Pals Blog Hop: Families First

Welcome to the Pals April  2018 Blog Hop. Join us while we put “Families First” in our hop this month. The Stampin’ Pretty Pals will inspire you with family related projects like Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Graduation or Family Vacations. You may be just starting or hopped over from another Pal. In either case, you’ll find the line-up toward the end of my post to help you move along.

I don’t know about you, but if you use Stampin’ Up! products you already know that they color match everything for you.  You can get as fancy as you’d like and learn as you go along.  I prefer simple and this card be sent to a special momma after the birth of her baby girl.

Stamp Ink Paper: Elements

Today’s card is a Natural Elements Challenge and what is more natural than venicen?  At least that’s what my husband said when I asked him what he considers a natural element.  LOL

What do you consider a natural element?  Show us this week over at the Stamp Ink Card Challenge #82.

The Details:

  • Dual Colored Flowers.  The easiest ever way to color an image two different colors is with your Stampin’ Write markers.  See video below if you haven’t seen it done.
  • Masking Technique.  To give the image the look as if the deer are standing in front of tall grass, I did the masking technique.  Many know what it is, but basically you stamp the image on a piece of paper (sticky note works great) and the image already stamped on cardstock is covered to protect the image.  You then simple stamp over it.  You can view a video below to see what I’m talking about.

Use Host Code above and receive a gift from me when you place an on-line order via my on-line store.  Do not use if your order is more than $150. You will receive additional Host Reward and you’ll automatically receive a gift from me.

Kind Regards,

Stamp Ink Paper: Colors of Thanksgiving #71

Thanksgiving

I can’t get over how stinkin’ cute the Halloween Cookie Cutter stamp set is.  I have used this set more than any new set from the Holiday catalog.  The set can be purchased in a bundle (link below) and I guarantee it’s going to become one of those highly sought after punch and sets after it’s retired.  However, this card was made for the Stamp Ink Paper Color Challenge.

Stamp Ink Paper

I love these colors for the challenge this week?  Why?  Because they are so different and they remind me of the crisp cool colors of Fall leaves.  They remind me of when I lived in New Jersey.  Isn’t it so awesome how three colors take you back in time and sparks a memory that makes you miss the East Coast?

Thanksgiving

The Details:

  • Watercolored Made Easy.  Ever since Stampin’ Up! removed the Blendabilities from its inventory (due to production issues) I have missed using a coloring pen that is easy to blend.  Watercoloring has always intimidated me and I told myself to stop being a cry-baby and just use it!  So I did!  The trick to fading is to continue to color even after the color seems to have faded. The best thing about it is that it doesn’t have to be perfect.  Now, I can’t stop watercoloring because it truly is so easy!!!
  • Ombre Look Without Reinking.  To give the sentiment an ombre look I used the Stamp-a-ma-jig to get the stamping to line up perfectly.  After making sure it had a good amount of ink on the rubber I simply continued to stamp until the ink faded.  I think I can safely say continuous stamping to create an ombre look is a no brainer.
