He’s the Man- Every Day with you……

He’s the Man, an adventures man…..Using the ‘He’s all That Bundle’ by Stampin’ Up!® I created this almost Nautical card.

This card has ended becoming such an elegant card and I love it…I hope you do too. It is a simple card and with not many elements to it.

I have used one of the new In-Colors Starry Sky with Sahara Sand and Basic White with a bit of Gold

He's all That Bundle by Stampin' Up!

Using Blending Brushes I ink all around the card front taking it from dark at the edges to lighter in the middle. Starry Sky on starry sky is stunning, it gave so much depth, I then stamped the compass image on top of the so it looks like a watermark.

The stamped and die-cut sentiment sits on top of White bakers twine, which was wrapped around the card front.

Leaves were punched out using the using the Bough Punch in Sahara Sand, Gold and White. The Sahara Sand leaves were brushed with the blending brushes using the ink that was left on the brush from doing the card front.

Waves of Inspiration

My Live this week I used the Waves of Inspiration from the NEW 2022-23 Annual Catalogue. This was so much fun to make…who doesn’t like to make a mess sometimes…Me!

This card uses the Emboss Resist Technique with a water colour wash to create the background. Prior to making this card i played with a few ideas on how to colour my watercolour paper and in the end came up with the best result. Some of my play pieces I have shown in the video.

You could use Shimmery White cardstock instead of the watercolour Fluid 100 but you may get a slightly different result. Anyway every time you make this card you will get different effects.

I did forget to stamp the birds on my Live and did them later, they were stamped in the Starry Sky Ink.

Waves of Inspiration by Stampin' Up!

This weeks Live I show how to make this card using the Hues of Happiness…

  • Card Base- Thick Basic White 14.9 x 21cm, score at 10.5cm

Hues of Happiness

The Hues of Happiness Suite is one of the NEW products coming in the Stampin’ Up! ® Annual Catalogue to be released on the 3rd May.

The suite is made up of Happiness Abounds Stamps, a line drawn rose image that can be stamped and coloured using either Blends,Watercolour Pencils or Inks. There are 8 image stamps and 7 sentiments in a beautiful script font.

The Happiness Abounds Bundle includes the dies, there are 8 dies that match all of the images i the stamps. Then 3 extra dies, one that cuts and embosses a background image and 2 others that cut 2 different edges to look like pages from a spiral bound book.

The colours in the Hues of Happiness Designer Series Paper are stunning, they are bright and vibrant. One side side of the paper has gorgeous rose images and some these can be cut out with the Dies as I have done for my cards. The other side of the papers are just as beautiful. A couple of the pages have small floral prints others are a dry brush look of colour. Both sides of the papers are variegated in colour which gives you a of colours to choose from…It’s hard to explain you just have to see for your self.

To finish the suite off it also comes with beautiful Glossy Dots Assortment, 4 colours of yumminess.

This weeks Live I show how to make these cards using the Hues of Happiness…

Inspiration for this card came from a group on Facebook – Clean and Simple Cardmaking

Flowering Tulips

My card today uses the Flowering Tulips Bundle along with the Flowering Fields Designer Series Paper. and Evening Evergreen Windowpane Check Ribbon. This can be found in the 2022 Jan-Jun Mini Catalogue by Stampin’ Up!®.

The Flowering Tulips Stamps are a two step stamp and the colours I used for the tulips here are Highland Heather, Calypso Coral and Mango Melody. I stamped the finer detail stamp using full strength ink and used the 2nd stamp with ink that I had stamped off before stamping on my project- 2 step second Generation stamping.

Flowering Tulips Bundle by Stampin' Up! Jan-Jun 2022 Mini Catalogue

The dies that are included in this bundle allows you to die cut 3 dimension tulip flowers, though I did not use them here. I did use the leaf dies to cut out the leaves I had stamped. There is also another die that cuts out groups of little squares. I have used these to add texture to the panel under my tulips also to the card insert. It also allows for the lovely DSP to show through. Before die cutting the squares I did stamp the stems and a few leaves in Old Olive and Evening Evergreen ink.

Flowering Tulips Bundle by Stampin' Up! Jan-Jun 2022 Mini Catalogue

Other Dies used in the card is the Stitched So Sweetly Dies to cut the panel on the front and the sentiment was die cut using the Layering Circles.

This was a fun bundle to use and has a great variety for sentiments in different formats to suite all needs.
