Amazing Copper Party

Stampin’ Up never ceases to thrill me with their Sale-a-Bration offerings…and 2018 is no different! This set is called Amazing You and is free with any product purchase of $50. There’s even a set of matching dies called Celebrate You that are available, too! I thought this color combo of Island Indigo and Pool Party was perfect with the bold splash of copper embossing powder, foil sheets and ¼” trim. I am so happy with this card!

Painted Harvest – More Than Sunflowers

I was so excited perusing through the new Holiday Catalog…and immediately fell in love with the gorgeous hand-painted style of the sunflowers in the Painted Harvest set. I simply HAD to have it! Imagine my happiness when I started seeing people posting samples with non-traditional colors!?! I decided to try a combo using bright, fun, summery colors…and I am thrilled with the final outcome!

After stamping my flowers, I began to assemble my card. To my surprise, I realized I used colors in which I did not have any matching ribbon. So, I pulled an oldie-but-goodie technique out of the bag and colored the White Bakers Twine with Berry Burst ink! I stamped a flower in both the corner of the envelope and the inside layer. Try not to smile when you look at these flowers!

Sugarplum Rose Sympathy

Today’s card has an emphasis on one of the new In Colors – Sweet Sugarplum. It’s a soft color that lends ease to the eyes for something as sad as a sympathy card.  This is another card I’m using for a swap, so thankfully it’s not needed right now for any recipient.  The subtle Designer Series Paper is from the Blooms & Bliss pack, featured with the Blooms & Bliss Suite on pages 138-139 of the Annual Catalog. I fell in love with all the colors in the paper – Blushing Bride, Island Indigo, Mint Macaron, Rich Razzleberry, Sahara Sand and Sweet Sugarplum. Simply beautiful!

Winkin’ at the March Club Card

My super fun group The emBOSSing Queens met for our stamping club this evening. I was so excited to share the gorgeousness of Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Brush with them – it is beyond description!  I have been seeing a lot of cards with this layout, so please don’t think I’m taking credit for it. My Pinterest board gives it away!  This card has the stamp embossed in gold on watercolor paper, then I used the Aqua Painter medium brush to watercolor in Rich Razzleberry and Old Olive. After those colors were dry, I went over it with the Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Brush.  I just love all the sentiments available in the Rose Wonder photopolymer stamp set, too. If there’s only one stamp set in the Occasions catalog that you can afford to buy, definitely make it this one! Be sure to stamp your photopolymer stamps on a Stampin’ Pierce Mat. That will give it the extra cushion that photopolymer stamps don’t have (if you look at clear mount stamps and wood mount stamps, you’ll notice there’s a foam pad).  What you’ll get is a nice, crisp image.  We end the evening with a matching envelope with the leaf outline on it. It’s a nice touch that brings it all together.
