Dressed to Impress Bundle by Stampin' Up!

20200105_161821

What is "PAPER PIECING?" It's similar to quilting with paper. Designer papers are cut and put together to create a design. These polka dot high heels are a perfect example!! Each shoe was stamp on polka dot paper and again on yellow paper from the Best Dress 6 X 6" Designer Series Paper #151319. Then they were die cut and fussy cut to create the two colors on a single shoe to look like fun contrasting shoe lining!!

I needed a peaceful card and this Beautiful Moments Stamp Set #151677 was the perfect solution!

 

20200227_191722

This image is so thoughtful and calm. It looks breezy so I chose the Parisian Flourish 3D Embossing Folder #151474 for the layer because of the swirls. The designer paper is Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper #149100 with soft flowers.

 

20200227_191706

Overalls Pattern from All Dressed Up Dies

20200126_162542

How cute are these overalls created with the All Dressed Up Dies #151665 that made the "purses" in my last post?!?!?!? I cased this adorable idea from Australian Demonstrator Michele Jutrisa. Michele has a 26 minute video you can view. I just had to make the coveralls with the From My Heart Specialty Designer Series Paper #151189!

20200126_162347

Cut off the bottom and side panel of the die cut purse, then cut a "V" to create two legs using the simple measurements above. 

20200123_185522

Here is the backside so you can see how I crossed the two die cut straps.

Here is a clever idea using Pressed Petal Specialty Washi Tape #149585! I was inspired by Demonstrator, Su Mohr.

Lightly mark the shape of the plain heart punch from Heart Punch Pack of 2 layering hearts #151292. Starting from the TOP of the heart shape, fill in the image by overlapping the self-adhesive Washi Petals. Punch out the completed shape and layer onto a scalloped heart punched from Rose Glimmer Paper #146960

My Meadow by Stampin' Up!

20191220_084244

TIPS for an exquisite sunrise or sunset on hand stamped cards:

   *Use Shimmery White Card Stock #101910 and Sponge Daubers #133773

   *Add saturated color to the card stock by collecting water based ink from an ink pad and SCRUBBING the ink all the way across the card with a dauber.

   *For blended colors for the sky, OVERLAP the colors.

   *Stamp silhouetted images on the finished base with BLACK ink

   *Color in any open areas that should be silhouetted using a water based BLACK marker

   *Layer onto a BLACK card base to pop colors

   *PRACTICE & EXPERIMENT

20191215_111824

Use plenty of ink, loading your dauber multiple times!

20191215_142006

Any highlights, like on this gazebo roof, can be filled in with a black marker to create a true silhouette.

20191220_084229

The NEW My Meadow Stamp Set #151650 is perfect for this technique!
