Dazzling Wildflower Meadow & New Catty Time!

Happy Friday & New Catalog Day!!

In the SU! world today is kind of like Christmas morning - as is ANYTIME a new catalog begins!  Even more exciting is that from noon today until midnight tonight you can order from the old catalog, the new catalog, and the Spring catalog!  I know a shopping spree is coming my way today ;)

I'll share some other exciting news a little later on, but for now let's get to the card!  The set I used here is brand new to the catalog line up; called Wildflower Meadow.  Its a large image stamp but with oh so many possibilities! Here I paired it with a technique called Glitter Window which of course adds shimmer and a pretty watercolor look.  I wish the photo did the real thing justice - those Dazzling Diamonds look amazing!!

Here's another view I took with my iphone:


Stamp sets: Wildflower Meadow, A Word for You
Cardstock: Whisper White, Crisp Cantaloupe, Chocolate Chip
Ink: Basic Black
Accessories: Markers, Dazzling Diamonds, Packing Tape, Floral Frame Framelits, Piercing Tool, Pink Pirouette ribbon (retired), Large Pearls, Basic Pearls, Dimensionals, Sticky Strip

Begin with a piece of Crisp Cantaloupe cardstock measuring 5 1/2" square.  Center the largest framelit from the Floral Frames and run through the Big Shot (keep the cut out piece as well).  On the backside apply packing tape so the sticky side faces outwards.  Sprinkle liberally with Dazzling Diamonds and shake off excess.  Set aside.  Color the Wildflower Stamp using SU! markers and stamp onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock measuring 4 1/4" x 5 1/2".

You will notice that the stamped image is too small for the framelit, that's ok we'll deal with that next.  Line up the image behind the glitter window; offsetting to the right (leaving empty space on the left) and glue together.  Take the punch out from the framelit you set aside earlier and stamp "HAPPY BIRTHDAY" in Basic Black so that it aligns across 3 petals.  Layer this behind the Whisper White layer and the glitter window to fill in the empty space and adhere all three layers together.  Using a piercing tool, outline the outside of the Floral Frame.

Add a piece of ribbon where the lines of the layers meet and tie into a bow.  Add pearls to the corners for interest.  Adhere the layers with dimensionals onto a piece of Chocolate Chip cardstock measuring 6" x 12".

So, want to get your hands on the new catalog, or at least take a peek online?
Simply click on this image in the left hand sidebar and it will take you straight there to check out all the exciting new products!

Other exciting news just out today - Stampin' Up! is having a sale called Grab Your Greetings for the month of June.  They are offering 3 Greeting sets; Sassy Salutations, Sweet Essentials, and Petite Pairs for 25% off!  That's a great savings on sets that go with everything and help finish off a card!

See you all back here next week!  I'll be sharing June's tutorials for purchase - CREATING LANDSCAPES & LIGHT SOURCES!
Until then...

Similar Scenes:Two Techniques

Good Day!

Today's share is a something a little different than what I've ever shared before.  As I mentioned in my last post, I featured two techniques at my card class this month; one being Direct to Paper and the other being Masking & Sponging.  I wanted to be able to showcase how although each technique is very different from the other you can achieve similar results using either one - hence the similar landscapes.  Both use the exact same colors, layouts, papers, and ribbon.  Here's a quick overview of each card individually...


Stamp sets: Serene Silhouettes
Cardstock: Whisper White, Certainly Celery, Bermuda Bay
Ink: Soft Sky, Bermuda Bay, Island Indigo, Old Olive, Always Artichoke, Basic Black
Accessories: Chevron embossing folder, white gel pen, Natural Trim ribbon, Tombow liquid adhesive

If you've never heard of the Direct to Paper technique its a simple method of using the edges of the ink pad to apply the ink to paper.  It gives a very artistic and impressionistic look to your design and often doesn't look complete until you add a feature stamp or two at the end of the process.  It's a technique that takes a little practice to figure out how to hold the ink pads for the best results, but can be addictive simply because you can create a lot with little materials in little time!

Begin by smearing Soft Sky along the upper 1/3 of Whisper White cardstock, adding a small amount of Island Indigo along the upper edge of the skyline.  Next, smear Bermuda Bay ink using an angle motion to create the mountains; try to add varying heights for interest.  Using Soft Sky again, fill in the remaining white space - roughly the bottom 2/3 of the cardstock.  Using Old Olive then Always Artichoke smear ink between the mountains and water and along the bottom edge to create the illusion of trees and grasses around the water.  Add a few streaks of Island Indigo in the water area for definition.  Finish by stamping the flowers from the Serene Silhouettes set in Basic Black and highlight a few of the flowers with a white gel pen.


Stamp sets: Serene Silhouettes
Cardstock: Whisper White, Certainly Celery, Bermuda Bay
Ink: Soft Sky, Bermuda Bay, Island Indigo, Old Olive, Always Artichoke, Basic Black
Accessories: Chevron embossing folder, sponges, post it note, white gel pen, Natural Trim ribbon, Tombow liquid adhesive

Masking is the process of covering a portion of the paper and then apply ink above, below, or around then removing - leaving a portion of the paper inked and the other portion left as white space.  There are so many possibilities with this technique; a punched circle masked for a sun, a torn post it note for mountains and grass lines, or a simple straight line border for interest on a card front.

Begin by tearing a post it note - no special way, just random!  Using the negative portion of the mask (ie: the portion that will cover the sky area) position it roughly 1/3 of the way down the Whisper White cardstock.  Load a sponge with Bermuda Bay ink and begin sponging beneath the mask.  Work darker at the top and fade lighter towards the bottom.  Remove the mask, flip it over, re-position it to the right and down from the first mountain and repeat the process.  Remove the mask.  Sponge Soft Sky above the mountains to create the sky; darker on the edges of the cardstock, fading the color inwards.  Add a small amount of Island Indigo on the edges for depth.

Sponge Soft Sky below the mountains for the water.  Sponge Old Olive then Always Artichoke around the edges of the water followed by a small amount of Island Indigo for depth in the water.  Finish by stamping the flowers from the Serene Silhouettes set in Basic Black and highlight a few of the flowers with a white gel pen.

Hope this comparison has given you a new insight and some perhaps some inspiration into how techniques, although completely different, can be used to achieve similar results.

Just a reminder: there is only 3 days left to order any retiring products before they're gone - then its new catalog time!!  And great news if you can't wait to order for the new catty but still would like to order from the old - for a 12 hour period (12 noon to 12 midnight) on Friday May 31st, you can order from ALL THREE current catty's!  That's the 2011-2012 annual catalog, the Spring catalog, and the NEW 2012-2013 catalog!  This has never happened before so take advantage if you can!

Until next time...

A Swing in the Sunset


A rainy Monday is the perfect kind of day for a blanket, cup of tea, and a good my day dreams of course!  Still, doesn't it sound like a lovely way to pass the day? 

Today's card is a technique I taught at this month's card class called Direct to Paper.  The process and tools required couldn't be simpler - just your ink pads and the ability to smear ink across paper!  Be warned; its a very impressionistic technique so if you require lots of structure this one might not be for you.  Although, once you give it a try you'll probably find it quite addictive!


Stamp sets: Forever Young
Cardstock: Whisper White, Basic Black, Bashful Blue
Ink: Daffodil Delight, Crushed Curry, Pumpkin Pie, Melon Mambo, Raspberry Ripple, Soft Sky, Bermuda Bay, Island Indigo, Basic Black
Accessories: Sponges, Black Glimmer Brads, Snail

I hope to work on a photo tutorial for this technique in the near future, but for now I'll quickly take you through the steps I used to recreate this sunset.  I began working from the center of the Whisper White cardstock outwards.  I smeared a small amount of Daffodil Delight in the very center of the paper.  I then added Crushed Curry around the outer edges of the Daffodil Delight, followed by Pumpkin Pie around the Crushed Curry.  Melon Mambo then Raspberry Ripple were added from the edges of the Pumpkin Pie all the way to the edge of the paper.  At this point the upper 1/3 of the cardstock should still be white.  Smear Soft Sky on the remainder of this white space, followed by Bermuda Bay then Island Indigo.  Stamp the tree image from Forever Young in Basic Black and sponge the ground line with Basic Black as well.

Truly a very artistic technique that you can do so much with!  Mountains, fields of flowers...give it a try today!

Until next time...

Chicken Soup for the Soul

Happy Friday!

I'm going to probably sound like a broken record here, but my family has been struck yet again by the cold/flu bug.  Seems like at least every month in a half or so someone is afflicted with something - it begins to get more than tiring!  The only good thing that comes with a cold though is the guarantee that Homemade Chicken Soup will appear.  Nothing brings you out of a funk the way the smell of soup simmering on the stove does.  And as it just so happens, a pot is simmering away as I type this.

All this brought me to the idea of a Get Well card (at 2 am in the morning, of course!).  I knew in my brand new pack of Designer Series Paper from the NEW CATALOG titled Gingham Garden, that there was a cute Gingham check (ha, did the title give this one away??) so I used that as my inspiration for my place setting.  The rest is simple punch art and the chance to use the stamp set Bordering on Romance before it retires in one week.  Here's how I did it, if you'd like to re-create it yourself;


Stamp set: Bordering on Romance, Delightful Dozen
Cardstock: Melon Mambo, Whisper White, Basic Gray, Gingham Garden
Ink: Basic Gray, Island Indigo, So Saffron, Pumpkin Pie, Melon Mambo
Punches: 2 1/2" circle, 1 3/4" circle, 1 1/4" circle, 3/4" circle, 1/2" circle, Small Oval
Accessories: Markers, White gel pen, Tombow glue, dimensionals, sponges

Cut a card base from Melon Mambo cardstock measuring 5 1/2" x 8 1/2"; fold in half.  Cut a piece of Gingham Garden DSP measuring 3 3/4" x 5".  Sponge the edges with Melon Mambo ink and add faux stitching with the same color marker around the outside edge.  Center and adhere to card base.

Punch one of each of the following from Whisper White cardstock: 2 1/2" circle, 1 3/4" circle, 1 1/4" circle. With the border stamp found in the Bordering on Romance set stamp the flower image around the outer edge of the 2 1/2" circle using Island Indigo ink.  Sponge the edges with Basic Gray ink.  For the 1 3/4" circle, sponge the edges with Basic Gray ink then add small dots around the outside edge with an Island Indigo marker. Sponge the 1 1/4" circle with So Saffron ink, add flecks with markers. Layer the three circles together with Tombow liquid adhesive.

To create the glass of orange juice, punch one 3/4" circle and one 1/2" circle from Whisper White cardstock.  Sponge the 1/2" circle with Pumpkin Pie ink and the 3/4" circle edges with Basic Gray ink.  Glue together and add highlights with a white gel pen.

To create the spoon punch one small oval and one 1/2" circle from Basic Gray cardstock.  Flatten one edge of the small oval.  Trim the 1/2" circle to resemble a smaller oval.  Cut a piece of Basic Gray cardstock into a thin strip, approximately 1/4" wide x 1 1/2" long; tapered upwards to create the handle.  Stamp a small flower onto the handle and all edges of all three pieces with Basic Gray cardstock.  Assemble pieces together using Tombow glue and add highlights with a white gel pen.  "Set" your table by gluing the pieces down with dimensionals.  Add the sentiment from the Delightful Dozen set in the bottom right hand corner with Basic Gray ink.

To all my American readers, have a safe long weekend!  I'll see you all back here next week; healthy and with lots to share!!

Until then, I'm off to eat soup!

Hydrangeas in the Window


I hope everyone had a wonderful long weekend; I know I most certainly did!  We were able to plant our garden and all my flowers, along with making a nice dent in the regular spring yard cleanup.  I'm absolutely exhausted but when you have 3 full days of nice weather you have to make the most of it!

Of course when you accomplish a lot outside, nothing gets attention inside...which means that the pile of laundry is a mile high and more importantly my stamp room is collecting dust!  I have tons of ideas, just have to get in there and get them onto paper - until then I have a card I made for Mother's Day but could be easily transitioned to an any other occasion card just by changing the sentiment.  I really like using this window frame technique and its so simple to do!  My favorite part of this card though?  I had a chance to use one of the brand new In Colors as my card base - what do you think of 'Crisp Cantaloupe'???


Stamp sets: Best of Flowers, Delightful Dozen
Cardstock: Whisper White, Crisp Cantaloupe, Chocolate Chip, Calypso Coral
Ink: Black Staz-On, Soft Sky, Basic Black
Accessories: Brayer, Markers, Window Frames Collection Framelits, Perfect Plum Taffeta Ribbon, Basic Pearls, Modern Label punch, Lacy Brocade embossing folder, dimensionals

To create the window frame, choose two framelits, one slightly larger than the other.  With the largest framelit, cut from Chocolate Chip cardstock; the smaller framelit from Whisper White cardstock.  Brayer the Whisper White frame with Soft Sky, working on an angle from the upper right to the lower left.  Stamp the Hydrangeas with Black Staz-On ink and color in using the MARKER LAYERING TECHNIQUE.  Cut this finished piece into quarters and glue onto the larger Chocolate Chip framelit, spacing each quarter to leave a small frame around each piece, creating your window frame.  Think of all the things you can do with this cutting technique - a window scene for all seasons!

Remember that there is only 2 weeks left in the Spring and Annual Catalogs!  If there is anything you'd love to acquire before its gone for good, place your order soon!

Until next time...

Trio of Flowers & Late Night Stamper's Treasure Hunt Winner!


I've finally found a few moments in my day to share a post with you!  This is one of the Mother's Day cards I made this year - it was so much fun to make!  Quite some time ago I found a card with 3 dimensional flowers on Pinterest and was intrigued as to how to make them.  After following the link I found that Stampin' Up demo, Melanie Hopes designed these just by folding and layering punches and Bigz dies together.  If you'd like to see her video tutorial on how to make them, check it out on Jill Olsen's blog.


Stamp sets: Delightful Dozen
Cardstock: Very Vanilla, Old Olive, Pretty in Pink, Calypso Coral, Subtles Designer Series Paper Stack
Ink: Old Olive
Accessories: Fun Flowers Bigz die, Apothecary Accents Framelits, Scallop Edge Border punch, 1 1/4" circle punch, Dazzling Diamonds, 2 way glue pen, Tombow adhesive, hot glue gun

Because I've been so far behind I haven't shared the Late Night Stamper's Treasure Hunt winner with you yet either!  The winner was announced yesterday and awarded to Heather Hopson of British Columbia, Canada!  I'm pretty sure she'll love that $150 shopping spree!  Congrats Heather!

Also keep in mind that there is only 2 weeks remaining in both the Spring and 2011-2012 Annual catalog.  If there's anything you've been wanting now is the time to order it before its gone!

Have a great rest of your day everyone!  I'm off to play a little soccer with my boys and stir up some earth worms in my flower beds!

Rainy Day Boots


Today I have another card I made for the card swap with my Secret Sister.  I used the cute rubber boots from the set Bootiful Occasions along with the Rain or Shine set from the Spring Mini Catalog.  I really like the way this one turned out - even though its a rainy scene the colors are so vibrant it still feels "cheery"!  I hope she liked receiving this one!


Stamp sets: Bootiful Occasions, Rain or Shine (Spring Mini Catalog)
Cardstock: Whisper White, Tempting Turquoise, Tea for Two DSP
Ink: Basic Black, Midnight Muse, Real Red, Tempting Turquoise, Soft Suede
Accessories: Red Riding Hood, Calypso Coral, Tangerine Tango, and Pool Party markers, Brayer, sponges, paper snips, Large Oval punch, dimensionals, snail adhesive

Begin by stamping two boots onto Whisper White cardstock using Basic Black ink.  Color in the boots using a Calypso Coral marker and shading with Tangerine Tango.  Outline the inside of the clouds using a Pool Party marker.  Cut out the boots carefully with paper snips.

Stamp one of the umbrella images from the Rain or Shine stamp set using Real Red ink onto Whisper White cardstock.  Stamp one of the umbrella handles below the umbrella with Basic Black ink.  Shade the umbrella image with a Riding Hood Red marker and carefully cut out with paper snips.

To create the bayered background, brayer Tempting Turquoise on the upper 2/3 of a piece of Whisper White cardstock.  Sponge Soft Suede on the lower 1/3 of the cardstock to create the ground line.  Stamp the raindrop image from the Rain or Shine set repeatedly on the brayered background with Midnight Muse ink, minus the area where the boots and umbrella will be placed.  It may be easier alignment to first glue the boots and umbrella to the background with dimensionals before completing this step.

Once assembled, glue the image to the Calypso Coral polka dot patterned paper from the Tea for Two DSP.  Stamp the sentiment from the Bootiful Occasions set that comes with the rubber boot image onto Tempting Turquoise with Midnight Muse and punch out with the Large Oval punch.  Assemble onto a card base of Tempting Turquoise.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Northern Lights Video Tutorial

Wow, and just like that it's mid week!

I've finally found some time to sit down and edit my first video.  I was asked about a month ago by fellow demonstrator, Lisa Tedder, if I would be interested in creating a video for my Northern Lights sponging technique for her website, Twosdays Techniques.  After some consideration I decided I would at least make an attempt (or two or three LOL).  I'm sure that with practice I will be more comfortable in front of the camera; right now though its just seems a little awkward to talk to no one in particular while I work!

If you are interested in checking out Lisa's site she's offering a special to those I send her way via this blog.  You'll receive 2 technique video's every Tuesday for $35 for an entire year.  That means you'll receive the 200 videos on her site right now in addition to the 100 videos she'll be posting over the next year!  If your interested, her website is

Hope you like it!  I'd love to hear what other video's you might like to see tutorials on!

Until next time...

Brayered Daisy Sunset

Good Morning!

Over the last four months I was able to participate in a Secret Sister card swap with members of my upline group.  In total we created four cards; today I'd like to share one of them with you.

I love to brayer but haven't used  the technique in a while so I decided to start there, along with the miniature version of the Upsy Daisy stamp from April's Best of Flowers set (for more info on the Best of 25 Years sets, please check out the sidebar on the left or search my Promotions page).


Stamp Sets: Best of Flowers, Oh, Hello
Cardstock: Whisper White, Cajun Craze, So Saffron, Basic Black
Ink: Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie, Cajun Craze, Old Olive, Always Artichoke, Basic Black
Accessories: Oval Collection Framelits, Bitty Butterfly punch, 1 1/4" Circle punch, Chevron embossing folder, So Saffron Taffeta ribbon, Brayer, sponges, sticky strip, glue dots

To create the brayered image:

Cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock with the third to smallest oval framelit.  Mask off the sun with a 1 1/4" circle punched from a post it note.  Begin by brayering Daffodil Delight over 2/3 of the oval.  Brayer Pumpkin Pie over the Daffodil Delight, leaving some of the latter exposed.  Finish the sky by brayering Cajun Craze on just the upper 1/3 of the sky.

Brayer Old Olive on the bottom 1/3 of the cardstock, meeting up with the Daffodil Delight from the sky.  Brayer Always Artichoke on the very bottom of the cardstock.  Remove the mask and sponge Daffodil Delight with the sun.  Stamp the Upsy Daisy image using Basic Black ink along the grassline (the image will require being stamped approximately 3-4 times - if needed used a Stamp-a-ma-jig for perfect alignment).  Stamp the Oh, Hello sentiment in Basic Black ink in the upper left hand side of the image.

Quick reminder before I sign off for today...there is only a few days left to get all your Late Night Stamper's Treasure Hunt clues in!  Find all 50 clues and email them to me for your chance to win a Stampin' Up! shopping spree!  The list of blogs "hiding" clues can be found at the top of my blog if you'd still like to play before the end of the week deadline - Good Luck!

Country Kitchen

Happy Friday!

Sometimes when I sit down to design a card one stamp set speaks to me.  Other times, multiple sets compete for my attention LOL.  Today's card uses four very different stamp sets but, when used together, all work together to form an image that reminded me of a quiet, comfy country kitchen smelling of fresh baked bread.  I've got quite the imagination, no? ;)


Stamp sets: Forever Young, Best of Flowers, Tea Shoppe, French Foilage
Cardstock: Whisper White, Very Vanilla, Baja Breeze
Ink: Black Staz-On, Basic Gray, Pool Party, Midnight Muse, Soft Suede, Basic Black
Accessories: Markers, Stripes embossing folder, Apothecary Accents Framelits, Basic Pearls, Versamark, Clear embossing powder, sponges, paper snips, Snail adhesive

Begin with a Baja Breeze card base measuring 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" and emboss the front of the card with the Stripes EF.  To "dirty" up the wall slightly, lightly sponge Soft Suede ink across the embossing.  Cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock measuring 1 1/2" x 4 1/4".  Sponge entired piece with Soft Suede ink then add horizontal board lines with a Chocolate Chip marker.  Adhere to the bottom edge of the Baja Breeze cardstock.

To make the vase:
Cut the side pieces off the framelit as seen above in the Apothecary framelits set.  Sponge the edges with Basic Gray ink, stamp the circle image from the French Foilage set onto the "vase", cover with Versamark ink and clear embossing powder and heat set.  Add pearls to wear the handles of the vase would be.  Glue onto the "table top" and add a shadow below with a sponge and Basic Gray ink.

Stamp one of the tea cups from the Tea Shoppe set onto Whisper White cardstock using Pool Party ink.  Cut out with paper snips and adhere to the table top; add a Basic Gray shadow below the tea cup.

Stamp the bouquet image from the Best of Flowers set onto Whisper White cardstock with Black Staz On ink.  Using the marker layering technique color in the bouquet.  Carefully cut out with paper snips and glue down below the mouth of the vase.

Stamp the clock from the Forever Young set onto Baja Breeze cardstock using Midnight Muse ink.  Cut out carefully with paper snips.  Stamp the image again onto Whisper White cardstock in Basic Black ink.  Cut out the clock face and adhere to the image stamped on Baja Breeze.  Adhere clock to the "wall".

So, what do you think?  Can you smell the fresh bread??

Have a wonderful weekend!  Next week I will be posting a video and launching my online virtual club so be sure to check back or sign up to follow my blog and you'll be notified of updates by email!  You can also find me on Bloglovin' if you prefer to receive updates that way!
