Forever Lovely….GDP#174

WOW!……It’s another week….and February already, the first month of 2019 has gone. Christmas and New Year has been packed away and now we are looking toward the next ‘Event’ on the calendar.

Valentines Day – a day where we celebrate those we love whether that is Husbands, wives, boyfriends, girlfriends or family and friends. Its those that we keep close in our hearts, those we want to tell “You are special to me!”

Stampin’ Up! have released in the Occasions Catalogue a beautiful Suite that celebrates ‘LOVE’. I used it last week in the Global Design Project Challenge and I can’t get enough of it. So I’m using it again….‘All My Love’

The card I have made is not a ‘Valentines Day Card’…but I made it in mind for a couple getting married or engaged..

Global Design Project 174 – Sketch Challenge

GDP#174- Sketch Challenge has given us another wonderful sketch to use…if you pop over to their Blog you will find some amazing projects using this sketch. Here’s the LINK to make it easy for you to find..

How was my card made….

Stampin’ Up! Designer Series Paper (DSP) used on this card is part of the ‘All My Love Suite’ which includes the Forever Lovely stamp/bundle and its called ‘All My Love’. The colours that co-ordinate with the DSP are..Balmy Blue, Crumb Cake, Lovely Lipstick, Flirty Flamingo, Soft Sea Foam and Whisper White. I think I have managed to use all of these in my card.

The flowers were stamped in Flirty Flamingo and the leaves in Soft sea Foam.

Tip 1:

Make sure your ink pad is not too juicy…..I had to used the back of a spoon to push down the ink. These stamps are part of the Distinctive Stamp range which means that you are able to stamp with one colour but because of the texture of the stamp its self you get different tones of that colour. Example you will see on my card some leaves are dark and others are lighter – one colour, one stamp.

The DSP used has loose outlines of the flower and leaves done in white. I would have loved to be able to White Emboss the same on my card…but the are distinctive stamps and its only one stamp…

Tip 2:

So I used a white gel pen to out line my flowers. Before the flowers looked too heavy now the white just pulls it all together. I found it easier to also stamp these images with the Stamparutus.

My sentiments I used comes from the ‘First Frost’ stamps from the 2018 Holiday Catalogue and its one of the carry-over products…“YAY!”  you can still purchase it. The small scalloped edge is from the Delightfully Detailed Laser-cut Specialty Paper.

Thank you for visiting my Blog.

All the products I have used will be listed below my Blog and is linked back to my On-Line Store to make it easier for you to purchase…if you Live in Australia!.

Coming up to Valentines I thought I’d do a card using the Bloomin’ Love Stamp set,

but I wanted it to be a card you could give to a friend and that could be used at other times in the year.

IMAG0499

I wanted this card to be soft and pretty….something “GIRLY”

I sponged the floral heart in Mint Macaron and Crisp Cantaloupe (deleted colour).

With a bit of Mint Macaron Lace wraped around the card and a butterfly cut from vellum, with a row of pearls and a touch of gold thread

finishes it of as a beautiful card to give to that special friend on any occasion.

Global Design Project #GDP018…..Is in the Air……

Time again for a Global Design Project….

and this week it’s another fantastic sketch made by Teneale Williams!

GDP018When I first started out in stampin’ Up! I played around with colour on the “Clear Blocks” and using that as a stamp.

It gives you a “Water colour Background”,I love the different effects you can get.

So I decided for this layout that’s what I would do.

IMAG0374

To get this effect you do have to work quickly so have every thing ready…

IMAG0375_1

  • Card stock, in this case Shimmery White, it will give that little bit of extra sparkle and will handle the water used.
  • Spritzer bottle filled with water
  • Stampin’ Write Markers, Blushing Bride, Calypso Coral and Watermellon Wonder..(don’t you love the colour names…I do)

Using the Stampin’ Write markers I coloured in the block starting with the lighter colour at the top

and working down to a darker colour at the bottom.

Then a light spray with the Spritzer onto the block and stamp down onto card stock. I held it there for approx 2 minutes, just to let the colour spread.

Carefully lift the block, you may have a pooling of ink just blot any excess ink with paper towel or tissue.

When dry stamp your image on top…here I embossed the floral heart from “Bloomin’ Love” and embossed with white embossing powder.

Triple mounted…added some pearls and a sentiment just under frames.

Give it ago…would love to hear how you went with this great technique.

Keep on Stampin’ Up!
