This weeks challenge at SUO is Black and White with a splash of color.  I used the stamp sets Weather Together and Playful Backgrounds for my card today.  My splash of color is Pool Party.  Here is the finished project.

The card is simple with stamping as the only technique used.  No fancy embellishments, ribbon or bling.

HELLO Everyone!

It's time for another challenge using Stampin' Up Only products.  This time the theme is to use things in Nature.  I decided to use the stamp set Hello Kitty.  I love cats and these images are so adorable.  

I used the Designer Series Paper Affectionately Yours.  The paper is double-sided so the layers are using both sides of one sheet.  I stamped the image and used my aqua painter to watercolor.  I layered the happy little kitty onto a 2015-2017 Mint Macaron dollie.  I then adhereded it to the card with dimensionals.  The banner is from the Number Of Years stamp set and the sentiment is from Hello Kitty.  The yellow enamel shapes are the perfect embellishment.  This card was fast and easy.

Happy 4th of July- US Independence Day

Happy 4th of July to all my blogger friends. 

 Hope your having fun celebrate our country's independence. Don't forget it's not just about grilling and fireworks.  Remember God has blessed the USA and made it great we should not take our liberty and freedoms lightly. 

Today I want to share a shaker card I made using the Number of Years stamp set.

I also used red foil sheet, silver glimmer paper and the new In-Colors DSP in Dapper Denim.
The "happy" and the '4' were cut out using the Number of Years framelits and the Hello You thinlits.
 I also used the layering circles dies.
Inside the shaker card I used the metallic sequins. 
The new foam strips made assembling this shaker easy peasy.
You can find all these items in the 2016-2017 Annual catalog.

Hope you have a safe and fun holiday.

Bye Bye for Now,
