Humming Along and Home to Roost

Humming Along and Home to Roost

Even in the Deep South, it can get downright cold in January.  Since I love Stampin’ Up! Stampin’ Blends and Watercolor Pencils, what better way to while away the long winter days than color!  The Humming Along Cling Stamp Set and the Sale-A-Bration Home to Roost Cling Stamp Set were the perfect stamps for my projects.

HUMMING ALONG CLING STAMP SET

This was one of the stamp sets that was demonstrated at OnStage Orlando in November, and I loved it at first sight.  There’s a beautiful flower, a hummingbird (we love hummers!) and sentiments to complete the project.

I stamped the hummingbird in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, the colored it with Balmy Blue and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends.  I used a strip of the Gingham Gala Designer Series Paper and the sentiment is from the Humming Along Cling Stamp Set, stamped in Memento.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Shimmery White Cardstock for this one, since it adds just a touch of shimmer.  The hummingbird is stamped in StazOn Ink, then colored with Watercolor Pencils and an Aqua Painter.  The Red Rhinestones were the extra touch of bling I wanted.  The Stitched Labels Framelits Die gave a touch of texture to the Cherry Cobbler Cardstock base.

But there’s also a gorgeous flower with this stamp set!  This is one of Stampin’ Up’s new Cling Stamp Sets, found in the Occasions Catalog.  Three great sentiments, too.

 

For these two flower images, I used Memento Ink, then the Watercolor Pencils, and the Blender Pen.   The blue flower is Pacific Point and the pink flower is Flirty Flamingo.  I used the light Pineapple Punch Stampin’ Blend to add contrast around the flowers and make them pop.

The Gingham Gala Designer Series Paper is the perfect background!

I stamped the flower in Versamark on the Pear Pizzaz Cardstock.

Home to Roost Cling Stamp Set

One of my favorite Sale-A-Bration Items is the Home to Roost Cling Stamp Set.  This stamp set is one of the FREE Items you can choose with any $50 Product Order.  Look at the great sentiments!

I used Stampin’ Up! Watercolor Paper for these,  stamped the images in StazOn Ink, then used the Watercolor Pencils and the AquaPainter to color them.

For these I used Whisper White or Very Vanilla Thick Cardstock, stamped the image in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, the colored with Stampin’ Blends.    I used the Stitched Labels Framelits, and the Pinewood Planks and Tin Tile Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folders.

One of the items in the new Occasions Catalog that I used is the new Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies.  One of my VERY favorites that is already getting a lot of use!

Lots and lots of Framelits in this incredibly versatile set!

Beautiful Blizzard

Beautiful Blizzard

At the October Christmas Cards Class, we had some fun with Shimmer Paint and the Beautiful Blizzard Stamp Set.  This Stamp Set makes gorgeous Christmas cards quickly and easily!

Beautiful Blizzard Stamps Set

I decided to use a combination of Pool Party and Night of Navy.

First we stamped the “sploosh” from the Beautiful Blizzard Stamps Set onto Thick Whisper White Cardstock.  In a Stampin’ Spritzer filled about 2/3 with rubbing alcohol, I added a couple of drops of Frost White Shimmer Paint.  We lightly spritzed the “sploosh” images with that mixture, then set it aside a couple of minutes to dry.  After it was dry, we stamped the snowflakes in Night of Navy.  I also stamped the sentiment in Night of Navy.  For another “sparkly” layer, I added a couple of rhinestones. Lots of snowy beauty!

I also used the Pool Party and Night of Navy color combo with the second card.  The snowflakes are from the Colorful Seasons Thinlits Dies set.  I used Champagne Foil paper.  Sentiment is stamped in Night of Navy and punched out using the Everyday Label Punch.

Beautiful Blizzard is a perfect holiday stamps set, and it has a coordinating die to create even more projects!  Get the Bundle on my online store and save 10%!

 

 

Cableknit Christmas

For this card, I decided to go with the classical elegance of red, black and white.  I used Real Red Cardstock for the background, then the Cable Knit Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder for the top layer.  The sentiment from Timeless Tidings is stamped in Real Red and mounted on Real Red Cardstock cut using the Starburst Punch.  Red Rhinestones and Basic Black 3/8″ Shimmer Ribbon were the perfect finishing touches.

Festive Farmhouse DSP Christmas

The Festive Farmhouse Designer Series Paper is just perfect for fall and Christmas projects, and I love this plaid!  I used the Pinewood Planks Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder on the Cherry Cobbler and Crumb Cake Cardstock to add some depth and dimension.  The sentiment from Beautiful Blizzard is stamped in Cherry Cobbler.
