Brightly Gleaming Specialty Designer Series paper

Hello friends,

The Brightly Gleaming Specialty Designer Series Paper (#150429) has beautiful copper foil accents on one side and this design has the copper stars. There is a lovely range of designs in this pack.




I stamped “Love, Peace and Joy” with Night Of Navy ink (#147110) onto Very Vanilla card (#106550). These words are from the So Many Stars stamp set (#p150496). For the Designer Series Paper I cut a rectangle which measured 9 x 13.5cm. Then I placed a mark 4cm from the bottom left corner both horizontally and vertically. I then cut from each of these marks to the top right corner, then I attached these 2 pieces to the Very Vanilla card. The cardfront was attached to the Night Of Navy base card (#106577). The stars are cut with dies from the Stitched Stars Dies (#150653), from Copper Foil Sheet (#142020) and Night Of Navy card. The bottom star was attached with Stampin’ Dimensionals (#104430) and I used a Mini Glue Dot (#103683) to attach the detailed star. A Copper Designer Elements accent (#149586) was added to the star to finish the card.

Enjoy your day.

Hello,

These beautiful daisies are from the Daisy Lane stamp set (#c149325).




The large daisy has been stamped twice with Mango Melody ink (#147093) on Mango Melody card (#147013), then punched with the co-ordinating Daisy Punch (#143713). These were assembled with Mini Glue Dots (#103683). The background was stamped with the All Wired Up background stamp (#c149262) using Smokey Slate ink (#147113). I then stamped 3 of the smaller daisies onto the card front, as well as 3 on separate Very Vanilla card (#106550) and fussy cut these. The daisies were then attached with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals (#144108). The leaves, also from the Daisy Lane stamp set, were stamped with Old Olive ink (#147090). “Thank You” is from the Abstract Impressions stamp set (#p147513) and I used Mango Melody ink. This was cut with a die from the Ornate Frames (#150664). The Holiday Rhinestones Basic Jewels (#150457) were used on the sentiment and the centre of the large daisy. The base card and card front are Very Vanilla.


Have a great weekend.



Pigment Sprinkles

Hi everyone,

I have just had a play with the Pigment Sprinkles (#149663). These are watercolour pigment crystals which you just mix with water. You only need to use a very small amount of crystals. There are 6 Stampin’ Up! colours which are Bermuda Bay, Daffodil Delight, Granny Apple Green, Gorgeous Grape, Mango Melody and Melon Mambo.




I used the Gorgeous Grape pigment. I added a small amount of crystals and mixed with water on an acrylic block, then using an Aqua Painter (#103954) to colour the Watercolour Paper (#149612). This was the attached to a piece of Basic Black card (#121688). The base card is Very Vanilla (#106550). The Very Vanilla “Thank You” was cut with the Thank You Die (#146832) and I fussy cut the Basic Black card. The butterfly was cut from the Butterfly Beauty Dies (#148536) and I added Rhinestone Basic Jewels (#144220) to the body of the butterfly. The ribbon is Black 3/8” Glittered Organdy Ribbon (#147897).

Enjoy your day.

So Many Stars Bundle

Hello,

Gold and White always looks so stunning and I love how this card turned out.




I used Whisper White card (#106549), Gold Foil Sheets (#132622) and Gold Glimmer Paper (#146958). The card front was embossed with a retired embossing folder (Softly Falling). I stamped the star and the sentiment on Whisper White card with Crushed Curry Ink (#147087). Season’s Greetings is from the Itty Bitty stamp set (#c150513) and the star is from So Many Stars stamp set. The stars and the detailed cutout were cut with the Stitched Stars Dies. I cut the detailed cutout in half and spread it apart so I could see more of it, rather than the stars covering too much of it.  The sentiment was punched with the Classic Label punch (#141491). The sentiment and Gold star were attached with Stampin Dimensionals (#104430) and the Gold glimmer star on top was attached with a Mini Glue Dot (#103683). The small solid stars come from the detailed cutout and placed onto the cardfront.

Have a fantastic day.

Hi again,

The Wrapped In Plaid 6”x6” Specialty Designer Series Paper (#149596) was attached to the Whisper White Base card (#106549). The Whisper White card front was attached to Cherry Cobbler card (#121681) and the Cherry Cobbler 3/8” Diagonal Stripe Ribbon (#150439) was wrapped around this. The baubles from the Christmas Gleaming stamp set were stamped with Cherry Cobbler ink (#147083) on Whisper White card and punched with the co-ordinating Gleaming Ornaments punch. Merry Christmas is also from the Christmas Gleaming stamp set and I used Cherry Cobbler ink. The holly was stamped with Shaded Spruce ink (#147088) on Call Me Clover card (#146992), then fussy cut.

Crafting Forever

Hi,

I love this sentiment - “crafting forever, housework whenever”. I’m sure all crafters agree with this.




The sentiment and paint brush images are from the Crafting Forever stamp set (#c151231). I used Tuxedo Black Memento Ink (#132708) for the brushes and Daffodil Delight ink (#147094) for the sentiment. I coloured the brushes and pot with Stampin’ Blends. They include Bronze (#144607), Ivory (#144606), Dark Poppy Parade (#146879), Mossy Meadow combo (#148547), Light Night Of Navy (#144036), Daffodil Delight Combo (#144603) and Light Balmy Blue (#148540). This Whisper White card and the Daffodil Delight card are cut with the Stitched Rectangles Dies (#148551). The See A Silhouette Designer Series Paper (#149449) was attached to the Whisper White base card. Stampin’ Dimensionals (#104430) were used to attach the sentiment to the card and Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels (#150457). 

Have a crafty day.

Free As A Bird

Hello again,

The beautiful birds from the Free As A Bird stamp set (#c149468) was another image I had amongst a lot of other unused stamped images which I came across in my clean up the other day.




The image was stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento ink (#132708) on Whisper White card (#106549). The Stampin’ Blends used to colour this image are Balmy Blue Combo (#148544), Daffodil Delight Combo (#144603), Flirty Flamingo combo (#147278), Purple Posy combo (#149566), Light Old Olive (#144574), Dark Real Red (#147934) and Light Crumb Cake (#144582). This image was fussy cut and attached to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals (#104430). The Whisper White cardfront was stamped with the Birch Background stamp (#c149256) using Crumb Cake ink (#121685). “Birthday” is from the Perennial Birthday stamp set (#c151240) and stamped with Real Red ink (#147084). This image is actually “happy birthday” but I wasn’t wanting to stamp that, so when I inked the stamp I covered the word happy to avoid getting ink on it. I removed the paper before stamping and was able to stamp Birthday without a problem. A post it note is great for doing this. “Happy” is cut with a die from the Merry Christmas To All Dies (#147912) from the Real Red Glimmer Paper (#150427) and glued to the card with the Fine-Tip Glue Pen (#138309). The base card is Real Red (#106578). 


Have a great day.
