Hello Stampin’ Friends ~
I am back and bustin’ at the seams with idea’s to share with you!! I’ve finally figured out what was wrong with my computer and got it fixed … and meanwhile my new stamping goodies came in and I’ve been playing like crazy!!
Today I’d like to share one of the cards that my club members got to make this month. We were using the new Graceful Glass Suite. I am totally in love with this suite and if you like to color this one will satisfy your needs!!
I began with this cute circle pattern and colored it in with the Bermuda Bay duo, which paired well with the Tranquil Tide cardstock. I highlighted the design, creating a focal point by encasing it within the white frame. The circle was cut out with the Layering Circles Framelits and then added a black mat behind it.
To make our beautiful coloring job “pop” … we added the Wink of Stella to add some sparkle. It’s a little hard to capture with the camera but the eye is not disappointed when looking at this card.
The greeting was stamped in the lower right-hand corner of the card in the coordinating Tranquil Tide ink. The ribbon accent is from last years ribbon (not available anymore) but you could easily substitute the new Tranquil Tide ribbon or even some cardstock!
I’m so glad to be back and sharing my creations with you! Thanks for stopping by today.
I’ll be back tomorrow with my Simply Sunday creations.
TODAY’S STAMPIN’ SUPPLY LIST …
Hello Stampin’ Friends ~
Today I want to share a card with you from my March Technique Club… it’s totally full of fun techniques.
Here is the third and last card from my Creating Backgrounds Class using the “Beautiful You” stamp set. I begin with the “Delicate Details” stamp set that is in our Sale-a-bration catalog. I aligned the stamps by laying the large block onto the Grid Paper – that way I was sure they were all straight.
Then it’s inked up with the VersaMark ink … you’ll have to stamp twice because the stamps are spaced closer together. Once your cardfront is stamped you emboss with CLEAR embossing powder. We are doing the “Emboss Resist” technique.
For the color … I’m also incorporating the “Ombre” technique. The colors are Pool Party, Bermuda Bay and Island Indigo. I used a Sponge Dauber to apply my ink. (this works best when you start “off” your cardstock and work your way into the card. Blending of these colors is easy and very pretty.
For our lady … she was stamped with the Momento Ink and then colored with the Wink of Stella pen and Bermuda Bay ink refill. This marvelous pen works just similar to the Aquapainter but with sparkle is included!! If you have the “clear” pen, like I used here” … you can create as many colors as you have ink refills. Love this!! No need to go out and buy different colored Wink of Stella pens, by using the Stampin’ Up! ink refill, you have the perfect way to add that coordinating sparkle ❤
Here’s a tip … you could also use the Watercolor Pencils to color your image and then go over it with the Wink of Stella.
Thank you for sharing a part of your day with me, hope your day is a good one.
