Inky the Octopus

Hi!  Back today with the card that was demonstrated this past week on Tuesday with Teresa – my weekly Facebook Live demonstration.  This one features the Sea of Textures stamp set:

Octopus, Sea of Texture, Stampin' Up!, Masking

I used my big Post-It Notes to mask off the top and bottom of my Whisper White layer and sponge just the center with Mint Macaron and Coastal Cabana ink.  The seaweed and coral were stamped in Tranquil Tide ink.

The octopus is stamped in Blackberry Bliss ink and die cut with the coordinating framelit.  He is attached to the card using dimensionals.  A quick and cute card for your Saturday morning.

Here’s the video in case you’d like more details:

A Touch of Fall

Hi!  I am back today with one of the cards demonstrated on last night’s Tuesday with Teresa Facebook Live!

Flowers, Touches of Texture, Subtle, Fall, Stamipn' Up!, SU!

I am in mood for fall – as these last few days we’ve been under a heat index warning with temps in the 90’s and “feels like” nearing 100.   So, here is my take on a fall card using the Touches of Texture stamp set.

Do you see the pop of texture on the Vanilla card stock?  That is the Subtle Embossing Folder!  Isn’t it gorgeous?  I LOVE it!! It was hard to tell in the catalog what the result would be – so now you know!!    You can order yours in my store here.

Here is the video from last night:

The dimensions for the card stock:

Base: Soft Suede – 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ scored at 4 1/4″ and folded

Very Vanilla – 4″ x 5 1/4″

Sentiment Banner – Very Vanilla – 3/4″ x 2 3/4″, Soft Suede 7/8″ x 2 7/8″

I think I’m going to make a few more of these as I love how they turned out!

Ok, a few more days left for the Blended Seasons bundle and Watercolor Pencil Assortment #2 pack.   Don’t miss out!!

And – just 2 days left of the Bonus Days!!  There is still time for you to earn a $5 coupon with a $50 purchase! (US, prior to S/H and tax).

This is a Christmas version of the Birthday card I featured a few weeks ago.   The colors for his card are Garden Green and Cherry Cobbler.  The Watercolor Pencils and a Blender Pen were used to color the holly and hte bell.    While it is difficult to see in the picture, I did use the Clear Wink of Stella glitter pen on the bell and berries in the holly.   Here is a view of the back of the card:

This is where you’d write your message.

Fall, Elegance, Blended Seasons, Watercolors, Stampin' Up!, SU! Thank You

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE how this turned out!   The leaves are stamped in Versamark on Basic Black card stock and heat embossed with Gold Embossing Powder.  Watercolor Pencils are used to color the leaves – they are so vibrant on the Black cardstock.

Here’s the video:

The sentiment is heat embossed with Gold Embossing powder as well on a piece of Basic Black scrap cardstock and then die cut with the stitched frame from the Stitched Seasons coordinating die set.  I love the stitched look around the sentiment.  There are 3 different sizes of this shape in the set.

Lastly, I die cut the little swirls from Gold Foil paper to attach to the back of he sentiment frame.

The Basic Black stamped panel measures 4 x 5 1/4″ and is mounted on a piece of Gold Foil paper that measures 4 1/8 x 5 3/8″.  The base is Basic Black card stock measuring 5 1/2 x 8 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″ and folded in half.
