Quick and Easy Background Technique

I have a great share today on creating a quick and colorful background.  It is so easy and I don't know why I do not do this more with my card projects. 

All you need are two or three ink colors and Blending Brushes.  As you can see in the photo below, it looks like a hot mess after color is applied to basic white card stock.  But start adding stamps, die cut images and embellishments, and boy it comes to together in a cool way. 

#creativecardcloset #backgroundtechnique

The hot air balloon card is Calypso Coral and Daffodil Delight inks blended onto basic white, so just two colors for that one.  The stamp bundle is called Hot Air Balloon, but there is a whole product Suite called Lighter Than Air that is worth checking out.  The final touch for the pictured project is adding some Iridescent Foil Gems.

The other card was created by blending three inks onto basic white; Lost Lagoon, Azure Afternoon and Blackberry Bliss.  Who would have thought about putting those all together!  The stamps and dies are both called Rock Star.  The final detail was taking our Water Painters and splashing the background with water.  

One of the helpful parts of creating projects like these is using the New Glass Mat!  

#creativecardcloset #glassmat

The clean up of the blending of colors and the spritz of water on the above two projects, is made so easy with the glass mat and cleaning cloth!!!  I was amazed. 

You can get the Glass Mat Now (includes silicone tray and cleaning cloth) until February 29, 2024 included in your starter kit when you Join My Team!  

This is a Sale-a-Bration special and sold separately for $60 starting in March 2024.  

If you would like to Join My Team, and do not want the glass mat, you can pick $30 of any product of your choosing. 

***Want to know another perk of joining my team?  The projects and technique shared today came from Stampin' Up!  That's right, they share with us all the time and I am so grateful that they do.

I forgot the group photo... Boo

I can't believe it!  I had a fantastic event and I completely forgot to take a group photo.  Or at least everyone hard at work.  Have you ever done that?  Been with friends or family only to realize you did not take a group photo, or you're missing one person.  Ugh. 

Anyway, a little over a week ago, I had a day event, and we had so much fun.  We were together about 6 hours and crafted 10 projects!  With the lunch break, everyone was super busy in getting everything completed.  With a hiccup from the hall, I was able to quickly shift things to my childhood home.  Thanks to the best dad in the world for allowing me to do it.  And although I wanted my setup to be in stations, with everyone free to move around, how we did it I think worked just fine.   I'll use the quote from the movie Heartbreak Ridge, "Improvise, Adapt, Overcome".  I think that was Clint Eastwood's line. 

Everyone was greeted with table favors made with the Square Pillow Box and a 2023-2025 In-Color Treat Bag, both filled with goodies (chocolate, Paper Butterflies, Bakers Twine & some embellishments).   And I was excited to have everyone walk away with a door prize!

The Pillow Box is made with the Bee Mine Suite Collection!  I love this suite as the pillow boxes are included.

Here is a close up to the 2023-2025 In-Color Treat Bag.  The tag punch and words are from the Heartfelt Hexagon Bundle.

So like I said, everyone made 10 projects, one being the Pillow Box.  Here are 6 card projects featuring various awesome product from the Spring Mini Catalog and Sale-a-Bration products.

We BEE Stamping TEAM Blog Hop Love Is In The Air

Welcome to our We BEE Stamping TEAM Blog Hop - Love Is In The Air!

I am excited to show you 2 projects today, using the Sending Love Stamps and Dies.  Yes, it is a bundled product, but I wanted to show a card using the stamps only, and then for the more avid stamper; a card using 9 of the 15 dies from the bundle!  

Here is my stamps only card:

#sendinglovestamps #creativecardcloset

I used Poppy Parade card stock, ink and blends.  All images were colored with Stampin' Blends. 

A little special feature on this card is the Pink (Bubble Bath) envelope coming out of the mailbox.  I used my Paper Snips scissors, cut a slot, and slid part of the little envelope in, so it looks like it is coming out of the mailbox.  

Here is my stepped-up card: 

Note, when you purchase the Sending Love Bundle, you are earn a Free Sale-a-Bration Item.  Here, I used "Most Adorned 12 x 12 Specialty Designer Series Paper" as my free item and the background. 

#sendinglovebundle #creativecardcloset

I used Real Red card stock, ink and Stampin' Write marker.  The marker was used to draw stitching on the envelope, as I felt it needed to stand out a little from the white mailbox. 

TIP:  Use the 4-1/8 x 5-3/8 Basic White CS mat to die cut your mailbox, envelope and circle.  Paper saving!

Detailed Dogwood with Softy Sophisticated Embossing

Hello stamping friends.  I wanted to share this beautiful card I received in the mail.  It features several great products that are not in my stash.  I know, hard to believe, right?  I'm a floral girl at heart so I am surprised that I didn't Earn the Detailed Dogwood stamp set or the Softly Sophisticated  Bundle for FREE with Sale-a-Bration (SAB).  Let's take a look at the card first. 

#creativecardcloset #detaileddogwood

First off, this was sent to me by Linda Bauwin at Stamping with Linda.  Thank you Linda!  Love you too!

She stamped the dogwood flower on Thick Basic White card base.  I believe she colored with her Blends and although you can't see it in the photo, the flowers are covered in shimmer from the Wink-a-Stella marker.  Love that effect.  

The frame was cut with the "Perennial Postage Dies" and embossed with the Softly Sophisticated (SAB item) embossing folder.  

Love you words is very unique!  It comes from the "Thoughtful Moments" Hybrid Embossing Folder.  HYBRID = Dies & Embossing Folding that go together!!!

Linda topped off this lovely card with a few Champagne Iridescent Dots for some bling.
