…meets Stampin’ Up! Embossing Paste.

Yes, you have read correctly, Stampin’ Up! now have the lovely & fun Embossing Paste.  I, 20170613_111258blog-insiefor 1, have been waiting a long time for this to happen.  Thank you so much Stampin’ Up!

Today’s card is one that we did at our Training Weekend.  We got to play with the Paste & also the gorgeous “Feather Together” Stamp Set.  Our card is straight from Page 176.  I will be honest & say I forgot to order the Decorative Masks, so had to go along with one that has retired, but it still gave us the result we were after.  You could also create your own Mask by using a Framelit or Thinlit.

We placed a small amount of Embossing Paste onto a plastic sleeve, added a couple of drops of the Lemon Lime Twist Ink Refill & mixed it with a Palette Knife.  You can add as much as you like to the Paste to give you more depth or go as light as you like for just a small tint.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

Hello There Swirly Bird

Today’s post is another from our Training weekend last month.  20170529_153743blog-inside

I’m a little bit happy with this card considering it has been cased from the new Catalogue but with a few changes.  I will say that it was going to start out as the card on Page 10 but then was changed at the last minute & I now the card on Page 171 (sort of).  Does that ever happen to you?

Don’t forget to use your Catalogues are a great source for ideas & inspiration.

We water washed a piece of Shimmery White Card with Sweet Sugarplum & Aqua Painter to get the background.  Seeing it in real life shows a lovely soft shinny background.

The shapes were die cut using the Swirly Scribbles Thinlits & adhered to the Card to make them look Faux Die Embossing.  Another use for your Framelits, Thinlits & Punches.

If you click on the link above the photo you will be able to download the Tutorial to create your own card.  I would love for you to share any cards you create using the tutorials.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

Cartwheels on the Beach

Heya Stampers,

The last weekend in May we had a team meeting where we played with new & carried over stamp sets, played with techniques & discussed our business, including being a 20170530_101827BLOG-INSIDEHobby Demo.

Over the next few days or weeks, I will share with you the cards we created.  I do hope you will like them, even better if you are inspired by seeing them.

First off the rank is my card using the gorgeous “Beautiful You” Stamp Set!  I call this card “Cartwheels on the Beach”.  I love how she looks like she doesn’t have a care in the world with the sun shinning down on her & nothing on her mind but enjoyment.

I’ve used our Watercolour Pencils to create the colours.  I especially love the sun shining through the sky.  I’m only sorry you can’t see all the pretty sparkle on the card from adding Clear Wink of Stella.

Don’t forget to click on the link below to grab your free tutorial.  Yes, Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators may use the tutorial for your classes but please it is not to be used for publication or money gain.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’
