In The Moment Tutorial and Stampin' Blends

IMG 3340

This In The Moment stamp set from Stampin' Up has three large images showing three different moments. I chose this image to highlight one of these great images, and the use of  Stampin' Blends. 

Stampin' Blends are alcohol-based makers from Stampin' Up. The Blends include a dark shade and a light shade in each combo pack for colouring and blending options. There is also an option for a Colour Lifter to provide highlights and dimension. 

Here is the tutorial to make this card:

1. The base is Basic White Thick card stock cut at 5 1/2" x 8 1/2 "
Scored at 4 1/4"

2. It is layered with a piece of pattern paper from Bloom Where you Are Planted paper pack
cut at 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"

3. I used the largest die from Scalloped Contour die set, and Misty Moonlight card stock for the second layer.

4. The image is stamped with Memento black ink on a piece of Basic White Card stock, again using the die from the Scalloped Contour Die set for this layer.

5. Here are the Stampin' Blends I used to colour this image.
Night of Navy  light and dark - skirt
So Saffron light and dark - hat
Light Pumpkin Pie - top
Dark Soft Suede - hair
Light Crumb Cake - table
Light Crumb cake - skin

A closer look at the image.

6. Added the sentiment from the In the Moment stamp set in Memento Black ink. 
To complete the card I used a Blending Brush and Pool Party ink to lightly enhance the image. 

7. For more dimension I added a double bow with Night of Navy twine.

Cards with Hello Ladybug Bundle

IMG 3355

To make this card I used  the Hello Ladybug stamp set and the LadyBug punch.
This is such a fun bundle to create.

I also used the Daisy Punch and the Stitched Greenery Die for the background. 
The Stitched Greenery die is a large die that can be used to create a background.

To make the Ladybugs I stamped the body with Memento Black ink on Basic White card stock. To punch out the wings I used Blushing Bride and the dots are stamped in Memento Black ink. 

To stamp the body and the wings I used my Stamparatus. This is a stamp positioning tool for photopolymer and cling stamps. This tool helps to create prefect stamps. 

Here are the measurement to make this card.

The base is 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" in Basic White.
The background layer is 4" x 51/4" in Mint Macaron. 

Here is the inside of the card

Stampin' Up has very pretty Designer Series Paper.  To make my Thank You cards for this month, I used the Pattern Party Designer Series paper pack. 

I made two different fun folds using the same paper.

Here are the measurements for this card 
Blushing Bride for the base cut at 4 1/4"  x 11" scored at 5 1/2"
To make the fold I cut off 1 1/4" from the front of the card, I was left with a 4 1/4" x 4 1/4" front.
I layered the front with a piece of 4" x 4" pattern paper. (DSP)
I also cut a piece of DSP  measuring 1 1/4" x 4" for bottom of the card. 

I used  two of the Scalloped Contour Dies for my sentiment.
The big Thanks is from the Biggest Wish Stamp set.

For the inside of the card I used the Create with Friends stamp set and the flowers are from the Hello Ladybug set.
