And MONDAY creeps closer and closer! The BLOG HOP is coming up SOON - and I believe I'm going to be offering more BLOG CANDY on Monday - and I think a lot of people along the way will be, too. It starts at 7 a.m., so figure out when you'll have some time to go hopping! Twenty stops, with lots to look at - I KNOW you're excited! :D
So, I promised that we'd do, today and tomorrow, BRANCH OUT samples! I had SO much fun designing for this class! I did one spring, one summer, one fall, one winter, and one kind of everyday. And that's the order I'm going to post them in. :) So, here we go!!
Here's a hint for this set: Keep the backing off the large piece of rubber you take the stamps from. You'll see why, especially in summer - it makes a great "stencil" of sorts. I used it on this one, too, to make sure the "flowers" on the tree didn't go all over the sky! The "flowers" are the snowflake stamp in the set!!! I LOVE coming up with an out-of-the-box idea all by myself. LOL!
The background is the Jumbo Stampin' Around Wheel, Watercolor Vine - we did it in Versamark, then embossed it with clear embossing powder.
Card stocks: Certainly Celery, Pixie Pink, Whisper White
Inks: Real Red, Certainly Celery, Pixie Pink, Basic Brown, Bashful Blue
Accessories: Stipple brushes, dimensionals
I just love this set. It's SO easy to come up with fun cards! :) And you can see the "stencil" effect on the tree much easier on this card; it's a stipple brush and Garden Green ink!
Card stocks: Very Vanilla, Only Orange, Bashful Blue, Basic Black
Inks: Garden Green, Basic Black, Bashful Blue, Only Orange
Accessories: Stamp-A-Ma-Jig, Stampin' Up! Exclusive Texturz Plates, Big Shot
Don't forget to come back tomorrow to see the last three designs! I hope you have a wonderful day - and that you take the time to STAMP SOMETHING!!!!!
