Fast & Fabulous on Friday - Varied Vases

I love a punch, don't you?  I really like this Varied Vases stamp set and love that it came with a punch instead of dies.  So quick to punch out your images and have them punched out at once.  Have you seen this trick to stamping and punching out all of your images at once?

Create a template using a piece of the backing paper from the Designer Series Papers (the white backing) and punch out using the Vase Builder punch.  Label the front of it so you know which way to place it when working with it.  Keep the template in your stamp case for future use.

When you are ready to stamp, place the template on your workspace and take the stamps and place them face down in the punched out spaces.  Take an Acrylic E Block and pick them up on the block together.  Now you can stamp all of them on your card stock and punch them all out at the same time!  How great is that?

Fast & Fabulous on Friday - Combining Designer Series Papers for a Beautiful Effect

The Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper is absolutely gorgeous and pairs extremely well with the Delightfully Detailed Laser Cut Designer Paper.  I love the photographic images of this paper.  This card would be perfect for a birthday, a sympathy card or any occasion.   I used the Beautiful Promenade stamp set and dies to stamp and cut out the flower.  The flower was stamped using Melon Mambo but I stamped off once first so the intensity was diminished.

Welcome to the World Little Baby!

This card was made in honor of the birth of my grandniece Sydney Grace Neil who was born on July 9.  When Stampin' Up! announced the new color palette and there were several light pinks, I was kind of surprised until I got the paper in my hands.  The Petal Pink is definitely a peachy pink, the Blushing Bride has a dusky cast to it and the Powder Pink is just that - a powdery pink.  My least favorite was the Petal Pink until I started designing with it and I have fallen in love!

Are you having fun with this paper too?  Such beautiful patterns to work with.  The easiest way to glue it down is shown in my video but if you don't have time to watch it, just put a dollop on your silicone mat, mist lightly with water to dilute and use a sponge/dauber to mix and place on the back of the paper.  It is an easy way to apply adhesive to the back.

Fast & Fabulous on Friday - Another Delightfully Detailed Designer Series Paper Card....

Here is another quick & easy (no stamping!) card using the Delightfully Detailed Designer Series Paper.  This time, I took my sponge brayer and inked the leaf pattern piece of the DSP with Min Macaron ink.  I finished it with the largest Stitched Oval cut from Very Vanilla card stock and the Happy Birthday die cut from the new Rose Glimmer Paper.  I love the changes to the glimmer paper - it is so much easier to cut with the dies!  Again, I used the liquid glue/water combination on my Silicone Craft mat to apply adhesive to the back of the Designer Series Paper.

Just A Few Friends Stopping By to Say Hello!

 Today's card uses the Delightfully Detailed Designer Series paper.  Can you see where?  Yup, the little border on top of the ribbon and on the inside of the card.  I love that there is just enough of the border to use some both on the front and on the inside of the card.  Do you think they planned it that way?  Hmm....

I am so in love with the Animal Outing stamp set.  These guys are just so much fun!
On the inside of the card, I used the Animal Expedition Designer Series Paper which I cut with my ScanNCut to get the giraffe and hippo.  Check out my video to see how to make this card.

Fast & Fabulous on Friday - Delightfully Detailed Designer Series Paper....

Welcome back to another edition of Fast & Fabulous on Friday!  While I have been sharing projects using the Delightfully Detailed Designer Series Paper on my Tippin' on Tuesday videos, I wanted to share some quick and easy cards made using this paper as well.  How's this one for quick & easy?  No stamping at all - just a few die cuts!

If you have not been watching my videos on this paper where I show how to adhere your DSP to your cardstock, here's a brief description: 

What You Will Need:  Silicone Craft Mat, Tombow Liquid Glue, Water Mister Bottle & Sponge

Grab your Liquid Glue and squeeze a small amount onto the mat in the top left corner.  Spritz lightly on the glue and mix together using your sponge.  Place the DSP piece face down on the Silicone Craft Mat.  Sponge the back side of the DSP until you have it covered and then adhere to your cardstock.  Easy peasy!

Creating with the Delightfully Detailed Designer Series Paper - Card 1 in a Series of 9

I recently held a class where we used the Delightfully Detailed Designer Series Paper and I had so much fun making cards with this paper that all of a sudden I realized I already had 9 projects!  Since I didn't want my attendees to be here until midnight, I had to cut it down to 5 projects that they would create and then show them 4 other projects that they could make with the paper. 

This first card is made by using a portion of the 12"x12" floral piece and using it as a mask while spritzing it with an alcohol & reinker mixture.  Check out the video to see the whole process as well as how to attach the paper to the inside of the card below.
