Joy of Noel Stamp

 I finally made my first Christmas card of the season!  And of course I had to watercolor it!  I used the Joy of Noel stamp set and made several versions in Real Red and Shaded Spruce.

I started by embossing the main image with gold embossing powder.  Then I messy painted the Shaded spruce over the image, avoiding the red berry areas. 

Once dry I went back in and re-painted the leaves and holly to darken just those areas. I then painted the red berries. 

I embossed the Joyous Sentiment with gold embossing powder as well. 

For this second version I embossed the image and sentiment in black embossing powder.  I colored the image the same way as the Shaded Spruce card. 

For this version I added some die cuts from the Joy Of Noel die set in gold foil and shaded spruce. 

On this version I repeatedly stamped one of the background images on a scrap of watercolor paper and then spritzed it with water to smudge it a bit.  

I have a full length video for these cards on my YouTube channel.

which color do you think looks best?

New Online Exclusived in the shop today!


Fun new products have been added to the OnLine Store today! These are limited time products. I am really loving the Meandering Meadows Designer Series Paper. Each design of this paper was handmade in chalk pastels by an artist, then scanned and made into the gorgeous paper. 

The colors are gorgeous, the paintings are amazing and I just love each sheet.

Amazing right? I may need to play around with my pastels today! 

The Garden Meadow stamp set and dies work with the papers to create some amazing projects. 

This is another new item I love.  If you have visited my site before, you know I love watercolor, so the sentiments in the Softly Said set is perfect for me! 

The Simply Sparkling set is sure to make some fun cards.  The sentiments for this are cute too, 'You're Soda-lightful'! 

Feathered Flight is a really nice set. It is a 'Distinctive' set, which means that the stamp is super finely detailed to give a soft image with lots of dark and light tones within one stamp. 

The Fluffiest Friends set is just adorable! The dies make it even more so with that bee-hive and other add-ons. 

There are some other fun sets and ribbon, paper and embellishments. Check out the full line at my Stampin' Up! site: Shop Online Exclusives

Curved Occasion collection of Cards


Hi everyone.  Since I still had the Curved Occasions bundle out on my desk since making the slider cards, I thought I would make a few more simple cards. These cards came together really fast. I tried to make sure to use each of the images from the set.  To make things simple I pulled out one pack of Designer Series paper and a simple color pallet to use with all the cards. 

I choose the Bright and Beautiful Designer Series Paper. I really like this paper. The colors are beautiful and the patterns are fun. 

I used paper and Stampin' Blend makers in Lemon Lolly, Azure Afternoon, and Bubble Bath. 

This first card is all Lemon Lolly. I love the coordination that Stampin' Up! has between ink and paper and ribbon. 

I stamped the image onto a tag from the Tailor Made Tags dies. 

The Lemon Lolly Striped paper is from the Bright and Beautiful Designer Series Paper pack.

The next card is in Bubble Bath. I stamped the image all around the background in tone on tone style for a subtle pattern.  The main image is stamped on a circle cut with the Stylish Shapes dies.  The flowers are colored with Stampin' Blends in Lemon Lolly, Bubble Bath, Fresh Freesia with leaves in Pretty Peacock and Lemon Lime Twist.  The bow and banner are both Azure Afternoon.




Lastly is the fun car. I think this would be fun for a new driver's 16th birthday, which will be my daughter next year (scary!)

The car is colored with Azure Afternoon Stampin' Blends. The patterned paper is once again from the Bright and Beautiful Designer Series Paper.
