Sand & Shells

Hi! Today I am continuing with my masked background shown last week – this time featuring the So Many Shells set.

Friendship, Shells, Beach, So Many Shells, Stampin' Up!, SU! Masking

For this card, I created a rectangular mask with the Stampin’ Trimmer.  The mask measured  3 3/4″ x 5″ and I measured in 3/4″ on the sides and 1″ in for the top and bottom.  The background was created by sponging Sahara Sand in the lower left corner followed by Soft Sky and ending with Marina Mist.

The shells are stamped with Crumb Cake for the more detailed shell and Blushing Bride for the 2nd step.  Wink of Stella Clear Glitter pen was used to color over the shells to give them a little sparkle.  The sentiment is stamped in Crumb Cake ink.

I do love this technique – and wanted to show it could be used for any type of card.  I hope you give it a try!

Make sure you stop back tomorrow – I’ll be hopping with the Top 10 from March’s International Project Highlights!  So excited!

Flowers and Sunset

Hi! Today I have a card that I demonstrated on this past Tuesday’s with Teresa Facebook Live.  The theme was masking using Die Cuts.

Flowers, Thinking of You, Wild About Flowers, Masking, Die Cuts, Stampin' Up!, SU!

I created a mask using an Oval Framelit and a piece of the white cardboard that is in the back of the Designer Series Packs of paper.  Then I lay that over my Whisper White cardstock and sponged my background using Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie and Old Olive ink pads.

The flowers are from Wild About Flowers and stamped in Basic Black Archival Ink.   The sentiment is from Heartfelt Blooms which is a Sale-A-Bration set which you can earn FREE by shopping in my on-line store.  But hurry!  This special ends March 31st and the set will no longer be available!

Sparkly Butterfly

Hi! Today I have a card for you that was inspired by Kylie Bertucci’s card here.

My version uses the Bold Butterfly detailed thinlet to create my mask for my background.  I sponged Watermelon Wonder over my mask.  The sentiment is from Flourishing Phrases – I just love the font in that set.  I added a bit of sparkle to my butterfly using the Wink of Stella Clear Glitter pen.  Here is a closer look at that:

Sunset Bird

Hi!  Welcome back!  Today I am playing along with this week’s Global Design Project Sketch Challenge – #GDP042  – using the new Best Birds bundle.

SU! Best Birds, SU! Layering Circles Framelits

I sponged the sunset by creating a circle mask the same size as my card front – makes it easy to line up and achieve the look I wanted.  The circle template is made using the largest circle in the Layering Circles framelits.  The bird and branch were first inked using markers directly on the stamp – and then shaded in using a blender pen and ink pads.  I like that I was able to get the details from the outline but still add muted color using the blender pen.

Hope you like it!

Rainbow Hearts

Hi & welcome!  I am Teresa Howe from Northboro, MA in the USA and I am playing along in Kylie Bertucci’s International Stampin’ Up! Blog Highlight!  The theme is Love.  I don’t live close to my family and thought this card lets them know I think of them often.

SU! Suite Sayings, Hearts Mask

I hadn’t had a chance to play with my heart mask too much, and thought this the perfect reason to break it out and play.  I tried a variety of colors – all pink, all red, a mix of both pink and red, and then decided to go bright and make a rainbow of hearts.  What do you think?

The sentiment is from the Suite Sayings set in the Occasions catalog and just perfect to let those near and dear to you how they make you feel. And while it doesn’t show too well in this picture, the Pacific Point Stitched satin ribbon is so shiny – I LOVE it!!

If you like my card, I hope you’ll vote for it on Kylie’s page here.  At the least, I hope you will hop over to Kylie’s and check out all the other great projects all made with Stampin’ Up! products and filled with tons of inspiration for you!

Thanks for stopping by!
