Beautiful Stained Glass

final

I am so happy that we have the new Stampin’ Blends markers!  They are alcohol based markers that make shading a snap!  The collection can be sold as a whole set, in pairs, or per marker.  There are also color lifters, Ivory, and Bronze colors to make your skin tones easy too!

I wanted to focus on a fun technique this month at club, and used them with the Stained Glass technique.  It’s super simple and yields gorgeous results!

  1. USE the Embossing Buddy!! I usually forget using it, but for this technique, it’s a must.  Rub some on the surface of the vellum.
  2. Next, use Versa Mark and stamp your image on the vellum.
  3. Use a dark or metallic embossing powder to sprinkle on top.
  4. Heat the powder using the heat tool.
  5. Choose your markers that you want to use and color on the BACK side of the vellum.
  6. Adhere your vellum to a light colored card stock.  I used Glue Dots under the wings to keep them hidden.

I also used Washi Tape to keep the sides down and a Glue Dot on top covered by the Fresh Fig bow. I am so ready for warmer weather and pretty flowers! So, you may see a lot of bright colors and flowers coming!  After this cold/flu/sick season….I am done!

Sweet & Simple Daisy Delight

IMG_2365

I am really addicted to the Daisy Delight Bundle!  You can make so many different cards, scrapbook pages, and 3-D projects!  I made this card for my Sweet & Simple class & Card Class at the Cancer Support Community Center that I hold once a month.  A fellow friend/demonstrator here in Frisco showed me a similar card and I had to make my own twist on it!

First, I punched out a Whisper White daisy with the Daisy Punch and placed it aside. Then I used a 2 7/8″ square of Calypso Coral and placed a dot in the center.

CAIE7283

I took my ruler and measured corner to corner.  It was 4″ so I marked lightly at 2″ and then rotated to measure the opposite corners.  I marked that at 2″ to get me close to perfect center.  This way when I punched it, I could see the center.

When you place the Calypso Coral (with dimensionals on the back) on top of the Whisper White, you create a daisy from the negative space.  I placed the Whisper White Daisy on top rotated to may a fluffy daisy.

I then add the beautiful Calypso Coral  Ombre’ Ribbon and matted the daisy with Basic Gray.  I did use Wink of Stella on the center of the daisy.  I stamped off the solid center with Smoky Slate, then followed with full strength of Smoky Slate.  Then toped it off with the Wink of Stella.

Potted Succulents

 

final(12)

I just love the Oh So Succulent stamp set!  There are 30 stamps!!!  And you have to buy the bundle to save $$!  So, the Succulent Framelits are a must!  Look how cute this turned out!

I wanted this to be a sweet and simple layout using the Brick Wall embossing folder!  I first inked up my brayer with Tip Top Taupe on the side where the mortar was raised up.  Then, I placed my card stock into the folder and ran it through the Big Shot.  To create the pot, I used the cupcake bottom from the Cupcake framelits. I added some Tip Top Taupe to a sponge to shade the pot a little bit.

Then, I stamped my images and cut them out!  I used dimensionals on a couple to pop them up.  Some were adhered straight to the card base to give it a 3-d feel. final(13)

I love the Lace Doilies!  One side is Whisper White and the other is Very Vanilla!  Very smart!!  Lastly I added the sentiment from Flourishing Phrases and a tousle of linen thread to add a little whimsy. (Yes a little Wink of Stella clear too!)

We are headed to On Stage this coming weekend!  You know that means sneak peeks are coming!  I CAN’T wait to see the new catalog!  Stock up now on your 2015-2017 In Colors!  They will sell out first on April 10th!  The retired list is coming!!  Be sure to get online credit!

I can’t believe how easy this was to make!  I was frantically searching for a technique for my November Clubs!  My upline showed me hers version. So, here it is!  Packing Tape Glitter technique!

final-1

  1. Pick a punch or a framelit die to use as your cut out.
  2. Put the packing tape on the back of the cut out with the sticky side facing the front of the card.  Trim excess.  She used a square layer behind her circle for easier adhering of the packing tape.
  3. Take Dazzling Diamonds and sprinkle on top!
  4. Choose your favorite DSP for the background. Put the tape on the DSP to adhere to the cut out.  The snail/fast fuse will not adhere to the packing tape.

Love it!  And now there is a new product coming out!
