I’m Sorry For Being Absent

Anna’ Stampin’ Cave – I’m sorry for being absent.

Hi Loves! I’m sorry for being absent!

I know it’s been a while, shame on me!

The fabulous Autumn/Winter 2018 Catalogue launched on 5th September but with my health, things have taken a bit of a turn. But I tried since a couple of days to update the links and Autumn-Winter Catalogue pageAnd I will keep updating my blog gradually.

As many of you know, I’ve got Multiple Sclerosis and like with everything MS, the symptoms can vary from sufferer to sufferer. Some of us have symptoms so seriously affecting their everyday life, they end up in a wheelchair, unable to walk or carrying for themselves, others are blessed enough they can continue with their lives as usual with no symptoms at all.

My MS struggles

Well, I’m somewhere in between. My hands are numb, I suffer from chronic pain. I also have a discopathy (it’s a Polish terminology) or how it’s called here: spinal disc herniation (which is probably caused by inflammation caused by MS) – two bottom discs of my spine have degenerated and are causing me severe sharp pain and difficulty with moving around.

But I’m not giving up. I just listen to my body and do as much as it allows me to.b And if it means fewer and unplanned posts – let it be. I hope you understand.

But I do keep up with all my commitments towards my customers, so you are welcome to shop through my page. All qualified gifts will be sent as per usual.

Exclusive PDF Tutorials

HOST CODE for the month of September is TAXBTP9Q.

Orders of £50+ (excl. p&p) will receive from me:

International Highlights Winners Hop: You Are The Greatest

Anna’ Stampin’ Cave – International Highlights Winners Hop: You Are The Greatest

Hello and welcome to my stampin’ cave today.

First of all, I wanted to say a massive THANK YOU to all my followers and visitors to my blog for VOTING on my project for this month’s International Project Highlights! My little fridge magnet and card took the 5th place. I’m so humbled!

Anna' Stampin' Cave - Teacher's Thank You Gift Fridge Magnet and Thank You card using Tropical Chic Stamp Set and Tropical Thinlits Dies from Stampin' Up!

Every month, the ‘top ten’ get to blog hop with Kylie, using the same theme, which was a “Teachers Gifts”.

You Are The Greatest

For today’s project, I decided to go back to one of my favourite products and techniques – watercolour with Brusho® Crystal Colour.

Here’s my card –

Anna' Stampin' Cave - Teachers Thank You Card with Watercolour Wash using Brusho Crystal Colour, Little Twinkle Stamp Set & Tropical Chic Stamp Set from Stampin' Up!

Card dimensions:

  • Whisper White Thick cardstock: 11-6/8″ x 4-1/8″ scored in half at 5-7/8″ (29.7 x 10.5 cm scored in half at 14.8 cm)
  • Tranquil Tide cardstock panel: 3-7/8″ x 4-1/4″ (9.8 cm x 10.6 cm)
  • Lemon Lime Twist cardstock panel: 3-5/8″ x 5-13/16″ (9.2 cm x 12.2 cm)
  • Watercolour Paper panel: 3-1/2″ x 5-3/4″ (9 cm x 12 cm)
  • Whisper White cardstock for sentiment

My thought behind this card was to create one that could be suitable either for a female or male teacher.

I prepared my watercolour panel – it was bit larger than what I needed – with embossing buddy and stamped the ‘heart constellation’ using Versamark ink. I sprinkled it with a White Emboss Powder and heat set it with my Heat Tool.

When heat embossing on Watercolor Paper, because it’s a quite porous surface, you need to make sure all the image has transferred very well. It can take a little bit longer for the embossing powder to melt, so be patient.

Brusho Crystal Colour

They are high quality and highly pigmented paint powders. They are water-based and most of all completely non-toxic. For my card, I chose two colours to work with: Prussian Blue and Moss Green.

I added my water to the embossed heart, sprinkled it with Moss Green and using the aqua painter I moved the water around.

Before adding Prussian Blue I wet the panel under a running water. I wasn’t too concerned and didn’t worry too much that the Mossy Green will run. Once my panel was really wet I sprinkled it richly with Prussian Blue.

I moved the colour tilting the panel in each direction dabbing off any colour that got into the heart – I wanted to keep it green. Once my panel was dry I spritz it with water (very selectively avoiding the heart) and added more Prussian Blue with a few Moss Green areas for the contrast and moved it around with aqua painter again. Once happy with results, and when the panel was still slightly damp, I sprinkled some more of Prussian Blue and let it dry without moving the paper. I love the effect it left on the panel.

Assembling the card

For the final touch, I took a Whisper White Craft Ink Refill and with a help of clear block and aqua painter, I splashed white all over the panel.

Once my panel was dry I cut it to the size but I saved my colourful off cuts to use them later for some accents.

I adhered Tranquil Tide panel to the card base with liquid glue. Next, I mounted watercolour piece onto a Lemon Lime Twist panel and adhered them both to the base.

The sentiment comes from Tropical Chic Stamp Set. I stamped it in Tranquil Tide ink and punched out with Tailored Tag Punch. I have added it to my card with few dimensionals.

Final touches

For some interest, I stamped a cluster of stars inside of my card, in a bottom left corner. Besides that, I also took one of the watercolour strips that left, cut it at an angle and add it to the inside as well. I think it looks pretty cool.

I also decided to decorate the envelope with the same elements as the inside of my card: clusters of stars and another watercolour strip cut at an angle.

And that’s it from me for today. I hope you’ve enjoyed visiting my blog. Do you like the card I created? I would love to hear your thoughts.

DistINKtive – A New Kind Of Stamps From Stampin’ Up!

Anna’ Stampin’ Cave – A new kind of stamp

Stampin’ Up! knows there is always room for innovation, which is why we’ve trademarked a new style of the red rubber stamp. Named DistINKtive, these stamps start with a photograph, which an amazing Stampin’ Up! manufacturing team in Kanab, Utah then turns into a photorealistic red rubber stamp!

You probably remember the first of the distINKtive stamp set that was introduced during Sale-a-bration called Heartfelt Blooms.

Well, with this new catalogue Stampin’ Up! decided to bring some more of these incredible distINKtive stamp sets.

Distinktive stamps create different opacities in a single stamped image for a realistic depth and intensity.

With distinktive stamps, you can add monochromatic dimension and artistic flair to your stamping.

This innovative stamp style allows you to create images with depth by simply inking and stamping once. How cool is that!

Stampin’ Up! has a very informative video about how these amazing stamps work here.


UPDATE

There was a number of products that due to unexpected shipping delays weren’t available when the catalogue went live. But last night Stampin’ Up! announced that some of them are available now:

So I’m happy to announce that the following products are now in stock and available for purchase.

As for Stampin’ Blends, only current colours are back in stock. Thank you for your patience. I will let you know as soon as I have more information about the availability of the new Stampin’ Blends colours.

Host Code for the month of June is XEYXTEPE. Orders of £50+ (excl. p&p) will receive a Surprise Thank You Gift from me. You won’t be disappointed!

Thank You Gifts will be shipped in the first 2 weeks of the following month they were earned (mid-July).
