Winds of Change

I have used the beautiful scenery of this stamp set to create this card today. Winds of Change lets you create the most beautiful scenes, I have stamped the image onto a piece of Shimmery White Cardstock and also onto a piece of masking tape and cut the mask out to put it over the stamped image. I then using my blending tool of choice sponged the sky with Balmy Blue Ink. Then I removed the mask and colored my image with the Stampin Up Alcohol Markers. Finally adding my sentiment. Such a simple process but a effective result.

French Countryside

For those that don't like to color and I know there are a few of you I have this card today that I didn't color I used the Pigment Sprinkles. So I used a piece of watercolor paper and experimented with the 6 colors of the pigment sprinkles, leave them overnight to dry. I then stamped my image onto where I liked the looks of the pattern I had created with the Pigment Sprinkles the day before. I then just cut it out with my Rectangle Stitched Shapes framelits and went about to layering my card with some different sized cardstock, vellum, ribbon and embellishments.

Breathtaking Bouquet

I have used the Breathtaking Bouquet Background Stamp on my Sympathy Card today! I started with the base and inside of my card with Melon Mambo, then my first mat is Basic Black, I then stamped the Breathtaking Bouquet Background Stamp onto a piece of Whisper White with black ink. Using my Rectangle Stitched Shapes I cut out the center of the image so I am now left with just a border which I sponged with Balmy Blue Ink. I stamped this piece with Versamark Ink, coated it in Clear Embossing Powder and  heat set it with my heat tool. I then used another piece of melon mambo cardstock and very vanilla cardstock and cut them out with my Rectangle Stitched Shapes Framelits and stamped my sentiment onto the piece of very vanilla cardstock and sponged it lightly with Balmy Blue. Adhered these pieces together with Stampin' Dimensionals and after adding it to the center of my card I also added some Jewel Pearls.
