Ginny Harrell - Independent Stampin' Up!® Demonstrator (678) 596-6802

Hello, Dear Friend

Today’s simple project uses Life is Grand (Occasions Catalog) paired with Painted Seasons Bundle (FREE with a $100.00 purchase). Painted Seasons is one stunning stamp set!

I took my color inspiration from a picture of beautiful succulents. Succulents come in so many different shades, shapes and colors. This card could be changed just by choosing different ink. Love that!

Hello, Dear Friend

Large sentiments can make your cards pop.  Life is Grand has the perfect font combination along with spot on greetings. Hello, Dear Friend is probably my favorite in the set. Which one is your favorite?

Hello, Dear Friend Ginny Harrell Stampin' Up!

Want to create this look on your succulents? Ink up the stamp using Pear Pizzazz. Use a dauber to add Gorgeous Grape ink to the edge of your stamp blossom. Stamp directly on your card front. Make sure you CLEAN your stamp in between stamping so you don’t get Gorgeous Grape ink on your Pear Pizzazz ink pad. I also used a mask to cover up the blossoms before I added the leaves.

Simple cards can be a challenge

Keep this card simple with a couple of cardstock layers for interest. You can  use your Stamparatus for the sentiment and mass produce this card with no mistakes.  What is even better?? There are coordinating Four Seasons framelits to go with the Painted Seasons Bundle. Adding the framelits to your craft stash will make this set even more versatile.

Remarkable InkBig Blog Hop – Petal Palette Sneak Peek

Welcome to another Remarkable Ink Big Blog Hop. Today demonstrators from around the world are sharing sneak peeks of products from the New 2018 Occasions Catalog. You are going to love these creative cards and ideas!

Let’s get hopping….

I have created two cards using Petal Palette. This stamp set has beautiful watercolor type images. Just right for watercoloring, Blends, markers or watercolor pencils. They even look wonderful left uncolored. Bonus – they have matching thinlits.

My first card uses the bird image and I left him black and white. I like the bold lines and thought he looked classy sitting on the green branches. The designer paper is Merry Little Christmas and I sponged it with Pool Party ink to make the leaves have the blue cast to them.

As I am always in need of sympathy cards I decided to use this set and made several to put in my card stash. The roses and leaves are colored with the new Blends markers. I absolutely love the way this came together.

I know the other stampers will have some great ideas to share. Hop on over to Kadie Labadie to see what she has created for you.

Thanks for stopping  by today. Happy Stamping!
