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.

I highly recommend using your Stamparatus for perfect stamped images when making this card. Some of the stamp sets featured in this video are no longer available but the techniques are the same.  Note:  Extra plates are no longer available.

My inside message was heat embossed white on black then punched with the Rectangular Postage Stamp Punch. Hint: To make this card even faster and easier, you could simply stamp the sentiment using black ink onto your white card base.

Curvy Celebrations Slimline Cards

 

Curvy Celebrations Stampin' Up!

2 Hot Topics in the Stamping World


Slimline Cards

Hello Friends,

Two trending topics in the stamping and cardmaking world are Slimline Cards and the new Curvy Celebrations products from Stampin' Up!.  So today I will share both how to make Slimline Cards and a Sneak Peek of the Curvy Celebrations products that will be available starting November 3.   See Curvy Celebrations Flyer Here.

Let's see what all the chatter is about!


Slimline Cards

What's the BIG Deal About Slimline Cards?

Slimline Card fit nicely in standard #9 or #10 envelopes that are readily available in almost any store.

You can fit more design elements on a Slimline card.

Do you find yourself bored with the standard size card?  Try a Slimline Card.  This tall narrow card is a refreshing change of pace.  Of course, there's also the option of making Slimline Cards on a smaller scale, but we will talk about that another day.

Slimline Card Measurements

Cut Card Base 8-1/2" x 7-1/2".  Note 8-1/2" is the height of the card.  Score at 3-3/4".

After cutting your card base from an 8-1/2" x 11" piece of card stock, you will have a piece leftover that works nicely for a front panel.  I trimmed mine to 8" x 3-1/4".  Then I dry embossed the front panel with my Subtle Embossing Folder for just a hint of texture.


Curvy Celebrations Stampin' Up!
Notice the two different options that I used for my leaves border.  The leaves can be stamped and then colored or they can be stamped directly on colored card stock.  Both options are pretty.  I used Just Jade card stock and Just Jade Stampin' Blends for today's cards.
