Detailed Watercolor Wonder

2017_07_02 I absolutely love the the simplicity of the Stampin Up Detailed Floral Thinlits DIe #141482 because the result is stunning when layered on top of a piece of Watercolor Wonder DSP (retired).  I added a piece of coordinating ribbon to cover the seam.  The sentiment is from the Teeny Tiny Wishes #128748 stamp set.

Happy Watercolor Wonder




Today’s multi-layered birthday card is simple and happy! I used the now retired Watercolor Wonder DSP from Stampin Up and punched a peek a boo hole using the 1 3/4 ” circle punch to reveal the Calypso Coral paper below. I cut the “happy” using the Hello You Thinlits Die#137363 from Stampin Up. The birthday sentiment is from the coordinating Crazy About You #137137 stamp set.  If you have been avoiding using the intricate thinlits like the Happy and other words from the Hello You set because they were too intricate to remove from the die; your life just got easier with the Stampin Up Precision Base Plate #139684 and the Big Shot Die Brush #140603. Both these tools  make working with detailed dies a dream.

Watercolor Lattice

2014_05_14Stepped up Watercolor-dsp 002 2014_05_14Stepped up Watercolor-dsp 006 Today’s card is another great set that Cammie created using the same basic layout and then switched up some of the elements to change the look.  For both cards she created a lattice border using the Chevron Border #132154 punch.  She punched the border first and then used the individual leftover chevrons to create the lattice look.  The main panel of each card is a piece of the fabulously yummy and soon to be gone Watercolor Wonder DSP #132994.  The flowers were hand cut from the Watercolor wonder sheet of floral DSP.  She then curled them and clustered them on the card front.  She completed the card by adding Basic Pearls for the flower centers and then lattice intersections on the daffodil yellow card.  The daffodil card also has colored pearls and Cammie used her Stampin Up reinkers to colorize them.  Teaser alert… Coloring pearls and rhinestones will get easier with the Blendability Markers available in the new 2014-2015 Stampin Up annual catalog. To complete the card Cammie added a sentiment from the Sassy Salutations #126707 stampset.

Kindness Matters


For today’s card, I kept it simple but wanted to make sure I used up a scrap piece of the watercolor wonder DSP.  This DSP is beautiful and will not be available after June1.  That is very sad but wait until you see all the new and fun DSP and everything else in the all new 2014-2015 Stampin Up catalog.

For this card I used a white card base and a white panel and I used the Blossom punch #125603 in the panel to create a peek-a-boo flower.  I then used the Occasions#129387  paper piercing template to outline the flower and then placed a scrap piece of Watercolor Wonder DSP #132994 behind the main panel so that the peek-a-boo hole is filled in with beautiful floral images from the DSP.  I then stamped on gumball green (retiring cardstock color) a flower from the Petite Petals #133155 and then punched it with the coordinating Petite Petals punch #133322 and added it to the flower center.  I finished the card by adding a basic pearl and a piece of retiring 3/8 “stitched gumball green satin ribbon #126848 and the Kindness Matters sentiment (retired stamp set)

Hey there chick

2014_04_18IMG_1188Of all my Easter cards I made this year, I think this is my favorite.  I think it is because I love punch art.  Technically this is framelit art coupled with punches but I love it just the same.  When I saw this piece of DSP from the Watercolor wonder DSP, I knew I wanted to do an Easter Egg with it.  The basic egg shape was cut from the Ovals collection framelits#129381 and then I hand cut the “cracked” egg.   The cute little chick (head and wing) is made from the Starburst framelits #132967 in the Stampin Up occasions catalog. The eyes are punched from the Owl Builder punch #118074 and then I used the fun googley eyes (on the Stampin Up Clearance rack),  The beak is a modified Mosaic punch #131267. I added a bow in her hair using the now retired 1/8 ” taffeta daffodil ribbon.  The Hey there sentiment is from Just Saying #133203 stampset and the coordinating Word Bubbles framelits #132968.  The Just Saying and the Word Bubbles are a bundle and save item (wood #134819 and clear #134820).  When purchasing them together you can save 15%.

Blessed Water Color Easter


Today’s card is the final Easter card I made using the Blessed Easter single stamp #133212 from the Stampin Up occasions catalog.  I paired it with the fabulous Watercolor Wonder DSP #132994.  I used the masking technique to stamp the flowers on the main panel and the words on the circle.  I used the Stampin Up blender pens and daffodil and crisp cantaloupe inks to color the tulips.  The sentiment was stamped in the gold ink and the Starburst framelit3132967 was cut using the yummy gold foil sheets #132622.

2014_04_16IMG_1133 As a recap, here are the 4 Easter cards I made using the Blessed Easter stamp.  1 Stamp 4 looks and I am not done yet.  I plan to use the stamp again for my upcoming Flower Power workshop.

Hello sunshine


It has been a long winter & spring break is here so that must mean we can expect more cold weather but if we think sunshine maybe it will come.  Today’s card is a fun one using the banner punch (free item) #133519 to create the sun rays.  The center of the sun was punched with a circle punch from the fabulous water color wonder DSP #132994 from the Stampin Up occasions catalog. The smoky slate background was textured using the Decorative Dots texturing folder (free item)#133520 and the clouds were cut using the Word Bubbles framelits #132968. I framed a whisper white cardstock strip with 2 pieces of Tangerine satin ribbon (retired item) and stamped the sentiment with the See Ya Later #133533 (free item) stampset to complete this al occasions card.
