Happy Monday, friends! What a wonderful weekend I had with all my stamping buddies at our Annual Sale-a-bration Kick Off Luncheon! I still have to pinch myself when I think of all the special friends I have made since I became a demonstrator. Thanks to all of you who came and braved the cold- inside and ouside- heeheehee.
This is one of the 6 cards we made at our Occasions Catalog Kick Off.
It incorporates a technique called an Eclipse Effect.
How did I make it?
Well, I have another video for you!!
Sorry for all the Ummm-s.
My former homeschool students would not be happy
after all the years I told them….too many ummmms!!!
Those birds are so sweet, aren’t they? Did you notice the tiny little hearts in the upper right corner? They came from the birdie’s tail:)
So, I stamped the sentiment crooked on the pretty paper from the AWESOME Serene Scenery Designer Series Paper Stack. Boy, was I bummed since the gold embossing turned out great:(
To fix my mistake, I just punched the sentiment out using my retired oval and scallop oval punches. I then mounted it and liked it better after my mistake (frown turned upside down:)
Can you believe I did not even notice until this weekend that the Birds and Blooms framelit/thinlits not only framed the stamped images in the Best Birds stamp set but also had three birds that are just cut out! Yea! Take a look…and they come in a bundle with 10% off both of them!
I thought I would play around with Lisa’s Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge # 61 at Stamp Ink Paper.
I chose BIRD-TREE-BLUE straight through the middle.
I used the Stampin’ Up Thoughtful Branches Bundle that is available through August 31 while supplies last. So glad I go it! It is really versatile- definitely a lot of things you can do with it.
Notice how the branches can be seen through the foliage? I used the tree framelit and attached it to the tree stump image that was cut with the coordinating framelit. The fun little cloud comes from the SU Sprinkles of Life stamp set and the Tree Builder Punch. I even tried another version of the card (below) with the apples in the stamp set. I just love the grass and ground images in the set that can be used with other stamp sets I have:)
My color palette was Marina Mist, Pear Pizzazz, Soft Suede, Real Red, and Whisper White.
Remember, this bundle is available until August 31st. Take another look:
“You light up my life” include a source of light on your project…sun, bulb, etc.
I just used my sunshine thinlit last week but was thinking of the sun so…
here is what I came up with for the challenge…
Here comes the sun….(doo doo doo doo)
I am so happy to have an umbrella bundle in this catalog- bridal showers, baby showers. Of course, rain is a pain in the behind but I just love umbrellas! Look how cute the stamp set and framelits are:
I used the sun from the SU Kinda Eclectic stamp set. I love how big it is and if you mask off half of it, you have a perfect sunset or sunrise!
