For a Friend – Stampin’ Up! Card

DSC_0029_edited-25

Hello there,

Well I am back from the Stampin’ Up! trip to Thailand.  Whew!  That was a long, long way to travel (24 hours of planes and airports).  The resort we stayed at in Phuket was beautiful and just what I needed for some quality down time.  I look just miserable here don’t I, lol.  Yep, that’s me, the one with the farmers tan.  :)

IMG_0638  IMG_0410

It’s wonderful to experience different countries and their cultures.  It is also always wonderful to get back home.  I’m such a home body!  Today I am jet lagged and happy to take some time lazily stamping in my craft room.  I hope you enjoy the results.

My card was created using the direct to paper technique.  Gotta love a sunset!

Blast from he Past – Breast Cancer Awareness Card From 2010

Hey There,

I’m on the Stampin’ Up!  Thailand Trip right now and off the grid and will not be back until the 17th, so in my absence I decided to share some of my favorite card tutorials from the past with you.   This one is from 2010.

Now on with today’s free tutorial. . . . .  . .please note some of these supplies are retired but you can switch them out with current products.

Now let’s get started on that tutorial . . . . . .  . .

Supplies:

Stamps: Stampin Up Ribbon of Hope
Paper: Stampin’ Up Whisper White and Melon Mambo
Ink: Stampin’ Up Blushing Bride, Peach Parfait and Regal Rose
Accessories: Stampin’ Up Markers, sponges, circles & Oval die cuts, Big Shot Machine, crystal brad

Started by cutting the largest Circle and Oval using my Big Shot Machine and Dies.

Using the Negative image from the Oval Die Cut, masked the top center of a 4.5″ square piece of Whisper White card stock and sponged Peach Parfait ink in the oval opening.

Masked the Peach Parfait inked area using the Oval Die Cut and sponged Blushing Bride ink all over the rest of the card stock.

Drew a line around the Oval Die Edge using a Pretty in Pink marker.

Removed the oval mask and added the circle mask.  Sponged Peach Parfait ink along the edge of the circle mask to create “cleavage”.

Sponged Regal Rose ink at the bottom edge of the circle to create the underside shadow of the breast.

Moved the circle to the left side and repeated the Peach parfait and Regal Rose Sponging.

Sponged Regal Rose ink around the edges of the card stock.

Also stamped the “Ribbon of Hope” stamp using Blushing Bride ink.

Added some depth in the ribbon by adding Regal Rose and Pretty in Pink Marker to the ribbon image.

Added a bit of highlight with a white gel pen at the top of the ribbon image.

Added Whisper White and Melon Mambo card stock panels.  Also added a Pink crystal brad to the ribbon image.

Here is the finished card measuring 5.25″ square.
