SU Sneak Peek – Love What You Do and Varied Vases

Hi again!


I finished this card a couple hours ago for a flower card swap and used the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches. I used the new Love What You Do and Varied Vases stamp sets again.


I am getting it linked just in time before the challenge ends. I ended up going for a walk with my Mom for a bit. It is such a beautiful day out. We have been waiting for months for this kind of weather!



I was going to leave the background plain but too much white space drives me crazy lol! So I used a stamp from the Love What You Do set to make a tone on tone polka dot background. The paper has some pearlized flowers and the doily is pearlized as well. I forgot to try and capture how pretty it is when I took photos earlier.


The flowers were watercolored with Rich Razzleberry and Blackberry Bliss inks using a blender pen. The sentiment and leaves from Varied Vases were stamped on Crumb Cake cardstock and cut out with the classic label punch and popped up with dimensionals.


Here is the sketch~

SU Sneak Peek – Varied Vases

I am back with another card using the new Varied Vases stamp set from Stampin’ Up!


I love stamping with this set. It was so easy to line up the images on my Tim Holtz stamp platform.


For this card I chose to work with the color challenge at Color Throwdown of red, green and white. The flowers look a little more pink though as they were watercolored with the SU Real Red watercolor pencil. They blend beautifully but appear lighter than the regular color does. This was my first time using them.



One more flower card done for a flower swap. I may have signed up for too many lol, couldn’t wait to make springy cards after the very long winter we had!

SU Sneak Peek – Love What You Do

Hi again!


I made this card today for a flower card swap using a new set from Stampin’ Up! called Love What You Do. I used a sketch from Global Design Project. I really like this sketch to showcase the designer series paper. It’s so pretty!



I colored the flowers with my Stampin Blends and cut them out using the Layering Oval Framelits.  The card base is one of the returning colors, Blackberry Bliss. Love this color!


Here is the sketch (I rotated it for my card) ~

SU Sneak Peek – Varied Vases and Love What You Do



Finally back to crafting again. I moved a bunch of craft supplies to our dining room to be closer to my little family for a bit.


Earlier this month I was able to attend Stampin’ Up!’s OnStage Local that was held in our state’s capital. It was SO much fun. I rejoined a bit ago and this time around I am doing it for myself, not a business as I didn’t enjoy it when I tried several years ago. Crafting is my hobby, not a job for me.


Here is a photo of me at the event~


As a perk of attending the event, we were able to order select products from the upcoming annual catalog. I received my order last week and finally opened it yesterday.


I whipped up this clean and simple card using two new stamp sets and a new set of designer series paper.



One of the most exciting things about attending OnStage was hearing about the color revamp. I was hoping for one since I love new colors and having old ones return. I have always kept all my retiring stuff so I have almost all of the returning colors. I used Blackberry Bliss for the sentiment and Mossy Meadow as the background for the floral panel.


Thanks for stopping by!
