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’!

RHODE ISLAND RED HEY BIRTHDAY CHICK

 

HOST CODE:  2J4TB4B6
Hi, Stampers!
    Here's another Hey Birthday/Hey, Chick Bundles combo card for you.  The idea for the stacked feed sacks is from Debbie Henderson, Debbiesdesigns blog.  
    I love this Rhode Island Red ready to celebrate your birthday.  She is colored with Light and Dark Cajun Craze Stampin' Blends and a little Wink of Stella on her wings, tail, etc.  I sponged a little Granny Apple Green at the bottom of my 3x4 piece of Oh So Ombre DSP (FREE with a $50 order during SAB - which, BTW, ends in just a couple of days).  I used Crumb Cake and Sahara Sand CS for the sacks.
    Click below for more colors and supplies.

Happy Stampin’!

HEY, BIRTHDAY CHICK - HELP ME DOWN! - SALE-A-BRATION ENDS 2/28!


 Hello, Stampers!

    This tubby little hen is yelling for help!  One balloon would have been enough and now she's out of control.  ;-)  

    I've used elements from both Chick Bundles for this birthday notecard, as you will see below when you see the inside!  I had fun playing with the different dies.  All of my stamped images are on Shimmery White CS.  You'll have to click below and go to my blog to see more, colors, etc.  

Happy Stampin’!
