Brayer card & NEW Craft Room Tour, Stampin’ Up!

Well hello stampers! How do you like my updated craft room? It was certainly fun to get everyone out and all FINALLY organized! I have a place for everything now……WAIT, well that is until something new and fun comes out anyway 😉

Have you tried to create this beautiful card yet? It was so fun, and the funny thing about watercoloring or brayering, is it changes. It changes as you color, it changes as you add, and it completely changes once it is fully dry. I you haven’t tried it you should, I can almost guarantee that any card will turn out wonderfully. Especially if you give it time to dry. So if you do give this a go, and you don’t like, come back and peek at it the next morning, and I promise it will be a one of a kind beauty, just like you!

Full instructions are in the video , so be sure to give it a look, and you will also find some tips on how to smooth out your image if you are not happy with it.

Base card: Night of Navy 4 1/4″ by 11″, scored at 5 1/2″

Layer: Delightful Dijon 4″by 5 1/4″

Layer:  Very Vanilla 3 3/4″ by 5″

Thanks for stopping by,

Until next time……

Stay Crafty!

Stampin’: Old and New

Last night I decided to brainstorm a few ideas , since Sale A Bration is ending and the new catalog will be coming out soon. We don’t know which sets will stay and which will go, but I found a new one that has really won me over in versatility, and an old tried and true to show off!  The Hello, Sailor is sadly retired, but there are several other sea themed sets( and you know I own them all), that would substitute beautifully! The Hardwood Background stamp is so cool….use it as a fence, floor, deck….it’s really interchangeable. Also, just in the different types of wood it could be!

The first card has a Mint Macaron base of 4 1/4″ by 11″ , scored at 5 1/2″ , so it is a vertical stand card. I used a piece of the Perfectly Artistic DSP, that is in the SAB catty. I used the greenish shade as I thought it went the best colorwise, and attached with Snail adhesive. It’s cut at 4″ by 5 1/4″. I added strips of Mint Macaron, 4 to be exact, measured at 1″ by 4 1/4″ and sponged the edges in Mint Macaron as well, placed on again with Snail. Then I used a piece of Watermelon Wonder 2 7/8″ by 4 7/8″ , sponged in the matching ink and a piece of Whisper White at 2 6/8″ by 4 6/8″. I stamped the leaves in Mint Macaron, and flower in Watermelon Wonder. These were attached with Snail as well. I used the 2 3/8″ Scallop Punch in Watermelon Wonder, and the 1 3/4″ Circle Punch in Whisper White. I popped each of those two up on dimensionals. Then, finally added a bow in the Whisper White Stitched Satin ribbon. Also, my new FAVORITE, Wink of Stella on the Mint sweep.

Side note: I am not a glitter fan…..for me it never ends up where I want, so it’s usually all over me. HOWEVER…..I LOVE the Wink of Stella, I truly have added it to almost every new card I’ve made since it was delivered……and even re-embellished a few old cards too!

OK, back to our regularly scheduled stamping….. 🙂

For the second card, I used Tempting Turquoise as the base, again a vertical card.

Base: 4 1/4″ by 11″, scored at 5 1/2″

Second layer: Crumb Cake 4″ by 5 1/4″, I used the Hardwood Background stamp in Early Espresso and sponged the edges as well.

Top Layer: 2 1/2″ by 4 2/8″ piece of Crumb Cake, stamped again with the Hardwood, but this time in Crumb Cake, sponged the edges as well. I cut a notch to make it a banner style layer.

I used a piece of the Whisper White Stitched Satin Ribbon, and used my dauber to add Tempting Turquoise until I got the shade I liked.

I also used a piece of Crumb Cake on the inside to keep the more masculine tone of the card.

Again, sadly the Hello, Sailor set is RETIRED :(….but there are many other Nautical or Nature stamp set you could substitute in…..Sorry about that!

Hope these hold you over until tomorrow….I have a really cute video to share with Y O U!!

Till next time;)

Six Sided Sampler version 2.0, Stampin’ Up

I found this simply, beautiful card on Pinterest. It is so pure and light and airy I just had to make it, and I finally got my Wink of Stella brush in the mail….. I just couldn’t resist!

 

Card base is Tip Top Taupe cut at 5 1/2″ by 4 1/4″, second layer is Marina Mist cut at 5 1/4″ by 4″, then Whisper White cut at 5 1/8″ by 3 7/8″. I stamped 5 hexagons of the various patterns from the Six Sided Sampler onto Whisper White, and punched them out with the coordinating Hexagon Punch. I tested out the arrangement of the hexagons,  then stamped the splatter stamp from Timeless Textures in Tip Top Taupe. I secured them all down with Snail adhesive, then I cut a piece of the clear glitter tape( which came today as well) in half lengthwise and slipped it right along the bottom edge of the hexagons. I went back in and added some Wink of Stella through the splattered areas. I thought the small heart punch was cute but decided to curl the whole heart with my bone folder to rough it up. On card #1 I actually worked the card stock hard enough,  that I was able to split it in half and put the rough or “suede side” facing up. On card #2, I added a second heart in Marina Mist that I roughed up with the bone folder as well. All the hearts are popped up into dimensionals with a few Pearls on the solo heart!

Simple. Pure. Beautiful.

Just as life should be, Enjoy your day!

Extra, Extra!!!  Sale a bration is  coming to a close very soon:-( Get it while you can , one free SAB item with every $50 purchase…..ends March 31,2016.

Now on to this simple card…..

 

Just for you #1
 
 

All three cards have a base of 4 1/4″ by 11″ , scored at 5 1/2″. Two have a Basic Black card base, one is done in Tip Top Taupe. Also you will need several pieces of Whisper White, two cut at 4″ by 5 1/4″, 1 for the front and 1 for the inside panel, and 1 additional piece to stamp own design onto. Since I did the card fronts three different ways, you’ll have to choose which style you want. #1 card pop up measures 3 1/2″ by 4 1/4″. #2 card pop up measures 3 3/4″ by 4 1/2″. The final card #3 has two layers to it,Maybe not Macaron at 3″ by 4 3/4″, Whisper White at 2 3/4″ by 4 1/2″,  and really you could do a second layer to any of these cards to give it an extra poppy depth! Add a few Pearl Jewels and it makes such a pretty, yet simple card.
