Where in the World Have I Been?

Well, right here to be honest. The new annual catalog went live on Wednesday and my order arrived on Thursday and I have been playing ever since, getting ready for my launch party next weekend! Oh the awesomeness! I am loving everything I got and my wish list remains LONG! Here is just one sample of what I have been doing, 
I will share more as the week goes along. But this little cutie is a 3-step stamp giving him his adorable huggable look. I started with a 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" card base in Early Esspresso scored at 4 1/4" . I layered a 4" x 5 1/4" Crumb Cake then I stamped my little cutie onto a piece of Whisper White cut 3 3/4"x 5". I stamped the solid image (labeled 1) with the lightest brown family color I have, Sahara Sand. I then stamped the second layer, (labeled 2) with the Crumb Cake ink and the third, most detailed image I stamped in Early Esspresso. I also stamped the sentiment with Early Esspresso ink and layered that onto the card. Isn't he just the sweetest? I just love him! What are your thoughts? Let me know in the comments below.

Color Blocking

Good morning! Today I want to share with you a really simple technique that creates some really cool backgrounds for your cards, it's called Color Blocking or Ink Blocking! It's where you take your acrylic blocks and ink the directly, spritz with water and apply the dampened ink directly to your cardstock! You can get so many variations of color and designs from this technique depending on the size and shape of the acrylic block, the amount of water used and of course the many ink colors to choose from.
Here is my example:
I used the new In-colors, Peek-a-boo Peach, Sweet Sugarplum and Flirty Flamingo and the stamp sets used are GreateSt Greetings and Wild about Flowers. So, the next time you pick up your acrylic blocks, give this technique a try. You will be amazed at the wonderful designs you will come up with!

Shake Shake Shake

Don't you just love an adorable shaker card? I know! They're just so fun to just sit and play with (insert grin) and they're even more fun to make, especially now that SU has introduced the new dimensional strips in the new catalog that will be available to you on June 1st! 
The new layering square Framelits also made this card as cinch to whip up in no time. One of the straight edge Framelits perfectly coordinated with this Painters Pallet stamp set and then I used the next size larger to cut the window sheet and the backing Whisper White that I stamped my images onto. I then applied the window sheet over the opening I created on the pallet, added the dimensional strips around and filled with the sequins and some Emerald Envy "sprinkles" I punched using the new Sprinkles punch coming in the new catalog, applied my stamped image face down and adhered the entire panel onto a piece of Sweet Sugarplum CS and attached that to a Whisper White card base. The one thing I wish I had done was to use my Embosing Buddy on the inside of the window sheet to remove the static, only because, although there is plenty of Shake in my shaker card, as you can see, some of the sequins are sticking due to static...but, still it's adorable, it's quick and it's easy....everything you could want in a hand-made card! So, on June 1st be sure to grab some goodies and make yourself some shaker cards to spread around and watch all the Shake, shake, shake going on!

Happy Stamping!
