Beautiful You Card and Coloring Tips

Beautiful You Stampin' Up!Hello Friends,

Have a mentioned that I love coloring with my Stampin' Blends.  The girl on this card depicts how I feel every time I pick up my new blends.  Just look at those gorgeous colors.  The Beautiful You stamp set is a great set to brush up on your coloring skills.  Hint:  Leave just a touch of white showing to look like light shining on your picture.  Can you spot the touch of light on her dress?


Beautiful You Stampin' Up!

Just seeing all those beautiful colors in a row makes my heart sing.  Can you name the colors?  From top to bottom, they are Pineapple Punch, Highland Heather, Mint Macaron, Pool Party, Flirty Flamingo, Granny Apple Green and Soft Suede.  Hint: When coloring with Stampin' Blends use Momento Ink to prevent smearing.

 Stampin' Blends Coloring Tips

To color her dress, I started with my Highland Heather light, then I worked in Highland Heather Dark along the lines and shadows.

Her hat started with Mint Macaron light and moved to Mint Macaron dark.  Hint:  You can go back and blend with the light after coloring with the dark, but take card not to over saturate or you will loose your blended look.

I bathed her in sunshine using my Pineapple Punch Stampin' Blend.  The Pool of water is Pool Party.
 

Beautiful You Stampin' Up!

 Here she is talking a stroll in the rain.  I'm really crushin' on her Granny Apple Green Umbrella.  Her top is Pineapple Punch and her skirt is Flirty Flamingo.  Hint:  The Petal Pink Stampin' Blends make a pretty skin tone.

For a fun twist, I stamped the sentiment directly on my card base.  I stamped Flirty Flamingo on Flirty Flamingo.  I cut my doily in half then placed in position to avoid perfect symmetry.

Beach Scene Card Made with High Tide Stamps

Beach Scene Card

Hello Friends,

Have you ever "cased"  or copied a card that someone else made?  Well, today's card is CASEd from the 2018-2019 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog on page 145.  Stampin' Up! Catalogs are always so jam packed with cute ideas.  This particular card features that High Tide Stamp Set and the Under the Sea Framelit Dies.   


Homemade Beach Scene Card

I changed up a few little details, but it's basically a CASEd Card.  If you look on page 145 of the Stampin' Up! Catalog, you'll notice that they used the Brights In Color Designer Paper.  I used the Nature's Poem Designer Paper.  The original card used Crumb Cake Ink to stamp the sand.  I used Sahara Sand Ink.  I also used my favorite new die set-Stitched Labels-to make the ticket for my sentiment.

Technique-I used the Masking Technique to create the layers of beach and water.  Which basically means that I covered the beach area while I spritzed the water with Coastal Cabana Ink mixed with a little water.  Then I stamped on the waves with Bermuda Bay Ink.  The beach was stamped with Sahara Sand ink and the grass was stamped with Soft Suede Ink.  The Sentiment was stamped with Tranquil Tide Ink.  You'll find the complete supply list at the bottom of this post.


High Tide Stampin' Up!

The Starfish were cut with the Under the Sea dies and Sahara Sand and Crumb Cake Card Stock.  The sun kissed shimmer was accomplished two ways.  First, I use Shimmery White Card Stock as my base and secondly, I brushed the sun kissed areas with my Wink of Stella Brush.  And finally, the fun little bead elements are the new Tranquil Textures Sprinkles.  They really finished off my card nicely.
