Beautiful Day Stamp Set

20180325_191728

Here is a "comparison" for you today! Two different ways to use the lovely images from Beautiful Day Stamp Set #145915. This red butterfly on vellum, emphasizes the boldness of the outline. 

20180325_191735

That emphasis is achieved by using ANY dark color ink for this image.

20180325_191745

This time the outline is a light ink which gives a totally different effect. The colors in the wings are more prominent now. The outlines are secondary. The ink is Soft Sky for the image, colored with Bermuda Bay, Pool Party and Old Olive Blends.

20180325_191751

 Try both dark and light outlines for totally different results!

Southern Serenade plus Vellum

20180325_191841

I NEVER have enough floral images! Southern Serenade Stamp Set #145921 has a lovely lacey image to pair with the floral. I got out Vellum #101856 which I have neglected far too long! This is the "Stained Glass" Technique. Stamp the image on Vellum, dry, color on the BACKSIDE. It's a nice soft look. This is Pink Pirouette cardstock and Blends. Stampin' Write Markers can be used as well.

20180325_191815

I scored the left edge of the vellum and wrapped it around the back of the layer to attach. I "hid" a glue dot on the back of a flower center to keep the Vellum flap in place.

20180325_191905

Another version - I used Blushing Bride Cardstock and Light Calypso Coral Blends on Vellum. This is a special sympathy card that has already gone in the mailbox.

20180325_191919

Try this good old "Stained Glass" Technique!! I'm sorry Blends are sold out at the moment, but never fear - they are coming! Keep them on your Wish List!

Stamparatus Practice

20180310_090925

I've been excited to begin learning about my STAMPARATUS!! It's a wonderful new advanced stamp positioner by Stampin' Up! Like any new tool, there is a learning curve - working out a system that functions well for me. This big bold "HELLO" from Hello Friend Stamp Set #144059 was my first try!

20180310_090906

My second try was an angled sentiment. Perfect alignment is EASY and QUICK!

20180310_090842

I really like the EXACT PLACEMENT RESULTS I got with the Stamparatus! I'm off to play more...such a FUN JOB I have!! This handy, dandy new tool, the Stamparatus, will be available in the next Annual Catalog in early June! Put it on your Wish List!

Punch Art Bunnies Multiply

  20180306_091910

For over a decade this punch art Bunny has been a HIT!! His name is Pete...and Repeat...and Repeat!! LOL He has a way of multiplying because he is so happy and adorable!!

  20180306_092453

Here is my trick: I like to make a template for the eyes because eye placement can "make or break" a cute little face! Punch two 1/8" holes about in the center of a 1-3/8" circle of Thick Whisper White Card Stock to create your pattern. Lay this template over a punched 1-3/8" Circle and fill in completely with a black Journaling Pen.

    One pink nose - 1/4" Circle

    Two white cheeks - 1/2" Circle, Dimensionalized

    One white head - 1-3/8" Circle, mark eyes with template (above)

    Two white ears - smallest oval in Stitched Shapes Framelit Dies, lightly sponged pink

    One colored layer - 2-5/8" square in Stitched Shapes Framelit Dies # 145372

20180306_092323

  The colored layer is Bundle of Love Specialty Designer Series Paper #144143.
