Inlaid Butterfly Embossing

This technique is so HOT right now.....inlaid embossing!!!!!  It gives card making a whole new perspective and the cards turn out absolutely GORGEOUS!!!!  I really wanted to work on my watercoloring technique so I took the flowers from the Growing Garden stamp set and stamped them on whisper white CS in black stazon ink.  I then colored in the flowers with watercolor pencils and watercolored them with my blending pen. I love experimenting with the watercolor pencils.  I then cut the flowers out and glued them onto a piece of Sunny Garden DSP and ran it through the big shot using the square lattice embossing folder.  I LOVE THESE FOLDERS!!!!!!  If you are looking at buying a big shot, which is so worth the price, I suggest you get the embossing folders first.  There is so much you can do with them.  The crumb cake CS was embossed with the framed tulips embossing folder.  The stamped frame is from the new stamp set four frames which is being introduced in the new idea book and catalog......if you would like to have it now, SU! is this stamp set and the new paisley prints DSP when you order $20 worth of product.

Digital Studio Fun

Since Stampin' Up! came out with My Digital Studio I have tried to make an effort to familiarize myself with all that it has to offer.  If you have not heard about MDS click onto my SU! website to see what it has to offer.  I love that on Tuesdays new downloads are available to purchase.  The downloads vary between $3-$5 each and you have the whole catalog on your computer. 

In November, my family took a trip on a shrimp boat.  All the cousins loved to see what the nets were going to catch and to do it at sunset was icing on the cake.  I'm working on a project right now and this is one of the pages.  I love creating and learning what MDS has to offer....check in daily as I continue to create the project.
