How To Sponging Technique- Stampin Up Beauty Abounds Butterfly

I used a fun sponging technique with this pretty Beauty Abounds bundle. The Butterfly dies in this set are absolutely stunning. I cut out the large, one piece butterfly die and used the negative piece to lay down on the whisper white cardstock and sponge inside with gorgeous grape ink.



The bokeh circles are included in the Beauty Abounds stamp set and they make a great background for these fluttering butterflies. I stamped them in gorgeous grape ink as well.

IMG_8576After I sponged inside the negative piece of the die cut, I then laid the cut out butterfly die over top of the sponging and attached with fine tip glue.


Gorgeous grape and balmy blue ink and cardstock, look pretty sweet together, don't you think?

Stampin Up Wonderful Romance Bundle

If this isn't the most pretty and romantic set, I don't know what is. The Wonderful Romance bundle has me head over heels in love. Its just so classy and elegant.

IMG_8579This comes with a complete suite of coordinating products. The Floral Romance designer paper, Floral Romance Seals, and of course the beautiful Lace emboss folder to name a few.

IMG_8578Again, pretty easy to color. I used the Stampin' Blends alcohol markers in blackberry bliss and old olive, with a touch of daffodil delight in the middle of the flower and crumb cake for the tiny spray of leaves. How cool is the self adhesive gold Floral Seal? It makes the card look so elegant.

IMG_8577The Floral designer paper is simply gorgeous. It includes several sheets of printed velum and the best thing about it, is that the snail adhesive doesn't show through!

This is a must have bundle and suite! Great for weddings, engagements, thinking of you and more. If you don't have it yet, you certainly should consider the worth while purchase!

Thanks for coming by today.

Until the next time...

How about a Wedding Card with the First Frost Bundle...

Taking a break from Christmas Cards for a little bit and designing a pretty wedding card- (or anniversary, shower or birthday) instead.

I used the First Frost stamp set and thinlets. I love the colors on this card. So soft and pretty however, the colors somehow look like it could still be a wintery December wedding card.


I used soft seafoam, granny apple green, mossy meadow, lovely lipstick, powder pink and flirty flamingo inks and cardstock colors.


The "Subtle Emboss Folder" gives the background a beautiful linen look.


Don't forget the inside...


A few Basic Sequins and Pearl Jewels and the card is ready to give to that special couple!

I hope you enjoyed a little break from all the Christmas themed cards for a minute. :)

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Until the next time...

Stampin' Up! Country Home stamp set in Pastel Colors

I was playing around with my Country Home stamp set and decided to try some softer pastels colors to create a card today.

I used my Stampin Blends alcohol markers to color the image. I'll list the colors below under "product list."


The Tin Tile emboss folder was used for the background. I used soft seafoam cardstock and a soft seafoam ink pad to swipe across the embossed image. I wanted it kind of splotchy.


Here's a close up. I added pearls and sequins for a bit of shimmer, as well as the Chicken Wire element behind the main image.


Here's a peek at the inside.


I love the ease of coloring with the Stampin Blends alcohol markers. It makes creating so much fun.


If you haven't decided on this set yet, I say, YES! Take the plunge and get those markers out and start coloring.

Thanks again for stopping by.

First Frost Never Disappoints

Sharing one of my favorite flower sets today. First Frost is available in the Stampin Up Holiday Catalog 2018.

I used the blackberry bliss ink for the flower image. It looks so pretty in this deep purple color. The coordinating Frosted Bouqet framelits and Frosted Floral designer paper make this the ultimate suite.


I also used tranquil tide, and mossy meadow colors for the greens.


To complete the look, I did some fun splattering by dipping my aqua painter into blackberry bliss ink and tapping it over my card.


A few pearls and gems to add dimension and sparkle and viola!


I hope you enjoyed todays card.

Stampin Up First Frost Wreath

There are so many lovely possibilites with the First Frost stamp set and dies. For this card, I decided to make a wreath as the focal point of my card.

I used night of navy and mint macaron cardstock as well as the Frosted Floral designer paper. This paper has a pearlized shimmer all over. It is stunning. So hard to catch it in a photo, though.


I used the large Stitched Circle Framelit in very vanilla as my "guide" and placed the foliage all around it.

The ink colors are night of navy, blackberry bliss and blushing bride.


I placed a matching pearl, rhinestone or gem in the middle of each flower for a little more sparkle, than tied it with a night of navy gingham ribbon across the bottom.


Such a sweet card for a wedding, graduation, new job or birthday card.

Have you bought this set yet? Its so gorgeous, and the shading of the stamps is perfect- one ink stamping and wow, 2-3 shades in one!

Thanks for stopping by today!
