Splendid Day Suite for #jai622

 Hello and thanks for visiting!

Today's card is for the Choose Two Challenge at Just Add Ink #622 this week.  I choose masking and foliage and added in the friend sentiment too.  Please click here @ Just Add Ink to visit the inspiration!

And thank you Just Add Ink Design Team for choosing my card last week, it was a lovely surprise, I'm really glad you liked it, thank you!  If you missed that post please click here.   

Have you ever tried masking with a die cut shape?  I love the filler stamps in the Splendid Thoughts stamp set #159688, they 'casually' fill in the outline stamps, but when I looked at the Splendid Stems Dies, #159676 I thought I'd try something a little different - please read on to see the *Trix.  




Assembly & Trix,

*  Adhere a 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 piece of Splendid Day Specialty Designer Series Paper, #159666 to a Pool Party card base.

*  Die cut a solid stem from a scrap piece of cardstock to create a decorative mask.  ***Trix, with a sponge dauber gently add Pool Party ink to the inside of the die cut image on a 3 x 4 piece of Basic White cardstock.  I chose a sponge dauber instead of a blending brush because the die cut image has delicate edges and is cut out of cardstock instead of the Stampin' Up!® decorative masks material.

*  Emboss a scrap piece of cardstock with the Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder, #154317 and then cut out the pot from the Splendid Day Die, adhere with glue.

*  Stamp the sentiment from the Dragonfly Garden Stamp Set, #154411  ***Trix, mask off part of the sentiment with a post it note or tape, to get just the words you'd like, then adhere with dimensionals.  Embellish with the 2021 -2023 In Color™ Opal Rounds, #159185.

Adventurous Journey for #hss398 & #stampinfancyfriday

 Hello and thanks for visiting!

I have two cards for you today, inspired by the Sketch Challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments.  Please click on the #hss398 image below to visit their blog and enjoy the inspiration!  *And Wow!, thanks so very much Hand Stamped Sentiments Design Team for choosing my card for Inspiration challenge #397, you made my day!  Please click here to visit that blog post.

The first card is a SIP card, use only Stamps, Ink & Paper, (well I added a couple of gems too just 'cause - ha) and the second is a Stepped Up version using the He's The Man Specialty Designer Series Paper, #159068.  I remember when I first started stamping I bought one pack of cardstock with my favourite colours, a pack of white cardstock and one ink pad.  So in the spirit of First Time Stampers or those that are building their collection, I chose to create a SIP card and then also show how it can be Stepped Up, with an additional pack of DSP.



 

Assembly & Trix

SIP card,

*  Use Tahitian Tide to create a 7 x 8 1/2 slimline card, (score at 3 1/2) with a 3 1/4 x 8 1/4 distressed layer, ***Trix, simply rough up the edges with a pair of scissors.

*  Stamp the kayak and rings using the Adventurous Journey Stamp Set, #159103 with Tahitian Tide Ink on the Tahitian Tide layer as per the sketch.

*  Stamp a second kayak with Bermuda Bay ink on Tahitian Tide cardstock, for a darker, yet slightly monochromatic look.  ***Trix, use a Water Painter, #151298 to add a tiny bit of Bermuda Bay ink to the Kayak, (taking care to not squeeze out too much water and smear the stamped image), then fussy cut out. 

*  Adhere the second kayak with dimensionals over the first to create dimension.

*  Stamp happy birthday with Tahitian Tide ink on Basic White cardstock and fussy cut out, adhere with dimensionals. 




Stepped Up version,

*  I switched up the slimline slightly by changing the measurements to a 7 x 7 square, score at 3 1/2.  Adhere the 3 1/4 x 6 3/4 piece of He's the Man DSP, #159068 and distress the edges with scissors, then adhere to the card base with glue.  

*  This Specialty DSP pack has a page of 'elements' - I used the ripped edge piece as the anchoring layer for the kayak.  Stamp the rings from the stamp set with Soft Succulent ink then adhere with glue.

*  Stamp the kayak with Soft Succulent Ink on a scrap piece of Basic White cardstock.  Colour with Soft Succulent Stampin' Blends Markers, fussy cut out, and adhere with dimensionals.

*  Stamp the sentiment with Early Espresso ink, fussy cut out and adhere with dimensionals.  Embellish with Rustic Metallic Dots, #159082  


I've also added my card to the Stampin' Fancy Friday September Challenge - Boys to Men.  Click here to visit the gallery on Instagram & visit Lesley's StampinTrix on Instagram here.

My son loved to kayak when he was younger, he's now an Outdoor Adventure Educator.  I'm so grateful we were able to provide him with opportunities that shaped his future!

Whimsical Woodland for #gdp361 & #jai621 Challenges

 Hello and thanks for visiting!

Today's Christmas card is inspired by the #361 Colour Challenge @ Global Design Project - use Parakeet Party, Shaded Spruce & Flirty Flamingo, perfect for a whimsical Christmas card I think.  The Design layout is inspired by the #621 Sketch Challenge @ Just Add Ink, a perfect sketch for a cluster of trees.  Please click the images below to visit the blogs and enjoy the inspiration!






Assembly & Trix

*  Emboss a 4 x 5 1/4 piece of Flirty Flamingo with the Whimsical Woodland 3D Embossing Folder, #159831 then blend on a bit of White Craft Stampin' Ink, #147277 with a blending brush before adhering it to a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 Flirty Flamingo card base.

*  Die cut the trees using Parakeet Party & Shaded Spruce cardstock.   (I used the Sale-A-Bration Tree Lot dies)  the ***Trix, is to blend on a bit of Shaded Spruce ink to the Parakeet Party trees for some added depth & dimension before adhering the the card base.  

***Trix, use different adhesives and only add the adhesive to the card base so the trees can overlap each other without being bulky on the card.  Adhere the Shaded Spruce tree with glue, use rolled Glue Dots to adhere the Parakeet Party tree, then pop up the last tree with dimensionals.     

***Trix, instead of creating a bow, loop the Parakeet Party Bakers Twine, #159195 together and secure with a glue dot.  Stamp the sentiment from the Brightest Glow Stamp Set, #159863 with Parakeet Party ink and double stack the mini dimensionals to float the sentiment over the textured trees.  Embellish with Festive Pearls, #159963 & 2021 - 2023 In Color™ Opal Rounds, #159185.
