Stampin' Up! Floral Wings Hostess Set: Blackberry Bliss and Tip Toe Taupe

This stamp set has become my latest favorite.  If you've been on my blog lately, you know I've made a variation of this card using red and black, black and yellow and now Tip Toe Taupe with Blackberry Bliss. It's a little tricky lining up the roses and the stems on the butterfly, but even if it's a little off, it still look s amazing.

Stampin' Up! Garden in Bloom

The Moonlight Designer Series Paper Stack used on this card is retired, but I love it. I used Blackberry Bliss on the flower and stamped off for the 2-step process so the flower would not come out too dark.  The leaves were stamped in Pear Pizzazz and Old Olive. The banner was made using my favorite new Banner Punch.

Very Vanilla Fancy Favor Box & Bottle Tag

Helped out a friend this weekend with some goodies for her Board of Education Retreat.  Made the Fancy Favor boxes for candy treats and the bottle tag serves as a placeholder with every one's name.

Technique Tuesday: Grid Technique

I used to love this Stampin' Up! stamp set...  Baroque Motifs.  This technique reminds me of a quilt more than a grid.  All you do is stamp and score.

Stampin' Up! Butterfly Basics

I first saw this card on Mary Fish's Stampin Pretty Blog.  I fell in love with the colors and the simplicity of the colors and layout.  This was one of the projects from my August Stampin Class. I'm loving this olive patterned paper... it's part of the new Stampin' Up! Designer Series Paper Pack in Brights.

Paint Chip Inspiration #21: Stampin' Up! Flower Shop

This paint chip inspiration is from fellow demonstrator Lilly Ruiz.  I like the way the Pool Party  cardstock matches the paint chip and I love the combo with white and black.  This card will work with any greeting.

Stampin' Up! Best Thoughts Hostess Set

I love to watercolor stamped images... but even this flower is too big for me.  After using an Aquapen to color the stem and the leaves with Garden Green, I realized the flower looked so pretty without color.  I only added a little color to the center of the flowers using a Daffodil Delight marker.  Love the way this card turned out.
