Stampin' Addicts Occcasions 2014 Catalog Blog Hop Happy Watercolor



Welcome to the Stampin' Addicts 2014 Occasions Catalog Blog Hop.  I hope you enjoy our creations  as we focus on several new spring possibilities from Stampin' Up!.

If you're traveling in order, you've arrived from Deb's Heartfelt Inkspiration blog where she showed off the Life in the Forest set.  I loved the sweet animals and especially her out of the box fox peekaboo window card.  If you should happened get lost or want to chat, just visit the chat thread on Stampin' Addicts.

First, I have this Blue Larkspur card. The card sketch is based on MOJO326, and I used the chalk marker in the center of each flower and outlined each in Midnight Muse.  Then, I filled it with Pacific Point using a blender pen.  The Midnight Muse and Pacific Point layers were adhered together and then run through the Big Shot with the Beautifully Baroque embossing folder.  The Pacific Point Circle was embossed with the Fancy Fan folder.

Next is this little notebook...pssst.....don't forget!  Just simple and quick for those reminders, notes and sketches. It was all stamped on Whisper white, and I was attempting a sketchy look trailing the red dots in a fade to the upper right hand corner.

For this card, I used SASC18....a Stampin' Addicts Sketch Challenge from a while back. I added the new Scalloped Tag Topper Punch for the image layer with the scalloped embossing folder for the lower background layer. Dazzling Details Glitter Glue on the center of the poppy give it a little whimsy. I also stamped the watercolor splotch on the sentiment for something different. This poppy is different cut outs layered on top of each other. (See the picture below)



Thank you for stopping by to see the Happy Watercolor set!  Now, it is time to venture on to Sara's Lily's Ink Pad blog to see the Love You to the Moon set. Her sampler frame is so cute! I love all the details!
