SOMETHING SIMPLE WITH HAND-PENNED PETALS for Freshly Made Sketches Challenge FMS530


Hi, Stampers!

    This will be short because I need to complete my blog post so the link on Freshly Made Sketches will work!  The flowers from Hand-Penned Petals are stamped on a piece of Shimmery White CS cut 3 x 3-3/4.  I rounded the outside corners with the oldy but goody Large Corner Rounder Punch and the card base is Seaside Spray - I don't discard my retired CS and this color is one of my favorites!  The Happy Birthday greeting was cut with a die from Altenew.

Happy Stampin’!

SOMETHING DIFFERENT WITH WAVES OF INSPIRATION BUNDLE


 Hello, Stampers!

    I came across this template with the Waves of Inspiration on Pinterest, by SU! Demo Denita Wright (Australia).  Do you notice anything about the DSP strip?  Here's a close-up.

I LOVE SKYLINE IMAGES!

 

Hello, Stampers!

    It's been some time since I've posted here, but that doesn't mean I haven't been creating on a regular basis.  I'd rather create than post!

    I did want to share this super duper easy note card I created using New Horizons DSP and a non-SU! stamp.  Can you tell that this skyline is Indianapolis?  We'll imagine that the "water" is the White River.  ;-)  This is the back of the card.

                                        

    I saw this stamp by Simply Stampin at the Too Much Fun stamp/craft show in Danville, IN last month and had to have it. I cut the "Indianapolis" off so I could use it on the back. There are, of course, many other city skylines. When I received my New Horizons DSP the light bulb came on!  So, so quick and easy.  SU! products are below.

Happy Stampin’!

ONE BACKGROND DIE, TWO OHMBRE CARDS - Simply Potted Succulents

       

Hello, Stampers!

    I'm still here.  Just doing some other forms of papercrafting, gel press, acrylic paints, etc.  This idea is certainly nothing new and not original to me (as usual).  It's really easy peasy to create this 2 4 1 background with the background die from the Potted Succulents Dies set.

    First, die cut the background using Basic White or Shimmery White CS - you can use a bit larger piece and cut it down later.  Then, adhere your die-cut to another piece of Basic White or Shimmery CS with some Washi tape along a couple of edges.  Then the fun begins.

    Ink up one of your blending brushes with Pool Party Ink and brush in swirls at the bottom third (or top, doesn't really matter) of your die-cut, which is now a stencil!  Feel free to peek to be sure you have enough color laid down.  At the middle, ink up your brush with Bermuda Bay ink and add that color, overlapping to blend in with the Pool Party.  Last, ink up your brush with Pacific Point, apply and you're done!  Remove your "stencil."

GORGEOUS PANSY PATCH

 


Hi'ya, Stampers!

    This Pansy Patch card was inspired by a Jo Blackman video tutorial on masking.  You can find it here. Jo is a talented Stampin' Up! Demonstrator in the UK.  I switched the colors on my version and added the Gingham Gala DSP (retired).

    Lots of masking on this card but, remember, you can use them again.  Don't throw them away, even when they are filled with ink.  I hand-cut 3 of the solid image, smaller pansy and about 5 leaves.

SEA SHELLS WITH SUNNY STENCIL MASHUP

 


Hello, again, Stampers!

    Still playing with my stencils stash.  The stencil is called Sphere (Altenew).  I applied the color with blending brushes and sponges.  At the bottom is Crumb Cake, then Coastal Cabana as dark as I could get it, then I lightened up a little.  After that is Daffodil Delight and ultimately, Mango Melody.

SCENIC TRIANGLES


 Hello, Stampers!

    Let me start with credit to Kim Singdahlsen (joyfulcreationswithkim) for her card created based on a Freshly Made Sketches challenge.  So clever to imagine a mountain and lake scene composed of triangles.

    My lake and mountain triangles are cut from Shimmery White CS (of course) and blended with Balmy Blue, Blackberry Bliss and Gorgeous Grape, respectively.  The trees are Shaded Spruce and Evening Evergreen, as is the mat layer.  My "canvas" is just Basic White run through the Subtle 3D embossing folder once.
