THE DOUBLE LAYER DUO TECHNIQUE + VIDEO!

I recently came across a card idea in a magazine I was reading. I thought it looked cool. I wanted to replicate it with our inks and stamps. So I did! I put together a video for our Friday Flicks for you to see how to create it yourself.

These are the cards. I call it the Double Layer Duo Technique. It’s an interesting twist on the Double Layer Stamping Technique if you have tried that before.

I have used the gorgeous Delicate Dahlias stamp set. This works so well.

For this technique you will want a stamp set with a number of images. I can’t wait to try this with some other stamps.

Here is the video.

The Delicate Dahlias stamp set is available as a free choice for Sale-A-Bration with your qualifying orders over $180 AUD. There are only a few weeks left to grab this.

If you need to place an order and you are in Australia I would love to help you.

Head to my store -> HERE. Please use the Host Code: GS9S4AY9

or you can contact me directly.

I hope you get to make one. Let me know.

Have a great day,

Jenny

BEAUTIFULLY PENNED PAPER WEEK – COLOUR THE FLOWERS!

Another project for you for Beautifully Penned Paper Week.

With the black and white paper prints you can colour the flowers like I have on this card. These were added to a different print of the Beautifully Penned Designer Series Paper.

The card base and ribbon were Pale Papaya but the flowers were actually coloured with the Light Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends. (I think it was the light one anyway). The sentiment label was diecut with one of the Scalloped Contours Dies.

You would have seen the Beautifully Penned Designer Series Paper a lot now not just on my blog here. It is available as a free choice with your orders over $90 for Sale-A-Bration.

Do you need some supplies to get creating? If you are in Australia you can contact me directly to order OR head to my store -> HERE. Please use the Host Code: GS9S4AY9

Don’t forget to add your free Sale-A-Bration choice.

I will see you again with another Beautifully Penned Paper project next post. Have a great day.

WEDNESDAY’S WOW! #125 – STAMP WITH YOUR BLOCKS!

Wednesday’s WOW! #125 – Why not stamp with your clear blocks.

You might have tried this. I have to say I used to do this a while back to create some cool backgrounds but I forgot about it. I was reminded of this from Stampin’ Up! recently.

Use any size block. Try different ones even on the same card.

These project were created by Stampin’ Up! They have used the same stamp set (The Biggest Wish) in other languages too on these card.

Simply tap your block lightly on the inkpad and press on to your card. It will be patchy but that’s part of the fun effect.

If you want a multi coloured effect, ink up part of the block in one colour and the other part in another colour. Or ink it up all in one colour and sponge the edges or other areas on the block. You can lightly spritz the block with water too to give another different effect. Be sure to stamp this on Shimmery White card or Watercolor card if you are using the water.

Have fun with it.

Have a great day,

Jenny

The Daffodil Delight card was created in the video and I showed the unfinished Granny Apple Green/Bermuda Bay.

What one do you like the best? I would love to know. I have to say the Granny Apple Green one is quite striking.

HAND-PENNED CARD SET WITH BASIC BORDERS DIES!

Today I have 5 very simple cards to share with you. I created these as samples for my launch a few weeks ago. I have used the Hand-Penned Designer Series Paper.

They might be simple but let me tell you what they show.

  1. They show a different print of the gorgeous Hand-Penned paper on each card.
  2. They show a decorative edge with a different die from the Basic Borders Dies.
  3. Each card has a different sentiment from the Many Messages stamp set cut with a different shape from the Messages Die.
  4. Each card has co-ordinating ribbon as an accent. The ribbon is the White Crinkled Seam Binding coloured with the Stampin’ Blends. (How cool is it to be able to get matching colours)

To finish I added an Opal Round or an Adhesive Pearl on each one.

I have added a vellum leaf under the sentiment punched out with the Sprig Punch.

Cards in a hurry that’s what they are. Probably the longest part was colouring the ribbon.

Check them out closer.

Mint Macaron

Daffodil Delight

Highland Heather

Cinnamon Cider

Blushing Bride

Very simple but I hope you like them.

Happy Stamping,

Jenny
