Epic Celebrations 2018 Sale A Bration

Epic Celebrations 2018 Sale A Bration

Well, having a teen made me instantly like the Epic Celebrations 2018 Sale A Bration set from Stampin’ Up!  My daughter is learning to play guitar, she loves music, and of course these kind of shoes are in style right now!  Perfect! 

I knew I wanted to have the shoes and the earphones be a popped up focal point, but I felt it needed more than just stamping.  So I decided to heat emboss and fussy cut them!  It’s always hard to do justice to heat embossing on camera and video.  However, it makes such a big difference!

And here is the Epic Celebrations 2018 Sale A Bration video tutorial:

Hanging Garden 2018 Occasions Catalog

Hanging Garden 2018 Occasions Catalog

This Stampin’ Up! Hanging Garden 2018 Occasions Catalog set reminded me of my childhood 🙂  Yes my moms house was filled with hanging plants in the old macrame hangers… Lol… apparently that’s a good thing since it evoked happy feelings!

This card was created for a color challenge here on StampingCatCrew.com, and I loved the bright pops of color!  The card is super easy to create.  Just start with an A2 card base in Whisper White cut at 8.5″ x 5.5″.  Score and fold in half at 4.25″.  I stamped each of my plants and the sentiment on white cardstock and trimmed close.  Then I mounted these on the background colors Melon Mambo, Tempting Turquoise, Daffodil Delight, and black.  Each of these was cut 1/8″ bigger than the white.

A simple tip I share is that you can change the color of your ribbon.  For example, here I used Melon Mambo marker on the white.  However, you can also use alcohol based Stamin’ blends markers, ink pads, or re-inkers!  A color to match every project!  How cool is that??

My non perfect (but so fun!) Brusho Technique Waterfront

My non perfect (but so fun!) Brusho Technique Waterfront

My non perfect (but so fun!) Brusho Technique Waterfront is a leap of faith on my part!  When I shot the video I had just had a class with mixed experiences!  It reminded me of how some folks LOVE to color and others don’t!  Whether it stems from patience or process each technique offers something for everyone!  This happens to be an actual scene, however Brusho is amazing as just a background and is much more forgiving that way! So for the folks who wanted more control that may have been better to start with.

Watch for my upcoming tutorial on just doing a background, it’s so easy!  In the meantime here is my good, bad, and not really ugly…lol…  I love the impressionistic look and am not so OCD that I can’t appreciate the messy look… she says smiling!  However, that being said, I love to color!  In truth I enjoy every step of the process and don’t mind going slow.  There is a definite learning curve (I’m still on the lower rung!)  But I LOVE the possibilities!  So just play!

And, as always, remember to make your envelope pretty!  This makes such a huge impact for such a little effort!
