Now on with today’s tutorial. . . . .  . .

Project Supplies:

Stamps: Stampin’ Up! Road to Happiness (item #126547), Wedding Words Wheel (item#125433)

Card Stock: Stampin’ Up! Whisper White, Soft Sky, Sahara Sand and Basic Gray.  Also, Designer Series Paper from the Stampin’ Up! Patterns Stack – Neutrals

Ink: Stampin’ Up! Basic Gray, Soft Sky, Sahara Sand and Stazon Jet Black

Accessories: Stampin’ Up!  Sponge, sponge dauber, Silver brads, silver gel pen, Stampin’ write makers (Basic Black and Blush Blossom), Bone Folder, Post it note, Framelits (Ovals collection and Floral Frames), Heart Punch, Boho Blossoms Punch, Heat Gun

Stamped the car using Stazon On Jet Black ink on Whisper White card stock.

Added the Bride and Groom using Stazon Jet Black ink.

Stamped the tin cans using Stazon Jet Black ink.

Die cut the scene using the Ovals Collection framelits.

Die cut an a Sahara Sand oval using the next largest oval from the Oval Collection Framelit.

Masked the car with a post it note leaving just a bit of the wheels showing and sponged in Basic Gray ink.

Removed the mask and sponged in Soft Sky ink at the top of the card.


Colored the wheels and tin can using a Silver Stampin’ Dazzle marker.

Colored the skin with a Blush Blossom marker.

Put the post it note mask on again and added more Basic Gray ink using the sponge just under the car to create a shadow.

Colored in the wheels of the car to darken with a Basic Black marker.

Cut a 4.75″ x 6.25″ piece of Soft Sky card stock and used the Wedding Words wheel and Sahara sand ink 3 times across the card stock.


Distress the edges of the main image panel, Sahara Sand panel and the Soft Sky panel using Basic Gray ink.  I just scraped the edges of the card stock across the stamp pad.

Added a 5″ x 6.5″ Sahara Sand Panel, (2) 1.5″ x 4.25″ pieces of DSP,( 2) 1.75″ x 4.5″ pieces of Basic Gray card stock.

Punched 6 of each of these flowers using the Big Shot machine and the Flower Frames Framelits out of Whisper White card stock.

Punched 3 Flowers out of Sahara Sand card stock using the Boho Blossoms Punch.


Divided up the Whisper white flowers in half.  Wet one half of the flowers and crumpled them up.  Un crumbled them and heat them with the heat tool.  This makes the flowers very stiff.



Used the bone folder on the other half of the flowers to break the fibers of the card stock and put a curl in the petals.




Assembled the flowers alternating the crumbled ones with the ones that I used the bone folder on.  Added a Sahara Sand punch in the middle.  The layers were put together using the mini glue dots.

Added a Silver Brad to the center and then fluffed up the flowers.

Added my 3 flowers to the card and also added (2) Basic Gray heart punches.

Added a 6.5″ x 10″ Whisper White card base folded in half.

Here is the finished card measuring 5″ x 6.5″.

May your day be filled with happiness.

Until my next post. . . . . .

Huge Hugs!

Stampin’ Up’s Color Refresh! I love color and I know that you do too. Color is fundamental to who Stampin’ Up! is and what they offer. It’s important for us to stay up-to-date with color trends so I am thrilled to share Stampin’ Up’s updated line of colors, and hope you will be as excited as I am by the new possibilities!

Why now? In 2010 Stampin’ Up! did a big color renovation and shared their plans for smaller color refreshes every three to five years to keep their colors on trend. Well it has been three years and I am excited to announce that the upcoming 2013-2014 annual catalog will include 10 new colors (most of which are returning In Colors from previous years)! Stampin’ Up! is welcoming back some of your favorites, moving some colors around, and introducing one brand-new color, so take a look!

Beginning on April 4, 2013, all retiring/discontinued color products (i.e. ink, paper, ribbon, accessories, etc.) will be available only while supplies last. This means that some products will not be available through the retired list period. Stampin’ Up! did anticipate increased demand and based their forecasts for these retiring colors on historical sales information from previous color transitions. However, even with the most careful planning, the response to a transition of this nature can surprise everyone–including your own personal purchases. We encourage you to get your favorites and look forward to the exciting colors coming in the 2013-2014 annual catalog.
