Silver, Gold and Copper... super trendy!

Have you spotted all of the metallic products available in the current Stampin' Up! catalog!?  So many gold, silver and copper papers, accessories and fun products!

As a Stampin' UP! demonstrator, our titles are Bronze, Bronze Elite, Silver, Silver Elite, Gold, Gold, Gold Elite, Platinum or Platinum Elite depending on our sales and the demonstrators we have in our downline.   When someone in my Luv 2 Stamp Group promotes to a new title, I now have a program to send them some gold, silver or copper accessories and a congrats card!

I hope you purchased the Thoughtful Branches Bundle!

 

I'm hoping you've purchased the Thoughtful Branches Bundle... Because.. I know you love using it for all 4 seasons!  It's a limited time offer stamp set and matching big shot framelit die set only available in August!!!  I LOVE the versatility of this set..  you can see some of the projects I've created with it at the bottom of this post.  Buy it here in my online store.  

Today I am featuring 3 different watercolor wash background cards using the Thoughtful Branches stamp set and dies in different ways.

Each of these cards is created with a 3-3/4" x 5" piece of watercolor paper, layered onto Island Indigo or Whisper White cardstock, and onto a Marina Mist or Island Indigo folded card. 

I kept the color scheme very simple, and almost monochromatic for these winter or Christmas cards. 

The card below has the tree die cut layered on top of the watercolor wash, and the greeting is from the Thoughtful Branches stamp set.  Be sure to stamp the greeting after the watercolor wash background has dried.

To create the watercolor wash background, use a 1" wide flat watercolor brush or Aqua Painter and dip into Marina Mist (or any blue) ink, but be sure to use a generous amount of water.  Wash back and forth onto your watercolor paper a few times.  THEN STOP.  I know you will want to "fuss" with it, but don't.  Just let it dry.. it will be beautiful :)

To create the white trees, stamp the trees in Versamark ink onto the watercolor paper and heat emboss them with clear embossing powder BEFORE doing the watercolor wash.  The wash will go right over the embossed images.

To create the beautiful copper stamped greeting, stamp the image from the Embellished Ornaments set in versamark ink and heat emboss with Copper embossing powder, then cut out with the Layering Ovals framelits.

My new 12x12 Paper Storage

 

I recently made some updates to my Stampin' Up! 12x12 Designer Series Paper storage in my stamp loft.  I learned about these great Storage Studio plastic sleeves from my friend Cindee, and several of you commented on them in my Holiday Catalog Sneak Peek video (see it here).

As promised, here is the info and update on how well these "Storage Studio" Paper Files work in my Stamp-n-Storage Paper Holders!  I replaced the old 12x12 holders I had with the Stamp-n-Storage paper holders to match my 8-1/2 x 11 holders, and I'm so happy with my paper wall of happiness!

Halloween Sneak Peek - Holiday Catalog 2016

 

When I opened my Bold Botanicals August Paper Pumpkin kit, the first thing I thought of was a spooky sky!!  Did you think of that, too?

So I created some Halloween cards using the backgrounds and folded cards from the Paper Pumpkin kit, and my brand new Spooky Fun stamp set, and Halloween Scenes Edgelit dies!!  This stamp set and edgelit die combo is actually a money-saving bundle on page 52 of the new 2016 Stampin' Up! Holiday catalog!

Seriously.. don't you just see that spooky sky??  I love it!  I also used the circle from the Paper Pumpkin kit, and die cut the scalloped border with the Layering Circles framelits from a piece in the August kit.
