For this card, I am showcasing the Background Builders stamp set.  I was inspired by Kristina Werner on this card. I used the versamark ink to stamp the images and then used some pearl embossing powder to emboss it.

Favorite Projects of 2013 Day 1

Hello everyone!  I am busy trying to get ahead and plan for the 2014 year.  Over the next few days, I will be showcasing some of the cards that I created this year that I really enjoyed creating.  

For my first card, it was originally posted on my other blog, Candied Cards.  I no longer use this blog since I needed to cut down on some spending.



For my second card, this was created for the Happy Easter Challenge at Red Carpet Studio.

2014 Occasion Catalog Sneak Peek Day 2

Welcome back for day 2 of my Occasion Catalog sneak peek!  Today I am showcasing 5 new products set to be released in January.  First, I am using the Hardwood background stamp again.  I really love this stamp and I think that it's going to be very popular.  The second new product I used is the Fresh Prints Designer Series Paper on the banner.  This is the 4.5 x 6.5 paper stack just like the ones introduced in the Holiday mini.  You get 48 sheets, 4 each of 12 designs.  Next, I used the new Banner framelits.  This die set is perfect for making banners, like how I used in the card, or for making tags.  One way or another, I think that this is going to be a hit.  The last two products I used go hand in hand.  For the sentiment, I used the Starburst Sayings stamp set along with the coordinating Starburst framelits.  I just loved using this bundle set.  I hope you join me next month when the catalog is released.  If you don't have a demonstrator, I would love to work with you.  You can visit my site at candicefields.stampinup.net.  See you tomorrow for day 3 of sneak peeks.
