The Little Mermaid?

I almost didn't order this stamp set, even though I liked it and have been wanting a mermaid stamp set.

I wasn't sure how I would make it look as good as it should. But, I came up with an idea and I think it turned out just right!

This one was embossed with copper emboss powder and framed with copper foil paper. The card color is wisteria wonder. I colored it in with an aqua painter and drops of re-inkers.

The water color paper is perfect for the amount of water I used to water color the background and the mermaid.

Here I used a different color card- soft sky and pool party. I think I like these colors even better. I also used silver emboss powder and silver foil paper for one of the mermaids.

This is the silver up close. Got to love those Iridescent Sequin Assortment. They remind me of bubbles!

All the little mermaids in a row.

Zippity and Zesty- Stampin' Up Swap

Have I mentioned that I love this Lemon Zest stamp set and coordinating Lemon Builder Punch? Well, if I haven't, let me just say that I do love it! I like that I can use bright and sunny colors and it looks super sweet.

This is a card that I designed for a special swap that I host with other members of the Stampin Up Advisory Board Alumni.

I wanted to wait to post it, so that all the swappers had their cards back and I wouldn't ruin the surprise.

I used the daffodil delight, lemon lime twist and basic black inks as well as the lemon lime twist, basic black, daffodil delight and whisper white cardstocks.

I attached the lemon over cardstock that was embossed with the Layering Leaves emboss folder. I think it goes perfect with this stamp set.

Naturally I had to add a few Glitter Enamel Dots scattered around the card. The colors go so well with the inks and cardstock that I used.

And how about that stunning berry burst ribbon? Its so vibrant and gorgeous.

Here's a bunch ready to be shipped out to my fellow demonstrator friends.

Seriously, this card makes me so happy and giddy. I just can't get enough of this yummy stamp set!

Stampin Up Oh So Eclectic

I have a cool card to share with you that we made at Card Class this week. Its made with the Oh So Eclectic Bundle.

This is the stamp set that is featured on the front of the New Stampin' Up Catalog. Its one of my favorites.
This set paired with the Eclectic Layer Thinlits and the coordinating Naturally Eclectic designer paper, is a real show stopper.

IMG_7215

This was a favorite of all the cards at class. It was very simple and super cool. I layed a piece of designer paper behind the die cut image. It think it kind of looks like stained glass.

IMG_7217

I used peek a boo peach and berry burst inks to match the designer paper. I also used soft sky and tranquil tide cardstock which also matched the paper. I love how beautiful those colors look together. And so super simple to make.

IMG_7216

Well, thats all for now folks. I'll be leaving on the Stampin' Up! Incentive trip to Thailand next week and I won't have my laptop.

I'll be posting again before I leave, but I'll be off the grid for a couple of weeks.

Thanks for dropping by today.

Until the next time...

Stampin Up Coffee Cafe Bundle

So, I was playing around with this set, trying to think of something unique to do with it. I didn't really come up with anything spectacular, but I do think it turned out pretty cute. Maybe when I have more time to experiment, I can do some really fun stuff, like maybe make the lid out of acrylic sheets or something cool like that.

I do really like the colors- soft sky, crumb cake and early espresso. Blue and brown shades always look so complimentary together, don't you think?

IMG_7200

I wasn't sure if I was going to like the new Garden Trellis emboss folder, but I actually love it! I used it twice here. Once forward and once backward. I like the way it looks both ways. I added Wink of Stella to the whipped cream - its so shimmery and shiny.

IMG_7201

I think I use the Glitter Enamel Dots on just about everything. How can I not? They are so pretty! I added one to the knot on the crumb cake ribbon.

Makes me want to make a Starbucks run... it looks so yummy!

I hope you enjoyed my Coffee Cafe card. I can't wait to make more coffee cards with this fun bundle!

Thanks for stopping by.

Until the next time...

Stampin' Up! Lemon Zest is the Best!

I've been working on swaps, and my card classes and workshops this past week. I've got sooooo much to do in my stampin up world right now, I don't know when I'll finally catch up- but hopefully soon!

I'm sharing one of the cards that I made for the Stampin' Up Leaders Swap. You all know I love fruit stamps, and this one is no exception. Its called Lemon Zest and it also comes in a bundle with the Lemon Builder Punch. I'm having fun using all kinds of bright colors with this set. Two of the colors are the new "In Colors" lemon lime twist and berry burst. They are YUMMY!

IMG_5521

I also used daffodil delight ink on the lemons. A fold of crushed curry mini chevron ribbon and a couple of ombre Glitter enamel dots to give this card the extra "pop" appeal.

IMG_5522

Here's a small bunch- getting ready to be mailed out to the other leaders.

Well, back to work. I've got to get all my stampin' projects finished before I leave on my trip!

Thanks for checking in today.

Until the next time...
