I finally inked up the Stampin’ Up! Young at Heart stamp set! I just did basic colouring with image using my Blends, I didn’t get too fancy with shading or anything, just used the 2 combos for each element of the image.
We’re playing a Post it Forward game over on my team group, where you post your name and address, and when the next person posts theirs, you send a card to them. Hope that makes sense. I thought this might be a good happy card to send.
I have used a STACK of colours in the image, I can’t even remember them all now, but the background DSP is from the Brights 6×6 Packs and are Granny Apple Green and Melon Mambo.
The sentiment is from Rooted in Nature, thought it was perfect for our current world.
So for today, I challenge you to get out a stamp set that has not been inked yet, have a play and send your card to someone in your address book.
The first of the month means a Stamping Society Video Class is being released. This month we are sharing projects from the new Ornate Garden Suite.
You may have recalled that I had created a video earlier in the month showing you how I coloured the flower image from Ornate Style stamp set, well I finally made it into a card, and saved it for today.
I loved how it turned out. After colouring, I cut the image out, and yes it is fussy cut. I even got my craft knife out to remove the white between the flowers and leaves!!
The background I ink blended Old Olive with Daffodil Delight, ran through the die machine using Brick and Mortar Folder, and flicked a bit of water over the card. Finished off with a sentiment and a few sequins.
Here’s the video again if you missed it first time around.
Here is our Blog Hop links for you to check out.

Here’s another card I finally got made up! Using the Happy Birthday To You Sale a Bration Set and colouring with Blends.
This one I fussy cut the image. Layered a few strips of matching colour behind the image. Flirty Flamingo, Old Olive and So Saffron. Instead of embossing on Black like i normally would, I chose Grey to match the cake stand. A little bit of Silver Metallic Thread behind the cake, some Rhinestones and you’re done!
Here’s the video that went with this image.
And a Colour Combination Graphic for your Pinterest Board (let me know if these are helpful to you, and I’ll keep putting them here)
2 Days to go!! Don’t miss out on your Sale a Bration Freebies!
I’ve finally gotten around to making cards with images I’d coloured for video tutorials! Here’s my latest using the Lovely Lily Pad Sale a Bration Set.
This one is sort of a Tall and Skinny Card. The finished size measures 14.8cm x 8.5cm. I’ve pretty much just used all scraps of paper that were also sitting on my desk (okay, they were on the floor in cardstock piles but whatever!)
Here’s the video on how I coloured the Lily with Stampin’ Write Markers, in case you missed it the first time round.
And if you like to save Colour Combos for later in your Pinterest Board, here’s a graphic for you to use.
Don’t forget you have just 3 Days left to earn your FREE Sale a Bration Items.
Some more colouring for me today, it helps me get lost in my own world instead of the one that’s out there. Today I made an Ornate Style Birthday Card, as in Ornate Style the new stamp set coming out!
The card I kept simple, the colouring – not so simple! I stamped Saddle Brown Stazon onto our Fluid Watercolour Paper and just played. I put colours together that I normally wouldn’t to see what I’d end up with. Here’s a breakdown of each:
I am so excited to share projects with you from demonstrator friends around the world all using the Best Dressed Designer Series Paper. I am honored to be a part of this design team and love that we can all share projects using the same DSP. Make sure to check out all the blogs (list at the bottom) and enjoy these projects from around the world.
For my card I’ve used the soft and feminine floral side of the Best Dressed Papers. I found that the Beautiful Friendship stamp set works really well the paper I chose.
I love how you can put large patterns with small patterns to give a nice balanced finish.
I’ve taken the sentiment from the Timeless Tropical Stamp Set, and white embossed on Petal Pink card. I used the Painted Dies to cut out the sentiment and a little border edging to the bottom (from Mossy Meadow) Behind it, I’ve stamped a flower and some leaves from the Beautiful Friendship Stamp Set in Petal Pink, Daffodil Delight, and Mossy Meadow inks.
The twine is from the Magnolia Lane Ribbon Combo Pack, with a few sequins to finish off my card.
With so many paper patterns and colours in this pack, you really make a dent in your card stash!
So now it’s time to see what the rest of the Design Team has made using the DSP. Make sure to visit everyone to see all the fun things you can do with this paper.
