Regarding Dahlias and Express Yourself stamp sets

Shop Online 24/7 for Stampin’ Up! Supplies

I love dahlias and was very excited to see this new Stampin' Up! stamp set.  After embossing the image, I wanted to emphasize the petals so I went around each one with the Coastal Cabana Stampin' Write marker.  I really think it made them "pop".  Hope you like this as much as I do!    Have a great weekend and Happy Stampin!

Gifts of Kindness stamp set

Shop Online 24/7 for Stampin’ Up! Supplies

I was browsing on Pinterest and saw a card very similar to this one (sorry, I do not remember who made it). The technique is so easy. Find three colors  of ink pad refills that you like together, put a drop or two of each into separate containers. Brush the bottom area of the watercolor paper with water from an aqua painter. Dip the aqua painter in the refill ink and stroke it across the card, repeat with the next two colors. Let the paper dry and stamp with your desired image. This sounds difficult, but trust me this is such a simple card.    Happy Stampin!

Sketched Birthday stamp set

Shop Online 24/7 for Stampin’ Up! Supplies

I have been wanting to make a card using the "chalk board technique" for awhile now and think the Stampin' Up! Sketched Birthday set works well.  If you haven't tried this technique before, it really is very simple.  Rub the Basic Black card stock with the embossing buddy (helps with the embossing and creates the "chalk" smudges) then stamp your images with the Whisper White craft pad and emboss with white embossing powder. I drew the lines around the card with a white colored pencil. This card is very quick and easy, hope you will try it.

Wildflower Meadow stamp set and coordinating Big Shot embossing folder

Shop Online 24/7 for Stampin’ Up! Supplies

Here is a different take on the Stampin' Up! Wildflower Meadow stamp set. To do this card I inked the stamp with Pear Pizzazz ink and before stamping on the Whisper White card stock I wiped the Pear Pizzazz ink off of the flowers (this can be done with a blender pen or aqua painter) then I colored them with a Raspberry Ripple marker. After stamping the image, I added additional highlights and shading with the Raspberry Ripple marker. While this marker technique takes a little time, I think the results can be quite attractive.  Happy Stampin!

Wildflower Meadow stamp set and embossing folder

Shop Online 24/7 for Stampin’ Up! Supplies

I am having such a good time looking through the new Stampin' Up! catalog and playing with my new stamps, embossing folders, and the new colors of card stock and ink.  The new Wildflower Meadow set makes it so easy to create a beautiful card, because it has a matching Big Shot Wildflower Meadow embossing folder. All you have to do is stamp your image, then run it through the Big Shot and voila you have a WOW card. Something else that I think is great is you can purchase this set as a Bundle. By using the bundle offer you reduce the price of stamp set and embossing folder by 15%, now come on who doesn't like a sale? So why don't you click on the bundle link and purchase this set now?   Happy Stampin!
