SIMPLE AND AVID DAISY LANE!

I wasn’t sure about these cards and I’m still not but you know I am showing you anyway because sometimes things don’t always go right.

For these 2 cards I wanted to use the Daisy Lane to make a card for #simplestamping which is a big focus of Stampin’ Up! at the moment but then step it up a little for a Casual or avid stamper.  

Firstly to define the two.  Simple stamping is for those just starting out with limited supplies and putting together a card with card, ink and stamps.

A Casual stamper is one who likes to make a card semi-regularly you might stay.  They are starting to collect a few more supplies and is using more involved steps and techniques.

An Avid Stamper who is one that you could say is “obsessed”.  They collect all the tools and stamps and will create very regularly.

Who do you say you would be??

We have a card more for the simple stamping first.

This card is not quite one layer.  There is the Rich Razzleberry card base and Petal Pink card mat.  The sentiment is from the Beautiful Day stamp set with the little flourish from A Big Thank You.  So there is more than one stamp set that you would normally use on a simple card for someone who has very limited supplies.

We have the next one which is for the Casual/Avid stamper. 

This one has a couple of more layers.  Using the same stamp sets though.  Adding the extra elements gives it a little more detail.

I hope you like them. As I said I am still not sure about them and the lighting is not great but there they are for you.

Have a great day,

Jenny

BUTTERFLY BLUE WITH BRUSHOS!

I have another card to share with you today using the Brusho Crystal Colours. I shared one yesterday. If you missed it just pop back a post.

This card was created a little differently to the one  I shared yesterday. Let me tell you about it.

Firstly on Shimmery White card you will heat emboss your butterfly.  If you are not familiar with heat embossing.  Rub over your card with the Stampin’ Buddy.  Ink up your image (I used the butterfly from Beautiful Day), with Versamark.  Stamp the butterfly on your card and tip over some White Embossing Powder.  Clear Embossing Powder would work as well.  Heat the image with the Heat Tool to melt the powder.  I LOVE heat embossing.  That is what drew me in to stamping all those years ago.  It never gets old.

With the Aquapainter, wash over the butterfly going outside the lines too.  Sprinkle over the Blue Brusho Crystal – and watch it dissolve and spread.  That’s almost as magic as Heat Embossing.  You may like to add some more Brusho to add more colour or wash over more water.  Just see what it looks like.  Let it dry.

** I made a similar card a little while ago and even did a video back then. (It’s not a great one – still learning in that aspect).  If you want to head back to see that card and maybe catch the video, then head back to this post -> HERE.

To finish the card, I layered it on a piece of the Gingham Gala Designer Series Paper.  Before adhering it down on to the Balmy Blue card mat I tied around some Black Baker’s Twine.  Then added the “friend” from the Well-Written Framelits.

Thanks for visiting,

WEDNESDAY’S WOW! #38 – MAKE YOUR IMAGES POP!!

A quick one for Wednesday’s WOW! #38 today. I wanted to share with you a way to make those images ‘POP’ after you colour them.

The other day I was colouring the butterfly from the Beautiful Day set with the Stampin’ Blends.  I had an idea to add a few dots to it with my White Gel Pen.  I thought it added a little something to the image and thought you might like to see it.

It is a little rough but the idea is something to work with.  What do you think?  Maybe you could try that on a project you are doing?

Anyway, what did I do with this butterfly when I was done?  I added it to a jar that I collected my Lucky Door Prize forms at the show.

Thanks for looking

COLOURING THE SPRINGTIME FOILS PAPER – PART 3!

Yet even more ways to colour the Springtime Foils Specialty Designer Series Paper.  The last 2 posts have shown colouring with the Blends and sponging.  (head back to see those posts if you missed them).  Today’s post is colouring the Foils paper by Swiping ink over it.

I have shared some cards doing this in past posts too.  You can see them -> HERE and HERE. The first one shows a video (as good as it is 😉 ) of inking it up.  You can see it if you dare.  Great timing for our Wednesday WOW! this week as you can go back and review that.

The piece above was actually the piece I inked up in the video in the early post so I thought why waste that.  This time I used the Flourish Thinlits.  The sentiment is from Balloon Celebration.  So pretty and soft that mini Organza ribbon.

On the card above I swiped over Bermuda Bay on to a piece of the Springtime Foils Paper.  It needed a few swipes with it and I will say it can look a bit blotchy and you think “what have I done!!”.  Once you wipe over it with a tissue it smooths it out and looks nice.  Believe me. 🙂  The sentiment is from Beautiful Day again.

So now you don’t have to leave this paper plain (or you can).  How easy is it to colour the paper with ink in different way.

So have you got this paper yet?  I hope so.  You only have until Saturday.  And it’s free too.  Stock up on some card and adhesives and maybe throw in a stamp set that is sitting on your wish list and you are there are $90.  Then pick this paper up before it is gone.  Head to my store -> HERE to order it now.

Thanks for looking,

COLOURING THE SPRINGTIME FOILS – PART 2!

Today, Part 2 of colouring the Springtime Foils Designer Series Paper I will show how you can sponge the paper with ink.

On the striped piece of Springtime Foils paper I sponged over the piece with Pool Party ink using a sponge.  The lower part of the card was sponged darker than up towards the top where that was very light to no sponging.  Once you have sponged the piece just lightly wipe over it with a tissue to remove any ink sitting on the embossed stripes. I adhered some Silver Foil strips behind it before adhering to a Thick White card base.  The sentiment is from Beautiful Day.  I added a small angled strip of Pool Party under the sentiment.  I just noticed that the Rhinestone I put on the sentiment piece has slipped to the corner of the card.  Oops! I will fix that on the card. 🙂

On the next card I loved the colours in a card I saw on Pinterest.

I randomly sponged Pear Pizzazz, Daffodil Delight and Soft Sky over the card then sponged over with a tissue.  I kept the layout the same as the one above layering it on Gold Foil strips this time.

Tomorrow another way to colour your Foils so be sure to check in with that.

COLOURING THE SPRINGTIME FOILS PAPER – PART 1!

The Springtime Foils Designer Series Paper has been HUGELY popular for Sale-A-Bration.  Have you got it yet?  You really have to jump on this THIS WEEK as Sale-A-Bration is coming to an end on Saturday. Here is the gorgeous paper if you haven’t seen it.

For the next 3 posts I thought I would show you different ways you can colour the paper.  Of course it is very elegant and classy just left on it’s own too.

For these cards I coloured them with the Stampin’ Blends.  They glide on so easily.

For the card above I used the Dark Pink Pirouette in the centres and the Light Rich Razzleberry in the edges.  The leaves were Old Olive.  The sentiment is from Beautiful Day and embossed with White Embossing Powder.  I had to finish it with a few loops of Gold Thread.

The card below was coloured with the Old Olive Stampin’ Blends. (Don’t look too closely 😉 )

The coloured piece was adhered to a mat from Gold Foil. I embossed the white piece in the top 2/3 of the Whisper White card piece.  Tying around some Old Olive Mini Chevron Ribbon.  The sentiment is from another Sale-A-Bration set Heartfelt Blooms.  It was all adhered to an Old Olive Card base.

Stop by again tomorrow for Part 2 colouring with the Springtime Foils Designer Series Paper.
