This guy was a lot of fun to color - I used watercolor paper and SU markers. It's one of my favorite way to color these days. The markers blend really well on the watercolor paper, and you can even remove some color to acheive highlights. Speaking of markers - don't forget about my chance to win your own set of markers! See the link to the right of the page - yeah - that's it, up there at the top! I used a rub-on on my twill ribbon for the sentiment. That's a good way to squeeze in a sentiment if you are running short on room, and you know me, I can't/don't usually have a project that doesn't incorporate ribbon! This set in on my wish list! Along with several others....however, I'm waiting to see what's gonna come out on the Last Chance List. That will be posted on June 1st! It's right around the corner....I can't believe that we'll be getting a new Stampin' Up! catalog in just a little over a month! I'm still drooling over the one that I've got! And some of the DSP I will be horribly sad to see go. But, I know Stampin' Up! will have PLENTY of other goodies to fill my wish list and to long for!

Here was the creation!
I also used my new Nestabilities dies for the oval and scalloped oval that I layered it with. It was the first time I used them, and I think I'm gonna love them. They work great with my Big Shot, and I like to have the variety of sizes that come in a package.I used silver embossing powder to emboss the image, then colored in the flowers with my Stampin' Up! markers. It was one way for me to get some silver in the card. I was really wishing that I'd had some silver paper while assembling this card. The gray strip was embossed with my Big Shot too, using SU exclusive Texturz Plates.
Stop back tomorrow for a look at the gift I made her!
Stamps: Blooming with Happiness
Paper: Very Vanilla, Basic Gray, Riding Hood Red, Rockabilly DSP (polka dot paper)
Accessories: Riding Hood Red Taffeta Ribbon, Big Shot, Nestabilities Oval and Scalloped Ovals, SU Markers, Silver embossing powder

Here is a page I created that shows the boys happy with one another. This is another page that started as a 6 x 6 page, converted into a 12x12 page. The 6x6 page:
This was SUPER simple - punched 3 circles of different sizes, crumpled up a strip of paper, and adhered the word 'brother' that had been die cut with the Big Shot - Billboard font. I attached that to a 12x12 page:
I think the page looks a lot better in person - but don't they all???

Well, they do in my neck of the woods - of the bridal variety that is! My mom, Aunt Patricia and myself are hosting a bridal shower for my cousin Ashley. Remember when I posted this favor box I had made a sample of? Yeah - that's the same wedding. Anyway - co-hosting this bridal shower meant that I was in charge of invites. So, they go a little something like this:
A little bling:
A little embossing:

This also starts the new promotion from Stampin' Up! If you click on the picture below you can see all of the wonderful offerings they have to offer....such as: buy three packs of Designer Series Paper and get one free! This includes the Specialty paper - and that stuff is awesome; cardstock weight, textured, some has glossy images! Also - get your hands on a brand new stamp set that won't even be offered until JULY! How awesome is that? Jumble Alphabet - a nice mix of fonts and sizes. And, even better - sign up to become a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator yourself for just $75! No need to worry about layoffs, you can work around your own schedule, and you get product at a discount! There is no better time to sign up than now!
So - since it is National Scrapbooking Month, I'd like to ask - where to do you get your scrapbooking ideas from? I really like Pagemaps.com for layouts. But other than that ??? I have to admit, I don't do a lot of scrapbooking - even tho, that is the sole reason I started with Stampin' Up! I wanted to get my supplies at a discount and scrap all of my boys' memories - I just didn't realize all of the other great things that can be done with paper!
This month, I vow to you, my faithful blog readers, to show at least 3 scrapbook pages a week. Yikes - that's a big commitment! I feel like I'm shunning the cardmaking, decor crafting person inside of me....I know I can do it tho!!!
Okay - I'll be creating some pages tonight in the quiet hours at my house!
