Feels Like Home Christmas

 I used a bunch of stamp sets right on the Designer Series Paper. I just looked for a mixture of leaves and Christmas looking things! lol

Watercolor Pencil Fun

 I have always loved watercolor as a medium. I usually like it better when they belong to others lol. When painting, I have never been able to achieve the effects like I do with acrylic paints. However, with color pencils and stamping I get much better results. 

I had fun yesterday making these four cards. I began stamping the images onto watercolor paper with Crumb Cake ink, then coloring with pencils and a small paint brush. A Water Brush works well too. I just painted them various colors, then when finished, I selected colors of cardstock that complemented each piece. Next I went to my DSP stash and chose paper colors that complemented what I had gathered so far. I then used the retired Scripty embossing folder. I used the same layout for each one, embellishing them with 2021-2022 In Color Jewels and some retired Glitter Dots. I also used the Triple Banner punch to flag the ends of the DSP.

Quick and Easy.... And GORGEOUS!

 In the Holiday Catalog there is some simply stunning Designer Series Paper called Blackberry Beauty. It does have coordinating products that Stampin' Up! is known for. However, I created the following cards using just the DSP and the Ephemera Pack. They worked up quick and easy, and they are quite lovely. I did use some other stamps that I have on hand and a diecut from the Sparkle of the Season bundle. For less than $25 you can have the DSP and the Ephemera Pack to make a type of card kit! Use other stamps and ribbons you have on hand to make some magic!

Holiday Catalog and SALE-A-BRATION

 Here are some samples from the Holiday Catalog and the SALE-A-BRATION Brochure.

Feels Like Home SAB: I used the Brick & Mortar EF on Cinnamon Cider cs. Then sponged Soft Suede ink on for an old brick look. The image was stamped in Stazon and colored with watercolor pencils and a Water Painter, then mounted on Misty Moonlight cs. Card Base is Very Vanilla thick.

Sparkle of the Season bundle: Peaceful Prints DSP from SAB. Retired ribbon, although there is a blk. & white check ribbon in the Holiday Catalog that would be awesome!
,

Plentiful Plants bundle: Painted Texture EF, Pacific Point and So Saffron are featured colors. Yellow enamel dots
