Awow Blog Hop – Sketch 101

Hi friends, Welcome to our Around the World on Wednesday Blog Hop where on the second Wednesday of each month we share creative inspiration using Stampin’ Up! products. This month we have a sketch challenge – my favourite type to work with.

Awow Blog Hop, Around the World on Wednesday Blog Hop Header

Sketches offer a great starting point for a project. Today you will see the different looks you can get with just 1 sketch and I hope you give it a try.

Each week on my Facebook Page, I feature a product and this week it’s the Home & Garden Bundle. So I’ve incorporated it with this layout to create a card for Dad. Great for a birthday card or for Father’s Day this has been combined with the He’s the Man suite from our new Catalogue.

The sentiment was inked in Versamark and Early Espresso and heat embossed with Clear Embossing Powder. I felt that it needed to be a little bit darker so I coloured over the embossing with SU100 Stampin’ Blend which made it stand out. The oval was coloured with some Natural Tones Stampin’ Blends and I added the texture stamp from the Nature’s Harvest stamp set which gave it an old leather look which I loved.

I hope you have enjoyed my take on this sketch and stop by my Facebook Page to see me make it on my Creative Escape FB Live tonight.

Fun Ways with Designer Series Paper – Part 6

Today’s fun tip for using our Designer Series Paper is all about texture. I am a huge fan of embossing folders as they add instant texture to projects with very little effort. With a single run through the Stampin’ Cut and Emboss machine Stampin’ Up!’s various embossing folders will create a raised design on your cardstock or DSP.

Emboss it

This sympathy card uses the Peony Garden suite. I embossed a piece of the marbled paper with the Parisian Flourish embossing folder. Add a stamped and die cut image, simple sentiment, ribbon and you’ve got a quick card which has texture to it as well.

The By the Dock stamp set is a really fun set and makes great men’s cards. I created a ripple look for the water theme by running some In Good Taste DSP through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine with the Old World Paper Embossing Folder. The kayak was coloured in Stampin’ Blends with the jetty stamped in Early Espresso on Soft Suede cardstock.

Don’t you just love the little fish in the Artistry Blooms DSP water? I coloured the fish with Stampin’ Blends directly over the Designer Series Paper and the colour showed up well over it.
