Perfectly Penciled DSP & Happiness Abounds Stamp Set

 Hello and thanks for visiting!

I posted today's card on Instagram last evening, and I'm finally getting around to writing a couple of *Trix for creating it.  Yep, thanks Tallulah (new puppy) oh well better late than never.

Click here, Lesley's StampinTrix on Instagram for more inspiration.

My card was inspired by two challenges, the Just Add Ink Sketch Challenge #601  & the Global Design Project Color Challenge #341  & uses two products from the New 2022 - 2023 Annual Catalogue.  Yes, the catty is now live Yay! 




Assembly & Trix:

*  Cut a section of pattern from the Perfectly Penciled DSP, #159244 5 1/4 x 4.  Die cut a section of flowers using the Layering Circles Dies, #151770.  Colour with Stampin' Blends Markers in Pale Papaya, Calypso Coral & Pool Party.

***Trix, adhere Foam Adhesive Strips, #141825 to the Basic Black 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 card base, instead of the DSP, then simply lay the DSP on top.  This helps to evenly line up the DSP.  The Foam Adhesive Strips are taller than dimensionals, so they create more of a shadow effect then regular dimensionals.

***Trix, line up the coloured circle so the pattern matches, adhere to the card base with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Using 2 different adhesives creates a shadow, and provides dimension, simple little Trix :)

*  The Memento Black ink stamped sentiment is from the Happiness Abounds Stamp Set, #159238 and framed with a piece of Basic Black cardstock.  This stamp set has a variety of terrific sentiments.  I've used the sentiment 'you are wonderful in every way' on the inside of the card.  Use Matte Black Dots , #154284 for the embellishment and we're done!  :)

Butterflies & Flowers Layering Decorative Masks

 Hello and thanks for visiting!

First day crafting with the new pup!  It's taken me all day, but I've made a card - finally :)  Please meet our newest family member, her picture is at the bottom of this post.   

Today's card is inspired by 3 challenges.  Click on the names to visit the blogs.  The Theme Challenge  at Global Design Project #339  - Flowers, the Hand Stamped Sentiments Color Challenge #387 & the Technique/Product Challenge at #tgifc364  Please click on the hyperlinks to visit their blog posts and enjoy all the inspiration you will find!




The Butterflies & Flowers Layering Decorative Masks, #158142 are from the January to June Mini Catalogue.  They're not carrying over into the new Annual Catalogue but rest assured Stampin' Up!® is bringing us some new ones to play with in the Annual Catalogue coming May 3rd.  The bottom flower has a unique pattern because I layered Pacific Point on Pacific Point with two different patterns.  Enjoy these masks, they're very versatile!




Hand Stamped Sentiments offers us Coastal Cabana, Bermuda Bay & Pacific Point to work with.  The lightest Coastal Cabana didn't show as much as I hoped so I've added the Coastal Cabana Rhinestone Jewels from the Rhinestone Waves Basic Jewels pack, #159396 (available while supplies last), to bring the colour out a bit more.

Free As A Bird for #PP586 & # GDP338

 Hello and thanks for visiting!

Today's card is inspired by The Paper Players Colour Challenge #586 and the Sketch Challenge from Global Design Project #338.  Please click on their images to visit their blog post and enjoy the inspiration - then go make a card and express your creativity! :)




Assembly & Trix:

*  The Free As A Bird Stamp Set, #149468 is retiring, it's one of my fav's!

*  The ***Trix, with this card is to use your Stamparatus™ to create the mirror image.  Stamp directly on the Silicone Craft Sheet, #127853, lay the paper on top to pick up the image.  Then flip it over and stamp a second image so it looks like the birds are chatting.

*  Here near the Niagara Escarpment we watch migrating birds at this time of year, and my goal with the colouring was to create a 'House Finch' &  a 'Gold Finch'.  

*  The birds were coloured with  Stampin' Blends Markers in Daffodil Delight & Polished Pink, I coloured over the Polished Pink slightly with Gray Granite to soften the brightness a bit, the neutral from the challenge.

*  The Coastal Cabana was blended on with Blending Brushes.  A bit of Twine around the Polished Pink sentiment and we're done.  Fun Technique, Simple card :)
