WATER, WATER EVERYWHERE.... STAMPIN' UP! SAILING HOME, A LITTLE BRUSHO "ART PIECE"

Hi, Stampers!
    Playing around again with this easy brushing Brusho technique (see my May 4 post).  This time I added some extra water droplets from my Aqua Painter for a little more interest.  Don't be afraid to experiment - try it, you'll love it!


Happy Stampin’!

Details
     The base is a vertical A2 card of Whisper White Thick CS, and the mat layer is also WW Thick, cut with the largest of the Stitched Rectangle dies. My "art piece" is 2-3/4 x 3-3/4 Watercolor Paper.
     I sprinkled Prussian Blue and Yellow Brusho onto the Watercolor Paper and spritzed with water and brushed it with my Aqua Painter, blending the colors a little in the middle.  I then added droplets of water from my Aqua Painter here and there, dabbed off a little excess with a napkin, and let dry.
     The sailboat and birds are stamped in Night of Navy, using my Stamparatus, in case I had to re-stamp.  When I made sure the stamped images were dry, I attached the watercolored layer to the Stitched Rectangle piece with Fast Fuse all the way around the outside and a few stripes in the middle, to be sure it would lay flat.  The "stitched mat" is attached to the card front with Foam Adhesive Strips.
    I  left room for a sentiment if I decide to add one down the road.   I stamped the smaller sailboat on the inside of the card, and done!

CREATE ONE, GET ONE! DOUBLE DUTY DELIGHTFULLY DETAILED SPECIALTY DSP - May Stamp Camp

Hi, Stampers!
     More from my May DSP-focused Stamp Camp.  We turned our Delightfully Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty DSP into a stencil!  The key to not tearing this delicate open-work design is to pounce the color on with your sponge, don't swirl or go back and forth, like we usually do.  There are two advantages to this technique of sponging:  this background looks like it was spritzed and the other, I'll show you later, so be sure to "Read more..."


Happy Stampin’!

Measurements

Pineapple Punch CS – 5-1/2 x 8-1/2, scored at 4-1/4; 2 pieces Whisper White CS - 4 x 5-1/4 OR die cut one piece for the front with largest of Stitched Rectangles Dies; Bermuda Bay (or any color) scrap + a scrap of Basic Black to die cut “Happy”; roughly 6x6 piece of Delightfully Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty DSP

Instructions
  • Using Washi tape or other removable tape, tape a WW layer to scrap sheet of paper or a Silicone Mat and lay 6x6 piece of Delightfully Detailed DSP (from an all-over pattern sheet) over the top of the WW piece and add a couple of pieces of tape to that, as well.
  • Ink a sponge with Melon Mambo, for example, and pounce sponge onto DSP/WW layers in a few random locations; then move on to remainder of colors you choose or, if desired, use just one color. We used Melon Mambo, Pineapple Punch, Lemon Lime Twist (or Granny Apple Green), Bermuda Bay and Highland Heather.
  • Remove "stencil," but don't discard.  Sponge edges of WW if desired and adhere to Pineapple Punch card base.
  • Die cut a Happy sentiment from Bermuda Bay CS and a second from Black CS and layer together, offsetting Black a little, and adhere to card front with bottom of word approx. 1” from bottom of base and to the right of center.  Use glue dots or liquid glue - sparingly.
  • Add desired additional word stamped directly or on a strip of WW or small label to complete card front, add a decorated WW piece to inside of card and that’s it!

STAMPIN' UP!'s HAPPY TAILS for Birthday (SNEAK PEEK) - April Stamp Camp - RGB CODES

Hello, Stampers!
     I will be hosting Stamp Camp next Saturday, April 13, at 10 AM, here in Mooresville, IN.  I you are local (including Indianapolis) and would like to join us, let me know by the end of the day, Monday (April 8).  Now, on to this card.
      You know, sometimes we are not thrilled about an upcoming birthday - the older we get, especially - been there, done that.  I've mentioned before, that I've been starting to print my own, original  sentiments for the inside of a card.  So, we will use one of my original sentiments for this Happy Tails, "not so thrilled to be having a birthday" card.
     
     TIP:  Did you know that you can use color codes to match SU! colors when creating a document or online?   After over 10 years as a Demonstrator, I finally found out about it - I never asked - who knew?  They are called RGB/HEX codes - and numbers correspond to each color. HEX for online use and RGB for MSWord or other software.  A generous, talented demo, Marie Shaughnessy (www.mariestamps.com), created a chart in 2018.  I can enter the codes in my MS Word custom color function.  Go to my blog or if you're already there, click "read more" to see the details.  FREE Project Sheet available by email.

Happy Stampin’!

FRESHLY MADE SKETCHES #373



Hi, Stampers!
     Above is my entry for FMS #373, which you can see below.  95% of what I used to make this card are favorite retired SU! In-Colors and Washi Tape or non-SU! (the stamps are from the Taylored Expressions Grumplings collection).  Of course, you could use any stamps and colors, as you will see from the Design Team's and other samples when you head on over to Freshly Made Sketches - just click my card or the Sketch below to get there.
     I did use one of the 13 new Stampin' Up! Stitched Rectangle Framelits Dies for my focal point (148551 $35).

Happy Stampin’!
