Daisy Garden – International Highlights Winners Hop

Hi and welcome today to my Blog.

To all you lovely people out there that Voted for me a ‘BIG….. THANK YOU’. Because of you and your Votes, today I am taking part in Kylie’s International Blog Highlights Winners Hop.

Daisy Garden

Daisy Garden by Stampin’ Up! ® is a beautiful large image of daisies…it can be used as a back ground or as a focal point on your card. There is so much detail to this stamp but is very easy to colour using Stanpin’ Blends, Watercolour Pencils or any other colouring technique.

Stampin' Up! Daisy Garden coloured with a range of Stampin' Blends

For this card I used the Stampin’ Blends to colour my image, I love colouring with my Blends because of how well they blend and how simple they are to use. The colours I used are – Old Olive Dark & Light, Balmy Blue Dark & Light, Misty Moonlight Light, Daffodil Delight Light, Mango Melody Dark(Deleated), Bronze.

Tips when using Stampin’ Blends

  • Use good quality smooth cardstock and the Basic White cardstock is my choice.
  • Only use water base inks to stamp your image – Memento Tuxedo Black is perfect.
  • Start with the light colour & then add your shading in the dark. After adding your dark colour go over it again with the light shade to blend the 2 colours. My daisies were coloured with the Light Balmy Blue, shading added with the dark Balmy Blue to about half the length of the petal. Misty Moonlight Light was added at the base of the petal then Light Balmy Blue added over the top of all colours to blend them together.
  • Always work in small areas at a time. The ink will blend better when the ink is still wet and dries very quickly. I worked on one flower head at a time.

Flower & Field – Sale-A-Bration Designer Series Paper

For this months customer ‘Thank You’ Cards I have used the FREE Flower & Field Designer Series Paper along with the Flowers for every season Memories & More Cards & Envelopes.

Each piece of Designer Series Paper was cut at 7.6 x 10.2cm (3 x 4″) and adhered with in the printed boarder on the card front.

The sentiment is part of the Punch Party Stamp Set, this is a Hostess stamp set you can earn… see the back of the Sale-A- Bration Catalogue or contact me to find out how.

Flower & Field DSP by Stampin' Up

I stamped the Thank You sentiment onto 1.9 cm strip of Whisper White cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. The ends of the sentiment where finished off by using the Banners Pick a Punch. A 18cm length of ribbon was folded and attached under the banner using Seal adhesive.

With the Everyday Label Punch I punched out a label from vellum and adhered the sentiment to it. This was then attached to the card front with a couple of dimensionals.

**Here’s a little food for thought for you…..when you purchasing the the products used today (except for the Punch Party Stampset) you have spent enough to earn the FREE Flower & Field Designer Series Paper from the Sale-A-Bration.

Art Gallery – Thank You

This is the last Blog Hop for 2020…and this card says it all…’Thank you’. Thank you for following me, supporting me by liking, commenting and purchasing from me. This card was made for all of you. I am looking forward to next year and sharing with you all more of my projects.

Art Gallery by Stampin' Up!

This card was a bit of a mystery card card because I wasn’t sure how it was going to turn out, but I am pleased with the results. I have used the Art Gallery Photopolymer Stamp Set, from the Fine Art Floral Suite Collection which you will be able to find in the 2021 Jan-Jun Mini Catalaogue.

If you would like a copy of the 2021 Mini, live in Australia & you don’t have a Demonstrator let me know HERE …I will get one to you.

Have you ever tried to stamp on ‘Black’?

You can’t stamp on black as black will absorb the colour, so you need to add a barrier between the black and the colour you want to use. Whisper White Craft Ink is the best product for this as you can stamp on top of it or colour it with water colour pencils. I recommend you use the Stamparatus when doing this technique as you need to stamp exactly in the same place. The Whisper White Craft Ink takes longer to dry so make sure that the ink is dry before stamping on top with another colour.

Can you work out what colours I used?

Can you work out what colours I used…I bet you can’t as I was even surprised how the colours I used changed so much.

  • Stems – Granny Apple Green
  • Flower – Magenta Madness
  • Flower highlights – Melon Mambo
  • Flower Center – Gold Embossed

So what do you think…a BIG difference isn’t it. I even stamped the colours a couple of times to get a brighter colour. I may have achieved a true colour if I had used water colour pencils. So if you are going to try this at home using different colours, I would suggest you do a test first.

I am still very happy with the results. This is a simple card to make and because you use the Stamparatus you could make multiples of this card easily..perfect for my December Thank You cards.
