Stampin' Up! Saturday #1

Happy Saturday! So I had this idea on Friday that I would get back to my *roots* and have one day a week on my blog where I showed cards that were stamped with Stampin' Up! only products. I use so many products with lots of "premade" accents or embellishments, I find I don't stamp as much as I used to, especially with my Stampin' Up! products, and I have a LOT of them! hehe! I want to challenge myself to get inky more often! I don't know how many visitors I get that use Stampin' Up! products, but I thought I would enter a "link up" below so others could share too! 

I got to stamp with my bff Lori yesterday, so we played along with the Seize the Birthday #20 challenge using this sketch: 

Here is Lori's card, so cute! We tried this new technique she saw where you use blue painter's tape, run it over your ink pad, then run it over the cardstock. It made a really cool effect, looks sort of like Washi tape! After I saw her cute scallop flower, I copied it to put on my card! It's all about sharing, right?! 

Next up, we played with new Perfect Blend stamp set. I've wanted a coffee set for so long and finally found one I loved! Lori was inspired by a card she saw online to create this fantastic card below. I love the splotches! She mixed up 70% alcohol/30% ink refill and put it in a mister bottle. Instead of misting, we pulled the piece out and "flicked" it onto the cardstock.

Here's my card below. I broke into my Epic Day This and That designer stickers. See, I still couldn't stay away from some premade embellishments! haha! 

Okay, I hope you like our cards and might want to get inky with some Stampin' Up! products too! Please link up your creations below if you want to share with us! Thanks so much for stopping by! Hugs and happy stamping!
