TURN YOUR EMBOSSING FOLDER INTO A WATERCOLOR PALETTE - A SHAMELESS CASE

 

Hello, Stampers!

    Isn't this undersea watercolor gorgeous?  I did create the cards shown here, but full credit must be given to Nadine at https://NadineKreativ.de.  Nadine is a talented Stampin' Up! demo in Germany. You can find her on Instagram, Pinterest and YouTube.  I've shown a very similar version below - the only difference being that I spritzed it with Lindy's Magicals powder (mixed with water) in Hydrangea Blue.

    Keep reading for the instructions and supplies - fewer than you might think!

FRIENDS ARE LIKE SEASHELLS ON STENCILED GEL PRESS BACKGROUND


 HOST CODE:  DSZY4PYG
Hey, Stampers - 
    I used a gel press, acrylic paints and stencil for this undersea-like background.  It works beautifully with SU's Friends Are Like Seashells Bundle, which will still be available in the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog.

ART GALLERY ON STENCIL PASTE X 2

 



HOST CODE:  DSZY4PYG
Hello, Stampers!
    I do love the Art Gallery Bundle - it is SO easy to work with.  I created the raggedy background for these cards with SU embossing paste and a stencil by Sugar Pea Designs on Seaside Spray card stock.  Any of our SU background stencils would look great, too - I just wanted some texture. The large "hugs" on the bottom card is by Honey Bee Stamps.

THESE STITCHED TRIANGLES GLIMMER . . .

Hi, Stampers!

    As some of you know, I love abstract backgrounds (and sparkle) and have been playing with abstract backgrounds using a gel press. But then, I came across this post on Pinterest by "stampitupwithjaimie" and HAD to order the die set:

HEY CHICK and HEY BIRTHDAY CHICK - Such fun bundles to play with!


 Hello, Stampers!

    It's been a while.  I just love the Hey Chick and Hey Birthday Chick Bundles.  They're so easy to use separately or to combine elements from each.  Below are are a few details and the supplies for this card.

    All of my die cuts were stamped onto Shimmery White CS, my favorite for focal points.  I love the subtle sparkle and it works so well with Blends and Markers.

    The DSP I used are Paper Blooms and Oh So Ombre.  The Ombre piece is 2-3/4 x 4.

Happy Stampin’!
