Watercolor Paper and Dragonflies...The Perfect Mix!

Did you see the dragonfly posting from the other day?  No?  Well just check out a previous blog post this week...and check it out.....
 
How about this stunning card?
 
This card was created by Shelli Gardner from the recent On Stage Event.....are you wondering....
 
How Did She Do That?
 
Let me tell you...SUper Simple!
 
 
The background CS is Watercolor Paper and all she did was using a few of our new Watercolor Pencils....WHAT?  WHAT?????   Watercolor Pencils?????
 
Yes...that's right...they are coming back...in the Occasions Catalog....OMG...are you excited?
I am excited...I always loved our Watercolor Pencils...actually I hoarded mine (remember them...they came in a tin?)...the unfortunate part of the previous Watercolor Pencils were that they didn't match our colors...but HELLO...these do! 
 
Okay.....sorry.....I got off track....
 
So to create this technique.....take multiple like colors and scribble onto your Watercolor Paper (have you used this paper....you must!).....You can do as little or as much as you would like closely together. Like this....

 
Then with our Stampin' Spritzer filled with plain ol' tap water.....spritz the paper with the water....it will kind of bead up and then bleed out....(no worries...no cardstock was hurt during this technique)....and it gives you that watercolor look....be sure to set aside and allow to dry...or you can use your heat tool and help it dry quickly....

 
Let's take another look...shall we?
 
 
Interested in trying this technique?  Let's plan a Play Date....and gather together some friends and we can all create this fun card...and learn something new as well!
 
I'm currently opening dates for in home parties (your place or mine)...or a private class...for you and your friends/family...Contact me today....and let's plan it!
 
Have a SUper Stampin' Day!
 
Glimmer Hugs!

Stampin' Up! Ultimate Blog Hop in Honor of Breast Cancer Awareness

 I'm super excited to be a part of this fun blog hop.... When I heard of this fun hop from Janet Wakeland....I had to jump at the chance to be a part of this.  
 Breast Cancer Awareness is a very important cause...just just for the month of October for it should be brought to our attention every day....but we especially have made October the month to remind us of how important it is to be tested.....
On a personal note, two years back I wasn't feeling well.  I went for the blood work, x-rays and all the normal types of testing....I was then sent for an abdominal ultrasound and there was something that showed up....so to further understand what it was, I was then sent for more x-rays and a CAT scan...well....it was made quite clear that I had a lemon-sized mass in my left kidney....so after discussing it at length with my urologist the decision was made to remove the kidney. We didn't know at the time what it was, malignant, non malignant, had to spread, was it encapsulat…

Out With The Old...In With the New Blog Hop

OUT WITH THE OLD AND IN WITH THE NEW BLOG HOP
Thanks for stopping by today....I would like to welcome to our Blog Hop....we are saying good-bye to the old...and welcoming in the new!  Are you ready?
Let's put on our hopping shoes and go!
So...let's take a look....can you see what's old and what's new?

First off...the bear was used from the Cookie Cutter Christmas Stamp Set Item # 142043 along with the coordinating punch Cookie Cutter Builder Punch Item # 140396. 

The new is the Lift Me Up Bundle Item # 144711 (w) and 144712 (c).  The stamp set is Lift Me Up and the Thinlits are Up & Away...the clouds were also done using the Thinlits Dies. 

I also used our Cardstock Vellum and cut out the coordinating pieces for the back of the balloon...along with the basket thinlit. 

I love this little bear....he's not just for babies and Christmas...I can see so many other things done using him.
Thanks for stopping by....time to hop on over to the next blog!

OCTOBER's THEME IS "Just Decorate it" I'm SUper excited to be a part of this hop.....I am stampin' my way to Alaska....and I would like to share with you one of my most favorite projects...... This is a SUper easy home decor' project to create.... All you need is: A 12 x 12 frame of your choice (I got mine at a big box store with a 50% off coupon) Basic Black 12 x 12 cardstock (#124267) Serene Scenery Designer Series Paper Stack (#141642) I was going to be a downloadable file to create this frame, but it's so simple...so I just posted the information here.... Just trim down the 6x6 DSP to fit the frame as desired...it's that simple. You can even change the inside picture for all the different seasons by using any of our DSP (which, by the way, they are on sale for this month) If you do not have a demonstrator, come on over …
