Blossoming Basket Card and Stampin’Blends Alcohol Markers


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.


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.

Don’t Forget! Sale-a-bration is coming to a close on March 31. You can get this bundle of products that includes the Basket Weave Dynamic Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder and Blossoming Basket stamp set for FREE with a purchase of $100 (before shipping and tax) in my online store. This purchase would also qualify you for a FREE offer of  a Layered Leaves Textured Embossing Folder valued at $9.00 from me if you use the March Host Code TF6TZZM3 when you order.  More info on how this offer works is here.

I hope you like my card and it inspires you to CREATE!

Bubble Over Bundle


This is a colorful card isn’t it? So bright and kinda sassy! This card is made with the new Bubble Over Bundle from the Stampin’Up! Occasions Catalog. The bundle includes the Bubble Over Photopolymer Stamp set and the Bottles and Bubbles Framelits Dies.  You save 10% when you buy the bundle but you can purchase them individually.


Don’t you just love the details in this bundle? There is a framelit to cut the bottle tops out! I used silver foil cardstock for the bottle tops. I used the Glitter and Clear Epoxy Shapes, also sold in the Occasions Catalog, to accent the small bubbles. I used some sequins to enhance the larger bubbles. I am often inspired by other stampers and the inspiration for this card from Vicky Wright’s card, she is a Stampin’Up Demonstrator in Australia.


The Bubbles and Fizz Designer Series Paper is FREE with a $50 (before shipping and tax) purchase because it is a Sale-a-bration offering.

The bottles were cut out with the appropriate framelit and then colored by running the sponge brayer over the stamp pad and then over the bottle in a back and forth motion.

I hope you like my card and it inspires you to CREATE!
