Painted Harvest Holiday Catalog Preview

My second upline Rachel Tessman does monthly gathering with her group of demonstrators either in person or on Facebook (since not everyone lives near).  You have no idea how much fun they are and she always sends a make & take.  This one is featuring the new Painted Harvest stamp set and Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper.

Atlantic Hearts Sketch with Butterfly Basics

J. Pollock Designs - Stampin' Up! - Butterfly Basics, Whole Lot of Lovely

I’m playing along with the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge today.  I stamped the flowers using Staz-on then colored them with the Calypso Coral and Old Olive watercolor pencils then I blended using the blender pens.  I also used an Aqua Painter and some watery Soft Sky ink to go around the image to soften it.  I attached the water color paper to a piece of Calypso Coral, wrapped the baker’s twine around it and then used dimensionals to add it to the card.

Shoebox Swap

I’m going to do this week’s posts the reverse of the other weeks because my swap card will be shared on a different blog on Thursday.  I’ll have a post up then to link to it.

These are the beautiful cards I got from my shoebox swap.  Most of them I got to make myself while socializing with other Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators.  I just love getting together with crafty friends.

New Catalog Accessories Card Swaps

Here are the cards I got in return for my Berry Burst Glossy Cardstock Card.

This one was my favorite!  Karen is always showing us new tricks and this is no exception.  She used four colors of re-inkers and wadded up plastic wrap to create a one of a kind background. Each re-inker has it’s own plastic wrap wad and you simply stamp on the Shimmery White Cardstock with it to create a watercolor look background.  It’s much prettier in person, I need to work on my photography.  🙂

Here is another one using the new embossing paste that I simply must have soon.

Here are a couple of fun folds:

Berry Burst on Glossy Cardstock Swap Card

Here is my second swap card from my Saturday swap.  For this one we needed to highlight a new accessory from the catalog.  I really wanted to do something with the Glossy Cardstock and when I saw this post, I had to try it.  Let me say, you WILL get inky doing this.  (You may notice that those Wood Texture circles are recycled from the card in my last post.  Waste not, want not.)  On Thursday I’ll post the cards I got in return.
