Marbled Background Stamp Emboss Resist

What a beautiful background stamp this is "Marbled", I have used my versamark embossing ink over the background stamp. I then stamped it on to a piece of Shimmery White Cardstock and using my heat tool and some white embossing powder and then heat set it. Then using a blending tool and my ink pads added some colour to reveal the beautiful marbled effect this stamp does give.

You could just use one colour or a heap of colours with this technique, I chose to use 3 colours. Wisteria Wonder, Soft Sky and Sahara Sand. I have done a tutorial on this technique over on my Utube Channel so make sure you subscribe so you don't miss it.

Postcard Pals Thank You

I have created this card today using the Postcard Pals Stamp Set  and a watercolouring Technique for the Just Add Ink "T" Challenge with my Thank You Card. To do my watercolouring I use my ink refills and a aqua painter from Stampin' Up!®, it opens up a huge amount of colours you have to choose from by using your reinkers. I have also used the Garden Trellis Embossing Folder on one of our brand new colours Granny Apple Green, along with a layer of Gracefull Glass Vellum DSP. I have layered my image onto some Whisper White and Blackberry Bliss Cardstock I cut out with my Layering Squares Framelits. I created my sentiment Thank You by using my 1-3/8" Scalloped Punch and my  1-3/4" Circle Punch.

Postcard Pals Fab Friday Challenge

I have created this card  today for Fab Friday #141 Sketch Challenge using the Postcard Pals stamp set and my new Blends Alcohol Markers from Stampin' Up!®. I found it a real challenge for me following a Sketch Challenge but I am happy how the card finished up. I started off by making my base card with Crumb Cake Cardstock, my first mat on my card is Whisper White Cardstock and I embossed it with the Softly Falling embossing folder. I then chose some Calypso Coral colour from the Animal Expedition DSP and cut out a square using my Layering Squares Framelits and some Granny Apple Green Cardstock. I stamped my image on Whisper White Cardstock and coloured it with my  Blends Alcohol Markers and cut it out before adhering it to my card. I popped up the square on my card with Stampin' Dimensionals and adhered my Crumb Cake 3/8" Classic Weave Ribbon to the left hand corner. I then stamped my sentiment on a piece of Crumb Cake Cardstock and punched it out with my 1-3/8" Scalloped Circle Punch and adhered it with Stampin' Dimensionals to my card.

Hold On To Hope #GDP146 Challenge

This is my card I have made for the Global Design Project Sketch Challenge #GDP146. I have used the Hold On To Hope Stamp Set to create this card, I stamped my image several times onto Very Vanilla Cardstock with my Soft Suede Ink and then using my Stitched Shapes Framelits I cut them out into shapes to form a split image technique. I then cut out some shapes using Soft Suede Cardstock and adhered the stamped image to the Soft Suede using some adhesive. I then stamped my sentiment in the bottom right hand corner of a piece of Bermuda Bay Cardstock which is my top layer to my card using my Stamparatus, added some 5/8" Very Vanilla Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon and tied a false bow to one side using some ribbon from the Tea Room Combo Pack. I then adhered my split images with Stampin' Dimensionals to this top layer and then adhered it to my card.

Animal Outing GDP145

I have created this card today for the Global Design Project #145 Colour Challenge, I have decided to use one of my new Stampin' Up!® Stamp Sets Animal Outing and I absolutely love it already. I really enjoyed the Colour Challenge and it gave me something to aim for. I started with the Fresh Fig Cardstock and embossed it with the Woodlands Embossing Folder, I then took one of the borders from the Delightfully Detailed Laser Cut Specialty Paper and using my sponge brayer coloured it with my Mint Macaron Ink Pad. Then using the Grapefruit Grove Cardstock and my Layering Squares Framelits I made my frame. I adhered these two to my card, coloured my images with my Blends Alcohol Markers and added the Kangaroo with Stampin' Dimensionals to my card and glued my branch and frog to my card which I coloured with Mint Macaron. I then stamped my sentiments and cut one out with my Layering Squares Framelits and layered it to the Fresh Fig Cardstock and then added it to my card with Stampin' Dimensionals. I finally glued the other sentiments and added some rhinestones to my card and added some detail with the Wink of Stella Clear.

Enjoy Life GDP144

I have decided to do a challenge card today for Global Design Project GDP144, check it out and why not join in.  I have used one of the new Stampin' Up!® Stamp Sets "Enjoy Life" and I have made my card a male themed card. I  sponged my whisper white panel with my sponge brayer using Balmy Blue, Petal Pink and Pear Pizzazz Ink Pads. I also used some masking tape to mask off a side panel and once I had  finished sponging removed the masking tape and stamped down the panel using a image from the Enjoy Life Stamp Set. I then layered some pieces of Nature's Poem DSP and added a thin strip border from the Delightfully Detailed Laser Cut Specialty Paper. Using my layering Circles Framelits I cut a piece in Night of Navy and Whisper White, Sponged the piece of Whisper White and stamped my images and then adhered it to the piece of Night of Navy with Stampin' Dimensionals before applying it to my card. Finally, I added my sentiment.
