Forever Shimmers

Did you ever try to look ahead into your future, trying to visualize, imagine, or conceptualize 'if' and 'who' you would marry some day?  Alas, we are not granted the actual vision or knowledge, but imagining and romanticizing that possibility is the topic of many a young girl's dreams for sure.   

I can tell you right now ... the Bloomin' Hearts Thinlits are for much more than just Valentines.  I'll be using it year-round ... and here's why:


    
I've had a long love affair with stamping by now ... and honestly ... this will be the wedding card I give in the foreseeable future ... maybe even all of my future.   Over the years I've given wedding creations that I really liked, and a couple that I didn't really like at all, but it was "time to leave".  


If you've never used Stampin' Up!'s Shimmery White card stock ... why not?   I've adjusted the lighting here a bit to show the fascinating beauty of this specialty card stock.  When you seek to create elegance, this is an option worthy of consideration indeed.

As you can see, the Bloomin' Hearts Thinlits dies includes 2 blossom dies that match the blossom stamps from the Bloomin' Love stamp set.  Here, I've layered the die cut blossoms atop the Bloomin' Hearts cut out and added tiny Pearl Basic Jewels with our Fine-Tip Glue Pen.

This beautifully written sentiment is found in the Suite Sayings stamp set from page 41 of the Occasions catalog.  This set really has some lovely messages within.  You'll want to be sure to check it out.  

Not only is this a terrific time to gather new lovelies for your stamping table and get free goodies from Sale-A-Bration ... but it's also a most exciting time for all of you who would like to purchase the starter kit for your own discount shopping pleasure.  Check out the possibilities right here, and feel welcome to contact me with any questions at any time.

Favorite Colors?

Now that everyone has settled in with their lovely new cattys-in-hand, let's get back into some new stampin' fun!

The Creative Crew was challenged with:  CCREW0614DF DSP/Color Focus: Show us your favorite color. Try it in a color combo you haven't used before!  Psssssst! Check out the CCREW gallery for lots of inspiration!


Color challenges can be lots of fun ... especially when you have to 'stretch' a little to make your natural choices blend in with the guidelines!  If you haven't given one a try, then this one would be a perfect start!

I've always been a pinks, purply and some greens kinda girl.   So when I first heard just the 'name' of the new In Color, 'Blackberry Bliss' ..... I already knew that it was for me.  A 'done deal' for sure.  Then I 'saw' it IRL (in real life) and practically squealed out loud!


Oh yes ... back to the challenge:

Yep!  My starting point was with a brand new awesome sheet of Blackberry Bliss C/S in hand.  Then I browsed through my hanging files of all other SU cardstocks, repeatedly picking one up then putting it back, until it was right in front of me .... Soft Sky!  I loved it at first sight.

My large scalloped border die was still on my table, and I wondered if I could work that into the card ... and it wasn't long before I could see it all in my mind and simply had to finish it up!  One bitty rhinestone dots the 'i' in 'friend' for a bit of glam to add to the wonderful sheen and subtle sparkle of the Shimmery White cardstock.  

I hope you like it!
