Happy Birthday Swap Card

I participated in a team card swap and this is the card I submitted. I got so many cool cards back that I will show on my card displays.

One of my favorite new stamp sets is Flower Shop. I'm addicted to flowers and this set comes with six different flowers! Plus you can bundle it with the coordinating punch making it VERY easy to create cards like this. I purchased this stamp set as a wood set knowing that I will probably be punching out the flowers most of the time. You can see the set HERE.

Card Details:
Cardstock: Strawberry Slush, Pool Party, Whisper White
Stamps: Flower Shop Stamp Set, Gifts of Kindness (sentiment)
Inks: Island Indigo, Pumpkin Pie, Strawberry Slush, Early Espresso
Accessories: Early Espresso Baker's Twine, Pansy Punch, Woodgrain Embossing Folder, Deco Labels Framelits

Colored Vellum Flower Technique

Can you believe another post? I'm trying folks...every other day seems to be working! Love the summer months to get caught up and create again!

Last week on PTI, I saw their Make It Monday Technique was to make Colored Vellum Flowers. I just knew I wanted to try it with some of my SU stamps.

So I grabbed my Secret Garden Stamp Set and Framelits and went to work! Since I'm blogging again, I'm also (slowly) checking out the challenge blogs again. I'm a total sketch freak! This was a Clean & Simple sketch from a few weeks ago.

The leaves are two-toned. I did the rock n roll technique on them with Pistachio Pudding and Baked Brown Sugar. All the colors are from the new In Colors - they are oh so fabulous!

The flower center is a double ribbon knot using the new stretch ruffle fun!

Card Details:
Cardstock: Crisp Cantaloupe, Baked Brown Sugar, Coastal Cabana, Pistachio Pudding, Strawberry Slush, Whisper White, Vellum
Stamp Sets: Four You #130538 and Secret Garden #129144
Inks: Crisp Cantaloupe, Baked Brown Sugar, Pistachio Pudding, Strawberry Slush
Accessories: Bitty Banners Framelits #129267; Coastal Cabana Stretch Ruffle Trim #130024, White Embossing Powder, Embossing Buddy, Popdots, Secret Garden Framelits #129372

Blooming With Kindness Slider Card

Wanted to share a card using the stamp set Blooming With Kindness. After attending Regionals and getting so many fabulous swap cards I had to try a technique on one of them called "thumping". I inked the flower using Smoky Slate ink and then took my Pear Pizzazz, Bermuda Bay and Real Red makers and "thumped" on the flower. I then "huffed" it and stamped on my Whisper White paper. 

I'm kind of trying to make more "fun fold" cards. When I got my latest edition of Cardmaker Magazine and saw the tutorial for a slider card, I knew I had to try it.

I stamped the sentiment, which is from Gifts of Kindness, on the inside. The color choices came from an old Colour Q really helps to have those to refer back to. One less thing I have to "come up with"...and it's a mix of colors that I probably wouldn't have tried otherwise.

Card Details:
Cardstock: Bermuda Bay, Basic Grey, Real Red, Whisper White
Stamp Sets: Blooming with Kindness (#126422) & Gifts of Kindness (#130444)
Inks: Basic Black & Smoky Slate Ink Pads; Bermuda Bay, Real Red and Pear Pizzazz Markers
Accessories: Whisper White Organza Ribbon, 1" Circle Punch

New Stampin' Up! Catalog

I know, I know...the new catalog has been out for a couple of weeks but my Vegas Trip has me just a tad behind. With that being said, I'm trying to get a "schedule" down and get back into creating again. I miss having classes and seeing all my friends, lol!

You can get the catalog through me - just send me an email. OR you can view it online HERE. But wait - if that doesn't work for you then you may want to download it through the Google Catalogs app for your iPad or Android Tablet. How cool is that?! You can always have it with you - inspiration at your fingertips!!

Remember you can shop with me anytime through my website:
