Incredible Bluebonnets

final-4

This is one creative way to use the stamps in the Incredible Like You stamp set!  I saw a few on Pinterest and Stampin’ Up!’s site-so I had to recreate it!  I used Night of Navy and Blueberry Bushel to create the bluebonnets.  To create softer flowers, I stamped twice with the inked stamp before re-inking it.  The stems of the flowers are stamped in Call Me Clover and are stamped twice as well.

I love the cascading from one side to the other to leave room for the sweet sentiment!  To make the outside base look soft and not overpowering, I used the Subtle Embossing Folder. This is a must have embossing folder!  It’s so versatile and I use it a lot!

final-5

As you can see, I used Wink of Stella on some of the blossoms to make it sparkle!

Bright Country Floral

final-2

Don’t you just love it when you are playing around with a new product and a stunning card emerges?  The 2nd release of Sale-a-bration products are availbale and this is one of the new FREE items!  The Country Floral Dynamic Embossing Folder can be yours FREE with a $50 purchase!

I was just wanting to see the amazing details that it created and then I took out my Daubers. I wanted to match the gorgeous Painted Seasons DSP (another free item/bundle with a $100 purchase) colors, so I chose Daffodil Delight, Poppy Parade, and Mango Melody.  Just a light swipe with the inked dauber is all you need!  I accented the flowers with Call Me Clover for the leaves.  I love how it turned out!

final-1

I also added Wink of Stella clear to the roses for a touch of bling!  I didn’t have any Poppy Parade ribbon, so I took some 1/8″ Whisper White Sheer Ribbon, a dauber, and the Poppy Parade ink to create a coordinating ribbon! Did you see the cool new punch?  You can order yours on March 1st!  They are unveiling new limited edition coordinating Sale-a-bration products to compliment your new FREE items!

final-3

It’s called the Story Label punch!  Psssst!  There is a new stamp set to coordinate with that called More Than Words!  (ok now that song is in my head!) I used one of the Layering Ovals to make a nice mat for the sentiment.

Here is the video tip on how to create your own coordination colored ribbon!

I hope you enjoyed today’s creation!  Craft on!

Waterfront Silhouette

JHFI6547 (1)

I love when the moon reflects off of a lake at nighttime.  I decided to try and capture that look with this silhouette on water color paper.

Here is how I created this card:

1.      Stamp the moon with Versa Mark and sprinkle with Clear Embossing powder on the watercolor paper.  Heat set.

2.     Start at the top of the watercolor paper using an Aqua Painter and Night of Navy ink and wash back and forth.  I made it darker at the top.  You can go back after one layer dries to add more depth.

3.     I followed up with Perfect Plum to give it the night sky effect. Let dry or heat set.

4.     Run the Basic Grey piece through the Big Shot with the Petal Garden embossing folder. Adhere to the card.

5.     Tie the Basic Grey ribbon to the card.

6.     Stamp your sentiment and cut out with the Stitched Shapes Circle.

7.      Use Basic Black to stamp the mountains and trees onto the watercolor paper.  It must be completely dry.

8.     Then stamp the water with the Night of Navy full strength. 

9.     Go back and add more color wash if needed.  I did stamp some water at the bottom with Night of Navy stamped off.

10.  Adhere to the Basic Black mat piece. Add Dimensionals to the back to adhere to the card.

11.   Use the Dimensionals to pop up the sentiment too.

Amazingly Simple

XIYS1259

Who loves to make quick and simple cards??  I do!  I made this for my Sweet & Simple class and I am using it as a SWAP for the upcoming Stampin’ Up! On Stage event!

**if you are local; I am moving the Sweet & Simple to the Thursday the 29th at 7pm!  We all need a rest from Spring Break!

The set is called Amzing You and it is a FREE item from the Sale a Bration catalog!  How do you earn it for FREE??  (and there are several other items available for FREE too!) For every $50 spent, you earn an item!  There are even great items for $100 levels too!  Click on Laura Venvertloh’s website to shop now!

I first used Smoke Slate as my card base and cut the Petal Passion DSP as a background paper piece.  I stamped the flower and colored it with the Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends pack (144603) and a Color Lifter (144608) They are going on back order soon if not already….they are very popular right now!

EHUJ3338

As you know, I am a Wink a Holic!  So, naturally I Winked the flower and added a clear Faceted Gem for the center. A quick cut out of the sentiment with the Stitched Framelits, and done!

Be sure to check out the FREE Creative Card Class to go for March! img_7385

I send the consumables to you in a cute stamp case that has the month, set, and other items to have on hand.  You get enough to make 6 cards!  2 of each above!  Plus, a PDF with color pictures and instructions to create the cards! This month will be popular!

Happy Stampin’!!

 

Birthday · Sale a Bration

Graceful peacock

I love how easy it is to make an elegant and graceful card with the Beautiful Peacock! This is one of the FREE choices from the Sale-a-bration catalog with a $50 purchase!  It is a photopolymer set which makes it easy for lining up Eastern Palace DSP.  I used Versa Mark and Gold embossing powder for the swirly part of the feathers.

Then, I used coordinating Fresh Fig and Tranquil Tide to complete the small flower details around the feathers.  Finally, I topped it off with the 1/8″ Fresh Fig ribbon!

I check my demonstrator web page a couple times a day.  Yesterday they announced that there may be a backorder on some of the Stampin’ Blends.   They have been super popular and they are working with the supplier to get more.  Here is the list of colors to purchase or stock up today!
