Practicing Creativity Designs: Look Up! Additions

Doesn't the title just make you excited? I'm so excited to show you this set. I had a blast illustrating this set to add to Look Up!

Here's the card I made, and I have a video to show you exactly how I made it. Plus, in the video I share a few of the little interactive pieces. But first here's my card:
And here's the video:

Or you can watch the video over at YouTube here.

The design team has rocked this stamp set, and we have three amazing guest designers this month! You're going to love these creations! The design team has taken a card made with the original Look Up! and used it as inspiration to create a new card.




 Aren't these so cute? I love how Karen created this stained glass look and you can check out her blog for how to achieve this look. Karen also used the new banner to create the scallops.

 Are these not so cute? Dana made the first card with Look Up! and the second one with Look Up! Additions. And don't you just love that scallop on the banner?  That's an additional stamp that you can add to the scallop banner.
 Aren't these so sweet. I just love the colors Paulina used. And that background from Retro Christmas Backgrounds, so sweet.

And check out what our fabulous guest designers created!


I'm thrilled to have Vanessa this month! Don't you love these sweet balloons! I just love this creative way to use the set!
Amy Kolling
Isn't the color combo Amy used fantastic? I just love it. Amy also used one of the patterns you can use on the banner to create her own scallop border. I'm so going to have to try that myself!

Go check out these girl's blogs for more details on all their fabulous cards! 

Make sure you check back tomorrow where we'll show you sneak peeks from our other set that's releasing this month! It's also a sequel! :)

Before you leave, leave a comment and we'll be giving away Look Up! Additions. I'd love to hear what you think about Look Up! Additions!
