Creating with others

I love when I get to meet new paper crafters! This past weekend I got the opertunity to introduce three ladies to the wonderful world of card making.  A sweet friend asked me to give a class for her and her friends. She had been to a few classes and wanted to share paper crafting with friends.  So we decided on a date and stamps we would be using.  She loves the Glamper Campers. So, this was our “theme”  It just so happens that Stampin’ Up! has two different camper stamps!

One camper is in the You’re Sublime stamp set (retiring) and the other is from the Glamper Greetings stamp set 

You’re Sublime Stamp Set

I just love this little rounded camper!!! We dressed this little guy up with mint stripes and a pink door!!!  

I’m a little late to the game but, the Playful Palette Designer Series Paper Stack is Awesome!!!   I bought this paper stack specifically for these ladies and this class. Well,  I am in love with the patterns and the fun cor combinations!!! It is happy happy happy papper?  And right now it is on sale because it will be leaving us soon!!!  You don’t want to miss out on this fun paper!!

Global Design Project #GDP33

The design team over at Global Design Project has been hosting wonderful challenges for us all.  I just love all the wonderful projects brought to us each week by Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from all over the world!!   The latest challenge is a color challenge.   Night of Navy, Calypso Coral, and Sahara Sand.  This is a fabulous color combination that can be quite springy, but can lean it other seasons as well.  As I was making my card, I thought my background would make a fab. card for a Auburn fan.  So, it just might come back around when football season rolls around.  (Though, I think I will just let someone else make that card ….hummm…but, the idea is rolling around in the head)  Anyway, on with the color challenge.  Global Design Project 033

When thinking about the card I wanted to make.  I could see stripes of Night of Navy and Calypso Coral.  I had several different different choices of how to make these stripes.  I could have used masking, or the striped decorative mask or even strips of paper.  In the end, Strips of paper won out.  I wanted a bold background that was purely navy and coral.  The simple stamped image from Your Sublime really stands out against the bold background.    Your Sublime

These adorable images are so much fun to color!!!  I just love stamping with them.

Here are a few details:

  • The wheelbarrow image is stamped in versa mark ink on Hot Press watercolor paper and then heat embosses using basic black embossing powder.
  • Using Night of Navy, Calypso Coral, and Sahara Sand ink refills and a Aqua Painter the image was water-colored.
  • The background was made by gluing 1/2 inch strips of Night of Nave and Calypso Coral card stock to a panel of Whisper White.

Just so that you know!!!    Back embossing powder will be retiring soon!  So, be sure to buy yours now!!!

You’re Sublime

Over the weekend I attended a wonderful retreat in Huntsville, Al.  One of the things we did was a card Swap.  60+ demonstrators swapped cards that they had designed.  I truly loved seeing all the creativity that went into the swaps.  I am sharing with you today, the card I made for the swap.

One of the cuties stamp sets in the Annual Catalog is You’re Sublime.  I just am in love with the little crab.  Though when I first saw the set the little frog had my heart!  But, I have been won over by Mr. Crab!

Your Sublime

 

When thinking about how to use this adorable set that you just must have!!!  I was inspired by the 80’s IZOD color combination of bright pink and Kelly green.  I have always been drawn to this happy color combination.

How could you ever forget the Bermuda Bag…  My Mom carried this type of bag for years!!!bermuda-bag-turtles-by-all-about-you-design

Or these great berets… I think I had every color combination imaginable….

ribbon-barrettes-retro80s

 

I really do love these two colors together. I used Watermelon Wonder for my Bright Pink.  The green is Cucumber Crush.  And it really does still look wonderful together.  How happy is this little crab on his background of Cucumber Crush stripes.  IMAG2982

A few details:

  • The card base is Thick Whisper White card stock cut at 5 1/2 inches and scored at 4 1/4 inches
  • The layers are Watermelon Wonder (5 3/8 by 4 1/8) and Whisper White (5 1/4 by 4)
  • The stripes are stamped on Whisper White card stock using the Brushstrokes Stamp Set.
  • The Happy Birthday is stamped using Archival Basic Black and punched with the Washi Label Punch.
  • Mr. Crab is stamped using Archival Basic Black and then colored using the Watermelon Wonder Stampin’ Wright Marker.
  • The two circles are punched with the 1 3/4 and 2 1/2 inch punches
  • Make sure that you like fussy cutting …Mr. Crab can be a little tricky to cut out.  My tip is that if you work yourself into a corner move the paper around (verses the paper snips) to the direction you want to cut.  Once you get the hang of fussy cutting it is quite relaxing…

 

Here is a second version just to change things up a bit.  Mrs. Frog is quite cute, also! When you are making 60 of these cute little critters it is important to change it up a bit…..IMAG2980

 

The Supply List:

  • Stamp Sets:  You’re Sublime, Brushstrokes, and Remembering Your Birthday
  • Paper: Thick Whisper White, Cucumber Crush, Watermelon Wonder, Whisper White
  • Ink & Markers:  Cucumber Crush, Watermelon Wonder, and Archival Basic Black
  • Punches: 1 3/4 inch, 2 1/2 inch, and Washi Label
  • Other: multipurpose glue, stampin’ dimensionals, paper snips
