Reflections on Swan Lake

May 15, 2017

I decided to stamp and colour the swans on both these cards, again from the Swan Lake set, in black. For the first card, I re-visited the reflection technique and an old favourite – Lovely as a Tree.

Card: Night of Navy, Whisper White;
Stamp Pads: Archival – Basic Black, Crumb Cake, Old Olive, Soft Sky, Pool Party, Pumpkin Pie;
Stamps: Swan Lake, Lovely as a Tree, Gift of Love (hostess);
Other: Bunch of Banners framelits, Stamp-a-ma-jig image sheet, sponges, Wink of Stella – clear

This last card was another CASE of a swap card I received at On Stage back in November from Ariana Brinkmeyer:

Card: Real Red, Whisper White;
Stamp Pads: Archival – Basic Black, Real Red, Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight, So Saffron;
Stamps: Swan Lake, Watercolor Wash, Rose Wonder;
Other: Layering Circles framelits, dimensionals, blender pen, Wink of Stella – clear

I still have a couple of other ideas to try out for this set when I get a little time to play!

Card: Whisper White, Calypso Coral, Sahara Sand, Bermuda Bay
Stamp Pads: Bermuda Bay, Sahara Sand, Pool Party, Soft Sky
Stamps: Watercolor Wings, Rose Wonder
Other: Layering Circles framelits, Butterflies thinlits, Festive embossing folder, sponges, dimensionals

Bokeh with Stitched Shapes & Flourish Thinlits

November 22, 2016

This was one of the cards we made for the previous weekend’s class – Bokeh is a fabulous technique. We used one of the Stitched Circles from the Stitched Shape framelits; these lovely dies will be in next year’s catalogue but they are available right now along with some matching discounted stamp sets – check it out under ‘Stitched from the Heart’ on the Stampin’ Up! website.

When I’ve used this technique previously I’ve sponged the circles directly from the Whisper White stamp pad, but the sponge always leaves some ink behind to discolour the stamp pad, so this time I used the re-inker and it worked a treat!

I think the copper embossing and copper foil look really good with these colours.

Card: Bermuda Bay, Whisper White, Copper foil
Stamp Pads: Pool Party, Bermuda Bay, Pacific Point, Versamark
Stamps: Better Together
Other: Stitched Shape framelits, Layering Circle framelits, Flourish thinlits, copper embossing powder, Whisper White craft re-inker, sponge dauber, acetate, various size circle punches
