Hello - to a little play time. . ..

Hello, Sale-a-Bration, Stampin' Up!, BJ PetersSo, I had a bonus hour. . . doesn't happen too often.  I thought I had to be somewhere at 1:00pm.  Before I left home, I checked - and it was 2:00pm. . . WOW!  A whole hour!   I didn't waste too much time.  I had a technique in my brain for a week or so and I thought it was meant to be.  

I love how it turned out.  I think I might just have to do a video on it.  To give you a little taste, I used reinkers dotted on a large acrylic block, Misted them with water from my stampin' mist.  I swirled just a bit with an aqua painter and then placed the cardstock on top. 

Hello, Stampin' UP!, BJ Peters, Metallic Doily, I love how it turned out!  I used Marina Mist, Wild Wasabi and a bit of Island Indigo.  The "Hello" from the soon goon Sale-a-Bration set is embossed in gold.  Love the accent of the Metallic Doily.  Of course I had to use the Curvy Corner trio punch too!  

Do what do you think of my "bonus" hour card & technique!

More Helping Me Grow

Helping Me Grow, STAMPIn' Up!, BJ PetersWhat a gorgeous card!   The "Helping Me Grow" stamp set has these beautiful larger flower images that cover the entire card.  The little additions of the Curvy Corner Trio punch and the accented greeting just adds the perfect finishing touch. 

Helping Me Grow, Stampin' Up!, BJ PetersI watercolored the flowers with Bermuda Bay, Pear Pizzazz and Crushed Curry ink using an aqua painter.  If you've been following my blog at all, the Curvy Corner trio punch has become a favorite way to accent - just look at how it accents the corner.  This stamp set also comes with the corner stamps - and they are the perfect compliment to the Curvy Corner Trio punch.

Helping Me Grow, Stampin' Up!, BJ PetersI was just talking with a customer today who stated how awesome it was that many of the stamp sets are coming with greetings that coordinate with the images so well.  For her it solves a problem called "space".  Have 1 stamp set vs many works well for her. 

I love how adding a little piece of gold glimmer paper, a part of a tea lace doily and a bow with the 1/8" Bermuda Bay trim adds just the right finishing touch.  Check out these products in the Occasions catalog.
