Hi stamping friends, my share today is from the Petal Passion Memories Stickers found on page 24 of the Occasions Catalogue. The Memories & More Card Pack is designed for scrapping but with it coordinating with the Petal Passion Suite – it’s great for card making too.

Sandi’s Tips & Tricks for the Petal Passions Memories Sticker Card:

I chose a background card from the pack and cut it down to 3-7/8 x 5-1/8 before matting it onto a Basic Black piece 4 x 5-1/4 and then to a a Blushing Bride Card Base of 4-1/4 x 11, scored and folded at 5-1/2

I used my Stampin Blends to colour the stickers (flowers and hearts) and then attached them with Dimensionals to add some depth to the card.

The Sentiment is from “Lovely Wishes and I heat embossed it in white on a scrap of black before trimming it down to size and attaching it with Dimensionals.

Epic Guitar with Brusho

Feed Ads by FeedBlitz
powered byad choices

We are taking a walk on the wild side today with Epic Guitar with Brusho.  Couple of days ago, I cleaned off my stamping space, taped down a BIG trash bag, cut up a bunch of watercolour paper, turned up the tunes and played with Brusho.

Epic Guitar with Brusho card by Sandi @ stampinwithsandi.com. #stampinup #stampinwithsandi #sandimaciver #brushoart #brushocards #stampinupcardideas #handstampedcards

What is Brusho?  It’s light powder crystals full if highly pigmented colour activated by water.

You will find it in the Occasions catalogue on page 26 along with some basic instructions and a fun stamp set.  The best thing to do, is like me, protect your work surface, get a bunch of watercolour paper ready (I embossed some images on some), and just play.

I won’t lie, it’s messy.  I have played with it before years ago and I don’t bring it out often because I’m not fond of the mess (it’s right up there with glitter for me, haha)…but it does make the most awesome backgrounds

Tips and Tricks for the Epic Guitar With Brusho Card:

I made sure I had a few full Spritzers handy, like half a dozen!  I used my Aqua painter to make two circles on the paper, sprinkled on (a lot) of brusho, in yellow and red, and then blasted it with the spritzer.  The red I went straight down, for the yellow, I held up a piece of paper to protect the rest of my table and angled the spritzer so it shot across the paper spreading the pigment out.

I did about 20 sheets so I’ll have more to share in the future, but for putting this card together here is what I did:

Epic Guitar with Brusho card by Sandi @ stampinwithsandi.com. #stampinup #stampinwithsandi #sandimaciver #brushoart #brushocards #stampinupcardideas #handstampedcards

I trimmed the watercolor paper to 3-3/4 x 5 and then stamped the sentiment down the right side with Memento Tuxedo Black.  I white heat embossed the sentiment on a scrap of black and trimmed it to fit before popping it up on Dimensionals.

I attached it to a mat of Basic Black 3-7/8 x 5-1/8 and then to a 4-1/4 x 11, scored at 5-1/2 Thick Whisper White card base.

I used the second from smallest Stitched Shapes framelits to die cut the black circle and attach that with Dimensionals as well.

The guitar is from Epic Celebration in the Sale-a-bration catalogue (earn for free).  I stamped it in Memento Tuxedo Black on a 1-1/2 x 4 piece of whisper white and coloured it with my watercolor pencils before cutting it out and attaching it to the card.

The yellow stars are Regals Enamel Shapes and the black ones I coloured with a sharpie.

Kind of a RAD card don’t you think, haha…. great for the young Rock Stars in your life (or the older Air Guitarists as in our house, haha).

Amazing You Rose Cards

Hi Stamping friends, my card share today is Amazing You Rose Cards combing the Amazing you Sale-a-bration items and the Petal Palette bundle.

Amazing You Rose cards created by Sandi at stampinwithsandi.com #stampinup #amazingyou #Petal Palette #stampinwithsandi #sandimaciver #handmadecards #stampinupcardideas #handstampedcards

_____________________________________________________________
The layout for today’s cards are for the TGIF Challenge

and the colour inspiration is from the Card Concept Challenge #84


_____________________________________________________________

Sandi’s Tips & Tricks for the Amazing You Rose Cards:

I started by stamping the rose image in Memento Black Ink onto a piece of Whisper White and colouring the image with my Stampin Blends.  To make the light and dark Pink Pirouette pop a bit more, I incorporated the light Calypso Coral for the darker shadows

I used the Pool Party watercolour pencil and my blender pen to add a slight blue background before attaching it to a Pear Pizzazz mat.

The card front is embossed with the Petal Pair Embossing Folder before attaching it to the card base and then the art piece was attached on the left side.

I die cut the “celebrate” from a piece of Gold Foil Sheet and attached it with multipurpose glue.

Then I stamped the “You” onto a scrap of Pink Pirouette, snipped it down to size and added it with Dimensionals.

I Love coordinating envelopes don’t you?  I used one of our retired Kraft Envelopes and Gold embossed the rose image on the back.  You could make an envelope with our Crumb Cake  card stock and the envelope punch board.

For this card the instructions are pretty much the same, just a different embossing folder in the background, a different sentiment and a Whisper White envelope stamped in Pink Pirouette.

Cake Soiree with Watercolour Wash

Hi Stamping friends I have a new video for you today, Cake Soiree with Watercolour Wash.  I was going to do a “My favourites” list for you over the weekend and then I thought – Hey, lists are kind of boring!  How about a video with each favourite instead.  So here is #1 – the Cake Soiree Bundle.

Cake Soiree with Watercolour Wash card by Sandi at stampinwithsandi.com #stampinup #cakesoiree, stampinwithsandi #sandimaciver #handmadebirthdaycards #stampinupcardideas #canadianstampinupdemonstrator

The Cake Soiree suite is on pages 12 and 13 of the Occasions Catalogue with a stamp and die set.  There are 16 dies to play with including – this beautiful cake stand, the rose outline and the lovely leafy branches.

You can see Stampin Up’s entire line of suites here

Layout for today’s card is from “Case This Sketch” challenge for this week.

When I tried putting a frame in the background I found the card a little busy, so if you look closely, I white embossed the flower and branch from the stamp set.  By Adding a colour wash in Lemon Lime Twist and Bermuda Bay I achieved my subtle background effect.

Stampin Up Heart Happiness

With Valentines just around the corner, I wanted to share another new stamp set with you, Stampin Up Heart Happiness.  It’s new in the Occasions Spring Catalogue on page 20

Stampin Up Heart Happiness card by Sandi at stampinwithsandi.com #stampinup #stampinwithsandi #valentinescards #handstampedcards #stampinupcardideas

There is a beautiful collection of hearts in this stamp set and for today’s card I decided to combine my love of colouring to create this clean and simple card.

Sandi’s Tips & Tricks for the Stampin Up Heart Happiness Card.

  • I started by stamping the floral heart onto whisper white card stock with my Archival basic Black inkpad.  I heat set it to make sure it was dry.
  • I used my Stampin Blends to color the image, Old Olive, Pink Pirouette and Rich Razzleberry

Stampin Up Heart Happiness card by Sandi at stampinwithsandi.com #stampinup #stampinwithsandi #valentinescards #handstampedcards #stampinupcardideas

  • Next, I used the Sweet & Sassy Framelits to cut out the heart and a little bit larger heart in Pink Pirouette for a mat.
  • I folded a Thick Whisper White card stock base and then stamped the image across the card base in the black.  I again heat set this piece to make sure it was dry.
  • I used the sentiment from the “Sure do Love You” set and white heat embossed it on a piece of Basic Black card stock.
  • I used Snail Adhesive to attach the sentiment to the card base
  • Attach the heart to the mat and then use Dimensionals to attach to the card.
