Flowers for Every Season Friendship Card

Hi friend,

Hope you are enjoying your long weekend. I’ve been having fun creating with the beautiful Flowers for Every Season Memories & More card pack. I’ve created this Friendship card using the sentiment from the Well Said stamp set  

Greeting Card with

Co-ordinating with this is the Flowers for Every Season Memories & More Cards & Envelopes which are in all our new In-Colours. I’ve used the Magenta Madness card for my base today. With it’s pretty envelopes, it’s a lovely addition to my craft stash. 

Papercrafting Ready Made cards and envelopes

The circle has been stamped with the reversible line image in the stamp set, using our stamp positioning tool – the Stamparatus, which makes it so easy to create repeat patterned images like this. Fussy cut images from the Memories & More pack and the Designer Series Paper create this lovely bouquet of flowers.

Botanical Prints Product Medley

I started making cards with this kit and I just couldn’t stop. I had so many ideas and I love the paper. There are so many ways to use it. Some sheets have images of fruit and others flowers. One side is coloured while the other is Black and White and this makes it extra good for combining with many projects. 

My card today shows how you can use the various patterns of the Designer Series Paper included in this pack. The busy pattern in the background is offset by the black and white stripe pattern in the centre.

* 48 sheets of 6″ x 6″ (15.2 x 15.2 cm) Designer Series Paper: 8 each of 6 double-sided designs

A Quick Way to Add Colour to Stamped Images

I’m loving the Tropical Oasis suite and have been creating cards using different techniques. This card uses a simple layout with a few colours to create a friendship card.

This card was really quick to make using a very easy colouring technique to add some colour to the palm tree. 

How to easily add colour to stamps, Tropical Oasis stamp set

I used Stampin’ Write Markers to colour directly onto the rubber of the stamp. I love these markers as they come in every colour in our ink pad range, there is a pen and brush side so you have more control over your colouring and being water based the stamps clean up easily after use. 

Once the image is coloured with the Markers, just ‘huff’ on the stamp and the breath will activate the ink. Stamp as normal on your cardstock. This is a fun and quick way to add colour to your images. I even added shading to my leaves with 2 colours. The sentiment has been stamped on a bit of scrap Tropical Oasis Memories & More Card I had leftover.

Friendship Card #gdp209 Colour Challenge

Hi friends,

I’ve got a sweet card for you today inspired by the fun colours set out in the Global Design Project challenge this week. These are such bright and cheerful colours and I thought it would be fun to create a friendship card. 

#gdp209 Color Challenge, Colour Challenge

I chose the Little Elephant stamp set and although tempted to use the cute little elephants, I decided to use some other fun images which are included in this set. 

Friendship card using Little Elephant stamp set by Stampin' Up!

The border of hearts was made using a small stamp in the set. Then I used the Stamparatus to create the flower border. These were coloured with Blueberry Bushel and Call me Clover Stampin’ Write Markers with the ‘direct to stamp’ colouring technique. To achieve this look, I coloured the stamp with the markers then ‘huffed’ (breathed) on it to activate the moisture and stamped. I did this each time I coloured the stamp. The advantage of the Stamparatus is the ability to align a border as I have done and also to re-stamp images which may not stamp first time.

The sentiment was heat embossed in White on Call me Clover cardstock.

Krea8tors August 2019 Blog Hop – Color Challenge Farms

Kre8tors Blog Hop August Color Challenge

Hi Friends,

So glad that you have stopped by today. I’m excited to be participating for the first time in the Kre8tors Blog Hop.  This month’s theme is The Hood River Fruit Loop. It’s a collection of farms in the Hood River Valley in Oregon, USA that offer fresh fruits, vegetables, flowers, and other items straight off the farm. 

We had to select 3 of the 5 featured colours beneath this beautiful photo. I have chosen Early Espresso, Petal Pink and Cherry Cobbler. Kre8tors Blog Hop August 2019 Color Challenge Stampin' Up!

The Whisper White layer has been stamped in Early Espresso with the script from the Very Versailles stamp set. Then I added the flourish from Leave a Little Sparkle in Cherry Cobbler. 3 leaves were stamped on top with Early Espresso. To complete the background, I used the Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Write marker and created the splatter effect by flicking the brush side against the cap of the marker. This creates the subtle splatter look.

Next I drew 2 lines in pencil to indicate where I was going to cut through. The vertical line was 2.5 cm from left edge at top and 4.5 cm from left edge at bottom. The horizontal line was 11.5 cm from top on left side and 7.5 cm from top on right side.

I trimmed about 1/2 cm on either side of the pencil mark which forms the gap so the Early Espresso can show through. 

I used the new Daisy Lane bundle and stamped and punched 3 daises, layering and curling the petals with a bone folder to create the flower.
