Creative Cards at Belair June 2018

Our first card that we will be making this month is using a stamp set called Accented Blooms from the 2018 Stampin' Up Annual Catalogue.  These cards below use Stampin Up incolours and the new uninked spectrum pads.  The flower stamp coordinates with tailored tag punch. 

I card above is using the 2017-2019 incolours with the spectrum pad inked with powder pink, berry burst, fresh fig, lemon lime twist and tranquil tide.  I have also inked up the focal stamp with the spectrum pad and lifted up the image with dimensionals.  Underneath is a 1cm strip of card in coordinating colours.

I card above is using the 2018-2020 incolours with the spectrum pad inked with blueberry bushel, call me clover, lovely lipstick, grapefruit grove and pineapple punch.  I have also inked up the focal stamp with the spectrum pad and lifted up the image with dimensionals.  Underneath is a 1cm strip of card in coordinating colours.

The second card that we will make is a card that I CASED from Erica Cerwin.   I changed the colours to blues.  Check out her card here.

Belair Creative Cards class this month learns Black Ice Technique

This month at Belair we will be learning a new technique called Black Ice Technique.  A fellow Stampin Up demonstrator, Melissa Kerman came up with this idea.  Google her name and the term Black Ice Technique and you will find lots of inspiration.  You can see a blog post of hers here.  .

On my first card I have used a piece of silver foil cardstock.  Swiped the foil with black archival ink.  I have then stamped the flower in archival Black.  Heat set.  I have applied versamark straight over the top and then added embossing powder over the top.  Heat set.  The flower has then been coloured with Stampin Blends.  Add more versamark and clear embossing powder and heat set again.  Layer on a piece of black mat.  Layer on the base which os soft sky.


My second card is a variation.  On a piece of foil card, apply ink as on our first card.  Emboss with the flowers from petal pairs textured impressions embossing folder.  Swipe the archival Black pad over the raised image.  Apply the versamark over the top and add clear embossing powder.  I just love the way this has turned out.  Layer on basic black and then on a whisper white base.  The greeting is from Beautiful Day stamp set.

Birthday Blooms

Have I told you that birthday blooms is one of my favourite stamp sets.  I just love the flower in this set, it is so pretty.  

This card is coloured using the Stampin Blends, I have used the pool party and marina mist for the flower and the leaves were coloured using old olive.  The flower is layered on a piece of glossy card which has had brusho sprinkled on and spritzed.  Greeting is from You're Inspiring stamp set.

The flower on this card is watercoloured using calypso coral and melon mambo.  Leaves are coloured using old olive.  The base is pear pizzazz and top layer is melon mambo.  I have used the sweet soiree decorative masks and the shimmery white embossing paste.
