Techniques with Blended Seasons and Watercolor Pencils

Posted: Tuesday, August 21st, 2018 @ 9:31 am in Projects | No Comments »

The Blended Seasons stamp set (only available in August) lends itself to many fun techniques for you to try.  First I used  Watercolor Pencils, Watercolor Paper and an aquapainter.  It’s so nice to have Gorgeous Grape and Granny Apple Green in Watercolor Pencils – these may not come back after August either, so don’t wait […]

I’m finding that the Blended Seasons Bundle has no end of possibilities.  I think you are going to enjoy both the stamp set and dies for many seasons and many occasions. Here are 2 of the projects that we are doing at my August Card Class (pdf project sheets are free with any order at […]

String Art Tutorial

Posted: Thursday, August 16th, 2018 @ 10:16 am in Projects | No Comments »

I tried this string art technique a couple months back, Stampin’ Up style, and forgot to blog it.  This is a really messy but fun technique. Cut a piece of Baker’s Twine and dip it in 1 or more colors of ink in sections.  Try not to get the twine too saturated.   Now that I’m […]

Stitched Seasons Tags

I had just a few minutes last week to play with 3 new Holiday Catalog bundles that we were given on the Stampin’ Up! incentive trip.  I used the Stitched Seasons Framelit dies (only available while supplies last) to make all the layers of the tags.  I’ll post more details about the tags when the […]

I like to take a photo or two of the process while I’m creating a project.  Here are a few I found in my files. Before this, was this: Today’s Tip:  I wanted to make multiples of this easy layout, so I stamped the vases tipped slightly onto strips of Whisper White Cardstock.  Then it […]

I like to take a photo or two of the process while I’m creating a project.  Here are a few I found in my files. Before this, was this: I used the Stamparatus for placement on all 3 designs.  The first one I also used the masking technique to combine the 3 animals.  The second […]

July Stampin’ Up! Specials are almost over.  The Designer Series Paper sale is one of my favorite times.  I like to stock up on my favorites, and this year it was almost all of them!  Petal Promenade is just a gorgeous set of rose paper that you can use for many occasions. Don’t forget to […]

My Stampin’ Up! Incentive Trip Swap Card

Posted: Friday, July 27th, 2018 @ 2:32 pm in Projects | No Comments »

A part of almost every Stampin’ Up! event is swapping card ideas and a service project.  This year for the Alaska cruise we are collecting backpacks and school supplies for the Boys and Girls Club of Juneau.  I thought this backpack was a good Stampin’ Up! new In Color. So if you like this color, […]

Designer Series Paper – Animal Expedition

Posted: Monday, July 23rd, 2018 @ 2:23 pm in Projects | No Comments »

Another one of my favorite Stampin’ Up papers is Animal Expedition.  All the zoo animals are so darn cute.  And you don’t need much time to make these cards, because you don’t want to cover up the darling paper. This cute leaf ribbon is part of this suite of products too.  No stamping at all […]
