I love quick, easy cards and I hope you do, too! I think that is what makes stamping so great--you can make a creation that you can be proud of in minutes. I also like to knit. NOTHING about knitting comes all that quickly to me! :) This card uses Stampin Up's Bohemian Washi Tape which is a great way to add quick color and designs to a card, plus it is self-sticking and rips easy, so it is so quick to add!

Thanks for joining us on the Creation Station BLog Hop! THis week's hop is dedicated to Sympathy, Thinking of You and Get Well Son Cards. While this isn't always the most cheerful subject, it is one of my most requested card types. I hope you like my project--I really think this is a perfect card for any of these needs.
Well, I just can't get enough of the Watercolor Wings set--I think that the reason it is so good is because that it can work for just about any occasion! The other thing that just makes this card so pretty is the unique color combo for the butterfly. I used So Saffron Stamped off for the base layer, So Saffron for the wing tips and Smoky Slate for the center details. I also used vellum for the smaller wings framelit. LOVE how easy it is to stamp these butterflies and get amazing results! The other thing that makes this card is the beautiful background texture from the Fluttering Embossing folder! I just love the look it gives!
This is a quick and happy card--my favorite kind!! The colors Pool Party and Bermuda Bay butterflies are using 2 colors of ink. The other two use the solid butterfly "stamped off" to create a lighter shade, then the detail image is stamped on top full-strength! Quick and easy!

So, I have to show you this card I made for a wonderful friend of mine who just happens to live in Australia!! Liv is such a fun and wonderful lady who I met in line waiting to check in for my Stampin Up Grand Vacation a couple of years ago, and of course we've stayed in touch!! She has sent me a couple of SWEET treats in the mail, and so I wanted to show my appreciation with something I knew she would love: Paper Pumpkin Kits!! Unfortunately, they are not available in the Australian market, so I sent her a couple that I could order extras of! She loved them!!
I also made a card for her son, Spencer (he had just celebrated a birthday and I knew he was into The Avengers--honestly what little boy isn't these days?) So, I saw a couple of fun little things for him to add to the box!!
So the card I have today is the one I put in her box! Liv is absolutely the best and she is one of my favorite parts of being a demonstrator: THE AMAZING PEOPLE who you are introduced through stamping!! I know people all over the world, who truly are friends because of Stampin Up! Whether it is my local customers, my demonstrator friends across the country (and world!) or how amazing Stampin Up has touched my life, it is humbling to know we were all brought together over stamping!! My goal is to go to the Australian Convention held in 2016 to visit Liv!!!

Welcome to the Grand Vacation Blog Hop for July!! Our theme this month is to show off the brand new In colors from the just released 2015 – 2016 Annual Catalog!! I hope you enjoy all the amazing projects showcased!!
You may just be starting the blog hop here at my blog - The Creativity Cave by Dena Rekow or may have come from the person previous to me in the list. If you get off track at any time, the full lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all the projects. At the moment you are visiting Dena Rekow.
Today I have some really fun and simple projects using the set, Stamp a Bag (I might add, I have yet to actually stamp a bag with it--it is way too fun for cards so far!!! I also used my Watercolor Wishes Card Kit stamp set to add greetings for the cards. That kit is a dream!!! Love the stamps for other projects!!
So the theme is Color Me New and we needed to stamp using at least 2 of Stampin Up!'s new In Colors, so I picked Watermelon Wonder (which I love) and Tip Top Taupe (also love--and it is soooooo versatile!!) I then added Blushing Bride and Calypso Coral to complete the look!
Love the simplicity of this one!! Quick and easy with a couple of punches some pearls and I'm done!!
Next I added the new Lots of Labels Framelits and built on my previous card to step it up a bit! I love how it turned out!!
The background dots were stamped off because the "full-strength" ones were just a bit "IN YOUR FACE!!"
The last card I stamped the background in white and I rubbed the edges with my white pad and love how it looks!! This card is a little simpler, but I thought I needed to put my flower punch down and back off...I am truly addicted to those Itty Bitty Accents Punches!!
Thanks so much for taking part in our blog hop!! I hope you loved the ideas on my page-- there are so many amazing ideas and inspiration you don't want to miss.

SO I have to say that besides Watercolor Wings, my next favorite set is for sure Watercolor Words!!! I LOVE The look of the words (the font) and I love the images they added to work together with those words! The combination makes for CRAZY EASY and QUICK cards!! What's not to love?!
This card uses "the Donna" technique--you can see how I did it here:
The supplies are below...one more quick thing: I have a new series starting up soon--and I am SUPER DUPER excited about it! It is called Stampin Selfies--I can't wait to share it with you!! Watch for more info coming soon!
