This Little Piggy


Doesn't this card make you smile?  I designed this card a while back for one of my Breakfast Club Classes.  It was such a big hit with my friends that I couldn't let another chance go by to share it with my readers.  


Tips & Tricks

  • I stamped the image with Black Archival Ink on a piece of Whisper White card stock that I had cropped with the Triple Banner Punch.
  • I stamped a second image on a piece of Shimmer White card stock.  I watercolored this image with Powder Pink ink using my favorite Aqua Painters.
  • The little piggy is fussy cut and popped up with dimensionals.



Here are the products I used to create this card.  Click on the products below to order them from Stampin' Up anytime!!

Oh Joy, It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas!!


I love the look of Soft Sky and Silver for Christmas!  Don't you?  Oh Joy is a sentiment out of the Watercolor Christmas Stamp Set that is designed to coordinate with our Watercolor Christmas Project Kit.  (Stampin Up kits are perfect for those crafters that want quick and pretty results.)  



The sentiment is the only stamped image on this card.  All the other elements were cropped out with the Seasonal Layers Thinlits Dies.  

Tips & Tricks

  • First I embossed the Whisper White card stock with Winter Wonder Embossing Folder and added Dazzling Diamonds to the snowflake.
  • I cropped out all three snowflakes using the Seasonal Layers Thinlits Dies.
  • I heat embossed the sentiment with Silver Embossing Powder and cropped it out with the Stitched Framelits Dies.
  • The scalloped oval is from Stampin' Up's Layering Oval Die Collection.  (A must have in my opinion.)
  • Of course, a card is not finished until the inside is done.





The Watercolor Christmas Project Kit includes all the supplies to make 20 beautiful cards.

Happiest of Days



I love the look of watercoloring.  I think I like it because you really cannot mess it up.  It makes you feel like you are a true artist.  Stampin Up makes it really easy for us with the Aqua Painters.  If you haven't used them before, you really need to try them.  They are so easy to use.  All you do is fill the barrel with tap water.  Squeeze the barrel sightly to release some of the water and "paint" over the surface that you want to watercolor.  Then, simply add color by either using reinkers or the inside top of the stamp pads.  Here is a tutorial on watercoloring.

Count My Blessings Birthday




This is one of those stamp sets I didn't think I needed.  Now, I can't get enough of it.  Has that ever happened to you?  I love how this card turned out.  


Tips and Tricks

  • 1st layer is 5-1/4 X 4 (Pumpkin Pie CS)
  • 2nd layer is 5 X 3-3/4 (Very Vanilla CS, embossed with pinewood planks embossing folder)
  • 3rd layer is 1-1/2 X 5 (Spooky Night DSP)

Seasonal Chums Meets Stampin' Blends




How about another Halloween card?  This time around, I got to play with my new Stampin' Blends and love, love, love them.  They are so easy to use and will be available for sale on October 16, 2017.    

Here are some tips on creating this card:
  • I stamped the image on Very Vanilla CS with Memento Ink.  (this is ink that is recommended with Stampin' Blends.
  • I cropped them out with the Seasonal Tags Framelits Dies, and trimmed off the back section of the pumpkin.
  • I used the Stampin' Blend Light Pumpkin Pie Marker and colored the entire pumpkin.
  • I highlighted with the Dark Pumpkin Pie Marker and blended the two together with the Light Marker.
  • The inside of the eyes, nose and mouth are colored in with the Light Daffodil Delight Stampin' Blend Marker.
  • I followed the same pattern with the Stampin' Blend Old Olive Markers.
  • I cropped out the "B" in both Basic Black CS and Pumpkin Pie CS with the Large Letters Framelits Dies.

Here is a closer look:
