Bird Banter and Petal Palette Love Card

I playing with some different for my products today, Bird Banter stamp set from Stampin' Up! is a set I received at November 2017 OnStage and is not a set I would by for myself, but these adorable Budgies lend themselves perfectly to the Stampin' Dreams Love Blog Hop. I added the sentiment from the Petal Palette stamp set which suited these images perfectly.


I stamped all the images in Momento ink and coloured them with Stampin' Blends in Olive Olive, Daffodil Delight, Night of Navy, Smokey Slate, Pink Pirouette, Rich Razzleberry and Cherry Cobbler. I filled some of the background with the Light Pool Party Blends and blended it out further with the Colour Lifter to create to faded out look. I added two chipboard outline hearts from the Hearts and Stars Elements to add some texture to the card and as a sparkly touch of Wink Of Stella to all the hearts. I added 2 layers of paper from the Tutti-frutti Paper Stack.

Heartfelt Blooms Sympathy Card

I recently has the sad need to make a sympathy card for my neighbour. My Motto when making these cards is keep it simple. I used the Heartfelt Blooms stamp set from Stampin' Up! that you can earn during Sale-a-Bration 2018. Its a Distinktive stamp which is a new style of Red Rubber stamp and I was ample to stamp this Rich Razzleberry image with is one stamping.


Since I had such a perfect image I didn't want to stuff up the sentiment also from the Heartfelt Blooms stamp set. I used my coming soon in the 2018-2019 Annual Catalogue Stamparatus to line it up just perfectly. I have the photos below to show you what I did.

I placed my stamped card in the corner of the Stamparatus along with the image sheet from the Stamp-a-ma-jig/or piece of Window Sheet to test out my lining up before I committed to it on the card with ink. 

Stamp-a-ma-jig Image sheet over the stamped image

Stamp on the image sheet to try out positioning. Move the stamp wipe of image sheet and try again if you are not happy with where you will be stamping.

When happy remove image sheet, ink up stamp and stamp on paper

Petal Palette Bundle with Petal Passion Paper Card

I was inspired to make this card using the Petal Palette Suite from Stampin Up! by one of my favourite crafters Amy Rsavy. When I saw her card I thought I have a great stamp set to CASE that card. Who can go past embossing and water colouring with vellum and a touch of copper?


The flowers are clear Heat Embossed on Watercolor Paper and watercolour washed with Melon Mambo and Old Olive inks with an Aqua Brush then die cut with the co-ordinating Thinlits. I stamped and Copper Heat Embossed the sentiment onto Vellum and added it to a piece of Petal Passion Paper and wrapped some of our copper thread around it to tie it all together.

This card part of a Blog Hop for a Demonstrator Group that I am a part if

Stampin Blends Artwork by my Son

Many of you may or may not know my son (Mr 13) is quite talented artist and has been dying to use my Stampin' Blends from Stampin' Up! thanks to copious amounts of You Tube art videos he has watched. As all good and protective crafter do I shared my wisdom of using them and got the teenager look. They all survived experience to tell the tale of their next project!!!!!



My Son sketched this Billy Connolly look a like in pencil and then filled in the ring the pairs of blends colours. He then added extra shading and the outline with a dip pen and ink.

I cannot draw to save my life but I really do adore that I can share my SOME of my supplies and knowledge with him.

True Tailored and True Gentleman Masculine Card

Yesterday I had time to just play with some of the Stampin' Up! Occasions Catalogue Products. I ended up making 4 cards. I desperately need some masculine cards so grabbed the Truly Tailored Bundle and matching True Gentleman aper and made this card.


I loved getting out my Tranquil Tide card stock again and really love it paired with colours in the True Gentleman Papers . I am a huge fan of the NEW Tailored Tag punch and wanted to showcase it by punching the patterned paper with it. I stamped the sentiment with Crumb Cake and Night of Navy Stampin' Write Makers for a multi coloured look on Very Vanilla card stock and flagged the ends using the Triple Banner Punch. The card base in Crumb cake to pull it all together for a striking masculine card.

Lift Me Up, Happy Birthday Gorgeous with Up & Away Thinlits Card

That card is one of the reason why a little quiet in November. I used a mix of current and retire Stampin' Up! stamps for my youngest son's Year 6 Graduation. The Current stamp sets I have used are Lift Me Up and Happy Birthday Gorgeous with Up & Away Thinlits. The theme for there Party was Circus/Carnival. They all had a Wonderful Night.

 

The Stampin Up! colours I have used are Pacific Point, Tangerine Tango, Real Red, Crushed Curry and Soft Sky.

This card isn't too fancy but has lots of images and fun colours and some simple dimension to add some interest. The 2 retired stamp sets I used are Feeling Sentimental and Carousel Birthday.

As you know the Stamparatus - stamp positioning tool is coming and would have helped me so much and made the task of mass producing 90 of these. It will be available in the upcoming Annual Catalogue. But will be using it in my classes starting this weekend. So come join in and have some fun.

Amazing You with Celebrate You Thinlits Card

I am sharing today my first card using my NEW 2018 Sale-A-Bration and Occasions Catalogue products as well the Stamparatus from Stampin' Up! I was so happy to have time after Christmas to get stuck into playing with all the beautiful products to participate in this Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop. I have used the Amazing You Stamp Set which you can earn FREE during Sale-A-Bration for a $90 spending well as the coordinating Celebrate You Thinlits that can earn with a $180 spend. I also used the stamp set from the Lots of Happy Card Kit to create ate the back ground effect with the Stamparatus.



I created the repeat stamping in the background using the Hinge Step Technique using the Stamparatus which will be available in the upcoming Annual Catalogue. The removable plate on the Stampatartus enables you to repeat stamp the sentiment down the side of the card without moving the paper, only moving the plate. It is really quick and easy and the effect on this card is perfect as it stamped in VeraMark for a subtle watermark effect.



The flower from the Amazing You stamp set is stamped in Crumb Cake Ink into Whisper White cardstock and coloured using Pink Pirouette Stampin' Blends. I really loved having the detail in the stamp to help guide where the shading needed to be added. I cut this out and added to a Vellum Stitches Shapes Framelits circle that I had stamped using the same stamp in Pear Pizzazz ink. Celebrate is cut in the Big Shot as well using the Celebrate You Thinlits also in Pear Pizzazz cardstock. The Let's stamp is also from the Amazing You stamp set that I matched to the flower with Pink Pirouette cardstock and Ink, punched with a circle punch. I added Wink of Stella to both Pink elements for a final touch.
