SAVI Sunday 62 - Soft Pastels with Sponge Daubers

Welcome to my SAVI Sunday Post... that's Stamping & Various Inspiration.  Watch My Video Here

Today's inspiration is our Soft Pastels Assortment.  These are pastel chalks that come in Stampin' Up! colors (Daffodil Delight, Mango Melody, Coastal Cabana, Granny Apple Green, Night of Navy, Gorgeous Grape, Mossy Meadow and Poppy Parade).  What a great assortment of colors.  Stampin' Up! used to carry pastels many years ago and I have to say... these are Way Better!  

In my Video, I show you the most basic way to use the pastel chalks.  You simply scrape the chalk sticks to get some lose pigment powder, dip a sponge dauber into the powder and color.  But first, the magic step is to stamp your image with VersaMark ink.  This is the clear, sticky ink most people use when they want to heat emboss.  Just like in heat embossing, the embossing powder sticks to the VersaMark Ink, so does the pastel chalks. 


Here is a close up of the flowers:


Card Details:

  • Basic Black card base 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 scored and folded at 4-1/4 on the long side
  • Layer of Granny Apple Green CS 4 x 5-1/4
  • Before adhering the Granny Apple Green, die cuts some leaves and the scallop circle
  • Basic White CS 3-3/4 x 5 and die cut the right long edge with edge die from Hand-Penned Bundle
  • Adhere above to card on top of Granny Apple Green which will hide your die cut areas
  • Take a 2-3/4 x 3-3/4 piece of Basic White and stamp floral image with VersaMark Ink
  • Using paddle end of Pick Tool, scrap pastels to make small piles of powder
  • Dip sponge daubers into powder and color image (use separate sponge dauber for each color
  • Die cut flower and add to card from with Stampin' Dimensionals
  • Stamp words with Memento Black ink, die cut circle and add to scallop circle with Dimensional.  Add to card
  • Add embellishments.  I used Basic Rhinestones on some of the flower centers. 

I hope you try out our new Basic Pastels Assortment chalks.  I will be showing additional ways to use the chalks so make sure you are subscribed to my YouTube Channel.

8 Backgrounds & A Bonus using Succulent Dies

Hello There!  Lots to look at today and I'm excited to share these projects!  Every Wednesday, I go Live on Facebook (@Stamp with Lisa Brown) at 8:30 pm EST.  

Here is a edited version of my Live recording from two weeks ago when I featured the beautiful background die from the Potted Succulents.

I made 8 Different Backgrounds with A Bonus!  I have since completed each one using the Simply Succulents Bundle (stamps and dies).

1. )  Classic White-on-White


2.)  White on Dark Background (Blackberry Bliss)


3.)  Dark over Light  (same color family... blues with Coastal Cabana & Bermuda Bay)


4.)  Color over Color (using same color cardstock... Mango Melody)


5.)  Using Snippets of the Dies  (die in Basic White on Soft Sea Foam cardstock base)


6.)  Use Die as a Mask for Embossing Paste

I die cut the background die 2x's and glued them together to make thicker for the Embossing Paste depth. 


7.)  Die cut using Foil paper


8.)  Die cut in Basic White and using Blending Brushes to spread colors over die cut background.  

Make sure to color over a piece of Basic White at least 6 x 6


BONUS or #9.)  Use the negative from the colored die above.... This is probably my favorite!


Main colors I used for coloring the succulents are:  Highland Heather, Balmy Blue, Old Olive, Soft Sea Foam, and Calypso Coral Blends Combo Packs.

The gray pots are stamped on Basic White and colored with Smokey Slate Blends Combo Pack and the Color Lifter.  The brown pots are stamped on Soft Suede card stock.
