Tuesday Tip and Technique - Beautiful You

Starting something new this week - I'll be posting a video each week with a tip and technique each Tuesday.  Starting this week with paper piercing.  What is paper piercing?  There are 2 ways as crafters/card makers that we paper pierce - this week I'm showing you how to stamp on DSP (designer series paper)- fussy cut it out and piece it on to your stamped image.  Watch the video- 

Hope you enjoyed the video- leave a comment and let me know!

Don't forget that the DSP is on the retirement list and only while supplies last!

Dragonfly Dreams!

The ladies loved the cards they created tonight at the 3-2-1 class.  What is a 3-2-1 class you're asking?  $3 for 2 cards created in 1 hour.  A great class for those who say they have no time to create. I focused on the Dragonfly Dreams bundle for both cards.  Here is the first card-

No stamping on the front, but we stamped the greeting and some other images on the inside and the envelopes.  Love these colors together- Basic Gray, Smokey Slate, Whisper White and Sweet Sugarplum, with a hint of Silver.  

Quick, Simple Beautiful!

Don''t forget- only 10 days left of Sale A Bration- make sure to place your order before the Free product is gone!

Remarkably Created Blog Tour- Party Animal

Welcome to the March edition of the RemARKably Creative Blog Tour.  We decided to focus on the Party Animal Suite on pages 4 & 5 of the Occasions Catalog.  I love the stamp set that is part of this Suite - Balloon Adventures #142823

Nothing goes together better then Balloons and Birthdays!

I decided to pair this stamp set with some of our 2015-2017 In colors that will be gone May 31, 2017 or while supplies last.  I love Watermelon Wonder and Mint Macaron so I used these colors on my card.

The balloons and the greeting on the card were stamped in Mint Macaron Classic Ink #138326. Watermelon Wonder  Classic Ink #138323 was used for the strings on the balloons on the envelope and for the banner on the card.  I also used Emerald Envy Classic Ink #141396 (2016-2018 In Color) for the one balloon on the envelope and the strings on the balloons on the card. Cardstock is Mint Macaron #138337, Watermelon Wonder #138334,  Emerald Envy #141415 and Whisper White #100730.  The Watermelon Wonder layer was embossed with the Lucky Stars Embossing Folder # 135817.  The final touch is the Emerald Envy star on the banner - this is from the 2016-2018 In Color Enamel Shapes pack # 141410.  I popped up the balloons and the banner with Stampin' Dimensionals #104430 and used Snail Adhesive #104332 for the layers.  You'll need the a Whisper White Medium Envelope #107301 to mail your card.  

This is truly a 5 minute card to create.  Love clean and simple!

I hope you enjoyed my card - next stop is Arden-

Blessings- Missy
