Floral Boutique DSP

Hello,

The Floral Boutique Designer Series Paper (#141663) has been used for the background on today's card. This set of DSP has a lovely range of patterns in Night Of Navy and Whisper White.

 

I used Whisper White card (#106549) for the base card, the square and the banner for the sentiment. The square is cut with the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies (#145372). This was attached to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals (#104430). The dragonfly was cut with the Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits Dies (#142749) from the Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper (#135315) and also attached with Stampin' Dimensionals. Happy Birthday is from the Guy Greetings stamp set (#c138828, #w138825, #p137178) and stamped with Night Of Navy ink (#126970) and cut with the Banner Framelits (#132173).

Till next time,

Happy Stamping!

Watercolour Wash with Big On Birthdays

Hello again,

The Watercolor Wash stamp (#c139538, #w138708) is a background stamp which I have used for the background on this card.

 

The base card is Pumpkin Pie (#108601). I used Crumb Cake ink (#126975) to stamp the background on Very Vanilla card (#106550). The sentiment from Big On Birthdays stamp set (#p142877) was stamped with Pumpkin Pie ink (#126945). The flowers were cut from Pumpkin Pie card (#108601) and Very Vanilla card, using the Flourish Thinlits  (#141478). The ribbon is from the 3/8" Metallic Ribbon Combo Pack (#143601) from Sale-a-bration. I added a Pearl Basic Jewel (#119247) to the centre of the flower. The Fine-tip Glue Pen (#138309) was used to attach the flowers to the card. Don't forget to replace the cap immediately on this glue pen so the tip doesn't get blocked.

Have a great weekend.


Till next time,

Happy Stamping!


Lesley.

Flourishing Phrases with Falling Petals

Hi,

For the embossing on this card I have used the Falling Petals Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (#142761).

 

The cardstock is Very Vanilla (#106550) and Peekaboo Peach (#141422). After embossing the card front I gently sponged the raised petals with Peekaboo Peach ink (#141398). The flower is from the Flourishing Phrases stamp set (#c141538, #w141531) and also stamped with Peekaboo Peach ink. The scalloped circles were cut using the Layering Circles Framelits (#141705). I added a Falling In Love Embellishment (#142791) to the flower. Happy Birthday is from the Balloon Celebration stamp set (#p140675). This was cut with a framelit from the Project Life Cards & Labels (#135707). You might be thinking that this looks shorter than the framelit in this set. Well yes it is. To make it shorter, firstly place the framelit closer to the "H", so there will be more space at the end. Then after cutting, place the framelit the same distance from the "y" and recut, as shown below.

 

The ribbon is the 3/8" Ruched Ribbon in Peekaboo Peach (#141427). When I attach ribbon to a card I put tape on the card rather than the ribbon. I find this easier for me. Then when possible, tuck it under the card front so ther are no raw edges showing on the card. The sentiment was then attached over the ribbon with Stampin' Dimensionals (#104430). The circles were also attached with Dimensionals.

Hopefully today will see the end of this heatwave. Keep cool everyone.

Over the next few weeks I won't be able to do a daily blog, but will hopefully do at least 2 a week.

Till next time,

Happy Stamping!


Lesley.

Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper

Hi,

Did you know that you can stamp on the Dazzling Diamond Glimmer paper (#135315)? Well, you can stamp on the other colours but would need to use a darker coloured ink.

 

I have stamped the balloons from the Balloon Celebration stamp set (#p140675) using Sweet Sugarplum ink (#141395) onto the Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper. The balloons were then punched with the Balloon Bouquet punch (#140609). These are the smaller balloons. The square was cut with the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies (#145372), then I coloured the card with Sweet Sugarplum ink using an Aqua Painter (#103954). The balloon strings are also from the Balloon Celebration set. The banner and greeting are from the Birthday Banners stamp set (#p141506) and the banner was cut with the co-ordinating Bunch Of Banners Framelits (#141488). This was attached to the card with Stamping Dimensionals (#104430). The bow is from the Pretty Pines Thinlits Dies (#141851) that was in the Holiday catalogue and can still be ordered. This was attached with a Glue Dot (#103683). The Whisper White base card (#106549) was embossed with the Softly Falling Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (#139672), the bow is Sweet Sugarplum (#141423) and the square is Shimmery White card (#121717).

Have a great weekend.

Till next time,

Happy Stamping!

Big On Birthdays

Hello again,

These cards were inspired by one of my ladies asking about colouring and blending colours on stamped images, then showing her water colouring backgrounds. It's not something I do very often so thought it was time to play with this method. I was happy with the results, so must do this more often.

 


 

For the top card, I used Shimmery White card (#121717) and the bottom card I used Watercolour Paper (#122959) to do the watercolouring. Both these types of cardstock are ideal when watercolouring. I used an Aqua Painter (#103954) to apply the ink to the card. Once you are happy with the colouring of the background, ensure it is dry before stamping. I dried it using the Heat Tool (#129056). The ink used was Pacific Point (#126951) for the top card and Bermuda Bay (#131171) for the other. The stamp set used is Big On Birthdays (#p142877) for the sentiment and flowers. I used Pacific Point card (#116202) with the Shimmery White card, and Very Vanilla (#106550) and Bermuda Bay (#131286) were used with the Watercolour Paper.

Till next time,

Happy Stamping!


Lesley.
