Rose Wonder & Timeless Textures

Rose Wonder & Timeless Texture

Look what happens when you combine the Rose Wonder Bundle with the Timeless Textures stamp set.   I really love the eclectic look of the Timeless Textures stamps and the So Saffron Card Stock on the inside helps smooth out my card base after watercoloring.  It's a win, win!

Rose Wonder Card

 I'm really diggin' the color wash look under the Rose Garden cut out  and it is quick and easy to do.  My card base is Shimmery White Card Stock which add a little shimmer and stands up to light water techniques.  I simply painted swatches of Mint Macaron and So Saffron across my card front.  I wasn't particularly concerned about getting an exact match up with  my rose, because I was after an artsy look.  After adhering my Rose, I went back and applied Wink of Stella to add a bit more shine.   Learn More About how to use Wink of Stella and the Rose Wonder Bundle Here

Honeycomb Happiness Gone Neapolitan

Honeycomb Happiness Stamp Set

Love the yummy Neapolitan look with the sweet ice cream cone from the Honeycomb Happiness stamp set.   Vanilla, Strawberry and Chocolate, it even sounds yummy.  For the fun Polka-Dot and Stripes layers, I used the Large Polka Dot Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and Birthday Bouquet Designer Series Paper.  Yep, today's card is all sweetness and light.

Watercoloring Ice Cream Cone

To create my stacked ice cream cone, I stamped it 4 times and fussy cut the tops of 3.  With my aqua painter and Soft Suede Ink, I splashed just a touch of color across my cone.

 

Honeycomb Happiness Glassine Gift Bag

 We all adore the little chick from the Honeycomb Happiness stamp set, but today I thought that I would make you fall in love with the Ice Cream Cone too.  And ...did you know that you can receive the Honeycomb Happiness stamp set free with a $50 purchase?  Now that stacks up to be a sa..weet deal!   FYI, you can find out more about the You're So Sweet Gift Bag here

Card Making Basics

Hello Sunshine Card

Today, let's talk about Card Making Basics.

Stampin' Trimmer

Every Craft Room needs a Paper Cutter.  The Stampin' Trimmer is the paper trimmer that all other paper trimmers want to be! This lightweight, portable trimmer is specially designed to make stable and straight cuts and it scores too.  Find Out More Here

Cutting & Scoring Card Bases

A standard size card measures 4-1/4" x 5-1/2".  Cut an 8-1/2" x 11" piece of card stock in half and you have a card base.  You can use either the Hamburger fold  (5-1/2" x 8-1/2") or the Hot Dog Fold (4-1/4" x 11").  Score the Hamburger Folder at 4-1/4".  Score the Hot Dog Fold at 5-1/2".

Paper

Every Card starts with paper.  Stampin' Up! offers high-quality card stock and designer series paper-all color coordinated to work beautifully together.  Don't forget the envelopes.  See the supply list at the bottom of this post for a complete list of today's supplies.

Ink

 Almost every card also needs Ink.  Again Stampin' Up! makes coordination a breeze.

Note: For today's card I used VersaMark Ink because I was heat embossing.

Wood Stamps  Clear Stamps  Photopolymer

The final Card Making Basic is Stamps.  Stampin' Up! offers 3 types of stamps that are all made in the United States.

Classic Rubber Wood Mount stamps include farmed Maple Wood Blocks.  Mount them once and they are ready to go.

Classic Rubber Clear Mount Stamps are a compact set of stamps that you mount on reusable clear Blocks.

Photopolymer Stamps are transparent stamps that make it easy to perfectly line up images and create unique effects.  Mount them on reusable Clear Blocks.

For today's card I used the Free Sale-a-Bration stamp set-Hello which Limited-Time stamp set that will only be available through February 15.  During Sale-a-Bration you can choose free product with every $50 you Spend.  January 5-March 31

Tinkerbell

Heat Embossing is the magical Stamping Technique that even a beginner can do.

 

Hello

One thing is for sure, Heat Embossing never looses its magical appeal.  I love watching the powder melt into a smooth, sleek stamped image.  Here's an old Heat Embossing Video Tutorial .  Looks like it's time to make a new Heat Embossing Video Tutorial (This is one of my earlier videos and a little embarrassing), but you will get the idea.  

Freshly Made Sketches

Card Sketches are also a great aid in card making.  Today's Sketch came from Freshly Made Sketches.

Color Throwdown

Color Challenges are another great way to nudge your creativity.  Today's Challenge is compliments of Color Throwdown.
