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!!

Simply Sunday: Christmas Season

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

So what did you think of the sneak peeks? Oh my … this is an awesome catalog, and I have one coming to you! I’m trying to wait patiently for my pre-order to come … then I can play!  Meanwhile ~ We have the exciting “Share Your Season” Promotion and I have another beautiful card to share with you today!!

Today’s card celebrates the Christmas season (Thursday I shared my Autumn card using the watercolor pencils and blender pen). It’s time to share how the fabulous Stampin’ Blends markers work with this stamp set and coordinating framelit dies.

I began with the middle sized frame in the die set and cut it out of Whisper White. I then stamped the spray of Holly near the bottom (fits right in) then turned it 180 and stamped it again.  When I colored the leaves I started with the Old Olive Light first then just added a dash of the Old Olive dark on the center line of the leaf and then went back over with the Light to blend it in.

A touch of Real Red on the holly berries and Daffodil Delight on the sprigs and your coloring is complete! I added just a hint of the Wink of Stella to give it a little glitz.

The card base is Old Olive cardstock and I created a focal point with a swatch of 3″ x 4 1/4″ Under the Mistletoe Designer Series paper and a 3 1/4″ x 4 1/4″ Real Red mat. Then our greeting was simply popped up onto the card and your done!! Simple and Sweet … no hassle, just a fun and easy coloring project.

So here are the two cards I made to far with the Blended Seasons Stamp set and Stitched Season framelits, and if you like these …

You won’t want to miss the amazing cards that we will be making (includes envelopes) in my Color Your Season class. I still have a couple spots left. RSVP today: 262-334-1009

Autumn Card with Watercolor Pencils …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

We are past the halfway point of the week and on the road to the weekend!!  Wooo Hoo! I can’t wait to share this beautiful card with you today … I created this card for my Stars Team meeting this past Saturday to highlight the beautiful Color of Seasons …

Because Stampin’ Up! is also offering a brand new set of Watercolor Pencils as a coordination product with this bundle I just had to play!! Who doesn’t love the ease of the Watercolor pencils when you want several different colors on your Autumn leaves?

Well … let me just show you, a picture is worth a thousand words (or should I say oooooh and aaaaah!!)

I stamped the images with the Momento Ink and began with the Garden Green Watercolor pencil. I used it along the vein in the center of the leaves, then I just colored in some Crushed Curry, then some Cajun Craze and finally a little Cherry Cobbler near the edges.  Each leave was a little different.

Once I was done with the Watercolor Pencils … I used my blender pen to move and blend the color.  Wow … the pencils are definitely artist quality pencils, they blend so easily and looked beautiful in spots where I hardly blended at all!

I did have to fussy cut my leaves out, but I must say that while sitting around the table with a group of friends (my Stars Team members) and just chatting & catching up, before we knew it, they were all cut out!!

After that we added just a touch of the Wink of Stella … and we did that because it really brought together the colored leaves and the die cut leaf. (The die comes with the bundle!)

Our greeting comes from the Blended Seasons Stamp Set (see below) and was punched out using the Pretty Label punch! Popped it up with the Stampin’ Dimensionals and the leaves too. The background was done with the Pinewood Planks Embossing Folder … the autumn leaves look so good against it!!

I can’t stop playing with this bundle … it can be used all year long and for any occasion (Even Weddings – there is a bell with a coordinating die)!! Stampin’ Up!’s® Blended Seasons Stamp Set, coordinating Framelits™ Dies, and Watercolor Pencils are perfect for every season of creating! Plus, save 10% when you buy the stamp set and Framelits in a bundle! But don’t wait—these exclusive products are only available until August 31 while supplies last.

Because the Blended Season Stamp Set and Stitched Season dies are “Limited Time Only” offer … I am hosting classes that will highlight the “Seasons”.  The first class has filled so I am adding another class on Thursday the 9th of August …

Your cards will include the envelopes … All you need to bring is your favorite adhesive.  Three spots have already been reserved so don’t wait / Contact me right away to reserve your spot.  Call 262-334-1009

Thank you so much for sharing a part of your day with me …

Have a wonderful day ~
