Layer Stamping with Stampin' Up!'s Sweet Cupcake Stamp Set

Hi everyone!  I have a super simple but fun card to share with you today using Stampin' Up!'s Sweet Cupcake stamp set.  This set uses layer stamping to create a dimensional cupcake with dimensional icing and cake.  I used all Stampin' Up! products to create this card.  Here's my video tutorial on how I made this card:
Part One:




Part Two:




And here are a couple pictures of the card:





To create this card, I stamped the icing with Blushing Bride, Flirty Flamingo, and Melon Mambo ink from Stampin' Up!  The cake was stamped with Crumb Cake, Soft Suede and Early Espresso.  I used a confetti stamp from the stamp set and inked it with Chocolate Chip ink and stamped it onto Crumb Cake cardstock to create my background.  I cut a square out with the stitched shapes dies and  then put my card together, using dimensionals for some added pop.  I used white embossing powder to emboss the sentiment.  Finally, I added some enamel dots and rhinestones.  If you are interested in any of the products I used today, please visit my Stampin' Up! store here.  What do you think?


Well, that's it from me today.  Thanks so much as always for stopping by.  Huge hugs!

Je t'aime: Layer Stamping with Hero Arts

Hi everyone and I hope you are having a wonderful weekend.  I have a fun card to share today using the newly released Layering Croissant stamp set and coordinating dies.  Here's my card:






I used all Stampin Up products to create the card.  For the croissant, I used Peekaboo pink ink, Pumpkin Pie, and Tangerine Tango.  For the blueberries, I used Marina Mist and Island Indigo.  For the strawberries, I used Real Red and Rose Red ink and for the raspberries, I used Blushing Bride and Rose Red.  I used the new hearts embossing folder and ran that through my Big Shot with Crumb Cake cardstock.  I then adhered everything to Whisper White card base using dimensionals.  I also added lots of Glossy Accents to the fruit.  What do you think?


Well, that's it for me today.  Thanks so much as always for stopping by.


Huge Hugs,


Christine

MFT and Watercoloring









Hi everyone!!!  I have a super cute card to share with you today using the adorable Space Explorer stamp set from MFT and the Coordinating Dies.  I colored the cute astronaut, space ship, planets, and the moon with copic markers.  I then created my background with Stampin' Up! inks and watercolor paper.  I used some white acrylic paint to splatter on the background to look like stars.  If you are interested in any of the Stampin' Up proudcts, I used, feel free to visit my store HERE.  This technique was so much fun.  I also used my Wink of Stella glitter pen and some Glossy Accents to create some interest.  I used Stampin' Up white embossing powder on the sentiment and then cut the ends to give it a banner type look.  I also used some Stampin' Up silver thread behind the sentiment panel for some interest.  I popped everything up with Stampin' Up dimensionals.  What do you think? 


Thanks so much as always for stopping by.  Until next time :)

New Stampin' Up! Spring Occasions Catalog and Sale-A-Bration!!!!!

Hi everyone!!!  I know, I know, it's been way too long since I have posted and I'm so sorry about that.  I recently got a new job and we moved to a new city.  It's been a very good change for all of us, but as you can imagine with a 7 month old and a 4 year old, it's been pretty crazy and busy! :) Anyway, I'm back to crafting with my new craft area all set up and I'm so excited to share today's card with you! 

Starting today, the new Spring Occasions Catalog is live and oh my goodness, you are going to LOVE the new products!  I promise!  Today also starts Stampin' Up!'s Sale A Bration and you know what that means . . . FREE goodies! :) 



Today's card features a brand new stamp set from the Occasions Catalog called Beautiful You.  It is full of wonderful images, I just love this new stamp set.  Guess what SU also brought back in the Occasions catalog . . . watercolor pencils!  Oh I'm so happy, they are wonderful!  I stamped the image with Staz On black ink and then used my watercolor pencils and a blender pen to color the image.  I had to put some silver glimmer paper on the card to brighten things up.  The silver ribbon is from the Sale-A-Bration catalog!  I hope you love it and I hope you will take some time to check out all the amazing new products Stampin' Up! has to offer.  I'll link for you below all the products I used to make this card.  Have a wonderful day and thanks so much for stopping by! :)

Hugs,
