Fun Ways with Designer Series Paper – Part 3

I hope you are enjoying this series in which I am showing you several Fun Ways with Designer Series Paper. We’ve covered Common Cuts and Fussy cutting. Today, we are sponging it. This is another great technique to add colour and alter your DSP.

Sponge it

Sponging can be done using a sponge dauber or sponges. Each of these tools will give you a different effect when you are sponging over larger areas. Personally, for smaller areas and edging, I prefer the sponge daubers. These nifty little tools are like a thimble with a sponge on one side and open on the other so you can pop it on your finger. This makes it handy to work around your projects.

This card uses sponging in it’s classic form for creating a distressed finish giving this card a vintage feel. The Toile Tidings DSP images just lend itself to creating vintage cards. They are so pretty that I didn’t want to cover any of it so I selected a lovely sentiment and kept the rest of the card clean so the beauty of this paper could be seen. Until the end of October you can get this paper at 15% off.

This is a quick and easy card to make using the Feels Like Frost Specialy DSP which has photographic images on one side and silver foil on the other. I used the silver foil side and sponged over with Coastal Cabana. The silver resisted the ink while only the white leaves picked up the colour. This is a really fun way to alter the colour of paper.

Although this DSP is perfect for Christmas cards, you can see that it can be used for other occasions with this beautiful silver foil.

Kre8tors Blog Hop October 2019 – Autumn

Hello stampers, 

So happy that you are able to stop by my blog today. You may be stopping by from Su’s blog and would have seen her amazing work. Be sure to stop by all our participants who are listed at the bottom of this post to see their lovely work.

I’m a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator in the coastal town of Blind Bight in the outer suburbs of Victoria in Australia. We are a small community with a beach within walking distance and some lovely walking tracks surrounded by bush.

Kre8tors Blog Hop August Color Challenge

Our theme for this hop is Fall or as it’s known in Australia – Autumn. Although we are in Spring and allergy season here at the moment, I love the colours of the Autumn leaves and nature paints a lovely picture during this season. 

Peaceful Place, Autumn/Fall handmade card with autumn leaves

I really wanted to capture the colours of the Autumn leaves and chose the beautiful Peaceful Place stamp set to work with. I stamped the image in Tuxedo Black using the Stamparatus. Then I inked up the pine trees in Garden Green and restamped. I reinked sections of the pine tree in Shaded Spruce and stamped again. The Stamparatus makes this technique so easy to do. 

Tip: First stamp and colour the image and then die cut the oval 

I then added colour to the image using sponge daubers and several inks. This is a fun technique and simple to achieve. The die cut image has been mounted with Dimensionals onto a piece of Pressed Petals Designer Series Paper. I love the wood texture and it reflects the elements of nature that are depicted in this image. 

Colouring an image with sponge daubers and Stampin' Up! inks

The autumn leaves from the Rooted in Nature stamp set have been stamped in Blackberry Bliss. These were then die cut and sponged with Pumpkin Pie, Granny Apple Green and Mango Melody. 

The sentiment is stamped onto a piece of See a Silhouette Designer Series Paper and die cut with a label from Lakeside Dies. I first die cut the sentiment and then reinserted it into the die cutting machine to create a shorter label to fit my sentiment.
