Stamp Ink Paper: A Wedding

What do you give a friend that is an artist and her groom is a painter….LOL?  Is it obvious!?  I collect little charms and make my own chains to boot!  I then the charms when making cards.  On this card I used two cute little kissing love birds.  They are perfect for this wedding card because it has something old and something new and you can see what they are in The Details below.

If you need some inspiration for wedding cards then come on down to the Stamp Ink Paper Challenge and you’ll be sure to be inspired by our team designers. 

The Details:

  • New Stamp Set.  The sentiment is embossed with white embossing power to make it standout on the dark wood paper.  Keep a look out for the Colorful Season Photopolymer stamp set (143726). You’re going to love it.
  • New Designer Series Paper.  It’s better than the previous wood textures they had last year.  Stampin’ Up! continues to one-up itself (LOL)…..so, keep an eye out for the Wood Textures Designer Series stack.
  • Spilled Paint.  I made the spilled paint spots with the soon to retire Gorgeous Grunge stamp set, so get it while you can still buy it on-line.  You’d be surprised how many people will want it after it’s no longer available. It happens with each catalog.
  • Love Birds Bracelet.  I collect charms from all over the place and also buy them on-line.  I use them to make gifts and put on cards (obviously).  These are two love birds because it’s a wedding card.

Stamp Ink Paper: Embossing Challenge

Christmas

Have you started your Christmas cards yet?  I’m a little behind this year, but they’e slowly getting done.  Today’s card is for the Stamp Ink Paper card challenge .

Stamp Ink Paper Challenge

Enter your card into the Embossing challenge at Stamp Ink Paper here.

Christmas

The Details:

  • Wet Ink on Emobssing!?  Yes, that will happen and you’ll get ink all over the card!  It happened twice and to make sure it didn’t happen a third time I used the heat tool to dry it. It worked and I didn’t have to make a third card (LOL).
  • Embellishments.  If your a current demo and have a blog, never be ashamed or afraid to use retired (no longer available) embellishments.  Where do you think the snowflakes came from?  Not a demo?  Just proof that if you fall in love with a Stampin’ Up! product don’t wait until it’s no longer available, but stock up.
  • How to Prevent Embossing Powder Fly-aways.  Rule of thumb is to gently rub the Embossing Buddy over the cardstock before it is stamped with Versamark Ink.  Why?  Because it prevents loose embossing power to fly away and melt onto the card where it doesn’t belong.  It’s something I often forget to do when embossing and I figured I should remind you (LOL).

Stamp Ink Paper: Love

14232041_10153815158103531_6990823276322308668_o

I’m in Love with anything creative and handmade and so is the rest of  the Stamp Ink Paper Design Team.  Today we made our cards to reflect anything about Love and my card is a birthday card to my great-uncle who will turn 69 in a couple of weeks.  Join us this week and show off some LOVE at the Stamp Ink Paper Challenge blog.

Stamp Ink Paper

Sometimes I have no idea what my cards will come out when I’m not using a sketch.  So, I go at it blindly and so far, I’m always pleased with the outcome.  I’m a little jealous of card-makers who can whip out a card in an hour or less.  I totally admire their talent.  This one took me 2 days…oh my.  But, it’s the love I have for card-making that doesn’t matter how long or how little it may take.  Anything made with LOVE is totally worth it.

Stamp Ink Paper

The Details:

  • Sunken Heart Cutout.  After adhering the Playfull Pallette DSP to Basic Black Cardstock, I used a heart from the Sweet & Sassy collection to cut out the heart.  I then doubled up the Stampin’ Dimensionals to add height to the cutout.  The heart with the 69 was adhered to the base first before the frame before the Stampin’ Dimensionals were applied (hope that made sense).  Doing so allowed me to center it perfectly on the base.
  • Tricky Hello Thinlits. There are endless types of glue one can use to apply very thin embellishments, but know that you don’t need to purchase tons of different types of glue.  Stampin’ Up! has the most strongest Fine-Tip glue pen that works extremely well.  No need to run it through another type that requires another gadget. I love it!!!
