Appreciation

Good Morning!

How cute is this little fellow?

This is from an amazing new stamp set in the Spring Summer catalogue called Bird Banter.

I used Tuxedo Black Memento ink to stamp the greeting and the toucan.

The toucan was coloured with watercolour pencils and blender pens.

I added foliage from the set with Old Olive ink and coloured the leaves with watercolour pencil.

The base card is made from Garden Green card stock, which I embossed with a new embossing folder from the Petal Palette Suite.

Some Striped Lemon Lime Twist ribbon was zigzagged across the back of the stamped panel before adhering to the card base with dimensionals.

I hope you enjoyed this project. The supplies used are listed and linked below.

Season of Cheer

Good Morning,

Today’s project uses the Feeling of Christmas and Watercolor Christmas stamp sets.

A Whisper White card layer was stamped first using Memento ink. The images were coloured using Stampin’ Blend markers. This was adhered flat to a Real Red card base.

The same image was stamped and coloured on a 3 by 3 inch square.

The sentiment was then stamped with clear versamark ink and heat embossed with copper powder. This was added to the card with dimensionals.

Some Quilted Christmas ribbon was tied into a small bow and secured with a glue dot.

Rhinestones were coloured with the Bronze Stampin’ Blend marker.

I hope you enjoyed this project.

Don’t forget the End of Year Sale is still on. Grab a bargain while you can.

Across the Miles

Hi Crafters,

Here is another simple Christmas card. I have used the Feeling of Christmas stamp set today.

The set includes two large designs. On a 3-1/2 inch square, the sketchy swirl was stamped first with Pear Pizzazz ink. The line art was then stamped over the top in Archival Black and allowed to dry.

Meanwhile, the card base was made from Real Red card stock. I used versamark ink and the Holly Berry Happiness stamp set to create the background.

The sentiment from this set was stamped in Garden Green ink.

The main image was coloured with Stampin’ Write Markers; Garden Green, Real Red and a little Crushed Curry.

The elements were adhered to the card base with dimensionals.

I hope you enjoyed this project. The supplies used are listed and linked below.

Many Marvellous Markers

Good Morning Everybody,

Today’s project is a special thank you to my fab upline Sam Hammond …. Not only does she love rainbows, but I have used the Many Marvellous Marker collection which I only have because of her amazing generosity.

I have used the “acrylic block technique” to make this colourful background.

By adding ink from the stampin’ write markers on to the block, lightly spritzing with water and then stamping this on to watercolour paper – that’s it!

Leave it to dry and then cut it to size.

The stampin’ write markers can be used for stamping too! The sentiment from All Things Thanks was coloured with three markers, Smoky Slate, Basic Grey and Basic Black for a gradient effect.

I finished the card with black bakers twine and rhinestones.

I hope you enjoyed this project. To get your hands on these marvellous products click the links below.

Half Full

What an amazing weekend! Becoming a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator was the best decision ever.

Yesterday was a team day put together by my upline Sam Hammond and Caroline Helwigh.

During the day, we had the opportunity to work with the Half Full stamp set.

I made three cards in the time we had… including a Christmas card with not a wine glass in sight!

The images were coloured using blender pens and ink. I can’t wait to try watercolour pencils and Stampin’ Blends with this set too!

Once coloured, the images were layered up and simply attached to card bases.

I hope you enjoyed this project. The supplies used are listed and linked below.

For Mum

Good Morning!

I made this card especially for my mother-in-law’s birthday last weekend.

I used the beautiful Stampin’ Blends to colour the rose image. The darkest shades of Cherry Cobbler were used in the centre, gradually blending in the lighter shades of Calypso Coral towards the edges.

The leaves were coloured with Old Olive markers. The dark shade was added along the veins of the leaves and then blended with the light marker.

The dies were used to cut a black outline image and the sentiment.

The fine tip glue pen was used to adhere the delicate outline. The sentiment was raised on dimensionals. The panel was added to a Calypso Coral card base.

I hope you enjoyed this project. The supplies used are listed and linked below.

Happy Birthday to You

Good Morning,

I discovered the Happy Celebrations stamp set had this great bold lettering perfect for some Stampin’ Blend colouring!

I stamped the sentiment on to a scrap of Whisper White card stock using Tuxedo Black Memento ink.

Once completely dry, I used Rich Razzleberry Stampin’ Blend markers the colour the image. To achieve this, each letter was coloured individually, starting with the lightest shade. The dark marker was used at the bottom, and blended out to the top with the light marker.

The coloured panel was adhered to a piece of vellum with Fast Fuse adhesive.

The card base was made with Rich Razzleberry card stock. A piece of striped paper from the Birthday Memories designer series paper collection was chosen as the background.

The sentiment was added to the card with dimensionals and some rhinestones provided a bit of sparkle.

Count my Blessings

Good Morning,

I thought i would get in another autumn card before winter really starts to bite.

I have used an old favourite stamp set, Vintage Leaves.

On a Whisper White card layer, I stamped small leaves with Old Olive ink. I used first, second and third generation stamping.

The large leaf was stamped in Garden Green ink and then coloured with Old Olive and Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blend markers. This was fussy cut and some linen thread was added to the stem.

The sentiment was taken from Count my Blessings and was stamped with Tranquil Tide ink on to a strip of Whisper White card stock. The bottom edge was cut to a banner and the adhered with dimensionals.

The leaf was layered on to the largest Stitched circle die cut and added using Fast Fuse adhesive.

Finally, the panel was adhered to a Tranquil Tide card base.

I hope you enjoyed this project. The supplies used are listed and linked below.

First Communion #GDP111

Good Morning,

It’s Wednesday – that means its Global Design Project day. This week is a theme challenge.

You can see what the design team created here.

… And this is my interpretation of the challenge…

img_20171031_210931_415_wm-777913213.jpg

I have used the Inspired Events stamp set to make this beautiful card to celebrate a First Communion.

The card base is made with Pink Pirouette card stock. The white card layer was decorated using the fancy corner stamp in Pink Pirouette ink.

A piece of Whisper White was cut 1 inch shorter and narrower. The large decorative stamp was used along the bottom edge and some Powder Pink ribbon was wrapped around it. The sentiment was added to the top right corner.

The flowers were coloured using Stampin’ Blends. Some sparkle was added with Wink of Stella.

To complete the card, I tied a small bow and used rhinestones to decorate the ribbon.

 

I hope you enjoyed this project. The supplies used are listed below.

Stampin’ Blends

I am so excited to share these cards that I made using the brand spanking shiny new alcohol markers from Stampin’ Up!

There are 12 colours to choose from, a light and dark shade of each. In addition, there is a Bronze and Ivory marker which are great for skin tones. The Colour Lifter helps with blending, erasing small mistakes or adding highlights.

To demonstrate the effects that can be achieved,I picked out the Remarkable You stamp set.

The images were stamped with Memento (water based) ink. Starting at the bottom, I used:

Dark and Light Calypso Coral.

Light Calypso Coral and Pumpkin Pie.

Light Pumpkin Pie and Daffodil Delight.

Dark and Light Daffodil Delight.

To create the blend, the image was coloured with the lightest shade first, added shadow and then blended this out with the light shade again.

A softer look can also be achieved too. Applying some colour in small areas and using the colour lifter to blend creates an illusion of depth on white objects. A halo of Pool Party also blended with the colour lifter provides definition from the white background.

I hope this has given you some ideas.

Get your markers from 1st November, or join the Stampin’ Up! family and add them to your starter kit.

Look out for more projects coming soon.

Thanks for stopping by and happy stampin’!
