Flourishing Creativity!!!!

Enjoyed two wonderful days stamping with my friends at Stamp, Play and Create. What an awesome time ... with awesome people.

Each month at Stamp, Play and Create we feature a product and use that product in the items that we make. Our featured product in September was Watercolor Paper. If you didn't realize it, it is now larger (which I love) -- each piece measures 6" x 9". The larger size allows you do use it in more projects!!!

We had so much fun making the projects, I wanted to share them with you!

This card uses the new Fancy Fan Letterpress Plate, as well as new Pewter Embossing Powder (in the Holiday Mini Catalog). I wish the picture did it justice - its gorgeous in real life!!

For this project, the background was made using the Stripes Embossing Folder! Too cool!!

Now that the Watercolor Paper is larger, you can create an elegant note card made with this high quality paper. The butterflies were colored using Watercolor Pencils and a blender pen. In this photo, I used Crystal Effects on top of the butterflies. During the first class, someone (I think it was Becky) suggested glitter on top of the butterflies and I pulled out a new product in the Holiday Mini - Dazzling Details which is similar to a glitter glue. We applied that and it came out so pretty -- so pretty in fact I used it in the other two classes!!!!

This is another card that evolved during the weekend! We watercolored the flower with Watercolor Crayons and the Aqua Painter. This is what we started with and I added more images to the background and a shadow to the flower thanks to comments from class attendees. I love the comments and how the projects changed for the better throughout the weekend. To see and feel the creative energy in the room was fabulous!!!

Next month at Stamp, Play and Create we will be making four holiday cards. The featured products will be Silver Glimmer Paper and the Winter Wishes Stitched Felt as pictured below.
