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.

Lift Me Up Card for WWYS #104


Hello and welcome to this week’s WWYS Challenge. We’re playing with the Lift Me Up Stamp Set this week. With its co-ordinating Up & Away Thinlits Dies and Carried Away Designer Series Paper (which you can earn for free with a $90 purchase until 31 March) it’s so easy to create gorgeous cards.


Anyone who knows me knows I love to make “different” cards – you know, out there, off the wall stuff. So when I was designing this card I thought “Why not send ACTUAL smiles across the miles?”! And so I used the medium sized balloon die and some Fabulous Foil Designer Acetate to make a “sack” of smiles. OK, I know the design on the acetate looks more like fish scales than netting, but I wasn’t brave enough to draw it! The focal image sits on a panel of Shimmery White Cardstock on which I did a colour wash using Emerald Envy, Marina Mist and Tempting Turquoise inks. I think it’s a fair representation of green grass graduating up to vivid blue sky.


And how cute are those smiley faces? They’re from the little stamp set that comes with the Good Vibes Project Life Accessory Pack. I combined them with some silver and white heart sequins from the Metallics Sequin Assortment.

Moon Baby Shower Invitations for WWYS #103

Hello and welcome to this week’s WWYS Challenge. This week we are using the super cute Moon Baby stamp set.  As fate would have it, I was fortunate enough to be asked to make a bunch of baby shower invitations for my niece! I took my inspiration for this project from the Pretty Pocket Card Kit in the Sale-a-Bration brochure.

Item #143832 Pretty Pocket Card Kit. You can choose this product free when you spend $90 on product from the current catalogues.

I made my pockets from Melon Mambo and die-cut the opening for the sentiment with a die from the Project Life Cards & Labels Framelits Dies.

The invitations were printed on Very Vanilla cardstock and punched using the Scalloped Tag Topper punch and then the sides snipped off. I left room at the top to stamp the sentiment from the Balloon Adventures Stamp Set in Melon Mambo ink. I attached some Melon Mambo 3.2mm Stitched Ribbon through the tag section and adhered a small piece of magnetic strip on the back.

For the adorable babies, I first stamped the image in Archival Basic Gray onto the front of the pocket, and then again on Whisper White. I watercoloured the umbrella and baby, fussy cut them and popped them up on the pocket with dimensionals. I also added some Clear Wink of Stella to the umbrella and the baby’s onesie. The final touch was a dollop of Silver Sparkle Dazzling Details at the top of the umbrella.

Update: I’ve had many enquiries about the measurements for this project – thank you! So here they are:

Tasty Trucks Gift Bag for WWYS #102


Hello and welcome to this week’s WWYS Challenge. This week’s stamp set is from the Sale-a-Bration Brochure – Tasty Trucks. You can earn this set for free with a $90 order. These adorably cute images lend themselves to lots of projects. I’m thinking they’d be great for gift tags, 3 x 3 notecards, as well as gift bag decoration, which I’ve done with today’s project.


I’ve layered the truck image which I coloured with watercolour pencils onto Bermuda Bay. These were die cut with the Lots of Labels Framelits. I also added some accents to the trucks tyres, windows and the ice-creams using a white paint pen, and finished off with some clear Wink of Stella (although you can’t see it in the photo).

Keeping with the colour scheme (kind of) I layered a silver metallic foil doily along with two banners cut using the Banners Framelits from Silver Glimmer Paper and one of the designs from the Serene Scenery DSP Stack, added some Sequin Trim and 3.2mm Stitched Ribbon (both in Bermuda Bay) and attached them to the bag with one of the cutest little paper clips from the 2017 Occasions Catalogue Sending Love suite. I added a glue dot behind the bow to secure it properly. The sentiment on the banner also comes from the Tasty Trucks set.

The bag itself has had the watercolouring and ink pad smooshing treatment in Bermuda Bay and Pool Party. Of course this makes the bag look crinkly, but I kinda like that look. What do you think? Do you love it or hate it?

Sealed With Love for WWYS #101


Hello and welcome to this week’s WWYS Challenge. This week’s stamp set is Sealed With Love, a great one for Valentine’s cards, but it can just as easily be used for cards like the one I’ve made to send to family and friends to let them know you love them.

 


On a Shimmery White card base I’ve added another panel (also Shimmery White) onto which I clear embossed the sentiment and then ink blended Real Red, Melon Mambo and Watermelon Wonder. I then die cut the panel using the hearts border die from the Love Notes Framelits Dies. I die cut the border again from a piece with tiny strings of hearts from the Sending Love Designer Series Paper Stack so that it fitted perfectly under the main panel. I adhered the two pieces to another piece of Whisper White cardstock and adhered the whole panel to the card base with Foam Adhesive Strips.

Tip: When adding composite pieces to a panel it is better to make it a little larger than the card base and then cut it down to the desired size. This allows you leeway with regard to the border around the panel and the relative size of each element (in this case the depth of the DSP piece. It also allows you to trim away the edges of an ink blended piece which are usually much darker than the rest of the piece that can make the finished card look “untidy”.

I decided it needed something more, so I flicked some water off an acrylic block with a paintbrush until I was happy with the look, dabbing the excess water off with a paper towel.

The finishing touches were Wink of Stella added to the die cut hearts and a few silver metallic hearts.

I also added a strip of the Designer Series Paper to the inside of the card.

WWYS Hits 100 – Hooray!


Hello! Welcome to this week’s WWYS Challenge. This is a milestone week as What Will You Stamp? has reached 100 Challenges! Wahoo!! This week we’re using Number of Years Stamp Set. I made a special 6″ x 6″ congratulations card for today using the floral spray from this set. I also used a few other stamp sets to complete the project.


This card was inspired by Jennifer Maguire; she made some similar cards using a bunch of smaller images to make a background pattern of sorts but she coloured hers. I decided to go with full on gold! The Hooray sentiment comes from the Confetti Celebration Stamp Set, and I’ve also used some of the little floral and leaf images from the Love & Affection Stamp Set. After heat embossing the sentiment in the centre, I arranged the small images in the MISTI and stamped in Versamark then heat embossed. Turning the card a quarter turn each time I repeated this 3 times. The MISTI is a great tool for this kind of technique, and I don’t think I would have attempted this card without it.


For the inside of the card I used this GORGEOUS sentiment from the new Birthday Blast Stamp Set from the 2017 Occasions Catalogue. I just adore this font and I think it looks fabulous in gold! I layered Whisper White on Gold Foil. I also added some matching washi tape  from the Pop of Pink pack to the bottom of the panel for that extra somethin’ somethin’.

Tip:  When layering, especially with more expensive specialty cardstocks like foil sheets, cut the panel to size and then cut all the way around about 1 cm in from the edges, so you’re left with a frame. This saves wasting your cardstock.


To finish off this project, I made an envelope and embellished with more of that washi tape on the flap.

Sunshine Sayings for WWYS #99


 

Hello and welcome to our WWYS Challenge for this week! I have to confess I haven’t used the Sunshine Sayings set as much as a should have, but I had so much fun making this card, I think I’ll be using it more in future!  I wanted to keep it simple – well as simple as it can be for me! – and I had the design kinda mapped out in my head. But I have a confession to make – I actually meant to make a portrait card not a landscape version as you see here. Any guesses as to what happened? Well, after die cutting the flower I happened to flip my card over and I had already stamped my signature stamp on the back in, you guessed it, landscape! It was one of those self-deprecating moments – not pretty! But that’s the thing with cardmaking – it doesn’t matter; you can always make it work! I love that!!! So I just stamped and adhered my sentiment sideways too! 🙂

 


 

I did a bit of shading behind the flower and applied some Wink of Stella and it looks gorgeous in real life.

Bella & Friends for WWYS #98

 

Welcome to our WWYS Challenge for this week! Bella and Friends is such a cutesy set and just begs to be watercoloured. I had yet to try out my brand new watercolour pencils from the Occasions Catalogue (if you haven’t got your copy yet, click on the big orange button below this post and I’ll get it straight out to you). Back to the watercolour pencils – I used an aqua painter on the little dog image using watercolour paper. You can also use a blender pen if you’re using normal cardstock or DSP. I was AMAZED with the result; the colours blended so easily.

 

 

I backed the image with a piece of Sweet Sugarplum stamped with the dotty image from Playful Backgrounds and paired it with the dotty paper from the Playful Pallette DSP Stack. The sentiment was die-cut using one of the dies from the Project Life Cards & Labels Framelits. The ribbon is new from the Occasions Catalogue’s Succulent Garden Ribbon Combo Pack. It’s gorgeous and soft.

 

Here’s a close-up of the watercoloured image.

Thoughtful Banners for WWYS #97

 

Hello and welcome! I hope you all had a very merry Christmas and a happy New Year.  Our very first What Will You Stamp? Challenge for 2017 is to create using the Thoughtful Banners Stamp Set. This set coordinates with the Duet Banner Punch and is very useful for putting together your own message as there are LOTS of words and phrases. The stamp set and punch are available to purchase as a bundle.

 

Item # 142330 – Thoughtful Banners Photopolymer Bundle

 

I decided to do a sentiment background and chose Mint Macaron and Smoky Slate as my colours.

 

 

I had a strip with the negative from a project I had made using the Flourish Thinlits so I knew I wanted to incorporate that piece into my design. I also wanted to try out the new Lift Me Up bundle. So I decided on a graduation card for this project.

 

 

I stamped rows of the sentiment in Smoky Slate and one in Mint Macaron as a highlight. I then simply adhered the balloons, the banner and scattered some metallic stars.

 

Tip: You can often save and use the negative pieces from diecuts to use on another project, saving cardstock and giving you extra elements for another card.

 

If you like this colour combo, feel free to share and pin it. You can find more on my Pinterest colour inspiration board.
