Bird Banter with Stampin' Blends.

Hi and welcome!
Today's card uses the (retired) Bird Banter stamp set. Did you purchase this? Well, I figured I would still share this with you so if you managed to get hold of it while it was available then lucky you! I loved it :-D
So, we actually made this card in one of my Blends classes and I couldn't choose just one bird so I went with two >-<
 The little background spots are made with the same colour blends pens topped with drops using the fine tip glue pen.
 To colour this parrot I used the following pens:
Light and Dark: Coral, Daffodil and Bermuda Bay plus light Smoky Slate and a colourless blender for the face.
 And for this cute little Cockatiel I used Light and Dark Daffodil, Light Smoky Slate and the colourless Blender pen.
 Of course I used Light and Dark Old Olive for the leaves too :-)
Finish with a little gold thread and top with a sentient to finish.
So, I hope you like today's card? Quite a few of the Blends pens are back in stock with more due to arrive shortly (customs issues are delaying them, I believe), I'm looking forward to adding to my collection!
OK, I'll be back on Friday with another card, 'till then, Happy Stamping!

Pink Ombre Delightfully Detailed Paper

Hello there,
I have another card for you today using the Delightfully Detailed laser-cut paper.  For this card I used a simple watercolour wash with ink pads to create a pink ombre effect starting with Melon Mambo then Flirty Flamingo then finishing with Powder Pink at the top...
 Once it was dry (I used my heat tool to help speed this up) I added it to a same sized white card background before layering onto black card and wrapping with Powder Pink shimmer ribbon.
I finished the card with a sentiment (from Picture Perfect Birthday) heat embossed in white and layered it onto a Smoky Slate base.
I've really enjoyed using this paper and still have a couple more cards to share so I do hope your loving it too ;-)
Thanks so much for looking today, back soon with another make!

In Every Season CAS Card in Berry Burst

Hello there and happy Sunday!
I hope you weekend is going well? I have a sweet card for you today using the "In Every Season" stamps again, see more with this set HERE, and I used Berry Burst ink pad with blender pens to colour this image...
 I layered the image using stitched shape framelits and Fresh Fig card for a darker tone.
Adding some Berry Burst ribbon that I found in my "box of shame" half finished card makes. I like how the simple strip just lifts this card though, do you?
And that's it! I think these small images lend themselves really well to clean and simple cards so that's it!
Thanks so much for stopping by today, I hope you enjoy the rest of your SUnday and I'll be back tomorrow with another card :-)
'Till then, happy stamping!

Healing Hugs Photrealistic Roses

Have you seen these brilliant new photorealistic stamps in the new catalogue? Stampin' Up! has created these specially etched stamps that allow you to create these different depths of colour with just one inking! They are also all sized so that you can ink the stamp in the centre of our standard ink pads to avoid any lines from having to ink over the edges (I love how SU! think of everything!)
 I am totally in love with this rose set, called Healing Hugs, and I made this card on a bit of a whim after just having to have a play with the flowers...
Of course you can add in other colours with a sponge dauber to make them even more detailed but I just used Flirty Flamingo and Pool Party for these.
 I decided to trim these out and fold them at the edges slightly for a little more texture.
 Finish with sequins and a gold heat embossed sentiment before adding to a Grey Granite (my new favourite neutral!) card base.
So, what do you think of these clever new style of stamps that SU! have named "DistINKtive"? I am in love with them :-D Plus, there is also another set with a lovely Koi Carp image (and more) if that's your kind of thing, I have already seen quite a few lovely makes with them.
Let me know your favourite stamps from this catalogue in the comments ;-)
OK, thanks for looking today and I'll be back tomorrow with another make, I hope I'll see you here.
