Art Journal Cover

Hi everyone! It’s Shari here for my final Art Journal of the year. Instead of doing another entry, I’ve put my pages together and have made a quick cover.

I couldn’t resist the Teresa Collins Nine & Co collection for my cover.  I love the colors and the ease of creating something pretty.

January 2015 Card Kit Reveal! Winter Wonderland is Here!

Jan-2015-Card-Kit

Hi everyone!!! We have a fantastic card kit to kick off the new year! Winter Wonderland is packed full of amazing color and gorgeous papers by Bo Bunny. This card kit also comes with a little sparkle in the Grape Fizz Perfect Pearls, a Ranger mini spray mister, a sheet of postage stamp stickers (*details below), a Ranger dusting brush, and a white Simon Says Stamp pigment ink pad.  The clear stamp set Hand Lettered Winter Wishes is the perfect glue to pull the pieces of the kit together.

I created a card using items from the kit. I went with a clean and simple look by embossing my greeting with Simon Says Stamp White embossing powder.

I used strips of the pattern paper to add color and to compliment my greeting.

I used the Perfect Pearls mixed with water to create a bit of splatter to the background. I put together a video of the kit walk through plus some instruction on my card. Enjoy!

Something to note:

100 randomly selected kits will include a January card kit bonus instead of the Bo Bunny Stamp Stickers.

Great news!  Due to popular request, in 2015 we will be adding even more fabulous products to the monthly kits.  Effective with this January 2015 card kit, card kit subscriptions are $24.95 plus shipping and handling each month.

Many of you have also asked to be able to add your subscription into your online shopping cart while being able to add other products to the order to save on shipping and handling costs.  This will also allow you to view the shipping information on your order.  More great news! We have spent a considerable amount of time developing the software which will allow us to do just that.  Look for this new feature to come as soon as our final testing stages are finished (we anticipate in approximately 60 days).

Color Coordinates Recipe Card!!

Good morning everyone!!! Happy Saturday! It’s Shari here with another Color Coordinates Recipe for you! I love using neutrals together with just a splash of color. The Simon Says Stamp 3 shades of greys are just perfect for this combination.

Recipe Color Coordinates 11.29.14 SC

I’ve created a card using this recipe where my splash is Schoolhouse Red! Love this for Christmas!  I used the new Stitched Circles to cut into my top panel, layered it over some Smoke card stock that I used the Falling Snow stencil with Texture paste.

I stamped my greeting on the panel. And them I white embossed the tree shape, die cut it and decorated with shades of white sequins.

To top it off, I die cut a couple hearts from Schoolhouse Red card stock and covered them with Glossy Accents. Viola!

I did shoot a video of the process, Hope you enjoy! You can view the video HERE.
