"For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it." ~ Isaiah 55: 8-11

FAUX SILK...

This is cute little set, 'Bud Basics' was first introduced in a mini catalog & made it's way into the big one!

On this card I used a new technique featured on SplitCoastStampers last week, called 'faux silk'.

Check out the tutorial~ it's super easy!

To make the scallopped edges shown on this card, dig out your Stampin' Up! (EK Success) corner rounder punch, carefully take the guide off the bottom of the punch and play, play, play! It's a funky way to add interest to your projects!

It's hard to tell in this picture, but the 2 flowers in the center are covered with dazzling diamonds glitter, and I added a rhinestone brad for some added 'bling'!

STAMPs: Bud Basics
INKs: Groovy Guava, Purely Pomegranate, So Saffron, More Mustard, Soft Sky, Blue Bayou
PAPERs: Purely Pomegranate, So Saffron, Whisper White, tissue paper
EMBELLISHMENTS: Dazzling Diamonds glitter, Rhinestone brad, Soft Sky double-stitched ribbon

NEW YEAR, NEW STAMPS, & A NEW DEMO SITE!

The highly anticipated SU! Spring-Summer catalog came out on January 1st... if you don't have a copy, and would like one, let me know!

I will admit I've gone a little crazy "collecting" some of the new stamp sets, but can't you see why? Some of them are really breath-taking!

This new set is called "embrace life", and has a matching paper (also shown), 'ginger blossom'. I really love the colors!

I have a lot of great classes on the schedule, as well as a new SU! demo site~ SO CHECK IT OUT!
