BY THE BAY WITH PENCILS!

I have been playing with the Sale-A-Bration set By The Bay. Have you noticed it in the catalogue? It hasn’t had much of a showing on blogs and Pinterest that I have seen. This is actually the first card I made with it although I shared a card in the last post.  This one I have coloured with the Watercolour Pencils.

Firstly, you need to stamp on Shimmery White card or Watercolor Card with Stazon Ink when watercolouring.  I prefer the Shimmery White as it doesn’t have the texture on it.

Take your time when colouring.  Lightly colour an area and wash over it lightly with the Aquapainter to smooth out the colours then let it dry.  It doesn’t take too long to dry but once it is then you can go back and add some more colour to intensify the area or add highlights.

I have to say I am no expert at colouring and I am learning a lot as I go.  Picking what colours to use is always hard.  I coloured most of it and left the wall and the path/wall to last as I wasn’t sure what colour to use.  The path was Ok in the grey but I am not really happy with the wall.  I did try lifting some colour off but was starting to mess it up SO … you just have to go with what you have. Right?? 🙂

For the sentiment I stamped that on white card and cut it with one of the dies in the Bottles and Bubbles Framelits and cut a larger one in black with the larger die.  I think I have to use these dies a little more often for these small sentiments.  They are just the right size.  I coloured a Rhinestone with a Black Sharpie as I wanted a black embellishment.

To put the card together I cut the Thick Whisper White in Portrait orientation.  So cut down the length on the narrow side (10.5cm or 4 1/4″).  Score at the half way point on the long side (14.8cm or 5 1/4′).  Cut off 3cm or 1 1/4″ on the bottom edge.  On the inside of the card I stamped the seagulls twice across the bottom.

BIRTHDAY CHEER WITH THE STAMPIN’ BLENDS!

I have another card for you using the Birthday Cheer Bundle.  This was another card we made at class last week.

Some tips to make your own.

Firstly, cut the White card piece with the Rectangle Stitched Framelits die before you stamp. Then you know where to stamp your images.

The images need to be stamped in Memento Black ink so it can be coloured with the Stampin’ Blends.  The smaller sentiment is stamped on  a strip of Mint Macaron.  Rather than flag the ends of the strip or punch it with a Banner punch or a die I decided to keep it straight and wrap some of the Nature’s Twine around it.

On the Rich Razzleberry card mat first stamp your images in Razzleberry ink on the card and then run it through the Big Shot with the Subtle Embossing Folder.  It adds just a little texture to the card.  I really love this folder for creating the light texture. I think it gets missed in the catalogue.

The Birthday Cheer Bundle and the Subtle Embossing Folder are now available in my store now -> HERE.  Please use the Host Code: Q6XB6QR6  OR you can contact me directly.

Thanks for your order.  I appreciate each and every one of them.  Be sure not to mark your order anonymous or I won’t be able to send you out  your small gift.

Thanks for visiting.  I am off this weekend to the huge Craft Alive show. I am holding a booth there with 3 other wonderful demonstrator friends. It has been months  and months of planning and work.  I am exhausted already to be honest but I hope it goes well.

I will tell you more about it next week.

Have a great weekend,

Jenny

HAPPY 10 YEARS WITH STAMPIN’ UP!

Tomorrow (Tuesday), I celebrate 10 years with Stampin’ Up!.  It’s pretty crazy really!  It’s been a wild ride I have to say with lots of creating, travelling to fun events and “meeting” many amazing people here and from all over the world.  I have many customers who have been with me nearly the whole time and some blog readers here too.  I have to say a HUGE THANK YOU for sticking with me. ❤

It still amazes me what you can do with ink and paper and I am continually learning new techniques and ideas.  10 years ago I threw myself into this journey having no idea what I was doing – and still don’t half the time, but I keep going and I hope that I inspire you along the way. Stampin’ Up! has given me a greater confidence in myself to try new things and to believe in myself that I can create. 🙂

I appreciate each and every one of you whether you have been with me for 10 years or 10 days.  Thank you for sharing this ride with me.  I love sharing my creations and ideas with you. Creating is such an important part of our lives.  So keep creating and I hope you continue on this ride with me.  To many more years of creating! 🙂

So to celebrate my 10th Stampin’ Up! Birthday, I am giving you the gifts.

Well I am giving one away this week.  I am really excited to be able to do this. 🙂

OH SO ECLECTIC FRAMED WITH STITCHED LABELS!

I mentioned the Stitched Labels Framelits 2 posts back.  Ooh! I am in love with these.  I am sure you will love these.  I have used the Stitched Shapes Framelits so much and these will be a nice addition.  So I was playing with them again over the weekend.  With these cards I used the “old” set Oh So Eclectic.  And oh! another new love – Gorgeous Grape!!

Here are the cards.

I kept the layout the same on both.  This first one is in Lovely Lipstick – one of the new Incolors.

The “stitched” background was cut with one of the dies in the set on a smaller piece of card than the card base.  I did that twice. Once at the top and then at the bottom.  The white card was cut with one of the ornate frame dies and the flower and leaves stamped from the Oh So Eclectic set was raised up on this.  The sentiment is from the stamp set and stamped on Granny Apple Green card and cut with one of the label dies.  A little Silver Thread was wrapped around and adhered on the back of it.

The Gorgeous Grape card was created in a similar way.  Under the white diecut frame I added a piece of Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper that I had flagged the ends.  I stamped 2 flowers from the Oh So Eclectic set.  The outline was stamped in Gorgeous Grape and the inside was stamped in Highland Heather another new colour.

Here are the Stitched Labels Framelits.  How nice are they???

It has some great dies for the sentiments and a few little ornate ones.  The line ones I mentioned in the previous post.  I found it helpful to use the rubber mat for the top plate in the Big Shot to reduce the line from the edge of the die.  I will be using these dies a lot I think.  You need these dies. 🙂

These are available in my store -> HERE now.  $57 AUS  Please use the Host Code: FRS6ZZ6G

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.
