Hello and Welcome!!
Tonight I'm participating in a Blog Hop with a bunch of amazing demonstrators from all over the world!! We are sharing some gorgeousness from our Stampin' Up! Mini and Sale-a-bration Catalogues, and I'm sure you'll love it all!!!
I have 2 projects to share with you! They are inspired by pages 46 and 23 of the Mini Catalogue.
I have simplified the card featuring Welcoming Woods a little - featuring a fun water colour wash on Shimmery White cardstock using our Water Painter with some Balmy Blue ink.
The inside of the card is very simple with some stamping in Smoky Slate and Balmy Blue.
I've changed my card to a Birthday Card - there are so many gorgeous greetings in this stamp set which makes it super useful for so many occasions!!
My second card is another simplification! I've added one of the gorgeous Wonderful Snowflakes as my centre feature.
This lovely greeting comes from Merriest Moments stamp set, and the designer series paper is the Simply Elegant paper from our Annual Catalogue. I've also added some Gold Foil inspired by this lovely paper.
Basic Gray is not a traditional colour for Christmas, but I think this card looks so elegant with the gold highlights!!
Here's a video showing how I've created both of these cards.

Also I have been wondering how to use those snowflakes and they go perfectly with this dsp!ReplyDelete
