How to make a Quick and Easy Waterfront stamp set card

The Waterfront stamp set in the Occasions Catalog is simply amazing. It really doesn't look like much in the catalog, but its one of the easiest and most VERSITILE stamp sets that I've ever used!

This really makes beautiful scenery cards with little to no effect. The separate stamp images can be used in so many ways to create any setting you can imagine. There is water, mountains trees, sky, cottage, sun/moon, splatter and a variety of verses.

I almost didn't buy it, but once I saw all the amazing cards that people were creating with it, I had to get it for myself.

This is a simple card that we made at Kim's Card Class. The ladies loved it! We made 3 cards each of this same design and it literally took all of 10 minutes.

When you find yourself in need of a masculine card, this set is absolutely perfect for that too. You can use it in so many ways, beach, woods, mountains etc.. so you never have to make the same scene twice!

I stamped the mountains in crumb cake ink, twice, and over lapped them. It actually gives them more depth to overlap. The trees and grass are in tranquil tide ink, and the water is soft sky and marina mist. The log cabins are stamped in chocolate chip ink as well as the verse.

For the sun, I used so saffron, then I punched it out with the 3/4 " circle punch and used a sponge dauber dipped in peek a boo peach ink, to sponge around the outside of the circle. Its difficult to see in the photo, but I added some clear Wink of Stella to the sun and water to add shimmer.

The background paper is from the new True Gentleman designer paper in the Occasions Catalog. It has the perfect colors and patterns for a masculine card.

I'll be designing with this set a lot more- can't wait to make a beach scene!

Until the next time...

Stampin Up: Apron of Love Bundle

This is the most adorable stamp set. I remember years ago when I first joined Stampin Up, I made an Apron card from scratch and it was published in the Stampin Up Idea Book. This stamp set, brings back all those memories for me.

I paired this set with the Tutti Frutti designer paper, because the fruits, colors and patterns were perfect for an apron card!

I also used one of our white doilies, but I sponged over it with a sponge brayer and night of navy ink. It looks just like denim! This card was fairly simple because most of it was die cut with the coordinating Apron Builder framelits. *see product list below.

The gorgeous ribbon is the new night of navy Corduroy Ribbon. Its so soft and pretty.

IMG_0280

I attached the utensils behind the pocket with a few mini dimensionals as well as the apron strap die cut. The night of navy and lemon lime twist circles were punched out with the 2 and 2 1/4 inch circle punches.

I attached the tongs inside with the fine tip glue pen.

Looking forward to using this stamp set and dies many, many more times in the near future.

Stampin Up Bunny- Sweet Little Something stamp set

 

I was using my new Stampin Up Stamparatus tool (coming in June, if you didn't reserve yours early) and the Bunny from "Sweet Little Something" stamp set was the perfect 3 step stamp to practice with.

This bunny looks so real! I was in the mood to make something soft and sweet. So a baby card using pink pirouette and crumb cake inks and cardstocks was the perfect combination to go with the darling bunny stamp.

IMG_0363

I stamped the bunny in sahara sand, crumb cake and early espresso inks. It almost looks like I can feel the fluffy stuffed bunny's fur. It looks so soft and realistic.

I layered the bunny on a circle that I cut out with the Layering Circle Framelits in whisper white and pink pirouette cardstock. A doily was added to give the card dimension and texture as well as using the Cable Knit emboss folder in the background.

IMG_0364

A crumb cake ribbon and pink pirouette Enamel heart give the baby card a special touch. I used the verse from the Layering Love stamp set. I thought it was perfect for a baby card.

IMG_0365

Don't forget the inside... a tiny heart border in crumb cake ink.

Brusho Butterfly

Here's another Brusho creation with the Beautiful Day stamp set. This set was designed to perfectly pair with the Brusho dyes.

I posted the flower from the Beautiful Day stamp set that I made with the red Brusho powder and today I'll share the butterfly from the same stamp set. I used the blue and yellow Brusho this time around. I paired those colors with the lemon lime twist, night of navy and watercolor paper.

IMG_0117

I first sprinkled the blue and the yellow brusho on dry watercolor paper. I then spritzed it heavily with water from about 8-10 inches away, until the paper was fairly wet all over. I wanted the colors to blend well, so I made sure to spritz it well. Instead of letting it dry on its own, I took a paper towel and layed it flat on the paper and soaked up the excess water. I then dried it with my heat tool for about 20 seconds.

IMG_0044

I then cut a 3'' x 3 3/4" piece from this piece of watercolor paper. I embossed the butterfly over it with white emboss powder, and added a few Glitter Enamel shapes and lemon lime twist ribbon.

Its so bright and sunny. I love how the Brusho technique turned out!

I can't wait for you to give Brusho a try! Check out the product list below to view or purchase the supplies used on this card.

Fruit Basket full of Pretty Pineapples

Of course I was eager to get my hands on this adorable Fruit Basket stamp set and coordinating Itty Bitty Fruit punches. I especially wanted to make some cards with the cute little pineapples in this set.

I also used the awesome Tutti Frutti designer paper on this "sweet" little card.

IMG_0150

I used several circle punches, the Myths and Magic glimmer paper as well as the Itty Bitty Fruit pineapple punch.

The Stampin Write Markers in pool party and crumb cake were used to color in the fruit basket.

IMG_0151

I used a utility knife to cut a slit in the basket, to slide the pineapples into.

Its such a bright and cheerful cards - just a fun "hello" to send to a sweet friend.

Magical Day Birthday Card

Today I'm sharing a quick birthday card with the Magical Day stamp set and coordinating Myths and Magic designer paper. There's also a peek of gold embossing on the greeting banner.

IMG_0125

My favorite part of the card is the raised embossing and the shimmer of the designer series paper. I stamped the lemon lime twist cardstock with bermuda bay ink and added sponging around the greeting banner.

IMG_0126

The Myths and Magic glimmer paper adds some fun sparkle to the fun birthday card.

The bermuda bay chevron ribbon adds just the right touch to the knight and shining armour- dragon slayer, birthday card.
