SU Wild About Flowers

July 20, 2015

pp254

“FRAME” is the buzzword at The Paper Players #254 this week so I decided to show you a technique I learned from my upline Linda Heller last month at our demo meeting. It involves the simple act of Watercoloring on cardstock after using the SU  Brick Wall embossing folder.  Linda showed us how to use our aquapainters to watercolor the bricks with Cajun Craze ink- oh, it is sooooo cool!

SU Wild about Flowers Bick Wall insp by Lina

She made an awesome card with the new Lots of Labels framelits and an amazing color combo of Mossy Meadow, Tip Top Taupe, Soft Sky, and Cajun Craze ink. I have seen more than a few creative cards on Pinterest using the Brick Wall embossed panel with these framelits used to create an opening- they are wonderful used together!

Linda used a stamp set I did not have so I pulled out another one…
*proof to my family that I do not have EVERYTHING Stampin’ Up has in the catalog…LOL.

 I picked the SU Wild About Flowers stamp set to stamp a CAS image. I initially added the Mossy Meadow FRAME around the opening of the Brick Wall to set off the opening but then noticed how the frame really showcased not only the opening but also the beautiful Soft Sky cardstock,  the watercolored brick panel, and the flower image all at the same time:)

 All you do to create a frame is put one framelit inside the other one when running it through the Big Shot.  The Magnetic Platform comes in handy but if you do not have one- just make sure to secure the framelits as they go through the machine.

I  tucked a sentiment from the SU Garden in Bloom stamp set inside the frame on the front of the card and  finished off the inside with another sentiment in the stamp set.

See how neat the watercolor is…as you are “painting” it doesn’t look that great, and then it dries and the oohs and aahs start! I like it because you don’t have to be perfect on it, every card my girls did at class looked different and every card was awesome!

SU Beauty of the Season

July 17, 2015

Justin has a “Christmas in July” theme challenge at Stamp Ink Paper #5.

SIP-Any-Theme-5

I am normally not a Christmas all year long, though in December I sure wish I had been doing them all year long!! For example, I was putting together a basket of cards for my future daughter-in-law to take to her family reunion tomorrow and needed a few Christmas cards so I pulled out the gorgeous retired SU Beauty of the Season. I was inspired by the colors in the photo- the red, gold, and sandy Crumb Cake.

Oh my was I surprised when I realized the Windows Collection Framelits was retired…I thought I had memorized the catalog by now!

Hope you all have a splendid summer weekend, friends!

Paper Crafters Sampler July 2015

July 12, 2015

Summer is in full swing, and the July 2015 issue of Paper Crafters Sampler

is celebrating the season!

PCS July 2015

Cruise on over to the Paper Crafters Sampler website to get sneak peeks of the fresh, bright colors of summer along with the relaxing subdued hues of the ocean. You will also see an amazing kaleidoscope of butterflies!

*Butterflies are often referred to as a swarm but officially they are called a kaleidoscope- an interesting little tidbit I learned to answer a question on Jeopardy:)

Melanie also has a fun state highway template this month!

Here is part of my summer themed project for this issue:
