Flower Flair - Stampin' Up!

Here's another using the Flower Flair Framelits as a stencil.  These are basic shapes applied to the Hardwood Background stamp.  Rhinestones and a circle punched from Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper add some visual interest to the centre of the flowers.  So easy!  Sentiment is from Watercolor Words.

Leaflets Framelits - Watercolor Words - Stampin' Up!

Here's a lovely fall(ish) card that will get more use out of your thinlits.  I made a template with the vellum card stock and the maple left from the Leaflets Framelits (page193) and sponged on crushed curry, calypso coral and rich razzleberry.  Use any of the sentiments from Watercolor Words (page 135); they're all great!.  I used strands of burlap from the burlap ribbon for a cute bow.

Any framelit can be made into a fun, quick card.  The possibilities are endless.  I'll have more samples soon.

Hello Sunshine - February 2016 Paper Pumpkin - Number of Years - Stampin' Up!

I used the Number of Years stamp set and the co-ordinating framelits to make a quick and easy birthday card.  The card base is from the February Hello Sunshine Paper Pumpkin kit.  I snipped off the end of one of the washi tape die cuts from the kit to make it a better size for the sentiment.

I love adding something to the inside of the card when I can.  I used the little flower stamps from the Paper Pumpkin kit to add some focal interest to the inside of the card.

Paper Napkin - Iridescent Ice - Stampin' Up!

If you haven't used paper napkins to make cards, you will never look at them the same way again!  You can use any paper napkin for this technique and it will be awesome!  In real life this card is sparkly and cheery!  Give it a try...

It's as simple as:
adhering two sided adhesive (I used the now retired Sizzix adhesive sheets) to card stock.  Apply one layer of your napkin...they are usually 2 or 3 play--you only use the one top layer!  Ink it up liberally with VersaMark and add your Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder.  Heat it all up and assemble your card!

On this card I used vellum card stock to stamp and emboss the white sentiment from Cottage Greetings. Added a few hearts from the Confetti Heart punch and it was done!

Don't forget Sale-a-bration is going on.  Earn FREE product with each $60 purchase.

Stampin' Mist Technique - Summer Silhouettes - Bold Butterfly - Stampin' Up!

Create your own unique background with your stamp cleaner!  It's as simple as can be and the results are always a little different.

I used Shimmery White card stock and sponged with Bermuda Bay and Wild Wasabi.  I sprayed directly onto the stamp and then stamped several times, re-misting each time.  It takes a few minutes for the magic to work but the results are fun and pretty.

Some glimmer was added to the butterfly with the new Wink of Stella glitter brush.  It is so pretty IRL!
