Circle Flap Card – You’ve Got This

A couple of weeks ago one of my downline shared a card sketch with me. (Thanks Jan!) It had a circle on one side and the circle was part of the closure. I love any type of fancy fold or different close on a card. I finally had time to try to make my own….And I got to use my new Blends!

Here is a Pool Party version of the card:

Here is a Calypso Coral version of the card:

Pool Party is my favorite!

Inside of the card:

 I really enjoyed trying this design two different color schemes. I think using a square would work just as well. What do you think? More ideas to try!

Have you ordered your Blends yet? What are you waiting for?? They are lots of fun and make your coloring look very professional.

Thanks for stopping by today. Happy Stamping!

When Pigs Fly

 This is without a doubt the cutest stamp set in the Annual Catalog. I have made several cards using some of the images, but this is my first flying pig. Isn’t she darling??? She is colored with the new Blends markers. These markers blend and shade like a dream.

 

This is also the first time I tried the embossing paste. It was super easy to use.  I will have to use it more often. I like the texture it adds to the card. While the embossing paste was still wet I sprinkled Dazzling Diamonds on the clouds. I thought it was like a silver lining. The wings also have Dazzling Diamonds sprinkled on them.

 

I wanted pink ribbon and didn’t have any so I dyed the Whisper White ribbon with my Melon Mambo re-inker. I love that you can change ribbon colors so easily.

I have no idea who will get this card….I don’t want to waste the cuteness on just anybody!!

Thanks for stopping by today. Happy Stamping!

Color Me Happy – Blends

Stampin’ Up demonstrators have had the joy of using the new Blends markers for the last month. I’m sure you have seen many examples on Pinterest. The Blends are so easy to use; you will be amazed at your new found coloring skills. The Blends give a smooth uniform color on your very first try. Start with one shade of color and add layers of color as desired. When you use one color it is beautiful, add the second layer and you add depth, dimension, and texture.   

Markers are sold as single markers or as a combo pack for each color.  If you don’t want to enter all of those product codes, you can enter one (147475) to get all of them at once:

 

Here is a chart of all the colors.

I used the words from Artistically Asian and gold embossed them for a little bling. The tassel is Mini Tassels Assortment. 

I loved the way this friendship card turned out. I need to try it in other color combos.
