Work of Art with Flowering Flourishes

I posted this card on a private site and it was CASEd,
and then used for a swap.
As a result, I decided to post my original design!
It features a set from the new catalog, called Work of Art.
It is a wonderful set!!
I embossed the Flowering Flourishes set with
Gold Embossing Powder, as well as the 
sentiment from the Work of Art set.
I then used the Work of Art set to color portions of
the image with Blushing Bride, Soft Sky and 
Pistachio Pudding.  The Work of Art set has such a nice
watercolor flare, that it really makes a card look artsy!
Look for the release of Work of Art June 2nd
with the new Stampin' Up! catalog!

Happy Congratulations Sneak w Blendabilities

The 2014-15 SU catalog will be released June 2nd.
This catalog will feature an exciting new product: Blendabilities.
Blendabilities are an alcohol based marker, that works
extremely well on the SU Whisper White card stock.

I really like the Happy Congratulations set from the
Occasions Mini and decided to demo some outgoing with
in-coming, Sneak Peak Product!

Colors:  Old Olive, Blendabilities Pumpkin Pie, Basic Black

Other:  Rhinestones, colored with Pumpkin Pie Blendabilities

 Blendabilities are sold in packs of 3, with a "light",
"medium" and "dark" marker for a given color, 
in this case, Pumpkin Pie.

If you look at the string above, the 1st, 3rd and 5th 
circles are colored with an individual marker shade.
the 2nd and 4th circles are shaded, using all 3 markers.
