Remarkable You

Remarkable You- Part Two

I thought I would go ahead and share the other two cards that I made with the Remarkable You stamp set. I haven't had time to make any Christmas cards lately, other than the Christmas ornaments and make n takes for my team Christmas party and the cards for Kim's card class that will both be held next week- so I don't want to post them yet or I'll ruin the surprise. I will post those things next week though, so no worries.

I used the same copper emboss powder and watercolor paper as I did on my previous cards. I changed up some of the colors as you can see. This one uses flirty flamingo, melon mambo, pear pizazz and wild wasabi.

I added the pearls and melon mambo stitched ribbon as well as a splatter of copper embossing to the background. For the splatter, I simply used the splatter stamp from the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set and inked it in the versa mark ink pad, then poured the copper emboss powder over it and heated it up with the heat tool. Viola- instant splatter and shine.

I used the cala lily on the final card. I just adore all the flowers in the Remarkable You stamp set. This one I colored in blues. Soft sky, marina mist and dapper denim were the main colors of the cala lily. I don't know if cala lilies actually come in blue, but it looked like a good color to me.

Once again, I splattered the background with copper emboss powder as I did in the card above. I used sahara sand ink from the lid of the ink pad and an aqua painter to give the background a nice color wash.

I hope the recipients enjoyed their special cards as much as I enjoyed creating them.

Thanks again for visiting today!

Until the next time...

Remarkable You- Cards for friends

I was excited to get to use one of my favorite flower themed stamp sets to make cards for a couple friends who are pretty amazing.

The "Remarkable You" stamp set is one of those sets that is so beautiful, no matter what color or what layout it is stamped in.

I knew I wanted to emboss and watercolor these cards, because this set looks beautiful with both techniques.

I used watercolor paper and copper emboss powder and then colored in the flowers with my aquapainters and ink from the lids of my ink pads.

This card uses watermelon wonder, flirty flamingo and bermuda bay inks and cardstocks.

I added a few pearl jewels and beautiful ribbon to accent this card.

I also used the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set for the splattered background. I couldn't live without the Gorgeous Grunge splatter stamp!

Here's a card also stamped with the Remarkable You stamp set. This time I used marina mist, island indigo, pear pizazz and wild wasabi inks on the watercolor paper.

 I added the "Petal Burst" emboss folder to emboss the marina mist cardstock, and a cluster of copper thread behind the lotus flower.

After I took this photo, I added a few small pearl jewels in the background. I wish I would have taken another photo, but even without the pearls, this card still has that simple beauty.

I have a couple more cards made with this stamp set to share with you later in the week, so stop back to take a look!

Until the next time...

Stampin' Up! Remarkable You Stamp Set- Gorgeous-ness

I don't know what it is about the flowers in this stamp set, but they speak to me in a delightful way. I guess I love the scratchy lines and giant sketched images. It doesn't hurt that cala lilys were the flowers that made up my wedding bouquet, way back in the 80's. (although, on this card, I used water lilies)

I went all out on this card, with bold colors, sparkle and bling. As you can see, I didn't hold back.

The colors I used are real red, pool party and tempting turquoise. I embossed all the flowers with gold emboss powder, cut them out and attached them with dimensionals. I love how they make a bold statement on this card.

The Striped Scallop thinlit is truly one of the prettiet dies ever. I used it with gold foil paper over the tempting turquoise cardstock. It looks amazing against the gorgeous blue color.

I attached the gold sequin trim around the oval framelit with glue dots. I layed down the dots around the edge of the oval and then placed the sequin trim around the oval. Its difficult to see, but the oval is embossed with the deccorative dots emboss folder to give it some dimension.

Lots of gold thread and dainty pearls make this card a show stopper, for sure.

The immense color, the sparkle and shine is what makes this my kind of card. I love it when I have time to create with no limits!

I hope you are able to create with no limits sometime soon. Oh what fun it is!

Until next time...
