Another Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Bold Botanicals Card

 Hello, again -     This is another of the four stamps included in the Bold Botanicals set by TH/Stampers Anonymous.  These stamps actually create the focal image and the background for the image.  I used the following to create this card:     SU!

Deckled Edge Rectangles Dies      Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous - Bold Botanicals      Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous - Tiles, Circles Stencil (from Party Cat Mixed Media set)     Card-io Nature Quotes stamp set     Distress Oxide Inks - Peacock Feathers, Cracked Pistachio, Salty Ocean     Delicata Celestial Copper ink pad     Gold cord     Stampin' Sue

Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous - Bold Botanicals

 Hello, Everyone -     A few new stampin' "things" to play with.  The flower/background image is heat embossed on Fairy Hugs Craft Papers and the card background is also FH Craft Papers.  Here are the basic products I used for this card:     Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous - Bold Botanicals     Fairy Hugs Craft Papers - Rainbowdance     Versamark Ink, White embossing powder     Lavinia Stencil - Feather Leaf     A couple of different blues - Versafine Clair Ink Happy Stampin', Stampin' Sue


  Hello, Everyone -     I recently watched a YT video by Jennifer McGuire, where she made this type of colorful background.  Believe it or not, it is created with one stamp, called a Turnabout (by Concord & 9th).  The Turnabouts have been around for several years! This link, among several others, although mainly providing info on a "jig" which helps with using these stamps, also shows how to use the Turnabout stamps and great tips.   It takes a few preparation steps (you will need a Misti or Stamp-a-ma-Jog), but then you can go ahead and do several backgrounds and let your color ideas go wild.  Have fun!

 Hi, Stampin' Friends -     Yet another colorful "Bloom" dies card.  This time with a colorful, sponge stenciled background, as well.  This one is my favorite, so far - colors and patterns.  I added a little dimension with " Dimensionals under the leaf and the flower center.  I decided to stamp the sentiment on the front and leave the inside blank, except for a flower stamped on the inside from the retired Painted Harvest set by Stampin' Up!.     Supplies below.  Remember, stay curious!

 Hello, again -     I mentioned in my previous post that I love creating with color.  I also love textures!  The background on this Blossom card is a piece of brown corrugated paper packing material.  I used a bright gold ink pad, direct-to-paper to accentuate the raised areas and along the edges of my card base before adhering the corrugated piece - not easy to see on the photo.     The inside sentiment says:  "May the joy of simple things COLOR your life."  Supplies below. Remember, "Imagination has no age." Stampin' Sue  


  Hello, fellow stamping (and other) friends!     It's been so long since I posted anything here, I'm not sure I remember how to do it correctly.  But here goes.     As some of you know, I love color and working with color.  I came across lots of beautifully colored samples on Pinterest using these fairly new dies by Sizzix for Tim Holtz and, although I had tried  not to purchase any new stamping items before February, I couldn't resist - I'm too easily inspired - and I know many of you can relate.  Below is a list of the supplies I used for this card.  I'm planning to do a few more, for sure.     Remember, stay curious!     Stampin' Sue
