Beautiful Stained Glass

final

I am so happy that we have the new Stampin’ Blends markers!  They are alcohol based markers that make shading a snap!  The collection can be sold as a whole set, in pairs, or per marker.  There are also color lifters, Ivory, and Bronze colors to make your skin tones easy too!

I wanted to focus on a fun technique this month at club, and used them with the Stained Glass technique.  It’s super simple and yields gorgeous results!

  1. USE the Embossing Buddy!! I usually forget using it, but for this technique, it’s a must.  Rub some on the surface of the vellum.
  2. Next, use Versa Mark and stamp your image on the vellum.
  3. Use a dark or metallic embossing powder to sprinkle on top.
  4. Heat the powder using the heat tool.
  5. Choose your markers that you want to use and color on the BACK side of the vellum.
  6. Adhere your vellum to a light colored card stock.  I used Glue Dots under the wings to keep them hidden.

I also used Washi Tape to keep the sides down and a Glue Dot on top covered by the Fresh Fig bow. I am so ready for warmer weather and pretty flowers! So, you may see a lot of bright colors and flowers coming!  After this cold/flu/sick season….I am done!

Masculine Petal Passion

HECN5226 (2)

I love it when I am working on one project, then cut out a piece from the Big Shot, and then a new idea hits me!  I saw the negative of the Petal Branch from the Petals & More Thinlit dies and immediately saw this card!

It was such a simple card to put together too!  I just popped a piece of Copper Foil in the background and matted it with Early Espresso.  A little Linen Thread and a sentiment, finished!  And it’s masculine!  Those are usually my hardest to design!

The pictures do not do the copper justice at all!  It really pops in person!

My son has grown up around me making crafts with Stampin Up! products.  He wanted to make his friend a birthday card, so off to my room we go.  He usually goes through my pieces that don’t make it onto a project and scrap paper.  But I am so proud of what he made!!

He tells me he wants to be a Stampin’ Up! demo when he gets older!  Ha!  I will see what he says when he’s 18!  Until then, I will eat up these moments!

Don’t forget to watch my video of What Comes in the Creative Class to GO! Order by February 22nd and link back to the February Class to Go for details!

 

Love My Lavender!

When I first saw the Sale-a-Bration catalog, I knew I had to earn the Lots of Lavender set right away!  I love the soft blossoms and that it’s photopolymer!  It makes 2 step stamping so much easier! I made this card for my Sweet & Simple class and used it for my Quarterly gathering!

I used Perfect Plum for my card base, Petal Passion DSP, and Silver Foil for the side accents.  I already have gone through one of the Silver Baker’s Twin!  So fun!

There is Wink of Stella Clear on the blossoms too!  When I first saw the Classic Label punch, it didn’t wow me.  But I use it all the time!  I love it now!

Don’t forget about the FREE Creative Class to Go this month!  Just purchase the Waterfront set, Wood Designs DSP pack, and Wink of Stella Clear! (I want you to see how addictive it is!!)

Panda in Love

I just love this Party Panda set!  And I thought with Valentine’s Day coming up next week that I could use this set!  I used the “love you” heart from the Lots of Love stamp set and the Sweet & Sassy Hearts framelits.

I added some Red Glimmer paper along with the Petal Passion DSP strip.  I added this card to my Sweet & Simple class next week!

Heartfelt Thanks

MUIW9720 (1)

I love a FREE stamp set, don’t you?  The Heartfelt Blooms is one of the many choices that are in this year’s Sale-a-bration catalog!  I just love the details in the image!  I tried it with black, but I really enjoyed how the Smoky Slate ink turned out!  This is for my Sweet & Simple class tonight!

Did you notice the cute dry embossed image?  It’s part of the Petal Passion suite on page 22-23 of the Occasions catalog!  It is a smaller embossing folder and it has 2 in the Petal Pair package!

I wanted to add ribbon, but really didn’t want to distract away from the main statement image.  I just used the Layering Ovals to cut out the Thank You that also is part of the Heartfelt Blooms set!

This is going to be a card for this month’s club too!  I just love how he’s throwing confetti in the air!  I just used the marker to stamp technique to have more than one color on the stamp!  And the new Scattered Sequins Dynamic Texture Impressions Embossing folder is just too cute!!

GMEX9633

I did use Wink of Stella on the confetti and his party hat!  He just makes me smile!
