Tin Tile and Shimmer Paint

October Fast and Fabulous Cards Class

Lots of fun cards at the October monthly Fast and Fabulous Cards Class.  We used two new products found in the 2018 Holiday Catalog, the Tin Tile Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and the Bright Copper Shimmer Paint.  Crafty, creative FUN!

Tin tile with copper

I used a 5″ X 3 3/4″ piece of Crumb Cake Cardstock and ran it through the Big Shot using the Tin Tile Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  It was beautiful just like that, but I really wanted to use the Bright Copper Shimmer Paint to make the pattern pop.  I mixed a few drops of Soft Suede reinker and a couple of drops of the Bright Copper Shimmer Paint, then used a Sponge Dauber to sponge it randomly over the Crumb Cake.  Love the shine and shimmer it created!

I mounted it on a 5 1/4″ x  4″ piece of Crushed Curry Cardstock, which was mounted on a Very Vanilla Thick Cardstock base.  The sentiment is mounted on a piece of the Tea Room Specialty Designer Series Paper.

We used Lovely As A Tree, one of Stampin’ Up’s oldest stamps sets, to create another fall card, stamped with the Tuxedo Black Memento Ink Pad.

lovely as a tree colored

Again, I used the Sponge Daubers in Grapefruit Grove, Cajun Craze and Daffodil Delight for the fall colors on the trees, then sponged Mossy Meadow and Crumb Cake for the grass.  It’s mounted on Cajun Craze Cardstock.  The Rooted in Nature Designer Series Paper at the bottom is mounted on Mossy Meadow Cardstock and the Petal Palette Sentiment is stamped in Mossy Meadow.

For the third card, I went with something totally different and totally vintage.

Very vintage blue

For many years, I’ve loved blue and white china and even have a blue and white plate inherited from my maternal grandmother, which I still treasure.  So when I first saw this lovely Very Vintage Hostess Stamp Set in the 2018-2019 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog, I knew I had to stamp it in blue.  The new InColor Blueberry Bushel is the perfect blue!  I stamped off the lace images, but stamped the flowers and sentiment full strength, then mounted it on a piece of scalloped oval Blueberry Bushel.

This Very Vintage Stamp Set is available to order with any $150 order, OR if you host a party for me and have $150 in sales.  Contact me to talk and get your party on the books!

Painted Harvest Card Ideas

Fall into Autumn with the Painted Harvest Bundle

The Painted Harvest Bundle is so much FUN to create lovely autumn projects!

Here are a couple of the cards I’ve created using this set:

Painted harvest 1 with logopainted harvest 3 with logo

There a SO many different color combinations you can use for these flowers to create so many different looks!  I like Crushed Curry as a base, with Cajun Craze or Tangerine Tango as the top.  Early Espresso is my preferred color for the center, stamped 2 or 3 times to get the desired effect.

The top card is stamped on the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper, and the leaves are stamped in Garden Green.  The sentiment is stamped in Early Espresso, then I used the Pretty Little Labels Punch and mounted it with dimensionals.  (Or “puffy dots”!)  A strip of Burlap Ribbon was just the right finishing touch!

The bottom card is stamped onto Very Vanilla mounted on Daffodil Delight Cardstock.  The leaves were stamped in Garden Green on Old Olive Cardstock, then punched with the Leaf Punch.  There are 2 small pieced of the Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper bannered at the top corner.  The sentiment was stamped in Early Espresso, then punched with the Everyday Labels Punch and mounted with dimensionals.

 

This fantastic Painted Harvest Bundle includes the Painted Harvest Stamp Set and the Leaf Punch.  The Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper is included in the DESIGNER SERIES PAPER BUY 3, GET 1 FREE SALE, October 1st-31st.  Go here to get this Bundle and get 10% off, and go here to find out about the Designer Series Paper Sale!

Tips and Tricks for using this lovely Painted Harvest Stamp Set:

  • Stamp all layers of the image
  • Make sure your ink pads are well inked
  • Use nice, even pressure when stamping
  • Use the Stampin’ Pierce Mat
  • Keep in mind that lighter colors won’t show up as deeply as darker colors
  • Play around with saturation levels (e.g., stamping full strength vs. stamping off) to get your desired look
  • The stamp is not supposed to match the flowers on the Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper
