Sharing More Magic …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Yesterday I shared the Magic of Embossing and how the transformation can be an amazing addition to your cardmaking. We saw how the embossing changed the color of the cardstock and how it enhances the designer paper.

I also showed you that you can emboss directly onto your stamped images, I demonstrated on the sunflower … Today, I’d like to share the finished card with you!

I used the “In Good Tasted” Designer Series paper as my background on my card and behind the card for the photo. I love the rustic look with the sunflower, and it is one of the designer papers that go On Sale Today!

The In Good Taste Designer paper is so very versatile because the textile patterns are so stunning and well chosen. I think Stampin’ Up! gave us a good variety of patterns.

I teamed up my Celebrate Sunflowers with the dies from the Well Said Bundle to add a pop of color with the leaves and a simple greeting ….

The results are amazing! The dark color of the “In Good Taste” Designer Series paper and the depth you get when you clear emboss your sunflower really stand out and compliment each other well.

Stampin’ Blends Tutorial

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I’d like to share the Facebook Live that I did last night demonstrating the Stampin’ Blends coloring technique. I used the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set …

This is a “Facebook Live” so you are going to hear me talking to the viewers as they arrive. I’ve also shared some tips and more. Pardon the wiggle, this was my first LIVE Video (still learning) I will be finding a more stable holder for my phone!

I hope you enjoyed, and I really hope that you learned a little more about our Stampin’ Blends and how easy they are to use. I really do believe that the large flower in the Celebrate Sunflowers bundle is the perfect image to practice on…. besides, it’s a beautiful bundle!

I will be back tomorrow to share another card from the Celebrate Sunflowers bundle using more of the dies!! Until then, have yourself a sunshiny day!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Yesterday I shared my second card featuring the Celebrate Sunflowers bundle. This card was created using the Stampin’ Blend markers, our alcohol markers which make color blending easy.

Today I’d like to invite you to join me for a FACEBOOK LIVE event in which I will be demonstrating the ease of these markers and simple tips for blending …

I’ve been demonstrating for over 20 years and love how easy the stampin’ blends are to use and to make your projects look like an artist created them. And they are the perfect tools for me to use for my very first “Technique Tuesday: Facebook Live” event.

Sunflower Thanks …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Yikes … sorry for the late post but I promised I would share another Celebrate Sunflowers with you, and I got a cutie for you today! Using some of the same techniques as yesterday and then “WOW” … I used the large sunflower colored with the Stampin’ Blends.

Just like yesterday, I stamped the background but instead of covering the entire card, I just edged the sides with the little sunflowers. Then I used a Sponge Dauber to add a touch of ink to the centers of the little flowers, and then around the outsides of the flower … this technique does 2 things; it highlights the small sunflowers, and then leaves the center bright and open which then highlights the large sunflower as well.

The next step is to stamp the large Sunflower image … I used the Black Tuxedo Momento ink (it’s the best when coloring with Stampin’ Blends) I”m actually going to die cut “after” coloring.

I used the Light and Dark Daffodil Delight and the Light Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends to color my sunflower. I start with the Light Daffodil Delight, the color the lines with the Dark Daffodil Delight and then used the light to blend the two colors. The Light Soft Suede was used mostly in the center and then a little in the base of the petals to create real depth.

I stamped my greeting onto a 3/4″ piece of Very Vanilla using the Momento Ink and then I cut it out to create an interesting twist to the card… I think it highlights the pretty “script”. It is then placed over the Bumble Bee Ribbon.

JOIN ME … tomorrow as I do a “FACEBOOK LIVE” to demonstrate how I use my Stampin’ Blends for coloring. I will be on my Linda’s Stampin’ Escape Facebook page … meet me at 6pm/central time!

Thank you for hanging out and waiting for my post today!!

Enjoy the rest of your day ~
