A Lemon Lime Twist on a Lovely Tree, Stampin’ Up!

Hi stampers!

Ever notice how I get on a roll with something ? It is funny, I can not use s stamp set forever, then I will also never put it away.

This is another reboot from some time ago, the prior card I did White Craft ink onto Early Espresso card stock.

I must say I am a HUGE fan of Navy and Lime, they go together so well and really compliment each other. You will need to make sure to add drying time in for the craft ink so you do not smudge it 🙂

I added a line of the Silver Mini Sequins as a touch of bling, but you could totally do without.

 

What will you create? Be sure to share some images onto the Rachthestamper page, I love to see your versions!

 

Until next time,

Stay Crafty

Lovely as an All Occasion card, Stampin’ Up!

Hi stampers!

I recreated a lovely card I made some years ago that was inspired by my upline Tami White!

In this version I used Powder Pink and made a very soft looking card. This is also not a card that has to be Christmasy, you can make into many different occasions.

Actually that is why I did not add a sentiment so it can be open tomorrow interpretation for any of your card needs!

It was very easy and would be simple to mass produce.

Until next time,

Stay Crafty

Northern Lights Lovely as a Tree, Stampin’ Up!

Hi stampers!

Don’t you just love this beauty? It was so super fun to create and I guarantee it will be a one of a kind masterpiece your friends will be so happy to receive!

This technique and color scheme was given to me by a Facebook Live viewer Breina, so we have her to thank for this  bit of awesomeness.

There are only three colors, four if you count black, but the colors Blends to make so many others it looks like a lot of white to but is really quite simple.

You’ll want to heat emboss the Trees from Lovely as a Tree in White Emboss powder onto a 4″ by 5 1/4″ layer of Whisper White. Then starting lightest to darkest you’ll add in colors with your sponge daubers.

I used Lemon Lime Twist, Tempting Turquoise and Berry Burst and then added in Archival Black ink.

You can create a mask with paper or post it notes if you want more defined edges and you can also add Black inbetween colors if you have any to keep them more concentrated in hue.

I love the way the card turned out even though I have seen a ton of these in example and I really was a bit leery when I was making it.

When you take a step back and let it dry and attach it to a base, I think you will swoon too!!

 

 

Until next time,

Stay Crafty

Merriest Christmas Wishes , Stampin’ Up!

Hello Stampers!

This card is made oh so simple by adding some of your favorite Designer Series Paper to a card base, then making it shine with Silver Emboss powder.

I added some Real Red sponged on the edges to bring it together with the Real Red card base. The Old Olive 1/8″ Ribbon added a touch of Christmas Green and finally a pop of sparkle with the Clear Faceted Gems.

I finished the inside with a beautiful sentiment and added the Tree by coloring each part with the Stampin’ Write markers to make it look like a mini ornament.

Hope you have fun creating your version!

Stay tuned for a new idea each day up through Christmas Eve:)

Until next time,

Stay Crafty

2017 Clearance Retirement List, 2017 Holiday Catalog, Heat Embossing, Something Old & Something New, Stampin' Up, Watercoloring

Watercolor Emboss Resist with Lovely as a Tree, Stampin’ Up!

Hi stampers!

In case you missed it, today December 11th 2018 is FREE SHIPPING all day! From midnight to 11:59pm MT everything ships free! You can get everything to create this beautiful card and it can ship for free:)

I created this card with Watercolor Paper, which I embossed the line of trees from the Lovely as a Tree stamp set. I used Clear embossing powder but I think White embossing powder would make it all pop so much more!

I used reinkers in this order

Soft Sky

Island Indigo

Perfect Plum

Night of Navy

You apply a drop or two of reinker to a window sheet, it doesn’t have to be very large, and add a few drops of water to spread the color around a bit then you’ll flip the window sheet down and smoosh it onto the trees, repeat with all the colors until it looks like you want it to. If you want a softer look, wet the Watercolor paper down with some water before the above steps.

Also a tip, you may not like your product, it is a bit intense until it dries some, but let it dry or hot it with your heat till to dry it out and I know you’ll love it too!

I finished by Heat embossing the sentiment with Silver Emboss powder onto a scrap of Thick Whisper White card stock and popped it up on a dimensional.

I added the trees to another 4″ by 5 1/4″ Whisper White panel with Always Artichoke ink and then added the sentiment with Perfect Plum ink. I also filled in some shading under the trees with Night of Navy ink and added some depth to the trees by adding Pear Pizzazz ink to the center of the trees and finished with a few touches of White Gel Pen.

Hope you’ll give this card a try! Stay tuned for a new card every day until Christmas Eve!

Until next time,

Stay Crafty

A Season of Scraps with Watercolor Christmas, Stampin’ Up!

Hello Stampers!

This is a fun, quick and easy card, and also a GREAT way to use up scraps!

The main layer of the card is 3 3/4″ so all the strips are about a 1/2″ by 3 3/4″. I just used whichever pieces I have laying around and I added in the Champagne Foil I had leftover trimmed up from the Wise Men card I made several days ago! I Also popped it up on dimensionals to give it some extra pop!

 

So easy and fun and really with endless possibilities too!

Quick tip, I used a Swiffer cloth to wipe off the excess Embossing Buddy powder after the White Embossing Powder dried.

 

Hope you have fun creating your version!

Stay tuned for a new idea each day up through Christmas Eve:)

Until next time,

Stay Crafty

Wise Men From Afar, Stampin’ Up!

Hi stampers!

This set is one I wanted from first sight of the Holiday Catalog, but I held off. I will admit, I have made a ton of cards with it since receiving it Wednesday!

I have another version I’ll share tomorrow, but this one was done as a mixed metals look with Silver, Copper and Gold embossing powder and then I added some Champagne Foil to round it out!

What do you think? Are you inspired?!?

Let me know what you’ll create and I’ll share my tone on tone version tomorrow:)

Until next time,
