Now back to the card...these hot air balloons are so cute!  I'm having so much fun working with this bundle!

Stampin-up-free-stamps-hey-chick-2Today's project is a super cute card and video tutorial created with Hey, Chick from Stampin' Up! that you can earn for FREE during Sale-A-Bration!

But, first...a little about why I've been absent a few days.  Along with having the blessing of our daughter and grandbaby here for a week, I've managed to have the worst sinus headache that I've had in YEARS!  It has knocked me down!  I am much better today so I wanted to share one of the many projects that are sitting in my craft room waiting to be shared! 

One more thing...my iPhone has about topped out on space....How does that happen??? I have 55 GB and have deleted almost EVERYTHING from my phone! This really upsets me...my phone is less than a year old. :( If you have any ideas, please let me know!  I use my phone to record my videos and I barely have room to record a 5 minute video!

OK...enough of the rant!

Stampin-up-free-stamps-hey-chick-1Isn't Miss Chick adorable?  This set is so much fun!  In fact, all of the Sale-A-Bration sets that you can earn for FREE are amazing!  That's right...it's Sale-A-Bration and you can earn any item from the special Sale-A-Bration brochure with each $50 in product purchase before shipping and tax.

Birthday-card-for-a-guy-aFor today's Makeover Monday we have a birthday card for a guy that gets a real pop from the Cable Knit Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.

Going to be quick post...a little tired and emotionally exhausted from spending the majority of the last 24 hours at the hospital with my mom.  Thankfully, she's home and doing fine.   I'm ready to relax, give thanks, and put my feet up!  To those of you in my Facebook group that knew of this, thanks for your prayers!

So, here we go with the video that inspired this card.  The technique is replaced with the designer paper!

Tuesday Tip - Coloring with Blender Pens

Happy Tuesday and welcome to this week's tip on coloring with Blender Pens.

This video is in response to a question that I received from a customer regarding using the ink from our Stampin' Up! Classic Ink Pads to color an image. 

Watch the video below to see the method that's given me the best results. 

Coloring with blender pens on watercolor paper is easy and fun! The Basket of Wishes set has several images for appropriate for different occasions along with coordinating sentiments.
