Sale-a-bration is coming to an end and today I’ve got for you beautiful, clean &  simple card using Amazing You Stamp Set and Celebrate You Thinlits Dies – both of which you can still earn FREE (Sale-a-bration ends on 31st March).

But there’s also something you may don’t know about Celebrate You Thinlits Dies – they are carrying over to the new Stampin’ Up! 2018-2019 Annual Catalogue!! But why pay for something if you can gave it for FREE, right?

Anna' Stampin' Cave - Let's Celebrate Clean &  Simple Card using Stampin' Up! Amazing You Stamp Set - Powder Pink, Berry Burst & Gold FoilLet’s Celebrate card dimensions:

– Berry Burst 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)
– Whisper White cardstock: 3-5/8″ x 5-3/8″ (9.3 cm x 13.6 cm)
– Whisper White cardstock (for inside): 3″ x 4-5/8″ (7.6 cm x 11.7 cm)
– A piece of watercolour paper for Stamping
– A strip of Gold Foil cardstock for die cutting
– Gold 1/8″ Ribbon: 8″ approximately
Anna' Stampin' Cave - Let's Celebrate Clean &  Simple Card using Stampin' Up! Amazing You Stamp Set - Powder Pink, Berry Burst & Gold FoilFirst, I stamped my flower on a piece of watercolour paper in Versamark, heat embossed it in gold, and fussy cut it (without leaves).
To paint the flower I’ve used aqua painter. For the first layer of colour I chose Powder Pink ink pad. Once it dried, I’ve used Berry Burst ink pad to add more depth to the petals.

Anna' Stampin' Cave - Let's Celebrate Clean &  Simple Card using Stampin' Up! Amazing You Stamp Set - Powder Pink, Berry Burst & Gold FoilI took a Whisper White panel, decided where my flower will be placed, and using Stamp-a-ma-jig I stamped leaves in Lemon Lime Twist. Next, I stamped over them with Pear Pizzazz to darken them a bit and also stamped more leaves in Pear Pizzaz.

Anna' Stampin' Cave - Let's Celebrate Clean &  Simple Card using Stampin' Up! Amazing You Stamp Set - Powder Pink, Berry Burst & Gold Foil

Using dry brush I picked some of that Berry Burst ink, flicked it over the Whisper White panel and assembled my card before adding the flower.
I cut a piece of Gold 1/8″ Ribbon (briefly 8″), added it underneath the flower and adhered it to the card base with dimensionals.

For the sentiment I die cut the word “celebrate” from Celebrate You Thinlits Dies in gold foil and also stamped “Let’s” from Amazing You Stamp Set in Powder Pink next to the flower. And that’s my card for today.

Emboss Resist Watercolour Background With Beautiful Peacock Stamp Set

Anna’ Stampin’ Cave – Emboss Resist Watercolour Background With Beautiful Peacock Stamp Set

Hello everyone and thank you for visiting my little stampin’ cave.

Today, I’m playing along with Global Design Project and their #GDP126 Sketch Challenge. And I’ve got for you really simple, yet beautiful card, using FREE Sale-a-bration stamp set: Beautiful Peacock. I don’t know exactly why, but I really love this set, even though it’s completely not in my style.

But except the peacock image, its got all those beautiful, swirly stamps, which supposed to be its tail. And I couldn’t resist using one of these for creating a beautiful, emboss resist watercolour background for my card.

Anna' Stampin' Cave - Emboss Resist Watercolour background using Beautiful Peacock Stamp Set

Dimensions:

  • Lemon Lime Twist 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: 3-7/8″ x 5-1/8″
  • Shimmery White cardstock: 3-3/4″ x 5″
  • Whisper White cardstock for die cutting
  • Copper Trim: around 2-1/2″

First, I took Shimmery White panel and dust it with embossing buddy. Next, using Versamark, I stamped peacock’s tail all over the panel. sprinkled with white embossing powder and heat set it using a heat tool.

I pulled out three inkpads I wanted to use: Lemon Lime Twist, Bermuda Bay and Tranquil Tide. To prepare my colour palettes I squeezed each inkpad in the middle lightly to transfer ink from foam to the lid and opened the inkpads.

I wet the entire Shimmery White panel, using aqua painter, and next, I started adding my colours: Lemon Lime Twist at the top, Bermuda Bay in the middle and Tranquil Tide on the bottom. I let the colours to bleed into each other.

I love to watch how embossed images resist the ink – it’s like magic

Remember, watercolours dry lighter, so once my piece was dry, I added more water and more colour, and repeat the process until I was happy.

Anna' Stampin' Cave - Emboss Resist Watercolour background using Beautiful Peacock Stamp Set

The sentiment I chose comes from Petal Palette  Stamp Set. I stamped in on a piece of Whisper White cardstock with Versamark and heat embossed it in copper. Next, I die-cut it using the second smallest square die from Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies.

When assembling the card, I decided to turn my panel upside down – it looked so much better with Tranquil Tide on top.

Instead of a ribbon or twine from the sketch, I swap it for a Copper Trim. I cut briefly 2-1/2 piece and I pulled it apart to create this cool mat for my sentiment. I add it to the card with dimensionals.

Stampin’ Dreams Blog Hop – Party Pandas Valentine

Anna’ Stampin’ Cave Party Pandas Valentine For Stampin’ Dreams Blog Hop

Hello everyone! Welcome to the monthly Stampin’ Dreams Blog Hop. This month’s theme is Love. You are currently visiting Anna Krol from United Kingdom. I hope you enjoy my project. It’s my first time ‘hopping’ with Stampin’ Dreams crew. And I’ve got for you the most adorable love card EVER! Even if I do say so myself haha

Party Pandas card dimensions:

  • Basic Black 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)
  • Lemon Lime Twist cardstock: 3-1/2″ x 5-1/4″ (8.9 cm x 13.4 cm)
  • Whisper White cardstock: 2-1/2″ x 4″ (6.4 cm x 10.2 cm)
  • Watercolour Paper
  • Whisper White cardstock for the inside of the card: 3-1/2″ x 5-1/4″ (8.9 cm x 13.4 cm)

When I saw a theme of this month’s blog hop I instantly knew which stamp set I will use. Isn’t this panda adorable?! Especially with its slightly oversized heart balloon!

The base of my card is standard A6 size in Basic Black. For the first layer I took a piece of Lemon Lime Twist cardstock, spritz it with water to soften the fibres, and run it through the Big Shot with lovely Ruffled Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. I adhered it to the card base with Fast Fuse

Next, I inked my panda (I didn’t ink the balloon part) with Black Memento ink and stamped it onto Whisper White. With help of Stamp-a-ma-jig I positioned and stamped the sentiment ‘love you’ from the same stamp set.

Using watercolour paper and Brusho Crystal Colour in Brilliant Red and Gamboge, I created a watercolour wash. Once it dried, I took the heart die from Mini Treat Bag Thinlits Dies, die-cut my balloon and added some shimmer with Clear Wink of Stella.

I glued my heart to the panda, where the balloon was and adhered the whole piece to the card base using dimensionals.

I’m really happy how this card turned out! Love the colours, dimension but most of all this adorable panda. And I hope that my card inspired you & brightened your day. I would love for you to see the list below & hop through all of the lovely artists on the list to see all our projects. You don’t want to miss any!
