Mix It Up with Stampin’ Up!

Mix It Up with Stampin’ Up!

One of the fun things about a new catalog getting ready to launch is the mixing the old with the new.

In my case today, I’m mixing new and newer.  Ha.

I’ve been dying to use the Wherever You Go stamp set and finally had the opportunity.

This stamp set is awesome for a collage looking card, but I had another idea.

 

Create It!

Mix it up, Stampin' Up!, Wherever You Go

 

The images in the Wherever You Go stamp set are perfect and it was an excellent set to pair with the new Sending Thoughts stamp set.

Another perfect mix it up product is the Urban Underground Specialty Designer Series Paper.  WOW! I’ve been playing with this designer paper the entire day and I love it.

Finally a perfect designer paper to create manly cards.

To create this card:

  • The designer paper measurements: 1-1/2″ x 5-1/4″, 2-1/4″ x 5-1/4″.  These pieces are placed onto a Basic Black cardstock measuring 4-1/8″ x 5-3/8″.
  • Place a strip of Basic Black cardstock between the designer series papers measuring 1/2″ x 5-1/4″.
  • Cardstock base is Whisper White Thick cardstock measuring 4-1/4″ x 11″.
  • Main focal point is Whisper White cardstock measuring 3″ x 4″.  Stamp images using Basic Black and Delightful Dijon Classic Inks.
  • Stamp greeting using the Sending Thoughts stamp set, die cut using the Tags & Labels Framelits.

  • Place a small doily under the die cut tag.

Oh So Succulent Tips

Oh So Succulent, Stampin' Up!

 

One of my favorites about this stamp set is the greetings.  Especially the one on this card.

Here are a few tips when creating this card:

  • Stamp the solid image using So Saffron ink, then lightly tap the edges of the image onto the Mint Macaron ink onto Whisper White cardstock.
  • The outlined image is stamped using Bermuda Bay ink.
  • Fabulous Foil Designer Acetate was placed over Bermuda Bay cardstock and placed along the edge of the card.
  • Gold Metallic Enamel Shapes were added to the center of the flowers and around the floral arrangement.

  • Wrap the banner around the Whisper White cardstock and staple in place.

 

 

 

Mix it Up!

The Oh So Succulent stamp set is perfect to mix with a few favorites from the Holiday Catalog.

The basket image stamped in this card comes from the Basket of Wishes stamp set.

Tips & Tricks 

  • Use a sponge inked with Pool Party ink, sponge in a circular motion to create a background.   Then use Cucumber Crush ink sponging over the Pool Party ink blending the inks together.
  • Stamp the basket, color using Soft Suede ink and Early Espresso ink using a Blender Pen.
  • Add the Metal Rimmed Pearls to accent the card.
