My bestie and I just went on a craft retreat last weekend! It was so nice to have some creative time after such a busy holiday! We live in the crazy weather state-Texas! While at the retreat-we had severe weather (including tornadoes) and snow the next morning! Just crazy! But it inspired me to use this lovely Under My Umbrella Bundle!
I saw a card on Pinterest that inspire me to use the No Line Watercolor technique for the main image!i love the softness it created! To create this: use ink pads or markers to stamp the lined portion of your stamp on to paper. The. You will use a Blender pen and re-inker to color the insiders the image in the matching color. The results are stunning!
Next step is to stamp the umbrella on to the card stock color of your choice and punch it out. I added some extra bling with the new Champagne Basic Jewels! That needs to be a staple in our main catalog! Love these! Next, I added some rain drops in Pool Party on Pool Party cardstock. I cut out the stamped image and sentiment using the Stitched Nested labels. Of course I had to add Wink of Stella on the flowers!

I needed a couple of quick cards the other day and I had just opened the new Peaceful Poppies DSP pack! The colorful patterns made it so easy to add a sentiment and some dimension-then done!
I made one for a dear friend of mine that I wanted to cheer up. The other if was for my sister in law’s birthday. It’s January 4th, and it sneaks up on me every year! Birthdays around the holidays are hard. I try so hard to separate their birthday from the holiday.
To create some dimension, I ran a piece of Basic Black through the die cutting machine and then added some Silver Thread tousled behind it. I then punched out a small sentiment and adhered it with dimensionals. The finishing touch was a little Wink of Stella on the main flowers.
I stamped the poppy flower with Poppy Parade color on color for the card base. I cut the from the same sheet of DSP, but a little smaller. I framed it with a Basic Black mat that was run through with the Subtle 3D embossing folder. I finished it off with a sentiment and some Wink of Stella.

I am off to a craft retreat this weekend! I will have PLENTY to share when I am back next week! Hugs,
A special friend and customer requested an in home party! I haven’t done one in over a year! She wanted to show her friends a fun fold-so this is what I came up with! I fell in love with the Petal Garden Suite because of the beautiful rose stamp set, Graceful Garden, and the coordinating items!!
I first used a piece of Whisper White Thick cardstock and scored at 4 1/2″ and 2 1/8″. Then I folded and scored them in a valley-mountain fashion. You have to get the Petal Garden DSP pack!! Just beautiful colors and patterns!! Next, I used the Garden Trellis embossing folder and the results are just elegant!
I used the Aqua Painter to color in the images to give it a soft colored look. I finished it off with a sentiment from Wood Words and the new Classic Label punch! And you know if used Wink of Stella Clear on my flower, right?
Crafting Forever is such a fun set! All of the attendees of Center Stage were presented this set in April at our dinner. There are great pictures of scissors, brushes, a stamp, and the cute pens above! There is even a Stampin’ Up! Copyright stamp in there so you can sell your creations while complying with the Angel Policy.
I cut the card stock just a hair taller than the pens. The stamp has 3 pens lined up-so I just stamped them side by side. I did make the paper longer so I could cut off the ends that weren’t straight.
I made this card for my Sweet & Simple class this month! I love how it turned out!
I just got my box of goodies and the paste was in the box! I can’t wait to try it out!
