Touches of Texture Video

Today is a very big day for me.  It is the reveal of my very first video ever.  It was produced by our 11 year old granddaughter.  I'm very proud of her for helping me learn how to use my iPhone and iMovie for this exciting addition to my blog.  I hope you enjoy this new addition to my postings.

Not only that, but August marks my 10th year anniversary with Stampin' Up!....


Touches of Texture is my favorite stamp set in the big catalog.  It is a wonderful set to work with and today I combined it with the new in-colors and the Playful Palette DSP stack #141657.



Stamp Sets:  Touches of Texture, Thoughtful Banners, Suite Sayings




I used my Aqua Painter with a little Dapper Denim and Emerald Envy to create a realistic Dragonfly.

Colors:  Peekaboo Peach, Sweet Sugarplum, Emerald Envy, Very Vanilla, Dapper Demin, Early Espresso

Here is my first video to demonstrate how to make this card.  For the best viewing quality, you may want to view it on my YouTube Channel here.








Tools and Accessories:  Linen Thread, Paper Doily, Duet Banner Punch, Paper Trimmer

Here For You

Sometimes you need a card that doesn't say "get well" and this stamp set, Here for You, has the perfect sentiment selection for encouraging greetings.  I love it.




Stamp Sets:  Thoughtful Branches, Here for You

Using Smoky Slate cardstock and 9 3/4" Chevron Ribbon, I used the darker Basic Gray Archival Ink for the branches.  Watermelon Wonder birds and an edge rubbed on the Basic Gray Archival Ink stamp pad complete the circle.





Colors:  Basic Gray, Smoky Slate, Watermelon Wonder

Thoughtful Branches Christmas

Hello, How are you spending your August?  It's been very hot here in Pennsylvania....so we are trying to keep cool!  I've been playing with Thoughtful Branches and have a few cards to share with you this week.  Since it's so hot, I thought I would begin with a Christmas card inspired by fellow Demo, Dena Rebow.



I began by stamping the bare tree in Sahara Sand on the Sahara Sand cardstock before stamping with Whisper White pigment ink for the needles and snow mounds.

Stamp Sets:  Thoughtful Branches, Jar of Cheer, Christmas Pines
(both the Jar of Cheer and Christmas Pines stamp sets will be available to customers in the new Holiday Catalog on September 1)


It is hard to see in the photo, but under the embossed snow mounds I used the Aqua Painter with Sahara Sand ink to create shadows.



Colors:  Dapper Demin, Whisper White, Sahara Sand

Tools and Accessories:  Heat Tool, Embossing Buddy, White Embossing Powder, Aqua Painter, Washi Tape




Hope you enjoy Christmas in August!  I love Christmas all year long.  Sorry that I can't show you the Christmas Stamp sets yet.....soon September 1 will be here and all will be revealed.

Balloon Celebration

Balloons represent fun, surprise, celebration and happiness and the Balloon Celebration stamp set has a little bit of all of those wrapped up inside.  Here is a quick and easy card using the Balloon Celebration stamp set.




I used the new Ombre Rich Razzleberry Stampin' Pad to stamp the balloons and just love the look. Clouds were stamped with both Soft Sky and Pool Party. 



Colors:  Rich Razzleberry, Soft Sky, Pool Party, Basic Gray Archival Ink
