December Blends Club: Birthday Delivery

Here are the projects we made in my Stampin’ Blends Marker Club in December. The stamp set for the club last month was Birthday Delivery, and the Blends included were the Night of Navy (Light and Dark), Pumpkin Pie (Light and Dark), and Ivory Stampin’ Blends. December also included a package of White Perfect Accents. The club also includes all the supplies for the three projects.

Sharing the Techniques

Hi, and welcome to the Stampin’ Dreams Blog Hop! This is a monthly hop with Stampin’ Up! friends around the world; you’re currently visiting Sarah Fleming in the USA. This month’s theme is Favorite Technique. Come on, that’s like asking me to pick my favorite kid! (Hint: It’s the one who isn’t whining at that moment.) After I narrowed it down to my top five or so, I finally just had to pick something. Okay, I couldn’t pick just one, so here I’m showing two of my favorites.

Stampin' Up! Ready for Christmas stamp set with glossy cardstock - Ink, Spray, & Smash technique with Emboss Resist technique - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts - SDBH

The techniques I used on my card are Emboss Resist and Ink, Spray, & Smash. I wanted to see what kind of background I’d get with the Ink, Spray, & Smash technique if I had already embossed an image on the Glossy Cardstock. The answer is: the fun kind!

I first heat embossed the tree from Ready For Christmas with Clear embossing powder. I did this on two card fronts. Then I dropped ink from Bermuda Bay, Pool Party, and Lemon-Lime Twist reinkers onto one piece of the cardstock, spritzed that card front with water, then smashed the two card fronts together and quickly pulled them apart. I blotted off excess ink and water with a microfiber cloth, then polished the backgrounds with the same cloth.

I added a piece of Bermuda Bay 3/8″ Stitched Satin Ribbon, then added a greeting from Ready For Christmas. To finish off the card, I colored a bunch of White Perfect Accents with the Dark Bermuda Bay Stampin’ Blends marker then added those to the tree.

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you like my card and that you’ve been inspired to try either of these techniques. You are currently visiting Sarah Fleming in the USA.

Stampin' Up! Be Merry paper, October 2017 Paper Pumpkin stamps, Trim Your Stocking thinlits, Stampin' Blends, embossing paste - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts

Hey! This is one of the projects we did at my team meeting this week. I really loved the stamp set that came with the October Paper Pumpkin — the sentiments are fantastic, so I wanted to use this for other projects besides the awesome shaker cards that came in the kit.

I pulled my sketch from the Global Design Project sketch challenge.

I love using someone else’s sketch as a jumping off point. It makes the card design come together so much faster.

I knew I wanted to use these two pieces of paper from the Be Merry designer series paper (this is part of the DSP sale that ends Tuesday). These are two of my favorite sheets from that paper. I also wanted to use another color, and I’ve always loved Cherry Cobbler and Pink Pirouette together, so I chose that. I added three drops of Pink Pirouette ink to about a teaspoon of embossing paste, then spread it over the card through one of the Pattern Party Decorative Masks with one of the Palette Knives. After the paste dried, I glued down the paper strips.

I die cut the snowflake with the Trim Your Stocking thinlits (that’s my favorite snowflake this year — I use it all the time!), then colored a White Perfect Accent with the Dark Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blends marker (those are available Wednesday). I stamped the sentiment in Cherry Cobbler and cut it out with a Stitched Shapes circle. Finally, I made a tiny bow out of Whisper White Baker’s Twine and curled the ends and added it to the card.
