Flowing Flowers #157880

20220214_105812

Let's "Rock & Roll!" This is a simple, fun technique: I inked this flower image with Bumblebee ink, then ROLLED the edges of the image in Polished Pink ink! Like magic, the result is a two-color flower!! This lovely, sketchy flower is from Flowing Flowers Stamp Set #157880 in the Spring Mini Catalog.

 

20220214_105832

This is a fast way to add color to an image that is rather round in shape.

The base card is Basic Grey, a neutral that is under used. Try "Rock & Roll!"

Honeybee Home Bundle #stampinup

20220329_105931

This is a VERY SPECIAL card I recently received from a long time friend, Jodie! Stampin' Up! brought us together and has kept us together.  Gosh, I think it has been close to 25 years ago when Jodie was a Stampin' Up! hostess for me, then a team member, then an online club member. WOW! Time flies!

 

20220329_105904

This is a sweet and springy card that Jodie created using Honeybee Home Bundle #157952 paired with the Hive 3D Embossing Folder #157955. I love the Wink of Stella #141897 shimmer on the honeybees!

I sincerely hope paper crafting has brought you strong and lasting friendships!!


Easter Friends #stampinup

20220320_163041

WHY is this a "cheater shaker card?" It uses a 6 X 8" Cellophane Bag #102210 to contain the shaker elements instead of the traditional window sheet! It's easy! It's thinner to mail! Simply tape the cello bag around the card stock & shaker elements. I used Shaker Shapes #155569 because they are flat.

 

20220320_163055

These adorable critters are from Easter Friends Stamp Set #157737 and make cute baby cards, too!  Try this easy Shaker Card method!

Butterflies and Flowers Layering Decorative Masks

20220111_141225

This stenciling technique is amazing! The Butterflies & Flowers Layering Decorative Masks #158142 helps you build layers of colors! These flowers were all created using only a Misty Moonlight ink pad and Blending Brushes #153611. Simply use more or less ink!

 

20220111_141235

Tape down your card stock and mask, using a low tack tape, like blue painter's tape.
