YOUR DAY WITH THE BEAUTIFUL PEACOCK

The Beautiful Peacock stamp set is just that – Beautiful!  So I had lots of fun creating this card with it.

As you can see, there are quite a few things going on here.  I started with a piece of Shimmery White cardstock an Aqua Painter and the new Brusho® Crystal Colour.  I simply applied a wash of water on the paper and then sprinkled the Yellow crystals over it and let them dry.

In the meantime I stamped the peacock body onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock and cut it out.  The fan and white flourish were heat embossed with white onto a piece of Vellum and, yes, cut out.  All of the pieces were then put together using Mini Glue Dots and then attached to the main panel with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added two 3/8″ strips of the Myths & Magic Glimmer Paper to the edges using our tough and really sticky Tear & Tape Adhesive and attached the entire piece to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Here’s the full list of products that I used so you can give this a try yourself.  If you need any of the products, just click on the picture and it will take you directly to my Online Store.

FOR AN AWESOME GRANDSON

Our eldest grandson is turning 14 this month (where-oh-where does the time go?) and he likes music so…….I played around with the Sale-A-Bration set, Epic Celebrations.

This set has a set of headphones image as well so is perfect for the music lover.  Since it does have a music theme, I used the Sheet Music background stamp for just a hint of a musical background.  The stamp was inked up with Smokey Slate and then “stamped off” onto a scrap of paper before it was added to the card front piece.  I l love the way it turned out.

To give those cool runners a bit of a kick, I added touches of black with the sharp end of our Stampin’ Write Markers.

Three of the colours(Tranquil Tide, Lemon Lime Twist and Dapper Denim) that I used are part of The Paper Players challenge this week.

Here’s the list of ingredients for you.

ON THE WATERFRONT WITH FRIENDS

Hi and welcome to this tropical post!  I played around with the Waterfront stamp set and gave it a bit of a tropical feeling.  I’m sure most of us would like a little tropical weather right now!

This is a great stamp set and can be found on page 48 of the 2018 Occasions Catalogue.  It was easy to add that piece of designer paper from the Delightful Daisy package for the background so it would highlight that soft tropical beach.

You could make this pretty stamp set a part of your collection just by Hosting your own stamping party.  You can also earn Free selections from the Sale-A-Bration catalogue with qualifying sales at your party.  Want more info?  Contact me so we can talk.

STARTING THE WEEK OFF WITH A LITTLE BIRTHDAY WIT

Happy Monday and welcome as I start the week off with a little Birthday Wit!

The Birthday Wit stamp set(Page 9 Occasions Catalogue)has some really funny greetings and I love the one I used on today’s card.  Yup, sometimes I forget a birthday and this greeting is perfect to let that person know that I am thinking of them!

I wanted to make this one for the guys and followed along with Freshly Made Sketches for this simple layout.

Of course, I couldn’t forget to use the Celebrate You Thinlits dies that are just one of the great Free selections from the Stampin’ Up! Sale-A-Bration Catalogue!

By the way……..this is the 4th card that we will be making in my Wednesday, January17th card class!  Sign Up Here.

I’m using the Amazing You stamp set and matching Celebrate You Thinlits Dies for today’s card.  Both of these excellent products are available as a FREE choice in the Sale-A-Bration Catalogue.

You can find them on pages 16 & 17 along with some amazing samples to give you more inspiration.

Note that I used three colours for the “celebrate”!  The entire word was cut out with Powder Pink, Calypso Coral and Gold Foil.  Then I cut the Gold Foil and Calypso Coral into pieces and glued each piece over the main part using our fabulous Liquid Multipurpose Glue.

NEED A BIRTHDAY CARD?

Do you need a birthday card?  I created this one with the hilarious Birthday Wit stamp set and a little Brusho®Crystal Colour!

I was really excited to see that Stampin’ Up! has added the Brusho®Crystal Colour to their line-up and couldn’t wait to give it a try.  I started out with a simple application for the background of that very funny greeting!

TIP:  The very first thing you should do is poke about 2-3 holes in the lid of each container to avoid ending up with those tiny crystals all over your working space.

Then, you can cover them with a small piece of tape to keep them from “escaping”.

It is recommended that you use Shimmery White or Watercolour Paper for this technique.  Apply a few drops of water, sprinkle the crystals and then use an Aqua Painter to spread them around.  Let it dry and then stamp the image over top.  Presto, a really great, instant background!

Here’s a video showing a few ideas for using Brusho®Crystal Colour.

Have fun with this and Happy Stamping!

SUNSHINE, RAINBOWS AND A LITTLE RAIN

Sunshine and a little rain make rainbows and today’s card shows that perfectly.

I had a ton of fun using the Sunshine & Rainbows bundle.  The Rainbow Builder Framelits dies made it easy to create that colourful rainbow.  All of the curved pieces in the framelits package fit very nicely together!   And….if you look very closely you will see that I added the new Glitter & Clear Epoxy Shapes to highlight just a few of those falling raindrops.  It was so much fun to create this pretty card!

Here’s the full list of everything I used to create today’s rainbow card.

TREATS FOR THE SWEET

I’ve got some sweet treats for today compliments of the A Good Day stamp set from the Occasions catalogue.

These sweet images are great for a somewhat tropical feel since we’ve all been having some pretty nasty weather lately.  Coincidently, the card base is Bermuda Bay which really says warm and tropical!

Note that cute little wooden embroidery hoop on the centre image!  I used a few drops of our tough Liquid Multipurpose Glue to adhere the image and then added Stampin’ Dimensionals to pop it up on the card front.

Many colour families of Stampin’ Write Markers were used to colour each image and I also added just a touch of Wink of Stella to put a shine on the ice cubes in each glass.

Here’s the full list of products for you.

Have a great Stamping-ly perfect day!
