Hidden Pond – Stampin’ Up! Card

DSC_0024

Hello there,

I used a couple of simple masking techniques this morning to create this peaceful scene along with a stamp from the Stampin’ Up! Swan Lake stamp set.  I hope this project inspires you to get stamping today.

Taking Flight – Stampin’ Up! Card

DSC_0025

Hello there,

I have used the Stampin’ Up! set, the Wildness Awaits a great deal.  It has been such a great stamp set to use for masculine cards.  I’m so sad to see it is on the retiring list, so if you haven’t purchased this stamp set, time is running out, get it now before it is gone, gone, gone for good.

 I used a brayer in the making of this card, if you do know how to use one, here is a link to my free tutorials:  FREE BRAYER TUTORIALS

Dragonflies at Play – Stampin’ Up! Card

DSC_0030

Hello there,

Sometimes I have so much fun with a stamp set that my mind starts whirling with new scenes to create with it.  Such as the case of the Touches of Texture stamp set that I used on my last project and was still on my desk this morning.  So, with a fresh scene inside of my head from Monday, I created today’s card.

Photos don’t do a project justice sometimes.  The dragonflies and the water have a super wonderful sparkle to them after I used the Clear Wink of Stella brush pen, #141897 over them and the camera just doesn’t pick it up well.  You will need to use your imagination, sorry.  But in real life it has a shimmery sparkly lovely look.  Well worth the two seconds it took to put it on the card.  Have you used it yet?

Lovely At Night – Stampin’ Up! Card

DSC_0017

Hello there,

I’m playing around with the Lovely as a Tree stamp set this evening.  One thing I love to do with this stamp set is to use the tree tops as bushes in the background to add some depth to the scene.  Add the big pine image in front to create some layering of images and that also adds depth.  I kept the layout simple to be more masculine. :)
