Climbing Orchids…

Orchids are one of the most beautiful flowers on this earth! They are so unique in the way the grow and produce flowers. And the blooms are so much worth the wait! But, if you are not the green thumb type (lets all check our thumbs) or simply not patient enough to wait on the blooms to come around.  Stampin’ Up! has a beautiful stamp set that is so fun to use. And is amazingly real looking…

Climbing Orchid Bundle

This wonderful stamp set and dies  has everything you need to make two different types of orchids.  Just add your favorite color and you are set!  Let me just say this fount is to die for gorgeous!!! I’m completely in love with the Enjoy Today!!

 


This sample from Stampin’ Up! is amazing!!!

Can you believe that is paper… It look so real!!

  • The background is faux marbling! This is such a fun technique using shaving cream and ink. I used a single color Pear Pizzazz for the marbling
  • Each orchid bloom is stamped in Powder Pink.  The tiny centers of the large blooms are stamped with  So Saffron and then Flirty Flamingo on top.
  • The smaller bloom center is stamped in So Saffron with the tiny dots in Flirty Flamingo. Then die cut with the companion die.
  • The sentiment is stamped with versamark ink then heat embossed with silver embossing powder.

Let’s be friends forever….

Friendship is one of the great joys in life.  It is something that should be celebrated!  Eastern Places bundle has a great stamp that celebrates all things friends.  “let’s be friends forever”  This sentiment is just so perfect!!!

Eastern Places Bundle

This bundle is so much fun! All the different dies work together to make fun flowers and medallions. Then the stamp set coordinates with the dies to add accents and different shapes to the dies! What fun 😍

  • The background is  faux marbling made just like yesterday’s cards.  Using shaving cream, ink, embossing paste, and a catalyst.
  •  Square cards are all the rage right now!!! Didn’t know that??? I just declared it because, I have been making lots of square cards lately.
  • The vellum was die cut with one on the Eastern Places dies. Then also cut out with the layering circle die that was just slightly larger.
  • After heat embossing the sentiment with silver embossing powder, I added a little glue behind the letters and added the Lemon Lime Twist circle.  This helped the sentiment stand out and it gave me a place to add stampin’ dimensionals.

This “all the rage” square card is 5 1/2 by 5 1/2 .   The paper was cut so that it measures 5 1/2 inches on one side and 11 inches on the other.  And is scored at 5 1/2 inches.  The layers (working inwards) are Card base (Basic Gray) 5 1/2 by 5 1/2 after scoring and folding as above,   Lemon Lime Twist  5 1/4 by 5 1/4 inches, Soft Sky 5 1/8 by 5 1/8 inches, Silver embossed 5 5/8 by 5 5/8 inches, Lemon Lime Twist 4 1/2 by 4 1/2 inches,  faux marbling 4 3/8 by 4 3/8 inches

Faux Marbling technique

So life has been a little crazy.  The “other” has been sick. Work has been wild. And messed up internet services.  Has kept me away from you guys for a few days! I’m happy to be back sharing with you today….

I am a technique junkie. Love trying new techniques and revisiting an old technique.  The Shaving Cream marbling Technique has been around for quite a while.  But, recently it has made a reappearance.  One of those everything old is new again things… This technique is loads of fun!! It contains just the right amount of messy!  There are may ways of doing this technique. I experimented with using catalyst to pick up colors and placing them in specific areas for the marbling look.  I also made some just single colored marbled paper.   After I was done making my paper. I set out to make a few cards.  If you fallow my Instagram then you have seen a few sneak peeks of Christmas cards using the paper I made.  You can find me @westsidepaper This month I am filling my Instagram with Christmas in July.  Each day I’m making a new Christmas Card.

I love soft color combinations. And this technique lends itself well to soft colors because often you will achieve a muted look especially when using a catalyst.  For today’s cards I used Soft Sky, Daffodil Delight, and Lemon Lime Twist.  Daffodil Delight and Lemon Lime Twist are not necessarily soft colors. But, they become muted versions of themselves when marbling.

I have been working on my college abilities.

 I love the layers of texture you can create with just stamps.  This  was the perfect opportunity to practice!!

#practicemakesprogress

  • After marbling the paper I added very thin layer of embossing paste in certain areas to create even more texture and depth of color
  • The next step was to add the college elements with versa mark and embossing powder or color ink and clear embossing powder.  The specks are just stamped in peekaboo peach
  • The stamps for the college came from two sets Hello Friend and Touches of Textures
  • Finally adding the fussy cut hello

The second card I decided to keep quite simple!

 Just adding a few elements to help the background shine❤

  • These soft colors really work well for sympathy cards. They just seem soothing
  • The Rose Wonder Stamp Set and Rose Garden Dies  has some amazing elements that are perfect for clean and simple cards
  • The silver thread adds just a little touch of shimmer
