February International Blog Highlights – Thank You

Hi and welcome to my Blog.

INDIA

Beautiful, Bright and Vibrant

One day I’d love to go and explore India’s love of COLOUR.

For the time being I am enjoying India through the camera lens of a friend who travels to India often. Her photos are always so bright and vibrant with colour, from beautiful Blue or Turquoise doorways. To ladies dancing in the streets wearing bright Sari’s in pinks, reds, blues and greens.

There use of mosaics and intricate decorations of their forts, temples and palaces are amazing.

The colours of India are the inspiration for my card.

Making this card was a bit of an experiment.

  1. How was I going to create the back ground.
  2. I wanted to create a mosaic type image

So I tried two different techniques using the same Stampin’ Up!® Products.

Products used

How did I create this card..

Firstly, I tried Colouring the Shimmery White Cardstock using Pigment Sprinkles..Stampin’ Up!®.

**Shimmery White Cardstock is a good alternative to using Watercolour paper.

  1. Sprayed card stock with water and sprinkled both colours on, adding more water to get the colour to move and cover the area. With this technique there is more movement and deeper colour where the Pigment Sprinkles touch the cardstock.
  2. Mix Rubbing Alcohol with the Pigment Sprinkles in a Spritzer bottle and spray card stock…one colour from each side. This gave a even and brighter finish.

I love how they both turned out but the intensity of the colours used with Rubbing alcohol sprayed onto the cardstock really gave me the look I was after.

To bring back some of the Bermuda Bay into the back ground (that was lost a little when spraying the two colours), I mixed the embossing past with 2 drops of Re-Inker.

Working quickly ( as the paste drys very quick) I layered the mask on top of my card front and with a pallet Knife spread the past over the top.

I decided to create the coloured cardstock for the flourish the same way as I created the background using the Mango Melody and Melon Mambo

The sentiment “thank You, so very much” is from the Flourishing Phrases Cling-Mount Stamp Set and was embossed on Basic Black cardstock with White Embossing Powder.

All that’s left to do is put this card together..

Measurements used….

  • Card Base – Melon Mambo 21 x 14.5cm, scored at 10.5cm
  • Card Mat – Bermuda Bay 10 x 14cm
  • Card Front trimmed to 9.7 x 13.7 cm

The colours of India have truly inspired me

I have added my card to Kylie Bertucci’s International Stampin’ Up!® Blog Highlights for February Theme- Thank you.

We are a group of Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrators from around the world taking part in a training program helping us to build a successful Stampin’ Up!® Business and reach some of our goals. Thank you, we really appreciate your support.

Breathtaking Bouquet

 

This card was made using Stampin’ Up!® Breathtaking Bouquet Cling Stamp Set from the 2020 Mini Catalogue and Pigment Sprinkles.

Have you played with the Pigment Sprinkles? Get some …you will love playing with them.

The colours are beautiful, they can be strong and bright or soft and subtle depending on how you use them and the amount of powder you use. The effect I was working on was bright and vibrant so I used a lot of the sprinkles in a single area.

Hint…

With Pigment Sprinkles a little bit goes a long way, so I would suggest to test them out and play.

I stamped the Breathtaking Bouquet image in VersaMark and heat embossed it with white embossing powder. Then with the sprinkles I coloured the image only used 4 of the 6 colours in the sprinkles- Gorgeous Grape, Melon Mambo, Granny Apple Green and Mango Melody. I layered the powder first and then sprayed the later trying not to get too much over spray which will blow the powder outwards.

When the watercolour paper was dry (with a heat gun) it was trimmed down to allow for double matting in Gorgeous Grape and Granny Apple Green cardstock. I balanced the card by having a wider white boarder around the matted card front and also by adding the Whisper White 1/4″ (6.4 Mm) Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon wrapped around twice and finished with a bow.

A few Noble Peacock Rhinestones in Gorgeous Grape and Granny Apple Green add a hint of sparkle.

There is no sentiment on this card which means that this can be used for any occasion.

Timeless Tulips Pencil Topper

Welcome to my blog post today, I hope you are all having a lovely Sunday.

Friday night was my first class for 2020 and we had so much fun. The class was based around the Timeless Tulips Bundle from the 2020 Mini Catalogue.

Here are the projects the class made, we had so much fun….lots of laughing, as always.

Video below with what I used and How these tulips were made.

This card we used the sponge Brayer to create the  monochromatic background and then sprinkled some water on the card front to create the splatter look. The water pushes the colour away leaving the white. spots.

This card was CASED from the card we made at On Stage last year. On Stage is one of the benefits of being a Demonstrator, you get to play with some of the products before they are released.

I have added my FB Live video showing how the Pencil Toppers were made.
