Glimmer Celebrations Cards

Happy Snow Day!! We have a blizzard going on today! Work and school were closed for the day. This is the first time in years work has been closed since everyone can mostly work from home now a days. But I will take it! Although snow days with kids are not what they used to be, haha! The days of lounging in front of the tv all day are gone. Now it's mommy, lets play this, mommy lets do that, haha!! But it's still nice to just be able to watch the snow in front of the fire in my loungy pants instead of being at work!

My cards today are some quick cards I put together using the SAB glimmer paper. Love this stuff!! For the baby card, I used the glimmer paper to die cut the word happy. It's so pretty! The paint stripes are from the Happy Celebrations stamp set. I stamped them in Peekaboo Peach and Flirty Flamingo. I stamped them twice, once in regular strength and then just stamped again. The Pool Party piece was stamped with the circle from the set. Then I added "new baby" and some enamel shapes. It's a little more clean and simple than I usually do but I like it. It was hard for me to not add more to all that white space on top but I don't think it needs anything else. What do you think?

The next card is a birthday card. I embossed the Happy with the embossing folder than stamped the splatter image on top of that. I did it a couple of times, enough to cover most of the word happy. Then I just put ink on the birthday sentiment and stamped it several times on the top and bottom of happy. The full sentiment is birthday to you but I just made sure I only added ink to "birthday". I didn't want ink on the other words. Then I added some triangles in Emerald Envy and added Pumpkin Pie enamel shapes. This time, I just added a large piece of the glimmer paper as part of the background.

These 2 cards came together pretty quickly and are a great way to use the glimmer paper. They would look great in other colors!

Ok now it's back to sitting in front of the fire for a bit while the little one naps. Hopefully I can get some crafting time in later. Be sure to stop back on Thursday for the Artisan Blog Hop. And if you're lucky I may get in another post for tomorrow!

Stay warm!!
