Two for one!

Two for one!
Here’s a great idea to double your card making speed. It was something Jennifer Maguire did on her blog, making one image work on two cards! Here I have used a Sunflower stamp from the soon to be released Celebrate Sunflowers Stamp set. I coloured the image and two leaves using Blends ( there’s a video on my Facebook page). Next I fussy cut the images, cut the large flower in half using my mini trimmer and then added Blend ink around the white cut edge (I like this as it makes the cut images look a bit more finished!) For one card I sat the images  on top of their respective die cut outlines, which are a fraction bigger. I adhered these to a Blend splattered base and places the sentiment on top. For the second card I kept it a bit more simple by stamping the sentiment straight into the base and then added the flower and leaf on foam dimensionals. Hope you like this idea, Rebecca x.

For all you do- no water watercoloring technique

For all you do- no water watercoloring technique
Hello, I hope you are well- back round to Wednesday again! Today I wanted to share a technique you may not know about, watercoloring with Stampin' Up! blender pens. If you'd like to know more please read on.... Firstly I chose to heat emboss the outline if my image from the Ornate Style stamp set with white embossing powder- this is not essential for the watercoloring part but just looks lovely (and helps you colour within the lines). To colour the image I took 3 Stampin' Up ink pads and three Blender pens, these are double ended like the Blends. I use the brush tip of the pen to pick up a very small amount of ink from the pad and the colour onto the image. As you colour the intensity of the ink fades so I always start in the areas I want to be the darkest/most intense (shadows or the middles of flowers etc).  To clean the brush tip you simply continue to colour until all the ink has "run-out" or you can scribble onto scrap paper.  I love

Thank you berry much!

Lets celebrate you
Hello, I'm back again and I'm sorry but I've used the Bloom and Grow set again ha ha, I do LOVE it though and I'm so glad that it is carrying over to the new catalogue which is out in June. Here I've coloured the image with Stampin' Blends and mounted over some extra stamped foliage and splatters- I've also used a sentiment from the set. I've embellished the image with Silver Pearls , Wink of Stella pen and can you see the grey Blends line I've added around the white layer- just gives a bit more depth before mounting it on coordinating coloured card. Thanks for stopping by today, Rebecca x

Thanks Magnolia

Thanks Magnolia
Hello, Thanks for stopping by today and having a look at my car for today. I've used the lovely Good Morning Magnolia stamp set and coloured it with Stampin Blends . Then I fussy cut it and popped it on dimensionals over some extra stamps,  coloured leaves and of course some Blends splatters. I always use Memento Ink for the outline of images I'm going to colour in with blends. I've also covered the flower in a Wink of Stella for the added shimmer. The sentiment is also from the same stamps set. Thanks for stopping by! Rebecca x

Forever starts today

Forever starts today
Hello, thanks for stopping by today! Today I am sharing another card made with the Bloom and Grow stamp set- I did a little time-lapse video on my face book page ( @stampinupwithmellymoo ) of me colouring these images using Blends the other day. I love how easy they are to colour and how the little additional elements sit so well under the main bouquet. Here I also cut some of the large flowers out of the large bunch and popped them up on some dimensionals.  I've added blend splats to the background and lots of Rhinestones - after all this is a wedding card so it needs to be special.  If you click on the product names it will link you to the SU website with more details, don't forget to use the current Host code which you can find to the right of this post or on my Facebook page.  Thanks for stopping by today, it would be lovely if you left a comment saying what type of things you'd like to see on my blog in the coming days and weeks!
