Hey Guys!

Go to my video Spot On! to see how that was done & see a version of the background. This time we will be using the Foam Brayer to put the color onto the Folder Winter Snow, then spritz with the Alcohol/Champagne Mist. Second, you will die cut out the window & Snowflakes using the dies that comes from the Snowflake Wishes Bundle. Thirdly, you will stamp your sentiment. And Last you will put them all together to make this awesome shaker card!

A new way to Color!

Hey Guys!

Today I am sharing with you a New (to me) way to color, I have really never liked to color using Markers, it always seemed too…….much. I love to color straight onto my stamp sets using markers, but not to actually color an image once stamped. Stampin’ Blends are my go-to for coloring because they are easy. Moreover, they let you shadow really well, the only problem with Blends is when you use Embossing Powder on your project. For some reason they get muddy when they touch the embossed part. Even though I try to NOT touch the embossed part, inevitably I always do. Here is my card so you can see why I had problems with Blends.

Colored with Markers

As you can see, this is a pretty busy stamp, It’s called Ornate Style, the embossed parts are close together. Now, I could have stamped and not embossed, but I love the way the embossing is shiny and really lets the image stand out. Furthermore, I never thought of blending with markers! So, I used two different colors to make it look like it did when I used Blends. It came out MUCH better than I thought it would, in fact I love it! Now I will have to do this more often! I then sponged the white cardstock with Crumb Cake and then the edges were sponged with Early Espresso.

Also, I used other items from the Suite in the upcoming 2020-2021 Annual Catalog from Stampin’ Up! The dies I used are called Ornate Layers and the other stamp set is called Ornate Thanks & I am in love! Doesn’t everyone like playing with new goodies?! The great thing about this Suite is that you can get it now, (some of the dies are on backorder) and it will be good until the end of the Upcoming catty and possible longer! For those of you who like getting the discount when you order bundles, I will honor the bundle price and give you 10% off your dies when you can order them. Since it will be around a long time, there will be lots of time to create projects using it! Plus, there are a TON of project ideas on Pinterest, you will be kept busy for sure!!

As usual, here are the specifics for this card:

Stamps:
Ornate Style
Ornate Thanks

Inks:
Versamark
Crumb Cake/Early Espresso for sponging edges
Markers: Balmy Blue/Pacific Point, Mango Melody/Pumpkin Pie, Calypso Coral/Flirty Flamingo, Old Olive/Mossy Meadow & Soft Suede for stems

Paper:
Balmy Blue 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″
Night of Navy 5 1/2″ x 4″, scrap for sentiment
Whisper White 4 3/4″ x 3 1/4″

Misc:
Embossing Buddy
Heat tool
Black Embossing Powder
White Embossing Powder
Ornate Layers Dies
Ornate Frames Dies
Noble Peacock Rhinestones
Basic Rhinestones
Wink of Stella
Dimensionals
Stampin’ Sponges

Also, you will find the same supplies listed below in picture form, click on any of them to be taken to my OnLine Store! Purchase $35 or more from me and you will Receive not one but TWO sets of project files with over 50 (combined) tutorials with pictures! Here is a sneak peek of just one set:

Star Wars Birthday card-Punch Art

Hey Guys!

Ever year I make a Star Wars Themed Birthday card, you can see one here, here and here. So, after MUCH thought and stress……(I am NOT a Star War fan myself) this is the card I made this year:

And the inside:

To make this card I used only current supplies from Stampin’ Up!, I took a picture of all the dies all ready to go (except for one triangle that I had to fussy cut to get it the right way).


Funny how this goes each and every year……
I think for MONTHS trying to think which Character I can make, then it gets down to the wire. So, after a lot of research, I finally pick which one I’ll do. It’s trial and error, but it ends up a labor of love. My daughter is going to frame all of them at some point, so I want them to be worthy!
Of course, when Isaac goes to open the card, he BARELY pays attention to the card at all! He is just too excited about the $5.00 I always put inside. Then, my daughter calls him back after he runs off with the cash, and makes him look at the card! hahahaha Eventually, I figure that he will appreciate the effort taken for the cards, but for now I know that MY baby girl loves them! 🙂
Any ideas for me for NEXT year? It’s never too early to start planning!

As usual, here are the specifics for this card:

Stamps:
Wiggle Worm (for Happy Birthday)

Inks:
Memento Black
White Craft

Paper:
Basic Black 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, scraps for all the pieces
Silver Foil 5 1/4″ x 4″, 5 1/8″ x 3 7/8″
Vellum scrap for lined piece on face (black behind it)
Whisper White scraps (I printed the sayings), 3 1/2″ x 4 3/4″

Misc:
Layering Circle Dies – 2nd from Biggest
Layering Square Dies – 4th smallest
Layering Oval Dies – 2nd from Biggest
Lakeside Dies
3/4″ circle punch
Detailed Trio Punch
Coastal Weave 3D Embossing Folder
Metallic Brads
Dimensionals
Sponges

Not only will I mail you a handmade card, BUT you will get not 1 but 2 sets of Tutorials for making over 60 cards!! Can’t beat a deal like that!!
