Climbing Orchid

Hello stampers! 

One of the "must haves" for me from the new Stampin' Up! annual catalogue was the {Climbing Orchid} stamp set and framelits dies. I was totally sold when I saw the gorgeous samples in the catalogue. Today's card was the very first time I "played" with this set so it's quite simple. Although I do think it's just enough and too much busyness would distract from the pretty flower blooms. 

I stamped the orchids with Sweet Sugar Plum with Crushed Curry centers. I stamped the stem directly onto a piece of the {Wood Textures DSP} before adding my flower blooms. 

 I added a few photos below that come directly from the pages of the catalogue and you'll see why I HAD to have this set. They are stunningly beautiful!!

Watercoloured Pencil Sunset with High Tide

Hello stampers!

Sorry for the long hiatus. I was asked to present at my Stampin' Up! Upline's event yesterday. I presented {Watercolour Pencils} and it was so much fun to sit and have some creative time just for me. I've been on the back burner while caring for my dad. Today, I have a card that I created as part of the display samples for my presentation from yesterday. It is my favourite sample and it is featuring the {High Tide} set, which I love. 

I absolutely love the beach so I really wanted to pull out this amazing stamp set which is perfect for a sunset. I used a bunch of different pencil colours - Real Red, Rich Razzleberry, Pacific Point, Bermuda Bay, Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight and Early Espresso for the "land" area that I drew. There is something about the watercolour pencils that is like magic. You colour like you would normally colour, then when you add water it magically turns into a painting. So fun to play with and so many of the event attendees were excited to try them out. I hope you like my card, I have a bunch more cards to share with you this week. I hope to see you soon!

NEW Product Videos

Hello stampers! 

The brand new Annual Catalogue by Stampin' Up! went live a few days ago and is fabulous as always. I unfortunately haven't had an opportunity to "play" with any of my new stamping toys just yet as I have been caring for an ill family member and that takes precedence. I am hoping to have a chance sometime this week so I can share some projects with you all. 

Luckily Stampin' Up! has made a bunch of videos for us to share with all of you and they showcase some of the amazing new products and give you the "how to's". 

Here are a few of my favourites: 

You can find all the product videos under the "tab" at the top of my blog labeled "Product Videos". I hope you have an amazing day (even with the rain).
