Hey There Buds

Good morning.  We got some much needed rain last night. Enough to water my flowers so I whipped up this quick card instead of watering. 001

The base card is the new in color Lost Lagoon. The ribbon is the coordinating satin ribbon. I layered Melon Mambo CS over the Subtles DSP.  The image was colored with write and stamp markers onto the stamp, huffed and applied to Whisper White CS.  I used the Project Life corner rounder to round two corners.  It really was fast and easy.

Thanks for looking. I'll be back tomorrow.

Convention Make and Take

This is one of the make and takes we did at the convention.  It uses the gift card enclosures and the Amazing Birthday stamp set.  The star is die cut from gold glimmer paper using the new Stars dies. There are five different size stars in the set and it coordinates with the Be the Star Stamp set. 001

If you live in the Green Bay, WI area:

During the month of August I will be holding three classes.  August 9 from 9:30 am-12:30pm CST a birthday greeting class.  Why not bring a friend and have fun creating those birthday cards you know you're going to need.   On both Aug. 16 from 9:30 am-12:30 pm CST and Aug. 20 from 5:30-9:00pm CST there will be a class using Blendabilities.  You will have the opportunity to practice and walk away with two completed cards.  It's your chance to try out the new alcohol markers from Stampin' Up!

RSVP is required three days prior to the event.  Space is limited so you don't want to miss out. E-mail me to reserve your spot.

Thanks for looking.

Soft and Serene

Good morning everyone,

I have another card we created at our classes this week.  The cardstock base is Soft Sky.  The Sweetbriar Rose stamp which is only available as a single woodblock stamp was embossed with white embossing powder.  I used sponge daubers which are reusable,( just wash in soapy water), to lightly color in the flowers and leaves with Crisp Cantaloupe and Pistacchio Pudding.  The greeting and the strip are from the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set and the And Many More set. They were stamped with Tangelo Twist.  The washi tape accent is from the new Sweet Sadie grouping. 002

Thanks for looking.  Have a great Monday.

Belly Band

Not the name of a new rock group.  Belly bands are placed around cards or boxes as a closure. Check it out on this card. 001

The background is stamped on Very Vanilla CS with a stamp from the Hostess set, Bloom with Hope.  You can have this set with a workshop total of $150 or greater.  Let me kjnow if you're interested.  The large flower is from the Beautiful Bunch stamp set and punched with the Fun Flower punch.  It was popped onto the belly band created with the Scalloped Tag Topper and tied together with the new Hello Honey satin ribbon.  The greeting is from the same Hostess set, Bloom with Hope embossed with Pool Party embossing powder.

Thanks for looking.

Corner Garden Watercolor

I have class to 001

night and this is one of the projects we will be creating.  I stamped the Corner Garden background stamp on watercolor paper using Memento Black ink.  I colored some of the images with write and stamp markers from the regals and subtles collections.  I mounted the watercolor paper onto a thin artist canvas with Tombow Glue and then added the brads as accents.  This would make a great gift framed or with an easel. 

Have a great Wednesday and thanks for looking,  MB
