Stampin Up Very Versailles and Fanciful Fragrance

Hello stampy friends! 
I'm just popping in to share some cards I created with two stamp sets 
from the current Stampin Up catalog. 
As soon as I saw these stamps, I had to have them!!!

Fanciful Fragrances
Very Versailles

Below are 2 cards that I made using these stamp sets as well as some other Stampin' Up products!


First, I heat embossed the perfume images from Fanciful Fragrances with white embossing powder.
I used the Melon Mambo and Soft Suede ink refills to watercolor around the embossed images. The areas that are embossed resist the watercolor. 


Next, I stamped a 3 3/4 X 5 piece of Very Vanilla card stock with various images from Fanciful Fragrances and Very Versailles in a collage type style, Then I sponged the edges of the panel lightly with Soft Suede, Tip Top Taupe and Melon Mambo inks.


I stamped and heat embossed the sentiments with white embossing powder onto Soft Suede card stock and die cut the sentiment with one of the Stitched Rectangle dies.


 For embellishments, I added some Burlap ribbon and pearls.

I truly love the way these cards turned out!

Thanks for stopping by!

The Card Concept Challenge # 119 -Beautiful Butterflies

The Card Concept Challenge is back from Summer Break!!!! 
We hope everyone has had a wonderful summer and we hope you are ready to create with us again!
We LOVE seeing all of your beautiful creations!

Look at this gorgeous Inspiration Board!


I love, love, love these beautiful colors!!!!!
And butterflies!!!! WOW!!!

Here is my card:



I am a huge fan of Debby Hughes-Lime Doodle Designs. She has a unique and beautiful technique of no-line watercoloring. I gave it a try. Of course it is no where near her quality, but I think my card turned out quite pretty.
 I definitely enjoyed creating it!


I stamped the butterfly images onto watercolor paper with  Antique Linen Distress Ink. I painted the images with  Gansai Tambi water colors. I splattered the butterflies with the paint colors, but I also mixed some Perfect Pearls to some water, and splattered that as well. Debby always does this to her watercolor images to add sparkle! Well...I wanted even more sparkle, so I added some sequins, too!




I hope I have inspired you to join us here at
