Stamp-a-Stack, card layout 3

This past weekend I held a Stamp-a-Stack at my house where we created 12 cards, 3 each of 4 designs. This is the third post sharing the cards this week.

I don’t know the original inspiration for this card since I saw it so long ago but I somewhat followed this card by Lyssa Griffin Zwolanek and this one by Tami White.  The slit is 1 1/2″ long at the halfway point.

Also, today is the last day to order any of the retiring products that haven’t sold out yet!

Stamp-a-Stack, card layout 2

This past weekend I held a Stamp-a-Stack at my house where we created 12 cards, 3 each of 4 designs.  This is the second of the cards I’m sharing this week.

I wasn’t a huge fan of some of the Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper and this was a great way to use the paper but not overwhelm the card.  I’m not sure why the Rhinestones appear yellow on all of the cards but I didn’t color them.  I was inspired by this card created by Chiaki Haverstick.  The new catalog starts this Friday and it has a beautiful new butterfly die that I need to try this with.

Say Goodbye to Watercolor Wings

Next year I need to count my retiring stamp sets and then decide when to start the blog posts.  Whew!  That was a lot of stamp sets.  Today I’m featuring Watercolor Wings.  Now this set didn’t get nearly enough love from me.  When it first came out, I didn’t understand the appeal but then I started seeing the incredible butterflies being created and I had to have it.  I don’t think I ever featured this set in a card class, it can be a little tricky to line everything up and I only got my Stamparatus a few months ago.  On this card you can barely see the stamped image I created with the retiring Tempting Turquoise alone but it’s pretty.  The Basic Black is coated with Wink of Stella.

And a close up of the butterfly.  It’s amazing all the faults you can see when you look at a close up.  🙂

Say Goodbye to Swan Lake

Swan Lake is a cute set but I’ve had trouble thinking of ideas on how to use it.  I’ve had these marbled papers sitting on my craft table for a few months now waiting for me to think of a way to use them and today is the day one of them is getting used.  I did the shaving cream technique using Dapper Denim and Pool Party.  My goal was to create a galaxy background like Linda Dalke created but since I had the marbled shaving cream I created some backgrounds with that too.  I used the Watercolor pencils and Blender pen to add a little color to the swan.

Say Goodbye to Watercolor Wash

When I first saw the Watercolor Wash stamp in the catalog I had to have it.   I LOVE the look of a watercolor wash but I’m not very good at doing it.  For this card I was inspired by Jennifer McGuire (LOVE HER!), she uses rainbow colors on all sorts of things and I thought it would look good on the Watercolor Wash stamp.  For both cards I used the following Stampin’ Write Markers: Rose Red, Tangerine Tango, Daffodil Delight, Wild Wasabi, Tempting Turquoise, and Elegant Eggplant.  All of these colors except Daffodil Delight are retiring.

For the first card, I added the color to the Watercolor Wash stamp using the markers and then I sprayed it a few times with water before stamping.

For the second card, I added the color to the Watercolor Wash stamp using the markers and then I sprayed the paper a few times with water before stamping.

I love how “smooshed” the second card is!  The Happy Birthday was done using Versamark and black embossing powder which is coming back in the new catalog!
