First Frost Delight

IMG_3654

I love everything Christmas!  The traditional colors are my favorite!  The Frosted Floral Suite showcases a stunning color combo in the Holiday Catalog!  My favorite product in this suite is the gorgeous pearlized  Frosted Floral Specialty Designer Series Paper! The designers put together the perfect balance of Blackberry Bliss, Blushing Bride, Gray Granite, Merry Merlot, Mint Macaron,  Mossy Meadow, Night of Navy, Pear Pizzazz, Pineapple Punch, Powder Pink, Soft Seafoam, and Tranquil Tide.

I love the deep jewel tones of the Blackberry Bliss and Tranquil Tide.  I started with those two colors and then started building my palate.   I added a touch of Mint Macaron, Blushing Bride, and Gray Granite.  This is a Christmas Stamp a Stack card for next weekend.  I made a video to show the tips and tricks to this card.  But, it really is a simple card to make.

You know I had to add a touch of Wink to this card!  Rhinestones also add some bling along with the Braided Linen Trim!  I love how these non-traditional colors make the season feel cool and frosted!

Pig in a Barn

BDFA5651

This pig in a barn card turned out soooo cute!  It’s also a card that will be featured in my FREE Creative Class to Go this month!  But first, the card!!

I used the Pink Pirouette marker to color the piggy.  I then used Cherry Cobbler for the barn and barn door.  The door is color on color-the ink is the same color as the cardstock!

HBQJ1025 I love the sliders you can cut out with the Big Shot!!

Black Magic Dragonfly

img_1589

I am so happy that Stampin’ Up! has unveiled the new Water Color pencils!  So easy to use and many different way as well!  (They are so popular, that they are on backorder and will be put on “not orderable” soon!  So get yours now! Don’t worry, they are working on getting more, they just have to turn off the item number until the supply is back.

I decided to teach my club members the Black Magic technique.  Here is how we achieved this ombre look!

  1. We stamped the dragonfly with Craft Whisper White on to Basic Black. We then used the heat tool to dry.
  2. We used the Tempting Turquoise for the body.  Using the Calypso Coral on the inner most wing towards the body. Then Rich Razzleberry in the middle of the wing. It was finished on the tips with Melon Mambo.

Easy Peas!! So sweet looking too! I used the Blooms & Bliss DSP for the patterned strip.  I thought the Brick Wall embossing folder made a great background with extra texture.

Watercolor Emboss Resist

As a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator, we get this great quarterly magazine filled with tons of ideas, sneak peeks, and beautiful artwork! This quarter featured the Watercolor Emboss Resist technique!  I fell in love with it and so did my club members!

Here is the great video that shows how they did it!  I tried with watercolor paper and it soaks up the ink too much.  The Shimmery White Cardstock works best.
