Wednesday’s WOW! #143 – How to create Luminescence to your “lights”.

Here’s a different effect for your Baubles or Ornament type stamps to give that glow (luminescence).

Stamp them on a coloured card rather than white. Then with a Sponge Dauber and White Ink add a little white over them. This would work well with Embossed images preferably. How cool!

While I’m not showing you here how to do it you can see the effect.

This particular project uses the Family and Friends stamp set.

Hope you get to try it yourself.

Happy Stamping,

On Saturday I was at the local Doll, Bear and Craft Show. While there was a lot of doll and bear lovers I spoke to a number of crafty people. It’s always great chatting with others.

I had a card for everyone to make if they wished to join me. I thought I would share the card with you. This one is using the Cottage Wreath Stamps and Dies.

I love with the wreath stamp you get those colour variations. There was a version with Garden Green colour too. On that one we stamped the leaf on the background of the card. Also some flipped the paper over and had the lovely red print for the Garden Green base card. That looked really great too.

This Cottage Wreath Stamp Set is suitable for different occasions whether it’s Christmas, Halloween, Thanks. The Country Wreaths Dies have varying wreath dies which look great layered together.

Another card with the Adventurous Journey. I have loved this stamp set. Really! It’s a great one for the boys cards – or the adventurer.

I have used the Celebrate Everything Designer Series Paper which is an awesome pack of paper. It is a Host Rewards item from the current Mini Catalogue that you can redeem with your orders. It has paper suitable for Christmas, birthdays, Halloween even but suitable for lots of occasions.

The kayaker was coloured with the Stampin’ Blends.

I have more with this set that I will share with you over time so watch out for them.

I shared a Tunnel card recently. That one was in Gorgeous Grape. I thought I would share another version I made. This one in Melon Mambo.

I used the gorgeous Hues of Happiness Designer Series Paper. You can’t go wrong with that paper. It is gorgeous. I know, I already said that but it is. 🙂

Also used for this card was the lovely Happiness Abounds Bundle (Stamps and Dies).

You can see the Gorgeous Grape version. And you will also find the video and the measurements on that post too.

Wednesday’s WOW! #135 – Diecut those paper images!

Stampin’ Up! are clever. A big appeal with Stampin’ Up! is the co-ordination and it is not just with the colours. The tools work with the other products too.

Have you noticed? Many dies available in a suite can be used to diecut the images on the Designer Series Paper. No snipping with scissors for many of these.

I discovered this with the Blossoming Happiness Dies on the flowers of the Hues Of Happiness Paper. And it is not just the larger flower. It is also with the smaller flowers and the leaves.

Check it out below.

I had started cutting these with scissors and then discovered this little gem so just had to share with you.

Have a happy Wednesday,
