Say Goodbye to Marbled, Letters for You, & Large Letters Dies

I LOVE the Large Letters dies, they are my go to for scrapbook titles and are great for the eclipse technique I’m using here.  I will keep my set but there is a new die set on the way that I may have to use with this one.  I was trying to do an eclipse card I saw Jennifer McGuire do with colored letters and a white background but apparently you don’t want to use Berry Burst to do this.  🙂

For my first attempt, I used the Marbled background stamp, Versamark, and white embossing powder…Apparently you should make sure you cleaned your stamp well before putting it away because it came out with a pink tinge.  🙂  Then I stamped the letters on the background and tried to wipe away the ink off the embossing powder before die cutting….Um, that didn’t work well either, more pink tinge.  I went with it and attached the letters with mini stampin’ dimensionals.  🙂

For my second attempt, I die cut the letters first and then stamped them…Still the issue with coloring the embossing but at least it didn’t smear on the rest of the card.  I die cut 3 more sets of letters and built up the dimension for this version.

My OnStage Scrapbook Swap

I signed up to be in a scrapbook swap at OnStage, this is the layout I created.  I was inspired by the 08-20-2009 PageMaps sketch from http://letsscrap.ning.com/ now http://letsscrapsketches.blogspot.com/.

J. Pollock Designs - Stampin' Up! - Rooted in Nature, Letters for You

My layout has the title popped up on dimensionals but for the swaps I used adhesive sheets to save time putting them together.

I created lots of little leaves by die cutting them first and then using the negative space and my Stamparatus to stamp all of them at once.

Since I only had so much Designer Series Paper to work with, I created this layout first to see if I liked it.  I like this layout more entirely because of the Blackberry Bliss but I didn’t have enough of this paper to do 12 more.

Beautiful Blizzard – Day 13

This was my daughters favorite card and one of mine too.  I just love the color combination.  I’m almost exactly CASE’d it from TatianaCreative.com.au.  Her card was just so beautiful.  Now I just need to create a scrapbook page to put the SNOW on.  🙂

Highland Heather and Pool Party were stamped off before stamping on the card front for the snowflakes, Balmy Blue was stamped full strength.

Beautiful Blizzard – Day 2

I love to scrapbook and I always create a layout for Demos Galore because I know there must still be some others out there that, like me, still scrapbook.  With two Demos Galore sessions a year at least I get two layouts done.  🙂  I really need to put more time into it since this layout is from 2013.  The Letters for You and Brushwork Alphabet stamp sets are my go to for scrapbook titles.  For the Brushwork Alphabet, I first stamped in Balmy Blue ink and then again using Memento Tuxedo Black.  This was a happy accident since I couldn’t see the title over the stamped snowflake background and I decided to darken it up.  I used the snowflake stamp to create my patterned paper by simply stamping once using Balmy Blue and then stamping a second time without re-inking turning my stamp as I went.

Great Grandma Scrapbook Layout

I’m trying to do more scrapbook layouts so today I’m playing along with the Let’s Scrap challenge.  I had a minor issue with this layout because I put one piece of Designer Series Paper on upside down, so it’s not exactly like the sketch.  I used my Stamparatus and applied the ink with sponge daubers and stamped twice to get a clean & bold image for the pennant stamp.

Here’s the sketch I was following:

Here is what it was supposed to look like but then things would be upside down.  🙂

Blind Scrapbooking Challenge

This is something I’ve never done before but it really sounded like fun.  I did a blind scrapbook challenge over on the Scrapbooking Global – Stampin’ Up! Facebook group.

Here are the instructions (edited for clarity):

Materials

  • 12″ x 12″ Cardstock Base
  • 4″ x 12″ Matching DSP
  • 1-1/4″ X 12″ Cardstock Strip for border punch
  • 4″ x 3″ Cardstock that matches DSP or layout Base
  • 3-1/2″ x 2-1/4″ Cardstock that matches DSP or layout Base OR if you don’t want to journal you could add another photo 3-1/2″ x 2-1/4″
  • Scraps of Whisper White Cardstock for sentiment
  • Scraps of Whisper White Cardstock for large flower stamp
  • Scraps of Whisper White Cardstock for 2 small stamped Hearts
  • 40cm piece of matching ribbon
  • Metallic Thread
  • Pearls
  • 1 Colored Doilies or Pearlized Doilies or retired doilies
  • Wooden Embellishments – 1 leaf and 2 hearts or similar
  • 2 Matching Classic Stampin’ Pads to your cardstock
  • 2 Matching Ink Daubers to your cardstock
  • 4″ x 6″ photo
  • Adhesives – Tear & Tape, Snail, Stampin’ Dimensionals, Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals and Glue Dots

Method

  1. Starting with your 12″ x 12″ cardstock base, stamp background with matching Classic Stampin’ Ink Pad.  Stamp along the top left hand side, depending on the size of your background stamp you may have to stamp twice.  (NOT GOING PAST THE MIDDLE POINT OF THE CARDSTOCK).
  2. Stamp background with matching Classic Stampin’ Ink Pad, stamp along the bottom right hand side, depending on the size of your background stamp you may have to stamp twice. (NOT GOING PAST THE MIDDLE POINT OF THE CARDSTOCK) – I missed this one.
  3. Cut your doily in half, stick one half under the top edge of your matching DSP approx. 1″ off the left hand side edge, now with the remaining half of the doily stick it approx. half way along under the bottom edge of your matching DSP.
  4. Next stick your matching DSP with Tear & Tape or Snail approx. 4-1/2″ down from the top of your 12 x 12 layout across the page. (You could distress/ink the edges of this piece if you desire.)
  5. Using your scraps of Whisper White cardstock, stamp your large flower stamp with your matching Classic Stampin’ Ink Pad. Cut out your flower with scissors, dies, or punch.
  6. Using your scraps of Whisper White cardstock, stamp 2 small hearts cut out with scissors, dies, or punch.
  7. If you want, ink the edges on the 4″ x 3″ cardstock and 3-1/2″ x 2-1/4″ cardstock. (If you don’t want to journal you could have another photo here.)
  8. With your 1-1/4″ x 12″ cardstock strip punch the bottom edge with any border punch or die and stick on with Tear & Tape or Snail to your matching DSP approx. half an inch off the bottom.
  9. Grab your photo, you could add a couple of mats if you want. Tie your ribbon around the photo.
  10. Grab your 3-1/2” X 2-1/4″ cardstock for your journaling block (which you may have distressed or inked) and add your journaling or you could have another photo here.
  11. Using your scraps of Whisper White cardstock for a sentiment, stamp a small sentiment.
  12. Stick your journaling block (or photo) with Tear & Tape or Snail to your distressed/inked 4″ x 3″ cardstock, leaving a small border on the bottom right hand side to stick your small sentiment. Add Tear & Tape to the back of this to stick under your photo.
  13. Stick one of the stamped hearts beside your small sentiment on your journaling block on the right hand side of sentiment with a Glue Dot or two.
  14. Now with your 4″ x 6″ photo, stick it on an angle between the 2 halves of the doily.
  15. Add your 2nd stamped heart above the photo.
  16. Add some Metallic Thread behind your stamped cut out large flower with some Glue Dots. Add to the bottom of the photo just overlapping your.
  17. Add your wooden leaf embellishment under your flower with a Glue Dot or two.
  18. Stick your 2 wooden heart embellishments with Glue Dots to the top left hand side of the photo.
  19. Stamp your large title underneath the DSP toward the right hand side of the edge of cardstock base using matching Classic Stampin’ Pads Ink.
  20. Add your pearls.
  21. Your layout is finished.

Here is how I interpreted it.
