Nature's Perfection


Michelle Miller, my demonstrator friend from Illinois is my guest stamper today. She used two free Sale-A-Bration items on her lovely card: Nature's Perfection Stamp Set and Irresistibly Yours Specialty Designer Series Paper.


This is a sweet creation with lots of texture! Sale-A-Bration ENDS tomorrow, March 31, 2015 at 11:50 pm Mountain Time. Last chance to order !

Sale-A-Bration nears end


Sale-A-Bration 2015 ends in four days! This is a cheery design by Judy Trigg, a demonstrator friend from Illinois. She used Stampin' Write Markers to color on the backside of the SHEER PERFECTION Designer Vellum Stack (which is a FREE S-A-B item with purchase.) The butterflies are nicely framed by the BANNERS Framelits #132173. Such a happy SPRING card created by Judy!!

Irresistibly Yours MAGIC!


You need to try this REALLY cool technique, Tone-on-Tone-on-Tone!! The supplies you need are: Irresistibly Yours Designer Series Paper (a FREE Sale-A-Bration item till 3/31/2015,) Dots & Stripes Decorative Masks (really a stencil,) ink pad, stamping sponge, and a tissue. I'm using Sahara Sand and a 3X3" piece of the DSP.


Pounce the sponge onto the ink pad to collect color. With stencil on top of the DSP, SCRUB the sponge over the stencil to create dark areas as shown.


Remove the stencil. LIGHTLY sponge the entire area with circular motions. I only did half so you could see the difference it makes! The white embossed image POPS OUT like MAGIC!! Buff with a tissue to remove ink on the white embossed area.


And here is the finished piece - three layers of color! So interesting! Now for the card...


Look at the stunning results!! The white embossed area is glossy and really stands out. I just LOVE this quick technique! The Irresistibly Yours Designer Series Paper contains 2 each of SIX different designs for a total of 12 sheets of 12X12" papers. This project only took a 3X3" piece!

A Happy Thing


This plump little bird makes me happy! I was fiddling with the 1-1/4" Burlap Ribbon which I love to use for TEXTURE! I pulled a few threads and wove a ribbon through the opening!! Glue dots secure the ends. I used Crystal Effects on the Bird's eye and beak, but the picture doesn't show it.


The little bird is colored with Blendabilities which can be your FREE selection during Sale-A-Bration Promo through March 31, 2015. You must try them!!
