Watercolor Wonder Notecards - Clearance Rack - Sale-a-bration 2015

As of today these notecards were still on the Clearance Rack.  It's a bargain for sure!  Get 20 assorted notecards; 4 each of 5 designs including 20 envelopes.  That is $.032 a piece.  These are only while supplies last.  Add them to your order when trying to reach the $60 mark for a FREE Sale-a-bration product.  More on Sale-a-braton 2015 in the weeks to come; it is going on until the end of March.

These lovely tulips were from the stamp set Blessed Easter (now retired)   The water-colour paper takes the water beautifully.  I used Stampin' Up!'s Classic Ink and the Aquapainter to colour the images.

Here I cut down the notecard and adhered to a Basic Gray card base.  The flowers were part of the notecard; I just added the sentiment and silver twine.  The second one I messed up the stamping so I corrected it by stamping on some Basic Grey, flagging one end and adding a co-ordinating Candy Dot.

Doesn't get much simpler than this.  I used a large sentiment called Million & One and added a three stars from the In Color Sequin Assortment.  This card base was also cut down and adhered to a retired piece of Gumball Green card stock.  I can get eight cards from these four green water-colour card bases.

I got to use up some old retired silver and gold twine on these cards from years ago.  The silver is all used up now!!  This card uses the gold.

The tiny rhinestones were coloured with Blendabilities.  The rhinestones themselves were from my stash and are non Stampin' Up!  The other flower images are from Simply Sketched (now retired)

Go on over to the Clearance Rack at 
and see what other great bargains you can find.

Seriously Amazaing - My Paper Pumpkin - August 2014 Kit - Stempin' Up!

Happy New Year!  This new year brings a continued effort to finish up kits....and I have many of them; ranging from My Paper Pumpkin and left over card class kits.  I've only done a handful of the My Paper Pumpkin kits and chose the August 2014 kit called Seriously Amazing to complete at the moment.  The kit includes everything you need!  It made four standard cards/envelopes and four note/gift cards/envelopes with a ample of left over supplies to use in future creations.

Then I boxed them in an empty Lindor Truffle box; so they are all set should I decide to give them as a gift!  These cards were fun and easy to make; emptying the truffle box was no chore either!

Wishing you a year filled with creativity!
