Happy Happy Happy Fall!

While fall is not quite in the air yet around here, it is arriving in my heart as I start to decorate the house and create fall stamping projects.  I am loving the new 2″x 8″ cellophane bags that Stampin’ Up! is carrying this year.  I’ve challenged my demonstrator friends to discover what kinds of treats will fit inside these delightfully cute bags!

For a party this week I created this fall themed treat that makes my heart sing! The project was 100% inspired by the fun Snickers minis!

Hydrangea Love

This card was inspired by some amazing hydrangea bushes we saw when we were in Oregon this summer.  The deep and rich purple color of the flowers were breathtaking!  I tried to recreate the gorgeous blooms using Stampin’ Up! colors.  How do you think I did?

Watercoloring Rose Wonder

FullSizeRenderMy stamping therapy today included 10 minutes of watercoloring this rose image from the Rose Wonder stamp set, and I am thrilled with the final card!  This stamp set has become the first set I turn to when I need simple, elegant cards.  What the camera could not capture is the sweet shimmer over everything I colored using reinker colors and the Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Brush.  The technique is to dip the brush into the reinker color and use like a paint brush (or Aqua Painter).  The Clear Glitter mixes with the reinker color as you watercolor the image, then you wipe the brush tip clean in between colors. Simple, beautiful, and therapeutic!

Stampin’ Supplies: Blushing Bride, Pear Pizzazz, Calypso Coral and Basic Gray ink, Blushing Bride Basic Gray and Whisper White cardstock, Rose Garden framelits, Rose Wonder stamp set, Wink of Stella Glitter Brush Clear pen and Organza ribbon.

Many, Many Furry Thanks!

IMG_5335 FullSizeRender (1)With all of the recent celebrations in my family, I am cranking out the thank you cards today and having a lot of fun trying out my new In Colors!  So far, Dapper Denim is my favorite color, and today I paired it with Marina Mist, Crumb Cake and Early Espresso to create a great masculine color combination.  What do you think?  My furry stamper must have liked the masculine vibe I had going too….he was oh so much “help”!!!!!!
