Watercolor Wings and Fluttering – PPA 257

It’s another Sketch Challenge from the Pals Paper Arts.  I tried to go pretty  Clean and Simple with this one.

PPA257

Stamp Set – Watercolor Wings
Ink – Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie, Watermelon Wonder
Cardstock – Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie, Early Espresso, Whisper White, Schoolhouse DSP
Accessories – Fluttering Embossing Folder, Butterflies Thinlits, Greetings Thinlits,  2-1/2″ Circle Punch, Circles Collection Framelits, Big Shot,  Magnetic Platform, Stampin’ Dimensionals, Snail Permanent Adhesive, 2-Way Glue Pen

Stamping Tip:  When I used the Watermelon Wonder ink on the butterfly, I stamped it off on scrap paper first so the butterfly image had a softer, more watercolor look.  The Daffodil Delight and Pumpkin Pie ink were used without stamping off on scrap paper first.

Testimonials
*************

One of my downline recently commented to another demonstrator who had just joined Stamin’ Up!.

“You won’t regret it.  I have had a lot happen in my life in the past couple months and being a part of the Stampin Up community gained me new friends. My upline leader is truly a great friend!”

and after one of my group gatherings, one of my downline wrote:

“Thanks for hosting and sharing all the helpful info. You are a great upline!”

Happy Stamping!

“You’re Sublime” has the Cutest Camper

Camper

 

When I first saw the stamp set “You’re Sublime” in the new catalog, I knew I was going to buy that set.  All of the images are cute, but for me – with the camper image, it was love at first sight!  My husband and I like to camp in the summer here in Wisconsin and in Florida in the winter.

This card is headed to a friend who is a fellow camping enthusiast; I wanted to send a thank you since she treated me to Starbucks earlier this week.

Stamp Set – You’re Sublime
Ink – Black StazOn, Pool Party, Real Red, Smoky Slate, Island Indigo
Cardstock – Whisper White, Schoolhouse Designer Series Paper
Accessories – Linen Thread, Aquapainter, Silver Sequin Trim, Glue Dots, Snail Adhesive, Clear Block D, Stampin’ Trimmer

Stamping Tip:  The camper was stamped onto the Whisper White cardstock with Black StazOn which helps prevent bleeding of the colored ink when using aquapainters and blender pens.

If you are a camper or have family and friends who camp, you may want to add the “You’re Sublime” stamp set to your wish list or buy it now.  Don’t forget to check out the new Weekly Deals when you are making out your list of things to purchase.  It’s always great to save money and take advantage of Stampin’ Up! promotions!  🙂

Thanks for stopping by.

Happy Stamping!

Sprinkles on the Cupcake of Life

CASED from Jennie Maier

Stamp Set – Sprinkles of Life
Ink – Watermelon Wonder
Cardstock – Crushed Curry, Watermelon Wonder, Whisper White, Cherry on Top Designer Series Paper Stack
Accessories – Cherry on Top Washi Tape, Banner Triple Punch, Tree Builder Punch, 1-3/4″ and 2″ Circle Punches, Circles Collection Framelits, Stampin’ Dimensionals

When you see a card that you think is perfect, sometimes you just have to CASE (copy and share everything) it.  This is one of those times.  I CASED this from another Stampin’ Up! demonstrator, Jennie Maier.  Sometimes I change it up a bit to make it my own, but this time I copied it!

 And it’s ok – you don’t have to come up with original designs all of the time.  Just give credit to the person whose design you used.   I am honored if anyone wants to duplicate my designs!  And if I have inspired you, please shop on-line for your stamping supplies.

The Cherry on Top Designer Series Paper Stack is a 6″ X 6″ pad of paper, 48 sheets – 4 each of 12 designs and only $8.00.  A real bargain that you shouldn’t miss out on.

Thanks for stopping by.

Happy Stamping!
Deb
