Beetles & Bugs Card for WWYS #117


Hello and welcome to the WWYS Challenge. This week’s stamp set is from the Occasions Catalogue – Beetles & Bugs; sadly another set that will be retiring on 31 May. I you love it, grab it now! Now I know some people don’t like bugs at all, but how adorable are these?! And you can use them for all sorts of fun backgrounds as well as focal points like I’ve done with my card today. I have always loved ladybirds. Do you remember the rhyme “Ladybird, ladybird, fly away home …” from your childhood? For me it brings back sweet memories of warm days and carefree playtime surrounded by nature’s gifts.


I started with a card base of Crumb Cake, a layer of Basic Black, and my top layer of Shimmery White, onto which I watercoloured some bright summery colours (Delightful Dijon, Crushed Curry and Watermelon Wonder). A white heat embossed leaf from the Vintage Leaves Stamp Set provides a background for my lovely ladybirds which I stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black and watercoloured with Real Red ink. And yes, I fussy cut them! I also added Fine-tip Glue Pen to their bodies to make them look round and shiny like in real-life. The sentiment (from Endless Thanks Stamp Set) was also stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black directly onto the card front. Gold and clear sequins from the Metallics Sequin Assortment and a little of the Copper Trim (a new product from the soon-to-be-released Annual Catalogue) finishes it off beautifully.


TIP: Add dimension and shine with the fine-tip glue pen as I’ve done here with the ladybirds. Be careful though – it takes around 24 hours to dry completely!

Vertical Greetings Card for WWYS #116


Hello and welcome to this week’s WWYS Challenge. This week we’re playing with the Vertical Greetings Stamp Set. I loved this set the first time I saw it. It’s simple and sweet, and the vertical greetings give your projects a point of difference. I wanted to incorporate the balled topiary image on a vellum panel for a soft look, so that was my jumping off point for my card this week. And I just happened to have Gorgeous Grunge on my craft desk, so from there the card just “grew”!


I used the thumping technique on the pot and leaves using a few different colours for each (Cajun Craze, Delightful Dijon and Basic Grey for the pot; Delightful Dijon, Garden Green and Cucumber Crush for the leaves; Soft Suede for the trunk). I white heat embossed the sentiment about a third of the way in from the edge after stamping the background in tone-on-tone style using Tip Top Taupe ink and cardstock. Then I simply attached the vellum panel with washi tape and added a strip of burlap ribbon on one side. I added some Cajun Craze hearts and a little bit of Clear Wink of Stella on the foliage and card done!


Sadly, the Gorgeous Grunge Stamp Set is now sold out, but the 2015-2017 In Color Stampin’ Write Markers are still available while stocks last, and the Playful Palette Washi Tape pack is available at 50% off on the Retiring List and only available until 31 May or while stocks last. Click here to shop all the retiring products.

TIP: Get inventive with vellum! Vellum can be tricky to adhere without the adhesive showing through on the front. Using washi tape to adhere it gets around that.

Beautiful You Silhouette Card for WWYS #115


Hello and welcome to this week’s WWYS Challenge. Our chosen Stamp Set this week is Beautiful You. The amazing images in this set are quite retro / vintage, so I wanted to create something that would emphasise that quality. My inspiration came from the pictures below, which I found on the web when I was looking for ideas for this card the other day. Silhouettes were used to create portraits of actual people in the 18th and 19th centuries (amazing!), and were also used in jewellery making and pottery; do you remember the cameo brooches and the Wedgwood Jasper Ware pottery?).

Well, I ran with this idea and, using the “elegant” lady image from the set, created a cameo focal point for my card.


I’ve used the Layering Ovals dies to create the cameo look. I added a small floral image from That’s the Tag Stamp Set and copper embossed the splatter image from Gorgeous Grunge to ground the focal image. I also added a little Copper Metallic Thread behind and a few white hearts from the Metallics Sequin Assortment. It didn’t need much more so I heat embossed a simple one word sentiment from Beautiful You in white on black cardstock and this card is done! It was very quick to make.

That’s the Tag and Gorgeous Grunge Stamp Sets as well as the Metallics Sequin Assortment are all on the retiring list, so if you just have to have them, be quick! There’s a link to the list at the bottom of this post.

TIP: Sometimes less is more. Resist the urge to keep adding elements to your card. Lay the elements out on the card before fixing anything down so you can see what it will look like. You can play around – add and take away to see the difference.

That’s the Tag Birthday Card for WWYS #114


Hello and welcome to this week’s WWYS Challenge. This week I’ve made a pretty birthday card using images from the featured set, That’s the Tag. It can be purchased as a bundle with matching thinlits dies (but only until 31 May – it’s on the retiring list). It’s a great set for making tags, labels, cards or 3D projects – very versatile I think!


I’ve used a variety of techniques here including heat embossing, dry embossing and watercolouring for the flowers. And I just love how you can colour the gorgeous lace doilies from the Occasions Catalogue however you choose; I’ve smooshed the white side (they also have a Very Vanilla side) with black ink to give a dramatic mottled effect.

TIPS: 

1. Add a strip of glimmer paper (or cardstock) to delineate one “section” from another when partial embossing.

2. Spritz your cardstock with water before embossing to stop it cracking. (I forgot to do that here!)


I’ve repeated the little flower image that I stamped as a border on the tag as well, and threaded it with some ribbon and metallic thread. Can you spy the sneak peek? The green used for the sentiment and leaves is a new In Colour – Lemon Lime Twist. I’ve always loved Pear Pizzazz but I think I have a new favourite green!


I finished the inside of the card with another smooshed lace doily.

Carousel Birthday in Gold for WWYS #112

 


Hello and welcome to this week’s WWYS Challenge. I hope you’ve all had a relaxing and happy Easter break. This week we’re playing with the gorgeous Carousel Birthday stamp set. I just adore this set and I’ve used some elements from the coordinating Cupcakes & Carousels Embellishment Kit.


My card has a shaker element which I made by cutting the middle from one of the tags in the kit. All my stamping has been gold heat embossed and I just love the effect of gold paired with the pinky-orange tones of Calypso Coral. The sequins are also from the kit.

TIPS:

1. Removing the paper covering from the top of the adhesive tape prior to adhering it to your card will make it easier to manipulate it into the shape required.

2. To prevent sequins getting stuck to the adhesive tape around the shaker element, rub over the inside of the tape with an embossing buddy.

Sadly, we’ll be saying goodbye to this suite at the end of May. If you’ve had your eye on these products, now is the time to grab them as they’re on the retiring list. The paper I’ve used on the front of my card is from the Cupcakes & Carousels Designer Series Paper Stack which is currently 30% off, and the embellishment kit is 20% off.  I think these products will sell out fast and they’re only available while stocks last.


I finished the inside of the card simply with a coordinating sentiment in gold.

Weather Together Baby Shower Card for WWYS #111


Hello and welcome to this week’s WWYS Challenge. This week we’ve been challenged to use the Weather Together stamp set. I needed a card for my niece’s baby shower, and the umbrella was perfect! Here’s my card:


As we already know that the baby is a girl, I went for shades of pink and also added green. I started by stamping some clouds on the Whisper White panel and then added some clouds die-cut from Irresistibly Floral Designer Series Paper which I had sponged in a couple of shades of pink and using the co-ordinating Umbrella Weather Framelits Dies. I then stamped the umbrella handle in Pear Pizzazz ink at the bottom of the Whisper White cardstock panel and topped it with a die-cut umbrella (from Pop of Pink Specialty Designer Series Paper) and a scalloped trim from Blushing Bride cardstock. The tiny hearts were die-cut from the Umbrella Weather  dies in Blushing Bride and Real Red, and I also used some sweetheart-shaped hearts (the fatter ones) that I had in my stash. Some were glued and others were elevated using rolled up Mini Glue Dots.

The sentiment is from the now retired Moon Baby Stamp Set from the recent Occasions Catalogue. It was white heat embossed on Pear Pizzazz cardstock and along with the umbrella, popped up with dimensionals. The finished touch was a coating of clear Wink of Stella on the hearts, followed by a layer of gloss using the Fine-Tip Glue Pen.

Balloon Adventures Pop-Up Card for WWYS #109


Hello and welcome to this week’s WWYS Challenge. This week’s stamp set is Balloon Adventures. I love the amazing fonts in the sentiment images in this set! Here’s my card:


I went for a fun fold card with a pop-up element and it was inspired by a lady named Barb from www.barbstamps.com. Pull the sides of the card and the balloons pop up. How fun is that?!


You can write on the back of the card, which is also decorated.

Dragonfly Dreams Card for WWYS #108


Hello and welcome to this week’s WWYS Challenge. This week’s stamp set is Dragonfly Dreams and Oh My! that dragonfly is just gorgeous! Here’s my card:


I wish you could see the sparkle on this card! I tried a different technique – with my ink smooshing I included a couple of drops of clear Wink of Stella so that it is dispersed across the entire inked section. I think it looks better than adding it later as you would see lines where the sparkle is and isn’t (if that makes sense!). I was really pleased with the way it turned out, particularly after deciding to do the ink smooshing after I’d already stamped the dragonfly! Phew!


The dragonfly was created using my MISTI and a few steps. I first inked up just the wings with Archival Black ink and stamped. Then I cleaned my stamp off and inked up just the wings again with Versamark and then stamped this and clear heat embossed them. I then used markers to colour the body and stamped again. The MISTI is great for techniques like this as you get perfect placement every time. I then watercoloured the wings making sure to vary the colour and leave some spots un-inked (for realism you understand!) and added some Wink of Stella. After using my Stampin’ Trimmer to trim off both long edges and leaving the dragonfly’s wings extend past the panel, I gave it some dimension by using my Paper Snips to just cut the wings on the left and used a bone folder to give them some “curl”.


Of course I ink smooshed the inside of the card too before adding the sentiment. You can see what I mean about adding Wink of Stella afterwards here. Thanks for visiting my blog.

Here For You Card for WWYS #107

Hello and welcome to this week’s WWYS Challenge. We’re playing with the Here For You Stamp Set this week. Yeah I just couldn’t resist! With a sentiment that says “Well, this just stinks” …


What else can you make?! I started out with a Crumb Cake notecard, added splatters in Soft Suede, then some grass from the Wetlands Stamp Set, cut the “poop” out with the Cupcake Cutouts Framelits, using the image from the Sweet Cupcake Stamp Set, and stamped a couple of flies from the Beetles & Bugs Stamp Set. I added some odour fumes too!

“That” sentiment was white heat embossed on a strip of Early Espresso and popped up over some washi tape from the Moroccan suite. To finish off I tied some black baker’s twine around and stamped a coordinating sentiment inside. I also stamped some more flies on the envelope.

“Bubblegum Grunge” Card using Delicate Details for WWYS #106


Hello and welcome to this week’s WWYS Challenge. I’m excited to share today’s card with you. It’s one of those rare occasions where the seed of an idea results in a card that is even better than you imagined it. I’m dubbing the technique “Bubblegum Grunge” as it has an element of grunge to it in the background. Grunge is defined as untidy, nonconformist, lazy, dirty, grimy. Leave off the dirty and grimy, and that’s where I came up with the “bubblegum” bit – less hardcore than true grunge.


The card base is A6 size (A4 cut in half on the short side and folded in half) and cut from thick Whisper White cardstock. For the front panel I’ve used a piece of watercolour paper cut to a standard A6 size (10.5 x 14.9cm). I used two of the images from the Delicate Details Stamp Set and clear heat embossed in a few places, and then did a graduated watercolour wash with Blushing Bride, Rose Red and Real Red inks over the top.

TIP: Tape your paper down to a board using low-tack tape like painter’s tape or even washi to prevent  warping when you do a watercolour wash.

I then simply inked up the same images in the three pink/red shades as well as Crumb Cake, sometimes dabbing off some of the ink before stamping randomly, sometimes intentionally crooked, to get the grungy look I was after. The doily also got a bit of the watercolour treatment. I trimmed the piece until I was happy with it (it ended up at 9.7 x 14cm) and adhered it to the card base.


The sentiment on the front and inside are matching and come from the Suite Sentiments Stamp Set. This is one of my SO favourite sets – I really hope it’s in the next Annual Catalogue! I’ve white heat embossed it onto Blushing Bride cardstock and die cut it with the 2nd smallest  circle from the Stitched Shapes Framelits, and then sponged a bit of Blushing Bride ink to make the white stand out more. I did the same on the inside:


I finished my card off with some copper Metallic Thread, Blushing Bride 1cm Stitched Satin Ribbon, Blushing Bride Solid Baker’s Twine, and a scattering of Enamel Shapes in each of three colours.
