Today was one of those days I felt ridiculously guilty about this Stampin’ Up! business of mine. I mean – is it right to be having this much fun making handmade cards and calling it ‘work’??
The answer is – You bet! Crafting up a storm to make fun sample cards it a huge part of my Stampin’ Up! Demonstratorship… and a super fun part. I love what I do.
Today I’m playing along with the awesome blog challenge website called the Global Design Project. They have a different weekly challenge each week but this week we’re casing the work of the delightful Louise Sharp.
This is Louise’s card that we’ve used to inspire our creations. Isn’t it stunning?
I was itching to colour today, so I’ve pulled out my Stampin’ Up! Watercolor pencils and my Best Birds stamp set. Colouring is my bliss… pure meditation and happiness.
I also love birds and this set was one for the first on my list when the Annual Catalogue was released last year.
I’ve used Shimmery White cardstock to stamp and colour in the bird with and the beautiful Woodland Embossing Folder, lightly sponged with White Craft Ink, onto the very bold Pumpkin Pie cardstock. The co-ordinating Birds & Blooms Thinlits Dies make die cutting out the birds and branch a piece of cake.
I’ve also continued the fun by stamping on the envelope and inside of the card as well. I’ll be sharing more ideas on ‘dressing up your envelopes’ in my ‘No Nude Envelopes’ post later this week.
Remember we have just a few days left of this year’s Sale-A-Bration.. Stampin’ Up!’s wonderful gift with purchase sale with a wild Joining Stampin’ Up! special too. Read all about it HERE!
