Retiring Painted With Love Suite

I am sad that the Painted With Love suite on pages 18-19 of the Occasions Catalog will be retiring on May 31st. It’s so cheerful and colorful…and can easily be used any time and not just during Valentine’s Day. I made this for a special someone and it came together just how I planned it in my head. The pop of gold hearts on the Specialty Designer Series Paper are accented perfectly with the random heart die cuts. I am very pleased with this one!

Petal Passion Blends

I must admit that I felt intimidated by the new Stampin’ Blends alcohol markers.  But now I can’t get enough of them – they are so easy to work with. I relaxed in front of the TV and colored in the beautiful flowers on one of the Petal Passion Designer Series Paper sheets and the vibrant colors are gorgeous with this black and white paper! The DSP makes 6 full card fronts, so I thought it would be a perfect opportunity to try out different color schemes. I wanted the focus to be on the flowers, so I chose a small sentiment. To make it pop a little, I added a black banner underneath that I brushed Wink of Stella on for a little sparkle.  I love how these turned out and I can’t pick a favorite – I love all of them. Relaxing and fun!

Epic Rainbow of Sneakers

Today I got my hands on the Stampin’ Blends…and couldn’t wait to give them a try. Definitely a learning curve, but one I’m willing to take the time to master! Below is an assortment of adorable 3” x 3” cards.  I used standard Whisper White for the stamped piece, but decided to use the Thick Whisper White for the card base. It really makes a difference.  I wanted to give several Blends colors a try and thought the sneakers would be fun for my club member thank you cards (I like to give a thank you to each of them with every order). I feel like Epic Celebrations isn’t getting the recognition it deserves…it’s a darling set and I can’t wait to make a card with the headphones and guitar! It’s part of the Sale-a-Bration going on right now, so the only way you can get your hands on this  set is with a minimum purchase of $50 and the stamp set is FREE!

Hers and His Baptism Cards

Two very special people at my church committed their lives to Christ and no card can ever express the joy we all feel, but I wanted them to know I love them and I’m so happy for them!

Fresh Watercolor Birthday

I’m part of a swapping group called #imbringingbirthdaysback and I needed to make a card to send to one of the participants in Canada. Since it’s out of the country, it’s best to try and stay away from bulky cards. I decided to make a watercolor background and stamp the flower from Artistically Asian right onto it. It’s so far out of my comfort zone since I am all about dimension and layers. I wish I could merge these two cards into one – I love the bolder watercolor background, but like the look of the other one with the Copper Trim wrapped around 3 times. I stepped it up with a few random In Color Enamel Shapes and some Wink of Stella on the flower. I also decided to heat emboss the sentiment with Copper Embossing Powder on the lower right corner, but it’s difficult to see in the picture.  Can you spot the new products?  I’m super excited about all the new goodies!  I also love this color combo of Flirty Flamingo, Fresh Fig, and Copper. I think I’ll be using this combo again!
