Grateful for You

Hello Everyone,

Have you seen the retiring products this year?

Almost everything to make this card us going to retire at the end of May… So if would like to replicate this design, now is the time to order before stock sells out.

The leaves from the Remarkable You stamp set were stamped with Basic Black Archival ink.

Old Olive and Daffodil Delight watercolour pencils were used to add colour to the image, which was then blended with a blender pen.

This was layered on to Chocolate Chip card stock and then on to a Wild Wasabi card base..

The sentiment was also layered on to Chocolate Chip card stock, with a piece of Old Olive mini chevron ribbon in between.

Some Old Olive glitter enamel dots finished off the card.

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

Thanks for stopping by and Happy Stampin’!

Remarkable

Hi there Everyone,

I am really loving working with Stampin’ Blends markers.

I have used more expensive markers in the past and the Blends perform really well in comparison.

Blending is easy because the markers are available as a pair, containing a light and dark shade or buy individually to create your own palette.

There are lots of ways to purchase.

  1. Get the whole set; 12 pairs of Stampin’ Up! colours, bronze, ivory and a colour lifter.
  2. Choose the colours you like to work with. Include a colour lifter to expand the shades that can be achieved with limited colours. Build your collection over time to suit your budget.
  3. Join Stampin’ Up! and add markers to your starter kit. Make up the value with Memento ink and card stock. Until 31st March, you can also add two extra stamp sets to colour with your markers.

View the details of the Sale-a-bration joining offer and the Stampin’ Blends colours available here!

For today’s card I have coloured this lovely flower from the Remarkable You stamp set.

I used the Calypso Coral combo and a little of the light Cherry Cobbler marker for the petals. Old Olive was used for the stem.

The image was cut with a Stitched square framelit and the layered on to some Cajun Craze card stock.

I made the card base with Cajun Craze card stock and added a plain white card layer.

Some white organza ribbon was coloured with the Ivory Stampin’ Blend marker…. Your ribbon can now be whatever colour you want!

The ribbon was looped back and forth and adhered to card base. The stamped square was added over the top with dimensionals.

The sentiment was added to the left to balance the card.

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

Stampin’ Blends

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.

Look out for more projects coming soon.

Thanks for stopping by and happy stampin’!
