Wings in the Air

When I first saw this card on I thought,  "love the card but it really looks complicated".  Not so.  Stampin’ Write Markers and a blender pen made it easy to create this water color effect.  A few squeezes with the Color Spritzer Tool put a vintage spin to it.   The embossed butterflies added elegance.

This was voted second favorite at my February stamp camp.

Wicked Cool

Wicked Cool

This is the card we made at my World Card Making Day Open House last Saturday featuring Stampin’ UP’s new Simply Scored scoring tool.  The witch’s skirt was a great starter project for making the accordion folded rosettes that are a HOT trend.  I highly recommend using the lid of a Hershey’s Hot Fudge jar as a positioning tool to keep the rosette in place while applying adhesive.  You could use any jar the matches the measurement of the hot fudge jar but then you wouldn’t be able to have hot fudge sundaes.

Everytime I look this card it reminds me of the lyrics in the Wizard of Oz song, “Ding dong the witch is dead.” 
A BIG thanks to my friend and upline Pam D'Urso for letting me borrow her stamp set.
This card was cased from Julie Arvin.
