Stampin’ Up! Products Used for Today’s Projects

Bloom with Hope and Floating Watercolor Technique (Part 2) – Stampin’ Up!

First, before I get to my project for today, I need to announce the blog candy winner from last week’s blog hop. I totally forgot to do the drawing on Tuesday! Random.org picked comment number 14, so the lucky winner is Dana! Send me your mailing address, and I will get your Paper Pumpkin kit in the mail. Congratulations and sorry for the delay!

Now, onto today’s project… On Wednesday I shared a card featuring the Bloom with Hope stamp set from Stampin’ Up! that used the Floating Watercolor Technique.  Today, I have another card that I created using the same technique.

Bloom with Hope Float Technique (1 of 7)

I started by stamping the flowers and leaves with versamark ink on watercolor paper. Then I heat embossed them using white embossing powder.

Bloom with Hope Float Technique (4 of 7)

Next, I “painted” the petals with water and then I used my re-inkers to add color to the wet surface.  The water causes the color to spread and fade as it moves outward.  The result can be unpredictable, but I think it is pretty.

Bloom with Hope Float Technique (3 of 7)

After I painted the flowers and leaves, I dry embossed the card base using the Lovely Lace embossing folder.  Then I added some pearls that I colored using my Rich Razzleberry Stampin’ Blendabilities.

I like the clean and simple design of this card.  I hope that you like it to and will consider pinning this project to Pinterest.  You will find a “pin it” button at the end of this post below the supply list.

Bloom with Hope and Floating Watercolor Technique – Stampin’ Up!

Over the summer I pinned several cards that used the Floating Watercolor Re-inker Technique, and I have finally gotten around to trying it with this card featuring the Bloom with Hope stamp set from Stampin’ Up!

Bloom with Hope Float Technique (5 of 7)

I started by stamping the flowers and leaves with versamark ink on watercolor paper. Then I heat embossed them using white embossing powder.   I chose to use white Stampin’ Embossing powder for this card because I wanted it to look like a batik effect when it was finished.

Bloom with Hope Float Technique (7 of 7)

Next, I “painted” the petals with water and then I used my re-inkers to add color to the wet surface.  The water causes the color to spread and fade as it moves outward.  The result can be unpredictable, but I think it is pretty.

Bloom with Hope Float Technique (6 of 7)

After I painted the flowers and leaves, I added a wash to the background.  First, I painted the whole background with water, then I painted it with a diluted ink solution.  After allowing everything to dry, I added the sentiment from the Kinda Eclectic stamp set from Stampin’ Up!

I am pretty pleased with how it turned out in the end.  I hope that you like it to and will consider pinning this project to Pinterest.  You will find a “pin it” button at the end of this post below the supply list.

World of Dreams Blank Card – Stampin’ Up!

Before I get to today’s project, let me remind you that your opportunity to get $150 worth of product for only $99 begins today!  See all the details at the bottom of the post.  Now, onto today’s project, which is a clean and simple card featuring the World of Dreams stamp from Stampin’ Up!  This card was quick and simple to create.  It is blank inside, making it perfect for any occasion.

World of Dreams (3 of 4)

I started with a Crumb Cake card base, which I stamped using the leaf stamp from World of Dreams.  I used crumb cake ink, and stamped off before stamping onto the card base.  This gave my card interest, while also allowing the pattern to fade into the background.

World of Dreams (5 of 4)

Next, I stamped the “wheat” image (I’m not exactly sure what that plant is, but it is gorgeous!) onto a panel of Very Vanilla card stock using Early Espresso ink.  I stamped the image three times without re-inking to create depth.  Then I layered my panel onto a panel of Early Espresso card stock using SNAIL adhesive.  I tied a bow (Early Espresso) around my layered panels and added them to the front of the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I just love the feel of the new 1/4″ cotton ribbon.  It is really soft and easy to work with.

World of Dreams (6 of 4)

For the inside of the card, I repeated my stamped image from the front.  I like how simple yet elegant this card is.  I think I will send it to my uncle who has recently been diagnosed with Cancer.  The neutral colors make it seem peaceful and well suited for a man.

Sweet Stripes from Paper Pumpkin – Stampin’ Up!

Last week, while I was home caring for my sick little guy, a surprise arrived in the mail… My Paper Pumpkin!  It is always fun to see what’s in the box.  And, it was nice to have a simple project that I could work on while he was napping!

August 2014 Paper Pumpkin (3 of 5)

I have to say I love this month’s kit.  It came with enough supplies to create four large cards and four small cards plus some super cute envelopes to match.  There were also extra die cut sheets and banners that I can use for another project (also nice in case you make a mistake).

August 2014 Paper Pumpkin (4 of 5)

The kit includes everything you need… card bases, banners, stamps, ink, adhesive, envelopes, embellishments.  The only thing I had to provide was a pair of scissors. Another nice thing about this kit is that it covered many different occasions: friendship, congratulations, birthday, and thank you!  🙂

August 2014 Paper Pumpkin (5 of 5)

The kit includes a cute little circle stamp perfect for making the small polka dots on the white die cut panel.  However, after stamping small polka dots on three of the cards, I decided to pull out my Gorgeous Grunge stamp set and play with it instead.  I love the effect, and I have to admit it went much faster than the individual polka-dots.

August 2014 Paper Pumpkin (6 of 5)

Check out the cute envelopes that came with this month’s Paper Pumpkin kit.  The large cards came with pink and yellow solid envelopes, but the smaller cards had cute polka-dots and stars on them!  The small cards are just the perfect size to put on top of a gift too!  For the smaller cards, I used the And Many More stamp set to change up the greetings.

Hip Hip Hooray for Quick and Simple Solutions! – Stampin’ Up!

I’ll tell you what, the last few weeks have been rough!  After my difficult week last week, this week I have been sick all week!  I’m so grateful that Stampin’ Up! has provided us with quick and simple solutions for when life gets a little crazy!  Today’s project is a set of cards created with the Hip Hip Hooray Card Kit from Stampin’ Up!

Hip Hip Hooray Card Kit (3 of 5)

My mom and I created these cards together a couple of weeks ago while we were on vacation at the beach. I knew I couldn’t bring a lot of supplies with me, but I couldn’t imaging a week without some form of creative play, so I threw the Hip Hip Hooray card kit and some paper snips into my suitcase.

Hip Hip Hooray Card Kit (4 of 5)

Hip Hip Hooray Card Kit (5 of 5)

Mom and I had a fun time playing together and we were able to whip out ten cards in no time flat!  What is even better, is the card kit comes with enough supplies for 20 cards, so I still have plenty more materials left in my kit for next time I need a quick solution!

Bloom with Hope One-to-One Swap from Lisa Poe – Stampin’ Up!

Recently I hosted my first one-to-one card swap.  I loved seeing the great projects created by some of my readers.  Today’s project is a card created by Lisa Poe from Ohio.  Lisa’s project features the Bloom with Hope hostess stamp set from Stampin’ Up!

One-to-One Swap (2 of 2)

Card created by Lisa Poe

I just love Lisa’s card design.  The stamped band behind the single flower is simple, but adds so much dimension and interest!

Lisa was kind enough to provide her card recipe for this project too!  You can find it at the very bottom of this post.  Thanks for sharing with us how you created your beautiful card.

World of Dreams Notepad – Stampin’ Up!

Hello Stampers!  Today’s project is a notepad featuring the World of Dreams stamp set from Stampin’ Up!  As soon as I saw this stamp set in the catalog I knew it was one I just had to have!  I love a stamp set with beautiful silhouetted images!

World of Dreams Notepad (3 of 4)

For instructions about how to create your own beautiful notepads with the perfect measurements, please see my previous post here.

World of Dreams Notepad (1 of 4)

I love these notepads.  They are perfect for brightening up the corner of your desk and they make awesome gifts!  In this case, I made a whole set of them and gave them as favors at my sister’s bridal shower.  I thought that the sentiment was lovely for commemorating the beginning of my sister’s new life with her husband.  You can also add magnets to the back of these pads and keep them on the refrigerator.  You can purchase business card magnets with adhesive on them from most office supply stores.  They are perfect because they are strong enough to hold the pad in place on the fridge.

A Little Kindness with Kinda Eclectic – Stampin’ Up!

Okay, I know I said I was probably not going to post this week since we are so busy with preparations for my sister’s wedding, but what can I say… I got a burst of energy and decided to get to typing!  Today’s project is a cute card created with the Kinda Eclectic stamp set from Stampin’ Up!  This set is one that was at the top of my “must have” list for the new catalog.  I just love it!

Kinda Eclectic (5 of 6)

I’ve been playing around with layering and different uses for my Designer Series Paper this week.  I just love the Typeset DSP that I used for the torn banners on this card.

Kinda Eclectic (2 of 6)

I am also enjoying combining multiple images to create dynamic backgrounds.  This is a little different than my usual style, but I like it!

Kinda Eclectic (3 of 6)

For a finishing touch on the inside of my card, I stamped the polka dot border image and some butterflies on a panel of Very Vanilla card stock.  I love how the polka dots have words inside them.  It gives the stamp added texture and interest and also made it a great partner for the Typeset DSP.

Kinda Eclectic (4 of 6)

This project would make a great thank you card or a love note for a friend.  I am really pleased with how it turned out.  Please pin it to Pinterest if you are a fan of this card.  You will find a “pin it” button at the bottom of this post below the supply list and card stock cuts.  Also, please subscribe to my blog via email by clicking on the “follow” button if you enjoy reading my posts.

Everyday is a New Adventure with Project Life From Stampin’ Up!

It’s Thursday, and that means it’s time for more Project Life posts from me and Amy Koenders!  I love this “Every Day is a New Adventure” card from the Everyday Adventure Project Life Card Collection.  The colors remind me of spring time.

Project Life Everyday Adventure (1 of 6)

I combined three different journal cards from the Everyday Adventure Project Life Card Collection to create the front of my card.  Then I sponged around the edges with Bermuda Bay ink.  I added some Soft Sky Taffeta Ribbon and some flowers and butterflies created with the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack and the Bitty Butterfly Punch.  Finally, I punched a butterfly in the center of a scrap of card stock and used it as a mask to sponge two butterflies with Bermuda Bay and Pistachio Pudding ink.

I finished off the inside of my card by sponging butterflies in Pistachio Pudding, Soft Sky, and Bermuda Bay ink on a panel of Whisper White card stock using the same masking technique employed on the front of the card.
