Bloomin’ Blendabilities

Debra Burgin Bloomin' Blendabilities classYes — it’s a chorus line of blooms!  I think it’s fair to say that every one of the participants at last week’s Bloomin’ Blendabilities class was thrilled with the results of their final project.  We made a lot of improvement in one evening!  We started with a simple image, then kept experimenting and practicing coloring with Stampin’ Up! Blendabilities Markers.  It was so fun — I’m pretty sure some people left before they really wanted to!

I’m offering the Bloomin’ Blendabilities class again on Wednesday, September 24.  You can find more details on my Stampin’ Up! Events page here.  Note that the deadline to register is Monday, September 15.

Welcome, Holiday Catalog!

HolidayCatalogTH_0714_NAIt’s here, it’s here — 52 pages (yes, I’m counting the covers!) of fun!  Click the catalog image here to see all the 2014 Holiday Catalog products in one place.

One of the advantages I enjoy as a Stampin’ Up! Independent Demonstrator is that I see this early (this year at convention in July) and can order from it early (the beginning of August).  So I’ve been stamping, cutting, and punching new things for the upcoming seasons — and loving it!

If you normally receive a catalog from me (or if you don’t get yours from anyone else), please contact me!

It’s For You!

Debra Burgin It's for youI am really hooked on these little note cards!  And how about those trendy circles?  At convention one of the artists showed us how to draw these using the mask.  So simple and fun!

You made my day!

Debra Burgin You Made My DayThis card is serving double duty.  First, one of my stampin’ friends surprised me at camp last week with the Downton Abbey 2014 Page-a-Day Calendar!  I was absolutely delighted, and as I wrote in this card, never have I been so anxious to start a new year!  And are you as impatient as I am for the new DA season to start?

Second, the floral image was colored with Stampin’ Blendabilities Markers in preparation for my first Bloomin’ Blendabilities class later this week.  I am looking forward to this class (totally full!) because I have had such fun practicing my technique and creating the handout.  I hope the participants will be equally enthusiastic — if I hear from enough of my stampers, I’ll offer another class in mid-September.

I’m really pleased with this card (from the Note Cards & Envelopes pack) because it’s so true to my current style:  a scrap of ribbon, a some doily fluff, and the tiniest bit of bling (on the center of the flowers).

Hello + flags

Debra Burgin 1408 HelloA project by Mary Brown inspired this card for my August camps.  It’s so simple and — if you’re not anal about the flag spacing and alignment — pretty fast, too.  (Notice the precision spacing and alignment on my sample card and draw your own conclusions about me.)  The Moonlight DSP Paper Stack is perfect for this project — and many others!

I like you!

Debra Burgin I Like You 2It all started with a scrap of paper … does this ever happen to you?  I couldn’t bear to throw away the practice piece I had done for my Blendabilities class, so I kept stamping, and trimming down, and digging for more to put on the card!

This spatter stamp from Gorgeous Grunge really deserves to be permanently mounted on its very own clear block — I use it so much!  Do you remember Itty Bitty Backgrounds?  It took me a long time to order it, then I couldn’t live without it!
