LADYBUG THANK YOU!

You might have seen the little ladybugs around?? I thought I will share some of the cards I have been making recently with the Little  Ladybug set.

A very simple card but I used the largest rectangle of the Stitched So Sweetly Dies and stamped the lady bug which was then coloured with the Stampin’ Blends. 

The sentiment is from the So Sentimental Stamp set.

The red card mat is embossed with the Layered Leaves 3D embossing Folder with some Whisper White Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon tied around before adhering to the White card mat.  I added a Red Rhinestone to it.

The Little Ladybug set is available as a gift for orders over $500 whether it is your own or together with your workshop.  It’s a cute set.  This is only available for 2 more weeks though and then those Ladybugs are flying away.

I will be back with more cute ladybugs soon.

RAZZLEBERRY FLOWERING FOILS!

Another Flowering Foils card for you today.  This time I have coloured one of the flowers on the flower print paper of the Flowering Foils Specialty Designer Series Paper. 

I used the Rich Razzleberry and the Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends. I love how you get the resist effect with the embossing on the flowers.  The paper is so easy to colour.

To finish the card I used a piece of the Lily Impressions Designer Series Paper adhered on to a white card mat and then on to the Rich Razzleberry card base.

The sentiment is from the So Sentimental stamp set and then cut with the Stitched So Sweetly dies.  On the Rich Razzleberry diecut piece I embossed that with the Layered Leaves 3D Embossing Folder to add some texture.

On the back of the sentiment pieces loop some Silver Thread on to the back and to finish a Rhinestone was coloured with the Rich Razzleberry Dark Stampin’ Blends to co-ordinate.

Both the Lily Impressions paper and the Flowering Foils Designer Series Paper are available as Sale-A-Bration choices but there is only 2 weeks left.  Grab either of these (or any of the other choices) when you shop in my store now -> HERE. 

Have a wonderful weekend,

SPONGING THE FLOWERING FOILS PAPER WITH A VIDEO!

I have mentioned already the gorgeous Flowering Foils Specialty Designer Series Paper.  You have probably seen lots around with it too.  Today I have a card to share with you using this paper and a video to show how you can very easily add the colour to the paper with the sponge rollers.

This card is inspired by a card in the 2nd release Sale-A-Bration brochure (p3)  I changed it up a little.

Here is the card.

Check the video below.

I used the Stitched So Sweetly Dies on the card and the sentiment is from So Sentimental. The card in the brochure uses one of these sentiments too but I just wanted to keep it simple rather than cutting around the sentiment seen on that card.  It does give it a good effect when you do that.

The leaves are from the Birthday Dies.  These are available as Co-ordination products that go with the Happy Birthday To You stamp set also for Sale-A-Bration.

The Flowering Foils Specialty Designer Series Paper is only available for March during Sale-A-Bration (or while supplies last) so you want to grab them soon.  You receive them as your free choice with orders over $90.  Check out my store now -> HERE.

Have fun sponging and colouring this paper.

BEAUTIFUL MOMENTS WEEK – DAY 4 – WHITEWASHED GIRLS!

Day 4 of our Beautiful Moments Week.  This card is a technique I have wanted to try for a while.  I thought this set was a great one to try it.  This technique is known as the Whitewash Technique.  Have you tried it before?

Here is my card.

To create the Whitewash:

Stamp your image on dark coloured cardstock  (Crumb Cake used here) using Versamark and heat emboss with White Embossing Powder.  Using White Reinker, drop 1-2 drops on to a clear block.  Add some drops of water using the Aquapainter and mix the 2 together.  Pick up some white ink with the Aquapainter and paint the image in white.  Allow this to dry completely.  It may take a little time.

Once dry pick up some colour from the inkpads using the Aquapainter. (Be sure to clean the Aquapainter after using the white ink). Paint the image in your colour choices.

To finish the card:

Diecut the card.  I have used the new Nature’s Thoughts Dies.

On a side note: How pretty is this die??  Something a little different to the stitched effect.  Using the decorative die in the Nature’s Thoughts Dies diecut a strip of white card.  Trim to size and then adhere to the back of the Crumb Cake card.

Adhere a piece of the Lily Impressions Designer Series Paper from Sale-A-Bration on to Thick Whisper White card.  Raise up the stamped Crumb Cake card piece off the card using Dimensionals.

Stamp a Sentiment from the So Sentimental stamp set and diecut using the Stitched So Sweetly Dies.  Raise that up off the card.

Hope you get to try this technique.

Be sure to get  your Beautiful Moments stamp set in store but also I think you need to grab the Nature’s Thoughts Dies too.  They will be a great addition.  I will talk more about these another time but see them in store -> HERE.

Happy Stamping,

Jenny
