Mediterranean Moments

We used the Mediterranean Moments stamp set at our Stampers Club yesterday and paired it with the Beautiful You stamp set.

The masking technique was used to introduce the image from Beautiful You.  Stamp the girl image onto a Sticky Note and cut it out.  Stamp the girl image onto the Whisper White card stock and then place your mat over that.  Ink up the image from Mediterranean Moments and stamp and there you have the girl strolling down the avenue.

Our base card stock is Calypso Coral with a mat of Peekaboo Peach.  I always find it very relaxing to color and it was so enjoyable adding the different colors with a blender pen to fill in the images.

Thanks for stopping by on this beautiful sunny day – it looks great outside but I’m sure it’s chilly with more cold weather coming by the end of the week.

Avant-Garden Black Magic

 

Avant-Garden is a sweet Sale-A-Bration stamp set and when I saw the Watercolor Pencils that have been brought back by Stampin’ Up!, I had to do the “pencil over” and black magic technique using these products.

The petals, stem and leaves from the set are stamped with White Craft ink on Basic Black card stock.  Be sure to let the craft ink dry and then color over the images with the Watercolor pencils.  The petals are colored with the Melon Mambo pencil and the leaves with Old Olive.   I used a White Gel pen (retired) to add the accent dots to create the black magic!

The sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes.

IMPORTANT NOTE ON THE WATERCOLOR PENCILS:  This has been such a popular item that it will not be orderable after January 26 (tomorrow!).  If you wish to order them, be sure to place your order by 11:00 p.m. PST.  When you do place your order, a pop up will come up to ask whether you wish to continue with the item as it will be backordered.

The pencils are fantastic with co-ordinating colors with our color collections, Real Red, Calypso Coral, Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight, Old Olive, Bermuda Bay, Pacific Point, Rich Razzleberry, Melon Mambo, Early Espresso, Basic Gray, Basic Black and Whisper White.  Item Number is 141709, $21 for the set.

Beautiful You

My friend, Carole, picked up her Beautiful You stamp set the other day and by the afternoon she had made several cards using this lovely stamp set from the Occasions Catalogue.

In this one she used one of the Lace Doilies, also from the Occasions Catalogue, as an accent piece behind the image.


Another beautiful one!

Sale-A-Bration So Very Much

Sale-A-Bration is in full swing and there are so many delightful items to choose from in this year’s brochure!  Here’s one of the first that I chose.

My card from the current Stampin’ Success magazine for Stampin’ Up! demonstrators.  I used Heavy Whisper White card stock for the base.   The Thank You image is stamped first in Melon Mambo and then I used the Stamp-A-Ma-Jig to stamp it in Black ink.  The second image is positioned slightly off from the Melon Mambo image which creates the shadow effect.  The card is finished with a strip of the Pop of Pink Specialty Designer Series Paper and a length of white twine.

Window Shopping Bundle

I held my Customer Appreciation event over the weekend and shared the Window Shopping Bundle with this make and take.

The card base is Heavy Whisper White.  The Whisper White layer is cut out with one of the Window Box framelits and a piece of Red Foil is adhered behind it.  We looped some of the Cherry Cobbler Metallic Thread behind the sentiment.  The sentiment from the Window Box set  is stamped on a piece of Whisper White cut 7/8″ x 4″  using Real Red classic ink and flagged on one end.  A tiny Red Foil heart was punched out with the tiny heart punch and completed the card.  The entire layer is popped up on the card base with Dimensionals.

What a fantastic bundle this is – the stamp set has 10 rubber stamps and the framlits includes a box framelit and several other pieces to make tags etc.  You can make boxes for birthdays, weddings etc.  A super bundle!

Each guest received a gift bag and that held some goodies.

There were some post it notes, Ghiradelli chocolates, Valentine M&M’s and a Stampin’ Up! accessory.

If you would like a copy of the Occasions Catalogue and the Sale-A-Bration brochure, please email me at dayanna@perfectevent.com for your copies.

The thaw has started and we will be having rainfall over the next few days to clear out the snow and ice that has been around for way too long!   It seems balmy at 2 degrees C – lol.

Thanks for stopping by and happy stamping!

2017 Occasions Catalogue and Sale-A-Bration – a Dragonfly Daydreams Card

The new Occasions Catalogue and Sale-A-Bration is now in full operation!   Once a year we have Sale–A-Bration, the best stamping time of the year, where you can earn an exclusive product with a purchase (not including taxes and shipping) at no charge!

I believe that the Dragonfly Dreams bundle will the be one of the very popular bundles in the Occasions Catalogue – but then there are so many fantastic bundles!!!

I thought I’d go back into the archives and use an old technique that is very versatile.  It’s the shaving cream technique (and I still have the original can of shaving cream that I purchased many, many years ago!).

I cut some Whisper White card stock (5 1/4″ x 4″) and spread out a piece of wax paper.  I sprayed some shaving cream onto the wax paper and then add several drops of Rich Razzleberry, Daffodil Delight and Pink Piroutte reinkers onto the shaving cream and then used a wooden stir stix to run it through the shaving cream and swirled it around.

shaving-creamI placed the Whisper White card stock on top of the shaving cream and pressed it lightly to pick up the shaving cream.  Using a chop stick, I then scraped off the excess.  There was so much shaving cream I was able to do two (actually I could have done abut half a dozen).

shaving-cream-samplesI trimmed the bottom piece down to 5″ x 3 3/4″ and then put it together for this card.

dragonfly-dreams-shaving-creamThe card base is Rich Razzleberry with a layer of Pink Pirouette.  I cut the dragonflies using Rich Razzleberry using Rich Razzleberry card stock and adhered it to the front of the card.  The sentiment from the set is stamped using Rich Razzleberry classic ink.  I added some shimmer onto the dragonflies with the clear Wink of Stella brush.

I have cut out more dragonflies on the other piece and will use it for some other cards.
