Waterfront Stampin' Up!

Waterfront for the Avid Stamper

Hello Friends,

I love to create beautiful scenes with stamps, ink and paper.  Scenery stamp sets such a the Waterfront stamp set, the  Sending Sunshine stamp set and the Snow Front stamp set are so, so easy to use.  Plus, they work for stampers of all skill levels from beginner to avid stampers.  All 3 Stamp sets, Snow Front, Sending Sunshine and the Waterfront,  are going away as of May 3, so if you would like to give these fantastic scenery stamp sets a try, scoop them up before they are gone for good.

Keep going.  There's cards ideas for card makers of all skill levels below, plus 3 Video Tutorials for making cards!

Waterfront Stampin' Up!

Waterfront for the Beginner Stamper

Watch the step by step tutorial below to learn the basics of card making.  It's a 101 class for the Beginner Card Maker.

 

This cute but simple card was made with stamps, ink, and paper.  The Waterfront stamp set creates a lovely scene for the front of the card.


Sending Sunshine Stampin' Up!

Sending Sunshine for the Casual Stamper

To make this card, I inked my water stamps with Soft Sea Foam ink and layered the two stamps.  Next, I stamped the sunshine using So Saffron Ink.  I wanted a softer blue for my clouds, so I stamped off my Seaside Spray ink and then stamped my clouds.  The leaves and sentiment were stamped with Just Jade Ink.

Stamping Techniques

Masking-This technique is just what it sounds like.  We have all masked areas before painting a room.  The concept is the same for card masking.  Simply block off an area.  On today's card, I masked the bottom part of my card while building my horizon.  For masking, you can try a variety of materials such as Stamping Mask Paper, Post It Notes or card stock.

I sponged the horizon with Seaside Spray, Flirty Flamingo and So Saffron inks.  The beach area was sponged with Sahara Sand ink.

I fussy cut around the words.

Approaching Perfection 2 Technique Birthday Card

Approaching Perfection Stampin' Up!

Hello Friends,

One of my favorite January-February 2021 Sale-a-Bration (FREE) products is the Approaching Perfection stamp set with its humorous birthday sentiments.  This fun Double Stamped Background Card Technique is a great way to incorporate multiple sentiments.  Hint:  I positioned my stamps on my Stamparatus (Stamp Positioning Tool) for even precise stamping.  I love the results!  The sentiments stamped in white (second layer stamping) are from a second stamp set called Ridiculously Awesome.

The second Technique is the Floating Die-Cut Technique.  It's really quite simple to do.  After stamping your background, simple die cut a shape.  I used the Stitched Stars dies.  Then, I used the "happy birthday" die cut (Well Written Dies) to hold my floating star in place.  See the bottom of this post for a complete Card Supply List.  Just for fun, I stacked additional Stitched Stars inside beneath the floating star.

Time running out

Reminder, if you would like the Approaching Perfection or any other January-February 2021 Sale-a-Bration product, the clock is ticking.  This offer ends at the end of February.

Highlighting Card Technique with Hey Birthday Chick

Hey Birthday Chick Stampin' Up!

Hello Friends,

Welcome to day 4 of Hey Birthday Chick.  Today we'll use the Hey Birthday Chick Bundle to make 4 Cards using the Highlighting Technique.  This is an easy Card Making Technique.  Using this technique I was able to make  a stack of  4 cards highlighting different chicks each time.  Which chick is your favorite chick?  Tell us in the comments. 

 For our first card the Wacky Feathered Chick steals the show.

 


Hey Birthday Chick Stampin' Up!

Each card started with a black and white background which I stamped with my Stamparatus and the Hey Birthday Chick stamp set, then I trimmed the panels with my largest Stitched Rectangle die.  That was easy!  Add a Thick Basic White Card Base and we are off and running.

Card #2 emphasizes the Birthday Chick.  For this one, I simply cut around my colored chick using her die from the Birthday Chick Die Set (158200).

Card #3 is a Baby Card with the little Hatching Chick.  To accomplish this I did pull in one additional stamp set for the Welcome Baby Sentiment (Moving Along stamp set).

Last, but not least, the Dancing Chick take the lead.  She was colored with Mango Melody, Daffodil Delight and Poppy Parade Stampin' Blends.  Then, I framed her using the Layering Circle dies and Poppy Parade Card Stock.
