Happy Birthday Thinlits & Watercolor Pencils

Happy Monday!  I hope you had a nice weekend! It was extremely hot in my neck of the woods.  Thank goodness for air conditioning!

Today’s card is one that I almost didn’t post.  I made it about a month ago and several times I thought about sharing it and then changed my mind at the last minute.  After completing it I wished I had blended the colors more so I put it away.  But I’ve learned that just because I don’t care for something, it doesn’t mean that it won’t appeal to someone else! 

I placed color down on Shimmery White cardstock using the Bermuda Bay and Old Olive Watercolor pencils and then went over it all with the Aqua Painter.  I cut Happy Birthday out in Bermuda Bay, three times, and layered them on top of each other for dimension.  I gave it a finishing touch with several sparkly rhinestones. 

The Stampin’ Up! products I used to create my card are listed below for easy shopping.  If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask!

Lots of Love by Stampin’ Up!

Were you able to visit all of the blogs in the First Fridays Blog Hop yesterday?  If not, click HERE to see all of the projects made with bundles in the catalog.  Bundles always save you 10%!

Today’s card is another watercolor card made with Stampin’ Up! watercolor pencils (you can see the one I shared earlier in the week HERE).  Although the technique is the same, no two cards will look exactly the same.  That’s kind of fun, don’t you think?

The sentiment is from a new stamp set called Lots of Love.  I love the nice bold words, especially on a beautiful watercolor background.

If you have any questions about today’s card, please don’t hesitate to ask! Have a terrific weekend!

First Fridays Blog Hop – Happy Birthday Gorgeous Bundle

I’m so glad you’re here today because it’s time for the First Fridays Blog Hop! This month we’re each featuring a bundle, two products bundled together for a savings of 10%, and we’ll each have two projects for you!  The bundle I’m featuring is Happy Birthday Gorgeous.  This bundle features the stamp set Happy Birthday Gorgeous along with the Happy Birthday Thinlits Dies.

For quite some time now I’ve wanted Stampin’ Up! to carry a Happy Birthday Thinlit so I was pretty excited when these came out in the new catalog! They really are very fun to work with!  To give the words lots of dimension (and because it’s pretty difficult to add dimensionals to the back) I layer them.  Adding 2-5 layers really gives it great dimension (the first card has two layers).  

The inspiration for this card came from one I saw on Laura Bassen’s blog.  I did my own take on it using Stampin’ Up! products.  Using my Big Shot and Layering Circles Framelits, I cut a circle in the middle of a piece of Whisper White.  I wanted enough room on all sides of the circle so that when I sponged I wouldn’t get stray ink on my finished piece.  Let’s just say that I learned this trick the hard way.  The Stampin’ Up! colors I used were:  Pacific Point, Bermuda Bay, Tempting Turquoise and Lemon Lime Twist.  I simply moved my circle around and sponged color, overlapping colors as I went. 

To finish the card I applied the layered Happy Birthday and some Iridescent Sequins.  The inside of the card has the simple sentiment, Make a Wish, from the stamp set Happy Birthday Gorgeous!

My second card went in a completely different direction from what I had originally planned and the finished card happened quite by accident! Originally Happy Birthday was going to be layered onto a die cut in Whisper White but I wasn’t happy with the results.  After I cut Happy Birthday out of our beautiful Foil Frenzy Speciality Designer Series Paper and layered    it with four more in Crumb Cake, I set it down onto the card base and went, hmmmm, I think I like that!!

The sentiment “to you” is also from the set Happy Birthday Gorgeous as well as the one I used on the inside.

Our new mini Stampin’ Dimensionals were just PERFECT for the greeting on the Classic Label punch! 

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you’ll continue on the blog hop!  Davette is up next!

Hello Friend by Stampin’ Up!

If you love the look of watercoloring and beautiful vibrant color, this is the card for you.  And the best part?  It’s SUPER easy to create! 

Using my Stampin’ Up! watercolor pencils, I scribbled Melon Mambo, Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight and Bermuda Bay across my Shimmery White paper (don’t use Whisper White as it will pill when you apply water).  Next, I applied water to each color using an Aqua Painter and I tried to blend the colors that were right next to each other.  The colors come alive when you add water! 

I used my Misti (a non Stampin’ Up! tool) to stamp my hell0 because I wanted to be able to get a nice dark impression with my Memento black ink.  Both stamps (hello and friend) come from the stamp set Hello Friend which is a brand new stamp set! (In the next week I’ll be offering a To Go class using this set).

I finished it off with our Enamel Glitter Dots for a little bit of sparkle.  

I hope you give this a try and if you do, I’d LOVE for you to email me your creation! Or ask to join my Facebook group and post it over there! I’d love for you to join even if you don’t have a card to share.  Click here to join my Stamping with Tracy Facebook group!

Enjoy your day!

 Stamping Supplies To Make Today’s Card

Scalloped Tag Topper Punch Tags


Need a quick tag?  You’d be surprised how quick these are to make!  You can attach them to a gift with Baker’s Twine or use a glue dot to adhere them directly to a gift as I’ve done below.

The Scalloped Tag Topper Punch is what makes this tag so quick and easy to make! To begin, you want to start with a 2″ x 4″ piece of Whisper White cardstock which you’ll then insert into the punch.  Push down and you already have a tag! 

 

If you have trouble inserting the paper into the punch, trim the 2″ side, just a tad and it should slide in easily.

Attach a piece of Designer Series Paper that measures 2″ x 2-3/4″. I used Whole Lot of Lovely Designer Series Paper for all of my tags.

The sweet sentiment comes from the stamp set Grateful Garden and I used a variety of inks: Memento Ink (black), Pool Party and Tranquil Tide.  I used what I felt matched the paper best but I used Memento Ink for the majority of the tags.  I cut them out with the Stitched Shapes Framelits.  I love the faux stitching around the edges.  I added some rhinestones for a little bling!

I finished the tags off by threading ribbon at the top and tying it off with Whisper White Baker’s Twine.  I used Pool Party Shimmer Ribbon and Silver Metallic Edge Ribbon and again, used the one that I felt matched the paper the best.  

I am sending the Glitter Enamel Dots to several people.  I hope they enjoy the dots AND the tags!

Polished Stone Technique

Today I’d like to share a fun card using the Polished Stone Technique! But first, I want to mention the Paper Pumpkin Flash sale! It started last night and will continue until tonight at 11:59, Mountain Time.

Paper Pumpkin by Stampin’ Up! is a crafting subscription kit that delivers creativity to your door every month. Every kit includes an exclusive stamp set, ink spot, and embellishments to create a predesigned project. The monthly subscription is $19.95 per month but you can try one month for just $5.00!  It’s an incredible way to try Paper Pumpkin but this price only lasts until tonight! 

If you’d like to give Paper Pumpkin a try, click HERE and you’ll be able to easily sign up! If you love it, you’ll continue to receive a box of creativity each month.  If not, simply cancel.  Be sure to use the PROMO CODE:  ONEDAY0717.

Onto my card!  The Polished Stone technique is quite fun and very addicting!  You need just a few supplies:  reinkers (pictured below), rubbing alcohol, cotton balls and glossy cardstock, a new item in the catalog!  

Next, add rubbing alcohol to a cotton ball.  Add drops of reinker onto the cotton ball, I added four drops of each color (Bermuda Bay and Lemon Lime Twist). 

Next, take the cotton ball and pounce it all over the surface of the glossy cardstock.  Once you’ve done this all over the paper, take a clean cotton ball and dab over where you see puddles. OR you can forget this step.  It depends on the look you want but I did do this step.  Once it dries, you’ll have a beautiful, one of a kind, masterpiece! 

It’s really fun and once you start, you’ll want to experiment with different colors!  

The Card Layers

Bermuda Bay:  11″ x 4-1/4″   Scored @ 5-1/2″

Basic Black:  4″ x 5-1/4″

Pattern Party Decorative Masks Day 3

I’m back with another idea for using the new Pattern Party Decorative Masks! Included in this new product are 4 different masks.  Using the mask pictured below, I was able to apply Emerald Envy and Dapper Denim inks using a sponge dauber to make a quick and easy card.

The mask is on my grid paper and held down using blue Painters Tape, which can easily be removed after the color has been applied.


The sentiment comes from a new stamp set called Lots of Love (available in clear or wood mount).  It was stamped in Emerald Envy and sits on top of a piece of Dapper Denim that was cut out using the Layering Circles Framelits.  

I try never to use retired product on a card that you can’t purchase but I accidentally did that on this card with the heart embellishment. Fortunately our new Glitter Enamel Dots do come in Dapper Denim and would be a nice replacement.

All of the products I used to make my card are listed below. Ready to make a purchase?  Simply click on any of the pictures below and you’ll be taken to my Stampin’ Up! online store!
