International Highlights Winners Blog Hop

Anna' Stampin' Cave - Soft Sea Foam & Coastal Cabana Watercolour Wash with a touch of gold using Artfully Folded Stamp Set by Stampin' Up!

Anna’ Stampin’ Cave – International Highlights Winners Blog Hop

I was so absolutely thrilled that Kylie Bertucci has chosen me to hop amongst the top ten winners of her International Blog Highlight from June.

Every month, the ‘top ten’ get to blog hop with Kylie, using the same theme, and this time the theme was Friendship.

A month ago I’ve used Detailed With Love Stamp Set. This time, however, I decided to use beautiful host stamp set called Artfully Folded.Anna' Stampin' Cave - Soft Sea Foam & Coastal Cabana Watercolour Wash with a touch of gold using Artfully Folded Stamp Set by Stampin' Up!

Artfully Folded card dimensions:

  • Soft Sea Foam: 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)
  • Coastal Cabana cardstock: 3-3/4″ x 5″ (9.6 cm x 12.7 cm)
  • Watercolour Paper: 3″ x 4-3/4″ (7.6 cm x 12 cm)
  • Coastal Cabana strip for the sentiment: 1/4′ x 2-3/4″ (0.6 cm x 7 cm)

First I heat embossed the image from Artfully Folded Stamp Set on watercolour paper, using Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder.

Once the image was heat embossed, I took an Aqua Painter and using Soft Sea Foam ink pad I started adding the colour to my image. I also added some of the Coastal Cabana ink to the image.

Next, I took a transparency sheet that comes with photopolymer stamps and used it as my palette: I squashed some of both colours onto it, added some water from Aqua Painter and pressed it to my watercolour panel. I love how it turned out.

I took the Coastal Cabana panel and stamped it with various images from the set using Versamark ink and adhered it to the base at a wonky angle. Next, I also added my watercolour panel.

On a strip of Coastal Cabana, I heat embossed a sentiment from this same stamp set (be your own kind of beautiful) and added to the card with dimensionals.

Kylie Bertucci’s International Project Highlights

Anna’ Stampin’ Cave – Kylie Bertucci’s International Project Highlights

Thanks for coming to my blog today! We are being highlighted internationally by Kylie Bertucci and you are able to vote for my project. The top ten winners will get to be part of an international blog hop so please vote for my project. My project is under number  27!  You can do it here or use a button at the end of my post.

A theme for this highlight is ‘Friendship’. So I thought I will use some of the new products to create my card.

To create this card I used the sketch from the Global Design Project:

I slightly re-engineered it though (lol)

And here’s my card:

Anna' Stampin' Cave - friendship rustic card using Stampin' Up! Detailed with Love Stamp Set

Friendship card dimensions:

  • Very Vanilla 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)
  • Very Vanilla regular cardstock for stamping
  • Wood Textures DSP Stack: 2″ x 4-1/8″ (5.08 cm x 10.5 cm)
  • 5/8″ Burlap Ribbon 7″ approx (17.8 cm)

First, I created the base. Next, I cut DSP at a slight angle – the narrower end measures 1-2/8″ (3.2 cm). I adhered it to the base using snail adhesive.

Now the Stamparatus came in handy. I wanted to create a little border where DSP ended. I placed my card in the Stamparatus at an angle so the grid at the Samparatus base and the edge of DSP created ‘one line’.

I placed the border stamp where I wanted it to stamp, and using the plate I lift it up. I inked my stamp with a Pool Party Ink Pad and made my first impression. Now taking advantage of hinges, I moved the plate one spot in the right direction, inked and stamped again. Moved it, inked and stamped it one more time. Perfect alignment each time!

Next, I took the Petal Burst embossing folder and placed it on the bottom part of the card base, so it ended just by my stamped Pool Party border and run it through the Big Shot.

For the sentiment, I chose ‘Life is sweeter with friends like you’ also from Detailed With Love Stamp Set. I thought it would fit well. I stamped it in a Pool Party on a piece of regular Very Vanilla cardstock and next die cut it using the second largest oval die from Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies.

I took a piece of burlap ribbon, fold it in half and adhered under the oval. Next, using dimensionals I mounted it on my card.

I truly hope you’ve enjoyed coming to my blog today.

Now, make sure you head over to Kylie’s blog to check all lovely projects and vote for your favourites. Hope my project will be among them. My project is under number 27!
