Lovin' the Berry Bliss

Mixing Designer Series Papers from Stampin' Up! makes me happy. I am not alone saying "I want them all!" I have several packs and firmly practice what I preach in saying "use it or lose it." I use it on everything and refuse to just hoard it in my stamp room.

My favorite addition to this card is the hat pin and use of the crimp bead. The last touch to the card was dazzling diamonds glitter. I put it on just about every card I make. I do it because GLITTER MAKES EVERYTHING BETTER!

All supplies from Stampin' Up!
  • Stamps - Hi and Hello
  • Inks - Chocolate Chip Classic, Pretty in Pink Classic
  • Cardstocks - Whisper White, Pretty in Pink, Chocolate Chip

There is always a first for everything!

Seeing spots is a good thing especially when they are stamped ink spots! This is my very first post. I hope you enjoy and visit often to see to new spots of ink. 

This card's focal point technique is what I call two-step watercoloring. In person the card is super gorgeous.

Do you want to learn more about how I achieved the look of the focal point? After my Technique Time stamp class held Friday, March 14th I'll post the exact process for this two-step watercolor technique.
