Hey There!

Well here is a new technique for you to try today.  This is watercolor washing.   You use our watercolor paper with the Aqua Painter.  You can see below how I did this.   Before opening your ink pad give it a squish together so that when you open it you can see the ink on the cover.   Add a bit of water to make it somewhat watery.   Take your Aqua Painter which also has water in it and grab some ink and wash it across the watercolor paper.  I used three different colors here.   Coastal Cobana,  Crisp Cantaloupe and Perfect Pistashio.    I also used the cork accessory I showed a few days back to finish off the card. 

Products Used:
Paper- Watercolor Paper #122595 - $4.95, Basic Black, Coastal Cabana
Accessories- Cork Accessories (made by cork and our word bubble framelits),  Aqua Painter, Uni Glo white pen
Stamp Set: Besty's Blossoms

Sweet Sorbet Cork Accessory Pack

It's still Sale A Bration time which means you can earn one of many of these great items from our Sale A Bration catalog.
The one below happens to be the Sweet Sorbet Accessory Pack
Comes with the spools of three baker's twine and a sheet of self adhesive cork images.  (58 pcs)   FREE! with a purchase of $50.00

I already used up my whole sheet and LOVED the idea of cork images so I decided to go purchase a sheet of cork.  I bought the thinnest piece possible so that I could punch through it with hand punches or framelit dies.

It punches nicely using our Stampin' Up! punches 
you can use any of our framelit dies which are compatiable with the Big Shot machine.

I used quite a few different punches and framelit dies

 I used our Stampin' Up! Uni Glo white pen to draw onto the cork. 
I also used our classic basic black ink pad and stamped right onto the cork.  Works great! Now add them to your cards, scrapbook pages, this and that book, the possiblities are endless~!

13 Going on 30!

My youngest daughter is turning 13 this friday!   wowza did time fly!  I have been  getting together her gifts and doing a bit of wrapping.  She is obsessed with chevron patterns and the coastal cabana color. I was able to find this adorable chevron coastal cabana wrapping paper at TJ Maxx and went to work wrapping.  I made these cute tags for her gifts with the Spiral Flower die.  I showed these a few days back on our chevron tag a bag gift bags.  I used our retired Stampin Up! Letterpress Numbers stamp set as I wanted them to be super large.  So sweet, just like my baby!!!  Hope you are inspired! 

Spiral Flower Die for the Big Shot
#129379 for $17.95
So fun and easy to make and use!
