INCOLOR ROSES WITH TO A WILD ROSE!

I shared a few cards with you last week using the To A Wild Rose bundle. (Head back a few posts if you missed them). I can now share these cards with you. These are using the new 2019-2021 Incolors. 

2019 Stampin' Up! Incolors

On each incolor card mat I embossed that with the Layered Leaves Embossing Folder.  For the roses I stamped the outline in the Incolor and the partly detailed flower stamp inside to fill the rose.  If you are having trouble lining up the stamps be sure the check the helpful tip further below.

The leaves are stamped with Granny Apple Green for the outline and Pear Pizzazz for the inside of the leaf.  I used the leaf that has the stem on it.  There are 3 leaf stamps so you have a number of options.

Here is a closer look at each one.  You are probably familiar with the new Incolors by now.

To A Wild Rose

Rococo Rose

What’s your favourite?

The Wild Rose Bundle includes the To A Wild Rose stamp set and the Wild Rose dies.  I love the stitched shape for sentiments.

TIP: Check the image below to show how to line up the stamps.  I did share this in a post last week but if you missed it I thought I would share it again.  Just mark the back of the stamp in the same position.  When you stamp each one place this mark in the same position each time. This will make it much easier to line up.

ACCENTED BLOOMS WITH WATERCOLOUR PENCILS!

Yesterday I showed you a card with the Accented Blooms set with the flower image coloured with the Stampin’ Blends.  Pop back a post if you missed that one.  Today I have another one similar but this time I have coloured it with the Watercolour Pencils and gone over it lightly with the Aquapainter to blend the colours.

This time the image was stamped with Stazon on to Shimmery White card.  This card is thicker than regular Whisper White and will take the water.  There is only a very little amount of water used with this so you could possibly use the Thick Whisper White but I rather keep it to the Shimmery White.  Also, it’s nice getting the little sparkle from the paper.  Once the image was dry from watercolouring it was adhered to a piece of Rich Razzleberry card that had been embossed with the Layered Leaves Embossing Folder.  Then this was adhered to the Thick Whisper White card base.

The sentiment was stamped in Pumpkin Pie and punched out with the Tailored Tag Punch then raised up with Dimensionals.

What do you think of this version?  I will show you some completely different cards with this set next.

Thanks for stopping by today.

ACCENTED BLOOMS WITH STAMPIN’ BLENDS!

I have been creating with the Accented Blooms set recently.  I have a few to share with you over the next few posts.

Let me show you the first one.

The image was stamped in Memento Black Ink onto Thick Whisper White card.  Both a must when you are colouring with the Stampin’ Blends.  I used a number of the Stampin’ Blends to colour the image.  I still have much to learn with colouring but I was happy with this attempt.  The sentiment was stamped on Pumpkin Pie card and punched out with the Tailored Tag Punch.  I sponged a little Pumpkin Pie ink around the edge. 

To assemble the card I embossed a piece of Rich Razzleberry card with the Layered Leaves Embossing Folder. The strip of paper is from the Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series Paper pack and I added some of the Rich Razzleberry Velvet Ribbon around the pieces before adhering them to the Thick Whisper White Card.  The stamped piece was raised up off the card with Dimensionals. Just to finish add an Artisan Pearl embellishment.

Tomorrow I have another card for you similar to this so be sure to stop by.

ANIMAL OUTING “SELFIE” CARDS!

With a new catalogue very soon I don’t often like to share projects with new products quite yet.  You know, there are still so many lovely products that we have in our current catalogue to use.  BUT, well I had to make this card – and share it with you right now.  It’s just such a cute set I couldn’t help myself.

This new set is the Animal Outing set.  So darn cute! And it is nice to see some Aussie animals.  So these animals had to take a selfie. 🙂

I stamped out the images and then coloured them with the Watercolor Pencils.  For the sky (which I think could have been a little darker on looking at it now),  I lightly brushed over a clear block with the Aquapainter to wet it, then coloured on the block with the Pacific Point pencil.  Then picked up the colour with the Aquapainter and washed over the background. I have to say these were the second images I coloured.  For the first ones I coloured the images then the background with the Pacific Point pencil and lightly and washed over it. I wasn’t happy with how streaky it looked.  So I redid the whole image. For the second time I coloured the sky first before the animals so I didn’t waste all that time … 🙂

Just a tip too when colouring:  Lightly colour your images first with your chosen colour and lightly brush over with the Aquapainter.  Leave it to dry and then go over parts of the image with the pencil adding highlights.  It is much more effective.   Also, Shimmery White card is the best for watercolouring I think.  Watercolor Paper can be used but it is a lot more textured.

From another piece of card (9cm x 10cm) I cut a square from the centre using I think the 3rd largest square Framelits from the Layering Squares Framelits.  I adhered the coloured piece behind it.  On a card mat ( I used Pumpkin Pie on one and Old Olive on the other) I embossed those pieces with the Layering Leaves Embossing Folder.  Tie around some Linen Thread and adhere this to your card base.

OK,  I will get back to some of the awesome current products we have – and they are retiring very soon.

Hope your weekend is going great and you are having time to create.

TOP 5 FAVOURITES FROM THE 2017 CATALOGUE!

I have had the 2017 Stampin’ Up! Catalogue for a few weeks now.  That’s one of the bonuses as a Demonstrator. 🙂  I thought I would share with you my TOP 5 FAVOURITES from the Catalogue. Yes narrowing it down to just 5! 🙂

Here they are:

1. 2017-2019 Incolors (p184). How can you go past this year’s Incolors.  I will have a separate post just on the Incolors but they still had to get a mention here in the TOP 5 count.

The colours are just gorgeous but I think my favourite colour is Lemon Lime Twist.  It is so bright and fresh and I think gives life to the other colours.

2. Colorful Seasons Bundle.(p146-147). $92.50AUS I have had so much fun already with this bundle.  I think you will love this.  The images in the stamp set are so versatile and the sentiments are so inspirational.  Watch out for more creations with this Bundle.

3. Happy Birthday Gorgeous.  (p76-77) $64.75.  Lots of cute flowers and leaves in this stamp set with sentiments in a beautiful font.  Mix and match the images to create your projects.  The Happy Birthday Thinlit is a  great addition for your Big Shot diecutting.

4. This Little Piggy. (p48) $49 W  $33 C AUS  This cute set had to get a mention.  The “Three Little Pigs” Nursery Rhyme was such a favourite with my children ( and maybe me …)  I have to get this set. Those piggies are so adorable.

 

5. Layered Leaves 3D Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. (p211)  $16 AUS  I will be interested to try this Embossing Folder when I get it next week.  These Dynamic Embossing Folders have a deeper, more 3D appearance. (if you remember the Cable Knit folder recently??).  

 

So there is my Top 5.  What are your favourites??

Want to see a fun Stampin’ Up! video showcasing the great products?

 

Thanks for stopping by,

Be back soon to tell you all about the Incolors.
