SU Very Versailles Card

Hello and welcome! Have you ever noticed that there are certain stamp sets that get much less exposure than others but you’re not sure why?! For me, the Stampin’ Up! Very Versailles Stamp Set is one of these. I think it is absolutely beautiful but I never see many samples around on social media. Today I wanted to redress the balance a little bit!

Let’s make it…

The card base is created from Petal Pink cardstock. The card base is stamped with the frame/mirror image in Petal Pink ink. Next I cut a smaller layer of Highland Heather cardstock and an even smaller layer of Whisper White cardstock.

Onto the Whisper White cardstock layer, I have applied Petal Pink ink through one of the Pattern Party Decorative Masks using a Sponge Brayer. I have then stamped the script and foliage images in Highland Heather and Mint Macaron ink respectively.

I cut a notch out of the Whisper White layer using the 0.5″ Circle Punch before adhering it on to the Highland Heather layer using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I then punched a hole in the Highland Heather layer using a standard hole punch. Mint Macaron Twine is looped through the hole and secured in place using Silver Metallic Thread.

The sentiment is stamped in Versamark ink onto Highland Heather cardstock and heat embossed using White Stampin’ Emboss Powder. This is cut out using the Stitched Labels Dies and adhered to the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals. This final touch is provided by a few Petal Pink Basic Adhesive-Backed Sequins.

I love the way that this combination of subtle colours can make such a big impact!

Sailing Home Anniversary Card

Hello and welcome! I recently needed an Anniversary Card with a fresh, masculine feel. I decided to use the Stampin’ Up! Sailing Home Stamp Set and combine it with a bit of ‘random’ watercolouring! Here’s how it turned out…

If you would prefer to watch me make the card, simply scroll to the end of this blog post where you can watch my video tutorial.

Let’s make it…

The card base is created from Whisper White Thick cardstock and this is followed by a slightly smaller layer of Pacific Point cardstock. I have then cut a layer of Fluid 100 Watercolour Paper which will become the main card front.

A number of the images from the Sailing Home Stamp Set are stamped across the watercolour paper using Versamark ink. I have then heat embossed using White Stampin’ Emboss Powder. I did the same with the sentiment which is from the Stampin’ Up! Forever Blossoms Stamp Set.

I next applied water to the areas I wanted to colour using an Aqua Painter. I used three small Clear Acrylic Blocks as palettes for Night of Navy, Pacific Point and Balmy Blue ink. The ink was applied to the wet paper using an Aqua Painter. I also flicked the Aqua Painter to give a few splatters in the white space of the card front.

What do you think? I hope you like it!

Love What You Do Card

Today I wanted to share with you the cards I create as my swaps for the latest Stampin’ Up! Team Meeting I attended. The swap theme was Floral and I decided to use the Love What You Do Stamp Set because we sometimes forget the Annual Catalogue in the excitement of the Mini Catalogue and Sale-A-Bration. I love swapping inspiration at Team Meetings because you receive projects using products you don’t have and in styles different to your own. I keep all the swaps I receive to use for future inspiration and to show my customers.

Let’s make it…

The card base was created from Whisper White Thick cardstock. I then heat embossed the ‘It’s a Beautiful Day’ sentiment multiple times in gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder, directly onto the card base.

For the main card front, I cut a piece of Rich Razzleberry cardstock and a slightly smaller piece of Fluid 100 Watercolour Paper. I heat embossed the floral image in Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder onto the watercolour paper.

I wet the watercolour paper using an Aqua Painter and then used a Clear Block as a palette to apply Rich Razzleberry ink, also using the Aqua Painter, over and around the flower image. Once dry the watercolour paper was then layered onto the Rich Razzleberry cardstock and then onto the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

The final touch is provided with a few Gold Metallic Pearls.

Watercolouring is such an effective technique and it is deceptively simple to create a basic watercolour wash. Why not grab some Fluid 100 and give it a go yourself?
