Stamp ‘N Hop Blog Hop – Anything Occasions with In The Trees

I’m super excited to be part of a wonderful blog hop group, Stamp ‘N Hop! This month’s theme is Anything Occasions, so I’ll be showcasing the beautiful In The Trees set! I have only really used this set on one other card, my In The Trees Black Emboss Technique but I see so much potential! This stamp set reminds me of spring, and it’s only just starting to warm up here in Oregon USA.

The Stamp ‘N Hop Blog Hop will publish every 2nd Saturday so be sure to keep checking back. Don’t forget to click the Next button at the bottom of this post to keep the hop going for more fun!

This card is so adorable and has a LOT of fussy cutting and coloring involved. It is not a Clean & Quick style card, for sure! However, if you are looking for a card that sparks your creativity and allows you to listen to music, or watch television while crafting, this is a great way to relax for lots of stampers!

This card features the In The Trees stamp set, with several of the stamps colored, cut, and adhered to the Whisper White card mat. I used my Old Olive Stampin’ Blends duo of light and dark to color in the trees, as well as a Soft Suede Stampin’ Write Marker.
I used Pacific Point with an Aqua Painter to color in the hammock, and accent the clouds.
The light strings have the look of a real bulb using the Glitter & Clear Epoxy Shapes.

This card sure does make me feel like relaxing in the shade of some tall trees on a hammock while sipping some cool lemonade.

Measurements:

Pacific Point Cardbase: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, score @ 4-1/4″
Daffodil Delight Mat 2: 4″ x 5-1/4″
Whisper White Mat 1: 3-3/4″ x 5″
Whisper White Banner: 1/2″ x 3-3/4″
Whisper White Scraps

Clean & Quick Cards SERIES 19 – Panda Party

Today we are “hanging out” with the adorable panda from Party Pandas. He’s casually hanging from his balloon with a sentiment from the Occasions Catalog stamp set In The Trees that reads “We need to hang out more.” I love this sentiment paired with the adorable Party Pandas set. The only way you can get this adorable panda is for FREE during Sale-A-Bration happening right now!

I’ve used the Stampin’ Write Markers set of In Colors for 2016 – 2018. The colors I used are Dapper Denim for the shadow below the panda, and Flirty Flamingo for the shading on the balloon. I used a Blender Pen to fade the colors out slightly and used a technique where you color with the markers on an acrylic block to pick up the ink with the Blender Pen.

This technique would also work well with the Aqua Painters, although I would recommend using our Watercolor Paper if you use the Aqua Painters. The Watercolor Paper is specifically made to help soak up that water and leave a beautiful color without the paper “pilling” or warping too much.

By purchasing the basics below to make this card, you can earn the Party Pandas stamp set for FREE during Sale-A-Bration!

Very Vanilla Cardbase: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, score @ 4-1/4″

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″
