Tufted Petals

watermarked3(2018-07-03-1323)

Wow!  The Petal Promenade Suite is just gorgeous!  I can picture wedding/anniversary cards, birthday cards, and so much more with the Petal Promenade DSP!  The flowers are so soft and blend so well together!  The set, Beautiful Promenade, and it’s matching Beautiful Layers Thinlits help you create stunning works of art with minimal effort!

I love that the dies include an envelope liner so your card looks even more special for the recipient!  There are so many fun shapes and images that will meet a lot of your card making needs!

I stamped the inside of the flower with Petal Pink and the outside part of the flower with Fresh Fig.  Next, I cut a 2″ by 3″ piece of Fresh Fig and ran the tag edge on each short end to create a fun tag! There are a couple of border type stamps that add flair to your creation!  I also added some Tea Room Combo ribbon tousled behind the flower. I finished it off with some Wink of Stella, a sentiment, and some leaves!

No Line Watercolor

QTCG0609

I saw the Better with You stamp set in the new Annual Catalog, and I had to give no line water coloring a try! I was having a hard time deciding on a color scheme and my friend suggested the mad bluebird!

I had never heard of them before and he was so cute!!  My water coloring wasn’t exactly no line, but I love how it turned out!

It’s super easy to create!  This will be the technique for club this month!

  1. Use a light color to stamp the image you want to color.  I used Sahara Sand.
  2. Use your aqua painter & ink refills to create the watercolor images
  3. If you want darker shading, wait for the first layer to dry completely.
  4. I did use a Stampin’ Write marker tip to define his eye and beak.
  5. I completed the look with a pearl colored with a black sharpie.

The background of the Balmy Blue is the new Subtle Dynamic Embossing folder!  It turns your card stock into textured in a flash!

Simple Garden

Do you need to make several birthday cards at one time?  Stampin’ Up!’s Designer Series Paper is perfect for bright colors, beautiful designs, color combinations, and great graphics!  I chose the Garden Impressions DSP 6×6 pack for this card!  The colors in this DSP pack are just fun and playful!  The concept designers are always on point with their color selections and use of spacing!

I cut the paper to 3″x4″ and used Shaded Spruce 3 1/4″ x 4 1/4″ as a mat color. I stamped the sentiment with Shaded Spruce on Whisper White and ran it through the Big Shot.  I used the Stitched Shapes to give it extra texture.  I used the Petal Pink Glimmer ribbon to wrap around the DSP/mat piece. Then I used Dimensionals to pop it up.

Simple Hugs

Healing Hugs 1

Wow!!  The dist-ink-tive stamps in the Healing Hugs is just stunning!  Look at the detail!! Berry Burst is still one of my favorite 2017-2019 In Colors!  I paired it up with Granny Apple Green!  (I LOVE THIS Color!) It still gives a pop of green with out being too bright!  I still love Lemon Lime Twist, but this is a new option for pops of color!

I made this card for my upcoming Sweet & Simple class next week (6/27/18 @ 7pm for my local peeps).  I did use the cross-stitch patterned stamp as a color on color image on the card base.  It needed extra depth-but I didn’t want to use the Big Shot on both cards for this class.  I hold a class one evening every month and rotate the night.  I like to have this class available for people that are new to stamping or need a quick creative fix!

Healing Hugs 2

June 22nd is the last day to get your FREE Creative Card Class to Go!  This is great for people that cannot make classes but love to create!  It gives you 3 designs with the same stamp set/bundle!

Love you to pieces

love you to pieces1

I had to have the Love You to Pieces Bundle when I saw the new catalog!  I have a few friends who have children with Autism that I would love to make these for!  I have a few other designs floating around in my head as well!  I can’t wait to get back into the stamp room!

What I really like about this bundle is the Puzzle Pieces Thinlits that coordinate with the stamp set!  Stampin’ Up! now offers Embossing Pads that turn your Thinlits/Framelits into dry embossed images!  So you can create even more with this bundle!

I used 4 pieces of 2 1/2 x 2 1/2 squares of the following colors: Real Red, Call Me Clover, Blueberry Bushell, and Daffodil Delight. I lined them up as shown below-makes for one pass through the Big Shot. how to puzzle

Boy, that close up of my clear plates makes me want to order some new ones!  Wow!

In Love with Rooted in Nature

Once again I find myself gravitating towards the Rooted in Nature bundle! The coordinating Nature’s Poem DSP makes color coordination a snap! The colors just pop off each other!

We made this card for stamp club this month. We started by random stamping the big leaves with Tranquil Tide and Grapefruit Grove. We then added the returning favorite Blackberry Bliss with the smaller leaf stamp! Just look at the details in the lead stamps!

Next, we added a strip of a subtle pattern from the Nature’s Poem DSP followed by the Blackberry Bliss Nature’s Twine. I made the ends frayed for extra texture. You just simply twist the ends to un-twist the strands. I use a piercing tool to comb it out.

The metallic leaves are cut out of Copper Foil & the matching framelits. To complete the look, we stamped the greeting with the Blackberry Bliss on the Grapefruit Grove cardstock.

Little Purple Hugs

img_0540Here is another card idea for the Abstract Impressions set!  This set has yielded at least 4 cards already!  I had to try out the Highland Heather and Gorgeous Grape!  I paired it to color the stems with Granny Apple Green and Lemon Lime Twist.  The results are stunning!

This card was made for my Annual New Catalog Open House/Customer Appreciation this past weekend. There were goodie bags for those who attended, lots of retired items for sale (I can post a list if you are interested), tons of samples using new products, and wonderful friendships celebrated! It was a great turn out!  And a dear friend took the plunge and joined my team!

My 8 year old begged to make a card with us and I was thrilled with his results! I didn’t help him one bit!  So proud!!

Here are some samples of the new In Colors:
