Watercolor Wings Birthday

Just when you thought the butterfly stamp sets can't get any cuter and you have them all Stampin' Up! comes up with another MUST HAVE. The new Watercolor Wings set comes with coordinating dies and makes it really easy to design professional looking cards. And you can never have enough butterflies, right?

This is another one of the many cards that I made for Lydia's challenge over at Splitcoaststampers.com.

Winter Woodland

Finally! .....  The wait is over, at least if you are a demonstrator. Stampin' Up! revealed the new Holiday catalog at convention in July to demonstrators so we can get our preorders going, start playing and prepare for the season. I know the suspense when you have to wait to see all the new fun product can be unbearable. So if you don't want to wait anymore contact me today and join as a demonstrator.

Until then you might be interested in a sneak peak??????? I am also a member of the Splitcoaststampers Fanclub. They are hosting a fun week of challenges for the Fan Club members each year. May card today was for Lydia's challenge. I like those challenges. Oftentimes I have to push myself way out of my comfort zone but it is so much fun. If you are interested hop over and check it out.

Without further ado here is my card. Thanks for stopping by today.

Edit: I have received so many questions about how I made the card that I quick wanted to post some instructions. I used an Early Espresso marker to ink the dark areas on the embossing folder and ran it through the Bigshot. Then I took a sponge dauber to ink the raised tree trunks with Whisper White craft ink. For the snow in the trees I applied glue with the new fine tip glue pen and sprinkled Dazzling Diamonds over it. The little bird is from the Sprinkles of Life stamp set. I took my marker and added a little triangle on the head and some tail feathers and voila it looks like a Red Cardinal. Hope that helps.
