Aurora Borealis Background 2

Did you see my SAVI Sunday Episode 29 video and post from a couple days ago?  I made this really cool background mimicking the Aurora Borealis.   Be sure to check it out to see how it is done.  Such a cool affect with an easy process. 

I had a scrap piece of Whisper White card stock that I did a test on with the coloring technique.  Well, I loved how it came out so much, I could not let it go to waste so I made another card.  


Card Details:

  • Night of Navy CS base 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 scored at 4-1/4 on long side
  • Whisper White CS (1) cut at  2-1/2 x 5-3/8 and the other 2-3/8 x 5-1/4
  • Color and stamp on the 2-3/8 x 5-1/4 Whisper White CS and adhere to other piece
  • Adhere DSP to card base. DSP from Boho Indigo Kit and  measures 2 x 5-3/8
  • Then adhere your colored/stamped & matted image
  • On scrap Whisper White CS approximately 3/4 x 2-7/8 or whatever size fits your words, stamp words, flag end and add to card with Stampin' Dimensionals
  • use Chalk Marker to add starry sky
  • add some Rhinestones to add some sparkle

SAVI Sunday Epidsode 29 - Aurora Borealis Background Technique


I just love how this card turned out with the streaks of color and slight hues of Bermuda Bay and Rich Razzleberry.  Seeing the Aurora Borealis is definitely on my Bucket list!  Do you have a bucket list?  What are some of the things you would like to see or do?

While coloring the background, it is going to look like a mess and like it does not make sense.  But trust me, just keep going and it will all come together at the end. 

Watch how I create the background in my SAVI Sunday video and then catch all card dimensions and supplies below. 


Card Details:

  • Basic Black card stock base cut to 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 & scored at 4-1/4
  • 2 pieces of Whisper White CS cut to 4 x 5-1/4 and 3-7/8 x 5-1/8
  • To add an inside, another piece of Whisper White cut 4 x 5-1/4 
  • Sponge on colors for background in long streaks using a Sponge Daubers
  • Stamp tree images in Memento Black Ink
  • Add stars with Stampin' Chalk Marker
  • Adhere layers together with Stampin' Seal adhesive

Life Is Beautiful Stamp Set

Hi there.  

Life is Beautiful... what a great name for a stamp set.  I think it is quiet a fitting reminder for today, well, really for this year.  I feel we need to be reminded during these trying time that life is beautiful, we just need to see it.  

I just love this card and all the colors.  I participated in a Team card challenge and this submission was made by a fellow Demonstrator, Mary Ann Rositer.  I love how she lets the Pretty Peacock card base remain as much a part of the focal color as the Plaid Tidings Designer Series Paper.  Very nice job.  


Now, because I only receive a photo of all the card challenge submissions, I do not have the card in front of me.  I am going to take a guess at the basic sizes of what she cut.

  • Pretty Peacock card base is 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 scored at 4-1/4 on the long side.
  • DSP 3 x 4
  • Gold Foil 3-1/8 x 4-1/8
  • Whisper White for tree, 3-3/4 x 2-1/2
  • Pretty Peacock CS mat, 3-7/8 x 2-3/8
  • then you need Whisper White piece for the words and label die

Here is imagery from Stampin' Up! showing a few more examples.  You can click on the photo to bring up larger.

In Good Taste with Pink Accents

Hello again.  The weather is just beautiful outside so I have taken a couple of days to get some pressure washing done on my deck.  Which means, I have a lot of staining coming in my near future.  I am hoping to get that all in before some rain moves into the area. 

Here is another project I made with the In Good Taste Product Suite.  I shared the other one yesterday... there is a link below or you can scroll down on my website to the next post.  

I really do like how this one came out with the Rococo Rose flowers and strip of DSP!  I said in my previous post, I just love the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper!  


Card Details:

  • Gray Granite CS base 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 scored & folded at 4-1/4
  • In Good Taste DSP cut 4 x 5-1/4
  • Stamp leaves on above piece in Mossy Meadow
  • In Good Taste DSP strip cut 2 x 4
  • Green leaves die cut in Pear Pizzazz (bottom piece) and Old Olive (top piece) from Poppy Moments dies
  • Wood elements attached with glue dots
  • Stamp flowers in Gray Granite, color with Rococo Rose Blends and fussy cut
  • add flowers with Dimensionals
