Need A Little Stampin Up Pickup?

Then the Loads of Love & Loads of Love Accessories stamp sets from Stampin' Up! is just what you need!

I have a friend who recently moved and as we all know, moving is stressful and tiring! I thought I would send her this card to "pickup" her day.

The pickup was colored in using Stampin' Up! Watercolor Pencils and Blender Pens. I was looking for a soft look since its recipient is a female. All I did was pencil in a little color with the Watercolor Pencils, and blended/softened the hue with the Blender Pens. They are very easy to work with. If you add too much color, brush your Blender Pen over it to catch some of the color and rub it off on scrap paper. Need more color? Add more with your Watercolor Pencil and blend again until you have the desired shade.

Summer is going by fast! Last night my husband & I went to see an Abba tribute band. What a blast! They looked, dressed, and sang just like Abba. It was awesome! Everyone was dancing and singing along. Too fun!

Take care and drop me a comment letting me know what kind of fun you are having this summer?

Thanks for visiting!

Great "pickup" line! Sweet layout . . . the text broken up "ransom" style is charming with the style of the images. Hugs, Mary
