Love Is Kindness at JAI

Hello Crafters,

Today I am getting back into some challenges, so I begin with a challenge at Just Add Ink. The challenge this week is a Colour Combination Challenge JAI#248.

I saw this colour combination and fell in love straight away. I reckon these colours go so well together and I just received my Love Is Kindness stamp this week, so couldn’t wait to ink it up!

Love Is Kindness

The base card is Pool Party with a layer of Sahara Sand stamped with the Dictionary Background stamp in the coordinating ink. Then a piece of the Sahara Sand Lace Trim wrapped around this layer, before gluing it to the card base.

The flowers are stamped on Whisper White card stock using the Night of Navy ink and coloured with the set of Rich Razzleberry Blendabilities. The leaves are coloured using the Pool Party ink and the Aqua Painter. This layer is mounted onto Rich Razzleberry card stock and added to the card with dimensionals.

Love Is Kindness

I stamped the image a second time onto Sahara Sand cardstock and fussy cut the newspaper wrapping and added it with dimensionals, before adding a linen thread bow.

I added some candy dots to the bottom corner.

Be sure tho decorate the inside panel of your card and even the envelope helps tie it all together!

Love Is Kindness

Oh yay! I got an Honorable Mention for my card for this challenge!!!!

Blendabilities

Hello Crafters,

I have some exciting news for those of you who use our Blendabilities!

Stampin’ Blendabilities Markers are exclusive, alcohol-based marker sets that come in a 3-pack of light, medium and dark shades (of the same colour), and provide your projects a more saturated look with blended colours. We recommend using Stampin’ Up! Whisper White Cardstock with your Stampin’ Up! Blendabilities, but choosing any one of our cardstocks will add a unique look to your project. We also recommend that you only use them with ink pads from our list of compatible pads. And because traditional alcohol markers require a bit of training, we’ve developed a few videos to ensure that Blendabilities are easy-to-use for everyone! You can visit www.youtube.com/user/stampinupvideo to view them.

What Sets Them Apart:

  • The Stampin’ Up! rectangular barrel keeps your markers from rolling away!
  • Flat storage helps to maintain the life of each marker.
  • Each marker comes with a tip on each end: brush and fine.
  • Marker tips are made of nylon, which is superior to polyester which can fray.
  • Colour coded caps.
  • Stampin’ Up! markers coordinate wonderfully with our cardstock, and can be used with transparent sheets

Stampin’ Blendabilities are designed to work with our Memento Ink Pad. The markers also work well with several of our Classic Stampin’ Pads, noted below. Keep in mind that colours not listed are prone to smearing and aren’t recommended for use with Stampin’ Blendabilities. Also, remember that you’ll get the best blending results using Whisper White Cardstock, and when the stamped image is completely dry.

Classic Stampin’ Pads:
Always Artichoke
Baked Brown Sugar
Blushing Bride
Calypso Coral
Coastal Cabana
Crisp Cantaloupe
Crumb Cake
Crushed Curry
Daffodil Delight
Garden Green
Hello Honey
Marina Mist

Feathery Inspiration JAI#236

Hello Crafters,

Melbourne is a very windy day today and hoping to reach 29 degrees, so I will quickly share a card I have made for the Just Add Ink ‘Feathery Inspiration‘ Challenge before heading out to a family BBQ!

I love this colour combination and needed to make a card for my friends birthday next week, and guess what her favourite colours are? Yes, blues and greens!!!

Flower Patch Peacock

I started with a card base of Bermuda Bay and a layer of coordinating DSP. I then stamped the Flower Patch Photopolymer Stamps starting with Pool Party, then Pistachio Pudding then Bermuda Bay. I used the coordinating dies Flower Fair to die cut the images. The body of the peacock is Pacific Point card stock.

Flower Patch Peacock

I used the 1/2″ & 3/8″ circle punches and the heart is from the Owl Builder Punch.

I added some rhinestones to the feathers for some more interest and who doesn’t love a bit of bling?!!!.

I added the sentiment from the Petite Pairs Stamp Set in Pacific Point and used the small oval punch.

Peacock Flower Patch

The inside of the card I stamped an image from the Bordering Blooms stamp set in Memento Black ink then coloured with the coordinating Blendabilities.

Bloom with Hope & Blendabilities

Hello Crafters,

Bloom with Hope is bound to be a stamp set any Hostess will want to purchase with their Hostess Dollars when they gather some friends together for a Stampin’ party! Here is one example of how easy it is to use, colouring with the Blendabilities markers. This takes us all back to our childhood, colouring in!!!!

Bloom with Hope

I used Wisteria Wonder card stock to create the base of the card. The next layer is white card stock embossed with the decorative dots embossing folder. The DSP is from the Subtles Designer Series Paper Stack.

I love the little banner of silver glimmer paper to just add the right amount of sparkle and the pearls for a touch of class!

Sneak Peek ~ Blendabilities & In This Together stamp set

Hello Crafters,

Today I share with you some cards using the new Stampin’ Up! alcohol markers, Blendabilities and a new stamp set in the upcoming annual catalogue, In This Together.

I am just loving this stamp set, which has 3 stamps, but so far I have only used one of them!

I have stamped each of the images in Memento Black Ink which is also new to the Stampin’ Up! range, for specific use with the Blendabilities. Stazon will not work with these alcohol marker, as it will bleed.

The colour scheme used on this card is: Old Olive, Daffodil Delight & Black!

Blendabilities     IMG_4857

I embossed the Old Olive cardstock with the Beautifully Baroque TIEF. I coloured the feminine figure with the Blendabilities; her hair and skin with the skin tones set and her dress with the Old Olive set & Daffodil Delight set.

The Blendabilities come in sets of 3, being a Stampin’ Up! colour and 2 tones of it. So these coordinate with all of our other products, awesome!

Here is another sample using the Cherry Cobbler Blendabilities!

I then decided to make another with the Calypso Coral set, combined with the Coastal Cabana ones!

Blendabilities

Hello Crafters,

If you don’t know it yet, I brought home lots of yummy new products from the Stampin’ Up! Convention which will be available in the new 2014-2015 Annual Catalogue.

Over the next month or so, I will share with you, loads of ideas created using some of the new products. Are you excited??!!

Well here is the first one ~ Blended Bloom Stamp coloured with Blendabilities (alcohol based ink), ideal for shading!

Blended Bloom Blendabilities

The card base is Pear Pizzazz cardstock. The Blended Bloom is stamped with the new Black Memento Ink on Whisper White cardstock.  I coloured the image with the new Calypso Coral Blendabilities and used my So Saffron & Crushed Curry Stampin’ Write Markers for the centre. I then fussy cut the image.

I stamped the leaves (from Kinda Eclectic Stamp Set) in Pear Pizzazz ink onto Whisper White cardstock and layered it to the base with dimensionals. I added the Blended Bloom image with dimensionals also.

Here is a close up of the image.

Blendabilities Blended Bloom

The ribbon is Victoria Crochet Trim layered over Natural Chevron Ribbon and tied in the centre with a piece of Calypso Coral Twine and adhered to the card with glue dots.

I am in love with Blendabilities and cannot wait to add more colours to my collection.

What Sets Them Apart:

  • The Stampin’ Up! rectangular barrel keeps your markers from rolling away!
  • Flat storage helps to maintain the life of each marker.
  • Each marker comes with a tip on each end: brush and fine.
  • Marker tips are made of nylon, which is superior to polyester which can fray.
  • Colour coded caps.
  • Stampin’ Up! markers coordinate wonderfully with our cardstock, and can be used with transparent sheets.
