Spectacular Stampin’ Saturday

Welcome to Spectacular Stampin’ Saturday!!!! Every week there will be a new card posted showing a new technique or a new product from the 2016-2017 Stampin Up and the Spring Occasions catalogs. These cards are super fun and you can learn how to make them and many others in one of the many classes offered!!!

Today’s cards are made with the INSIDE THE LINES Designer Series Paper you can get for free during Sale-A-Bration. I usually don’t buy a lot of DSP, but I just love this paper!! Not only is it FREE, but it is SOOO versatile. I made 3 cards, and created a Mini Coloring Book out of this beautiful paper.



On this first card I used the NEW Watercolor Pencils with a Blender Pen. The paper colors are Rich Razzleberry Mint Maccaroon. I used the Jar of Love stamp set for the sentiment.  I created a bit of shimmer with Wink of Stella (it’s on the bee’s wings & sentiment)….I just love the subtle bit of glitter…and added a few Pearls Basic Jewels to finish off the card.


This second card is using a fun technique…it is a Magic Card! This card has a great WOW factor that also super fun to do! When I showed the card to my 9 year old step-son his eyes were as big as dinner plates!! The cardstock is Whisper White & Watermelon Wonder. I just love this color! The stamp set is NEW Beautiful You found on page 24 of the Spring Occasions Catalog. The Layering Ovals Framelits, Word Window Punch (retired) & Window Sheets are the tools used to create this card.



The third card is also using the NEW Watercolor Pencils with an Aqua Painter to create the beautiful shading. The effect is similar to the first card, but a different tool still give a different look. Wink of Stella (clear) is on the bee’s wings & Wink of Stella (gold) is on the flower stamens.  The best projects start with the best colors…and the 2016-2018 In-Color of Peekaboo Peach  fits the bill.



And finally the Mini Coloring Book!!! It had a hard front & back cover.  I used the thin cardboard that came in previous packages of Designer Series Paper. I knew I was saving these pieces of cardboard for something & this wad the perfect project!!!
