Jeweled Balloon

Create your own background panel, using strips of leftover designer series paper. They don't even have to be the same width. As long as the length is the same, you can make it work. Thoughts? 




Stamps:
   Lift Me Up

Paper:
   Very Vanilla A-2, 4-1/2 x 3-1/4, Scrap
   Real Red DSP Strips
   Basic Black 2-5/8 x 3-1/2

Ink:
   Tuxedo Black Memento

Technique:
   Die Cutting
   Punching

Accessories:
   Up & Away Thinlits Dies
   Washi Label Punch
   Basic Rhinestone Jewels
   Washi Tape
   Dimensionals
   Fine Tip Glue Pen
   Adhesive

First, I pulled some leftover strips out of the Real Red DSP pack. 

I then adhered them onto the Very Vanilla panel. Flipping every other one to establish a pattern.

I then attached this panel to the Very Vanilla card front, centering it on the top part of the card. 

Next, I added a strip of Washi tape to even out the bottom of the card.

I then die cut the hot air balloon, using the Up & Away Thinlits Dies. 

Next, I adhered it, using the Fine Tip Glue Pen.

I then stamped, punched, and attached the sentiment with dimensionals.

Lastly, I added some Basic Rhinestone Jewels to the balloon.

Printing Four

Make four cards from one large panel. Stamp a 10-1/2 x 8" panel in a pattern. Then cut it into four card fronts, measuring 5-1/4 x 4. Attach each one to a card front to make four cards. Thoughts? 




Stamps:

   Blackberry Bliss 5-3/8 x 4-1/8
   Basic White 5-1/4 x 4 (2)

   Mossy Meadow
   Pool Party

Technique:
   CAS
   4 From 1 - Stamp in a Pattern

First, I made a pencil mark to show the mid-point of the panel.

I then stamped the sentiment in each of the four top corners, using Blackberry Bliss.

Next, I stamped the large leaf with Cajun Craze.

I then stamped the fern, using Mossy Meadow.

Next, I stamped the smaller berry branch, using Blackberry Bliss.

I then filled in the rest of the areas with splashes of Pool Party.

Next, I cut the panel into 4 panels measuring 5-1/4 x 4.

I then adhered each panel onto a Blackberry Bliss matte, and then onto a Pool Party card front.

Watercolor Fear

Do you feel like getting a bit artsy? Here's a watercolor gem for you to try. I am going to choose lighter colors on my next one. Check it out. 




Stamps:
   Rose Wonder

Paper:
   Hello Honey A-2, 5 x 3-3/4
   Tangelo Twist 5-1/4 x 4
   Watercolor 4-3/4 x 3-1/2
   Basic White 5-1/4 x 4 (Inside)

Ink:
   Tuxedo Black Memento

Re-Inkers:
   Hello Honey
   Tangelo Twist

Technique:
   Watercolor Runs

Accessories:
   Adhesive

First, I sprayed the watercolor panel with plenty of water.

I then added a drop of re-inker and let it run by moving the panel in a direction (up, down, sideways, diagonally, etc.).

Next, I repeated the previous step using both Hello Honey and Tangelo Twist.

I then set the panel aside and let it dry completely before proceeding. 

I adhered the Hello Honey panel onto the Tangelo Twist panel and then onto the Hello Honey card front.

Once, the watercolor panel was completely dry, I stamped the sentiment, using Tuxedo Black Memento ink and adhered it onto the card front.

Lastly, I added a Basic White panel to the inside of the card.

Kidney Stone

When it comes to feelings, I choose happy. I am an optimist with rose-colored lenses. Does this mean I never feel sad, angry, disappointed, etc.? Of course not, but since I am in control of how I feel, I choose happy. So, I like the humor on this card. Thoughts? 




Stamps:
   A Little Snarky (Sweet 'N Sassy)

Paper:
   Melon Mambo A-2, Scrap
   Pop of Pink DSP 5-1/4 x 4
   Basic White 5-1/4 x 4 (Inside), Scrap

Ink:
   Melon Mambo

Technique:
   Die Cutting

Accessories:
   Stitched Rectangle Framelits
   Brights Candy Dots 
   Dimensionals
   Adhesive

First, I stamped and die cut the sentiment, using Melon Mambo ink and the Stitched Rectangle Framelits.

I then adhered the sentiment onto a Melon Mambo matte, also die cut from the same framelits.

Next, I adhered the Pop of Pink DSP panel onto the Melon Mambo card front.

I then attached the sentiment, using dimensionals.

Lastly, I added a couple of Brights Candy Dots and adhered a Basic White panel to the inside of the card.

Tiles

I like die cuts that you can manipulate. Obviously, I left it alone for this card. It does cover the entire card front. Still, I could cut it at an angle to form another shape, or straight forward to make it smaller. Ideas? 


Tiles


Stamps:
   Many Mates

Paper:
   Wisteria Wonder A-2
   Almost Amethyst 5-1/2 x 4-1/4
   Basic White 2-1/2 x 1-3/4, 5-1/4 x 4 (Inside)

Ink:
   Tuxedo Black Memento
   Almost Amethyst

Technique:
   Sponging
   Die Cutting

Accessories:
   Many Medallions Dies
   Something Fancy Dies
   Whisper White 3/8" Taffeta Ribbon - 24"
   Basic Rhinestone Jewels
   Sponge
   Glue Dots
   Adhesive

First, I die cut the tiles, using Many Medallions Dies.

I then threaded the ribbon through the top of the die cut as shown above. The ribbon comes from behind into the first opening on the right, over the first tile and back into the back of the tiles and up through the center of the tiles. The same on the left side. You tie the ribbon into a bow and trim the tails.

Next, I attached the die cut to the Wisteria Wonder card front, using glue dots.

I then stamped, die cut, and sponged the sentiment, using the Something Fancy Dies. I sponged on some Almost Amethyst ink around all of the edges.

Next, I attached the sentiment to the card front.

Lastly, I added a few rhinestone jewels and adhered a Basic White panel to the inside of the card.

Here are three other cards I made with different sentiments:

Brilliant Washi

Can you believe I stamped my own washi tape? What do you think? 






Stamps:
   Postage Collection
   Postage Due
   Silhouette Scenes

Paper:
   Only Orange A-2
   Basic Black 5-3/8 x 4-1/8
   Basic White 5-1/4 x 4 (2), Leftover Strips

Ink:
   Elegant Eggplant
   Poppy Parade
   Only Orange
   Brilliant Blue
   Island Indigo
   Bermuda Bay
   Blushing Bride
   Tuxedo Black Memento

Technique:
   Handmade Washi Tape

Accessories:
   Star Designer Elements
   Adhesive

First, I taped two strips of leftover Basic White paper together. I made sure the strips are touching each other. the tape is placed at the ends of the strips to keep them from moving. I taped three or four sets. 

I then gathered stamp sets that had small images, various ink colors, and stickers.

Next, I randomly stamped various images, using various colors, onto the strips of Basic White.

I then decided to grab the Blushing Bride ink pad and slightly swipe it across the strips of paper to tone down the white. (You could also sponge or brush on the color or even use various colors.)

Next, I added a few circle stickers that I had. You want to place the entire sticker on only one strip.

I then took the strips apart and cut them to whatever size I needed for my creation. I did use every bit on various cards.

Once, my washi tape was made, I adhered two strips on each side of a Basic White panel.

I then stamped the girl silhouette image and sentiment in the center of the panel, using Tuxedo Black Memento ink.

Next, I added another strip of my washi tape on the bottom of her feet.

I then adhered the panel onto a Basic Black matte, and then onto the Only Orange card front.

Lastly, I added a few Star Designer Elements and adhered a Basic White panel to the inside of the card.

Thank you so very much for being here. I appreciate you taking the time to glance at my work. Please Contact Me if I can be of service.

Tranquil Wonderland

 I enjoy creating with suite collections. Stampin' Up! makes it so easy for me. Everything coordinates perfectly. So, all I have to do is come up with creative ways to put it all together. Thoughts? 




Stamps:
   Eastern Beauty

Paper:
   Fresh Fig A-2
   Very Vanilla 5-1/4 x 4 (2)
   Dapper Denim 2-1/2" Sq.
   Tranquil Tide 2-1/2" Sq.
   Eastern Palace DSP 5-1/4 x 1/2

Technique:
   Die Cutting

Accessories:
   Eastern Gold Vinyl Stickers
   Basic Rhinestone Jewels
   Winter Wonderland Embellishment

   Glue Dots
   Adhesive

First, I adhered the Eastern Palace DSP strip to the left edge of a Very Vanilla panel.

I then added a gold scalloped decorative edge to the DSP. This came from the Eastern Gold Vinyl Stickers.

Next, I die cut the flower in both Dapper Denim and Tranquil Tide and adhered it to the top portion of the Very Vanilla panel.

I then stamped the top and bottom of the panel, using Tranquil Tide ink.

Next, I stamped the sentiment under the flower and randomly stamped the flowers with Fresh Fig.

I then adhered the panel onto the Fresh Fig card front.

Lastly, I added a few rhinestones, a Winter Wonderland Embellishment to the center of the large flower, and adhered a Very Vanilla panel to the inside of the card.
