Festive Friday: Bubble Over Brew Fiesta

Cinco de Mayo is a few short weeks away! (And we’re ready!!)

We have a new challenge over at Festive Friday Challenge that will get you thinking about the Mexican festival.  In the U.S., we extend the idea of the historical event into a full-on celebration of the Mexican culture. In Omaha, there are parades, carnivals and lots and lots of food!

Play along at the Festive Friday Challenge - Earn Fest Points for free stuff! Find us @festivefridaychallenge or festivefridaychallenge.com. New challenges every other Friday! #cardchallenge

Chances are, you don’t need an actual Cinco de Mayo card – but you can be inspired  by all of the colors and textures and amazing sights that happen during this fantastic festivity!

Still not feeling it? Create something with glitter or glimmer paper instead!

I used the “and” option this week – creating a project inspired by the colors of Cinco de Mayo (bright purples, pinks, yellows, oranges…) and a tiny bit of Glimmer Paper (do you see it behind the sentiment?).

See how easy it is to play along?

I created a fun Rich Razzleberry bottle using my Stampin’ Blends and Whisper White cardstock, along with the Bottles & Bubbles Framelits dies. (Get the bundle while it’s still 10% off!) And, it would appear that I’m in love with black rhinestones this week…

This time, I used every block except the Thank You block. If I’d had the right sentiment to fit the space, this would have been a thank you card – for a full board!

I love that this design is quick and simple. Swap out the DSP for another pattern, the background color for another rich, masculine color, and the sentiment for any other occasion and you have a quick set ready to go for any occasion.

Rhinestones? Yes, please! Even masculine cards can do with a bit of bling. Coloring these in black helps to keep them from popping too much, while still adding dimension and interest to the otherwise straight-forward design!

Hint: Use your Stampin’ Blends to color rhinestones in any shade you need!

If you like the look – be on the lookout next week for a tutorial and supply kit to make this card and a few variations so you have the perfect masculine cards for all sorts of occasions!

VIDEO: How to Wow – Distressed Metal (TTTC002)

Play along at the Tic Tac Toe Challenge - Inspiring you 8-ways each week! Find us @tttchallenge or tictactoechallenge.com. New challenges every Thursday!

It’s been a week already! Welcome back for another Tic Tac Toe Challenge! We were just floored by all the submissions from our inaugural challenge – be sure to check out the Picks here. As promised, I have another How to Wow video – this time featuring the distressed metal used in my design.

This week’s Featured designer is Corinne Blake (thecreativecompendium.com) and, no matter what three elements you choose, you can’t go wrong! When the Design Teams were setting up their boards and doing up our first projects, we all wondered if we could do all nine elements. Would it look too cluttered? Would something just not go together? Well, surprise, surprise! It CAN be done! And I did it!

It was a total accident. I started off with Masculine, Birthday, Hexagon. But then, realized that the hexagon was embossing and I used the diecut from Swirly Scribbles – that was also yellow. The background is wood, there’s a gray banner, and of course, some Enamel Glitter Dots embellishments (the best way to sneak in some glitter for a masculine card!). And, POOF! I was at all 9 elements!

Let’s take a minute to focus on the “wow” element – that hexagon piece that looks like distressed sheet metal. As are many “wow” techniques, this one is pretty simple. Simple enough I can show it to you in less than 3 minutes! Take a look:

You’re probably thinking that it can’t get much easier – there must be a catch? Nope! No catch. Just some sandpaper on your foil sheets. It even works great without the embossing folder! The key is to take your time. Let the ink dry, and sand gently and sparingly. You can always take more off, but it’s really hard to put back on!

Here’s a few other tips about this card

  • The Basic Gray bars are stamped off. I didn’t want solid – but more distressed. So, don’t fret if the whole image doesn’t stamp.
  • I wanted a bold swirly element – instead of the typical thread or twine, so I went for the Swirly Scribble. BUT, I didn’t want all the leaves. So, I simply snipped off the ones that I didn’t want!
  • Always heat-set your craft ink! Stamp, then heat set, THEN punch!
  • The Happy and Birthday are just freehanded. They’re not supposed to be perfect rectangles. That adds to the rustic look!

5 Ways to Add a Lace Look

The Remarkable Ink Big Blog Hop. Join us each month for inspiration and amazing projects using Stampin' Up! products. #pmretreat #stampinup #bloghop #rubberstamping #papercrafting

Welcome to the first ever Remarkable Ink Big Blog Hop! This month’s theme is Sale-a-Bration, so I thought I’d showcase 5 ways to add a lace look using the Delicate Details stamp set. It’s a lovely “accessory” stamp set that’s available FREE with $50 purchase during Sale-a-Bration!

Since this is an “accessory” stamp set (doesn’t have any sentiments) I paired it with another Sale-a-Bration set – Any Occasion. You’ll see that my samples really are great for any occasion — Lace isn’t reserved for the frilly and feminine!

You may just be starting the blog hop here at my blog or may be hopping over from elsewhere on the list. If you get off track at any time, the full lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all the projects.

Lace isn't just for the frilly & feminine. Today's 5 designs take you outside the box!Click To Tweet

Stretching My Creativity

Ok – here we go! 5 ways to add a lacy look. I came up with the title before I created the projects, so I was committed (or doomed to an eternity in the Retreat to come up with 5 samples). After I got past the first one, the rest came easy. I think the key tipping point was deciding to add in the Any Occasion stamp set for the sentiments. It helped set the tone and card size (I opted for our 3.5 x. 5 notecards).

There’s lots of watercoloring too… it really is quite fun to come up with washes and other ways to use our reinkers and aquapainters! Ok, so, enough blahblahblahblah…. Click on the plus signs to view each project.

1. Distressed & Hinted-at Lace
For the Remarkable Ink Big Blog Hop, March 2017. Featuring Delicate Details & Any Occasion stamp sets, Aquapainters, Gold Sequins Trim, Gold Wink of Stella #pmretreat #stampinup #foryou #greetingcard #handstamped

Click Image for Product Recipe

This is the design that kicked-off this whole collection. I wanted watercolor – bright & vivid. I wanted lace – hinted-at… UGH! It took me a couple of tries, but I finally arrived at gorgeous! Yes – that is Tempting Turquoise. Straight from the re-inker with just a hint of water added. Layer, dry. Layer, dry. Layer, dry. Then, the lace was stamped with Whisper White craft ink, and immediately covered in white embossing powder. I took a dry paintbrush to the powder to remove some of it from the lace, then heat-set it. I did stamp the “twine” stamp to align the sentiment, but then I glued some Linen Thread right over the top, with one of the Party Animal embellishments. I did add some Clear Wink of Stella to the lace in the end…

2. Lace In-The-Round
For the Remarkable Ink Big Blog Hop, March 2017. Featuring Delicate Details & Any Occasion stamp sets, Aquapainters, Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits, Gold Wink of Stella #pmretreat #stampinup #thankyou#greetingcard #handstamped

Click Image for Product Recipe

This one came together quick! Another watercolor wash using Tempting Turquoise reinker – this time, on Shimmery White Cardstock. Then, some ink spatter, and Gold Wink of Stella spatter. Dry it up quick with the Heat Tool. Then, I punched out a 2″ circle from some scrap and attached it to an acrylic block. I was able to work one of the lace patterns around the circle, and add the sentiment around the bottom (check out my Instagram feed). Genius! Stamp in Basic Black Archival Ink, add the Dragonfly and pop-up on some Stampin’ Dimensionals.

3. Lace in the Background
For the Remarkable Ink Big Blog Hop, March 2017. Featuring Delicate Details & Any Occasion stamp sets, Aquapainters, Gold Sequins Trim, Gold Wink of Stella #pmretreat #stampinup #wedding #weddingshower #greetingcard #handstamped

Click on Image for Product Recipe

I know you’ve seen it everywhere, but I’d be remiss if I didn’t use all of the Delicate Details stamps in a big block to create a background. Here, Whisper White Craft Ink on a Crumb Cake Notecard is a nice, light detail to set the background apart from the top layer. There’s some more Turquoise watercolor wash with gold and turquoise spatter. This time, a tiny bit of Calypso Coral – in both the hearts and the background strip. Oh, and how about some glitz with a small sequins flag? Wondering how I got that scallop? I used just the top of the Best Badge Punch! Nice hack, right?

4. Lace Gone Masculine…?
For the Remarkable Ink Big Blog Hop, March 2017. Featuring Delicate Details & Any Occasion stamp sets, Aquapainters,Urban Underground Embellishments, Gold Wink of Stella #pmretreat #stampinup #birthday #masculine #greetingcard #handstamped

Click Image for Product Recipe

I knew I wanted to get in a good guy look, so here we are. Crumb Cake notecard with watercoloring across the bottom. I opted for the more curly-cue stamps from Delicate Details. Does it count as lace? There’s some more Turquoise and gold splatter, and the Happy Birthday banner. To set off the top layer, I added a strip of Tangerine Tango to the top, and a screw head element from the Urban Underground embellishments.

5. Lace As An Architectural Feature
For the Remarkable Ink Big Blog Hop, March 2017. Featuring Delicate Details & Any Occasion stamp sets, Aquapainters, Gold Sequins Trim, Gold Wink of Stella #pmretreat #stampinup #hello #greetingcard #handstamped

Click Image for Product Recipe

This last look is pretty far out. I got some watercolor paper really wet on top and dripped the ink and let it roll. That’s what I got. Pretty neat!. Then, I added the two lace patterns – one on the base card, and one on the watercolor element. I thought I would use ribbon, but opted for the Gold Sequins Trim instead. I think the whole top has an architectural look to it. Kind of  like crown molding or the top of a column, or wood “gingerbread” detail (technically called a Spandrel). I used the Signo White Gel Pen to add some white detail, just for some pop.

Congratulating a Coworker (PPA304)

Do you invest in Stampin’ Up! reinkers, and then wonder why? It’s true, I’m not reinking my pads often – even with classes. So, what to do with that little investment taking up space in your craft area? You are going to love today’s design as it showcases one of the many ways you can use reinkers. I’m using modeling paste and our Daffodil Delight reinker, along with a “sleeper” tool – the stars (& hearts) stencil mask. It’s soo easy!

Changes are going smoothly here at Our Home in the Woods, but in the meantime I’ve got a sweet design for this sweet sketch by Lisa Ann Bernard. Oh, the possibilities are endless, but I needed a card for a coworker who is moving on to a new company and exiting opportunities. I will really miss working with him as he’s been an amazing leader. Well – our new Thoughtful Banners stamp set is the perfect way to highlight some of his best qualities, followed by a congrats sentiment from the Watercolor Wishes card kit.

Reinkers - not just for reinking! Add to modeling paste for amazing results.Click To Tweet
Pals Paper Arts 304 - play with us today! (www.palspaperarts.com)

Instead of giving you Mastery Tips today, I thought I’d reshare a video I did a while back on how to use modeling paste. I show a few ways to create your own stencils too. Since then, we’ve added in the stencil masks to the catalog. In this instance, I also just spread some of the colored paste onto a piece of cardstock, and let it dry. Then, I was able to cut out a shape (star) with framelits and the Big Shot. You could even use a Wink of Stella pen to add some glitter to the dried elements. I think you’ll be seeing more of these great textured elements from me – they’re so easy and add total WOW to a project!
