It is a Colour Challenge over at the Global Design Project this week!
Click here to see what the Design Team created to inspire us!
This combo screamed Christmas!
I have used the Good Tidings stamp set to make a background. The layers are stamped with same colour ink, but the first was stamped off to give a lighter shade. This was mounted on to Cherry Cobbler card stock and then on to a Pool Party card base.
The sentiment, I stamped in Pear Pizzazz and used the Layering Square framelit to cut it out.
I wanted a narrow border of red peeking out from behind this, so I cut this with my trimmer.
Finally, this was added to a Pol Party Scalloped square, and the on to the card with dimensionals.
A small bow tied from Pool Party Shimmer ribbon completed the card.
I hope you enjoyed the project today. Thanks for stopping by and happy stampin’!
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.
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.
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.
I hope you enjoyed this project. The supplies used are listed and linked to the shop below.
This week the challenge is to case the designer Connie Collins. Take a look at what the Design Team made here.
And this is what I made based upon her design.
A Daffodil Delight card layer was stamped using the bee image from the Dragonfly Dreams stamp set and Daffodil Delight ink.
Some black shimmer ribbon was added to the left hand side before adhering to a black card base.
A piece of Whisper White card stock was cut to 2-3/4 by 4-3/4. Three bees were stamped toward the top, which were coloured using Stampin’ Blends. This was added to a slightly larger black layer. This was added to the card with dimensionals.
The sentiment from the same stamp set was heat embossed with white powder and cut to a banner. This was adhered with Fast Fuse adhesive.
To finish off the card, some clear Wink of Stellar was added to the bees’ wings and a few black rhinestones provided a bit of bling.
I hope you enjoyed this project. The supplies used are listed below.
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.
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.
I shared some note cards a couple of days ago which were very popular. So here are some more using some of the papers included in the paper sale which ends on 31st October – so there’s still time to get yours.
These 4 use A Whole Lot of Lovely to cover the card with a simple black sentiment from the coordinating stamp set Lots of Love.
Birthday Memories was used for these cards. I used the same layout as the original post. The sentiments are taken from Happy Birthday Gorgeous.
Here is Pick a Pattern. This is quite a quirky designer paper, but looks great here. The pieces were cut on the diagonal for a different look. The sentiments are taken from Patterns and Pieces and cut and mounted in different ways.
Finally, I used Christmas Around the World. This pack has some very bold designs on one side, but the other side has some more traditional designs which I used on these cards. I teamed this with Foil Snowflakes and a sentiment from Hearts Come Home.
