Christmas Angel

Hi Stamping Friends.  I hope you survived Thanksgiving!  I saw this angel on the web, and had to make it.  It's made using the large scallop circle punch with a wedge cut out...the wedge is used for the body.  The edges are sponged in bashful blue and glittered with dazzling diamonds.  The head is a 3/4" circle sponged with pink pirouette and eyes drawn in.  The other colors on the card are black, bashful blue, whisper white and champagne glitter.  The sentiment is from the More Merry Messages (which is on sale until the 28th).  To place your Stampin' Up! order click here or feel free to email me your order.

Water Stamping Birthday

Hi Stamping Friends.  This is one of the cards we made in the technique club the other day.  The technique is called water stamping.  The colors are Cherry Cobbler and Tangerine Tango.  To do the technique, simply generously sponge Cherry Cobbler and Tangerine Tango randomly on Whisper White (or very vanilla) cardstock.  Place a well saturated with water paper towel (folded in half) in a pan or dish....this will be the stamp pad.  Use a flourish type stamp (I used Everything Eleanor) and place the stamp on the paper towel to get it nice and wet, then stamp the wet stamp onto the sponged background.  As the water dries it creates the ghosted image.  I found darker colored ink seemed to work better.  The clock is from the stamp set Forever Young stamped in Black Stazon.

Faux Silk Birthday

Hi Stamping Friends.  Today's card uses the Faux Silk technique.  It's so much prettier in real life.  The colors are soft suede, cherry cobbler, and very vanilla.  The stamps are the music notes wheel and the single "Happy Birthday" stamp embossed in gold. The single stamps are great!  I wasn't real fond of the stamp set that the happy birthday was a part of, and this way I was able to get it without getting the entire set.  Click here to find out what stamps are available.

Full of Blessings

Hi Stamping Friends.  With Thanksgiving fast approaching, I thought I would post the Thanksgiving card that we made at our card ministry class last week.  The colors are Always Artichoke, Rich Razzleberry, and Very Vanilla.  The stamp sets are Full of Blessings and Day of Gratitude, and the pumpkin is made using three Pumpkin Pie ovals punched from the oval punch.

Mitten Top Flowers

Hi Stamping Friends.  I love it when a punch can be used for other things than when it was originally intended.  The flowers and butterfly in this card do just that! The top of the mitten is what I used for the flowers and butterfly.  I stamped the mitten tops on more mustard card stock in versamark and embossed with clear embossing powder.  Then I punched them with the mitten builder punch ... and now we have flowers and butterflies!  And did you notice the leaves on the flowers?  The mitten thumb ... how cool is that! The colors for the card are more mustard, always artichoke, very vanilla and Howlstooth & Scaringbone Designer Series Paper (nope not just for Halloween).  I ran out of always artichoke seam binding ribbon, so I used the ribbon border punch in always artichoke for the decorative side. This idea was featured in our Stampin' Success magazine (for demonstrators only).  There are so many cool benefits of being a Stampin' Up! demonstrator.  Grea
