Wow...So much is happening in the next 24 hours. Stamp sets I love are retiring and the new 2018-2019 Stampin' Up! annual catalog goes live! I am listing a few of my favorite stamp sets that are retiring, along with some photos of projects I made with them. I will link all products below this blog post.
Remarkable You stamp set: I LOVE this stamp set and am sorry to see these lovely flowers go. They are so amazing for watercoloring. I used gold and white embossing powder on the flowers below, along with watercoloring techniques. It is probably my favorite project I made with this stamp set.
The card below was my entry for a Global Design Project. I used a bit of a mixed media look with this one. The torn cardboard was from one of my Stampin' Up! boxes I received an order in!
The background for the card below was created using my "not your Mother's shaving cream technique". Click here for video tutorial.
This next stamp set is called Wherever You Go and has some very interesting images. I adore the bridge.
The card above was made using my "foolproof watercolor technique". Click here for a quick video showing how I use baby wipes to achieve this look. Click here and here for a few blog posts with more information on the technique.

The next set is called Rose Wonder. It has matching dies.
I white embossed the image above, before lightly watercoloring it.
I gold embossed the image above, before watercoloring it. I actually used 2 of the stamped images and selectively trimmed the second one for the rose bud on the upper right.
I hope you have enjoyed seeing some of my favorite projects. The specific stamp sets (and dies) are listed below.
