How to stamp a background

20190427_100833

Bloom by Bloom stamp set #148820 is VERSATILE! Try creating your own background. Select 3-4 colors you like together. Start with the largest image using one of the colors. Stamp it spaced fairly evenly on your layer. Second, use the next to largest image and another color. Finish with the smallest image to "fill in between" the previous shapes. Secret: if there is an area that you are NOT satisfied with...cover it with the sentiment! 

20190427_100850

Since the background is busy, I used a solid color to frame the sentiment. It helps the eye "rest on the word."

20190427_100909

It's fun to experiment with different color combos! TRY IT!

I made up the lovely April 2019 Paper Pumpkin Kit, and I'm still designing with the gorgeous Sentimental Rose Stamp Set in this kit!! The BEST value of this subscription kit is the great stamp sets you receive and KEEP USING!

20190421_103523

This is a Panel Fold card for a very special occasion!

20190421_103612

Panel Card: cut the card base 8-1/2" X 5-1/2" and score at 2" and 3-1/8" from each side. SIMPLE and stands well for display! This fold fits a Stampin' Up! medium envelope which I covered with Silver Foil Paper embossed with Petal Pair Embossing Folder #145656.

20190421_103547

The roses were inked with Calypso Coral, Powder Pink, So Saffron and Highland Heather. The background on the side panels is Timeless Textures Stamp Set #140517 stamped in Gray Granite ink.

Beautiful Day Stamp Set

20190410_091532 (2)

Beautiful Day Stamp Set #145915 is my favorite stamp set for using Stampin' BLENDS alcohol marker. I love it's simple boldness. 

20190410_091620 (2)

I do not claim to be an artist, but using BLENDS gives me satisfaction! I color each flower petal individually. My method is color the entire petal with the light shade. Second, add the shading with the darker marker. Last, go over the edge where the light and dark meet with the light shade to soften. I used the Highland Heather Combo Pack of Blends Markers #147276.

20190410_091607 (2)

This is a nice "all-purpose" card to have on hand for many occasions! TRY IT!

Accented Blooms Stamp Set

20180927_085507

I'm not good at watercoloring. I really enjoy my BLENDS alcohol markers, though.  The color goes on smooth without streaking. The DUO shades make shading easier for me. I actually LIKE open image stamp sets now, that need coloring. It's relaxing!

This is the versatile Accented Blooms Stamp Set # 146681 paired with the coordinating Tailored Tag Punch # 145667. If you don't like to mail bulky ribbons, Stampin' Up! Twines are the answer!! Whisper White Solid Baker's Twine # 124262.

Lovely Floral Dynamic Textured Embossing Folder

20180502_181700

Sometimes you want to create something soft and special. I really like the look of this simple sponging technique!

20180502_181627

I used the DEBOSSED side of the Lovely Floral Dynamic Embossing Folder that is part of the May 2018 Early Release Promo. I prefer Sponge Daubers #133773, but you can also use Stampin' Sponges #141337. Pounce the dauber on a ink pad to collect ink. Then gently rub onto the image. It's very easy because it is "inexact." Rubbing lightly is best - you can always add more color if desired.

20180502_181644

The sentiment is stamped in Soft Suede ink instead of a bold black ink. Try this simple coloring trick!
