Count My Blessings

When the Stampin’ Up Holiday catalog first arrived, my heart did a little flip flop for the Count My Blessings stamp set.

The images are simply gorgeous. To make them easier to watercolor, I embossed them in gold. The gold was hard to capture on camera, but here you can see it better. Embossing also makes them easier to fussy cut.

To watercolor the acorn, I used ink squished into the lid of my stamp pad and an aqua painter. I also did a watercolor wash on the cardstock behind the fancy foil.

Our October Stamp of the Month Club members will receive the supplies to make this card along with three others.

Speaking of blessings at the top of my list, the Stamp of the Month Club continues to grow and I’m so thankful for all of our lovely members. Thank you all!

P.S.

My son continues to recover from autoimmune encephalitis at home. He has long bouts of being unable to swallow or talk, mixed with altered mental status and muscle tremors, which are very very hard, but today is a good day. He ate some eggs and has been talking. We also celebrate the fact that his symptoms are not severe enough to put him back in the hospital.

Last week, on one of his best days yet, he said to me, “I sure am happy to still be alive!”

To all who have supported us during this very severe, drawn out illness of his, thank you! Your kind words, prayers and support have truly been an anchor in the storm and I appreciate you so much!

More Fun With the Lift Me Up Bundle

Hi friends! How are you?

Recently, you may have seen the March Stamp of the Month Club cards I designed for our club members with the Lift Me Up Bundle by Stampin’ Up!.

As I was creating these cards, I decided to “go all out” and create a special birthday card for a friend. I had so much fun adding layers of ribbon and decorative paper. Here is a close up of the details:

My hubby pointed out that the frayed ribbon has the look of blowing in the wind- exactly the look I was going for!

Gorgeous (Free!) Glimmer

Hi friends! How are you today?

Here is one of the cards we made last night at a workshop. I just had to show off the gorgeous new Bermuda Bay glimmer paper. Just look at how it sparkles in the light!

This 6×6 glimmer paper comes in three gorges colors and is available free with a $50 purchase for just a little while longer. (While supplies last, so don’t miss out!)

Stampin’ Tip

1. The Lift Me Up Bundle comes with cute little clouds. You can add interest with a sponge dauber and your stamp pad. Just sponge a little color on the edges- so cute!

2. Pair the Cupcakes and Carousels 6×6 dsp with the Lift Me Up Bundle for really fun cards.

3. Want an easy trick for gluing intricate dies? Use a silicone mat! Put a dab of multipurpose glue on the mat. Place the die on the mat, upside-down. Use a sponge to pick up a little glue (not too much!) and sponge all over the back, being careful to not shift the die. Now you can glue it down. Use wet wipes to quickly clean your mat. Viola!

4. Want to step this card up? Add the layers of color to the hot air balloon, under the glimmer paper.
