We'll Walrus Be Friends!

This adorable set in the Stampin' Up! 2019-20 Annual Catalog made my A list!  I couldn't wait to color in a cute walrus with my Stampin' Blends.  I went up to my paper therapy room with the idea of making one customer thank you card.  I finally quit after making five cards with these cute little guys.

On most of my cards, I put a piece of vellum through the High Seas 3D Embossing Folder and inked it up a bit with a dauber and Coastal Cabana ink.  Then I adhered with Snail on Smoky Slate cardstock.  I think it looks a bit like the darker blue water in New England.  What do you think?

I also used a fun new product called Shimmery Crystal Effects.  It gives a shimmery wet look to your projects.  I don't know if you can see it under the waves in the photo.  You can also use this with the new Ice Stampin' Glitter.  Such a pretty effect!

Thanks for stopping by.  Please let me know which one you like best!

p.s.  The walrus looks like me on vacation.  Can you guess where I am?

Run, run, run!!

Heads up!  Stampin' Up! has added to the clearance rack and products will be flying off the shelves!  Go and check it out before it's too late!!  Just click on the graphic.  You're welcome!  

Sip, Sip, Hooray!

Hello everyone!  I just had to share this amazing bundle from the Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog!  I knew I had to have it as soon as I saw it.  I've had so much fun playing with the pieces.  I've been dreaming of my upcoming tropical vacation .  I cannot wait!

For the first, I used Flirty Flamingo as a base, a Pool Party panel, and a whisper white panel which I die cut with the strip of dots.   The sentiment is from Itty Bitty Birthday and embellished with Woven Threads sequins.  

For this card, I used Coastal Cabana as a base with a panel of Daffodil Delight, and a strip of Brights dsp.  The Stitched Nested Label Dies were used.  I truly love the shape of them.  I kept it simple and embellished with Rhinestones.  Notice under the glass - I always feel like you need a bit of grounding so I used Light Smoky Slate Blends to just add a bit of color.  Sometimes I fade it with the Color Lifter.  Let me know if you have questions, or if you'd like a catalog. 

If you don't have a demonstrator and you'd like an annual or holiday catalog, please message me.  I'd love to send you one. If you place an order with me in September of $50 or more and use the host code of  DPTHUTJK, I will send you a package of embellishments!
