Inspire.Create.Challenges #123 – Sketch Challenge with Dragonfly Garden

Hello Everyone,

Welcome to my blog today sharing with you my design team project for the Inspire.Create.Challenges blog!

Our challenge this time is to use this card sketch.

See the other design team creations HERE

I chose to use some ink blending to create the vertical panel.

You can see how I made this card in my video tutorial…..

This colour combo reminds of a sunset on a summer’s evening!

The black layer ties the embossing and sentiment together.

This card takes on a completely different look by using these deeper colours. White embossing would look good too!

I hope you enjoyed this project.

Creating Backgrounds with the Artistic Mix Masks

Hello Everyone,

Today’s card project is all about the background. This is so easy to do with the Artistic Mix masks and totally customisable for the needs of the project!

The masks overlay each other to create the design, but could equally be used individually.

You can see how I made this card in my video tutorial….

I added simple sentiments accented with Stylish Shapes die cuts.

This version uses Sahara Sand and Starry Sky inks for a more masculine look.

Which colour combination would you use?

I hope you enjoyed this project.

Using the Heavenly Hollyhocks Bundle

Hello Everyone,

I’ve been itching to use this bundle from the annual catalogue and I’m so pleased with the results!

You can see how I made this card in my video tutorial…..

I used blending brushes to add the ink to the die cuts. Alternatively, this can be done with sponge daubers or markers if you want more control.

Here is the original sample using Tahitian Tide, Night of Navy and Parakeet Party.

Stampin’ Blends can be used to colour basic rhinestones go match the project!

Simple Friendship Card with the Parisian Flourish 3D Embossing Folder

Hello Everyone,

I’m doing something really simple today.

In the same way Designer Series Paper can make a card front, so too can embossing folders.

Today I have embossed Very Vanilla card stock. For a different look, you can use coloured card stock or designer series paper!

The texture created with these folders is incredible to see.

I have emphasized the detail by applying some ink over the top with a blending brush.

You can see how I made this card in my video tutorial….

All that is needed is a sentiment. For this card I used dies as I had the Stampin’ Cut and Emboss Machine out. You could equally use punches.

Some coordinating ribbon completes the card. You can also colour ribbon with Stampin’ Blends, Stampin’ Write Markers or even Stampin’ ink pads!

I hope you enjoyed this project.

One Card, Three Ways with the Art in Bloom Bundle

Hello Everyone,

I am so excited about this new product from Stampin’ Up!

The Art in Bloom bundle includes a stamp set, dies and a hybrid embossing folder!

The products can be used independently or in combination to make simple effective cards.

1. Simple stamping – use the stamps alone and colour them with your favourite medium or the two-step elements in the stamp set! I used Stampin’ Blends for my card.

2. Just emboss – use your Stampin’ Cut and Emboss to emboss your card stock. I’ve used Basic White and added colour with Blending Brushes. Why not try other card stock colours?

The ink picks out the embossed details.

3. Stamp, cut & emboss – easily line up your stamped images with the die and embossing folder. The die sits inside the folder which is specifically designed so that it is not damaged in the process – it’s so clever!

(Do not try this with your other embossing folders)

I raised the die cut pieces up on to dimensionals.

You can see how I made these cards in my video tutorial….

This shows just 3 options, but there are so many other combinations to try!

I hope you enjoyed this project.

Ink Blended Background with the Wild Roses stamp

Hello Everyone,

Have ever wondered how to use background stamps in a different way? Me too!

You can see how I made this card in my video tutorial….

The font in the Happy Thoughts stamp set is so pretty!

Simple Stampin’ with Borders and Backgrounds

Hello Everyone,

It’s all about the stamping for today’s card project.

Here I have used the Borders to Backgrounds stamp set. The colour inspiration is from a just for fun Facebook colour challenge.

The sentiment is from Sweet Ice Cream, but of course this can be swapped for something else in your crafty stash!

See how I made this card in my video tutorial….

Blending over the stamped sentiment ties the design together beautifully!
