Let's Celebrate!

Hi there! Well since my goodies arrived Thursday, I have been spending lots of time in my craft room playing with all these goodies, so today, I want to share with you a great card for any celebration, whether it be a birthday or anniversary or even a graduation card if you change up and use school colors.
What a fun card! I love Calypso Coral and Old Olive together, they just pop with the Basic Black as an accent color. It was fun to make and will be even more fun to give.
I'm still prepping for my open house/catalog launch party. It's going to be so much fun. I will be sure to share pictures of the event. In the meantime, happy stamping until next time,

Faux Tearing

Hi there! Tonight, I played with a technique I saw recently on line using the faux tearing technique and this is what I came up with:

Card #1 uses Calypso Coral and Whisper White cardstock along with Calypso Coral, Pear Pizzaz and So Saffron inks sponged between 2 pieces of torn copy paper masks. The stamped image is from the Into the Meadow stamp set found in the Occassions Spring catalog using the Basic Black Archival ink.
Card #2 uses Chocolate Chip, Crumb Cake and Very Vanilla cardstocks with Crumb Cake ink sponged on using a torn piece of copy paper as a mask and stamping the sentiment and flowers from the Birthday Blossoms stamp set. I also stamped and sponged 3 additional flowers and punched them out using the coordinating Pansy Punch and added them to the card using Stampin' Dimensionals. I added the Crumb Cake satin stitched ribbon.
So, what do you think? Leave a comment below and let me know what your thoughts are on this technique. Give it a try, pull out some inks, sponges and copy paper and see what you come up with.
Happy Stamping,

Stippled Masking

I hope everyone is staying warm in this deep freeze we're having! Good grief, today was the coldest day of the year so far, and I really hope it remains the coldest day of the year. -20 wind chill today and I think I about froze myself when I went out for a bit to meet up with some friends for a fun afternoon of painting. Which brings me to the conclusion that I need to stick with stamping! lol What do you think?
My master piece lol I will say it was a lot of fun and I will suggest that if you ever get the opportunity to do something like this, go ahead and try it. You can just have fun with it and be prepared to laugh at yourself. well at least that's what I did. I own the fact that I'm a stamper, not a painter!

Anyhoo, I have a tutorial to share with you and I made my very first video tutorial EVER! Making the video, not too bad, editing the video, I have lots to learn! I hope I don't bore you too much, but this card did turn out pretty cute. I hope you like it. It uses the soon to be retired Sky is the Limit stamp set. This is a sale-a-bration stamp set that goes away Tuesday 2/16! Not to worry, Stampin' Up! has some great replacements for it, however, you won't want to miss out on this one. Please leave me a comment below and let me know what you think of today's card and the video tutorial and thanks so much for stopping by and watching.
Have a great day!
