There are No Mistakes in Stamping …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I’m going to share a cute card that I created from a “boo boo” that I made during my Color Your Season Class on Thursday night.  On our first card we stamped the floral image and colored it, on the third card we use two of the dies to create some layers …. however, I cut the die shapes out, out of my floral image Oh my …  so I created a form of the eclipse card!!

Can you see the beautiful layering? From a boo-boo it turned out pretty cool … lol.  My card front it popped up with the dimensionals, the second layer is adhered directly to the base of my card and the center is popped up with the Stampin’ Dimensionals as well… giving this card a very unique look.

It was created on Whisper White cardstock and was stamped in Momento Ink using the floral image from the Blended Seasons Stamp Set. I used the New set of Watercolor Pencils to color in my image and the blender pen to give it a more watercolor effect. Our class also used the Stampin’ Blends and Aqua Painters to create cards with this bundle and the new Watercolor Pencils (they are amazing) this whole bundle is amazing!!

Our colors of the Watercolor Pencils were Gorgeous Grape, Night of Navy, Granny Apple Green and Garden Green. Oh yes, and Crushed Curry for our flower centers.  Simply color just like you did as a kid, then use the Blender Pen to soften the look!  After layering the pieces I added the new Glitter Dots to the card to take up just a little of the white space.

See … there really are no mistakes in stamping, just opportunities unfolding!! Hope you enjoyed todays card and that it inspires you to create outside of the box. Or at least, not to throw your boo-boo’s away!!

Thanks for checking in on my today, tomorrow I will share my “Sneak Peek” into the holiday catalog with you.

Have yourself an awesome day!!

Soar Above the Rest …

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

Yesterday I shared a trio of cards from our 2016 Holiday Stamping Retreat. Today I’d like to share a picture that I took during our retreat …

green-lake-balloon

Hmmm … why would I show that? Well, if you are a follower of my blog, you know that I spent last weekend with my downline, fellow demonstrators and Stampin’ Up! We did stamping, celebrating and …. Exploring the NEW Occasions catalog!!

Well … I can’t show you that right now, but I can give you a sneak peek, and when I do you will totally understand the correlation between the two!!

Oh wait … that’s not it either! Are you catching the “theme” of these photos yet? I am excited to introduce to you a Sneak Peek of the  “Lift Me Up!” bundle …

I can’t wait to share this awesome bundle with you … Isn’t this awesome!!  A fellow demonstrator created this card, many cards we displayed so that we can get a good look at the new goodies!

Thanks for dropping in today~

Hope your day finds you “Soaring Above the Rest!”

Star of Light Trio of Cards …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

First let me say “Happy Veterans Day” … a big THANK YOU to all our current and past military men and women who put their lives on the line, and those who sacrificed their lives so that we can enjoy the freedoms here at home. I U.

Today I want to share 3 beautiful cards that we made at our Annual Holiday Stamping Retreat featuring one of my favorite stamp sets from the Holiday Catalog … the Star of Light stamp set and Thinlits.

At Retreat and all my stamping events …. it is my mission to show the versatility of the stamp sets or bundles. Here we went from a simple card to beautiful elegance …

star-of-light-trio

Let’s begin with the center card, created using Elegant Eggplant and Wisteria Wonder. Simple but pretty and it highlights the stamps, ink and greetings with just a touch of bling to draw your eye to the focal point of the card, the star.

The card on the left uses Pool Party and Island Indigo a fun color combination turned elegant when we sponged the background and used the Silver Foil paper for our star, topped with a beautiful die cut. (This card was cased from a fellow demonstrator) I wish the photo would have reflected the silver so you could see how stunning it really is. We also used the new Metallic Enamel Shapes on the card which works so well with the Silver Foil paper … this was one of our “All attendee Gifts”(also known as Pillow Gifts as they get a package of goodies on their beds as a Thank You for joining us)

Our last card on the right seems to be everybody’s favorite. It was really quite simple to make, but so elegant when done in Very Vanilla and Basic Black.  The Enamel Shapes were also used on this card – the package comes with both Silver and Gold.  The designer paper we used comes from the Annual Catalog called “This Christmas”. It’s a specialty designer paper because it is a little thinner than our normal designer paper… but you get more!!

star-of-light-trio

I hope you enjoyed today’s card share, I would love it if you would please “LIKE” this post at the bottom if you did, and then tell me which one is your favorite!! The key ingredients to make these cards are listed below.

Thank you for spending a part of your Friday with me …

I hope you have a marvelous day!
