Did Someone Say Pearlescent Paper??

There have been many fellow Demonstrators that I have shown how to create pearlescent paper using regular card stock.   I have watched many videos, but unfortunately, didn't note anyone's name.  I say this because I am absolutely not going to take full credit for this technique or the gorgeous result that comes with it.  

That is one of the coolest benefits of being a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator - you get to belong to an amazing group of people that have amazing talent and creativity!


I seem to be really enjoying layers lately and the Sea & Shell Suite Collection allows me to do just that!



I love the stickers that are a part of the suite, but I admittedly did not know how I would use them.  So, the lightbulb went off and I realized they would be perfect for the back of an envelope as a little something extra.


If you would like to watch how I made the pearlescent effect on the card stock, watch the video below:

Is it too early for a Valentine's Day card?


Loving the adorable Snailed It Suite!  I know it may be a little early for a Valentine's Day card, but I couldn't help myself.  I saw this Designer Series Paper in the Blushing Bride and Real Red colors and immediately thought - Valentine's Day!



Lots of dimension with this project.


A Wish For Everything Cling Stamp set gave me the sentiment for my card.  It's funny, I rarely think to use the stamp set, but always find exactly what I am looking for when I open the case!

A Simple Hello


I needed a simple card with a simple sentiment and voila', here it is.  I CASE'd this beauty from www. scrapgore.de (sorry, I don't speak German, so I couldn't find the demo's name).  I made my card using the Notecard set.  Unfortunately, Whisper White has been discontinued, but replaced with a Basic White.  As soon as I receive mine, I will show everyone a comparison.

I decided to try out my new Blending Brushes - a total game changer!!  Check in later this week and watch my 'how to' video where I use the brush to give an awesome look to just plain card stock.



I have mentioned before that I am not a big whimsical stamp fan, but this suite is quickly becoming my favorite.  Look how cute the mushrooms are - and as a bonus - the coordinating dies make it super easy to cut out.

Perhaps this set brings me back about 30 years when I made my first Buche de Noel.  Fortunately, this card required  significantly less work!
