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.

CHEERS to You Card

savingpng

Another card from my “masculine” themed card class and while this card was CASED from Libby Fens I have a great technique to share to make your glasses shine like real glass.

  1. Start with a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 inch Very Vanilla card base.
  2. Layer with a 4 x 5 1/2 inch piece  of In Good Taste DSP and adhere with Stampin” seal. I can’t decide if this is my favorite designer series paper of the annual catalog but if not it is a close second!
  3. Cut a 3×4 1/2 piece of Early Espresso and dry emboss using the Old World Paper Embossing folder and a Stampin’ Cut and Emboss machine.
  4. The top layer is a 3×4 inch piece of Cinnamon Cider that you will use Tuxedo Black Momento ink to stamp the “CHEERS TO YOU” sentiment from the Whiskey Business Stamp Set and an H block.
  5. Now for the good stuff, the decanter and the glass! Start with a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock and stamp the images with Tuxedo Black Momento ink.
  6. Color the image with LIGHT Cinnamon Cider and Pool Party Stampin’ Blends. The Pool Party gives the glass the blue/green appearance. To create the variation of color in whiskey add multiple layers of Cinnamon Cider.
  7. Fussy cut the images with paper snips.
  8. **TECHNIQUE** Press the bottle and glass images into the pad of Versamark Ink until the untire surface is covered.
  9. Coat images in Clear Stampin’ Emboss powder and heat with a heat tool. Repeat until the glassyness of the bottle and glass are where you want it.
  10. Adhere the bottle to the Cinnamon Cider cardstock with Stampin’ Seal and wrap entire piece with the metallic ribbon (copper) from the Basket Weave & Metallic Ribbon combo.
  11. Adhere the glass to the Cinnamon Cider cardstock above the metallic ribbon with a Stampin’ Dimensional.

IMG_27E725FF216F-1

We just finished up my “masculine” card class. Why the “s you may ask? Well I called it a masculine card class because the designs and colors were definately not flowery and pink but honestly the person who is going to get this card will be a female. So drink up ladies I like manly drinks like bourbon and I am not afaid to say it!

Feeling a bit tonal you will see that the pieces that stand out are because of the texture they have. Take a look at the close up below.

IMG_73BE3EAA9377-1

A special thanks to Dragonfly Paper Crafts who I CASED this design from.

Want to make it yourself? Here are the steps:

  1. Start with Crumb Cake cardstock, cut in half with the Paper Trimmer and fold in half again, burnishing the crease with a bone folder, to make a standard 4 1/4 inch by 5 1/2 inch card base.
  2. With Crumb Cake Ink stamp the glass from the Whiskey Business stamp set. I used an alternating pattern but there are so many options you can choose from.
  3. Next run a 1 1/4 x 4 inch piece of Gold Foil cardstock in the Hammered Metal embossing folder thru your Stampin’ Cut and Emboss machine and trim the edge with Paper Snips to make a ribbon end.
  4. Apply some Stampin’ Seal adhesive to back and add a coil of Linen Thread to the back of the gold foild piece and adhere the whole piece to the card base.
  5. Cut a strip just a little over 1/2 inch x 3 of Crumb Cake cardstock. Using Versamark, Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder and a Heat Tool create the sentiment banner and trim to a ribbon edge. Adhere to the gold foil with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  6. I like to end with the bling, bring it on with Gilded Gems.
  7. Most importantly, send your card to someone 🙂

Birthday, Handmade Cards, Masculine Cards, Spring, Summer, Thanks, Winter

Consume Coffee Card

My day starts EVERYDAY with Erie Island Roasters (love love love local companies) Jamaican Me Crazy Coffee only it is a max of 2 cups for me! Comment below with what is getting you going in the dark of the morning.

I see this card being sent to all kinds of people- men, women, coworkers, friends and family- maybe a stranger at the coffee shop! It can even be given for all kinds of reasons like a birthday card with a sampler of fun coffees (there are crazy fall k-cup boxes out right now!), a thank you card for that coworker who saved the day when you were a cup short of a fully functioning brain, or how about a funny congrats card for new parents- we all know they are gonna need LOTS of coffee!

This card is a snap to make and brings some serious sunshine to any day, check out the steps below.

  1. Make a 4 1/4×5 1/2 inch card base with Daffodil Delight cardstock.
  2. Adhere a 3×5 1/2 inch piece of Playing With Patterns DSP with Stampin’ Seal- I love the sunshine feel of this ombre paper.
  3. On Whisper White stamp the sentiment and a coffee cup from the Nothing’s Better Than stamp set in Tuxedo Black Momento ink. That part is really important for using Stampin’ Blends to color images without smudging the original image. Stamp 2 additional coffee cups on Whisper White cardstock scrap.
  4. Crop the sentiment/coffee cup image with the large circle from the Stitched Framelits Dies and crop the 2 coffee cups with the Love You More Dies.
  5. Color the coffee cups with the Smokey Slate and Bermuda Bay Stampin’ Blends. Let me just say that Stampin’ Blends has BLOWN my mind when it comes to marker coloring. Say good bye to the die hard colored pencil girl!
