Happy 4th!

 

I remembered these photos I took at the USS Missouri battleship in Pearl Harbor in May on the Stampin' Up! Hawaii Incentive Trip, so I just thought I'd share them with you today… they seem so appropriate!!

Bohemian Bag in a Box by Wendy

 

Do you remember the recent Stampin' UP! Incentive Trip to Hawaii that my family and I went on in May?  Well, when we were there, my sweet little friend Macie could not wait to see us and give me a sweet gift!! She had picked out a darling little Post-It Note packet for me to keep in my purse, and her mom, Wendy, made this fabulous "Bag in a Box" for Macie to put the gift in!

The Bohemian paper is so pretty.. the colors are rich and wonderful, and the patterns are amazing!!  I'll be posting some cards I made using this paper soon!

See the pretty Bohemian paper on pg 142 in the new 2015-2016 Stampin' Up! catalog, or here in my online store.

You can see Wendy's blog post and instructions for the Bag in a Box here!

TAG DETAILS & TIPS:

The tag is die cut out of Blackberry Bliss cardstock using the Chalk Talk framelit set, and embellished with a Delightful Dijon tag stamped with the Bohemian Borders set (pg 96 of the new Stampin' Up! catalog).  She stamped "it's for you" using the Amazing Birthday stamp set… you can see and purchase all of the products for this project in my online store by clicking on any of the product photo links below. Did you see how Wendy died the Jute ribbon with the Delightful Dijon Classic Stampin' Ink Refill?  Too fun! custom colored ribbon! You can do that either by spritzing it with a Stampin' Spritzer that has rubbing alcohol and reinker in it, or, you can dye it in a cup with water and reinker!

Thank you Macie, for the sweet gift and for all your hugs and the time we got to spend together in Hawaii!! Thank you Wendy for the great bag!

When I was on the Stampin' UP! Incentive trip to Hawaii in May, I won a package of the amazingly beautiful English Garden Designer paper!!  You'll find it on pg 142 of the NEW 2015-2016 Stampin' Up! catalog (or HERE in my online store)!  You can just call it the "Patty Bennett Paper" if you want to :)   Like the recent Painted Blooms paper, this is just right up my alley with all the gorgeous floral designs!!

While on the trip, I also saw a demonstrator named Marelle Taylor demonstrate a unique way to make beautiful cards with this pack of paper!  She did something similar to my samples below, but she ripped the paper instead of cutting… you can try either method!

Aren't these patterns beautiful in this pretty paper!?

I embellished each card with a simple tag, stamped with the flower from the new You've Got This stamp set, pg 113 in the new catalog.  See product table below for easy ordering for all of these products.

Youve-got-this-bookmark-tags-scalloped-tag-topper

These tags are fun and easy.. cut your Whisper White cardstock into 2" wide strips (I cut mine to 4-1/4" high) and then stamp with the flower from You've Got This and add the "Good Things" sentiment from the same set!

Stampin' Up! Cardstock and Ink Colors I used:

Marina Mist, Delightful Dijon, Rose Red and Mossy Meadow

NEW Catalog Market Fresh Samples!

On our recent Stampin' UP! Incentive Trip to Hawaii, we were treated to several displays and demonstrations featuring new Stampin' UP! products!  One of the fabulous demonstrations was presented by Judy Prahl!  She showed us a fun watercoloring technique using Stampin' Write Markers scribbled onto a tile and then used a Blender Pen or AquaPainter to pick up color and color in the stamped Market Fresh images!! 

  Market-fresh-farmers-market-stampin-up-hawaii-trip-samples-cards

You'll find the Market Fresh stamp set on pg 116 of the NEW 2015-2016 Stampin' UP! Catalog and the Farmer's Market coordinating paper on pg 143!  Remember you can order these NEW items beginning on June 2, 2015.

Below is a terrific comparison that Judy did by stamping and coloring in this set on Stampin' UP! Watercolor paper, Very Vanilla Cardstock and Whisper White cardstock.  Shimmery White cardstock is also a great alternative for watercoloring techniques.  You'll want to use the StazOn black pad when watercoloring.

It might be a little hard to tell in the photo but the results on the Watercolor Paper were much more vibrant and really beautiful!
