Texture Boutique Embossing Machine is Back!!

Hello,

It's embossing made easy. Texture Boutique is the perfect, portable tool to create embossed cards, tags, embellishments, and more. Use it with our Stampin' Up! exclusive Textured Impressions Embossing Folders.

Pals Paper Art Sketch #189

Hello,

One of my goals this year is to use more of my designer series paper for projects. I'm sure I'm not alone when we say we all love pattern paper and just don't want to cut it up. But I promised myself that I won't order another pack until the first one is gone. LOL

I had the Kaleidoscope Designer Series Paper sitting on my desk when I was looking at this challenge. I decided that I was going to use this paper along with the coordinating colours in the paper. At first this was a challenge and I played around with a few colour combo's but once I laid this card out, I knew I had to go with it!

Freshly Made Sketches #120

Happy Monday,

It was a snowy weekend here with lots blowing snow, roads closures and very cold temperatures. It was a great weekend to stay home and stamp!! I had a chance to play along with this week's Freshly Made Sketches. This week's sketch was clean, simple and was created by Rita.

As I was looking for some inspiration, I was browsing the new Occasions Mini. I saw a similar idea on a gift bag on page 16. It got me thinking, I should try this on a card. I'm thrilled how it turned out and that it worked with this week's sketch!

Fresh

Stampin' Up! Supplies

Stamp: Perfect Pennants

Card Stock: Gumball Green Cordinations, Whisper White, and Island Indigo

I love using the Coredinations Card stock with my Impression Folders. After I run it thru the Big Shot Machine, I took my sanding blocks and sanded it. I love how it gives a distress look to the project.

I hope you have a chance to play along with this week's sketch OR if you need some inspiration check out the gallery for some idea's!
