Stampin’ Up! Calming Camellia Whitewashed CAS

Good Tuesday morning my stamping friends. I hope you week has started out productive. We’re back to a full week again, no holidays for a bit.

Today’s card one of my team members Mary Deatherage made on a Facebook live video on Saturday. I forgot how much I like this technique and haven’t done it in a while. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Calming Camellia Cling Stamp Set for my card today. You can earn this set free by hosting a qualifying party or placing a qualifying order. I’d be happy to set up a host code for you and your friends. Interested? Ask me how. Contact me at creativestampingdesigns@gmail.com.

I played along with Double “D” Challenge ‘Blue & White’

I also played along with Aud Sentiments Challenge #290 ‘Anything Goes + A Sentiment

I started by stamping the large floral image from the Calming Camellia stamp set in Night of Navy Ink on a Misty Moonlight card front. I stamped the swirl image from the Calming Camellia stamp set in Night of Navy Ink below the floral image where I planned on putting the sentiment.

Using my Blender Pen, I added White Craft Ink just to the flower image making sure not to color the leaves. I adhered the card front to a Misty Moonlight card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Calming Camellia stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink and fussy cut it using my Paper Snips. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Calming Camellia stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the large floral image from the Calming Camellia stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink, stamping off on scrap paper twice, over the sentiment. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Misty Moonlight mat and then to the inside of the Misty Moonlight card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the large floral image from the Calming Camellia stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink on the envelope front and the swirl image on the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up A Little Lace Free As A Bird

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers.  Well the weekend is upon us, so hopefully some of you will have some time to relax and have fun.  I’m looking forward to getting together with some of my team members for a meeting and stamping time.

For today’s card I used another new bundle available NOW in the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog.  It’s the Stampin’ Up A Little Lace Bundle.  This new die is so elegant.  Take a look.

My card for today played along with the Watercooler Wednesday Challenge #224.  Here’s their challenge.

I started with a panel of Whisper White cardstock and ran it through my die cutting machine using the Stitched Lace Die.  I ran it through again using the edging die from the Stitched Lace Die to cut off about an inch from the bottom.

On the bottom of the Crumb Cake card base I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up A Little Lace Cling Stamp Set in Versamark Ink.  I immediately sprinkled it with my White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.  I stamped the small flower image from the A Little Lace stamp set in Versamark Ink on the bottom left of the card front and immediately sprinkled it with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.

I wanted to do a little of the White Wash Technique on the small flower, so using my Aqua Painter I colored the flower in with the Whisper White Pigment Ink and let it dry completely.  Once it dried, using my Blender Pen, I colored the flower in with Purple Posy Ink.  I stamped the single bird from the Stampin’ Up Free As A Bird Cling Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink on a small panel of Whisper White cardstock.  Using my Crumb Cake and Purple Posy Stampin’ Blends Markers, I colored the bird in.  I cut the bird out using the Stitched Nested Labels Dies. I adhered the lace panel to the Crumb Cake card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the artwork on the edge of the card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Free As A Bird stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the edge image from the A Little Lace stamp set on either side of the Whisper White panel in Purple Posy Ink.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Purple Posy mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Crumb Cake card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the small flower image from the A Little Lace stamp set in Purple Posy Ink along the bottom edge of the envelope front and on the envelope flap.  The flowers on the envelope flap I colored in using my Purple Posy Stampin’ Blends Markers.

Thank you for visiting my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try.  Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up Lovely Lattice White Wash Technique

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers.  How has your week started out?

For today’s card I’ve done the White Wash Technique for you.  I haven’t done this in a while and I just love how it turns out.  Here’s my card.

I’ve played along with a few challenges for today’s card.  1st is ‘Just Us Girls‘ word week challenge # 477.  Be sure to stop by to play along and see what everyone has made.  Here is their challenge.  This one was pretty easy and left a wide variety.

The next one is Paper Craft Crew Simple Stamping Theme Challenge #328.  I don’t do simple that often, but I really enjoyed it with this card.  This one was a little harder since I’m so used to using multiple layers.  Here’s their challenge.

Last was the Sunday Stamps Natures Hues challenge #199.  They had a some gorgeous colors to work with.  Be sure to stop by and see what everyone has made and play along with their challenge.  Here are their colors.

I started by stamping the large image from the  Stampin’ Up Lovely Lattice Stamp Set, (Free Sale-A-Bration item), in Versamark Ink on a panel of Crumb Cake cardstock.  I immediately sprinkled it with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat set it using my Heat Tool.  Using my Aqua Painter I colored the flowers with Craft Whisper White Ink and let it dry throughly.  I actually let it go overnight to make sure it was good and dry.

Once it was dry, using my Blender Pens I added color to the flowers starting darker in the middle and blending it out to the edges.  I used Flirty Flamingo, Gorgeous Grape and Pacific Point Inks for my flowers and Coastal Cabana Ink for my leaves.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Well Said Stamp Set in Gorgeous Grape Ink on a strip of Whisper White cardstock and made a banner out of it.  I adhered the banner to the left side if the card front using Snail.  I adhered the card front to a Flirty Flamingo card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered a Gorgeous Grape Glitter Enamel Dot to the sentiment banner and a few Clear Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Well Said stamp set in Gorgeous Grape Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the smaller flowers from the Lovely Lattice stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the corners and colored them in using my Blender Pen with the same colors as I did on the card front.

I finished my card by decorating a Medium Craft Envelope.  Unfortunately these envelopes are no longer available, but it seemed to go beautifully with my card.  I stamped the large flower image from the Lovely Lattice stamp set on the front of the envelope and colored it in the same as I did for the card front with my Blender Pen.  I stamped the smaller flowers from the same stamp set on the envelope flap and colored them in the same as I did for the inner liner.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Happy Stamping!!
