Mini Pocket Envelope Dies

Mini Pocket Envelope Dies…. are just the right size for a Gift Tag, to hold a Gift Card, you can add it to the front of a card with an extra message inside or add on to a scrapbook page to hold your journaling…the ideas are endless.

On my ‘Live’ today I used the Stampin’ Up! Mini Pocket Envelope Dies to created a very ‘Shabby Chic’ style or even ‘Grunge’ style Pocket Envelope.

To decorate the envelope I used Quite Meadow Stamps, Stitchery Stamps, Meadow Dies and Brilliant Wings Dies

I used the blending brushes to add layers of age around the edges and splatters of White craft Ink and Wink of Stella.

This style is so out of my comfort zone …. but I had so much fun creating it. In the gallery above is also photo’s showing the another Mini Pocket Envelope using the Hues of Happiness suite.

Please excuse the start of the video as I had a small sound issue which we fixed..this is Live no editing…so I hope you enjoy

Dragonfly Garden

This card I created a watercolour back ground using a smooching technique and an acrylic block and stamped flowers from the Dragonfly Garden Stamps.

Using Fluid 100 Water Colour Paper by Stampin’ Up! and two stamp pads – Tahitian Tide & Parakeet Party.

TIPS: The flower and sentiment was stamped with Memento Black Ink. Memento is a water based ink so I had to make sure that the watercolour back ground was very dry before stamping. If you were to do the watercolouring after the stamping the black would bleed. You should use Stazon whenever you are doing watercolour on top of an image.

Watercolour background using 'Smooching Technique with an acrylic block and Dragonfly Garden Stamping.

I used the same technique a couple of weeks back on ‘Live with Michele’ You can watch the video HERE on YouTube. In this video I used 3 colours and a smaller block..With this card I used ‘E’ size block

Beautiful Shapes Facebook Live Friday

Beautiful Shapes….I just love these hexagons, for the past week or two I have been working on an English Paper Piecing quilt using hexagons. Using up lots of little scrapes of fabric left over from face masks I was making over the last couple of years.

Whenever I do a watercolour card I usually have practice pieces or pieces I wasn’t happy with. Instead of throwing them away you could cut then up using dies…leaves, flowers or hexagons and use to create other interesting projects.

So for my ‘Live’ this week I created hexagons using the Beautiful Shapes Dies

A card made using left over watercolour pieces cut into hexigons using the Beautiful Shape Dies by Stampin' Up!

The sentiment is from the Happiness Abounds Stamp set and the dies I used to cut it out is from the Stylish Shapes Dies. I sat the sentiment on top of a vellum circle as it got lost a little with the background DSP- Perfectly Penciled and coloured Hexagons.

Below is my quilt…it’s now twice the size…great while watching TV.

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.

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
