Butterfly Wishes


 Hi Everyone!! I am making some samples to put up on display at my open house this weekend.   I thought I would share a few cards made with the new Butterfly Wishes stamp set.  This is a gorgeous stamp set and what makes it even better is that is coordinates with the Butterfly Duet punch from the Occasions Catalog.
I love when Stampin' Up! extends the uses of our punches by making them work with multiple stamp sets!
 If you purchased the Butterfly Duet punch this past spring, you are going to want to add the Butterfly Wishes stamp set to your summer wish list.

Faux Watercolor


 Hi everyone!  I am still playing around with the stamp in the Parcels and Petals bundle.  I have been making some samples with this set for a display and I am really enjoying using it! Can you tell? I have posted so many projects with it! You will be able to get your hands on it starting on June 4th in the new Annual Catalog.
Do you love these colors? I used Coastal Cabana, Calypso Coral, and Night of Navy.  














The stamp has a watercolor look all by itself, but I kicked it up a notch by brushing over the stamped image with my Aqua Painter filled with some water.  You can see the original stamped image in my hand to the left, then the finished card with the water added.












                          Take a look at my video for a step by step how to on making this card.

I hope you like it! Look through some of your stamps and see which ones you can add a watercolor look to.  And be sure to check back on June 4th when the catalog goes live.  I will have a link to the online catalog in the right side bar of this blog.  And if you would like a copy, contact me.

Customize the size of the Perfet Parcels dies

 Hi Everyone! A few weeks ago I shared a new Stamp and Die bundle called the Parcels and Petals bundle.  You can see that post HERE. The dies made a cute box, which I showed in a video.  A few of you asked me about how to make the box in different sizes.  It is really easy to do and so I thought I would make a video that shows how to do this step by step.
The Parcels and Petals stamps and Perfect Petals dies will be available in the new Annual Catalog that goes live on June 4th.  You are going to want to check out this one! The stamp set is great with lots of nice sentiments, and the dies not only cut out the box, but there are also some really pretty accent dies.  I show all the dies and stamps in the video.



You are going to really like this bundle.  The stamps are great and include a Thank you AND a Birthday, as well as other sentiments for many occasions.  The box is a nice size for Baby shower,  Bridal shower, or any sort of party favor.  By customizing the length, you can fill it with so many different treats or small gifts.  Keep your eye out for the Parcels and Petals bundle starting June 4th!

 Hi everyone!  I have a cute little project to share with you today.  Isn't this a cute photo? It is my daughter Jillian riding the carousel.  She was so nervous and so happy.  This is one of my favorite photos!  It makes me smile just to look at it.  Sometimes it is hard to put a page into a scrapbook because you just want to stare at it for a bit, so I have a way to display the page for a little longer, at least until the next photo I want to display :)
I found a giant cloths pin at Target and thought it would be fun to use to display a photo on my desk.  Sometimes I decorate the front of it with some pretty DSP (Designer Series Paper).  The opposite side has some black and white patterned paper.  When I change up the photo I often just glue some new DSP on top of the old one or display the other side.




Once I am ready to put the photo into my scrapbook, I add it to a 12 x 12 page. 
This page features the Everything is Rosy Product Medley.  This offering is only available in May, so you only have a few more days to grab it.  The Medley includes a full sized Stamp set  with a coordinating die set, a pack of 6 x 6 designer series paper that is just so darling you will love it! 2 rolls of ribbon lovely ribbon, Rose Gold foil sheets, Rose Gold Shimmer Paint, printed embellishments, rose gold foil labels/tags and some rose gold embellishments. Scroll through some of my past projects using this collection, it is just gorgeous.




For this page I used some of the smaller stamps to add some interest  to the Whisper White background.
I used Night of Navy and Melon Mambo ink. Strips pf the Everything is Rosy designer series paper line the left side. I have matted the photo page in Night of Navy and Melon Mambo.  The ribbon and floral embellishments are also from the kit.  










Check out this video that shows you everything that is in the kit.  I compare the kit contents to current products so that you can see the value of the products.

Lots of ways to use the Botanical Bliss stamps and dies

Hi Everyone! Today I wanted to share a collection of projects I made with the Botanical Bliss stamp set and Botanical Tags Thinlits dies.























These dies are unique in that the bottom half of the die shape does not cut out, but is open so that you can create fun tags with pretty images on the tops. The designers of these dies were smart in that they also created addition dies to cut out the remaining part of the image is you desired. I love that!
While looking at the set I tried to think of other ways to use the tag toppers with out cutting out the bottom half to use on cards or other projects. I decided to play around with the collection for a bit and here are some of the things I came up with.


You can watch a How To video on this card, and I also show you the Luminary and treat holders close up as well.

Using Shimmer Paint in your projects

Hi Everyone!
I am using Shimmer Paint today, making projects for an upcoming event. Have you tried it yet?  Stampin' Up! has several colors to choose from and they are all gorgeous.  This card uses Rose Gold shimmer paint, which is exclusive to the Everything is Rosy Product Medley. You can also purchase Frost White, Champagne Mist, Vegas Gold and Bright Copper. 
Shimmer paint can add a touch of elegance to a wedding card, sparkle to a snowy holiday card and whimsy to just about any project. Today I wanted to show three different ways to use Shimmer Paint on your cards and this card uses all three!
I have used the shimmer paint with a sponge to to swipe the card with the paint, a brush to add splatter, and I have also used it to ink up a stamp for the greeting.  It looks great on dark cardstock but it is also beautiful on bright cards and even a white background.  Check out the samples below to see it on a variety of colors.

 Stampin' Up! has a few different types of sponges to apply the paint.  You can also use an Aqua Painter to add splatters of shimmer paint to your projects.  


















Check out my video to see step by step how to add shimmer paint to  your projects.
 

My samples today all use the Everything is Rosy Product Medley.  This is a gorgeous collection of products, all designed to work together for easy crafting with beautiful results.  The Medley contains a lot of products! There is a full 6x6 paper stack, rose gold foil paper, rose gold shimmer paint, a stamp set, a die set, 2 full rolls of ribbon, and embellishments! It is only available in May, so don't delay.  You can see the complete kit by clicking on the links below.
