Magical Dragonfly Evening – Stampin’ Up! Card

Magical Dragonfly

Alright stampers, question, how do you go about selecting the color of your card stock panels?  One thing I’ve found is keeping your color palette to a few colors is much more calming.  Repeating the same color that you have made your main image in your scene in your panels really makes that image pop.

I also love framing my scenes in a neutral dark color this brings the viewers eye into the scene.  Anyhow, that is how I pick my layout panels.  I would love to hear your tips, please share them in the comments below.  :)

Hello there,

It’s Friday!!!  Don’t you just love the weekend?  I feel as happy as these dragonflies look dancing in the last light of the day in today’s project.

I used the images from the Awesomely Artistic stamp set.  They look great in silhouette in front of that sun with it’s light shining on the water.

Hello there,

Today’s project showcases how braying ink at an angle for the background creates a nice soft light to shine down on an object.  I used that light effect to really make the images from the Awesomely Artistic Stamp Set stand out.

Dragonflies’ Delight – Stampin’ Up! Card

DSC_0040

Hello there,

First, I’m so happy to be in my studio creating away this morning.  I have a sick husband at home with the flu, ugh.  I’m hiding away trying not to get that bug.  I’ve sprayed a massive about of Lysol on everything and if he would let me I would spray some on Russ too.  Don’t get me wrong, I do feel very sorry for him, but no get well hugs from me until that bug is out of this house.

I created a calming card today.  This would be a terrific card to send anyone that needs a little bit of peace and tranquility in their life.  I think I’ll pop this in the mail to myself, just kidding.

Autumn Friend – Stampin’ Up! Card

DSC_0026_edited-1

Hello there,

As I was making today’s project I found myself re-inking every ink pad before I used it.  I don’t add a lot of re-inker to each pad just about 10 drops.  This is the perfect amount for my liking.  I really dislike an over inked pad, but I really don’t like a dry one.

I’m asked often, “how do you get your scenes to look so vibrant?”  Re-inking my ink pads often is the answer.  My number one ink rule is never purchase an ink pad without purchasing the re-inker to go with it.

Also, don’t be afraid to be quite heavy with sponging or brayering.  Keep in mind your projects will dry at least 2 shades lighter.  Nothing worse than your project looking faded out after it dries completely.  So, go forth and re-ink my friends.  :)

You can see just how this was created in my tutorial for this project.
