Little Twinkle Swap Card

Good morning everyone! I hope you had a nice weekend. I am jumping back in with both feet today after coming home from Orlando! I've got my Retreat and Team Meeting this week and have a TON of things to get done! Hopefully, you were following my Facebook Group page and got to see all the amazing pictures from On Stage. It was a REALLY good weekend! 

Today, I am sharing a swap card I made. I didn't make any general swaps, just one for an organized swap with the Creating Success Team. We had to use Annual Catalog products, so I chose the sweet Little Twinkle stamp set. I chose Flirty Flamingo, Powder Pink and Night of Navy as my color palette. The ribbon is the Night of Navy Gingham and the stars are from the Twinkle Adhesive Backed Sequins. Lastly, I embossed the Powder Pink layer with the Striped Embossing Folder. 

Thanks for stopping by today!

November Tutorial Bundle Designer Blog Hop

Hello everyone! Welcome to the November Tutorial Bundle Design Team Blog Hop!  Today, we're celebrating the release of this month's Tutorial Bundle with a blog hop. We're each showing you a second project we created using the same stamp set we used in our Tutorial Bundle Project. 

Have you checked out the amazing line up of designers this round? 

And here is a little sneak peek of this month's tutorials. 

This month, my project features a few of the new Snowflake Showcase products.

My project in the tutorial bundle is a 3D project! I provide step by step instructions and photos so you can easily recreate it on your own! 

Now, I can't show you the actual project in the PDF, thats exclusive to those who earn it for free or who purchase it. But, I can show you another project I made with the same products! 

Hopefully, you checked out my post yesterday with my three watercolor ombre cards that featured these wonderful Snowflake Framelits. I am using them again today but in a more traditional way. First, I stamped the Melon Mambo cardstock with the Handwritten Background Stamp. Then I embossed some of the snowflakes in white Embossing Powder. Then, I added the snowflake swirl over them. Lastly, I added the sentiment and a few Basic Rhinestones. 

Now, back to the November Tutorial Bundle. Remember, our projects are all step by step tutorials. Each features the stamp set you see in the project on today's blog hop. 

You have several ways of receiving these tutorial bundles:

1. Order $50 from my online store between November 1-30, get the PDF for FREE.  

2. Purchase this month's 

All Star Tutorial Bundle (12 tutorials) PDF for $15.  
This is a one time purchase. 
3. Join my team! They always get them for free! 

Thanks so much for hopping along with us! Make sure you visit all the other amazing designers!

Snowflake Showcase Watercolor Ombre Cards

Hello everyone! I hope you are having a very Happy halloween! Today, in my studio, it's snowing! I am showing off the limited edition Snowflake Showcase products that will be available tomorrow, November 1st. These products will only be available until November 30 or until supplies run out. 

I will be live on Facebook showing you today's projects. If you miss it, I will upload the recording here when I'm done. 

Today's project was inspired by a video I saved years ago on Pinterest. She used watercolor paints and I wanted to see if I could achieve the same thing with our Stampin' Up Classic Ink. And, I love how it turned out! 

This one was made with Gorgeous Grape and Melon Mambo. 

This one was made with Lovely Lipstick and Pineapple Punch. 

This one was made with Bermuda Bay and Coastal Cabana. 

You can see the full selection of Snowflake Showcase products here. Remember, they'll be available beginning on November 1st. 

I also used the Frosted and Clear Epoxy Dots and Rhinesones to embellish the card. I used the Hexagon Embossing Folder to create texture on the Watercolor Paper.  I colored each piece with an Aquapainter and spritzed them with Frost White Shimmer Paint mixed with rubbing alcohol in a Spritzer.
You can find the heat embossing supplies here

I will be showcasing three more Snowflake Showcase products on Friday on my Facebook Group Page. Make sure you've joined the group page so you won't miss it!
