Sale A Bration and the Occasions Catalog

Birthday blooms isn't one of my favorite sets from the Occasions catalog! I love the images, the font on the greetings, and how easy it is to watercolor! I simply stamped with my SU archival black inked pad, then watercolor end with blushing bride, watermelon wonder, old olive, mossy meadow and a hint of hello honey and crushed curry. Although it's hard to see, the roses are all accented with the gorgeous new Wink of Stella glitter brush pen!
Thanks for looking!

Happy Fourth!

My friend Mary and I love to get together to stamp and create whenever we can. Unfortunately, it isn't nearly often enough! Tonight we created some Fourth of July garlands to hang in our homes. Here's one of the ones I did.  

Hope you like it! Have a great holiday weekend 😊

Sketch Frenzy Friday

Well, another sketch frenzy Friday is here! I hope you'll play along with us at For my card today I used my favorite new designer series paper, Painted Blooms. This paper is SO beautiful that simply mounted on cardstock with a greeting added and you've got a gorgeous card. Add the Painted Petals stamp set, which coordinates, and it's even more beautiful! I combined both for my card today. I used daffodil delight ink for my flowers and ribbon along with some whisper white and pacific point cardstocks to create my card. Have a great weekend!

Hostess gift--little bit of stamped art

Last week, I held a workshop for one of my Stampers and wanted a non card type of hostess gift. I happen to love the stamp called Love is Kindness from the Stampin'Up! Occasions catalog. It's perfect for using Blendabilities, too! For this project, I stamped the image in memento tuxedo black on two pieces of whisper white cardstock. Then, using my new pink pirouette blendabilities, I colored the tulips on both cards. Next, on one of the cards, I colored in the remaining portions of the image--wild wasabi blendabilites for the leaves and stems, the lightest of the crumb cakes blendabilites on the newspaper and then for the shadowing around the entire image, I used the lightest of the soft Sky Blendabilities. On the image where I only colored the tulips only, I fussy cut each of the flowers out. Then, I put the colored side of the flowers onto my Stampin' pierce mat and using the large ball end of my stylus, I went over the back of the flowers in a circular manner. This made the flowers curl a bit. Next, I cut some tiny pieces of dimensionals and adhered them to the back of the flowers then placed them directly over my fully colored image---the second image I stamped. Then, I adhered my fully colored image with the 3-d flowers on a piece of soft sky cardstock and placed it in a little dollar store frame. It's a quick, cute project that's a great hostess gift or gift just for giving! Thanks for stopping by 😊
