No Line Watercolor

QTCG0609

I saw the Better with You stamp set in the new Annual Catalog, and I had to give no line water coloring a try! I was having a hard time deciding on a color scheme and my friend suggested the mad bluebird!

I had never heard of them before and he was so cute!!  My water coloring wasn’t exactly no line, but I love how it turned out!

It’s super easy to create!  This will be the technique for club this month!

  1. Use a light color to stamp the image you want to color.  I used Sahara Sand.
  2. Use your aqua painter & ink refills to create the watercolor images
  3. If you want darker shading, wait for the first layer to dry completely.
  4. I did use a Stampin’ Write marker tip to define his eye and beak.
  5. I completed the look with a pearl colored with a black sharpie.

The background of the Balmy Blue is the new Subtle Dynamic Embossing folder!  It turns your card stock into textured in a flash!

Petal Garden Quilt

Quilted Petal

I have always admired people who make quilts!  I have even thought of trying to make one.  But, I need another hobby like a hole in my head! Giggle!!  So, I decided to use the Tailored Tag Punch to make my panels and then I glued the pieces down in a semi-random pattern.  I trimmed off the excess and then ran it through the Big Shot with the Garden Trellis Embossing Folder.

To add extra detail to the sentiment, I used my Rich Razzleberry Marker to make faux stitches.  A little ribbon and it was done (with no Wink of Stella!!)  Shocker!  This is the technique card for stamp club this month.

Quilted Petal 2

Waterfront Silhouette

JHFI6547 (1)

I love when the moon reflects off of a lake at nighttime.  I decided to try and capture that look with this silhouette on water color paper.

Here is how I created this card:

1.      Stamp the moon with Versa Mark and sprinkle with Clear Embossing powder on the watercolor paper.  Heat set.

2.     Start at the top of the watercolor paper using an Aqua Painter and Night of Navy ink and wash back and forth.  I made it darker at the top.  You can go back after one layer dries to add more depth.

3.     I followed up with Perfect Plum to give it the night sky effect. Let dry or heat set.

4.     Run the Basic Grey piece through the Big Shot with the Petal Garden embossing folder. Adhere to the card.

5.     Tie the Basic Grey ribbon to the card.

6.     Stamp your sentiment and cut out with the Stitched Shapes Circle.

7.      Use Basic Black to stamp the mountains and trees onto the watercolor paper.  It must be completely dry.

8.     Then stamp the water with the Night of Navy full strength. 

9.     Go back and add more color wash if needed.  I did stamp some water at the bottom with Night of Navy stamped off.

10.  Adhere to the Basic Black mat piece. Add Dimensionals to the back to adhere to the card.

11.   Use the Dimensionals to pop up the sentiment too.

Delightful Criss-Cross Card

IMG_3020

I am so excited that Stampin’ Up!’s On Stage is around the corner!  I made this card for a Fun Folds SWAP and it was so cute, that I had my club girls make it too!  I used the directions from Splitcoast Stampers under recourses.  Just look up Criss Cross.

I didn’t use the DSP the way it shows in the instructions.  I loved the way it looked with out the DSP.  I used one of my all time favorite stamp sets: Daisy Delight!  I just stamped it twice with Night of Navy ink and punch it out with the Daisy Punch.  I then took the two flower centers and used Daffodil Delight.  TIP: to make the textured center stamp image stand out, I stamped that on in full strength.  I followed it with the solid center, but stamped off the Daffodil Delight on my grid paper.  I used the coordinating Delightful Daisy DSP for the belly band.  The finishing touches were the Night of Navy Gingham ribbon and the Wink of Stella center.

IMG_3022

The insert was stamped with the flower outlines, stems, and leaves.  I used the sentiment from Flowering Flourishes.

This is the last weekend to order the FREE Creative Class to Go! The cards are super cute and all the supplies come in a stamp case with PDF instructions!  Your order for the stamp set/bundle comes directly from Stampin’ Up!

Petal Soft & FREE card kit

XABU9988

I made a very similar card for a dear friend’s wedding.  I loved it so much that I re-made it for a club card for this month!  The Petal Palette stamp set and matching Petals & More Thinlits have been a favorite this past month!

I first stamped the leaf bunch with Pool Party on Pool Party card stock.  I did stamp off on one of the layers to give it a more subtle feel.  Next, I cut out the ornate accent with Silver Foil and layered half of a Doily underneath.  I tussled some Silver Bakers twine behind the flowers after using dimensionals to pop it up.  Look how ornate and elegant the Stampin’ Blends make the colors on the bouquet!  Of course I added Wink of Stella Clear to the flowers!

The Garden Trellis embossing folder was used for more texture behind the flowers.  It was finished off with a sentiment from the Petal Pallet set cut out with the thinlit included.

I just finished the last card for the FREE Creative Class to Go kit!  What is that?  You order the bundle on my website using this month’s hostess code.  Then, Stampin’ Up! send the stamp bundle to you directly.  If you are local-just pick up the cute case that contains your consumable products to make 6 cards!  (3 designs-2 of each).

Pig in a Barn

BDFA5651

This pig in a barn card turned out soooo cute!  It’s also a card that will be featured in my FREE Creative Class to Go this month!  But first, the card!!

I used the Pink Pirouette marker to color the piggy.  I then used Cherry Cobbler for the barn and barn door.  The door is color on color-the ink is the same color as the cardstock!

HBQJ1025 I love the sliders you can cut out with the Big Shot!!

The details of the hardware is spot on!  I cut off the faux ribbon that the hello sign had and replaced it with linen thread.
