Stampin’ Up! Beautiful You for the Happy Stampers

Happy Stampers Blog Hop

Welcome to this Thursday edition of the Happy Stampers Blog Hop.  I am sharing a sneak peek of Beautiful You, from the upcoming 2017 Occasions Catalog from Stampin’ Up, available on January 4th.  

 

Beautiful You

 

And, if you follow the Happy Stampers, you know this week is a color challenge:

 

Happy Stampers Blog Hop color challenge

 

I fell in love with Beautiful You the minute I saw it at OnStage Atlanta in November!  Is is such a cool set of stamps.  I know you will love it, too.  By now, you have probably seen it out on Pinterest, but I know you will see more of it very soon.  You can use water coloring, as I did, or Stampin’ write Markers, or the new Watercolor Pencils available January 4th, to color in your images.  I have seen some cards, though, with just the outline of the woman stamped that are just as beautiful as the colored in ones.  

 

Beautiful You

I stamped the image in Stazon Black ink onto Water Color paper.  Once dry, I used my Dapper Denim and Aqua Painter to color the skirt and dress.  Next, I  water colored the hat with Emerald Envy. I left a little “shadow” of both colors to the left of the dress and hat, then colored a little on the ground with Emerald Envy.

 

Beautiful You

 

The Beautiful You sentiment was stamped onto a panel of watercolor paper in Stazon Black ink.  I then water colored with Emerald Envy over the larger words.  Once it was dry, I used an oval Stitched Shapes Framelit Die to cut it out. The ribbon is 3/8″ Emerald Envy Silky Taffeta from the combo pack, on sale now for $4.50!  

 

Beautiful You

I used another of the sentiments from Beautiful You and stamped it also in Stazon Black ink.  I added a little water color wash over it using some of the Emerald Envy and Dapper Denim inks again.  

Card stock cuts in inches and products used are at the end of the post.

Stampin’ Up! Lift Me Up Peek, Take Two

Yesterday I posted one of the cards we made at our quarterly team meeting.  Here is the second one from Lift Me Up. It is a fun one, also!  

 

Lift Me

 

The Carried Away Designer Series Paper is a free item from the Sale-a-Bration catalog, and it coordinates with the Lift Me Up Bundle.  During Sale-a-Bration, for every $50 you spend before tax and shipping you can earn free items.  

We used some of the 1/8 ” Stitched Ribbon in Smoky Slate for the ribbon and bow for this card.  It can be found in the Annual Catalog.  

 

More hot air balloons and clouds were stamped on the inside.

I decorated the envelope, too.

 

Lift Me

 

So, have I convinced you to add the Lift Me Up Bundle to your list of must haves from the new catalog?
