I received my new stuff from my pre-order from the new catalog on Tuesday. Just one of the many advantages of being a demo. We get try out everything first. Well anyways I broke out the new in-colors and had fun playing with Baja Breeze paper and ink. I found a card I like and tweak it a little and this is what I came up with. The big bold flower is stamp with whisper white ink and then dried. Once it's dry you color on the flower with the pencil. Then for a fininshing touch I added whit gel pen. You can find great video on black magic here made by veronicaskreations.

Isn't this card cute. I pulled this card out of the swap drawer it was created by Crystal D Erzen. The scallop edge was created with the corner rounder. It takes a litte while, but makes a cute edge. But guess what Stampin Up is coming out with a scallop border punch woohoo. I can't wait it will out in the new catalog. Yeah.
So this card I pulled out of my card front swaps that I have stored a way. This card was created by Barbara Welch. I got this card from a convention swap. This set is Unfrogetble and will be retiring this year. The part I like the best is the little googlie eyes on the frog.
This is what I did with the create decor elements excuse the mess in the background, thats my messy kitchen. My stamp room is supposed to be a dining room, but in the last 4 years that we have lived in this house it has always been my stamp room.
It's been a while and I'm sorry. I've been spending a lot of time outside since our summers are short and our winters are so long. I havev't been ding a lot of stamping either. Shhh, I know something must be wrong with me. lol. The retirement lis is out and the new catalog will be out next month. Thant is some thing to be excited about.
This is me hard at work sitting at Lake Champlain reading a Stampers Sucess. It is a puplication put out by Stampin Up for demonstators. It comes out once a month and it is something I look forward too receiving in the mail.
