Petal Palette Simple White on White Card

Welcome to my blog today! I'm so happy that you stopped by! Today I've got a simple and stinkin' adorable (!!!) card for you that gives you ANOTHER sneak peek at new product from the Occasions Catalog.




Now how cute is that?!? I went really simple here both with my design and my color palette. As soon as I saw that little bird in the Petal Palette stamp set I knew I wanted to create a minimalist card with just a tiny pop of color, and that's exactly what I did!




To stamp my bird, I dug out my Many Marvelous Markers and colored right on my stamp. Did you know you can do that to make a multi-colored stamp? This technique works so well with the red rubber clear mount stamps. I used Pacific Point for the bird, Chocolate Chip for the branch, and Old Olive for the leaves. I just love how that little bird pops against the crisp white! I zigzagged some Stitched Edge ribbon behind the popped up square for another pop of color.




With a white on white palette, sometimes you need to add a little texture. I did that with the Polka Dot Basics Embossing Folder. I also added another little splash of color by doing some marker flicking with my Pacific Point Marker diagonally across the upper left corner of the card. Those little extras always add the perfect finishing touch to a card, don't you think?


Now once the Occasions Catalog goes live (January 2nd), you'll be able to save 10% by getting the Petal Palette Bundle. I love that Stampin' Up! bundles their products so we can save money!

Global Design Project 118 | Sketch Challenge

Welcome Stampers! I'm so happy you're visiting my blog! I've got some inspiration for you today with my entry to this week's Global Design Project challenge, and it's also a SNEAK PEEK of some super cool products from the new Occasions Catalog that goes live January 2.



This week's Global Design Project theme is a sketch challenge. The sketch below is the inspiration for my card.

I just love playing along with these challenges! They help get my creativity flowing - especially when I am using new product. For my card, I decided to play around with my NEW Petal Palette Bundle from the 2018 Occasions Catalog. If you have your Occasions catalog handy, you can check it out on page 23.


This card was a lot of fun to create. I got to do some coloring with my Stampin' Blends markers, which I swear makes me look like a professional - don't you think? It is so incredibly easy to get your shading just perfect with these markers. They are alcohol based, so blending is a cinch! I can't get enough of them!


Do you notice the transitional colors in the background? I used my new Brusho Crystal Color powder to get this effect. If you want to see how I did it, check out my video below:



I used Vellum as the vertical layer and wrapped some white bakers twine around twice then tied in a bow to add just the perfect touch.


So how do you like that transitional background and the new products? I'd love for you to leave me a comment and tell me what you think! You would really make my day!

Hey - if you need to stock up on any of the products I used to make this card, I would be so thrilled if you purchased them from my online store. Your support means so much to me. Make sure to use my host code:

Year-End Sales Event!

Hellooooo Stampers! I am back! Can you believe my long hiatus? My goodness have I ever been busy. A quick update from me - I got a promotion at work! Yay! I have been up to my eyeballs in work trying to get everything in line in my new position. It's been very hectic, and I had to step back from stamping for just a bit to get everything under control, but I am hopeful that I'll have some consistent time to get back to stamping and inspiring you all! I so appreciate your patience while I've been gone and hope you're excited to be inspired now that I'm back!




My first order of business is to quickly tell you about this amazing promotion going on right now from Stampin' Up! Our Occassions catalog is about to release and Sale-A-Bration is about to begin which means we've got some beautiful stuff retiring from our Holiday catalog. Now is the time of year where you get some amazing deals on these retiring products, and you won't want to miss out! I supposed the old saying "get it before it's gone" definitely applies.
