Let's PLAY in the GARDEN! Using Stampin' Up's Pansy Patch Bundle!

 What TIME is it?  It's JOURNEY time!   

Time for another creative JOURNEY using Stampin' Up products!

This JOURNEY was SO much fun!  I started with the Pansy Patch Bundle... such a wonderful set of stamps and dies!  I think this is one of my all time favorites!!

The AMAZING thing, was taking plain Basic White Cardstock and a base of Very Vanilla Cardstock and turning it into a work-of-art!!  Of course, the magic came from the  Stampin' Up Blending Brushes !!  I just loved how easily my colors blended, and how each die cut turned into a stunning addition to this card!  

Check out my YouTube tutorial... you can see the difference between 'other' blending brushes and Stampin' Ups brushes!

Hope you enjoyed this 'Creative Journey'!!

Butterfly MOTION Card! You've GOT to see this!!

 So I saw a post, with this amazing Butterfly card, where the wings actually FLAPPED!  I knew I had to figure this out!  So I searched YouTube and found a video geared towards kids that showed how to make a butterfly's wing flap!!  I adjusted it and TA DA!!!!  Let me know what you think.. you'll have to visit my tutorial to see it in actions!!  All dimensions and links to all products used can be found in the description!  You can get there here - Butterfly Motion Card

I used a retired Stampin' Up Butterfly die, but can't wait to try it with the new BUTTERFLY BRILLIANCE BUNDLE !  I also gold embossed the frame with using TEAR & TAPE ADHESIVE !  YES... you can use tape runner to adhere your gold embossing powder and then use your heat gun!
But WAIT... there's MORE!
Have you tried Stampin' Up's  GILDED LEAFING yet??  Well did you know that our MULTIPURPOSE LIQUID GLUE dries tacky.. so you can gold emboss OR use it with the gold leafing, just like I did on the butterfly!

Everything's Coming Up PANSY's!!

 What TIME is IT?  It's JOURNEY Time!

Time for another Creative Journey, using Stampin' Up products!

Just when I decide I absolutely have ENOUGH flower stamps and dies.... here comes Stampin' Up's Pansy Patch Bundle!!  I cannot tell you how AMAZING this bundle is... and the dies also emboss, creating the most realistic pansys!!  (is this supposed to be pansies??)

I created this card using the Pansy Patch Bundle, along with the most amazing blending brushes ever!  I have MANY but the Stampin' Up Blending Brushes are the smoothest, silkiest, best-blending brushes!

Take a look at how easy it was to create this card in the video below!  Then hop on over to my Stampin' Up website and gets yours NOW!!  (These are SO popular, I'm sure they'll be on back order soon!)

 I just love the sentiment 'You Brighten My Path' in Stampin' Up's Campology stamp set, so I thought I'd take this sentiment to heart with this LIGHT UP masculine card.  I also used the retiring Beautiful World stamp set to make a graduation card for my grandson, changing the sentiment to 'Adventure Awaits' and the inside sentiment to 'Congratulatons on this new beginning'.  

I don't know about you, but masculine cards are harder for me... no flowers... no bling... no glitter... lol, so this technique give me my POP without being girly!

Hope you enjoy... Pssst... tomorrow I'll be posting a flowery Pancy Patch card hiding in the picture behind the Light Up card...
