Annual Catalog Sneak Peeks – Stampin’ UP! Trip Achievers Blog Hop

Welcome to the monthly Stampin’ UP! trip achievers blog hop.  I am so happy you are here.

If you’ve just come from someone else’s blog and never been here, welcome.  If you are one of my regulars… welcome back.

Today I have a treat for you.  I spent several hours making these cards, mostly because I had to keep pausing for interruptions while crafting.  I am sure none of you know what that’s like.  Right?

These cards feature the new Crafting Forever stamp set.  Which happens to be one of my favorite sets in the new annual catalog.

I used the awesome Stampin’ UP! watercolor pencils to do all of my coloring.  Stamping in Staz On Ink and coloring the images was the first step.

The next step was to have patience and let all my stuff dry.

For the chalkboard and table in the card above I just drew in lines using a ruler and then watercolored them.  Once the chalkboard was really dry I was able to stamp in versa mark ink and heat emboss.

You might be thinking how did I get all the cups holding the brushes to look so fun and different.

After they were dry I just used the Signo Uniball White Gel Pen to draw patterns on them. So fun.

    Awesome cards Wendy. I’m waiting for my order to get here. Now I know the first stamp set I want to play with. At first I was a little bummed that we didn’t have a set of dies for this one. Now, I’m glad we don’t. With too many dies or punches, ( not that we don’t love and use them all), we forget to enjoy the [pleasure of fussy cutting. Yes, it can be enjoyable. Tedious sometimes, but still enjoyable. You can just let your mind free and follow the stamped lines.
