Marbling Technique and Final Day

 
Hello Friends, 
 
See the Marbling Technique in action with Stampin' Up! trainer, Donna.  Create cool marbled effects for card backs, embellishments, and more using shaving cream and Classic Stampin' Ink Refills!
 
Love Tutorials?   Be sure to stop back next week.  I'm in my studio today, recording a Graduation Cap Fancy Fold Tutorial.  It's a remake of a popular tutorial that I did a few years ago with the diagonal plate.  We no longer sell the diagonal plate, so I thought that I would show you how to make the Graduation Cap Fancy Fold Card with just your Stampin' Trimmer.  How many Graduation Parties will you be attending this year?
Ink Refills
 Ink Refills are a must in every craft room.  Keep you ink pad well inked, then use them for techniques like Marbling, Watercoloring and Emboss Resist.  Purchase them in separately or in sets to save even more money.  See them all here.

Comfort & Healing and Heart Hope

Comfort & Healing and Heart Hope

 

Hello Friends,

My heart filled with dread recently when I found out that my mother was diagnosed with AFib (an irregular heart beat that can be felt as a fluttering or thumping in your chest).  In a nutshell, the major risk with AFib is a stroke.  Mom has a little dog named Bella, so I thought that it would be appropriate to make her a card with the Bella & Friends stamp set.  But my card focus is  Comfort & Healing and Heart Hope.

 

Bella & Friends Stampin' Up!

 Tips and Tricks

 I spent a couple of minutes fussy cutting my dog, so that I could frame her with hope and a heart which a die cuts from the Sunshine Wishes Thinlits Dies set.  I love that set!  There's just something really playful about the swirly, whirly dies.

The bold and happy Cucumber Crush looks so fabulous with the softer blue and yellow.  I'm going to miss Cucumber Crush.  It's a 2015-2017 In Color, which means that its days are numbered.  The Stampin' Up! Retirement list is schedule to come out on April 10 which means Bye, Bye Cucumber Crush and its friends Mint Macaron, Delightful Dijon, Watermelon Wonder and Tip Top Top.  The matching washi tape is from the Affectionately Yours package.

For a the look of sunshine, I splashed a bit of So Saffron behind my Comfort and Healing sentiment (Flourishing Phrases stamp set) and sprinkled just a little bit more with a splatter stamp from the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set.

Sunshine Wishes

Coloring Tips

Don't be afraid to mix mediums when coloring.  I colored Bella with Watercolor Pencils and a Blender Pens, so that her fur looks soft and cuddly.   But I wanted her collar to be a little bolder and brighter.  That's where markers take over.  The Cucumber Crush marker compliments the Cucumber Crush Stitched Circle and the Affectionately Yours Washi Tape.

Handmade Card

 I carried the Sunshine Wishes and the Flourishing Phrases through to the inside of my card to let Mom know that I love her and think about her more often than I say.

Color Throwdown

Color Challenge

Color Challenges are a good jumping off point if you find yourself stuck in your card making endeavors.   Today's color challenge of light yellow, blue and green is from Color Throwdown.   I chose So Saffron, Soft Sky and Cucumber Crush.
