Vintage Leaves Watercolor

This is for my sister who has some health issues that she is struggling with right now.

I cased this card from fellow SU Demo Billie Moan at Rambling Rose Studio.  Where Billie lightly stamped the images to be translucent I stamped them with a much heavier hand which caused them to retain their pattern when watercolored.  Check out Billie's beautiful card here:

Happiest Birthday to Shelli

This Birthday Card is for Shelli Gardner at Stampin' Up who celebrates her birthday this month. I used a mix of current and retired SU stamp sets for the background. The photo actually shows a second card I made trying to remember the first card's layout as I forgot to photograph the original card before I popped it in the mail. I am really happy with the way it turned out.

Stampin' Up:  Swirly Bird, Snuggles & Smooches, Flowering Fields, Love & Affection, Birthday Blooms stamp sets.

Pumpkin Spice Blessed

Pumpkin Spice Tea Bags for my Workshop attendees.  I am hoping that this spicy drink brings a fall like atmosphere to our next Workshop, since here on the central coast of California, it has been very hot and dry.

Indian Summer for National Card Making Day

Photos showing the process of making the background paper with the Stampin' Up Botanical Blooms Stamp Set and matching die set

With an 4" x 5 1/4" piece of card stock, die cut the leaves and flowers that you will be using as a template.  With a 12" x 10 1/2" piece of whisper white card stock, randomly stamp the leaf stamps in Archival Black ink leaving room to add some flowers

Using the template, lay it over each element and with sponge daubers move over the leaf cut areas around the edges with Delightful Dijon, then with Always Artichoke towards the middle.  Using Marina Mist go around the edges of the flowers, add a dab of Delightful Dijon to the centers.

Continue working around your paper.

Finished piece.  Cut finished piece into six 4" x 5 1/4" pieces.
