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.

Shimmery White Cardstock, stamped with StazOn Ink then colored with our Watercolor Pencils.  I also used the Garden Trellis Embossing Folder and the Everyday Label Punch for the sentiment from the Humming Along Stamp Set.

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!

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!
