Aren’t these ladybugs adorable?  I love the ladybugs paired with this umbrella, and it is perfect to send to someone that helps you out. I did a little bit of masking with the ladybugs so it looks like one of the ladybugs is holding the umbrella. The Love You Lots set is one of the special hostess set. You can see more about hostess sets by clicking here.

Can you see the shimmer on the umbrella and ladybugs? I used my clear Wink Of Stella Marker (my favorite way to add shimmer) to go over the umbrella and ladybugs. The Wink Of Stella dries quickly and is easy to apply. The perfect way to embellish your projects with a bit of sparkle.

It is hard to believe that I am already stamping for Halloween! It’s another sneak peek today from the Holiday Catalog.  The Spooky Fun stamps and Halloween Scenes Edgelit Dies come together in a bundle and they are fabulous together.

Stampin' Up! Spooky Fun Holiday Catalog from www.mystamplady.com

I love the witch silhouette image and that can be cut out with a coordinating die. The Spooky Fun set also comes with an outline witch so you can color her in with ink. Doesn’t she look great in front of the moon colored with the Clear Wink Of Stella?

The “happy halloween” is stamped onto a piece of Very Vanilla card stock that I sponged with a bit of Pumpkin Pie ink. I will often sponge a piece of neutral card stock to get a colored piece of paper. I like sponging the card stock because you get some variation in color.

How about a sneak peek from the upcoming 2016 Holiday catalog? It doesn’t feel like I should be saying that already, but the Holiday catalog will be available on September 1st. I ordered several items from the Petals & Paisleys Suite. Today I am featuring the Paisleys & Posies bundle with a beautiful stamp set and coordinating framelits.  Watch the rubber stamping video tutorial below to see the step by step instructions for this card.

I couldn’t wait to use the gorgeous copper foil paper and the coordinating Petals & Paisleys patterned paper. Even though I chose a non-foiled paper, there are gorgeous papers with foil accents. I show the patterned paper at the beginning of the video.

I have a quick clean and simple card today. It has been a busy week with my oldest child going through orientation at college, the county fair coming, and soccer. I know my son is more than ready for college, but I am not sure that I am ready. This Jar Of Love card is very simple but has a subtle butterfly background that is difficult to see in the picture.

The cute fireflies have a bit of Clear Wink Of Stella to add a bit of shimmer to the glow. The fireflies are so much fun to use for different projects. Come back tomorrow for a sneak peek at new fall products.

Why would I color a piece of card stock with the sponge brayer and So Saffron ink? I decided to use the sponge brayer and ink to color a piece of Whisper White card stock even though I have the So Saffron card stock. I loved the way the sponged card stock is not inked evenly to give it depth and texture. It is perfect for these Sprinkles Of Life cupcakes.

The sponge brayer is also perfect also perfect for the emboss resist technique (click here to see examples of emboss resist), going over stencils and more. You can find the Sponge Brayers by clicking here to go to my online store.

Have you ever wondered about the Stampin’ Up! Hostess Sets? I don’t always buy the hostess sets, but the Pun Intended set caught my attention. I liked the vintage look and paired it with the A Little Foxy Designer Series Paper. I kept the lines of these cards simple and straight forward.

Stampin' Up! Hostess set Pun Intended on www.mystamplady.com

On the first card, I used the colorful side of one of the A Little Foxy DSP sheets and the camera image. Each of the main images has a couple of sentiments to coordinate. It is nice that there are multiple sayings so you can create for more occasions.

Stampin' Up! Hostess set Pun Intended on www.mystamplady.com

I used the gray side of the A Little Foxy DSP for my lightbulb card. I added color by painting the bulb Daffodil Delight with a Calypso Coral heart. The color makes the bulb pop out.

The host stamps are only available to purchase with Stampin’ Reward dollars. There are several host sets available. Click on the pictures below to see the stamp set larger.

What do you do with Washi Tape? The easiest way to use Washi Tape is to use it as tape to attach a piece of card stock or embellishment to your card front, but beyond that I am not always sure how to use the tape. Looking at the Party Pop-Up Thinlits, I was inspired to create this Pop Of Pink Washi Tape piece.  Watch the rubber stamping video tutorial below to see the step by step instructions for this card.

Washi Tape Tip With Party With Cake Gold Foil and Party Pop Ups from www.mystamplady.com

Place a piece of Gold Foil paper behind the die cut paper to highlight the cutout letters. The balloon has a bit of shimmer from the Clear Wink Of Stella marker, but it is hard to see in the picture.
