Four Feathers and Eye-Catching Ikat

Four Feathers and Ikat

I just love the addition of the Four Feathers stamp set and coordinating Feathers Framelits to the 2014 Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog.  I have lots of Native American art in my home, and so I looked at what I could pair this great stamp set with to achieve that effect.  Lo and behold – I found a set in my collection that I haven’t used a lot called Eye-Catching Ikat.  Since this stamp set is in photopolymer, I was able to line up my stamping to create my own designer paper by stamping in Crushed Curry, Tempting Turquoise and Cajun Craze.

    • I stamped two of the feathers on Very Vanilla cardstock.  For the third feather, I stamped on Tempting Turquoise cardstock with VersaMark and sprinkled on Silver Embossing Powder, then heat set with the Heat Tool.
    • Wasn’t sure where to add my sentiment, so I decided to cut out an extra feather and stamp a simple “hello” from A Dozen Thoughts stamp set on it.
    • I added additional “sterling silver” accents using a Silver Button and a strip of Silver Foil run through the Big Shot using the zig-zag framelit in the Finishing Touches Edgelits.

I tried adding some Candy Dots with Brad Bases, but I think it’s too much – thought I’d show you anyway.  What do you think?  Leave me a comment!

Bundle and Save 15% on Fun Fall and Fall Fest

Fall Fest and For All Things

Fall Fest stamp set and coordinating Fun Fall Framelits have been my favorite new Stampin’ Up! products this Fall!  I love all of the interchangeable components in the stamp set, making it great for Halloween and Fall all in one set.  And when you purchase both at the same time, you’ll save 15% on the set!

Remember when we were “all over” the new In Colors when they were introduced in June?  And then I sort of forgot about them for a bit.  Well, now is the time to pull them out and use them like crazy!  Look at this beautiful Fall pallette – Blackberry Bliss, Tangelo Twist, Mossy Meadow and Hello Honey.

 

2014-16 In Color Stamp Pads

  • I really wanted to highlight these beautiful colors that look so great together, so I used some color blocking as my backdrop.
  • A Whisper White Cardstock oval was cut using the Oval Framelits and Big Shot.  All of the images were stamped on Whisper White Cardstock then cut out using the Fun Fall Framelits.
  • I tied a piece of Linen Thread around the larger pumpkin and slipped on an Autumn Wooden Element.  You’ll find these sweet little accents being used over and over again on your Fall projects.
  • Dimensionals are important with any card, but this one in particular to achieve the realistic overlay of the various pieces.  The smaller pumpkin and leaf are brought to the foreground to give the scene some nice depth.
  • “Grateful for You” is stamped in Mossy Meadow Ink on the Hello Honey Cardstock.  You’ll find this sentiment in another terrific Stampin’ Up! Fall stamp set called For All ThingsAnd you’ll find another card using different elements of the For All Things stamp set HERE.

Seasonally Scattered Thanks

Seasonally Scattered Thanks

Seasonally Scattered is a fun stamp set this year that you can use to create thank you cards, Christmas cards and Valentine’s Day cards.  You’ll find it in Stampin’ Up!’s Holiday Catalog on pg. 43.  With just 3 simple stamps, this set is a must have for showcasing techniques and for doing quick & easy cards.

  • I began thinking about this card with Fall colors in mind, but I wanted something a little lighter so that I could emboss over the top of the colors.  I chose the Subtles family colors – Wild Wasabi, Wisteria Wonder, So Saffron and Calypso Coral – with some added Early Espresso.
  • It didn’t photograph all that well, but I used Shimmery White Cardstock as my base to stamp on and literally dragged my stamp pad over the cardstock in an arching motion from left to right.  I started at the bottom with Wild Wasabi and moved up, letting the colors blend and overlap just a bit.  The shimmer from the cardstock shows through the colors and gives a nice added look.
  • Next I stamped “thanks” from Seasonally Scattered using my VersaMark pad, then sprinkled on Early Espresso Embossing Powder and heated it up with my Heat Tool.
  • Accents on the bottom are Venetian Crochet Trim and Calypso Coral Seam Binding Ribbon.  The button is an Early Espresso one from the Neutrals Designer Buttons.  I pulled apart some of the Very Vanilla fibers from the Natural/Old Olive Two-Tone Trim and made an “X” through the center, adhering it to the card with a Glue Dot.

Stampin’ Up! Making Spirits Bright

Making Spirits Bright

I’m not normally a traditional Christmas colors kinda gal.   But I adore the new Stampin’ Up! paper stack called Trim the Tree.  I’ve centered my card today around two of the 24 different prints you’ll receive in this versatile pack of 4-1/2″x6-1/2″ assortment.

  • The base of my card is Whisper White Cardstock, but I’ve cut a piece of Garden Green Cardstock at 4″x5-1/4″ to act as the base to hold the designer paper and create the small strip down the center.
  • The main image is stamped on Whisper White Cardstock using Memento Ink.  I colored the holly and candy cane in with coordinating markers from the Regals Marker Collection.  The bow on the glass is created using Cherry Cobbler Dazzling Details, and the drink looks liquidy using Crystal Effects.  I’ve cut the image out using the Circles Collection Framelits and Big Shot.
  • The “Merry Christmas” banner is stamped in Cherry Cobbler Ink.  Notice the two buttons on the banner – I couldn’t decide between Garden Green and Cherry Cobbler, so I used them both, stacking the smaller on top of the larger using a Glue Dot.  But before I adhered them, I tied a bow using Linen ThreadAnd by the way, the Regals Button Collection is on sale this week only as one of the Weekly Deals – get yours for just $5.96 this week!

For All Things

For All Things

Fall card making and stamping has never been more fun than with the For All Things stamp set and coordinating Color Me Autumn Designer Series Paper by Stampin’ Up!  These are “my colors” – Cajun Craze and Mossy Meadow team up with Soft Suede and Very Vanilla.  And the designer paper is so versatile – nice prints to work with on one side and beautiful neutrals on the other.  Take a look at all of the prints:

Color Me Autumn

  • This card came about by wanting to show off this pretty paper, so I kept things simple.  I stamped the watercolor image on Very Vanilla Cardstock using a Sahara Sand stamp pad, then used Mossy Meadow and Cajun Craze Stampin’ Write Markers to color direct to the rubber stamp to create the sentiment.
  • I punched the sentiment out using the 2-1/2″ Circle Punch and adhered it to the front using Dimensionals.
  • The fiber decoration to the left comes from several different Stampin’ Up! accessories.  First I cut the selvage of both sides of the 1-1/4″ Burlap Ribbon to make it narrower and also to let the edges fray naturally.  I used the new Stampin’ Up! adhesive Fast Fuse to adhere the burlap to the cardstock.  Think Sticky Strip only in a dispenser!  Next came the gorgeous Mossy Meadow 3/8″ Stitched Satin Ribbon then some Venetian Crochet Trim.  Finally I unwound some of the Natural Old Olive Two-Tone Trim and used just some of the vanilla trim through the center of the Gold Basic Metal Button.  Button is attached to the card with Glue Dots.
