With Pigment Sprinkles On Top

Perennial Birthday Stampin' Up!

Hello Friends,

For today's blog post, I thought that it would be fun to put "Sprinkles on Top".  That's pigment sprinkles.  This was my first time to use the Pigment Sprinkles so I thought that I would share the experience with you via video.  Wow!  They really are intriguing.  The package includes 6 bright and cheerful Stampin' Up! colors:  Melon Mambo, Gorgeous Grape, Granny Apple Green, Daffodil Delight, Mango Melody, and Bermuda Bay.


See them in action with this quick video.  Watercolor pigment crystals work their magic when mixed with water.  I'm envisioning using them for watercolor backgrounds and washes, not to mention watercolor techniques.

Check You Out Bookmark


Hello Friends,

Some of you may have heard that my husband lost his job last week.  Now that we have digested that, it's time for some encouragement.  So naturally, I turned to my Craft Room.  Today's handcrafted bookmark is for Joe.  It features the new Check You Out photopolymer stamp set by Stampin' Up!.

Check You Out Stampin' Up!

Love the little owl with his glasses, the worm with his bow tie and even the old-fashion library card!  It's a whole lot of cuteness. 

To make my bookmark masculine, I used the Come Sail Away Designer Paper and manly colors.  I used the colors listed on the Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper Pack as a starting point, then added a few colors of my own.  My Check You Out Bookmark colors are Tuxedo Black, Sahara Sand, Soft Suede, Terra Cotta Tile, Night of Navy and Balmy Blue.  And then I threw in a snippet of Crushed Curry Crinkled Seam binding for one last pop of color.

I did some fussy cutting to make the pocketed library card, but the owl on the stack of books was die cut with the Stitched Rectangles Dies.  To make the top of my bookmark.  I used the Detailed Trio Punch.  What a handy tool for any craft room.


The video from the Stampin' Up! office demonstrates how to use the Detailed Trio Punch and why it's so cool starting at about 29 seconds into the video.

Speaking of videos, I did some rearranging on my Stamping Country YouTube Channel this past weekend to make it easier for you to find relevant video tutorials.  Check it out.  And if you haven't already, be sure to Subscribe.
