Watermelon Wonder Dahlias - Expressions Elements Video


Today I have a QUICK Stampin' Up! VIDEO TUTORIAL for you with a Tip for coloring your wooden Expressions Natural Elements!!!  Have you used these yet? You'll find them on page 160 in the new 2015/2016 Stampin' UP! Catalog, or HERE in my online store.

You can see below that I've added these neat wooden elements to the Definitely Dahlia cards for a little 3-D fun!


 Watch the video below by clicking on the photo, or, watch it here on YouTube


 Aren't they fun!?  I love them! I ordered several packs and will be using them on my Convention swaps ... are you a demonstrator attending Convention this year?  Swapping cards is SO fun!

When you watch my video in this post, you will see that I grabbed a spare plastic bag to help me in coloring the wooden element.. it was MUCH better than getting totally inky fingers!!

I LOVE the new Definitely Dahlia background stamp.. well, how could I NOT love it.. right?! It's a FLOWER!!  I stamped it in Watermelon Wonder ink on Whisper White Cardstock... simple and striking!  And how gorgeous is this pretty printed paper from the Pretty Petals Paper Stack!!!! Wow!!


Above: these were my supplies for this card:

Folded Watermelon Wonder Card: 4-1/4" x 11", folded in 1/2

4" x 4-1/2" Piece of Whisper White to stamp the Dahlia on

4" x 1-1/4" piece of patterned paper from the Pretty Petals Paper Stack

Wooden Elements & ink pad

In Color Lace Ribbon (use either Watermelon Wonder or Cucumber Crush)


After I made the "top fold" cards above, I tried the same basic design in a side fold card... I love how both designs came out great!

Are you going to use these fun wooden elements? What color will you try!?
