Pure Bliss!

Wow, I really like this image.
The card turned out so clean and crisp - of course part of that is the color choice. This card uses Tempting Turquoise and Whisper White. The border on this card was made with the Lace Edge Border Punch.  I did add a Self-Stick Rhinestone to the center of the image.

This great image is from one of the Sale-a-bration stamp sets called Bliss. There are 5 stamps in the set including a tiny little bird, a butterfly and a flower that I'm eager to try using as a pointsettia. You can browse the whole Sale-a-bration catalog here. Be sure to check the back page which has a long list of regular catalog items that also qualify as a SAB reward.

This image is really suited to multiple styles.
Other than the lace and the little bit of sparkle on it, this card is very clean and fresh. Now check out the video below. The speaker is Shannon West. This is one of Stampin'UP!'s YouTube Videos. In it Shannon shows how to make a "vintage" card using the Aqua Painter to create the distressing. Its a very cool technique!

What did you think - I just found this video and it looks so easy. I'm really eager to try this technique.

Thanks for checking this blog. Please let me know if there is any way I can help with your stamping needs. Remember, Sale-a-bration is the time to restock. If your order is over $50 you could choose this cute stamp set called Bliss.
