
So do you want it all????? Does your wish list have the markers on it?????
THE STAMPIN’ UP! ® MARKER/CARDSTOCK CLUB
I will team you up with three other stamp-a-holics to form a Marker/Cardstock Club. Each of you will be the hostess for a “M/C Club Workshop” on an agreed upon schedule (i.e. every month or every other month) and order the complete set of markers with the storage case plus one package of assorted cardstock from each of the color groupings. The cost per person is $52.43 for each workshop – this includes shipping and tax.
Payment will be due to me by the 15th of each month. I will be responsible for placing the order and distributing the markers.
The hostess (each month) keeps the case, one set of markers with matching cardstock and, because the workshop meets the $150 minimum, also receives all the hostess gifts of a workshop. The other three each get a set of markers with matching cardstock.
Here’s what you’ll have at the end of 4 workshops:
In Color Markers (10 colors)
In Color Assorted Cardstock (40 sheets, 4 each in 10 colors)
Brights Collection Markers (10 colors)
Brights Collection Assorted Cardstock (20 sheets, 2 each in 10 colors)
Subtles Collection Markers (10 colors)
Subtles Collection Assorted Cardstock (20 sheets, 2 each in 10 colors)
Regals Collection Markers (10 colors)
Regals Collection Assorted Cardstock (20 sheets, 2 each in 10 colors)

What a great way to get your supplies a little at a time! If this is something you would like to do, please email me.
See yesterday's post for more ideas from our stamping meeting. This is what Julie brought:
This is the DOUBLE EMBOSSING Technique that Wendy also used yesterday. The designer paper is BEYOND THE GARDEN...yummy colors for summer time! Notice the saying...it is done with markers so that you can use 2 different colors. When you do the marker technique don't forget to "huff" on the stamp before you put it on the paper. That helps get the markers moist!
Can you see the tiny pearls on the center of the butterfly? Love that tiny detail...really makes it pop! The butterfly is the BEAUTIFUL WINGS EMBOSSLIT. You get 5 sizes of butterflies from that one embosslit.
Dianna mailed this to me....love the patriotic theme! And take a look....it has the DOUBLE EMBOSSING technique too. It is a popular technique right now! She used the TOP NOTE DIE for the white cardstock. She also did the marker technique for the flag stamp called LAND OF THE FREE.
Have a great day! Lori :)
Do you have your own copy of the new catalog yet? Let me know...I can help you out.

This is one of the STAMP CLUB projects from last week. I am really happy with this project...love the look of it.
The colors are BAJA BREEZE and CERTAINLY CELERY. I used the TULIP FRAME EMBOSSING FOLDER to get that "frame" look around the edge of the card.
I don't think you can tell from the photograph, but I did use the WHITE SHIMMER PAINT on the hydrangea. Here is what I did:
Use the markers to color the flower. I first used BAJA BREEZE on the flower and then used a darker color (MARINA MIST) on the edge of the flower and some of the center points.
Use CERTAINLY CELERY on the stem and leaves and also OLD OLIVE to give some definition on the leaves.
Use a SPONGE DAUBER and WHITE SHIMMER PAINT and dab it all around the hydrangea. It will turn your dauber "blue." Use a second dauber for the leaves/stem part. That one will turn green.
Then stamp it on the WHISPER WHITE CARDSTOCK. I actually wanted to use the CHAMPAGNE SHIMMER PAINT...but for some reason that bottle is missing from my stamp room! Ha...wonder where that could have gone? You can see the shimmer of the white when you are looking at the card in person...but the champagne color would have been better in the photograph!
To make that ribbon all "scrunched" up...I used a piece of SNAIL on the WHISPER WHITE CARDSTOCK. But after the fact....I would RECOMMEND using STICKY STRIP instead. I think that will hold it better for a longer amount of time.
HINTS for scrunching the ribbon. Just start from one end and fold and pinch the ribbon as you go. I snipped the ends of the ribbon to give it that "v" look.
Then for the finishing touch....add a tiny PEARL on the ends of the ribbon.
The stamp set is called BECAUSE I CARE. It is a hostess level 1 set.
This card could be easily used for so many different occasions. I am thinking a feminine birthday card, a get well saying, Mother's Day, sympathy, thinking of you, just because....it really can go for anything!
Have a great day! Lori :)
Click on the SHOP ONLINE button at the upper left to order any of these products.
I do love this set. This was one of the first ones that I "had" to buy with the new catalog in July.
I used the markers to color on the big stamp. Old Olive and Not Quite Navy are the colors. Remember when you use the markers to color on the stamp...then give it a "huff" before you stamp it on your paper. That will make the image more wet!
See the dazzling diamonds on the little "not quite navy" flowers? I think it is a little tough to tell in the picture. The tearing technique is one that I forget to use...but it is so quick and easy.
A little button and some linen thread add just the right touch!
Have a great day! Lori :)

Have to share this great card with you. It is done with the marker technique.
Marker Technique: Color directly on the stamp with the markers. I like to start with the lightest colors first. After you are done with all the coloring, then you need to "huff" on the stamp to "remoisten" the ink from the markers. Then stamp it on your cardstock.
The white texture is the SQUARE LATTICE EMBOSSING FOLDER. This embossing folder has been cut out to have that smooth spot.
The stamp set is called WATERCOLOR TRIO. It is available in the clear mount or the wood mount.
