Stampin' Royalty Challenge #288 ~ By The Sea

No Laughing!  It's going to be a bit of stretch to you as to what this card has to do with "By The Sea", but honestly... this was all I've got!  I don't have any "Sea" appropriate stamps other than the ship, but I wasn't feeling it.  I gave up on my attempt at card making and went to fold laundry.  During my procrastination, I came across my beach cover up!  Yes... that is my connection:) If you don't believe me check out the picture of my print below:)  Make sure to head over to Stampin' Royalty and check out the other more 'sea worthy' creations;)
 I love the print on it so decided to attempt it by stamping in versamark and then embossing in white embossing powder.  Once that was done I used my Aqua Painter (I can hear the gasps of anyone who has stamped with me before as I've never been great friends with my aqua painter:)  I used the same colour ink, Blushing Bride, as the cardstock I was stamping on:)  If you don't have the White 1 1/4" Jute Ribbon then you NEED it!  I'm not usually a fan of wide ribbon but I'm LOVE with this one:)

Another Option for a Gift from Me:)

When I did the supply list for this card I forgot to mention the stamp set!  This adorable sentiment is from the hostess set  A Whole Lot of Lovely!  These sets are actually easy to miss due to the location in the catalogue but if you take a look at pages 179-181 in your catalogue, you'll notice that there are a number of stamp sets that you can earn by using your hostess dollars earned when having a Stampin' UP! workshop or making a purchase over $200.


As a special to the end of July, if you aren't quite purchasing the $50 required to use this month's coupon for a free textured impressions embossing folder, I've got another option for you!  Purchase $25+ and earn a package of the stunning Metallic Foil Doilies! This offer is good until 9pm PST on July 31st!

Monochromatic Magic:)

Okay, I promise I won't use the decorative masks on every card for the rest of my life, but lord are they addictive!   I love the variance in colour when you work on a monochromatic card with them!

Thank You So Much!

I have to start today's post by saying "Thank you!"  I found out last night that I was in the top 20 Stampin' UP! demonstrators in Canada and was invited to attend their Founder's Circle Retreat in St. George Utah!  I wouldn't have been able to do it without all of you!  The sentiment on this card couldn't have been more fitting for what I'd like to say to everyone that has supported me in my Stampin' Up endeavours.

Stampin' Royalty Challenge #287 ~ Keep It Simple!

I went a little RETRO today with this card.  For some reason this reminds me of the beaded curtains of the 70's!  This was also created using the decorative mask that I used on yesterday's card.  You can check out the video below on how to use SU's decorative masks!  I added in a few sequins and the White Perfect Accents  to complete the look. Funny how Delightful Dijon looks like a wood tone in this pic!  Watercolor Thank You is another one of those single stamps that is the PERFECT size for a card sentiment!
