It happens every catalog…I see a bundle…pass it over…then, say…
hmmm, I am going to take a second look at it…
And, by golly, I LOVE it!! The Stampin’ Up Humming Along Bundle is just fabulous!
Look at that huge bloom and that lovely hummingbird.
I even made it stand out more on my card by heat embossing it in black. Watch my video to see how I did it with Memento, Versamark, and my handy Stamparatus…
*Thank you to Carol for her reminder of SU carrying black embossing powder item #146956…I was actually thinking how we did not carry Black Craft Ink anymore that we could emboss with clear and get no strays!!!! I loved this technique because we could use CLEAR instead of BLACK embossing powder because it is neater:)
Notice that die cut negative in the middle of the birthday card? Isn’t that cool?
I can’t wait to use the blue die cut that came out on some other card.
Whisper White Thick Card Base: 4-1/4″ x 11″ scored at 5-1/2″ on 11″ side, 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ for images, 3/4″ x 4″ strip on bottom
Basic Black panel: 4″ x 5-1/4″, 2-1/2″ x 3″for sentiment label
Balmy Blue panel: 3-3/4″ x 5″
I just fell in love with the delicate little bow in the SU Wishing You Well stamp set.
Has that ever happened to you? You are drawn to the set for one little image?
Of course, then I fall in love with all the other images!
I adore the lightly drawn sentiments- that stamp beautifully!
I thought the set paired well the Nature’s Poem Designer Series Paper.
As you can see I pulled the colors from the DSP- Mint Macaron, Cajun Craze, and Grapefruit Grove.
Although you can find Grapefruit Grove pearls in the Share What You Love Artisan Pearls,
I just colored my pearls with the Light Calypso Coral Alcohol Based Stampin’ Blends.
The base of my tent card is 4-1/4″ x 8-1/2″ scored at 4-1/4″ on the 8-1/2″ side.
The DSP is a 4″ square. The white panel is 2-3/4″ x 4 bordered by a 3″ x 4-1/4″ Cajun Craze Panel.
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!!!
