Bouquet of Roses … Three Techniques!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Hope you had a wonderful weekend! With the retirement list in full swing and my Catalog Retirement Party coming up this weekend, I will be focusing some of my favorite “retiring” products this week. Today I’d like to share the “To A Wild Rose” Stamp set.

There are so many different ways you can use this versatile stamp set, I thought I’d share 3 different techniques with you.  The first is the “Three-step Stamping” technique …

You begin with the most solid of the three images … this one gets the lightest color, or in my case … I “stamped off” to lighten the Daffodil Delight.  Then the second image is stamped with full color, and the last and most detailed stamp, I used Crushed Curry.  You can see the three layers as it gives our flower highlights and lowlights!!

On my “True Friendship” card, I used the technique of sponging color onto the image ….

I used the detailed image not only to stamp my flower that was sponged, but my background!  I love doing “color on color” and on this card I’m using the Basic Gray.  I think that Gray and Pink are so pretty together.

My last of the three card features the “Coloring with Stampin’ Blends” technique …

Before I decided how my card would look, I chose my color pallet; Basic White and Highland Heather. I stamped the rose image with the Momento ink and began to color it with the Highland Heather Stampin’ Blends Duo. I begin by coloring a petal with the light marker, then add the dark marker at the part of the petal that is closest to the center and over the lines in the rose. Then I go back over the dark with the lighter marker to blend the colors … you can always add a little more dark again. I leave the edges of the petals as light as I can.

The center is colored with the Daffodil Delight Dark Stampin’ Marker and then the rose is die cut.  The leaves cut from Pear Pizzazz cardstock.  The lattice piece was cut in Whisper White and Highland Heather and then layered to create an added dimension to the card.  The white base was stamped with the “Hello” from the stamp set and then the entire piece was embossed using the “Subtle” Folder.

Have you fallen in love with this amazing stamp set yet?  I find it so versatile and easy to use. Don’t forget that the “To A Wild Rose” coordinates with the Wild Rose Die Set.

Thank you for joining me today. Let me know if you have any questions on the cards shared today.

Hope your day is filled with beauty … pass it on.

The Floating & Fluttering Butterfly bundle … Retiring

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I’d like to share the beauty of the Floating & Fluttering Bundle… my heart sank when I saw this on the retiring list, because that means I have a limited time to share this bundle with you! This amazing stamp and die set can create beautiful cards. Not only will I share the cards, but videos to show you how to make them.

Let’s begin with the simple “floating” butterflies …

The video will explain step by step how easy it is to create this beautifully textured card, and how I colored the butterflies.

The next card I’d like to share again is the Joseph’s Coat technique. This technique is really pretty simple yet it creates a stunning effect …

I used a little bit of a twist on this card, the wonderful “Blending Brushes”. You will fall in love with the magic of Joseph’s Coat and the pop of color this creates …

Isn’t this a fun and magic technique!! Think of the colors you could use … Your friends will be amazed when they receive your card.

They will be equally amazed at the next technique …. the Floating Frame Technique!

The Floating Frame Technique; it takes a little patience but as my friend Olivia said “I like that you get 2 cards for your effort- and they both look great! I will be trying these cards soon. Also I love press n seal- use it a lot in the kitchen and for things around the house. Never thought to use it for stamping so that just blew my mind! Thanks for the tip”

Let’s take a look at the “Floating Frame” Technique …

I hope you enjoyed this showcase of cards & videos that highlight the Floating & Fluttering Bundle and some of the cool techniques that really embrace it. But don’t stop here, there are more right here on this blog, just put Floating & Fluttering Bundle in the search box. You will find the video’s on My YOUTUBE Channel.

Then … if you decide you would like to purchase this bundle from me, I will invite you into my Facebook Classroom where I have 3 more stunning cards (with Step by Step video featuring all 3 cards and PDF – Written Directions with Photos) Use Hostess Code: JWHA6EMK This will be open until the end of April.

Oh the Things We Can Do with Designer Paper!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~ Happy April 1st!! No Foolin’ … today I’m going to share all the different ways we have used the True Love Designer Series paper!

Let’s begin with one you may have forgot about; Using Scraps to Create a beautiful card. This super simple technique creates a fun pattern …. just add a greeting! Oh yes, and I added the Daisy Punch too.

The next up is the soft and pretty effect you get when you use your blending brushes to color the black and white images. I did add a little color from my Stampin’ Blends for the leaves, but I love how the brushed on color “goes out of the lines” to create a beautiful softness to the True Love Designer Paper.

If you prefer the “clean” look … I have the pattern colored strickly with the Stampin’ Blend Markers. Same pattern … Same color … I just wanted to show how different these two techniques look on your designer paper.

One of my favorites, and not something we normally don’t think to do: COLOR THE BACKGROUND. I was amazed the first time I saw someone do this technique … who would have thought!? I’m just glad they did, and shared it. Coloring the background just really made our pretty flowers pop off the page.

I have some fun with this one! Not only did I color the back ground, I did the flowers as well. This time though, I used my “Sponge Daubers” to add color to my flowers. They are smaller that the brush heads so you can get a little more precise with your ink placement. Both techniques add soft color your paper.

And …. yesterday’s card, where I showed you how to create an Ombre effect on your Black & White True Love Designer paper! I love all the options you have when working with a designer paper in Black and White … and your color pallet is limitless!! You can create “any” color designer paper now … and it’s FUN!!

I know there are more techniques we can do … how about a soft watercoloring, or bring out your Watercolor Pencils and Blender pen!! The possibilities are endless. The True Love Designer Paper “IS” on the Retiring List … so if you like it, don’t wait … it here only while supplies last.

Thanks for hanging out with me as we revisited some of the great techniques you can do with this special paper!

Have yourself a fun & creative day ~

Double “Z” Fold Card with Ombre Background …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I am excited to share my card with you today! You’ll see how I created the Ombre effect on the pretty True Love Designer Series paper, and then use it while I show you how fun and easy it is to create the Double “Z” Fold card. I’ll be sharing my Facebook LIVE video with you as well as the dimensions for the card…

I really like the way this card turned out, a bit different and whimsical. Join me and sit a bit to watch how I created today’s card. Just click on the > to begin viewing …

Wasn’t that an easy card to make … sometimes watching a video just makes it easier to remember how to do it. Here at the dimensions you will need when cutting your for your card.

You can actually click on this picture and save it! Then you will have the dimensions to make as many Double “Z” Fold cards as you’d like! I love the surprise of a Z Fold card because when you look at the front of the card, it looks like a regular card front ….

You have a nice border all around … you can see the Ombre that we created, the cute daisy and even our colored droplets, but when you open it up … you are greeted with a fun fold that will put a smile on anyone’s face …

I want to thank you for spending part of you day with me today. I hope you enjoyed the video and feel inspired to try your hand at this fun fold … don’t forget to try out the Ombre technique as well.

Have a beautiful day ~

Two 4 Tuesday: Plus Tips for Coloring Designer Paper!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Oh yes … you’ve read that right, we are coloring our designer paper. I picked another pattern from the pretty “True Love Designer Series Paper”- (Retiring). You will be amazed at how simple this is to do, and what a stunning result you will achieve!! I picked the beautiful Soft Seafoam Stampin’ Blend and coordinating cardstock for my first card.

I used the “Light” Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Blend to color the “background” … not the flowers!! Wow … what a difference that makes on your paper and look how it makes those beautiful white flowers pop off the page!

  • The Designer paper strip is 2″ x 5-1/4″
  • Basic Black Mat 2-1/4″ x 5-1/4″
  • Basic White background 4″ x 5-1/4″
  • Soft Sea Foam 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 (Score at 4-1/4″)

Look what happens when you add some Wink of Stella to the flowers (I left one without Stella so you could see the difference it makes) ….

The white background was stamped with Tuxedo Black Momento Ink, and I chose a sentiment from the embossed with the Enjoy the Moment Stamp Set found in the Mini Catalog. Once stamped, I embossed it with the Subtle 3-D Embossing Folder.

For my second card, I colored the background using the “Light” Balmy Blue Stampin’ Blend. Then … I used my Sponge Daubers to add “Blushing Bride” to the flowers and “Pear Pizzazz” to the leaves. Combining the colored background and then adding a touch of color really creates a stylish color design …

My Blushing Bride cardbase front was embossed with the Subtle 3-D Embossing Folder. I then layered my colored designer paper onto my “off center” Basic Black mat … I set the black off to really make a statement on this card … the greeting acts as the focal point.

  • Blushing Bride: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ (Scored at 4-1/4″)
  • True Love Designer Series Paper: 3-1/2″ x 4-1/4″
  • Basic Black Mat: 3-1/2″ x 4-1/4″

Then I just used scrap pieces to stamp my greeting and die cut it with the Stitched Framelits Dies, and the black mat from the Layered Circle Dies.

You can see how I off set the Basic Black mat from the colored Designer paper. I was going to add embellishments but it just didn’t need them!

Thanks for joining me today …. don’t forget to wacth Facebook LIVE tonight at 6:30. CLICK HERE for the link to my Linda’s Stampin’ Escape Facebook page.

Creative Coloring: Stampin’ Blends

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I have another of my coloring techniques to share with the pretty “True Love Designer Series Paper”- (Retiring). I’ll refresh you with yesterday’s card and then share a new one with you. This fun designer paper is perfect for a variety of coloring techniques … it’s black & white!!

I am going to share today’s technique using the same designer paper pattern as I did yesterday. I want you to see the difference you get when using different techniques.

I’m using the Stampin’ Blends to color my designer paper today … don’t you just love coloring! I find it very relaxing and the Stampin’ Blends allow you to blend colors effortlessly and get such beautiful vivid colors….

Instead of the soft background that was created yesterday using the Blending Brushes, the control of the Stampin’ Blends leaves your background clean and open … so cool. For my greeting I used the “Free as a Bird” stamp set again.

I cut down my designer paper to 3-1/4″ x 3-1/4″ and matted it with Basic Black measuring 3-1/2″ x 3-1/2″. This was popped up after I laid a 1-1/2″ x 5″ strip of the “True Love Designer Series Paper” … just another pattern.

Thanks for checking back today, don’t forget to put my Facebook LIVE on your schedule for Tuesday Night at 6:30.

Have a great day ~

Simply Sunday: Creative Coloring

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Oh my the weekends go fast, don’t they! Hope you’ve been doing something fun, creative … or just enjoying spring coming. I have been playing with different coloring techniques and such with the pretty “True Love Designer Series Paper”- (Retiring). So for the next couple of days I will be sharing these creations and then on Tuesday, the designer paper will be highlighted when I demonstrate a “FUN FOLD” on my Facebook LIVE at 6:30. I hope you follow along!

This fun designer paper is perfect for a variety of coloring techniques … it’s black & white!! Today I’m keeping it quick and simple by just applying color with our Blending Brushes … did I say “quick”!!

This pattern is so pretty and easy to use the blending brushes because the flowers are bigger than some of the other floral patterns in the pack. On these flowers I actually started in the center and worked my way out in a circular motion.

I did just a little for the green … I kind of stroked the color on the single ones and then I went back in with the coordinating Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blend to create a more detailed leaf.

The background has a soft pattern which created a textured look … so cool. I did my greeting using the “Free as a Bird” stamp set. It was punched with the Double Oval punch which is currently in the Mini Catalog.

To highlight my greeting, I added a layering of the Bumble Bee Ribbon (retiring) … it’s so simple to do; I just fill the back of the greeting with adhesive and then just lay the ribbon down. I use dimensionals then to help hold the ribbon and to pop it up.

What do you think … Do you like the addition of Wink of Stella to the card?? The first two pictures were taken without Stella!!

I hope you enjoyed today’s simple color creation, and join me daily to see additional coloring techniques with this paper … and don’t forget to head to my Facebook page on Tuesday for my LIVE presentation using a fab Fun Fold!!

Thanks for stopping in to visit today …

Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Borders Abound Card Parade …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

How is your weekend going so far? Hope well … today I’m sharing a parade of cards created with the Borders Abound stamp set. I love this set because the font is sooo beautiful and your can do so many things with the borders, so sit back and join me as we go through many different style creations you can do with this amazing stamp set.

The first two cute cards will showcases the Baby Wipe Technique. You will see two different ways to use those baby wipes!!

I am using Pool Party, Coastal Cabana and Pacific Point. You begin by laying out your baby wipes (I used the kind from the $ $tore) and then you add a few drops of ink in each color onto your baby wipe…

I chose these colors because I picked the snowflake border from the Borders Abound stamp set … now you can use this “inked” baby wipe as your new multi-colored stamp pad. I’m starting simple on my first card ….

I stamped my “multi-colored” snowflakes near the bottom and then added my Christmas greeting … this comes from the “Arrange a Wreath” stamp set. I believe I used this on the 5 cards I shared with you on Sunday (Click Here to View). The snowflakes were kissed with Wink of Stella … just a touch to add a subtle sparkle, and then I layered with the Pool Party to tie it all together. I wish the picture showed the Wink of Stella … so delicate.

My next Baby Wipe technique card, I used the same snowflake border stamp, but this time it’s inked with VersaMark so I can emboss my Whisper White card front in Clear Embossing Powder. Once embossed …. I took my “inked” baby wipe and ran it over the clear embossed image. WOW What a fun impact it creates on your card …

This is one of those fun techniques (one of my favorites for Fall cards) where you get more bang for your buck because you can create two different looks from your Baby Wipe technique.

Next up is a card that I created an Ombre effect. It showcases a succession of color … Pool Party, Coastal Cabana, Bermuda Bay in the center, then Pacific Point and Night of Navy.

This fun card can be done in an array of colors; pinks, greens or your primary colors … any of these would be pretty. Since my Bermuda Bay is the center color, I used it as my mat, ink for my greeting and Stampin’ Blends to color my embellishments.

Next, I want to share a card that is similar but I used my “Stamparatus” with this one so I could create even placement with each stamp and then the ability to stamp my greeting in between ….

I used the filigree border from the Borders Abound stamp set and aligned it onto my cardstock and then picked up the stamp with my plate … now you’re ready to stamp! The colors used are Poppy Parade, Calypso Coral, Mango Melody, Granny Apple Green, and Coastal Cabana …. each color was achieved by moving the plate down hinge by hinge.

Isn’t that cool … all the cards are so different, but wait … I have more!! I began this card with the “Emboss Resist” technique and ended up with not one, but two amazing cards!!

I could fill this page with instructions but wait … I have a video to share with you. Need a refill on your coffee? Filler up, sit back end enjoy … it’s not really that long! I just want you to be comfortable.

Have you fallen in love with that stamp set like I have? I’m so sad that it is on the retirement list! I must have said it a hundred times … I ❤ the font!! So here are a couple more cards that I used the greetings one ….

The last two cards feature the Peony Gardens Designer Series Paper … that will be retiring too. Don’t get me wrong … I’m super excited to get my hands on those new items, but it is still hard to see these old friends go … away …. forever!! Get yours while you can, it’s all available only while supplies last.

I hope you enjoyed today’s technique and cards … I’d love to know what you’d like to see. Leave a comment below so I can better meet your stamping needs.

Thanks for the visit today, it’s appreciated. See you tomorrow!

Floating Frame Technique Explained …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I’m going to share with you “how to” create two cards with the “Floating Frame” technique. I have also included my video from last nights Facebook LIVE presentation. Grab a cup of coffee as I share these amazing cards with you …

The video will show you step by step how I created these amazing cards with this different technique, who knew that a common food wrap from your kitchen would be so helpful!! Let’s see the floating …

Now join me for the video … Got your coffee? Maybe even a note pad!! When you watch how I remove the film from the butterflies, it works best when you pull to the side (like I did at the end) than trying to pull up. Have a look …

I love coloring so that part of the technique was easy, and the new dies make it easy to cut them out too … I don’t even mind putting all of the dimensionals on, just takes me a while to pick them all off … LOL! Once you peel off the film it uncovers an effect as if the butterflies are actually floating.

I promised to show you a second card, one with the piece that was cut while creating the frame …

I placed the piece down onto the card front and peeled off the film just like in the video … including the Wink of Stella!! I stamped my sentiment from the Sunflower Celebrations stamp set in Melon Mambo, then added a coordinating mat and attached the entire front to the Basic White card base. Here is a close up …

So what do you think? Is this your kind of technique … Will you be trying it? I’d love to hear from you, please comment below. I think the Floating & Fluttering Bundle is an easy way to start learning how to make these cards because the are mainly joined together.

I enjoyed making these cards … I’m going to love sending them out I thank you for joining me today, I hope you have an amazing day!

Two-Step Technique

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I’m going to share another card and a video using the Floating & Fluttering Bundle. I will show you how to use the Two-step Stamping technique with a minimum of ink pads!! This is a great tip for new stampers who don’t have it all … yet 😉

Join me for this short video, hopefully you’ll catch a few more tips and techniques to use in your stamping …

Oh my gosh … don’t you just love those butterflies! The dies were designed to make these butterflies look like they are floating, and if you didn’t catch it in the video, I have a close up here …

The colors I used were the Highland Heather, Calypso Coral and Coastal Cabana … if you want to pair these colors to create a darker butterfly you could add Gorgeous Grape, Terracatta Tile and Bermuda Bay.

You could always add a touch of color to the edge of the wings like I did in the video. Either was these butterflies are quite stunning …

I hope you will join me for my Butterfly Class … you will learn even more about these butterflies. I have a private Facebook page for the class, there you will find even more samples!! Join us …

You can order your bundle by CLICKING HERE … once I receive notification, I will contact you with more information and a link to the Class Room.

Split Card Technique 2

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I’m going to share more of the cards that I made using the Split Card Technique. This technique is quick -n- easy on only uses a 4″ x 4″ piece of designer paper … NO Waste! I am also keeping the video on my blog so you can watch it again. Did you know that if you use your mouse to “hover” over my little picture – you can subscribe to my YouTube Channel right away … How cool is that!

OK … Lets start with the first card (remember to watch the video to learn how/where to cut) … this is the most simple of the three cards. I just cut my Paper Blooms designer paper and attached it directly to the card. Then using the “Ornate Thanks” stamp set, I stamped the Thank You in Soft Sea Foam and then the coordinating sentiment is stamped in Night of Navy … both colors are in our designer paper (No Guessing) so easy!

Our next card adds in a piece of Basic White cardstock … it’s cut 4″ x 5-1/4″ and I layered my Paper Blooms Designer paper and attached it to the top and the bottom, leaving only the center exposed. I stamped my greeting exactly the same on this one as I did the last … just to show the difference. It does lighten up the card a little and makes the greeting pop more.

What is fun about these cards is that each one is slightly different … the Paper Blooms has a scattered pattern of flowers, you will find other papers that will allow them all to look a like.

On our last card …. I am using the Basic White cardstock again, but this time I’ve let some of it exposed on the top and the bottom of the card. It creates a nice balance. To add some texture to the card, I wrapped some white Bakers Twine around it and tied a double bow. My greeting is stamped in Soft Sea Foam and comes from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set.

The video will show you two ways to cut your 12 x 12 designer paper and then give you samples so you can get a better picture of what I want to show you. Sit back … relax … enjoy …

I hope you enjoyed getting a close up look at these cards and another look at the video. I love to hear when you are excited about a new technique, thank you!

NOW … I’d like to invite YOU to join me for a fun Stamp Class … It’s STAMP WITH ME Saturday!! Tomorrow at 10: 30 am, meet me on my Linda’s Stamp’ Escape Facebook page; I’ll be LIVE and looking to stamp with you!! I’m going through step by step how to make another FUN FOLD Card and it “features” designer paper! There is NO Cost, I just want to gather with you and stamp!

Birthday Shaker Card …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

There is nothing better than sprinkles on ice cream or inside your “Shaker Card” … and that is what I have for you today! The Shaker card was a hit at my house, my grandkids like to pick out the cards I should send them … lol!! I like to surprise them ❤

I used the Ice Cream Corner Designer paper as my background and to punch out my Ice Cream Cone …

The background is from the Ice Cream Corner Designer Paper … I picked the sprinkle design. I cut my window out of the Bermuda Bay using the Rectangle Layered Dies, and then attached the window sheet to the back. Once the window sheet is attached I used the Adhesive Strips to create the height needed for the “shaker”.

You have the greeting stamped … I used the “Happy Birthday” from the bundle and then sprinkled my “Ice Cream Corner Sprinkles” onto the greeting and laid the window sheet assembly on top. With a little adhesive, I attached the “shaker” to the card.

I punched out the Ice Cream and the Cone from the Designer paper!! It was designed to make creating your cones easier!! I attached it directly to the “shaker”…

Easy to see why this fun shaker card was a hit!! And another sample for you made with the Sweet Ice Cream bundle!

Thanks much for hanging out with me today, I hope you have a good one!

Happy Hearts Card …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I have two techniques in one card for you; the Chalkboard technique and the “Coloring Embossed Images” … and together they just pop off the page! This is the card I created for my technique Tuesday LIVE last night, but I have a surprise … I have the other card that I suggested on the video! I am using the PUNCH PARTY stamp set again.

Kick back for a moment and watch the video (only about 20-25minutes) …

Such fun and easy techniques that together really make the card pop. The second card that you see is using the technique of coloring the “mat” multiple colors … I think it turned out pretty good. I just ran the Stampin’ Blends around the edge of the mat and then I ran the “Color Lifter” over it all to lighten and blend the colors together better.

Before placing the heart down onto the card, I wrapped some of the Bakers Twine from the “Snailed It” suite just to added a little extra texture and fun to the card. I really do like how the multicolored “mat” turned out… it draws your eye all around the card!

I hope you enjoyed today’s technique share and that you give it a try! It really is as easy as it looks, and you end up with a colorful FUN Card!

Thank you so much for joining me today, I’d love to hear what you think about these two techniques.

Have yourself a day that “makes your heart happy” ~

Guest Stamper: Deb Anderson

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I have another “DRAPERY FOLD” card for you … from Deb Anderson. Deb caught my Facebook LIVE demonstration on the Drapery Fold and was inspired to try it out … and she shared this sample with me ….

Deb used the Snowflake Splendor Designer Series paper for her card …

It is fairly simple to make and does not need a lot of supplies, and it’s fun! It give you a touch of “fanciness” on your card but slides into the envelope quite easy.

I have a video for you to watch, my Technique Tuesday video from my Facebook LIVE last night. Have a bit of a rest and watch the video …

What did you think … ?? This is the type of card that looks fancy but is pretty easy to make. Any designer paper could be used for this style of card. I chose to use the Poinsettia Place suite… such a pretty pattern and a natural background to accent the fold.

I have written down the measurements for you ….

I also showcased both cards in the photo … the one on the left is the one where the drapery fits from end to end, and the one on the right is the one I trimmed off to create a border all the way around my card front.

I hope I inspired you to try out this simple yet pretty “FUN FOLD”, then I’d LOVE to see what you create.

Have yourself a wonderful day, and thank you for spending part of it with me.
