A fun summer color combination for Global Design Project

I have not participated in an online challenge in a very long time! So, when I saw this weeks Global Design Project color challenge I knew it was time to participate!  The colors for the challenge are Pool Party, Lemon Lime Twist, and Mellon Mambo.  This fun summer color combination will make you wish for bright flowers, limeade, and a pool!!

A fun summer color combination

Does this fun color combination not scream Summer!! I know you are nodding yes!!! Yes it does!!   Be sure to check out the fabulous creations by the Design Team!!!  They sure are full of talent!!!

I was super excited to see a new frame stamp set in the upcoming Annual Catalog! Swirly Frames Stamp Set (146519) has circles, rectangles, and a square.  I love the whimsical feel!

Swirly Frames was paired it with the Varied Vases (146644) and the Petal Passion Designer Series Paper! (45589)

Tuesday I shared a super sweet card that featured the Varied Vases Stamp Set! If you happen to miss it! Here you go!

Love this fun summer color combination for #GDP137. Melon Mambo, Pool Party, and Lemon Lime Twist

  • I have really enjoyed the Petal Passion Designer Series Paper.  One of my favorite things is to color the paper with Stampin’ Blends.
  • I used my pool party light and dark.  Then because I did not have Lemon Lime Twist in a Stampin’ Blend, I used Chartreuse and Lime Peal in Prismacolor.

Love this fun summer color combination for #GDP137. Melon Mambo, Pool Party, and Lemon Lime Twist

  • The circle frame was Stamped in Melon Mambo.  Then die cut with one of the Layering Circles. And backed with a Pool Party Scalloped Circle from the same Layering Dies
  • The flower was stamped in Basic Black.  The stamped with the fill in stamp in Melon Mambo after stamping off once
  • The final step was to add the sweet sentiment!  I just think this font is the most adorable ever…

I love decorating envelopes!  For this one I added the sweet flower in stair step fashion on one side!

Varied Vases and Swirly Frame come together for #GDP137

Bon Voyage Retiring In-Colors

Stamping Blog Hop

Welcome to the Remarkable InkBig Blog Hop for April 2018. This month our theme is Bon Voyage Retiring In-Colors!  You may just be starting the blog hop here at my blog – Jennifer Spiller at Westside Paper Creations or may have come from the person previous to me on the list. If you get off track at any time, the full lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all the projects.

Bon Voyage 2016-2018 In-Colors you will be missed

I have so enjoyed using these beautiful In-Colors. In so many ways, I’m kinda sad to see them go…on the other had I am super excited about all the New Colors coming soon in the Annual Catalog .  More about that on another day!  Today, we are saying Bon Voyage to the retiring In-Colors, which includes Dapper Denim, Emerald Envy, Sweet Sugarplum, and Peekaboo Peach.  Flirty Flimango is also part of this color family. But, it is staying around for a few more years! Yeppie for that!!  I decided that the Faux Batik technique would be perfect to show off the beauty of this In-Color collection . I just pulled out a bunch of stamp sets and started playing with the technique .Then when I was finished I made a few cards out of the panels.  This technique works best with stamps that have more of a solid image. If you would like to know more about Faux Batik check out this post here.

Faux Batik

  • The colors used for the Faux Batik effect are Peekaboo Peach and Sweet Sugarplum
  • The stamps came from Petal Passion, Painted Harvest, and Oh So Eclectic stamp sets
  • I liked the Faux Batik so much I decided to keep the card quite simple so it could shine
  • The silver thread and copper thread adds a little texture without taking away from the background

The Faux Batik effect was created by

  1. Stamping and heat embossing images onto tissue paper
  2. Layering the tissue paper over a piece of Shimmery White paper .
  3. Using a baby  wipe sponge color onto the tissue paper.
  4. The color will transfer to the paper everywhere you add ink except in the embossed areas .
  5. To learn more about the Faux Batik technique, check out this post!  To see other Faux Batik cards click here and here

Faux Batik

  • This background is made with Dapper Denim and three different sizes of circles. One from Waterfront , One from Oh So Eclectic, and One from Painted Harvest
  • Where you can see the ink went over some circles. That is because I layered my embossed tissue paper to create the effect .
  • The word celebrate is layered up by stacking three Dapper Denim one Peekaboo Peach on top. The adhesive sheets makes this process super easy

Faux Batik

  • These little trees from the Waterfront set are perfect for the Faux Batik technique!
  • This time I used Emerald Envy and Peekaboo Peach to creat the Batik effect
  • After it dried, the trees were cut out with the Stiched Shapes Dies
  • Layering with crumb cake and the Seaside Embossing Folder
  • The dollie was sponged with both Emerald Envy and Peekaboo Peach

I hope each of you are having a wonderful Sunday Afternoon . I will be cleaning up a bit this afternoon. The kitchen looks like a tornado hit it. So that’s definitely on the to-do list.  Then getting some cards together to send out next week.  It is rainy here today, which lends itself greatly to staying dry and creating! Which is what I have been doing most of the day! Yesterday, was lovely here as we spent the afternoon at St. Bernhard in Cullman at their annual Blooming Festival.  Blooming Festival

Remember to be creative to be creative it is good for the soul

It’s a colorful day

Some times  you just have to create your own color!  The days have been cool and gray here in Alabama.  So today, I decided it was time to create my own Spring!!  I love the colors of spring! Bright yellows, pinks, corals, and shades of green . It is just a happy time of year.  To recreate my Spring day, I chose the Petal Passion Designer Series Paper .  This paper is so fun to color!

Petal Passion

Petal Passion Designer Series Paper

I truly love this paper!  The patterns are modern and classy!! The most perfect combination for Designer Series Paper!!!   If you choose to color the paper it completely changes the look of the paper . My favorite way to color this paper is with Stampin’ Blends.  The Stampin’ Blends are Stampin’ Up! version of Alcohol Markers. They will be available soon! Due to popularity they are currently sold out!  But, they will be back soon! Stay tune for more!!

Petal Passion Card

  • The card base is Powder Pink cut at 4 1/4 inches and scored at 5 1/2 inches.  I call this the Brian way, cause he always makes his cards this way!  And Brian was the first person I noticed to do this years ago.
  • The layer is Tranquil Tide
  • After coloring the Petal Passion Designer Series Paper, I had a 6×4 piece,  it was cut down to fit the card.
  • The final step was to pop up the sentiment from  the Color Me Happy Stamp Set

You guys know I love to decorate my envelopes . I did something a little different for this envelope!

Petal Palette Stamp Set

  • I made a square using a t-ruler and a pencil .
  • The second step was to add the stamped images from Petal Palette stamp set
  • Then, I added the square with a fine line pen.  After adding the ink lines, I erased the pencil lines
  • You can see some pencil lines within the square . That is for the address.  They will help me right straight . After I address the envelope, I will erase the pencil lines

You say it’s your birthday….

Happiest of days! The Inking Royalty blog hop is here!!! And we are celebrating Birthdays!!

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s February Blog Hop! Today’s Blog Hop today is filled to the brim with projects that celebrate birthdays. The opening line from The Beatles’ “Birthday” song ran through our heads as we joyfully created the birthday-themed creations we share with you today.  After you read my post, I hope you’ll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.

My favorite birthday set is Happiest of days  So, of course I had to use it today for the blog hop!!! I love the sweet feel of this set! It is also perfect for coloring! Witch makes me very happy 😍

There is so much wonderfulness in this set! The adorable cake! The sweet presents! And the extra elements! Not to mention how perfect the sentiments are!

  • Using Stampin’ Blends I colored the dots in the designer series paper, the paper doily, the flower, and the leaves .
  • The next step was to add texture by adding layers of ribbon, bakers twine, and paper doily.
  •  Finally the sentiment is popped up with the layers of ovals!

I decided that because we were celebrating birthdays that I would decorate a matching envelope!

The decorated envelope brings all the happiness of the Birthday moment to reality!

The second card, I decided to do a little extra coloring to completely change the look of the designer series paper.  The Petal Passion Designer Series Paper is perfect to alter with color.

This paper is a must have from the Occasions Catalog! I love it as is! But, it is also loads of fun to add color to the paper making completely unique for your card!!

  • By coloring the background pool party it completely changes the feel of the Designer Series Paper
  • The layers of texture add a Vintage feel to the card
  • The final delicate touch was to add  the Tutti Frutti sequins

Here again I used some of the extra elements from the stamp set to make a super special envelope!
