A Row Of Pens - a Masculine Birthday Card

Just 7 more sleeps and the new catalogue will be live and the stamp set I am using to make this card will be available to order.

If you're a crafter, like I am, you will love this set.

It also has some wonderful images to make a masculine card as can be seen by the card below.

The Emerald Envy card base was matted with Whisper White embossed with the new Oh My Stars embossing folder.  After added a 3/8" ruched Emerald Envy ribbon across the middle of the embossed Whisper White layer, it was attached to the card base.

The images of the 3 pens were stamped 3 times in a row and embossed with black embossing powder. They were then colored using ink pads and a blender pen - using the following colors:  Bermuda Bay, Crushed Curry, Emerald Envy, Basic Gray, Rich Razzelberry.

This art piece was matted with Emerald Envy card stock and adhered to the card front using dimensionals.

Supplies Used:
Stamp: Crafting Forever
Inks: Versa Mark, Bermuda Bay, Emerald Envy, Crushed Curry, Rich Razzelberry, Basic Gray
Papers: Emerald Envy, Whisper White, Bermuda Bay
Accessories: Oh My Stars Embossing Folder, Black Embossing Powder, Dimensionals, 3/8" Emerald Envy Ruched Ribbon, Modern Word Label Punch.

This Little Piggy - a catalogue sneakapeak

The new catalogue launches in less than a week!!  Are you getting excited yet??

The little piggy characters are so much fun - and besides they are adorable!!

Today I made 2 note cards featuring this cute little sty resident.

 The first one was a thank you note

I stamped the image on Whisper White card stock and coloured him using water color pencils and an aqua painter.  To apply the color I applied the aqua brush directly to the watercolor pencil and then to the image. When completed, the focal image was die cut using the layering circle framelits.

I separated the sentiment from the image and stamped it separately, placing the first part under the pig and the remainder on the card front,

All edges are sponged with Soft Suede ink

The Whisper White note card is layered with Tip Top Taupe envelope paper.

I had some crate paper left over from On Stage, which I cut  into strips and forming them into a fence

Supplies Used
Stamp:  This Little Piggy
Inks: Black Memento, Watercolor Pencils, Soft Suede
Papers: Whisper White note card, Crate Paper, Tip Top Taupe Envelope Paper
Accessories: Stitched shape framelits, dimensionals, blender pen

Picture Perfect Try Stampin' on Tuesday #323

For this week's challenge with Try Stampin' on Tuesday I used the Picture Perfect stamp set, namely the Hummingbird because the optional theme is Pretty as a picture.

The hummingbird was triple stamped using Basic Gray, Bermuda Bay , Real Red and Black Memento ink.  

The rose flowers were also triple stamped using Blushing Bride, Melon Mambo and Rose Red.  

The leaves I stamped with Pear Pizzazz, Old Olive and Always Artichoke.  The humming bird, the roses and the leaves were also fussy cut.

I cut a Very Vanilla art piece measuring 2 1/2 by 3 1/2", the background of which was stamped lightly with the Timeless Texture stamp set using Pear Pizzazz ink. It was matted with Rich Razzelberry card stock.  I first adhered the Roses and leaves, then added the hummingbird using dimensionals. Some Wink of Stella was applied to the bird.

The card base is Rich Razzelberry, layered with Very Vanilla cardstock.  On the upper part is one pattern of the Blooms & bliss DSP: the bottom part has the darker pattern of the same paper.

The art piece was adhered to the card front using dimensionals.

I placed a 2" piece of Winter Wonderland Vellum at an angle across the lower part and art piece of the card.  Instead of using a sentiment, I die cut the letter "M" using Mint Macaron glimmer paper and adhered it to a 1 1/4" very Vanilla circle.  This was matted with a Rich Razzelberry circle with dimensionals and then adhered to the vellum.

Supplies Used:
Stamps: Picture Perfect, Timeless Texture
Inks: Basic Gray, Bermuda Bay, Real red, Black Memento, Blushing Bride, Melon Mambo, Rose Red, Pear Pizzazz, Old Olive, Always Artichoke
Papers: Rich Razzelberry, Very Vanilla, Blooms & Bliss DSP, Winter Wonderland Vellum, Mint Macaron glimmer paper
Accessories: 1 1/4" circle punch, 1 3/8" circle punch, Timeless Type alpha junior dies, Wink of Stella, tiny pear, dimensionals

Now its your turn to create something.  When done, upload it to the Try Stampin' on Tuesday blog or the Facebook site.  Remember that you have 2 weeks to complete your project.
