Embossed Delightful Birthday

Hello Everyone,

I thought I would get my embossing powders out today to create these simple stamping cards.

For the background stamping I used the Artisan Textures stamp set with a trio of ink colours, working from light to dark.

An embossing buddy ensured the ink was completely dry before adding the sentiment with versamark ink.

Embossing powder was sprinkled over the stamped sentiment and heated until melted.

The toppers were adhered to white card bases with dimensionals.

I hope you enjoyed this project. The supplies used are listed and linked to the online store below.

I would love to be your demonstrator.

Thanks for stopping by today and happy Stampin’!

In Colour Medley

Hello Everyone,

It will soon be time to say a fond farewell to some of the current In Colours. So today, I have used three of them to make this card.

I love using grungy stamps to make backgrounds. I used Artisan Textures for this project.

Lemon Lime Twist ink was used for the base layer. This was adhered to a Tranquil Tide card base.

On the topper, Berry Burst ink ink was used for the large image. A smaller image was chosen and stamped with Tranquil Tide ink. This was layered on to Tranquil Tide card stock and added to the card with dimensionals.

The sentiment from Perennial Birthday was stamped with Berry Burst ink and added across the topper.

Leaves from Tropical Chic were stamped with Tranquil Tide ink and die cut. These were tucked behind the sentiment strip.

Trick or Treat #FMS357

Good Morning,

As always on Friday, I am sharing my Freshly Made sketched challenge entry.

The design team have made some great projects which you can see here!

I have gone with a grungy Halloween theme featuring the Artisan Textures stamp set.

I masked off a section of a white card layer. Merry Merlot, Mossy Meadow and Night of Navy inks were used.

Some Sahara Sand Ink was added the edges before removing the mask.

The sentiment was added along the stamped edge with Merry Merlot ink.

Some spooky bats were punched from black card stock and painted with Frost White Shimmer paint.

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

With Love – Just Add Ink #424

Hello Everyone.,

Welcome to another challenge entry… I usually do these on Mondays, but this week has been a bit crazy getting ready for a new school term.

This week the challenge is…

You can see what the design team have made here.

My design features a new embossing folder called Tin Tile, it’s so pretty! I just used white card stock which I mounted on to a black card base.

The inner panel is 1-1/2 inches smaller so the the embossing is still visible.

A combination of Artisan Textures and Beautiful Blizzard was used to add the texture to this panel. Smoky Slate, Gray Granite and Black Memento Ink were used.

The sentiment also comes from Beautiful Blizzard… Just goes to show that there are uses beyond Christmas…. This was cut with the Darling Label punch.

Some black satin ribbon was added across the middle, with a small bow attached.

For a final bit of bling and extra texture a few pearl sequins were also used.

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

Just Add Ink #423

Hi Everyone,

I hope those of you in the UK are enjoying the Bank Holiday.

Today I am playing along with the Just Add Ink challenge.

This is an interesting combination, see what the design team have made here!

And this is what I have created featuring the Follow Your Dreams stamp set and dies.

I built the background first using the Artisan Textures stamp set. To soften this a little, a Vellum overlay was placed over the top. The panel was added to a Basic Grey card base.

There are lots of layers on the dream catcher.

First, the largest image was stamped in Basic Grey and Die cut.

The additional layers were cut from Bermuda Bay and Soft Suede card stock. These were secured together with a silver brad.

The large feathers were cut from white card stock and Soft Suede ink was added to the ends with a sponge dauber. The smaller feathers were stamped with Bermuda Bay ink on to matching card before Die Cutting and adding to the dream catcher.

The Friendly Expressions stamp set was used for the sentiment which was heat embossed with silver powder.

This was cut with the Pretty Label Punch and adhered with dimensionals. A few silver pearls completed the card.

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

Lisa’s Colour Challenge

Hi Everyone,

Welcome this month’s InspireINK blog hop.

Lisa has chosen a colour challenge. I had to think a long time about this one!

In the end I opted for a grungy style card.

I used the Artisan Textures stamp set, starting with Merry Merlot. This is a strong colour, so I used only a little bit. This later became the backdrop for the sentiment.

Other images from Artisan Textures were used to build up the background. Bermuda Bay first, then Daffodil Delight. The panel was mounted on to a Merry Merlot card base.

Bermuda Bay ink was used to stamp the sentiment on to a strip of white card stock. The Everyday Label Punch was used the shape the ends.

A few rhinestones finished the card.

I hope you enjoyed this project.

The Good Things #GDP143

Hi Everyone,

The Global Design Team have given lots of scope with this week’s challenge!

So in honour of the endless inspiration that the new Stampin’ Up! annual catalogue brings, crafters have been encouraged to love it, live it and share it!

My share is this card using All The Good Things. The lovely fishes reminded me of the pond we had when I was growing up. I also really love using texture stamps so I also included Artisan Textures.

I stamped the fishes first on to a Whisper White card layer. Rather than using a single colour, I combined Mango Melody and Poppy Parade. The ink was applied with sponge daubers.

I picked out a sentiment and stamped this with Early Espresso ink.

Once this was in place, I decided to cut down the panel. I did not measure this, but instead lined up the edge of the image with the edge of the blade guide on my trimmer. This was then added to Pool Party card stock to give a 1/8 inch border.

On a Whisper White card base, I used Pool Party and Coastal Cabana ink to add the “watery” texture.

The fishes panel was then added with dimensionals. To add just a bit of being, three Petal Pink adhesive sequins.

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

Artisan Congrats

Good Morning!

Loving the colour combination on this card today. They are all part of the Neutrals colour family! Following the “Colour Revamp” Mossy Meadow has returned, Night of Navy has moved from the Regal colour family and there is the fabulous new Merry Merlot and Gray Granite!

I have used the Artisan Textures stamp set, (love this set) and combined it with the Lined Alphabet set to create my own bold sentiment.

The letters were stamp first with clear Versamark ink and heat embossed with clear powder.

Each of the inks were used to stamp over the top of the embossed letters, then the excess gently wiped away. This added to the grungy effect.

Gray Granite was used to add some extra texture. The panel was trimmed down and mounted on to black card stock.

Some Linen Thread was wrapped around the bottom of the panel before adhering to the card base.

The additional portion of the sentiment was taken from the Itty Bitty Greetings set. This was also stamped in clear Versamark ink on to black card. This was heat embossed with white powder. This was added to the card using dimensionals.

I hope you enjoyed this project. The supplies used are listed and linked to the online store below.
