Stampin’ Up! Whitewashed Calming Camellia with Video Tutorial

Good morning and welcome to half-way-thru-the-weekend!  Our day yesterday was chilly (says Capt Understatement) but sunny!  We STILL spent most of the day inside.  And that included the Finn – although he did “help” his dad run some things up to the mailbox in the van.  Any chance for a ride works for Finny – even if it’s just to the gate and back! 🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️

If you were able to join me for my Facebook Live last night – I appreciate you spending part of your day with me.  If not, but you’d like to see the replay, here ’tis on YouTube!

I saw a video the other day from Lisa Freeman – she demonstrated a technique she called Whitewashing – using the Calming Camellia stamp set and some of my favorite colors.  I loved how it looked so much that I gave it a go!  Take a look-see:

I borrowed the layout idea from the Tuesday Morning Sketches challenge!

I started with a panel of Soft Succulent that forms the basis of my card front.  In the two diagonal corners, I stamped the largest floral from the Calming Camellia set in Evening Evergreen ink – remember this is the gorgeous Host Set for Sale-A-Bration – you can see the deets on how YOU can get it for free down below!

Then I used an older Blender Pen – kind of dried out! – to color the flowers (not the leaves!) – using my Whisper White ink.  I’d tried a couple of ways of getting my ink – but ended up liking the smoosh-the-acrylic-block-into-the-stamp-pad method the best, with the addition of a few drops of the White Refill to “pull” from”, too.  The video shows what I mean! 🙂

I colored both flowers until I was happy – the white fades as it dries, so you might want to add more here and there like I did.

Then I cut the middle of the panel out with the largest of the rectangle dies in the Stitched So Sweetly Die set.  I adhered the frame to an Evening Evergreen mat for the card front.

I embossed the cut-out-middle in the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder and popped it back in place on the card front with Black Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the large Calming Camellia floral in Evening Evergreen again on Soft Succulent and cut it with the second-to-largest Stitched So Sweetly rectangle (two sizes down from the first die cut) die.

Then I colored the flower with the Blender Pen and Whisper White ink – using a little more of the ink to make this floral a little brighter than the ones on the card front.  I adhered the die cut to the card front with Liquid Glue.

Using a little strip of Stampin’ Seal, I adhered a loose “z” of Petal Pink 1/8″ Cotton Ribbon.

On a piece of Basic White, I stamped the Calming Camellia sentiment in Evening Evergreen and cut it with a Stitched So Sweetly label die.

I popped the sentiment over the ribbon with a few of the Black Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added some of the light pink Polished Dots – one on the sentiment and a couple out on the card front – and the card front was done.

On the inside, I used my Soft Succulent ink pad and a Sponge Dauber to ink the leaf image from Calming Camellia and stamped it in the corner of a Basic White panel.  I added another of the light pink Polished Dots.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to an Evening Evergreen mat and into my Thick Basic White card base, popped the card front on with Black Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Basic White Medium Envelope got the Soft Succulent Calming Camellia leaf on the front…

…and a little Soft Succulent 2021-2023 In Color 6″ x 6″ DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Ooooh – I LOVE this coloring technique, don’t you?  It is PERFECT with the Calming Camellia set  – and I love it in Soft Succulent and Evening Evergreen.  But…what other color combinations could you come up with that would be gorgeous?  And I bet there are a ton of stamp sets that would ALSO be wonderful with this coloring technique!  Like…Hand PennedDahlia DaysFlowing Flowers!  Pull out your Whisper White ink pad, an acrylic block and one of those old Blender Pens and….get to coloring!

I hope you like!

Last night I was in “his” spot.

Turnabout’s fair play, I guess…

One of these days we’re going to need to have a discussion about who – exactly – has the opposable thumbs in this pack.

Stampin’ Up! Beauty of Friendship and Earth Side-Fold Fun Fold Card

Good morning and welcome to your week!  I hope you had a great weekend! We got some things done – not least of which was getting catalogs in the mail.  And doing a little rat-killing in my craft room.  That’s what we call those pesky little “things to do and fix” – nothing huge, just stuff that needed doing, you know? 🙂

We ALSO had a super fun Amy’s Inkin Krew Team meeting on Sunday!  We talked a little business and then three of us presented a project using the Beauty of Friendship bundle and most of us ALSO used the gorgeous Beauty of the Earth DSP.  Interestingly – all THREE of us did a fun fold! 😉  I thought I’d share my project with you today! Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! A Peaceful Cabin in a Peaceful Place for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good morning, y’all!  It’s Thursday – which means it’s time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!!  We’ve got a theme challenge to work with and I’m excited to see what everyone brings to the table – I just know you’re going to see a ton of awesome-ness on the hop today!

When I saw the theme – I right away thought of the pretty gray snowflake paper in the Peaceful Place Specialty DSP – so that became the foundation for my card.  To it, I added a few elements from the Peaceful Cabin bundle.  Take a look-see:

And – here’s our challenge!

I also borrowed from another challenge – the sketch over at The Paper Players to help me with my layout.

I started by cutting three pieces of the Peaceful Place Specialty DSP – one long one and two smaller ones.  Hint: they’re all the same width!  I adhered these with Liquid Glue to a Polished Pink mat for the card front.

Then I used a little Liquid Glue to adhere a Wonderful Snowflake to the card front – a little off-center!

I stamped the Peaceful Cabin image in Basic Gray on Basic White and fussy cut it out.  Then I brushed all the “snow” with my Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush.

Using the dies in the bundled Cabin Dies – I cut 6 Evening Evergreen pine trees.

I adhered four of the trees to the card front with Liquid Glue, then popped the fussy cut cabin over top with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Using the fun little “fence” die – I cut a Soft Suede fence panel and adhered it to the front of the cabin with Liquid Glue.

I used a Stampin’ Dimensional at the bottom of a large tree and a little more Liquid Glue to adhere it over the fence panel.

On a piece of Basic White, I stamped the Peaceful Cabin sentiment in Polished Pink and cut it out with a die from the Ornate Frames die set.

I used a Stampin’ Dimensional and some Liquid Glue to adhere the sentiment.

I added some Iridescent Rhinestone Basic Jewels (NEW in the Jan – Jun 2022 Mini Catalog and available 4 Jan!) here and there and the card front was done.

On the inside, I stamped just two of the three-tree image from Peaceful Cabin in Evening Evergreen.   Then I stamped the fence image over top in Soft Suede – using a Blender Pen to soften the edges and fill it in a little.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Polished Pink mat and into the Evening Evergreen card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Basic White Medium Envelope got a repeat of the trees and fence image from Peaceful Cabin on the front…

…and more Peaceful Place Specialty DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  A Peaceful Cabin in a snowy Peaceful Place!  So pretty – I love these tree die cuts – they’re some of the bestest I’ve seen!  And – not for nuthin’ – the Peaceful Cabin stamp set and Cabin Dies are retiring soon – so…if you don’t have them…you know what to do! 🙂

I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Honeybee Home Blooms Sneak Peek with Such Good News!

Hello again and happy Monday!  I don’t know about y’all – but…four-day weekends really throw me for a loop. I have trouble remembering what day it is ANYway.  Having a holiday on Thursday just puts me in a spin! 🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️

My card today is simple – but super sweet (she says modestly!).  I used the new Heart & Home DSP and the Honeybee Home stamp set – with the bundled Honeybee Blooms Die set (all coming on 4 Jan in the Jan-Jun 2022 Mini Catalog.  Unless…you JOIN the team – this is a GREAT time to do that!  THEN you can get them on…Wednesday, 1 December!).  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one is from the Freshly Made Sketches challenge this week.

I started by matting a piece of the pretty gray woodgrain paper from the Heart & Home DSP on Highland Heather for the card front.

Using the next-to-smallest of the skinny dies in the Stitched Rectangle Die set, I cut a piece of the Misty Moonlight paper from Heart & Home and adhered it with Liquid Glue.

Using Stampin’ Seal, I adhered a length of 3/8″ Denim Ribbon (part of the Heart & Home Suite and available on 4 Jan) across the card front.

I used the two dies in the Honeybee Blooms die set to cut a Highland Heather and a Misty Moonlight flower- which I then adhered on the left side, over the ribbon, with Liquid Glue.

I tied a simple bow from Linen Thread and adhered it with a Glue Dot.

On a piece of Basic White, I stamped the uber-sweet Honeybee Home sentiment in Highland Heather.  Then I cut it with the smallest skinny Stitched Rectangle Die.

Using double-stacked Stampin’ Dimensionals, I adhered the sentiment over the top of the ribbon and the bow.

Finally, I added a few Basic Gray dots from the new Classic Matte Dots (from the Jan – Jun 2022 Mini) and the card front was done.

On the inside, I stamped two of the flowers from Honeybee Home in Highland Heather and Misty Moonlight.  I nestled a small Basic Gray Classic Matte Dot in the foliage.

I used Stampin’ Seal to adhere the panel to a Highland Heather mat and into my Smoky Slate card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Basic White Medium Envelope got the Honeybee Home flowers on the front in Misty Moonlight and Highland Heather…

…and more of the Heart & Home DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Wow – this is going to be SUCH a popular Suite!  This amazing Honeybee Home stamp set and bundled Honeybee Blooms dies are so beautiful!  Add the floral and woodgrain beauty of the Heart & Home DSP and… it’s a winner for sure!

Finn Fan Fix 

Do you see them?

No?  Well – I have the solution for you.

For the first time on a WordPress Blog, may I present….

The Finnomatic 5000!

Yes – it’s the first Deer Surveillance and Alerting Security System available now for Home Use!

Routine maintenance is…

…minimal and the system remains active during the scheduled maintenance activity.

Complete with convenient sighting mechanisms….

System can be activated and the home owner can go on his way, secure in the knowledge that the homefront is safe from rogue deer.

Wascally wabbits.

Sneaky Squirrels.

None will make it past the Finnomatic 5000!
