Blended Bloom Sneak Peek Blendabilities

I am just LOVING the New Stampin Up! Blendabilities and the new Blended Bloom Single Stamp.  Here is my first attempt using them (Rich Razzleberry and Daffodil Delight) -- have never used any alcohol based markers until SU released them.   Pretty happy with the result and can't wait to get more colors!!

Just another reason why I LOVE being a Stampin UP! Demonstrator -- get to pre-order and play with products before they are available for purchase.   You too can get your hands on these -- just click here to join my team!   The Blendabilities and Sneak Peek products CAN be included in your Starter Kit!

Perfect Blend Father's Day Card

Here is sample #2 for my May Classes.   I love the "Triple Time Stamping" technique -- it is fun, versatile and no one card is the same.    I went for two of my favorite sets (Gorgeous Grunge and Perfect Blend).   I think the card turned out well!   This sample is for Father's Day, but can easily be made into a Birthday or Thank you card.   

I love how the Coffee Cup turned out.   At first I just had the cup in all Vanilla with the DSP (Designer Series Paper) but it blended too much with the card. Next I stamped it in all Baked Brown Sugar and still needed something. . . . .So I cut the top off my Vanilla Cup and put it on the Baked Brown Sugar Cup.  That made it!!    I think on my next sample I will add some Espresso Twine or Linen Thread and a "coffee cup ring" (bottom of cup with ink).    

Hope you enjoy the Project!

Thanks for Caring. . . .

Working on my May class samples. . .  here is one of the three projects my Stampin Ladies will be making.   This a Modified CASE (copy and share everything) of a card on a facebook group, but unfortunately I can not find the original post to give credit to the person.  My apologies!

2014-2015 Sneak Peek -- Work of Art

I was lucky enough to attend the New Catalog Premier on Monday, April 28th.   Not only did I get to go home with a copy of the New catalog, but was also given one of the NEW stamp sets -- Work of Art (Available for Purchase June 2014).   There were many demonstrations done at the event using this stamp set and fell in love with it the moment I saw it.   So, you can imagine my excitement when I got to take it home!!  

Here are two Modified Cased cards from the New Catalog Premier!   Hope you enjoy! :)

SO excited that today is the Demonstrator's pre-order for the 2014-2015 new catalog, and Blendabilities (alcohol markers).   More wonderful Sneak Peek projects to come this month!
