Blossoming Basket Card and Stampin’Blends Alcohol Markers

DSC_0011

I have another card for you today using the wonderful Blossoming Basket stamp set from theSale-a-bration brochure. I wanted to show you a different way to color the image. In my previous post using this stamp set I water colored the image using ink refills and the aqua painter. With this card, I used the Stampin’Blends Alcohol markers to color the image.

DSC_0012

I stamped the basket image on thick Whisper White cardstock using Tuxedo Black Memento Pad and colored the image with Rich Razzleberry Light Stampin’Blends. As you can tell I did not work too much with the blending on the flowers, I just simply colored the flowers with the Light Rich Razzleberry Stampin’Blend. I did go back and added more color in spots where I thought there would be shading and also removed some color with the Color Lifter marker. The alcohol marker I used is actually the old Blendability alcohol marker Stampin’Up! had a few years ago, so the color may vary some with the new Stampin’Blends. You can’t tell from the photo, but I did go over the blooms with Wink of Stella glitter brush for a little added sparkle.

I wanted to add dimension to my card so I stamped basket again and colored the blooms and cut them out. I then added them to the basket using Stampin’dimensionals. The colorful little butterfly is cut out by hand using the Paper Snips and mounted on the card with a glue dot.

Don’t you just love the Basket Weave Dynamic Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder? It creates an authentic basket weave design! Such a nice touch! I used Crumb Cake cardstock for the embossed basket weave panel. The basket was colored in with the Crumb Cake Stampin’Blend.

I embossed the basket image on watercolor paper using the Versamark Pad and white embossing powder. I then colored the image in with an aquapainter using Crumb Cake ink, old olive and Blushing Bride ink. Blushing Bride ink is very pale, so instead of just squeezing the stampin’pad to pick up ink on the lid, I used a drop of the ink refill. That way I got more intense Blushing Bride color for the blooms. I added a little Sahara Sand ink to the bottom of the basket just for a just watered plant look.

DSC_0012

The little butterfly image is just darling! I stamped him with the Black Archival Stampin’Pad and watercolored him with the Aquapainter using Old Olive, Blushing Bride and Crushed Curry ink. Using a drop from the refills to pick up the color. I embossed a strip of Crumb Cake Cardstock using the Basket Weave Dynamic Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder that comes with the bundle. I cut the Burlap Ribbon into strips for the little twine bow on the handle of the basket.

I just can’t get enough of this stamp set! This stamp set is called Party Pandas and it is FREE with a $50 purchase. I love the simplicity and the easy design options! This set is easy to work with it just took a few minutes to create these cards.

DSC_0004

Isn’t he cute! I just used black and white designer series paper and added a splash of red. I used the Stitched Shapes Framelits for the Whisper White oval panel and the Layering Oval Framelits for the scalloped oval.

Here is another idea

DSC_0006

New Host Code and Bubble Over Celebration Card

DSC_0018

Here is a happy card for you! It is certainly bright and cheery, perfect for a celebration! You could use this for a birthday or for a retirement card or perhaps a job promotion!

This card is made with the  Bubble Over Bundle of products from the Stampin’Up! Occasions Catalog.

DSC_0021

I like the details of this card, like the oval shapes behind the bottle. The little dashes around the edge really add a lot. I used the Stitched Shapes Framelits for the white oval and the Layering Ovals Framelits for the scalloped oval.  I added bubbles to the card using sequins and the Glitter and Clear Epoxy Shapes from the Occasions Catalog. The Epoxy Shapes include circle and teardrop or raindrop shapes.

DSC_0001

This is a Sale-a-bration stamp set called Lots of Lavender. You can earn FREE with a $50 purchase until March 31. This design is very similar to a card in an earlier post, it is just a little different layout. It is very simple! I just love this stamp set! It is so easy to work with. The image is totally colored by stamps in the set. Very clever of Stampin’Up! to design it this way. I added a couple of Gold Faceted Gems to the top and bottom of the card. The colors used are Wisteria Wonder, Pear Pizazz, Sahara Sand. The greeting comes from the Wild About Flowers stamp set.

Here is another idea with this stamp set

January Host Code and Coffee Break Class

DSC_0013

Here is another idea using the Coffee Cafe Photopoloymer Stamp Set.  I love the Coffee Break Designer Series Paper! All the images are fabulous! Some you can use with a non coffee theme stamp set too. It is great that Stampin’Up! Designer Series Papers are double sided.

Coffee Break Designer Series Paper

I decided to finish off the inside of my card. I fussy cut the coffee branch and glued it to the top edge of the card with TomBow Multipurpose glue.

DSC_0014

I stamped the coffee cup with Pool Party Stampin’Pad and cut it out using the Big Shot with the appropriate Coffee Cup Framelit. Just absolutely love the coffee beans!!!

DSC_0020

I cut strips from the Burlap ribbon to make the bow. It just tears very easy once you get started since the weave is not tight. I really like the greeting on the front of the card. It is such a simple joy, sharing a cup of coffee with a friend.

DSC_0016

I hope you like my project and it inspires you to CREATE! If you are a coffee enthusiast the Coffee Break Suite of products is for you! I know you would love working with it.
