Beautiful Day stamps with Painted with Love DSP - Any Colour Embossing Technique

Hi Crafters!

On Friday 20 April, I held a class with the Beautiful Day stamp set & Versamark ink. We made four cards each in the class, each using a different technique with Versamark & then I also made a bunch of samples showing all the different colouring techniques with the different products we have available from Stampin' Up!

We are so lucky to have such beautiful & versatile products! I've used all the different colouring tools as well as the different cardstocks. So get ready for a bunch of butterfly cards! I may have been a bit biased towards using the butterfly for my samples haha! I have used the rose image for the following card, though.

Today I'm showing you one of the cards we made using the Any Colour Embossing technique. First you ink up with Versamark & then don't stamp yet. Ink up on top of the Versamark with your choice of ink colour (I've used Rich Razzelberry) & then stamp your image. Be careful to just go straight up & down with your stamping, as the mix of Versamark & ink will make it easier for your stamp to slide & smudge. Next you cover the image with Clear Heat Emboss Powder, pour off the excess & use your Heat Tool to set it.


You can also just ink up with your choice of colour ink & then go straight over that with Clear Heat Embossing Powder, but the end result will not be as smooth as when you use the Versamark first. But it's still a really pretty look & add a lot of texture to the card.

I have tied Peekaboo Peach Crinkle Ribbon around the card & then secured the fussy cut rose image with Dimensionals. I have coloured the rose with my Stampin' Write Markers in Powder Pink, Pear Pizazz & Daffodil Delight, adding more layers for shadow & depth. I have left the card sentiment free as it's good to have a card like this that you can use for a special message or as a sympathy card etc where words are not needed on the front.

I have entered this card into the Global Design Project 'Show me the Sunshine' theme for this week #GDP135 as sunshine to me means spending time outside in the garden, enjoying all the beautiful flowers.

Sweet Cupcake stamps & Painted with Love DSP - Stamparatus

Hi Crafters!

Today I'm showing you some of the cards I've recently made with my Stamparatus. It was so much fun & once I got the hang of it, I absolutely plowed through the dozen birthday cards I wanted to make.

I chose to use the Sweet Cupcake stamp set as it is a three part top & three part bottom, so there would be a ton of stamping involved to make the dozen I wanted. I only ended up using two of the bottom set, but I used all three of the top icing part & the sentiment & sprinkles in black.


I used Powder Pink cardstock with Basic Black ink for the sentiment & sprinkles. Then I used Blushing Bride, Flirty Flamingo & Melon Mambo for the cupcake. With the Stamparatus, I tried stamping them step by step adding all the colours to the one piece at a time, but I found it was easier to stamp all the bits in the one colour first, then do them all again adding the second colour & so on. I have cut them out using the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies, the second largest circle.
 

I absolutely love all the gold foil in this beautiful Painted With Love Designer Series Paper. I have used the Melon Mambo 12x12" cardstock cut into three 4" pieces & then folding in half at the 6" mark. You can get this cardstock in a Painted With Love cardstock pack with Powder Pink & Calypso Coral in the pack as well. I have added a simple Peekaboo Peach Crinkle Ribbon bow to this card.


For the slightly stepped up version, I have used a different print from the same pack of DSP with a piece of White Glimmer Paper cut with the largest circle & a Powder Pink Finely Woven Ribbon. You really don't need to add much to this delightful paper.


And here's a view of the inside of the card. I've placed the sentiment & a candle in the bottom corner to leave lots of room for a nice message.

Rose Wonder Stamps with Petal Passion DSP

Hi Crafters!

Today I'm playing along with the Global Design Project #gdp134. I have used the retiring products Rose Wonder Stamps with Petal Passion Designer Series Paper (DSP).

If you love these products, then order yours today & don't miss out! They are only available until 31 May or while stocks last & there is so much already selling out! Remember to use my April Hostess Code ZM34NQJ6 & spend over $50 (plus post) to go in my monthly customer draw & you'll also receive a hand made card from me & the gift of the month (Glitter Enamel Dots)! Go to my Online Shop.

The Rose Wonder stamp set has a heap of really lovely sentiments for a bunch of different occasions & also has lovely dies to match, called Rose Garden. I have coloured this beautiful black & white print DSP with my Blends but you could achieve a similar look with Blenders & ink pads, watercolour pencils or Stampin' Write Markers.


I have used Smoky Slate ink to stamp the border & sentiment & then I have Silver heat embossed the sentiment again, slightly off to create a shadow. There is a die to match the border, but I have fussy cut mine. I have added Fresh Fig Finely Woven Ribbon, Silver Bakers Twine, Clear Faceted Gems & a piece of Vellum cut with the Everyday Label Punch.

Stamping Out Autism Blog Hop - Beautiful Day Stained Glass Technique



Hi Crafters!

Today I'm hopping again for Autism & it's a very worthy cause. We are helping to raise awareness & funds for Autism. Please make your way around the hop to see everyone's beautiful projects in honor of this cause.


I have used the Beautiful Day stamp set, which I'm very happy to say is carrying over to the new Annual Catalog. I have Silver heat embossed it on Vellum & then coloured the back of the image with my Stampin' Write Markers in Dapper Denim, Island Indigo, Bermuda Bay & Emerald Envy. This is called the Stained Glass Technique & can also be achieved with the Blends & by picking up inks with your Blenders, although you might only want to do smaller images with Blenders, or you'll be able to see the streaks.


When colouring with your Stampin' Write Markers, be careful to make big sweeping motions from end to end of the segment. This way you'll have less streaking. The Blends are a bit easier to colour with as they don't tend to streak as much, but more pool around the edges. The Blends are currently unavailable until the end of May.


I have fussy cut the butterfly. The background is smeared with Shimmery White Embossing Paste, using the diamond mask from the Pattern Party Decorative Masks. The card base is Pacific Point & so is the Stitched Edge Ribbon. The sentiment comes from the Thoughtful Banners stamp set.
