Pop Of Pink Wiper Card

Hello!  I don't know about you, but I just love the Pop of Pink Specialty Designer Series Paper (catalog number 141648, $13.00) in the new Stampin' Up! Catalog.  The color scheme of Melon Mambo, Basic Black, and Whisper White gives you such a clean, crisp look that I love!

I created this fun wiper card this week.  What do you think?


Here is a close-up of the front of the card:

I used the brand-new Sweet Cupcake Photopolymer Bundle.  The framelits make cutting out these images a snap!

Catalog number 142232, $43.00

I love the sparkle that our Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Brush pen gives the cupcake.  I was able to get 3 different shades of Melon Mambo by stamping off the solid image twice before stamping on the card.  I stamped the first detailed image off once before stamping on the card.  And then, I stamped the final detail image in full-strength Melon Mambo.  I think the Wink of Stella looks like clear sanding sugar, don't you?

I planned this project for a stamping party this weekend.  
Unfortunately, I developed pink eye (I promise it was NOT from the Pop of Pink Designer Series Paper -- LOL!).  So, I had to postpone this event, but I cannot wait to teach this project!

I hope you enjoyed this card.  Have a wonderful Sunday!

Happy Stamping,

Who Doesn't Love NEW Stamps? RemARKable Stampers Blog Tour

Happy June!  The new 2016-2017 Stampin' Up! Catalog just launched last week, and demonstrators around the world are having fun creating with new stamps.  

Email me at for a catalog!

Let me tell you, there are SO many new stamp sets, framelits, punches, embellishments, paper, ink and tools!  But, the one bundle that caught my attention is the Jar Of Love bundle. It is even featured on the catalog cover!   

Jar of Love Stamp Set + Everyday Jars Framelits Dies
Catalog #142342     $52.00
I knew this set would make so many fun cards, and I used it for one of my Stamp Club projects today.  We made a shaker card with the cute little fireflies (or "lightening bugs" as we call them in Baltimore).  What do you think?

This card is so cute, and really not hard to put together.   We used Daffodil Delight, Pool Party, and Basic Gray Archival ink.  Our new Foam Adhesive Strips make shaker cards a breeze!  The framelits made cutting everything a snap -- we cut the lid, the bow, and the inside of the jar out in one pass in the Big Shot machine. 

We colored the fireflies with a Daffodil Delight marker, and added a little sparkle to their wings with a Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Brush.  (It is hard to capture the sparkle with my cell phone camera, but maybe you can see a little bit below.)

One tip I can pass along to you is to lightly rub an embossing buddy along the inside edges of the Foam Adhesive Strips to eliminate the "sticky" so your fireflies do not stick to it.  One Foam Adhesive strip will be more than enough to go around the jar.  You even have about an inch leftover that you can use to pop up the Daffodil Delight bow in the front.  

Here is the inside of the card:

I hope you enjoyed this card!  Now, it is time to see what Melissa Bolinger has created this month.  Just click here to visit her blog.
