Treat Yourself

Here is a quick watercolor card that I sent to a friend and team member.  I used Stampin' Up! watercolor paper and the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set.  I used the little pods and stacked them.  They're stamped in Versamark and embossed with White Stampin' Emboss Powder.  Then I used an Aqua Painter to wet my paper and then painted with my ink pads.  I used Watermelon Wonder (a retired color), Peekaboo Peach and Daffodil Delight.  The sentiment is from Falling For You which is retired.  I added some In Color Enamel Dots.

Stampin' Up! Bonus Days are almost over!  Don't miss out.  For any $50 order you place, you will receive a $5 coupon which can be used in August.  This is over July 31st though, so don't wait!  Click on the graphic to shop.  If you are a Paper Pumpkin subscriber or you want to become one, you can buy a 3, 6 or 12-month subscription and get some bonus coupons!!

Celebrate Dots!

I recently received these cute embossing folders from my incredibly generous upline.  I sat down to try them out.  Four cards later, I finally decided to quit for the night.  I made masculine and feminine versions. I ended up loving the color combinations, especially on the masculine one.  I will use it in the future!  There are a ton of ideas I have for the folders and I will be playing with them again.

I have a couple of tips with the folders.  Keep your paper in the folder while stamping the dots (or whatever shapes you want to use).  It will give you a little stability with the debossed letters.  And press down lightly so that the colors don't get inside the letters.  Oh, and if you get a little bit of ink in the letters, just take a white gel pen and write over it!  It's that easy.

These two little folders can easily make a WOW card and there are so many options. They are only $9 US.  Stampin' Up! has a few card samples in the store.  Go and check them out here:  Celebrations Duo Textured Embossing Folders

Here are my samples.  Please let me know your favorite!  I used the Fiesta Textured Embossing folder in the first.  Colors are Bermuda Bay, Calypso Coral and Crushed Curry.  I added Metallic Enamel Shapes as well. 

In the second one, I used Dapper Denim, Tranquil Tide and Lemon Lime Twist.  Again, I added some Enamel Shapes.

In the third, I used the Scallop Tag Topper Punch and some Fresh Florals dsp.  I used Flirty Flamingo as a base with a panel of Peekaboo Peach.  Then I tied on some Flirty Flamingo ribbon and Lemon Lime Twist Ombre ribbon.

Don't forget....for every $50 you spend in July, you will receive a $5 coupon to use in August.  That's a great deal!  There are no limits to how many you can receive.  Check it out here:
