There’s more about Amazing You that I’ll be sharing soon. Well, I’ll give you a hint… there is a  coordinating set of Thinlits that you can also get for FREE! Some samples next week. You are going to love it!

Amazing YOu Thinlits, Stampin' Up!,

Are you wondering about the “masking” part referred to in the blog post title? That’s how I got the great gold accent behind the flower.

I’ve been playing a lot with masking the last week or two and decided to create a video tutorial for you. I show you two types of masking. You will see they are easy and easier!

Design Notes for Amazing You Card:

First, I inked up the flower stamp with Calypso Coral and then I used a Stampin’ Write Marker to ink up the leaves. I created a mask of the flower and leaves then used that to cover the Calypso Coral and Wild Wasabi image. Next, I used VersaMark and Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder with the sunburst stamp. I thought the “celebrate” repeated along side in Calypso Coral ink was a good way to finish it off. Finally, I added some Gold Metallic Thread behind the focal image. You can never go wrong adding some gold.

Don’t forget, you can get this stamp set for free. Just order $50 in products from the Occasions catalog or the Annual Catalog. For each $50 you purchase you will qualify for a Free item.

Thanks for stopping by today.



So Very Much Stamp Set for March Customers

Today is the last day of March. Sadly, it is also the very last day of Sale-A-Bration. I was fortunate to have many people order this month to take advantage of the great FREE items from Sale-A-Bration. I thought I’d give the Sale-A-Bration  So Very Much stamp set a workout and make my March thank you cards using this. By the way, you can still order today and earn Sale-A-Bration items!

So Very Much stamp set, Stampin' Up!,, thank you card

This is really a pretty simple card, but one I like a lot. To be honest, I’d been saving the scraps from one of the special sheets from the Affectionately Yours Designer Series paper for a while. Most of the cards are like this one but some have a slightly different shaped paper behind the Thank you. I thought they all looked pretty nice however.

The little flower was from a different sheet a paper from the same packet. It’s also a special sheet, with some bits of copper through it. I punched it out with the Petite Petals Punch.
