Builder Birdcage Watercolor Background Card

I'm exhausted! It's been a pretty stressful week -- working until the last minute to finish our tax return, listing our house for sale, and finding a new house and making an offer! Now we just have to sell our house and we'll be all set to move this summer! It's not a big move -- the new house is only 2-1/2 miles away, but a move is a move! With all the craziness this week, I've decided to cancel my April Stamp of the Month Club. I had planned to feature the Builder Birdcage stamp set. This fun stamp set is retiring, so be sure to order it by May 31st! It's one of many retiring products that's one sale! Check out the full list here and go shopping in my Online Stampin' Up! Store!

Video: Shaving Cream Marbling Technique

VIDEO: Shaving Cream Marbling Technique ~ Stampin' Up!
Raid the bathroom and grab some shaving cream for this fun technique! Full disclosure: it's been a good 10 years since I've tried this myself because I'm not a messy stamper! But Donna from the Stampin' Up! training team will show you how to use your ink refills to create a cool background in this technique video.

Bunny Buddies Easter Basket + Easter Photos

Happy Easter!! Earlier this weekend, my stamping mojo found me and I cranked out some projects that I've been thinking about for weeks. One of them was a basket made from the Window Box Thinlit die and the March 2017 Bunny Buddies Paper Pumpkin kit.

I think it would have used a little more color, but I'm happy with the way it turned out. I made a few more projects using the Window Box Thinlit and will post a video showing how to do the half box this week.

Things have been extra busy around our house as we have been cleaning, packing, and purging getting ready to list our house for sale and I feel like I've been the Energizer bunny going and going and going. So this Easter Sunday, I made it a point to relax and enjoy the quiet holiday with my family. We started by attending the earliest church service to avoid the crowds, then stopped for donuts on the way home, where the Easter baskets were magically waiting (I actually told my 7 year old this year that I am the one who fills them!), we died eggs, frosted the lamb cake, did a egg hunt (with a Let's Make a Deal twist that involved "parent dates" for them to win!), played games, snuggled, and Skyped with grandparents. It was a pretty perfect day! Here are a few pictures

Sneak Peek: This Little Piggy Card for GDP#082

Sneak Peek: Stampin' Up! This Little Piggy Blooms Card for GDP#082 ~ 2017-2018 Annual Catalog ~ www.juliedavison.com
I love a good sketch challenge! I've been thinking about this sketch for the Global Design Project challenge all week. My task today is to work on my tax return, but I couldn't help but to procrastinate this morning and make a card! I used the This Little Piggy stamp set. These little pigs are so cute! I was so excited when they gave this stamp set to all attendees at On Stage. It will be released in the new annual catalog on June 1st, so you'll have to wait another 6 weeks to get it. But don't wait to order the Blooms & Bliss Designer Paper and Sending Love Ribbon -- they will be gone before the new catalog is released!

I stamped the pig image twice -- once on Whisper White cardstock and once on Blushing Bride. I cut out around the Blushing Bride pig and glued that piece over the Whisper White cardstock. This technique is called Paper Piecing. I used the Aquapainter to paint the mud with Sahara Sand ink. I colored the flower with markers.
Here is the sketch for this week's Global Design Project. Check out what everyone else has created and make a card to play along!
