Above the Clouds With Watercolor Pencils:

I LOVE the Above the Clouds Bundle that is in the *NEW* Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog.  A hot air balloon punch and coordinating stamp set?!  Why yes, please!  But...you also can use the stamp set without the punch.  I stamped, embossed, and watercolored these balloons.  And fell in love with them even more along the way.  😍😍😍 Hee. 



Colors: Coastal Cabana, Melon Mambo, Granny Apple Green, Rich Razzleberry, Calypso Coral, Bermuda Bay, Daffodil Delight, Whisper White
Inks: VersaMark, Watercolor Pencils, Watercolor Pencils Assortment 2
Cardstock/Papers: Whisper White, Basic Black, Watercolor Paper, Brights Designer Series Paper
Stamps: Above the Clouds
Tools: High Seas Embossing Folder, Heat Tool
Accessories: Whisper White Baker's Twine, Iridescent Sequins Assortment, Whisper White Embossing Powder

Aren't they so much fun?!  The Watercolor Pencils were SOOOO much fun to use.  Just scribble some color on there and then blend!  I used an Aqua Painter for this card, but you could also use the Blender Pens. 


I really love the white embossed outline also. 


Also love the fun new Designer Series Paper stacks that come in color families.  The patterns are so cute and fun!  And can we talk about sequins...everything needs a splattering of sequins, right?!  😁


One last look at the whole card:

Best Wishes With Perennial Essence...

Have a quick project to share with you using the Perennial Essence Suite (item #152166).  Did you know you could just buy the whole suite together with just one item number?!  That was added to this NEW Catalog.  Yay!  This Suite has GORGEOUS Designer Series Paper that really just shines all on it's own!  I used one of the patterns for this fun gift box:


Colors: Petal Pink, Gray Granite, Whisper White
Ink Pads: Memento Black Ink, Petal Pink
Cardstock/Papers Whisper White, Petal Pink, Gray Grainte, Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper
Stamps: Floral Essence
Tools: Nested Stitched Labels Dies
Accessories: Acetate Card Box, Petal Pink 5/8" Organdy Striped Ribbon, Whisper White Baker's Twine, Mint Macaron 1/4" Textile Ribbon, Gold Faceted Gems

This was so easy to make, it is just one of the Acetate Card Boxes that has some fun elements on the front.  Again...the Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper really shines on this project.  HOW GORGEOUS is that pattern?!  A work of art!  Then just added a few stamped flowers, a greeting, and some fun fibers...and you are done!  I LOVE LOVE LOVE the Nested Stitched Labels Dies...and use them ALL the time.



I really like this floral stamp as well...I think it is a fun one to stamp tone on tone (Petal Pink ink onto Petal Pink cardstock) and makes them look so pretty!


I hope you enjoy this gift box!  Thanks so much for visiting!  Please let me know if you have any questions!

Sailing Away Artisan Design Team Blog Hop...

It is that time again!  It is time to HOP ALONG with Stampin' Up!'s Artisan Design Team!  If you are continuing on in your hop, you just came from ANGELA'S BLOG!  Didn't you just love what she did?!  If you are just starting the hop...WELCOME!  Happy to have you!  We are hopping along sharing all sorts of fun ideas made with the Come Sail Away Suite products!

Here are the projects I made for you today using the Sailing Home Stamp Set (Item # 149457) and Smooth Sailing Dies (Item # 149576):


I love these products so much!  They are so much fun!  That anchor die is 😍😍😍!  So that was the star of the show for one of my cards:


Colors: Gray Granite, Whisper White, Basic Black
Ink Pads: VersaMark
Cardstock/Papers Gray Granite, Whisper White, Basic Black
Stamps: Sailing Home
Tools: Smooth Sailing Die, Heat Tool
Accessories: Whisper White Baker's Twine, Sail Away Trinkets, Whisper White Embossing Powder

I did a few different things with this anchor.  First...I made a background by just cutting a bunch of the anchors from Gray Granite cardstock.  Then adhered those (using the Multi-Purpose Adhesive-the "green lid" glue!) to a Gray Granite piece of cardstock.  I love this technique...it even almost makes it look like an embossed background! 


Here is the next thing that I did with the anchor:


May be hard to tell here...but I adhered about 5 of the anchors together.  Then I topped them with a layer of the Fine-Tip Glue.  It makes it look like a glossy enamel element.  LOVE IT!


I love this next card and how the Pool Party card base makes everything pop:


Colors: Pool Party, Night of Navy, Whisper White, Gold
Ink Pads: VersaMark, Black, Pool Party
Cardstock/Papers Pool Party, Whisper White, Vellum, Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper
Stamps: Sailing Home
Tools: Smooth Sailing Dies, Stitched Nested Labels Dies, Stitched Shapes Dies
Accessories: Whisper White Baker's Twine, Basic Adhesive-Backed Sequins, Gold Embossing Powder


I also love how it opens.  I cut off an inch from the card front and adhered the Designer Paper to the inside of the card...



I love the fun little details this gives it!  Also...I am pretty in love with this gold embossed sail boat:


I think the Nested Label Dies are for sure going to be one of my most used die sets.  I LOVE THEM!!!


Thank you so much for visiting my blog!  Next stop is AurΓ©lie's Blog!!!! You will love what she has to share with you!!!

Healing Rococo Rose...

One of my favorite things about getting a new catalog is seeing the In Colors.  I LOVE color...so of course I love this part.  πŸ˜€  Today I am showcasing one of the new In Colors...Rococo Rose.  Kind of a fun one to say.  Haha.  I am using a stamp set that carried over from the last catalog, Healing Hugs!  ((Item # 148223) It is such a good one!!!! 



Colors: Rococo Rose, Old Olive, Whisper White
Ink Pads: Rococo Rose, Old Olive, VersaMark
Cardstock/Papers Thick Whisper White, Whisper White, Basic Black
Stamps: Healing Hugs
Tools: Stitched Shapes Dies, Subtle Embossing Folder, Heat Tool
Accessories: Woven Thread Sequin Assortment, Whisper White Embossing Powder, Linen Thread, Rococo Rose 1/2" Scalloped Linen Ribbon

I love this rose stamp.  It's a DisINKtive Stamp...so you get so much detail with just one image!


I also love that cute little scalloped ribbon!


It comes in all the new In Colors, and I just adhered it so a little peek of one of the scallop sides is coming out.  I have a feeling I will be using a lot of this ribbon.  😁

Also...don't miss the Woven Thread Sequin Assortment in the catalog!  Yes!  LOVE! this mix of sequins!!  😍😍😍


One last view of the card:


What do you think?!  Don't you think a handmade card would make you feel so much better when you were sick?!
