Video Tutorial - Two Step Stamping Using Stampin' Up!'s Brand New Picture Perfect Stamp Set

Hi everyone! Well, we survived the blizzard!  Forty inches of snow, can you believe it?  Ugh!  We're still digging out but the roads are much better and things are slowly getting back to normal.  I have an elegant card and video tutorial to share with you today so I'll get right to it.  Here's my card using the two step stamping technique and the brand new Picture Perfect stamp set from Stampin' Up!'s 2016 Occasions Catalog:


And here's a video tutorial I prepared to show you how super easy it is to create these gorgeous images from this stamp set:

I was so excited to share this video and this card with you guys.  I truly felt like an artist after stamping these images and that's because Stampin' Up! has created such an amazing and easy to use stamp set.  I hope you find this video useful and that you will be just as excited about this stamp set as I am :)  I will link for you below all the items I used to create this card.  Thanks as always so much for stopping by.  I'm so grateful for all my viewers and customers.  Hug hugs to you!

Dear Friend - Watercoloring brand new Stampin' Up! image

Hi everyone! Happy Wednesday! Hope you are having a great week. It's supposed to snow a lot here starting on Friday so I'm not looking forward to that. I'm just not meant for the cold! :) Anyway, I have another card to share with you today. This one also uses water coloring technique using blender pens and ink pads.  The gorgeous image is from the brand new Birthday Blooms stamp set from the 2016 Stampin' Up! Occasions Catalog.  I just love this flower image, it's my favorite!  Here's my card:

What's so great about the water coloring/blender pen technique is that I colored this entire image using 3 ink pads!  Yep, just three!  The flower was done using Melon Mambo, the leaves using Wild Wasabi, and I used some Daffodil Delight for the yellow in the center of the flower.  It's hard to see in the picture, but I also added tons of sparkle to the flower using the brand new clear Wink of Stella pen found in the Occasions Catalog.  All the supplies you need to create this card are listed below. 

Thanks so much as always for stopping by!

Huge Hugs,

Love Bug - Watercoloring Using Brand New Product from Stampin' Up!'s 2016 Occasions Catalog

Hi everyone! I'm so sorry it's been so long since I've posted.  It seemed I couldn't keep myself or my little one well and then there were the holidays.  Then we started the new year with more sickies (my three year old has been so sick, poor baby!)  But I'm glad to say we're all on the mend and I'm ready to dive back into my blog and sharing Stampin' Up!'s amazing products with you.

As you probably know, it's Sale-A-Bration time!  That means, for ever $50 you spend between now and March 31 (and that can be $50 on anything from any catalog), you get to pick a free item from the Sale-A-Bration catalog.  There are so many wonderful stamp sets, paper packs, and even vellum in the Sale-A-Bration catalog.  Plus, the brand new Occasions Catalog has so many wonderful goodies in it!  It truly is an exciting time for Stampin' Up!  If you'd like to request a free copy of the Occasions and Sale-A-Bration catalogs, please send me an email at christinemriley@gmail.com and I'm happy to send them out to you.  So, without further adieu, let me share my project for today using a brand new stamp set from the Occasions Catalog.

How adorable are these images!  The stamps are from the brand new Beautiful Ride stamp set.  I used my Blender Pens and inks to color the image.  All the supplies I used are listed below.  I hope you like it :)

Thanks so much as always for stopping by.  Huge hugs!
