Beautiful Promenade Card & Gift Box Set

I was captivated by the imagery in the Beautiful Promenade Bundle. After experimenting with it, I know why. The artistic images provide so many opportunities for a collage look, I just LOVE it! All products Stampin' Up!


I followed the directions on THIS video from Pootles in the UK to make my box. Easy peasy! The paper for the sliding wrap around my box measures 2 inches by 8 inches. Once embossed with the Garden Trellis Embossing Folder, it is quite pliable and I didn't even have to score it before I wrapped it and secured it on the underneath side of the box. 


I stamped all images before using the embossing folder. I used Bermuda Bay Ink stamped on Coastal Cabana Cardstock for the die cut flower images. (so glad they brought that color back!) The "diamond" shapes were stamped using first, second and third generation images inked with Coastal Cabana. Old Olive was used for the leaf image. Even though it is a little hard to see, there is a punched circle of vellum under each flower and bit of sequin trim. 


Look at all of you receive with the bundle!! It even has an envelope liner die, a "doily" type die and a tag topper die. I haven't had the chance to use those three items yet, but know I will be able to used them with SO much more than just this stamp set. They are most certainly classic must haves that will end up being basics that never leave my workspace!

Happy 4th of July!

Happy Independence Day! What is it they say about "best laid plans"?  For the last several years, I have attempted to think outside the box for my July 4th card. Not sure if it was my menopause brain or just being tired from my day job, but I couldn't come up with anything shiny new this year that was my kind of "different". With that said, I thought I would post some of my favorites from the last several years. A few even have video tutorials! Unless noted, all products are Stampin' Up!

The card below has been my most pinned on Pinterest. I literally woke up one morning thinking about the die cuts from Swirly Scribbles making a wavy flag. It tickles me every time I see someone CASE this card!

 
The one below was one I made after I came up with my tie-dye technique using coffee filters. 


Click HERE to see the video for the above card. There is also a link below that video for my original tie-dye backgrounds. So great for summer!

I didn't use stamps for the card below. But...I LOVE how it turned out. This card was made using my "not your Mother's shaving cream technique". If you haven't seen my less messy way to do the shaving cream technique, hop on over to the video below. 


Click HERE for my version of the shaving cream technique. This video will show you technique for the background, but isn't the actual card. I basically masked the navy & red areas to achieve this look using the technique in the video.

Contemporary Florals and Big News!

Good morning! Over the last few days I've been playing a bit with the new stamp set called Beautiful Promenade. These are just a couple of cards I came up with. All products Stampin' Up!


The top layer is watercolor paper. The one with the Gorgeous Grape flowers didn't necessarily need watercolor paper, but I already had it cut so I used it. For these cards, I swiped Versamark randomly and embossed the swipes with gold embossing powder. I stamped the base flower with color on both of them (Bermuda Bay for one, Gorgeous Grape for the other), then over stamped the color images with Black Staz-On ink. The gold embossed areas "resist" the colored inks, but a bit sinks in to crevices. The Staz-On will stamp and dry "as stamped" on top of the embossed areas. The main difference in these cards is that I spritzed the flowers stamped with Bermuda Bay with a bit of water. I didn't spritz the one stamped with Gorgeous Grape. The black speckles are from the Waterfront stamp set.

Simply Summer

This summer heat makes me long for light and airy things. I just love the way the card below turned out. Unless noted, all products are Stampin' Up!




For the leafy details below: Using an Aqua Painter, I swished some water & Granny Apple Green and Calypso Coral reinker on some scraps of watercolor paper I had on hand, then cut the larger of the 2 leaves using dies from the Tropical Chic Bundle. The little vellum leaves were cut with the Leaf Punch. (Complete supply list below)




I am IN LOVE with all of the possibilities the dies offer from the Stitched All Around Bundle. Just look at how the detail of the edging on the black circle above compliments the wonky striping on the Tropical Escape Designer Series Paper! The die set also includes 2 dies that help you create stitched edgings that look like a sewing machine did it. 

I had some left over white seam binding in my sewing box. I used the Granny Apple Green reinker mixed with a little water to dye it. After I dyed it, I scrunched it up to wring it out and left it to dry that way. The little dots behind all of the details were stamped with one of the stamps from the Waterfront stamp set. (If you don't own it, you MUST!)



If you are viewing this in an email, hop on over to my blog to see the supply list below.
