JULY 2020 STAMP CAMP - WHALE DONE SLIDER PEEK-A-BOO

 



Hey, Stampers!
    These peek-a-boo sliders are so fun and really easy - just scoring and adhesive in the right spots to get the slider.  Notice that what is inside the window on the inside of the card is different than what you would expect looking at the outside!  ;-)  Leave a Comment or email me and I can email printable instructions to you.  You can also watch an excellent tutorial on Jennifer McGuire's YouTube channel under the heading "Peek-a-Boo Cards," where she also provides a few helpful tips to keep your card "moving."

JULY 2020 STAMP CAMP - STRAIGHT UP FUN!

 

Hi, Stampers!

    The Whiskey Business set is fun to play with and has such fun sentiments.  My photo, unfortunately, doesn't show the Cinnamon Cider background as rich as this color really is.  Here are the details.

    The card base is Very Vanilla Thick CS, with a Cinnamon Cider 5-1/4 x 4 layer embossed with the Old World Paper 3D Embossing Folder.  The brick-look overlay is a 3 x 3-3/4 piece from the In Good Taste DSP. The decanter is stamped on a 3" Shimmery White die-cut circle and the glass was fussy-cut.  The whiskey was colored with a combination of Stampin' Blends and marker, and the top was colored with Copper Delicata inkusing a Blender Pen.  The sentiment is stamped on a 3/4" scrap of the DSP and the ends punched with the Lovely Labels Pick a Punch.

JULY 2020 STAMP CAMP - COMFORT & HOPE WATERCOLOR WASH

 

Hi, Stampers!

    Comfort & Hope is one of the sets new to the Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog.  The focal point is Watercolor Cardstock 3 x 3-3/4, mounted on Dimensionals, washed with Flirty Flamingo using Aqua Painter/Water Pen and the edges sponged.  The stamped circles are stamped with Gold Glitz Delicata ink and the woven-look background is stamped in Crumb Cake.  The leaves (fussy-cut) and sentiment are stamped in one of the new In Colors, Misty Moonlight.

    The card base is Very Vanilla Thick CS and is embossed with the retired Coastal Weave embossing folder part of the way up and accented by a 1/4" strip of Gold Foil.

    The accents are Gold Glitter Enamel Dots and a Gold Hoop.         

Happy Stampin’!

JULY 2020 STAMP CAMP - DAISY LANE AWASH IN PRETTY PEACOCK AND ROCOCO ROSE

 


Hello, Stampers!

These were the options for one of my July stamp camp projects.  Pretty simple.  All of the white areas are Shimmery White CS.  The color wash background is 4-1/4 x 3-1/2, the sentiment "tag" is 1" and the Champagne accent strip is 1/4."  We used Copper Trim on the Pretty Peacock version.  All stamping and the wash are in Pretty Peacock and Rococo Rose, are the card bases.  The daisies are each one full strength layer and one layer stamped off.  A good card to have in your stash for any occasion.  Products are below.

Happy Stampin’!

STAMPIN' UP! POSITIVE THOUGHTS in PINK & GRAY



July host code

Hello, Stampers!

Positive Thoughts is a new-to-me set that was carried over into the 2020 Annual Catalog.  There are coordinating dies, Nature's Thoughts, but they were not carried over as a bundle.  Yes, the fancy "stitched" rectangle is included in the dies!  I used Shimmery White CS for that piece and the die cut flower.

EXPERIMENTING WITH ALCOHOL LIFT INK



Hi, Stampers!
     It has been quite some time since I've posted.  Long story short, two weeks ago I severely twisted my right side lower back and pelvis and was pretty much flat for a week and could not sit in a chair or at my laptop or stamping desk at all.  It's been a slow process, lots of PT.  Went grocery shopping for the first time today!
     Anyway, I've been dabbling in alcohol inks before all this happened (not very good at it) and after watching a video or 12 (LOL) about lift inks, I wanted to try it.  I used a die from Smooth Sailing to make a stencil for the kelp and seaweed on the left, a couple of little grasses from High Tide, and coral, seahorse, jelly fish, etc. from the Whale Done set.  The sentiment is "Deeper than the ocean...," by Lavinia Stamps.
