Beach Happy by Stampin' Up!

20190308_094047

I'm using Beach Happy Stamp Set #148585 today because March is GREAT beach weather here in Florida! The sun is warm, but the HEAT of summer has not arrived yet. (The sand gets extremely HOT in the summer - it hurts your bare feet.) I used my handy Stamparatus (positioning tool) #146276 with the 2-step "chair/umbrella" image to get perfect alignment!

20190308_094108

Both sentiments are layered with Crushed Curry color card stock to represent the "SUN!" The base card is Calypso Coral, a fun beachy color!

Home to Roost

20190108_165738

These Notecards #131527 are FUN to create!! Simply scribble horizontally using the side of the broad tip of Stampin' Write Markers on GLOSSY cardstock!! BLEND sky colors by overlapping. Do not blend the green "earth." TIP: turn your glossy cardstock upside down to cut which will reduce oily fingerprints that interfere with coloring.

20190108_165657

The marker dries quickly. Stamp your silhouette image in STAZ-ON Jet Black Ink #101406. Let dry. 

20190108_165529

Use a Basic Black Stampin' Write Marker to color in the Rooster which is an open image. This Home to Roost stamp set is a FREE Sale-A-Bration Promo item with a $50 purchase (usa.) PLAY with different colors!! My next post will have a similar idea for you to try!

Country Home Stamp Set

20180927_085222

Country Home Stamp Set #147678 has been a joy for me! It's seasonal and homey! I LOVE the NEW Granny Apple Green Blends Duo #147274  on the olde metal pitcher!! It's a FUN FLASH of color!

20180927_085202

TIP: see the black line behind the pitcher? It "grounds" the image. Without the line, the image "FLOATS!" Amazing what a simple line can do for your image!!

Enjoy Life Stamp Set

20180918_110621

I enjoy creating Sunset/Sunrise cards! "Enjoy Life" Stamp Set #148190 is a lovely silhouette stamp set to use with this FUN technique.

20180918_100214

Here is my process which allows me to reproduce the same card multiple times:

    *Punch or die cut a generous shape in the center of a quarter sheet of scrap cardstock.

    *Lay this template on your cardstock and hold in place. (I just use my fingers.)

    *Using a Sponge Dauber #133773 pounce on an ink pad to collect color, then scrub ink into the opening of the template, using a horizontal motion going beyond the edges of the template.  Blend one color into the next if desired.

    *Mark your colors for use at a later time and keep in the template in your stamp case.

    *Stamp a silhouette in black ink within the window before removing the template.

20180918_110644

This is a lovely, thoughtful sentiment! Try sponging a Sunrise/Sunset!
