Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Place for the Ink It! Stamp It! Design Team Blog Hop

Welcome to the Ink it! Stamp it! Blog Hop!  I was so honored when Carolina Evans asked me to join this international design team blog hop.  This is a group of amazing stampers so be sure to hop through the full line up below so that you can see all of the projects!

I chose to use the Peaceful Place stamp set and I did a little watercoloring with a Blender Pen for my project.

I started by stamping the image from the Peaceful Place stamp set in StazOn Jet Black ink on a panel of Watercolor Paper.  I used my Stampin’ Write Markers in the following colors to add some ink to the image: Coastal Cabana, Pool Party, Sahara Sand, Gray Granite, Pear Pizzazz, Shaded Spruce, Crumb Cake and Mossy Meadow.

Once I had the basic color on the panel, I used a Blender Pen and colored over the image to soften the lines and do a little shading.  After I’d finished coloring, I adhered the “framing” around the edges with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  The frame was cut from a panel of Wood Textures DSP.  Once I had the frame adhered, I adhered the watercolor panel to a Shaded Spruce card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Enjoy Life photopolymer stamp set in VersaMark Ink on a panel of White Vellum card stock, sprinkled it with Black Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat embossed it.  I punched the bottom of the panel with the Banner Triple Punch and then adhered it with Glue Dots hidden under the button.  I tied a bow with Linen Thread through a True Gentleman Button and adhered it with a Glue Dot to the sentiment banner to finish the card front.

I stamped the leaves from the Peaceful Place stamp set in Shaded Spruce ink on a panel of Whisper White card stock to finish the inside of the card.

Thank you so much for joining us today. We hope you’ll join us again next month to see our technique based projects. I’m Amy Koenders and to keep hopping around see the list below to see who is up next.

Stampin’ Up! Pop of Petals for Fab Friday

I used the Stampin’ Up! Pop of Petals stamp set bundle to create my card for the Fab Friday color challenge this week.  This is the second card that we made at our team meeting on Saturday…love that it fits perfectly with this color challenge!

Here are the colors for Fab Friday 140.  Hope that you’ll stop by the Fab Friday Challenge Blog and play along too!

I started by cutting one of the Pearlized Doilies in half and using a little Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere it to a Thick Whisper White card base.  I punched the ends of a strip of 2018-2020 In Color 6″ x 6″ DSP with the Banner Triple Punch and then adhered it with Multipurpose Liquid Glue over the card front.  Then I wrapped a strand of Linen Thread around the card base twice and tied a bow.

I stamped the sentiment from the Enjoy Life photopolymer stamp set in Blueberry Bushel ink on the card base and then started stamping the flowers from the Pop of Petals stamp set in Lovely Lipstick, Grapefruit Grove and Pineapple Punch inks.  I stamped two of each flower, punched them out with the coordinating Four-Petal Flower Punch.  I adhered the flowers together with Glue Dots.

I stamped the leaf image from the Painted Harvest photopolymer stamp set in Call Me Clover ink on a panel of Call Me Clover card stock and punched them out with the coordinating Leaf Punch.  I adhered the leaf punches to the flowers with Glue Dots, then adhered the Pineapple Punch and Lovely Lipstick flowers to the card base with Glue Dots and the Grapefruit Grove flower with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added some random Rhinestone Basic Jewels to finish the card front.

I stamped the flower and leaf images from the Pop of Petals and Painted Harvest stamp sets in Lovely Lipstick, Grapefruit Grove, Call Me Clover and Pineapple Punch inks on a Whisper White panel inside the card.

The supplies used and card stock cuts for creating this card are listed at the very bottom of this blog post.
