Watercolor Backgrounds with Stampin' Up! Candy Canes and Knit Together

Happy Friday! Today, I'm thrilled to be sharing not one, but TWO cards with you! You may remember my post from last Friday, when I shared the beautiful Festive Foliage watercolor background card. On today's cards, I used the same technique with two different backgrounds! Let's take a look:

Below, you can see a project I made using some leftover pieces of the box and at the end of this post, you can view a list of others who are sharing ideas too!

WOW Card Using Stampin' Up! Frosted Gingerbread Bundle

Happy Wednesday! During our team meeting last week, we did a Mystery Card and my upline Sue Kremer shared the measurements for a WOW Card (she saw this from demo Susan Campfield). Today, I wanted to share the card I made during that meeting - keep in mind, I didn't know what I was making when I started (but I love how it turned out!!) 

Here's the outside:

Stampin' Up! Celebrate Sunflowers & In Your Words Sets

Happy Friday! Today, I'm excited to share a beautiful card made with the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set and the In Your Words Sale-a-Bration stamp set. In Your Words is a host set that can be earned for FREE with a $300 order.

I recently saw a post from fellow demonstrator BC Wright in which she used Sahara Sand to stamp the sunflowers and Cherry Cobbler Blends to color them in and I knew I wanted to try it out for myself. I absolutely love how it turned out! I also used the bullet point tip on my Merry Merlot Stampin' Write Marker to add some extra shading. The center of the flower was done with the Soft Suede and Cinnamon Cider Blends and the Early Espresso Stampin' Write Marker.

The sentiment comes from the In Your Words Sale-a-Bration stamp set. I heat embossed it with White Embossing Powder onto Bumblebee cardstock. I cut it out using one of the smaller dies from the Hippo & Friends die set (I love the frames in that set!!) I added in some Bumblebee Gingham Ribbon and the Square In Color embellishments. I love how "fall" this card feels!
