Hot Air Birthday Balloon

Thanks, Paula Wright, for inspiring this card!  Camp cards this month are for the guys — but I don’t know why a woman wouldn’t enjoy this particular one.  We got this set, You’re Amazing, at Convention last year, but this … Continue reading

Butterfly sympathy

If there’s a card that shows off Stampin’ Up!’s attention to coordination, it’s this one (inspired by Diana Gibbs).  Not only is there color coordination (Marina Mist Designer Series Paper, ink, and brad), but two butterfly punches and the piercing … Continue reading

A spring thank you

This is one of the cards available to make at Saturday’s All-Occasions Stamp-a-Stack.  (Thanks to Amy O’Neill for the inspiration.)  It’s simple — as are all the cards.  That little piece of Designer Series Paper creates a lot of drama, … Continue reading

Bunny Egg

Watercolor Paper is the secret to this card — it makes it so easy to watercolor with crayons and an Aqua Painter, but I also love coloring on Shimmery White.  Something about that paper keeps it from disintegrating when using … Continue reading

Ears to You

I haven’t heard that any of the single stamps released recently will appear in the next Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog.  I’m doubtful.  And so if you love this stamp as much as I do, you’ll want to make sure you … Continue reading

A rainbow of Easter Blessings

Kimberly Van Diepen recently shared this technique; I loved the effect and decided to feature it as the March Watercolor Wash technique card.  (We now have nine cards on the Technique Ring!)  Repetitive swipes of a very wet Aqua Painter … Continue reading

A Spring Sampler trio

These small images in Spring Sampler (p. 23 Spring Catalog) are adorable and lend themselves to a variety of techniques.  They would be sweet as punched postage stamps, but perhaps you already guessed that they are hidden under the windows … Continue reading

Penny farthing in motion

I’m having chest pains at the thought that Sale-A-Bration will be over at 11:05 MT on Friday.  We’ve been talking about SAB for so long, we’ve been creating with the products for months, and I’ve been working like crazy to … Continue reading

Dress form simplicity

As you can see, I credit Laura Milligan with the origins of this design.  I loved her sponging (careful on that First Edition paper!) and the simple embellishment of the dress form. Such a pretty card, don’t you think? Ink:  … Continue reading
