Remarkable You and Stampin' Blends

Hi Everyone!

Two posts in 2 days???  It's amazing! lol.  I have a lot to say about this card....  First of all the Stamp Set - Remarkable You.  I just love it.  The flowers are nice and big and not too fussy.  And speaking of fussy, did you notice I actually fussy cut this card?  If you know me at all you know I do not like to fussy cut anything.  Give me a punch or framelit any day of the week.  But with this set the fussy cutting is fairly easy, easy enough that I did it twice and even did the leaves.

So onto the coloring...  For the background I used one of my new favorite products from the Occasions Catalog - Brusho!  When I first saw this I didn't think I needed it but boy was I wrong.  I honestly ordered on a whim and I am so glad I did.  It's sooooo much fun to use and you can use it in so many different ways.  For this card I just sprinkled a little on my watercolor paper background and then spritzed some water over the top and let it dry.  I tend to be a bit heavy handed with the Brusho but I held myself back for this sample.

Now for my favorite part - the Stampin' Blends...  I used the Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive markers and just blended until I got the looks that I wanted.  The markers are so easy to use and it always seems to come out so pretty no matter what I working on.  In my opinion they are well worth the investment. 

Hope you enjoy!

Heart Happiness

Hi Everyone, 

I thought I would share one of the cards we made at last night's class.  We made 3 projects and this Valentine was the first one.  I have just loved using the Painted with Love DSP, the colors just look so nice together and it just makes your projects pop.  I paired the DSP with the Heart Happiness set and one of the sentiments from the Lovely Wishes set.  I totally forgot we have Calypso Coral Ribbon in the SAB catalog so I colored the Metallic Edge Ribbon with the Stampin' Blends.  I love that we can use the markers to make so many differently colored ribbons.  

Hope you enjoy!

Half Full

Hi Everyone, 

    We are getting a pretty good amount of snow today so its a perfect day to get some stamping done.  Of course I think that everyday :) 

      I made today's card with one of the cutest stamp sets from the Holiday Catalog.  I just love the whole set and even though I don't really drink very often it still makes me smile.  I stamped the glasses and sayings in Soft Suede because I love how it compliments the Gold Glimmer and Cherry Cobbler.  It always feels like it has some gold undertones in it to me.  

     By the way, the gold and white ribbon I used on the front is one of the year end discounted items.  It adds a nice little embellishment for an inexpensive price.  Hope you enjoy!

Brightly Lit Christmas

Hi Everyone!

It's once again been a long time since I have blogged so I have 2 projects for you today!  The Brightly Lit Christmas Stamp Set is a part of the Christmas Around the World Suite and I just love all of the products in it.  This suite seems a bit old fashioned and nostalgic to me which I just love for Christmas time.  I paired the first sample with the Be Merry DSP from the Annual Catalog.  The Stamp Set has 3 wonderful sentiments in it and you could really use them all interchangeably.

For the 2nd sample, I made a pretty tall tag.  The lamppost is pretty tall so it lends itself to a long narrow tag.  You can easily chose between the single lantern and the triple.  I did mount the tag on some chipboard that I had but you can always use the Thick Whisper White Cardstock.

Hope you enjoy!
