rubberFUNatics Weekly Challenge #170

 Good Morning, Stampers!

(click to enlarge)

Thank you for joining me for this week's
rubberFUNatics Weekly Challenge! 
This is a great clean and simple sketch - 
I know you will create something amazing!


I had to dust off my Birds and Branches stamp set for this
card today. My stamp sets and embellishments from the annual catalog 
seem to get lost when the mini catalogs go live -  I need to keep
reminding myself to use them! Those sweet little Loose Flower
Flourishes add just the right amount of soft color and
dimension and perfect for Springtime!



SU!pplies:
Stamps: Birds and Branches, Ornate Thanks
Ink: Crumb Cake, Early Espresso, Soft Succulent, Pool Party, Misty Moonlight
Paper: Crumb Cake, Basic White, Soft Succulent
Accessories: White Baker's Twine, Stitched So Sweetly, Loose Flower Flourishes, Birds and More dies, Bark embossing folder


Have fun creating with this week's sketch!

Control Freaks January Blog Hop - Favorite Stampin' Up! Color

 Hello, Stampers!


I'm so glad you could join us for the Control Freaks
January Blog Hop! Whether you are arriving from LeeAnn's
blog or just starting out here, I'm sure you will find some fun,
creative inspiration to incorporate into your papercrafting projects!


I have always been partial to pinks. I 💗PINK!
I was so happy when Polished Pink joined our list of colors!
The backgrounds on both cards are embossed and swiped with 
Whisper White ink to highlight the depth of the embossing.
It's a simple and fun technique that canbe used on any color card base.



This card features the Blessings of Home stamp
set with the Thanks and Hello embossing
folders. The floral image is stamped using Jet Black stazon ink
and colored using a water painter and Polished Pink ink.



This card features the Create with Friends and Magnolia embossing
embossing folder. To get the speckles, I watered down 
Whisper White ink and used my water painter to tap the ink onto the card.



SU!pplies:
Stamps: Create with Friends, Blessings of Home
Ink: Jet Black Stazon, Whisper White, Polished Pink
Paper: Shimmery White, Polished Pink
Accessories: Polished Pink ribbon, Magnolia embossing folder, Thanks and Hello embossing folder, Basic Rhinestones, Basic Pearls, Polished Pink Stampin' Blends, Water Painter, Flowers of Home dies

CCM Saturday Blog Hop - Celebrating Sale-A-Bration

Welcome to this week's Create with Connie Saturday Blog Hop!
This week, the team is celebrating Sale-A-Bration!


I fell in love the instant I saw the Sunshine and Rainbows
designer papers! There are so many design choices to choose from.
Here, I cut out a large rainbow and added a couple of clouds. I then
used another piece of Pool Party designer paper to stamp the sentiment.
I finished it off with lots of Wink of Stella to shimmer up the rainbow
to welcome a little one! So sweet!

Ink: Whisper White, Tuxedo Black
