I die cut 2 layers with the Delicate Doiles, then stamped the big flower image from Betsy's Blossoms in Primrose Petals and punched it with 2 punches for all these fun layers. See below for all supplies.

2012 new Catalog Product Shares

On Tuesday I shared a cute idea with you for using the NATURAL COMPOSITION SPECIALTY DSP (PG 162) from Stampin' Up! and the adorable LITTLE LABELS PUNCH PACK.  Today I have another tip to share with you for using this GORGEOUS paper!

WATERCOLOR ON IT!!

Natural composition watercolor paper
The gorgeous new Natural Composition Specialty DSP has glossy raised patterns on it.. almost like it was embossed in versamark and clear embossing powder!!  So I decided to try watercoloring because the glossy raised portions will resist the ink.. anyway.. it turned out really neat!!!

I used my Aquapainter (pg 178) and the ink in the lids of my classic ink pads to do the watercoloring.

After I cut it into pieces, i added it to a couple cards featuring the new POSTAGE DUE stamp set (pg 108) (one of my very favorite items in the new catalog!)

Postage due natural composition 2

I stamped the Postage Due image onto WATERCOLOR PAPER with Soft Suede (above) and Raspberry Ripple (below)... just for a neat texture.

Postage due natural composition 1

Summer Smooches from Stampin' Up!

Top 10 summer smooch 2Just ONE of the fabulously cool things about being a Stampin' Up! demonstrator is that we get to PRE ORDER new products .. such as this super cute Summer Smooches suite of products!! 

Yesterday, demonstrators were able to preorder adorable fabric, designer paper, a stamp set, and so much more!  The colors are bright and fun and the theme is flowery and adorable!!

Would you like to join my Luv 2 Stamp Group and the Stampin' Up! family as a demonstrator (for only $125)?  I'd love to chat with you about the benefits of joining us.  You can also read more info here. 

 


Top 10 summer smooch 3I wanted to send out CONGRATS cards to the top 10 demonstrators in my group for their sales achievements so I used the MY DIGITAL STUDIO Summer Smooches download we could preorder yesterday and then I embellished the inside of the card with the coordinating new stamp set (we were given that stamp set in San Antonio at the Managers Reception in January).

Top 10 summer smooch 1
1 leadership bagYou might remember the absolutely cutie patootie bag we got at Leadership showcasing this Summer Smooches fabric... soooooo stinkin' cute!

(for more projects made with this fun fabric, see this previous post.. scroll down below the card samples)
