I am loving the images in the NEW Work of Art Stamp Set. And I thought they would be perfect stamped using the Baby Wipe Stamping Technique.
The zig zag or chevron image looks great stamped with this tri-color technique.
I was surprised to find that many of my club members had never tried baby wipe stamping. Have you? I thought I would create a video tutorial in case you want to learn!
Here it is - Baby Wipe Stamping. Be sure to watch until the end for two different techniques!
Thanks so much for watching. Let me know what you think!!
Off all the creative projects we were able to make at Stampin' Up! Convention 2014 - this Kinda Eclectic card set was MY FAVORITE!!

This beautiful card was created by Sheila Barthel of MT. Love the ombre blues and the clean look. Thank you Sheila!!
Lisa Shepherd of WA gave me this beautiful card. Love the soft colors and the grid background. Thank you Lisa!
This super cute dog bone box was created by my upline, Carol Bartle. How cute is that?!
Carol even created her own patterned paper using the Hot Diggity Dog stamp set. Let's see if I can keep this project away from my dog Mindy. Thanks so much Carol!

My project is clean and simple - my favorite. I grabbed two of our new In Colors - Blackberry Bliss and Mossy Meadow I simply love them together.
Simple details are added to this card - stamped and textured border strips.
A bit of corner rounding and a Basic Metal Button tied with Linen Thread add a bit of fun. The greeting comes from the Bloom With Hope host set.

My favorite NEW stamp set in the 2014-2015 Catalog is the Flower Patch stamp set!! Love these flowers! Plus, you can choose to purchase it in a bundle with the coordinating Flower Flair Framelits!!! Love it!!

Want to see more fun projects with this stamp set? Check out this video from Stampin' Up!:
Yep, this product bundle is my favorite! What's your favorite new product from the 2014-2015 Catalog?
Dry Embossed Texture if fabulous in and of itself - but add some color on top... and BAM - you're at a whole new level! Combined the Zig Zag Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and the Big News stamp set for this fun Friday card.
Simply run your card stock through your embossing folder and then color the raised texture with ink (via sponges or brayer) or color with Stampin' Write Markers or Blendabilities. I brayered on the ink for my three panels. The colors are Old Olive, Calypso Coral and Daffodil Delight.
Grab your Embossing Folders and get coloring! Need some new Textured Impressions Embossing Folders? There are some on our Clearance Rack along with a ton of newly added product!!
Happy Clearance Rack Shopping!!
Linking to three challenges:
Nemo makes everyone happy right? When I saw that a friend was having a Nemo themed 1st birthday party for her son, I knew I wanted to create a Nemo themed card. And Punch Art is perfect when you want to create something for which you do not have a stamp image!
The layout for this card was inspired by a card by Niki Toll. The wave crests are created with a 1 1/4" Circle Punch and the water texture is created using the Woodgrain Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. The edges of the waves are sponged with their respective colors.
I saw a few versions of a Punch Art Nemo and I combined them for my own take. The punches are the Large Oval (for his body), Modern Label (cut in half for fins), 1/2" Circle for the whites of his eyes and the Owl Builder Punch for his pupils. His tail fin is created using the small heart from the Hearts a Flutter Framelits. I used the Chalk Marker, the Project Life Journaling Pen and a Pumpkin Pie Stampin' Write Marker to add his details.
The Small Oval Punch holds the greeting. Nemo, the greeting and the sunshine all are popped with Stampin' Dimensionals.
The inside holds the greeting from the Big News stamp set inside a few bubbles created with circle punches and Circles Framelits.
I hope you like him!
Want to see another card I created this weekend for a friend?
Pop over to the Jill Stamps Facebook Page and check it out! I would love it if you "liked" my page and shared it with your friends while you are there. Word has it there will be a Facebook Fan Giveaway soon....

The Stamp Review Crew is back and we are bringing you SUMMER!! The Summer Silhouettes stamp set - an entire blog hop full of creative inspiration using the Summer Silhouettes stamp set brought to you by the Stamp Review Crew.
You have got to love the clean silhouette images of this stamp set.
You may have arrived from Nancy Smith's blog or I may be your first stop on the hop. Either way, just click the "next blog" button at the end of this post and you will get hopping and see all the wonderful projects.
Often when we think of silhouettes, we think black. But, I went the opposite direction this time.
I used the Emboss Resist technique to highlight the leaf silhouette image which created a white silhouette.
Emboss Resist Details:
The "Thinking of You" Greeting and border image are also Heat Embossed. The bottom Whisper White panel has dry embossed texture using the Modern Mosaic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. A Vintage Faceted Button and Baker's Twine set off the sentiment.
A bight, "summery" card featuring WHITE silhouettes. What do you think? I hope you like.
Your next stop on the Stamp Review Crew: Summer Silhouettes Blog Hop is Holly Krautkremer's blog. Enjoy!
Happy Independence Day to You!
Tomorrow, America celebreates it's birthday and nothing says America more than our beautiful flag. I used the Work of Art stamp set to create this fun flag.
Work of Art Flag Details:
Happy Birthday America!
Have a wonderful holiday weekend if you live in the U.S.!
Have a wonderful weekend in whatever country you call home!
