Brush of Art

Do I have a treat for you today!!

Not only is this post a DOstampers challenge it is also a

I was so excited to do this weeks challenge so I could use products from the up and coming NEW Catalog.  Ooooo, wait until you see it!!!  You are going to fall in LOVE with sooooo many products.  Stampin' Up! has out done themselves with this catalog.  I wish I could show you all of it...but you are going to have to wait.  SORRY!

What do you think?

Are you wondering what some of these NEW colors are?  Well let me tell you!  The green is called "Emerald Envy" and the pink color is called "Flirty Flamingo".  Both of these colors are some of the new In colors.  I have to be honest, when I first saw the new In colors I wasn't in love with them.  You know how that goes.  But now that I have my hands on them, they are really growing on me.

Did you notice the DSP?  Yes, that comes from a new DSP stack!  I wish I could tell you about everything, but some things just have to wait.  

Make sure that you check out the other DOstampers that are joining in on the challenge this week.

Happy Stamping!

Retired list

It's that time of year again!  Time to say good bye to retiring Stampin' Up! products.  
Things to know:
  • Some items are discounted up to 50% off
  • Many items are only available "while supplies last" - so shop early
  • The Washi Label Punch is already "out of stock"
  • Even though the host/stampin' rewards items are listed as retiring, you'll still need to qualify for them with a $150 or more order (then select them as your Stampin'  Rewards).
  • The list may seem longer than in past years, but remember...the list includes both the Annual AND Occasions Catalogs (new for this year)
  • Shop early to ensure you get your favorites before they are gone!
*Due to high demand for retiring stamps, we'll keep producing retiring stamps until May 22 (but not accessories, which are only while supplies last).

Hues of Blue

This weeks challenge is such a nice and soothing picture.  I wish I were there, on the beach and the warmth!  I live in MN so it is still a little chilly here.

So from the about picture I decided to make a card that was very easy with the colors.

I told you I went easy!!

  • For the flower I took and stamped off before stamping the large flower.  This is stamped in Marina Mist.
  • The 2nd flower is stamped in Pacific Point.
  • Stem is stamped in Old Olive.
  • Did you happen to notice the Rhinestone on the flower???  This is called "Iced Rhinestone".  These just came out in the Occasions Catalog.  LOVE THEM!!
  • Below you will see a complete list of Stampin' Up! products that I used.
I just did this card in my Card Buffet gathering.  They LOVED IT as well.  This card maybe simple, but I think it is elegant as well.

Check out the rest of the DOstampers to see their creations!

SHOP 24/7!!

Happy Stamping!

Remarkable Color Challenge

Here we are another week has gone by.  Last week in MN it was nice and sunny and this week as I write this post it is snowing!!!  NO!!!!!  It must go away.  

For this weeks color challenge I just wasn't sure what to do.  It took me awhile to figure out what I was going to do.  I must have had a creative block going on!  But when I got home everything just started to click and away I went in creating my card.  I hope you like it!

If I so say myself...I love how the flower turned out!  I used a Blender Pen to watercolor the flower.  

  • The lightest color of the flower if Blushing Bride and the darker shading is done with Watermelon Wonder.  Great colors to blend together.
  • The ribbon is starting to grow on me.  It is the new ribbon for the newest    In-colors.  This is Watermelon Wonder.
  • For the "Thanks" on the card.  That comes from a framelit set called "Greeting Framelits.
Below is a list of all the products that I used for this card.  

You must check out the other DOstamper Stars that are also participating in this weeks challenge.

Cuppa of Tea Challenge

I am loving this challenge!!!  Stampin' Up! came out with the cutest Bundle for this challenge.  It is called "A Nice Cuppa".  Isn't it the cutest!!!  I don't even drink coffee or tea and I fell in love with it!

Now that you have seen the set you are wondering what I did for a card?

There were so many idea's I had, it was hard to do just one.  But I narrowed it down and came up with this!

With the Bundle shown above Stampin' Up! has also come out with a DSP stack and some darling charms to go with it.  I have used some of the DSP in the card.  Below you will find a full list of products that I used on this card.

As always we have more of the DOstampers creating for this challenge.  You have to go check them out!

Sketch a Bunny

Here we are for another week of the DOstampers Challenge Thursday!

Being that we are only a couple weeks out from Easter, I thought I have to do an Easter Card with the Sketch.  I cannot believe it is already Easter this year!  The time is flying by!!

When I seen this cute little bunny of course I had to get it.  Isn't it cute?  This is a new stamp set called "Friends & Flowers".  It goes together with the Festive Flower Builder Punch.

Friends & Flowers Clear-Mount Stamp Set by Stampin' Up!        Festive Flower Builder Punch by Stampin' Up!
When making my tag for this card, I wanted to make an egg shaped design.  But I also wanted to use the Festive Flower Punch again.  So what I did was punch out a small petal out of this punch and then took the Large Oval Punch.  Once I punched out the petal I took the Oval punch and put the petal through the bottom of the punch so it would put the round end on for the egg.  Love doing this with my punches.  Using them in a different way.

Below is a list of Stampin' Up! products that I used on this card.  I hope you enjoyed today's card.  If you would like to see more projects for this challenge check out the rest of the DOstamper Stars.
