Something Different with the Friends Are Like Seashells Bundle

Hello Everyone,

I’m trying something different with gorgeous Pearlescent Speciality Paper which has carried over to the 2021 Annual Catalogue!

My original sample using Crumb Cake ink and gives a much more subtle effect.

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.

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

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.

Masking off areas of the cardstock keeps them crisp and white without adding additional layers.

Birthday Card using the Beauty Abounds stamp set

Hello Everyone,

This card has been inspired by the technique used by Ruth at Artful Stampin’… she has loads of videos on creating backgrounds in this style. I hope she approves of the colours I chose!

See how I made this card in my video tutorial…

May SU Colour Challenge

Hello Everyone,

I made this card ages ago and completely forgot to share it!

I have to different ink blending methods to create this project.

I also used the amazing Tropic Chic stamp set which is sadly retiring. To achieve the gradient colour on the leaves, I used the Stamparatus tool, inking and stamping each image twice.

Here is video showing how to create a blended background!

Seasons Greetings

Hello Everyone,

I thought I would share this non traditional Christmas card design with you today.

The colour combination I used is Balmy Blue, Pacific Point, Night of Navy and Rich Razzleberry.

Whisper White card stock was coloured through a decorative mask using Stampin’ Sponges.

Before removing the mask, versamark ink was pressed over the panel. (The ink pad will get stained, so using an older pad might be a good idea).

I applied some clear embossing powder and heat set this to give a shiny design. This was adhered to a white card base.

A sentiment was added using Rich Razzleberry ink.

The stars were heat embossed with silver powder and die cut with the coordinating dies.

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

Silhouette Deer

Hello Everyone,

For today’s card I used a combination of mask and ink blending to create a background.

Using post-it notes, I masked off a section of card stock.

With sponge daubers I applied ink starting with Balmy Blue.

Pacific Point was added next along the top, then Highland Heather along the bottom.

The deer and sentiment were stamped with versamark ink and heat embossed with Shimmer Black powder.

A Stitched Rectangle Die was used to cut the panel. This, was adhered to a card base that had been stamped with snowflakes in Silvery Shimmer Ink.

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

Amazing Bokeh

Good Morning Everyone,

Sometimes I have absolutely no idea what I am going to make…. This project was one of those, but I am really pleased with the result.

This stamp set immediately caught my eye in the new annual catalogue so I started with the stamp. After trying a few ink colours, I tried heat embossing the image.

I then decided to use the emboss resist technique to bring out the detail. The colours I picked out were Balmy Blue, Pool Party and Soft Sea Foam. The ink was applied with sponge daubers.

For added interest, I lightly spritzed the card with water, dabbed off the excess and dried with a heat tool.

The panel was adhered to some Basic Gray card stock and then added to a Soft Sea Foam card base.

Rather than stamping a sentiment, I used the Celebrate You thinlits. These were cut from Basic Black and Basic Gray card stock. For some dimension, “you” was cut three times and glued together.

Finally, some pearl white adhesive sequins were added to the card.

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

Thanks for stopping by today and happy Stampin’!
