A Wish for Everything Square Card

Hello Kre8tors and welcome back! I’m so excited to share a beautiful card with you today. This card features the Flowering Foils Specialty Designer Series Paper from the second release Sale-A-Bration items. It’s FREE with a $50 purchase. I paired it with the A Wish For Everything Bundle and love how they work together!

I wanted to color in these beautiful flowers, so I used my Stampin’ Blends in an array of colors to make these flowers really pop. I used a combination of light and dark blends to create shadowing effects on the roses and leaves.

This card is not a standard size. Because I was delivering this to someone very special in person, I wanted to make a card size that I wouldn’t typically make since I didn’t have to mail it! It’s fun to give cards in person and be able to have full creative license and not have to stick to rigid guidelines for sending in the mail without extra postage.

I used the beautiful Flowering Foils Specialty DSP and colored in the roses with a variety of Stampin’ Blends markers. It was so much fun to color in the paper and it was very relaxing, too. It’s nice to find something relaxing to do to take my mind off things.

I fussy cut around the edges of the flowers and then glued this piece to the top of my card base. I added a few Champagne Rhinestones around the cluster of flowers for some bling. I used my Stampin’ Blend markers to color in an ombre background, and used that to cut out the word happy with the Word Wishes dies. Then I used the coordinating stamp ‘wishes’ from the A Word For Everything stamp set and heat embossed it with Silver Stampin’ Emboss Powder.

This card went to a very special family and I’m so glad I could brighten their day with a handmade card. I know a lot of people that could use a little smile right now, so I’ll be making a lot of cards, I’m sure!

5,000 YouTube Subscriber Special & Giveaway

Hello Kre8tors! I’m so very excited to finally be posting my 5,000 YouTube Subscriber Special! I’ve been posting my video tutorials on YouTube since 2016 and am so excited to be hitting this milestone. Thank you so much for all of your support and encouragement over the years. This community is so wonderful and I’m so lucky to have all of you supporting me in doing what I love!

Be sure to head over to my Specials page for your chance to enter to win 1 of 2 Stampin’ Up! Tote Bags!

I have a VERY special project and tutorial for you today. I was definitely inspired by the Coastal Crafter, Emma Goddard’s beautiful cards using the Flowering Foils Designer Series Paper, a FREE Sale-A-Bration item, from the second release, with a qualifying purchase. She is a member of the 2020 Stampin’ Up! Artisan Design Team. You can check out her beautiful work by visiting her website and following her on Instagram.

I decided to use her card as a baseline to create mine. The background has a very geometric characteristic, so I’m calling this technique the Geometric Cut technique. You can see how I go about it in my YouTube tutorial, which you can watch below or on my channel.

I started by using the Petal Pink Classic Stampin’ Pad to color in the Golden Honey Designer Series Paper using a variety of techniques ranging from sponging, daubing, watercoloring, and direct to paper. I love how each one of them turned out, and am excited to play around with more techniques soon.

After I had my DSP colored in, I cut all the pieces I needed from the Gold Foil and Basic Gray card stock. Then I used the Geometric Cut technique to cut each of the three main papers the exact same way so they would come back together like a puzzle piece when I swapped them around.

After building my background, I worked on stamping, embossing, die cutting, and adhering all the little pieces to the front of the card. I am in LOVE with the Honey Bee Bundle and thought it would be PERFECT for this rose gold style card. I’m going to use these as the Thank You cards I send to my customers this month!

I also added some Rose Gold Metallic Thread and Champagne Rhinestones for a little extra pizzazz! These additional elements have the perfect touch to finish off this WOW card, I am just so in love with it. I think it might have something to do with my love for anything and everything Rose Gold!

Stamper’s Showcase All You Need is Love

Hello Kre8tors and welcome to another Blog Hop! I’m Melissa Tennison and I’m an Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator in Oregon, USA. We are hopping with the Stampers Showcase Blog Hop today! Be sure to scroll down to the bottom of the post and click that Next button when you’re done here to hop along to the next amazing project!

The projects I’m sharing with you today are a couple of masculine cards featuring brayer colored hearts and silver heat embossing. I have never played with brayers before, but after making these brayer colored hearts, I think I’m in love!

For the first card, I put down a silver foil mat, then cut out a heart using the Be Mine Stitched Dies. I also brayer colored a scrap of Whisper White cardstock with Pretty Peacock and Mango Melody. Then I cut some smaller hearts out of that.

I heat embossed my sentiment in silver embossing powder on a piece of vellum. Behind the vellum is a small strip of Pretty Peacock cardstock to accentuate the sentiment.

I had quite a few pieces left over, so I decided to make a second card. For the large heart, I used the die cut from the previous card and heat embossed the sentiment in silver embossing powder.

Then I used the leftover brayer colored hearts and staggered them using dimensionals and glue dots. I love how these colored hearts turned out! Have you used a brayer before? I highly recommend you give it a try! It’s so much fun seeing the colors roll and blend. Take a peek at my video tutorial below!

Measurements:

Card Bases: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, Score @ 4-1/4″
Silver Foil and Pretty Peacock Mats: 4″ x 5-1/4″
Whisper White Mat for Card 1: 3-3/4″ x 5″
Pretty Peacock Strip for Card 1: 1-1/4″ x 4-1/4″
Vellum Strip for Card 1: 1-1/2″ x 4-1/4″
Scrap Whisper White for Hearts

In The Trees Black Emboss Technique

Have you ever had a project that you wanted to use black embossing powder on but couldn’t find any? Good news, you can emboss in black without having to use black embossing powder! Today’s project features a set from the Occasions catalog that launched this month, In The Trees. I really love this set, and knew right away I wanted to emboss the tree before coloring it. I love how the embossing powder adds texture and shimmer to this project.

The colors I used for the leaves are Tranquil Tide and Lemon Lime Twist. I think the contrast between the light and dark leaves is beautiful. The Soft Suede tree trunk adds a nice, natural element.

I also used the Aqua Painter with Soft Sky for the shadow under my tree. I love the watercolor effect this gives my card, but a Blender Pen would work really well, too.

Measurements:

Whisper White Cardbase: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, score @ 4-1/4″

Petal Palette Split Coloring Technique Card

Okay, it’s no surprise how much I am digging on Petal Palette. I really hope you’re a fan of this stamp set, because I’ve made a couple projects with it so far (Wedding Card and a Top Secret Project TBA), and I have a LOT more planned. I think the split coloring technique looks awesome with this set!

If you’re not a fan of the basic black strip across the card, you could certainly use ribbon. That would look LOVELY! I can just picture this card in all sorts of color combinations!
What color would you use?

Measurements:

Rich Razzleberry Cardbase: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, score @ 4-1/4″
Whisper White Mat: 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″
Basic Black Strip: 1/2″ x 5-1/2″
