Tranquil Father's Day or Masculine Birthday Card Share

Hello Friends!

Welcome back for another Sea Of Textures card share.  I created this card for Father's Day but you could very easily make it as a masculine birthday card, or a child's card too.

The background is from the Tranquil Textures designer series paper, and I created the words with the Make A Difference stamp set. This set has lots of letters and they tie together very easily.  You will be able to do any saying / sentiment you want with this set!
I also used the Sea of Textures stamp set and matching Under the Seas dies.

You can purchase the stamp set and bundle, along with lots of other cool products from Stampin' Up! through my Canadian Online Store.  If you choose me as your Demonstrator and use my Current Host Code (located on the right side up near the top of my blog in a brightly coloured box), I will send you a surprise in the mail as my Thank You!

Don't you just love the net image (die cut in Soft Sea Foam)?  It's from the dies as well!  And there is also a net image in the stamp set.

Please have a go at making a card with this bundle, you are going to love it!

Waterfront Eclipse Card Share

Making cards for my family members is sometimes difficult. They see all my cards hanging on my Inspiration Wall, so I try not to use on of those.  Which means I have to come up with something new, make 2 of them, give one to them for their birthday, then use the second one for a class card. LOL

Sometimes it works this way, and sometimes I get behind and it doesn't.  The birthday card for our grown sons for this year was one that worked this way very well.  They are twins, so I had to make 3 cards, not just 2.

Here's the card I came up with ....

It is stamped with the Waterfront stamp set in Night of Navy and Island Indigo in varying degrees of ink.  This means some images were stamped off once or twice before being stamped on the card.

Once the stamping was done, I used 2 of the Layering Oval dies to cut out the frame. This was then popped up on dimensionals to mimic the Eclipse Technique.

The Waterfront stamp set has so many great images to create wonderful outdoor scenes with.

You will find a list of supplies used to create this card.  Click on any of the items to go to my Canadian Online Store for more information.  If you choose to place an order, please use the Current Host Code located on the right side of my blog up near the top in a brightly coloured box.  I will send you a surprise at the end of the month as my Thank You.

Accented Blooms Card Share

When the new colours came out from Stampin' Up! in June, I was so excited to see so many new and returning favourites.  Highland Heather and Powder Pink go together really well.  So I decided to create a card using the Accented Blooms stamp set and these two colours.
I think this stamp set is versatile, there are so many things you can do with it.  And it co-ordinates with the Tailored Tag punch, too.

I used the Ruffled embossing folder on the background piece.  I haven't used it too much, but I so love the effect. It is also "ambidextrous", you can use either side of the embossed panel.

I stamped the image onto Whisper White cardstock using VersaMark ink and then White Embossing Powder. Once it cooled off, I sponged on some Powder Pink ink, making it darker around the image and lighter towards the top right corner.  I wrapped the Sheer White Ribbon around the Highland Heather layer twice, then tied a separate bow and attached it with a glue dot.  The sentiment was stamped with Memento, then punched out with the Tailored Tag punch.  I also punched one out of Highland Heather, cut it in half lengthwise and layered it behind the white punched piece.

You could use some Wink Of Stella Clear Glitter Pen on the flowers if you like, that would add some bling to the card.

Thanks for visiting today, I hope you have a wonderful week!

Cake Soiree Birthday

Every once in a while I have to create a card that is mostly white with a pop of colour.  Along my card making career I have had several Demonstrators who have provided me with lots and lots of inspiration.  This card was created by Amy Koenders and it is so beautiful I had to make it.  Then we created it in my Wednesday morning Sunshine Seniors Club class.

All the layers and textures on this card show the cake and it's plate off to perfection, don't you think?
The cardfront is embossed with one of the Petal Pair embossing folders. The cake is stamped on Powder Pink cardstock in versamark, then I used silver embossing powder on it.  The flowers are coloured with Stampin' Write Markers - Berry Burst, Powder Pink and Old Olive.

The plate and bow are die cut out of Silver Foil paper to add some bling, then a piece of Silver Baker's Twine is wrapped around the card and tied in a bow.

Please click on any of the images in the supply list below to go to my Canadian Online Store.  If you decide to place an order, I would be honoured if you did it through me and used my Current Host Code located on the right side of my blog up near the top in a brightly coloured box.  I will send you a surprise at the end of the month as my Thank You!

No Line Watercoloring Video Share

There are so many techniques out and about to colour any image you want to stamp. This technique is a great one, that ends up with a softer coloured image.

I hope you enjoy watching this video, and then give the No Line Watercoloring Technique a try. It will work with any image at all.

Animal Outing and Momma Kangaroo

The Kangaroo image in the new Animal Outing stamp set is so "stinking" cute!  And she has an even cuter panda in her pocket.

All the images in this set are adorable, and you can make all different cards from them.  Birthday, Baby, Welcome, New House, etc.

 I love this pattern from the Share What You Love designer paper, doesn't it look like "footprints"?  I used some Champagne Foil and ran it through the big shot with the Petal Burst embossing folder.  A bit of Red Solid Ribbon finishes it off.

The Kangaroo and her "baby" are coloured with Stampin' Blends - Crumb Cake and Smoky Slate.  I used the Bronze one for her nose.

A list of supplies can be found below my signature.  Click on any of them to go to my online store for more information.  When placing an online order, please use the Current Host Code - located on the right side of my blog up near the top - and I will send you a surprise at the end of the month.
