Is Your Glass Half Empty or Half Full?

Announcements/ Classes / Events/ Product Information

Hey Stampers! Busy weekend for us, getting ready for our vacation to Spain. We were blessed to earn the Stampin' Up! Incentive Trip to the Mediterranean last year and we spent a few extra days in Barcelona. We decided right there and then, we would be going back this year. Spain is home to many fabulous vineyards so today's card “Is Your Glass Half Empty or Half Full?” seems totally appropriate, don't you agree?

Is Your Glass Half Empty or Half Full?

I am definitely a “purple queen” so Rich Razzleberry fit the bill for this card! Notice the shading on the wine bottles and inside the glasses. Our new Stampin' Blends markers make this so very easy. My preferred coloring style is to lay down the lighter color first, and then highlight with the darker shade. Each marker has both a light and dark shade. You can also mix and match colors for another effect.

Here's a short video that explains some of the features and benefits.

The next video shows you some of the basics of blending with the new markers.

 

I also have short Facebook LIVE video about a special gift I have for everyone who orders the full set of available Blends from me! I've already given several out and the ladies LOVE it! You can also order the new Stampin' Blends as part of a starter kit and get all of them for only $99 plus tax and shipping is FREE! Check out my Girls, INK team. Any questions about this, please give me a shout.

Fall Inspiration With Colorful Seasons

Die Cut/ Holidays / Special Days/ Product Information/ Samples

Hello stampers! What a great weekend I had! The weather here in Texas was nice and I got to spend yesterday afternoon working on a Homecoming Mum. Now, I'm from California and we did not have anything remotely like this. A “mum” was a real flower mum and went into a small corsage on your wrist or dress.  I can't post a picture yet because we are keeping it a surprise from my grandson's girlfriend. Let me just say it is BIG! When I asked another mom who has made plenty of these if it is too big she said oh no; go BIG or go home! So, there you go, a learning opportunity! But, I digress, let's get back to the main reason for my post today. I want to share some fall inspiration with Colorful Seasons.

https://www.stampinup.com/ECWeb/ItemList.aspx?categoryid=100070

This stamp set is another one of my personal favorites in the Holiday Seasonal Catalog; the images and greetings are charming and offer cardmaking versatility for every occasion year round.

Notice on the card just above, some of the little pieces were poked out with a paper piercing tool and some of the pieces remained in the leaf. This gives a fun, unique look.
