Colour Blocking

At our last Avid Inkers meeting we learnt about colour blocking using card stock and I’ve finally had the chance to give it a go.  Love love love it!  It’s a very easy way to use up some of your scraps and have fun with colour.

Freshly Made Sketches 90 Sneak Peek

I am loving the Mosaic Madness Stamp Set and matching Modern Mosaic embossing folder (both available 2 July) so much that I just had to make another card using it today.  I struggled to get going today so to get my creative flow going I thought I’d try the latest sketch challenge from Freshly Made Sketches.  Here’s the sketch…
FMS Final 90-001And here is my card.

FMS 90 Mosiac Madness

Oh…and by the way…did I mention that there is also a matching punch (available 2 July)?  Told you I had awesome news.  Genuis…right!

Tips:

  • Ink up the embossing folder with your trusty brayer before running trough the big shot.
  • On a piece of plastic or glass squeeze out some versamark refill.  Use your clean brayer to cover the piece of embossed card with the versamark.
  • Cover the piece with clear embossing power and melt the powder using your heat tool.
  • Spray the reverse side of the piece of card with a little water and crumple.

Mosaic Madness Sneak Peek

Sneak Peek Mosiac Madness CPC ChallengeWell…I had tons of fun making this card.   I wanted to experiment with some techniques today and my aim was to create a glass tile look using the brand new Mosaic Madness stamp set and matching Modern Mosaic Embossing Folder.   For inspiration, I decided a challenge was in order and loved this layout from Craft Project Central

024

Inkydayz How Tos:

  • Dry emboss a piece of vellum using the Modern Mosaic  Embossing Folder (available 2 July).
  • Lay a piece of coloured card under your vellum so it’s easier to see where to stamp and using your Stamp-a-ma-jig stamp in the mosaic sections.  My aim was an old mosaic tile look, so I wasn’t fussy with my stamping.  I dried each one using my trusty heat tool prior to stamping the next as the ink takes a little longer to dry on the vellum.
  • Cut the card to size.
  • On a piece of plastic or glass squeeze out some versamark refill.  Use your brayer to cover your piece of stamped card with the versamark.
  • Cover the sheet with clear embossing power and use your heat tool to melt the powder.
  • Optional step.  Dry emboss again, lining up the previous embossing in the embossing folder. I found that this helped bring the pattern out better.
  • To make the faux washi tape, I simply coloured a piece of vellum by running the vellum across my ink pad and then used my finger to even out the colour.

  • Run a piece of vellum across the Crisp Cantaloupe ink pad (available 2 July), smooth with your finger and, voilà, you have Crisp cantaloupe washi tape!
  • Baked Brown Sugar and Crisp Cantaloupe (both available 2 July) make a lovely combination for the tile panel

New Stampin Up In Colours

Well my big brown box of fabulous new goodies has arrived.  Happy, happy , happy dance!

This is my first CASE from the new catalogue.  When I saw this card, I just had to try to re-create it.  I’ve used three of the fabulous 2013-2014 In Colours for this project, Pistachio Pudding, Crisp Cantaloupe and Baked Brown Sugar and I just love how these colours work together.  Because I don’t have the markers yet I did have to compromise a little but I think Pear Pizzazz works quite well.

This card is for a special someone and I’ll be popping it in a parcel with a handmade gift that I’ve been working on for some time.  I hope she likes it.

memorable moments case

Tips:

  • Use your stamp-a-ma-jig to line up the stamp across the card.
  • I’ve used my Pear Pizzazz marker and free-handed the lines, ovals, circles and a border around the stamps.  Don’t worry about perfection, here.  It’s meant to look hand-made remember.
  • Using your trusty paper snips, trim around the edges.

Sneak Peeks:

  • Welcome to the colour range Pistachio Pudding, Brown Sugar and Crisp Cantaloupe.  Three of the new In Colours in the 2013-2014 Stampin Up Catalogue (available from 2 July).
  • We also welcome back on oldie but a goodie, Pear Pizzazz (available from 2 July)
