Stampin 'Up! Dragonfly Dreams and An Experiment!

Hey there! First I'm sharing the card we made at OnStage last November with Dragonfly Dreams and Inside the Lines Designer Paper:

Stampin_up_inside_the_lines_dragonfly_carolpaynestamps4

We cut a piece of Inside the Lines with a paper cutter and colored with Watercolor Pencils.

We stapled Basic Black Solid Baker's Twine to the strip, tied a bow, and adhered to 5/8" Burlap Ribbon. "Thanks", omitted from the sentiment by inking with a Basic Black marker, provided the greeting.

For my experiment card I colored  Inside the Lines Designer Paper with Melon Mambo, Old Olive, and Daffodil Delight Watercolor Pencils, then smoothed  with a Blender Pen.

My experiment came about after I colored the vellum-cut dragonfly with a Melon Mambo Stampin' Write Marker. The marker ink takes a long time to dry, so I sprinkled with Dazzling Diamonds Glitter.

I consider this a failed experiment because:

  1. As the marker ink dried, the glitter is started flaking off.
  2. The glitter prevented the Rhinestone from sticking well.

Conclusion:

Glitter won't stick to marker  (or any water-based dye) ink.

 This is one of many things that's great about stamping:  you can play with ideas; some work fantastically, and some don't, but it's ALL FUN!

Stampin' Up! Sunday Swap Day!

Hey there! It's time for Sunday Swap Day!

First, Carol Slack used the Inlaid Embossing technique with the Flourish Thinlets and the Flourishing Phrases stamps. She cut a mask with the Flourish Thinlets to sponge Sweet Sugarplum ink on the white  layer before adhering the cut-out Rich Razzleberry flourish. Then she  embossed  everything with the Elegant Dots folder.

Inside is more sponging with the mask and a Flourishing Phrases sentiment. Lovely!

Next, Jan Rodrian combined Wild About Flowers and Thoughts & Prayers with the "using a clear block as a stamp" technique:

Th Reflection technique with  Lovely As a Tree arrived with no creator name.

Stampin_up_lovely_as_a_tree_carolpaynestamps1

Expertly stamped, masked, sponged, and glittered.

Katy Simecka embossed Lovely as a Tree on Copper Foil, then mounted on a sponged piece of This Christmas Designer paper. Classy!

Finally, Karen Kurz inked directly on the Woodland folder with classic inks and with Versamark before embossing with the Big Shot and then heat embossing the tree trunks with white powder. The sentiment from Tin of Cards balances well with the stamped critter from Foxy Friends.

Stampin' Up! Sweet Sugarplum Cool Treats!

Hey there! Today I'm sharing another card using the Cool Treats/Frozen Treats Bundle, but this time I used the Playful Palette Designer Paper Stack to determine my colors!

Stampin_up_cool_treats_carolpaynestamps1

 Sweet Sugarplum card base, Basic Black, Playful Palette Designer Series Paper Stack, Blushing Bride, Sweet Sugarplum, Early Espresso, and Crumb Cake!

Stampin_up_cool_treats_carolpaynestamps2

 I stamped Sweet Sugarplum swirls on the Blushing Bride soft-serve ice cream, and added Clear Wink of Stella for cold shimmery goodness!

Stampin_up_cool_treats_carolpaynestamps5

 I used the same layout as yesterday's Cool Treats card, but the Sweet Sugarplum colors look more like sherbet! The Playful Palette Designer Series Paper Stack has a coordinating set of washi tape that I used on the inside.
