Every Wednesday, at 7:00 pm eastern time, I create three projects live.  It’s so fun to connect with friends all over the world who sign in to watch.

I stamped the image and die cut the stitched square with the Stitched Shapes Dies.  In addition, I added a Pumpkin Pie frame as well as a scalloped square in Magenta Madness.  The scalloped square is die cut using the Layering Square Dies.

Free as a Bird

Handmade card created with Stampin' Up's Free as a Bird stamp set.  #Stampin' Up, #Stampin' Gala, #Water coloring, #Birthday, #Thinking of You

I wanted to create a card that can be used for many occasions for my newsletter this week.  I am in need of a card to send out for gifts that I received during the holiday season.  I think this card will work perfectly.  

The image is from the Free as a Bird stamp set.  

Handmade card created with Stampin' Up's Free as a Bird stamp set.  #Stampin' Up, #Stampin' Gala, #Water coloring, #Birthday, #Thinking of You

I stamped the image on Shimmery White card stock with Stazon Ink and water colored the image using a Water Painter.  If you haven’t tried water coloring, it is so easy and fun with our Water Painters.  Here is a closer look.
