Happy crafting! This month’s theme is Celebrating Women.



I chose to use some of my Sale-A-Bration products because they haven’t gotten much love from me, yet, and they’re absolutely amazing! The A Touch of Ink stamp set and the Oh So Ombre 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper Stack are, easily, my favorite items this year and they pair so well together. My project features the Rococo Rose piece and I absolutely love it!

There is only 1 week left to earn these items FREE with a $50 or $100 qualifying order. Now is a great time to stock up on the basics (cardstock, envelopes, adhesives..) and get some awesome gifts from Stampin’ Up!



This stamp set is a combination of outline stamps and distinktive stamps for Two Step Stamping. Using my blending brush, I actually removed some of the ink on the butterfly “filler” stamp, which is a fun technique to share! You can see the lighter color towards the tips of the wings and it gets darker towards the body. For the flowers, I stamped off on my scratch paper first before stamping the filler to give it  a lighter shade of Rococo Rose and then used my blending brush to add a dab of ink towards the center of my main flower giving it a more blended, and darker appearance. The new blending brushes are so fun to play with! 



I added some Elegant Faceted Gems for a little sparkle and my sentiment is from the new In Bloom Stamp Set.



My card layout was inspired by one I saw on Pinterest made by Jenn Houston. I loved the way she used the Stitched Nested Labels. I have an image of the labels below, with my measurements, noting which labels I used. 

I hope you enjoyed stopping by today! Don’t forget to keep hopping along to see all of the other amazing creators and their fun projects this month!
