Friends Are Like Sea Shells Challenge Card

Click the image to see a list of supplies used in this card.

Just look at how this card shines!! That is all because of the new Stampin’ Up! Pearlescent Specialty paper. The Sand and Sea Suite can be found on pages 40-42 of the new mini catalog and eventhough the nautical theme does not normally speak to me this suite really stood out. So much so that I could not wait until my March card class to play with it.

The example cards in the catalog use Basic white or Fluid 100 (our water color paper) but the Pearlescent Specialty Paper really spoke to me. It said, “Dana, come color me…” and everybody should know by now how in love I am with the Stampin’ Blends markers but I was truely surprised about how this paper took the color. We can talk about that more as we work thru making the card.

Start with a standard 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 vertical fold (that means the crease is on the left-fancy right?) in Seaside Spray. Cut a piece of the Sand & Sea DSP (that’s designer series paper if you didn’t know) to 4 1/4 x 5 1/2. Yes, you will be covering the entire front or if you are like me and glue it down funny, most of the front.

The sea shell scene has multiple steps so stay with me it will all work out in the end. 1. Cut the Pearlescent DSP to 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 (its ok my paper hoarding friends it will only hurt for a moment). 2. Dry emboss the Pearlescent paper with the Seashells 3D embossing folder. 3. Crop the Pearlescent paper with the Seaside Seashells dies (say that 3 times fast Shelly).

Whew, now that we are all done being sad over the lost pieces of that beautiful paper lets color the shell image. Here is a list of the Stampin’ Blends I used:

  • Old Olive on the long kelp
  • Granny Apple Green on the fern like kelp
  • Seaside Spray and Color Lifter on the nautilus
  • Richrazzle Berry on the small clam shell
  • Crumb Cake and Flirty Flamingo on the conch shell
  • Mango Melody on the large clamshell (but it didn’t look good so that is where the sentiment is
  • Cajun Craze **on the BACK side** of the twisted shell.

Here are some coloring tips for the Pearlescent paper:

  • More is better. When working on normal paper alcohol markers do not leave edge lines. This paper has additives and the lines were somewhat visible. Going over it with more ink gave it great depth and I was able to use those lines to help shade.
  • If you have ink down use the color lifter to move it around. That is what was done with the nautilus. Not that it shows well in the photo but in real life there is a splotchyness that adds a nautral feel to the image.
  • Bleed thru can be your friend! Yes it does say to color the BACK of the twisted shell. The color you see is really bleed thru on the other side. YES it was colored over and over but the effect was perfect.

To finish the card wrap the front in Braided Linen Trim securing with glue dots (one on each side of the trim for a total of four dots). Create the sentiment by stamping off Misty Moonlight ink and the starfish. Then add the sentiment in the same color without stamping off, crop with the Stitched Nested Labels and adhere with dimensionals. Open the card and stamp more starfish at the lower right hand side in both full strength ink and stamped off ink.

Did you remember that I mentioned this was a challenge card? Members of my stamping family can participate in creative card challenges for amazing prizes. This month winners will receive $25, $50 or $100 gift certificates – wish me good luck!

Shadow Stamping Technique And The New Blender Brushes.

Click the image to see a list of supplies used in this card.

When I received the Enjoy the Moment in my package of OnStage gifts from Stampin’ Up! I knew I wanted to do a card with the shadow stamping technique. What I didn’t know was that these blending brushes would be a game changer! Maybe you have had a similar experience where you were using a dauber or a sponge and you didn’t like the results or the tool fell apart? Ok that could be me… I have murdered a few daubers before I bought the ones from Stampin’ Up! Enter the NEW BLENDING BRUSHES.

We can talk about how great they are when we get this card built. Start with a Crumb Cake base with the fold on the left and measuring 4 1/4 x 5 1/2. Stamp the small seed image in Crumb cake all around the edge of the card base. I changed the way I held the stamp as I went along the edge so that the image wasn’t the same all around.

Next cut a piece of Blushing Bride cardstock to 3 3/4 x 5. Dip the Blender Brush in Blushing Bride ink. I tested the color on grid paper to see how much ink and pressure I needed to get the desired color. Let me stop for a moment here and say how great it is to have a HANDLE. It’s a little thing but sticking my finger in the dauber was not really a secure way for me to sponge. Maybe it is my small hands or lack of fine motor skills but they just kept flying off across the desk eventually landing on the floor to make perfectly round ink spots on the carpet. Can’t really blame the dog for that mess.

Back to the card… Repeat the dip and swirl until you get the amount of shadow you want. then stamp the bud image in Roccoco Rose. Alternatively you can stamp the image first then blend but I thought it smudged the image more than I liked. Let the card dry or speed up the drying with the heat tool.

Did you wonder how I got that bright white image? There are two ways to the white 1. Craft ink- for me it was going to be too “chalky” or light for this card 2. white Stampin’ emboss powder. Go with the powder if you want your image to POP! Also if you have an embossing buddy make sure you use it here otherwise if there is any moisture left from the blending it will hold the embossing powder and you will get a distorted image.

After the embossing buddy ink the stamp with Versamark and press on to the cardstock next to the Roccoco Rose image. Cover with white Stampin’ Emboss powder, pour off then flick the back of the card with your finger to remove the last of the powder. Sometimes you may have stray powder outside of the image area, I use my finger nail to scrap it off or a small paint brush works well too. Finish by using the heat tool to melt the powder. Man is that satisfying to watch!

To get the splatters pick up Blushing Bride ink with a water color brush and tap against a finger. While this dries I created the sentiment with a 3/4 x 3 inch piece of Blushing Bride and Roccoco Rose ink. To add the disstressed look I used my scissors along the edges of the cardstock. Distressing is best done the day before you plan to vaccum!

Wrap the main piece with crinkled seam binding and secure with Stampin’ Seal. Layer each piece on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and top with Champagne Rhinestones. On the inside stamp the sentiment and decorate.

SALE-a-Bration Sneek Peek-A Tail of Two Cards.

Did you get a lot of emails or post notifications from me today? First let me apologize for the computer gremlins that hijacked my WordPress. Second I couldn’t let these great cards not get the recognition they deserved so I resent them when I realized they didn’t go out last week as intended.

Last post I mentioned that the best perk of being a demonstrator was my stamping family. Today’s post is two more sneak peeks using the same background stamp and same technique by two different members of my stamping family with two very different results. Both use the Corner Bouquet set you can earn FREE during Sale-a-bration and both use heat embossing to make the image.

Above is from Linda Bauwin. She used the new blending brushes to create the ombre background then embossed the image with white Stampin’ Emboss powder.

This card from Lisa Brown uses the FREE OH so ombre paper from Sale-a-bration as well as silver and gold Stampin’ Emboss powder. The technique is simple- stamp your image in Versamark Ink then coat the image with the two colors of powder. DO NOT return the left over powder to the jars as it will be mixed between the two. I wonder what they would look like mixed then embossed…hmmm… sounds like an experiment that we should do.

I am so proud to be a part of such a creative group of ladies. It is incredibly fun to make cards, bounce off ideas and be apart of their daily lives.

Join my stamp family to share this incredible experience with me… and get some incredible Stampin’ Up! perks in the process.

Whisper White has been a Stampin’ Up! staple for so long. We love it and we know you love it, too. We are sad to announce that the supplier’s mill producing our Whisper White cardstock has permanently closed due to impacts from the COVID-19 pandemic. Unfortunately, we weren’t given much notice on this closure. This means that the technology unique to this particular supplier is now unavailable to us and we can no longer offer our Whisper White cardstock and related products, such as Whisper White Note Cards & Envelopes. Please note that this won’t affect any of our other cardstocks, this only affects Whisper White.

We know Whisper White has a huge fan base; we’re big fans, too! And we are crushed that it’s going away. Even though this decision was out of our hands, rest assured that we jumped right into action to find the best replacement paper possible. We have dedicated many hours to source and test alternative cardstock options from several suppliers to find the perfect fit that still maintains the Stampin’ Up! quality you know and trust. We are happy to share that we have found a winner for our new cardstock, Basic White! 

The quality of our new Basic White was thoroughly tested by our quality assurance and product teams. It also tested very well with demonstrators and concept artists who gave it a huge thumbs up. We believe in the quality of the new Basic White cardstock and we know it will become your new crafting staple! 

What does this mean for you?

With Whisper White going out of production, this means a number of Whisper White products will be affected. We know preorder is a time for you to purchase new items to prepare for the upcoming months of your business so we wanted to give you this information before Whisper White products sell out and before all Basic White products are fully ready so you can include it in your business planning. Below is a list of all products that will be replaced with our new Basic White cardstock. These items are now available while supplies last with an order limit of 2 per item per order.

  • Whisper White 12″ x 12″ (30.5 x 30.5 cm) Cardstock (124302)
  • Assorted Memories & More Cards & Envelopes (149710)
  • Whisper White Note Cards & Envelopes (131527)

  • Whisper White Medium Envelopes (107301)

Our new Basic White products will become available to purchase as soon as we have them in stock. This means that some Whisper White and Basic White productsmay be available at the same time. Additionally, due to the nature of sourcing, some Basic White products may not be available before the Whisper White products sell out. Please know that we are working on getting these products available to you as fast as possible.
