Stamp & Create Product Spotlight ~ Basic Grey

Happy Monday! Whew! It is quite warm and muggy today and at the moment, it feels like we might have some thunderstorms. I have a mental note as to which windows I have open in case I have to close them :)

I was busy this morning trying to get caught up with my Project Life :) I have completed up to week #14 so am feeling great. I have to say, that this truly is a great way to document your life. I am way, way behind in my traditional scrapbooking so this really makes me feel less guilty. We all enjoy the process of taking pictures and it has really made me more aware of the small things in life which truly are the most important! After posting this, I will go choose my pictures for the last two weeks and hopefully get totally caught up my tomorrow!

So, today I have my Stamp & Create Product Spotlight to share with you and this week we are shining the light on:

Basic Grey

All Basic Grey Paper, Stamps, Brads, Buttons, and Bling are on sale 25% off this week.

047 copy

I used two images from CC Designs: Swiss Woodland Lucy and Swiss Woodland Mushroom. She is utterly adorable and I lover her perched on top of this flower.

They were both colored with a combination of distress inks and Twinkling H20s. Two of my dear blogging friends; Lacey & Katharina, are expert watercolorists and I adore the gorgeous tonal quality that you can achieve by using watercolors so I decided to reach for them for this card instead of my usual Copics. I get all my Twinling H20s and water tank brushes ~here~.

The patterned paper is from Basic Grey's Nook & Pantry paper pad. To embellish my card,  I used Kaiser Crafts Pearls, May Arts Silk ribbon, Stampin’ Up pleated ribbon and assorted Kaiser Craft and Prima Flowers.

I am entering my card in the Ribbon Girl Challenge. They have a color change to use pink, orange and aqua.

The Stamp & Create blog candy this week is:

Ducky Duck from Magnolia's Princes & Princesses Collection 2012
