This cute little fox is delivering a Valentine's Day message today. "LIFE IN THE FOREST" is one of my favorite stamp sets right now. I kept the card simple and monochromatic so the red balloon really pops. I like how it goes over the edges of the card. Thankfully Stampin' Up! offers the envelope punch board now so I can make a customized envelope for this card.
What's the next best thing to sending your friend a bouquet of flowers for her birthday? Sending a Stampin' Up! paper flower bouquet on a birthday card. The stamp set "Petit Petals" comes with a matching punch which makes creating the most beautiful cards really quick and easy.
For the background I stamped the flowers randomly on Whisper White Cardstock. Then I stamped the same flowers with StazOn on Vellum and layered it on top. Stamp and punch out some flowers on colored card stock for the bouquet, add a sentiment and some rhinestones, DONE.

I am really having a lot of fun with this stamp set. I am also enjoying to experiment with the watercolor background. Here is another take on the Simply Sketched Thank You card. To achieve the different shades for the "thank you" I inked my stamp and stamped off on a piece of scrap paper.
Card Stock: Whisper White, Real Red, Gumball Green, DSP
Stamps: Simply Sketched, Express Yourself
Ink / Marker: Real Red, Gumball Green, Black StazOn
Accessories: Aqua Painter, Blender Pen, Crystal Effects, Dazzling Diamonds
To add a little bling I filled the flower with Crystal Effects and carefully sprinkled some glitter around the edges.
For this card I used the hostess set "Simply Sketched" from the 2013/2014 catalog. This set is so versatile and so much fun.
The image was stamped with black StazOn on Watercolor paper and colored with the Stampin' Up! markers. Then I heat embossed the picture with clear embossing powder and watercolored the background right over it. Stamp the sentiment, add a little ribbon bow and a few rhinestones for the bling and voilà.

It's that time of year again: Sale-A-Bration time! Free product for every fifty dollar purchase. Can it get any better? The catalog will go live on January 28th, 2014. Here is a sneak peak. For the card below I used the "See Ya Later" stamp set that you can earn for free during Sale-A-Bration.
LOVE YOU TO THE MOON - This stamp set is sooooo cute. When I browsed through the new Occasions catalog it jumped right at me. I stamped the rocket with the planet on a Window sheet with white StazOn, cut it out and cut a hole a little larger than a dimensional (with the CIRCLES COLLECTION FRAMELITS DIES) through the middle of the planet. Then I stamped only the rocket on Whisper White, colored it, cut it out and attached it to the Window sheet. After that I stamped the planet on Summer Starfruit card stock, cut that one out and attached it on my card with a dimensional through the middle of the hole in my window sheet. Now the rocket can spin around the planet when you move the card.
"What you might ask is here". I am talking about the new 2014 Occasions catalog. It went live on January 3rd and products will be available until June 1st. I am so excited, there is so much fun stuff in the new catalog. Click on the picture below to see what Stampin' Up! has to offer.
I finally had the time to play with some of my new stamps, dies and embellishments. So stay tuned and stop by soon to see my projects.
