Kickoff Party Card - Beautiful You

Current Specials
Upcoming Events

One of my biggest events of the year is the annual Occasions Catalog & Sale-a-Bration Kickoff Party that I host with Angie Leach.  This is the ULTIMATE new catalog event, because it allows you to play with dozens of new products from the catalog! You'll create 20 DIFFERENT cards, each one highlighting a different stamp set (or two) from either the Occasions Catalog or Sale-a-Bration Brochure!  It's a fabulous way to try it before you buy it, while you stock up on cards for all occasions! 
But that's not all!  At the Kickoff Party, we'll have dozens of new catalog samples to inspire you, hourly prize giveaways, exclusive Sale-a-Bration specials you can only take advantage of at the event...and more!  You don't want to miss this one!

Today, I'm sharing one of the cards from Angie that we'll be creating at the Kickoff Party featuring the gorgeous Beautiful You stamp set, along with the awesome new Watercolor Pencils!  Oh, and did I mention that every class attendee will receive a FREE set of Watercolor Pencils in their supplies?!  Whoo hoo! 
Angie and I will be sharing a sneak peek of a Kickoff Party card every Saturday & Sunday over the next 3 weeks!  Look for the "Kickoff Party Card" logo!

Beautiful You White Watercolor Cards

If you love to color, you're going to LOVE the new Watercolor Pencils!  Not only can you color with them as a dry pencil, you can use an AquaPainter or Blender Pen to dissolve the color and blend it smoothly and effortlessly!  Best of all, these colors perfectly MATCH our Stampin' Up! exclusive colors, so everything it should!

Focal Point— Angie started by stamping the dancing Beautiful You girl onto a 4" x 3-1/4" piece of Crumb Cake with Archival Black Ink.  She stamped her off to the right side to have plenty of room to stamp one of the lovely Beautiful You sentiments next to her.  She also added a water image from the new High Tide stamp set along the bottom, making her look like she is dancing on the shore!    

Next, she lightly sponged some Soft Suede ink around the edges of the stamped layer for some depth.  

Watercolor Accents—Angie colored her hat with the Bermuda Bay Watercolor Pencil, adding a little heavier color to the left side.  Then, she blended the color with an Aqua Painter to soften up the pencil strokes.  Super easy!  Her dress is colored with the White Watercolor Pencil.  I love how the white adds a soft, opaque look!  Just color in the whole dress with the pencil and smooth out the marks with the Aqua Painter.

Finishing Touches—Angie added a strip of Very Vanilla 1/2" Lace Trim to the edge of a 4-5/8" x 3-3/8" layer of Bermuda Bay card stock, securing the ends on the back with a full strip of Tear & Tape Adhesive down the side.  The texture of the lace requires a little extra sticky to keep it in place.  I also wrapped some Linen Thread around that layer and tied it into a bow.

The Bermuda Bay layer is adhered to the Soft Suede card base with SNAIL and the watercolored layer is popped up with Dimensionals over the top.

Of course, this wouldn't be complete without a second "Too Cool" version from Angie!

Two Cool—For the second, vertical version, she used a Rich Razzleberry background and highlighted the umbrella girl image and a different sentiment from the Beautiful You set.

This one is colored with the Melon Mambo Watercolor Pencil on the umbrella and shoes.  Angie thought it was a nice "bright" color to go with the phrase she selected.

Complete Supplies List—"Clear" means a rubber stamp on a clear block. "Photopolymer" is see-thru. 
Thanks for stopping by,
