Paint Chip Inspiration #9: Colorful Paint Strip with Butterfly

This is one of my projects from my March class.  My sample card is in Green, but the girls got to choose their own color combo and decorate accordingly.  Love all the colors... I want to make a card in each color.

Bokeh Stamping

This technique seems to be every where these days.  The name is weird, but it comes from photography and basically it is supposed to look like blurry lights.  Like when you are trying to take a picture of your Christmas tree and the lights are gleaming and they look blurry.  It's very cool!

I will be posting instructions shortly.

Confirmation Card: Lattice Cross

Recently I was asked to make confirmation invitations for a friend.  Love the way this turned out.  I used the Stampin' Up! Lattice Die Cut to make the cross.  Very Vanilla and Brushed Gold card stock.

Paint Chip Inspiration #8: Easter Bunny

I made this card a few years ago, but it's so cute that I had to share it as part of my Paint Chip Inspiration series.  The eggs were punched out from paint chip strips using the Stampin' Up! Small Oval Punch.  The bunny is also made with all different sized punches.

Bokeh Card: Stampin' Up! The Open Sea

I've seen various versions of this technique and for a while I didn't even know it had a name.  I was calling it my "dauber card" since I used daubers to create this effect.  I used Night of Navy, Pool Party, Smoky Slate and I stamped off on some of them for a lighter effect.

Paint Chip Inspiration #7: Sympathy Card

This paint chip inspiration card was made by my guest stamper, Lilly Ruiz.  I love the simplicity and elegance of this card.  I guess my obsession with paint chips these days has rubbed off on my friends.

Stampin' Up! Easter Inspiration from the Archives...

I pulled out a few Easter projects from many years ago...  these ideas are still relevant and a good source of inspiration for my new Easter projects.

Used chipboard coasters to make this Accordion Photo display

This little candy pouch was made with a regular sized envelope.  Seal the envelope and cut out the corners to make a handle.
