Stampin' Up! Painter's Palette-Stretch Your Stamp Series

Hi everyone!

It feels so good to be back!  I apologize for my absence, but sometimes, you need a break to take care of yourself and that's exactly what I did!

I am so excited to be back because we are about to launch the 2016-2017 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog!  Oh. My. Word.  Have you seen it?  Have you seen the new in colors?  Amazing!

I have a card for you today using a new stamp set and the new in color Flirty Flamingo!

I used the new Painter's Palette stamp set along with Early Espresso and Flirty Flamingo.  I think this pink is going to go very well with the Stampin' Up! neutrals palette.

I stamped the easel using Early Espresso and the sentiment using Flirty Flamingo.

I tied a bow using the new in-color Ruche Ribbon.  Isn't it gorgeous????

Finally, I am trying something new with my videos.  I want you to get to see more than just my hands on a weekly basis!  So, let me know what you think of the new format!  Love it?  Hate it?  I would love your feedback!

One last thing!  Did you know I'm having a party?  I am!  It's an online party to celebrate the Annual Catalog!  It's my Stamp-n-jamma party on Facebook!  You can click here to join the fun! 

I can't link to the products just yet, but I can share my video with you!  Feel free to watch it here or over at youtube!

Throwback Stampin' Up! Flower Patch VEDA Day 25

Hi everyone,

I am back today with a throwback card for you.  I have been dealing with a stomach bug or food poisoning the last couple of days and creating just hasn't been a possibility.

This card popped up in my memories on Facebook not long ago and I remembered how much I loved it! It's probably one of my most favorite cards ever!

I used the Flower Patch stamp set from Stampin' Up! along with the coordinating dies.  By the way, this bundle is retiring!  Make sure you pick it up before it's gone! 

I stamped using my favorite color...purple :)  I used Perfect Plum and Wisteria Wonder for the main flowers.  I used Night of Navy for the card base along with the sentiment and flower centers.  

The leaves were stamped using Pear Pizzazz and Garden Green. I really love how this stamp set provides so much dimension.  When you add the coordinating framelits, you have a match made in crafting heaven!

I finished this card off with a small row of rhinestones.  I think it's just as gorgeous today and hope that you will make your own and tag me on instagram!

As always, thanks so much for stopping by!  The supplies are listed down below!  You can watch the video here or at youtube!

Stampin' Up! Rose Wonder Watercolor VEDA Day 15

Hi everyone,

I am not even going to say it.  Well, yes I am.  You know that I cannot quit this stamp set. If it retires, I will be heartbroken....until I find something else that catches my eye :)

I know from the first time I saw this set that I wanted to watercolor it. I envisioned a striking image with a hint of sparkle and well.....this has more than just a hint of sparkle!

I used the Rose Wonder stamp set from Stampin' Up! and stamped it using our Basic Black archival ink.

I stamped the sentiment and punched it using our 2 " circle punch and punched a piece of Cucumber Crush using the 2 3/8 " scalloped circle punch from Stampin' Up! 

Before coloring, I took a bronze Sharpie metallic marker and colored several of the White Perfect Accents.  I knew the touch of bronze would be beautiful on this card and it takes those a few minutes to dry.

I colored the image with Night of Navy, Cucumber Crush and Sahara Sand ink using my Wink of Stella brush pen instead of an Aqua Painter.  Isn't it gorgeous?

As always, thank you so much for stopping by.  You can watch the video below or over on youtube.  Supplies are listed down below!

Stampin' Up! The Best Thing VEDA Day 13

Hi everyone,

I am back today with this gorgeous stamp set called The Best Thing.  It's a Hostess stamp set available from Stampin' Up! when you spend $150 or more.

I was in the mood to watercolor today and I knew this stamp set works well with it because that's exactly how I used it in a card last summer!

I absolutely love hydrangea and I love how this card turned out.  I started by stamping the image onto a piece of watercolor paper with our Basic Black Archival Ink.  While that dried, I used the Birthday Bouquet Designer Series Paper, along with Soft Suede and Night of Navy for my card base.

I used my aqua painter along with my Blushing Bride, Watermelon Wonder, and Mossy Meadow ink for the watercolor. 

I had a boo boo when I stamped, but I was able to cover that up with our gorgeous White Stitched Satin Ribbon to cover it and I love how it looks. 

I really love how this card turned out and I loved using a stamp set from the summer to get my creative juices flowing again!

As always, you can watch the video here or over at youtube.  Unfortunately, I can't link to the stamp set. 

Thanks for stopping by!

Stampin' Up! You've Got This-VEDA Day 11

Hi everyone!

Ever have those times when you feel like you've lost your crafting mojo? I have been in a little bit of a slump the last few weeks. When that happens, I try to mix up my crafting routine.

With that being said, I pulled out some stamp sets from the Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog and I will be showcasing them the next couple of days starting with the You've Got This stamp.

 I am still head over heels in love with this Birthday Bouquet Designer Series Paper. I have just a few pieces left.  I've been debating on buying another pack to have around, but I know that there will be something new in the 2016-17 Annual Catalog that will catch my eye!
I paired Basic Black with Blushing Bride ink and the Pool Party Glitter Ribbon.  I love the contrast of the black and pink and I think it makes for a striking card.

Isn't it fun to revisit stamp sets that we love?!?  The supplies are linked down below!
