A Washi Tape Tea Party

Tea Party, Washi Tape

If you haven’t purchased any Washi Tape, you really need to.  This stuff is awesome!  It works like scotch tape.  You just peel off a piece and stick it on your card.  It is that simple.  You don’t even need scissors to rip it off.  Really, if you haven’t bought any you have to try it.  “Try it.  You will love it.”

The tea pot with the flowers is from the stamp set called Tea Party.  It is in the Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog.  I used markers to color it the different colors.  The sentiment is from a stamp set that is in the 2015 Occasions Catalog called Crazy About You.  There are 30 different word stamps in the set and it comes in Wood Mount, Clear Mount or Photopolymer.

Painted Petals

Painted Petals

Painted Petals is a stamp set that is in the Stampin’ Up! Occasions Catalog.  It is a two-step stamp set which means you use two stamps to make one image.  In this case the leaves are one stamp and the flowers are another.  This set is for every taste becausr it comes in your choice of wood mount, clear mount and Photopolymer.  I am a wood mount girl but I bought this set in Photopolymer because it makes it so much easier to line up the two stamps.  Photopolymer stamps are actually clear so once you ink it you can see exactly where you need to stamp.  As a side note, I purposely did not try to line up the flowers.  Oh, and try not to tie the ribbon upside down (as I did!).

Hello You Thanks

Hello You

I just realized when I was posting this card that is has absolutely no stamping on it!  How can that be?  I guess sometimes you don’t need to actually stamp to make a nice card.

I did use a punch and my Big Shot.  There aren’t too many cards I make nowadays where I don’t use one or the other.  The flowers were punched from the Itty Bitty Punch Pack.  The ‘thanks” was cut out using the Hello You Thinlits and my Big Shot.  To make small or thin dies come out easily, all you need to do it put a piece of waxed paper between the card stock and the die.  It makes the card stock pop out so much easier.

Birthday Bash

I was looking at Pinterest today and saw a sketch challenge that I liked so I decided to participate in it.  It is from Techno Stamper and it is called Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge 355.  Here is what the sketch challenge looks like:

Petal Potpourri Blendabilities

Petal Potpourri, Blendabilities

I don’t have an eye for art.  This is one of the reasons I love to stamp because even the uncreative people like me can do it.  Stampin’ Up! makes is even easier because everything coordinates so there is no guessing.  Stampin’ Up! also puts out a lot of videos showing how to use their products.  This makes it even easier!

I used the stamp set called Petal Potpourri to make this card.  This set is in the 2015 Occasions Catalog and it has a matching punch (buy both and save 15%).  It is a perfect set to use with the Blendabilities.  The flowers on this card are actually flat but the way I colored them using the Blendabilities makes them seem like they curl.  I thought it looks kind of cool (I know.  My kids call me a geek).  All I did was color the flowers using the darkest colors on the ends and in the center and then used the lightest color in the middle.  It is easy.  If I can do it, so can you!

Don’t forget that you can get a free set of Blendabilities with every $50 purchase until March 31st during Sale-a-bration!  It is a great way to try them out!

Watercolor Challenge

This week’s Watercolor Challenge is a sketch challenge.  I love sketch challenges because it makes it so much easier to come up with a card.  All you need to do is pick some stamps and colors and follow the sketch.  Here is this week’s sketch:

Here is my card:

Balloon Bash

I used the stamp set called Balloon Bash.  It is in the 2015 Stampin’ Up! Occasions Catalog.  It is a Photopolymer Stamp set which makes it so easy to line things up.  This card did take a little “fussy” cutting but the lines were mostly straight so it wasn’t hard to do.  To see the other Watercolor artist’s creations click HERE.
