Weekly Deals 10:28 - 11:3

A few tidbits on the Word Bubbles Framelits:

The SU Just Sayin’ stamp set coordinates with the Word Bubbles framelits.

Here is a card I used one on that was trendy and artsy:

On my Lego card below, I used a Word Bubble framelit

with another stamp set called Remembering Your Birthday.

This shows how you can use the framelits with other sets you have in your collection.

 I am always looking for die cut shapes to cut out sentiments, and I found that the Word Bubbles framelits can be used as a “shape” by just trimming off the tail. So, even if you are not into the trendy coordinating stamp set, the framelits are a versatile product and now at a discount!

 I also love the Large Scallop Edgelit- so easy to use- just place it on your paper with the magnetic plate and run it through the Big Shot. Here is a sample that shows how it can add a simple yet eye-catching touch to a card design:

More SU Vivid Vases

Well, you can see how versatile the SU Vivid Vases stamp set really is…I have used Blendabilities with Crystal Effects, Blender pens with Watercoloring, and now some paper piecing. I used the Moonlight Designer Paper Stack to easily coordinate the colors. I actually used the Blendabilites alcohol markers that matched well with Blackberry Bliss and Hello, Honey. I am even trying to remember to do something to the insides of my cards even if it is just something simple. Flowers always remind me of SUMMERTIME so I am sharing it at Stampin’ Up Only Challenge #99.

SU Vivid Vases Watercolored

I played along with The Paper Players #200 challenge this week. Congrats and thank you  to all who have worked so hard to make the site AWESOME! To celebrate this milestone, the designers have given everyone inspiration from their favorite challenges. I chose to go with Jaydee’s challenge #91 of watercoloring.

SU Vivid Vases Watercolor Final

SU Vivid Vases Watercolor Close Up

I did add some layers to my CAS design. I used my blender pens to watercolor the vases and flowers on the SU Vivid Vases image.  Remember to always use Stazon ink for watercoloring so the stamped image does not bleed or smear- it’s permanent. I also prefer using watercolor paper when I am watercoloring a larger area like the vases. If it is just a little bit of watercoloring on an image, I use my Whisper White Cardstock.

I just scribbled my Stampin” Write markers on a Corelle saucer and used that as my painter’s palette! It made it quite easy to control the amount of ink I put on my blender pen. I used the new 2014-16 IN COLORS Lost Lagoon, Tangelo Twist, and Hello Honey.


 I also used the Lost Lagoon Designer Series Paper from the Moonlight Paper Stack- the 4 1/2″ x 6″ sheets (48 of four double sided designs for $6.95!)

Item # 133701


The large scallop edgelit finished off the bottom of the Lost Lagoon panel. I embellished the card with the new luscious and easy to tie 3/8″ Stitched Satin Tangelo Twist ribbon.

Do you feel like getting out those blender pens, now? I think I have had mine for over ten years and they are still going strong. Just paint with them, clean off by squiggling on paper, and they are ready to go with another color- pretty cool and inexpensive tool to have in the crafting caddy:)

Item # 102845- $9.95



SU Vivid Vases

Happy Monday, amigos! I am so excited to be doing a product class next week with my local stamping gals using the Vivid Vases stamp set. I was playing around with the  set this past weekend and came up with this card for Freshly Made Sketches # 139.


 I used the new Blendabilities alcohol markers again and glossed up the vases with Crystal Effects. I always forget how cool Crystal Effects is! I hope you can see the effect on the second photo:) I finished it off with a Cherry Cobbler Chevron ribbon bow to create a tag look in the sketch.
