I’ve been talking up the Broadway Bound Suite because of the June Paper Pumpkin.  When I shared information about it, I had not even had a chance to play.  Well, now I have!  It’s awesome!  I love the color combination and the stamp set and framelits!

I designed these 2 cards for club this past week.
Check them out! 

The base is Lovely Lipstick, Basic Black, Lemon Lime Twist and Shimmer White Cardstock.
Use an aquapainter and add some color: Lovely Lipstick and Lemon Lime Twist re-inkers.  Let it dry
Cut out a frame from Basic Black cardstock and attach using mini glue dots.
Stamp “Hooray” in Memento Black ink.
Stamp the hat in Lovely Lipstick ink and cut out, attach to the front using mini dimensionals.
Stamp the sentiment ink Lovely Lipstick, punch out and attach using mini dimensionals.
Finish it off with the new metallic pearls!

This one is the exact same design, but I swapped the Lovely Lipstick and Lemon Lime Twist.
I also changed the frame and used the coordinating designer series paper instead of plain black.

Detailed in Purples

As you saw yesterday, the Delightfully Detailed Suite includes the stamp set and trio punch.  This punch is AWESOME!  We have had the trio style punch before but this one is so great.  The punch itself punches so smooth and it’s great with or without the coordinating stamp set.  

Start with a Thick White Base
Add a layer of Highland Heather & watercolor paper

On the Watercolor Paper:
Punch the design in each corner
Stamp the design in each corner using Blackberry Bliss ink
Use an aqua painter and Highland Heather ink to create the water colored rectangle in the center of your card.
Stamp the sentiment in Blackberry Bliss ink and punch out using the Pretty Label Punch
Attach the sentiment and pearl doilie using dimensionals

I keep talking about Blends but do you really know what they are and how to use them?  I am in love.  They color so smooth!  No lines.  And if you are really artistic, they are great to add shading and depth.  

Check out Stampin' Up's video on the Basics of Blending.

Hello Rhino

Time for something different :) This stamp set did not grow on me quickly.  In fact, it made me say "yuck".  Now that I have had time to play with it, I think it's pretty cute.  It had potential. 

This is card I came up with for a recent club event.

I used Basic Gray, Granny Apple Green, Pacific Point and Whisper White.

Abstract Negative!

This turned out so fun!  When I was making yesterday's card... wait, you didn't see it?!  Well, go back and check it out!  I was able to create a fun negative image when I made my card yesterday.  
I kept the exact same layout once again.

I cut supplies for 2 cards.  After I used my Big Shot to cut out my flowers for one card, I put the cut out image over a new card front layer.  Then I got to it and sponged my flowers for the other card.  When I lifted the flowers off my second card layer, I was left with this beautiful negative.  It did exactly what I hoped it would!
