Are you kidding?  Bleach on a card?  Yes - regular household bleach creates the beautiful Vanilla color on the flowers on this card!   It's an easy technique that anyone can do!  I used the Avant Garden stamp set - one of the free items available during Sale-a-Bration (it's the best sale of the year and there are only a couple of weeks left!) 

Avant Garden, Bleach Technique, #avantgarden, #bleachtechnique, #stampinup, #stampinbj.com, #bjpeters, #hexagondynamicembossing, #birthdaycard, #rubberstampingtechniques, #handstampedcard, #papercraftingtechniquesEach color of cardstock that you try this on, turns out a little differently.  I can tell you that way back when, I tried on non Stampin' Up! cardstock - the results weren't as good.  To do this technique, you must have an outline image that is embossed.  Check out this video.

 

I hope you give this a try!   Share your bleaching technique ideas on my Facebook page for us all to be inspired from!

I Love the detail in the Lace Doilies from the Occasions catalog.  I can't tell you how many packages of them I have used since January!  I've wanted to showcase them on a card and I sure did it in a big way!  You have to check out all the details of this peek through card!

I used the Succulent Garden stamp set to stamp the inside of the card and give it a greeting perfect for upcoming weddings!  The Wisteria Wonder color really highlights the beauty of the lace doilies too!  Oh my, this one is gorgeous!

Stamping to Reveal the "Celebration"

  Happy Celebrations, Celebrations Duo, #stampinup, #stampinbj.com, #birthdaycard, #celebrationsduoembossing, #happycelebrations, #bjpeters, #papercrafting, #stampinupdemo, #rubberstamping

Do you love the trendy diagonal look?  Do you wonder how to make it?  Let me show you how easy it can be!   Plus I want to show you how you can combine products - even different colors to make a card like this happen!  

The unique Celebrations Duo embossing (actually debossing) folders are the focal point of this card.  The folders actually push the word in.  I used the coordinating Happy Celebrations stamp set in Flirty Flamingo and Pool Party ink to make the word stand out.  

Happy Celebrations, Celebrations Duo, #stampinup, #stampinbj.com, #birthdaycard, #celebrationsduoembossing, #happycelebrations, #bjpeters, #papercrafting, #stampinupdemo, #rubberstamping

The Balloon Bouquet punch coordinates perfectly with the Balloon Pop-Up thinlits and certainly coordinates to make this cutie patootie balloon!

Happy Celebrations, Celebrations Duo, #stampinup, #stampinbj.com, #birthdaycard, #celebrationsduoembossing, #happycelebrations, #bjpeters, #papercrafting, #stampinupdemo, #rubberstamping

The designer series paper comes from the Tasty Treats designer series paper - it doesn't include the Flirty Flamingo color - but check how nice this works together!  In fact, it doesn't include Bermuda Bay either but the strip of Bermuda Bay glimmer paper goes perfectly!!!  Love how everything coordinates!

Here's another awesome looking card using the Window Box thinlits combined with the Love Sparkles stamp set.  This card was inspired by my demo friend Connie.  (Stampin' Up! demos are like a big family - love that!)  

I used the Window Box thinlits to create the heart circles.  I also used this technique on several of the projects in the Window Shopping class - be sure and check out that class, the responses from my customers on this class has been awesome!

Stylish Stems

Special Reason, Stylish Stems, #specialreason, #sylishstems, #stampinup, #bjpeters, #stampinbj.com, #birthdaycard, #occasionscatalog, #handstampedcard, #rubberstampingThis card catches my eye - and well the bundle it was created from caught my eye in the Occasions Catalog.  Special Reason is the name of the stamp set and the framelits are called Stylish Stems, together they make the bundle.    These framelits are unique and as you will see, different than framelits we have had in the past.  I know that I am going to enjoy them very much!  You have to take a look and not just pass this off as another floral bundle!

Special Reason, Stylish Stems, #specialreason, #sylishstems, #stampinup, #bjpeters, #stampinbj.com, #birthdaycard, #occasionscatalog, #handstampedcard, #rubberstampingCheck out this close-up of how I have used one of the framelits to create a window type look.  I added a piece of the Cupcakes & Carousels designer series paper behind the window.   Love the contrast with the Calypso Coral cardbase. 

 

 Check out this video for other cool ideas for this bundle!   Now can you see why it is not just another floral bundle?

I'm sooo excited!

Beautiful You, Watercolor Pencils, Stampin' Up!, BJ Peters, #beautifulyou, #watercolorpencils, #stampinup, #bjpeters, #staminbj.com, #handstampedcard, #watercoloring, #succulentgardenWell, I may have been holding out a bit on an exciting new addition coming to your crafting repertoire!  WATERCOLOR PENCILS!   And in Stampin' Up! colors!  Yes 13 of them!  And I need to share something else - they blend like soft butter!!!  I was amazed at how well they blend.  And that is coming from when we had watercolor pencils before - I didn't like the way they blended at all!

This card is another sneak peek using the Beautiful You stamp set.  My team used the watercolor pencils to see how well they blended last Sunday at our meeting.  They loved them as well!  And of course I can't wait for you to get your eyes on the Beautiful You stamp set.  It reminds me of a past favorite; "By the Seashore" - remember that one?   This one has fabulous greetings!   Oh, and in case you are wondering, the designer series paper is new too.  It is Succulent Garden designer series paper. 

 

I can't wait for you to get your 2017 Occasions and Sale-a-Bration catalogs!   If you have ordered from me in the past year, I am treating you to a these catalogs mailed directly to you!  Watch your mail as they should be arriving in the next week or so!  Meanwhile, don't forget about the Year End Close Out sale!

Christmas Pines, Pretty Pines, cable knit, BJ Peters, Stampin' Up!, #christmaspines, #prettypines, #cableknit, #christmascard, #bjpeters, #stampinup, #stampinbj.comHere I have added pine branches from the Pretty Pines Thinlits.  The greeting comes from the Christmas Pines stamp set.  The Christmas Pines stamp set and the Pretty Pines Thinlits come as a bundle for a savings.  For the greeting, I inked the stamp in Real Red and then pulled the ink of of the 2 squirrley pieces with a cotton swab.  Then I inked the squirrley pieces with a Garden Green Stampin' Write marker.  The layering ovals framelits finish off the greeting with the scalloped oval being from Gold Foil paper.
