Beautiful You The Bride

With this card today I have used the Beautiful You stamp set from Stampin' Up!®, I wanted to extend the lady's dress to make her like a Bride. I am no artist but thought I would give it a try, so just stamped the top of her to her waistline and stamped it on a piece of Very Vanilla then using a fine tip black marker I drew a extended line for her long dress. I then coloured her using my Stampin' Blends Alcohol Markers and matted her onto a piece of perfect plum cardstock and some DSP I had in my stash. I was quite pleased how it turned out. I will be doing a tutorial on how I created this card so make sure you Subscribe to my Channel so you don't miss it.

Lovely As A Tree Christmas Card

I have created today a Christmas Card using the Lovely As A Tree stamp set from Stampin' Up!® and have cut out a frame using Lots of Labels Framelits. I have masked a moon using Eclipse Masking Tape, then sponged the lots of labels shape in the middle of my card. Removed the mask and stamped the trees. Then I sponged using my sponge brayer over the trees using Soft Sky and Pear Pizzazz. Finally adding my sentiment and my lots of labels frame.

Beautiful You All In A Row

 I have used a masking technique to create this card using my Eclipse Masking Tape, I stamped the image on the tape and cut it out and placed the masked image over each lady image when stamping to creating the illusion of 3 ladies in a row. I love this technique and it is so effective, I also masked off the centre of the card before stamping the lady image and using my sponge brayer and my ink pads sponged the centre of the card using Marina Mist, Rose Red and Soft Suede Ink Pads.

Beautiful You Come Fly With Me

I wanted to create something quite different with the Beautiful You stamp set, I absolutely love this stamp set and I use it quite a lot. I masked off the grass on the lady image and stamped her on a angle as if she was up in the air, then I used one of my other stamp sets and used the image of the balloon with the elephant on top. Stamped some clouds and using my Stampin' Up!® Blends coloured all the images and added some Wink of Stella Clear and a Sentiment. I then did some sponging using a dauber and my ink pads to take the starch white look away around the images as I wanted it to appear they were up in the clouds.

High Tide

I have used two of Stampin' Up!®'s Stamp Sets to create this card, High Tide and Beautiful You. Firstly, I used a sponge brayer to sponge the background with my ink pads, then using the sand and the water stamp to stamp over the sponged areas. I also used a dauber to bring in some yellow colour just below the moon. I also using my 1-1/2" circle punch made a mask for my moon using Eclipse Masking Tape. I removed this mask once I had done all my sponging. I then stamped the lighthouse image in Early Espresso and Cherry Cobbler, stamped the birds in Black Ink and added my sentiment. I then stamped the girl image from Beautiful You stamp set and paper pierced her umbrella and dress. Finally stamped in some grass from the stamp set High Tide.

I have created this card for the Global Design Project:

Healing Hugs

I had a play today with this new stamp set Healing Hugs, it is one of the new style stamps from Stampin' Up!® and once I got the knack of it, it just stamps beautifully giving you all the highlights with just one ink colour. This stamp is a Distinktive Stamp Image, I found the more I stamped with it the better the results were. I have also used some of the new Cardstock Colours released in June and am absolutely loving the challenge of creating Colour Combinations with these new colours.

A Good Day

 I have a Thank You card for you today using one of Stampin' Up!® stamp sets "A Good Day". This is such a fun stamp set that could be used for so many occasions and works really well with the matching 1-1/8" and 1-3/8" Scallop Punches. I have also used the 1-1/2" Circle Punch, Blends Alcohol Markers to colour the images and have added some crafting foam behind the Marina Mist embossed mat to lift the whole front of the card so it really pops.

Marbled Background Move The Soul

With my card today I have tried something quite different and I love how it has turned out. I stamped the motorbike image and coloured 3 images with the Stampin' Up!® Blends Alcohol Markers, then using the Layering Square Framelits cut out sections of the coloured images and adhered them to some Early Espresso cardstock with Stampin' Dimensionals. For the background I have used the Stampin' Up!® Marbled Background Stamp and stamped it with my Versamark Ink Pad, applied clear embossing powder and heat to set. I then chose some colours and using my sponge brayer applied the colours to my embossed background. I then applied my square images and a sentiment to the card.
